Advances in Blood Medicine

Bill Underwood  Phoenix Signs of the Times Examiner

 

When a patient refuses chemo-therapy or radiation therapy, you may occasionally see it referred to as “life-saving” chemo or “life-saving” radiation, but usually not.

 

Why not? Because most readers know that chemo or radiation may or may not be life-saving, and that rejecting one or the other doesn’t mean the patient has opted to end their life; it may simply mean they have chosen some other treatment.

 

 

Much More

 

 

Future articles in this series will examine:

 

the most common justifications for blood transfusion – its oxygen-carrying ability and its clotting factors – the fallacy of both those beliefs, and the very real threats that even ‘safe’ donor blood pose to patients. We’ll also look at advances in blood alternatives, as well as new treatments for traumatic blood loss that have come out of the Iraq/Afghanistan wars.

In the future article we will be told that transfused blood loses nitric oxide which keeps blood vessels open ( much is lost 1st day, starts immediately ), thus transfusions constrict, even close blood vessels. Plus another chemical change (  2,3-DPG ) makes stored blood unable to unload oxygen to the cells for 24 to 72 hours. There goes the main reason for giving transfusions- delivering oxygen to cells. :deadhorse:

Advances in Blood Medicine - Part three

 

Bill Underwood  Phoenix Signs of the Times Examiner

 

An operating room nurse responded to Part Two of this series:

 

“So you’re saying, if a woman in our birthing center is bleeding out, we should just let her die rather than give her blood?”

 

Are those the only two options – blood transfusion or death?

Real advances in blood technology

The ABCs of emergency medicine are changing.

I’m sorry, but this is going to be a long, complex discussion. Anything having to do with emergency care of your body would have to be. Before we’re done, you may find yourself making a list to carry in your wallet: TXA, FastClot, Perftec, Perflubron, Hemopure.

Advances in Blood Medicine - Part Five

 

Blood, medical ethics, and the Bible

 

Bill Underwood | Phoenix Signs of the Times Examiner

January 9, 2014

 

 

In a 2010 survey on ethics, 10,000 doctors were asked, ‘What was your biggest ethical dilemma?’ The top five were:

  • Reporting an incompetent or impaired colleague
  • Owning up after making a medical error
  • Patient confidentiality, when one half of a couple is HIV positive and the other half doesn't know
  • Prolonging futile care for a dying patient
  • Denying care to a nonpaying patient

None mentioned pressuring a patient to accept a treatment that was against the patient’s wishes. None listed glossing over the dangers of a particular treatment.
