The Unseen Killer in Cold Weather and During Power Outages: How to Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning


Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) November 15, 2014

Each cold weather season and during each major power outage, the Life Support Technologies group (LST) sees a spike in Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning victims at its northeastern U.S. hospital-based hyperbaric medicine facilities. Potentially fatal carbon monoxide poisoning can be avoided with a little knowledge and some planning: maintain appliances and engines in good working condition, and do not operate charcoal grills, fuel-burning space heaters, portable generators, car or truck engines in confined spaces.

The spike in CO cases during the first cold weather spells can usually be traced to improperly serviced heating system, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The CPSC advises having heating units serviced before cold weather sets in. Spikes in CO cases resulting from winter storms and power outages is attributed to the increased use of gas-powered emergency electrical generators, the use of fuel-burning space heaters in enclosed areas, and even people who try and seek shelter in their running vehicles.

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, highly poisonous gas emitted by car and truck engines, furnaces, fuel-burning space heaters, charcoal grills, cooking ranges, water heaters, fireplaces, portable generators, wood-burning stoves, and smoke. When inhaled, CO bonds 230 times more readily with the blood’s hemoglobin than oxygen; CO prevents hemoglobin from transporting oxygen. When not fatal, CO can cause serious loss of cognitive function if not detected early and properly treated.

Symptoms of CO poisoning include: dull headache, weakness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, confusion, blurred vision, and loss of consciousness. CO poisoning symptoms may be misdiagnosed as flu, food poisoning or a host of other maladies.

It is advisable to install a carbon monoxide detector near the sleeping area, but away from appliances or humid areas, according to the CPSC.

When CO poisoning is diagnosed, the standard of care is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. HBOT involves the patient breathing 100% oxygen while they are under increased atmospheric pressure inside a hyperbaric chamber. Usually, multiple HBOT treatments are required to completely break the carbon monoxide-hemoglobin bond so that the victim’s blood can again properly transport life-sustaining oxygen.

Carbon Monoxide can overcome unsuspecting individuals or entire families while they sleep. The best treatment results are obtained when medical treatment occurs promptly after the onset of CO poisoning.

In the event that carbon monoxide poisoning is suspected, it is crucial that victims immediately get away from the source of the carbon monoxide. This may entail evacuating family and occupants from inside a house. Everyone who has been exposed — or potentially exposed — to carbon monoxide must then be taken promptly to a hospital for evaluation. While waiting for transportation to the hospital and while being transported, persons suspected of having been exposed to carbon monoxide should breathe 100% medical grade oxygen.

The Benefits of a Breast Cancer Fitness Program

The Benefits of a Breast Cancer Fitness Program

Breast cancer is one of the most difficult to deal with conditions in the world. Although it typically only affects women, there are some men that have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the past. The term breast cancer refers to a malignant tumor that has developed from cells in the breast, and there are actually two different types of tumor that can develop in the breast.

There are the benign tumors which are non-cancerous, and malignant tumors which are cancerous.

What to do After Being Diagnosed

If you are ever diagnosed with breast cancer of course you are going to be in a state of shock at first. For your own good however, you are going to need to quickly figure out what your path to treatment is going to be, your way to recover. Although there are lots of different options available to you here, creating a breast cancer fitness program is going to be a smart move.

With a breast cancer fitness program you are really doing the best thing, because a breast cancer fitness program is not just a temporary treatment, but instead a lifelong treatment that will not only help you hopefully get rid of the breast cancer you have now but avoid getting it back in the future as well.

There are a few different aspects that are going to be involved in your breast cancer fitness program. One is your diet, the different foods that you are going to be eating. You can exercise all you want after all, but if you are not eating the right foods and giving your body the fuel that it needs then you are not going to be able to strive, it is as simple as that.

Also important in your breast cancer fitness program is the exercise that you are getting. You cannot just let your body sit around and get unhealthy and out of shape. You should be working out at least three times a week, for a half hour to an hour each time. With the right combination of healthy eating and a strict exercise regime, you will be able to keep yourself in great shape and hopefully keep breast cancer at bay for good.

Your health is one of the most important things that you should be worried about in your life, so make sure that you treat yourself right and do not just let your health go to dirt.

Tips Awareness and Prevention of Breast Cancer

Awareness Month in October is breast cancer. Men and women can take preventative measures to prevent breast cancer and stay healthy. The essentials within your grasp include:

• Aerobic exercise 3-4 times a week
• Maintaining a positive mental attitude
• Breathwork and deepening body-awareness (yoga is great)
• Expressing your feelings to keep your energy flow
• Eating healthy foods and taking the “right” supplements
• Avoid toxicity.

Some things to avoid:

Any restriction of drugs. Products such as Tylenol, Sudafid, Bromo seltzer, vicodin, and many other leading down by the glutathione levels in the body. The glutathione is an essential antioxidant and pjo ‘detoxifier.

Aspartame (not to be confused with aspirate) has been shown to cause cancer in rats. They are common ingredients in many no-sugar products such as yoghurt, ice cream, desserts and joined with carbonated beverages. The Splendid is also harmful.

Toxin-free, organic products guide. Wash all fruits and vegetables thoroughly with soapy water to remove chemical residues. Better yet, buy only organic products and (non-genetically modified) food non-GMO. Read labels (Veggies and fruit will be 9 to indicate organic and 8 for non-GMO).

Active computer screens should be at least 18 inches away from your body. You must be at least 36 inches from your active television screens.

The only tender breasts are the number one method for changes in breast health. Finding any symptoms does not mean you have cancer. Early detection means your survival, and thrive rate is very high. It also means that you have a wide range of alternative and complementary treatment options. So learn the signs.

Nobody knows your body as well. That’s why it is essential to the competition while your breasts every month – so you can detect any changes that occur. When you self-tender reassure that your body is still in great condition.

There are numerous websites that now offer instruction to self-tenders. I prefer an institution, offers an interactive video you can watch on your home computer, making your contest.

Many women find it helpful to have a buddy to call each month to remind or be reminded to conduct the self-tender. It is never too late to start a good habit, so invite a Yoga buddy to be the breast health buddy now.

The signs to pay attention to include the following:

• One piece, a hard knot or a density
• Swelling, warmth
• Redness or darkening
• Change in size or form
• Wrinkling or skin
• Anaphylaxis
• Itching or scaling, especially in the nipple
• To pull in of your nipple or other breast areas
• Sudden discharge from the nipple
• New pain in one place

Some customers have reported one or more symptoms to their doctors, and told that there is “nothing.” That may be true. Often the tracks and rashes are a sign of cancer. Rely on your inner wisdom. What if it senses no-RIGHT, then still other aspects until satisfied with the results.
