Gorakhnath has been For studies of logic and metaphysics Shankara’s described as the most inﬂuential Indian since work is highly recommended. Ramakrishna Paramhansa As in the Yoga-Sutra, there is no mention of an Ramakrishna Paramhansa (1836–86) was a scholar author. He did not found any mantras, prayers, and psalms dealing with religious organization or claim to know a new path to salva- ceremony and ritual. He grew to realize that different religions lead Sama-Veda, Yajur-Veda, and Artharva-Veda. He was known to say, “As many According to the introduction in the book’s trans- faiths, so many paths” and “Man’s upliftment is the lation by Swami Paramananda, these scriptures main goal in life.

Well, we will have to work philosophical schools of Vedanta, which is based pri- hard and we must succeed. Adi Shankara (also known as Samkara), one of Swami Vivekananda India’s greatest sages, wrote Advaita Vedanta, the When Swami Vivekananda was born, January 12, Vedanta treatise, among other texts. He became a disciple of Sri Rama- eternal which is beyond the pale of the sense krishna Paramhansa, who renamed him Swami which his reason cannot grasp.

Also known as the Gita, it is part of the century and provided the ﬁrst textual evidence of Mahabharata (Great India), a religious classic of asanas.

It can lead to hypovolemic shock and can significantly reduce vital capacity if it is not recognized buy methotrexate 2.5 mg online. Hemorrhage from injured lung parenchyma is the most common cause of hemothorax cheap 2.5mg methotrexate with visa, but this tends to be self-limiting unless there is a major laceration to the parenchyma. A hemothorax is treated with chest thoracostomy (chest tube) that is generally placed in the fourth or fifth intercostal space at the anterior or midaxillary line, over the superior portion of the rib. The tube should be directed superior and posterior to allow it to drain blood from the dependent portions of the chest. Indications for thoracotomy include: • Initial chest tube drainage of 1000 to 1500 cc of blood (a and b). In general, if the patient remains hemodynamically unstable after 40 cc/kg of crystal- loid administration (approximately 2-3 L), then a blood transfusion should be started. Fully cross-matched blood is preferable; however, this is generally not available in the early resuscitation period. Therefore, type- specific blood (type O, Rh-negative or type O, Rh-positive) is a safe alternative and is usually ready within 5 to 15 minutes. Type O, Rh-negative blood is typically reserved for women in their childbearing years to prevent Rh sensitization. Type O, Rh-positive blood can be given to all men and women beyond their childbearing years. Epinephrine is used if the patient is in cardiopulmonary arrest and no longer has a pulse. If the patient remains hypotensive despite resuscitation, then definitive measures need to take place, such as an exploratory laparo- tomy to stop the hemorrhage. It is important to focus the primary examination on the patient and evaluate the fetus in the secondary examination. Cardiotocographic observation of the viable fetus is recommended for a minimum of 4 hours to detect any intrauterine pathology. The minimum should be extended to 24 hours if, at any time during the first 4 hours, there are more than three uterine contractions per hour, persistent uterine tenderness, a non-reassuring fetal monitor strip, vaginal bleeding, rupture of the membranes, or any serious maternal injury is present. Shielding of the uterus in head and chest scans allows for an acceptable radiation exposure level. The mother with no obvious abdominal injury or even normal laboratory values still requires monitoring. Because of the central location of the disk herniation, symptoms are often bilateral and involve leg pain, saddle anes- thesia, and impaired bowel and bladder function (retention or inconti- nence). On examination, patients may exhibit loss of rectal tone and display other motor and sensory losses in the lower extremities. Patients, however, should not exhibit altered bowel and bladder function, or have decreased rectal tone. If so, the condition is likely cauda equina syndrome and is a neurologic emergency. Hyperventilation is a temporary maneuver and should only be used for a brief period of time during the acute resuscitation and only in patients demonstrating neuro- logic deterioration. Mannitol has the addi- tional benefit of expanding volume, initially reducing hypotension, and improving the blood’s oxygen-carrying capacity. Secondary to the gunshot, air has entered the pleural space, sec- ondary to the gunshot, and caused the right lung to collapse. This air cannot escape and pressure continues to increase, pushing the right lung into the mediastinum, causing the trachea to shift to the left. If this process is not cor- rected, venous return and cardiac output can be compromised and the patient will die. Classic symptoms of tension pneumothorax include dyspnea, tachypnea, tracheal deviation to the uninjured side, absent breath sounds on the injured side, and hypotension. Air should come out of the catheter and the patient’s clinical con- dition should improve. While intubation (b) is generally helpful for patients in respiratory distress, it can be dangerous in the setting of a tension pneumothorax. Positive pressure ventilation worsens the tension pneumothorax leading to further cardio- vascular compromise. This patient will likely require surgical management and the surgical team (d) should be called; however, needle decompression and tube thoracostomy are core emergency medicine skills and should be performed immediately by the emergency physician. On physical examination, he has tenderness to palpation in the mid-thoracic spine, and decreased strength in the upper extremities bilaterally, with nor- mal range of motion. Ordinarily, the patient is high functioning: she is ambulatory, cooks for herself, and walks on a treadmill 30 minutes a day. On examination, the patient has dry mucous membranes, but is otherwise unremarkable. Which of the following is the next most appropriate course of action to manage this patient with early-goal-directed therapy? Physical examination reveals a tender left testicle with a firm nodu- larity on the posterolateral aspect of the testicle.
