Congestive Heart Failure NS2: Aging 7 Long-term Care October 26, 2003 Congestive Heart Failure Congestive heart failure is a condition in which a weakened heart cannot pump enough blood to body organs resulting in the blood to backing up into body tissues. It is the most common cause of disability in the elderly. “More than 75 percent of patients with congestive heart failure are over the age of 65 years” (Porth, 2004, p. 337). The New York Heart Association classifies CHF into four categories.

Mass Media Literature Review Mass Media and the Effects on Public Perspective Over the past century, mass media has evolved from informational for the public to a monopolistic situation where the public has lost its say in what is aired. Back in early 1900s, newspapers had entertainment, news, information, and public views which in turn earned the public’s interest. As interest grew, of course the companies did as well. At the turn of the century, the U.S. labor movement published hundreds of ne
The Historical Importance of Laura Bassi In a time when it was considered an impressive accomplishment for a woman to have an education, Laura Bassi earned a doctorate and became a university professor1. She worked with unrelenting determination to achieve her goals and be treated as an equal in her field. Bassi, who was born on October 20th 1711, did not try to impress or fit in with any particular group. She managed to raise 12 children in addition to her professional duties2. She is an import
Introduction to Islam Allah (God) Islam is the complete submission and obedience to Allah (God). The name Allah (God) in Islam never refers to Muhammad (pbuh), as many Christians may think; Allah is the personal name of God. What do Muslims believe about Allah? 1. He is the one God, Who has no partner. 2. Nothing is like Him. He is the Creator, not created, nor a part of His creation. 3. He is All-Powerful, absolutely Just. 4. There is no other entity in the entire universe worthy of worship bes
Cerebrum Human Anatomy 3B March 8th, 2004 The cerebrum is the largest part of the brain. Also, it is the most visible part. It also dominates the adult brain. Most of it is in processing somatic sensory and motor information. Two types of matter are located in the cerebrum. Gray matter is a substance known as the cerebral cortex. It is located in the cerebral nuclei. White matter is deep in the neural cortex and by the cerebral nuclei. Gray matter is the part of the brain that is responsible for
Comparative Anatomy Most people are have encountered the phrase “You are what you eat!”? This statement may be more accurate then one might initially think. Mammals are most often grouped as carnivore, herbivore and sometimes omnivore. These classifications are based on the diet and manner in which an individual obtains food. Carnivores generally eat other carnivores, while herbivores commonly eat herbs, also termed as plants or vegetation. Hence, in a way, you are what you eat. Although carnivo
“Hoppy” Heart Homework Assignment P-2 Class 17 EMSM 250 5/19/03 The human heart is a hollow, cone shaped organ that is relatively the size of a person’s fist. The apex of the heart is tilted obliquely and pointed towards the left hip and it rests on the diaphragm at approximately at the level of the fifth intercostal space, which is about the nipple line (Marieb 309). The heart weighs around 300 grams (10 oz.) in an adult. The heart is near the middle of the thoracic cavity in the mediastinum, w
Homo Erectus February 6, 2003 4TH Hour Homo erectus, which means ‘upright man’ , existed between 1.8 and 300,000 years ago. Due to Homo erectus’ posture and large brain it is regarded as the first fully human group. Homo erectus persisted for well over a million years and was the first hominid known to have migrated off the African continent into Asia, Indonesia, and Europe. Characteristics of Homo erectus are a large brain capacity ( 800  1300 cc), a large face and thick skull, heavy teeth, br
Physiological Adaptations of the Plesiosaur for ‘Holding its Breath’ One hundred and fifty million years ago, large aquatic species of reptile such as the Plesiosaur dominated the ocean, and were pre-eminent predators of the sea. The branch of now extinct Plesiosaurs, or ‘near lizards’, evolved into variant closely related species specialised to take different niches in the food chain. Such species of Plesiosaur include the phenotypically similar Plesiosauroid and Pliosauroid. The physiological

They do this by working with micro organisms and cells that th
Investigating the Properties of the Enzyme Catalase Introduction The discovery of enzymes occurred accidentally in the late nineteenth century. The German chemist Eduard Buchnar had been attempting to harvest fluid derived from yeast extracts, to his exasperation the fluid extracts taken kept decaying. With the knowledge sugar acts as a preservative of fruit, Buchnar introduced sugar to his liquid extracts in the hope the sugar would preserve the yeast extracts. To his astonishment the yeast flu
Insects There are more than 750,000 different insects, making up almost three-quarters of the animal species. Insects are considered the most successful group in the whole animal kingdom.[1] Most of their success is based on the characteristic structure that they share with all other arthropods. There are three characteristics that include: exoskeletons, segmented bodies, and jointed appendages. Another reason why insects are so successful is because most insects are small and therefore have ada
Spanking Spanking, defined as slapping of the buttocks, is a form of hitting and thus of physical violence. That fact alone should make the spanking of children unacceptable by the same standards that protect adults, who are not as vulnerable. However, there is more to spanking than simply hitting: spanking also trespasses on one of the body’s most private and sexual areas—the buttocks. To fully address the wrongness of spanking children, therefore, we must consider not only the issue of physica
Nuclear Medicine Technology Eng101 Nuclear Medicine is a profession developed as a product of the atomic age. Nuclear Medicine Technology is one of the most advanced diagnostic technologies in today’s medical field. The discipline of nuclear medicine began after radium was discovered almost a century ago. Following World War II, physicians recognized the potential medical implications of radium and developed artificial radio nuclides. Since this development the field of nuclear medicine has beco
Brave New World Could you imagine living in a time where everything you knew was perfect. The weather, the animals, and your perception of yourself are all perfect. The world in which you know is controlled by an almighty being, you know nothing but what you are told. This is the world of Adam and Eve living in the Garden of Eden at the very beginning of human beings existence. However this reality all came to a crashing end when Eve and Adam decided to take a bite from the apple off the tree of
Delirious New York A Retroactive Manifesto for Manhattan Rem Koolhaas\' Manifesto defines phantom architecture. He creates a blueprint and describes components of this remarkable development. Phantom architecture is an infinite accumulation of layers consisting of theories, projects, and past and present experiences of a space. They are ideals and syntheses of new worlds and lives, hovering among and enwrapping “architectural mutations, utopian fragments, irrational phenomena”, breathing life in
Rembrandt van Rijn 2/28/04 What would you think of an artist that painted two thousand three hundred paintings in sixty three years? I would say that’s pretty amazing. Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was regarded by many as the greatest painter, in the 1600’s and in Dutch art in general. Rembrandt had a very original, but interesting way of bringing out the main characters in a painting. He had a good family back round. He spent most of his life in Leiden and Amsterdam painting. He was a man of

Serial Killers Prior to discussing what serial killers do, we must identify and pinpoint what a serial killer is. We generally tend to attribute the same name for serial killers and mass murderers. This is incorrect because they are two independent and different types of killers. While both of these individuals may kill many people, the difference lies in the reason they kill and the period over which they kill their victims. An event or a build up of circumstance triggers mass murderers and cau
Predator/Prey Relationships The relationship between predators and their prey is an intricate and complicated relationship; covering a great area of scientific knowledge. This paper will examine the different relationships between predator and prey; focusing on the symbiotic relations between organisms, the wide range of defense mechanisms that are utilized by various examples of prey, and the influence between predators and prey concerning evolution and population structure. Symbiosis is the in
Orangutans What’s so special about an orangutan? Their eyes hold a story that is mysterious and yet intuitively we relate to them. Just one look into those eyes and you are hooked. The orangutan’s anatomy, geographic range and habitat type, food habits, behaviors, and locomotor patterns make the species unique while sharing some features with other primates. However, currently Indonesia is facing a threat to its orangutan population. Loss of habitat, illegal hunting, and the notorious pet trade
Microwave Ovens My topic of this paper is going to be microwaves and the effects that they have had on technology in the past and in today. My proof of this is the technology existing right now using microwaves. Such as: satellites, microwave ovens, radar, radio, and television. The microwave and the discovery of microwaves ushered in a new for us. A example of microwaves helping us would be Courtney’s example, “When cooked for the correct amount of time meats and veggies prepared in a microwave
Archaeopteryx and Modern Birds As promised, here are the derived characters with which Gauthier (in his 1986 paper) unites Archaeopteryx with modern birds, outside of all other theropods (with Gauthier\'s original clarifiers in parens) [and with my editorial comments in brackets]: Premaxillae elongate, narrow, and more pointed anteriorly, with longer nasal processes [similar condition in bullatosaurs, and in the nondinosaurian Megalancosaurus, but unique to Archie and later birds in Maniraptora]
The Affects of the Holocaust The Holocaust was a tragic point in history which many people believe never happened. Others who survived it thought it should never have been. Not only did this affect the people who lived through it, it also affected everyone who was connected to those fortunate individuals who survived. The survivors were lucky to have made it but there are times when their memories and flashbacks have made them wish they were the ones who died instead of living with the horrible

SNAKES Justin Keith Mr. Curtwright Biology Keith 1 Have you ever wondered exactly what a snake is? Snakes are elongated, limbless reptiles that have often appeared in art and mythology. Scientists have currently discovered an estimated 2,500-3,000 living species of snakes living throughout the world except in the arctic regions. There is one exception to the old world viper, which has been found as far north as Scandinavia (60° North Latitude). The size variation of snakes ranges from slender bl

Sensory Receptors Whether we realize it or not, sensory receptors play a big part in our everyday life. Without the ability to sense our outside surroundings, we would quickly be put at a disadvantage to those around us. It is often taken for granted, but every facet of life depends on the ability to sense things. From the time when we first hear our alarm clock in the morning, to getting our balance once we get out of bed, then having to see the way to get to the bathroom, and even being able t
Serial Killers Serial killers have been active since the 15th century, yet we are still mesmerized by them. They have and will continue to shock and sicken us to the core of our being, yet they are treated as legends. We, the public, have a very perverse relationship with them and their evil deeds. Books and movies made regarding their atrocities make millions, yet they are still punished and some are put to death. Does this mean that there is a dark side to us all and we are using the active se
Leonardo Da Vinci Leonardo Da Vinci is one of the greatest and most ingenious men that history has produced. His contributions in the areas of art, science, and humanity are still among the most important that a single man has put forth, definitely making his a life worth knowing. Da Vinci, born on April 15, 1452, is credited as a master painter, sculptor, architect, musician, engineer, and scientist. He was born a child to Catherina, a peasant girl. His father was Ser Piero da Vinci, a public n

Gerontology Gerontology is the study of old age, stressing the social and behavioral looks of aging. Although aging is a lifelong process and changes in its effects on individual people, old age has been generally stated as beginning at the age of 65. Since 1920 the number of people living to old age in society has increased greatly, (Encarta). Students completing the Minor in Gerontology or the Gerontology Certificate program use their background to work wither directly in the field of aging or
Revolutions History\'s revolutions have taken on a distinct shape. Crane Brinton points out this particular pattern inherent to national revolutions in his book Anatomy of a Revolution. Brinton uses a wheel to describe the common cycle that most revolutions share. Brinton claims that the starting block of most revolutions is the societal problems brought forth by the "Old Regime". Brinton continues his cycle with the isolated and spontaneous events of dissatisfaction that mark the overthrow of t
The Cardiovascular Field The Cardiovascular field is a high-tech medical field where technologists and nurses assist cardiologists diagnose and treat heart disease. Within cardiovascular technology there are two specialties - invasive and noninvasive. Invasive cardiovascular technologists assist cardiologists and surgeons in such surgical areas as cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, pacemaker insertion, and open heart surgery. Cardiac catheterization is where small catheters are inserted throu
LEONARDO DE VINCI name 3/10/99 Early life in Florence Leonardo was born on April 15, 1952, in the small Tuscan town of Vinci, near Florence. He was the son of a wealthy Florentine notary and a peasant woman. In the mid-1460\'s the family settled in Florence, where Leonardo was given the best education that Florence, the intellectual and artistic center of Italy, could offer. He rapidly advanced socially and intellectually. He was handsome, persuasive in conversation, and a fine musician and impr
Leonardo Da Vinci In an age of exploration, Leonardo was the boldest explorer of all. As Cooper writes, while his fellow countryman Christopher Columbus was discovering America, Leonardo in a sense was discovering the world (3). Leonardo had one of the greatest minds of the Renaissance. His inventions were ahead of his time. His art set the standard for later Renaissance artists. Most impressive is his variety of talents and achievements. He mastered all his subjects of study. He is the symbol o
Descartes Descartes was a "jack of all trades", making major contributions to the areas of anatomy, cognitive science, optics, mathematics and philosophy. Underlying his methodology is the belief that all science is based on mathematics. This is manifested in his unification of ancient geometry and his new alegbra based on the Cartesian coodinate system. For Descartes, certainty in philosphy and in mathematics is gained through understanding. We may know that two apples and two apples makes four
Auschwitz In the concentration camp Auschwitz there was a lot of medical experimentation going on. One of the major horrors would have to be Block 10. Block 10 was the medical experimentation block in Auschwitz which was filled with German doctors. Block 10 would have been a even balance of horrors. When being an experimental subject it could prolong someone’s life or it could terminate it immediately. Some of the test you might under go would have to be skin testing for reaction to relatively b
Greek and Roman Architecture 1. Both Greek and Roman architecture differed in style. Greek sculptures were mainly statues that represented heroes of that era. They were used to portray the architect\'s views of the person or place being recreated. When reconstructing the Parthenon, three column styles were used: ionic, Corinthian, and Doric. Greeks also used paint to add a finishing touch to some sculptures. Although some Roman architecture was based on the same style as the Greek models, Romans

ABORTION: TO BE OR NOT TO BE - THAT IS THE QUESTION STATISTICS: About 1.5 million American women have abortions each year. But many common assumptions about who these women are don\'t always stand up to scrutiny. Women who work are just as likely to have an abortion as those who do not work. Age - Teenagers are having abortions at a slightly lower rate than they were in 1987. Women ages 18 to 24, who make up 21% of the childbearing population, have 44% of all abortions.

Physical Therapy I would like to pursue the field of physical therapy. Physical Therapy, by definition, is the treatment of disease through physical means, including light, heat, sound waves, electricity, magnetic field and exercise. Physical Therapy is divided into three broad categories: acute care, neuro-rehab, and outpatient physical therapy. Acute care consists of treating patients in the in-patient, or hospital setting. Patients in the hospital setting are often acutely ill. Patients may r
Evolution In this essay I will talk about the theory of evolution. The term evolution means a gradual change over time. There are two types of evolution. The first is geologic evolution, which is the very slow change of the earth over a long period of time. The second is organic evolution, which is the slow process by which species change over a long period of time. The fossil record is basically the history of life based on fossils found. A fossil is the remains of an organism that lived at an
