4.2 Why do I need to know about first aid?

It takes only 3 to 4 minutes for a blocked airway to kill someone, but it can take more than 8 minutes for an ambulance to arrive on the scene. A simple procedure like opening an airway can save someone's life while you are waiting for professional help to arrive.

If you are working with harmful substances (chemicals, biological agents and dusts) you must know the first aid treatment if you are exposed. Do not expect a nurse or a doctor to know everything about every harmful substance.

Government Spending on Colleges in the US Is Higher than in the Countries with "Free" College

Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have both come out in favor in "free" public colleges and universities. The scheme could be funded, as CNN describes it, by "drastic increase in federal spending on higher education."

Much of the rhetoric around swirling around this issue relies on the idea that government spending on higher education in the United States is significantly lower than most other wealthy countries.

The narrative goes like this: "everyone k

The classic example of population screening is testing new-born babies for phenylketonuria (PKU). Individuals with PKU fail to make a protein, a certain enzyme, and develop mental retardation. The absence of the enzyme results in both an accumulation of phenylalanine, which causes the mental retardation, and a deficiency of tyrosine in the body, as shown in Author(s): The Open University

Aspirin acts at the site of damaged tissue to block the start of the nerve signal to the brain, the mechanism by which we experience pain (Section 2).

National Geographic-Clown Anemonefish and Sea Anemones

They are able to do this due to the mucus on the anemone. This is a great teaching resource for elementary/middle school students.
