How to Prevent Hair Loss After Chemotherapy|permanent hair loss from chemotheropy Chemotherapy is a drug treatment that kills fast growing cancer cells. Unfortunately, chemotherapy also kills normal fast growing cells such as those that contribute to hair growth. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy can lose hair all over their bodies, but it is often most distressing for patients to lose the hair on their heads. Preventing hair loss after chemotherapy was impossible in the past, but an innovative technique called scalp hypothermia has led to impressive results for cancer patients who are fearful of losing their hair to chemotherapy. Scalp hypothermia involves wearing a tight fitting cap made of silicon gel or rubber that is cooled to -22 degrees F (-30 degrees C) and used during chemotherapy treatments. The temperature of the cap causes the blood vessels in the scalp to constrict reducing the amount of chemotherapy drugs that can attack the hair follicles. The following are steps cancer patients on chemotherapy can take to prevent hair loss using scalp hypothermia

The lymphatic system is made up of lymph capillaries, vessels, and nodes, the spleen, thymus, tonsils, Peyer’s Patches, and lymphocytes (white blood cells). Red bone marrow is also a part of the lymphatic system. We have hundreds of lymph nodes. Lymph nodes can be found all around the lungs and heart, in the gut, in the armpits and groin, and pretty much all over the body. Blood pressure causes plasma liquid to leak into tissues, and this pressure causes excess fluid in those tissues to move into the lymph capillaries. As this fluid leaves the cells, it takes cellular waste products and used proteins with it. The lymphatic capillaries pick up approximately 20% of the fluid that was delivered to the interstitial space. The venous system picks up about 80% of the fluid in the interstitial space. The unique structure of the lymphatic capillaries permits interstitial fluid to flow into them but not out. Blood pressure, temperature, activity of muscle and joints, diaphragmatic breathing, and pulsation of adjacent arteries all cause lymph to move up to the subclavian veins at the base of the neck. Valves and pressure keep lymph moving in the right direction. Along the way, the fluid is interrupted by lymph nodes that filter dust, cancer cells, pathogens, and other unwanted matter. Lymph nodes also produce lymphocytes (white blood cells). The spleen, tonsils, and red bone marrow help produce lymphocytes as well. The spleen, which is about the size of our fist, is the largest lymphatic organ. It is similar in structure to a lymph node, but it filters blood, not lymph. The spleen contains two main types of tissue, white pulp and red pulp. White pulp is lymphatic tissue containing white blood cells – B and T cells. T cells attack pathogens (such as bacteria and viruses) while B cells make antibodies that fight infections. Red pulp tissue removes old and damaged red blood cells and stores platelets. It also produces red blood cells in unborn babies and when certain disease

How to diabetes and cardiovascular disease Heart disease is an umbrella term that covers a variety of cardiovascular conditions, including blood vessel diseases, coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, congenital heart defects and infections of the heart.[1] Although heart disease is a serious condition, there are some simple steps that you can take to lower your risk of developing heart disease, such as eating a heart healthy diet, staying active, managing stress, and quitting smoking. Some factors are beyond control, but you can help to protect yourself from heart disease by taking charge of the factors that you can control. 1 Lose weight if you are overweight. Carrying extra weight puts a strain on your heart which can cause heart disease later in life. You are at an even higher risk if you carry excess weight around your waist. Strive to maintain a healthy weight to avoid complications of being overweight now or later in life.[13] Check your BMI using the American Heart Association's BMI calculator 2 Exercise for 30 minutes five days per week. Getting 30 minutes of moderate physical activity five days per week will help you to protect yourself from heart disease. Developing good exercise habits from a young age and maintaining those habits for your lifetime will improve your chances of staying in shape and reaping the benefits of exercise for your heart.[14] Aim for five 30 minute moderate exercise sessions five days per week, but keep in mind that you can divide these sessions into smaller ones throughout the day. For example, you could exercise for 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes at night, or do three 10 minute sessions spread throughout the day. As an alternative, you can do 25 minutes of vigorous activity three days per week and some kind of moderate to high intensity muscle training twice per week. 3 Manage stress. Stress causes damage to your arteries which may lead to heart disease, so it is important to develop techniques for managing stress.[15

How to Clean a medications to hold before cardiac cath|cardiac Catheterization Site Cardiac catheterization is a common medical procedure which enables your doctor to examine your heart. A small tube is inserted through a blood vessel in your leg or arm and moved through your body until it reaches your heart. The catheter may be used to check the blood pressure in your heart, put contrast dye into your heart to facilitate taking X-rays, take blood samples, biopsy your heart, or check for structural problems with the chambers or valves. Because it is an invasive procedure, minimizing infection risk before and after the procedure is very important 1 Avoid people who are sick. If you are sick, even with a minor illness like a cold or flu, this burdens your immune system and makes it easier for you to develop complications. If you wake up the morning of your procedure with a fever, cough, drippy nose, or any other symptoms, notify your doctor immediately.[12] Wash your hands after you shake hands with people and before you eat. This will reduce the likelihood that you expose yourself to pathogens carried by others. Don’t go near, hug, or shake hands with people who have the flu or a cold. Avoid being in small confined spaces with lots of people. These are excellent opportunities for pathogen exchange. This may mean not taking public transportation such as the bus or subway. 2 Boost your immune system by managing stress. Stress causes hormonal and physiological changes in your body which, over time, can weaken your immune system. By easing stress and anxiety before the procedure, you can help ensure that your immune system will remain strong. You can reduce stress by: Learning as much as possible about your procedure. Your doctor and the hospital can provide you with information. Many hospitals even have booklets of information that they provide and make freely available online. Ask your doctor or hospital if such information is available. If so, it will help you under

How to Find the Cause of Aortic Regurgitation|bicuspid aortic valve chest pain Aortic regurgitation is when there is damage to the aortic valve, causing blood to leak backwards from the aorta (the body's largest blood vessel) back into the heart after each heartbeat. There are a number of things that can cause aortic regurgitation, including infection, trauma, rheumatic heart disease, aneurysm, and congenital and hereditary causes. The main way to determine the cause of aortic regurgitation is through cardiac imaging. Other medical tests may also be ordered to confirm the underlying cause of aortic regurgitation as well as assess overall cardiac health. 1 Receive a transthoracic echocardiogram. A transthoracic echocardiogram (commonly called an "echo") is usually the first specific investigation to look at the function of the aortic valve. It uses ultrasound waves to create an image of the heart as it functions in real time. It shows each heartbeat, and can assess blood flow through the various chambers of the heart with each heartbeat.[8] An echo can also be used to determine the underlying cause of aortic regurgitation. 2 Have a transesophageal echocardiogram. If a transthoracic echocardiogram is insufficient to determine the underlying cause of aortic regurgitation, the next step is to proceed to a transesophageal echocardiogram. This is when, rather than having the test performed from outside your chest, an ultrasound probe is instead inserted down your esophagus to provide a more close-up and detailed view of your heart, 3 Obtain other diagnostic tests as needed. Depending upon what is suspected as the underlying cause of aortic regurgitation, additional investigations may be ordered to provide more information. For instance, if an infection of the heart valve is suspected, blood tests and a blood culture will likely be ordered to test for the presence of bacteria. If trauma is suspected, a chest x-ray or CT scan will likely be needed to evaluate for injury

How to Identify thoracic abdominal aneurysm|Aortic Dissection Symptoms An aortic dissection is a tear in the inner layer of your aorta (the biggest blood vessel in your body). Blood then pours through the tear, splitting (aka "dissecting") the inner and middle layers of your aorta. To identify an aortic dissection, it is key to characterize the nature of your chest pain, including its onset and intensity as well as where it radiates to (such as radiating to your back). It is also key to look out for associated symptoms that may go alongside an aortic dissection. If you suspect that you are having an aortic dissection, go to the Emergency Room immediately, and call 911 if you need an ambulance to bring you there. Receiving prompt diagnosis and treatment is essential and may in fact save your life. 1 Look out for sudden, intense chest pain.[1] Sudden intense chest pain can occur in a number of serious medical conditions, including heart attacks, certain acute lung problems, and also in aortic dissection. If you are experiencing severe chest pain, go to your local Emergency Room immediately. It may be a sign of an aortic dissection, which is a life-threatening condition that needs immediate emergency medical attention. Even if it is not an aortic dissection, severe chest pain may be another medical emergency (such as a heart attack or a blood clot in your lung, among other things) so it is key to receive professional medical attention immediately. Ask a friend or family member to drive you straight to the Emergency Room, or call 911 to have an ambulance bring you there. 2 Watch for chest pain that radiates to your back.[2] One of the "red flag" (key) symptoms that leads doctors to suspect an aortic dissection is if your chest pain radiates through to your back. It is most often felt as an intense "ripping" sensation, and frequently correlates to aortic dissection. However, imaging tests will need to be done to confirm the diagnosis of aortic dissection. Aortic dissec

How to Know if Left Arm Pain Is Heart Related|slight discomfort in chest Pain in the left arm can be due to many conditions, ranging from run of the mill muscle pain to a severe heart attack. Abnormalities of the skin, soft tissue, nerves, bones, joints and blood vessels of the arm can all cause pain. There are a number of factors to consider in order to determine whether your left arm pain is heart-related or not. 1 Note the duration. If your left arm pain has a very short duration (seconds) it is very unlikely to be caused by the heart. Along the same lines, if the pain has persisted for a long time (for days or even weeks), it is also unlikely to be heart-related. If it lasts in the realm of a few minutes to a few hours, however, it may be a heart attack. If your pain is recurring in short intervals, take note of all the durations and intensities of the pain on a piece of paper to bring to your doctor. This could also be heart-related and warrants prompt medical attention. When the pain is released or accentuated by movement of the thorax (mid-spine region), it is probably due to a spinal degenerative disc disease, especially in older patients. This type of pain is unlikely to be caused by the heart. Similarly, when the pain appears after a vigorous exercise with your arms, it is probably muscular in origin. Look at your daily patterns. What seems to aggravate it 2 Consider that your left arm pain could relate to angina. Angina is a pain that occurs when there is insufficient blood flow to the heart.[9] Angina is often a squeezing or pressure sensation; you may feel pain in your shoulders, your chest, your arms, your back, or your neck. It may also resemble the feeling of indigestion.[10] Although it is atypical for angina to appear only in the left arm, it is possible. Angina is usually worsened or provoked with stress - either physical stress (such as exertion, like after climbing a flight of stairs), or emotional stress (such as after a heated conversation

How to Lower abnormally slow heart rate Naturally|slow heart rate condition A normal heart rate is anywhere between 60 and 100 beats per minute in adults.[1] If you have noticed that your heart rate is high, or if your doctor has told you so, you may be worried. Although human heart rates have some natural variation, an abnormally high heart rate can lead to many serious health conditions, including a stroke, a heart attack, or lung disease. If your heart rate is higher than is healthy, there are some things you can do to lower it naturally. 1 Eat foods high in magnesium to support enzymes. Magnesium is one of the most essential minerals to maintaining heart health. It plays an active role in the functioning of over 350 enzymes in your body, which support the functioning of heart muscle and the relaxing of blood vessels. Talk to your doctor about the right amount of magnesium for you (too much can lower your heart rate to dangerous levels). Foods rich in magnesium include: Green leafy vegetables such as spinach Whole grains Nuts (such as almonds, walnuts, and cashews) 2 Get adequate amounts of potassium in your diet. Potassium has a significant role to play in your health as it is essential for the proper functioning of all cells, tissues, and organs in the body. Among these roles, potassium impacts your heart rate, and increasing your intake of it can lower your heart rate. Talk to your doctor about the right amount of potassium for you, since too much may slow your heart rate to a dangerous level. Foods rich in potassium include: Meats (beef, pork, chicken) Some fish (salmon, cod, flounder) Most fruits and vegetables Legumes (beans and lentils) Dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt, etc.) 3 Include calcium in your diet to maintain heart health. Calcium, an electrolyte like potassium and magnesium, is essential for heart health.[14] Your heartbeat’s strength depends very much on the calcium in the heart muscles’ cells. Therefore, to have your heart muscles .

How to Prevent Cardiovascular Disease|american heart association The term cardiovascular disease refers to range of disorders of the heart and blood vessels, usually caused by restrictions to blood flow in arteries. Heart attack, stroke, and other results of cardiovascular disease (like Peripheral Arterial Disease or PAD) are among the most prevalent causes of death worldwide. There are 26.6 million people diagnosed with heart disease in the US and about 600,000 that die from it each year, making heart disease the number one cause of death in the US[1]. About 735,000 people in the US have heart attacks each year (killing about 120,000) and about 795,000 people have a stroke every year (killing about 129,000 people a year)[2]. PAD also affects 8 to 12 million people in the US[3]. Thanks to increased medical knowledge, however, assessing your risks, living a healthier lifestyle, and working with your medical provider offer the best defense against suffering from the effects of cardiovascular disease.

Herban Planet made intergalactic history by launching one pound of marijuana flower, “Space Weed Bro”, 35 KM above the Earth’s surface into space. The space vessel, a clear cube containing the duly-named “Space Weed Bro,” was attached to a weather balloon with GPS tracking and was retrieved after descending back down to the Arizona desert. Recovery was quite the adventure as it could only be calculated approximately where it would land. The entire event was documented from various angles using cameras attached to the vessel as well as drones and an on-the-ground video crew. The craft attained an altitude of approximately 118,000 feet where the temperature was -94º below zero! As it returned to earth, it reached a velocity of over 240 mph!
