Hospital errors are affecting the healthcare system, submitted by ICIM member John Parks Trowbridge, M.D.    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Infections, surgical mistakes and other medical harm contributes to the deaths of 180,000 hospital patients a year, according to projections based on a 2010 report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Another 1.4 million are seriously hurt by their hospital care. And those figures apply only to Medicare patients. What happens to other people is less clear because most hospital errors go unreported, and hospitals report on only a fraction of things that can go wrong. More

New map available to examine antibiotic use and bacterial resistance on a state-by-state and microbe-by-microbe basis
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Patterns of antibiotic overuse vary in the U.S. vary by region, with residents of some Southeastern states taking about twice as many antibiotics per capita as residents in some Western states. Public health officials worry about antibiotic overuse and misuse because they can promote the development of drug-resistant strains of bacteria that are invulnerable to medical treatment. More

Mighty mitochondria ... and cardiolipin, too
Slidell Nutritional Medicine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Like your car, the cell has parts. Considering that you have more than 50 trillion cells, the parts have to be tiny, really tiny. A component of the cell that shares its architecture is the mitochondrion, sometimes referred to as the power plant of the cell because it makes most of the cell's supply of adenosine triphosphate, used as a source of chemical energy.

Healing with Language — KISS
SCS Matters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Most readers of this column will recognize KISS as standing for "keep it simple, stupid." It is a not-so-polite way to remind people that the simple solutions are often more reliable and effective than the complex. While some things, such as computers, may be inherently complex, a good rule is things should be no more complex than necessary. This allows people to be able to understand and use what you are presenting.

The idea of the wisdom of simplicity is definitely true of language. In general, people understand short words and sentences — fewer than 17 words — better than they do "big" words and long sentences. English has three types of sentence construction:
  • Simple: A "simple" sentence has one subject and one verb. It may or may not have an object. Take this pill. The subject is an "understood you," the person being addressed. The verb is "take," and the object is "pill." You can add a bit more information and still have a simple sentence: Take one of these pills with breakfast and one with dinner. The adverbial phrases describe how many pills and when they should be taken, but the sentence is still "simple" and easy to understand.
  • Compound: A "compound" sentence has at least two independent clauses, or sentences, which are joined by a conjunction. Take one of these pills with breakfast and one with dinner, but be sure to take them with water rather than coffee or alcohol. Note that a compound sentence increases what's called the "cognitive load" of the sentence. The listener needs to track and organize more information to understand and follow the directions.
  • Complex: A "complex" sentence contains an independent clause (a sentence), and one dependent clause (not a complete sentence). Take one of these pills with breakfast and one with dinner, while remembering to avoid taking them with either coffee or alcohol. Complex sentences are also higher in "cognitive load" than simple sentences.
Mark Nepo, author of New York Times No. 1 bestseller "The Book of Awakening," says when you have something important to say, repeat it three times: once for each ear and once for the heart. When you are asking someone to follow a complicated routine, use written instructions and use simple sentences. Tell them three times how important it is for them to follow them.

Medical billing codes — Will nurses and alternative medicine ever get a foot in the door?
Alliance for Natural Health    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The world of medicine is run by billing codes — every hospital, doctor and practitioner who accepts insurance or Medicare uses billing codes both for a record and for any reimbursement. Billing codes can also be used by researchers to track the effectiveness of various treatments. Would you be surprised to learn that the standard billing codes, set up by the American Medical Association, don't include complementary or alternative medical therapies? More
