  1. Decubitus

    Commonly used in medicine, the word decubitus is used to mean lying down . It is derived from the Latin verb decumbere meaning to lie down . When medical professionals use this term to describe the position of a patient, they first state the part of the body on which the patient is resting followed by the word decubitus . For example, the right Human Anatomical Terms Anatomical directions lateral decubitus would mean that the patient is lying on his or her right side. Another example is angina decubitus, chest pain while lying down , ref http jg 65975list.html Quia Directional Terms and Body Positions ref In radiology , this term implies that the patient is lying down with the X ray being taken parallel to the horizon. ref Indiana University http RadWeb Portals 0 ContentFiles RadSci Training R103 2003 20R103 20Unit 20III 20Positioning 20Terms.ppt powerpoint presentation on positioning terms ref See also Decubitus ulcers References references med stub Category Latin medical phrases Category Article Feedback 5 es Dec bito fr D cubitus it Decubito ...   more details

  1. Queckenstedt's maneuver

    Queckenstedt s maneuver is an outdated clinical test, formerly used for diagnosing spinal stenosis . The test is performed by placing the patient in the lateral decubitus position, thereafter the clinician performs a lumbar puncture . The opening pressure is measured. Then, the clinician s assistant compresses both jugular veins if increased intracranial pressure is not suspected then one may exert pressure on both external jugular veins but usually pressure is first exerted on the abdomen, this pressure causes an engorgement of spinal veins and in turn rapidly increases CSF pressure , which leads to a rise in the intracranial pressure . Given normal anatomy, the intracranial pressure will be reflected as a rapidly rising pressure measured from the lumbar needle, within 10 12 seconds. If there is a stenosis in the spine, there will be a damped, delayed response in the lumbar pressure, thus a positive Queckenstedt s maneuver. Nowadays this test has been made mostly superfluous by superior imaging modalities like MRI and Computed tomography CAT . ref cite journal last Pearce first JMS author authorlink coauthors date year 2006 month June day title Queckenstedt s manoeuvre journal J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry volume 77 series issue 6 page 728 pages 728 publisher location issn pmid 16705195 pmc 2077443 doi 10.1136 jnnp.2005.083618 bibcode oclc id url language format accessdate laysummary laysource laydate quote ref The test is named after Hans Heinrich Georg Queckenstedt who described it in 1916. ref Queckenstedt HHG.

It is sometimes abbreviated to AXR, or kidneys, ureters, and bladder KUB for kidneys , ureters , and urinary bladder . Diagnostic Tool The abdominal x ray is a test that can be carried out quickly and easily in an emergency department. The test can help diagnose some abdominal conditions. It is not a useful investigation for most abdominal conditions. Small and large bowel obstructions, volvulus and malrotations can be diagnosed by AXR. Renal, urethral and bladder stones can sometimes be identified on plain x ray, although it is usual now to use CT as a first line investigation to confirm clinical suspicion. Gallstones are sometimes noted on x ray, although ultrasound is the more usual imaging modality used when clinically suspected. Plain abdominal radiography is not usually helpful in diagnosis of appendicitis. Technical Parameters An abdominal x ray is usually taken with the patient lying in a supine position . Other views include upright, decubitus, lateral, and prone. Coverage on the x ray should include from the top of the Liver or Thoracic diaphragm diaphragm to the pubic symphysis . The abdominal organs included on the xray are the liver , spleen , stomach , intestines , pancreas , kidneys , and urinary bladder bladder . Pathology In an acute setting the abdominal x ray is used to diagnose Bowel obstruction Bowel perforation although this is more commonly diagnosed by a Chest x ray Pancreatitis Does not diagnose pancreatitis and is usually normal in pancreatitis Kidney stones or Gall stones Further tests are used to confirm these diagnoses and abdominal x ray is not the investigation of choice Faecal impaction although this should be diagnosed by history taking and clinical examination commons Category X rays of ...   more details

  1. One in a Million: A Memoir

    One in a Million A Memoir ref George, Helen. A life well lived, a story well told One in a Million, Pocono Record, December 13, 2001 ref is the autobiography of Mary G. Clark of Old Forge, Pennsylvania, a medical pioneer who turned the dream of healing into a multimillion dollar firm. The book was ghostwritten by Jeff Widmer The Spirit of Swiftwater and published in 2001 by the University of Scranton Press . One in a Million chronicles Clark s life as she struggled through poverty and abuse. The daughter of a miner, she faced sickness, fire, divorce, and venture capitalists to take her company from a garage in coal country to the Nasdaq. A registered nurse and licensed physicians assistant, Clark pioneered techniques of wound healing and nutritional counseling during a time when smoking and diet pills were the norm. She served the famous and the infamous, including Joe Kopechne, father of Mary Jo Kopechne. Dermasciences, the company she founded and took public, marketed a product she invented called Dermagran, a skin salve used to treat decubitus ulcers, or bedsores. In the book Clark attributes part of her success to the blessing of the caudal veil, a talisman thought to convey mysterious powers.

    File Concha nasalis.gif thumb A X ray computed tomography CT scan showing evidence of the nasal cycle. The more patent airway is on the right the swollen turbinates congesting the left. The nasal cycle is the alternating congestion and decongestion of the nasal cavity nasal cavities in humans. It is a physiological congestion of the nasal concha due to selective activation of one half of the autonomic nervous system by the hypothalamus . It should not be confused with Pathology pathological nasal congestion . The nasal cycle was first described by the German physician Richard Kayser in 1895. ref Richard Kayser Die exakte Messung der Luftdurchg ngigkeit der Nase. Arch. Laryng. Rhinol. Berl. 8, 101 1895 ref Description In 1927 Heetderks ref Cummings Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery, 4th ed ref spoke about the alternating turgescence of the inferior turbinates in 80 of a normal population. The turbinates in one Fossa anatomy fossa filled up while the opposite turbinates decongested. This cycle, which is controlled by the autonomic nervous system as described above, had a mean duration of two and a half hours. He further observed and documented that the turbinates in the dependent nasal fossa filled when the patient was in the Decubitus lateral decubitus lying down position. Some postulate that this alternating positional obstruction has the purpose of causing a person to turn from one side to the other while sleeping. The nasal cycle is an alternating one, with the total resistance in the nose remaining constant. In patients with a fixed deviated septum septal deviation and intermittent nasal obstruction, the interplay of the nasal cycle becomes evident the sensation of obstruction frequently mirrors the congestion phase. The nasal cycle s value becomes evident when one considers that the function of the nose is to warm, humidify, and filter nasally inspired air. These humidifying and filtering functions are dependent on the presence of moist respiratory epithelium, ...   more details

Individuals with gastric outlet obstruction will often have recurrent vomiting of food that has accumulated in the stomach, but which cannot pass into the duodenum small intestine due to the obstruction. The stomach often dilates to accommodate food intake and secretions. Causes of gastric outlet obstruction include both benign causes such as peptic ulcer disease affecting the area around the pylorus , as well as malignant causes, such as gastric cancer. Treatment of the condition depends upon the underlying cause it can involve endoscopy endoscopic therapies such as dilation of the obstruction with balloons or the placement of self expandable metallic stent s , other medical therapies, or surgery to resolve the obstruction. Symptoms Projectile vomiting, which may also occur with an Epidural Hematoma or meningitis, constipation, loss of weight,sometimes epigastric pain. Causes The causes are divided into benign or malignant. Projectile vomiting may also occur with an Epidural Hematoma. Benign Peptic ulcer disease.
