Transfusin de sangre - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Su mdico puede recomendarle que reciba una transfusin de sangre para tratar su afeccin mdica o para salvar su vida. Su sangre transporta oxgeno y nutrientes a todos sus tejidos y retira el dixido de carbono y otros productos de deshechos de estos. La sangre tambin ayuda a combatir la infeccin y a cicatrizar las heridas. La sangre est formada por una porcin de lquidos y componentes celulares. El lquido, llamado plasma, es en donde los nutrientes, hormonas, factores de coagulacin y otros qumicos se disuelven. Los componentes celulares, en vez de disolverse, se suspenden en el plasma. Estn formados por glbulos rojos que transportan el oxgeno y el dixido de carbono. Los glbulos blancos que combaten la infeccin y plaquetas que son sub-clulas pequeas que ayudan a la sangre a coagularse. Las clulas sanguneas se producen en la mdula sea, un tejido suave que se encuentra dentro de varios de sus huesos. Una transfusin de sangre utiliza sangre donada para reabastecer de glbulos rojos, glbulos blancos, plaquetas, factores de coagulacin, plasma o sangre completa. Entre las circunstancias que pueden requerir de una transfusin de sangre se encuentran prdida de sangre como consecuencia de traumatismo, ciruga del corazn u otra ciruga mayor, trasplante de rganos, trastornos hemorrgicos como hemofilia, anemia severa, incluyendo anemia de clulas falciformes, tratamiento para la leucemia u otro tipo de cncer, trastornos que destruyen las clulas sanguneas o la mdula o incompatibilidad RH en recin nacidos. Para iniciar la transfusin se insertar una aguja intravenosa en la vena de su mano o brazo. Se colgar cerca una bolsa que contiende la sangre donada, y la sangre gotear lentamente a travs de un tubo anexado a la aguja intravenosa permitiendo que corra por su vena hacia su torrente sanguneo. Durante toda la transfusin se controlar su temperatura, frecuencia cardaca, respiracin y presin arterial. Luego que la bolsa est vaca, se colocar otra bolsa en el tubo intravenoso en caso necesite ms sangre. Cuando la transfusin finalice, se retirar la aguja. Luego de la transfusin, su mdico controlar sus signos vitales para asegurarse de que no tenga una reaccin adversa. Si es necesario, posiblemente se le administre un diurtico para reducir cualquier hinchazn o retencin de lquido.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."
