ACLS and BCLS: What Are They and Who Needs Them

ACLS and BCLS are integral credentials for medical professionals to have. ACLS is short for Advanced Cardiac Life Support, while BCLS is short for Basic Cardiac Life Support. BCLS is also known as BLS, Basic Life Support. It is recommended that doctors are well-versed and certified in both. These certifications prepare trainees for a wide range of heart conditions and complications that are likely to occur in a medical setting. These skills are applicable for resuscitation and cardiac support in hospitals and in the field.  BCLS is not limited to medical professionals. CPR is a common term for BCLS. The certification is very common, as medical professionals, dentists, first responders, and lifeguards are typically required to be certified to obtain a license to work in their respective fields. Being certified in ACLS is more difficult, yet it is recommended for more advanced cardiac life support situations where a higher degree of knowledge is required to properly assess and manage situ…

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.
A result of animals from tropical regions, Ebola has been traced to have originated from bats. Other possible hosts of the virus are the hunted African animals, namely monkeys and apes that are killed for food.

ACLS Certification Eyes Virtual Reality

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

What is ALS, The Disease That Killed Stephen Hawking?

(CNN)Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, more commonly known as ALS, is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease. It affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that make the muscles of both the upper and lower body work. Those nerve cells lose their ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which leads to paralysis and death. People with the condition lose control of muscle movement, eventually losing their ability to eat, speak, walk and, ultimately, breathe. Its most famous sufferer was famed physicist Stephen Hawking, who died on Wednesday at the age of 76. ALS is also called Lou Gehrig's disease, named after the famous baseball player who retired in 1939 because of the condition. Other notable sufferers actor David Niven, NBA Hall of Famer George Yardley and jazz musician Charles Mingus. Little is known about the causes of the disease, and there is currently no cure. The condition is slightly more common in men than women. Unusually long life-span Hawking, diagnose…

Wny You Should Talk To Your Dog

It is known that talking to one's baby improves bonding between parent and child. Well, many pet owners view their pets as their own children, but does talking to your dog in the same way as you would a human infant have the same bonding effect? A recent study suggests so.    


Published Sunday 11 March 2018 By 
Fact checked by Jasmin Collier
If you have a dog, you're likely in the habit of asking them, "Who's a good boy?" in a really high-pitched and affectionate tone of voice — sometimes to the amusement of those around you. Pet owners do this instinctively because they feel just as attached to their pets as they may to their infant. But does this sort of "baby talk" do anything for the dog? Researchers Alex Benjamin and Katie Slocombe, at the University of York in the United Kingdom, set out to investigate if so-called dog-speak improves bonding between pets and humans, and specifically, whether it is useful for the dogs. Slocombe explains the …
