The Top 5 Benefits of Using an Hospital Bed

Hospital beds at home are a good solution for patients who have difficulty getting out of a normal bed or a bed that slips and slips. The right bed will make it easier for you to move around without the help of your carer. Instead of being in an uncomfortable position or reaching for something unnatural, a position that helps you move is a well-located bed.

These types of hospital beds are cheaper than the hospital beds now available but require a lot of effort and can't be operated on those who do not have the physical strength to do so.

These beds make it easier for the patient to sit and lie down, facilitate the caretaker service and give the patient more freedom of movement. Hospital-quality electric beds also make recreation at home more comfortable than staying in bed for long periods of time. This type of bed gives the patient autonomy over his movements, despite the higher price.

Electric hospital beds make it easier for you or a loved one to get medical care at home without having to move into a care home. Hospital beds, also known as electric beds or hospital beds have become indispensable for those recovering from back or abdominal surgery, when they have difficulties getting into and out of bed and cannot position themselves in a normal bed. With the help of an electric bed, nurses can position the patient so that he is safe and supportive so that he can eat, stand up, change clothes and change dressings.

Semi-electric hospital beds use both electric and manual head and foot settings to adjust height, which can be adjusted with a hand crank. These beds are a good choice for those who have a good balance so that it is not necessary to adjust height when the bed is moved. Manual hospital beds require the nurse to make adjustments with a hand crank to adjust the bed to the situation, but it may not be necessary to make regular adjustments.

Hospital beds also have optional side rails in different lengths and designs to ensure a safe setup and prevent falls and injuries when patients enter or exit the bed.

One of the biggest advantages of a hospital bed is the possibility of lowering the floor height of the mattress to make it easier for the patient to get in and out. Adjustable beds have a theoretical advantage over a flat mattress for people with chronic pain. Patients who have difficulty sitting or standing, or who have difficulty standing up, can benefit from an adjustable bed height.

Patients with chronic back pain may find it beneficial to sleep in a bed with a slight inclination so that the upper body is higher and the lower body is supported by the knees.

The curved body support position relieves the lower back. The adjustable bed minimizes joint compression in osteoarthritis patients. The surface consists of several hinges and the bed has an adjustable base at the base of the upper and lower extremities of the body, which can be raised or lowered as required.

Common features are adjustable height of the entire bed from head to foot, adjustable side rails, electronic buttons for operating the bed and other nearby electronic devices.

Hospital beds and other similar types of beds, such as nursing care beds, can be used not only in hospitals but also in other healthcare facilities (such as nursing homes, assisted living facilities, outpatient clinics and home care).

Hospital beds and bedroom beds have the same purpose: sleeping and leisure. While there are manual cranks for hospital beds, reclining beds for home use have features that are covered by Medicare and can be reduced for a price. Self-rotating hospital beds and mattresses make life easier for patients, their carers and their families. Because it is adaptable, hospital patients with back problems, breathing difficulties or mobility problems can get a more leisurely feel by being able to change the height of the head and feet.

With a hospital mattress with varying pressure, the patient no longer has to rely on a nurse to change his posture. The patient is comfortable and able to shift her weight and position independently while she sleeps. This can be done if necessary thanks to a motorized air pump that inflates and bleeds parts of the mattress to ensure regular and even rotation.

The patient is less likely to wake up in the middle of the night with stiffness or pain because he has been in one position for too long. Hip pain, lower back injury, or pain after surgery can make moving or standing up painful.

If you have a medical condition that requires precise posture that is not possible in a normal bed, you may require frequent repositioning. It can also lead to dangerous situations for patients if side rails or other safety features do not work as planned. Falls are a risk when caring for someone at home and can lead to patients having to be readmitted.

Rails are an essential safety tool for patients who want to maintain independence and their ability to go out of bed alone. One of the most important advantages of a hospital bed is its ease of transfer. A hospital bed enables caregivers to raise or lower the height of the bed to facilitate the transport of a patient from sitting position to a chair, wheelchair or walker and reduce pain.

A hospital bed costs an average of about $100,000, with different costs associated with manual, dual-motor, electric, and triple-motor when the whole bed is gone. Other costs are associated with bariatric and heavy models that offer additional width.

Depending on the patient and the level of care required, a decent medical bed or orthopaedic mattress can be considered a long-term investment in the patient's health. The adjustable beds we offer have set the standard for comfort and convenience and have enjoyed a profound reputation since 1969.

Discovery of a Female Cat with Testicles Among Weirdest Pet Claims
Discovery of a Female Cat with Testicles Among Weirdest Pet Claims
A North Shore pet owner got the shock of her life to learn her female cat also had testicles. Along with the discovery of a hermaphrodite cat, other owners have been left perplexed after discovering their pets had consumed anything from a roll of dental floss, compact mirror, blanket, sewing needle to a chicken skewer. These discoveries were among the weirdest PetCare claims received by Southern Cross last year. Lisa Newlands adopted her domestic long haired cat Cameo in 2014 with the reassurance she had been spayed. But at the end of last year, Newlands became suspicious about whether it the standard neutering had worked when her usually feisty cat started befriending a stray male. After Cameo became really sick with a high temperature and stopped eating for the second time in two months, an ultrasound revealed she had a large mass in her stomach area. The ginger cat underwent surgery and for the first time in her vet's 13 year career, she discovered two cancerous testicles in the female feline. Cancerous testicles emit oestrogen, which was why the tom cat was hanging around. "The vet was just bamboozled. She had never seen anything like this in her entire career," Newlands said. Cameo's total vet bill was $2531, but Newlands said fortunately $2013 was covered by pet insurance. Newlands estimated Cameo had racked up almost $10,000 in vet bills since she had owned her because she was notorious for getting in fights with other cats and was grateful most of it had been covered by her pet insurance. Another pet owner also claimed on a hefty $8000 vet bill after their german shepherd cut its leg on a metal shoe rack as it tried to escape from two cats. The traumatic incident resulted in the dog having to undergo two surgeries and receive post operative care. In another case, a labrador retriever went under the knife to remove pieces of a blanket it had eaten from its stomach at a cost of $6000. Another owner commented that they were amazed that the chicken skewer eaten by their miniature poodle came out whole after being endoscopically removed. And a hungry beagle's desire to snaffle up a tasty fruit cake also backfired on it after the raisins caused it to have renal failure. The wee beagle had it's kidneys flushed at the vet. But the list of weird claims gets crazier after a french bulldog ate a whole roll dental floss it had found in a visitor's bag and a Shetland sheepdog had to be treated for munching on dish cloths on two separate occasions. The mischievous mutt managed to escape surgery and was given drugs to help it either poo or vomit the rags out. And it wasn't just playful pooches causing their owners angst, a domestic long haired cat also required surgery to remove a sewing needle it had swallowed and devon rex cat had 46 hair ties surgically removed from its stomach. Both treatments cost their owners more than $2000 each. Southern Cross Pet Insurance general manager Anthony McPhail said everyday, unexpected accidents could end up costing pet owners a lot of money at the veterinary clinic. McPhail said while most of the claims processed were for typical illnesses and routine checks, the ones where pets had managed to eat something they shouldn't have still surprised them. He said the stories could be amusing, but still caused quite a lot of stress to the pet and both its owner and their wallet. "We recommend owners prepare for those unexpected veterinary visits by either setting some money aside or considering pet insurance," McPhail said.

Citing Privacy Concerns, U.S. Panel Urges End to Secret DNA Testing
Citing Privacy Concerns, U.S. Panel Urges End to Secret DNA Testing
NEW YORK (Reuters) - They're called discreet DNA samples, and the Elk Grove, California, genetic-testing company easyDNA says it can handle many kinds, from toothpicks to tampons. Blood stains from bandages and tampons? Ship them in a paper envelope for paternity, ancestry or health testing. EasyDNA also welcomes cigarette butts (two to four), dental floss ("do not touch the floss with your fingers"), razor clippings, gum, toothpicks, licked stamps and used tissues if the more standard cheek swab or tube of saliva isn't obtainable. If the availability of such services seems like an invitation to mischief or worse - imagine a discarded tissue from a prospective employee being tested to determine whether she's at risk for an expensive disease, for instance - the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues agrees. On Thursday it released a report on privacy concerns triggered by the advent of whole genome sequencing, determining someone's complete DNA make-up. Although sequencing "holds enormous promise for human health and medicine," commission chairwoman Amy Gutmann told reporters on Wednesday, there is a "potential for misuse of this very personal data." "In many states someone can pick up your discarded coffee cup and send it for (DNA) testing," said Gutmann, who is the president of the University of Pennsylvania. "It's not a fantasy to think about how, without baseline privacy protection, people could use this in a way that would be really detrimental," such as by denying someone with a gene that raises their risk of Alzheimer's disease long-term care insurance, or to jack up life insurance premiums for someone with an elevated genetic risk of a deadly cancer that strikes people in middle age. "Those who are willing to share some of the most intimate information about themselves for the sake of medical progress should be assured appropriate confidentiality, for example, about any discovered genetic variations that link to increased likelihood of certain diseases, such as Alzheimer's, diabetes, heart disease and schizophrenia," Gutmann said. The commission took on the issue because whole genome sequencing is poised to become part of mainstream medical care, especially by personalizing medical treatments based on a patient's DNA. That has been driven in large part by dramatic cost reductions, from $2.5 billion per genome in the Human Genome Project of the 1990s and early 2000s to $1,000 soon. Several companies, including Illumina Inc. and Life Technology's Ion Torrent division, sell machines that can sequence a genome for a few hundred dollars, but that does not include the analysis to figure out what the string of 3 billion DNA "letters" means. A three-year-old federal law prohibits discrimination in employment or health insurance based on someone's genetic information but does not address other potential misuses of the data. Without such privacy protection, said Gutmann, people may be reluctant to participate in genetic studies that do whole genome sequencing, for fear their genetic data will not be secure and could be used against them. Recommendations from such panels are not binding but have been used as the basis for policy and legislation. One scenario the panel offers is a "contentious spouse" secretly having a DNA sample sequenced and using it in a custody battle "as evidence of unfitness to parent," perhaps because the DNA showed a genetic risk for mental illness or alcoholism. There are no federal laws against that. Or, the panel said, DNA information might be posted in a social networking site "by a malicious stranger or acquaintance," possibly hurting someone's "chance of finding a spouse, achieving standing in a community, or pursuing a desired career path." The bioethics panel recommends a dozen forms of privacy protection, including that "surreptitious commercial testing" be banned: No gene sequencing or other genetic testing should be permitted without consent from the person the DNA came from, it said. About 25 states currently allow such DNA testing. Critics of the lack of genetic privacy thought greater urgency was needed. "The report lays out a lot of important best practices and does endorse further state and federal regulations, but it doesn't offer a timeline," said Jeremy Gruber, president of the Council for Responsible Genetics, a private group that monitors genetic issues. "What will inevitably happen is whole genome sequencing will enter greater use and we won't have proper regulations to insure privacy." A bill introduced in California, home to many DNA testing companies, by state Senator Alex Padilla would ban surreptitious testing, requiring written authorization from the person the genetic sample was taken from. It is not clear how many labs are willing to analyze DNA without that authorization. In practice, well-known genetic testing companies such as privately held 23andMe test only saliva samples that are too large to acquire surreptitiously, such as from a drinking glass or licked stamp. "A person would really know that they are spitting into a tube," said 23andMe spokeswoman Jane Rubinstein. The full report from the presidential commission is at www.bioethics.gov.

How to Cut Corn Off the Cob Easily, Quickly, & Safely
How to Cut Corn Off the Cob Easily, Quickly, & Safely
We've all been there: we're enjoying a nice cob of corn, happily covering our face in butter and salt, when suddenly we realize that there's a thread of corn silk stuck in our teeth. We try to dislodge it with our tongue; no luck. We pick around with our fingers; still no luck. That silk is staying there until you return home to your toothbrush and dental floss. And if you think that corn silk is bad for most people, try having braces!Cutting the kernels off corn on the cob not only helps this problem, but also makes corn a lot easier to cook with.There is a problem, of course. I'd like to think I have above-average knife skills, and yet I'm completely scared to try and cut kernels off corn on the cob. There's no way to balance the oblong cob, and you have to cut straight down. To add insult to injury, the kernels corn go flying everywhere; it's nearly impossible to cut them in a neat and orderly manner. But worry not: there are some surprisingly easy (and safe!) ways to quickly and neatly cut corn off the cob.Use a Bundt or Angel Food Cake PanI only recently found out about this (big thanks to Saveur's amazing video channel), but it's now one of my favorite food hacks. Place one end of the cob in the middle of the pan, which will keep the corn stable while you cut down. Then, as you cut the ears off of the cob, they'll collect in the pan instead of scattering everywhere.Construct a Makeshift Bundt Cake PanIf you don't have a bundt or angel food cake pan, you can make your own version. Start with a cake pan, pie dish, or shallow bowl. Then add any stable item that can hold one end of the corn, such as a narrow cup or a shot glass. (My personal favorite is a toilet paper cardboard tube, but please be careful if you try this: these tubes are remarkably flimsy, so if you apply too much pressure they will collapse while you're cutting.) Then proceed just as you would with a bundt or angel food cake pan, until you have a bowl of perfectly cut corn.Cut the Corn in HalfThis is the quickest way to get the kernels off of the cob, but you want to avoid it unless you have a nice knife and are comfortable using it. Start by cutting the corn in half, which is harder than it looks: the core of the cob is extremely hard, and the corn will want to roll while you're trying to cut. So above all, be careful!Now that the corn is in half, each piece has a flat side, making it easier and safer to balance the cob while you cut it. And with each piece half the size of a full cob of corn, there's less mess when you cut the ears off.Then again, if you're hell-bent on keeping the corn on the cob, but still want to get rid of the strings of silk, you can always microwave it.Get More Food-Cutting HacksSometimes unflavored dental floss is better at cutting certain foods than your knife-seriously! And if cutting tomatoes befuddles you, be sure to read our indispensable guide on how to do it right. As for mangoes, turns out you need to bring a drinking glass in order to cut them the right way.

Hold the seed securely with pliers. Drill a hole in the seed with a cordless drill with a 1/16-inch drill bit. so this with all your necklace seeds. Drill holes in all your seeds.Measure 32 inches of dental floss with the tape measure, and cut the floss, using scissors. Use a red marker to mark a spot 2 inches from one end of the dental floss. Mark that spot with a red marker. Mark a spot 2 inches from the other end of the dental floss. Wrap a small piece of masking tape around that end.Thread the end of your dental floss through the tiny opening at the top of your self-threading needle, above the eye. Pull the floss through the eye of your needle until you reach the spot marked with masking tape.Thread one seed at a time onto the floss by pushing the needle through the hole you've drilled in the seed. Pull the first seed to the spot marked with the masking tape. Keep adding seeds until you've filled the length of floss between the red mark and masking tape.Remove the masking tape from the end of the floss, and knot the ends of floss together securely. Clip the loose ends of floss close to the knot with scissors to finish your necklace.Drill holes in the center of each seed or at a point that will allow the seed to be threaded so it will lie at the angle of your choosing. Thread all of one kind of seed onto your floss, or alternate seeds of different shapes and sizes. Store pieces of finished jewelry in tightly covered glass jars.Use caution when using a drill. Place seed jewelry in a deep freeze for a couple of weeks, at least once a year, to kill any insects that may infest the seeds. Never eat seeds that you use to make jewelry.

What to Give Up for Lent? Smoking? Cursing? How About ...
What to Give Up for Lent? Smoking? Cursing? How About ...
LONDON - For Lent, many Christians give up indulgences like tobacco, alcohol or sweets, or transgressions like lying and swearing. And for Anglicans, don't forget synthetic fabrics, wet wipes, and those little boxes that hold dental floss.The Church of England has asked people to add a new culprit to the list of ills they forsake for the six weeks of penance that begin on Ash Wednesday: plastics. Specifically, the church wants people to avoid the plastic consumer products and packaging that have become a major environmental problem, polluting oceans and rivers, fouling beaches, killing wildlife and clogging landfills."I think it might well be a first for us, to have an entire Lent program on an environmental issue, but it is very much an integral part of what the church is about," said Ruth Knight, the Church of England's environmental policy officer. In fact, environmental stewardship "to safeguard the integrity of creation" is one of the five "marks of mission" the church lists in describing its purpose.The church's "Lent Plastic Challenge" arrives on a wave of anti-plastic sentiment and legislation in Britain and across Europe, as more people conclude that the first element of the motto "reduce, reuse, recycle" should take precedence. In December, the European Union announced binding waste-reduction targets for member nations, with particular emphasis on plastics.Last month, a ban on plastic microbeads in cosmetic products took effect in Britain, and Prime Minister Theresa May's government committed Britain to a 25-year environmental plan that includes eliminating most plastic waste. Several big cafe and restaurant chains have recently done away with plastic straws, or promised to do so, and the government of Scotland has said it will ban them by the end of next year.[Read how a 9-year-old boy's statistic shaped a debate on straws here.]In Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, stores must charge 5 pence for each single-use shopping bag, whether paper or plastic, and the same charge applies in England for plastic bags at larger retailers. The measure has sharply reduced plastic bag use, and lawmakers say they want to impose charging more widely in England.Last fall, a BBC documentary series on the oceans, Blue Planet II, which dealt extensively with environmental dangers, including from plastics, was the most-viewed program in Britain.The Church of England has created a calendar for a plastics-free Lent, each day bearing either an environmentally-themed Bible verse or a suggestion on how to avoid buying plastics.Along with some of the easier-to-follow suggestions, like buying clothes made of natural fibers or taking reusable bags to the grocery store, are others that might require more effort, like finding dental floss that does not come in a plastic box, or using "a bamboo toothbrush or a toothbrush with recyclable heads.""Yeah, some of them are more difficult than others," Ms. Knight said. "It's definitely not a commandment to do all of them, it's encouragement to do as much as you can."A large part of the world's plastic waste - estimates range from five million to 13 million tons per year - ends up in the oceans. Circulating currents have created immense rotating patches of waste, mostly plastic, in subtropical regions.Wave action and sunlight break floating plastics down in smaller pieces, but some of them are very slow to degrade chemically, and are toxic. Animals eat bits of plastic, with ill effects on them - and further up the food chain, all the way to humans - that are only beginning to be understood.

How to Mark Climbing Ropes
How to Mark Climbing Ropes
A climbing rope is literally a climber's lifeline, one of the few items of a gear system that usually isn't redundant. When you life depends on a single piece of nylon--and certain substances have been shown to degrade nylon--who can blame climbers for being nearly paranoid about what touches their ropes? There are two commonly accepted ways of marking the middle point on a climbing rope: using a specially designed rope marker or marking the middle with dental floss or thread.InstructionsDifficulty: Moderately EasyHold the two ends of the rope together in your right hand. Wrap your left hand around both strands of rope.Pull both strands of rope evenly through your left hand until you reach the middle of the rope.Pinch the rope in one hand, just below the middle of the rope, while you color in a 1- or 2-inch wide portion of the rope sheath, all the way around the circumference of the rope, centered on the middle of the rope. Make sure you use a marker specially designed for marking climbing ropes.Mark the middle with dental floss if you'd rather not use a marker on your rope. Thread a large sewing needle with dental floss. Work the dental floss around the middle of the rope, threading it through the rope's sheath, not directly through the core, until you've created a mark that's large enough to easily spot.Tips & WarningsResourcesArticle Written By Marie MulrooneyMarie Mulrooney has written professionally since 2001.
