Yes: A great deal of research has been invested in photographic memory and other types of memory including total recall (folks who recall literally every day in their life).

Is a Cobb angle of 27 degrees a mild or the start of a moderate curve?

Is a Cobb angle of 27 degrees a mild or the start of a moderate curve?

Any increase greater than 5º or 10º is considered a change – the number varies among studies. Scoliosis is considered mild at 10º-24º, moderate at 25º-50º and severe at >50º." [scoliosis3dc.

I was burned with a piece of metal at 220 degrees how can I make myself comfortable?

I was burned with a piece of metal at 220 degrees how can I make myself comfortable?

First Ice: First, apply ice to get out the heat. You could apply aloe vera, but the most effective treatment would be a prescription of silvadene (silver sulfadiazine). A proper dressing of silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) will not only be anti-bacterial, but will cool the burn pain. Perhaps even a little Hydrocortisone cream and advil from the store will help with the pain and inflammation. ...Read more

My babys rectal temperature is 99 F do I need to minus 1 degree from it for actual reading?

My babys rectal temperature is 99 F do I need to minus 1 degree from it for actual reading?

Not if...: If a thermometer is calibrated for rectal temperatures, then the 99 degrees is accurate and no adjustment is needed. If the thermometer is calibrated for oral or axillary temperatures, it might automatically add 1-2 degrees to what it senses, and thus display an incorrectly high reading (because it thinks it is in the mouth or armpit, when in fact you've put it in the rectum). ...Read more

My body temp. Is 35.5 degrees C (with regular checking), I often feel unwell/ill when it goes higher not more than 37 degrees C, what should I do??

Temperature variabil: When we say normal body temp is 37 or 98.6 that is the mean for a large population. There is variation within that population. That would be like thinking that every adult would be the same height. You clearly see the variability there. If human eyes were sensitive to the infrared spectrum you would clearly note the temp variability. Yours is lower than the mean so when it rises to 37 you have a f ...Read more

If you like accounting and are close to finishing, you could major in that and take your pre-medicine courses as well. ...Read more
