Radiation Exposure And Contamination

Ionizing radiation damages tissue in different ways, depending on the radiation dose, the duration of exposure, the type of radiation and the part of the body concerned. Symptoms can be local (eg. As burns) or systemically (eg. As acute radiation syndrome). The diagnosis is made by information on the history of exposure and the symptoms, but sometimes also by radiation detectors that are used to locate and identify Radionuklidbelasatung. Treatment…

Radiological Weapons

Reproduced in this article is the opinion of the author and not the official policy of the Department of Army, Department of Defense or the US Government. Ionizing radiation is discussed elsewhere in detail (radiation exposure and contamination: types of radiation). Mass injured by ionizing radiation may be caused by the detonation of a nuclear (cleavage) or a thermonuclear plant (Fusion), by the contamination of conventional explosives with radioactive material…

Purine Salvage Disorders

In addition to purine salvage disease, purine metabolism disorders (see also Table) including Purines are key components of cellular energy system (eg. B. ATP, NAD), the signal paths (z. B. GTP, cAMP, cGMP), and the pyrimidines of the RNA and DNA form. Purines are newly synthesized or recycled by ( “salvage pathway”) on a special pathway from the normal catabolism be “safe”. The final product of the complete catabolism of…

Purpura Senilis

Characteristic of senile purpura ecchymosis due to increased vascular fragility due to a connective tissue damage to skin, caused by chronic sun exposure, the age or drugs. Senile purpura typically occur in the elderly because their skin tissue atrophies and blood vessels are fragile. They develop persistent dark purple ecchymosis, which are usually located on the extensor surfaces of the hands and forearms. New lesions occur no apparent trauma and…

Purpura Simplex

(Light hematoma) Purpura simplex is characterized by an increased hematoma formation due to increased vascular fragility. Purpura simplex is extremely widespread. Its causes and mechanisms are not known. simplex purpura may be either the expression of a heterogeneous group of diseases or merely a normal variation without clinical significance. Purpura simplex is characterized by an increased hematoma formation due to increased vascular fragility. Purpura simplex is extremely widespread. Its causes…

Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

From pulmonary alveolar proteinosis is defined as the accumulation of surfactant in the alveoli. The etiology is almost always unknown. The symptoms consists in dyspnea, fatigue and malaise. The diagnosis is made based on the BAL, although typical radiological changes and lab results can be observed. Treatment is with a lavage of the entire lung or, in some cases, with recombinant granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factors. The five-year survival rate is about…

Pyoderma Gangrenosum

Pyoderma gangrenosum is a chronic, neutrophil, progressive skin necrosis of unknown etiology that often occurs in the context of a systemic disease. Pyoderma gangrenosum is a chronic, neutrophil, progressive skin necrosis of unknown etiology that often occurs in the context of a systemic disease. Etiology The etiology is unknown, but the pyoderma gangrenosum often associated with various systemic diseases, including vasculitis, gammopathy, rheumatoid arthritis, leukemia, lymphoma, Hepatitis C virus infections,…

Pulmonary Barotrauma

Barotrauma is a tissue injury caused the volume of gas in the body cavity to the factors that increase the risk for pulmonary barotrauma by a pressure-induced change in specific behaviors include (z. B. rapid ascent, breath holding, inhalation of compressed air), and pulmonary diseases (e.g., B . COPD). Pneumothorax and pneumomediastinum are common phenomena. Patients require neurological examination, and breast imaging. Pneumothorax is treated. Prevention includes reducing risky behaviors…
