Most people are capable of drinking alcohol without causing any problems and without getting any health consequenses while others over consume and end up in risky and hazardous situations.
Abuse is at hand if one out of the following three criteria is fullfilled during the same 12 months period:
Unablility to fulfill obligations at work or at home.
Repeated drinking habits leading to risk of physical injury, such as drunk driving.
Repeated problems with the justice system. Continous drinking in spite of recurrent problems of social or interpersonal nature.
Cardiology is the science of heart function and diseases.
The heart is a vital organ circulating the blood in the closed system formed by blood vessels. The pump power keeps the blood pressure up. Cardiologists are medical specialists treating inherited heart disorders, diseases in the coronary arteries, heart failure, diseases of the heart valves and the electrophysiology of the heart.
Anesthesia is total or partial loss of sensation with or without the loss of consciousness.
Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to the relief of pain and total care of the surgical patient before, during and after surgery.
The Titan Atlas lost the battle against the gods. As punishment he had to carry the world on his shoulders.
The Know-How area Head & Neck is related to Oral Medicine and Oncology. The area consists of head-, neck- and throat diseases including Meniere’s disease and head and neck problems. The atlas bone, which carries the cranium, is often overlooked as a cause of pain “from top to bottom”. If the atlas bone is out of place, the function of the whole spine is impaired.
“Women receive worse healthcare than men”. Part truth, part myth.
Nowhere in the world is mother- and childcare as developed as it is in the Nordic countries. Nowhere is the infant mortality rate as low. But in other areas, women have received worse care. The health of women like the mother and her newborn baby are greatly prioritised by POA Pharma.
Nutrition with medical purposes for specific metabolic indications.
This is one way of describing Metabolic diseases – a competence area that previously was known as dietary treatment. The area is a scientifically based development and prescription of food for the prevention and treatment of metabolic diseases, which if untreated leads to disease and premature death. The subject integrates different scientific disciplines such as biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, medicine, toxicology, food science, epidemiology and public health science.
”Man is a bowel surrounded by a body”, as somebody once said.
Our digestive organs are the means for our nutritional uptake. Diseases in this big and complex system are common, such as ulcers, gallstone, jaundice, indigestion, and irritable bowel syndrome and tumour diseases. The medical term for the speciality within the digestive system is gastroenterology. It is an area within the scientific discipline of internal medicine.
The development of your brain is more unique than your fingerprint.
Within this Know-How area POA has gathered products that are related to neurological diseases, psychiatric problems and addictions. Patients often display co-morbid conditions. An example of this is the relation between alcohol overconsumption and epilepsy. Another example is the fear, anxiety, anger, sorrow and mood swings often seen in MS patients.
A frequent need for micturition during the night is an indicator for poorer survival, a new study claims.
Urology, a relatively young surgical speciality, is the study of the urine organs of both sexes as well as the genitals of the male, and their diseases. Patients referred to urologists are those with kidney diseases, urine incontinence, and tumour diseases. Often urologists and oncologists cooperate. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in the male. Within the last few years a number of new treatments have been introduced: the combination of radiation therapy and hormone therapy, placement of radioactive “seeds” in the prostate bladder as well as new pharmaceuticals.
