Please find details to our shipping fees here. Actual interventions were rare and limited to hernia, removal of bladder stones, and burning of haemorrhoids. Many of the doctrines of surgery were quite reasonable: Wounds should only be cleaned with wine since the water was contaminated; clean cuts should be kept dry so that they can heal; all blood should be emptied from the wound, and wounds with broken tissue should be cleansed of pus and ample drainage provided to avoid infection.
Orthopaedic surgery involved more reasoned treatments. Patients with fractures were stretched to relieve the fracture site and promote setting, and to prevent a shortening of the fractured bone, which caused the patient to limp. Sporting activities offered plenty of opportunities to put dislocated joints back into place. Dislocated shoulders were fixed by pushing the heel into the armpit of the lying patient while pulling and turning his arm — a procedure that has not changed over the past 2, years.

Medications used included mandrake, hemlock, henbane, and other plants belonging to the Solanaceae nightshade as narcotics. Mandrake was used to treat seizures, depression, and malaria. We know this from the first written sources from the first century CE and from seeds excavated from the remains of temples. It was here that Herophilus of Chalcedon BCE came up with the theory that the brain controlled the rest of the body.
The Origin of the History of Science in Classical Antiquity
He distinguished between the functions of the brain and the cerebellum, and connected the nervous system with movement and sensation. He also described the flow of blood from the heart into the arteries, and even invented the water clock in order to achieve reproducible pulse measurements. Roman education included a detailed knowledge with the philosophers, and as medical science was based on philosophy, self-care was a natural progression.
But if the Romans had inferior medical insights, they were supreme in terms of logistics and hygiene. Aqueducts brought clean water from the mountains into towns via an extensive network, where sewage and drinking water were strictly separated. This preventative effort may have saved more people than the treatments of the Greek doctors.
Galen studied medicine for four years in Pergamon, followed by studies in Smyrna, Corinth and Alexandria. In CE he became a doctor at the gladiator school in Pergamon and was later appointed physician-in-ordinary for emperor Marcus Aurelius. His ideas, which were based on animal dissections and matched the perceptions of the church, were undisputed until around CE.
The treatment was almost Hippocratic, discharged by vomiting, coughing, stools, urination, sweating, or bleeding. Ole Sonne. It took six months to describe and catalogue this A4 sized 3,year-old medical papyrus. See what Egyptologists have learnt so far. Norwegian researchers are trying to uncover more secrets about the mysterious Dead Sea Scrolls. For decades, a lack of safe and efficient treatment meant that rheumatologists and their patients were caught between a devastating disease and harmful medicines.
A new PhD investigates the history of the treatment of rheumatic diseases. Medication ingested by humans is taken up by algae and sea creatures. Entire ecosystems can be affected, according to a Swedish researcher.
The Exact Sciences in Antiquity by Otto Neugebauer
A particular type of wax that accumulates on the surface of plant root cells is vital for their nutrient balance, new study shows. The results truly challenge the way we think about plant growth and plant root adaptations. Computing society needs to promote more gender equity and better ways at working together.
We present our experiences on trying to do so. A small town in northern Iceland has gone almost CO2-neutral.
tasytursfrenon.ml Researchers went there to find out how they did it and what we can learn from them. Drug-resistant infections are increasing globally. One new member of the superbug family has already caused severe illness in hospitalized patients. Here is what you need to know.

Today CO2 is removed from industry by using molecules called amines, which react with CO2. DTU has developed a new method using molecules from the human blood to remove CO2. The new technology could help prevent climate change. Babies who were just 10 months old and who later received a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder took less initiative than other children to communicate with adults. New research suggests that long-term stress is transmitted from human to dog. However, scientists from Syddansk Universitet are on the case using statistics to save endangered animals.
A neurotransmitter in the brain affects whether we gain or lose weight, a new study in mice suggests. In a democratic society, we need to teach children to become critically aware and understand how data processing and digital technologies really work. Biological insecticides are naturally derived pesticides that represent an environmentally friendly alternative to many of the existing pesticides used in agriculture.
More recently, spider toxins have been employed to develop highly specific pest control agents that have been introduced to the market. Snoring triggers a vicious cycle that can cause sleep apnoea and difficulty swallowing, according to Swedish research.
