Pneumonia is very commonly found in people with poor oral health because of the extreme buildup of bacteria which is being taken in constantly (Journal of the American Geriatrics Society). Too much bacteria will cause the body to remove which causes the bacteria to buildup in the respiratory tracts, causing inflammation and fluid buildup which is pneumonia. Gingivitis is the lowest form of periodontal diseases, which is an inflammatory disease of the gums, caused from an excessive buildup of plaque on the gum line. Gingivitis causes painful inflammation, swelling, irritation, and bleeding of the gums. The inflammation from gingivitis can be detrimental to people with type two diabetes, making it even harder to keep their blood sugar levels normal (Usborne par.

High doses of radiation, such as treating the disease, in women under 30 shows the higher increased risk for breast cancer.
This cancer is the most common cause of cancer deaths, about 95% of throat cancer is diagnoses is on people 45 years. Adults younger than 45 are being diagnosed due to HPV. Many of the throat cancer cases are diagnosed in late stages, so the throat cancer has now metastasized to the lungs, so now the patient has throat and lung cancer. People should get routine check-ups from their doctors and go have a dental check-up every 6 months to a year. Common symptoms of throat cancer are: red (erythroplakia) more likely to become malignant, white (leukoplakia) sometime malignant, often become malignant, or mixed both red and white (erythroleukoplakia), malignant means very serious and dangerous : tending or likely to grow and spread in a rapid and uncontrolled way that can cause death.
There are many factors and causes to periodontitis. Some people are genetically predisposed to the disease. Their family history may have included other oral diseases or periodontal disease itself. Smoking is a large source of poor tooth health due to the chemicals that come in contact with the inside of the mouth. Smoking also decreases the amount of blood supply, making the gums malnourished.
Without proper and effective treatment the death rate is expected to triple in the next fifteen years (Turkington 9). Seventy-five percent of those infected with the virus will develop chronic hepatitis and half of those people will develop cirrhosis of the liver Due to the fact that Hepatitis C is blood-borne there are many ways a person can contract HCV, and many types of people who are more prone to it than others. The most effective mode of transmission is when an infected persons blood gets into the bloodstream of another person. HCV can only enter the bloodstream by first getting through the protective covering skin, this is called percutaneous route. Common routes of infection include needle stick accidents among healthcare workers, shared needles that are used during body piercing, injecting illegal drugs, and tattooing (Turkington 19).
The mouth is a very delicate and critical place in the human body that if it not taken good care of, it may lead to severe health problems. Te most common disease that people can develop is periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is basically an inflammatory to the plaque that collects on the teeth and under gums. This can end up in the loss of teeth and formation of harmful decay. Poor dental hygiene also contributes to the development of more harmful diseases that can lead to death.
“In 2007, U.S. health care spending was about $7,421 per resident and accounted for 16.2% of the nations GDP” (Kaiser). Whereas, Japan’s national expenditure on health is roughly 8% of the nations GDP (Kaiser). However, with such low cost, delivery of medical care would be affected in a negative way. Many physicians in Japan have witnessed hospitals overcrowding due to the fact that every patient is treated too equally and the hospital beds are occupied by less urgent cases and there are no penalties for those who over use the system (Harden). Also, lack of required physicians and nurses on duty affects the quality of care because there are only 1.6 physicians per 1,000 people and 7.8 nurses per 1,000 people whereas the average for physicians are 3.1 and nurses are 8.2 per 1,000 people (Kaiser).
The nurse to patient ratio is unrealistic in many hospitals. In most cases it is almost impossible to give each patient the true amount of detailed care they really need. This is seen in most cases where there is one nurse assigned to 16 patients and each patient requires a different level of attention. Nurses are pressed for time, forcing them to cut corners, resulting in an increase in nosocomial infections and patient deaths. “The past decade has been a unsettled time for many US hospitals and practicing nu... ... middle of paper ... ...os are associated with significantly lower mortality.
Most of the time the baby’s growth abnormalities are so severe they need to be hospitalized because of obvious failure to survive. A baby with craniofacial abnormalities can be recognized by their eyes in that they are small with exaggerated inner epicanthic folds. (Health Visitor Nov. 1981) The bridge of the nose is normally poorly developed. The ears are often large and simple in form. (Midwives Chronicle and Nursing notes) At first, when the baby is delivered, the affected infant shows signs of alcohol withdrawal; with signs that are much similar to delirium tremens in adults.
The United States, as well as the rest of the world, face critical shortages among health care professionals. According to Harakanen, al. et., (2013), one reason is because most health care professionals experience severe burnout from overworked and understaffed departments in healthcare facilities. Professional burnout is one of the key factors contributing to the shortfall in nursing, which in turn, causes hospitals and health organizations to offer health care workers large sums of money to stay with them (Harakanen, al. et., 2013).
