The article “Rate of temperature increase in human muscle during 1MHz and 3MHz continuous
ultrasound” was based on a study where twenty-four college students were used to see the
effectiveness of ultrasound for tissue temperature rise. The students had thermistors
inserted into their left mediceps surae muscle belly, to measure the tissue temperature at
different frequencies and intensities. Twelve students were used to measure tissue
temperature at 1MHz and the other twelve were used for 3MHz. All were lying prone and
participated in four applications of the ultrasounds at different intensities: .5,1.0,1.5.
and 2.0 w/cm2 each for ten minutes.

The study proved that ultrasound is effective in heating tissues and that stronger
intensities may have to be used to heat deeper tissues.

  • A Journey with Breast Cancer
    A Journey with Breast Cancer A Journey with Breast Cancer What is Cancer? The body is made up of many types of cells. Normally, cells grow and divide to produce more cells only when the body needs them. This is an orderly process which keeps the body healthy. Sometimes cells keep dividing when new cells are not needed. They may form a mass of extra tissue called a growth or tumor. Benign tumors are not a threat to life but malignant tumors are cancer. Cells in these tumors can invade and damage
  • Korea
    Korea There are many things to consider when characterizing a country. It’s geographic region, population, political status and foreign relations are all distinguishing marks that make up a country. Those features however, are not what make a country unique. The people of a country give that place it’s identity and it’s spirit, they are the physical representation of the place. The people exhibit their country everyday without even meaning to through their customs, values, traditions, and attitu

    Disorders DEFINITION Osteogenisis imperfecta (OI) is “a rare genetic disorder of collagen synthesis associated with broad spectrum of musculoskeletal problems, most notably bowing and fractures of the extremities, muscle weakness, ligamentous laxity, and spinal deformities.” (Binder, 386). Other collagen-containing extraskeletal tissues, such as the sclerae, the teeth, and the heart valves are also affected to a variable degree. OI has a “common feature of bony fragility associated with defectiv

  • Downs Syndrome
    Downs Syndrome Down\'s Syndrome Down\'s syndrome is a genetic condition involving an extra chromosome, this change occurs around the time of conception. A person with Down\'s syndrome has forty-seven chromosomes instead of the usual forty-six. A relatively common genetic disorder, Down\'s strikes 1 out of 600 babies. In 95 percent of all cases, the disorder originates with the egg, not the sperm, and the only known risk factor is advanced maternal age-at age 35, a woman has 1 chance in 117 of ha
  • BLUNT TRAUMA IN PREGNANCY
    BLUNT TRAUMA IN PREGNANCY BLUNT TRAUMA IN PREGNANCY AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS Trauma affects 6-7% of pregnancies in the U.S. 60 - 67% related to automobile accidents. Fetal mortality after maternal blunt trauma is 34 - 38%. The two major causes of fetal death after maternal blunt trauma are: Maternal shock/death, and placental abruption. The pregnant trauma patient presents a unique challenge because care must be provided for two patients, the mother and the fetus. It is vital that the nurse know and
  • Ultrasound ? Quick Project
    Ultrasound ? Quick Project Ultrasound - Quick Project Ultrasounds are sound waves with frequency beyond the human limits, therefore humans are unable to hear them. It even travels at exactly the same speed as sound in any medium. Humans can hear sound within the frequency range of about 20 to 20,000 Hz, so any sound above 20 kHz is ultrasound. Ultrasound or ultrasonography is a medical imaging technique that uses high frequency sound waves and their echoes. The technique is similar to the echolo
  • Becoming an obstetrician
    Becoming an obstetrician An obstetrician/gynecologist is a physician specialist who provides medical and surgical care to women and has specific skill in pregnancy, childbirth, and disorders of the reproductive system. This includes preventative care, prenatal care, detection of sexually transmitted diseases, Pap test screening, and family planning. An obstetrician/gynecologist, commonly abbreviated as OB/GYN, can serve as a primary physician and often serve as consultants to other physicians. O
