HIFU treatment

HIFU Treatment: What You Need to Know

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a type of cancer treatment that uses sound waves to kill cancer cells. Sound waves can be focused on a very small area, which makes them useful for treating cancer.

HIFU is most commonly used to treat prostate cancer, but it can also be used to treat other types of cancer, such as pancreatic cancer, liver cancer, and breast cancer.

HIFU treatment is usually done as an outpatient procedure, which means you can go home the same day. The procedure usually takes less than 2 hours.

Before the procedure, you will be given a sedative to help you relax. You will lie on your back on a table. A gel will be placed on your skin over the area where the sound waves will be focused. A special device that produces sound waves will then be positioned over the gel. The device will emit sound waves that travel through the gel and your body.

Your doctor may have you drink a lot of fluids before the procedure to help prevent kidney stones.

Your doctor may also give you a medication to help you relax.

An ultrasound is a medical procedure that uses sound waves to look at areas inside the body. It is also called sonography.

Ultrasound is used to look at organs, blood vessels, tendons, muscles, joints, and to check a baby’s development in the womb.

Ultrasound can be used to look at almost any part of the body. It is a painless procedure that does not use ionizing radiation (such as x-rays). Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show movement of the body’s internal organs as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.

During the procedure, the sound waves will be focused on the cancer cells. The sound waves will heat up and kill the cancer cells.

After the procedure, you will be taken to a recovery room to rest. You may have some side effects, such as pain, blood in your urine, and burning when you urinate. These side effects are usually mild and go away within a few days.

What are Percolator Bubblers?

Also known as ‘Perc’ and water pipes, these are the types of bubblers that the person might prefer using if he/she wants to have a smoke that feels smoother and cooler than when using the other types. This type diffuses the smoke making the smoking process smoother and easier. There are, again, a lot of options available in this type of bubbler having their pros and cons. They are as follows:-

  • Tree Percolator

Shaped just like a tree, it has one tree limb which is at the top through which several rods are connected. The air while passing from the main limb and settling at the base, diffuses the bubbles and offers filtration to the maximum level.

  • Honeycomb Percolator

It has a shape similar to its name- a flat disk with several holes in it. These are, most of the time, found in bongs with straight tubes. The studded flat disks one above the other create a chamber-like structure, helping in smoothly passing the smoke.

  • Showerhead Percolator

One of the most famous choices, there are somewhat similar to the shape of a showerhead having holes and slits along with the percolator placed on the bong on its neck.

  • Turbine Percolator

This type of percolator has glass slabs with edges that have slits in them. For its proper functioning, these are combined with honeycomb percolators.

  • Diffused Down-stem Percolator

This type has many slits in the bottom part of the instrument which helps in the purpose of passage of air smoothly to the base.

  • Inline Percolator

In this type, there are multiple slits present on the horizontal tube. The location of it is present at the bottom of the bong. More the number of slits, the better the percolation.

  • Fritted Percolator

The structure of this type of percolator is such that flat disc-like layers are present in the tube bong that are straight in shape. This creates chambers in it which helps in the smooth passage of air through it.

Thus, these are the different types of Percolator Bubblers and people can choose among these according to their needs and suitability.
