$200,000 Initial Cash Committed for Relief Effort, FedEx and Healthcare Companies Step Up as Emergency Unfolds

GOLETA, Calif., April 6, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — Direct Relief today committed an initial $200,000 in cash and made available $32 million in medical resources for relief and recovery efforts in Colombia and Peru, where historic flooding and mudslides have claimed hundreds of lives and displaced hundreds of thousands more.

Today’s commitment follows several emergency air shipments from Direct Relief of medical aid totaling $7.8 million and 38 tons (76,000 lbs.).

“People in Peru and Colombia are facing severe risks in the wake of devastating storms, and Direct Relief is extending support to our capable partner organizations providing frontline care in a still unfolding, complex emergency,” said Direct Relief President and CEO Thomas Tighe.

Water sources often become compromised after serious flooding, which can lead to a host of health issues. Cholera and other diseases related to poor sanitation pose additional threats to public health. Neglected tropical diseases including trachoma, soil-transmitted pathogens, and various bacterial and parasitic infections also present risks to people in the area.

Bolstered by strong support from corporate partners that include AbbVie, Allergan, Actavis, Baxter, BD, Boehringer Ingelheim, Teva, Pfizer, and Unilever, Direct Relief is sending antibiotics, antivirals, rehydration supplies and hygiene kits. FedEx has provided emergency airlift support.

In Peru, Direct Relief is assisting four partner organizations providing emergency services and conducting medical missions in close coordination with the Peruvian Ministry of Health. Patrulla Area Colombiana (PAC, a Colombian NGO of pilots and medics), Asociacion Paz Peru, Socios en Salud (Partners in Health), and Asociacion Vida Peru have received and distributed $3.9 million of essential medications and supplies totaling 17.5 tons to eight hard-hit regions: Lima, Huarmey, Piura, Pedregal Alto, Simbila, Tumbes, Casma, and Arequipa. Direct Relief also is funding the deployment of 20 medical personnel to Piura to provide medical care and deliver seven tons of medicine and medical supplies. Keep Reading

Its unique design promotes safety during patient transport

CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 6, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — Healthcare providers often transport bariatric patients from one room to another in beds that are powered by integrated universal transport systems. Traditional systems propel beds forward and backward, yet caregivers continued to struggle when maneuvering around corners and in tight spaces. With increasing regulation around staff injuries related to lifting and overextension, Joerns Healthcare is delivering an innovative solution: the Chauffeur™ Universal Transport System with the world’s first side-to-side drive. The Chauffeur, a four-way directional transport system, was designed to improve bed maneuverability, improve staff efficiency and prevent injury during patient transport.

SideShift
Chauffeur’s power not only propels beds forward and backward, but Joerns’ exclusive SideShift feature also moves the bed side to side. This minimizes the effort required to reposition beds in rooms and elevators and reduces the need for two attendants.

“The Chauffeur is one of a kind,” said Jim Mulligan, Healthcare Beds Product Manager for Joerns Healthcare. “There is no need to strain to reposition the bed. Caregivers can now navigate with ease.

“By transporting patients in bed and avoiding patient transfers, facilities can reduce staff back injuries, patient skin injuries and patient anxiety,” Mulligan explained. “The Chauffeur equips providers with an effective and intuitive tool to make bed transport significantly easier, safer and more efficient than ever before.”

With safe and efficient powered transport, more emphasis can be placed on personalized patient care. Keep Reading

The ultrasound detection segment dominated the market in 2016. However, the cell-free DNA in maternal plasma tests segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR. This is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for cf-DNA based techniques in NIPT testing and rising government initiatives to provide prenatal services.

On the basis of application, the market is segmented into Trisomy, microdeletion syndrome, and other applications. Trisomy commands the largest and fastest-growing application segment of the global market in 2016. This is attributed to factors such as increasing maternal age and rising incidence of chromosomal abnormalities. Keep Reading

Body Weight Fluctuations Linked to More Deaths in People with Coronary Artery Disease

NEW YORK, April 5, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — Repeated cycles of weight loss and gain may be linked to higher risk for stroke, heart attack, and death in people with pre-existing coronary artery disease, according to a study published online April, 5 in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Led by researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center, the study was the first to measure the effect of “weight cycling” on health outcomes in people with pre-existing heart disease. People with the largest weight changes were found to experience 136 percent more strokes, 117 percent more heart attacks, and 124 percent more deaths than those with the smallest shifts in weight.

Those in the high-fluctuation group had weight changes as large as 3.9 kilograms (or roughly 8.6 pounds), while weight varied by around 0.9 kilograms (just under 2 pounds) in the group with the smallest shifts in weight.

“Our findings suggest that we need to be concerned about weight fluctuation in this group that is already at high risk due to coronary disease,” says lead study author Sripal Bangalore, MD, director of the cardiovascular outcomes group in the Cardiovascular Clinical Research Center at NYU Langone.

“Even though this analysis was not designed to find out the causes of increased risk with body weight fluctuations, we need to examine how we can help Americans keep weight off, rather than having it go up and down,” says Bangalore, an associate professor of medicine in the Leon H. Charney Division of Cardiology. Keep Reading
