It’s interesting to note that the average hospital will either own or rent the equipment that they need. At any one time, this amounts to 35,000 SKUs. Infusion pumps, which includes smart pumps, are just one of the medical devices that hospitals may own or rent to meet the needs of their patients.
Infusion Pump Usage in American Hospitals
When patients are admitted to hospitals, most of these individuals will require an infusion pump. The Materiel Services Department at the University of Michigan Health Systems reported that this applies to 86% of all patients admitted to hospital beds. In 2013, for example, an American Society of Health-System Pharmacists report indicated that 72.9% of

Burnout. It is a first-world word to mean exhaustion from a job and job responsibilities. But more than the first-world connotations, it can have very damaging effects on a human being and their family. It can hurt a person’s ability to earn money, to perform a job correctly. And it a serious epidemic that threatens major professions.
Burnout has many symptoms. A person who has burnout might suffer from depressed mood, an inability to function, anger, frustration, incredible physical exhaustion, trouble concentrating, and other ills. They may take it out on their coworkers with anger outbursts and displays of frustration. They may have lack of motivation, which affects productivity.
Certain professions are more likely to have burnout than others, though there is always a singular cause that affec
Being diagnosed with cancer can be a life altering moment in a person’s life. It can be difficult to know what steps to take and what treatments to pursue. While it is important to seek treatment, many patients are looking into non-invasive cancer treatment. Proton therapy for cancer is a non-invasive cancer treatment that is showing promising results in tumor reduction. It’s ideal for treating a number of different types of cancer, from treating prostate cancer to treatment for breast cancer.
Proton therapy is a non-invasive cancer treatment because of the way it targets cancer sells. It’s a type of radiation treatment that targets a very specific point of tissue and is able to avoid tissues that are unaffected by cance
Many people around the world feel that their jobs can sometimes feel stressful. However, a large majority of these same individuals likely know that these stressful situations are few and far between. With that in mind, not all professions are able to deal with low amounts of stress. Physicians often have to deal with a stressful job that often feels unrelenting. In fact, statistics show that 35.2% of physicians in the United States currently feel burned out. Adding to this, physicians also have a divorce rate that is 10-20% higher than the rest of the general population. It’s important to learn if you are feeling symptoms associated with job burnout. With that in mind, here are three signs that a physician is experiencing an overwhelming amount of job stress.

Cardiac arrest. It sounds like a terribly bad event, where someone’s heart stops or is having seizures, from which they could die if they are not taken to the hospital quickly. And many people do. They die from cardiac arrest because it is such a sudden, severe event. It threatens the entire body or system.
There are many statistics about people in general and the health conditions they have. They are worth noting in this article. They are:
- A 2014 study by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons found that 4.7 million Americans were living with artificial knees.
- The number of people to survive a cancer diagnosis is expected to rise to almost 19 million by 2024.
- One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
- More than 80% of prost
Medical research studies are an important part of the medical field. Medical research studies help medical professionals to determine what course of treatment works, what doesn’t, and what we should be looking into to make the next breakthrough. Part of medical research studies involves clinical trials with consenting participants who willingly take a drug and are monitored in order to gauge how well the drug works as well as any negative side affects that may occur. Consent to a trial for clinical drug development is highly important, and the continuing informed consent of all clinical trial participants is so protected and valued that it has its own section in the ninth revision of the American Psychological Association’s Ethical Code.
Clinical drug development. The word conjures to mind scientists in white lab coats and thick gloves going to work on pieces of equipment, possibly microscopes and vials full of gas, in order to create the next life-saving drug for the American population. These scientists are seen as men, though they can also be women. And they are here to save us,
America has a great deal of health problems. There is obesity and obesity-related illnesses which kill millions of people each year. There is cancer, which also kills millions, and heart disease, which kills millions. Generally in the top ten causes of deaths in the United States, a majority are preventable deaths.
We, as Americans, are struggling with our health.
Clinical drug development is important, in that it reduces symptoms or
Kybella. It’s a treatment that is used for the emulsification of fats in the liver. It is also used to treat fat under the chin and is approved by the Food and Drug administration for that purpose. Kybella calls to mind a strange word from a foreign place but is actually a name brand drug. It can help. With fat. With livers.
That framework is of treatments. Cosmetic treatments for women. The results are pretty astounding.
The cosmetic industry in America is often thought to be targeted only for women, but it is true that men and non-binary individuals also have a need for cosmetic adjustments. These adjustments include skin care, laser hair removal, eczema treatments, general dermatology, and more. These are considered “beauty treatments” but mean a lot more.

Depression is a serious problem facing millions of Americans. At least half of all people in the United States who suffer from depression will never go for treatment. In 2012, the number of people who had at least one depressive episode was over 16 million. That was about 7% of the population in the country. Every year, problems associated with depression cost the American economy $80 billion. What makes all of this so unfortunate is that depression is a very treatable problem. Talk therapy is one of the ways it is treated. This kind of therapy has other health benefits. Here are a few:
- It can help people with back pain. There have been several studies linking stress at work to an increase in back pain. The Lancet also published a study in 2010 that showed the link between talk therap
