Healthcare Administration and Diabetes

as diabetes. Whatever one consumes is converted into sugar, and the human body uses up this sugar for energy. Under ordinary conditions, the pancreas secretes insulin, a hormone that facilitates blood sugar entry into the human body's cells. However, when the body cannot utilize insulin properly, glucose fails to move into body cells and remains in the person's blood. This condition is termed as insulin resistance. Sugar accumulation in an individual's blood results in pre-diabetes. This condition will develop into diabetes mellitus type 2 when sustained elevated levels of blood sugar remain in a person's blood. Furthermore, physically inactive… Continue Reading...

Bacteria and Viruses

takes place when bacteria, viruses or other microbes that cause disease enter the human body and start to proliferate. Disease comes about and ensues when the cells in the human body are damaged, as a result of the infection, and signs and symptoms of a disease appear. Causes Bacterial and viral infections are contaminations caused by bacteria and viruses. Bacteria release toxins into the blood stream whereas viruses damage body cells. Bacteria cause diseases such as strep throat, tuberculosis, and urinary tract infections. On the other hand, Viruses are liable for causing numerous diseases, encompassing AIDS, common cold, Ebola… Continue Reading...

Importance Of Vitamin C in Body

Vitamin C is not endogenously created in the human body, which is why it is essential that human beings receive enough Vitamin C in their diet. Diseases like scurvy can result from inadequate intake of Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid. Vitamin C performs a plethora of functions in the human body. It is an antioxidant, it is involved in protein metabolism, and is "required for the biosynthesis of collagen, L-carnitine, and certain neurotransmitters," (National Institutes of Health, 2016). Because of the role of collagen in wound healing, it can be said that… Continue Reading...

Education Autobiography on Drugs

of the various illegal substances like heroin and cocaine that are highly addictive and potentially lethal to the human body. However, because I have never used them nor know people that became addicted to these substances, it is something that has eluded me in regards to truly understanding the dangers of such drugs. Most of my friends rarely experimented with drugs, alcohol, or tobacco, except one. He was tall, dark haired, with light brown eyes and pale skin. He was the 'hook up' in school. He was the guy everyone knew had some kind of drug on him for… Continue Reading...

Main Systems Of Human Body

the heart's upper half are in charge of receiving blood from different parts of the human body. The right and left ventricles pump de-oxygenated and oxygenated blood, respectively; de-oxygenated blood is pumped to lungs while oxygenated blood is pumped to the remainder of the human body (smith, 2013). These 4 chambers are connected to one another by means of valves which control blood flow and make sure its movement is unidirectional. Blood vessels denote a sequence of elastic tubes which transport blood from and to the heart. Blood infused with oxygen exits the heart, supplying nutrients and oxygen by… Continue Reading...

Pacific Island and Aboriginal Art 1980

is more localized to the Polynesian triangle but throughout the Pacific region, the human body became a preferred medium to render artistic forms and cosmological patterns. This is evident as much in dance regalia as in tattoo. However, tattoo's portability makes it especially relevant for the seafaring and exploring nature of Polynesian society. Navigation also stressed the importance of art for depicting elements of the celestial world: the stars and directionality needed for successful seafaring. Masks captured the interweaving of the human and cosmological worlds throughout Oceania. For example, the Maori wooden masks conferred cosmological power onto the wearer.… Continue Reading...

Homeopathy

what is itemized on the label, or cultivate impartial measures that display effects of exceptionally dilute medications in the human body. Secondly, another point of controversy encompasses the fact that homeopathic treatments are exceedingly personalized and tailored. The implication of this is that there is no standard and unvarying benchmark for homeopathic practitioners. In particular, there are hundreds of dissimilar homeopathic medications, which can be prescribed in an assortment of diverse dilutions for numerous symptoms (NCCIH, 2017). In contrast, there are a number of positive remarks about homeopathy. One of the key positive aspects of homeopathy is that it… Continue Reading...

Immortal Life: the Body and Science

interview with Dr. Taylor, "a new and dramatic discovery about the human body" is now in our midst, though that discovery has been "politicized" in a way that throws a moral question over the research (Tippett, 2010). Dr. Taylor explains that a lot of fear in the public about the use of stem cells comes from the fact that most people think of aborted fetuses when they hear the word "stem cell". They imagine doctors as crazed scientists like Dr. Frankenstein, working furiously to play God in a laboratory without concern or care for the questions of ethics, morality… Continue Reading...

Robert Hayden Those Winter Sundays

black and blue mark or a bruise to describe the way the cold affects the human body (line 2). However, Hayden also uses the term blueblack specifically to hint at the possibility of physical abuse or domestic violence. The speaker of the poem does not overtly mention being beaten by the father, but the term "blueback" might imply violence as well as the speaker's "fearing the chronic angers of that house," (line 9). While Hayden would not be justifying domestic violence, the poet does aim to reveal its genesis in male psychology -- the conflict between the need to… Continue Reading...

Epicurus's Views on Death

together (Glannon, 1993; Warren, 2001). The atomist Epicurus would maintain that every atom or element of the human body, even the soul, just disperses back into its surrounding universe. This removes the potential of sense perceptions as one's soul is only able to access sense perceptions inside the body. It can only access sense organs via the body. This also accounts for why disembodied souls are incapable of emotional response. Thus, either way, death isn't painful. In certain matters, Epicurus's claim may be considered vague. A chief ambiguous element is his very definition of death. Supposing he means the… Continue Reading...

Laws on Rape, Murder, Aggravated Assault, and Robbery

crimes against person refer to those crimes that involve harm to the human body, threat to the human body, or actions that are done contrary to one's will. They can be classified into different types that include assault, aggravated assault, harassment, hate crimes, kidnapping, stalking, murder, domestic violence, and child abuse among others. Assault is committed when an individual tries or strikes another physically or acts in a way that threatens the life of another person. Aggravated assault occurs when an individual tries or causes severe injury to a person or causes severe injury using a deadly weapon. Battery… Continue Reading...

Violating Social Norms Essay

(2010), “The term personal space was introduced into the psychological literature to describe the zone around the human body that people feel is 'their space.. This is the absolute minimal normally acceptable distance to separate individuals in most common settings” (p. 81). The precise dimensions of an individual’s personal space vary according to age, culture, gender, and context of the setting, as well as other factors (Khan & Kamal, 2010). Explanation of hypothesis It was the hypothesis of this experiment that most if not all movie-goers would react in some fashion when a stranger sat down next to them… Continue Reading...

Aristotle and Plato on Aquinas’s View Of the Soul

and that death entail the separation of the body from the soul[footnoteRef:4]. Therefore, the human body ceases to exist while the human soul survives and keeps existing after death. Aquinas described the human soul as the substantial form and unique among the forms of material substances because it can survive in separation from the body, as it does after death and before resurrections. [3: Terrance, W. Klein. The Nature of the Soul: The Soul as Narrative. Routledge, 2016: 4.] [4: Kendall, A. Fisher, \"Thomas Aquinas on the Metaphysical Nature of the Soul and its Union with the Body,\" PhD diss.,… Continue Reading...

History Of Psychology Annotated Bibliography

human subconscious and unconscious, behaviorism was something different altogether. Behaviorism focused squarely on observable responses in the human body and behavior, and had little to do with emotions and nothing to do with dreams. Unlike other historians of psychology, Moore (2011) goes back to the late 19th century to the work of Wilhelm Wundt. A little-known figure in early psychology, Wundt’s experiments involved perception and sensation domains of the human experience. While it seems commonplace now to consider human perception, sensation, and cognition, these were revolutionary fields of inquiry at the time. Moore (2011) then broaches other luminaries in… Continue Reading...

Pathophysiology Of Gastric Acid Stimulation and Production

secreted into the lumen is the most acidic environment in the human body and is known as the secretory canaliculus (Schubert & Peura, 2008). The secretion of the gastric acid into the lumen occurs in response to a variety of messages from the paracrine, hormonal, and neurocrine inputs. Gastrin, produced by the G cells that are located in the pyloric mucosa of the stomach is the primary hormonal stimulation for gastric acid production. There are various inputs that will stimulate the parietal cells in order for them to secrete hydrogen ions that will flow into the gastric lumen, have… Continue Reading...

Electronic Waste

be e-waste. E-waste affects nearly every system in the human body mainly because they contain a plethora of toxic components like lead, calcium, mercury, barium, lithium, cadmium, polybrominated and flame retardants (Cucchiella, D’Adamo, Koh, & Rosa, 2015). Recycling of e-waste is still the answer to the e-waste problem, but recycling has to be carried out in a laid-out manner and not just anyone should be allowed to recycle e-waste. Recycling of e-waste is labor intensive and recycling employees need to be properly clothed to ensure that they are not exposed to the toxins when working. There are many toxins… Continue Reading...

Lack Of Oxygen in Space

Abstract The human body reacts in direct and indirect ways when it is bombarded with or deprived of certain things. Space is a good example of somewhere where both of those things can happen concurrently. Indeed, the radiation that is prevalent throughout space is one example. However, the general lack of oxygen is perhaps a bigger issue. Oxygen is one of the core parts of the water molecule. It is also a primary component of the air that humans breathe, along with nitrogen and a few other atoms types. Because… Continue Reading...

Advanced Practice Nurse Adaptive Response

The human body is capable of developing adaptive responses in order to deal with foreign invaders. The body has the capability of shaping itself in certain ways in order for it to respond to various attacks, body exhaustion, or body injury. This paper will analyze the adaptive responses that are seen as symptoms for various scenarios, In the first scenario, the two-year-old is experiencing a running temperature and a sore throat, which is diagnosed as a throat infection or tonsillitis. The second scenario… Continue Reading...

Genetically Modified Foods

anti-biotic resistant bacteria and other oddities of nature. More concerning, is the multi-faceted impact it can have on the human body and the complex and delicate human systems. For example, the viral DNA used in plants is not completely understood: “Most of the manipulated crops utilize the Cauliflower Mosaic Virus 35S promoter (CaMV35S) to switch on the introduced gene. There has been a lot of controversy concerning whether the highly infectious CaMV35S can be horizontally transferred and cause disease, carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, reactivation of dormant viruses andeven generation of new viruses” (Dona & Arvanitoyannis, 2008). Other concerns revolve around the… Continue Reading...

Nature Vs Nurture Essay

development structure. It seems like life and the way the human body works, the origins of human behavior, lie within the mixture of genetic and environmental. This makes sense considering the spectrum that is visible in all of life. From the range of emotions people feel to the varied processes happening within the human body, balance is needed to create stability in life. Humans require a mixture of influences to develop normally. Epigenetics seems to marry nature and nurture by determining that factors like environment, can cause change in phenotype while keeping the genotype the same. For example, many… Continue Reading...

Genetically Modified Organisms Gmo

(). These bacteria and viruses can cause harm to the human body in the form of sterility, allergic reactions, and deceased livestock. For example, one article noted that GMO corn may change the histological structure of living organisms if they consume it long-term. The animal they experimented on were two albino adult male rats. “Marked ultrastructural changes of some enterocytes with focal loss of the microvillous border were observed. Some enterocytes had vacuolated cytoplasm, swollen mitochondria with disrupted cristae and dilated rough endoplasmic reticulum. Some cells had dark irregular nuclei with abnormally clumped chromatin” (Ibrahim & Okasha, 2016, p.… Continue Reading...

William Gibson's Neuromancer on Technology and Humans

Cow’s Milk and Human Consumption

vitamin d has a host of adverse connections for the human body, including depression, fatigue, and other ailments (Ware, 2017). Cons Yet, the evidence against dairy milk is very damning. Sales of dairy milk have been declining in recent years, because more and more adults are refusing to drink milk. A glass of milk contains “…acidic animal protein that leeches calcium from the bones, pus cells, bovine growth hormone, feces, antibiotics, and a whole lot of unnecessary fat, cholesterol and calories — all of which create a terrible imbalance in the body” (Verma, 2014). More and more adults have been discovering… Continue Reading...

Body Mind and Soul in the Cancer Ward Wit

rather than the forest, is echoed in the doctor’s perspective upon the human body at the expense of the patient’s welfare. This perspective is in stark contrast with that of the compassionate nurse, who acts as a patient advocate. “Now is a time for, dare I say it, kindness. I thought being extremely smart would take care of it. But I see I have been found out,” reflects Bearin. Only the nurse and her human-centered perspective demonstrates the compassion Bearin requires. Although the nurse is not well-versed in the works of John Donne, she also has practical knowledge of… Continue Reading...

Eternal Life Paul S Ministry

cannot be affected by the trials endured by the human body. It is here where people can depend on to pull strength during difficult times. The reading states that through the examples of the jar and earthen vessel, it is meant to teach humanity to not lose heart, to not discourage (Gorman, 2017). People may be raptured because of belief in God. However, some may not, and it is faith in the Lord and faith in one’s self that will help guide the path of salvation. Paul had difficulties during his ministry because of harsh criticism and dissent among… Continue Reading...

Unhealthy Behavior Drinking Inadequate Water

were found to be 75% more likely to be dehydrated than the girls. (Valtin, 2002) 65 % of the human body is made up of water. This water helps in a number of biochemical reactions and physiological processes. These include: metabolism, blood circulation, waste removal, body temperature regulation and detoxification. (Valtin, 2002) Feeling thirsty is the first signal your body sends once it loses about 2% of its total water content. Therefore, thirst is one good indicator of what amount of water you need to drink to ensure the daily needs are met. (McLenan, 2000) It is however important to… Continue Reading...

How Modern Medicine Was Developed

ensure that physicians were allowed to focus on the anatomy of the human body without employing philosophy in order to diagnose a disease. Treatments are based on the processing, examination, and diagnosing of surgical specimens. Morgagni had a desire to understand the underlying anatomical lesions of the disease than any of his patients had suffered from. This is what led him to autopsies on bodies of patients. This was never done during the Galenic period because it was outlawed in the Greek law. However, Galen had made some attempts at dissecting animals especially pigs, which he believed had the… Continue Reading...

Intensive Care Unit Nursing Staff Job Stress and Burnout

comprises both psychic and organic changes that are of importance to the cognitive system. When confronted with stress, the human body automatically employs strategies in a bid to alleviate the damning effects of the situation. When these strategies fail, the result may be a burnout syndrome. This is basically the emotional exhaustion that comes as a result of physical exhaustion (Andolhe, Barbosa, Oliveira, Costa & Padilha, 2015). A person experiencing burnout normally has little or no emotional strength. He seems not to value the other persons he may be living with. The person also loses general interest in life,… Continue Reading...

Nursing Antibacterial Antimicrobial Antiviral Agents

Viral and Bacterial Infections Both viruses and bacteria are pathogens that can harm the human body. However, viruses and bacteria differ significantly on the molecular level, as well as how they are transmitted. Each pathogen has a different mode of transmission, with additional risk factors being patient vulnerability due to compromised immune system or genetic predisposition. Antiviral agents cannot kills bacteria and likewise, antibiotics cannot kill viral infections, making it important to differentiate between different types of infections. The goal of an antibacterial medication is to kill the bacteria or destroy its ability to synthesize proteins that enable it to… Continue Reading...

Lady Gaga Thinking Critically About Visuals

femininity is exaggerated and located in social constructions and clothing, rather than in anything real about the human body. She dresses herself like a work of performance art, and even her body language with her nails bared like claws suggests aggressiveness and an attempt to deliberately posture and position herself in a particular way. The image suggests there is nothing natural about Gaga or femininity   Continue Reading...

Fragmentation in the Health Care System

patients, as Lichtenfeld (2011) points out—namely that not all symptoms and irregularities need to be treated because no human body is perfect. 2 Alternative medicine or homeopathic approaches to healing are popular among certain people, and some health care professionals are even open to this concept of healing. They are distrustful of the pharmaceutical industry in general and feel that the industry has betrayed patients and helped to create the opioid epidemic currently sweeping across the nation. Some studies are out that indicate as much (Califf, Woodcock & Ostroff, 2016). However, there is not enough statistical data available to… Continue Reading...

Healthcare Nursing Patients Caring

Talk In a world in which scientific understandings of the human body and how to fix it have dominated healthcare discourse and healthcare practices, nurses and physicians are in danger of losing the meaning of their work. Healing is certainly dependent on evidence-based practice. Empirical research has helped nurses and other members of the healthcare team to be more effective for their patients, and more honest about healthcare outcomes. Yet in the pursuit of rigorous scientific knowledge and data-driven healthcare decisions, nurses must not lose the core of their identities and their patients’ needs. In his TED talk entitled “A… Continue Reading...

How Taenia Saginata Is Spread Ideal Diagnosis and Treatment

(Adams and DeVlieger DD.). The adult warm can remain in the host human body for as long as 25 to 30 years (Moren A. et al). Once in the host human body symptoms such as; nervousness, hunger pains, weight loss, insomnia and anorexia may be observed. In some cases tapeworm infection to humans are not easily determined since some symptoms fail to manifest and in other cases they manifest in minimal undetectable quantities. Other symptoms to some people include abdominal pains, upset stomach, digestive disturbances, weight loss and possible intestinal obstruction. The absolute and most visible symptom is the… Continue Reading...

Policy Implementation Dietary Guidelines

But the relationship of diet and cholesterol is much more complicated. After all, the human body naturally produces cholesterol. Individual responses can vary, as seen in studies of egg consumption in individuals, not all of whom exhibit the expected spike in cholesterol, even after excessive daily intake (Goldman, 2015). There is an indication of increased biosynthesis of cholesterol in overweight versus normal weight persons of cholesterol (Goldman, 2015). Weight, genetics, and other lifestyle factors thus can all impact cholesterol. Of course, given that professional medical researchers are still struggling to puzzle out the relationship between these different factors, it… Continue Reading...

The Characteristics and Attributes Of Biometrics

biometrics. The exempted technologies are those that might require some human body part to be extracted or technologies that might impair human body. · Reducibility: The data that has been captured ought to be reducible into some file which can be easily handled. · Tamper resistance and reliability: The attributes of the biometric should not allow for masking or manipulation. Biometric capturing process must be secure enough to become highly reliable and enable reproducibility (Sareen, 2014). · Privacy: Biometric capturing process must not violate people’s privacy. · Comparability: The biometric processes should have the ability to minimize the characteristics… Continue Reading...

Skepticism and Knowledge

commonsense approach in this case would, for instance, dwell on the complexity of the human body and the orderly nature of the universe, and thus conclude that there must be a Devine Creator/Supreme Designer. It is important to note that as per Locke’s epistemology, it is impossible for human beings to acquire unlimited knowledge. Knowledge is limited to the extent of what a person knows at a specific point in time. Even then, what we already know is largely subjective. This is more so the case given some human weaknesses such as memory loss and bias. For instance, frailties… Continue Reading...

Qi Gong Religion and China

He considered essence to be among the gems of the human body. The impact of Qi Gong movement in this context is enabling people in collecting the riches of harmony, essence, and their spirits (Szonyi 316). The Qi Gong movement helps people to find the correct state of mind that can propel them towards the feeling and ability to be in harmony. The movement also helps in guiding the lives of people to spiritual well-being. Qi Gong helps the heart to connect with the spirit. In so doing, a practitioner is able to refrain from desires of evil to… Continue Reading...

Johnson and Johnson Human Resource Value and Contribution

structure of an organization can be equated to the skeleton of a human body. If an organization has no structure, it ceases to exist. Three reasons explain why organization structure is important. First, organization structure gives shape to an organization hence it helps in improving efficiency of a business. Secondly, the organization structure describes the roles and functions of each worker. Clear definition of tasks in an organization reduces employee conflicts and boost organizational performance. Third, the organization structure clearly states the chain of command or hierarchy in any organization. So, it helps in lowering communication breakdown between managers… Continue Reading...

Radiation Control with Types and Effects

of paper. Thus, alpha radiation emitted from nuclear materials outside the human body do not pose any radiation risks. Nonetheless, if nuclear material producing alpha radiation get their way into the human body, they become a risk. Radon-222 is a good example of a nuclear material that goes through alpha decay to become polonium-218 (El-Shaer, 2015, p. 3). (b) Beta radiation (?): It is made up of charged particles ejected from the nucleus of atom and are physically same as electrons. These particles are negatively charged, are quite tiny, and can penetrate deeper compared to alpha particles. Beta radiation… Continue Reading...
