  • Strictly Science-Based

    Stem cell research is not a new topic but can be controversial for some. Often it is the embryonic stem cells that get people upset, but there are other stem cells out there that research and biotech companies are looking into for healing and helping people recover from devastating illnesses. As a purely scientific reading, stem cells are ...

  • Bringing It Home

    Last week I wasn't feeling well. Between patients, family members and other employees, there's a lot that can be passed between people in a facility. Although I use the alcohol gel and wash my hands, there are instances where a virus will find its way to me and I cannot avoid it. I didn't have a fever or any of the ''normal sickness'' symptoms, I ...

  • Advice for New Grads

    It's that time of year where the respiratory students are graduating. I remember when I first started at the children's hospital and we barely had any students. Nowadays we have over seven schools that come to visit. It's a great opportunity to have year long interviews and see which one of these students would be a good fit for our respiratory ...
  • The Importance of Mentorship

    Although having only been a PTA for three years, I've found myself in conversations with many potential future SPTA candidates. Quite a few have been with bright and hardworking CNAs who I work with in skilled nursing and others have been with folks my age or older (that would be the 40+ set if you were wondering) looking into PTA as a second or ...

  • Changing Goals

    With one week left until graduation, I had my most challenging patient-care conversation since starting PT school. One of my current patients, whom I happened to work with in inpatient rehabilitation during my previous clinical rotation, is a very complex case. He suffered an anoxic brain injury that unfortunately was complicated by a transfemoral ...

  • Asthma Educator Institute

    Continuing education is a necessity in the field of medicine. As a respiratory therapist, I want to know current evidence based information to provide my patients quality and cost effective care. This week, I went to a two day seminar provided by the America Lung Association called the Asthma Educator Institute (AEI). Most of the people there were ...
  • Request for Submissions

    It's that time of year again. The company that I teach for is requesting submissions for an education summit next year. I'm supposed to select a topic, describe what it is and why I think people would be interested. Then I submit that and five references no more than a year or two old. They try to present newer information. The problem is I can't ...

  • A Blog of Olympic Proportion

    Have you all seen what has been going on in Russia the last few weeks? No, not all that business with the Ukraine and Crimea (although honestly when was the last time one country just up and annexed part of another country? Seriously, it's been a while!). But I'm talking about the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia. After all the pomp and ...

  • Asthma & Mice

    Mouse. What do you think of when you hear the word? You may think of the most famous mouse - Mickey. Or you may think of a cute little field mouse, like the ones I had to deal with in my former state of Illinois. You might think about running away if you saw one. You could think of a pet or just a plain dirty rodent. One word can bring up so ...
  • I Can't Treat That

    I remember my neurology professor at physical therapy school would frequently joke that her friends didn't understand what type of work she did. She would say ''physical therapist'' and they would assume orthopedic injuries and ask for help with their necks, backs, and other musculoskeletal concerns. She would politely correct them and ...
