Examples of clinical in a Sentence

  1. Montoya Major:

    My initial thought, when I found out I was pregnant, was, What am I going to do with a child ? i was living in Florida, away from all my family and friends. Having kids was never a thought of mine. I wanted to pursue my degree and establish a career. MOM SHOCKED TO FIND POLICE AT HOUSE PLAYING BASKETBALL WITH HER SONS I knew that now, my entire thought process would have to be re-evaluated, and I needed to figure out what to do next, she continued. Though the director of Majors academic program told her it would be nearly impossible to complete her studies with two babies on the way, she remained laser-focused on her studies, attending class every single day literally until the day I gave birth, as per Facebook. In May 2018, little Makenna and Makinlee were born early via C-section. One week later, Montoya Major was back in the classroom. The proud mom told Fox News that she never would have been able to weather the challenging season of life without the support of family and friends, especially her dad. Her father raised her as a widow, and always championed the importance of education as his daughter was the first in their family to attend college. Throughout this entire journey my father encouraged me the most although he was not physically there. My father and I are very close and have always been inseparable after my mother passed when I was young, Montoya Major told Fox News. Whenever I had an episode of wanting to quit school he always encouraged me that it would be worth it in the end. Nevertheless, the collegian would later reflect on that journey as the hardest year of my life balancing her studies and clinical rotations with caring for two newborns on her own.

  2. Esther Freeman:

    Most of the patients were young, healthy and had a benign clinical course, i dont want people to think if they are having purple spots on their toes that they are going to end up on a ventilator in the ICU. That is not what we are seeing in the data.

  3. Mohamad Allaf:

    Certainly, staying a little longer may imply that this is a little bit more of a complex situation, the larger the growth in the kidney, the more side effects that can happen from the procedure, which would imply additional monitoring. Sometimes, a second stage of the procedure is performed because the growth, for example, may have multiple blood vessels, and so they may just want to evaluate for clinical success.

  4. Feixiong Cheng:

    Because our findings only establish an association between sildenafil use and reduced incidence of Alzheimer’s disease, we are now planning a mechanistic trial and a phase II randomized clinical trial to test causality and confirm sildenafil’s clinical benefits for Alzheimer’s patients.

  5. Stephen Xenakis:

    Military clinicians, particularly senior medical officers, justify participation in interrogations and force-feeding by asserting that the patient they’re responsible for is the nation and government and not the individual they are supposed to be helping, this assertion, or rationalization, absolutely violates all principles of clinical medicine and healthcare.
