HEALTH CARE NEWS YOU CAN USE (9/28/18)

By: Randy S. Gerber, Esq., Founder of Pacient.care

CONCERNING YOUR BODY PARTS:

  • Your Appendix:       A new study finds that antibiotics may be just as effective as surgery for certain types of patients.
  • Your Heart:  Patients with severe heart failure should be happy to hear that a new clip (called a mitra clip) has been used on patients with severe heart failure. Death rates have been reduced, quality of life has been increased.
  • Shingles:  the popular vaccine Shingrix remains hard to find.  We recently wrote an article about the benefits of this new drug.  To help you locate where this vaccine is available, check out shingrix.com.
  • Your Ankles, Wrists, Elbows and Scooters.  Emergency room visits are up as result of riders trying to catch themselves as gravity has its way with the motorized scooter craze.

If you need further information, feel free to email me with any questions or comments.  Randy.  rgerber@pacient.care
