“Normal” breathing means different things for different children. One child breathes quietly, while another makes noise with each breath. A child at rest takes slow, deep breaths, while a running child breathes quickly. Given the range of normal, it can be difficult to tell when breathing is abnormal.
You will hear several terms used to describe “abnormal breathing.” Labored breathing refers to rapid, often shallow breathing associated with increased effort to take each breath. Respiratory distress is an exaggerated form of labored breathing that is associated with not getting enough oxygen into the body.
Wheezing is a sound heard on exhalation, a high-pitched whistle. It may be associated with labored breathing or respiratory distress, or it may not. The easiest way to understand why breathing may be labored to understand the path that air follows from the nose and mouth down to the lungs. Read the rest of this entry »
Areas affected by Squamous Carcinoma
This type of carcinoma affects or occurs in multiple organs for example the skin, lips, mouth, esophagus, Urinary bladder, prostate, lungs, vagina and the cervix. This condition is characterized by the malignant tumor of squamous epithelium. Epithelium shows squamous cell differentiation.
Squamous cell carcinoma can be classified into seven carcinoma and these include; adenoid squamous cell carcinoma or pseudo glandular squamous cell carcinoma, basal squamous cell carcinoma , clear cell squamous carcinoma / clear cell squamous cell of the skin, keratoacanthoma, signet ring cell squamous carcinoma, spindle cell squamous carcinoma sand finally verrucous carcinoma.
The Grades of Squamous Carcinoma
The categorization of a carcinoma depends on whether the cancer invades underlying tissue only since invasive cancers are able to spread to other organs and use metastasis.
Bowen’s disease is sunlight induced skin disease and is normally considered an early form of squamous. Kerato cell carcinoma is a low grade deformity of the skin originating from pito-sebaceous glands, it 1contains keratin plug.
Marjolins’s ulcer is a type of squamous cell carcinoma arising from a non healing ulcers or even a burn wound.
For more than two years, 37-year-old Kellie couldn’t get out of bed. Her muscles ached and would spasm so often that she was essentially paralyzed. She also had severe dystonia, episodes when her muscles would contract and cramp, rendering her entire body painfully twisted for hours ar a time.
“My muscles would turn to stone; my whole body was like a rock,” she said. At least twice a month she had to seek help from the hospital emergency room where she would receive intravenous muscle relaxants for up to 24 hours before she could move.
Kellie needed help taking care of her three young children; she couldn’t walk and rarely left the house. She decided to try deep brain stimulation (DBS), a surgical treatment for Parkinson’s disease. DBS surgery involves inserting a thin wire into the brain; the wire is attached to a computerized pulse generator (similar to a heart pacemaker).
“I had no options,” she said. “I knew I wouldn’t be like before I had Parkinson’s, but if I wanted half a life back, I knew I had to have surgery.” Read the rest of this entry »
While by no means a comprehensive list, the following tips may help you avoid certain common pitfalls encountered by many caregivers.

Once you hear a croup cough, you will never forget it. The cough is harsh and dry, sudden and dramatic — often described as sounding like a barking seal. However, some children with croup have congestion, a runny nose, or even a wet cough. The hallmark of croup is that, wet or dry, the cough is harsh.
Inexplicably, croup almost always begins as the sun goes down and gets worse through the night. By the time the sun comes up the next morning, it is usually getting better.
Its duration varies, sometimes lasting one night, sometimes five. It tends to be at its worst on the second night. Occasionally, the cough continues through the daytime, predicting a rough night to come.
If you think your child is in respiratory distress, is not breathing, or is struggling to breathe, call 911 and start CPR immediately.
Sometimes moisturized air can make breathing more comfortable. You can try using steam (such as a steamy bathroom) or cool mist (such as a vaporizer). Try this only when the breathing difficulty is mild, in conjunction with other treatments, and on the advice of your doctor.
If an irritant has triggered the breathing difficulty, remove the irritant. If you are indoors, go outside. A cigarette smoker can trigger an asthma attack in a bystander just by wearing a sweater or shirt saturated with smoke. Cats shed large amounts of dander, so even if a cat is removed from the room, the dander lingering on the carpet can cause the irritation to continue.
The best way to manage an allergy is to remove the offending agent. If you know what your child is sensitive to, this should be easy. But often you have no idea. In such circumstances, you can begin by trying to minimize exposure to the most common allergens. Here are some good initial steps.
- Vacuum your child’s room daily or every other day (if it has carpeting) to reduce the number of dust mites.
- Try running an air purifier such as a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter in the corner of your child’s room to pick up additional dust mites and dander.
- If there is a flowering tree outside one of your windows, try to keep that window closed to minimize pollen entry into the house. Read the rest of this entry »

The diabetes normally is a result of a high level of glucose in the blood system because there is no enough insulin in the body, or because the body itself is not responding to the insulin in a better way. The insulin in the body is used to break down glucose so that it can be used by the body as energy.
When a woman is pregnant, she develops different hormones that block the insulin so that the baby can get enough glucose for his growth. If the body has enough glucose, the insulin has to be increased so that there will be enough to reduce the level of glucose.
If the body cannot develop enough insulin for the glucose already in the blood, the gestational diabetes begins to develop. After giving birth, the level of glucose in the blood becomes normal. However if the high level of blood glucose continue to be high, then it means that the woman had diabetes which was yet to be diagnosed or she was prone to the diabetes and diabetes took the chances of developing during the pregnancy.

Melatonin is quite possibly the most amazing new substance available to the general public. An explosion of research on this molecule in the past decade has shown it to have a multitude of effects in animals and humans, even in plants and one-celled organisms.
It may be one of the oldest molecules that exist in living creatures, having been found in every plant and animal searched to date. And whether it is found in a one-celled algae or a human being, the melatonin molecule seems to have the exact same structure, a phenomenon rarely seen in nature.
In humans, melatonin is produced in a tiny structure deep in the middle of the brain called the pineal gland, which releases the hormone into the blood primarily at night (some five to ten times as much of it is released during the night as during the day).
Light turns out to be the critical factor; when daylight strikes our eyes, it conveys a message to the brain which blocks the production and release of melatonin. On the other hand, it takes sufficient amounts of exposure to light in the daytime to “prime” the pineal gland to produce melatonin at night. Read the rest of this entry »

Whether they are at home on the couch or in a recliner watching television, driving to or from work, sitting at a computer or sitting at their desk, people spend a lot of time sitting.
This has a lot of negative impacts on health, as humans were not designed to be sitting down almost all of the time.
