Pressure Sores

Unit 64 1.1 Pressure sores are the result of a constant deficiency of blood to the tissues over bony areas such as a heel. It may have been in contact with a bed over a long period of time.

Effect of Atmospheric Pressure on the Enviroment

EFFECT OF ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE ON THE ENVIROMENT THE BIOSPHERE Variations in atmospheric pressure can present special problems for the respiratory systems of animals because atmospheric pressure affects the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide that occurs during animal respiration. Normal atmospheric pressure at sea level is the total pressure that a column of air above the surface of the Earth exerts (760 millimetres of mercury, or 1 atmosphere)...
