Medicine is the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness.
Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease,
typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Medicine has been around for thousands of years, during most of which it was an art (an area of skill and knowledge) frequently having connections to the religious and
philosophical beliefs of local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism.
In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science).
While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science.

The Lungs in Detail
with Angelica F. Dizon, MD, BSN, MBA-HCM, RN
|Have you ever wondered why:
If you have a hard time explaining to your patients about how a pulmonary embolism affects lung function or why some asthmatics can become hypoxic and stop breathing, then you need to go back to the basics with the help of a mentor who can really make the information easy and understandable.
Most of us learned our anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology in school where we were focused primarily on passing the class. We memorized, we studied, but we quickly forgot.
Understanding the essential concepts of pulmonary anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology will help you find patient complications faster and respond to them more appropriately.
The Kidneys in Detail
with Carla J. Moschella, MS, PA-C, RDN
|Have you ever wondered:
If you are like many other healthcare professionals, you might find fluids and electrolytes to be intimidating; renal function to be mysterious, and concepts like osmolality to be downright confusing. But, wait…now there’s hope!
In The Kidneys in Detail Carla J. Moschella, MS, PA-C, RDN, explains the complexities of fluids and electrolytes in simple terms that you will be able to understand and gives you practical ways to use the information at the bedside with your next patient.
If you have a hard time explaining to your patients about why their potassium is low for the third day in a row, or how certain drugs can cause renal dysfunction, or why it is important that you measure intake and output, then you need to go back to the basics with the help of a mentor who can really make the information easy and understandable.
The Immune System in Detail
with Angelica Dizon, MD, BSN, MBA-HCM, RN
|If you could master only one concept during your career, it should be the inflammatory response.
Do you care for patients with:
Inflammation is responsible for many of the disease processes that we treat; it is the primary response for healing and protecting the body from injury. In order to provide extraordinary care for your patients, you must understand the inflammatory response.
Although the inflammatory response is incredibly complex, the results of inflammation can be broken down into three major events: 1) vasodilation, 2) capillary permeability, and 3) clotting. The results of these events are what cause the problems we associate with many different conditions such as septic shock, ARDS, atherosclerosis, and many others. But, the lack of a response can be just as devastating — exposing the body to a myriad of deadly infections.
Learn how to manage patients with inflammation, and those whose inflammatory response is inhibited, by mastering the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of inflammatory and immune responses.
If you’ve had trouble with these concepts in the past, then this is the program for you! You will get the detail you need — explained at a level that you will fully understand.
