The administration of medication on patients is one of the most sensitive responsibilities of the nurses. As much as 44,000 – 98,000 Americans die due to adverse drug reactions caused by medical administration errors. A total of 426 medication-related malpractice cases were submitted to the court against the registered nurses who administer wrong medications to the patients in the United States.
The main problem and actuality of this theme are prostate cancer, that affects African-American males within the United States in a disproportionate number compared to White males. African-American males are 1.7 times more likely to develop and 2-3 times more likely to die from prostate cancer than White males. Numerous reasons for this disparity exist: socioeconomic status, distrust, conflicting cultural beliefs etc.
Further symptoms include fatigue; sleep disorders, trouble with cognitive performance, headaches and migraines, hyper-reaction to environmental conditions and irritable bowel syndrome (“Fibromyalgia Fact Sheet”, n.d).

common representative of Chlamydia genus is Chlamydia trachomatis which can cause Chlamydia infection – an infectious disease that is transmitted through sex. It is one of the most common sexually transmitted disease. Infection with chlamydia usually transfers through sex,
Method: Food was evaluated for the presence of common food poisoning bacteria by convectional bacterial culture methods Total bacterial counts to determine (CFU/ul) and detection of different bacteria were done using both selective and non-selective media and
However, many members such as Enterobacter, Shigella, Citrobacter etc. are also known to cause harmful diseases as well.
A 12 year old boy is admitted in the ER. In the morning the boy had bought a ham-tuna
line Phosphatase is an example of such enzymes and function to cleave the phosphate molecule from the organic compounds such as nucleic acids and phospholipids. This paper aimed at measuring the amount of active enzyme in the soil samples by applying chromogenic substrate assay.
According to the paper nursing informatics) has been defined as a blend of computer science, information science and nursing science, aimed to achieve the management and processing of nursing data, information and knowledge to support and enhance the practice of nursing and provision of nursing care. The hybrid of nursing and computer science helps to develop more efficient health care processes by three ways: streamlining documentation and communication, providing decision support tools and contributing to patient safety.
ng DNA such that information on the genetic material is now different from the initial natural information before the genetic modification (Miles, Ueland & Frewer, 2005). It can practically be explained by suggesting that a gene from another organism is introduced into the
Lignin and polysaccharide are resistant to human digestive enzymes and are not absorbed in the intestinal tract. Lima beans have the highest percentage of fiber whereas fruits such as apples and strawberries have the
This is by quick inference from the total weight of the bases. It though, has different restriction sites for each of the enzymes. This implies a mutation in the base sequence, most likely a deletion.
-there are more bands due to the increased number of restriction
The article highlighted the fact that syphilis was so terrible that its diagnosis itself was considered as a death sentence.
The article elaborated that syphilis infection onset with a painless chancre, the first or a localized
At the same time, other bacteria have been revived after millions of years fossilized tree sap. The microorganism in quite a number of times develops to establish an infection in the human body (Langford, Lunn, & Panter-Brick, 2011).

Medics have resigned to inclining to only a few bacterial pathogens such as Acinetobacter that proves beyond the measure of their capability to resist the bacteria. This has in essence been a great force in medicine as it is significantly positive. These pathogens have
At this stage, the infected persons experience inflammation and severe swelling of the bowel due to the infected colon. One of the key causal factors of Clostridium difficile infection is antibiotic therapy. The infection normally
Water is an essential constituent of life. In fact, human beings cannot do without water. Water is a biological, physical, and chemical component that bears a huge influence on life as it is known on Earth. Hence, researchers from diverse fields have sought to come up with ways to manipulate water in order to achieve certain aims that are beneficial to life.
The parasite is minute and causes disease known as cryptosporidiosis (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2013). The parasite and disease are nicknamed as “Crypto” (CDC, 2013). Many species of this parasite affect both human
brief overview of the existing microbiological means of energy production and creating a persuasive argument for furthering the research and funding into alternative fossil fuels, the following analysis will serve as leverage to this end.
Firstly, one of the oldest forms of
The article talks of ensuring students have access to information texts. I believe this will serve a critical role in ensuring students develop ideas and facts through access to various pieces of information. Exposing students to various forms of facts will help them make credible arguments will reliable facts.
The research explores the phenomenon with the aim of acquiring the exact statistical value representing the pathogenic distribution. Micrococcus spp. regard as gram positive, oxidase-positive and aerobic cocci
AIDS is an incurable disease, but there are several treatment options that can help to control symptoms of AIDS. Nowadays AIDS is the most serious and quite spread all over the world disease of immune system. Global statistic shows
The understanding of the immunological pathways can help in the discovery of new immunological factors, which in turn will help in developing new drugs.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease or inflammatory skin disease caused by the hyperproliferation of keratinocytes.
It also acquired other companies increasing the footprint and knowledge hence becoming a renowned brand with solutions for farmer such as herbicides, insecticides and resistant seeds. In the year 1996 for
According to the paper any mishandling or error during processing and packaging of these foods can tremendously affect the health of the customers. Further, the risk of microbiological attack during processing of these packaged food increases if they do not pass through specific requirements required at steps from processing to packaging. Storage of these foods even after packaging requires special attention in order to minimize microbial activities.
