FDA-Approved Device Improves Managing of Medical Fluids

Hospitals, surgical facilities, doctors’ offices, and medical centers all face the same problem: how to safely dispose of the substantial amount of fluids that take place during surgeries and other medical procedures.These fluids include blood, urine, spinal fluid, ascites fluid and saline solution used to irrigate wounds and surgical incisions. Since they may contain pathogens like HIV or hepatitis, they can be dangerous.The standard method for managing fluids is suctioning into canisters, typically about one to three liters each. Once full, the canisters are either opened, and the fluid is dumped down the drain or opened and a solidifier is added and the canisters are then handled as regulated waste. These activities can expose medical workers to the infectious agents in the fluid. Given that a single surgery can fill up three or four containers, the risks can be substantial.That’s why some hospitals have moved to install a medical device that can suck the fluid out of the canisters…

Investment Report Sees Potential Value In Colorado Silver Project (geezywap)

geezywap. – Viscount Mining Corp (TSX-V: VML, OTCQB: VLMGF) is a Vancouver-based mining project generator. Its strategy is to seek out and acquire properties that have potential to contain large amounts of silver, gold, and other valuable metals. Then it conducts new rounds of exploration to see what’s actually in the ground and to pin down what the property is worth.Now it appears that this approach is paying off big time for Viscount. The company was able to acquire a property in the historic Hardscrabble Silver District of Colorado that had been assessed in the 1980s as containing more than 50 million ounces of silver. The property, named Silver Cliff, hadn’t been mined at the time.Last year, Viscount conducted a new round of test drillings at Silver Cliff. The results recently came in recently and confirmed that the property has some of the highest levels of silver ore ever measured in North America.Stock analysts are impressed.

Volunteer Fire Departments Work To Reach Next Generation (geezywap)

geezywap.
Volunteers make up more than two-thirds of the nation’s fire service and protect their communities from a wide range of emergencies. Yet many fire departments are having difficulty meeting the staffing needs that an all-hazards department requires.Call volumes have skyrocketed in recent years, tripling over the last three decades. At the same time, many fire service veterans are reaching retirement age, while there are fewer new recruits coming into the ranks.Department leaders are looking to recruit the next generation to fill the gap and step up to serve their community in a unique and rewarding way.A survey conducted by the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), the national nonprofit association representing the volunteer fire and emergency services, found that 44 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 34 have an interest in volunteering as an emergency responder. A barrier to people taking action on this is awareness: the same survey found that 79 percent of peo…

Clean Your Roof Now, Save Time And Money after (geezywap)

Geezywap. For many homeowners, the roof is out of sight and out of mind until a crisis occurs, such as a leak or storm damage.But the roof is subject to general wear and tear as well as environmental factors, and a proactive homeowner can catch problems early and address them effectively to prevent greater damage and create a better-looking roof. What It Is The growth of blue-green algae is a common problem on roofs, especially in areas with hot, humid summers, according to This Old House. Black or other colored streaks on the roof could signal the presence of the algae, and the streaks themselves are caused by the vegetation eating away at the mineral content on most roof shingles. The problem often goes unrecognized, and once it is serious enough to be noticed, it can be more challenging to clean. However, the right products can get the job done and prevent further algae growth. What To Do Take a two-step approach to help manage mold and improve your roof’s overall appearance:-Clea…

Boomers, Grandchildren gained Common Ground Through Music (geezywap)

grezywap.– "It was 20 years ago, today…" 50 years ago actually. June 2, 2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the release of, what many describe as "the greatest rock album of all-time" — "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band."The eighth studio album by The Beatles spent 27 weeks at the top of the U.K. charts and 15 weeks at no.1 in the U.S.This summer, Billy Shears and the gang were back on top, hitting no. 1 once again, as one of this year’s highest-selling albums. Many people remember exactly where they were the first time they heard one of the iconic songs included on the album during the Summer of Love.Considering that David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd and many more have also been listed at the top of the charts this year, one might be inclined to dust off an old turntable or 8-track tape player.But unlike the other classic music talent mentioned, The Beatles have inspired a new revolution these days, this time for kids even younger.Meet Buzz, …

Misconceptions About Conception (geezywap)

geezywap.
As straightforward as the idea of getting pregnant may seem, there is still a great deal of confusion about infertility. A survey of 500 participants, conducted by The Stork Ib2C, Inc. uncovers the most prevalent misconceptions about conception.When asked how long respondents assumed it would take to see a positive pregnancy test, nearly 56 percent thought only three to six months. In actuality, most will take up to a year to conceive. Fertility is often out of our control, and these false expectations can lead to disappointment and stress early on, and that can negatively impact fertility and the conception process.The survey also revealed a psychological impact from fertility issues as 38 percent described feeling sad or upset that others were pregnant while they were not.Although friends and family are supporting the couple’s success, not being able to give those loved ones the news they want to hear causes the same percent to feel unwanted pressure.Thirty-three percent w…

Trump Gets Little Air Cover From Fellow Republicans

Trump Gets Little Air Cover From Fellow Republicans BRIDGEWATER, N.J.—President Donald Trump returns to the White House Sunday after a working vacation at his New Jersey golf club, amid signs he has alienated some congressional Republicans by saying both white-nationalist demonstrators and counterprotesters deserved blame for the recent violent clash in Virginia.

He must help forge a consensus in Congress on a...
