The police are the law enforcement personnel. They deal on a regular basis with avariety of unique situations and stressors. Occupational stress, if untreated, can lead to negative changes in police officers, specifically in their self-schemas and in how they perceive the communities in which they serve. The impact of an unhealthy or mentally impaired police officer has implications not only for the individual officer, but also for the society as a whole. A mentally and physically fit officer will respond more appropriately in a variety of situations that they encounter.

High serum CK levels are found in many muscular dystrophies as well as inflammatory, toxic, metabolic, and mitochondrial myopathies. The highest values are seen during attacks of myoglobinuria (“rhabdomyolysis”), a clinical syndrome of diffuse myalgia, myoglobinuria, and, often, renal failure. Idiopathic hyper CKemia indicates persistently elevated CK with no symptoms or minimal symptoms, such as muscle aches at rest or with exercise, muscle cramps, or stiffness. On examination, there should be no weakness, wasting, loss or increase of tendon reflexes, or fasciculations.

Endometrial proliferation which may develop into hyperplasia or even carcinoma or estrogen available from other sources.

Wound dehiscence is disruption of any or all of the layers in a wound. Dehiscence may occur in up to 3% of abdominal wounds and is very distressing to the patient. Wound dehiscence is an acute wound failure. Acute wound failure has been discussed under various names i.e. wound dehiscence, burst abdomen, wound disruption and evisceration. Despite advances in perioperative care and suture materials, incidence and mortality rates in regard to abdominal wound dehiscence have not significantly changed over the past decades.

Acute Appendicitis is one of the most common surgical emergencies. A delay in performing an appendicectomy in order to improve its diagnostic accuracy increases the risk of appendicular perforation and sepsis, which in turn increases morbidity and mortality. Diagnostic accuracy can be further improved through the use of ultrasonography or computed tomography imaging. However, these modalities are costly and may not be easily available when they are required.
