What is Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome?

A: Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is a very serious disease. This infectious disease causes a person to display symptoms that are similar to those caused by the flu. Unfortunately, it doesn’t usually resolve itself like the flu may. Instead, it rapidly progresses to causing breathing difficulties, which can be fatal. It is the first stage of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome that resembles the flu. Patients experience fever, chills, body aches, and headaches. A person with this disease may also develop nausea and vomiting, pain in the abdominal area, dizziness, and diarrhea.

The next stage of the disease is called the...

How do I cure the hiccups?

A: Here are some tried-and-true remedies for hiccups from both "camps." 1. Sweeten the hiccups. Overloading the nerve endings in the mouth with a sweet sensation may do the trick. Have a teaspoonful of sugar, and if you can, place the sugar on the back of the tongue, where "sour" is tasted. This way, the sugar overload will pack the most punch. 2. Play "hear no evil." Some doctors recommend that you put your fingers in your ears to stop hiccups. The branches of the vagus nerve also reach into the auditory system, and by stimulating the nerve endings there, the vagus nerve goes into action. But be gentle, and don't stick your fingers too far into your ears. 3. Get scared silly. Having someone surprise you can overwhelm the vagus nerve and put an end to...

A: If you are hydrated with normal saline and it is given too fast or too much. You will suffer congestive heart failure.

Why people do not suffer from heart cancer?

A: Cancer is most common in cells that are rapidly dividing to produce new cells. Consequently, most cancers occur in epithelial cells (carcinomas) and blood cells (leukemias and lymphomas). Epithelial cells line the lungs, intestines, breast, prostate, ovaries, bladder and uterus. These are the organs where most cancers occur. Heart cells (like skeletal muscle cells) have stopped dividing (they are called ''post-mitotic cells'' - mitosis is the process of cell division). Because they are not dividing they are at very low risk for developing cancer. For the same reason, brain cancer usually occurs in children and rarely occurs in adults. Neurons (brain cells) do not divide to make new cells in the adult brain. They rapidly divide and grow new cells in children as the brain develops. Note:...
