Heartburn or GERD can Kill

Heartburn is a common annoyance. The busy lifestyle, quick meals, fatty or spicy foods all contribute to the occasional need of a chewable pain reliever. The acceptance of heartburn as an inconvenient, but natural, part of the daily grind can blind you to the warning that a severe heartburn symptom can bring.

Heartburn as a Disorder

Heartburn can be a symptom as well as a disorder. Simple heartburn or GERD can be controlled and dealt with. However, heartburn can signal the presence of a much more serious problem. If it’s heartburn, you will have a burning sensation in the chest usually after eating. There may be a spread of the burning to the throat, sometimes accompanied by a bad taste, difficulty in swallowing, belching, coughing, hoarseness and/or wheezing.

It can become worse by lying down or bending over or by eating. Relief can come from an antacid. While the more severe heartburn symptoms may be mistaken for a heart attack, simple heartburn is usually not made worse by exercise. If there is any concern that the pain may signal a heart attack, get help quickly.

Trim Down With Liposculpture

By Jayna Davis

I can take a lot of time and effort to look good and stay fit. In today's world, where a simple press of a button or a few clicks of a mouse can get you what you want, it can be an effort to even make an effort. Something as simple as getting up and going out to do the groceries has become a thing of the past for a lot of people; you can get your groceries delivered to you at your door.

There are spots in the body where the flab just doesn't seem to go away, no matter how much diet and exercise a person goes for. Don't worry, that's normal. It's annoying, but normal. One of the fastest and most effective ways to get rid of the extra fat in specific areas is liposculpture.

Of course, there's an alternative to simply letting yourself get enormously, monstrously fat or having to go through all the rigors of diet and exercise: take the surgical route. This is especially useful if you need to trim down quickly. The problem with liposuction though, is that although it gets rid of lots of fat pretty quickly, it's a really invasive and fairly risky procedure, and can often require a stay at the hospital, especially if you get a whole lot of fat removed.

The problem with liposuction is that it's a pretty risky and invasive kind of procedure, and because of that, it can take you out of commission for a while. Also, if all you want to do is get rid of the extra flab you might be carrying around in certain problem areas in your body, liposuction might not be the best way to go.

Liposculpture, on the other hand, could be just the procedure for you. Liposcuplture costs about the same a liposuction, and it follows the same basic principle of well sucking out those bothersome fat cells. It's a lot less invasive though; and it's a lot more precise as well.

Liposculpture uses a surgical technique called the tumescent technique, which involves injecting the fat in the area with a saline solution so that it becomes softer and easier to siphon out. This saline solution usually also serves as a local anesthetic -numbing the area so that you won't feel any pain when the incision is made and the suction device used. Depending on the doctor and the situation, you might not need to take any other anesthetics, which can be really useful, especially if you have allergies.

So, if you're worried about those hard-to-reach places where the fat just doesn't seem to go away, don't worry, there are surgical techniques that can take care of them. Out of all those techniques, liposculpture is the very best. Liposculpture cost for the procedure alone can be anywhere from $1,200, to $6,000, plus professional fees and the cost of the use of facilities, but it's worth the money.

This technique is really effective, and it's so non-invasive, that you don't even have to shell out for a hospital stay!

000 Relationships - How To Attract A Man

By Chris Jensen

Who ever said that it is difficult to turn a guy on? Guys are easy. Girls can simply wear drop-dead-gorgeous clothes, put on some make-up, and get a guy's attention eventually. They can walk, talk, and act like they're easy and immediately turn any guy on. For some of us, this may be hard to believe. How can guys be easy? Well, here's a treat for all of you who are wondering - the secret on how to attract a man.

One man said that flirting was a great way for women to attract men. Men love it when women flirt with them. But how is flirting done?

Flirting is of a playful nature. You cannot be a serious flirt. Flirting involves humor, risk, and a display of interest. It is so much similar to when boys used to tease you in grade school and you tease them back. It indicates interest in the other person, even when that interest may not be requited. It involves making the other person feel special without expecting anything in return. Flirting, then, puts you at risk for rejection.

Flirting is not confined to the men you like. You can flirt with anyone, anywhere, and anytime. Soon, flirting will become natural to you and you will find it easy to strike up a conversation with people you do not really know.

Flirting does not guarantee attraction. Although flirting is usually effective with most men, every flirt must still ready herself for possible rejection. Remember, do not take rejection personally. When you flirt with someone, you offer him the possibility of connection. If he doesn't want it, simply offer it to someone else.

On a closing note, I would like to add that flirting is immensely flattering. But then again, you know what they say, "Wherever there is a flatterer, there is also a fool.

Using Credentialing Software to Stay Up-to-date on Standards

By Hansel McDonough

The whole physician credentialing verification can really become complicated. It's not simply keeping track of certificates and licenses, but also involves knowledge of a physician's performance. Also, OPPE standards say that all of it has to be reviewed regularly.

Credentialing software is by far the superior way to meet all those goals. By having all the information in just one place, credentialing is simpler because it aids the hospital in knowing when to collect information, and what to collect.

All information about a doctor is entered into the software, and copies of his licenses and certificates are scanned in. As a result, a hospital can see at a glance what duties a doctor is capable of performing. Up to three months before his licenses expire, the system lets the hospital know.

But credentialing software keeps track of more than just credentials. It makes it simple to write a report about a doctor. In addition, the system lets the hospital know when this information needs to be reviewed.

When something happens that knocks the doctor out of compliance with expectations, he receives a flag on his case. This occurs so that fellow physicians or hospital employees can know his case standing on the system. Additionally, the hospital may see if they can help in any way.

Credentialing software has the ability to take the forms that are already contained within the system and enter information automatically into them about any physician you would like. If for some reason the form you need is not already in the system, it will aid you in creating it and saving it within the system.

When a meeting needs to be scheduled at anytime, the program can facilitate it. All that needs to happen is the credentialing committee members sign in, look at the information, and vote. This makes things much easier and saves on paper.

You can also keep track of earned CME credits with the software. Not only does credentialing software allow to you view how many have been earned, but how many are needed by the doctor or anybody else around the hospital. When a hospital takes advantage of this software, they will be current on all credentialing, privileging and also OPPE standards.
