As summer approaches, many will begin swimming in pools, lakes, and the ocean. Swimming, a fun pastime, is enjoyable, yet extremely dangerous when proper precautions are not taken. Drowning is the fatal consequence of pool safety not being taken seriously.
According to the CDC, there is an average of 3,536 deaths as a result of unintentional drowning every year. Children aged 14 years and younger account for 1 of every 5 unintentional drowning deaths.
It is crucial to understand risk factors that contribute to drowning. These include swimming without the proper ability, lack of barriers around the body of water, lack of supervision, alcohol use, and preexisting medical conditions.
Meghan Holohan from Today.com writes, "For safer open water swimming the organization recommends teaching open water swimming, as well as pool swimming, and having a designated "watcher" who keeps an eye on swimmers the whole time they're in the water.&…

Ebola Cases On The Rise

Post By Max Gotlieb - Healthcare Reporter

Once again, there has been an outbreak of Ebola. This time the devastating virus has spread through the Congo. The World Health Organization (WHO) and other aid groups have taken notice. They seek to mitigate the effects of Ebola and stop the outbreak in its tracks. This occurrence of the virus is particularly concerning as there have been confirmed cases found in the city of Mbandaka, a densely-populated city that houses a busy river port.
Since its discovery in 1976 in the Democratic Republic of Congo (then Zaire), the virus has typically struck in remote areas, causing hemorrhagic fever among those infected. Between 2014 and 2016, there was a large outbreak of Ebola that killed nearly 11,000 people throughout West Africa.

ACLS Certification Eyes Virtual Reality Posted by Max Gotlieb - Healthcare Reporter



Virtual reality has transcended the notion that it is solely for entertainment purposes. No longer is virtual reality only used in video games and remote laboratories. Recently, the new technology has been adopted for practical uses. The complex computer functions work to simulate and recreate human senses and real situations. 
Obviously, this technology would seem to be perfect for medical applications. Now that virtual reality programs and devices have been matured and fine-tuned, locations such as the Children's Hospital Los Angeles have started to use it. Teaming up with AiSolve, Bioflight VR, and Oculus, they have constructed a training simulation for emergency pediatric trauma situations to ensure readiness, quick reactions, and proper ca

State by state CDC map at end of story.

One person has died in the E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce. There are now 121 confirmed cases across 25 states. Investigators continue to look for the source of the implicated romaine, as well as how it became contaminated. In the past week, public health officials confirmed 23 new cases and added three more states to the outbreak map. A week ago the case count stood at 98 people, making for a 23 percent increase in the number of infected people in seven days, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of those 102 victims for whom complete information is available, 52 have required hospitalization. California officials have reported one death in their state. The unusually high hospitalization rate of 51 percent shows the outbreak strain of E. coli O157: H7 is particularly dangerous. Also, 14 of the sick people have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure that can re…
