Carry that weight the right way
October 6, 1998
Web posted at: 7:25 p.m. EST (0025 GMT) From Reporter Louise Schiavone (CNN) Who hasn't picked up a suitcase the wrong way, lifted a child out of a car seat or otherwise moved some unwieldy object and paid for it in back pain. Many workers who handle heavy objects are instructed to lift by their legs, not their backs and try to reinforce their backs with lumbar supports lightweight elastic belts around the lower back. But there's new evidence that lumbar supports and educating people about how to lift heavy objects have little impact on the overall incidence of low back pain and the sick leave that goes with it. The findings are reported in the journal of The American Medical Association. Researchers looked at roughly 300 airline cargo workers. They found that less than half the workers consistently wore the lumbar back supports, which they say is not unusual. Lumbar supports reinforce the back
Most people, if not nearly all, experience low back pain at some point in our lives.

Home > Drug Treatment for Glaucoma Medical Dictionary Using Eyedrops
High eye pressure not only increases the risk of developing glaucoma, but also causes progression of glaucoma and visual field defects. The mainstay of glaucoma treatment is to lower the eye pressure, either with eyedrops or surgery. Progression of visual field defects can be practically halted if the eye pressure is lowered below 12 mm Hg. Even in patients with a type of glaucoma in which visual field defects occur and progress despite the eye pressure being in the normal range (normal-tension glaucoma), reducing the eye pressure by 30% is associated with less visual field loss.
Other eye pressure-independent strategies for glaucoma management are being currently investigated. These include increasing blood supply to the optic nerve and providing some forms of neuroprotection. Perhaps in the future, we will have ways other than eye pressure reduction to manage glaucoma. Until then, lowering the eye pressure is the only method for reducing the risk of glaucoma visual field loss and remains the primary goal of therapy. Glaucoma Treatment-An Evolving Paradigm
Timoptic Lumigan Xalatan
Trusopt Pilocarpine Alphagan
Alphagan There are two primary mechanisms for lowering eye pressure: 1) Decrease the amount of aqueous humor coming into the eye i.e. reduce the production of aqueous, and 2) Increase the amount of aqueous leaving the eye i.e. increase the outflow of aqueous. Some medications decrease the production of aqueous humor whereas others increase the outflow. Aqueous humor flows out of the eye using two pathways: one that is sensitive to eye pressure (the trabecular meshwork pathway) and one that operates independently of eye pressure (the uveoscleral pathway).

Although there are several types of glaucoma we will limit our focus here to primary open angle glaucoma. Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma (POAG) is the second leading cause of irreversible blindness in the United States. It is generally characterized by a clinical triad: (1) elevated intraocular (eye) pressure ; (2) development of optic nerve atrophy ; and (3) loss of peripheral field of vision Over the years, numerous investigators have studied the characteristics of individuals who have glaucoma, and based on those studies it became possible for them to identify several factors that seem to occur more frequently in glaucoma patients. Since there is a greater likelihood of these factors being present in someone with glaucoma, it is reasonable to assume that these be considered as risk factors for glaucoma. Any individual who has these risk factors should be screened for the possibility of glaucoma. It is estimated that approximately 10 patients per 1000 patients with glaucoma risk factors will develop glaucoma per year. This prompted Medicare to announce a Glaucoma screening benefit in January 2002. (View

Descripci³n, diagn³stico y tratamiento.
GLAUCOMA Existen varios tipos de glaucoma. Los mas frecuentes son los siguientes: GLAUCOMA PRIMARIO DE ANGULO ABIERTO El glaucoma es una enfermedad de los ojos que puede llevar a la ceguera irreversible. No produce molestias y es por eso que generalmente la persona que lo padece consulta al médico cuando ya es demasiado tarde. La mejor forma de detectarlo en etapas tempranas, cuando todavía es tratable, es consultar periódicamente al médico oftalmólogo quien realizando algunos exámenes puede diagnosticarlo y tratarlo a tiempo. Cómo produce ceguera el glaucoma? El glaucoma produce ceguera por un aumento de la presión dentro del globo ocular: normalmente el ojo tiene dentro de él un líquido llamado humor acuoso, el cual constantemente entra al ojo y debe salir en iguales cantidades. Si es mayor la cantidad de líquido que entra que la que sale, la presión dentro del ojo aumentará. Al elevarse la presión dentro del ojo se produce atrofia de algunas estructuras: las mas afectadas son las compuestas por tejido nervioso, principalmente el nervio óptico. Estas estructuras nerviosas no son capaces de repararse a sí mismas una vez lesionadas, es decir que si existe un daño avanzado por glaucoma, éste no podrá ser reparado. Es por esto que el tratamiento en etapas avanzadas consiste en conservar la poca visión que todavía exista para no llegar a la ceguera absoluta. Solo si el tratamiento se inicia tempranamente se logra evitar completamente la pérdida de visión.

Guarding Against Glaucoma
by S.J. Ackerman An outstanding scholar still in his 30s, John felt his "sight getting weak and dull"occupational eyestrain, he supposed. Soon his left eye dimmed, starting from the left side. Then his right eye failed, "perceptibly and gradually over three years." By age 43, he was totally blind. That was in 1652. John Milton triumphed over blindness, still serving the British foreign office and writing literary classics like "Paradise Lost." Yet he never ceased lamenting "how my light is spent/Ere half my days, in this dark world and wide." What relegated him to seeing "a universal blank" was probably open-angle glaucoma, which today needlessly blinds 80,000 Americans each year. It causes another 900,000 to lose some vision. Yet now we have means Milton lacked to thwart "the sneak thief of sight" with a number of treatments approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Glaucomas are a group of diseases sharing certain features, commonly including high intraocular pressure (IOP), damaged optic nerves, and loss of peripheral vision. Early detection can contain two glaucomas: chronic (sometimes called common) and acute. Primary open-angle glaucoma (chronic glaucoma) affects mostly adults over age 35. This most prevalent glaucoma is the sneak-thief disease without noticeable symptoms. By the time it's detected, it has started doing damage.

Web posted at: 12:22 p.m. EDT (1622 GMT) (CNN) Peanut butter, raisins , marshmallows, and popcorn all sound like perfect chewy treats for children. But such snacks can also pose a choking threat to their small throats. Pediatrician Ginette Archinal has some tips on how to break up food for youngsters' plates, and what to do if a child chokes on food or other small, everyday objects.

Despite our ever increasing understanding of the pathogenesis of glaucoma, it still is an incredibly frustrating disease to treat. At this point, we still must consider glaucoma to be an incurable disorder. The goals in the management of glaucoma are to prolong vision and ocular comfort in patients for the maximum length of time. Prior to initiating therapy for glaucoma, it is essential to assess whether primary or secondary glaucoma is present. It is also important to assess the visual potential in the affected eye. These factors will dramatically influence the therapies that are selected. BACK TO TOP
Primary glaucoma is characterized by elevated intraocular pressure in the absence of signs of concurrent ocular disease. Most dogs with primary glaucoma suffer from narrow angle glaucoma, in which the iridocorneal angle progressively closes over time, resulting in obstruction of aqueous outflow through the iridocorneal angle (figure 1) . Primary open angle glaucoma is the most common form of glaucoma in people and is characterized by a more chronic insidious onset. In the canine population, open angle glaucoma exists almost solely in the Beagle. Unfortunately, primary glaucoma (either narrow angle or primary open angle) is a bilateral disease, with the fellow eye being affected within 6 to 12 months of initial diagnosis. Client education regarding the eventual prognosis is therefore a crucial part of the clinical management of primary glaucoma. It is also important to educate clients regarding the heritability of primary glaucoma and to discourage breeding of affected dogs. Prophylactic therapy of the fellow eye has been shown to increase the time to onset of glaucoma, but not to prevent glaucoma altogether.

        What is glaucoma?
        Glaucoma is a condition in which the normal fluid pressure inside the eyes (intraocular pressure, or IOP) slowly rises as a result of the fluid aqueous humor - which normally flows in and out of the eye - not being able to drain properly. Instead, the fluid collects and causes pressure damage to the optic nerve (a bundle of more than 1 million nerve fibers that connects the retina with the brain) and loss of vision.

Glaucoma: within the eye there is a fluid that is called "aqueous humor". The aqueous humor is normally maintained at a pressure of approximately 15 to 30 mm mercury in the dog. It is imperative that the pressure is constant to maintain the normal shape and firmness of the eyeball. Aqueous humor is produced by a part of the eye called the epithelium of the ciliary processes. It was established in 1979 by Van Buskirk, that the aqueous humor flows into the posterior chamber, through the pupil into the anterior chamber and peripherally to the spaces of the iridocorneal angle. Here it is resorbed into the bloodsteam by the scleral venous plexus. If this flow is blocked in any way pressure increases and results in glaucoma. Return to Medical Index Return to Bark Bytes Home

Glaucoma Overview
Glaucoma Overview
Glaucoma refers to certain eye diseases that affect the optic nerve and cause vision loss. Most, but not all, of these diseases typically produce elevated pressure inside the eye, called intraocular pressure (IOP). Normal IOP is measured in millimeters of mercury and can range from 10-21 mm Hg. An elevated IOP is the most important risk factor for the development of glaucoma. Elevated IOP is sometimes called ocular hypertension. If your doctor diagnoses ocular hypertension, it does not mean you have glaucoma, but it does mean you are at a higher risk for developing the condition, and you should see an ophthalmologist (a medical doctor who specializes in eye care and surgery) frequently. Half of the people with glaucoma are usually unaware of it until a serious loss of vision has occurred. Many factors are associated with an increased risk of developing glaucoma, some of which are elevated IOP, a family history, ethnic background, and older age.
  • The two main types of glaucoma are angle closure and open angle.

Glaucoma is the name for a group of eye diseases in which the optic nerve is damaged. In the worst cases, the damage can lead to blindness, but this need not happen if glaucoma is detected and treated early. The most common type, called open angle glaucoma (or chronic simple glaucoma), affects around two in every hundred people over the age of 40, and becomes more common with increasing age.
The normal eye
The eyeball is filled with a watery fluid called aqueous humour, which creates pressure and helps maintain the shape of the eyeball (see the diagram, below). The aqueous humour that fills the anterior chamber (front part of the eye) is produced by the ciliary body, just behind the iris. The fluid drains back into the bloodstream through sieve-like channels called the trabecular meshwork. Normally, the amount of fluid produced is balanced by the amount draining away, so the pressure in the eye stays constant.
Cross section of the eye
Increased pressure
In most people with glaucoma, it is raised pressure inside the eye that causes optic nerve damage. The increase in pressure usually happens because the aqueous humour in the anterior chamber doesn’t drain away properly.
