HUNYADI János

[Several diseases are accompanied by hypoxic stress; elimination of it is an important physiological process. Our body provides a protective function which delays damage and destruction by hypoxia. In case of necrosis, it provides the mop up of the damaged area.

KEGYE Adrienne, ZANA Ágnes, RÉVAY Edit, HEGEDÛS Katalin

[The improvement of the Hungarian hospice network and the increasing number of people dealing with the seriously ill are reflected by the annual hospice reports (2001-2013).

[Illness representation of patiens with migraine and tension headache]

AMANDA Illés, NAGY Beáta Erika

[It’s been proven by many scientific observation that patients describe their diseases both in progression and adaptation in a different manner even though having a similar origin. The reason behind is the various cognitive background. The investigation of this cognitive function may help us understand patients personal reactions better. In 2007 I investigated the effect of three factors (type, understanding and duration of the disease) on illness representation in patients suffering from... tovább »
