Please, only answer if you are a medical professional.

what is the mortality rate for Myelodysplastic syndrome in and 80 year old woman?
Assuming that you know more about Myelodysplastic syndrome than I do then you should understand this better than I do:
Prognosis and prognostic indicator in MDS
Indicators of a good prognosis in MDS Younger age; normal or moderately reduced neutrophil or platelet counts; low blast counts in the bone marrow(<20%) and no blasts in the blood; no Auer rods; ringed sideroblasts; normal karyotypes of mixed karyotypes without complex chromosome abnormalities and in vitro marrow culture- non leukemic growth pattern.
Indicators of a poor prognosis in MDS:
Severe neutropenia or thrombocytopenia
high blast count in the bone marrow (20-29%) or blasts in the blood
absence of ringed sideroblasts
abnormal localization or immature granulocyte precursors in bone marrow section
all or mostly abnormal karyotypes or complex marrow chromosome abnormalities
in vitro bone emarrow culture-leukemic growth pattern.
Prognosis and karyotype Good: Normal,-Y,del(5q); Intermaediate: All other abnormalities Poor; Complex(>3 abnormalities); chromosome 7 anomalies
The International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS) is the most commonly used tool in MDS to predict long-term outcome.
Maybe you can visit the Wikipeida page and cut & paste that bit and show it to her doctor to ask him or her to explain it to you in laymans terms.

How do mortality rates get specifically affected by natural disasters?
I know that natural disasters can have a huge influence on mortality rates. But, how do these rates get affected specifically by a natural disaster individually?
in earthquakes, the mortality rate is usually, if a large earthquake, high.
tsunamis do not produce much mortality, unless it occurs in a poverty struck area.
floods, floods can produce massive mortality, as is seen in the pakistani floods, more than 1,300 deceased already.
hurricanes do not produce very much mortality, this is because they are easy to predict, and while loss of homes is massive, the people who occupied them have already fled to safety. (+ info
How can we work together to reduce child mortality around the world?
Worldwide, 10.5 million children under 5 will die this year, most of them die from easily preventable causes. How can we work together to reduce child mortality on a global scale?
Child mortality is based on quite a wide and varied number of things. My advice is choose a cause that is contributing to the problem but has meaning for you. Get involed. There are a lot of wonderful organizations doing the work you already care about. Even a monetary contribution would allow these organizations to buy additional vaccine to distribute. The best answer is ... care. When you care you talk (informing others) and give (protecting others). I think it is wonderful that you are thinking this way. Please, do what you can. Have the courage to make a difference, even a small one. (+ info

what is the mortality rate for patients with severe sleep apnea?
___ out of ____ people die from severe sleep apnea. (or any other statistics about mortality rate)
what is the life expectancy with proper treatment?
There is a lot of undiagnosed sleep apnea out there so your first question is difficult to answer. People who fall asleep at the wheel because of sleep apnea and die in a crash would be in a different statistics. People who die of heart disease because of damage from high bp caused by sleep apnea fall in a different category.
You second question is also difficult to answer. It depends on when the person was diagnosed and what is their co morbidity's. Does treatment save lives, I would say definitely. It saved mine. I was diagnosed in my 30s and am 100 percent compliant. (+ info
