Do rhinoplastys fix headaches and nasal obstruction?


I have pressure all the time at the bump on the bridge of my nose. I also have some nasal obstruction in my left nostril. I believe that smoothing out that bump will fix the headaches but how about the obstruction. A doctor said my nose was a little crooked so my left nostril is obstructed can they fix this also with a rhinoplasty?

What is the condition for the obstruction of the coronary arteries?


It's a project for medical terminology, and I've looked everywhere and can't find it...please help!
----------

Coronary artery disease is reduced blood flow through the coronary arteries. This is usually due to atherosclerotic plaques, which is usually due to poor diet and aging.

When blood flow is completely obstructed, your heart can't get oxygen and starts to die. You feel a sudden, sharp stabbing pain and yep it's a HEART ATTACK! The med term for heart attack is Myocardial Infarction (infarct = area that dies due to lack of blood; Myocardial = heart muscle).

I'm sure that's what your instructor is looking for. Actually, myocardial infarction is a type of "Acute Coronary Syndrome," which is a phrase doctors use to cover sudden onset chest pain ("unstable angina"), NSTEMI (a type of Myocardial Infarction) and STEMI (a worse type of Myocardial Infarction).  (+ info)

What's the diagnostic tool to find out bowel obstruction in Bariatric Surgery altered people?


The CT Scan it gives a jolt of the equivalent of 5000 X-Rays.

So good to be thin and "healthy" after undergoing frankenstein inspired surgery...
Emily so you know what 5000 X Rays do to your chances of getting Cancer?
----------

I've had bariatric surgery. The first time it was suspected I might have an obstruction they did do a CT scan, however, the second occurrence, they
performed an upper endoscopy. It's painless (you're briefly placed under sedation) and the Doctor examines the esophagus and pouch with an instrument with a light/camera attached. But I believe the common protocol is the CT scan.

*I know X-Ray/Radiation increases chances of Cancer, but if one has a bowel obstruction, what would you reckon your chances are with an Ischemic (dead) bowel?  (+ info)

Can Pepcid (h2 blocker) cause a bowel obstruction or partial bowel obstruction?


Is it possible for an H2 blocker like pepcid to cause a bowel obstruction or even a partial bowel obstruction?

Even if it was only taken a few times?
Thanks for the info Anasthasia, however it doesn't answer my question, lol
----------

hii Lex,
Famotidine (Pepcid AC) is the most potent H2 blocker. The most common side effect of famotidine is headache, which occurs in 4.7% of people who take it. Famotidine is virtually free of drug interactions but the FDA has just issued a warning on its use in patients with kidney problems

Famotidine is excreted primarily by the kidney. This can pose a danger to people with kidney problems. Physicians are now being advised by the US Food and Drug Administration and Health Canada to reduce the dose and increase the time between doses in patients with kidney failure. Use of the drug in those with impaired kidney function can affect the central nervous system and may result in anxiety, depression, insomnia or drowsiness, and mental disturbances.

OK. I hope you will be glad with my answer.
Takecare there.

How is an ET tube supposed to help if you have upper airway obstruction?


Lets say a child has a little toy stuck in their throat and you have tried the heimlich maneuver and its not working. Why would health providers insert an ET tube? Wouldnt that push the toy further down the throat and create more problems?
----------

If the child is able to move air the health care providers are more likely to just pull the obstruction out under some kind of sedation. If the airway is totally occluded then establishing an airway is of utmost importance. If the child is in the hospital they would probably remove the obstruction. If outside of the hospital I would think that pushing the toy further in would be preferable to death.  (+ info)

How do I get my mom to quit smoking after bowel obstruction surgery?


Had emergency surgery. Will be coming home soon. She has been smoking since she was a teen & she is coming to my place so I can watch after her. How can I get her no to smoke? she has emphazema too. Please help. It's been a horrible scarry week. Don't need anymore scares. 6 kids total & we all want her to quit. Thanks
----------

Well, I recommend for her to try the Gradual Reduction method...that should prevent her from having any bad withdrawal symptoms like if she were to just go 'cold turkey'. There are a few ways to assist in quitting via gradual reduction of nicotine levels, and actually stop her from inhaling the nearly 4000 other harmful chemicals included in cigarettes; one of the newest is the electronic cigarette, which only uses water and nicotine, so she wouldn't be completely destroying her lungs while she's at it, but she would still get her nicotine fix for the time being. Over time she would need to lower the dose of nicotine to wean her off of it completely; there's a lot more information about that particular method at http://smokefreeme.info/methods/gradualreduction.html . Best of luck, I know it's hard!!  (+ info)

How long would someone have to be constipated for the fecal matter to get compacted into a bowel obstruction?


Or how long would the fecal matter have to be compacting to become one? I mean a medically classifiable bowel instruction. I know this is an obscure question... Hopefully there's a doctor out there who can answer this.
----------

That is a very serious matter. It can be related to other health problems going on and even cause them. If the person is in ill health, caretakers may not even notice the problem building.

I don't think there is any standard answer to this question. Different circumstances can produce a bowel obstruction in a shorter or longer period of time.

I am not a doctor, but I have seen this problem being ignored in a hospital despite the patient's complaints. So, if you think this is happening, talk to the doctor, director of nursing, or whoever could and wil do something about it.  (+ info)

Is it possible to have a bowel obstruction without pain?


I feel pressure in my abdomen, and I can't go. I'm not in any pain, at least not yet. I tried dulcolax but so far it hasn't done anything. Would mineral oil be a safe thing to try?
----------

It depends if you have pressure with pain as well. I would try increasing fiber and water intake - make sure you do both as fiber without water can be constipating itself.   (+ info)
