The digestive system

  1. 1. THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM <ul><li>Being physically, mentally, spiritually and psychologically healthy is of prime importance in life. Being ill or not feeling well can drastically affect your work. Obviously, if you feel physically, spiritually, psychologically and mentally healthy, you can be more productive and you can enjoy your life simultaneously </li></ul>
  2. 2. What is colonoscopy? Colonoscopy is a procedure used to see inside the colon and rectum. A flexible fiberscope that is passed through the anus, rectum and colon used to examine the upper portion of the colon. The procedure is used to look for early signs of colorectal cancer and can help doctors diagnose unexplained changes in bowel habits, abdominal pain, bleeding from the anus, and weight loss.

  5. 5. choledocholithotripsy
  6. 6. A blood test to determine the amount of waste product bilirubin in the blood stream. Elevated levels indicates liver disease
  7. 7. SERUM BILIRUBIN <ul><li>Bilirubin is the main bile pigment that is formed from the breakdown of heme in red blood cells. The broken down heme travels to the liver, where it is secreted into the bile by the liver. Normally, a small amount of bilirubin circulates in the blood. Serum bilirubin is considered a true test of liver function, as it reflects the liver's ability to take up, process, and secrete bilirubin into the bile. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Removing or pulling of teeth. A tooth extraction, as a rule, is the most traumatic dental appointment there is. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.
