Answer . ADHD is most commonly treated with stimulants like methylphenidate (aka Ritalin, Focalin, Daytrana, Concerta, etc) or amphetamine (Adderall, Adderall XR, Dexedrine).. Both methylphenidate and amphetamine can have a growth slowing effect in children. Only some children experience thi…s effect, the reasons for which are still unknown. However, it tends to be more pronounced in children who take the drugs for long periods of time without breaks--a slowing in height of about half an inch per year was seen in one study involving Adderall, for example.. It is also important to note that any "stunting" effect does not seem to be permanent. Longer term studies generally to indicate that the medications do not affect a child's ultimate height, just the rate at which they grow. Children who did experience slowed growth seemed to have a "rebound" growth spurt upon discontinuation of the treatment when they no longer needed it.. If this is a concern to you (either about yourself or about your child), the best thing to do would simply to monitor height (and weight) with your doctor. He/she will be able to detect a slowing growth rate and adjust the medication accordingly. ( Full Answer )
What is Boston Medical Group? Established in the U.S. 1998, Boston Medical Group is a network of independent physicians that has dedicated its practices to treating sexual dysfunction - specifically erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. Using The Boston Method, a proprietary treatment pr…ogram, Boston Medical Group physicians provide personalized treatment programs that enable men to improve their sexual function. Boston Medical Group is not affiliated with the Boston Medical Center, nor does Boston Medical Group have an office or location in Boston. A prominent treatment recommended by Boston Medical Group is intracavernous pharmacotherapy (ICP), which consists of administering an injection of a vasodilator drug directly into the penis, which increases blood flow, and causes an erection in minutes in many patients. First introduced by urologists in the early 1980s, intracavernous pharmacotherapy (ICP) is widely recognized as a highly safe and effective method to treat erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. Until the advent of popular ED pills in the late '90s, ICP was the most common way for men with erectile dysfunction to attain an erection; even still it is the preferred method of many physicians and is used especially for men who take nitrates or have other health conditions. Boston Medical Group maintains clinics in 21 locations in the United States, in addition to international locations in Europe, South America, and Asia. ( Full Answer )

A medical assisting? Never heard of that as a profession. A medical assistant usually works in nursing homes and hospitals or physician's offices. A medial office assistant and medical assistant pretty much share the same duties. Such as administrative duties which includes: answer telephones, g…reet patients, update and file patient medical records, fill out insurance forms, handle correspondence, schedule appointments, handle billing and book keeping, and sometimes arrange for hospital admission and laboratory services. The difference between the two is that the medical assistant can be certified or registered, and have Clinical duties which includes: taking medical histories and recording vital signs, explaining treatment procedures to patients, preparing patients for examination, and assisting the physician during the examination. Medical Assistants collect and prepare laboratory specimens or perform basic laboratory tests on the premises, dispose of contaminated supplies, and sterilize medical instruments. They instruct patients about medication and special diets, prepare and administer medications as directed by a physician, authorize drug refills as directed, telephone prescriptions to a pharmacy, draw blood, prepare patients for X-rays, take electrocardiograms, remove sutures, and change dressings. **Sorry I tried to make it as short as possible lol** ( Full Answer )

Rapport is the medical term used to describe a relationship of understanding between two people.
Can payment of medical benefits be coordinated between an individual medical insurance plan and a group medical insurance plan covering the same person?
Its possible but unlikely. If one policy is direct pay then both should pay as prime and essentially ignore one another. Clarification: It would be considered insurance fraud to not notify each insurance company of your coverage with the other. Otherwise, you would actually be making a profit fr…om both insurers paying the full amount they would pay if you only had coverage with one company, which is illegal and would result in serious consequences. When a person is covered under two medical insurance policies, one is considered the primary insurer, while the other is considered the secondary insurer. Typically, the primary insurance policy will pay their percentage, then the secondary will pay the balance. But you still have to meet your deductibles for both insurers, as well as paying your co-pay amount. You need to contact both insurance companies to determine which one is your primary coverage, which will be determined by several factors, depending on your status, such as married, dependent, etc. ( Full Answer )

Group medical insurance rates are those which apply to policies that cover a group of persons, as distinct from individual policies. The groups that are insured generally have a common denominator, such as employment by the same employer, or membership in the same organization. Typically, since the… risk is spread over a larger number of people, the "law of large numbers" allows for lower rates and more relaxed underwriting standards than do individual health policies.

It has been posited by many Marxist social scientists that, in defence of dialectics as a method of scientific investigation we should draw an analogy or comparison with the diagnostic approach of medical science. While heavily qualitative or behaviouralist approaches suggest that there are strict r…ules governing macro level behaviour in society, with an emphasis on deductive rationalisation and the development of testable, repeatable experiments (as we might in the study of physics). Many Marxists reject the viability of this definition of a scientific social enquiry, as the study of politics, economics and other socially constructed phenomenon contain far too many variables to be testable in this manner. Instead, Marxists might describe our investigation into the causes and consequences of social ills/characteristics/tendencies should be more akin to that of the biologist or more specifically medical practitioner who might approach enquiry by first diagnosing a problem that requires attention and attempting to draw up some basic characteristics about the problem from looking at several cases. Events in human history (revolutions for instance) are rarely similar, so it is the of the social scientist to deconstruct the narrative of events and look for common factors or tendencies. Like a doctor does not treat any two patients the same, even when they have similar symptoms, the researcher does not use a simplistic mass categorisation of contingencies as a means of developing general rules about a particular phenomenon (such as... a revolution).

Negligence occurs when an individual ignores fundamental civil responsibilities and the dearth of action hence causes another person or group of individuals to be hurt. Their customers might be hurt when a professional is negligent. Medical malpractice is the illegal occasion where the bond of tr…ust between client and medical professional has in some kind been breached with purpose. It is below the umbrella of negligence, as it is the occurrence in which the malign neglect is committed by a doctor. Health care providers refer to the majority of professionals in the medical area, for example nurses, doctors, dentists, physicians, and therapists. The malpractice exists when treatment is not provided as is safe and conventional process, which thus results in harm or even death to the individual. ( Full Answer )
Medical transcription is listening to doctor dictation and typingit for the patient's medical record. Medical coding and billing isapplying industry standard codes to medical procedures, tools used,etc and then applying dollar amounts and billing insurancecompanies, patients, medicare, medicaid, etc…. Let me give an example. Say a woman comes into the hospital to havea baby. After the doctor sees her, the doctor will dictate into arecorded what happened during the visit. That dictation will besent to the medical transcriptionist via the internet. Thetranscriptionist will then listen to the file, format and type itand then send it back via the internet. The typed file will then besent to the medical coder/biller. The coder/biller will apply codesto the # of hours the dr was with the patient, the # of hours thenurses were with the patient and baby, all the supplies used duringthe delivery, the medications used during their stay, etc. Thecodes are industry standard codes. Then the coder/biller will applydollar amounts to each code and prepare the bill for the insurancecompanies, etc. Training is generally required for both careers (there are alsotraining for both - packaged courses). Usually employers willrequire training or previous experience. One would think it wouldbe easy to listen and type what you hear but that is not the case.You need to learn how to spell medical terms and recognize themwhen you hear them. You need to know how to format the medicalrecord correctly. A plus would be learning how to use keyboardshortcuts to be able to complete your work faster. Medicaltranscriptionists are generally paid by production so the fasteryou can type, the more money you can make. You also need topractice with lot of real doctor dictation. This is because thereare many different ways to pronounce the same words, accents, youneed to get used to recognizing medical terms when you hear them,and doctors don't always speak clearly and slowly. Throw ESLdoctors in the mix and you can really get mixed up! Employersusually will test your skills before they even look at your resume.If you don't pass, you don't get a call. For medical coding and billing, training is also generallyrequired. Again employers will usually test your skills before theywill look at your application. You have to at least know how tolook up codes- experienced coders will have a lot of regularly usedcodes memorized. What's nice is that training can take you anywhere from 4 months toa year to complete for both careers so you can be ready to enterthe job market in a relatively short period of time.

This answer contains multiple factual errors. For information onthe CMA (AAMA) credential, visit the American Association ofMedical Assistants at aama-ntl.org. For a comparison of medicalassisting credentials, see "How the CMA (AAMA) stands apart: Acomparison of four medical assisting credentials" u…nder CMAToday/Public Affairs articles. A Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) and a Certified Medial Assistant (CMA) are somewhat similar inmany duties. But a CCMA, in general, has more hands on assistingduties while assisting a physician or nurse practitioner, they mayeven assist with some medical procedures. Basic info about both professions: Individuals withcertification as a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant may be ableto obtain more job opportunities than a Certified Medical Assistantbecause they can work as a CCMA or a CMA. CCMA may be eligible towork at a higher pay scale than a CMA in most cases. Either a CCMAor CMA is able to work in a physician's office or hospital, clinic,or emergency room; or with a chiropractor, podiatrist, or othermedical professional. The education for CCMA or CMA can be obtained through many two yearcolleges. There are also some online programs, though distantlearning schools/colleges. Either a CMA or CCMA play an importantrole in the medical care industry. Doctors and hospitals cannotafford to hire a number of nurses to do all of the needed healthcare duties, so they CMAs or CCMAs to help with the additionalduties needed in patient care. They generally can hire two CMAs orCCMAs for every nursing position. So medical offices may hire twoor three to fill out their staffing requirements, and of course aclinic or hospital may hire many more as needed. Information on the salary for either a CMA or CCMA and careeropportunities vary from state to state; so you will have to look upfurther info for your state on the internet or contact your localemployment office. The basic job duties for patient intake are thesame for either job position; but listing a specific jobdescription for either position beyond the basic is difficult toimpossible. The job descriptions can vary greatly based on theduties required by different medical specialties; and the jobdescription can become quite specialized for a CCMA as their dutiescan become very complexed in some offices, clinics and hospitals.(I would suggest that you look at the job descriptions for severaljobs offered in your area to get an idea of the variations and theverity of duties. Now with this all said, below is a bit moreinformation that may apply to some based on the position. CCMA - Persons in this field can assist physicians or nursepractitioners with medical procedures. (In general, the job entailschecking in patients (weight, blood pressure, temperature, bloodoxygen level, checking and listing current medications...), but itcan evolve much more. The job description of a CCMA is similar to aLicensed Practical Nurse, however the biggest difference between aCCMA and a LPN is that they work under the supervision of a doctoror nurse. They do not act on their own, and other medical staffgenerally stays close to supervise as needed. A CCMA's duties mayconsist removing stitches, dressing wounds, draining small wounds,setting up for injections or even giving some injections (like flushots, insulin, tetanusÃ¢ï¿½Â¦), giving medications, doing basic labtests (blood or urinalysis), or assisting in minor surgeries. CCMAsgenerally work in a doctor's office, where they may do a number ofin-office medical procedures, or in an urgent care clinic, or anemergency room. They work in areas were their extra training maybetter benefit in the assisting of medical procedures. They alsoassist in administrative duties and keeping medical documentationof patients. They also might work in a clinical research faciallywhere there might be clinical trials going on, for example theymight be giving medication (oral and injection) and documentingvitals, symptoms/reactionsÃ¢ï¿½Â¦ and so on. They might set up and evenuse some types of medical equipment under the supervision of othermedical staff, such as an ultrasound machine, set electrodes for asleep study, or help attach electrodes for a EKG (brain wavemonitor) or ECG ( heart monitor), CPAP/BIPAP (card readings) forsleep apnea, help set up a respirator, set up a heat lamp, do anice massage, apply hot packsÃ¢ï¿½Â¦ A CCMA might even supervise a CMAin an office setting, with patient care or patient medical records(if the CMA is just doing ward clerk duties). CMA - Persons in this field assist with the general healthcare of patients. They usually work under the general supervisionof nursing staff and they duties are limited. The job usuallyentails checking in patients (weight, blood pressure, temperature,blood oxygen level, checking and listing current medications...) Itcan also entail housekeeping type duties if one works in a hospitalor a nursing home (changing bed linens, changing bed pads, bedpansÃ¢ï¿½Â¦) A Certified Medical Aid does not do as much hands onassisting of the patients as a CCMA does. However, if they havereceived additional one on one training directly under the doctoror nurse, where they are taught to assist in additional clinicalduties; or they take Continuing Education courses, where by earningCE units that allow them to take on extra responsibilities, a CMAcan be further trained to assist a doctor or nurse with clinical ormore hands on duties. so they might assist other medical staff. (FYI: I worked as a MA for years -- when I started I did not haveto be state certified, I received additional training for clinicalduties by working with the head doctor and the lead staff nurse.With my additional training, I was able to dispense patientmedications. I regularly checked, tested wounds for signs of staph,redressed and packed wounds, I processed urinalysis for diabeticpatients, gave insulin injections, I used a respiratory suctionmachine to drain mucus from the lung airways, cleaned and changedstomach tubesÃ¢ï¿½Â¦ and much more. I worked with the lead nurse andthe head doctor in a nursing home for the most part, but I alsoworked in a hospital later on. So even though my job was listed asa Medical Assistant, what I did on the job fell under the clinicalmedical assisting, and even with more job responsibilities, I madelittle more than most MAs and my title did not change - I madeabout 75 cents more an hour. To be honest the money really did notmatter all that much at the time -- I did not have children at thetime, and I loved the work and my patients. This was more than 35years ago and things have changed a lot in the job, as well as thetraining requirements and now state certification is required.) ( Full Answer )
It depends on the purpose for which the narcotic is being used, and how it was obtained. Certain narcotics can be considered medication, but only if a doctor prescribes them. Doctors will sometimes write a prescription for a narcotic when a patient has intense pain. The drug is considered medicat…ion under that circumstance because you will take it for a specific period of time and only under the doctor's supervision. But even a doctor knows that narcotics can be addictive, so your use of the medication is supposed to be monitored and you will be expected to only take the amount the doctor prescribed. On the other hand, if you obtained the narcotic without a prescription and are using it just to get high, or because you are an addict, then that is not considered medication. It is considered the illegal use of an addictive substance. ( Full Answer )
