Decompression Illness - Hyperbaric Medicine Unit The unit's site provides information for SCUBA divers on decompression sickness, including first aid actions and contact information in the event of a diving emergency. http://www.hyperchamber.com/decompression_illness/
Extractions: 8 April, 2004 Decompression Illness To many people, the terms 'decompression sickness' (DCS), 'decompression illness' (DCI) and 'the bends' are synonymous. However, although there should be no difference in the immediate treatment of anyone suffering from these conditions, the terms do not necessarily mean the same. Decompression Illness (DCI) is an umbrella term for both decompression sickness (DCS) and Cerebral Arterial Gas Embolism (CAGE). As stated by Boyle's Law, ascending from a hyperbaric environment towards the surface results in an increase in the volume of a fixed amount of gas, including those found in the body. In the case of oxygen, the body quickly reabsorbs the extra volume as the cells use it up. Carbon dioxide, a waste product of metabolism, is excreted through the lungs very efficiently and therefore does not present a problem when decompressing. The body does not use nitrogen, however, which forms almost 79% of the air. For the purposes of discussing decompression, it is an 'inert' gas. Unless enough time is allowed for it to be excreted through the lungs, any collection within the body's tissues can increase in volume to the point where bubbles are formed. These can lead to the formation of emboli (singular: embolus) that cause adverse physiological effects by impeding blood flow, damaging tissues or nerves. It should be noted that the presence of inert gas bubbles does not in itself lead to problems - what is important is the eventual size of these bubbles, their location, and the ability (or inability) of the body to rid itself of them before they cause damage.
Emergency Treatment Of The Headache Patient A guide for physicians and health care professionals written by Merle L. Diamond, M.D., Associate Director, Diamond Headache Clinic Internal medicine Department, Columbus Hospital, Chicago, Illinois. http://www.usdoctor.com/sym2.htm
Extractions: RETURN TO TOP OF PAGE Headache is a frequent presenting complaint in the emergency department. The occurrence of headache as the chief complaint on admission is between 0.36% to 2.5% of patients. The incidence of headache with significant morbid or fatal outcome is not frequent. Determining differential diagnosis of the patient presenting with headache is essential in order to rule-out organic disease. Appropriate treatment regimens can be instituted once diagnosis has been established. In the Emergency Department (ED), relief of acute pain must usually be addressed. Referring the patient for follow-up care and preventing repeat ED visits and possible narcotic habituation are recurrent problems for the emergency physician. BACKGROUND INFORMATION Between 4.5% to 20% of headache patients visiting the ED will be suffering from vascular headaches. Referral for follow-up is essential in order to prevent frequent repeat visits to the emergency department and dependence on habituating analgesics. At the ED, tension-type (muscle contraction) headache is the most prevalent diagnosis among these headache patients. Narcotic analgesics must be avoided in these patients.

Extractions: TB A stroke is caused by the abrupt loss of blood supply to a part of the brain (ischemia). In some cases, stroke is caused by bleeding into brain tissue (hemorrhage). Stroke also can mean a dramatic change in a persons ability to live a normal life: it can lead to paralysis, loss of speech, memory, vision, diminished reasoning - and sometimes even death. Stroke affects 730,000 Americans each year including 150,000 deaths and is the leading cause of adult disability. When a stroke takes place, there is a brief window of opportunity in which to save injured brain. To minimize disability, it is critical that stroke victims are evaluated and treated quickly.
