Hantavirus is not new, it already attacked many Asian countries for the past years. The virus attacked various animals without showing symptoms and that is one big problem because once it attack humans the symptoms would slowly appearing which sooner would kill the host by its fatal blow.   Most cases of Hantavirus in Europe and America were carried by rats and it is not a question that once it spread in South East Asia it would be a serious problem,  different rats roamed around the streets and the crowded shanties in poverty-stricken countries such as the Philippines, Vietnam,Thailand,etc. Hantavirus would definitely spread very fast.

South East Asia has talented and skillful medical professionals so there is no point of panicking once this virus attack the residents, what it takes is simply a little understanding of the virus and a monitoring to its possible source of existence in that way doctors and nurses may know how to stop the progress and the spread of this silent killer.

Nurse Talk - Many Nurses love to eat chocolates most of my friends love chocolates but none of them talk about the positive side of it, they only argue about the taste of chocolates.  Anyways there are so many issues about chocolates too especially to those are suffering from diabetes.  Nurses are aware of that, but hey our discussion for today focus on the positive contribution by the chocolates. According to some doctors... it makes you Beautiful!

 Consuming chocolates is known to have a number of positive effects on the overall health of an individual. When it comes to skin care, chocolates can be used as packs, scrubs and wraps. Spas and salons are also making the use of chocolates in their skin treatment techniques, which yield positive results. Mentioned here are some of the benefits of dark chocolate for skin.
  • Flavonoids, which are a type of antioxidants contain a compound called epicatechins. This component has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which protect the skin from damage, caused due to pollution, exposure to harmful chemicals and smoking.
  • Collagen and elastin play a key role in preventing wrinkles and skin discoloration. However, free radicals present in the body tend to destroy these components of the skin, thereby triggering skin problems. Chocolate, especially the dark version, is a rich source of flavanols, a type of flavonoids, which help in fighting against free radicals. They also repair damaged cells, making the skin healthy and blemish-free.
  • Cocoa, the main ingredient of this sweet treat, is known to increase the moisture in the skin, making it hydrated, and thereby preventing its flaking. Since skin density is improved, with the regular consumption of dark chocolate, you can now bid goodbye to dry, scratchy and rough skin.
  • Dark chocolate acts as a shield to protect the skin from harmful UV rays. There is considerable improvement in blood circulation and age spots also tend to fade away. Due to this, the skin appears to have a refreshing and dewy appearance.

Nurse Talk -  How would Nurses handle the dying, some new nurses and nursing students suffered emotional breakdown when caring patients who are dying.  I have talked to several nursing students about their experiences and most of them experienced sadness and emotional discomfort when their patients died in their hands.  It is very obvious that caring for patient to survive and to gain a good health again is some sort a victory for nurses, and seeing someone dying or died is some sort of defeat.   So what are the attitudes of Nurses when they are into situation with a dying patient.

This is a reply from a Nurse from a student nurse asking about the current problems of our Nurses Today.

1. Lack of common ground for educational standards to enter nursing. Most professions have a common entry-level standard that defines them as a profession. For example, in order to be a dietitan, you must possess a minimum of a bachelor's degree, same for lawyer, teacher, etc. For nursing, there is no real common entry-level and this causes a great deal of confusion to young people looking at nursing as a professional career path. In addition, other health care disciplines have increased their educational standards to meet the increasing technology available in health care, yet nursing continues to have no common thread in relationship to education for entry-level as a registered professional nurse. This issue is frustrating in that it causes great stress for nurses as they are deeply divided on entry-level themselves. Do a search on this board and you will find many hotly debated discussions on the topic. 

2. Lack of respect as a professional. Many nurses will claim that they receive little respect from other health care providers, including physicians, administrators and in some cases even advanced practice nurses . As a result of this direct lack of respect, nurses view their voice as limited in health care. Nurses today are placed in some of the most dangerous positions in relationship to providing care to patients. Nurses in some hospitals have far too many patients to safely care for. Nurses have limited voices with administrators and many nurses feel that the only way to have a voice is to join a union, which is not necessarily the answer. 

3. As health care advances and technology improves, the overall cost of health care is escalating. Nurses believe that their wages do not fairly compensate for the the service they perform. It really is a sad note on society when a famous football player earns millions of dollars, but the nurse caring for your mother and holding the security of her life is compensated less than $45,000 per year in most cases :angryfire . Decreases in benefits (decreased contributions to 401(k), elimination of retirement pensions, etc.), increasing costs of health care insurance and no loyality by employers to promote long term employment relationships all add to the lack of security that nurses have with their jobs. 

4. America is increasingly becoming more litigious and nurses are being named in lawsuits. This alarming trend will only increase in the future without proper government intervention. As lawsuits increase in numbers and awards to plaintiffs are outrageous, overall health care costs are going to increase. Many people looking at nursing as a viable career choice are thinking twice about the option without tort reform and reform of the current system.

5. All of the above contribute to the lack of nurses willing to work at the patient's bedside. Many studies have shown that there is really no true nursing shortage, rather, there is a direct lack of willingness for registered nurses to work in these increasingly compromising situations. This adds to the shortage. Couple the shortage with an aging population and you have a true disaster in nursing on the horizon. 2008 will be the first year that the baby boomers will begin reaching retirement. Government reports predict that the overall cost on the social security system will be overwhelming, not to mention Medicare. Nurses will be on the front line dealing with aging baby boomers .... How will the profession meet the challenges that it will face? Not sure I can answer this.

6. But still, I think there is hope and I pray that as we move into the future, someone or something will engage nurses to unite and speak with one common voice for reform to health care and better standards for patient care as well as better working conditions for nurses. California began this process with mandated nurse to patient ratios. If California can initiate such reform, why can't this reform spread across the country? It can and when nurses begin to realize that they have one of the most powerful voices in the country, only then will WE as a professional body be able to demand and see change for our patients and for our working conditions. As a student in nursing, you are on the front line also and you can be part of that powerful voice. The future is not all doom and gloom for us, it can indeed be very bright and enriched and wonderful if we all come together and work to change our profession from a weak sub-servant occupation, to a profession that is strong, vocal with conviction and able to provoke change for the future.

Dr Maulik -Healthcare Informatics Consultant: "Medical informatics functional consultant has basic knowledge of computer languages such as C#, Core Java, HTML, XML etc. In addition, they are expected to be well-versed with medical standards such as HL7 and DICOM. Needless to say that health domain experts and hardcore software programmers together can come up with much better final product for medical field."

What is health informatics?: "This is a very exciting field with many new jobs being developed. The Obama administration is putting billions of dollars into health information technology and much of the work needs to be directed by people with health informatics expertize. It is currently estimated that there is a need for about 50,000 such cross-trained experts in America over the next five years. So this is a great area for any clinicians or computer scientists to enter - it is well paid, and jobs are plentiful."

Pondering On A Degree In Nursing Informatics: "Whereas nursing informatics is a relatively new field, people who get a nursing informatics degree can easily find employment in computer companies engaged in making software for assisting medical practitioners in diagnostic labs and medical facilities. This degree opens horizons in the area of records management in terms of getting fast documentation and evaluation of records in order to get quick diagnosis and make the hospitals function more efficiently between its staff, doctors, and patients."

The High Demand For The Health Informatics Degree: "The keeping of records is vital in the preservation of life of the patients as their health is properly tracked by their medical records. Doctors would lose track of their medical prescriptions in the absence of documented information in medical records. This is the reason why a health informatics degree is very important for professionals in the health care industry which is considered to be the fastest growing industry in the United States."

Nurses in World War 2 - Heroism under fire: "There were so many questions pertaining to the performances of the nurses in the front, others would say that they weren't able to perform well when bombs started to explodes on the ground. But that did not happen to majority of the Nurses serving in the fronts. In North Africa campaign alone Allied Nurses were stationed in a Hospital at the middle of an airfield and ammunition dump. When bombs started exploding near on their distance none of the nurses run away from their patients, instead they had saved more lives by helping more wounded from the bombing raids."
