    A Friend of mine went to a girls basketball game with his daughter one night a couple of weeks ago. While they were there, his daughter Nia was complaining of CRAMPING in her right GASTROCNEMIUS, it got so bad at one time her Dad (Scott) told her to point her toes upward to try and stop the CRAMPING. When she did, she had temporary PARALYSIS in her legs and fainted. He then took her home where she seemed to be fine for a while. After a while had passed she then went to get up to do something and fainted again. He then called the rescue squad who came and took VITAL SIGNS and with their DIAGNOSIS brought her to the Glens Falls Hospital Emergency Department to be assessed in the TRIAGE room. After several blood samples and ANGIOGRAPHY there PROGNOSIS was she was full of THROMPLIC OCCLUSIONS from her ABDOMIN CAVITY to her TOES. At that time the PHYSICIAN decided to send her by helicopter immediately to Albany Medical Center where they have a NEUROLOGY SPECIALTY GROUP. Once she was assessed in TRIAGE there they immediately ran a PHLEBOGRAPHY along with a DUPLEX ULTRASOUND, and lots of bloods samples that checked ERYTHROCYTES, HEMOGLOBIN, LUEKOCYTES, THROBOCYTES, LYMPHOCYTES MONOCYTES, NEUTROPHILS, among many other things. The SURUM is very important in a blood sample of this sort because it is used to find FRIBRINOGEN AND PROTHROMBIN which is CLOTTING PROTEINS. After the test where done they started her on an ANTICOACULANT to prevent any more clotting, and a DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS TREATMENT to break up the clots she had. After a few days the THROMBUS were gone and she was able to come home. She is still seeing SPECIALIST because they have not found out why this has happened. All they know is that it is a Factor #5…

    Medical Terminology

    Medical Terminology has a history in Latin and Greek languages. Many of the terms used back in the days are used today resulting in new medical concepts regarding disease, treatment and containment. Medical records were all written by hand, which allowed for books to be created. Many of the medical terminology terms that we use today is credited to Hippocrates, who is said to be the “father of medicine”, and Claudius Galen, one of the most well-known doctors in the Roman Empire. Medical Terminology was created to identify the numerous body structures, diagnoses, instruments, procedures, protocols and medications. It is arranged into three main parts: the word root, the prefix and the suffix. The word root is located in the middle and basically says what the word means or describes which body part. The prefix is found in front of word root and usually gives location of which organ it’s talking about. The suffix is found after the word root and determines the condition, process or procedure of the word. With these three concepts comes the combining vowel “o” which enables the word to flow smoothly in medical terms. The combining vowel is added to the word root before adding the suffix. For the most part the suffix will need that combining vowel added to the word root unless the suffix itself begins with a vowel. For example, subhepatic, to break down this word you must figure out the prefix which is sub and it means under or below. In this word there is no combining vowel because the suffix, which is ic, starts with a vowel. The suffix ic means pertaining to and the word root which is hepat means liver. So when we break down the prefix, word root and suffix we come up with the meaning of the word which means pertaining to below the…
