... According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are 26 different pulse types: The Scattered pulse is an irregular pulse that occurs in critical cases where qi is exhausted. The hollow pulse feels floating, large, soft and hollow and is seen in cases where there is a large blood volume loss.

The events leading to nuclear pharmacy specialty recognition are described in this article. After reading this article the nuclear medicine technologist or nuclear pharmacist should be able to: (a) describe the status of nuclear pharmacy before recognition as a specialty practice; (b) describe the events that stimulated pharmacists to organize a professional unit to meet the needs of nuclear pharmacists; and (c) identify the steps by which nuclear pharmacists become board certified in nuclear pharmacy.  (+info)

(2/72) Building a medical history collection.

The importance of a clearly defined policy for building a medical historical collection is stressed in relation to the type of library and to the financial possibilities for building the collection and for the proper housing, preservation, servicing, and bibliographic control of such a collection.  (+info)

(3/72) A further perspective on medical history collecting.

Part of the proper academic function of the medical librarian is to pay attention to the sources of modern medical knowledge. Secondary works on the history of medicine should be acquired and at least one subject field emphasized for collection in depth historically.  (+info)

(4/72) The role of World War II and the European theater of operations in the development of anesthesiology as a physician specialty in the USA.

World War II was a time of growth and development of anesthesia as a physician specialty. Wartime training exposed neophyte physician-anesthetists to role models who showed the potential of anesthesiology and to the richness of practicing anesthesia. Wartime anesthesia required dexterity, imagination, and pluck, and surgeons and other physicians were suitably impressed. Drawing historical conclusions about cause and effect is hazardous. Recognized and unrecognized biases, preconceived notions, and the quality and type of resources available affect writers. With this in mind, consider how the effects of World War II on the growth of physician anesthesia loosely parallel the growth of anesthesia in Great Britain during the 19th century. Anesthesia became a medical profession in Great Britain because of the interest and support of physicians and the complexity of administering chloroform anesthesia. Similarly, World War II physician-anesthetists showed they could provide complex anesthesia care, such as pentothal administration, regional anesthesia, and tracheal intubation, with aplomb and gained the support of surgical colleagues who facilitated their growth within a medical profession. They returned to a medium ready to support their growth and helped to establish the medical profession of anesthesiology in the United States.  (+info)

(5/72) The birth and death of human single-nucleotide polymorphisms: new experimental evidence and implications for human history and medicine.

Extensive, new databases of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) provide a powerful resource for disease gene discovery, and they will be even more useful as more frequency data become available. Interesting observed genomic patterns include SNP deserts (regions of low SNP incidence) and lengthy regions of linkage disequilibrium containing only a few haplotypes. A variety of genetic studies will benefit from SNP resources.  (+info)

(6/72) On medicine and politics.

This paper explores the relationship between medicine and politics, between medical management of the human body and governmental management of the body politic. It argues that the increasing complexity both of society and of governmental administration of society in the modern age has made it impossible completely to separate medicine from politics. It demonstrates that, along with great potential for social benefit, "medico-politics" brought with it great danger; much harm has been done purportedly to heal the body politic. The paper concludes by suggesting a way for physicians to minimize this danger.  (+info)

(7/72) Smallpox--a retrospect.

Smallpox has been known as a disease of man since the earliest times. However, its severity increased greatly during the eighteenth century, stimulating physicians and others to find methods of protection against it. Variolation (the inoculation of smallpox material into the skin) was tried, and for a while found general approval, although its practice was not without danger. In 1796, Edward Jenner began his investigations into the use of cow-pox material (vaccination) as a prophylactic against smallpox, and later showed that vaccination could confer protection. Although vaccination centres were first set up in Canada early in the nineteenth century, the disease on occasion assumed epidemic proportions, such as occurred in Montreal in 1885. Sporadic outbreaks have occurred since then, including the recent case in Toronto. From the public health point of view, maintenance of a high level of immunity to smallpox throughout the general population is necessary if serious epidemics are to be avoided.  (+info)

(8/72) A HISTORICAL MEDICAL COLLECTION, AND SOME OF THE PROBLEMS IT PRESENTS.

The organization of a historical collection in a medical library presents many problems. Among these are space limitations, choice of material to be included, and classification. This paper discusses the organization of the historical collection particularly as it relates to books and journals in the Rudolph Matas Medical Library of Tulane University. The problem of classification is discussed at length. The principal classification systems are reviewed, particularly that of the National Library of Medicine Classification. The expansion of the NLM scheme to suit our purpose is presented. This includes classifying Americana imprints by subject rather than state, changing the termination date of Americana to 1900, grouping the history of specialties with books on the history of medicine, and recognizing the problem involved in reclassifying books on military medicine and surgery. The selection and arrangement of periodicals relating to the history of medicine is also discussed.  (+info)

What is the history behind the medication Codeine?


  • Trying to find out what is the history of the medicine Codeine.
  • Codeine has a long history of use beginning with the discovery of the opium bearing flower Papaver Somniferum otherwise known as the opium poppy. The raw opium paste was extracted from the pod of the flower and taken as tea for both recreational and medicinal uses. It was known for some time that raw opium extract when taken oraly damaged the liver but codeine, which is part of the opium extract, is converted to the brain by the way of the gastrointestinal tract, avoiding the liver entirely. It is prescribed to relieve mild to moderate pain and also to reduce coughing. In addition to that it has other uses. Codeine and other opiates work by absorbing into the body and transforming into endorphins in the brain. The endorphins affect the pain receptors in the brain and so it is used as a pain medication.

  • My mother might have ovarian cancer and being the youngest child i can't help but think it is some how my fault. So i guess i'm asking any one who has a history in medicine if it is possible for a birth to cause a mother to develope ovarian cancer.
  • About the Ovaries The ovaries are small, almond-shaped female reproductive organs. There are two ovaries and they are located deep in the pelvis, one on each side of the uterus. The ovaries produce female hormones and store all of the egg cells, which are released once a month during ovulation. About Ovarian Cancer Unusual growth of ovarian cells can result in a cancerous or non-cancerous ("benign") tumor. Many ovarian tumors are benign; women with benign tumors can be cured by surgically removing part or all of the affected ovary or ovaries.1 Cancerous ovarian tumors, however, may be typically advanced at the time they are diagnosed, which means they have spread to other areas of the abdomen or to distant sites in the body.1 Types of Ovarian Cancer The three main types of ovarian cancers are described by the cells within the ovary where the cancer started.1 Epithelial ovarian cancers The majority of ovarian cancers develop from the cells that cover the outer surface of the ovary, called "epithelial" cells.1 Epithelial ovarian cancers account for 85 to 90 percent of all ovarian cancers. Epithelial ovarian cancers come in several forms, which differ only in thier appearance when viewed under a microscope. The other two major types of ovarian cancer — germ cell tumors and stromal tumors — are much less common than epithelial ovarian cancer. Germ cell tumors Approximately five percent of ovarian cancers begin in the cells that form the eggs, called "germ" cells. Germ cell tumors can occur in women of any age, but they tend to be found most often in women in their early 20s. Stromal tumors Ovarian stromal tumors develop in the tissue that hold the ovary together and the cells that produce the female hormones estrogen and progesterone.1 Unlike epithelial ovarian cancers, 70% of the cases of stromal tumors are diagnosed early. Since germ cell tumors and stromal tumors are rare and treated differently than the epithelial type, the term "ovarian cancer" refers only to epithelial ovarian cancers throughout this website.2 A risk factor is something that can affect a person's chance of getting a disease such as ovarian cancer.2Risk Factors The exact cause of ovarian cancer remains unknown, although several "risk factors" have been linked to the disease. Some risk factors, such as smoking, can be controlled. Others, like a person's age or race, can't be changed. Having one or more risk factors does not mean that a person will get the disease


What alternative medicine has been proven to be the most effective?


  • I understand different types of alternative medicine are used to treat different ailments. But in general what type of alternative medicine is the most effective at treating what it purports to cure? For your answer can you give an example of the type of ailment and what it is exactly that the alternative medicine does to cure it so I have a better understanding?
  • lol @ person quoting msn Well for one, Nutrition is a big part of Naturopathy. Nutrition does not need to be proven - we already know a lot of facts about vitamins, minerals etc. There are also supplements relating to nutrition like pro biotics, enzymes, antioxidants etc etc which are proven. Herbal medicine is also a big part. Many herbal medicines have been proven. You need to look on quality peer reviewed journals - use PubMed and find research articals/clinical trials if you really want to know. St Johns Wort has been proven to be as effective as antidepressant on mild to moderate depression for example. There are alternative therapies like homeopathy, reiki, etc... called "vibrational medicine" which have not been proven and are not evidence based medicine. However Naturopathy is evidence-based medicine and is a Health Science degree.


How will Nuclear Medicine careers in the future look?


  • I was planning to go into Nuclear Medicine but the medical director the school I planned to go to said that Nuclear Medicine might not be the best thing now. Sure pay is great but job held over the years were small. They might put nuclear medicine in the hands of say, medical assistants or sonographers to do it. Would anyone know if Nuclear Medicine would be a good choice for plenty of jobs after i graduate in around 3 year? What do you think about radiology?
  • It looks fascinating. Stick with whatever you want to do. No training is wasted. From an old UK BMJ... http://archive.student.bmj.com/issues/04/01/careers/22.php But your medical director could have a point (the BMJ was from 2004 I think) http://www.medicaljobs.org/careers/Nuclear-Medicine-Technologists.php


What medicine works best for curing a cold?


  • My brother is starting to get a cold and cannot afford to get sick right now. What medicine works best for curing the beginning symptoms of a cold. Don't mention Zicam because that causes a loss of smell.
  • For me as soon as I start to sneeze and I know I am coming down with a cold I take the Homeopathic Medicine Arsenicum Alb 200 and repaet it every 2 hours usually just three doses suffice in nipping the cold in the bud. Best medicine money can buy. Best regards


What medicine is safely to use or any home remedies can help me with pregnancy rashes and stretch marks?


  • What medicine is safely to use or any home remedies can help me with pregnancy rashes and stretch marks ,especially how to cure the itch? I am currently 8 months pregnant. Thanks for your help.
  • Coco butter (Palmers Tummy Butter sold at any drugstore, walmart, target, or maternity store) will ease the itch and fade the stretch marks but nothing gets rid of them. I use the tummy butter and it faded the marks around my bellybutton(for some reason thats the only place I got them) A LOT..


What symptoms of a sinus infection will cold medicine alleviate?


  • We thought my sister had a cold. She took cold medicine today, and it didn't alleviate any of her symptoms, so we believe it began as a sinus infection instead of manifested into one from a cold. Is this possible? Should the cold medicine helped at least some of her sinus pressure, headache and nasal drainage/congestion?
  • The only sinus medicine that will really help congestion is sudafed or pseudoephedrine (generic name). You need to buy this behind the counter at the drugstore as some idiots make methamphetamine out of the active ingredient. If it is actually a sinus infection (lasts more than a few days), she needs to see the doctor for antibiotics or even steroids. Remember, your sinuses are very close to your brain and you do not want an infection there. I had to have surgery on my sinuses as many people do, because they are closed off by bone and infections can build up in these closed spaces. Nasal sprays like Afrin are OK for a few days, but no more. They have a rebound effect that makes your sinuses swell up after you use them, so you can be stuck using them for the rest of your life. Does she have a headache in the front of her face (eyes, cheeks, etc.) that feels like pressure? That can indicate sinus problems. If she's not better in a few days, have her bend over forward and see if the pain gets worse-sinus pressure worsens in this position. If she doesn't get better after a few days anyways, she needs to see a good ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat doctor), not just your family doctor. This can be very prolonged and painful if left untreated, trust me.

  • no because medicine doesnt fix the problem, it covers it up. like putting on a band aid, covers the wound, but the body heals it. the best way to get rid of her cold is to rinse out her nose with a betti neti pot. its a very simple process with NO side effects besides breathing clearly haha. dont use plastic ones though because the chemicals in the plastic eventually break down and cause more problems. go with ceramic made netis. i have a betti pot and it works wonders. feel better!
