The Summit Healthcare Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center received the Center of Distinction Award!

 

Summit Healthcare is home to a specialized Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center. The advanced medical center houses two hyperbaric chambers and is the only rural hospital in northeastern Arizona to offer this service. This addition is part of our goal to provide a complete system of medical and professional care to our patients.

Summit Healthcare’s Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center is an outpatient, hospital-based program. The medical center is designed to complement the services offered by patients’ primary care physicians–in fact; we should think of it an extension of a physician’s practice. Patients receive outstanding, professional, and courteous attention in a timely fashion, and are returned to the referring physician once the healing is satisfactory. The program operates by appointment and requires a referral from the primary care physician.

Recorded at the Pediatric Center on Cub Lake Rd. behind Papa Johns.

In this episode Birdman chats with Dr. Jones with Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center about Bronchiolitis, RSV, and Flu in young children. Winter is the busiest season for pediatrics due to viral infections.

 

Video @ https://youtu.be/_D1a4Tc8rmg

 

RSV typically occurs during this time of the year; November to May.

RSV is a very contagious virus that affects the respiratory tract, usually in children under three. It can be more dangerous for children 0-3 years of age. When adults and older children have it, it's usually very mild (like a bad cold). 

Help prevent RSV by washing your hands often, good hygiene, and staying away from sick people.

Please watch for symptoms to know if your baby-toddler needs medical attention; difficulty breathing, eating, or dehydration.

 

Bronchiolitis is a common illness of the respiratory tract. It's caused by an infection that affects the tiny airways, called the bronchioles, that lead to the lungs. As these airways become inflamed, they swell and fill with mucus, which can make breathing difficult.

Bronchiolitis:

  • most often affects infants and young children because their noses and small airways can become blocked more easily than those of older kids or adults
  • typically happens during the first 2 years of life, most commonly at about 3 to 6 months of age
  • is more common in males, premature babies, children who have not been breastfed, and those who live in crowded conditions

Bronchiolitis is usually caused by a viral infection, most commonly respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). RSV infections are responsible for more than half of all cases of bronchiolitis. Other viruses associated with bronchiolitis include rhinovirus (the common cold virus), influenza (flu), human metapneumovirus, adenovirus, coronavirus, and parainfluenza. Childcare attendance and exposure to cigarette smokealso can increase a child's risk for bronchiolitis.

Please watch for symptoms and signs of distress and bring your child to a doctor or the emergency room.

Infants can start to get their Flu shots at 6 months of age. For their very first one, they'll typically receive a booster shot a month later. After that, one shot per year. 

Help prevent viruses by washing your hands often, coughing into your elbow, and disinfecting shopping carts, door handles, etc.
