Six Mechanisms of Diarrhea

Diarrhea Can be classified by it's time period (Acute vs Chronic), By Underlying cause (Infectious vs. Non-infectious/organic), or by it's mechanism of pathology.

There are six general mechanisms of diarrhea which can be further reduced to 3 mechanisms (if you really want to be concise).
In this video, I cover the six major mechanisms of causing the "squirts" and at the end I cover a little bit about floaters versus sinkers.

Do you smell that?!

Prophylactic Treatment During Hospitalization

A stay in the hospital can be a dangerous thing, unless you're well managed and potential problems are addressed before they begin.

This video covers Venous Thromboembolism (VTE, ie. DVT and PE), Hospital Acquired Infections, and Pre-surgical Prophylactic measures.

Not covered in this video is Pressure Ulcers, Hypothermia, Impaired Nutrition, Impaired Psychological State, and Gastric Ulcers (all of which can be considered prophylaxis, when treated before problems begin).
