...cases also to some internal organs of the body. They form permanent or temporary marks on the skin and involve the damage of the layers of skin. Basically burns are caused by any hot object or a chemical. Usually the most common agent causing burns is the fire. Other agents are hot liquids, electricity and chemicals and gas. Each year, over 200,000 Canadians receive medical care for burn injuries. More than 5000 of these are hospitalized for an average of two weeks, and of these, four percent will die from their injuries. How many of you have had a burn? How many of you have had, or ever had a loved one have a burn so severe that they had to go to a burn ward for treatment? I’d like to take this opportunity to give you a little history on the creation of burn wards in Canada, specifically Winnipeg, Regina (my own personal experience with my brother) and Toronto, the costs of these services, the leadership required to make these services a reality, and the important role these services play in the welfare of injured Canadians as a whole. Prior to the 1960s, burn victims were treated in general surgical wards. There were no specialized facilities for treating burn victims. This all changed with the creation of two of the first specialized wards in Canada; Vancouver in 1969 under the leadership of Dr. Doughlas Courtemance and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Victoria of 1970. It was the vision and persistence of Executive Medical Director Dr. Ralph Adams and Dr. Embert......

Awaken leaders (General Shop, Jerminator12 and Drew Koskey) and Hostile leaders (Stephen22288, Viper1500 and Tyler11) were set into an MSN conversation with each other to talk. They talked about life and how their clans were doing and somehow got onto the topic of merging Awaken and Hostile and seeing what the outcome out be. They named all the positives and negatives of the situation and the merge seemed to look like it was all positive outcomes. After having a pk trip together and hunting some smaller clans in the wilderness, the leaders figured the pk trip went very well and decided to finalize the merge.

...squash. Besides this, they also commonly engaged in trading with the Navajo and Comanche tribes. Corns and beans were a staple in the diets of Mississippi tribes, and trade between the Choctaws, a Mississippi Valley tribe, and other Southeastern tribes had long been established before Europeans ventured into their territory. The differences of the Pueblo and Mississippi tribes greatly outnumber the similarities. For starters, the living quarters of the tribes were different. Choctaw Indians resided in single-story wattle and daub houses constructed from a rivercane frame and then thatched with grass or shingled with bark. Pueblo tribes lived in multistory adobe homes made from dried clay. While the adobe homes resembled modern apartment units, wattle and daub homes resembled little huts. Aside from this, the languages that were spoken throughout the tribes differed. The Muskogean language was shared throughout the majority of the Mississippi tribes, but the various Pueblo tribes, despite being closely related, don’t share the same traditional language. Native tribes and their rich cultures prospered for years before Europeans stepped foot on their land. Many of the tribes shared a common thread through their means of survival and their interactions with other tribes. But like any group of people, there were differences that were held from tribe to tribe. Differences between tribes would persist once Europeans arrived in North America as some tribes would be......

...INTRODUCTION TO CSSD HISTORY To-day,more and more infectious diseases form a serious threat to people's health. Adequate Sterile Supply plays an essential role in the attempt to reduce the spreading of diseases within the health service. Many instruments and materials used for medical &surgical interventions are very expensive and are designed such that they can be re-used. A high quality reprocessing cycle is necessary in which the used materials are treated in a way can be used safely again. The central processing area is one such manufacturing and production unit within the healthcare facility. In olden days the work of Sterilization was carried out in the Operation Theatre,with the help of sterilizer which were fitted in the OT itself. Many Units too had their own sterilizers. Due to concentrating on other work,the practice of Sterilization was neglected.Items were left in the sterilizer longer periods of time and thus damaged by overheating,or kept for a shorter time and properly sterilized resulting in the risk of infection. The operation of the Sterilizer was everyone's business but no one's responsibility.Thus in 1928,the American College of Surgeons first thought of separating the work of sterilization from the operation theatre. Hence,to establish and maintain standardized sterilization procedures throughout the institution,a separate centralized area was designated. This is often referred to as the Central Sterile Supply Department(CSSD),Central......
