... Study Case Study BPH (benign prostatic hypertension) and eventually TURP (transurethral pro ctomy) are difficult both physically and psychologically for men. There are many issues in their care as there was in the care of the patient in this case study. This was a 63 year old male who can seeking help for a frequency of urination and inability to empty his bladder. He often feels he has to urinate and can't and it has become more than he can deal with at this point. He is admitted to the hospital and has a TURP. This paper will discuss the condition of BPH and the resulting TURP as well as what these diagnosis and treatment mean to the patient. The impact of any problem with micturation is diffi...

... The elderly, together with women, children and persons with disabilities, are generally regarded as disadvantaged groups of the population, because each of them have particular health needs that are different from the other sub-groups. Health promotion is one of the ways by which these needs are addressed. It is defined as the method of enabling people to hold control over and improve health through education. Promotion of well-being includes health protection, prevention and education, and these three become increasingly important in developing countries where making the most out of available resources is necessary to fit the scarce supplies to the needs of the population. Despite knowing how to...

... Pathophysiology of Left Ventricular Failure Left Ventricular heart failure is mainly caused by ineffective left ventricular contractile function (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005, p. 182). When the ability of the left ventricle to pump is compromised, there is a decreased cardiac output. As a result, the blood that is supposed to be distributed to the body is backed up into the left atrium and then back into the lungs. Consequently, blood fills up the lungs and causes pulmonary congestion and dyspnea. If this condition persists, there will be pulmonary edema and eventually, right-sided heart failure (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005, p. 182). As was previously mentioned, patients who ha...

The reduction of risk depends on the factors such as number of hours of physical activity per week and various physical activities other than walking alone. It is normally suggested that an individual takes up 2.5hours/week of physical activity to reduce all-cause mortality risk. Answer 2: With the increase in volume of the vigorous/non-vigorous physical activity the all-cause mortality risks decreases. Thus there is an inverse linear dose – response relation between volume of physical activity and all-cause mortality rates in men and women. T...

It is the leading cause of death in this country accounting for 34% of all deaths in Australia in 2006 (National Heart Foundation of Australia, 2010). Hypertensive cardiovascular disease (HCVD), also called hypertensive heart disease, is a term applied generally to heart diseases that are cause by direct or indirect effects of uncontrolled and prolonged elevation of blood pressure (Riaz & Ahmed, 2010). High blood pressure increases the pressure in blood vessels making the heart work harder as it pumps against this pressure (Mikati, 2010). Ris...

However, there are cases when the artery walls are damaged because of trauma, genetically inherited conditions or even medical problems, resulting in a weakened artery wall that cannot withstand the blood pressure effectively. The force of blood pumped from the heart towards the arteries for supply to the entire body causes balloon-like swellings at the weakened areas, which is known as an aneurysm (National Institute of Health, 2011). An aneurysm usually balloons and may rupture as the forces increase, which would...

The importance of the immune system becomes apparent when it is absent; for instance, the devastating nature in AIDS occurs due to the lack of a formidable immune system allowing all manner of infections that would not arise in a healthy individual.
