North Shore-LIJ Completes Last Phase of $50M Upgrade of its Diagnostic Imaging Systems, $12M for GE Low-Dose CT Scanners to Reduce Patients Radiation Exposure

Great Neck, NY (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

The North Shore-LIJ Health System announced today that it completed the last phase of a $ 50 million, three-year project to upgrade its diagnostic imaging systems. The final phase cost $ 12 million and included installing 15 computed tomography (CT) scanners at its healthcare facilities in the metropolitan area to reduce patients’ exposure to radiation and provide the highest quality imaging.

CT technology is a critical tool for diagnosis and early detection of cancers, cardiac disease, neurological problems, trauma, inflammation and other conditions.

Last June, North Shore-LIJ announced at a news conference its purchase of 15 GE low dose CT scanners for 10 of its facilities on Long Island and in New York City. This initiative was part of the first, $ 50 million step in an on-going effort by the health system to replace or update all of its conventional diagnostic imaging systems through quality initiatives designed to assure cutting edge technological capabilities while also assuring patient safety. In addition to the equipment, North Shore-LIJ also installed system-wide monitoring software, which tracks radiation exposure by CT, creating a database that monitors levels of emission and helps radiologists adjust their practices based on the latest clinical evidence.

“North Shore-LIJ is one of the first health systems in the country to replace or upgrade all of its diagnostic imaging equipment to reduce patients’ risks to radiation exposure,” said Michael J. Dowling, president and chief executive officer of North Shore-LIJ. “This initiative is a significant investment in our commitment to move beyond treating illness but also to protect public health.”

The Joint Commission, the nation’s top hospital and healthcare accrediting organization, issued a sentinel alert about the long-term radiation risks of diagnostic imaging in 2011. Jason Naidich, MD, chairman of radiology at North Shore-LIJ, said the health system was already planning its major project to upgrade its CTs and radiology equipment when the report made national news.

“North Shore-LIJ has a comprehensive radiology safety program across its hospitals and outpatient imaging facilities,” Dr. Naidich said. “Our radiology physicians, technologists, and physicists are specifically trained in radiation safety and are committed to limiting patients’ exposure to the lowest dose necessary to make the proper diagnosis.

“We offer low-dose CT imaging in every community the health system serves and all of our emergency departments are equipped with the most-up-to-date, low-dose CT scanners,” Dr. Naidich said. “This is important for everyone, but especially for children and young adults who may be more susceptible to harm from radiation exposure over time.”

“When used appropriately, CT is a safe tool that can save lives. At North Shore – LIJ, our patients can be confident that we are using this innovative technology to make their imaging procedures even safer.”

LIDT’s Silvers Summit Presents Arianna Huffington and Deepak Chopra, MD, on Using Tech to Reduce Stress

New York, NY (PRWEB) December 13, 2012

Stress and its impact on health is too often ignored. However, today there are many ways in which new technologies can help the older population alleviate stress to live a healthier life. This couldnt happen soon enough. The senior age group is now, for the first time, the largest in terms of size and percent of the population in the U.S. By 2015, those aged 50 and older will represent 45% of the U.S. population (AARP).

Its been shown that stress can exacerbate any number of conditions leading to poor health, but what if technology, which is often thought to cause stress, could be turned around and shown to alleviate and help manage stress? said Jill Gilbert, co-producer of Silvers Summit. We felt it was important to offer a session that would highlight the companies, stress reducing practices and technologies that are already stepping up.

"Tech for the Soul #behappy," a special session moderated by Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief, Huffington Post, with special guest Deepak Chopra, MD, co-author of Super Brain and Founder of The Chopra Foundation and Chopra Center, has been added to the powerhouse lineup at Silvers Summit during the 2013 International CES

Debt Consolidation USA Finds Debt Negotiation a Way to Reduce Medical Bills Amid Rising Health Care Costs


New York, New York (PRWEB) September 28, 2012

The US Supreme Courts decision to uphold President Barack Obamas Affordable Care Act (ACA) may have brought hope to millions of Americans struggling to get health insurance but with health care costs reportedly rising faster than the countrys inflation rate, many are still faced with the prospect of paying for bigger medical bills. DebtConsolidationUSA.com recently revealed that debt negotiation could bring relief to many Americans drowning deep in medical debt.

Acting as a mediator between creditors and debtors, Debt Consolidation USA has been able to present viable options to clients for either lowering their monthly payments for consolidated debts or getting their total medical debts decreased. A recent Arizona client shares, At DebtConsolidationUSA.com, I found the perfect solution to my medical debt. This company offered to represent me to my debtors, lower my monthly payments and actually eliminate the debt within four years or less. They do all this without lending me any money or putting me into more debt. They do not do this through a loan. Instead, the debt advisers here help you to amass a large sum of money with which they negotiate with your debtors.

The latest report from the Commonwealth Fund, an advocate for health reform, indicates that while a number of young adults have joined or stayed on their parents health plans due in part to the ACA, 41 percent still cant afford health care and 36 percent of that figure are currently unable to pay off medical debts. Debt Consolidation USA aims to help a percentage of those with medical bill problems by offering to professionally negotiate on their behalf. This could mean no more harassment from creditors during a critically difficult time in dealing with a financial fallout from an illness and a practicable way out of debt.

Says Debt Consolidation USA, DebtConsolidationUSA.com is a leading information and referral source for debt management and credit counseling. We have been helping people handle their financial issues for nearly a decade. Be it credit card consolidation or debt settlement, we are your source for help and assistance as you seek to restructure your financial foundation.

Aside from providing professional assistance in negotiating the reduction of medical bills, Debt Consolidation USA also offers online consumer credit counseling by periodically publishing instrumental guidelines to reducing debt and/or managing debt consolidation. A post on medical bills had the company advising Americans to verify bills and understand the charges before looking into consolidating medical debts, adding that bills confuse most patients as they are specifically designed for insurance company computers to comprehend.

Debt Consolidation USA shares a startling revelation, All too often mistakes are made on medical bills that can cost the patients hundreds and even thousands of dollars. Medical Billing Advocates of America reports that 80 percent of the hospital bills they review contain errors, so take the time to understand your bill before consolidating!

The company also warns in the same post, Consolidating medical bills is often done with a home equity line of credit (HELOC). While this approach can provide lower monthly payments, the steep downside is that you must put up your home as security, so weigh the consequences first. If you miss payments on medical bills, it can hurt your credit. If you miss payments on a HELOC, you can lose your home.

By reading such crucial information and obtaining practical steps towards debt management, online visitors are able to compare debt solutions from Debt Consolidation USA with other existing options.

Debt Consolidation USA states, We are developing a one-stop resource designed to assist people in understanding their options as it relates to debt consolidation, debt settlement, and credit counseling.

Sports Columnist Paula Duffy Brings National Attention to Need for Protective Mouth Guards in Sports to Reduce Concussions

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 11, 2008

Paula Duffy, National Sports Examiner for Examiner.com and regular contributor to The Huffington Post wrote an article ('If a Simple Mouth Guard Can Prevent Concussions, Why Isn't the NFL All Over It?') that has ignited interest in and directed attention towards ways to reduce or prevent the alarming number of sports-related concussions, especially in the National Football League.

Duffy's column in the Examiner.com (http://www.Examiner.com) expressing concern for St. Louis Rams quarterback Trent Green and his return to the field after suffering two concussions in one calendar year, including one at the most severe level identified by medical professionals, elicited an informative phone call from Mahercor Laboratories, LLC. Headed up by the New England Patriot's team dentist for more than two decades, Dr. Gerald Maher, Mahercor Laboratories (http://www.mahercorlabs.com) has developed an innovative mouth guard, The Maher Mouth Guard, which aids in the prevention of concussions for all athletes participating in contact sports, from professionals to youth players.

Dr. Maher says that the current NFL-approved helmet chin strap directly contributes to concussions that arise from a blow to the jaw. It compacts the end of the jawbone against the skull and increases the likelihood of the bone striking the temporal lobe of the brain, increasing the symptoms of dizziness, the sensation of seeing stars and headaches commonly known as a "ding."

The Maher Mouth Guard helps reduce the chances of suffering from a concussion. The implementation of this properly-fitted mouth guard with the prescribed thickness separates the mandible (lower jaw) from the maxilla (upper jaw). This limits the chance of obtaining a concussion via a direct blow to the jaw. This, as well as wearing properly fitted protective head gear and chin straps allows for the utmost protection from dangerous head trauma.

Duffy's articles in the Examiner.com and Huffington Post center on the questions surrounding the seemingly inexplicable lack of interest by the NFL to study and approve Dr. Maher's product which is already successfully used by the New England Patriots, numerous high school and college athletic programs, individual NFL players and a number of boxing, hockey and lacrosse professionals.

A seven year old NFL study with data that is even older (1996-2001) cites an incidence of .41 concussions per game every week during the football season. Duffy's concern is for players not aware of the anecdotal evidence about the Maher Mouth Guard waiting for the league or their union to give the nod to a product for on-field use. Duffy believes solutions such as those offered by Mahercor Laboratories should be immediately evaluated for use by athletes at risk.

Things may in fact be starting to happen. Researchers recently presented statistical evidence (http://www.mahercorlabs.com/studies.htm) of athletes treated for Temporomandibular (jaw) Disorders (TMD) prior to the fitting of the (Maher) orthotic appliance at the largest collection of concussion experts in the world, the 2008 FIFA International Conference on Concussion in Sport in Zurich Switzerland. This may be the forum needed to fully understand the relevance and benefits of these procedures.

"While a concussion policy in the league has been instituted to prevent players from being forced back onto the field without regard to their health, prevention seems to be the solution in the long run, at least to me," stated Duffy.

Mahercor Laboratories product line includes The Maher Standard Mouth Guard (LEVEL I), an introductory maxillary stabilizing mouth guard designed for someone involved in a sport where mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) from non-direct impacts to the face and jaw are to be expected. The Maher Intact Mouth Guard (LEVEL II) is designed for anyone involved in a sport where mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) from hard impacts to the face and jaws are to be expected. This mouth guard is composed of a multi-layered laminated EVA material to enhance tooth protection and a patent pending posterior occusal rim to improve condyle disk relationship to lessen the potential for concussions. The Maher B-Protect Splint (LEVEL III) is designed to position the condyle-disc assembly into the optimum position to resist concussive forces.

Since its development, no NFL Player wearing any products in The Mahercor Laboratories product line has ever succumbed to a concussion from a blow to the jaw.

About Paula Duffy:

Paula Duffy is a prominent national sports radio personality with a weekly co-hosting role on Sports Journey Radio.

Duffy is the founder of Incidental Contact, LLC (http://www.incidentalcontact.com), a sports learning site for women, which features her acclaimed Daily Dose of Duffy columns and podcasts, the instructional "Woman's Guide To" line of bestselling audio books and her Sports Knowledge To-Go packages.

About Mahercor Laboratories LLC:

Since beginning work with the New England Patriots in 1979, Dr. Maher has learned about player complaints relating to existing mouth guards first-hand. Players expressed the need to be able to breathe, talk and drink with ease and comfort, both from the sidelines as well as during play, without having to take out their mouth guard.

Based on scientific research by Jack Stenger at the University of Notre Dame. This revolutionary device not only held the jaw in place, but also allowed for continuation of common, everyday functions. After years of development, the final product materialized.

In forming Mahercor Laboratories LLC, our hope is to aid in the prevention of concussions for all athletes participating in contact sports, from professionals to youth players.

Brussels Airlines Modifies Fleet To Reduce Fuel Consumption

Brussels Airlines Modifies Fleet To Reduce Fuel Consumption












Reno, NV (PRWEB) May 11, 2010

AeroTech Services, Inc., announced today that substantial fuel savings in commercial service have been proven on Brussels Airline's B737-400 using AeroTech Services' Wing Modification System. Brussels Airlines will now be outfitting the remainder of their B737-400 fleet with the AeroTech wing modification. The uncomplicated modification reduces fuel consumption and emissions by up to 4% on all Boeing 737 Classics (-200, -300, -400, and -500 models).

"A cooperative effort between Brussels Airlines and AeroTech determined that their aircraft reduced fuel burn by an average of 2.7% during cruise. Fuel consumption data is typically not available from the on-board data acquisition system during aircraft climb. As such, the additional fuel reduction in climb, which has been previously proven, was not calculated in the overall savings", states James Nettle, Director, AeroTech Services. Mr. Nettle continued by stating, "It appears that this operator's return on investment, at today's fuel prices, will be less than 12 months".

Currently, the list of companies using the AeroTech modification includes Brussels Airlines, GECAS, Swiftair, MNG Airlines, Shenzhen Donghai Airlines, and Ukraine International Airlines.

The AeroTech B737 modification replicates a NASA designed airfoil by increasing the aircraft's wing area and camber, and lengthening the wing chord; all of which increases the lift-to-drag ratio. The modification has been certified by the U.S. FAA and EASA, and verified to reduce fuel burn during climb and cruise.

Brussels Airlines is a flag carrier airline headquartered at the Brussels International Airport in Zaventem, Belgium and is the largest airline based in Belgium, operating to over 60 destinations in 20 European countries, as well as long-haul flights to East, Central, and West Africa. Lufthansa is a major stock holder of Brussels Airlines. The airline is a member of IATA and the Association of European Airlines (AEA).

AeroTech Services Inc. holds US Patent No. 6,598,834 on the wing modification for all aircraft, and Supplemental Type Certificates from several major civil aviation authorities for the B737 classic models. The company markets and sells this modification worldwide to commercial airline operators. For more information call (702) 405-0325 or, visit the website at http://www.aerotechservices737.com.
