I am scheduled for 2 root canals on the 14th. I'm a little scared! what should I expect?

Normal to be scared: It's not unusual to be apprehensive about have a root canal. After all, look at what the media, tv shows, and movies show about root canals. Modern day root canals are 99% pain free. Profound anesthesia reduces pain. The dentist will place a barrier device (rubber dam) around the tooth, isolating it from the mouth and then the nerve and dead cells will be removed from the tooth. ...Read more

The most important thing is giving the best effort possible during the evaluation. ...Read more

Why are prenatal appointments and tests scheduled the way they are? I am a student at purdue and am required to ask this question for an assignment.

Why are prenatal appointments and tests scheduled the way they are? I am a student at purdue and am required to ask this question for an assignment.

Partly just routine: There's an initial visit with blood work, & sometimes an ultrasound to confirm dates. Then you are seen every month through about week 28, then every 2 weeks through week 36, and weekly thereafter. Each visit includes weight, vital signs, listening to heart tones and measuring the fetus. Later visits focus on concerns associated with placental function at end of pregnancy, & fetal growth eval. ...Read more

I have ECT sessions twice every week, except one week in the middle where I'm only scheduled for one. Does this reduce overall efficacy of the ECT?

Overall, no.: It may mean that on that particular week the one treatment merely maintains what was done the prior week, and doesn't add an additional effect itself. But the next week's two treatments would add effect as usual. ...Read more

I am scheduled for an emg test. Will it hurt?

Tolerable discomfort: There are two parts to an EMG test: nerve conduction studies and electromyography. Nerve conduction studies feel like a short, electrical impulse and are, in a word, annoying. Emg uses a fine wire electrode to record from muscles and feels like an insect bite. It is not as bad as a shot or IV or blood draw. Several muscles and several nerves are usually checked. ...Read more

Why would i be scheduled for a three-hour biopsy?

Depends on site: Depending on what is being biopsied: breast, brain, lung, colon, pancreas -- all have different procedures. If you have a lung biopsy, you are going to be sedated and will need to recover; a brain biopsy drills into the skull and takes time to stereotactically locate the area to sample. So -- unless you are having a skin biopsy, 3 hours is not unheard of! ...Read more
