Patient discussion about limit

Q. What is the limit........ What is the limit for a normal person to jump?

A. Next time you watch a basketball or volleyball game, notice how high the athletes jump to block a shot or spike the ball. Ever wonder if you could jump as high? Stand next to a wall with a short pencil in your hand and hold your arm as high above your head as you can, keeping your feet flat on the floor. Make a mark on the wall to note your standing reach. Then jump as high as you can, keeping your arm high above your head. At the top of your jump, make another mark on the wall. It works best to stand close to, but not touching the wall when you jump. The difference in height between the two marks is a measure of how high you jumped. You may be able to jump higher if you change how much you bend your knees before jumping. If you don't bend your knees much, you don't get much extra push. On the other hand, a deep crouch overstretches the thigh muscles, making them less efficient in pushing you off the ground. Experiment to find the amount of knee bend that gives you the most height. Swi

Q. Is there a limit to how long the suit should be worn? Hi, my wife Lee, 36 always wear sauna suit for very long walk in hot sun. I am concerned because she walks alone and takes diet pills to boost metabolism. Is there a limit to how long the suit should be worn?

A. While doing this, she should be very careful. Sauna suits help to keep the muscles warm and that is what causes the sweat and they do not necessarily promote weight loss. She has to keep herself hydrated! Ask her to drink tons of water because her body is rapidly losing it. In other words, the weight loss is more water which can be gained back very quickly. I would recommend weight training and cardio exercise at least 4 times a week. Also, exercising in the morning has great metabolic effects. Therefore, put an end to diet pills because they are not good for your wife!!

Q. Have alcohol-related crashes decreased in other states when they lowered the limit? I have a doubt even after updating with the local news. Have alcohol-related crashes decreased in other states when they lowered the limit?

A. Wisconsin has seen nearly a two percent decrease in alcohol-related crashes and almost a fourteen percent decrease in alcohol-related fatalities a year after implementing a .08 law. Since South Dakota put .08 in effect in 2002, alcohol-related crashes have decreased by 2.1 percent from the average of the previous three years.

The obtained values of LoD, LoQ, and LoB in each automated analyzer are summarized in Table 1, showing the high analytical sensitivity of the assay.
In all Estonian coastal water samples analysed, PFAS (PFOS, PFOA, etc.), phenolic substances (nonylphenols and nonylphenol ethoxylates, octylphenols and octylphenol ethoxylates), bisphenol A, and triclosan were below the LOQ. From phenolic substances only 4-NP was detected above the LOQ (<10 ng/L) in some Estonian coastal water samples (from <10 ng/L to 66 ng/L in the coastal area near Sillamae).
LOD (limit of detection) and LOQ (limit of quantitation) levels were established for each analyte, based upon a signal-to-noise (s/n) of > 3/1 for the LOD and >10/1 for the LOQ.
For cadmium, values were below the limit of quantification (LOQ = 0.04 [micro]g [g.sup.-1]) for almost all samples except for those of viscera of wild shrimps.
The LOD was calculated from the mean value obtained with eighteen blank corn samples plus three standard deviations and the limit of quantification (LOQ) was the mean value plus ten standard deviations.
The Limit of Quantification (LOQ) should not be higher than 100 [micro]g/kg for MCPD and glycidol bound to fatty acid esters in edible oils and fats.
The validation strategy method included the verification and determination of parameters such as selectivity, recovery, linearity, limit of detection (LOD), limit of quantification (LOQ), precision and accuracy in spiked bean samples (FDA, 2001).
