surgery-collective

I’m so sick of the kardashians/ jenners!!!! I’m sick of over the top photoshopped faces and bodies and the glamorization of plastic surgery!!!!!! When will we collectively mean it when we say girls and women (and people in general) should be comfortable in their own skin and tell people that plastic surgery is fine but in no ways essential…….. it’s a trend that I hope dies asap because I’m sick of it and it does so much damage

Bariatric surgery.

What is bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgical procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold. Bariatric procedures also often cause hormonal changes. Most weight loss surgeries today are performed using minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic surgery).

Gastric bypass and other weight-loss surgeries make changes to your digestive system to help you lose weight by limiting how much you can eat or by reducing the absorption of nutrients, or both. Gastric bypass and other weight-loss surgeries are done when diet and exercise haven’t worked or when you have serious health problems because of your weight.

There are many types of weight-loss surgery, known collectively as bariatric surgery. Gastric bypass is one of the most common types of bariatric surgery in the United States. Many surgeons prefer gastric bypass surgery because it generally has fewer complications than do other weight-loss surgeries.

Still, all forms of weight-loss surgery, including gastric bypass, are major procedures that can pose serious risks and side effects. Also, you must make permanent healthy changes to your diet and get regular exercise to help ensure the long-term success of bariatric surgery.

anonymous asked:

I'm torn between becoming a nurse or a doctor. I know there are major differences between the two, especially in the amount of education, but I don't have real life experience with either. What are some skills that doctors need but nurses don't? (Or vice versa.)

Thanks for your question.

This is a difficult question, which I cannot fully answer. Doctors and nurses require a lot of the same skills. I would say doctors have some of those skills to a higher degree because they have more training but then that argument falls through when you have nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetists, or just nurses who have been working in a certain department for long periods of time. And there are certainly skills that nurses have to a higher degree than doctors because of their training. I also, have seen only a small fraction of what nurses truly do. Doctors are the ones calling the plays, to use football terms. They write the orders for medications, discuss the treatment of the disease and how to get the patient healthy/out of the hospital. Nurses can sometimes writes orders, especially NPs and I’ve seen experienced nurses know more about certain illnesses than the doctors.

Nurses are more the playmakers. They will start the IV lines and administer the medications. They will do a lot of the physical caring of the patient. They must be resilient. The nurse probably knows his/her patient better than anyone else because he/she spends so much time with them. Nurses will inform the doctors about changes in the patients condition that may change how the patient is managed. Doctors have to see many patients in a short period of time and usually a team of nurses divides up this number of patients.

But doctors make plays as well. They start central lines, they run medical codes, traumas and perform surgeries. Nurses will collect the vitals and do some physical exam maneuvers that doctors will usually do more in depth.

I guess the real answer is the amount of depth. They have the same skills but at different depths. Nurses have more depth of patient interactions while doctors have more depth of diseases knowledge and treatment. Doctors have the license to order medications while nurses have the skills to give them. Without nurses there would be no doctors and without doctors there would be no nurses.

I tried to answer this without offending any nurses which I find impossible because I am making incredibly generalized statements. So any nurses that follow can feel free to elaborate more from the nursing perspective. 

i vote from now on when cis people ask about the surgery we collectively act like we dont know what theyre talking about

“have u had…. the surgery” “idk i got my apendix out in 4th grade????” “no THE surgery” “what like wisdom teeth? ya it was hilaroius”
