In other cases, health conditions are detected during the pregnancy via ultrasound or other screening tests. There are a number of optional screening tests available during pregnancy.

... valence. Would Universal Antenatal Screeing for HIV Infection Be Cost-Effective in a Setting of Very Low Prevalence. 2004 Would Universal Antenatal Screeing for HIV Infection Be Cost-Effective in a Setting of Very Low Prevalence. Published cost-effectiveness analyses of universal antenatal HIV screening conducted for high-income countries have assumed prevalence’s of 0.01%, for the base case, among the antenatal population. We model data for Australia, where prevalence is very low, to examine whether universal antenatal HIV screening is cost-effective in this setting. Methods: A static-decision-model of the incremental cost-effectiveness of universal antenatal-HIV-screening as compared to existing practice was developed. Results: The intervention would be cost-effective if the prevalence of undiagnosed HIV in the currently unscreened Australian antenatal population was ≥ 0.004372% 1 case in 22,872. At this prevalence, incremental costs are exactly offset by incremental benefits. Conclusions: Universal ant...

A randomized trial comparing alternative approaches to prenatal diagnosis counseling in advanced maternal age patients. MedLine Citation:. PMID: 15733266 Owner: NLM Status: MEDLINE. Abstract/OtherAbstract:. Prenatal diagnosis PND is offered routinely as part of pregnancy care to a large number of women at increased risk of fetal anomalies. Despite an extraordinary growth in the use of PND and significant resource allocation, few studies have examined outcomes of PND counseling, and virtually no research has evaluated the relative efficacy of various approaches to genetic counseling. This study was a randomized trial that compared which counseling methods - individual, group, and use of a decision aid - are effective in PND counseling for women of advanced maternal age /=35 years and their partners. Three hundred and fifty-two women and 225 partners completed pre- and post-intervent...

Meanwhile, he left oncology to do a residency in emergency medicine at York Hospital in York, Pennsylvania. According to its website, it was founded “with the goal of changing the paradigm of prenatal diagnostics.” While the current paradigm focuses on Downs syndrome testing, “there are many other genetic conditions and reasons to offer patients prenatal diagnosis,” among them cystic fibrosis and sickle-cell anemia. Dhallan and his colleagues have developed “safe, noninvasive tests to expand upon the current options available to patients.”. In an article for the 'Journal of the American Medical Association', “Methods to Increase the Percentage of Free Fetal DNA Recovered From the Maternal Circulation,” Dhallan and his colleagues maintained that “An alternative to existing methods for prenatal diagnosis is to use fetal cells and fetal DNA that exist in the maternal circulation.”. 3 Dhallan's method of non-invasive prenatal testing was described in a 2007 article in The Lancet Lancet. “Currently,” explained a L...

*  Diagnostic test
The pre-test probability of a disease The demand of the testee in regard to the post-test probability of disease according with the given test result in order to rule in or out the disease and to accept or reject a particular therapeutic action. In other words, the test result does not change the degree of un certainty of presence or absence of the target disease: the test is useless. It is not because the association between a test result and the presence or absence of the disease is weak that the test is necessarily useless since a high pre-test probability and/or a ‘low’ degree of demanded certainty by tester and/or testee can make a test with a weak relation a modest likelihood ratio to the target disease useful allow to decide to the presence or absence of the target disease given a positive test result despite the weak relationship. On the other hand a test result on a test showing a strong association with the absence or presence of the target disease can be useless because of a ‘low’ pre-test probabil...

A pathognomonic sign is a particular sign whose presence means that a particular disease is present beyond any doubt. Practical use Examples See also References External links. A pathognomonic sign or symptom has very high specificity but does not need to have high sensitivity : for example it can sometimes be absent in a certain disease, since the term only implies that, when it is present, the doctor instantly knows the patient's illness. The presence of a pathognomonic finding allows immediate diagnosis, since there are no other conditions in the differential diagnosis. Singular pathognomonic signs are relatively uncommon. Examples of pathognomonic findings include Koplik's spots inside the mouth in measles, the palmar xanthoma ta seen on the hands of people suffering from hyperlipoproteinemia, Negri bodies within brain tissue infected with rabies, or a tetrad of rash, arthralgia, abdominal pain and kidney disease in a child with Henoch-Schönlein purpura.

*  Assay sensitivity
If a trial intended to demonstrate efficacy by showing superiority of a test intervention to control lacks assay sensitivity, it will fail to show that the test intervention is superior and will fail to lead to a conclusion of efficacy. In contrast, if a trial intended to demonstrate efficacy by showing a test intervention is non-inferior to an active control lacks assay sensitivity, the trial may find an ineffective intervention to be non-inferior and could lead to an erroneous conclusion of efficacy. The chosen margin of inferiority in a non-inferiority trial cannot be larger than the largest effect size which the control intervention reliably and reproducibly demonstrates compared to placebo or no treatment in past superiority trials. For instance, if there is reliable and reproducible evidence from previous superiority trials of an effect size of 10% for a control intervention compared to placebo, an appropriately designed non-inferiorty trial designed to rule out that the test intervention may be as much...

*  Likelihood ratios in diagnostic testing
... Calculation Application to medicine Example Estimation of pre- and post-test probability Example. Respectively, they are known as the ' LR+, 'likelihood ratio positive', 'likelihood ratio for positive results' and ' LR–, 'likelihood ratio negative', 'likelihood ratio for negative results'. The positive likelihood ratio is calculated as. or "the probability of a person who has the disease testing positive divided by the probability of a person who does not have the disease testing positive." Here "T+" or "T " denote that the result of the test is positive or negative, respectively. So "true positives" are those that test positive T+ and have the disease D+, and "false positives" are those that test positive T+ but do not have the disease D. 5 : LR- = \frac{1 - \text{sensitivity}}{\text{specificity}}. or "the probability of a person who has the disease testing negative divided by the probability of a person who does not have the disease testing negative.".

*  Monitoring Immunity Through Diagnostics
... print. close. Monitoring Immunity Through Diagnostics. Jeff Zimmerman, DVM and Eileen Thacker, DVM Iowa State University Tue, 2003-04-15 12:00 Diagnostic tests are direct measures of exposure or vaccination, and indirect meastures of immunity. Diagnostic assays or tests are tools used by producers and veterinarians to assess the disease and immune status of pigs. Depending on the specific diagnostic assay, laboratory tests detect antibodies or proteins that are produced in large quantities by the pig in an immune response to an infection or the presence of an infectious agent. Immunity is essentially the pig's resistance to infection. Diagnostic assays do not measure immunity. Rather, they look for evidence of disease exposure in response to vaccination, antibodies or infectious agents. In terms of immunity, the underlying assumption is that prior infection or vaccination has stimulated an immune response that will provide some level of protection from disease symptoms in the future. For these reasons, d...

Prenatal diagnosis: Prenatal diagnosis or prenatal screening (note that prenatal diagnosis and prenatal screening refer to two different types of tests) is testing for diseases or conditions in a fetus or embryo before it is born. The aim is to detect birth defects such as neural tube defects, Down syndrome, chromosome abnormalities, genetic disorders and other conditions, such as spina bifida, cleft palate, Tay Sachs disease, sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, cystic fibrosis, Muscular dystrophy, and fragile X syndrome.Assay sensitivity: Assay sensitivity is a property of a clinical trial defined as the ability of a trial to distinguish an effective treatment from a less effective or ineffective intervention. Without assay sensitivity, a trial is not internally valid and is not capable of comparing the efficacy of two interventions.Prescription cascade: Prescription cascade refers to the process whereby the side effects of drugs are misdiagnosed as symptoms of another problem resulting in further prescriptions and further side effects and unanticipated drug interactions. This may lead to further misdiagnoses and further symptoms.Dense artery sign: In medicine, the dense artery sign or hyperdense artery sign is a radiologic sign seen on computer tomography (CT) scans suggestive of early ischemic stroke. In earlier studies of medical imaging in patients with strokes, it was the earliest sign of ischemic stroke in a significant minority of cases.Brain biopsyRavindra Nanda: Ravindra Nanda (born 19 February 1943) is the professor and Head of Craniofacial Department and Chair of the Division of Orthodontics at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine.Computer-aided diagnosis: In radiology, computer-aided detection (CADe), also called computer-aided diagnosis (CADx), are procedures in medicine that assist doctors in the interpretation of medical images. Imaging techniques in X-ray, MRI, and Ultrasound diagnostics yield a great deal of information, which the radiologist has to analyze and evaluate comprehensively in a short time.Generalizability theory: Generalizability theory, or G Theory, is a statistical framework for conceptualizing, investigating, and designing reliable observations. It is used to determine the reliability (i.Yury VerlinskyTemporal analysis of products: Temporal Analysis of Products (TAP), (TAP-2), (TAP-3) is an experimental technique for studyingHyperintensityQRISK: QRISK2 (the most recent version of QRISK) is a prediction algorithm for cardiovascular disease (CVD) that uses traditional risk factors (age, systolic blood pressure, smoking status and ratio of total serum cholesterol to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol) together with body mass index, ethnicity, measures of deprivation, family history, chronic kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, atrial fibrillation, diabetes mellitus, and antihypertensive treatment.Prenatal nutrition: Nutrition and weight management before and during :pregnancy has a profound effect on the development of infants. This is a rather critical time for healthy fetal development as infants rely heavily on maternal stores and nutrient for optimal growth and health outcome later in life.Thermal cyclerGross examinationBreast biopsyIncidence (epidemiology): Incidence is a measure of the probability of occurrence of a given medical condition in a population within a specified period of time. Although sometimes loosely expressed simply as the number of new cases during some time period, it is better expressed as a proportion or a rate with a denominator.Age adjustment: In epidemiology and demography, age adjustment, also called age standardization, is a technique used to allow populations to be compared when the age profiles of the populations are quite different.Prevalence: Prevalence in epidemiology is the proportion of a population found to have a condition (typically a disease or a risk factor such as smoking or seat-belt use). It is arrived at by comparing the number of people found to have the condition with the total number of people studied, and is usually expressed as a fraction, as a percentage or as the number of cases per 10,000 or 100,000 people.Biomarkers of aging: Biomarkers of aging are biomarkers that better predict functional capacity at a later age than chronological age. Stated another way, biomarkers of aging would give the true "biological age", which may be different from the chronological age.Nested case-control study: A nested case control (NCC) study is a variation of a case-control study in which only a subset of controls from the cohort are compared to the incident cases. In a case-cohort study, all incident cases in the cohort are compared to a random subset of participants who do not develop the disease of interest.Eva Engvall: Eva Engvall, born 1940, is one of the scientists who invented ELISA in 1971.Eva Engvall, The Scientist 1995, 9(18):8Malformative syndrome: A malformative syndrome (or malformation syndrome) is a recognizable pattern of congenital anomalies that are known or thought to be causally related (VIIth International Congress on Human Genetics).List of Parliamentary constituencies in Kent: The ceremonial county of Kent,Abdominal ultrasonographyCancer biomarkers: A cancer biomarker refers to a substance or process that is indicative of the presence of cancer in the body. A biomarker may be a molecule secreted by a tumor or a specific response of the body to the presence of cancer.GeneXpert MTB/RIFFine-needle aspiration: Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB, FNA or NAB), or fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), is a diagnostic procedure used to investigate superficial (just under the skin) lumps or masses. In this technique, a thin, hollow needle is inserted into the mass for sampling of cells that, after being stained, will be examined under a microscope.Breast cancer classification: Breast cancer classification divides breast cancer into categories according to different schemes, each based on different criteria and serving a different purpose. The major categories are the histopathological type, the grade of the tumor, the stage of the tumor, and the expression of proteins and genes.Full-body CT scan: A full-body scan is a scan of the patient's entire body as part of the diagnosis or treatment of illnesses. If computed tomography (CAT) scan technology is used, it is known as a full-body CT scan, though many medical imaging technologies can perform full-body scans.TSOM: Through-Focus Scanning Optical Microscopy (TSOM) is an imaging method that produces nanometer-scale three-dimensional measurement sensitivity using a conventional bright-field optical microscope. TSOM has been introduced and maintained by Ravikiran Attotahttp://www.Bioline Reagents: Bioline Reagents is a primary manufacturer and developerBioline: The PCR Company | Company Profile of a wide range of specialised molecular biology products for the life science industry and research markets. It manufactures reagents including ultra-pure nucleotides, DNA polymerases and mixes, DNA markers, competent cells, products for RNA analysis and other general reagents for molecular biology.ABCD rating: ABCD rating, also called the Jewett staging system or the Whitmore-Jewett staging system, is a staging system for prostate cancer that uses the letters A, B, C, and D.Disease registry: Disease or patient registries are collections of secondary data related to patients with a specific diagnosis, condition, or procedure, and they play an important role in post marketing surveillance of pharmaceuticals. Registries are different from indexes in that they contain more extensive data.Closed-ended question: A closed-ended question is a question format that limits respondents with a list of answer choices from which they must choose to answer the question.Dillman D.Comorbidity: In medicine, comorbidity is the presence of one or more additional disorders (or diseases) co-occurring with a primary disease or disorder; or the effect of such additional disorders or diseases. The additional disorder may also be a behavioral or mental disorder.Referral (medicine): In medicine, referral is the transfer of care for a patient from one clinician to another.García Olmos L, Gervas Camacho J, Otero A, Pérez Fernández M.Cancer screeningClonal Selection Algorithm: In artificial immune systems, Clonal selection algorithms are a class of algorithms inspired by the clonal selection theory of acquired immunity that explains how B and T lymphocytes improve their response to antigens over time called affinity maturation. These algorithms focus on the Darwinian attributes of the theory where selection is inspired by the affinity of antigen-antibody interactions, reproduction is inspired by cell division, and variation is inspired by somatic hypermutation.Global Risks Report: The Global Risks Report is an annual study published by the World Economic Forum ahead of the Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Based on the work of the Global Risk Network, the report describes changes occurring in the global risks landscape from year to year and identifies the global risks that could play a critical role in the upcoming year.Tumor progression: Tumor progression is the third and last phase in tumor development. This phase is characterised by increased growth speed and invasiveness of the tumor cells.Endobronchial valve: An endobronchial valve is an implantable medical device—a small, one-way valve, which is implanted in an airway in the pulmonary system to treat one of several lung conditions. The one-way endobronchial valve is typically implanted such that when a patient exhales, air is able to flow through the valve and out of the lung compartment that is fed by that airway, but when the patient inhales, the valve closes and blocks air from entering that lung compartment.Cancer survival rates: Cancer survival rates vary by the type of cancer, stage at diagnosis, treatment given and many other factors, including country. In general survival rates are improving, although more so for some cancers than others.RDCRN Contact Registry: The Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network (RDCRN) Contact Registry is an international patient contact registry sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. This registry collects basic data (i.Stichosome: Stichosome (from Greek stichos (στίχος) = row; soma (σῶµα) = body) is a multicellular organ that is very prominent in some stages of nematodes and consists of a longitudinal series of glandular unicellular cells (stichocytes) arranged in a row along the oesophagus that form the posterior esophageal glands. It opens into the esophageal lumen and apparently functions as a secretory gland and storage organ.Non-communicable disease: Non-communicable disease (NCD) is a medical condition or disease that is non-infectious or non-transmissible. NCDs can refer to chronic diseases which last for long periods of time and progress slowly.Death of Ludwig van Beethoven: The death of Ludwig van Beethoven on 26 March 1827 followed a prolonged illness. It was witnessed by his sister-in-law and by his close friend Anselm Hüttenbrenner, who provided a vivid description of the event.Targeted therapy of lung cancer: Targeted therapy of lung cancer refers to using agents specifically designed to selectively target molecular pathways responsible for, or that substantially drive, the malignant phenotype of lung cancer cells, and as a consequence of this (relative) selectivity, cause fewer toxic effects on normal cells.Immunoassay: An immunoassay is a biochemical test that measures the presence or concentration of a macromolecule in a solution through the use of an antibody or immunoglobulin. The macromolecule detected by the immunoassay is often referred to as an "analyte" and is in many cases a protein.Old German Shepherd Dog: Old German Shepherd Dog () is a controversial predicate for the long-hair variation of the German Shepherd Dog (), which is not a separate breed recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale. Nonetheless, there are efforts to establish this variety as a separate breed.International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems: The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, usually called by the short-form name International Classification of Diseases (ICD), is the international "standard diagnostic tool for epidemiology, health management and clinical purposes". The ICD is maintained by the World Health Organization (WHO), the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations System.Tuberculosis radiology: Radiology is used in the diagnosis of tuberculosis.Replica plating: 350px|right|thumb|[[Negative selection (artificial selection)|Negative selection through replica plating to screen for ampicillin sensitive colonies]]Reaction Agostini: Reaction Agostini is the name of a simplified examination for the presence of glucose in human urine.Median mandibular cyst: A median mandibular cyst is a type of cyst that occurs in the midline of the mandible, thought to be created by proliferation and cystic degeneration of resting epithelial tissue that is left trapped within the substance of the bone during embryologic fusion of the two halves of the mandible, along the plane of fusion later termed the symphysis menti. A ture median mandibular cyst would therefore be classified as a non-odontogenic, fissural cyst.Skyland Trail: Skyland Trail is a private, not-for profit organization in Atlanta, Georgia offering treatment to adults with mental illness. Skyland Trail specializes in treating adults with Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Depression, and Dual Diagnosis.National Clinical Guideline Centre

(1/392) The validation of interviews for estimating morbidity.

Health interview surveys have been widely used to measure morbidity in developing countries, particularly for infectious diseases. Structured questionnaires using algorithms which derive sign/symptom-based diagnoses seem to be the most reliable but there have been few studies to validate them. The purpose of validation is to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of brief algorithms (combinations of signs/symptoms) which can then be used for the rapid assessment of community health problems. Validation requires a comparison with an external standard such as physician or serological diagnoses. There are several potential pitfalls in assessing validity, such as selection bias, differences in populations and the pattern of diseases in study populations compared to the community. Validation studies conducted in the community may overcome bias caused by case selection. Health centre derived estimates can be adjusted and applied to the community with caution. Further study is needed to validate algorithms for important diseases in different cultural settings. Community-based studies need to be conducted, and the utility of derived algorithms for tracking disease frequency explored further.  (+info)

(2/392) Restricted natural language processing for case simulation tools.

For Interactive Patient II, a multimedia case simulation designed to improve history-taking skills, we created a new natural language interface called GRASP (General Recognition and Analysis of Sentences and Phrases) that allows students to interact with the program at a higher level of realism. Requirements included the ability to handle ambiguous word senses and to match user questions/queries to unique Canonical Phrases, which are used to identify case findings in our knowledge database. In a simulation of fifty user queries, some of which contained ambiguous words, this tool was 96% accurate in identifying concepts.  (+info)

(3/392) Medically unexplained symptoms: how often and why are they missed?

We assessed risk factors affecting the provisional diagnosis of medically unexplained symptoms made by physicians in new patients, in 526 clinical encounters. Comparisons were made between the doctor's initial assessments regarding the nature of symptoms, and the final diagnosis. Physicians were more likely to err on the side of diagnosing the symptoms as medically explained rather than unexplained. When physicians perceived the interaction with the patient to be positive, they were more likely to make a provisional diagnosis that the symptoms were explained. Conversely, a negative perception of the interaction was associated with an increased likelihood of viewing symptoms as medically unexplained. Physicians should be aware of the effect of their own perceptions on their diagnostic behaviour.  (+info)

(4/392) The work by the developing primary care team in China: a survey in two cities.

BACKGROUND: China is in the process of converting its existing primary care resources into general practice. The infrastructure is different from that of many other countries. OBJECTIVES: We surveyed patients' reasons for encounter (RFE) and the health providers' diagnoses in the general practice clinics of two large northern cities in order to assess the nature of the work of these practices. METHOD: Practices whose staff had a short course of training in the theory and practice of the International Classification of Primary Care (ICPC) were recruited to document the RFE and diagnoses of patient encounters in two separate winter weeks. RESULTS: The practices dealt mainly with chronic illness in older patients. Hypertension-related problems were the most frequent diagnoses, followed by upper respiratory tract infection. Patients also consulted very frequently for dizziness. Overall, there was good agreement between RFE and diagnosis in some organ systems. CONCLUSION: In their present form, the Chinese practices surveyed were delivering the full range of general practice care to a self-selected age group of patients. The ICPC was very useful for monitoring the work of general practice from the perspective of both the patients and the providers.  (+info)

(5/392) CPR or DNR? End-of-life decision making on a family practice teaching ward.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the proportion of patients on a family practice ward who had "code status" orders and end-of-life discussions documented on their charts in the first week of admission. To examine the correlation between a tool predicting the likelihood of benefit from cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and actual end-of-life decisions made by family physicians and their patients. DESIGN: Cross-sectional descriptive study using a retrospective chart review. SETTING: A 14-bed teaching ward where family physicians admit and manage their own patients in an urban tertiary care teaching hospital. PARTICIPANTS: Patients admitted to the ward for 7 or more days between December 1, 1995, and August 31, 1996. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Frequency of documented "do not resuscitate" (DNR) or "full code" orders and documented end-of-life discussions. Prognosis-after-resuscitation (PAR) score. RESULTS: In the 103 charts reviewed, code status orders were entered within 7 days for 60 patients (58%); 31 were DNR, and 29 were full code. Discussion of code status was documented in 25% of charts. The PAR score for 40% of patients was higher than 5, indicating they were unlikely to survive to discharge from hospital should they require CPR. There was a significant association between PAR scores done retrospectively and actual code status decisions made by attending family physicians (P < .005). CONCLUSIONS: End-of-life discussions and decisions were not fully documented in patients' charts, even though patients were being cared for in hospital by their family physicians. A PAR score obtained during the first week of admission could assist physicians in discussing end-of-life orders with their patients.  (+info)

(6/392) Telephone medicine for internists.

The role of the telephone in medical practice is important, but often problematic. Mistakes in telephone diagnosis and triage can have severe consequences. An effective office system can reduce liability risks, and in some cases telephone contact can substitute for office visits. Internists feel unprepared to provide telephone care. Therefore, residency education needs to focus on documentation, consultant availability, and performance feedback. Research should focus on improving outcomes, reimbursement issues, and technologic advances. This article describes internists' telephone interactions with ambulatory patients, preparation for telephone medicine, and aspects of office telephone systems and makes comparisons with other primary care fields.  (+info)

(7/392) Studies of symptoms in primary care.

Publications on the frequency of defined symptoms in the practice setting, underlying conditions and prognosis have been rare in the past. Also, studies addressing these questions have suffered from several methodological problems. We therefore developed criteria to help investigators improve the quality of study design, implementation and publication. Studies evaluating symptoms in practice can make an important contribution to a more rational approach to diagnostic decision making especially in primary care.  (+info)

(8/392) Diagnosis and general practice.

This discussion paper presents the case for a rigorous diagnostic research agenda within primary care. In view of unique aspects of primary care medicine and the relatively unselected nature of the populations encountered by general practitioners, it is clear that diagnostic research undertaken in other settings may be inapplicable. Most diagnostic studies adopt designs that seek to compare items, or clusters of items, of clinical information against a gold standard. In order to enhance the feasibility and rigour of such research within primary care, suggestions are made about priorities and specific key methodological issues. It is essential that the information generated by primary care diagnostic research should be reliable, valid, useful, and useable within general practice. The ultimate objective must be the identification of specific items, or small clusters of items, of clinical information of high discriminant ability among the groups of patients encountered in general practice.  (+info)


diagnosis...?


I think I may have social anxiety disorder, But I dont know how to go about seeing if I really do. Do I just get a therapist and ask for some sort of diagnosis or what?
----------

you can see a doctor or a therapist for diagnosis.  If I had the option I would see a psychiatrist because they can diagnose you and they can write you scripts if you need them.


Diagnosis?


DREW JOHNSON enjoys:
smelling his own farts
switching toilets iwth the guy at work and checking out his poo
going to mcdonalds purposely to get smelly farts

is there a diagnosis for someone like this? DJ disorder? this kid has alot of other seriously effed up things but GOD WHATA farggg (hes an 18 yr old virgin...)
----------

Diagnosis: Very immature.


How does an adult get a diagnosis for autism spectrum ?


I was just reading on a site which provides a diagnosis privately, that they charge £300. Is it possible to get a diagnosis through the NHS at all ?
----------

I think the best way to get a diagnosis is to talk to your GP. He or she can refer you to someone who specializes in ASDs. You'll still probably have to pay something for the testing - I don't know much about healthcare in the UK (I live in the US), but my insurance covered a lot of it.


What is the diagnosis and/or treatment for scarring on the lungs due to repeated pneumonia?


My boyfriend had x-rays taken that have shown he has developed some scarring on his lung due to chronic infections of pneumonia. He has seen many doctors but they haven't been able to give him any kind of diagnosis or treatment. It's gotten worse, he coughs all the time, has difficulty breathing, and is constantly spitting up phlegm and mucus from his lungs. Is there anything he can do to treat this problem? And what exactly is this condition called?
----------

Have them do some more tests if they can.  My dad had the same thing and doctors who believed the same, but it turned out he had inhaled some kind of microbe - they are still unsure what it was.  He is on prednisone now and getting better, but it has taken some time.  He did have to have a lung biopsy for the diagnosis, and it was pretty hard on him, but he is 65.


What would the principle diagnosis be in determining the hospital DRG for the scenario described?


Scenario: Patient has a heart attack—they come in and have a stent because at the cath they found CAD (coronary artery disease).  Would CAD or the MI be the principle diagnosis?
----------

Well, the pt is actually presenting with an MI secondary to CAD...  So I would say the diagnosis would be an MI caused by CAD..... 
   Lol- but im just an EMT..  
Neat question!


How long should it take to get a diagnosis after admission to hospital?


My mother has been in the hospital for a week and we were wondering how long it should take to get a diagnosis from biopsy after fluid in lung gave no conclusive diagnosis.
----------

Pathology is not always totally clear. Sometimes they need to send slides or samples away for a different opinion. If this is for a cancer diagnosis they generally want to get the correct type of disease they are dealing with . . basically so they can know how to treat it. A week is not a long time to confirm a diagnosis . . it may even be longer. What is odd is that your Mothers doctor has not explained to you that diagnosis might take ove a week. You should ask.


What could be a nursing diagnosis related to deep vein thrombosis?


Patient had a hip replacement and she is at risk for DVT. How could I write this in terms of a nursing diagnosis?
----------

It would be a risk for diagnosis:

Risk for ineffective tissue perfusion 

as evidenced by: (the factors that make DVT a risk)


How do doctors make a diagnosis of schizophrenia and what is involved?


How can this be distinguished from other mental illnesses with similar symptoms..If someone was experiencing symptoms and were wanting a diagnosis how do they go about getting it.
----------

psych is a very complex and vague matter since we are all candidates for a psychological problem... as a book said, sanity and insanity are just separated by a thin line....

well, talking about psychological problem,
there is what we call NEUROSIS and PSYCHOSIS

neurosis is milder form of psych disorder, examples are phobia, anxiety, panic, etc... during these stages, we are still aware of our environment and we are still aware about the facts of reality and facts about life... (you may consult to a psychologist for this)

while

psychosis is somehow severe where are capability to think logically is somehow impaired and judgement is not that effective... examples are schizo, parkinsonism, etc... (you need a help from PSYCHIATRIST for this)

hope that it helped you...

God bless
