Ageing (British English) or aging (American English) is the accumulation of changes in a person over time.[1] Ageing in humans refers to a multidimensional process of physical, psychological, and social change. Some dimensions of ageing grow and expand over time, while others decline. Reaction time, for example, may slow with age, while knowledge of world events and wisdom may expand. Research shows that even late in life, potential exists for physical, mental, and social growth and development.[2] Ageing is an important part of all human societies reflecting the biological changes that occur, but also reflecting cultural and societal conventions. Ageing is among the largest known risk factors for most human diseases.[3] Roughly 100,000 people worldwide die each day of age-related causes.[4] Age is measured chronologically, and a person's birthday is often an important event. Population ageing is the increase in the number and proportion of older people in society. Senescence[edit] Related:  medicina & salutewikipedia 2

emorroidi (stadi) Baby boomers United States birth rate (births per 1000 population). The red segment from 1946 to 1961 is the postwar baby boom.[1] Baby boomers are people born during the demographic Post–World War II baby boom between the years 1946 and 1964. Baby boomers are associated with a rejection or redefinition of traditional values; however, many commentators have disputed the extent of that rejection, noting the widespread continuity of values with older and younger generations. As a group, they were the wealthiest, most active, and most physically fit generation up to that time, and amongst the first to grow up genuinely expecting the world to improve with time.[4] They were also the generation that received peak levels of income, therefore they could reap the benefits of abundant levels of food, apparel, retirement programs, and sometimes even "midlife crisis" products. The term Generation Jones has sometimes been used to distinguish those born from 1957 onward from the earlier Baby Boomers.[7][8]

Respiro di Kussmaul Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera. Dinamica respiratoria normale Respiro di Kussmaul: si segnala la lunga pausa tra gli atti inspiratori ed espiratori Il Respiro di Kussmaul (talvolta chiamato anche respiro grosso) è una forma di respiro patologico associato a acidosi metabolica grave, causata in particolare da chetoacidosi diabetica, o insufficienza renale. È una forma di iperventilazione compensatoria in cui l'aumento della frequenza respiratoria ha lo scopo di incrementare l'eliminazione dell'anidride carbonica per compensare la riduzione del pH del sangue. Caratteristiche[modifica | modifica sorgente] Il respiro di Kussmaul è caratterizzato da atti respiratori molto lenti, ed in particolare da una inspirazione profonda e rumorosa, a cui segue una breve apnea inspiratoria, quindi una espirazione breve e gemente, infine una pausa post-espiratoria decisamente prolungata.

File:Diadème de limpératrice Eugénie (musée du Louvre) (7166066743).jpg Distorsioni - Lesioni ai legamenti - Sintomi | Asalaser La distorsione si verifica quando un trauma indiretto fa compiere all’articolazione un movimento esagerato rispetto alla sua normale mobilità con una conseguente eccessiva sollecitazione delle strutture articolari e possibile lesione della capsula articolare e dei legamenti. Particolarmente esposte al rischio di distorsioni sono l’articolazione del ginocchio, la caviglia, il gomito, le dita e la colonna vertebrale. Si parla di distorsione di I grado, la “storta”, quando si verifica una semplice distensione dei legamenti o della capsula; il danno è minimo e possono verificarsi solo piccole lacerazioni di alcuni fasci fibrosi. Nella distorsione di II grado si ha una lacerazione parziale delle strutture capsulo-legamentose, mentre nella distorsione di III grado si verifica una rottura completa di queste strutture. Ovviamente i sintomi saranno progressivamente più severi in funzione della gravità del trauma.
