- The Communication Gap Between Nurses and Other Healthcare Professionals
When it comes to healthcare and receiving aid at hospitals, clinics, and other health centers, the communication between doctors and the nursing staff is paramount to ensure that patients receive the very best care possible. In a place where there are often hundreds — if not thousands — of...
- What Is Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus?
Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is a type of brain disorder, wherein excess cerebrospinal fluid builds up in the ventricles of the brain. It causes problems in reasoning, thinking, difficulty in walking, and loss of bladder control.Brains ventricles are hollow fluid-filled chambers. Even...
- What is a Transient Ischemic Attack?
Also considered as a mini stroke, a transient ischemic attack (TIA) has symptoms similar to that of a stroke, but lasting only for a short period of time, without causing any permanent damage. TIA is often caused by the interruption of blood flow to the brain by a blood clot. Once the blood flow is...
