Armor and anesthesia: exposure, feeling, and the soldier's body. (4/12)

For many civilians, the high-tech weapons, armor, and military medicine with which U.S. soldiers are equipped present an image of lethal capacity and physical invulnerability. But, as this article explores, soldiers themselves just as often associate the life-sustaining technology of modern warfare with feelings that range from a pragmatic ambivalence about exposure to harm all the way to profoundly unsettling vulnerability. This article, based on fieldwork among soldiers and military families at the U.S. Army's Ft. Hood, examines sensory and affective dimensions of soldiers' intimate bodily relationships with the technologies that alternately or even simultaneously keep them alive and expose them to harm. I argue that modern military discipline and technology conspire to cultivate soldiers as highly durable, capable, unfeeling, interchangeable bodies, or what might be called, after Susan Buck-Morss (1992), anesthetic subjects. But for soldiers themselves, their training, combat environment, protective gear, and weapons are a rich font of both emotional and bodily feeling that exists in complex tension with the also deeply felt military imperative to carry on in the face of extreme discomfort and danger.  (+info)

2. Pneumonia (Focal) is defined as clinical pneumonia in the absence of wheeze, which is closely aligned with the pneumonia definition used in the Australian Breathe Easy studies..

Tony Keating, CEO and Managing Director of ResApp said, "The results for lower respiratory tract disease, asthma/reactive airways disease (for children over 2 years of age) and primary upper respiratory tract disease demonstrate that our algorithms effectively aid clinicians in making important clinical diagnostic decisions. Asthma, in particular, is the most common chronic lower respiratory tract disease in childhood throughout the world. Our diagnoses are especially useful in settings such as telehealth, where a stethoscope and additional diagnostic tests such as a chest x-ray or blood tests are not available. We plan to pursue FDA submissions for these three diseases in parallel to ...

That definition understates the complexity of possible chromosomal variations and conflates a cultural construction - "gender" - with chromosomal sex determination in ways that dont jibe with modern understanding. "Gender" is not necessarily "established by the individuals chromosomes." According to the World Health Organization, "Gender, typically described in terms of masculinity and femininity, is a social construction that varies across different cultures and over time. There are a number of cultures, for example, in which greater gender diversity exists and sex and gender are not always neatly divided along binary lines such as male and female or homosexual and heterosexual." One may or may not agree with that assessment of gender vs. sex, culture vs. science, but the WHO analysis points to the fact that these questions are not nearly so cut and dried as the binary framework suggested in Rep. Riddles bill. At a minimum, it would set the stage for years of litigation as every ...

The various norms and values of aging that have been created by humans in the course of history have been largely ignored by gerontologists, who are thought to be more interested in the objective laws that govern science than in the subjective experiences that contribute to the aging process. This thought-provoking study belongs to the genre known as humanistic gerontology and it explores the attitudes toward aging as expressed by society. Outlining the cultural construction of old age and the social and psychological ramifications that are often imposed on the aged by external influences, it focuses on the status and treatment of old age and presents a portrait of aging in a cultural and historical perspective illuminated by diverse national literatures. Unlike any other book on the subject, this volume is an attempt to add to the body of knowledge that helps illustrate, explain, and bridge the dichotomy that still exists between the scientist and the humanist in the field of aging. The various ...
Whats challenging and fascinating, however, is exploring the dissonance between my intellectual distrust of cultural constructions of gender and my undeniable attachment to certain preconceived notions of raising a girl and having a son. As research for the show (and for parenting in general) Ive been reading Chasing Rainbows: Exploring Gender Fluid Parenting Practices edited by Fiona Joy Green and May Friedman. Its a collection of essays both personal and academic with a variety of perspectives on queer feminist parenting and how to challenge gender norms and foster gender-creativity in children. Its brilliant, and while its a bit late for me, as a cis woman hopelessly attached to her Bettie Page hair, with an extensive childhood CV of princess costumes, cheerleading camps, and ballet lessons, I hope to give my little foetus more encouragement to be playful and fluid in their performance of gender..

Introduction. Gender as a social and cultural construction has an impact on physiotherapist and patient beliefs, understanding, and behaviour and could affect physiotherapy encounters. Gender studies in early rehabilitation are scarce. The aim of this thesis was to study gender during different parts of the rehabilitation process for primary health care patients with neck and back pain.. Method. The analyses are based on data from three different samples. One sample is composed of physiotherapists and two samples consist of patients consulting primary health care providers because of neck and back pain. All data were gathered from primary health care provided in Västerbotten County.. Baseline data on 73 physiotherapists and 586 of their patients with neck and back pain were collected by questionnaire during three consecutive days in 2006. Patient data included affected pain site and treatment procedures used by the physiotherapist (Study I). Differences in treatment procedures used by female ...
for all life that is not merely value based. This is intrinsically related to our conceptual habits of attempting to significantly isolate experiences within objective, value-based psychological, epistemological, historical and cultural constructions. Value must be judged in a hierarchy of things and according to Nagarjuna, things do not exist (or are empty) because they are not dissociative of our experience. A thing is of conventional reality - only existing in our fabricated delusion, isolated in language and in thought - as no thing truly exists independent of a conditional flux. The idea of the emptiness of things, and a dismissal of anthropomorphic value classification, can be severely misinterpreted, positing, for instance, that humans are part of the greater whole of nature and thus their actions are natural. In coalescence with the emptiness of reality, this may also perpetuate an exploitative ethos that disrupts and destroys the global climate, ecosystems, and ...
Approaching disability as a cultural construction rather than a medical pathology, this book studies the impact of disability and concepts of disability on composers, performers, and listeners with disabilities, as well as on discourse about music and works of music themselves. For composers with disabilities--like Beethoven, Delius, and Schumann--awareness of the disability sharply inflects critical reception.
This course addresses the anthropological study of emotion and self. It covers the different theoretical approaches to emotion, self and subjectivity. The broad questions addressed revolve around the cultural construction of emotion and self, and the entanglement of psychodynamic processes and power in the formation of the subject. The topics covered include anger and fear, grief and compassion, personhood, technologies of self and subjectification, identification and melancholia.. ...

The burden of childhood respiratory diseases is an important public health problem. Asthma is the most common childhood chronic disease and numerous studies have documented its rise in worldwide prevalence over the past several decades. Moreover, normal pulmonary function development during childhood is important for reaching maximum attainable adult lung function. While the etiology of childhood asthma and development of normal pulmonary function development are complex, a growing body of evidence shows that a variety of environmental exposures are important determinants of childhood airway diseases and normal development. A greater understanding of the biological mechanisms influencing childhood asthma and the natural course of pulmonary function development is critical to minimizing the adverse effects of environmental exposures. We investigated pathophysiologic mechanisms using advances in non-invasive technologies including exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) and high resolution computed tomography ...

Martin Kittel has made important comments in his rapid response to the publication of new NICE guidelines on hypertension in adults (Nov 2). He points out that the new guidelines omit any comment on the time of day of administration of medication for hypertension, despite the publication from the Hygia trial this year by Hermida and colleagues (1) which provides strong evidence from a well conducted trial, with a mean follow up period of 6.4 years, that evening administration results in better outcomes. In 2017 a meta-analysis by Wang and colleagues (2) had reviewed 25229 studies of hypertension management, concluding that evening dosing contrasted with morning, was more effective and did restore dipping and decrease urinary albumin in those few studies that made that comparison. The new guidelines support the use of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (AMBP) and favour this over domiciliary self-measurement, but without comment on the merits of considering "dipping" of nocturnal blood ...

Definition of muck in the Financial Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is muck? Meaning of muck as a finance term. What does muck mean in finance?
Looking for muck? Find out information about muck. Rock or earth removed during excavation. Dark, finely divided, well-decomposed, organic matter intermixed with a high percentage of mineral matter, usually... Explanation of muck
Description: C-FLO is a special formulation of beneficial microorganisms that feed on organic sediment (muck) at the bottom of ponds and lakes. These organisms are found in the woods feeding on dead leaves, bark, weeds and other dead matter. When you walk through the woods, you step on as many as 300,000,000 of these tiny organisms with every step. C-FLO is comprised of healthful organisms that are natural food for aquatic insects. C-FLO multiplies as it feeds on organic sediment, and insects grow and multiply as they feed on C-FLO. Fish then feed on the insects and grow rapidly.. What C-FLO does: C-FLO feeds on bottom organic muck, ooze, and peat, digesting and converting it to carbon dioxide and water. As C-FLO feeds on bottom muck, the lake will deepen, creating a better environment for fish, and less opportunity for weeds to grow. Cattails and lilies will gradually disappear. This process replaces dredging the organic material at a tiny fraction of the cost. C-FLO is harmless to fish, ...
Just in time for the holidays (Halloween totally counts as a holiday), the Teaching Company (a/k/a "The Great Courses) is releasing a new course I recorded - Mysteries of Modern Physics: Time. For those of you who arent familiar with the format (and my previous course, Dark Matter and Dark Energy), this is a set of 24 lectures, each half an hour each, modeled on an undergraduate college course for non-scientists. Note that both are hugely discounted at the moment, by 70% off the ordinary price, which isnt always the case. Unlike the previous course, this new one is available in an audio-only format as well as on video. But in the last few years they have upgraded their graphics and animation considerably, so the video version might be worth a look. Heres the teaser:. ...

Medical anthropology is playing an increasingly important role in public health. This course builds on basic concepts introduced in ANTH 2504 with an emphasis on the contributions of medical anthropological theories and concepts towards an understanding of complex health-related behavior. This course examines why public health policies and interventions are more likely to be effective if the beliefs and behavior of people are understood and taken into account. Some examples of particular health problems are examined, such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, malaria and other communicable and non-communicable diseases to show how an anthropological approach can contribute to both a better understanding of health and illness and to more culturally appropriate public health measures. ...

In Chapter 4, "Treating the Family", you focus on how the West Clinic team assumptions of normative family roles relate to explanatory models behind treatment decisions. Can you expand on how other normative assumptions contributed to treatment decisions?. M.B.: I think that a lot of the decisions about restoring functioning were motivated by ideas about what defines success in adolescence, and so a lot of the decisions were oriented toward, getting kids into college. There was a lot of talk about getting [them] into college and getting them back into their high-achieving tracks. Of course, sometimes I think the clinicians helped families and patients get off that track, and that was also part of what they did. But I think sometimes they were implicitly motivated by middle class values about education and achievement and success. In Chapter 5, you begin with a quote by George Beard about American nervousness "Without civilization there can be no nervousness…". In what ways does this quote ...

Deadline for Abstracts: July 15th, 2012. People across the globe are navigating stratified and pluralistic health care landscapes, shaped by neoliberal policies and unequal access to medical care. The summer school explores the idea that different population groups such as ethnic minorities, the elderly, people with chronic diseases, the unemployed, and unauthorized migrants may face - to some extent - similar struggles: the experiences of living with insecurity and uncertainty, of being excluded or discriminated against in the health care system, and having difficulties accessing the treatments they consider most effective, including biomedical care and other forms of medicine and healing.. We invite participants to address national and local models of health care provision across the globe and to identify common developments and issues. Presentations should pay close attention to the growing stratification of health care systems and the many facets of inequality in different regions and ...
Daniel Moerman presents an innovative and enlightening discussion of human reaction to the meaning of medical treatment. Traditionally, the effectiveness of medical treatments is attributed to specific elements, such as drugs or surgical procedures, but many things happen in medicine which simply cannot be accounted for in this way. The same drug can work differently when presented in different colours; drugs with widely advertised names can work better than the same drug without the name; inert drugs (placebos, dummies) often have dramatic effects on people (the placebo effect); and effects can vary hugely among different European countries where the same medical condition is understood differently, or has different meanings. This is true for surgery as well as for internal medicine. This lively 2002 book reviews and analyses these matters in lucid, straightforward prose, guiding the reader through a very complex body of literature, leaving nothing unexplained but avoiding any ...

Dr. Bludaus research program centers on the professional identity of healthcare workers, primarily nurses. The project that served as the basis of her dissertation was an examination of global healthcare migration through the recruitment and migration of Czech nurses; Saudi Arabia is their primary destination site. She uses a critical and applied approach to medical anthropology in order to examine the Czech and Saudi national healthcare systems and policies in relation to individual motivations for migration. A key element is the position of healthcare labor recruiters as a node in the migration chain. A large part of her research consisted of an organizational analysis of a Czech recruitment firm in which she was embedded for almost a year. Most recently, Dr. Bludau, along with colleagues in the Department of Nursing, have completed an interdisciplinary project analyzing nursing education programs to determine crucial elements of socialization and professional identity development. This pilot ...

Autism or autism spectrum conditions describe several presentations characterised by core issues with social affect and stereotyped or repetitive actions. Diagnosis is made by observation and analysis of developmental history. These are heterogeneous conditions which can carry various co-morbidities and whilst described as life-long are affected by age and maturation. Autism means different things to different people. To some it means a need for life-long support. To others it is part of the varied tapestry of humanity. To all it means a need to foster a welcoming society with appropriate support and opportunities ...

A peculiar characteristic of the current epidemic across all the three most affected countries was the presentation of culture as a barrier to the effective management of Ebola. This, in the most part, can be attributed to a lack of understanding and empathy with the cultural constructions of the societies concerned. Participating in the death and decent send-off of their loved ones is an important obligation of the surviving family members and a right of the departed. It is quite possible to involve the families of victims in some way by incorporating them into the safe burial protocols. Similarly, there exists already in many cultures within the region, cultural pathways to deal with certain categories of abnormal deaths. For example death by lightning, death by drowning and suicide already fall into special categories in some cultures. Such deaths are therefore exempted from normal rituals. The challenge then will be to have Ebola classified in a similar category within this cultural idiom. ...
Research presented at the Anesthesiology 2012 annual meeting revealed cigarette smoke adversely affects the developing human airway, especially in prematurity. Fetuses and premature babies exposed to cigarette smoke are at greater risk for developing childhood respiratory diseases, such as asthma.. "Due to their highly immature lungs, premature babies often require high levels of additional oxygen in the neonatal intensive care unit, which can put these babies at higher risk for life-long problems with lung diseases," said study author Elizabeth Vogel, M.D., Department of Anesthesiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.. Additional exposure to second-hand smoke in the home often precipitates further respiratory problems and possible return trip(s) to the ICU.. "By examining human fetal airway cells from gestational ages during which rapid airway and lung growth would normally occur, we hope to understand how the developing airway is particularly susceptible to cigarette smoke with the goal of ...
Only it is not the horrible kind, just the kind that makes you feel bad a lot. Someone at the university, in their infinite wisdom decided that I was a good teacher, so I teach not-so-innocent young minds...heee heee heee...(Actually, I really enjoy teaching). I have my own lab full of BONESSSSSSSS. My health has kept me from being Indiana Jonesess, but now I get to be more like Dr. Brennan. I miss archaeology, but enjoy bio-archaeology/biocultural medical anthropology more, and I am able to only dig when I want to or when a need arises instead of a long stretch. I get to help with forensic type stuff too, which is nice. I am still in grad school and probably will be the rest of my life (or that is how it feels). Despite all of that, I am still not fully sure of what I want to be when I grow up.... We have done the normal things like get new cars and move and adopt a new dog.

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Chapter 17 203 The moral tone implied in breastfeeding knowledge is rooted in power relations that also affect the identity of mothers. We present our arguments with examples of women living in poverty, since this is a population whose breastfeeding experiences are rarely addressed in the literature. Building from critical concepts developed by French thinkers Pierre Bourdieu and Michel Foucault, we examine closely how issues of power, morality, and identity are embedded in public health promotion of breastfeeding, and how that promotion might be changed to better address womens practices and needs. Motherhood and Ritual Medical anthropology demonstrates that the reproductive behaviors of women are heavily controlled through ritual. Reproductive rituals regulate and impose normative behaviors and often restrictive rules on women who are expected to follow them during pregnancy, birth, and the postnatal periods, constituting what ...

As the leading cause of disability around the world (WHO 2012), depression has become a major public health concern. The global mental health movement has organized to increase access to mental health care within primary care and to protect the human rights of those who experience mental illnesses. Within this movement, the World Health Organization (WHO) MIND Project which operated in the early 2000s aimed to increase services and legal protections for people with mental illness, through collaboration with national governments and with the assertion that through such collaboration, global psychiatric knowledge would trickle down to the general population. Foucault (1978) has argued that in contemporary society, governance takes place through biopolitics as the ???making live??? of populations through construction of health problems as simultaneously political and economic ones. Rose (2007) posited that the outcome of living in such a society is the creation of individual-level biological citizenship,
Seton has made a huge commitment to expanding academic medicine by building this new teaching hospital, and the Shivers Cancer Foundation is proud to support such a major project for our region," said Clarke Heidrick, foundation board chairman.

Id like to remind you about an important documentary project helmed by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein (who produced the documentary The Business of Being Born) thats inspired by the book Sweetening the Pill by Holly Grigg-Spall.. This documentary project aims to highlight the potential dangers of hormone birth control. I normally dont like to voice my opinions on this topic since I believe birth control is a personal issue and everyone should feel free to select whats right for her or him when it comes to family planning.. However, I do believe strongly in "informed consent". And I dont believe many health care providers who dispense hormone birth control are giving their patients fully informed consent. Thats because theyre glossing over the potentially dangerous physical complications that can arise from hormone BC and, many times, altogether skipping the potential emotional side effects, such as sudden anger, depression and extreme mood swings (which I personally experienced when I tried ...

Dr Connie Smith, Consultant in Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare, said:. "Contraception is a very personal issue. What is right for one woman may not be right for another. That is why the national NICE guidelines on contraception are built around the importance of choice. "PCTs that are restricting choice are getting worse outcomes. As a result of flouting national guidance, women are paying a big personal cost and the NHS is bearing a huge financial cost. Unintended pregnancy costs the NHS more than £755 million every year. For every £1 spent on contraception the NHS saves £12.50, so restricting access and choice is a complete false economy, harming women and the NHS. Those PCTs with restrictions in place need to have an urgent rethink.". Dr Anne Connolly, a GP with a special interest in sexual health, added:. "As a GP I know how important it is to get contraception right. We must take a personal approach to meeting womens needs and operating a blanket ban on some services or ...
role of serum uric acid on the cardiovascular system with respect to hypertension, stroke, renal failure, heart failure and coronary heart disease are discussed. Being able to identify patients with coronary artery disease early will help lower hospital costs and decrease mortality and morbidity. Stress testing has emerged as the sole non-invasive method for risk stratifying patients. Apart from highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of various stress testing modalities, the chapter reviews which patients should undergo stress testing based on appropriateness criteria; managed separately based on their risk factors and identifying those who may be at increased risk of acute myocardial infarction or death. The final chapter of this section discusses the role of exercise electrocardiography in patients with stable chest pain. A UK National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guideline on the diagnosis of discomfort of suspected cardiac origin published in 2010 proposes that ...

As a millennial (Im 18), when they talk about "getting reconnected with society" all I think is how much you cut yourself off. Blaine and Barbara are the only two people doing this. All their other friends still have their phones and laptops and etc. So you are disconnecting yourself from all these people who use the most current medium to interact, and calling it a connection? The entire world, or even just the world around an individual wont just stop so one person can see what its like. They cut themselves off from everyone, and call it connecting. If youre trying to connect to people, and you cut your power, it is going to be challenging. No shit, right? So if the idea is to connect to people, why would you essentially create an extra barrier?

Forensic anthropology used in the context of human rights cases has come to the forefront in the past two decades as an essential part of peace support operations (PSOs), international and national tribunals and of special commissions of inquiry and other types of investigations following large-scale human rights abuses. This chapter focuses on what forensic anthropology is, how it has developed and how it can contribute to peace support efforts relative to its application in the investigation of human rights abuses, using the Argentine case as an example.

INTRODUCTION. Forensic anthropology is a relatively new scientific discipline, born at the intersection of physical anthropology and forensic medicine. It is usually defined as the application of physical anthropology methodology and techniques within the medico-legal context.1 Although considerable advances have been made within the discipline in recent years, numerous challenges still face its practitioners. The roots of forensic anthropology can be traced to research in the late 19th century, such as Alphonse Bertillones anthropometric system for human identification and the dubious discipline of criminal anthropology.2 Much closer to modern practices are several pioneering studies for identifying human remains carried out by anatomists and anthropologists such as Thomas Dwight and Harris Hawthorne Wilder.2 The rise and development of the discipline was strongly accelerated with the publication of Wolton M.

Scared Straight! is a 1978 documentary directed by Arnold Shapiro. Narrated by Peter Falk, the subject of the documentary is a group of juvenile delinquents and their three-hour session with actual convicts. Filmed at Rahway State Prison, a group of inmates known as the "lifers" berate, scream at, and terrify the young offenders in an attempt to "scare them straight" (hence the films title), so that those teenagers will avoid prison life. The documentary aired on television in the late 1970s, uncensored; it marked the first time that the profane words "fuck" and "shit" were broadcast on many networks. Some broadcasters (an example being CFQC, a CTV Network affiliate in Canada) added locally produced segments in which experts discussed both the content of the documentary, and the rationale behind airing it uncensored. The cast includes a drug dealer and counterfeit document manufacturer from Westchester County, New York (Mikie C), a gang member from Jersey City, New Jersey (Jerome Watts), an ...
