    Hello.... good topic but was difficult to read. However I wanted to know that does this psychological stress have some relation with altering their cardiac health ?? I have read some articles in which it is shown that stress in posriasis leads to alteration of lipid profile which can lead to cardiac problems ...

    Dear Ms. Bhavita patel,
    Thanks for comment, you can see the below a lot of study who reported that is an association between psoriasis and cardiac problems along with many other diseases.
    (Ginsburg and Link, 1989;Gupta et al, 1993; Finlay and Coles, 1995; Fortune et al, 1997a, 2000, 2002a; Leary et al, 1998; Krueger et al, 2001;Richards et al, 2001) report that disability in psoriasis is similar to cancer, arthritis, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, and depression. Rapp et. al. (1999, Porter et al, 1986) patients with psoriasis report more distress than patients with other forms of skin disease. Fava et al, (1980, Flor et al, 1987, Walsh et al, 1999) revealed that research in chronic illness has found increased levels of depression in partners of those with chronic pain, renal and heart diseases.

    Dear Surriya,
    i commend your work. Nightingale's work opined nurses to manage environment so as to support ill patient, but this is quite difficult in Nigeria where most environment are very detrimental and predisposing to most ill health. in environment like government and medical profession who feel they owns the patient, it is easy to adjust them?

      Dear Umoh, Edet Okon ,
      Thanks for comments ,yes I agree with you but as nurses, we have challenges every where in the world however,we should have the courage and determination to work for it and believe me with continued struggle you can convince the people to bring a change.Recall the struggle of Nightingale who decreased the death rate of soldiers from 42% to 2% in Creamion war by taking measures in environmental factors despite of a strong opposition from the then surgeon General .
