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)

Oct. 27, 2015 - In New Delhi, India, dozens of patients a day seek treatment at Rahat Open Surgery, where a practitioner uses a razor blade to draw blood. The practice is widely discredited in Western medicine-aside from its modern-day application for a few conditions-but those who still perform bloodletting, or phlebotomy, believe that bad blood is the source of most infirmities. Some patients look with hope to the New Delhi center when more traditional treatments fail to help them or when doctors tell them their ailments are incurable. Bloodletting originated thousands of years ago, and its popularity peaked in the 19th century.Click here to read more:Bloodletting Is Still Happening, Despite Centuries of Harm
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. Surgeons who do plastic and reconstructive surgery find ...

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. A number of medical historians believe the King George III suffered from a form of porphyria, an inherited disease in which the patient lacks one of the enzymes required to break down hemoglobin into smaller molecules which can then be excreted by the kidneys. 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. The Prince Regent had a long history of various types of illness, including abdominal pain, and he was a great believer in blood-letting, having it done whenever he felt unwell.

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 ...

Venesection and arteriotomy, done with lancet, scarifier, or fleam, were thought to abate disease by the general effects of bloodletting on the body. Leeches eventually became a popular alternative to the more mechanical instruments of bloodletting, such as the fleam and lancet. Leeches considered to be less painful and more dependable in removing a fixed amount of blood ...
Hippocrates espoused a theory of humoralism wherein disease is resultant of a shifting balance in bodily fluids including blood, phlegm, black bile, and yellow bile.[132] According to humoralism, each fluid or humour has temperamental or behavioral correlates. In the case of psychosis, symptoms are thought to be caused by an excess of both blood and yellow bile. Thus, the proposed surgical intervention for psychotic or manic behavior was bloodletting.[133]. 18th century physician, educator, and widely considered founder of American psychiatry, Benjamin Rush, also prescribed bloodletting as a first-line treatment for psychosis. Although not a proponent of humoralism, Rush believed that active purging and bloodletting were efficacious corrections for disruptions in the circulatory system, a complication he believed was the primary cause of insanity.[134] Although Rushs treatment modalities are now considered antiquated and brutish, his contributions to psychiatry, namely the biological ...
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.. ...

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 ...

One of the great tragedies of Africa is not only the fact that a million people-mostly civilians and a large proportion of them children-died in one of Africas first post-independence wars, but that until it happened the world thought Nigeria was immune from the wasting disease of tribalism. It certainly was not because the Biafran War is still the most expansive tribal conflagration that the continent has experienced-barring perhaps the ongoing Great Lakes conflict-involving the forces of East and West, only this time, with the British siding with the Soviets. Worse, some of the religious differences that emerged before and after that dreadful carnage are still with us today. During the course of hostilities that lasted almost four years, a lot of other shortcomings surfaced in Africas most populous nation, including the kind of corruption that, until then, had always been linked to countries rich in oil. Disunity, incompetence and instability-from which Nigeria never really recovered-also ...

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 ...

This transgressive approach to beauty is used to staggering effect throughout the work of Saint Genet. Despite changing their name from Implied Violence (formed in 2003) following the departure of one of their creative directors in early 2010, they have continued to work in a style that mixes a broad range of physical, sonic, and aesthetic components such as ballet, archery, ecstatic fits, Shaker hymns, sculptures of dripping wax, couture-grade gowns, nudity, modern dance, video, and ritual blood-letting with medical leeches. Sometimes lovely as gold, yet carnal as pornography-this marriage of themes and media is not always an intrinsically pleasurable experience for the audience or performer. Inspired by the dramaturgy of Bertolt Brecht, and Antonin Artauds Theater of Cruelty, physical exhaustion and heightened mental states bordering on hysteria are as integral parts of the work as the experience of empathy, horror, or curiosity evoked from the audience. Unlike the fabricated narrative of ...
Blood-letting was believed to drive out evil spirits; therefore, the process was performed by a priest, which was also a doctor at that time. That is, the physician can not divulge if somebody is infected with hepa B virus or not to just anybody, besides after all to the affected person or proxy.. Used in the medical discipline to locate diseased tissues (these areas emit irregular warmth in comparison with the other areas) and injury by analysing the physique tissue and physique fluid. An increasing number of people are turning to various medicines and therapy these days due to its recognition and quite a few well being advantages.. Normally, medieval medicine was a mix of historic physiology, empirical knowledge of the results of some medication, medical superstition and the charlatanism of apothecaries. Drugs could also be classified on the premise of signs or illnesses during which theyre used.. If uncovered to infrared radiation for a very long time, the body can lose fluid or water and ...
Homeopathy is a much maligned and misunderstood alternative therapy. A few years ago there was a movement among a small group of conventional veterinarians to have homeopathy labeled as ineffective by the American Veterinary Medical Association. 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 ...

Classic Maya rule was centred in a royal culture that was displayed in all areas of Classic Maya art. The king was the supreme ruler and held a semi-divine status that made him the mediator between the mortal realm and that of the gods. From very early times, kings were specifically identified with the young maize god, whose gift of maize was the basis of Mesoamerican civilization. Maya royal succession was patrilineal, and royal power only passed to queens when doing otherwise would result in the extinction of the dynasty. Typically, power was passed to the eldest son. A young prince was called a chʼok (youth), although this word later came to refer to nobility in general. The royal heir was called bʼaah chʼok (head youth). Various points in the young princes childhood were marked by ritual; the most important was a bloodletting ceremony at age five or six years. Although being of the royal bloodline was of utmost importance, the heir also had to be a successful war leader, as ...
SURIGAO CITY (MindaNews / 1 Aug) - Dont count on Surigaonons, specifically those in Surigao del Norte, to donate blood. They are more on the receiving end.. This is the observation of two blood banks in the city, who said they have been struggling just to cope with the shortage of blood.. Ralph Condrad L. de Guzman, a nurse at the Caraga Regional Hospital Blood Bank, said they been calling on individuals and groups here to donate blood, but their please apparently fell on deaf ears. You can seldom count on people here to donate their blood, he lamented.. Many of the donors, he said, come from the towns in neighboring Dinagat Island.. The towns of San Jose, Dinagat, Cagdianao and Basilisa - all in Dinagat province - have been reliable sources because of their blood-letting activities, De Guzman said.. The Red Cross corroborates De Guzmans observation.. Almejoy P. Sadangsal, the local chapter service representative for the groups blood program, said that the lack of information campaign and ...
Perhaps they never got the letter. Perhaps they did not believe it, for who would believe such a tale in a land where all mens shapes are the same? Perhaps they were too consumed with their horses and bloodletting to come so far. Perhaps they sent someone, and he crossed eight or nine rivers, an inland sea, a jungle thick with panthers and bats, only to perish in the great desert which separates us from the world. Perhaps even now there is a man-a doctor? A clerk?-lying face down in the sand, his bones whitening under the bone-parched sky, clutching a second letter in his skeletal hand, a letter which says: John, we hear, and we will welcome you home. Perhaps no such man ever set out. Does it matter? I am here, your own sweet succubus-remember how long you called me succubus, after all the other names had silenced themselves on your lips?-is that not enough? ...
Thought-provoking article. The political origins of Judaism and Islam are indeed similar: both are based on bloodletting at smaller and larger scales. For example, Moses shed the blood of the Egyptian, the Israelites took out the native Canaanites, 1st-century Jews and Romans hung the Christ to die on a tree, early Muslim expansionism took place at the point of a sword. The origin of Christianity is found nascent in Temple ritual and commandment, and in the ability to travel and communicate by means of Roman thoroughfares. Christ proclaimed that he did not come to destroy the Law but to fulfill it. He demonstrated the ways of his God by living a life that would become the foundation for 1st-century Christianity and its development into the Universal Church. By my count, Christ retained 178 of the 613 mitzvot, the remaining 435 being either morally neutral or unjust (by Catholic standards). Among these commandments, he emphasized love of God and love of neighbor as underlying them all. He taught ...
The Vision Serpent is an important creature in Pre-Columbian Maya mythology, although the term itself is now slowly becoming outdated. The serpent was a very important social and religious symbol, revered by the Maya. Maya mythology describes serpents as being the vehicles by which celestial bodies, such as the sun and stars, cross the heavens. The shedding of their skin made them a symbol of rebirth and renewal. They were so revered, that one of the main Mesoamerican deities, Quetzalcoatl, was represented as a feathered serpent. The name means beautiful serpent (From Nahuatl, Quetzalli means beautiful and coatl meaning snake or serpent.). The Vision Serpent is thought to be the most important of the Maya serpents. It was usually bearded and had a rounded snout. It was also often depicted as having two heads or with the spirit of a god or ancestor emerging from its jaws. During Maya bloodletting rituals, participants would experience visions in which they communicated with the ancestors ...
Even medical science admits that about a hundred years ago, doctors actually hurt people more than helped. I personally feel that is still the case in 2009. Bloodletting was often used as a remedy in the 1800's. . In the 1950's , we had doctors doing TV commercials for Camel ciggarettes. In 1973 we let abortion become law of the land and this is a defacto abandonment of the Hippocratic oath ...

HUK was delighted to see iron overload (genetic haemochromatosis) debated in parliament yesterday (03 July 2019) for a full hour, in the presence of health minister Mrs Seema Kennedy MP and led by Mark Pawsey MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Genetic Haemochromatosis.. The debate was wide ranging, with MPs touching on symptoms, prevalence, penetrance, and on the major issue of significant underdiagnosis. There was considerable emphasis on the dual benefit of early diagnosis - alleviating patient suffering and saving NHS resources. Members were present from across the UK and across the political parties. Several had responded to contact from constituents affected and who had been prepared to tell their stories.. The full debate was recorded by ParliamentLive TV and can be viewed here:. ...
Phlebotomy technicians are medical professionals who are trained to draw blood from patients either from a vein, a finger, or a heel stick on infants. Although that is the basic description of their job, phlebotomy technicians are often involved in a variety of tasks during their workday. In addition to the actual drawing of blood, phlebotomy technicians identify the tests to be performed as directed by a physician, practice safety procedures for both themselves and the patient, explain procedures to patients, properly label tubes of blood, and instruct patients how to care for the puncture site. Since many patients are nervous about having their blood drawn, phlebotomy technicians must have the ability to calm patients who experience anxiety while undergoing a procedure. Because they perform such an important role in the eventual diagnosis and treatment of patients, phlebotomy technicians are an essential part of a medical team.. Phlebotomy technicians often work in a variety of settings ...
DIAGNOSIS Multiple intracranial meningeal extramedullary hematopoiesis DISCUSSION EMH occurs as a compensatory mechanism in a variety of disorders characterized by a chronic hematopoietic deficit such as thalassemia major and intermedia, congenital spherocytosis and sickle cell anemia, and bone marrow dysfunction seen in myelofibrosis and carcinomatosis. Lymphoma and leukemia can also result in EMH. Intracranial EMH is rare. The pathway of EMH involvement of the dura is unknown, but it is postulated that the dura has hematopoietic capacity in the fetus and EMH may originate from primitive rests. In addition, the epidural space is a potential space that can harbor metastatic or heterotopic tissue deposits. Various hypotheses exist to explain the development of hemopoietic tissue to supplement marrow production. Lyall [8] proposed the possibility of direct extension from marrow into epidural space. Knoblich [4] proposed that multipotential cells in the epidural space can be transformed into marrow ...
The multiple sections of long bone that were evaluated reveal in all cases less of the osteoid formation than that which is associated with the head. The lesions within the cranium reveal areas of mature osteoid formation that is unassociated with any osteoclastic activity. There is a fibrous interwoven matrix that is calcifying and there is replacement of the medullary cavity by this fibrosing reaction. The lesions within the long bones tend to be more subtle and involve not the metaphysis of the bone but the diaphyseal shaft. In these areas again the formation of osteoid tissue is striking. Osteoclastic activity can still be found within the long bones. At the metaphysis there is adequate bone marrow production and along these regions focal osteoclasts are noted to be present. Of interest within the cranial bones the sinusoids are still intact however the bone surrounding them is dense and almost lacks a total woven pattern that one would expect to see within the bones of the head. This ...
More people live with HIV in South Africa (SA) than any other country in the world. In 2010 approximately 68% of all people infected with HIV resided in sub-Saharan Africa, which has only 12% of the worlds population. The roll-out of antiretroviral therapy (ART) commenced in the public sector in SA in 2004 and has increased dramatically since then. According to UNAIDS World AIDS Day Report 2011, 40 - 59% of eligible South Africans were receiving ART by the end of 2010, which is the largest comprehensive ART programme in the world.1 Although widespread access to ART has improved quality of life and reduced AIDS-related deaths and HIV transmission, the challenges to the healthcare sector remain considerable.. Cytopenias. Cytopenias are one of the most common complications of HIV and may be broadly classified as being due either to a bone marrow production defect or to increased peripheral loss or destruction of blood cells. Anaemia is the most common cytopenia and occurs in up to 95% of HIV ...

Immunoglobulin secretion by plasma cells infiltrating synovial membranes is a prominent feature of RA. Previous analyses of a cDNA library generated from synovium of RA patient BC revealed immunoglobulin κ light chain transcripts with extensive somatic mutation, frequent N region addition, and unexpected variation in the lengths of CDR3 regions which form the center of the antigen binding site. To determine if these characteristics are present in other individuals, we performed reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction amplification and sequenced ≥10 Vκ-containing amplicons from nine tissue samples: synovia of three individuals with long-standing RA (including patient BC), PBLs of two of these individuals, and PBLs or splenocytes of four normal individuals. Increased levels of somatic mutation in PBLs appeared to correlate with increased age, which may reflect accumulation of circulating memory cells and/or decreased bone marrow production of naive B lymphocytes. Two of three RA ...
Phlebotomy is a procedure that removes blood from the body. Regular phlebotomy treats people who have too much iron in their blood, such as with hemochromatosis, or who are producing too many red blood cells, such as with polycythemia. Removing blood regularly decreases iron levels in the body by reducing the number of iron-rich red blood cells.. Health professionals perform phlebotomy in a medical clinic. The process is similar to donating blood. A health professional inserts a needle into a vein in your arm and removes about 500 mL (17 fl oz) of blood. The procedure takes about 30 minutes. You do not need to fast or make special preparations before phlebotomy. But try to eat a good meal and drink plenty of fluids before phlebotomy. This will prevent dizziness or fainting.. Health professionals will have you sit or lie down. During the procedure, they monitor your blood pressure and pulse. ...
