How do I unclog a clogged milk duct?


I am pretty sure I have a clogged milk duct because my nipple is hurting like hell, and has been all night! I was going to go to the walk in clinic, but it's Sunday and everything is closed. I also do not want to take antibiotics unless I absolutely have to; especially because I am already taking antibiotics for my wisdom teeth that need to come out. So, I know I can pump to try and get the milk duct unclogged, but will anything else help?

How much would you pay for a duct tape tie?


I made a tie out of duct tape the other day and my Dad said that I could probably sell them because they would be so unique. So I was wondering if anyone would actually buy a duct tape tie, and if so, how much would you be willing to pay?

I wouldn't pay much for it, I'd rather make one myself.  (+ info)

CPR: Why is it best to immediately ventilate an unconscious person with a severe airway obstruction?


When a person becomes unconscious while receiving the Heimlich maneuver; and after laying the patient supine and seeing that there is no visible obstruction to clear via the mouth, the next step is to attempt to ventilate.

Doesn't this pose the risk of forcing an obstructing object farther down into the airway? Wouldn't it make more sense to immediately perform chest compressions?
----------

Two thoughts: Most AHA text books indicate the rescuer should immediate begin CPR (Which could be interpreted as Chest Compressions First)....
More Likely: The Object will not be forced further "Down" the airway because most objects are "on top of" the airway and if the object could have moved further down, it would have already, by the vacuum the victim (patient) creates by trying to "suck" in air before collapsing.
Also, many victims relax their muscle a bit when falling unresponsive and are no longer "sucking" air in (No Vacuum) and the object falls off the top of the airway to the "other tube" esophagus or other part of the Oral Pharynx. Thanks.  (+ info)

what can cause a dialated pancreatic duct?


I recently left the emergency room after experiencing sever abdominal pains. The KAT Scan and X-Ray showed that I have a dialated pancreatic duct. What can be the causes of this and could that be what was causing the abdominal pains?
----------

I wonder how a plain xray can show dilated pancreatic duct. Even a sonography may be a better tool here. Though gallsone is a possible cause, you will need more investigations to rule out other things. Abstinence from alcohol will be a good idea till your doctor permits it.
Good luck!  (+ info)

What is it called when your eye duct gets plugged?


My eye duct got plugged up and now it is kind of a bump on my eyelid.
----------

Actually a blocked TEAR duct is called Dacryostenosis.

The previous poster is getting his/her medical dictionary license revoked!

JK, we all make mistakes! lol Because Dacryocystitis is an infection of the nasolacrimal sac, frequently caused by duct obstruction, as I stated before! Dacryostenosis!

Jenn!

That said, I don't know how any doctor can keep all these medical terms straight!  (+ info)

Do twice as many boys get the condition of PUJ obstruction than girls?


I have just had my 18 week ultrasound and was unable to find out the sex of my baby because the legs were crossed. My results read as follows:
Normal pregnancy of 18.5 weeks. No abnormality has been demonstrated. Mild pyelectasis of the left kidney is demonstrated which is most likely physiological, however progress ultrasound at 32 weeks is recommended to exclude underlying PUJ obstruction.
I have heard that twice as many boys get the condition of PUJ obstruction than girls. Does this mean im having a boy?
----------

If what you heard is correct, then you have a 2/3 chance of having a boy. The 2/3 chance of a boy is twice the 1/3 chance of a girl.

I'm not sure about the validity of that fact though, but your question at the end simply asks if it means you're having a boy. Not necessarily.  (+ info)
