Laparoscopic Gastric Banding: A Powerful Weapon in the Fight Against Adolescent Obesity

Laparoscopic Gastric Banding: A Powerful Weapon in the Fight Against Adolescent Obesity

The results of a recent LapBand® study shed light on a dark problem for America's youth.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 25, 2007

A recent article in the Elsevier Journal of Science and Health discussed the results of a study designed to test the impact of laparoscopic gastric banding procedures on morbidly obese adolescents.

The study followed the progress of 17 patients, with a median age of 17, who had undergone laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding by the same surgeon.

After 24 months patients lost a median of 59.3 percent of their excess weight and experienced a drop in BMI (Body Mass Index) from 44.7 kg/m2 to 30.2 kg/m2. Only two patients required follow up procedures to fix complications -- a band slip and a leaking port. Overall, the results determined that LapBand® (http://www. lapsf. com/lapband-weight-loss-surgery. php) is a safe and effective method for medium term weight loss in morbidly obese adolescents.

When asked to comment on the study, Dr. Gregg H. Jossart of Laparoscopic Associates of San Francisco, stated, "In a country where 34 percent of the adult population is considered to be overweight, it is of critical importance that we take action against the rising obesity epidemic amongst adolescents."

He continued to explain his stance noting, "This study also represents a huge shift in the way we, as a country, can fight morbid obesity among young people. By giving parents and teenagers real facts about the effectiveness of weight-loss procedures like laparoscopic gastric banding, vertical sleeve gastrectomy (http://www. lapsf. com/vertical-gastrectomy-weight-loss-surgery. php) and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (http://www. lapsf. com/roux-en-y-gastric-bypass-weight-loss-surgery. php), they will begin to realize that surgical intervention can succeed where diet and exercise fail."

While the initial phase of the study has been completed, scientists will continue to monitor the progress of the 17 patients in hopes of discovering laparoscopic gastric banding's long-term ability to prevent obesity-related diseases like diabetes and congestive heart failure.

3 Indonesians From Same Family Died of Bird Flu, Unconfirmed Local Tests Show

3 Indonesians From Same Family Died of Bird Flu, Unconfirmed Local Tests Show

The H5N1 bird flu virus has spread to yet another African country in a new region, the Horn of Africa. A 2 year old girl and some chickens are confirmed as infected.

Ballwin, MO (PRWEB) May 15, 2006

Five members of the same family in North Sumatra, Indonesia, have tested positive for bird flu according to the Indonesian health ministry. Three of them died. Two are still alive.

The results won't be official until the United Nations World Health Organization WHO laboratories confirm the results.

Four of the five family members are adults -- 19, 25, 29 and 35 years old. All three of the deceased are adults. The other victims is described only as a toddler.

"It's striking that so much bird flu in Indonesia strikes families," says Richard Stooker, author of How to Protect Yourself and Your Family From Bird Flu. "Either they're all eating the same infected and undercooked chicken, or they catching it from each other. The toddler may have picked up bird flu from village chickens, but it's highly unlikely all four adults had that much close contact with chickens."

Richard Stooker researched the bird flu virus A/H5N1 and created a start to finish proprietary 7 Perimeter Immune Defense System that explains how to defeat bird flu at every stage. He also provides a list of the Super Immunity 7 herbs and supplements.

More information on how you can learn How to Protect Yourself and Your Family is available at the author's website and blog.

Stop Stressing About Your Heart Health – Step Up Your Fitness Program Before American Heart Month is Over

Stop Stressing About Your Heart Health – Step Up Your Fitness Program Before American Heart Month is Over

Because heart health occurs over a long period of time and people canÂ’t easily see the internal changes taking place, sticking to a fitness program can be challenging. A Minnesota based fitness author offers some practical tips to help get started. And it all begins with a calendar.

St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) February 17, 2005

FebruaryÂ’s American Heart Month raises awareness of heart disease and inspires and helps many people to take better care of their fitness and health. But for people inclined to stick their heads in the sand, or who feel overwhelmed or stressed out by the challenge of overhauling their unhealthy lifestyles, a Minnesota based fitness author offers some practical tips to help get started. And it all begins with a calendar.

“First, put your health habits into real-time mode by tracking them on a calendar. That will help you realize that you are already on a fitness program by virtue of what you do – or don’t do – every day of your life,” says Stillwater MN based Jennifer Luhrs, creator and publisher of the Streaming Colors™ Fitness Journal, a calendar you color in with your positive fitness actions each day. “No one expects perfection, but today is a good day to start making small improvements in your fitness habits, especially since so many people are reaching out to help you during American Heart Month.”

“Second, look at your calendar and start relating your health habits to the traditional calendar divisions you use all the time – days, weeks, months and years. Look for opportunities to accelerate steady, gradual change. If, like most people, you make resolutions in January and forget about them by February, make a note on your calendar right now to set realistic, action-oriented goals at the beginning of every month. When it comes to your health, you can’t afford to put off improvement for a whole year at a time,” cautions Luhrs, 55, who has a family history of heart disease.

Luhrs advises you to keep breaking your fitness efforts down into smaller and more manageable steps. Set a goal for how many hours you’ll exercise each week, or how often each week you’ll add a healthy food item like fish or oatmeal to your daily diet, or avoid an unhealthy food like greasy french fries. Keep track of it all every day on your calendar. “Studies show that people who keep a journal are more successful in making healthy behavior change,” states daughter Alexis Luhrs, who shares her mother’s goal of making fitness more fun for people of all ages and fitness levels.

Because heart health occurs over a long period of time and people canÂ’t easily see the internal changes taking place, sticking to a fitness program can be challenging. ThatÂ’s why the Luhrs women have created a calendar that offers people a fun, visual way to see the progress they make in taking positive fitness actions over time. On the Streaming Colors Fitness Journal, boldly-outlined daily modules are colored in according to a customized monthly color key. Yellow might indicate exercise, orange could show a workout with weights, and green might celebrate a donut-free day. Seeing too much empty white space helps motivate you to do more.

“With the signs of heart disease showing up in children at younger and younger ages, it’s clear that Americans of all ages need to take steps every day to create a heart healthy lifestyle,” says Alexis Luhrs, 26. “It’s a lifelong gift we can give to ourselves and to the people we love. If you still can’t get started, identify the single most important thing that is standing in your way and resolve to take care of it before American Heart Month is over. Whether it’s calling your doctor for a pre-exercise check-up, shopping for some running shoes, or joining a walking club or weight loss support group, write it down on your calendar and then do it before February is over. There’s magic in just getting started.”

The Streaming Colors Fitness Journal ($15.95) is available online at www. streamingcolors. com and at amazon. com. Ask for it through your employer, health care provider, fitness trainer and other retailers.

Brain Tumor Patients and Their Families Get Dedicated and Educated Attention When They Call for Physical, Emotional and Social Support

Brain Tumor Patients and Their Families Get Dedicated and Educated Attention When They Call for Physical, Emotional and Social Support

Supportive communications efforts, such as toll-free lines, Internet and email are highlighted during the first National Tim & Tom Gullikson Foundation Week, May 23-29, 2005.

CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) May 23, 2005

In a time when callers are sent into voice mail dungeons when they try to find an answer to a question, brain tumor patients and their families say theyÂ’re relieved and pleasantly surprised when they get a live person on the other end of the phone when they call for support.

More than 1,200 people from throughout the country who contact Tim & Tom Gullikson Foundation-funded telephone lines, email and Internet accessible areas ask social workers questions about everything from financial challenges that accompany an illness like brain tumors to information about care and treatment of the disease.

“We always have a sense that people are very overwhelmed when they contact us,” Dianne Barounis, a social worker who answers questions via Gullikson Foundation-funded lines at the American Brain Tumor Association, said. “They receive lots of information from their health care providers and don’t know how to interpret it, or they don’t receive any information and want it. Our job is to give them direction.”

Specialist-answered toll-free lines, Internet and email support are just some of the Tim & Tom Gullikson-funded programs that are receiving recognition May 23-29, 2005 which marks the first National Tim & Tom Gullikson Foundation Week. Programs and fund raisers continue throughout the FoundationÂ’s 10th Anniversary year that assist brain tumor patients with the physical, emotional and social challenges that result from brain tumor diagnoses.

Jillann Demes, a social worker from Chicago, understands the challenge of finding information all too well as her mother was diagnosed with brain tumors and ultimately lost her battle with the disease.

“As someone who has gone through this illness personally, as I did with my mother, I still [some days] ask myself how I got through it,” Demes said. “When you’re personally involved you feel like although you have access to quality health care and have reasonable intelligence, you still don’t know where to turn.”

It was DemesÂ’ experiences that led to her desire to help make life less complicated for brain tumor patients and their families.

It was also the experience of tennis professional and coach Tim Gullikson that led to the formation of the Tim & Tom Gullikson Foundation in 1995.

The Tim & Tom Gullikson Foundation was founded by tennis professionals Tim and his twin brother, Tom Gullikson, and their families after Tim was diagnosed with brain tumors in 1995. At the time of diagnosis, Tim Gullikson was coach to No. 1 ranked Pete Sampras. His goal in teaming with his family to create the Foundation was to help brain tumor patients and their families manage the challenges presented by the disease.

The Foundation accepts honorary and memorial donations. It may be contacted at 1-888-GULLIKSON or Tim & Tom Gullikson Foundation, 8000 Sears Tower, Chicago, IL 60606.

Next Safety, Inc. Offers the Only Solution For UK Smoking Ban: Company Offers Clubs, Pubs, Casinos, and Business People Nicotine Without The Smoke

Next Safety, Inc. Offers the Only Solution For UK Smoking Ban: Company Offers Clubs, Pubs, Casinos, and Business People Nicotine Without The Smoke

Next Safety, Inc.'s responds to the no-smoking ban in the United Kingdom with its revolutionary pulmonary drug delivery device. The handheld device delivers nicotine more effectively than a cigarette, without the smoke. It has enormous potential in the United Kingdom, and other areas of the world, where no-smoking bans have gone into effect.

WEST JEFFERSON, N. C. (PRWEB) July 4, 2007

 Roughly the size of a pack of cigarettes, the device will be used in much the same way as current inhalers. The nicotine is supplied in replaceable cartridges; the cartridges are monitored by electronically stored information to ensure safe dosing. Battery powered circuitry monitors the system to create and deliver nicotine to the lungs at the optimal point during inhalation. The nicotine is delivered through a mouthpiece connected to the system by a flexible hose.

THE RESULT: Using this breakthrough technology, Next Safety has delivered nicotine with such high efficiency and efficacy that an inhaled dose equal to less than 30 percent of that inhaled from the average cigarette yields psychoactive results that last 12 to 18 hours in the average person. Receptors in the brain receive nicotine rapidly without the inhalation of the more than 300 combustion byproducts contained in cigarette smoke. The device delivers extremely high arterial levels of nicotine - with effects felt less than ten seconds after inhalation - and provides higher psychoactive effects than cigarettes or any other tobacco product on the market.

Persons using the hand held device still get the nicotine "hit" that they crave, but won't be breaking any new "no-smoking" laws. The company looks forward to working with the National Health Service organisations to support their important leadership in removing the carcinogens from public spaces.

"Next Safety, Inc. offers the only solution to the no-smoking ban," said C. Eric Hunter, CEO and founder of Next Safety, Inc. "This type of technology has never been seen before. It is a tremendous breakthrough that will save millions of lives as well as allow public and private establishments to operate without losing the revenue of a smoking public."

Initially, the unit will be provided to unregulated global markets with availability in other areas following regulatory compliance. Next Safety, Inc. anticipates production volumes will reach more than one million units monthly in the first quarter of 2008. Primary manufacturing capacity will be provided through contract-manufacturing firms and a significant expansion of Next Safety's West Jefferson, North Carolina, USA facility.

In addition to nicotine, Next Safety will soon launch drug delivery tests utilizing its pulmonary drug delivery method and devices that will include antibiotics (tobramycin), anti-emetics (promethazine), bronchodilators (albuterol), and narcotics (morphine).

About Next Safety, Inc.

Next Safety is located in North Carolina, an area already known for leadership in technology and medicine. The company has leveraged this expertise to develop the worlds most advanced respirator technology and to advance the field of pulmonary medicine. Next Safety's bPure8000(TM) line of respirators provide higher protection against airborne viruses and fine particulate air pollution than any other respirator available globally. Next Safety now brings the same innovative approach to the science of pulmonary drug delivery and nicotine replacement.

Adaptive Network Security Solutions from Vernier Networks Selected to Meet HIPAA Requirements for Healthcare Organizations

Adaptive Network Security Solutions from Vernier Networks Selected to Meet HIPAA Requirements for Healthcare Organizations

Vernier NetworksÂ’ Adaptive Network Security Solution Protects Patient Records While Offering Latest Network Security Solutions and Network Services at Howard County General Hospital and St. VincentÂ’s Hospital

Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) October 7, 2004

http://www. verniernetworks. com (http://www. verniernetworks. com) - Vernier Networks®, an adaptive network security solution provider for complete network security, recently announced that several health care organizations have selected the Vernier Adaptive Security Platform (ASP) to secure their networks and help them meet the technical requirements of the 1996 Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) to protect online patient records. Howard County Hospital in Columbia, Md. and St. Vincent's Hospital in Birmingham, Ala. are among the hospitals that have deployed the Vernier adaptive network security solution. The deadline to meet HIPAA requirements is April 21, 2005.

The Vernier ASP is the industry's first adaptive network security solution that enables health care organizations to meet stringent HIPAA requirements while assuring continuous, secure network availability on their wired and wireless networks. These requirements which are directly addressed by the Vernier adaptive network security solution include network access control, authorization control, data authentication, user authentication, data encryption and audit controls. Additionally, Vernier's multi-layered adaptive network security solution proactively protects networks from increasingly complex attacks, while continually adapting network security policy to provide complete worm and virus protection, and to protect against future threats.

Howard County General Hospital, part of the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System, selected the Vernier adaptive network security to offer HIPAA-compliant, secure network access control for more than 750 physicians, while protecting the hospital's network from viruses and worms. Since most of the physicians at Howard County General Hospital are visiting physicians with their own laptops or PDAs, the hospital's IT staff faced a huge amount of work to provide them with access to patient records via the hospital's network.

“We had to find a way to enable visiting physicians and other mobile workers to access patient records or use our Internet access while meeting HIPAA requirements,” said Rick Edwards, director of information systems at Howard County General Hospital. “Using the Vernier ASP, we can now protect the network in a number of ways. We can prevent physicians from unauthorized access to resources on the hospital's internal network, as well as prevent them from accessing network devices such as routers. We can ensure that if a physician's laptop becomes infected with a virus or a worm, it cannot launch a denial of service attack against the hospital's network infrastructure. Should a physician's computing device become infected, the Vernier ASP will automatically detect the infection and quarantine the device until it has been cleaned.”

Networking Concepts Inc., a networking integration firm based in Columbia, Md. installed and configured the Vernier system at Howard County General Hospital.

St. Vincent's Hospital, one of the “100 Most Wired Health Care Facilities” according to Hospitals and Health Networks magazine, also implemented the Vernier adaptive network security solution to provide secure, HIPAA-compliant access to its staff which included physicians, nurses and other healthcare workers.

“At St. Vincent's Hospital, we have a legal obligation to ensure that our patients' records are protected from security threats all the time. Our security system has to be foolproof,” said Eddie Kilgore, information security officer of St. Vincent's Hospital based in Birmingham, Ala. “We found that the Vernier ASP enabled us to track any user's device on the network by their identity and define what network resources they can access and when. The result is total control over all the users on the network while still offering the most advanced services to our patients and staff.

LASIK Expert Dr. James Salz Co-Authors Article on Pupil Size in Connection with LASIK & Other Laser Eye Surgeries in August 2006 Issue of Current Opinion in Ophthalmology

LASIK Expert Dr. James Salz Co-Authors Article on Pupil Size in Connection with LASIK & Other Laser Eye Surgeries in August 2006 Issue of Current Opinion in Ophthalmology

In the article entitled “Pupil Size and Corneal Laser Surgery” published in the August 2006 Issue of Current Opinion in Ophthalmology on refractive surgery Dr. Salz and Dr. Trattler reviewed recent findings on the role of scotopic pupil size as a factor in predicting night vision complaints from patients who have had laser surgery operations such as LASIK. Dr. Salz and Dr. Trattler recommend that laser eye surgeons accurately measure pupil size of prospective patients in a dark room and advise patients with large pupils of their increased risk as part of their standard informed consent procedure. In addition, studies have shown that Laser eye surgery utilizing Wavefront-based laser eye treatments, which can include LASIK, have reduced the incidence of these complaints compared to conventional treatments.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 7, 2006

Dr. James Salz (www. drsalz. com) co-authored an article entitled “Pupil Size and Corneal Laser Surgery” in the August 2006 issue of Current Opinion in Ophthalmology on refractive surgery. The article was co-written with Dr. William Trattler. In the article, Dr. Salz and Dr. Trattler reviewed recent findings on the role of scotopic pupil size as a factor in predicting night vision complaints from patients who have had laser surgery operations such as LASIK.

According to Dr. Salz, “This article reviews the current thinking on the importance of pupil size. Many patients with large nighttime pupils have night vision complaints following laser refractive surgery procedures such as LASIK. Laser eye surgeons should measure the pupils of prospective patients accurately in a dark room and advise them of a potential increased risk if their pupils are larger than normal. This course of action is an important aspect of the informed consent process. Wavefront-based laser eye treatments, which can include LASIK, have reduced the incidence of these complaints compared to conventional treatments. Patients who do not improve with time can often be helped with eye drops, which can reduce the pupil size for several hours.

Celebrate Earth Day at one of The Nature Conservancy's Preserves

Celebrate Earth Day at one of The Nature Conservancy's Preserves

Reconnect With ArizonaÂ’s Natural Beauty, Diverse Wildlife And Cultural Heritage In Quiet, Outdoor Sanctuaries

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 20, 2005

Urban-weary Arizonans looking for an Earth Day escape can rediscover the stateÂ’s simple and bucolic pleasures at four of The Nature ConservancyÂ’s outdoor preserves located around Arizona. In addition to scenic landscapes, preserve visitors will enjoy hiking, bird-watching, glimpses of wildlife and guided walks where docents explain the interdependence of plants and animals.

“If we’re going to protect Arizona’s unique natural assets, we need to learn about and experience them,” said Pat Graham, state director of The Nature Conservancy in Arizona. “Many of us living in urban areas are spending less and less time outdoors. Our preserves provide the perfect place to get outside and explore the natural world around us.”

The Conservancy’s Patagonia-Sonoita Creek Preserve will offer several guided nature walks this weekend, April 23-24, in conjunction with “The Birdland Art and Nature Affair” in Patagonia (call preserve for details or visit www. patagoniaaz. com). All four Conservancy preserves listed below will celebrate Earth Day next week with docent-led nature walks on Saturday morning, April 30, at the times indicated:

Phoenix Area

• Hassayampa River Preserve: The 100-mile-long, mostly underground Hassayampa River—one of the Sonoran DesertÂ’s few flowing, un-dammed rivers—surfaces in this lush river setting to provide a home to more than 280 resident and migratory bird species, including several varieties of hummingbirds. Site of one of ArizonaÂ’s first guest ranches, the historic 660-acre preserve also supports one of the desertÂ’s best remaining stands of cottonwood-willow forest. Docent-led nature walk 8:30-10:30 a. m.; reservations required by April 28. Call (928) 684-2772 for information.. Located on Highway 60, three miles southeast of Wickenburg. Currently open 8:00 a. m. to 5:00 p. m. Wednesday through Sunday. Admission $5 per person over 12, Conservancy members $3.

Tucson Area

• Patagonia-Sonoita Creek Preserve: Nestled in a verdant valley between the Patagonia and Santa Rita mountains—at the heart of ArizonaÂ’s ranching and wine-making country—this 1,350-acre preserve protects magnificent, streamside 100-foot-high cottonwood and willow trees more than a century old. Spring-fed Sonoita Creek also supports an incredibly diverse neighborhood of butterflies, birds, wildlife and endangered fishes, including the Gila topminnow. Docent-led nature walk 9:00-11:00 a. m. Call (520) 394-2400 for information. Located 60 miles southeast of Tucson, near Patagonia. Currently open 6:30 a. m. to 4:00 p. m. Wednesday through Sunday. Admission $5, Conservancy members $3, Patagonia residents and children under 16 free.

• Ramsey Canyon Preserve: This world-renowned bird-watching paradise hosts such rare species as the elegant trogon in its steep mountain canyon sheltered by a canopy of trees. The preserveÂ’s unusually moist, cool environment is home to more than 400 plant types, with water-loving trees like sycamores and maples sharing the banks of Ramsey Creek with cacti, yucca and agaves. Surrounding the preserve, mountains rising abruptly from native prairies create sky “islands.” Docent-led nature walk 9:00-11:00 a. m. Call (520) 803-6873 for information. Located 90 miles southeast of Tucson, 10 miles south of Sierra Vista. Currently open 8:00 a. m. to 5:00 p. m. daily. Admission $5, Conservancy members and Cochise County residents $3, children under 16 free.

• Muleshoe Ranch Preserve: Stretching across 49,000 acres, this rugged and diverse landscape ranges from Sonoran and Chihuahuan desert at 3,400 feet to pine trees at elevations over 7,500 feet high. Flowing strong, five perennial streams criss-cross the preserveÂ’s robust prairie lands and support fishes like the Gila chub. The Conservancy shares management of the area with federal agencies—together, theyÂ’re using controlled fires to make damaged lands healthy again. Docent-led nature walk 8:00-10:00 a. m. Call (520) 507-5229 for information. Located 30 miles northwest of Willcox. Currently open Thursday through Monday through Memorial Day. No admission fee. Casita-style lodging available.

Planclear Study Highlights Positron's 2010 Progress

Planclear Study Highlights Positron's 2010 Progress

PlanClear, the nuclear medicine industry's premier Growth Management firm, has finalized and issued its performance report for the 2010 3rd Qtr and (partial) 4th Qtr accomplishments of industry leader Positron (POSC). The PlanClear report highlighted the accomplishment of three critical benchmarks: 1) Sale of 15 PET Camera systems within one year after receiving FDA approval, 2) Eliminating debt and strengthening the POSC balance sheet, and 3) Successful R&D efforts resulting in a new product launch that will automate SPECT dispensing process.

Herndon, VA (PRWEB) December 1, 2010

PlanClear, the nuclear medicine industry's premier Growth Management firm, has finalized and issued its performance report for the 2010 3rd Qtr and (partial) 4th Qtr accomplishments of industry leader Positron (POSC).

The PlanClear report highlighted the accomplishment of three critical benchmarks:

1) Sale of 15 PET Camera systems within one year after receiving FDA approval,
2) Eliminating debt and strengthening the POSC balance sheet, and
3) Successful R&D efforts resulting in a new product launch that will automate SPECT dispensing process.

"We wanted an independent study done by a company that truly understands the nuclear medicine field and the rapidly changing dynamics of the sector," said Positron CEO Patrick Rooney, "and are thrilled to receive such a strong vote of confidence in our strategy - and results."

PlanClear’s analysis shows the demand for PET cameras will continue to grow in the next ten years, with the dominant emerging design to be the PET-Only camera. PlanClear believes that although SPECT will gradually decline in the next decade, it will continue to play an important role in nuclear medicine. Specifically, the SPECT value chain will be altered via automation, with radiopharmaceutical intermediaries eliminated and direct customer access established between generator manufacturers and end users. PlanClear sees a strong future for Positron, as the company’s newly launched product will play a critical role in the SPECT value chain transformation.

PlanClear's report confirms that Positron's management is now taking the company in the right direction, with a leadership team providing the right balance between strategy and operating expertise. PlanClear does caution that execution and operating risks can impact future progress, and hence management would need a continuing and unwavering focus on operating excellence.

"PlanClear is impressed with the growth performance of the company – especially given that these results were achieved during extremely unfavorable economic conditions when healthcare spending had stagnated. We consequently see strong potential for the company," said the PlanClear CEO Al Naqvi.

Entrepreneurs From Around the World Enter Boomer Market Contest

Entrepreneurs From Around the World Enter Boomer Market Contest

Silicon Valley Boomer Business Plan Competition draws innovative companies targeting the 40+ marketplace.

Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) March 22, 2007

Enormous business opportunities are being created around the world as countries grow older. In the United States alone, baby boomers now spend more than $2 trillion per year on goods and services, driven by the lifestage transitions they're making in areas such as housing, health, fitness, fashion, finance, romance, travel and family.

Opportunities for service and profit are also expanding throughout Europe and Japan, where populations are aging rapidly, as well as in fast-developing countries like China and India, where mature consumers comprise a burgeoning market segment.

Recognizing these opportunities, entrepreneurs around the globe are developing products and services geared for consumers age 40 and up.

The 2007 Silicon Valley Boomer Business Plan Competition attracts new ventures from entrepreneurs, early-stage companies and college students around the world. The Competition is co-produced by Santa Clara University's Leavey School of Business and Mary Furlong & Associates.

New Mexico VA Health Care System Selects Sensotech Wireless Temperature Monitoring System

New Mexico VA Health Care System Selects Sensotech Wireless Temperature Monitoring System

NMVAHCS improves safety and regulatory compliance and increases operational efficiency by selecting Sensotech cutting edge wireless monitoring system to monitor its main hospital, clinics, healthcare, and medical and research facilities.

Tarzana, CA (PRWEB) December 29, 2009

NMVAHCS improves safety and regulatory compliance and increases operational efficiency by selecting Sensotech cutting edge wireless monitoring solution to monitor its main hospital, clinics, healthcare, and medical and research facilities. Simi Valley, CA Dec 26, 2009 -- The NMVAHCS has selected Sensotech over the existing wireless temperature monitoring systems and data loggers due to its scalability, compliance, reporting capability and for its zero cost infrastructure models. They needed a system that is simple, secure, non subscription based or hosted, and that offers a comprehensive reporting capability. In addition, Sensotech can meet future expansion needs of the NMVAHCS.

Before Sensotech, healthcare facilities had limited options. They either had to use an antiquated hardware/software based system (client server technology) that runs on a 20 year old platform, or a web based system that is hosted or subscription based with major security concerns. With the web hosting solution data resides outside of the facilities’ private networks and fire walls therefore the vendor becomes the sole custodian and has to be trusted to protect the data!
Healthcare facilities now have a better choice. With its patent pending and breakthrough embedded technology, Sensotech raises the bar on current and available wireless temperature monitoring technologies on the market.

Users Speak Out About SAP NetWeaver

Users Speak Out About SAP NetWeaver

Service Oriented Archiectures are the future of enterprise software, and this ground-breaking report on SAP NetWeaver early adopters delivers insights and recommendations.

Orange, CA (PRWEB) January 4, 2006

Based on 300 user interviews split between existing R/3 users and early adopters to NetWeaver, this comprehensive report provides an insightful look into early adopters of SAP's NetWeaver platform and their experiences regarding scalability, integration, usability, and emerging set of best practices.

This report provides invaluable insights into what the profile of SAP NetWeaver customers is quickly emerging as, compares SAP NetWeaver with Web Services, and defines Service Oriented Architecture insights from this exclusive set of users spoken with. Applications used today and users' roadmaps for the futures are defined here in detail, and there are recommendations for companies who are considering the NetWeaver platform. The momentum of SAP's partnerships' efforts are also explained succinctly and to the level anyone evaluating NetWeaver needs to know. The bottom line is that if you compete with, are considering purchasing, or are interested in what SAP NetWeaver early adopters are thinking, buy this report.

Specific insights include:

 For many NetWeaver adopters, scaling across a global value chain is the vision that is accomplishable yet difficult. Issues of complex integration with legacy systems, internal political battles, licensing issues with SAP and concerns about security all make this strategy stay in vision versus reality status.  Consumer Products and Chemicals are the two verticals leading the SAP R/3 customer base in adopting NetWeaver. Healthcare, Higher Education & Research, Insurance and Life Sciences are lagging relative to all other verticals SAP competes in.  Existing SAP customers are 70% more likely to be early adopters of NetWeaver than non-SAP accounts. SAP is being successful in its upsell strategy to existing accounts.  Even the most loyal SAP customers are using NetWeaver the majority of time outside their firewalls. For many of the early adopters, NetWeaver is the foundation for internal processes that are secure already and have strong ROI associated with them.

AP9 HomeWorksPlus Offers Sons and Daughters Affordable, Useful Ideas for FatherÂ’s Day Gifts

AP9 HomeWorksPlus Offers Sons and Daughters Affordable, Useful Ideas for FatherÂ’s Day Gifts

AP9 Homework Plus, from Adaptive Marketing LLC, Provides Members Significant Savings on Home Interests, Yard Needs, Much More

Stamford, CT (PRWEB) May 25, 2005

With FatherÂ’s Day less than a month away, savvy members of AP9 HomeWorksPlus (http://www. homeworksplus-program. com/), a leading membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, can access their benefits via DealPass. com to make sure their FatherÂ’s Day gifts are both appealing and affordable.

While many fathers will say the best FatherÂ’s Day gift is simply spending time with them, AP9 HomeWorksPlus (http://www. homeworksplus-program. com/) members can give Dad the perfect gift while saving money (something every parent would be proud of). Members can access a variety of savings on home and yard needs as well as family interests. They can log on to the members-only website at DealPass (http://www. DealPass. com) to save at major home centers, department stores and other national retailers.

AP9 HomeWorksPlus has a few ideas on gifts you can offer in addition to quality time:

Help around the house. Whether you chip in on some yard work or indoor renovations, or you hire a professional to do it, your father will appreciate a little help with home and yard maintenance. Tools heÂ’ll use. Many fathers fancy themselves a handyman. Check your fatherÂ’s toolkit for worn-out items; those are the tools he uses, and heÂ’ll appreciate the upgrade. Gadgets and gear. Men canÂ’t help themselves; when they see a new doohickey, they want to check it out. From iPods and cellphone cameras to GPS systems, fishfinders, golfing gizmos and more, thereÂ’s a gadget out there with your fatherÂ’s name on it. The gourmet touch. If you canÂ’t be there to prepare a delicious meal for your father, send a gift basket of gourmet foods or a bottle of wine that heÂ’ll want to save for a special occasion. The gift of entertainment. How does your father amuse himself in his leisure time? With classic black-and-white movies? The latest political tome? Big-band sounds? Whatever it is, you can bet thereÂ’s a book, CD or DVD that will keep him entertained.

While each father has his own unique interests and personality, AP9 HomeWorksPlus knows that the most important part of a FatherÂ’s Day Gift is the affection behind it.

Dr. Milind Ambe has released the Dr. Ambe skin care line to the public. Formerly available only to the doctor’s clients, the surgeon-created skin care line is now offered to customers throughout Newport Beach and the rest of the country through an online store.

Newport Beach, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) December 07, 2010

Dr. Milind Ambe has released the Ambe skin care line to the public. Formerly available only to the doctor’s clients, the surgeon-created skin care line is now offered to customers throughout Newport Beach and the rest of the country through an online store.

The Ambe skin care system, known as Ambé Private Client Formulas, is a fully inclusive skin care system designed by a plastic surgeon for his patients. It helps patients deal with all types of problems associated with aging, including wrinkles, lines, dullness, pore size, skin tone, uneven pigmentation, age spots, texture issues, and even skin dehydration. Customers who continuously use Ambé Private Client Formulas report an improvement in these situations and an overall improvement in appearance.

When asked about his product and what makes it different from other high-end skin care products, Dr. Ambe stated, “We took a great deal of time to find a formulation that makes the skin healthier. Ambé Private Client Formulas uses nutrition to repair and revitalize the skin, rather than alcohol to strip the skin. Our clients see improvement because their skin is allowed to stay or become healthy, not dried out and dull.”

The Ambe Skin Care line is a favorite among Orange County and Newport Beach celebrities. Tamra Barney of Real Housewives of Orange County has been a patient of Dr. Ambe for quite some time, and she has been using the system. It has worked so well for her that she became the spokes-model for it. In fact, Tamra Barney states that Ambé Private Client Formulas is what caused her to be named the hottest housewife on the show. As she says, “The product makes my skin tighter, more radiant, and more luminous, making me look better than my 20 year old self.” Ms. Barney has been using the products for two years.

The Ambe Skin Care system contains everything a woman needs for healthy skin. It has a full skin care system, including cleansers, toners, serums, moisturizers, and specialty treatments. Dr. Ambe also offers skin care tools to his customers. In addition, he has developed a line of cosmetics that are healthier for the skin than traditional options.

How to Stop Snoring (and Perhaps Save a Marriage)

How to Stop Snoring (and Perhaps Save a Marriage)

What if your spouse left your bed every night - preferring to sleep on the couch? The EasyAir (www. myeasyair. com) has been helping snorers and their spouses find relief in Europe since 1995. Now patented internationally, the device is available for sale in the United States, a country teeming with snorers.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 18, 2006

What if your spouse left your bed every night - preferring to sleep on the couch?

That’s what happens to millions of couples every night when one of the partners snores.

“There’s no easy answer to what causes snoring, ” says Dr. Atle Freng, a leading Norwegian otolaryngologist.*. “Invasive surgery is a last resort, but even that doesn’t guarantee success. I always recommend trying to tame the snoring problem naturally if possible.”

Snoring can cripple a relationship. It can also become a health risk. Sprays and pills touted to eliminate snoring don’t always work and have side effects, some of them dangerous. And few people find relief with the strips or earplugs. So, what’s the solution?

Enter Dr. Ole Sigmund Braathen of Olso, Norway. His creation, the EasyAir (www. myeasyair. com), has been helping snorers and their spouses find relief in Europe since 1995. Now patented internationally, the device is available for sale in the United States, a country teeming with snorers. An alarming 1 out of four people have serious snoring issues. At one time or another, almost all adults suffer from snoring.

The results have been miraculous for Easyair users. One couple from Raleigh, North Carolina had tried everything and were spending every night in separate beds. “It wasn’t good at all for our relationship. Somehow sleeping together is an integral part of intimacy,” says Julie Tams, whose partner snores incessantly. “We tried everything short of surgery. When I found the EasyAir on the Internet, I bought it, in reality, because it was only $20. Even if it didn’t work for me, at that price, it was worth trying.” The couple tried it and the first night they found relief. “We both slept through the night for the first time in months!”

The EasyAir works naturally by increasing airflow through the nasal passage, which increases air intake to reduce or eliminate snoring.

About EasyAir

EasyAir is a product of Bionor USA. EasyAir effectively and safely relieves the symptoms of snoring and other breathing related issues. Bionor USA has its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. For more information about Bionor USA or EasyAir, visit www. myeasyair. com or contact Dan Antonelli 404-259-8614

Wildly Popular Natural Health Champion Shocks, Informs Readers With Outrageous Web Content

Wildly Popular Natural Health Champion Shocks, Informs Readers With Outrageous Web Content

NewsTarget. com's Mike Adams gains popularity as a strong proponent of natural health and harsh critic of conventional medicine.

(PRWEB) August 11, 2005

You can't argue with his popularity. Natural health writer and modern medicine critic Mike Adams is now reaching half a million readers monthly with articles, commentary and satire pieces found at NewsTarget. com, now the internet's fastest-growing natural health website.

Even without an advertising campaign, word about the site is spreading across the 'net, and readers keep coming back for an apparently good reason: the content is astounding. It's also polarizing: you'll either love it or hate it, depending on what you believe about health and medicine.

Adams, who swore off conventional medicine and turned to natural health to transform his own life, venomously attacks the principle players of conventional medicine: doctors, surgeons, drug companies and even the FDA. Although he isn't winning any friends in the ivory towers of modern medicine, he is winning the attention of literally millions of site visitors. Readers are flocking to NewsTarget. com to read his essays, listen to his free MP3 rants, and learn more about solving common health problems without drugs or surgery.

Adams may be radical, but he at least has a point of credibility: he posts his own astonishing health statistics and blood chemistry lab tests for everyone to see. With an LDL cholesterol of 67, blood pressure of 105/60, and a bone mineral density score better than most 20-year-olds, it's hard to argue with this 35-year-old champion of personal health transformation whose own health statistics probably put most doctors to shame.

"When doctors question my credibility, I ask them to post their own blood chemistry results online," explains Adams. "As of yet, not a single doctor has agreed to do it. You know why? Because they aren't healthy." That's the kind of blunt criticism you'll hear from this middle-aged guy who isn't afraid to put doctors in their place when it comes to actually teaching people how to be healthy.

You can find Adams' health statistics, mission statement and fitness photos at http://www. HealthRanger. org (http://www. HealthRanger. org)

MobiHealth Provides Healthcare Practitioners with Ability to Research and Retrieve Essential Drug Information Directly at the Bedside on a Handheld

MobiHealth Provides Healthcare Practitioners with Ability to Research and Retrieve Essential Drug Information Directly at the Bedside on a Handheld

Agreement with Gold Standard Multimedia Enhances Wireless Clinical Applications

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) May 26, 2004 -–

MobiHealth, Inc., a leading provider of wireless clinical solutions and premier technology firm to enhance healthcare delivery at the point of care, announced that it has signed an agreement with industry leading electronic drug information developer, Gold Standard Multimedia (GSM), to integrate its award-winning Clinical Pharmacology drug information content into MobiHealth’s clinical suite of applications.

“Our clinical solutions are designed around providing healthcare practitioners with timely, accurate and clinically-relevant information during the decision-making process at the point of care on a handheld device,” said Gene Poole, Director of Sales and Marketing of MobiHealth. “Through this partnership, we hope to enhance physicians’ and other clinicians’ productivity, saving them invaluable time, and also to improve clinical outcomes.”

GSM’s Clinical Pharmacology drug data for handheld devices arms users with current, peer-reviewed, clinically-relevant content, including drug descriptions, indications, interactions, precautions/ contraindications, classifications, adverse reactions, pregnancy/ lactation and administration information, and dosage forms/strengths. Drug information covers US prescription drugs, over-the-counter products, and herbal supplement. Pediatric, adult, geriatric, and pregnancy dosing specific to indication, including off-label uses – plus renal and hepatic dosing and dosage limits – is also featured. Drug Interactions can be checked against lifestyle factors, such as caffeine, food, alcohol, enteral feedings, grapefruit juice and tobacco, and interaction severity rankings are available. Clinical Pharmacology’s IV Compatibility data checks the compatibility of two or more intravenous products and/or solutions when mixed in solution or a syringe, or via Y-site administration.

“We are delighted to have been selected by MobiHealth to provide drug information and medication management tools within their clinical solutions at the point of care,” said Marianne Messer, SVP Sales and Marketing of Gold Standard Multimedia. “Point of care applications are ideal for helping to reduce medication errors, which have been reported to adversely affect over 770,000 lives each year.”

Written by healthcare professionals for healthcare practitioners, Clinical Pharmacology provides a broad scope of critical information during the patient encounter to create a detailed profile of the patient’s therapeutic regimen, identifying potential interactions, adverse reactions, contraindications, allergies, drug/medical condition mismatches, and therapeutic duplication. With the addition of GSM’s Clinical Pharmacology drug information tools, GSM and MobiHealth’s integrated solutions provide a healthcare infrastructure, which establishes electronic communications between physicians, prescribers and pharmacists to make the electronic exchange of prescription information a reality.

”With our recently announced strategic alliances with RxHub and Surescripts, our new alignment with Clinical Pharmacology will round out our suite of mobile software offerings, allowing healthcare practitioners access to patient-specific information, including formulary, generic alternatives, drug interaction warnings, and other decision support information to treat patients safely, and to route electronically, fax and print prescriptions directly at the bedside from a handheld,” continued Poole.

MobiHealth offers a personalized approach to meet the individual needs of physicians, nurses and clinicians. By providing the flexibility to access existing patient information and clinical tools during the patient encounter from Hospital Information Systems and Practice Management Systems, MobiHealth connects disparate health information systems, creating a cost-effective approach for interoperability via HL7 messaging integrated with its proprietary m-Integrator interface engine.
