Every large business and factory needs to figure out how it is going to safely dispense of gases in the building. There are many gases and byproducts that are used in a factory, and the factory needs to be clear at all times to make sure it does not explode. The safety of everyone in the factory is at stake, and the owner of the factory must make sure that they are investing in safety. The best way for people to handle these gases is to use a recuperative thermal oxidizer.
The chimney or smokestack is something that takes all the gas out of the space. However, the chimney is something that holds the oxidizer unit. The unit is there to make sure that all the gas has been ignited. The ignited gas will go out of the chimney easily, and that is what people see when they drive by.
The thermal unit is going to flame all the gas whenever it gets into the space. This prevents the gas from building up inside the factory and igniting in an explosion. Read more…
Shaving involves use of sharp razors or blades. And if you are using sharp razor blades, it is not uncommon to get minor cuts or injuries. Any cut or injury is not desirable, how minor or small the cut/injury may be. Minor cuts can also be serious when it occurs in certain areas such as neck, groin, over joints (because of frequent stretching of skin during folding of a joint, such as elbow joint or know joint), underarm etc. There is also risk of infection if there is injury to skin, may be minor.
Why you should wax, instead of shaving: reason number one
Waxing pulls out hair by the root, which makes regrowth of hair longer and allow you to have hair free skin for a fortnight. So you can wax only twice a month instead of shaving daily, which may become troublesome and irritating and time consuming.
Why you should wax, instead of shaving: reason number two
Shaving may be problematic, if your skin is not smooth, especially if you have moles, skin tags, scar marks, keloids etc. over your skin where you need to shave. With waxing this is not a problem, as it involves putting hot wax over the skin and pulling it off after sometime. There is no risk of injury to moles, skin tags, scar marks, keloids etc.
Reason number three
Because waxing pulls out hairs by the root, the hairs that regrows after waxing are generally thinner and lighter, in compare to hairs that regrow after shaving. If you continue waxing for long duration, it is possible to have skin with barely noticeable hairs in it. The frequency of waxing can also be reduced. If you shave, the hairs that regrows loot thicker, because of the blunt ends of hairs after shaving. In case of waxing the effect is opposite. Over years it may be possible to reach a stage when you no more need waxing, although it may take many years and not everybody can reach that stage. Read more…
An abscess is collection of pus, which accumulates within a tissue and usually contains multinucleated white cells or neutrophils. Pus occurs as a result of an inflammatory response of body to an infective agent (commonly bacteria or parasite and viruses usually do not cause any pus formation) or due to a foreign body in a tissue (such as splinter, injection needles or bullet wounds). Pus formation is actually a defense mechanism of body, which helps in prevention of spread of infectious agents (bacteria and parasite) to other body parts.
How pus formation and abscess formation occurs?
The infectious agents (bacteria and parasite) or foreign body kills the cells in the local tissue area where it/they have lodged and cause release of cytokines (inflammatory mediator). Release of cytokines initiates an inflammatory response, which attracts large number of white blood cells (mainly multinucleated white cells or neutrophils). There is also increase in blood flow in the locality/area of inflammation. Many neutrophils die fighting infectious agents and form pus, which results in formation of abscess. Finally, there is formation of wall of the abscess. The wall or capsule of abscess is formed by surrounding local normal tissue in an attempt to prevent spread of infection to neighboring tissue or a distant tissue via blood stream. The wall may prevent infection from spreading, but it also prevents immune cells from attacking the bacteria present inside the abscess. Because of the wall of the abscess, there is no blood supply to the abscess and antibiotics are ineffective in treatment of abscess (the treatment of abscess in incision and drainage of pus).

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves removal of hair (individual hair follicles are removed and planted) from one place (known as “donor site”) to the bald area of the head known as “recipient site”, of the same individual. Hair transplantation is an example of auto-graft. Hair transplantation surgery is done by dermatologists. Hair transplant surgery is usually done to treat male pattern of baldness. Hair transplant surgery is minimal invasive surgical procedure, which involves grafting of individual hair follicles from a site of the same individual (patient) that is genetically resistant to balding.
Who is a candidate for hair transplant surgery?
- Most commonly hair transplant surgery is performed for male pattern of baldness.
- Sometimes, women with thinning of hair undergo hair transplant surgery
- Loss of hair from scalp due to burn or injury
- Other less common cases of hair transplant surgery involves hair transplantation to restore eye brows, eyelashes, beard, and mustache, chest hair or even to cover scars.
Who should not undergo hair transplant surgery?
- Women with larger area of baldness, or alopecia totalis (baldness of entire head/scalp)
- Patients with baldness due to medications, such as due to use of chemotherapy for treatment of cancer
- Patients who are genetically predisposed for keloid formation should not undergo hair transplant surgery
- Individuals with inadequate “donor site”, as they do not have enough number of hair follicles for transplantation
- Patients with alopecia universalis (total absence of hair in body), as they have no “donor site”
One of the most prevalent missteps of weight loss is the hard-line approach of shedding pounds in an instant. Such misguided diet plans lead to nagging hunger and cravings too strong to struggle against. When the stomach is empty, it produces a hormone called ghrelin that causes hunger. Ghrelin is a hormone that increases appetite, and also plays a role in body weight.
What if you could actually drop more pounds by eating more – by making a bit of shift and switch in your everyday food picks?
The trick is to stay full. To do away with the hunger hormone “ghrelin”, you have to feed on wholesome foods that curb the appetite. Smart weight loss is not letting your body go into super-restrictive eating mode, but about consistently making good food choices, and making gradual, steady transformations in your eating and exercise habits. Spreading six smaller meals all throughout the day operates on the basic principle of satisfaction. Small, frequent meals pacify the constant pangs of hunger. Each small meal should contain protein and fiber-rich complex carbohydrates. They give a feeling of gratification and satiation.
Here are 5 power grub and gulp that make you feel full:
Apples are filled with soluble fiber to keep you feeling sated, and its high water content helps fill your belly as well. Apples also contain pectin, which can help prevent blood sugar spikes that spur hunger. Apples also regulate your glucose and boost your energy level. Apple pectin can keep you full for 1-2 hours. Eat an apple before or after a meal to help keep you full faster and longer, or between meals to help keep blood sugar balanced and stave off cravings for high calorie no-no foods. Read more…
Hair transplantation is not a highly complicated procedure, in fact it is fairly simple procedure. However, like any other surgical procedure, hair transplantation is also not devoid of side effects. There are some minor complications or side effects associated with hair transplant surgery and to know the side effects well in advance before surgery, it becomes easier for patient to evaluate and be ready when side effects do appear.
If you are short of your confidence due to hair loss and planning to undergo hair transplant surgery, you can weigh pros and cons of hair transplant surgery, before deciding if you want to use it or not. Here are some common side effects that may appear during or after hair transplant surgery.
This is a common side effect. Bleeding during surgery is normal part of any surgical procedure. It is the excess bleeding that may be worrisome, sometimes. If there is excess bleeding, usually the surgeon apply pressure on the site of bleeding and it stops. If it does not stop with local pressure, surgeon may need to do extra stitching, sometimes. Usually bleeding is not a serious complication.
Thinning of hair:
It is not uncommon to notice thinning of your hair after hair transplant surgery. You may be worried, because you underwent surgery to improve thinning, but your hair thins instead of improving. There is nothing to worry, if thinning occurs, because within few months, the lost hair regrows and thickness comes back.
Infection after hair transplant surgery is rare, but it can occur. Commonly appropriate antibiotic coverage is given before and after hair transplant surgery, hence, infection is rare. If infection occurs after surgery, it can be controlled with proper antibiotics. Read more…
