🌟El cerebro está constituido por dos mitades, la mitad derecha llamada hemisferio derecho y la mitad izquierda llamada hemisferio izquierdo.
Ambos hemisferios están conectados entre sí por una estructura denominada Cuerpo Calloso, formado por millones de fibras nerviosas que recorren todo el cerebro.
Gracias a estas fibras, los dos hemisferios están continuamente conectados.
Cada hemisferio está especializado en funciones diferentes, de ahí que uno de los aspectos fundamentales en la organización del cerebro lo constituyan las diferencias funcionales que existen entre los dos hemisferios, ya que se ha descubierto que cada uno de ellos está especializado en conductas distintas.
Conviene saber también, que existe una relación invertida entre los dos hemisferios y nuestro cuerpo. Por consiguiente, el hemisferio derecho se encarga de coordinar el movimiento de la parte izquierda de nuestro cuerpo, y el hemisferio izquierdo coordina la parte derecha🌟. #neuro#cerebro#medlife#student#hemisferios#medicine

Did you see the lā‘au moon at sunrise? Mahina already looked very much like a Lā‘aukūlua moon. Along with shape, mahina rising and setting time also plays a role in shaping mahina "names" (which are more or less descriptions of what mahina is doing). Tonight another lā‘au moon will rise. This time at around 11:08pm O‘ahu time. Other islands will begin to see mahina in the same general time range.
In a presentation/talk story at Kawaiwai Collective this morning a basic layout of ancient O‘ahu community models was explained. Very matriarchal, very ‘ohana and hana‘i focused and each region had their own unique way of relating to ‘āina, the Akua and Ke Akua. A very safe, nurturing, and embracing era of time. This was normal, foundation-level, classical Hawai‘i nei that uncle Alex Pua‘a of Molokai describes as the ‘ohana era.
Uncle John Ka‘imikaua would explain that the foundation of "thinking" occurred in the na‘au, not the intellect. To awaken this era is simply to strengthen the na‘au. There are aspects to the timing of the traditional community that are extremely wahine-centric. Menses, pregnancy, birth and motherhood determine the timing of all connected to her. In this model kāne would typically be the "do-ers" of the kuleana that was most physically rigorous. Many wahine are feeling the weight lifting from a modern/western social model that operates with an excessive amount of male orientated logic. Perhaps in a few generations a na‘au centered, wahine designed social model will be normal:)
Coming up... Looking into the possibility of having a couples hui for people either currently in relationships or single. Also a three-cycle series of nā kaulana mahina hui with @uluaelearningcenter. A hui/workshop with @pohala_hawaiian_botanicals and @xxkayla_h on Maui in mid-march. Flyers coming soon. ○

O objetivo da dosimetria pessoal é determinar a exposição de radiação recebida pelo usuário em um determinado período de tempo. *A sua utilização é exigida para operadores de equipamentos emissores de radiação em Clínicas Radiológicas tanto Odontológicas como Médicas, Indústrias, Laboratórios, etc...
*radiação ionizante absorvida fora dos limites admissíveis, poderá acarretar danos biológicos e portanto deve ser precisamente monitorada.
*O dosímetro individual é a maneira mais utilizada para detectar exposições em operadores, pois são compostas de pastilhas sensíveis a radiação ionizante e permite avaliar se a dose de radiação está ou não abaixo dos níveis de restrição.
*De acordo com a legislação vigente, "Todo indivíduo que trabalha com radiação ionizante deve usar, durante a sua jornada de trabalho e enquanto permanecer em área controlada, dosímetro individual de leitura indireta, trocado mensalmente”.
🐰RABBITS HANDLING part 1🐰
In this post I will be taking about the behavior, environmental needs of rabbits and stress factors. But first, very important 😂 rabbits aren’t rodents BUT lagomorph because they have a second pair of superior incisive 🦷. And the scientific name is: Oryctolagus cuniculus . 🐇 ETHOLOGY: .
- rabbits are social animals and need to be at least two individuals . They are more active during the night 🌙 and really lazy during the day 💤 .
- They are very territorial and especially with members of the same gender. This is another reason why it is important to spay them. Males during fight can mutilate and castrate each other ⚠️ .
- Rabbits are grazing hay 70% of the time .
. 🌱 🐇 ENVIRONMENT: .
- rabbits are very active and need to move a lot. This is why cages are not advised ❌ .
- It is better for them to live in parks or freely. Yes rabbit can be clean and litter-trained, like a cat 🐈. But it is important to protect the flat, because they love chewing things like cables and headphones 🎧 (happened to mine 🙄)
- You can add toys like wooden balls, toilet paper carton full of hay (be inventive 😜), tunnels...
. 🐇 STRESS: rabbits are preys so they tend to be stressed very easily. Factors of stress:
- If they are in a small cage: causes frustration, anxiety...
- Environnemental changes
- Brutal manipulation .
- Noise and unusual smells (other animals)
- Temperature (optimal: 15-20 Celsius degrees) rabbit tolerate better lower temperatures and suffer when the weather is too hot 🥵 .
- Here are some clinical signs of stress: immobility, trying to hide, rapid breathing, intensive grooming, destruction etc .
I hope you learnt something 🤗 In the next post I’ll be talking about their diet and special care ☺️
Anyone working with exotic animals or thinking in working with them? 🐇🐀🦉🐢🦜🦔🐿
Did you know Shaquille O’Neal suffers from Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis also known as OA, is the most common form of joint pain and limited joint function. It affects over 25 million adults in the United States and $128 billion per year are spent on treating it. Osteoarthritis is associated with the deterioration of the cartilage that lines the bones in a joint. The cartilage serves as a means providing cushioning and reducing friction between the bones of a joint. As a result, bones may rub against each other causing friction leading to pain and joint mobility limitation.
OA can occur in almost any joint, however it commonly affects joints that are weight-bearing, such as the hips, knee and the spine. Symptoms of OA progress slowly over time and seems to worsen as well. Some of the most common symptoms an individual may experience are pain and tenderness in the affected joint(s), stiffness and loss of flexibility, and bone spurs or grating sensation with movement. The risk of developing OA increases with older age. Women are more likely to develop OA compared to men. Individuals who are carry extra body weight, had joint injuries, and those with certain inherited genetics may be a higher risk.
In diagnosing OA, the affected joint must be imaged either by an X-Ray or MRI. Additionally, lab tests such as blood tests and joint fluid analysis may be conducted to rule out rheumatoid arthritis (RA, discussed in a previous post).
In the following post, we will discuss the various treatment options to control symptoms, minimize disability and improve quality of life associated with OA.

Well I took most of it home, but the little bit of ramen I had wasn’t too bad. Let me ask, though: Do any of you find your tastes changing and not for the better? Some of the foods I have always enjoyed are becoming less enjoyable. I know our tastebuds change on us, but it’s more like most of the foods I eat taste way too salty and metallic. I’m assuming it’s the medication.
In other news, crafty spoons are coming along. I’m having fun working on them, even if I am going slower than I used to. Just know that I’m slow, but I will finish them soon!
Hi guys! I haven’t posted lately, this week was pretty crazy I’m ngl... I basically had my midterm for Orgo II and it covered 6 chapters!! I had super long nights, I took naps when I shouldn’t have and still have crazy eye bags. I am physically and mentally drained so I used today to catch-up on sleep and really take a break from school. (This pic is from an interview my friend @keris_abbott filmed btw!)
When things get really stressful and seem overwhelming to me, I do have little meltdowns and I always keep them to myself except for my last one when it happened in front of someone else🙃 but anyway, my point is self doubt will always be hovering over you waiting to strike at you in your low points. Let yourself feel your emotions but don’t allow it to consume you. I literally give myself a time limit to feel crappy and feel hopeless about a test or my future or anything rly but then I’m like “okay sandy let’s get it” “cmon you got it”. Being super real right now, sometimes I think wow why did I have to like science🙄 or I wonder how my daily life would be like if I chose a different major. But nothing good comes easy and I know all of this work and sacrifice will be worth it one day and my future self will thank me for it.
The pre-med track is difficult itself with the complex content you’re supposed to understand and excel at while balancing personal life, getting clinical hours, networking with others, and applying for internships... more importantly it also makes you face YOURSELF and the nagging “I can’t do it” “I won’t make it” thoughts. It’s insane how much I realized I am my worst enemy when it comes to soccer and school. There’s definitely a mental rollercoaster involved in this path but you learn so much of yourself and it’s SO great when you actually do what your thoughts said you couldn’t.
It’s so important to remember you are you and what someone else is doing has nothing to do with your path. Like I said in a previous post, everyone has a different timing for things in their life. We got this!!!👩🏽⚕️

Here comes Autumn = Vata season. 🍁 🍃 🍂
A wonderful thing that Ayurveda has taught me is to become more aware of the seasons changing and how it affects the body and mind.
We are now in our last week of Summer!
The transition from Summer to Autumn is considered to be especially disturbing for the air element or Vata within our bodies.
Vata imbalance is experienced as:
feeling edgy or highly strung,
cold hands and feet,
muscular aches and pains,
Here are 10 tips for pacifying Vata and cruising through the Summer to Autumn change.
1. Eat more warming soups and stews.
2. Cook with Ghee (clarified butter) I’ll do a separate post on the magic of this stuff!
3. Eat meals at regular times.
4. Sip ginger tea throughout the day to keep the digestive fire (Agni) strong.
5. Avoid cold drinks
6. Reduce salads and cold food.
7. Avoid dry snacks like chips and popcorn.
8. Oil the body everyday. (see previous post)
9. A grounding yoga practice and gentle breathing exercises.
10. Wear socks and stay warm!
It’s all about warming and grounding foods, keeping warm and nurturing yourself.
I hope this was helpful in some way! Enjoy ♥️ #autumn#summer#vata#ayurveda#change#weather#anxiety#selfcare#tips#natural#medicine#oil#ghee#warmth#nuture#calm#relax#seasons#yoga#grounding#torquay#australia
INTERVIEW TIPS 🔥💯👍🏼
So you got an interview to CRNA school, what should you expect? This can be a scary, nerve racking experience, but don’t worry, you’re more than capable!🙏🏻
Pretend your CCRN is coming up, re study all your material: big focus on ventilators, what all the modes mean, (I.e) peep, PS, IMV, AC, etc and know what they actually mean and do to you, not just the definition. Review dead space and Gas exchange areas. ABGs hands down.
CARDIAC! oh man, know this up and down, arrhythmias, valve disorders, failure, tamponade, pericarditis etc and how to treat them and what’s going on with the heart.
Pharmacology: know the MOA, don’t just know it increases bp or does this, what receptor does it affect? Alpha? Beta? What? Know that better then you know your birthday lol.
Vasoactive meds: epi, neo, vaso, norepi, dopamine, dobutamine, primacor, nipride, nitro, diltiazem, amigo...etc (dig) also.
Hemodynamics: PA pressures, A-Lines, CVP, ICP, CPP, SVR, PVR, (preload / afterload / contractility / EF) know the formulas as well.
Misc: pulse ox, how it works? Pressure volume loops, how did you prepare for school? Plan? Finances, etc.
Hope this helps! Let me know what else if anything, feel free to fill in gaps anywhere!👍🏼💯
