Dialysis Treatment in Vieques, Puerto Rico …. “🇵🇷 A 10-12 Hour Commute for Life-Saving Treatment …. HuffPost Reports 🇵🇷 …. “!!

DIALYSIS TREATMENT

~VIEQUES, PUERTO RICO~

This is a topic which is very dear and close to my heart.

As a retired physician, I fully understand the process, the need for treatment, the underlying medical conditions and the meaning of life-saving treatment.

On the other hand, my only brother died of complications of chronic renal failure several years ago. In the aftermath of Hurricane María, I often thought about him and how he would manage to receive this three times a week treatment when the electrical power situation and the hospital care was so lacking in my country.

One year after Hurricane María, Puerto Ricans living in Vieques, go through harrowing, uncomfortable, tiring, exhausting and dangerous ways to receive their treatment.

This video explains their situation.

An American possession with this ‘quality of care’?

Laughable … not!!

In medicine, dialysis is the process of removing excess water, solutes, and toxins from the blood in people whose kidneys can no longer perform these functions naturally.

This is referred to as renal replacement therapy.

Dialysis Patients Are Still Trekking 12 Hours for Care After Hurricane María
Left without a hospital, some Puerto Ricans must travel by plane for lifesaving treatment

Hurricane María totaled Vieques’s hospital, which housed the island’s only dialysis clinic

That set off an ongoing crisis for patients with kidney failure who cannot survive without dialysis and for whom the thrice-weekly round trip to a dialysis center in Humacao on Puerto Rico’s main island, including treatment, takes at least 12 hours.

THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP

ANYONE DOUBT ANYMORE?

If you notice, I wrote his name correctly.

The only reason for this is because it’s the book’s title. For me he’s been Drumpf, the original name when his ‘ancestors’ immigrated to this country.

The book is amazingly well done, thoroughly documented and scary as hell!

I’m just in the early chapters.

If you care about this country, get educated and don’t keep falling for the master of con men of this lifetime.

This is not normal.

Since the start of Drumpf’s presidential run, one question has quietly but urgently permeated the observations of concerned citizens: What is wrong with him? Constrained by the American Psychiatric Association’s “Goldwater rule,” which inhibits mental health professionals from diagnosing public figures they have not personally examined, many of those qualified to answer this question have shied away from discussing the issue at all. The public has thus been left to wonder whether he is mad, bad, or both.

In THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP, twenty-seven psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health experts argue that, in Mr. Drumpf’s case, their moral and civic “duty to warn” America supersedes professional neutrality.

They then explore Drumpf’s symptoms and potentially relevant diagnoses to find a complex, if also dangerously mad, man.

Keith Olbermann, #45 …. “TRUMPCARE …. Gutting Health Care Will Kill Americans …. “!!


KO-45

~~March 15, 2017~~ 

APOCALYPSE FORETOLD

I’ve been in healthcare all my professional life. At this time, I’ve been retired for 4 years.

I can truly tell you, from the front lines, that healthcare is a major issue in the lives of all Americans.

You never know when any medical condition will strike you or any member of your family.

It can deal a devastating blow to life as you know it … emotionally and financially.

It’s my strong personal belief that we are on this Earth to help each other when needed.

We are not here to hurt anyone!

Trumpcare vs. Obamacare

The Congressional Budget Office report on Trumpcare is out, and it’s devastating: 14 million people losing insurance in the first year, 24 million over time, with premiums soaring for older, lower-income Americans — in many cases, the very people who went strongly for President Trump.

The C.B.O. thinks it would reduce the deficit, but only marginally, around $30 billion a year in a $19 trillion economy.

Obamacare imposes a mandate to induce healthy people to sign up, offers means-tested subsidies to make insurance affordable and expands Medicaid to take care of people with really low incomes. Trumpcare eliminates the mandate, slashes subsidies overall and redirects them to those who don’t need them and sharply cuts Medicaid.

Of course that leads to a huge drop in coverage.

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

American Health Care Act

~Repeal and Replace~

How many times have we heard this?

First of all, please excuse the language.

There are times when one has to get graphic to get the point across some thick heads.

I think this is one such topic.

Trae Crowder does an awesome job in bringing this reality to the level of many who don’t get it.

Let him explain it better!

Liberal Redneck Comes for ‘Anus Polisher’ Jason Chaffetz and Drumpfcare

Liberal Redneck Trae Crowder contemplated not talking about Drumpfcare because it’s so “profoundly terrible that even most Republicans hate it.”

Says Crowder

“This thing is the shi**y Independence Day sequel of health care laws.”

Crowder also comes for “senior Drumpf administration anus polisher Jason Chaffetz” and his remarks about choosing between health care and an iPhone.

“That sh*t is like telling somebody that if they can’t afford their work truck payment this month then maybe they shouldn’t have bought those blue jeans back in October … the cost of an iPhone won’t get you two aspirins and a slap on the ass in an American hospital … Will somebody explain to this dude that a smartphone hasn’t been a luxury item in this country in ten damn years … you can’t hardly live without a smartphone in modern America. It’s a shitty choice to have to make, and that’s the thing. These people don’t know anything about making hard choices.”

~~February 9, 2017~~

IS THIS THE NEW AMERICA?

A four-month-old Iranian girl, scheduled to fly into Portland for a heart surgery appointment at OHSU had to postpone the procedure after Drumpf’s immigration order.

The infant, Fatemah, has a heart condition. Her family found out about it at a routine checkup, and her pediatricians say she needs to have surgery soon.

“They said ‘this is a miracle, we don’t know how she had lived with the big problem she had.’ Immediately she has to do the surgery,” her uncle, Samad Taghizadeh , told KATU News.

Taghizadeh lives in Portland with Fatemah’s grandparents; they are American citizens. The family chose to have the open-heart surgery at Oregon Health & Science University – which boasts one of the top pediatric cardiology programs in the U.S. – because facilities in Iran do not have the equipment necessary for such a procedure.

At the end of the day …. “Dr. Harold Bornstein …. I question his medical ‘stamina and veracity’ …. it fits better with ‘stand-up’ comedy …. “!!

“ASTONISHINGLY HEALTHY”

Is that a new medical term?

After many, long years in the medical field, I can say, without doubt, what is a professional, medically, well-written doctor’s report about a patient under my care.

I don’t need the pundits to dissect this for me.

This is a laughing matter.

Sad to say, it’s not a comedy show but the national election of this country.

Once again, ‘the donald” has taken something almost “sacred” and made it into a laughable matter; down to the level of stand-up comedy … not that ‘stand-up comedy’ isn’t awesome when well done.

Comedy has no place in the medical field.

Comedy has no place in national elections.

Then again, this is just me!

Donald Trump’s Doctor Wrote Letter on His ‘Extraordinary’ Health in Only 5 Minutes

Dr. Harold Bornstein said in a new interview that he wrote the letter quickly as a limo was waiting

“His health is excellent, especially his mental health,” Dr. Harold Bornstein said in an interview with NBC Nightly News on Friday. He said he typed the letter at the last minute, while a limo dispatched by Trump waited for it.

“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” Bornstein wrote in the letter, calling the Republican nominee’s strength and stamina “extraordinary.”

He affirmed that statement in the interview with NBC.

“I like that sentence to be quite honest with you and all the rest of them are either sick or dead,” said Bornstein, who has been Trump’s doctor for 35 years.

He said his enthusiastic wording was inspired by the over-the-top language Trump favors

~~June 3, 2016~~ 

FENTANYL PATCH

As I physician, when I was actively practicing, this was a medication that was very limited and totally controlled.

It was used as a last resort, for patients in extreme pain, usually terminal cancer patients.

It was never  the first drug of choice for pain.

I’m sure that, during the days to come, much more info will be learned about this medications, it’s uses and effects.

HortyRex©

GoldSwirl

Fentanyl patch is a narcotic pain medicine that may become habit-forming. Misuse or abuse by placing it in the mouth or chewing, swallowing, injecting, or snorting it can lead to overdose and death. Do not use more than the recommended dose, use for longer than prescribed, or use more often than prescribed without checking with your doctor.

Fentanyl patch may cause severe and sometimes fatal breathing problems.

The risk of fentanyl patch’s side effects, including breathing problems, may be increased if you also take or have recently stopped certain other medicines or if you eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice.
