Opioid Epidemic: Surgeon General to mail 2.3 million letters

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 14:03

The Surgeon General of the United States Dr. Vivek Murthy will need some rehab and pain management supplies when he finishes writing the 2.3 million letters he intends to mail to every doctor in America. If we were to speculate on the contents of the letter, it might go a little something like this: “You must send this on in 3 hours after reading the letter to 10 different people. If you do this you will receive unbelievably good luck. If you do not, each and every one of your patients will start overdosing on prescription opioid painkillers one by one. This is not a joke. You have read the warnings, seen the cases, and the consequences. You must send this on or face dreadfully bad luck.”

Not ready to breastfeed for a whole year? Try a breast pump

Everything’s better with pumps. Athletic shoes. Thanksgiving turkeys. Breastfeeding. If only there were some kind of medical supplies online that could extract milk from the breasts of a lactating woman. According to the 2016 Breastfeeding Report Card from the CDC, 81.1% of mothers in the United States of America breastfeed their newborn babies. Momma’s got a squeeze box, all right.  The early postpartum period is key to establish and supporting breastfeeding, so that part’s covered. However, only 51.8% continue to give suck after six months, and only 30.7% do so for at least one year. Well, women do get tired of just that all the time, that’s why you gotta explore.

Opioid substitute being developed, meanwhile try TENS units

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 17:06

What if there was an alternative to morphine with all its pain-relieving properties but without its dangerous or addictive side effects? An LA Times article more or less asks that question. A better question would be, what if that alternative already existed? Such as TENS units, which offer a non-invasive, drug-free, and virtually side effect-free form of pain management. Notwithstanding the fact that TENS unit supplies have been around for years and are easily available at Discount Medical Supplies, scientists from several universities in the United States spent years developing a new opioid candidate called PZM21, and which they unveiled on Wednesday, August 17th.

Pain, fever medical supplies do not worsen children’s asthma

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 17:00

Medical supplies for pain and fever, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, do not make asthma worse in children. The findings of a new (and so far only) blinded, randomized, controlled trial from the Boston Children's Hospital for the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute's Asthma Network fly in the face of previous studies, which appeared to suggest that giving children acetaminophen for pain or fever would intensify their asthma. “We found no matter how you slice it, there was absolutely no difference between Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Motrin (ibuprofen),” senior investigator and corresponding author Dr. Wanda Phipatanakul of Boston Children's Hospital's Division of Allergy and Immunology said. “Our findings should alleviate the concerns for safety that were based on observational data.”

Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 17:38

Why risk life and limb using supplements made with harmful ingredients when you can resort to safe medical supplies online? This is the question that Consumer Reports investigation seems to be asking – at least the first part of the question; the second part comes courtesy of Discount Medical Supplies. Anyway, the consumer advocacy website identified fifteen supplement ingredients with potential side effects ranging from nausea to cancer. We would like to complement this commendable effort by suggesting a few reasonable – as well as reasonably-priced – alternatives for some of these noxious ingredients.
