Take time today to enjoy the world around you. Three portions of wholegrain or oat foods in your diet each day could slash blood pressure and dramatically reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke, according to a new study at Aberdeen University. Scientists tested 206 volunteers aged between 40 and 65; some were normal weight, others overweight and some obese. The amount of exercise each did varied but most had blood pressure levels considered borderline hypertensive.
The volunteers were asked to eat their normal diet, but to include either refined food such as white bread and rice, or three portions of whole-wheat products such as whole-wheat bread, or three portions of wheat and oat products such as porridge and whole-grain cereals. Over the following three months, the team found that the participants who added wholewheat, or wholewheat and oats, saw their blood pressure reduced significantly compared with those who stuck to the refined diet.
Post-operative renal failure is an important factor leading to increased morbidity and mortality. There are certain conditions and procedures that will predispose a patient to renal failure. The most important factor in preventing renal complications is to ensure adequate perfusion of the kidneys at all times. This means careful attention to fluid balance and the control of blood pressure.
Pain is a common post-operative complication associated with vascular ulcers and should be treated as rapidly as possible via Vascular Ulcers Treatment Melbourne. There are many ways to treat post-operative pain.
Droperidol is a butyrophenone used both for premedication and neurolept anaesthesia associated with Vascular Ulcers Treatment Melbourne. In excess it tends to produce parkinsonian extrapyramidal symptoms as well as hallucinations, loss of body image and restlessness.
Phenothiazines are a large group of compounds which include chlorproittazitte (Largactil), promethazine (Phenergan) and trimeprazire (iVallergan). Their action varies from drug to drug. but in general they produce neurolepsis with only mild to moderate sedation. They are also potent anti-emetics. They may interfere with the temperature regulating mechanism and are mild to marked alpha-adrenergic blocking agents.
They also show anticholinergic, anti-histamine and antiserotonin action. They produce minimal respiratory depression. In overdose they produce a parkinsonian-like syndrome. Vallergan, a member of this group, has become very popular for premedication in children as it is safe and often puts a child to sleep by the time he reaches the theatre. Phenergan is a useful premedicant in adults.
It is easier, however, to prevent a toxic response than to treat it. Therefore, it is essential not to inject more than the toxic dose. If large doses are required adrenaline should be added. Before injecting the operator must aspirate to ensure that the needle is not in a vessel.
