Teddy the Guardian tracks the vital signs of kids in hospitals

Teddy the Guardian tracks the vital signs of kids in hospitals | CE | Scoop.it
A cute teddy ear gets kids to take their own vitals like heart rate, oxygen saturation, temperature, and stress levels.

Via Therese Torris
Yuliya Bateyko's insight:

Hospitals can be scary propositions for kids. But Teddy the Guardian can make the trip easier. To get the child to squeeze the palm of Teddy the Guardian, caregivers just tell them they will feel better if they squeeze the paw. That, by itself, helps reduuce a child’s stress. Teddy can measure a child’s health under more normal conditions, rather than heightened stress conditions. These teddy's are very helpful for kids.

Via AskForEducation
Yuliya Bateyko's insight:

This a very interesting article because I always thought that there's more men doing nursing than women but as it turns out men account for 50% of the population, only about 7.9% of registered nurses in the U.S. are male. But those numbers are beginning to rise as nursing schools around the country keep reaching out to recruit more male students into their programs 

more...
Antwain Harps's curator insight, March 17, 2014 8:20 PM

The nursing profession is trying to get rid of the old misconception about being a male nurse. “Nursing school deans, faculty and male nursing leasers are developing innovative, stereotype-busting recruitment strategies in the hopes of eventually making the number of men in nursing more comparable to the number of women who are now sizeable presences in traditionally male fields like medicine and law,” says Debra Williams. In earlier generations, men that decided to go to nursing school had obstacles to cross, like gender discrimination from female instructors and students, couldn’t have access to clinical training in areas like obstetrics and gynecology, and lack of family and friends who perceive nursing as a women career. In order to break the barriers that men face when trying to become a nurse, nursing schools should try making efforts to provide them with equal opportunities given to other students in the program. Female student nurses should treat male student nurses no differently than they would with anybody else. Friends and family members should try to be more supportive and not be judgmental when they make the decision about their career choice.

In 1980's the population of home-school was 0.5% and right now home-school growth is up to 7 percent a year. At home students can work at their own speed they don't have to be rushed or wait. The most important reason why kids have home-school is because  their parents don't want their kids to get involved with drugs, safety issues and peer pressure.

Knox plan: Put health clinics in schools
Philly.com
More than 1,900 health centers are in schools around the country, according to the nonprofit School-Based Health Alliance. Many are primary care providers and bill at a higher rate.

Via eMedToday
Yuliya Bateyko's insight:

Tom Knox has a proposal to put health clinics in schools. I think it's a great idea because the parents wouldn't have to leave their work to take their kids to the doctor, the doctors will be right there in school. The other good thing is that Knox is betting that the treatment is far cheaper at a walk-in clinic than an emergency room.

more...
eMedToday's curator insight, July 26, 2013 8:00 PM

Summary

 

Knox envisions that each of the more than 290 district and charter schools would house a walk-in clinic staffed by a nurse-practitioner or physician assistant, who would bill the child's insurance provider $60 per visit. Each clinic also would be staffed by one of the remaining 194 traditional school nurses or by a lower-paid health technician.

 

More than 1,900 health centers are in schools around the country, according to the nonprofit School-Based Health Alliance. Many are primary care providers and bill at a higher rate.

 

However a better solution would be to deploy a new technology called Health Spot which is a 40 sq foot cubicle using telemedicne, cheaper and better health service
