Open MRI Machines Add Comfort To A Traditional Procedure

There are many people who have a fear of going through an MRI, and thought of laying inside the enclosed space is enough to cause a wave of panic. It may even cause patients to put off scheduling a procedure that is important to their health. To help calm those fears, many hospitals are turning to open MRI machines for their patients.

Open Space: The worst part of an MRI for a patient is that feeling of being closed in. The open MRI machine gives patients who experience mild to severe claustrophobia a peace of mind. Patients will not feel as if they are trapped between the walls of a traditional MRI machine. Doctors may also recommend an open MRI for patients who need additional supervision during the procedure.

Laying Comfortably: Patients have the opportunity to lay comfortably with an open MRI. The table features soft cushions to add a little comfort to the experience. It is easier accommodate different body sizes with the open space around the patient. Patients are physically and mentally comfortable throughout the process.

Patients Are Monitored: Patients do not have to go through the procedure alone just because it is an open MRI. The staff still monitors the patient to ensure everything is going smoothly. A technician stays connected with patients using a speaker system, which is a great reminder that they are not alone. The staff will use the speaker system to send updates and encouragement to their patient.

Receive Accurate Results: The doctor does not have to sacrifice accurate results for comfort with an open MRI. The open space makes it easy to scan patients of various body types. The machine takes high quality images of the body so doctors can make an accurate diagnosis. Patients can usually find out the results within a few hours or days of the procedure.

Patients do not have to put off scheduling an MRI with their doctor. The open machine allows them to go through the procedure without feeling confined to a small space. This gives them a peace of mind before and during the procedure. Doctors do not have to worry about sacrificing accurate results with an open MRI. The machine produces high quality images that allow them make an accurate diagnosis. Open MRI machines create a positive experience for both the patients and their doctors.

Dental Implants For Chron Disease Patients

Chron’s disease is a persistent inflammatory bowel disease that often affects the digestive tract’s lining. This disease can cause severe dehydration due to significant amounts of excrement exiting the body. It can also affect dental health because dehydration causes the mouth to dry up increasing the rate of bacterial infections in the mouth.

Severe dehydration may also affect jaw bones and teeth due to lack of adequate amounts of saliva in the mouth. This presents a challenge to patients who want to use dental implants because weak jaw bone composition and teeth structure rules out the use of dental implants as a dental treatment option. Fortunately, certain medications can help heal chron’s disease and allow patient to use dental implants to treat their dental problems. Otherwise, chron’s disease can worsen dental conditions such as cavities, making it difficult for patients to comfortably bite and chew food.

Supplemental Procedures
Patients with chron’s disease must treat the condition first before seeking treatment for their dental problems. Early treatment can prevent the disease from worsening oral health problems. Some of the treatment options for chron’s disease include supplemental dental procedures such as soft tissue augmentation and bone graft to remodel damaged dental structure. However, these only work for people who have the disease under control. A patient suffering from physical erosion of the jaw bone may require a bone graft, which involves performing bone tissue transplant. This process involves the removal of all fractured and damaged teeth or bone tissues and replacing them with new and healthy tissue. The recovery period for this dental procedure may range from three to four months depending on the severity of the condition and the amount of bone tissue that was replaced.

Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants are effective dental treatment options. Unlike tooth replacement, dental implants are able to restore the oral and dental health of the patient with time. By protecting the remaining teeth and gum tissue from harmful bacteria, they can prevent gum disease and increase the density of the teeth and jaw with every bite. Dental implants allow patients to achieve a healthy bite and mastication potential that allow the teeth and the jaw bones to heal themselves. The effects of dental implants can last a lifetime with proper dental care. Many people use implant aesthetics to improve the look of their dental implants.

What To Do With Your Pet When You Go On Vacation

Pets bring so much to our lives. They truly become part of the family, so it’s a bit traumatic when we have to travel and leave them behind. While many pets travel well, there may be times in your life when you just can’t bring them along. Consider investigating care options before you need them. It’s so much nicer to already have a plan, than to feel like you didn’t have enough time to make the right choice for your beloved pet. Here are some things to consider when kenneling a dog, but many apply to other pets as well:

Space


Be sure to ask whether the area where your dog is kenneled is temperature controlled. You’ll want to know how much interaction they will have with other dogs and ask what precautions are taken if a dog becomes ill. Ask about the simple things like bedding. Many offer raised cots for their guests. If your dog has a preferred type of bedding, ask if you are allowed to bring anything from home. Be sure to check on the number of potty breaks offered and where those will occur. Ask for a tour of the facility so that you can get a feel for what your dog’s time away from home will be like. 

Play Time


Depending on how socialized your dog is, it can be very important to understand the type of play time the dogs are offered. Find out whether there is one-on-one playtime with a facility employee, or whether playtimes are always ‘group’ play. In group play situations, ask how they handle dogs that become aggressive. 

Meals

Ask about the type of food provided, and how frequently your pet will be fed. In many instances, you have input as to the number of meals your dog receives and the timing of those meals. 

Special Needs Pets

If you have an older dog, or one with other special needs, look for a facility that allows you to provide your own food. You may also want to ask about extra potty breaks and the administration of medicine. Look for a facility that allows you to request one-on-one only playtimes, if necessary. You’ll need to be your pet’s advocate to make sure that the care is delivered in a way that keeps your pup free from additional stress. 

There are a wide variety of kenneling options out there. You’ll find you can get luxury dog boarding, or just the basics. Paw Print Inn is a good example of a facility that offers pet owners a broad spectrum of choices, designed to put both owner and pet at ease. If you’ve done your research in advance, you’ll feel so much more comfortable knowing that you’re leaving your beloved pet in capable hands.

I Hate Housework

I'm currently facing a HAD crisis. HAD stands for Housework Avoidance Disorder, a term I coined up at a whim.

You see, I've tried all sorts of ways to complete my housework but they never ever seem to be completed. That's the problem.

First, I tried to do it all on one day. I spring cleaned the entire house for 4 hours non-stop cleaning bathrooms, floors, counter tops, fans, aircons, blah blah blah. Then I sit back and relax the rest of the week. That proved to be really tiring and kills my enjoyment on one day of each week.

Next, I tried spot cleaning. 10 minutes for each spot. That's all it takes, I told myself. I ended up cleaning all day long on various 10 minute sessions.

Then, I tried to do it one room at a time. So Monday it was bedroom 1, Tuesday the playroom, Wednesday the living room etc. However, the floors in the cleaned room gets dirty easily when you step from the uncleaned one to the cleaned one. Big sigh.

So, I tried the specialization trick. Mondays was reserved for floors, Tuesdays all the bathrooms, Wednesday was for wiping. Boring!

I also tried to clean as you go, cleaning as I move from one part of the house to another and cleaning the bathroom during a shower. That too ended up in cleaning all day long.

I haven't tried house chores apps but no I don't think so. How annoying it would be to get a reminder notification to do more housework. No, thank you.

Epic fail on all the various methods.  Housework is never ending and a work in progress all of the time. What should I do? Oh what should I do? Any suggestions would be most  helpful!
