Question: what is de Quervain's tenosynovitis really?

Tenosynovaginitis: Yes, that word. It's a problem of the tendon, it's lining, and the sheath of one of the thumb tendons. They get irritated and enflamed. It's quite painful. They become thick and hard so the tendon can't slide normally. This just makes things worse. Early on, the first month or two, a cortisone shot and a brace can be effective treatment. Later, it requires surgery. ...Read more

What does "de-sat'd" mean? While heavily sedated with morphine following major surgery, a nurse entered my room and without waking me clamped an oxygen mask over my face. The experience was alarming! Her explanation (above) did not satisfy.

What does "de-sat'd" mean? While heavily sedated with morphine following major surgery, a nurse entered my room and without waking me clamped an oxygen mask over my face. The experience was alarming! Her explanation (above) did not satisfy.

The: The saturation of oxygen in your blood is often monitored by a pulse oximeter, a device attached to the surface of your body, usually on the finger tip, toes or earlobe. It measures the content of oxygenated hemoglobin in your red cells. While not as accurate as a blood test, it is readily available. Oxygen saturation is expressed as a percentage, a number ranging from 0 to 100, normally on room air, the oxygen saturation is greater than 98%. The saturation reflects the content in the blood reasonably well in the range of normal range of acid levels and oxygen in most individuals. However, the saturation is affected by the amount of inhaled oxygen, the respiratory drive to pull oxygen into your lungs, changes in acid levels in the blood (such as seen in severe infections or kidney failure), problems with the lungs itself (such as excess fluid or pneumonia). After surgery, the combined effects of anesthesia and narcotics tend to depress the respiratory system, such that oxygen is not being drawn into the lungs (usually because of oversedation). This leads to less oxygen in the lungs and a drop in the oxygen levels and thus a drop in the saturation - thus the term: "de-sat" or desaturation. This can be easily remedied by reducing narcotics, or reversing narotic effect (e.g. Narcan), arousing the individual, and/or adding supplemental oxygen. Thus the use of the oxygen mask, which increases the saturation, but does not address the reason for oversedation. ...Read more

What can de done for an overbite and also my lower jaw is smaller horizontally than my upper jaw? Had braces...Have been told have a small jaw?

If you have already had braces, you may need to have another evaluation with an orthodontist or oral surgeon to determine if your concerns can be corrected with orthodontics alone or if surgery may also be indicated to align the jaws. ...Read more
