More and more often, it seems that everyday people are becoming caregivers. Our parents are living longer and may need late-life caretaking. Increasing numbers of children are developing life-threatening food allergies, and 1 in every 88 children has some form of autism. Whether you’re a parent caretaker of a young child, a grown child of a parent needing care, or both, we highly recommend that you wear an ICE ID.
Adrenal insufficiency is a condition resulting from insufficient hormone production by the adrenal glands, which are located on top of each kidney. Typically, these glands produce three types of hormones (glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, and androgens), and when they fail to do so, the result is adrenal insufficiency. Although it is very difficult to detect and diagnose this condition early, once it is diagnosed, adrenal insufficiency is a highly treatable, yet lifelong, disease that typically does not negatively impact activity level or life expectancy if treated properly.

People often think of medical ID jewelry as something that is only necessary for people with serious, chronic illnesses. Really, almost anyone can benefit from wearing a medical ID bracelet, because we never know when we might be injured, involved in an accident, or suffer a sudden medical emergency. These are simply things we cannot plan for, and having some form of medical ID jewelry makes it easier and faster for first responders to identify us, treat us, and alert our loved ones.
When you have a child in school with any kind of health concerns, there’s one person with whom parents should make an extra effort to build a relationship: the school nurse. School nurses are the first line of defense for managing health issues, both chronic and immediate, at school, and cooperative relationships with these important healthcare providers are essential aspects of a cohesive health care plan. Unfortunately, many schools and districts are doing away with school nurses, citing budget cuts, but often creates situations in which EMTs have to respond to student needs when the school nurse would have been able to provide appropriate (and faster) care. It’s a complex situation at best, so we sat down with Las Vegas, NV-based school nurse, Keri Mossel, RN, MSN, and asked her about the ins and outs of school nursing. Here’s what she had to say.
