Reducing bruising after venepuncture. (1/100)

Bruising after venepuncture is undesirable. To verify an apparent increase in bruising after introducing a new venepuncture system in a small district general hospital and to improve the venepuncture service two prospective audits of the incidence and severity of bruising after venepuncture were performed in two groups of 100 consecutive inpatients undergoing venepuncture by phlebotomists. In the first audit bruising was detected in 45 patients, of whom 34(76%) had bruises > 100 mm2 in area. After modification of the technique, whereby the phlebotomists ensured that haemostasis had been attained before leaving the patient, bruising was significantly reduced, occurring in 25 patients only 9 of whom (36%) had bruises > 100mm2 in area (both p < 0.01) in the second audit. Monitoring of standards and simple modification of technique resulted in significant reduction in incidence and severity of bruising, improving the quality of the venepuncture service.  (+info)

The kinetics of hematopoiesis in the light horse II. The hematological response to hemorrhagic anemia. (2/100)

Hemorrhagic anemia was experimentally produced in three Standardbred horses by removing approximately 63% of the red cell mass and the accompanying plasma during a three day interval. Red cell parameters were examined daily for 45 days and then weekly until termination of the experiment 250 days after production of the anemia. Leukocytes, platelets and bone marrow aspirates were examined at regular intervals for 25 days after the final phlebotomy. At 24 hours after the last bleeding, 75-selenomethionine was injected intravenously to measure the lifespan of the newly produced erythrocytes. The erythrocyte lifespan was found to be 139 days as compared to the 155 day erythrocyte lifespan for three normal standardbred horses measured previously by similar techniques. The maximum decrease in erythrocyte numbers occurred four, two and two days following the last phlebotomy to 43, 39 and 44% of the original values. The prebleeding erythrocyte levels were regained at approximately 63, 91 and 98 days respectively. During the initial 45 days post phlebotomy the maximum increase in mean cell colume was 2, 4 and 7 mj-3 respectively. During the recovery period there was erythrocyte production of 6.84, 6.99, and 6.12 x 10-9 cells/kg/day. At the same time the absolute production of hemoglobin was 44.6, 50.0, and 51.0/gm/day or on a relative basis 0.096, 0.114 and 0.113 gm/kg/day.  (+info)

A qualitative study on cultural bloodletting among Ethiopian immigrants. (3/100)

BACKGROUND: Bloodletting is practiced in Ethiopia. Physicians in Israel engaging in transcultural encounters with Ethiopian immigrants are generally unaware of these ethno-medical beliefs and practices. OBJECTIVE: To assess the past and present use of bloodletting among Ethiopian immigrants in Israel. METHODS: We interviewed a sample of 50 adult patients of Ethiopian origin about present and past use of bloodletting. A second consecutive sample of 10 adult patients of Ethiopian origin who often asked their doctors to perform blood tests were identified and interviewed. Data analysis was performed by "immersion-crystallization" analysis. RESULTS: More than half of the interviewed patients reported the use of bloodletting. Scars were commonly present on their upper extremities. A qualitative analysis identified the different reasons for the use of bloodletting, the technique used and its appreciated efficacy. We also found an unexpected cultural synergy between traditional bloodletting and western medical blood sampling. CONCLUSIONS: Some Ethiopian immigrants continue to perform traditional bloodletting in their new country of residency, a practice that local physicians may not be aware of. Bloodletting-type scars on the upper extremities may be common in these patients. Patients may ask for blood sampling as a culturally accepted way to perform bloodletting (synergy).  (+info)

Familial and congenital polycythemia in three unrelated families. (4/100)

Three families with polycythemia inherited through apparently different modes are described. Secondary causes of polycythemia were ruled out. Erythropoietin (EPO) levels were normal or low, even after phlebotomy. In vitro erythroid colony growth in standard assay cultures containing EPO was normal; however, in the absence of added EPO, a few progenitors from most of the affected individuals were able to generate recognizable colonies of mature erythroblasts, although these were smaller and proportionately less numerous than seen in polycythemia vera (PV). To search for EPO-receptor changes as a possible pathophysiologic mechanism, we examined, by Southern blot analysis, genomic DNA samples from affected and nonaffected family members, as well as three patients with PV. Two different probes, derived from the human EPO-receptor, were used. We found no evidence for chromosomal rearrangements or gene amplification in hereditary polycythemia or PV patients. Further, no nucleotide sequences were found that were homologous to the Friend spleen focus-forming virus glycoprotein gp55, which has been shown to bind to and activate the murine EPO-receptor. Functional studies examining number and binding affinity of the EPO-receptor on erythroid progenitors from three hereditary polycythemia patients demonstrated no abnormalities. We conclude that the mechanism(s) for the erythrocytosis in familial and congenital polycythemia and in PV may not involve the EPO-receptor and, therefore, may result from alterations of postreceptor responses.  (+info)

ACQUIRED PORPHYRIA CUTANEA TARDA: REPORT OF A CASE SUCCESSFULLY TREATED BY PHLEBOTOMY. (5/100)

CURRENTLY, THE PORPHYRIAS ARE CLASSIFIED IN FOUR MAIN GROUPS: congenital porphyria, acute intermittent porphyria, porphyria cutanea tarda hereditaria, and porphyria cutanea tarda symptomatica. The acquired form of porphyria (porphyria cutanea tarda symptomatica) occurs in older males and is nearly always associated with chronic alcoholism and hepatic cirrhosis. The main clinical changes are dermatological, with excessive skin fragility and photosensitivity resulting in erosions and bullae. Biochemically, high levels of uroporphyrin are found in the urine and stools. Treatment to date has been symptomatic and usually unsuccessful.A case of porphyria cutanea tarda symptomatica is presented showing dramatic improvement of both the skin lesions and porphyrin levels in urine and blood following repeated phlebotomy.Possible mechanisms of action of phlebotomy on porphyria cutanea tarda symptomatica are discussed.  (+info)

Hereditary haemochromatosis. (6/100)

Hereditary haemochromatosis is a very common genetic defect in the Caucasian population, with an autosomal recessive inheritance. It is characterized by inappropriately increased iron absorption from the duodenum and upper intestine, with consequent deposition in various parenchymal organs, notably the liver, pancreas, joints, heart, pituitary gland and skin, with resultant end-organ damage. Clinical features may be non-specific and include lethargy and malaise, or reflect target organ damage and present with abnormal liver tests, cirrhosis, diabetes mellitus, arthropathy, cardiomyopathy, skin pigmentation and gonadal failure. Early recognition and treatment (phlebotomy) is essential to prevent irreversible complications such as cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The history of this condition dates as far back as 1865, but in the last decade great advances have been made. We discuss the genetics, pathophysiology, clinical features, diagnosis and management of a condition that could easily present to a generalist, and is an important diagnosis not to miss.  (+info)

Performance of the Reflotron in Massachusetts' Model System for Blood Cholesterol Screening Program. (7/100)

The precision, accuracy, and durability of the Reflotron were evaluated by the Massachusetts Model Systems for Blood Cholesterol Screening Program. Screenings were conducted in diverse community settings over 16 months. Fingerstick samples from 10,428 individuals were tested. None of the four analyzers met the 1992 standards for precision, although two met the 1992 standards for accuracy. More than 40% of Reflotron values differed from the reference laboratory values by upwards of 5%. More than 16% of individuals were misclassified in terms of their risk category. All four instruments malfunctioned during the project.  (+info)

Changes in the rate of formation and resistance to reabsorption of cerebrospinal fluid during deliberate hypotension induced with adenosine or hemorrhage. (8/100)

Adenosine is recommended for induction of deliberate hypotension. Although its effects on brain vasculature and metabolism and intracranial pressure have been reported, its effects on cerebrospinal fluid dynamics have not. In this study the rate of cerebrospinal fluid formation (Vf), resistance to reabsorption of cerebrospinal fluid (Ra), and electroencephalogram (EEG) activity were determined in rabbits before and during decrease of cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) with intravenous (iv) adenosine or hemorrhage. In the adenosine group (n = 6), Vf and Ra were determined at control CPP, at CPP of 50, 35, and 28 mmHg achieved with iv adenosine, and at CPP greater than 60 mmHg achieved with iv adenosine combined with iv phenylephrine. In the hemorrhage group (n = 6), Vf and Ra were determined at the first four experimental conditions only. Control values for Vf (9 +/- 3 and 9 +/- 4 microliter.min-1, mean +/- SD) and Ra (428 +/- 567 and 412 +/- 144 cmH2O.ml-1.min) did not differ between groups. In the adenosine group, Vf did not change significantly when CPP was decreased. However, in the hemorrhage group, Vf decreased significantly at CPP of 50 and 35 mmHg and became unmeasurable at CPP of 28 mmHg. Ra did not change significantly in either group. An increase of low-frequency (0.5-3.0 Hz) EEG activity and/or decrease of higher-frequency (3.5-30 Hz) EEG activity occurred at CPP of 28 mmHg in the adenosine group and at CPP of 35 mmHg in the hemorrhage group.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)  (+info)

There were obvious flaws and many physicians questioned the procedure such as Pierre Charles Alexandre Louis to demonstrate that it was entirely ineffective in the treatment of pneumonia and various fevers in the 1830s. Nevertheless, in 1840, a lecturer at the Royal College of Physicians would still state that when an appropriate dosage of bloodletting was introduced was effective. Louiss findings were put up against Broussais, who could recommend leeches fifty at a time. It got to the point where by the 1870s bloodletting was so popular among patients that, although medical use of the practice was declining, many patients had to be convinced not to be bled when they fell ill. This placebo affect became dangerous but by the late 1800s enthusiasm for leech therapy had worn off. Developments in other procedures and the discovery of antibiotics in the 1920s had made leeches obsolete. Leeches are still used today in select situations.

An interesting historical side note to this treatment was the condition of the Prince Regent and his father, King George III. The king is well known for the periods of insanity from which he suffered, which eventually became permanent and required that the Prince of Wales become Regent.

The major symptoms of hereditary porphyrias are abdominal pain and psychiatric symptoms. The treatment of porphyria, still used today, is to remove blood from patients until they are slightly anemic and thereby decrease the number of porphyrins in their blood.

Dr. Richard Frank-. The day was December 12, 1799. A freezing rain whipped the Virginia countryside including Mount Vernon, where President George Washington lived and maintained his plantation. He inspected his lands for many hours that day, riding horseback and braving the harsh elements just as he had done throughout his life. Although he awoke the next morning with a hoarse, sore throat, it did not deter him from going out again, this time in heavy snow. By 3 am on Saturday the 14th, however, he awoke seriously ill and summoned his aides and doctors.. It was clear that the General had an upper respiratory infection, what is thought today to have been epiglottitis (inflammation and swelling of the epiglottis) or streptococcal pharyngitis ("strep-throat"). In those early days of medicine, however, there was no definitive way to diagnose a bacterial infection and no antibiotics to treat it. Many doctors, in fact, believed that bloodletting or the removal of a portion of an ill persons blood ...

Phlebotomy, known also as bloodletting or venesection, is a major therapeutic procedure that has been performed by physicians in various civilisations since antiquity up to the present1,2. In the past it was practised using cupping, lancets or by the application of leeches2. This procedure often weakened the patient and resulted in his or her death. A famous example is that of President George Washington who died in 1799 following the removal of approximately 1.7 litres of blood during a bloodletting procedure for acute epiglottitis3. Originally, several thousand years ago, phlebotomy was used for the treatment of various disorders, but in addition to its therapeutic benefits, phlebotomy also had a preventive role. In present day medicine, phlebotomy can be performed in physicians offices, at a blood bank or in hospital under the supervision of a doctor after obtaining a medical prescription stating the indication and number of phlebotomy sessions required. Currently, therapeutic phlebotomy is ...
Surgery a last option advised by a medical professional but likewise it was just easily accessible to the wealthy. Surgical procedure was understood to be effective in situations of fistula, hemorrhoids, gangrene and also cataracts. Bloodletting was among one of the most typical forms of surgery and was suggested for fever, swelling, as well as a range of disease problem and also actually for hemorrhages also. There were 3 major techniques of bloodletting throughout the midlifes: leeching, venesection and also cupping. Amongst these leeching is still utilized, though rare as a clinical treatment by some doctors. Leeching helps to minimize tissue blockage where arterial input is preserved however venous return is obstructed or reduced leeches act as an additional vein to relieve an unsafe build-up of blood. Consequently leech therapy is discovering its way into countless cosmetic surgeries such as number and also limb reattachment, skin graft procedure, scalp avulsions, and bust surgeries as well ...
During the 1800s, surgeons used leeches for bloodletting, which served as a treatment for a number of ailments including fevers and inflammatory diseases. A French surgeon by the name of Baron Charles Louis Heurteloup invented the artificial leech in 1840. This instrument allowed for more precise bloodletting and was often used to treat areas around the eyes or temples. Artificial leeches used a collecting chamber, which would produce a vacuum that sucked up the blood. The artificial leech pictured here is a spring-loaded, 3.75-inch-long version. It pierced veins before drawing out the blood in measured proportions with a pump.. ...

For online commentators theres no target quite like conventional wisdom to drive up readership. But often the urge to flout said conventional wisdom yields only pure crap, proving why the targeted wisdom was so conventional to begin with. If youd like to read the Platonic Ideal of this observation, then by all means scurry on over to The Politico and treat yourself to "Stalled nomination could be good for Dems." In general its a seriously playful tugging at the tails of conventionality; specifically it is 806 words of absolute bullshit.. Written by Peter Fenn -- Democratic consultant, ubiquitous cable-network pundit, especially on the fallen "Tucker" of MSNBC, and seemingly all-round and genuinely nice fellow -- "Stalled nomination" stands reality on its head and attempts a lipstick application on this, the most swinish of situations: the endless, internecine war among progressive forces.. Peter wishes to deflate Republican elation, which conventional wisdom says is well merited: "My ...
The first and third stories "Getting into Medical School, Part I" and "Part II," are about study partners, Fitzgerald and Ming, who have trouble admitting their love for each other until she is accepted to medical school and he is not. Ming teaches Fitzgerald how to prepare successfully by passing along learning tips her physician-cousin provided her in exchange for sex. In the second story, Ming meets fellow students Sri and Chen and drifts away from Fitzgerald. In the third, he wrestles with feelings of rejection and misery as he realizes she has opted for a relationship with the more culturally "appropriate" Chen; however, her study tips pay off in more than one way when he meets Mings unsavory cousin at his medical school interview ...

Expressing her desire to visit with Himmel and Holle softens his face but soon her belligerent tone and sharpened nails digging into his arm sets his jaw. If she is smart, she will stop speaking of Livia, in that tone, to him. Large blue-green optics stare blankly at previously mossy green irides which are now golden ones. His Madchen might think it is her concern, being his Liebstes best friend, but this matter with the Czech girl has nothing to do with Adara. Livia had made a mistake. One on grand scale. Not only did she fail the task given, she became involved with the mark. It was a direct blow to his heart. Shaking the thoughts from his mind, he instead thinks on how protective of Livia Adara truly is, the scent of pine on her flesh teasing his olfactory nerves and Adaras love of running through the taiga ...

In addition to people over-emphasizing outdated risk profiles, they also then tend to dismiss or minimize current risks. For example, a person might oppose homebirth due to fears about bleeding out like "in the olden days" but the person wont exhibit fear towards the idea of bleeding out on the surgery table. Fear of the conditions largely uncontrolled or unpredictable, conditions of "fate" such as prolapsed cord, placental abruption and uterine rupture are strong and lead people to avoid homebirths. But then complications that could be avoided or reduced such as those caused by exposure to pitocin, epidural or other obstetrical interventions are almost accepted as normal, not even mentioned ...

Theres No Common Cultural Legacy For The Alt-Right. Still, is there something to it? Is there a common heritage that will cover El Greco and Hume and Dostoyevsky? Is there one that can include the Jacobites and the Jacobins? There is, but it is not racial, and white supremacists reject it because it rejects them. The unifying heritage of Europe is religious and philosophical. It is Jerusalem and Athens, in one famous formulation. Christian religion and Greek philosophy, filtered through Roman law and culture, are the foundation of European culture. The tensions, agreements, developments and settlements between these have shaped the Western world, and these roots of Western civilization are not congenial to white supremacy.. Christianity is universal in its message and Jewish in its origins. For centuries after its founding, Christianitys center was the Mediterranean world, including Asia Minor and North Africa. Christianity has never been defined by race, and locally-grown racist heresies are ...

Wearing the pants. (photo credit: Gene Page/AMC). In its first season, "The Walking Dead" was like a gore-streaked helium balloon that began firmly tethered to its source material and started to float off into the ether about halfway through. Now, it appears, someone is yanking its string. After that ill-fated trip to the CDC in the season 1 finale, were back on track with the novels. But compared to the books, which feature nuanced portrayals of frightened people wholl do whatever it takes to survive, these characters are damned frustrating.

Conclusion There is scope to improve safe venesection based on ferritin and haemoglobin. There was variation in how aggressively patients were venesected in clinic. One contributing factor is thought to be the differing target values used by haematologists and gastroenterologists in the hospital. In an attempt to address this the venesection protocol is to be standardised across patients. This is a popular change with venesection clinic staff. Another factor is that patients individual venesection booklets do not follow their case notes to clinic appointments. This would allow clinicians to monitor patients venesection more actively. ...
Excretory treatment modalities that excrete pathological substances outside human body deserve more research attention as this may potentiate the therapeutic effects of pharmacological treatments. Overcoming language barrier through translating the national medical literature to medical English to be introduced to the international medical literature is vital. Wet cupping therapy (WCT) of prophetic medicine (Al-hijamah) is practiced in the Arabic medical literature where it is reported to treat many diseases differing in etiology and pathogenesis. Al-hijamah may be referred to as bloodletting cupping therapy or blood cupping therapy in medical studies and reports from Arabic countries. Both Chinese dry cupping therapy and WCT are partial steps of Al-hijamah. In this article, we review scientific principles, methodology, indications and therapeutic benefits of Al-hijamah in comparison with acupuncture and other types of cupping therapy. Scientific and medical bases of Al-hijamah were recently reported in
Chemotherapy for either small cell or non-small cell lung cancer tends to be fairly aggressive and can produce some difficult side effects. While chemotherapy is focused on destroying lung cancer cells it can also interferes with the production of the three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Normally, just before you start a chemotherapy session, your doctor arranges for you to have blood tests to determine the effect the chemotherapy is having on your blood cells. Low counts of any of these cells may prompt either a change in dosage or frequency of treatment, or a need to take medication that can stimulate bone marrow production of the blood cells.. Your colds may be due to the chemotherapys suppression of the bone marrows production of white blood cells, which are the bodys infection fighters. If your doctor feels that your white cell count has significantly decreased, he or she may consider putting you on a medication for this condition. Ask your ...
Where have all the leaches gone? These days it is nearly impossible to find a doctor who will treat you for perturbations of noxious bile. For 2000 years, the four humors were the basis of all medial care. Doctors knew that when bile became unbalanced you became ill. The relationship of red - black - yellow bile and phlegm defined our physical and mental health. Sad to say those practitioners are now hard to find. It may disappoint my patients to know that I too know very little about "humorous medicine" and thus can offer little in the way of a good bloodletting or hot cupping.. On the other hand, I do think that blood is very important and has a critical role in our health. My practice relies on that modern version of phlebotomy, the blood test. The most basic of these is the Complete Blood Count or CBC. It is probably a good idea for all of us to have a basic understanding of this valuable measurement of our well-being.. The CBC tests the three solid components of blood made in the bone ...
Laboratory testing among patients undergoing cardiac surgery can lead to excessive bloodletting, which can increase the risk of developing hospital-acquired anemia and the need for blood transfusion, according to an article in the March 2015 issue of The Annals of Thoracic Surgery.
Paul Carnot (16 November 1869 - 1 June 1957) was a French physician born in Limoges. He served as médecin des hôpitaux in Paris, becoming a professor of therapeutic medicine in 1918 to the Paris medical faculty. In 1922 he was elected as a member to the Académie de Médecine. In 1906 he coined the term hémopoïétine (hemopoietin) to define a humoral factor he believed was responsible for regulation of red blood cell production. This being based on experiments with laboratory rabbits that he conducted with his graduate student Clotilde-Camille DeFlandre. They noticed that an increase of reticulocytes in normal rabbits occurred following the injection of blood plasma taken from anemic donor rabbits who had earlier been subject to bloodletting. Findings from their research were published in a paper titled Sur lactivité hémopoïétique du sérum au cours de la régénération du sang (On the hemopoietic activity of serum during the regeneration of blood). Carnot was the author of numerous ...

thanks to the efforts and insight of the Aesculapian Society, particularly Michael Chaikoff and Soniya Sharma, many of us had the opportunity to hear from and meet with Dr. Vincent Lam, who was this years H.G. Kelly Memorial lecturer. Dr. Lam is an Emergency Medicine physician and award-winning author of a number of works including "Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures" and "The Headmasters Wager". In his address, Dr. Lam made the case for the role of storytelling as a way of understanding and deepening communication between physicians and their patients, not only as a means of transferring important information, but he also spoke of how it can contextualize the relationship in more human and personally meaningful terms. In conversation afterward, I asked him about the process of novel writing. I had always naively assumed that the author begins the process with an outline of the completed story and goes about adding detail and context. Apparently not so. Most authors, including Dr. Lam, begin by ...
Background: Insecticides may have negative effects on reproductive organs. Given the interaction between leptin and the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis, we sought to investigate the changes in leptin and the HPG axis in adult male rats poisoned with Proteus and Biscaya insecticides. Methods: Our experimental subjects were 110 adult male Wistar rats (80-90 days of age; average weight=200-210 g). They were randomly split into 11 groups of 10 rats: control, sham, and 9 experimental groups namely treatment with 2.75, 5.5, and 11 mg/kg/BW of Proteus, treatment with 1.5, 3, and 6 mg/kg/BW of Biscaya, treatment with 2.75 mg/kg/BW of Proteus+1.5 mg/kg/BW of Biscaya, treatment with 5.5 mg/kg/BW of Proteus+3 mg/kg/BW of Biscaya, and treatment with 11 mg/kg/BW of Proteus+6 mg/kg/BW of Biscaya. Intraperitoneal injections were performed over a 14-day period. For bloodletting at the end of the experiment, blood samples were withdrawn from the rats in order to investigate the serum concentration of
Galen. Before the advent of evidence-based medicine, most physicians took an attitude like Galens toward their prescriptions. If their remedies did not work, surely the fault was with their patient. For centuries scores of revered doctors did not consider putting bloodletting or trepanation to the test. Randomized trials to evaluate the efficacy of a treatment were not common practice. Doctors like Archie Cochrane, who fought to make them part of standard protocol, were met with fierce resistance. Philip Tetlock, author of Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction (2015), contends that the state of forecasting in the 21st century is strikingly similar to medicine in the 19th. Initiatives like the Good Judgement Project (GJP), a website that allows anyone to make predictions about world events, have shown that even a discipline that is largely at the mercy of chance can be put on a scientific footing.. More than once the author reminds us that the key to success in this endeavor is not ...
Oral health has been a concern for long before Shakespeare wrote his classic works. As early as the medieval times, people took care of their teeth, though through crude means such as cleaning with charcoal, bloodletting in case of certain types of a toothache, and the use of amulets, charms, and herbs. Many of the oral health problems in existence now were experienced in those times such as tooth decay, bad breath as a result of tartar buildup, and herpes simplex which is thought to be referenced in Romeo and Juliet as blisters on the lips. Books were even published in the 15th century on tooth extraction, treatment of tooth decay and jaw fractures, and oral hygiene. There have been major advances in oral health procedures since then; doing away with the crude methods, taking away the terror, and making it easier to achieve a beautiful smile. Here are ways you could maintain or improve your facial appearance today with the help of Sunnyvale oral surgeons.. Dental implants: whether youve lost ...
MENTAL DISORDERS are not static phenomena. At various times schizophrenia did not exist, bipolardisorder was manic depression and depressive disorder was melancholia treated by blood-letting (Benham, 1915). Homosexuality was a mental disorder subsequently re-classified as sexual orientation disturbance in 1974, before being removed from the DSM in 1987. Whilst major revisions in the classification of mental disorder occur…

The National Library of Medicine refers to this anonymous and undated manuscript as, Two Anatomical Drawings: a bloodletting figure and a venous figure (MS P 5, fol. A). The work consists of two anatomical drawings occurring on one side of a loose sheet of paper discovered inside a copy made in 1681 (1092 by the Islamic calendar) of the Persian-language medical enyclopedia Zakhirah-i KhvarazmShahi written by Jurjani. The anatomical figures, however, are on very different paper from that of the main volume and appear to have been drawn sometime in the 18th century. The loose sheet has been designated "MS P 5 fol. A" and is now placed in a separate folder. The two figures are drawn on the same side of the piece of paper. A fold at the midpoint separates the two figures.. The righthand figure shows the venous system, with the internal organs colored with opaque watercolors and some of the veins labeled. It is clearly derivative from the venous figures usually associated with the Tashrih-i Mansuri ...
Uncharacteristically, there is no nudity in the film. Even the toothbrush penetration is performed both with panties on and under the cover of an oval of pixelation (which tells you what part of Asia youre in, if you didnt already know). In stark contrast, the gore is plentiful and disgustingly over-the-top. After the initial blood-drenched crotch-stabbing, the protagonist chews off a finger. Her alter ego stabs herself repeatedly with a fork, licks the blood off, slits a wrist, opens up her belly, removes her entrails before feasting on them, cuts off her tongue, and then thrusts the knife into her forehead. True to form, Tamakichis camera gets off on every detail, lingering on each of these acts, as well as on the motionless bodies after all the carnage, zooming in on a bloodied crotch as if possessed by the spirit of Jess Franco.. Is there any point to all this surreal and nauseating bloodletting? The only attempt at contextualizing the mayhem comes in the form of the black and white ...

It has been awhile since I updated this blog … and for good reason - there hasnt been anything to say. Two years ago, April 10th, I had my last chemo treatment. File that under "WOW, Time flies!!" Today, I had my quarterly blood-letting to check to see how things are going. In some respects, those two years have passed like I only blinked my eyes, but in others, I realize how much I have accomplished and how my life has changed … for the better. Throughout it all, my doctor has been thrilled with my blood values, as they have been smack dab in the middle of the normal range. That changed today.. Today my visit brought a bit of news. My lymphocyte count is no longer in the normal range; it has crossed the line into the "high" territory. At this juncture, the doctor is adopting a wait and see attitude because I have recently been sick, and that could be the cause of the elevated lymphocyte count. We discussed testing, but since the tests she would run at this time were negative when my system ...

In early August cases of "malignant fever" broke out among Philadelphlans along the citys waterfront. Like the last epidemic, thirty years before, it would turn out to be yellow fever. By August 19 Dr. Benjamin Rush knew that an epidemic was under way and felt certain (wrongly) that its cause lay in rotting coffee left on the Bells Arch Street wharf in July by a Santo Domingan sloop, the Amelia . The spoiled coffees effluvium had permeated the air around the docks, Rush theorized, conducting the hated fever into the lungs of waterfront residents. When he consulted with two of his colleagues about the symptoms they were seeing, the meeting was reported in the local newspapers as confirmation of a city health crisis. "I have not seen a fever of so much malignity, so general," he wrote to Dr. James Hutchinson on August 24, "since the year 1762." Dr. Rush stood apart from many of his peers in his belief that rotten coffee was the agent and in his prescription: he was a purge and bloodletting man. ...
Last Monday marked the centenary of the outbreak of the First Word War. It was a period of bloodletting unsurpassed in history.

apr/05_0213.htm.. Robert Burton, an English Anglican priest, was one of the most educated and widely read men of his day. He lived from 1577 to 1640 and is remembered for his influential treatise, The Anatomy of Melancholy (1). Lacking knowledge of biophysical processes, early healers sought to develop models for the treatment of mental illness. In Anatomy, Burton reviews this history as well as the most modern theories of the 17th century. At that time, melancholy referred to all mental diseases and conditions and was considered one of four humours that controlled body systems: blood was a hot, sweet, red humour; phlegm was cold and moist; and choler was hot and dry. But melancholy was "cold and dry, thick, black, and sour, begotten of the more feculent part of nourishment, and purged from the spleen." In the 17th century, treatment for an imbalance in melancholy might have included teas, infusions, or broths of laurel, white hellebore, bugloss, marigold, or pennyroyal - or even bloodletting ...
SHANGHAI, China - Chinese stocks plunged nearly 9 percent Tuesday, their biggest drop in a decade, rattling markets from Hong Kong to Singapore and as far away as New York amid fears of a slowdown in Chinas economy. Investors were also spooked by comments Monday from former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, who said a recession in the U.S. was "possible" later this year. One day after sending Shanghais benchmark index to a record, investors dumped stocks to lock in profits amid speculation about a fresh round of austerity measures from Beijing to slow the nations sizzling economy. The Shanghai Composite Index tumbled 8.8 percent, or 268.81 points, to close at 2,771.79, its largest decline since it fell 8.9 percent on Feb. 18, 1997, at the time of the death of Communist Party elder Deng Xiaoping. The bloodletting continued when trading began in Asia on Wednesday. Australias benchmark S&P/ASX200 index slumped 3.45 percent in the first 30 minutes of trading. In Japan, the Nikkei 225 ...
Martha Washington was sitting at the foot of the bed when he died. When Doctor Craik pronounced George Washington dead, she said: Is he gone? Tis well. All is now over. I shall soon follow him. I have no more trials to pass through. They had been married for forty years. On December 19th, 1799, five days later, Doctors Craik and Dick published in the local newspaper, The Times of Alexandria, the following account: Some time in the night of Friday, the 13th, having been exposed to rain on the preceding day, General Washington was attacked with an inflammatory affection of the upper part of the windpipe, called in technical language, cynanche trachealis. The disease commenced with a violent ague, accompanied with some pain in the upper and forepart of the throat, a sense of stricture in the same part, a cough, and a difficult rather than painful deglutition, which were soon succeeded by fever and a quick and laborious respiration. The necessity of bloodletting suggesting itself to the General, ...

Bangladeshs history in its first decade of freedom was fundamentally a story of bloodletting. You do not have to go into research to arrive at such a morbid conclusion. But you cannot escape feeling a certain sense of irony as you recapitulate the whole episode of the countrys actually claiming, and taking, its place in the global community. If the war of liberation in 1971 saw three million Bengalis dying at the hands of the Pakistan armed forces, the post-liberation era turned into a long tale of blood and gore as most of the new nations founding fathers and war heroes bit the dust through bloody coups detat and internecine armed conflict. The series of tragic happenings that engulfed Bangladesh between August and November 1975, followed by the execution of Abu Tahir, a soldier for freedom, in July 1976, will remain a blot on the conscience of a nation which yet struggles to find a way out of the woods for itself. ...

Bruce Rutter is a marketing professor at Penn State University, a position he has been able to retain thanks to Mount Nittany Medical Centers Outpatient Anticoagulation Clinic.. "I havent had a blood clot in the past six years," said Rutter. "Since I started going to the Anticoagulation Clinic, I havent had any difficulties. The clinic saved my life.". Rutter had good health up until about twelve years ago when he experienced three blood clots within five years. His doctor thought the fluctuations in his INR levels, which assess the degree of clotting in blood, could be taken care of and monitored more efficiently at the Anticoagulation Clinic.. Rutter now visits the Anticoagulation Clinic at Mount Nittany Medical Center once every two or three weeks for appointments lasting about one half hour. While he has had many positive visits with instant results and no bloodletting, Rutter says the people are the highlight of his experiences.. "The pharmacists are some of the finest people I have met. ...
Once upon a time, U.S. politicians promised a "chicken in every pot." Now, with the rise in U.S. terror tactics, they promise "a wolf kept from every door." Nothing constructive gets done, but at least the population is (uhhh) safe while not doing it. In 2011 the Department of Homeland Security was allocated a budget of $98 billion. Its total financial infusion since it was created in 2001 is not something I can find. In that time, the exact number of suspects arrested under terror statutes is likewise unclear. What is clear is that a infinitesimal number was ever convicted for the crimes they were alleged to have committed. With spending of something less than a trillion dollars over a ten-year period, certainly the fear factor has risen even if bang-for-the-buck has not. When was the last time anyone spelled out the "credible threat" that precipitated that latest blood-letting? When was the last time anyone looked carefully at the when and how of the creation of "al Qaida," a strawman figment ...
This is my domain," the goddess answered, making a grand gesture. "All that you see is under my watchful, benevolent eye, and the protection of my just laws and invincible amazon army and fleet from my temple city to the mountains and the far shores of the inland sea. Pax Salamandras." She pointed to the sea in question. "Although, the Vikings and various empires do send raiding parties now and then, which is actually a good thing. It keeps my beautiful she-warriors on their toes and provides fresh blood." She fed Cynthia another slice of fruit, this time a juicy peach. "I mean blood as in breeding material, of course. Theres a lot of sword bashing, spear jabbing, and arrow plunking, but very little actual bloodletting, and all wounds are easily healed. After a valiant effort, the raiders scamper back to their side of the sea, or more precisely, row back. And we raid them as well, on occasion. Again, for breeding purposes ...
This act of brutal bloodletting, which mercifully turned out to be rather shortlived - thanks to the prompt intervention of the Kolkata High Court immediately asking for a CBI enquiry and thereby compelling the marauding forces beat a hasty retreat, radically worsened the situation. Even a much belated categoricalassurance by the Chief Minister as regards dropping of the current plan for the chemical hub in Nandigram failed to assuage the hurt feelings of the villagers in view of the stae governments dogged refusal to institute any credible enquiry into the massive atrocities on march 14 and provide relief, rehabilitation and reparation for the victims of March 14 terror attack. Quite unfortunately, the laudable attempts at reconciliation by senior Left leaders like Jyoti Basu and then Ashok Ghosh were actively sabotaged by the government and the CPIM leadership. The wild and unsubstantiated allegation of international conspiracy by Brinda Karat in the interim only went to inflame passions ...
Anders Manga is an artist, songwriter, and producer hailing from Charlotte, United States, who has released and self produced 5 albums since 2005. His music has been described as a blend of gothic rock, industrial, metal, EBM and 80s influences into a modern, melodic electro-rock sound. Some reviewers have described it as "Gothtronica" while Anders simply refers to it as "Electronic Rock". Regardless of the genre you wish to classify his music, the listeners continue to grow worldwide on a daily basis. In 2007 Anders was nominated for "Band of the Year" by Gothic Beauty Magazine readers alongside Lacuna Coil, Skinny Puppy, and an artist he lists as one of his earliest influences, Gary Numan. Over the last few years, his fan base has crossed over into the horror film genre, where he has contributed music to over 12 films. The Horror network, FearNet.com referred to Anders work as "wickedly inventive" while Pseudopod.org, the worlds premier horror fiction podcast has used Anders "Bloodletting ...

Drug violence is nothing new, though the scale in Mexico is really astounding. It makes me wonder exactly how violent and unstable it can get before there really becomes something to the notion of cyclical revolution. Also interesting to me is the globalization of terrorist forms such as beheading videos and beheading displays. These have spread from the utterly perverse, deeply ideological, and ritualistic bloodletting of al Qaeda to the utterly perverse but tactical murders undertaken by Mexican drug gangs. I didnst see any prediction of this. It is really astonishing and worth some consideration, is it not? I dont see suicide bombings being next, but when drug gangs adopt the approaches of apocalyptic terrorist organizaitons it is starting to seem less like a law enforcement issue and more like a systemic crisis ...

Cancer is an inflammatory process giving rise to many chronic conditions such as anemia. Cancer therapies, such as radiation or chemotherapy, decrease bone marrow production of red blood cells as well as a decreased ability to respond to erythropoietin. Cancer patients often lose blood due to surgery or become anemic from poor nutrition, chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.
Anemia, or low hemoglobin levels, is usually due to one of three processes: bleeding, bone marrow production problems, or hemolysis (i.e. excessive red cell bre
We all understand that CLL is a disease of the immune system, but we need to keep in mind that its dysfunction can be manifested both as its diminished capacity to fight off infections and secondary cancers, and its increased tendencies to attack our own healthy cells, especially the blood cells.. It is the second set of problems that is the subject of this review.. These common complications of CLL are collectively known as autoimmune disease (AID) and need to be recognized and managed differently than the CLL itself.. As autoimmune disease and advancing cancer with decreased bone marrow production can both lead to low blood counts, it is critical that when anemia (not enough red blood cells) or a low platelet count is discovered that AID is ruled out before starting on therapy for the CLL. Moreover the treatment choices for AID are often more diverse and gentler than the therapies for CLL.. ...
He said that there wouldnt be much effect after just one venesection and that they would check it after 6 or so of them. Not good enough, I said, telling him of the grief that I would suffer when SWMBO asked for the non-existent test-result, and that we werent going to be happy waiting about 30 weeks to find out if the procedures were working. After me threatening to give SWMBO his email address he relented and said that they would do a test at the next monthly consultation.. I told him again that his "6 weekly" instruction on the venesection referral form had been "interpreted" by me and by LGH as "one a week for 6 weeks" and that the second "bleed" was provisionally booked for today (21st October), 11 days after the first one. He said that he had intended it to mean "1 every 6 weeks", I told him that if that was what he meant, he should have written that instead. I told him that I felt fine, and pointed out that according to his own results my Hb had recovered within only 10 days, so there ...

Aleppo, Syrias largest city and economic hub, has a population that has remained largely loyal to President Bashar Assad and has been largely spared from the violence that has plagued other Syrian cities. in student quarters next to Aleppo Universitys main campus late Wednesday when security forces and pro-regime gunmen swept into their residences, firing tear gas at first, then live ammunition to disperse them. The raid followed an attack on the protesters by pro-regime students armed with knives, activists said. Student activist Thaer al-Ahmed said panic and chaos ensued as students tried to flee. "Some students ran to their rooms to take cover but they were followed to their rooms, beaten up and arrested," he said. "Others suffered cuts and broken bones as they tried to flee." Raids and intermittent gunfire continued for about five hours through early Thursday, he said, adding that dozens of people were wounded, some critically, and around 50 students were arrested at the state-run ...

Homeopathy is a much maligned and misunderstood alternative therapy.

While that attempt failed, homeopathy is generally looked down upon be conventional veterinarians. To understand why, we need to take a closer look at homeopathy.. The modern practice of homeopathy began with the work of Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). He was a German physician who became disenchanted with the harsh methods, such as bloodletting and purgation, used by his fellow physicians. He made enemies of his colleagues when he demonstrated that the kings doctors had inadvertently bled him to death during treatment. Hahnemann dropped out of medicine and made a living translating medical texts. It was from his work with ancient manuscripts that he was introduced to the "principle of similar" which claims that a substance that causes certain symptoms ...

The Museums collections of medical science artifacts represent nearly all aspects of health and medical practice. Highlights include early X-ray apparatuses, such as one of Wilhelm Roentgens tubes, penicillin mold from Alexander Flemings experiments, and Jonas Salks original polio vaccine. More recent acquisitions include the first artificial heart implanted in a human, the earliest genetically engineered drugs, and materials related to David, the "Bubble Boy." Other artifacts range from artificial limbs and implant devices to bloodletting and dental instruments, beauty products, and veterinary equipment. The contents of a medieval apothecary shop and an 1890s drugstore form part of the collections, along with patent and alternative medicines. The collections also document the many differing perspectives on health and medical issues, from patients, family members, doctors, nurses, medical students, and out-of-the-mainstream health practitioners. ...
A 22-year-old patient presented with hemoptysis and dyspnea on exertion. When the patient was a child, an atrial septal defect and Ebsteins anomaly had been diagnosed. The parents and the patient refused any treatment. Physical condition was reduced, and lip cyanosis was present as well as clubbing of the fingers (A and B). A systolic murmur was audible at the lower left sternal border. Hematocrit was significantly elevated at 79%.. X-ray confirmed cardiomegaly (C), and electrocardiography revealed a complete right bundle branch block and right-axis deviation (D). Transthoracic echocardiography showed a dilated right atrium (RA) (85 mm) and an atrialized ventricle (E, Online Video 1). An atrial septal defect with a prominent right-to-left-shunt was visualized (E, arrow; Online Video 2). Severe tricuspid insufficiency with coaptation failure (F and G, arrowhead; Online Video 3) and hypermobile anterior leaflet (F, arrow) was confirmed..

The effect of phlebotomy on the liver histology of patients with chronic hepatitis C has been demonstrated in several reports. Thus, Yanoet al.[20] treated 25 patients with maintained phlebotomies (5 years) and included a control group (n = 13) who were nonresponders to interferon. A second liver biopsy was obtained more than 3 years after the beginning of phlebotomies. They observed a significant reduction in the fibrosis score from 2.3 to 1.7 in the phlebotomy group, while this score increased from 1.7 to 2.0 in the controls. Moreover, the severity of inflammation increased significantly in the control group (from 2.0 to 2.9), but remained unchanged in the phlebotomy group. Similar results were obtained by other authors.[19, 22] A high hepatic iron concentration before treatment has been reported associated with histological improvement.[19] Thus, up to 70% of patients with hepatic iron concentration greater than 20 μmol/g of dry tissue in the basal liver biopsy achieved histological ...
This study assesses the activity and safety profile of twice-daily oral doses of midostaurin in patients with aggressive systemic mastocytosis (ASM) or mast cell leukemia (MCL) with or without associated clonal hematological non-mast cell lineage disease (AHNMD).. Aggressive systemic mastocytosis (ASM) and mast cell leukemia (MCL) are characterized by excessive bone marrow production of mast cells which can can infiltrate tissues and release harmful substances, resulting in organ damage. These diseases have very limited treatment options and poor prognosis. Existing treatments for in advanced mast cell disease, eg, interferon-alpha; corticosteroids; and/or cladribine, exhibit low response rates that are usually partial in nature. ...
Background Since 1950, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) cupping therapy has been applied as a formal modality in hospitals throughout China and elsewhere in the world. Based on a previous systematic literature review of clinical studies on cupping therapy, this study presents a thorough review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the therapeutic effect of cupping therapy. Method Six databases were searched for articles published through 2010. RCTs on cupping therapy for various diseases were included. Studies on cupping therapy combined with other TCM treatments versus non-TCM therapies were excluded. Results 135 RCTs published from 1992 through 2010 were identified. The studies were generally of low methodological quality. Diseases for which cupping therapy was commonly applied were herpes zoster, facial paralysis (Bell palsy), cough and dyspnea, acne, lumbar disc herniation, and cervical spondylosis. Wet cupping was used in most trials, followed by retained cupping, moving cupping,
Treatment of thrombocytopenia varies according to the cause. If thrombocytopenia is drug-induced, then removal of the offending agents should correct the condition.. Corticosteroids may be used to increase platelet production. Lithium carbonate or folate may also be used to stimulate the bone marrow production of platelets. Platelet transfusions may be used to stop episodic abnormal bleeding caused by a low platelet count. However, if platelet destruction results from an immune disorder, platelet infusions may have only a minimal effect and may be reserved for life-threatening bleeding.. Splenectomy may be necessary to correct thrombocytopenia caused by platelet destruction. A splenectomy should significantly reduce platelet destruction because the spleen acts as the primary site of platelet removal and antibody production.. Patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura may require high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin. Patients with thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura will probably require ...
Historically, the term haemochromatosis (spelled hemochromatosis in American English) was initially used to refer to what is now more specifically called haemochromatosis type 1 (or HFE-related hereditary haemochromatosis). Currently, haemochromatosis (without further specification) is mostly defined as iron overload with a hereditary/primary cause,[26][27] or originating from a metabolic disorder.[28] However, the term is currently also used more broadly to refer to any form of iron overload, thus requiring specification of the cause, for example, hereditary haemochromatosis. Hereditary haemochromatosis is an autosomal recessive disorder with estimated prevalence in the population of 1 in 200 among patients with European ancestry, with lower incidence in other ethnic groups.[29] The gene responsible for hereditary haemochromatosis (known as HFE gene) is located on chromosome 6; the majority of hereditary haemochromatosis patients have mutations in this HFE gene.. Hereditary haemochromatosis is ...
