Other supportive measures include administration of oxygen and artificial respiration if necessary discount 30mg vytorin with mastercard. Antihistaminic drugs are not able to counteract the hypotension and brochospasm characteristic of anaphylactic shock generic vytorin 20mg on line. Antihistaminc Drugs These drugs competitively block histamine receptors and are of two types: 1. H2 receptor antagonists (used in the treatment of acid-peptic disease) H1 Receptor Antagonists Classification of H1 recepror antagonists: 1. Other Effects: are independent of the antihistaminic effects and vary widely according to the drug used. Anti-motion sickness effects are exhibited by promethazine, diphenhydramine, and dimenhydinate. Some have central antimuscarinic actions which is useful in the treatment of Parkinsonism. Pharmacokinetics: They are well-absorbed following oral and parenteral administration. And are mainly metabolized by the liver; degradation products are removed in the urine. Allergic Disorders:-Including urticaria, seasonal hay fever, atopic and contact dermatitis, mild blood transfusion reactions. Their topical use is not recommended because of the risk of sensitization and a high tendency to cause eczematous reactions. Dimehydrinate and promethazine are employed in the prevention and treatment of motion sickness, other vomiting disorders associated with labyrinthine dysfunction as well as nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy. Diphenhydramine is frequently used in the treatment of cough as combination preparation with other agents. Highest concentration in mammals is found in the pineal gland, acting as a precursor for melatonin. It is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan and acts on several types of receptors. Altered functions may be responsible for disturbances in sleep, mood, sexual behavior, motor activity, pain perception, migraine, temperature regulation, endocrine control, psychiatric disorders and extra-pyramidal activity. It relieves the nausea and vomiting, but the headache may recur, necessitating repeated administrations. The bioavailability of oral dose is only 14 %; thus, the oral dose is several times larger than the subcutaneous dose. Adverse effects include flushing and heat at the injection site, neck pain, dizziness, and tingling of the hands. The drug is contraindicated with symptomatic ischemic heart diseases, angina, and hypertension as it may cause coronary vasoconstriction. Adverse reactions include gastrointestinal irritation, drowsiness, vertigo, and psychic disturbances. It is mainly used to relieve the itching associated with skin disorders such as allergic dermatitis. Given orally or intravenously, it is useful in the management of nausea and vomiting associated with cytotoxic therapy. Prostaglandins: They were named so because of their presumed origin from the prostate gland. Human seminal fluid is the richest known source, but they are also present in various tissues. The prostaglandins are synthesized from polyunsaturated fatty acids at their sites of action. They play an important role in the development of the inflammatory response in association with other mediators. Smooth muscle: most stimulate myometrium and are known to be important in the initiation and maintenance of labor. Natural prostaglandins have no therapeutic application because of short duration of action, but their derivatives such as carboprost, dinoprostone and misoprostol find clinical application. They are also finding several other uses more recently such as erectile dysfunction, glaucoma, etc. Adverse Effects include fever, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, headache, nausea, and vomiting. Respiration is the exchange of gases between the tissue of the body and to outside environment. It involves breathing in of an air through the respiratory tract, uptake of oxygen from the lungs, transport of oxygen through the body in the blood stream, utilization of oxygen in the metabolic activities (cells and removal of carbon dioxide from the body. Drug therapy of pulmonary disorders is generally directed towards altering a specific physiologic function. The chapter will focus on drugs used to treat some of the more common disorders affecting the respiratory system particularly bronchial asthma, allergies and congestions associated with certain respiratory disorders.

Hormonal Factors  Early menarche (before 12) cheap vytorin 30mg visa, late menopause (after 55) and greater total duration of regular menses are associated with an increased risk of breast cancer order vytorin 20 mg without prescription. Radiation Exposure Women exposed to ionizing radiation of the chest have been shown to be at an increased risk of developing breast cancer. Obesity and Dietary Fat 16 Obesity occurs in approximately 60% of patients at diagnosis of breast cancer and a further 60-75% gain weight during treatment. The majority of studies indicate that being obese is a poor prognostic factor and are associated with less favourable nodal status as well as increased risk of contralateral disease, recurrence, co-morbid disease and overall mortality (Doyle et al, 2006). Obesity is associated with higher levels of insulin and other hormones in both pre and post menopausal women. Insulin and related proteins have been shown to increase the risk of cancer diagnosis and increase risk of cancer recurrence two-fold. Other metabolic hormones play a role between obesity and breast cancer recurrence. Physical Examination The physical breast examination is a step by step process that should be carried out by an experienced practitioner, examining each breast, nipple and regional nodes through observation and palpation in both the erect and supine position. Skin oedema of the breast erythema (skin reddening) or a palpable breast mass, nipple retraction, asymmetry or changes of the character of the skin and regional node presence, size and character should all be noted. Other causes of breast masses Presentation Diagnosis Treatment Cystic Mass Firm/rubbery, Direct Ultrasound/ Aspiration, Follow-Up in Aspiration 6-8 weeks, Excisional Biopsy (if aspiration bloody) Fibroadenomas Non-tender, round, Triple Test Evaluation Observation/follow-up (Common in women macrolobulated masses (Physical Exam, studies, complete under 40 years) that are firm/ rubbery. Mammography and Fine surgical excision Needle Aspiration) Hematoma Ecchymosis (blood below Breast Imaging- Supportive garments, subcutaneous tissue) mammography analgesics and needle painful tender mass. During a mammography each breast is placed between two plates and compressed so that a clear image is obtained. During a screening mammography 2 X-Rays are taken of each breast of asymptomatic women to detect change at a preclinical stage, this is the primary role of mammography. After analyzing mammographic images, radiologists classify findings into five categories (see table). American Cancer Society and American College of Radiology guidelines for screening for breast cancer and appropriate use of mammography state: Asymptomatic Women  Women of 20 years of age or older should perform Breast Screening Examination monthly. Symptomatic Women  Any women experiencing signs or symptoms of breast cancer or unusual changes to the breasts should have a thorough breast examination including mammography and ultrasound despite age, to determine whether cancer is present. A diagnostic mammography includes additional views such as spot compression or magnification views for a more detailed report. Its sensitivity is 65-98% and specificity is 34-100% in diagnosing breast lesions (Irish Cancer Society, 2011). The palpable breast mass is trapped and a fine needle is slowly inserted into the mass. After several advances within the mass along multiple planes the needle is withdrawn and the specimen is placed on a slide for investigation. Excisional Biopsy Excisional Biopsy is the complete surgical removal of a palpable breast lesion and is indicated if Needle biopsy is not feasible or if it is non-diagnostic or discordant with imaging results. Depending on the likelihood of malignancy, a rim of surrounding normal breast tissue can be removed. The patient is usually under local anaesthetic and 21 sedation with placement of the incision determined by both oncologic and cosmetic considerations. Langer’s lines are natural lines of skin tension and creasing and incisions along them produce optimal cosmetic results. The breast lesion is removed and the biopsy cavity is examined for further abnormality or suspect lesions. Non-invasive or invasive breast cancer Cells Non-invasive breast cancers stay within the ducts/lobules. Cell Grade A 1-3 Grade Scale with Gr 1 cells slightly different to normal cells and Gr 3 cells appearing very different to normal cells and growing in a rapid and disorganised pattern. Tumour Necrosis (Cell death) This is often a sign of a rapidly growing aggressive form of breast cancer. Surgical Margins The surgeon examines the rim of the tissue removed (surgical margin). If there are no cancerous cells on the outer rim of the removed tissue it is described as clear, it there is cancerous cells present it is called positive and if there is cancerous cells close to the edge it is called close. Vascular or Lymphatic Invasion Describes whether the cancerous cells have infiltrated the vascular/lymphatic system supplying the breast. Ploidy Diploid cancers cells have the same amount of chromosomes as normal cells and tend to be slower growing, less aggressive cells. Aneuploid cancer cells have too many/too little amount of chromosomes and tend to be rapid growing aggressive cells. Hormone Receptor Status Hormone receptor status determines if hormone therapy would be appropriate. Tumour is < 5 cms across, and has spread to underarm lymph nodes that T0 N2 M0 are attached to each other or nearby tissue. Or may have spread to lymph nodes behind the breastbone but T3 N2 M0 not spread to underarm lymph nodes. Tumour can be any size and has grown into the chest wall or the skin of T4 N0 M0 the breast.
