2 Indications The Atoll OCT Spinal System is indicated to promote fusion of the occipito-cervico-thoracic regions of the spine (Occiput – T3).
Indications for Use The intended use of the Malibu™ system, when used as a Pedicle Screw Spinal System or Spondylolisthesis Spinal Fixation Device System, is to provide immobilization and stabilization of spinal segments in skeletally mature patients as an adjunct to fusion in the treatment of the following acute and chronic instabilities or deformities of the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine.
Loss of Myelin in the Brain and Spinal Cord tissues, is accompanied by diverse additional microscopic abnormalities in the Plaques of MS.

Sympathetic blockade due to spinal or epidural anesthesia interferes with the compensatory vasoconstrictor reflex---- profound hypotension engorgement of the epidural vasculature makes puncture of an epidural vein more likely decrease in epidural space by the engorged vessels leads to decreased drug requirement Healthy parturient will tolerate a 1 to 1.5L of blood loss (hemorrhage at delivery remains an important risk) Cardiac output remains high in first few hours post-partum.
Endocrinology and Metabolic Processes Regulation Athletic Success via Biochemical Supplementation ● ● ● Author: Eva Date: 20160130 Rev: 1.2.1 Note : This is a work in progress for my own purposes. It is currently evolving. Resources are listed in brackets with source links at the end of the document. If otherwise not noted/bracketed, the writing is from the author’s own contextual knowledge. Conclusions are bolded where deemed relevant to a topic. A Quick Intro to Endocrinology and Metabolism Prior to getting into any concepts or useful conclusions there are several background terms and elements that the reader should be familiar with. We’ll start with fundamentals and touch on several core elements before introducing the cyclical elements of endocrinology and the metabolic cycle. These terms, concepts, and cycles are essential to understanding how one’s diet and hormonal balances are controlled by diet, which in turn defines how our physical form is capable of performance, growth, decline, and overall change. Fundamental Terms The following terms will come up occasionally throughout this document and, as such, one would benefit from knowing the context around them prior to continuing. Endogenous Originating from within an organism, not attributable to any external or environmental factor. eg: biologically produced estrogen created by the ovaries. Exogenous Originating from outside an organism, caused by an agent or organism outside the body. eg: hormone replacement medication taken by injection. MacroNutrients The combined requirements of base nutrition required to sustain healthy human existence. There are three primary macronutrients: protein, fat, and carbohydrate.  Macronutrients are defined as a class of chemical compounds which humans consume in the largest quantities (must be above a threshold amount) and which provide humans with the bulk of energy.  CNS, The Central Nervous System The central nervous system is composed of the brain and spinal cord. Your brain and spinal cord serve as the main "processing center" for the entire nervous system, and control all the workings of your body. PSN, The Peripheral Nervous System The peripheral nervous system consists of the nerves that branch out from the brain and spinal cord. These nerves form the communication network between the CNS and the body parts. The peripheral nervous system is further subdivided into the somatic nervous system and the autonomic nervous system. The somatic nervous system consists of nerves that go to the skin and muscles and is involved in conscious activities. The autonomic nervous system consists of nerves that connect the CNS to the visceral organs such as the heart, stomach, and intestines. It mediates unconscious activities. Endocrinology A branch of biology and medicine dealing with the endocrine system, its diseases, and its specific secretions known as hormones. It is also concerned with the integration of developmental events proliferation, growth, and differentiation, and the psychological or behavioral activities of metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sleep, digestion, respiration, excretion, mood, stress, lactation, movement, reproduction, and sensory perception caused by hormones. Metabolism The set of lifesustaining chemical transformations within the cells of living organisms. These enzymecatalyzed reactions allow organisms to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures, and respond to their environments. Pharmacokinetics Sometimes described as what the body does to a drug, refers to the movement of drug into, through, and out of the body the time course of its absorption, bioavailability, tissue distribution, metabolism, and excretion.  Endocrinology: Communication and Message Relays The endocrine system is a collection of glands that secrete hormones directly into the circulatory system to be carried towards distant target organs. The major endocrine glands include the pineal gland, pituitary gland, pancreas, ovaries, testes, thyroid, parathyroid, hypothalamus, gastrointestinal tract, and adrenal glands. The Role of Hormones in Endocrinology Hormones are the body’s signaling molecules that are used to communicate between organs and tissues. They regulate physiological and behavioral activities, such as digestion, metabolism, respiration, tissue function, sensory perception, sleep, excretion, lactation, stress, growth and development, movement, reproduction, and mood. The particulars of each hormone are covered in the section titled “Neurotransmitters, Hormones, and Histamines”. An Overview of Hormonal Biosynthesis Receptors In biochemistry and pharmacology, a receptor is a protein molecule usually found embedded within the plasma membrane surface of a cell that receives chemical signals from outside the cell.
Unfortunately, most of the public is not aware of the research and statistics, and therefore end up with a high risk of surgery when presenting to a medical doctor or surgeon with spinal pain or function complaints.

The Gate Control Theory of Pain In the dorsal horn of the spinal cord, competing signals and neurotransmitters can open or close the gate on painful perceptions.
Articles published in 2015 have covered the topics on the application of nano-particles towards imaging and therapy, quantification of PET/CT images, the role of [18F]FDG positron emission tomography (PET) imaging for glucose transporter GLUT1, bifunctional metal - nitroimidazole complexes for hypoxia theranosis in cancer, 3-D image-based dosimetry using 90Y microsphere therapy, reirradiation of spinal metastases using micro multileaf collimator, nano-aptamer for breast cancer imaging and gallium-68 radiotracers for Alzheimer’s plaque imaging.
Physical therapy can help If managing on your own is not working as much as you’d like, or if you need more information and guidance, physical therapy has been shown to decrease use of more advanced and expensive health care associated with management of low back pain.5 In New York State, physical therapists are permitted to perform spinal thrust manipulation, and other manual techniques that can help, as well as continue to progress your exercise and mobility program to assist you along your path to recovery.
JOHN DOE was a strong and healthy male in his late 30's who died from the deliberate, precise and sudden severing of the skull separated at the junction of the 4th and 5th cervical vertebrae. Severing the spinal column. Life would be extinct almost immediately.
