    Collins, Charles - Staff Ride Handbook for the Lewis and Clark Expedition

    " ... The state of medical science in 1803 was not advanced much beyond what was known in medieval times. Scientifc medicine was based upon the Depletive Theory. This theory taught that, if a person was sick, there was a bad substance inside the body that had to be removed. Doctors conducted the removal by sweating, increased urination, vomiting, purging, or bloodletting. Most of the available scientifc medicines of the day were developed to cause one of those actions. ..." etc

    Gives an idea of the philosphy of medicine at the time. Didn´t change much until late 19th century.

    Malaria: Kenya, Ghana, and Malawi get first vaccine. The pilot programme starts in 2018. It sounds very promising, but because it needs to be given over several doses it sounds like it will be difficult to administer to everyone who needs it.


    The pilot will involve more than 750,000 children aged between five and 17 months. Around half will get the vaccine in order to compare the jab's real-world effectiveness. In this age group, the four doses have been shown to prevent nearly four in ten cases of malaria.

    STROKE, brain damage, Australian spider venom....

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017...strokes-world/

    Let's hope this works, several of us on this forum have suffered from stroke, it is usually unexpected, unavoidable, and most people like myself have NO IDEA of the signs of stroke, nor any clue as to the importance of immediate care in a hospital! (Minutes not hours)

    Researchers store computer operating system and short movie on DNA

    Humanity may soon generate more data than hard drives or magnetic tape can handle, a problem that has scientists turning to nature's age-old solution for information-storage—DNA.

    In a new study in Science, a pair of researchers at Columbia University and the New York Genome Center (NYGC) show that an algorithm designed for streaming video on a cellphone can unlock DNA's nearly full storage potential by squeezing more information into its four base nucleotides.

    When I was wheeled into surgery I used to try to roll over and see the floor to see if it was the conductive tile or the new floor type, my profession compelled me ( with apologies to the movie The Exorcist )

    Used to do some hospital work (the buildings)

    I was about 4 years old when a small town Doc. removed my tonsils, in a rural hospital, & I was put to sleep with ether! The bed spun around and around!

    medicine has come a long way since the era of ether, and the black conductive floor tiles on the floors of all operating rooms. I can remember when the first red conductive floor tiles came out.

    No joke. I've had male patient try to kick me (in the hospital), female client slap me (in mhmr, she made my ears ring), male patient slug me in the stomach with his fist (in a nursing home, attempting to get him to take his med.), patients curse me, pull nurses' hair, try to bite, slap, hit. It's a part of nursing. Thank God, I always just turned and walked away. & had clients /patients curse me when I wouldn't give them the med they wanted before the time ordered. (in an immigration, etc. jail /prison.) I'm so glad I'm retired.
    The funniest had to be an elderly woman who was loudly praying for God to give us all a heart attack, and for us to die. I know. Nurses, etc. have a twisted sense of humor.
