What is TICU ?
Trauma Intensive Care
Trauma intensive care unit is specifically for patients who have suffered penetrating or explicit trauma. These units are only found in hospitals with trauma certificates and must maintain higher levels of certificates. Nurses and medical staff working in a trauma unit are highly trained in cases of trauma and most of them have additional credentials. Injuries such as injuries caused by car accidents, fights, gunshots and crashes are treated in TICU.

What is FCD ?
FibroCystic Disease
Mammary fibrocystic changes or mammary fibrocystic disease are a state of mammary tissue that affects about 30 to 60% of women. This disease is bumps , which can sometimes cause discomfort, and often periodically in connection with the effects of the hormone of the menstrual cycle is characterized. The name, the more this complication include mastitis, chronic cystic (English: chronic cystic mastitis) and dysplasia job (English: mammary dysplasia) can be. Because a disorder is very common, some authors have argued that it should be "disease" called, while others feel that the criteria for a disease, there is. Of course, this is not a classic Fermi disease of mastitis (inflammation of the breast).
< br>most women have fibrocystic changes and have no symptoms needing treatment, but close follow-up may be recommended. Breast fibrocystic disease is very common in women. 30% to 40% of women from puberty to 50 years of age suffer from this complication. Since the disease is very common, it is no longer regarded as a disease and there is usually no concern about it. This disease frequently after menopause would be removed (unless the hormone therapy with estrogen done)

condition changes, fibrocystic breast tissue, washcloth-like and lumpy in the breast characterized. These masses are soft and with smooth edges and are usually freely moved according to adjacent structures. Bumps can sometimes be hidden by irregularities in the breast that are associated with conditions. The protrusions are often manifested in the upper part, the outer part of the breast (closest to the armpit). Women with fibrocystic changes may experience pain in their breast on an ongoing or intermittent basis. Breasts and nipples may be itchy during this state.

symptoms are tied with periodic trends close to the menstrual cycle. These symptoms tend to soar before each period and then decrease. The breast may feel full and swollen at the height of the peak. No complications and consequences associated with lactation have been discovered in this disease. There is pain in the whole breast, especially just before the onset of menstruation. Lumps are usually present in both breasts. There may be only one mass, but there are usually several mass. These masses are often enlarged before the habit and shrink after it....

Also, providing neonatal needs, prevention of infection, proper nutrition, allowing easy and quick access to specialized tools and equipment in this section....
What is SV ?
Stroke Volume
In cardiovascular physiology, stroke volume (SV) is the volume of blood pumped from the left ventricle per beat. Stroke volume is calculated using measurements of ventricle volumes from an echocardiogram and subtracting the volume of the blood in the ventricle at the end of a beat (called end-systolic volume) from the volume of blood just prior to the beat (called end-diastolic volume). The term stroke volume can apply to each of the two ventricles of the heart, although it usually refers to the left ventricle. The stroke volumes for each ventricle are generally equal, both being approximately 70 mL in a healthy 70-kg man.

Stroke volume is an important determinant of cardiac output, which is the product of stroke volume and heart rate and is also used to calculate ejection fraction, which is stroke volume divided by end-diastolic volume. Because stroke volume decreases in certain conditions and disease states, stroke volume itself correlates with cardiac function....
What is HPV ?
Hypoxic Pulmonary Vasoconstriction
Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV), also known as the Euler-Liljestrand mechanism, is a physiological phenomenon in which small pulmonary arteries constrict in the presence of alveolar hypoxia (low oxygen levels). By redirecting blood flow from poorly-ventilated lung regions to well-ventilated lung regions, HPV is thought to be the primary mechanism underlying ventilation/perfusion matching....
