Bridging the gap between knowledge and action for health: case studies. Biomedical discoveries could improve people's health only if they are suited to the diverse political and social contexts, health systems and population groups. Knowledge generated through evidence-informed health policy and practice when applied to the local situation enhances the quality and efficiency of health care.

There are a number of factors that increase the risk of infection in older adults when compared to young adults. The relationships between these risk factors, whether they are comorbidities, waning immunity, or age itself, may be very complex.
They are the most common tumor of the head and neck region, and can arise from any structure with squamous cell mucosa. HNSCC is commonly categorized based on specific location, each with characteristic clinical presentation, radiographic features, staging, and differential diagnoses:. All categories of HNSCC have similar risk factors, and histopathology irrespective of specific location, and will be discussed in this article.

Deformability is an essential feature of blood cells RBCs that enables them to travel through even the smallest capillaries of the human body. Deformability is a function of i structural elements of cytoskeletal proteins, ii processes controlling intracellular ion and water handling and iii membrane surface-to-volume ratio.
Please take this quick survey to tell us about what happens after you publish a paper. Current Dermatology Reports. Antibiotic prophylaxis can be given to prevent surgical site infection or to avoid bacterial infective endocarditis and prosthetic joint infections as a result of bacteremia following surgery. Although prophylactic antibiotics are rarely warranted for clean dermatologic surgery, there is increasing support in the literature for their judicious use for selected high-risk cases.

Infections are a leading cause of death in adults over Though seniors are more susceptible to infection overall, seniors with dementia or those who are in long-term care may be at even greater risk. If we stay alert to any changes in senior health and take steps to ward off any infections that might be preventable, we can help promote greater wellness and quality of life for our loved ones in their golden years. Seniors are at greater risk for pneumonia for a variety of reasons, including changes in lung capacity, increased exposure to disease in community settings and increased susceptibility due to other conditions like cardiopulmonary disease or diabetes.
