Both classes, Paladin and Shaman, can be all three roles. One can not say which is better because each has different play styles and bring something unique to the playing fiel…d. Paladins: Excellent main tank healers, not so good at group healing. Great tanks and excellent damage dealers. Brings three different buffs. Shaman: Pretty decent group healers and pretty good tank healer. OK for damage dealing and tanking but not outstanding as either. Probably don't want to tank as a Shaman as they only get to wear mail gear as their highest armor type. Can either dps as melee or ranged magical (slightly better as melee dps). Brings some pretty fun stuff to the group with totems, which act like buffs, and with Bloodlust can really help the group. All in all, neither is better all around. ( Full Answer )

It would be most beneficial for you to read some of the tanking and protection paladin guides that are posted on the official forums at the world of warcraft website. Basic…ally, you need to be defense maxed in order to become un-critable in instances. When you become un-critable, the next thing to work on is to get gear with tons or armor on it and enchant it with armor enchants or threat enchants. Secondly, you need to spec into protection. The guides i mentioned earlier will also tell you what points to take and where. Make sure you have Righteous Fury on at all times when you are tanking, this generates a ton of threat. Also, use consecration every chance you get. This keeps your aggro on the mobs better by damaging them. ( Full Answer )

When total cure or removal of illness is not possible as in terminal cancer patients treatment is given for the symptoms that trouble the patient such as pain relief treatment…. This is called palliative therapy and is most useful for people with terminal illness, those who are in Intensive Care Units and old age related irreversible changes. ( Full Answer )
Absolutely, and I gave a lecture on this not long ago. Palliative care basically means care not aimed at curing or treatment of illness or malady, but rather providing comfort… to the patient. The patient does not necessarily have to be diagnosed with a terminal illness to receive palliative care. Hospice care, on the other hand, encompasses palliative care with other types of care for the dying person and his family. ( Full Answer )
Usually you'll get a GTN (glyceryl trinitrate) spray that when an anginal attack takes place - chest and often left arm pain - you would spray under your toungue to widen the …arteries of the heart by synthesising nitrous oxide and provide more blood to relieve the pain. People with angina are often prescribed Beta Blockers - these lessen the effects of adrenaline on the heart and as such it won't beat as fast when under stress and as such prevent anginal attacks. Other medications often used are ACE inhibitors - these drugs widen the arteries and reduce blood pressure, they have a similar effect as the GTN spray I mentioned above but it is much longer term. (though the mechanism is wholly different) If invasive intervention is needed a surgeon or doctor can place a stent, a small metal cage, within the narrowed heart vessel that causes anginal attacks to permanently widen it and prevent angina full stop.

Although not openly discussed in American society, every single person is going to die eventually. At some point, the risks and side effects of continuing to extend life outwe…igh the potential gains and benefits. As patients age, the question becomes less about "how much more time" and more about "how good of time" does the patient have left. This is the point where palliative care takes over from curative or therapeutic care - you aren't trying to cure the disease or restore function, simply to control the symptoms such as pain and make the transition into death easier and less traumatic for the patient. Care is coordinated by the caregiver, and many routine but invasive medical procedures such as cancer screenings are discontinued since they will not provide significant improvements to health and are often uncomfortable and invasive. On a personal level, palliative care is much more holistic and focuses on the patient. Most patients receiving palliative care report high levels of satisfaction and connection with their caregivers - they feel cared for, rather than taken care of. There is more emotional support and a social bond formed that makes the dying process less terrifying and easier to process. Most families of patients that receive palliative care report similar things, since palliative care givers are also generally responsible for supporting the family and helping the surviving relatives cope with the changes and the eventual outcome. On a societal level, palliative care is much less expensive than curative therapy. In the United States, it is estimated that up to 50% of health care costs are incurred in the last 6 months of life, including things like routine cancer screenings in individuals with terminal organ failure. While there are obviously many necessary health costs within the last 6 months of life, there is also a great deal of wasted medical resources and money. By shifting from curative therapy to palliative care in individuals who are terminal for their disease, society saves a great deal of money in health care costs. ( Full Answer )
