 Synonyms & Historicals
Diffusion .
Diffusions .
The tendency of a gas or solute to pass from a point of higher pressure or concentration to a point of lower pressure or concentration and to distribute itself throughout the available space. Diffusion, especially FACILITATED DIFFUSION, is a major mechanism of BIOLOGICAL TRANSPORT. .

Osmotic Shock .
The pressure required to prevent the passage of solvent through a semipermeable membrane that separates a pure solvent from a solution of the solvent and solute or that separates different concentrations of a solution. It is proportional to the osmolality of the solution. .
Judgment .
Judgments .
The process of discovering or asserting an objective or intrinsic relation between two objects or concepts; a faculty or power that enables a person to make judgments; the process of bringing to light and asserting the implicit meaning of a concept; a critical evaluation of a person or situation. .
Certificate of Need .
Need Certificate .
Need Certificates .
Need Certification, Health Care .
A certificate issued by a governmental body to an individual or organization proposing to construct or modify a health facility, or to offer a new or different service. The process of issuing the certificate is also included. .

Point of Care Technology .
Laboratory and other services provided to patients at the bedside. These include diagnostic and laboratory testing using automated information entry. .
Age Factors .
Age Reporting .
Age Factor .
Factor, Age .
Factors, Age .
Age as a constituent element or influence contributing to the production of a result. It may be applicable to the cause or the effect of a circumstance. It is used with human or animal concepts but should be differentiated from AGING, a physiological process, and TIME FACTORS which refers only to the passage of time. .
Manometry .
Manometries .
Tonometry .
Measurement of the pressure or tension of liquids or gases with a manometer. .
Protective Agents .
Protective Drugs .
Agents, Protective .
Drugs, Protective .
Synthetic or natural substances which are given to prevent a disease or disorder or are used in the process of treating a disease or injury due to a poisonous agent. .
