If not, what are you waiting for? I have researched Plastic Surgery and I’ve learned it takes a lot of schooling and residency to become a surgeon, just like a coroner. There are also different categories of plastic surgery, like reconstructive surgery or cosmetic. I’m also now newly interested in being a forensic coroner after the research I’ve done.

The main idea of this paper is to inform those who would like to learn more about this career choice. I will be doing research on a Morgue Technician. This slightly unusual topic caught my attention when looking up possible jobs for people with a life science degree. I emailed two people and asked if they would like to contribute to some class research I was doing Ms. Marie Claire stepped to the plate. This occupation helps to discover the reason for an individual's death through studying specimens, records, and photographs of the body and helping to prepare an autopsy report.
“Genetic counseling: An educational counseling process for individuals and families who have a genetic disease or who are at risk for such a disease. Genetic counseling is designed to provide patients and their families with information about their condition and help them make informed decisions.” (medterms.com) Genetic counselors are the professional that sit down with the parents of an affected child and go over step-by step the process to how they might have gotten the disorder and how to cope and prepare for the disorder. Personally, I believe the technology to help people find out if they are carrying or have a genetic disorder is absolutely amazing. The speaker we had in class informed us on how the system works and what a Genetic Counselor has to deal with in terms of patient care and follow up. There is a big responsibility as a counselor to make sure the child is well taken care of if he or she is diagnosed with a serious disorder such as sickle cell anemia, which she told us that it is one of the most common disorders they deal with.
The patient may also need to have x-rays or an MRI which will show damage to the ligaments and muscles. If the amount of injury cannot be determined by an x-ray or MRI, another procedure, called an arthroscopy, may also be done (See Figure 2). “During arthroscopy, your doctor inserts surgical tools through one or more small cuts (incisions) in the knee to look at the inside of the knee” (ACL Injuries). If the damage is significant, it is very likely that reconstruction surgery will need to be done. After surgery, there may be many months of
When first suspecting that a child has muscular dystrophy, a doctor will do a physical exam, and take a family history to find any information about any other members with the same disease. In addition, the doctor may perform tests to determine what type of MD is involved and to rule out other diseases that could cause the problem. These might include a blood test to measure levels of serum creatine kinase, an enzyme that's released into the bloodstream when muscle fibers are deteriorating (DMD 45).Elevated levels indicate that something is causing muscle damage. The doctor also may do a blood test to check the DNA for gene abnormalities or a muscle biopsy to look for patterns of deterioration and abnormal levels of dystrophin, a protein that helps muscle cells keep their shape and length (DND 53). Unfortunately, there is no treatment for the muscle weakness and wasting of Duchenne muscle dystrophy.
Research in a Health and Social care setting In this essay, you will find out why research is useful in a Health and Social Care setting. Functions of research: One function of research is identifying needs. Health and Social care workers use research to identify the needs of an individual. The information from the research allows the professional to make decisions about suitable treatments and care plans suited to the individual. For example a doctor may take blood pressure and the heart rate of a patient and use it to find a treatment.
It breaks down and degenerates the knee, or just even causes unbearable pain when doing everyday tasks. Knee degeneration is when the knee is broken down and not able to work properly due to arthritis, being overweight, or just having bad knees. The two types of surgery are partial knee replacement and total knee replacement. Depending on the severity of the knee, the doctor will decide which surgery needs to be conducted. The goal of this report is to educate those who aspire to enter into the Kinesiology field at Vernon Junior College.
Assistants are responsible for preparing the patient for procedures by giving a foot bath and clipping toe nails as well as bandaging the patient’s feet. Some assistants are required to take x-rays of patient’s legs, ankles, or feet, cast for orthotics and apply fiberglass casts to the patient’s ankle or foot. Podiatric assistants are required to help with diabetic foot exams and noninvasive exams when the state law permits. Different states have different requirements when it comes to assisting with surgical procedures.

The person I job shadowed was Randy Makam. His job responsibilities as a physical therapist is to see patients with back and neck injuries, strains and fractures and conditions like multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and spina bifida, As a physical therapist Randy had to be knowledgeable in these conditions and prepared to answer patient questions and address concerns. Physical therapists interview patients with these conditions to learn more about their symptoms and guide their treatment plan. The education needed to become a physical therapist is you'll need 4 years of college and then 2 years of PT to get a DPT (Doctorate of physical therapy.) The undergraduate requirements vary slightly by school, but typically include a year each of general bio, chemistry, and physics.
