Aneurysm – Gary Ferone

An aneurysm is a very weak point in an artery and it most commonly occur in the arteries of the brain or in the body’s largest artery which is the aorta. An aortic aneurysm can be in the chest which is a thoracic aortic aneurysm or in the abdomen which is an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Most people with an aneurysm do not even know they have one and if the aneurysm grows large enough, the artery wall may become so thin that blood begins to leak into the wall of the blood vessel which is also known as dissection or out into neighbouring tissues or parts of the body.

When the brain is deprived of blood and therefore oxygen, a stroke results and an accumulation of blood from a leaking brain aneurysm can press on areas of the brain causing brain damage. When an aortic aneurysm leaks or ruptures, severe bleeding which is also known as haemorrhage may occur and this is a medical emergency that requires immediate attention. Other groups who have a high risk of developing an aneurysm include people who smoke, have a family history of aneurysm, have high blood pressure and have atherosclerosis which is blocked and weakened blood vessels, have untreated syphilis, have infections, have injuries, etc.


Leukemia – Gary Ferone

Leukemia refers to cancers of the white blood cells and normal white blood cells also known as leukocytes play a central role in fighting some of the infections. They have a very short life span and are continuously replenished in the bone marrow. The bone marrow creates some abnormal white blood cells that do not mature properly, cannot fight infection effectively and do not die like normal cells. The effects of leukemia on the body includes frequent infections from a lack of healthy white blood cells, anemia caused from a lack of healthy red blood cells, easy bruising and bleeding because of inadequate platelets, etc. Some of the risk factors for developing leukemia as an adult are being male, being white, having received chemotherapy and radiation therapy in the past, past exposure to high doses of radiation from other sources, past exposure to the high levels of solvents like benzene, having certain genetic disorders such as down syndrome, having myelodysplastic syndrome which is a type of bone marrow disorder, etc. There are mainly four types of leukemia that occur in adults are:

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia: Lymphoblast fails to mature and instead reproduce rapidly taking over the bone marrow.

Acute myeloid leukemia: It occurs when myeloid stem cells become abnormal myeloblasts that do not mature into healthy white blood cells.

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia: Abnormal B cells are produced and it is the most common type of chronic leukemia in adults.

Chronic myeloid leukemia: A genetic mutation which is also known as the philadelphia chromosome causes production of excessive numbers of myeloid cells.

Chemical Pregnancy – Gary Ferone

A chemical pregnancy or a very early miscarriage occurs when a pregnancy is lost shortly after the implantation which also results in heavy bleeding. When a fertilized egg implants in the uterus, cells that would become the placenta begin to produce the levels of the pregnancy hormone hCG and these hCG levels are high enough that they are able to be detected on a blood or a urine test and can create a positive result on a pregnancy test. However, an ultrasound would not be able to detect a gestational sac or a placenta developing and an ultrasound could not detect a heartbeat. The fertilized egg does not complete implantation and loss of pregnancy occurs which also results in bleeding about a week after your regular period were due during a chemical pregnancy.

Because chemical pregnancy occurs early in a pregnancy, women may not even realize that they have conceived when they experience a chemical pregnancy. The following may be signs of the chemical pregnancy such as heavy bleeding, menstrual like cramps, passing clots from the vagina, etc. The reasons for the miscarriage vary but most occur because the fetus is not developing normally and errors with genes or chromosomes usually occur by chance as the embryo divides and grows. Experiencing heavy bleeding around the time of your expected period soon after receiving a positive result from a pregnancy test can be a sign that you are no longer pregnant. Other causes may include the following such as inadequate uterine lining, low hormone levels, luteal phase defect, infection, etc.

High Technology Medical Gadgets

A microchip which could power a bionic eye and its system consists of a pair of glasses which is equipped with a camera that simulates a retina as well as a processor and then they convert those images into electrical signals which can be sent to the brain through the microchip. An electrical stimulator could let patients flip the off switch on migraines and the gadget emits the electrical signals which heads off the pain messages sent to the brain implanted under the skin and this device stimulates the occipital nerve which connects with the parts of the skull that are pain sensitive.

A major blood clot typically requires a surgery by the scalpel and a tiny injectable device could be sent through the blood stream to fix the problem incision free. An edible sensor is a device which can be swallowed in the capsule and is activated by the stomach fluid and sends some signals to a doctor the time of ingestion as well as other vitals such as the heart rate. A bandage with a microvascular stamp is a smattering of the living cells which delivers the growth factors to the damaged tissues. It could also eventually help patients with severe injuries rebuild the entire vascular networks by controlling the spacing of the new blood vessels.

Useful Tips to Improve Memory by Gary Ferone

Here are some tips which will help one in improving the memory are:

  • Link the list: Try to remember several things as well as ideas at once by linking them together in the mind.
  • Personalize the list: Organize the lists into short, manageable sections and also try to connect the items to something that is easier for one to remember.
  • Create an acronym: Train the brain to remember items in a specific sequence by creating a word to represent the objects.
  • Create a visual image: Visualize an object that will help remind you in the future, if one is trying to remember someone’s name.
  • Focus on what one is trying to remember: Spending a few moments actively processing the thoughts can make it very much easier to recall what one need to remember in the future.
  • Use all the senses to help improve the memory: Verbally list all the appointments out loud will help solidify the dates in the mind.
  • Write it down: Simply writing the information down will help the brain retain it even if one does not actually use the list or a note to remind of an appointment.
  • Be positive: Don’t doubt yourself; our brains can often do more than we realize.

Improving Brain Function – Gary Ferone

Exercise builds new brain cells and a process which is known as neurogenesis was recently discovered that demonstrated that the new brain cells are continuously being made as well as stored. One third of the neurons in the hippo campus, the area of the brain are involved in forming, organizing and storing memories which are regularly renewed throughout the life.


Experiences and learning strengthened these new neurons which cause them to branch out and make new connections and as the neurons were utilized, they developed even more connections and became stronger. Our brains are made up of billions of connections and the more neurons we have the bigger our brains and the better our cognitive functioning and exercise contribute to the growing of new neurons.

The body’s fuel which is derived from our food is digested and moved into the blood stream, it needs to be converted into energy. Within each cell are thousands of smaller molecules called mitochondria which are also known as the cells’ energy factories and they turn the glucose into a substance called adenosine triphosphate. Exercise also produces proteins which travel through the blood stream and in the brain playing a critical role in our highest thought processes.
