National Day of the child with cancer
Although overall prognosis depends on the type of cancer you have a child, has a survival rate reaching 70%.
The most common tumors occurring in children are those that affect the central nervous system, CNS lymphoma “non-Hodgkin” Hodgkin’s lymphoma and Wilms’ tumor.
For this disease affect a very specific type of population, critical care is even more special because, obviously, its discovery is a major trauma for both parents and children.
In addition to care for oneself, one must provide the family of the patient information, support and assistance to try to keep well, welfare. Furthermore, this disease occur in children, we must ensure their maturational development and education.
In Spain there are several avocaciones of parents of children with this disease. At national level, the Spanish Federation of parents of children with cancer, and regional, others like ADANO in Navarre, Asturias or ANDEX GALBAN in Andalusia.
The childhood cancer occurs in a time course of the person who joins the biological growth and training, which involves added complexity health care.
In general, although the survival rate is quite high, it is true that today the disease, cancer is the leading cause of mortality in the age group from 0 to14 years.
Disease of the 21st century the most attacking humans and humans are the most deadly and clearly is one of the biggest killers, but what really Century Heart Disease. These diseases attack people of all ages, but not contagious disease.
Some of the terms of heart disease based on how it works:
- Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is (as its name) in the Coronary Artery Disease. Ischemic heart disease or IHD is narrowing the blood vessels leading to ischemia, which is a lack of blood supply to the heart muscle.
- MI, Myocardial Infarction is the term that describes the death of heart muscle as a result of blockage in blood flow. Myocardial Infarction as a term has become synonymous with the term Heart Attack.
Coronary heart disease attack humans through the coronary arteries, small blood vessels that keep the muscles of the Heart is supplied with nutrients, especially oxygen which enables it to continue working as it should.
Changes in Coronary Artery lasted for years and sediments, fat etc can build on it and this causes angina, heart attack and sudden death.
Coronary heart disease has been documented as the No. 1 cause of death in Indonesia. Most of us at some time a good surveillance we know or have known someone who has suffered from Heart Attack, but according to statistics that do not always happen.
Thus, what actually happened to a good cause this increase in incidence of heart attack or has acted as an agent to help increase the number of Heart Attacks?
In a weird way one of the best descriptions of the causes of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) and Heart Attacks is that it is a “disease caused by the wealth”. This is becoming more and more common in countries with more advanced and which stress factors (one of the main causes of coronary heart disease) is a common factor.
From developed countries where coronary heart disease became more common, Western Europe, North America and Australasia is a leading region in the League of coronary heart disease. Link to riches seems to have some confidence in that has been noted that the migrants moving to these countries is less developed than regional or state show an alarming increase in incidence of coronary heart disease when they arrive or have spent some time in the better countries forward.
Heart disease can be avoided if we remain alert to the triggers, and the most important for us to know that the higher the medical science more and more types of diseases in the find.
