Posted: October 18, 2015

Pretend it is your birthday and there is a beautifully decorated cake in front of you with candles lit and glowing. Friends and family gather around to root as you take the deepest breath you can to blow them all out. This act of blowing out birthday candles actually represents a real maneuver that is used to measure lung function. When a patient takes a deep breath and blows as hard and fast as he can into a machine called a Spirometer, the machine measures the volume of air exhaled within the first second. It can also measure the entire volume of air exhaled until that point where you think you have blown out every last drop of breath you have and you gasp for the next breath. The first measurement is known as FEV1, or Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second and the second measurement is FVC, or Forced Vital Capacity.

Advances in dentistry
Posted: October 18, 2015

The old story of President George Washington crossing the Delaware River with wooden teeth is actually not true. Washington actually had one natural tooth remaining when being sworn into office, and his special set of dentures were made from ivory, brass and gold.
