Re: Now health personnel returning from West Africa treated like criminals in NY/NJ

In Viewpoints 1414247231.617

I am personally thrilled that the NY and NJ governors are doing what is necessary to protect those who live in their states, and I sincerely hope other governors follow suit and do the same. It is not okay and seems inconceivable to me, in fact, that those brave doctors who go over to help others with the ebola outbreaks are so cavalier toward the rest of us at home after having been exposed to a deadly pathogen that they may be secretly harboring and bringing right back home to us. It seems like a double standard. Help those in West Africa, but the heck with those living back in the USA. ... Continue Reading

 

Re: Dr. Nancy Snyderman to take a leave from NBC

On 10/25/2014 RibbonsAndBows said: Nice touch, RibbonsAndBows. Dr. Nancy has no one to blame but herself. She was the one in the limelight, and she just couldn't understand that her selfish actions would upset others. How does a doctor not take exposure to a Level 4 pathogen seriously? And how can she think she has the right to deny any and all responsibility for her own decision to violate her proudly proclaimed, self-imposed quarantine without any consequence?

Well, ladies, I don't particularly like wearing yellow gold with shoes that have silver embellishment, or with handbags that have silver hardware, or with a sweater that has silver thread woven throughout.

Re: Carpal Tunnel shots or surgery?

In Health & Fitness 1413728637.503

HI, Ringer. As someone who once experienced the pain of CTS for a short while (repositioning my hands when I typed, purchasing an ergonomic keyboard for my computer, and taking ibuprofen, which was an absolute Godsend, eliminated my problem entirely), I can understand your desire for information to put an end to your pain. When I had my first, and thankfully, only CTS experience, I know that I would have considered undergoing surgery without anesthesia at the time as the pain was so bad, how would I have even noticed the scalpel go in? I realized then why people underwent surgery to reliev... Continue Reading

 

Re: Question for Pitdakota...

Terrier, the reason that the actual figure for influenza deaths cannot ever be known is that not every patient who has influenza, or any other influenza-like illness (and there are a slew of other illnesses with similar symptoms, like enteroviruses, rhinoviruses, and para-influenza viruses to name a few), is given a laboratory test to confirm that what they suffer from is indeed influenza. It would be like a doctor stating that because you have a fever with chills and malaise, and body aches, that you have influenza. No doctor is omniscient, however, so without a laboratory test result con... Continue Reading

Negative air pressure rooms for ebola patients are a must, too, but they should have the capacity to handle hundreds of patients, rather than one or two. Sadly, only four hospitals in our nation are properly trained, prepared, and equipped to handle ebola patients. Our lo... Continue Reading
