After a South Carolina teen passed away last month from drinking an excessive amount of caffeine, many now worry about exactly how much caffeine they can have in one day. Davis Allen Cripe ingested the caffeine that ultimately caused his death from a large diet Mountain Dew, a latte from McDonald’s and finally an energy drink. All this happened throughout the course of only 2 short hours.

Home Care Medical Supplies Maybe Useful for Pre-Hospice Care

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 14:36

Demand for home care medical supplies could be on the rise (the supply is right here at Discount Medical Supplies) thanks to a new pre-hospice care program developed by a San Diego health system. Most elderly people would rather have months to live than years if they could spend their remaining time on this Earth at home instead of a hospital. Unfortunately, those months would quickly turn into mere days if the patient failed to receive medical treatment that only hospitals are equipped to administer. As a result, San Diego-based not-for-profit integrated regional health care delivery system created Transitions.

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 10:28

Yoga – which you can’t practice without medical supplies online such as this mat – may help improve the quality of life of people who experience the inflammatory bowel disease ulcerative colitis (UC), according to a study published in the journal Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics. “Perceived stress seems to be a risk factor for exacerbation of ulcerative colitis,” wrote the authors. “Yoga has been shown to reduce perceived stress.” And then they presumably shouted ‘Eureka!’ while a 25-watt light bulb appeared over their heads. Stress-aggravated ulcerative colitis can result in such daily life-disrupting symptoms as diarrhea, abdominal pain and cramping, rectal pain and bleeding, fatigue, fever, and inability to defecate despite urgency to do so – otherwise known as ‘phantom defecation.’

Why is it important for female doctors to know where to get inexpensive medical supplies such as laryngoscopes, ophthalmoscopes and otoscopes, pen lights, reflex hammers, stethoscopes, tongue depressors, and other diagnostic accessories? According to the first annual physician compensation report by professional network for healthcare professionals Doximity, female physicians earn approximately $91,000 – or 26.5% – less a year on average than their male counterparts. The researchers compared compensation reports from 36,000 full-time U.S. physicians from 2014 to 2017 and adjusted their findings for factors such as specialty, geography, years of experience, and reported weekly work hours.

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 17:33

Where to get inexpensive medical supplies for spring weather, indeed? And why? The answer to the first question is Discount Medical Supplies online. The answer to the second is this: medical supplies can help you survive that unpredictable spring weather. Spring is the menopause – or andropause, so as to not offend members of the female persuasion – of seasons; temperatures can change from pleasant and refreshing to ice-cold and back again at the drop of a hat. A storm can break out in the middle of the most peaceful day and last for a week. Like Knight Rider and its 2008 revival, spring weather preparedness is all about two kits; an emergency kit and a first kit.

Could light therapy medical supplies wake comatose patients?

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 16:21

Light therapy medical supplies such as this help relieve circadian rhythm sleep disorders. A new Austrian study suggests that shining bright lights on comatose patients to promote their natural circadian rhythms could help them wake up. This research is of course very preliminary and the sample used too small, therefore it would be wisest not to jump to any conclusions whatsoever. It does make sense, though; don’t want someone to Go Into the Light? Then bring a light of your own. You know, “let the midnight special shine a light on me.”

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 17:03

When you think of elderly medical supplies you probably picture incontinence products or mobility aids. However, you should also include fitness supplies in that category. Not just because you’re never too old to exercise – Jack LaLanne, anybody? – but also because aerobic exercise and resistance training can boost brain power and improve thinking and memory skills in adults aged 50 and older, according to a new study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Researchers from the University of Canberra in Australia reviewed 39 studies published through 2016 in order to determine the impact of exercise on brain health in this age group.

Use rehab and pain management supplies, not scorpion venom

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 11:55

Rehab and pain management supplies are so widely and affordably available at medical supply stores such as Discount Medical Supplies that it is very easy to take them for granted. And yet just 331 miles from Miami – but all the way over in the Third World – Cubans have been reduced to using venom from live scorpions to relieve musculoskeletal pain. Such is the case of 71 year old Pepe Casañas who, according to Fox News, “keeps a scorpion in his hat in case he starts to feel a pain he needs to treat.” And that’s just his travel scorpion, you know, in case of an emergency. In addition to that one, he has three or four scorpions at home for his monthly needs.

Cheap Medical Stuff Online for Diabetic to Exercise With

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 16:35

Cheap medical stuff online – especially fitness medical supplies – can be very important for people who have diabetes. According to the CDC, physical activity makes one more insulin-sensitive, helps control blood glucose levels and decreases the risk of heart disease and nerve damage.

Luckily, you can convert your house into your very own home gym at a very reasonable and accessible price courtesy of Discount Medical Supplies. However, fiduciary trouble is not the only thing standing diabetics and exercise.
