Healthcare Social Media is still growing exponentially – Just look at #HIMSS14

Healthcare Social Media is still growing exponentially – Just look at #HIMSS14 | Healthy Avenues | Scoop.it
Have we reached peak growth of healthcare social media? The numbers we are seeing doesn’t seem to indicate so. More and more stakeholders in healthcare wether they are patients, providers or other third parties are still flocking to the social web in greater and greater numbers.Just look at what the healthcare conference #HIMSS14 accomplished this week. The graph below shows the top 15 healthcare conferences by single day tweet volume.We’ve never quite seen anything like the tweet volume we witnessed from #HIMSS14 this Monday. 21,393 tweets in a single day is indeed a new record for all healthcare conferences. But what is interesting about this graph is the rate of growth year over year. Let’s take a closer look at that in the graph below.We’re still comparing the top single day during the conferences. The takeaway here is that the growth of healthcare social media, and in particularly Twitter, within this and many other healthcare conferences is not only at double digits – it’s growing at an exponential rate.

F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future 2013

F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future 2013 | Healthy Avenues | Scoop.it
After three decades of increases, adult obesity rates remained level in every state except for one, Arkansas, in the past year, according to F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America's Future 2013, a report from the Trust for America's Health (TFAH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). The full report is available here. Visit http://www.FasinFat.org/ for interactives, graphs, charts and obesity rates for the states and nation going back decades. Thirteen states now have adult obesity rates above 30 percent, 41 states have rates of at least 25 percent, and every state is above 20 percent, according to the report. In 1980, no state was above 15 percent; in 1991, no state was above 20 percent; in 2000, no state was above 25 percent; in 2007, only Mississippi was above 30 percent.* Since 2005, there has been some evidence that the rate of increase has been slowing. In 2005, every state but one experienced an increase in obesity rates; in 2008, rates increased in 37 states; in 2010, rates increased in 28 states; and in 2011, rates increased in 16 states.*

Loneliest Chair In World: Remembering, Surviving & Being Thankful Daily

Loneliest Chair In World: Remembering, Surviving & Being Thankful Daily | Healthy Avenues | Scoop.it

Looking for another picture I found this one. This is a picture of me in chemo after Martin's Ride To Cure Cancer. For 60 days in the summer of 2010 I "cured" my cancer by riding a bicycle across America.

We rode 3,300 miles from the Duke Cancer Institute, where this picture was taken, to Santa Monica. I knew I was sick again in Colorado where a sizable lymph node showed up under my right arm and then in the crook of my neck.

I'm as sick as any cancer patient needs to ever be here, but was in great shape after riding every day for 60 days. I couldn't keep this "ride to chemo" idea up. After the 3rd round I wasn't riding bicycles anymore (have hardly been on again and chemo ended over a year ago now).

That chair, the chemo chair, may be the loneliest chair in the world. Hooked up to a bleeping machine with just the right poison running through my veins I remember thinking back across our great adventure.

One of the reasons I wanted to ride a bicycle across America was to know how much was there. I needed to know if pressed could I continue or would I fold. There were times when I wanted to fold and talked about folding, but the power of a dream held captive for more than 20 years was so strong and my team was so good I kept turning the crank until there was nothing left but water.

What this picture reminds me to do is BE THANKFUL for all the people who've worked so hard to save my life. Now its my turn to pay that generosity back and pay it forward. Have been working on that and will continue to do so, but in the meantime THANK YOU.

Warning Signs of a Stroke

Warning Signs of a Stroke | Healthy Avenues | Scoop.it

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF A STROKE? When the brain does not get enough blood flow, many different signs and symptoms can occur. The amount and type of symptoms depend on what part of the brain is involved. Some of the common signs of stroke include 

Asymmetry in the face or a droop on one side of the face

Weakness on one side of the body (such as an arm, leg, or both)

Numbness or unusual sensations on one side of the body

Trouble speaking (speech is slurred; cannot repeat a simple phrase)

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I NOTICE WARNING SIGNS? Time is the most important factor if you think you are having a stroke. The faster you can get to a hospital, the better your chances of recovery. Therefore, you should call the paramedics right away if you have any of the above warning signs—do not “wait it out” to see if the symptoms get better on their own. The reason that time is very important is that for some strokes, a medication that dissolves blood clots can be given through the bloodstream as treatment. This medication only works during the first few hours after a stroke. After that it is no longer effective and can even cause harmful side effects. Therefore, it is very important, when possible, to record the exact time that you or someone around you first noticed symptoms and the time that you were last well without symptoms.

Heart Attack Incidence With Shifts to Daylight Savings Time

Heart Attack Incidence With Shifts to Daylight Savings Time | Healthy Avenues | Scoop.it
Modulators of normal bodily functions such as the duration and quality of sleep might transiently influence cardiovascular risk. The transition to daylight savings time (DST) has been associated with a short-term increased incidence of heart attack or acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The present retrospective study examined the incidence of AMIs that presented to Beaumont Hospitals in Michigan the week after DST and after the autumn switch to standard time, October 2006 to April 2012, with specific reference to the AMI type. The study population (n = 935; 59% men) was obtained from the electronic medical records. Overall, the frequency of AMI was similar in the spring and autumn, 463 (49.5%) and 472 (50.5%), respectively. The incidence ratio for the first week after the spring shift was 1.17. After the transition from DST in the autumn, the IR for the same period was lower, but not significantly different, 0.99. Nevertheless, the greatest increase in AMI occurred on the first day (Sunday) after the spring shift to DST (1.71, 95% confidence interval 1.09 to 2.02; p <0.05). Also, a significantly greater incidence was found of non–ST-segment myocardial infarction after the transition to DST in the study group compared with that in the control group (p = 0.022). In conclusion, these data suggest that shifts to and from DST might transiently affect the incidence and type of acute cardiac events, albeit modestly.
