Understanding Medicines and What They Do

A drug is any substance that causes a change in an organism's physiology or psychology when consumed. Consumption of drugs can be via inhalation , injection , smoking , ingestion , absorption via a patch on the skin, suppository , or dissolution under the tongue. In pharmacology , a drug is a chemical substance, typically of known structure, which, when administered to a living organism, produces a biological effect. Pharmaceutical drugs are often classified into drug classes —groups of related drugs that have similar chemical structures , the same mechanism of action binding to the same biological target , a related mode of action , and that are used to treat the same disease. Another major classification system is the Biopharmaceutics Classification System.

For many people, taking medication is a regular part of their daily routine, and these medicines are relied upon to treat disease and improve health. Although medicines can make you feel better and help you get well, it's important to know that all medicines, both prescription and over-the-counter, have risks as well as benefits. The benefits of medicines are the helpful effects you get when you use them, such as lowering blood pressure, curing infection, or relieving pain. The risks of medicines are the chances that something unwanted or unexpected could happen to you when you use them. Risks could be less serious things, such as an upset stomach, or more serious things, such as liver damage. Here are some tips from the Food and Drug Administration and some of its public health partners to help you weigh the risks and benefits when you make decisions about the medicines you use. When a medicine's benefits outweigh its known risks, the FDA considers it safe enough to approve.

Therapeutics , treatment and care of a patient for the purpose of both preventing and combating disease or alleviating pain or injury. In a broad sense, therapeutics means serving and caring for the patient in a comprehensive manner, preventing disease as well as managing specific problems. Exercise , diet, and mental factors are therefore integral to the prevention, as well as the management, of disease processes. More specific measures that are employed to treat specific symptoms include the use of drugs to relieve pain or treat infection, surgery to remove diseased tissue or replace poorly functioning or nonfunctioning organs with fully operating ones, and counseling or psychotherapy to relieve emotional distress. Confidence in the physician and in the method selected enhances effectiveness.

ГЛАВА 27 Тени в зале шифровалки начали удлиняться и терять четкость. Автоматическое освещение постепенно становилось ярче. Сьюзан по-прежнему молча сидела за компьютером, ожидая вестей от Следопыта.

Они пощупали пульс и увезли его, оставив меня один на один с этим идиотом-полицейским. Странно, - подумал Беккер, - интересно, откуда же взялся шрам. Но он тут же выбросил эту мысль из головы и перешел к главному. - А что с кольцом? - спросил он как можно более безразличным тоном. - Лейтенант рассказал вам про кольцо? - удивился Клушар, - Рассказал.

 - Коммандер, - сказала она, - если вы инструктировали Дэвида сегодня утром по телефону из машины, кто-то мог перехватить… - Один шанс на миллион, - возразил Стратмор, стараясь ее успокоить.  - Подслушивающий должен был находиться в непосредственной близости и точно знать, что надо подслушивать.  - Он положил руку ей на плечо.  - Я никогда не послал бы туда Дэвида, если бы считал, что это связано хоть с малейшей опасностью.  - Он улыбнулся.

Его комментарий отличался бесстрастностью опытного полевого агента: - Эта съемка сделана из мини-автобуса, припаркованного в пятидесяти метрах от места убийства. Танкадо приближается справа, Халохот - между деревьев слева. - У нас почти не осталось времени, - сказал Фонтейн.

Беккер посмотрел в другую сторону и увидел, что женщина, сидевшая рядом, уже ушла и весь ряд вплоть до центрального прохода пуст. Не может быть, что служба уже закончилась. Это невозможно. Да мы только вошли.
