What is functional fitness?
John Bauer , NASM Elite Trainer, Fitness, answeredFunctional fitness can be looked at as practice for what our everyday lives ask of us. For instance, walking up and down stairs asks the body to be strong on the way up and very controlled and stable on the way down. Simple stepping exercises built into an exercise routine can help to get that much needed practice for when everyday life puts a staircase in front us.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
How can I pick the best hospital if my child has an emergency?
Erin Trevey-Pagel, Nursing, answered
If your child has an illness or injury that requires emergency department visit, it is best to choose a hospital that specializes in children. Treatment in children is very specialized and not all emergency departments are equal in caring for children of all ages. Finding a hospital with a children’s emergency department is the best choice when seeking emergency care of children.
What causes pulmonary artery stenosis?
SCAI answeredPulmonary stenosis is the second most common form of congenital heart disease. In pulmonary stenosis, the pulmonary valve is abnormal and does not open to allow blood to flow freely to the lungs. The pulmonary valve is important because it is the gateway between the lower right heart chamber (the right ventricle) and the major artery to the lungs (the pulmonary artery). Pulmonary stenosis, therefore, causes increased pressure on the right side of the heart, and can lead to symptoms and heart failure over time.
