DEPRESSION

 When discussing depression  as  a symptom, a feeling of  hopelessness is the most often  described sensation.  Depression is a common  psychiatric disorder in the  modern world and a growing  cause of concern for health  agencies worldwide due to the high social and economic costs involved. Symptoms of depression, like the disorder itself, vary in degree of severity, and contribute to mild to severe mood disturbances. Mood disturbances may range from a sudden transitory decrease in motivation and concentration to gloomy moods and irritation, or to severe, chronic prostration.

ASTHAMA

 Today asthma is viewed  as a chronic long-lasting  inflammatory disease of  the airways. In those  susceptible to asthma,  this inflammation causes  the airways to narrow  periodically. This, in turn,  produces wheezing and breathlessness, sometimes to the point where the patient gasps for air. Obstruction to air flow either stops spontaneously or responds to a wide range of treatments, but continuing inflammation makes the airways hyper-responsive to stimuli such as cold air, exercise, dust mites, pollutants in the air, and even stress and anxiety.

BLOOD PRESSURE

 Blood pressure is the  force of the blood against  the artery walls.  High  blood pressure  (hypertension) and low  blood pressure  (hypotension) can both  cause cardiovascular  problems. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring or tilt table tests may be used to diagnose these conditions. There are many types of high blood pressure, which may be treated with antihypertensive medications, such as diuretics, beta blockers and ACE inhibitors.

COLOR BLINDNESS

 Color blindness is an  abnormal condition  characterized by the  inability to clearly  distinguish different  colors  of the spectrum.  The  difficulties can be  mild to  severe.
