The midst of a medical emergency is not the time to begin exploring the contents of this valuable resource cheap risperdal 4mg amex. The Virtual Naval Hospital provides detailed protocols and other information that is very useful in patient management and that is beyond the scope of this book discount risperdal 3mg online. The ship’s health care provider is no longer an “independent practitioner” except for minor complaints. When a crew member has a serious illness or injury, the ship’s medical provider should contact a shore based physician or other health professional. Arrangements for medical ship-to-shore communication must be made before they are needed. A shipping line should make arrangements to assure every ship’s captain has access via radio (or other communication device) to primary care medical back-up with referral capability to the full range of medical specialties. It is critical that these medical communication networks are established before they are needed since there is not time to establish them in the height of a medical emergency. Various arrangements for this coverage are possible, and various payment options also exist (fee-for-service, retainer, or a combination). To provide this ship-to-shore medical coverage, numerous medical consulting firms have been developed. Some also provide assistance if a crew member requires evacuation and/or medical care ashore in domestic or foreign ports. I hope that this book is helpful to every member of the health care team who is trying to assure the safest of voyages and the healthiest of crews. Some ships are equipped with well-trained health personnel and very sophisticated equipment while others rely on those with comparatively minimal training. This chapter will describe some approaches and procedures to provide initial care and comfort until professional health personnel and equipment are available to provide more definitive care. The environment in which the patient is cared for should be a quiet spot, away from the main corridor of activity and noise; yet visible at all times to those caring for the patient. Preferably, the area should also be a relatively safe spot, that is, an area not near the storage of gasoline or explosives, especially if oxygen is needed in the care of the patient. The area should be well-lit allowing observation of any changes in skin-color or behavior, yet an area which will allow the patient to obtain needed rest as well. If a formal sickbay is available, clean linens and blankets should be part of the standard equipment. Other standard equipment should include thermometers (both one for routine fever measurement and a rectal thermometer capable of low readings), blood pressure cuff and sphygmomanometer, stethoscope, otoscope, ophthalmoscope, tongue blades, flashlight, gloves and lubricant, reflex hammer, several washbasins, (with water supply) and scale. The health care provider should remain calm in his or her approach so as not add to the anxiety already present, and not to create further pain. Although it may seem as if help and assistance are miles away, most ships have some means of ship to shore communication which the health care provider should not hesitate to use for advice and consultation. Keeping the patient informed of what is going on at all times is important to allay anxiety and provide reassurance, even in the face of uncertainty. The purpose of conducting an assessment is to collect and use data in clinical decision making. A detailed description of the complete history and physical examination is beyond the capacity of this book. Therefore, an abbreviated version will be presented which is intended to serve as a guideline for the health care provider when confronted with a health impaired sea-goer. Furthermore, special emphasis will be placed on the problem-focused health history, which is used when collecting data about a specific problem system or region. Normally, patients seek initial assistance from the health care provider for a health complaint, called the “chief complaint”. This story provided by the patient provides some of the most important information in determining what is likely to be wrong with the patient. Appropriate interventions will be planned and initiated based on the findings of the history and physical examination, and possibly, the laboratory data results. The record includes and should record: the date, time, and other identifying data, such as age, sex, race or ethnicity, birthplace, and occupation. The present illness section describes the information relevant to the chief complaint. It should be a clear concise account of the problem for which the patient is seeking care and presented in chronological narrative order. It should contain the onset of the problem, the setting in which it developed, duration, precipitating factors, its manifestations, and any past treatments. The principal symptoms should be described in terms of location, quality, quantity or severity, timing, the setting in which they occur, factors that aggravate or relieve them, and any other associated manifestations. Usually, this will include childhood illnesses, accidents and disabling injuries, hospitalizations, operations, and major illnesses. Following the past history is the current health information section, which contains data about all major, current health-related information.

It influ- ences neuromuscular risperdal 3mg free shipping, cardiovascular cheap risperdal 2mg with amex, immunologic, and hormonal function. Magnesium is a smooth muscle relaxant; it dilates coronary arteries and peripheral vessels, exerts antiarrhythmic effects, may have a permissive effect on catecholamine actions, and can play a role in various thrombogenic conditions. It plays an important role in intracellular homeo- stasis, including activation of thiamine and, consequently, an array of crucial body functions. As an essential cofactor for adenosine 5′-phosphate produc- tion, magnesium plays a pivotal role in the breakdown of glycogen, the oxi- dation of fat, and the synthesis of protein. It influences various cellular functions including transport of potassium and calcium ions, cell prolifera- tion, signal transduction, and energy metabolism. It is required for the metabolism of a number of minerals including calcium, potassium, phos- phorus, zinc, copper, iron, sodium, lead, and cadmium and for the produc- tion of gastric hydrochloric acid, acetylcholine, and nitric oxide. A half a cup of cooked spinach supplies 78 mg of magnesium, one fifth of the daily requirement. Absorption of magnesium is reduced on a 591 592 Part Three / Dietary Supplements high-fat or high-fiber diet, because it is bound in the intestine by phytates and oxalates. Supplementation is usually in the range of 300 to 1000 mg, with a ther- apeutic dose range of 1000 to 1500 mg/day. Physiologic studies suggest that women with no clini- cal evidence of magnesium deficiency may not respond to short-term sup- plementation with any increases in the mass of the exchangeable magnesium body pool or in magnesium turnover rates. In magnesium-depleted patients, both refractory hypocalcemia and hypo- kalemia respond to magnesium replacement. Furthermore, animal experi- ments have shown that magnesium supplementation, although reducing apparent calcium absorption, promotes bone formation, prevents bone resorption, and increases the dynamic strength of bone. Magnesium (200 mg) in combination with vitamin B6 (50 mg) may marginally reduce anxiety-related premenstrual symptoms. Oral administration of magnesium, 500 mg/day, has been reported to relieve exercise-induced muscle spasms within a few days,7 but conflicting trial results for magnesium in the treatment of fibromyalgia have been reported. Magnesium counteracts vasospasm; inhibits platelet aggregation; stabilizes cell membranes; and affects serotonin recep- Chapter 79 / Magnesium (Mg) 593 tors, nitric oxide, and eicosanoid synthesis and release. Randomized clinical trials are urgently needed to determine whether magnesium supplementation will alter the natural his- tory of chronic cardiovascular diseases and whether any benefits detected are limited to patients with magnesium deficiency. Magnesium has been used in the treatment of preeclampsia and eclamp- sia, certain types of ventricular tachycardia, and acute asthma in certain patients. Magnesium deficiency has been postulated to be associated with disor- ders as diverse as cardiac disease; hypertension; preeclampsia; diabetes mel- litus; depressed immunity; premenstrual syndrome; osteoporosis; mood swings; and peroxynitrite damage presenting as migraine, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, or Alzheimer’s disease. When magnesium supplements are taken, an appropriate regimen includes calcium, with the ratio of calcium to magnesium being 2:1.

Manganese is an important trace element that facilitates synthesis of mucopolysaccharides, lipids, and thyroxine. It is an antioxidative transition metal and helps prevent tissue damage caused by lipid oxidation. As part of the enzyme superoxide dismutase, manganese reduces the risk of exposure to free radi- cals. As a constituent of pyruvate carboxylase, it generates oxaloacetate, a substrate in the tricarboxylic acid (Krebs) cycle, and may play a role in glu- cose homeostasis. It also activates enzymes involved in cartilage synthesis; facilitates formation of urea; and activates various kinases, decarboxylases, transferases, and hydroxylases. The recom- mended intake ranges from 2 to 5 mg daily; however, this may be excessive because some consider a manganese intake of more than 10 mg per day from food or 4.
