Prime Theory

by Laurentiu Mihaescu

That’s it! No more mysteries! The deepest secrets of physical nature are now completely revealed!Did you ever wonder how everything came into existence? What is matter made of? What are, in fact, space and time, and why do elementary particles interact? And the one I like most: what is gravity and how does it exert its force throughout the Universe? Look no further: all the answers to these "big" questions are right here, put as simply as possible. No more hiding behind formulas and theories only a few can understand: now the naked truth comes in simple words that can easily describe our complex reality. This original, fascinating, paradigm-shifting theory unifies all of nature's fundamental forces into a single interaction, whose mechanics is based on space granularity - the only intrin...

Depression, Drugs and Somatic Diseases

by Sics Editore

Depression is a common disorder related to other psychiatric and somatic diseases, and it often complicates the diagnosis and treatment. According to various studies 20–60% of patients with general medical conditions have symptoms of depression and 15–45% fulfil the criteria of a mood disorder. Remember somatic diseases that may cause depression (table ). Rule out possible drugs and narcotic substances that may cause mood disorders (table ). The role of somatic differential diagnosis is especially emphasized: in elderly patients with no previous mood disorders in patients with atypical symptoms of depression in patients who do not benefit from traditional treatment of depression In a patient with somatic disease it is not always easy to differentiate the somatic symptoms from those of ...

Management of Adverse Effects of Radiotherapy

by Sics Editore

Radiotherapy is a local treatment modality and therefore the side effects are almost invariably local. Typical adverse effects are caused by a damage to the reproductive cells. Skin reactions comprise redness and dry or moist epithelitis. Other symptoms include mucosal injuries, fibrosis, cataract, radiation pneumonitis, and after extensive radiotherapy also leuco- and thrombocytopenia. Growth disturbances in the bone and cartilage tissues are seen in growing children in the areas that have received radiation doses large enough to destroy tumours. Mental development may be retarded especially in small children if the radiation is directed into the area of the head and brains.

The Universe

by Laurentiu Mihaescu

In my first book, 'Prime Theory', I gave a full explanation over space, time, matter and all of nature's fundamental forces. As this theory has considerably shifted the paradigm of modern physics, new laws are to be written and some of the old ones would have to be reformulated. The principles of relativity, which no longer assure an accurate description of the physical world, will now have to change. My new book, 'The Universe', is about how the absoluteness and relativeness are born from the granular dynamics and how they actually work together, at any scale and at any moment, to describe reality and to build a truly unified theory of everything....

Acute Porphyria

by Sics Editore

Acute intermittent porphyria, porphyria variegata, and to a lesser degree hereditary coproporphyria can cause acute symptoms: abdominal pains and general symptoms. The symptoms begin after puberty, most often between the ages of 20 and 40 years. Symptoms may be triggered by certain drugs (barbiturates, sulphonamides, oestrogen, chloroquine; a complete list of unsafe and safe drugs can be seen at www.porphyria-europe.com ) alcohol, menstruation, infection, or fasting. All precipitating factors should be eliminated during acute symptoms. Porphyrias are inherited dominantly and autosomally. When a new case is found, family members should be examined to find symptomless patients.Acute porphyrias are associated with a significantly increased risk of liver cancer . If a porphyria patient over 50...

Dilated Cardiomyopathy

by Sics Editore

Asymptomatic dilated cardiomyopathy may first manifest itself as an enlarged heart shadow on a chest x-ray or an abnormal ECG finding. If previously undiagnosed heart failure or left ventricular dilatation is noted, the patient must undergo echocardiography. Typical symptoms in the early stages include dyspnoea on exertion, arrhythmias and chest pain that is not related to exercise. As the disease progresses, the patient will develop heart failure and associated oedema. Pharmacological therapy is similar to that used in heart failure of any aetiology; ACE inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers are the drugs of choice. The identification of atrial fibrillation and initiation of anticoagulation is important in order to prevent cardiogenic embolism. If no obvious cause is identified for...

What is the diagnosis: the pathophysiology and underlying cause of the anaemia?

Substance Abuse During Pregnancy

by Sics Editore

Patients often try to conceal or understate their alcohol and illicit drug use; this also applies to mothers attending antenatal clinics. Questions about substance abuse should be direct in the attempt to create an open and confidential atmosphere. A pregnancy in a woman with substance abuse problems is always a high-risk pregnancy, and these women should be referred to a specialist substance abuse antenatal clinic as early as possible. Appropriate substance abuse treatment for a pregnant woman should be initiated without delay and with her consent....

Electrical Cardioversion

by Sics Editore

The principal indications for elective cardioversion are persistent atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter. Elective cardioversion is used very rarely in other types of arrhythmia since immediate rhythm management is usually indicated. When the arrhythmia causes such haemodynamic instability that a transfer of the patient to a hospital cannot be considered safe, and pharmacological management is not an option, cardioversion should be carried out without delay, even if the patient is not receiving therapeutic anticoagulation or has just eaten.

Increased Blood Creatinine Concentration, eGFR and Renal Function Tests

by Sics Editore

The principal renal function tests are plasma creatinine concentration, estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) calculated from the creatinine concentration result and urinalysis. Impaired filtration rate with or without proteinuria and/or haematuria is suggestive of renal disease. If eGFR is over 60 ml/minute, no further investigations or follow-up are needed, unless other signs suggestive of renal disease are present (haematuria, proteinuria, microalbuminuria in a diabetic patient).

Sweating may be excessive but will stop especially when dehydration develops. Measure the rectal temperature to distinguish between heatstroke and less severe heat illnesses (in heatstroke rectal temperature is usually over 39°C.) Axillary or ear temperature are not informative when examining a patient with a suspected heat illness. In heatstroke the first aid is cooling, which must be started without delay.
