Ang pagkakatulad ng mga gamot na may reseta at walang reseta ay ang sumusunod:
1. Ang mga produktong ito ay parehong ni reregulahan ng Food and Drugs Administration.
2. ang mga produktong ito parehong itinitinda sa mga botika o pharmacy.
3. Ito ay parehong gamot na nakakagaling, nakakalunas at ginagamit upang maka iwas sa ano mang uri ng mga sakit.
pagkakatulad na gamot na may reseta at gamot na walang reseta?
Halimbawa:Ang anti-biotic ay isa sa mga gamot na kailangan na may reseta ng doktor sapagkat kung mali ang iyong paggamit dito ay maaring makasama ito sa kalugusan. Kung masusubrahan ang tao sa maling paggamit ng anti-biotic maaring ma immune na ang kanyang bacteria dito at hindi na siya gagaling kahit anong inumin niyang anti-biotic. Ang paracetamol naman ay mga over the counter drugs ibig sabihin kahit na walang reseta ay puwede siyang mabili sa botika sa mga panahong biglang sumakit ang iyong ulo.Ngunit ang dalawang gamot na nabanggit ay nasa pamamahala ng Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), nabibili sa botika at parehong nakakagaling ng karamdaman.
there are many different germs and infections inside and outside of the healthcare setting. despite the variety of viruses and bacteria, germs spread from person to person through a common series of events. therefore, to prevent germs from infecting more people, we must break the chain of infection. no matter the germ, there are six points at which the chain can be broken and a germ can be stopped from infecting another person. the six links include: the infectious agent, reservoir, portal of exit, mode of transmission, portal of entry, and susceptible host.
infectious agent is the pathogen (germ) that causes diseases
reservoir includes places in the environment where the pathogen lives (this includes people, animals and insects, medical equipment, and soil and water)
portal of exit is the way the infectious agent leaves the reservoir (through open wounds, aerosols, and splatter of body fluids including coughing, sneezing, and saliva)
mode of transmission is the way the infectious agent can be passed on (through direct or indirect contact, ingestion, or inhalation)
portal of entry is the way the infectious agent can enter a new host (through broken skin, the respiratory tract, mucous membranes, and catheters and tubes)
susceptible host can be any person (the most vulnerable of whom are receiving healthcare, are immunocompromised, or have invasive medical devices including lines, devices, and airways)
a paradox is solved by finding the error in the seemingly valid logic. sometimes this requires unintuitive logic, and it more often than not requires thinking outside the box.
let me give a few examples to illustrate the point.
paradox of the heap of sand: one grain of sand is obviously not a heap. a million grains of sand is obviously enough to be a heap. one additional grain of sand does not make a non-heap into a heap. but then, when does a non-heap become a heap?
answer: the falsehood here is the implicit assumption that a collection of grains of sand is either 100% a heap or 100% not a heap with no middle ground. a “heap” is a mental schema, a mental class of things as it were, and since the human brain does not operate in absolutes, something can be “sort of a heap.” the weak point here is the law of excluded middle (a statement can only be true or false); setting it aside resolves the paradox.
