American Porphyria Foundation

Porphyria is not a single disease but a group of at least eight disorders that differ considerably from each other. A common feature in all porphyrias is the accumulation in the body of porphyrins or porphyrin precursors. Although these are normal body chemicals, they normally do not accumulate. Precisely which of these chemicals builds up depends on the type of porphyria. The terms porphyrin and porphyria are derived from the Greek word porphyrus, meaning purple. The symptoms and treatment vary significantly from one type of Porphyria to the next. Porphyria symptoms arise mostly from effects on either the nervous system or the skin. The porphyrias are rare diseases. EPP is the most common porphyria in childhood, and the one associated with the longest delays in diagnosis. **Diagnostic Testing for the Acute Porphyrias - Clarification of Testing Results** Important Update - Click to view.

APA Format for Nursing School Books: Drug Guides, Care Plans & More

Therefore, we created this list to help those in such predicaments. This page includes a list of resources commonly used by nursing students in school. Each reference is formatted in APA style and organized by reference type in order to make them easily accessible for academic compositions, school projects, nursing care plans, and other assignments. NOTE: Do NOT bullet-point your Reference Page (we have displayed it this way to make it easier for visitors to locate the citations), and remember to format the citations in a “hanging paragraph” style.
