The pancreas, about 6-8 inches long, is pear-shaped and positioned near to the liver and the duodenum. The primary functions of the pancreas include: • It helps in the breakdown of fats and sugars in the digestive system by making digestive juices which are mainly enzymes. • It secretes hormones, like insulin, that affects how the body uses and stores nutrients. The portion of the pancreas that produces digestive juices is called the exocrine pancreas, while the endocrine pancreas is the other part that produces hormones.
The spinal cord connects the brain and the body. Spinal cord injury occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord either due to trauma or due to degenerative diseases. Spinal cord injury is a serious condition because of the inability of the spinal cord to repair itself. Almost all cases of spinal cord injury require medical intervention. The seriousness of this condition is implied from the fact that the severity of disability with skull fracture is estimated at 43%, while it is a staggering 72% with spinal cord injuries. It poses a devastating effect on physical, mental, emotional health and affects the socioeconomic status of the patient. According to the WHO data, the risk of mortality is high in the first year of spinal cord injury. People with the condition versus those without spinal cord injury, are 2 to 5 times more likely to have a premature death.
The prognosis of spinal cord injury depends upon the severity of the disease. Normally, the patient may have a certain level of recovery within 6 months of injury. After 6 months, the chances of recovery are small. Rehabilitation therapy may help to reduce the extent of disability.
Yes. It is very important to keep the head and neck of the patient immobilized. Any movement may increase the risk of complications. It is very important to keep the spinal cord stable during transport in an ambulance. Immobilization after an injury is an important deciding factor in determining recovery.
Currently, there is no cure for damages caused due to spinal cord injury. Certain medications and rehabilitation therapy may improve the patient's condition and make him more independent. Researches are ongoing to find a complete cure for this condition.
