Explaining Radiation in Layman’s Terms

It will definitely reduce if not totally eliminate a patient’s fear of radiation if the radiologic technologist can learn more how to explain radiation in layman’s terms.

They will be less afraid if they know that we get our daily dose of radiation from various natural sources like the sun. Except the pain from sun burned skin, most people love the sun and no harm has been known to happen if sun exposure is during the safe hours of the day.

So, patients will understand that as long as radiation is within the safe level determined by scientists and health experts, there’s nothing to fear.

But if the explanation is explain in a technical way, it may not have the same effect if radiation is described through an analogy with something familiar to most patients. It will also help if the radiologic technician will show some of the protective shields being used for body parts that are sensitive to radiation.

Proper Oral Health Care - Rinse Away Bacteria with Mouthwash

One of the more popular ways to maintain good oral health care is by using mouthwash. Mouthwash is an oral antiseptic used to remove plague and kill bacteria inside your mouth. A mouthwash kills bacteria that cause many problems inside your mouth like bad breath and gingivitis.

The usage of mouthwash is very simple. A common amount of 20ml should be used at least two times a day or after brushing your teeth. A mouthwash is either swished around inside your mouth or gargled. Gargling mouthwash removes bacteria around a person’s throat. Using mouthwash will give you a brief stinging sensation inside your mouth.

But don’t always rely on your mouthwash for your oral health care needs, always remember that mouthwashes cannot remove all of the stains and plaque still stuck on to your teeth so you should still use it injunction with your toothbrush everyday for maximum oral protection.

One of the most common practices of oral health care is by flossing. Dental floss was invented around 1815 and was made out of silk instead of the nylon or Teflon plastic we use today. While brushing your teeth is effective in removing food particles around our mouth there can be some still stuck in between our teeth and this is where flossing comes in.

Flossing is relatively easy, you start out by taking 18” of dental floss and winding it around the middle fingers of each hand until there is enough floss space you can use, about 1 or 2 inches should be enough. Gently glide the floss between the gaps of your teeth and sliding it back and forth to remove unwanted food particles in between.

Use this after meals and before brushing your teeth to ensure that you will have a good practice of oral health care.

From our interview with Elizabeth at the Peninsula Chicago this week:
Tell me about the “Wet Hot American Summer” prequel. Has there been any news on that?I can tell you certain things. Because I have had conversations about it. It exists. It’s real, people. It’s not like Bigfoot. It’s for real.Bigfoot’s not real?No, Bigfoot is real. You just don’t get to see him. I’ve actually seen something that gives me evidence that this is real. I have no idea if it’ll ever come together, but it takes place on the New Year’s Eve just prior to the summer at camp.

Bigfoot’s not real?

No, Bigfoot is real. You just don’t get to see him. I’ve actually seen something that gives me evidence that this is real. I have no idea if it’ll ever come together, but it takes place on the New Year’s Eve just prior to the summer at camp.

Medical Jobs That Are in High Demand

As with all businesses, the medical profession has ethics governing how the practice should be done. One of the most interesting aspects of the medical professional ethics is confidentiality.

A lot of information is revealed to the doctor either through conversation or tests carried out. Medical professional ethics dictates that such information should not be shared with anyone else, sometimes even under oath.

Many families use the services of one physician and it is common for one family member to request the physician to disclose another family member’s medical information. The medical professional ethics of confidentiality does not allow this and the physician should not be coerced into it.

In some cases, the law may revoke the medical professional ethics of confidentially. A physician should inform the law enforcement authorities whenever a gunshot wound patient visits them or where he confirms that a patient has had an abortion, in states where abortion is illegal.

As a result of growth in the medical industry, there will continue to be a need for medical workers. Some medical jobs have a higher demand than others.

The nursing field is very wide and there is a need for nurses of so many different types. In nursing, there are jobs for varying levels of education. A high school graduate will get a job and a nurse with more than one degree will also land a job, only that their levels of compensation and their scope of work will differ. Out of all the medical jobs, nursing makes up the largest portion of the workforce.

Good physicians are on high demand. Whether in private practice or in employment by a hospital or institution, medical jobs for physicians will always be available. A physician may specialize in any of so many different medical fields, setting themselves apart from a large pool of general physicians.

Who Requires the Services of a Blood Care Centre?

A blood care centre is opened with the primary goal of providing enough blood that is safe to the recipient. Various reasons may cause a person to require blood.

An anemic person does not have enough red blood cells in the blood stream to carry oxygen within the body. Whatever the cause of anemia, whether blood loss, insufficient red blood cell production or red blood cell destruction, this person is in need of blood care.

During a surgery, a patient could lose a lot of blood needing urgent transfusion. A blood care centre will ensure that blood is available should the need arise.

In some regions, especially in the developing countries, transmitted diseases may cause one to be in need of blood. Such diseases include HIV infection, hepatitis or malaria. Blood care centers in such regions help save a lot of lives. The centers not only take care of the locals but also of expatriates, business visitors and holiday goers.
