Superficial phlebitis is easily treated with warm compresses and anti-inflammatory medication. Deep vein phlebitis or referred to as DVT ( deep vein thrombosis), affects the veins in the legs and deeper in the arms. Blood clots can then form and travel to the lungs, which could be dangerous (Figure 3). Superficial phlebitis usually occurs anywhere from 25% to 45% or more (www.netwellness.org). Another complication is a hematoma.
A patient comes in with a hot inflamed toe, how does the circulatory system contribute to this process? Inflammation of toe refers to a mechanism that a human body carries out as a reaction to any kind of injury or any kind of Infection that has developed inside the foot. There are many reasons which result in inflammation of toe such as gout, increase of uric acid levels in the body, rheumatoid arthritis, in growth of toe nails and so on (Emmerson, 1996) The circulatory system contributes to this problem by causing inflammation: i.e. “Inflammation helps to remove the harmful agent and by doing so encourages subsequent healing. The inflammatory response is a collection of overlapping events.
B -Environmental Lung Diseases: *Result from inhaled dust or chemicals *Pneumoconiosis is a general term used for a group of lung diseases caused by inhalation and retention of mineral, metal or dust particles *Repeated exposure to the irritant can cause pul. Fibrosis -Chemical pneumonitis *Results from exposure to toxic chemicals *Clinically pt has pul edema -Hypersensitivity pneumonitis *An individual inhales irritants to which they are allergic too *Clinical manifestations occur w/in 4-6 hrs of exposure and incl. fever, chills, cough, SOB and malaise Clinical Manifestations: -Typically do not appear for 10-15 yrs after exposure but incl. dyspnea, coughing, wheezing and weight loss -Cor pulmonale is a late manifestation. *Cor pulmonale is an enlargement of the right ventricle Check what ya know (Answers at end) 6.)
* Teach the patient about the procedures associated risks and benefits, what to expect during the transfusion, signs and symptoms of a reaction, and when and how to call for assistance. * Check for an appropriate and patent vascular access. * Make sure necessary equipment is at hand for administering the blood product and managing a reaction, such as an additional free I.V. line for normal
It is used to treat fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure, liver disease, or a kidney disorder such as nephritic syndrome. A brand name for bumetanide is Bumex Anastrozole, brand name Arimidex, is a type of anti-estrogen used in treatment of breast cancer but is also used by bodybuilders to combat the estrogenic side effects associated with using anabolic steroids Beta-2 agonist is a drug that opens the bronchial airways and often helps build muscle. Agonist is often referred to as a drug that stimulates natural processes in the body and beta-2 to a cell receptor. They are clinically used to help asthma patients. Yet, the abuse of beta-3 agonists can be used as an enhancer.
Reduces fever and is an anti inflammatory. Side effects include gastrointestinal ulcers, stomach bleeding and tinnitus. Senakot – stimulant laxative to treat constipation.

First aid treatments: find information on recommended treatment for bleeding, wounds, shock, poisoning, snakebites, insect stings, ticks, burns, heat exposure, heat stroke, hypothermia, frostbite, fractures, dislocations, sprains, strains, eye injuries, nose injuries, head and skull injuries, spine injuries, chest injuries, abdominal injuries, myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident, fainting convulsions or seizures, diabetic coma, and insulin shock. * Bleeding: The best treatment for a minor cut or scrape is to wash it thoroughly with water and plain soap. If possible, apply aloe or an antibiotic ointment onto the wound, and then cover with a bandage to keep it clean. * Wounds: Clean the wound with water. Avoid using soap, hydrogen peroxide, or iodine, which can irritate the injury.
After Chloe’s gastric bypass, when she swallows it may cause Chloe stomach pain. This is due to the sequence of waves that contract and relaxes the pharyngeal muscles, down the esophagus and then into her stomach, which is sensitive because of the trauma caused by the gastric bypass. One of the positive outcomes of Chloe’s bypass is a reduction of acid reflux. The duodenum is where the majority of agitation of digestive enzymes normally happens and that gives the sphincter potential to release reflux.
Making Hot and Cold Packs: Endothermic and Exothermic Chemical Reactions Background Hot and cold packs are frequently used by athletes and trainers to treat minor injuries, such as, inflammations, sprains, muscle spasms, head-aches, etc. Hot and cold packs consist of two separate compartments, one containing water and the other containing a salt. When you break the seal between the chambers and shake the pack vigorously, the two compartments combine and the salt dissolves in the water. This generates a chemical reaction. Depending on the type of salt, this reaction can either release or absorb heat energy.
Many are minor, some are just an inconvenience. The most common side-effects are rashes, itching, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea (or occasionally constipation), lethargy, headaches and blurred vision.

Warfarin used to help the blood clot needs to be measured this is done by taking a blood sample which is sent to the pathology laboratory and the doctor will determine the dosage of warfarin to be given depending on the results, Insulin is also measured depending on the blood glucose levels.
