Change or status quo?


"The only thing that remains the same is change." Yesterday we talked about how to see the passage of time, watching the changes in the world around us; in the absence of changes, time also ceased to exist. When we want to imagine a better world or what the circumstances will be after hard work, we need to try to see the changes before we make them. It is necessary to find another way to look at the world - a world that does not exist yet.
This is exactly what the “change” pictures do: they show us what something will look like (weather, state of finances, place in the market) after we take an action. Simple images of change clearly show how our imagination can see what is right in front of us. Every businessman makes decisions not about changing the current situation, but about how to change his future.
Once again, we note: we cannot know where we are going until we know where we are now. Pictures of the "status quo" provide a starting

a platform from which to jump. If we do not understand our current position and the forces that have brought us here, we have no opportunity to change anything. After we understand where we would like to be, we always need to return to the place where we are now in order to understand what needs to be changed.
Look at the following set of “change” and “status quo” pictures and think: in which case this or that (or both) can provide the most useful information.

Change or status quo?

  1. Asthmatic status
    Asthmatic status is a persistent broncho-obstructive syndrome, in which previously assisted bronchodilators become ineffective, sputum separation stops and elements of multiple organ failure appear - decompensation of the blood circulation, disturbance of diuresis and others. Among the main risk factors for the development of asthmatic status, there is a massive exposure to allergens,
  2. Status epilepticus
    Epileptic status is diagnosed when: 1) epileptic seizures (see Part I, Seizures) follow each other so often that in the intervals between them the patient does not regain consciousness (unlike a series of seizures); 2) a single seizure lasts more than 30 minutes. The most common cause of status is the abrupt cessation of anti-epileptic drugs. Especially high risk
  3. What does “good or literate” and “bad or illiterate” PSYCHOLOGIST mean?
    So who is who? - A good psychologist plays the role of a conductor, he will teach you to solve problems yourself, finding resources inside. A bad psychologist will give you advice. - A good professional with a higher psychological or basic medical education. You can ask to show diplomas, certificates, awards. A good psychologist will be happy to boast of their achievements, bad for you
  4. Asthmatic status
    Asthmatic status is a severe choking attack, caused by a complication of the chronic course of bronchial asthma. Asthma status is distinguished from ordinary asthma attacks by a long course, resistance to standard therapy, and distinct signs of ARF. The duration of asthmatic status can vary from several hours to 4-6 days or more. Asthmatic status potentially
  5. Replace or maintain? (artificial or assisted ventilation)
    As you know, the work to ensure self-breathing perform respiratory muscles. It has already been mentioned above that the excessive work of the muscles of inhalation in adverse conditions leads to their exhaustion and exhaustion. Ventilation completely eliminates the work of the muscles and, on the one hand, gives them rest, but on the other hand, the inaction of the respiratory muscles causes rapidly increasing dystrophic processes in it. AT
  6. ASTMATIC STATUS
    Asthmatic status is a severe choking attack, caused by a complication of the chronic course of bronchial asthma. Asthma status is distinguished from ordinary asthma attacks by a long course, resistance to standard therapy, and distinct signs of ARF. The duration of asthmatic status can vary from several hours to 4-6 days or more. Asthmatic status
  7. Bronchostatic status
    Examination volume 1. In history - established diagnosis of asthma, overdose of inhaled adrenergic mimetics, a sharp decrease in the dose of glucocorticoids with a hormone-dependent form, adherence or exacerbation of the process in the bronchopulmonary system contribute to the development of status. 2. A choking attack against the background of total bronchiolospasm or total bronchial obstruction ("dumb lung"),
  8. Relief of epileptic status
    The effectiveness of urgent therapy in epileptic status directly depends on its early onset and can be realistically provided in the intensive care units and intensive care units, as well as (if possible) in the neuro-intensive care units. When treating epileptic status in children, first-choice drugs are considered diazepam (administered intravenously and / or rectally) and midazolam (administered
  9. Convulsive status epilepticus
    Status is a condition in which seizures follow one by one for more than 30 minutes. The patient does not regain consciousness between seizures, each subsequent seizure begins earlier than the previous one ends. Status epilepticus is an emergency condition requiring treatment. Without treatment, the status of convulsive seizures leads to the death of the patient. Treatment status. The patient is laid on its side
  10. Asthmatic status and respiratory failure
    A. Definition. Asthmatic status is a severe attack of bronchial asthma, in which inhaled beta2-adrenostimulyatory, adrenaline n / a, aminophylline in / in and corticosteroids are ineffective. Asthmatic status in 1-3% of cases leads to death, therefore, requires emergency care. B. The provoking factors are the same as in the usual attack of bronchial asthma - contact with allergens,
  11. Bronchostatic status
    Broncho-asthmatic status is one of the most severe variants of the course of bronchial asthma, manifested by acute obstruction of the bronchial tree as a result of bronchiolospasm, hyperergic inflammation and edema of the mucous membrane, hypersecretion of the glandular apparatus. The status is based on the deep blockade of? -Adrenoreceptors of the smooth muscles of the bronchi. D - ka: Attack choking with
  12. The concept and types of legal status of the patient
    A clear definition of the concept of "legal status of the patient" is justified by the need to conduct further research of this medico-legal phenomenon. In this regard, the author proposes the following definition of the legal status of the patient. The legal status of a patient is a system of rights, freedoms, legal guarantees of their implementation and the protection of legal
  13. Asthmatic status
    This is a severe attack of bronchial asthma, which often develops when the disease is poorly amenable to drug treatment. The patient is experiencing severe malaise and severe shortness of breath. If you do not take urgent measures and do not provide the patient with oxygen, do not inject him with bronchodilators and do not use corticosteroid drugs, a person may die from acute respiratory
  14. Asthmatic status: criteria, emergency
    Criteria for asthmatic status: prolonged suffocation with a violation of the drainage function of the bronchi, with an outcome in a total pulmonary obstruction, acute pulmonary heart, hypoxemic coma. Anaphylactic status can develop in atopic and aspirin-induced asthma after antibiotics, aminazine, analgesics, hypnotics, drugs, in contact with massive doses of the allergen,
  15. The status of the unemployed and its impact on the meaning of human life
    Unemployment in our country is perceived as a completely negative phenomenon. Becoming unemployed, a person cannot fully realize himself as a citizen, as a member of a family, as a person as a whole. Sociological studies show that unemployment is not declining, reaching significant proportions especially in rural areas. So, for example, statistics indicate that
  16. NEUROLOGICAL STATUS ON NERVOUS DISEASES
    Surname, name, patronymic of the patient, age, profession. 2. Medical history of the disease, history of life. 3. Somatic status: briefly indicate only the pathology of the organ systems. 4. Neurological status. General condition, cerebral symptoms: state of consciousness, headache, nausea, vomiting. 5. Meningeal signs: Kernig symptom (straight, cross), Brudzinsky symptom
  17. Social status of the patient
    Social is called the effect resulting from the interaction of individuals. A person lives in accordance with social regulations, social norms that determine the relationship of a person to other members of society. The main types of social prescriptions (D.Mag-kovic) 1: • law - a set of social prescriptions provided by a set of state laws; • custom - way
