Inconceivable?

More than 1,000 people visited emergency rooms in 2008 because they were distracted and accidently tripped, bumped or ran into something while talking or texting on their cellphone. That was twice the number from 2007, which had nearly doubled from 2006, according to a study conducted by Ohio State University (NYT).


There is a growing problem; DISTRACTION — A potentially injurious combination of a PERSON, with a MOBILE PHONE and an OBSTACLE like other people, the pole of a street sign, a toy left on the steps, a parked or even a moving vehicle.


“It’s the tip of the iceberg,” said Jack L. Nasar, a professor at Ohio State, noting that the number of mishaps will most likely increase as texting is rising sharply and devices like the iPhone have thousands of new, engaging applications.


However, certain iPhone and Android Apps reduce the likelihood that you will become an accident statistic. Check out GPS TRACKING. It will provide the precise location of one or all of those in your contact list and send a TXT MSG along with the location (LOCi) request – not only combining two tasks into one, but just in case you walk into an object larger than yourself, you’ll be able to alert friends or family of your location and the inconceivable happenstance.


By the way, if cell phone multi-tasking has become a habit, then you might also want to take a look at www.coeamberalertag.com – A secure digital personal ID tag that will provide first responders to emergencies with the vital information needed to make an informed treatment assessment as well as who to call.


We think it’s a good idea to anticipate the unexpected

Haiti: an inconceivable catastrophe has exposed the narrow crack in the earth’s social crust between despair and hope.

It is unimaginable that all the people, places and things in your life could disappear in an instant. But in Haiti, parents have lost their children. Children have lost their families. Survivors walk about aimlessly carrying remnants of their former lives. Tens of thousands are sleeping in the streets. Rescue teams look for the lost and those that lost their lives as a result of the cataclysmic quake that gave no warning.

It could happen here. It could happen to you. It has happened before. It will happen again. Be prepared. Protect your family from the inconceivable.

Americans have donated more than $8 million for Haiti relief via TXT message. The online donation system allows people to donate $10 at a time by texting HAITI to 90999.
If you can, give.

IT’S INCONCEIVABLE, BUT ACCIDENTS DO HAPPEN

AND THEY CAN HAPPEN TO THOSE YOU LOVE…

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) defines a “pre-existing” condition as “any medical condition that a person has before being enrolled in an insurance plan.” There are an infinite number of pre-existing conditions which may be aggravated as a result of an accident injury, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, pregnancy, diabetes, obesity and or depression.

Here’s what the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Emergency Physicians say you need to know about emergency treatment for accident victims with preexisting conditions:

The physical responses seen in younger patients to “shock” incurred from an accident may not be seen in the older patients due to medications and preexisting conditions.

Pain, which can be manifested as delirium in older adults, should be optimally managed by balancing the need for relief and functional improvement with the potential for adverse events.

A complete medication history, including use of prescription and non-prescription medications (herbal supplements, etc.), should be obtained and assessed for possible adverse effects and interactions. Commonly prescribed medications in older adults (e.g., beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers) can mask or blunt the normal physiologic response to injury and stress or, in some cases (e.g., warfarin), may exacerbate an individual’s injuries.

Delirium is not uncommon, and it may be due to medications (including prescription and non-prescription), infections (e.g., pneumonia, urosepsis), or many other medical conditions, including: acute blood loss, electrolyte imbalance, end organ failure, hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, hypoxia, arrhythmias, neurological conditions, dehydration, severe pain, immobility, sleep deprivation, fecal impaction, or urinary retention. During initial assessment evaluation, patients with delirium should be assumed to have a reversible etiology until it is proven otherwise. Unrecognized dementia is a risk factor for post-operative delirium.

Decreased hearing and visual impairment are common in older adults. These conditions need to be evaluated as contributing factors in patients with altered consciousness or cognitive change.

Family members should be queried regarding existing advanced directives, and health professionals should assist family members in understanding how these directives relate to the specifics of medical care.

It is smarter to have a Code Amber Alertag and not need it, then to need it and have one.

Posted to GPS TECHREVIEW

Scanned directly from the printed page to a smartphone, geo-aware mobile coupon scanners offer marketers branding, retailers traffic, and consumers on the go with savings.

ScanLife, an App widely available online as a free download, turns a mobile phone into a bar-code reader to capture the quick-response (QR) codes printed in advertisements. Versions exist for the iPhone and BlackBerry as well as Android-based handsets in the United States. ScanLife can read many standard bar codes on a variety of phones, so it can also perform price comparisons.

The way it works is simple – Readers scan the code into an Internet-enabled phone, and the QR bar code will take them to a mobile menu providing information about the item, including where to buy it and a coupon to incentivize a sale.

A recent story in the NYT suggests that it may take time for scanning to take hold, but no one foresaw the impact of the App Store either.

Consumers will learn – sooner than later – that their GPS enabling Apps like GPS Tracking – will allow them to not only locate a retailer, but share the location and valuable information like coupons with their network.

It's far smarter to have a Code Amber Alertag and not need it than to need it and not have it...

The College Of Integrative Medical Sciences:
People's lives often depend on the quick reaction and competent care of
emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics. Incidents as varied
as automobile accidents, heart attacks, slips and falls, childbirth, blunt and
penetrating wounds all require immediate medical attention. EMTs and
paramedics provide this vital service as they care for and transport the
sick or injured to a medical facility.

EMTs and paramedics are typically dispatched to emergency scenes,
where they often work with police. fire fighters and other first responders.
Once they arrive, EMTs and paramedics assess the nature of the patient's
condition while trying to determine whether the patient has any
pre-existing medical conditions.

"It’s safer to have one and not need it, than to need it and not have it…"
