Colon cancer is one of the major diseases that claim thousands of lives every year in the USA. The reason has been attributed to American people’s fetish for low fiber-high cholesterol diet. Add to it the lack of physical movement and tensions of modern day living and you will see the reason why USA is one of the five countries where the occurrences of colon cancer are so common.

However, medical science is not sitting idle either and a number of sophisticated treatments are available to deal with the challenges of a bad colon that is the direct consequence of an unhealthy lifestyle. Of late three major types of treatments are most popular in the USA to deal with colon cancer. They are described below.

1. Surgical operation
When colon cancer is detected in an early stage, surgery proves to be extremely beneficial. In an early stage with the aid of a colonoscope, the cancerous cells are removed.

When the cancer is detected at an advanced stage, the surgical procedure that is performed is called resection. It is a process of removing the tumor by making an incision in the abdomen. After the removal of the tumor the colon is stitched back to restore the continuity of the large intestine.

2.Chemotherapy
Chemotherapy is applied in cases of most advanced stages of colon cancer. Chemotherapy literally means killing of cancerous cells through chemical treatment. Two major chemicals that most physicians prefer to apply for the best result in colon cancer are fluorouracil (5-FU) and leucovorin.

3. Radiation Therapy
Most people get startled to hear that radiation is used to treat any disease, as we generally associated with such monstrous things as nuclear bombs. But truth of the matter is that, we are constantly being exposed to some kind of radiation from simple objects of mundane life like mobile phones and even most innocent looking radios. We have to absorb some amount of radiation even as a price for living in this earth. Although radiation is not good for our health but our system somehow copes up in dealing with this. The same is true for the cancer patients who are administered radiation as a therapeutic procedure. In case of colon cancer, patients receive radiation mainly before surgery to make the things easier for the surgeon, as radiation reduces the size of the tumor. After the operation has been performed, radiation is applied to ensure that the tumor doe not come back again. Radiation becomes the only means of treatment to destroy cancerous cells, when it is not possible to remove the tumor by the means of surgery

Usually, radiation is charged externally and each application takes little time to finishÂ…just a few minutes per day. The patient has to undergo the radiation therapy five days a week and the total span of treatment may last for many weeks.

Barring some exceptions, colon cancer is actually the result of unhygienic life style and following the good old adage, “prevention is better than cure? you can prevent this curse ruining your life. A little care for what you eat, simple exercises, little efforts to keep the stress at bay and of course a regular colon cleansing regimen can help you to enjoy life in its fullest.

Complications Arising From Acid Reflux

By , June 27, 2013 10:39 am

481

Acid Reflux or Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which the liquid content of the stomach backs up or refluxes into the esophagus. The liquid can inflame and damage the lining of the esophagus. This regurgitated liquid mainly contains acid and pepsin, both being produced by the stomach. It may also contain bile. Amongst all the contents of the liquid, acid is the most harmful.

Acid Reflux or Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which the liquid content of the stomach backs up or refluxes into the esophagus. The liquid can inflame and damage the lining of the esophagus. This regurgitated liquid mainly contains acid and pepsin, both being produced by the stomach. It may also contain bile. Amongst all the contents of the liquid, acid is the most harmful.

Once GERD starts, it stays for life-long. GERD is a chronic condition and the treatment has to continue indefinitely. The reflux of the stomach’s liquid contents into the esophagus occurs in normal individuals also. The difference of it occurring in GERD patients is that the refluxed liquid contains more acid that often remains in the esophagus for longer duration. The body has ways of protecting itself from the effects of reflux and acid. Saliva contains bicarbonate that neutralizes the small amount of acid that remains in the esophagus. Gravity, swallowing and saliva are the protective mechanisms for the esophagus when an individual is in the upright position.

There are various complications arising because of acid reflux.

Ulcers ?The cells lining the esophagus are sometimes damaged due to the reflux of liquid from the stomach into the esophagus. An ulcer is a break in the lining of the esophagus that occurs in an area of inflammation. It may give rise to bleeding in the esophagus. When the bleeding becomes severe, blood transfusion is required along with endoscopic or surgical treatment.

Strictures ?Scars are formed when the ulcers of the esophagus heal. The scar tissue shrinks and narrows the lumen of the esophagus. This scarred narrowing is called a stricture. It may cause swallowed food to get stuck in the esophagus.
Barrett’s esophagus ?Severe GERD or Long-standing cause cells to change that line the esophagus. These cells then become pre-cancerous and then finally cancerous.

Cough and Asthma ?Some nerves in the esophagus are stimulated by the refluxed acid, which results in pain. Other nerves that are also stimulated provoke coughing. The stimulated esophageal nerves that connect to the nerves going to the lungs causes the breathing tubes to narrow, resulting in an attack of asthma.

Inflammation of the throat and larynx ?When the refluxed liquid gets past the upper esophageal sphincter, it enters the throat and the voice box, causing inflammation and soar throat.

Inflammation and infection of the lungs ?The reflux of liquid into the lungs results in coughing and choking. This can lead to infection of the lungs and result in pneumonia.

Fluid in the sinuses and middle ear ?Found in children, it is caused when the sinuses and middle ears are closed off from the nasal passages by the swelling of the adenoids. Fluid is then accumulated within them.

GERD is treated with life-style changes, antacids, histamine antagonists (H2 blockers), proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), pro-motility drugs, foam barriers, surgery, and endoscopy.

Cleaning of Surgical Instruments

Surgical instruments should be cleaned as soon as possible after use. Blood and debris should never be allowed to dry on an instrument. This only makes them harder to clean,and promotes corrosion.

Surgical instruments should be cleaned as soon as possible after use. Blood and debris should never be allowed to dry on an instrument. This only makes them harder to clean,and promotes corrosion.

Also all the instruments involved in the case should be cleaned
whether they were actually used or not. Immediately after the procedure, or piercing, whatever the case may be, rinse the instruments in demineralized, distilled water to remove excess blood and debris.

NEVER use an abrasive cleaning pad on surgical instruments. This will scar the instruments and leave a scratch or groove where dirt and water deposits can collect and lead to corrosion and pitting. This will also remove the passivation layer, which is the thin film that covers the instrument and protects its finish.

Detergents: It is best to use a neutral ph detergent when cleaning your surgical instruments A ph of 7.0 to 8.5 will have the least adverse effect on the instrument. A detergent that is a low-sudsing free-rinsing and a good wetting agent is best for a washer sterilizer or ultra-sonic cleaner. If a high sudsing detergent is used and all the detergent is not removed then the instruments are more likely to spot and stain.

We had a continuing problem with spotting at one of our clinics and finally determined a new person had been scrubbing the instrument to make them shine. She had rubbed of all of the passivation film and scratched the instruments so much that the cleaning agent was causing them to spot.

Washer sterilizers are a good method of cleaning and sterilizing your instruments, but I know most small shops do have the room or the facilities to use these. The next best thing is an ultrasonic cleaner. This a thorough and rapid way of cleaning your instruments. Surgical instruments can be cleaned and ready to autoclave, or sterilized in a matter of five minutes.

Ultrasonic cleaning is much more effective than hand cleaning, mostly becasue the water is forced by the high frequency into all the crevices of the instruments, escpecially, things like hemostats. An ultrasonic cleaner can remove up to 90% of the soil and debris, but does not eliminate the need for sterilization.

After cleaning your instruments they should be lubricated with an approved surgical lubricant. This should be done to further protect your instruments during sterilization and storage. The lubricant should be water soluble and anti-microbial, and should be used after every cleaning. Follow the manufacturer’s directions to prepare your lucrication bath.

Immediately after cleaning your instruments, dip them into the bath for at least 30 seconds. Remove them and let the excess drain off, do NOT rinse them. The lubrication film should remain on the instruments through the sterilization process and storage to protect them.

I will be adding more articles on sterilization so stay tuned.

Constipation & Free Clinics

constipation

When an individual begins taking new medication, undergoes surgery or changes their diet, they may not realize that they could also be dealing with constipation in the very near future. This is a condition relating to the digestive system where an individual has difficulty with bowel movements, which may be painful or altogether impossible.

Regular bowel movements are necessary in order to keep the digestive system working properly and to avoid hemorrhoids or additional pain. Early symptoms of constipation may be a reduction in or irregularity with bowel movements. Severe stomach pains, cramps or nausea may also be an early warning sign of constipation.

The diagnosis for constipation is fairly simple and may require a brief discussion with a physician, who will note any recent hormonal, dietary or medication changes. An exam may also be required in order to confirm the diagnosis. Once a determination has been made, constipation can be treated in a variety of ways, including the patient being told to drink plenty of water, increase their dietary fiber intake and/or prescription medication.

If home remedies do not relieve constipation, including the consumption of more water, vegetables, foods high in dietary fiber or other over the counter products, some individuals may be forced to look for other options at curing their discomfort. An increasing number of individuals go to work every day, but cannot afford medical insurance or have a job that does not offer coverage. In either of these instances, a free clinic may be the patient’s only hope for relief from constipation. Available to both children and adults, free clinics are located throughout the United States.

While free clinics primarily offer general care and are not equipped to handle surgical procedures, they are crucial to helping patient’s find relief from many common ailments. If an illness requires additional treatment, the patient may be referred to an emergency room or other medical center. Free clinics are typically utilized to treat the onset of common cold or flu symptoms, provide immunizations and treat other common illnesses.

The information in this article is to be used for informational purposes only. It should not be used in place of, or in conjunction with, professional medical advice. Anyone who has reason to believe that they, or someone they know, suffers from constipation should consult a licensed physician prior to beginning any treatment regimen and in order to receive a proper diagnosis and/or treatment.

Could Hypnosis Be Better For Your Health?

By , June 18, 2013 1:00 pm

Are you tired of hurting, feeling pain, and battling with health issues?

If so, you may be an excellent candidate for hypnosis.

The interesting thing is that the body is very powerful.

Are you tired of hurting, feeling pain, and battling with health issues?

If so, you may be an excellent candidate for hypnosis.

The interesting thing is that the body is very powerful.

For example, when we sleep, the body will begin to rejuvenate and heal itself during the deep stages. This is why when a person has insomnia, not being able to reach the deep stage of sleep; his or her body is tired the next day, which then manifests as headaches, joint pain, depression, irritability, and so on.

The benefit of hypnosis is multi-layered in that it can help you sleep better, thus allowing the body to work through health problems.

One of the keys in striving for better health is listening to your body while it is going through this healing process. With hypnosis, you will learn how to listen to suggestions while your body is in a deep relaxed state, providing an optimum environment for the immune system to work more efficiently.

Through positive suggestion and healing imagery, you have the advantage of taking a break from the stress caused by illness. The result is that you feel better, are not as tired, and certain illnesses improve.

Look at migraines, which for most people, can be debilitating. Sadly, millions of people suffer from migraine headaches at one level or another. Rather than pump the body full of chemicals in hopes of getting relief, you can use hypnosis.

With this, you would close your eyes and listen to suggestions immediately at the onset of a migraine. During this type of hypnotic session, you reach a powerful level of relaxation, which in turn lowers the blood pressure.

Since migraines are caused by blood vessels being constricted, when blood pressure is lowered, it is not trying to rush through small vessels. Best of all, hypnosis is an all-natural approach, easy to use and highly effective.

Just as with migraines, hypnosis is very beneficial for tension headaches. Although hypnosis can help in many ways, there are three specific reasons it works for this particular type of headache. First, hypnosis takes you into a deep state of relaxation, which again, helps to lower blood pressure and reduce pain. Second, stress hormones also begin to drop with hypnosis. Third, you will discover that levels of concentration and memory are greatly improved. Just imagine no more tension headaches simply with the use of hypnosis!

Hypnosis can also be helpful for a condition known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). In the past 10 years, tremendous research has been done on IBS, a condition in which people suffer from constipation and/or diarrhea, along with abdominal problems. Obviously, IBS can be disruptive to live, making work or school difficult. Now imagine that you work with a qualified and licensed hypnotherapist who can routinely provide you with positive suggestions to get relief from IBS. In truth, people who have gone this route for IBS have experienced up to 80% improvement.

Another area where hypnosis has proven to be highly successful is with teeth grinding. The medical term for teeth grinding is Bruxism, something that both children and adults do. In most cases, Bruxism does no harm but when done on a regular basis, it can cause severe damage to the teeth, as well as other problems such as painful jaws and headaches. Bruxism is often the result of anxiety or stress but can also be the result of missing teeth, crooked, teeth, or abnormal bite. The problem is that most people will grind their teeth while asleep. Therefore, hypnosis can break the habit of tensing up the jaw muscle, stopping the pattern that leads to Bruxism. Since hypnosis works with the subconscious mind, it can be used to reeducate the brain, teaching it to relax muscles. With this, you would have less grinding of the teeth and eliminate the other problems.

As you can see, hypnosis can make a huge difference when it comes to health. These examples are just a few but we wanted to show you the variety of areas in which hypnosis can help. The key is to work with a qualified hypnotherapist who understands the disciplines and principles associated with hypnosis. However, self-hypnosis can also be beneficial but it takes time to learn how to perform it properly. Even so, with the positive suggestions of hypnosis, you can overcome many health issues, leaving you with a long, fulfilled life.

Facts About Respirators

By , June 15, 2013 2:23 pm

586

First things first, respirators are primarily used to protect individuals – especially workers ?from any air contaminants especially if there are no other possible or practical methods available to control them.

First things first, respirators are primarily used to protect individuals – especially workers ?from any air contaminants especially if there are no other possible or practical methods available to control them.

It is important to know that respirators are only to be used when administrative or engineering controls are technically not feasible, when controls in engineering are currently being repaired or when there are any emergencies or situations that could not be immediately resolved.

Contaminants in the air that contribute as a hazard to one’s respiratory health include mists, dusts, gases, fumes as well as atmospheres that are deficient in oxygen.

One way to control such situations is by designing a well maintained ventilation system, appropriate use of equipments for processing, the substitution of materials that are less hazardous.

Also, well controlled administrative procedures that are properly in place help limit the possible exposure of workers in areas that are contaminated. Having work hours that are reduced help prevent further contamination. However, such measures may also prove to be limited since the actual hazards are not really removed. This is the reason why administrative measures to control contaminants are generally not favored because such methods are usually difficult to maintain and are a bit unreliable.

But first, it is best that employers possess a program that provides a description as well as procedures on how to select and operate a respiratory equipment. Such details should be part of a complete program on respiratory protection not just a respirator, since the latter is basically useless unless a valid program is in place.

Components of an authentic respiratory program include the following: assessment of exposure, a program for training, keeping records and inspection, appropriate respirator storage, surveillance of health, evaluation of the respirator program. Also, the operating standard procedures should also be available in writing.

Part of a comprehensive respiratory program are physicians that are able to examine the fitness ?both psychological and medical ?of the workers. This process should be completed prior to such workers being assigned to areas wherein the use of respirators are required. It is important that workers are fit physically while working, this while they are wearing respiratory gears.
Such equipments when worn should also be comfortable.

It is important that workers with sideburns that are long, or those who have beards or hair stubbles not wear any respiratory gears since such facial hairs could cause breakage on the seal in between the mask and the skin. Also, eyeglasses should also be avoided as this would also break the seal. This basically means that a leakage may occur on the mask therefore the necessary protection will most likely not be provided. A worker who happen to have acne or any scars on the face may make any mask worn to be not as good compared to one who have no skin problems.

There are basically two kinds of respirators. One is a respirator that purifies the air, while another is a respirator that is supplied with air.

The first basically removes any contaminants on the air that is breathed via its filtering of any dust, mists or metal fume particulates. There are also other air purifiers that absorb such particulates and trap these I canisters.

Meanwhile, the air respirators that are supplied clean the air using an air tank that is compressed.

All in all, respirators do well in keeping the air clean and breathable. The appropriate selection of such an equipment especially in hazardous areas that have unclean air is very important.
