Medicine is constantly evolving, whether it be through the discovery of a new medication at random, such as penicillin, or by extensive research trails. Most of these research trials can be very effective and beneficial for the human race. The moment a researcher starts to question what is morally and ethically correct is where t...

...ld not be inhumanly tested on. Human test trials can actually be very useful if done correctly and following moral and ethical code. The time has not yet come when we can have the best of both worlds.

Experimental – subjected to the experimental stimulus (X). 2. Control – does not undergo X An example for the purpose of Emergency Management, might be an experiment on how different warning systems are broadcasted e.g. T.V. or Radio, and how the subject response.

- The Importance of Ethical Guidelines When Conducting Psychological Research Ethical guidelines are concerns about the impact that research has on the subjects. The effects can be both beneficial and harmful and so the researcher must always think very carefully about how they ought to behave so that no harm comes to the subjects. In the 1960's the ethical aspect of research was barely considered they were accepted as a way in which research was conducted. The need to have some sort of guidelines to protect research subjects was recognised in the 1970's, but it wasn't until 1990's that the first set of ethical guidelines were published....

- Governments come and go. All the great empires of the past have not stood the test of time. When governments do not have the proper foundation with the right guiding principles, they end up failing. But Flavin Island shall not fail under the guiding principles of Thomas Aquinas. Before establishing the proper roles and responsibilities of each branch of government, the proper regime must be selected. At all costs, a tyranny must be avoided. Aquinas explains that, “tyranny is another form of government, an altogether corrupt form, and so we do not understand the laws of tyrannical regimes as any law” (95.4, p....

- ... in AMP). The reason the most people say experimentation is okay is because they don’t know the extent of it. Some scientists argue that anesthesia is administered to the animals; however, there are cases that do not need anesthesia but are still painful. If this is true, the Institutional Animal Care and use Committee should ensure anesthesia is administered to the animals; however, it still doesn’t depict from the 95% of animals that have no federal law offering any sort of protection on animal rights....

- Standardized Testing Do you like being bombarded with the stress of having to take so many tests. In 1845 the US brought standardized testing in the subjects spelling, geography, and math into public schools (Standardized Testing 1). Standardized tests were made to swiftly assess students abilities (Standardized Testing 1). The No Child Left Behind Act in 2002 mandated testing in all 50 states. In the article, “Standardized Tests,” it states that “US students slipped from 18th in the world in math in 2000 to 31st place in 2009, with a similar decline in science and no change in reading” (Use of Standardized Tests 5)....

- The use of human subjects in research is very controversial in today’s society. However, there is a certain push to do certain experiments on humans, such as clinical trials for new medications or surgical procedures and social experiments on humans. It is believed that those results are more reliable than if those studies were carried out on other ‘model’ organisms in these fields. I have picked two cases from Shamoo and Resnik (2009) that relate to different aspects of the issue of human subjects in research.... [tags: Human Subjects, Society, Controversy]

- Conclusion Overall, what happened in the experiment is that the boy test subjects did better than the girl test subjects on average. The boys had a higher overall average on the first and third test. Boy test subjects had times that clumped around 41-45 seconds. But in the boys line graph See Appendix’s 3-7) was more jagged than the girls line graph. Yet the girls had a much straighter line graph, which showed that they had a much tighter group of times. The girl’s data was centered on and around 41-45 seconds range.... [tags: Brain, Human brain, Sex, Gender]

- Because central venous catheters (CVCs), which are catheters inserted through a major vein with the tip resting near the heart, serve many purposes such as medication administration, parenteral nutrition, fluid therapy and central venous pressure measurement, their use has become increasingly common in the intensive care unit (ICU) (Polderman & Girbes, 2002). However, CVC use is associated with an increased risk for hospital-acquired infections (McLaws, Gold, King, Irwig, & Berry, 1988), with those in situ for more than six days contributing to increased infection rates compared to those in place for five days or less (McLaws & Taylor, 2003)....
