  2. Uro 8B

    I am a Urologist.
    Urology is the surgical speciality that focuses on the kidneys, ureter, urinary bladder, urethra and the male and female reproductive systems.
    My name is Dr. Emily Roberts.
    I am 25 and I practised surgery at The Urology Institute for Young Surgeons.
    I went to medical school at the Urinary system at Royal Australasian College of Surgeon’s located in Northern Australia.
    I am very pleased to be involved in this episode of Survivor MD because something like this has never been on television before.
    I think some special skills I have that will help me are, knowing that I can tell what is going on with urinary system in the human body and I don’t give up until I know I’ve done a good job.

    • Great work by you and your team Emily.

      What would you do in the following situation? A member of another team needs your medical assistance. If you don’t help they will have to wait 6 hours for another urologist to be flown in. The person could die if they wait. If you stop and help your team will loose the Challenge and you could be voted out of Survivor MD. What do you do?

  17. Ways to keep your urinary track healthy

    Ways to keep your body healthy is to go easy on salt which makes you retain water. Too much salt stuffs up the balance of water, salt and mineral in your kidneys. This can end up damaging your kidneys because it rises your blood level. Which when it s uncontrolled it can damage your kidneys.
    One more way to keep your body healthy is to reduce your caffeine intake. Drinking stuff with caffeine in it may irritate your bladder. The Caffeine you drink the more you have to urinate.
    One more way to keep your body healthy is to drink when you feel thirsty.
    One more way to keep your body healthy is to Take extra water when you are out in the sun or doing exercise. You lose water when you sweat on hot, sunny days when you do exercise .So you need to drink more water as a result of it.

  20. It’s important to keep you muscles healthy, you can keep them healthy by…..

    -with exercise
    Always stretch before exercising to reduce risk of muscle pull or other injuries.
    Mix up your exercise, try to do different things because if you stick to the same thing you muscles effectiveness will decreases dramatically.
    Always do a cold down after doing exercise.
    Do exercise that increases your heart rate, like running swimming and walking.

    -with nutrition
    Eat plenty of fruit and vegetable because they are full of vitamins and minerals.
    Select low-fat or non-fat dairy products. Dairy products are rich in calcium. Strong bones are the foundation for building healthy muscles.
    Get your protein from meat, poultry, fish, nuts, eggs and beans. Proteins are the building blocks for bones and muscles.

  26. A lot of people these days eat fast foods and takeaways as it is more convenient and easy for a lot of people, especially people that are quite busy. People nowadays are working, taking care of their children or out of home a lot and often get too tired and lazy to cook a nutritious meal.
    If you do not exercise often enough or eat properly and enough, this will result in damage to your digestive system. There are certain things you have to think about before you eat. You must maintain a balanced healthy diet, exercise frequently and eat little junk foods in order to keep your digestive system healthy.
    A few ways to keep your digestive system healthy is to eat slowly. Most people eat fast and finish their meals quite speedily. Chewing slowly and properly is proven to help our bodies digest our food. Avoiding oily and fatty foods also helps our digestive system ad oil makes it harder for our enzymes to break down the food we have already eaten. Eating a lot of green and leafy vegetables helps improves out metabolism as fresh fruits and vegetables that are rich in fiber also help take out the toxic foods in our body and help detoxify the human body. Two things that also help digestion are onions and garlic. They also reduce extra fats from previously eaten food. Water helps the digestive system a lot as well, but people say not to drink ice cold water after meals. Exercising also helps the metabolic rate.

My skills include my vast knowledge of muscles, their power, how to keep them healthy etc. I am also good on prevention of diseases and, at least people tell me that, I can figure what diseases are quite quickly.

    Keeping your muscles healthy
    1. Swap refined grain (e.g. white bread) for whole grain (e.g. wholegrain bread).
    2. Eat some fruit right before you exercise (not too much though, because it could lead to fat build-up).
    3. Try eating low-fat or non-fat dairy products (e.g. milk, cheese).
    4. Get protein from meat, poultry, beans and things of that type.
    1. Stretch before doing any type of exercise to reduce risks of injury.
    2. Warm up before doing an intense workout/playing sports to slowly increase your heart rate.
    3. Practice exercises that increase your heart rate to keep your heart active and healthy.
    4. Change your routine of exercises often so the effectiveness does not decrease.
    5. Try to work all you muscle groups in different combinations.
    6. Avoid muscle cramping by cooling down and bringing your heart rate to its resting rate.

  49. 4 ways to keep your urinary system healthy:
    1. Drink lots of water
    To keep your urinary system healthy and free of blockages it is very important to drink water when you are thirsty. The American Dietetic Association recommends that you drink 8 normal size cups of water a day.

    2. Don’t eat too much salt
    If you have too much salt in your diet can lead to high blood pressure which can lead to damage to the kidneys. A high salt diet can also be the cause of the development of kidney stones.

    3. Reduce your Caffeine intake
    Any caffeinated beverages can irritate the bladder by increasing your need to urinate more often.

    4. If you are female wipe from front to back
    Both the anus and rectum have a lot of bacteria. If you wipe from front to back it ensures that you won’t get urinary tract infections.

    Our liver is one of the most important body parts-in fact it is the second most important organ next to the brain. Not only does the liver detoxify our bodies by breaking down chemicals that should not be there, but it also regulates vital functions of the body such as breaking down fats, production of proteins, and removing bacteria from the blood stream. The liver holds about 13% of the body’s blood at any given time and is constantly processing blood. For this reason, a healthy liver can be the difference between a healthy or unhealthy body. In order to promote normal liver functions here are three suggestions for keeping your liver healthy and functioning properly:

    Ways to keep your muscle system healthy. You should eat whole grains to keep your muscles moving quickly. Just about any exercise will help your muscles. Weight lifting will help keep your muscles strong. Doing pull- ups, sit- ups, pushups, lunges and swats everyday can keep your muscles in top shape. Doing regular cardio and aerobic exercises is fantastic for involuntary muscles. You should always eat healthy food, playing sport will help a lot too. Walking on a trend mill makes your muscles strong also. It’s also good to eat a balanced diet and drinking eight glasses of water per day. You should ever overdo exercising because you will end up with sore muscles afterwards. If you do over exercise they have a radox salt bath which soothes your muscles quicker and is very relaxing.

    c. What part of your body system does it affect (what organ or organs)?
    d. How does this part of the body system work?

    Things we learnt as a group would be, how severe cancer is, how the heart functions, plaque grows on the arteries and how the Circulatory System works.
