Hemophilia A is an inherited condition that affects the ability of the body to clot blood. Symptoms include bleeding and bruising more than normal.
People with hemophilia A have a deficiency of clotting factor VIII or IX, two proteins that help the blood clot. Treatment involves a specialized type of clotting factor concentrates made from human plasma.
Those with severe hemophilia have frequent bleeds, which usually occur when they are young. They may bleed after surgery, dental procedures or injury.
In some cases, children with severe hemophilia can also bleed for no apparent reason. These bleeds are called spontaneous hemarthroses.
In the past, hemophilia A was treated by a combination of whole blood or plasma infusions and freeze-dried concentrates of clotting factor VIII and IX. These products were effective for a short time, but were only partially successful in controlling bleeding.
Covid disease is an illness caused by a new coronavirus. It first appeared in December 2019 and has spread worldwide.
The virus causes respiratory illnesses that can range from mild to serious. It can also cause pneumonia in some people.
It is important for everyone to be informed about this disease and what it can do. It is best to avoid contact with infected people and to wash hands often.
This is especially important for health care workers who must ensure that they are properly protected and educated. It is a good idea to get a vaccine for this disease as it protects against all known variants of the virus.
The virus is most likely to be transmitted from person to person through droplets made when a cough or sneeze is exhaled or from contact with surfaces where those droplets land. It is also possible for the virus to be passed from person to person when a person is asymptomatic.
Panic attack on a plane
For many people with a panic disorder, air travel can be an anxiety-inducing experience. They worry about the journey, and it becomes on their mind almost constantly.
That can set the stage for a panic attack, which is an exaggeration of your body’s normal reaction to stress or excitement. It can lead to sweating, a racing heart and numbness in the hands or feet.
You can try using a breathing technique called 7:11 to calm yourself down. Breathe in through your nose for a count of seven, and out through your mouth for a count of 11. Repeat multiple times until you feel better.
You can also try focusing on other things to distract yourself from the situation. For example, listening to audio books or crossword puzzles can help you relax. You can even use noise-canceling headphones if the sounds of the aircraft engine or other passengers are adding to your discomfort.
Open heart surgery
79-year-old Pro Football Hall of Fame coach John Madden underwent open heart surgery on Wednesday to repair blockages. He’s expected to make a full recovery, according to an NFL press release.
Cardiac surgeons (also called heart specialists) perform these surgeries. They must complete medical school and then five years of residency training and two years of specialization in cardiac surgery.
If you have a complex, life-threatening problem with your heart muscle, arteries, valves or other structures, open heart surgery may be your best option. It is a major surgery and can cause a lot of pain and recovery time.
After your operation, you’ll spend a day or two in the hospital’s intensive care unit to monitor your vital signs and ensure that your body is recovering properly. You may also be given a ventilator to help you breathe.
You can expect to have a lot of swelling and tenderness around your incision for a few weeks after surgery. You should avoid rubbing your incision, because this could irritate it and slow recovery. You should also avoid smoking or drinking alcohol, which can increase your risk of complications.
