Save Lives Every Day Through Blood Transfusions

blood

While humanity is well aware of the universal existence of blood transfusions, make note of a few details that may augment life threatening situations. Did you know that blood can be broken down into its components during the transfusion and only the platelets or plasma could be transfused besides whole blood? Which diseases would require whole blood? Have you heard of apheresis? Did you know that you can donate blood for your own use like posting a letter to yourself?

Accidents when blood is lost or surgery that is an exercise in bloodletting would require such a replacement of the lost precious liquid, the elixir of life that is the single most precious commodity without which life cannot exist. The blood from the donor is transfused into the recipient’s body to help certain conditions. Can infections occur though blood? They can but the chances are so small that they hardly exist. Yet screening processes do take place like for HIV. The safest blood transfusions then would be to receive your own blood if you are anticipating an elective surgery for instance. But then preparations need to be done well in advance and not all are eligible.

Blood banks do a noble social service all right by collecting blood donations often voluntary and storing it for emergency use. The blood bank collects tests and stores the blood, ready for use. The problem is that blood does not have a long shelf life.  Blood transfusions are thus sometimes a hit and miss story with frantic searches for the matching blood type when the bad times actually occur. The O blood group is recognized as the universal donor that is safe to transfuse to anybody. A vast system does exist of blood banks across the spectrum of society with people encouraged to donate blood that is a simple, safe procedure. Registrations online indicate the contact details of potential donors and their blood groups to contact during emergencies.

While bloody nightmares are not really necessary with the extreme care provided by modern medical science, it would help to be familiar with the facts. If you happen to face such a situation, beware of fever and chills, itching or shortness of breath during the transfusion. The medical staff should be informed immediately. The two types of blood transfusions are with autologous blood and donor blood. Strange as it may sound, autologous blood means the receiving of your own blood. How does that happen? In this case, you would donate your blood well before the planned surgery. Since blood is lost during surgery, your own blood gets recycled into your body. Smart, isn’t it and the safest way to receive blood. Recycling your blood during surgery could take place too. Blood lost during surgery could be recycled back after surgery. Sometimes, blood is removed before surgery and replaced by IV fluids with the blood returned later.

Instead of transfusing the whole blood that is generally accepted to be the norm, only the platelets or plasma could be transfused too. Apheresis indicates the collection of your own platelets and plasma that are returned to the body later when you need them.  Red Blood Cells or hemoglobin is most commonly used during blood transfusions since they carry oxygen across the body spectrum and create energy. In anemia or after surgery and injury, a person would require RBC transfusion. Platelets aid clotting and certain illnesses result in the loss of the clotting factor. Hemophilia, though a rare disease, is one condition besides injury and internal bleeding that would require platelets alone. Plasma is indicated if you suffer from burns, liver failure or serious infection. What is plasma? The liquid part of the blood that contains a lot of stuff: vitamins, cholesterol, sugar, hormones, proteins, sodium and many more…

Which blood type do you possess?

A, B and O may be on everybody’s lips and medical documents but let us get a  wider perspective on the system of blood classification that concerns the life giving fluid. Each adult possesses 6 pints of it and medical science has developed the system of transfusions to save countless lives across the globe.  What are the factors that determine blood types? How is it decided? Is it inherited or otherwise? Like many other aspects of our lives and existence, the different blood types are a perpetual mystery though we talk about them all the time and particularly in those dreaded moments.

Different blood types are often commonly referred to as blood groups. The classification derives from the red blood cells on the surface of which is found inherited antigenic materials. Depending upon the blood type, these substances could occur in the form of proteins or carbohydrates, glycoproteins or glycolipids. Both parents contribute to the blood type. Internationally, as many as 33 blood groups are accepted. Every child has heard the most common ABO and the RhD antigen. The combination of a letter with the plus or minus sign indicates the presence or absence of the RhD status. That may come as a surprise because we had imagined that essentially blood is the same. That is true in the sense that the blood of a white, black or yellow individual would all contain RBCs, platelets and plasma with their different constituents. Yet some little aspects differ and the knowledge would help when it comes to blood transfusions that could save lives in emergencies.

The four major different blood types are indicated by the presence or absence of antigens and antibodies. Group A possesses the A antigen on the red cells and B antibody in plasma. Group B has B antigen on red cells and A antibody in the plasma. Group AB possesses both A and B antigens on red cells and neither antibody in plasma. Group O has neither antigen on red cells but both A and B antibodies are present on the plasma. Group O referred to as the universal donor can donate RBCs to any blood group. Group A donates RBCs to both A and AB. Similarly, Group B donates to B and AB. Group AB can donate to ABs and receives from any group! While it may all sound rather mysterious, medical facts cannot be denied. What would happen if mismatching blood is transfused? An immune response would occur to attack the mismatched blood as if they were aliens.

If we consider the universal prevalence of the eight different blood types , O+, A+ and B+ are the most commonly found across the different racial groups. For the distribution of O+, Caucasians have 37%, African American 47%, Hispanic 53% and Asians have 30%. The A+ distribution includes 33% of Caucasians, 24% of African American, 29% of Hispanics and 27% of Asians. The B+ type is found in 9% of Caucasians, 18% of African American, 9% of Hispanics and 25% of Asians. The other four chief groups comprising of O-, A-, B- and AB- have comparatively lesser distribution across all the major racial groups, mostly in single digits or in decimal fractions.

Yet all is not so simple either with the different blood types!  Some rare blood does exist like the Oh in Bombay, India which is found in one in 7600 people in Bombay, also called Mumbai. The blood group is absent in other parts of the country. A rare blood group is found in 1 in 1000 people. Would you expect a pregnant woman to carry a fetus with a different blood group? It happens and the mother forms antibodies that is sometimes lethal for the fetus. Though one would be expected to have the same blood group through life, the blood group sometimes changes because of disease. Finally, certain blood types are associated with particular disease.

Bestow The Gift Of Life Through Blood Donation

blood20

The idea of blood donation for the humanitarian propose of saving lives has become part of our inherited culture. Besides, it takes little effort to donate a pint of blood with no associated health risk for the donor. Yet routine procedures exist to screen for possible diseases the blood may carry and transmit to the recipient like HIV and viral hepatitis but chances of infection are very slim indeed. Why are we so much attracted to the blood and its transfusion to save lives? Well, blood is the very stuff of life and we would not be living otherwise. In spite of so many synthetic this and that, no technology could succeed in replacing that precious component that makes up 8% of the body.

So you have decided to donate blood like everybody else? A noble thought no doubt and quite achievable in fact once in 56 days if it is whole blood, more often if it concerns platelets and plasma alone, maybe 7 days. To consider that each donation could save three lives is quite an encouragement especially when traffic accidents and disease take a heavy toll on human lives each day. If we were to consider world figures, that would be a large number of lives lost each day. Besides, blood donation does not result in a very long shelf life for the blood and supplies need to be replenished with a steady stream of donors. What would happen during war or a natural disaster? Blood banks have taken the responsibility of ensuring that supply as best they can. Potential donors do register online and mention their blood groups so that they can be summoned in an emergency.

William Harvey and Karl Landsteiner made it all possible, the former in 1628 discovering the circulation of blood and the latter that discovered blood groups in 1901.  Blood donation today has become a shared duty. “Safe blood for saving mothers” was the profound message for World Blood Donor Day on 14 June 2014. One wonders if the blood you donate is essentially paid for if it is all that valuable a resource that can bring life to the dying. While it would seem that a majority of donors do not receive compensation especially in the developed countries, some countries do follow a procedure of granting remuneration. And why not if it is a third world country where incomes are scarce and a section of the society does not know where the next meal would come from?

Besides the danger that the donated bloods mighty carry potential disease, the health of the donor needs to be considered. The donor should be feeling well and in good condition. Temperature, blood pressure and pulse would be checked. Otherwise there is no cause to worry regarding the simple and safe process of blood donation. Just like in the process of injections, a sterile needle would be used and then discarded. How long would the process take? Maybe ten minutes and then you say goodbye to the blood donation center.

There is no need for worry concerning your own blood stock either. Consider the fact that an average body contains 10 pints of blood. The usual blood donation consists of one pint. The blood manufacturing process is constantly taking place in the body and so the pint gets replenished somewhat like the growth of hair and nails. The donated blood is screened for disease after which it is stored in the blood bank if not immediately used to save human life. Emergency needs sometimes arise but the blood groups should match. Make it your life vision to save lives.

Can Fashion Designing become your specialty?

Coco Chanel and Calvin Klein are your models perhaps! What is it that it takes to succeed in the spectacular world of fashion? Why are you interested in a fashion career? Are you getting carried away by the sensational cat walks on FTV? Maybe you experience a mundane desire to get rich. Perhaps you want to put your own country or region on the global fashion scenario! Ethnic cultures certainly have infinite untapped resources to touch the sky.

There are those who believe that fashions are for the rich. In a sense, yes, but nothing could be further from the truth in the technologically advanced world of ours. Little things like key chains require moulds and designs. Every little accessory has been researched and designed for mass production. Computerization rules everywhere and the sky is the limit for the designing game.

Shall we say that imagination, creativity and technology combine to produce cutting edge fashions that rule everywhere under the sun? Fashions stare out of shop window mannequins as you take the evening walk. Parties and social events expose you to myriad fashions.  We are almost forgetting those mighty international fashion weeks! They set the styles and give rise to concepts of dressing that would rule until the next fashion event introduces new trends to start all over again.

If you are getting dominated by artificiality, shall we get some invigorating ideas out of nature? Does fashion exist naturally? We can bet it does though there may not exist a fashion industry! Bird feathers for instance were borrowed by native Red Indians to adorn themselves. Certainly a lot of delightful lessons remain to be learnt from radiant bird plumage like the astounding peacock feathers.  Sad it is that animal skins should make up an important segment of our fashionable warm clothing like the mink coat.

How did Coco Chanel and Calvin Klein succeed and become immortal fashionistas? Both were artistic and ambitious and grew high from small beginnings to create masterpieces of dresses like the little black suits and sportswear.

Art certainly has a meeting ground with fashion. Are you artistically inclined? How do you know? Do you like art? Can you draw and paint? Perhaps you are attracted to art and design over computer software? We cannot do without technology of course in the urban scenario of today. Come to think of it, the fashion industry exists primarily in the urban and semi urban areas where large populations provide a commercial market. Rural settings may not contain the verve and the motivation to run a fashion industry.

4th-Fashion-designing

Ritu Beri or Rohit Bal may have influenced your fashion dreams in the Indian context.  The staid traditionalism of India is now hopefully a thing of the past. Indians compete on the world stage in almost every discipline like the software industry. Indian writers have excelled in English, primarily a foreign language. Indian entrepreneurs are making it big in western surroundings on an epic scale.

The traditional Indian motifs and dresses contain yet untapped wealth. They could be molded into winning designer wear for the international market. Tiring of excessive modernization, it would be wise to start digging at the roots once again. Many would wish to go back to nature after the immense artificiality of the urban jungle. Yet fashions do not exist at the village roots. The fashion industry is located at the high tech centers internationally. Sophistication, style and elegance would be fundamentals in an outgoing lifestyle. Most fashion design success stories commenced with modest beginnings of course.

Why not opt for the Jewellery Design course?

While dress is often cited as the hallmark of a person, jewellery also makes valid style statements and identifies the unique individual in terms of taste and dignity. The vast seemingly complex Indian Jewellery Design Industry beckons. Promises of rewarding careers of great accomplishment and creative satisfaction wait creative individuals.

India may be termed the home of jewellery since time immemorial. Soaked in history and mythology, every little event or function is quite dependent upon jewellery in the intrinsic native traditions. Stepping into the seemingly magical 21st century world, what is the jewellery scenario like? With skyrocketing prices of gold and demand endlessly escalating, designer jewellery is the norm.

The exotic world of high fashion jewellery presents daring challenges of creativity and design. Infinite success waits for the dedicated worker like the artisans of the past who worked humbly in the background. Designers of contemporary jewellery nowadays would work in the limelight amidst the international exposure. Let us not be carried away by sensationalism but be realistic in approaches that are attainable.

Besides the traditional gold and silver along with diamonds, pearls and other precious stones, modern science has added several more lustrous materials. Platinum, titanium, zirconium, tungsten and even carbon fiber in endless combinations now rage on in the new world jewellery scenario. Demand constantly escalates in eternal configurations. Do you realize the infinite opportunities that exist for a jewellery designer? Entrepreneurship in smaller or larger ways is quite possible either as a brand ambassador or as an independent designer of jewellery.

We cannot help remembering the traditional handcrafted wire and beaded jewellery that still exists along with the glossy sophistication that has become synonymous with the jewellery industry. Many would think that computer aided designs would solve most problems.

3

If the basic jewellery consists of rings, bracelets, pendants, earrings and necklaces besides a world of accessories, design creation is the challenge. Designs seem to be infinite indeed at the various city outlets with mind blowing creations. What are their secrets of success? Besides motivation, interest and creativity, scientific knowledge of metals and precious stones would be crucial to work with feeling. After all, feeling is the greatest aspect of jewellery and the source of their greatest values and traditions. The personal touch would be instrumental in spite of all the mass production.

2

Knowledge of metallurgy and gemology would be at the heart of the course to set the scene to realize your jewellery design ambitions. While the public gazes in admiration at the finished jewellery that decorates plush mall windows, you would be concerned with the manufacturing processes, the metals, the stones and the colours. Clients have their specific requirements and designing costume jewellery can be delicate business.

The marketing aspect that is purely business oriented through advertising and media campaigns would be next on the agenda. Marketing is when the real world of business connects with the imagination that crafted the jewellery. When designer collections are exhibited at palatial jewellery stores, it would be a dream come true situation for the novice who has realised a world of dreams.

So,combining the traditional approaches with computer based design, the journey would be a magnificent exercise in imagination and creativity aided by the mystique of technology. After projects are submitted and examinations successfully overcome, you are ready to start on a new way of life as a jewellery designer!

At under $300, HT-S3500 is undoubtedly the best in its class and many claim that it is the Best home theater system with better sound fidelity even when compared to more expensive systems manufactured by international companies.

Have you not noticed that headphones invariably provide super sound quality? The sound suffers when played through a home theater system because the high frequency bits will not play. Advanced Music Optimizer remedies the problem and provides better quality of compressed audio signals along with the loudness correction feature.

Connectivity and Performance

What about the four HDMIs? They provide inputs for Blue Ray Disc Players, cable/satellite tuners, gaming consoles like Xbox, PlayStation and 3D games too.

When to stop loss in forex

Traders in foreign exchange currency pairs are exposed to losses when markets do not follow predicted patterns. Currency markets are essentially volatile.  Some traders work on a daily short term basis and are not willing to undertake long term investments which may carry greater risks but can potentially generate larger profits.  Computerization and the online business have become great allies in the forex trade. Computers generate charts filled with valuable market data and can automatically reveal market trends.

Who is the successful forex trader?

The novice trader must be wary. Traders cannot be greedy for monetary profit but must work in a cold, calculating manner. The skills of trading take time to develop and experience is usually a story of highs and lows or a mixture of profits and losses. Predicting the rise and fall of currencies is the major concern. Trends may suddenly change due to disruptions in the normal way of life. Technical analysis procedures make detailed studies of past events in the history of hundreds of years of trade. The golden rules to remember are that history often repeats itself but past market patterns do not provide certainty of future market trends. Sudden changes in social and political situations or changes in banking policies and interest rates could impact market trends substantially.

What is Stop Loss?

Is there a method to protect against financial loss when the risk becomes excessive? All organizations maintain safety standards and policies like fire safety and disaster management exercises take place throughout the world and particularly in earthquake and flood prone areas like the Himalayas and Eastern India. Such policies prepare against possible emergencies through rigorous training and physical infrastructure. Financial markets too need a safeguard to protect against sudden market fluctuations because of certain factors like changes of government policy, new financial rules, festivals, wars and communal problems.

Traders protect their interests with the Stop Loss mechanism that may be achieved electronically according to certain settings online or even manually when the trader has to intervene. The anticipated trends based on which the trader had bought and sold currencies may not always turn out to be true as forecast. The Stop Loss protects against volatile changes that may go against the trader’s interests. A trader must set up boundaries just like playing games that always observe fixed boundaries.

Forex markets are prone to high leverage which means that gains can multiply and losses too. The stop and limit orders effectively shield investors against unforeseen risks like a safety valve. The stop order indicates the price at which the trader wishes to buy or sell. The limit order prescribes the minimum and maximum prices for buying or selling.

The crucial time factor

Let us consider the time element which is so much allied to the money question in modern times. Time being money is the common idea floated around everywhere especially in regard to business ventures. Day traders and Swing traders are short term investors depending upon the whims of the market regarding currency pairs. The time stop applies here like for the day trader who is not willing to take on the risks that may occur during the night. The day trader fixes the stop just outside the daily range of the currency pair invested upon. The investment is protected if the market were to move in a retrograde position. The swing trader places the stop loss outside twice or thrice the normal daily range. The position trader on the other hand holds long term investments of months or years and has planned the investment according to the favorable conditions that may exist. Social, political and economic events could impact the fortunes of the financial market and must be adequately prepared for if known in advance like bank announcements.

The purpose is to stop the trading when the market moves in the opposite direction that would be unprofitable to your investment. Markets are often unpredictable and one cannot be too sure of the outcomes. Stop losses protect against the unseen and the unknown. A lot of judgment would be required to impose effective stops. If losses recur, the stops were not properly made. The stops should not be too far out either since trading would be hit. Reasonable stops that may need periodic changes according to market demands may ensure adequate profits for the trader.

Three stop loss strategies in forex

Though many kinds of stop loss policies exist, three common methods are as follows:

Equity stop is the wise policy when the trader is not familiar with technical analysis. The stop is placed based on the money factor. Such a policy does not require stops to be often changed and peace of mind exists because loss cannot extend beyond the set limit. In other words, the trader is capable of undergoing a certain amount of loss. The trader may decide upon a certain limit to the loss according to a percentage of the investment and impose the stop accordingly. As an example, the trader may be willing to undergo one percent of loss and fixes the pips accordingly.

Technical stop: Technical indicators often provide the basis for entry and exit. Moving average crossovers may provide the basis for investing and consequently the time to exit would be when the moving averages cross again in the pair of currencies. Support and resistance levels are determined by such moving averages besides other indicators like Fibonacci. Psychological levels are also used to place stops. Trailing stops mean that the stop is dependent upon the movement of the currency pair.

Volatility stop: The instability of currency pairs may vary during a day’s trading, some currency pairs being more volatile. While the euro versus the pound is 90 pips, the pound versus yen is 255 pips. Study of the Average True Range helps to decide where the stop needs to be placed. Smaller ATRs would require closer stops while higher ATRs would be suitable for wide stops. The day’s price chart also helps to understand the swings of the currency values.

The ideal trading strategy

The perfect trader may not exist since every trader’s story is a series of profits and losses.
