How to use marrow in a sentence?

  1. Maureen Nemetski:

    I drilled a hole into her shin bone and placed an intraosseous line -- a bone catheter -- so that we could inject platelets and medications into her blood through her bone marrow. I can not imagine her parents' horror on hearing the crack of the drill bit into their baby's leg, we took turns pounding on this baby's chest and trying to pump air into lungs that had filled with blood.

  2. Vladimir Pitulko:

    Indeed, these animals provide an endless source of different goods: food with meat, fat and marrow; fuel with dung, fat and bones; and raw material with long bones and ivory, they certainly would use them as food, especially certain parts like tongue or liver as a delicacy, but hunting for the ivory was more important.

  3. Bobby Elesky:

    There were times when the air quality was so bad that you would just drop to your knees and throw up, we made jokes at the time because we had no idea how serious it was.’ But Elesky says he found out when he returned home in 2005 and was told during a checkup that he had nearly 20 parasites in his body. More than a decade after his return, Elskey has suffered from myriad health issues, including plasmacytoma -- a condition where rare tumors attack soft tissue in the nasal cavity or bone marrow. He is grateful for the treatment he has received from the VA, but said the bureaucracy was difficult to deal with. Elesky said he was initially denied enrollment into the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs’ Burn Pit Registry -- which was created to research and examine the potential threats from burn pit exposure.

  4. Laura Makaroff:

    In addition to chemotherapy, certain types of immunotherapy, stem cell or bone marrow transplants, and other medicines can severely weaken the immune system.

  5. Jake Prus:

    There was a little apprehension when I first heard about it, because you think a bone-marrow donation is going to be kind of intense and take you out for a while physically and just drain you, i ’m not too worried about it, because, from what I’ve been told, the post effects are n’t painful.
