Pablo Retana is an alumnus of the University of Costa Rica, a journeyman writer and future reclusive author. A self-styled skeptic, this worldview serves him well when writing professionally on medical and scientific subjects as he currently does. A reader, scrivener, editor, translator and critic in the vein of Hunter S. Thompson, a line of creativity that is more obvious in his private, stream-of-consciousness prose and literary and film critiques, items which will probably encounter the same fate as most of J.D. Salinger’s oeuvre

Breath of Life: The Aloha Complete Nasal Pillow System

It’s no coincidence that the Hawaiian word aloha allegedly is made up of alo meaning ‘front,’ or ‘face,’ and ha, meaning ‘breath of life’ or ‘essence of life.’ Because that’s exactly what the Aloha Complete Nasal Pillow System might mean for a person shopping medical supplies online in the respiratory category of Discount Medical Supplies.

Sleep awareness: Sleeping and Snoring medical supplies online

Submitted by Pablo Retana on 13:35

Mar 2nd to 9th will be National Sleep Awareness Week, and Hypnos knows we need medical supplies online for sleeping and to prevent snoring more than ever. Just the other day the CDC released a report indicating that 1 in every 3 adult Americans does not get enough sleep. Personally, I think the term ‘sleep awareness’ is a misnomer of the sort of ‘freedom fighters;’ freedom fighters do not fight freedom, they fight for freedom (or whatever their concept of freedom is). Likewise, the goal of sleep is not to be aware; it is to be blissfully unaware of the world around you for at least 7 consecutive hours. It’s like the phrase ‘you snooze, you lose.’ Well, with the following products available at Discount Medical Supplies, you snooze, you win.

Care for wounds during Hemophilia Awareness Month 2016

Submitted by Pablo Retana on 13:24

For caregivers who have to care for wounds of someone with hemophilia, every month is hemophilia awareness month. Especially if that someone is a child because, you know, boys will be boys – and I say that without the slightest trace of sexism; after all, hemophilia tend to affect men more – or at least they should be, in theory. In this day in age, in particular, you have to pry most kids away from their electronic devices and almost force them to come out and play. And regardless of helmets and elbow and knee pads – even if you entirely cover them with bubble wrap – they’re still going to get cut and scraped. And this is where the line in the sandbox is drawn between children with and without hemophilia; the former will bleed more and for longer.

Early symptoms of cystic fibrosis

Submitted by Pablo Retana on 16:35

The early symptoms of cystic fibrosis (CF) usually appear during the first year of life – though they may also develop until the teenage years and even later in life. One of the very first signs that parents observe is that the baby’s skin tastes salty when they kiss it. Generally speaking, though, the symptoms can vary from person to person depending on the organs and systems affected.

Early symptoms of whooping cough (pertussis)

Submitted by Pablo Retana on 15:38

The early symptoms of whooping cough – otherwise known as pertussis; or, the ‘100 day cough’ in China – are similar to those of a common cold. As a matter of fact, whooping cough – so named because of violent, rapid coughing that produces a loud ‘whooping’ sound – often goes unsuspected or undiagnosed until the patient experiences more serious symptoms. This respiratory tract infection progresses in three distinct stages, and the symptoms vary accordingly.

How can a caregiver create a safe infant sleep environment?

Submitted by Pablo Retana on 15:44

Parents and caregivers can create a safe infant sleep environment and reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). SIDS is the sudden, unexplained death of a baby younger than 1 year of age – in fact, it is the leading cause of death among babies between the ages of 1 month and 1 year. Since this sudden and silent disorder – which can occur anytime during a baby's first year, even if the baby seemed healthy – is more often than not associated with the periods during which the baby is asleep, it is also known as ‘crib death.’ Actually, the crib itself has nothing to do with SIDS, but the general sleep environment can certainly make a difference in what otherwise is a non-preventable occurrence.
