Uncontrolled hypertension is getting worse in the U.S., study finds
"A new warning today about blood pressure here. CBS's Sabrina Coop it up to 100. Million people in our country have high blood pressure, and a new report finds an increased number of Americans. Don't have their blood pressure under control, The American Medical Association, Dr Susan Bailey says. That's concerning. Especially now that we have Corona virus. We know that people with cardiovascular disease are at much higher risk of severe illness and death. If they become ill with covert 19. She urges everyone to have your blood pressure checked. And if it's hye, make sure you get it under control.
Steroids confirmed to cut death risk for very ill COVID patients
"Research shows that anti inflammatory corticosteroid significantly reduced the likelihood of death in severely ill covid nineteen patients in multiple studies involving seventeen hundred patients. Using steroids reduced deaths by about a third according to an analysis published in the Journal of the American Medical Association today the results are raising hopes that cheap widely available drugs can be used to treat severe cases of covid
Steroids confirmed to cut death risk for very ill COVID patients
"New studies confirm multiple types of steroids improve survival for severely ill covert 19 patients. It's an analysis of results from seven studies. They found the cheap drugs reduce the risk of death in the first month by about a third compared to placebo, our usual care alone in those seriously ill people who needed extra oxygen. Work led by the World Health Organization. It was published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Turbulent reality collides with GOP convention.
"Turbulent reality is clashing with these smooth steady image Republicans are attempting to paint of President Donald, trump and his leadership on the third night of the GOP convention with a potentially catastrophic hurricane bearing down on the Gulf coast wildfires, ravaging huge areas of California protests growing in Wisconsin after the shooting of a black man by police still raging corona virus pandemic, killing more than a thousand Americans a day with no apparent federal leadership adding still another controversial element the NBA postponed three playoff games after the Milwaukee, bucks refused to take the court for their game following the shooting of Twenty Nine Year Old Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin That was a few hours before vice president. Mike Pence was to speak from Baltimore's Fort Mchenry where in eighteen fourteen battle inspired the national anthem. Trump has strongly criticized athletes who neil rather than stand during the anthem in protest of racial injustice. The historical convergence of health economic environmental and social emergencies is only increasing the pressure on trump as he looks to reshape the contours of his lagging campaign against former vice president Joe Biden with Election Day just ten weeks off and early voting beginning much sooner. The GOP's convention response to those growing challenges have been uneven. The opening nights featured virtually no reference to the hurricane or wildfires covid nineteen was referred to as the China virus as xenophobic trope for a worldwide pandemic. The lineup is included speakers who have been at odds with the black lives matter movement including ace, Luis couple who brandished guns and the Kentucky Attorney General who has not yet filed charges in the death of a woman killed by police. Organizers on Tuesday had pulled another featured speaker, Angel Mom Marianne Mendoza after she directed her twists followers to a series of anti-semitic conspiratorial messages hours before her prerecorded segment was to add convention speakers also reinforcing trump's long order message warning electing Biden would lead to violence in American cities spilling into the suburbs, a message with racist tones despite the reality of these protests happening right now during trump's first term and much of the criticism from demonstrators levied at the sitting President himself at times the RNC appear to be presenting a parallel universe that few people inhabit but for those making the speeches, an idealistic patriotic habitat where the people didn't complain about their lot because they were proud Americans. Most significant all over the three nights of speeches with a literal falsehoods about the Biden campaign rather than run on their own platform. The Republicans have sought to demolish the policies of the left with propaganda, rewriting them to suit their own agenda. US health officials sparked criticism and confusion about hosting new guidelines on corona virus testing from the White House task force that run counter to what scientists say is necessary to control the pandemic. The new guidance says it's not necessary for people who have been in close contact with infected people, but don't feel sick to get tested. It was posted earlier this week on the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC previously had advised local health departments to test people who have been within six feet of an infected person for more than fifteen minutes across the country. Public Health experts called the change bizarre. They noted that testing contacts of infected people is a core element of public health efforts to keep outbreaks in check, and it's a large percentage of infected people. The CDC has said as many as forty percent exhibit no symptoms federal officials said the new recommendation was issued by consensus of the White House virus topic force. However Dr Anthony found she the country's top infectious disease expert, and perhaps the best known task force member said, he wasn't part of the discussion that green lit the change suggesting it may have come from the President himself the American Medical Association in a statement called the change a recipe for community spread the Association of American Medical Colleges called it a step backward in fighting the pandemic. Restricting testing could be self defeating because it could skew the numbers and create a perception that rates of infection are Haya. Another explanation for the change is that Donald Trump simply wants to see case counts drop and discouraging more people from getting tested is one way to do it with the general election two months away and concern that a high number of infections might affect his chances of reelection.
CDC chief Dr. Redfield says coronavirus deaths could start to fall next week
"The head of the CDC is optimistic the nation's turning the corner on the latest surge in the Corona virus, Dr Robert Redfield tells the Journal of the American Medical Association. Mitigation efforts are showing some results. You're going to start seeing the desperate really started to drop in again. You know, we got down under 500 actually got close to 50. We won. I think we're going to start to see the climate. More towns across the country now
Coronavirus More Contagious Among Children? Study Warns Kids ‘Silently Spreading’ COVID-19
"A new study warns that despite earlier claims kids under five may be important drivers of the covid nineteen virus spreading the findings which were also reported in the Journal of the American. Medical Association found that young children with covid nineteen had more of the viruses genetic material in the noses and throats than older children and adults Monje the study any looked at vowed. Genetic material known as Aaron a rather than the infectious virus itself. But researchers say other studies have already shown that more virus can be grown in the lab. When samples from kids with high are levels used the authors say the behavior of young kids and they close contact in schools and childcare settings raise concerns for the virus spreading as public health restrictions raised.
The Midwifery Model of Care with Sarah Stetina, CNM
"I would love to dive into. The training and education. So I know that there's different kinds of midwives but in order to practice in Illinois, you have to be CNN correct yes. Currently certified nurse Midwives at the only legal provider in Illinois but there's more than just two midwife types and that's kind of what makes midwifery kind of confusing or there's a lot of misconceptions about midwifery because there's so many different entries. So the first obviously as nurse Midwifery, that's what I am, and it made the most sense for me to choose nurse Midwifery because like I said I didn't learn about midwifery until was already in nursing school. So it made sense to go on and get my master's degree and specialize in midwifery, and so that row is a master's degree. It can also be a doctorate degree and it's similar to a nurse Practitioner which also masters program but you you have the same education to a certain point and then they branch off until your specialty. So you could be a needle natal nurse practitioner. You could be acute care nurse, practitioner, family nurse Practitioner. Nurse unnecess- or a nurse midwife. All of those things are kind of in the same level. Just our specialty that that varies. And so that was my education. was going to finish my masters degree doing clinicals and didactic and. Doing births and all being clinic and office visits and learning all the skills, and then you have to sit for a national. Certifying exam. And Pass that to become certified and then you have to apply for licensure in your state. So there are other routes there's also certified midwives which are Also. Take US certifying national exam. And may go through an accredited program, but they're not nurses I and it's not a masters of nursing degree at summit where free degree that isn't legal in every state. There's certain states that allow certified midwives and then the third is the certified professional midwife, which is also certified by a national exam and there are midwifery programs for CPM's or certified professional midwives. But they're not recognized every state. I, think it's up to like thirty two states now that recognized CPM's most of them work. In out of hospital setting wall nurse midwives typically work in hospital settings, but it can vary depending on the state. and certified professional midwives spent a lot of time in an apprenticeship without of hospital midway experienced midwives learning that in addition to their. Schooling. So very comparable it's just the model pathway that you want to enter midwifery. And then there's traditional midwives which maybe don't take a certifying exam don't. Have a license and have learned midwifery from being passed down through generations, and that's how midwife midwifery kind of started in the United States. And there's a lot of wisdom to be gained from traditional midwives but. The country doesn't usually recognize them as. Legal providers. Yeah do would you say that there is a lot of misconceptions around education as a midwife Oh yeah. I think a lot of people think you don't know what you're doing. Oh Yeah. I, think a lot of people don't realize they compare us with Dulas. People ask me all the time oh you deliver babies no. When I tell them I'm like, oh so like a Dula and I'm like well, no. And they're you know it's so interesting. Once, I learned everything about midway free. You just assume that everyone else is going to figure it out to which obviously is not the keys I was in nursing school didn't know what Wise Ray but that campaign in the nineteen hundreds that kind of. Discredited midwives which was led by the. Physicians and Medical Association to get people to him birth in a hospital. The kind of told the story that midwives were dangerous and an educated and not safe, and that is a really successful campaign because it is still prevalent in in the way that people think about midwives today and so I'd say whether you're CPM Siham, 'em or a CNN. Or choosing those providers most of them are very very educated and have a lot of knowledge and our experts at normal physiological birth. and. Midwives nurse midwives. In particular can we can prescribe we can order imaging, we can do lab work, we can manage normal guy any staff so whether that's a PAP smear. Cycles birth control throughout the life span. And I don't think people realize that we don't just do pregnancy and birth you can come see me for anything that you'd go see an ob for for the most part, and if it's out of my scope, I'm going to refer you appropriately in in there are levels of of scope of practice but. Yet for most. People you can see a midwife for pretty much everything related to reproductive health, right which leads us to another misconception. Because honestly I didn't really know that before. My introduction midwives was my sister when she was pregnant with her oldest who's twelve now. She didn't plan on using a midwife. She had some crazy thing happen. With her insurance, dropped her because her doctor mixed up her medical records and then they went take her and she got pregnant. No insurance started looking at alternative methods and found this midwife. And ended up doing an at home birth in that was my first. Experience seeing a birth and just fell in love with that and she ended up having all four of her kids at home. And I also dislike fell in love with her midwife she's she was doctrine Venezuela she studied birth the Amazon she came to the states started this practice and very wise. Gosh, she's so amazing and And so it's cool because then became a delay gotta work with her with some other berths to. But before that. Also, I. Yeah. You just you picture a midwife it's a home birth. It's You know. And that's all they do is birthing right and obviously now that I know it's like. I'm going to. Be Used mid wife's for the rest of my life. I'm like in menopause you know what I mean. I can still go to them not just when I'm having a baby you can have that relationship based care that really holistic approach in every aspect of your healthcare pretty much, and we're trained as a nurse midwives trained in primary care as well. So basic primary care, your annual exams, even just a asthma management simple things we are very capable and entering. To to manage as well and for for the the myth that midwives only do home birth that's really prevalent. I. Tell people a midwife and they immediately assume that I'm delivering babies at home which there's nothing wrong with that obviously uses your head a wonderful home breath but you can buy midwives in literally every setting whether it's home birth centers, hospitals clinics. Federally, Qualified Health Centers Academia doing research. You know we're we're everywhere that a physician might be
The Philippines Becomes Coronavirus Hot Spot In Southeast Asia
"Philippines has over taken in Tunisia as Southeast Asia's Corona virus hot spot even though Indonesia has twice as many people. The Philippines now has more than 136,000 confirmed cases of covert 19 and critics say no coherent strategy for defeating the virus, Michael Sullivan reports. Like other countries in the region, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam, For example, the Philippines recorded its first covert case back in January. Those neighbors acted swiftly. They started locking down when they had a few 100 cases and the timeliness of the response was key to the success of Vietnam, Korea and Taiwan University of the Philippines. Covert researcher Ranjeet Rai. They decided to do something significant when they only had relatively few cases, and they were successful with racing and with the isolation very different from the Philippines, where we already had a case in January, and we decided not to do anything about it until March, and it wasn't just the Philippines lock down. That was late health workers say, Dr Tony Luchon. Is a former advisor to the government's covert task force. They started Lee with the AH building up of the health system capacities in terms of testing isolation. And quantum tracing. We wasted so much time about two months instead of trying to build up our infrastructure's adequate testing and contact tracing are still a huge problem, but the lock down that went into effect in March 1 of the longest and most severe in Southeast Asia. Did help reduce the number of new cases until it was lifted in June, when cases started to skyrocket. Over the weekend, the country's medical front liners issued an urgent virtual plea to President Rodrigo did to reimpose the lock down to allow them to regroup. Medical Association president Dr Jose Santiago Jr. Our health care system has bean overlong our head workers are burned out would seemingly endless number of patients trooping to our hospitals for emergency care and ambition. We're waging a losing battle against carbon 19 President Duterte. His initial response was less than empathetic, accusing the health workers of inciting a revolution against his government. You will give me the free ticket. The state's a counterrevolution. How I wish you would do it. The next day, he retreated and ordered a new 15 day locked down. But it's not a stringent is the first public transportation has been stopped. But businesses and retail outlets Khun operated half capacity in an effort to both halt the spread of the virus and allow some economic activity in the country that's now slipped into recession. But critics say this 15 day locked down light won't stop the spread of the virus. If it goes only 15 days, it will start increasing again. And the problem is that our health Care is now a full capacity. We have two cities in Metro Manila, which are at 100% occupancy. So that's a real problem. That's University of the Philippines. Professor Ghetto divvied who's been modelling the spread of the virus, along with his colleague, grungy dry. If we don't manage this this month, we don't take the opportunity to extend the music. You That small window opening lives and livelihoods would suffer at the disruption will become greater and my sense if we prematurely opened, it could be catastrophic for us.

RIP Buddy: The first dog to test positive for the coronavirus in the U.S. has died
"He was old. He had health problems, and now he has died, apparently of covert 19. But what really makes Buddy unusual is he's a dog. And that makes Buddy the German shepherd one for the medical history books. The first dog dog known known to to have have died died from from the the Corona Corona virus virus infection infection that that apparently apparently Buddy Buddy picked picked up up from from its its owner owner in in the the New New York York area. area. It's It's going going to to go go to to a a dog dog park. park. Let's Let's say say or or you're you're gonna walk your dog where lots of other dogs to walk. Don't let your dog jump upon somebody or let strange people come up and Petra dog, Dr John how is president of the American Veterinary Medical Association? Aviation, maintaining the social distancing that you would with people. Probably not let him go nose to nose with the other dogs there have now been millions have reported covert cases involving infected humans around the world, and not one apparently infected by a pet.

Coronavirus-infected German shepherd, first dog to test positive for COVID-19 in US, dies
"Buddy, the German shepherd will go down in the medical history books as the first dog to apparently die from Cove it 19. But he was getting on in years and, like people with risk factors did have some other medical issues. But then came the Corona virus, which Buddy apparently caught from its owner makes it much worse of you. Conditions, and he may have had lymphoma on. Of course, when you have abnormal immune system, it's gonna really decrease your chances for getting over anything. Dr. John how is President of the American Veterinary Medical Association? Nobody is the 1st 1 that actually got sick enough to die. But being here I probably that cancer spread to his liver and spleen are never where else. There's just no way to survive that there have been no known cases anywhere in the world of humans getting covert 19 from their dogs or from any other pet for that matter,
School closures in spring were linked to reductions in Covid-19 new cases
"Had closed schools early in the pandemic saw the largest reduction of new cases from covert 19 barbeque, Husak explains. School closures that swept several U. S. States from March to May appears to have made a difference in Corona virus case and death counts, according to researchers from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association says thie school closures may have been associated with 1.37 million fewer cases of Cove in 19 over a 26 day period. And 40,600 fewer deaths over 16 day period is not clear, however, what role Children play in spreading the virus to adults. And barbecue sack in
CDC urges all Americans to wear masks to combat spread of COVID-19
"CDC says time is now for people to wear masks for Americans to wear masks. Speaking on a webinar with the Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr Robert Redfield said face coverings could turn the tide. In the war against the virus. I really do believe if the American public all embrace masking now and we really did it, You know, rigorously. Maybe more like the German citizens were really the Germans say everyone isolated. Think they got a lot of cooperation? You know when we probably isolated we probably had less than half the American public. Do it? I think if we could get everybody to wear a mask right now, I really do. Think of X 468 weeks we could bring this epidemic under control. Dodge Read feels his masks are public health issue, not a political issue also warned that this fall and winter probably will be one of the most difficult times we've ever experienced in American public health
Teachers' union leader on the need to reopen schools safely
"Medical association that the White House has cited in its push to reopen schools is responding to President Trump's threats to cut federal funding of schools Don't open this fall. In a joint statement with national education unions and the superintendent's group, the American Academy of Pediatrics said today that decisions on reopening should be made by health experts and local leaders, not the White House. Groups also wrote that withholding funding from schools that do not open in person full time would be misguided and could threaten the health of students and teachers. But Trump tweeted his threat again today, saying Virtual learning has been in his word, terrible.

"Opportunity of being able to do that, and I do like this idea of being able to rent the entire thing out for just $50 I see the ace I'm not into But all these things that are nines. Now these nines would be right up my alley, okay, coming in at number with the nine rating of the most high risk of activities, according to the Texas Medical Association. Because of the extreme difficulty of being able to maintain social distancing and, ah, the risk factors that are associated with it Attending. Ah large music concert. I'm they're going to a sports stadium. I'm their attending a religious service with 500 or more worshipers there and going to a bar. I've been there. Right after going to the church service with 500 more workers like you notice. I said, I'm there. I'm there. I'm there. I've been there. That was that was a while ago. You know, it's not that I am of these days with the other words I'd be likely to do you know so But I get it that they all seem to be the high risk which I guess is why they shut down the bars in the county for this one week anyway, So it all makes sense. It all makes sense. So I don't know. I think these are all things people need to think about or at least take into consideration when they're making decisions. About what they're going to do. The realities are, however, I think people are going to do what they do, and it doesn't matter what the risk our people are going to do what they're going to do. I think there are people out there that are doing. I think some people are out there who are Clamping down a little too tight. And thinking that something is more dangerous. Then what thes medical experts. These doctors like the Texas Medical Association, or saying to the level of dangerous like grocery shopping is an example. You have a lot of people who are so concerned about grocery shopping. They're ordering the groceries to be delivered to them because they're concerned about getting it And it's listed as a very low risk activity coming in at a three rating on a scale of 1 to 9. And so I think there are some examples of people who are just more concerned and more apprehensive than they need to be. Okay, But what's wrong with getting groceries delivered or there's not anything wrong with having that done. But I just think if if you wanna have it done because you just like having it done one, then great. But if you're having it done because you're really concerned about Covert 19 considering how low the risk Is on that particular activity where you may be willing to do other things that may be at greater risk. He's just need to put it all into perspective and realize you're allowed to relax. I don't know. Maybe catch your breath. Breathe a little bit, but the anxiety go just a little bit on some of these things. I mean, I don't know what you said. Let your guard down. That's when stuff happens to 55. Let's get traffic.
Dog in Georgia tests positive for virus that causes COVID-19
"And Georgia has been put down after testing positive for the virus. The animal believed to be the second canine case of covert 19 in the U. S.

He says there's no evidence that animals are transmitting the disease to people.
More states halt reopenings as COVID-19 cases surge
"When the first corona virus cases appeared in Chicago back in January they bore the same genetic signatures as a germ that emerged in China weeks before. But HIS EGON Oser an infectious disease specialist at northwestern examined the genetic structure of virus samples from local patients. He noticed something different. A change in the virus was appearing again and again this mutation associated with the outbreaks in Europe and new. York City eventually took over Chicago by May. It was found ninety five percent of all the genomes that he sequenced. At a glance, the mutation seem trivial about thirteen hundred amino acids, service building blocks for a protein on the surface of the virus in the mutant virus, the genetic instructions for just one of those amino acids number six fourteen switched in the new variant from a D. which is shorthand for. Asset to a G, which is short for Lycene. But the location of that mutation was significant because the switch occurred in the part of the genome that codes for the all important spike protein. The spike protein is the protruding structure that gives the corona virus. It's crown like profile, which also gives its name the crown virus, and allows it to enter human cells the way a burglar picks lock. And Its ubiquity at this point is undeniable of the approximately fifty thousand genomes of the virus that researchers worldwide have uploaded into a shared database about seventy percent carry the new mutation, which is officially designated as D, Six fourteen g, but known more familiarly to the scientists on the front lines of this fight by one letter. G. G. Hasn't just dominated the outbreak in Chicago. It has taken over the world and now scientists are racing to figure out what it means. And how to stop it to of Our Star Science Writers Sarah Kaplan Join. Reported at least four lab experiments suggest that this mutation makes the virus significantly more infectious, although none of that work has yet been pure reviewed, another unpublished study led by federal scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory asserts that patients with the g variant actually have more virus in their bodies, making them more likely to spread it to others. The mutation does not. Does Not appear to make people sicker, but a growing number of scientists worry that it is making the virus more contagious. The scramble to unravel this mutation mystery embodies the challenges of science during the coronavirus pandemic with millions of people infected in thousands dying every day around the world, researchers strike a high stakes balance between getting information out quickly. And making sure that is right. The burglary analogy is when I found very helpful, because it really helps conceptualize what this virus is doing to our bodies, Joel likes to say that the coronavirus can be thought of as an extremely destructive burglar, unable to live or reproduce on its own. It breaks into human cells in coops, biological machinery to make thousands of copies of itself that leaves a trail of damaged tissue and triggers an immune system response that for some people for many people can be fatal, the so-called side kind store. This replication process is messy, even though it has a proofreading mechanism for copying its own genome, the coronavirus frequently makes mistakes. Those are the mutations. The vast majority of mutations have no effect at all on the behavior of the virus. But? Few genetic mutations could be more significant than the ones that affect the spike protein. That is the viruses lock pick the most powerful tool against us. The protein attached to a receptor on respiratory cells, called as to which opens the cell and let's the virus slip inside. The more effective despite protein, the more easily the virus can break into the bodies of its hosts, even when the original variant of the virus emerged in Wuhan China. It was obvious that the spike protein was already quite effective. But, it could have been even better. The spike protein for the coronavirus has two parts that don't always hold together well when you look at it under a microscope in the version of the virus that rose in China the outer part, which the virus needs to attach to a human receptor, frequently broke off equipped with this faulty lock pick. The virus had a harder time invading Ho cells. Studying both variations of the gene, using a proxy virus, in a Petri dish of human cells heireann show a virologist at scripts. Research found that viruses with the g variant had more spike proteins in the outer parts of those proteins were less likely to break off. In that research. The virus was ten times more infectious with that mutation. The good news is this. The mutation does not seem to lead to worse outcomes for patients, nor does it alter the viruses response to antibodies from patients who had the D variant? Suggesting again? This is great news that vaccines being developed based on the original version of the virus will be effective against the war infectious European strain. Identifying, emerging mutations allows researchers to track their spread, knowing what genes affect how the virus transmits enables public health officials to tailor their efforts to contain it wants therapeutics vaccines are distributed on a large scale. Having a baseline understanding of the genome will help pinpoint when drug-resistance inevitably starts to evolve. None of this unfortunately is a magic bullet, but experts say that understanding how the virus works will help respond better. Still, it's a race against time. And Right now. The virus is winning. And, that's the big idea. Here are three other headlines that should be on your radar. This Tuesday number one. US deaths are approaching one, hundred, twenty, five thousand. We expect to pass that number today and the total number of confirmed cases, here's top two and a half million amid worsening outbreaks in Florida, Texas and Arizona that are straining hospital capacity to the Limit Jacksonville, the largest city in Florida and the host to the Republican National Convention in late. August announced that masks will now be mandatory in public and indoor locations. Vice President Pence plans to go ahead with plan travel this week to Florida and Arizona, even though cases are spiking, but Arizona Saul another record, high and hospitalizations days after trump visited the state for a raucous indoor rally where almost no one more mask. Florida's Rolling Seven Day. Average has risen by one hundred percent since week ago. Trump's former FDA commissioner Scott gottlieb warned last night. Night that the surging number of cases could result in nearly half our country infected with the virus by the end of the year and overall deaths are likely to return to more than one thousand per day. He predicts in fact, the number two at the CDC, told the Journal of the American Medical Association yesterday that the US. has quote way too much virus to be. Be Able to contain it anymore and shoe cat said that we're no longer in a position like New Zealand or Singapore. South Korea, where new case can be rapidly identified, and all the context traced and people are isolated or sick and people who are exposed or quarantined, and that's how you keep things under control. She said instead. We have way too much virus across the country. Country for that right now. She described herself as very discouraged and added. This is really the beginning I think there was a lot of wishful thinking around the country that hey, it's summer. Everything's GonNa be fine, but she added that she seemed quote a lot of worrisome factors over the last week or so and added quote. We are not even beginning to be over this. And, we're seeing that on the front lines. Los Angeles County health officials have issued a dire warning in the last twelve hours that conditions are rapidly deteriorating in the nation's most populous county as the virus spreads quickly, officials are warning that both public and private hospitals in the city of angels may soon be overwhelmed leading to triage. One factor that's alarming leaders in southern California. Is that corona virus patients are crossing the US Mexico border to seek medical care. Now, a lot of Americans seeking treatment. But the head of California's Emergency Medical Services Authority describes the stream of patients crossing the border back and forth as quote pouring gasoline on the fire. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey pushed back his plans to reopen public schools and has banned gatherings of more than fifty people. He also has closed down bars, nightclubs, movie, theaters and water parks. All of which he recently reopened as we discussed last week warning residents that we can no longer be under any illusion that the viruses going away on its own other hard hit states, including Tennessee and Georgia have put in place new stay at home. Orders extended them. There are so many unsettling stories just popping up across the country that it's hard to keep up more than two hundred people in West.

Poor birth outcomes associated with climate change
"There's growing evidence that climate change is affecting birth outcomes particularly in communities of color. A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association analyzed thirty two million births in the US, it found heat and air. Pollution were risk factors in eighty four percent. Rupa Bass who is the chief of air and climate epidemiology at the California. EPA, and was a CO author on the Study High Rupa welcome to climate cast. Hi, thank you for the invitation us. How temperatures and air quality impact our health, what are you learning about the impacts for women and people of Color. Well so far we have studied air pollution in terms of fine particulate matter and heat in California and what we're finding is that there are associations between preterm delivery, stillbirth and a term low-birth-weight. You know that those pregnancy outcomes are actually much worse for people of Color Let's talk about that a little bit. How are birth affected by heat and air pollution for air pollution? It's mostly inflammation and what happens is that there are systemic inflammation, and that just means that pollutants could affect the. As well as the Placenta and there's also some evidence for smaller particles going from the blood to the brain for heat. It's harder to regulate or control body temperature a for pregnant women. What happens is that women are able to sweat, and then that causes dehydration dehydration than releases. In the body which induces labor and that can happen prematurely. Bodies Getting all the signals at by the heat exposure Rupa here in Minnesota North Minneapolis is one of our communities at lies just downstream from downtown Minneapolis in the prevailing southerly winds. We have in summer, so that means air pollution like fine particles blow into these communities more frequently I'm curious as that common pattern that you see and other cities. Yes it's not just even the air pollution that's flowing into those areas, actually air, pollution, or ready in those areas. We know that large wildfires in the west have tripled since nineteen seventy, and were even seeing a measurable increase in that wildfire smoke coming into Minnesota. How is that important to health outcomes? The difference between these wildfires is that they're not jerry large wildfires, but also affected very densely populated counties in California and so we're able to look at health impacts at the main finding. Is that particular matter is Berry high during these times sometimes the peaks reach levels that we would see in China or elsewhere. Those levels actually are associated with higher respiratory health effects. We've also looked at cardiovascular disease. Mental Health and to look at birth outcomes in the future, looking ahead with the best solutions by publishing this review in Jama article were really hoping to get the message. That heat is linked with These adverse pregnancy outcomes to the medical community were also hoping that on a larger scale pregnant women are included in heat advisories right now in the US. It's been really more a focus on elderly, and maybe some underlying diseases
Medical Leadership and Conflicts of Interest
"This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion, despite years of concern over conflicts of interest in medicine, substantial evidence exists that financial ties between health professionals and drug companies impact medical decisions, patient, care, medical research, government, policies and medical education. It's a funny thing that studies funded by drug companies or device manufacturers almost always show more favorable outcomes for the company's product than for the competitor. Perhaps this is just a coincidence, but what about data that shows that educational seminars funded by drug companies results in increased prescribing for that company's product, even when objective data shows no benefit for their drug another coincidence. and. It's an odd occurrence that when expert committees developing practice guidelines contain members who have a financial relationship with a drug company, the guidelines favor policies or practices that benefit the drug company, professional medical organizations with names like the American Society of this or that or the American College of so-and-so play large advisory roles in healthcare. We know that in the US. About twenty percent of healthcare is unnecessary. It doesn't benefit the patient. Although doctors and healthcare systems grow richer by offering these inappropriate services, will professional groups advise government, insurance, companies and other doctors on. On the best way to treat certain conditions, their job is not to maximize markets for companies, but to drive toward best practice based on available evidence, these scholarly professional groups need to be objective and conflict-free. For example they cannot accept money from the makers of synthetic hip, and then advise government or health insurers on the use of synthetic hips. The recent study from the B. M. J. looked at funding received from three hundred and twenty eight medical leaders, serving on ten professional medical associations organizations like the American College of Cardiology or the American psychiatric association. It turns out that seventy two percent of the three hundred and twenty eight leaders had financial ties to industry. Some of the financial ties were several hundred dollars, but others were several hundred thousand dollars. These conflicts of interest are unacceptable, and they must stop. A person cannot serve in leadership without independence and integrity, no leader, serving an any medical advisory or leadership group should be allowed to have any conflict of interest that means receiving gifts, grants, lab, construction, costs, new lab, equipment or Actions, either that or we need to get rid of these professional societies as advisory groups and create new independent groups that we can trust this.

M. magazine dog stir and vetted and what's crazy is I'm just naming the things that you did last week wait till I get for the rest of the month it's just insane the podcast listeners please join me in welcoming doctor Natalie marks to the show welcome doctor marks well thank you and I think that was the nicest welcome I've ever received hello it's all well deserved now I help me out with the correct pronunciation the name of your hospital what's in your hospital the lan animal blind animal house I just want to make sure it wasn't a hard you like bloom in all its Blom yes it's like plum with the be that's beautiful I like how you put that I'm naturally differential so I want to call you doctor marks the can I call you doctor Natalie whatever you'd like all right all right well listen I'm excited speak to you because I know when people hear the word hack they're probably thinking hack isn't that a way that you kind of undermined somebody's computer but what we're really talking about or just common pleas trials and tribulations that people have with their pets listen I mean I know people that never talk about in public because they think everyone goes through their sin I don't really need to talk about them publicly and it might be a little embarrassing do you find that despite being so heavily involved in veterinary medicine and really hard core signs that you still get very basic questions about tax well I do and I respect a client who's interested in that because I am also a mom to wonderful dog named Samantha and I'm a working parent so as you mentioned at the start of your show here efficiency is he so many of us are working parents to humans and furry family members and anywhere with that we can make the most of our time and do the best for our family course we want that information that's incredible how old is Samantha what breed is she she's for she's that we think sort of a a small terrier mix that we rescued from Costa kago which is a large no kill shelter here and she was found sort of a running straight and pregnant she had two puppies that were fostered and we ended up taking her into our family and she has been the love of our life she is just absolutely amazing and has completely solidified in my mind the power of the human animal bond I can imagine that running and pregnant that's never a good combination no no no all right and when did you welcome her into your house well your whole bluster pad not too long ago she came to us in August our lead such a heart warming story you know listen we jump right off the deep end and we don't even get a chance to do one of my favorite segments which is called set the scene and we always do this right we always set the scene here in this is a portion of the show where we get to you get the paid a very vivid image for us of kind of where you grew up what the environment was like and what your early interactions with packs were at that point for some people they didn't have animal interactions a pattern or actions until later in adult life and then others and from a very early age they were introduced to pass how was it for you I grew up in a small town in northwest Illinois called sterling and we've yeah sort of a blue collar kind of working town with a lot of industry but quite small and always had a family dog orifice but actually I started with a very good friend of mine working on his horse ranch so my introduction to animals at a very young age was more from the large animal side and fell in love with that lifestyle and I think I'm probably one of the few veterinarians today that started from day one wanting to be a that and never looks back I think a lot of veterinarians in the recent classes have maybe either started in different career field or maybe you learned as they went that this was sort of the career path they wanted to go but I am sort of that James Herriot veterinarian that this is the only thing I've ever wanted to do and I've found my passion and continue to follow it every day wow you never look back you know you can we do have that veterinarians in general do have that stereotype where the people say what what would you have wanted to do and they say oh I never wanted to do anything else but the truth is sometimes I think people are forced to that answer you are very truly you never comes Sittard any other profession besides veterinary medicine I didn't know by and looking back that probably wasn't very smart because they didn't have a back up plan but thankfully everything has our discipline tastic career and every day is different and there's always wonderful opportunities and the best part about it is I think a lot of people think veterinarians go into this field just because they love animals but you know small animal practitioners like myself we really have to go we go into this field because we love people too as we we deal with people of course even more so than the animals that we love and it's great to seeking care of the whole family I love that concept of making sure you realize that eighty sounds absolutely basic to say this but that you are going to have to interact with people I I think that there are occasions where people have this appropriate affection towards the animal but they also forget that you through the Pat you're also going to have to talk to the pet parents and sometimes that can be a little bit challenging for some people to realize that just as much time is spent with the pet as with the pet parents we are very curious though why you pick Chicago considering the little wooden terms that you have we all understand that you love veterinary medicine but my goodness Chicago hi well how did you get there and are you in are you in a winter cold right now I was just a little we were spring would come sooner but it hasn't you know I have family a lot of family in the area my husband is from this area so we treasure our time with our extended family and I really love my practice and love what we and the food is wonderful the lake is wonderful in summer my kids have all their friends here you know its it's a love hate relationship with our winters but we do loving living downtown yeah I think it's worth it just for the deep dish pizza so I get it I guess okay so let's be clear about something everybody's thinking right now all right you know you've these parts in Chicago how are they able to survive how do you help people navigate these brutal winters and some of the sweltering summers do you have any cool Pentax.
