FDA has Approved Chloroquine as COVID Treatment

March 19, the US President Donald Trump along with Vice President Mike Pence and other members of White House Coronavirus Task Force held a briefing on efforts taken to fight the new coronavirus. He made a quite important statement regarding new methods of COVID-2019 treatment.

The President said, in particular: ‘it is shown very encouraging — very, very encouraging early results’, ‘for me it is even more important than a vaccine’. He claimed that this is ‘beyond right to try’, as trying to use some medicines may save people’s lives. They tested several drugs and examined foreign markets, and the President revealed the most effective solution at the moment.

Trump claimed that the US Food and Drug Administration (the FDA) approved Chloroquine & Hydroxychloroquine to treat the coronavirus. This is a common malaria drug, and it is also used to treat strong arthritis. ‘I think it’s gonna be great’, Trump added.

malaria drug chloroquine

In a post-briefing statement FDA claimed that the medication had not been approved as a ‘treatment method’ for COVID-2019 disease, they only gave the green light to its additional testing in large-scale clinical studies. That’s not surprising, as it usually takes a long time for the FDA to approve any medication for treatment of any disease due to procedural things, as many experiments should be performed.

So chloroquine will be subject to extra clinical studies which will be focused on efficiency and safety issues.

However, representatives of this authority confirmed that the medication showed effectiveness in reducing symptoms of the disease and preventing its spread (due to hindering viral shedding). At the moment, it has only official approval for malaria prevention and other purposes, however, healthcare professionals are allowed to prescribe it off-label to patients suffering from the coronavirus.

In addition, several days ago, Deutsch pharmaceutical giant Bayer announced the donation of 3 million chloroquine tablets to the United States government. Germany can afford that, considering a large-scale testing for COVID inside this country, and the lowest mortality rate from the novel coronavirus in the world (in comparison with other affected countries).

What does this actually mean? This means that patients can use this drug off-label as a method of coronavirus treatment and, probably, prevention. And this is one of the most tested medication at the moment, amid tight deadlines.

A strong demand for the medication is expected in nearest time. So hurry up to buy Chloroquine & Hydroxychloroquine from our online pharmacy.

Latest News and Updates

During these challenging times, people are trying to find reliable treatments of the novel coronavirus, successfully or unsuccessfully. As the saying goes, old friends and old wine are the best. Some old antiviral and antimalarial drugs, which have already begun to be forgotten, have shown decent effectiveness in treating the new dangerous infection.

Chloroquine (sold under trade names Aralen, Avloclor, Cadiquin, Malaquin, Malarex, and others) is one of them.

History of the Drug and Its Uses

Chloroquine has been used to treat malaria for over 70 years. It belongs to the group of 4-aminoquinoline derivatives. Italian researcher Johann Andersag discovered it in 1934 as part of his work at Bayer AG. For decades, this discovery was ignored, as doctors believed that it was too dangerous for the human body. However, during the Second World War, American clinical laboratories thoroughly tested the medication and the scientists unequivocally stated that chloroquine is important for the treatment of malaria and can be used by patients.

The drug causes the death of erythrocyte forms of certain types of plasmodia, including those that cause malaria disease.

However, many plasmodia have developed resistance to the medication, so people began to use it mainly for preventive purposes rather than for therapeutic ones (of course, malaria is better to prevent than to treat and this applies to any disease).

It is also used to treat certain autoimmune diseases resulting from the fact that the immune system mistakenly attacks its own organs and tissues.

Opinion of French Scientists

france coronavirus

Clinical studies of chloroquine conducted in a hospital in Marseille have shown its effectiveness in treating coronavirus infection, as reported by Forbes and other top media. As an official spokeswoman for the French government said on Tuesday, March 17, the results were ‘promising’ and the research will be expanded.

On Monday, the famous French infectious disease doctor, head of the Mediterranean Institute of Infectious Diseases in Marseille, Didier Raoult, reported that 24 patients infected with coronavirus agreed to take Plaquenil (this is one of the commercial names for chloroquine). A week after starting the therapy with the drug, only 6 of them remained infected. At the same time, 90% of those who did not take this medication were still carriers of the virus. Therefore, the pharmaceutical was recommended by French doctors for widespread use. They noted that it is affordable and has a low cost, so almost any patient can buy it.

Guidelines Developed by Chinese Researchers

During the outbreak of coronavirus in China, scientists and doctors have tested many drugs. They found that chloroquine restrained the development of pneumonia, improved lung condition and reduced the duration of the disease. They also recommended the use of 500 mg of chloroquine phosphate for 10 days as the optimal duration of treatment for the disease. The drug showed effectiveness regardless of the severity of the illness (mild / moderate / severe).

Last Update from USA

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the use of the antimalarial drug chloroquine for the treatment of patients with coronavirus (in test regime). It should be noted that this is the first drug which received a positive feedback from the FDA.

Where to Find Chloroquine?

As the medication is not very popular, many pharmacies have ceased its sales. For instance, top European online pharmacies do not have it, offering other antimalarial drugs as substitutes. However, some web-enabled drugstores which have been operating for long time on the market, have reserves of this drug (its production has not stopped).

Customers can buy it at My Canadian Health&Care Mall.

It’s Important to Know

You need to take the medicine with caution, adhering to the recommended dosages. An overdose increases the risk of side effects, which can be very unpleasant and even dangerous.

Perspectives of Chloroquine

Chloroquine is now undergoing several additional studies which should reveal its mechanism of action against COVID in detail and specify peculiarities of its administration (although instructions from Chinese scientists exist right now). It seems the medication has received a new lease of life. Despite mediocre effectiveness against malaria, it showed great efficiency in treating coronavirus, was approved by the FDA, and will regain popularity all over the world amidst quickly spreading pandemic of COVID-2019.

COVID-2019 – General Steps to Save Your Life

step to save life

The novel 2019 coronavirus has killed many people, despite relatively low fatality rate. If you know how to behave yourself in the correct situation, you can protect yourself from infection or minimize its negative consequences (if you’ve had a close contact with a person with confirmed/alleged infection or just feel bad due to potentially dangerous cause).

Step 1. Stay Away From People With Signs Of Illness

You should avoid close contacts with sick people. As interpreted by the US CDC, close contact means being within about 2 meters (6 feet) of a sick person or items which may be infected. Such a situation may occur when you visit, care of, live with coronavirus case or share the same room while visiting a doctor. It should also be noted that only a human can be a source of the virus, so if you have the opportunity to avoid crowds, do it.

Step 2. Do Not Touch Your Face With Your Hands

If you’re in a public place, ride public transport, etc., do not touch your eyes, mouth, nose with non-washed hands. Wash the hands thoroughly before touching the face. You can also rinse your mouth with saline, this will help increase local immunity.

Step 3. Stay Home If You Are Sick

If you’re sick (feel flu or cold symptoms), you should be at home getting better. Remember, coronavirus does not have specific symptoms in the initial stages. Not staying home in ill condition, you can aggravate its course and infect others. Don’t go to work, university or school. In addition, if you returned from the risk zone or think that you may have the dangerous disease for another reason, it is better to call an ambulance than visiting the hospital independently to minimize contacts.

Step 4. Clean Your Phone

We mentioned that it is not recommended to touch your face if your hands are unwashed.
However, many people forget that their gadgets (smartphones, smart watches, laptops, etc.) may also be carriers of the potentially fatal virus. The same applies to frequently touched surfaces. You may use a wipe, ordinary household spray, or ethanol-based disinfector.

Step 5. Do Not Forget About Others

Sikhs say, ‘Treat others as you would be treated yourself’. Sneezing or coughing, cover nose and / or mouth to prevent virus dissemination. Remember that respiratory droplets are the most common way of its spreading.

Short FAQ

  1. Should You Use A Facemask?

    In fact, masks can be useless. With the occurrence of news about coronavirus, a hysteria started, people began to buy masks en masse (there is even a ridiculous myth that the coronavirus is very large and the mask does not let it through).
    However, to put it mildly, this is an unreliable way of protection.
    One should only wear it if his / her doctor recommends that or if one has become sick (allegedly or confirmedly) with coronavirus. use mask for protection

  2. Can You Get Re-Infected with Coronavirus?

    The body cannot develop immunity to coronavirus.
    So, unfortunately, reinfection cases are possible.

  3. Are Supplements Helpful for COVID Prevention?

    Different supplements are actually useless. They may help to improve immunity but they can’t prevent coronavirus infection.

  4. Can You Go On Vacation To Vietnam / Indonesia / Italy At The Moment?

    During an outbreak, it is better to refrain from traveling abroad, unless you are a Chinese national.

  5. Can You Buy Goods on Alibaba and Other Chinese Websites? Can Parcels be Contaminated?

    COVID needs a living organism to survive, it features a low survivability on superficies. Delivery may take several days and even weeks, hence risks to be caught by the infection are extremely low. There is no proof the virus may be transmitted via imported parcels.

  6. Can a Previously Quarantined Person Spread the Disease to Surrounding People?

    Quarantine is a separation of a person or several persons associated with their potential/real exposure to COVID-2019.
    Quarantine period usually lasts 14 days (2 weeks), because this is most likely the longest possible incubation period.
    After a release from isolation an individual is considered ‘clean’.military approves camps

  7. Should You Be Tested For Coronavirus?

    Call your health care expert if you feel bad and have closely contacted with a person with confirmed diagnosis or have recently arrived from infected area (in China, Italy, etc.). Your doctor will contact representatives of healthcare authorities and determine if you need the test. Due to lack of test kits, they are applied only if there is a reasonable suspicion.
    coronavirus test

  8. Can Test Results Be Wrong?

    At initial stages, virus may show no signs in the body, and the test might be mistakenly negative. But if you already have some symptoms, and the test has been negative, this most likely means ‘crowned virus’ is not the cause.

  9. What Should You Do If You Think You Have Coronavirus Symptoms or Have Gotten Infected?

    Stay home and restrict all your daily activities which imply contacts with other people. Avoid public transport and even taxi. Separate yourself from persons who are living with you, as well as from pets (there are no reports about COVID-2019 cases in animals, but some risk of contamination exists). You also need to wear a facemask, always cover cough and sneezes, and prevent personal household stuff from sharing. If you develop a severe condition, call 911 and inform healthcare workers that you might suffer from coronavirus.coronavirus symptoms

  10. How To Treat The Disease Properly?

    The body needs about 5 days to start producing sufficient quantity of antibodies. Actually, treatment methods have supporting purposes, they help the body to react adequately. Some remedies like Kaletra have proven antiviral effect.kaletra coronavirus

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) – WHAT IS IT AND GEOGRAPHICAL DISTRIBUTION OF THE VIRUS

A new 2020 coronavirus raised huge public concern and need for greater awareness in order to protect oneself from potentially deadly disease. Below we’ll provide answers to the most asked general questions about coronavirus.

What is Coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a class of dangerous viruses that infect people & animals. The ‘corona’ (i.e. ‘crown’)  in these viruses means tentacles that mimic the activity of other molecules and cause a reaction of receptors. This reaction leads to the penetration of the hazardous pathogen and its RNA into the cell.

The first case of human coronavirus was detected in 2002. Its causative agent — SARS-CoV, and this microorganism caused SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). Then in 2015 there was an outbreak of a disease caused by another coronavirus called MERS-CoV (also known as camel flu).

what is covid-19

The Wuhan virus, which triggered a new epidemic of deadly disease in the People’s Republic of China, which began in late December 2019, is called SARS-CoV-2, as it is 70 percent similar to SARS of the 1st type.

Where Did the Coronavirus Come From?

The first disease occasions are associated with the consumption of animal food in the Wuhan market of seafood and other exotic animals such as badger bats, wolf puppies and poisonous snakes. Some scientists have linked prepping / eating krait and cobra meat with human virus infection. This forced China to start fighting the black market for wild animals on the national scale (and the market in Wuhan was closed in early January 2020).

Then, Chinese scientists said the virus began earlier and SARS-2 hit the market from another place. Therefore, the exact sources are still unknown. There are conspiracy theories (that the agent was supposedly specially developed in the laboratory by humans), but they aren’t backed with sufficient evidence.

COVID-2019: Total Confirmed Cases by Region

How Does It Spread?

The key way of transmission is airborne. When an ill or infected folk coughs, sneezes, or breathes, small viral particles spreads in the air. Infection is possible through a handshake / other direct contact or indirectly (if a person touches objects that the carrier of the virus previously touched). Fecal-oral transmission is also possible.

This is why it’s important to follow hygiene rules, wash hands thoroughly and use other methods of disinfection.

hygiene rules
coronavirus rules

What Are the Symptoms of the Disease?

The incubation period lasts from 1 to 14 days.

According to some reports, it can last 21 days and even 28 days (but these are more likely exceptions). The main symptoms of the disease are similar to the flu: fever, cough, shortness of breath, headache, acute malaise. More severe symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, pneumonia (lung inflammation), severe acute respiratory syndrome,, kidney disorders. Some people have passed away of insufferable complications. The current fatality rate is about 3.4%. It varies depending on the person; as a rule, the older the patient, the bigger the risk to die.

How to Detect (Diagnose) Coronavirus?

The key diagnostic technique applied by doctors is the examination of nasopharynx smear or trachea fluid with the help of the molecular genetic method.

To get the results one needs to wait 2-4 hours.

The test is highly accurate. Blood tests are also indicative and can be used. In addition, a microscope is sometimes used to detect the virus, or the virus is grown in a special medium. But these methods are primarily used to meticulously examine the coronavirus rather than an ordinary check.

Are There Treatment Methods? Can Antibiotics Be Used?

There are no specific treatment methods at the moment, but already available antiviral remedies have showed therapeutic effect. Some of them, in particular, Kaletra (lopinavir plus ritonavir, brand name Lopimune) were successfully tested during previous outbreak of coronavirus (SARS 1) at the beginning of 2000s. In severe causes, therapy is aimed to restore normal breathing, maintain lung function and prevent other complications.

Despite viral nature of the disease, bacteria often come into picture so antibiotics are most often necessary for successful treatment.  

Who Is More Likely to Get the Virus?

The categories of individuals who are most at risk of contracting the virus include those who suffers from heart disease, diabetes, lung illnesses, immunodeficiencies, and tumors.

Naturally, people who live or have visited the infection zone are at considerable risk of developing coronavirus disease.

Is Coronavirus a Pandemic or an Epidemic?

Epidemic is the rapid spread of an infection to a large number of individuals, typically on the national level, or across several countries. Pandemic means worldwide spreading of infectious agents. The WHO called coronavirus an epidemic but then said that it ‘has a pandemic potential’. Some experts disagree with that but that’s the official position.

Which Countries Have Confirmed Cases of Coronavirus?

Coronavirus was emerged in Wuhan (Hubei province, China). As of early March 2020, dozens of countries have confirmed cases of perilous contamination, but in most of these countries cases are rare.

The most affected countries are (in descending order): China, South Korea, Italy, Iran, Japan, Germany, France and Spain.

When Will Coronavirus Go Away?

It’s hard to say for sure, but based on previous experience (SARS 1) epidemic might last several months. It’s a new disease, but its causative agent is similar to the ‘old’ SARS.

Conclusion

COVID-19 is not the worst disease in the history of humans. But it has already killed many people. We hope that the joint efforts of states, health organizations and people, as well as the right treatment methods, will lead to a complete victory over the new virus.

Most Popular Viagra Myths and Their Debunking: Top 7

Viagra has existed in the pharmaceutical market for about 20 years. It is one of the most popular medicines for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men. Naturally, like any popular product, Viagra has got surrounded with myths for this time. Therefore, there are many misconceptions concerning Viagra. Below we will tell you about the most popular Viagra myths and debunk them. More information about canadian viagra 50/100mg read here: https://mycanadianhealthcaremall.com/product/viagra/

Myth 1. Viagra is a Remedy with Instant Effect

Some men believe that they will have a penile erection immediately after they use the pill. However, it is not true. Viagra, like any other medicine, begins to act after a while, because the gastrointestinal tract takes time to digest and absorb the main component of the drug. Usually onset of Viagra’s effect is observed in 30-60 minutes after administration of the tablet.

However, in some cases, the appearance of the effect may be delayed and a man experiences the necessary result only in 90-120 minutes.

This applies especially to situations where a patient used very fatty foods which interfered with the absorption of the main component of Viagra.

Myth 2. Viagra Cures ED

Many people believe that the “blue” pill can cure ED. Unfortunately, Viagra does not cure ED, it can only treat it. Men with poor erections are likely to benefit from the use of Viagra (this medication is effective in about 80 percent of cases), however, this effect will last only for about 6 hours, sometimes more. Then everything will return to its place. To cure ED, it is necessary to eliminate the root cause of this disease and fight it.

The only case when Viagra can help in curing ED is a psychogenic form of the disease. Viagra can be prescribed to patients with psychogenic ED to improve the achievement of erection, while it also serves as a kind of psychological support for men. They know that they used a pill and therefore they have nothing to fear. Viagra-based therapy continues until the complete restoration of natural psychological defense mechanisms.

Myth 3. Viagra Causes Unwanted Erection

Many men think that if they use one pill, they immediately get a powerful erection that may be undesirable at a particular time. However, it is not true. Viagra does not cause a penile erection itself. This medication only promotes the proper course of natural mechanisms in the male organ. Sildenafil (the main component of the drug) improves blood flow as a result of the launch of a cascade of physiological and biochemical reactions that occur only if a man is sexually aroused. That is, Viagra works only when it is needed.

Note: in very rare cases, some men experience a serious side effect of Viagra which is called priapism. It implies a prolonged erection that lasts more than 4 hours (according to some sources, more than 6 hours) for no apparent reason and causes painful sensations. This side effect is common in men with predisposition to priapism.

This predisposition is caused by such diseases as:

  • sickle cell anemia;
  • multiple myeloma;
  • leukemia;
  • tumors of the central nervous system.

Myth 4. Viagra Is an Aphrodisiac

Aphrodisiacs are food products, natural supplements or drugs that increase libido. Usually the mechanism of their action is stimulating the synthesis of important sex hormones. However, Viagra does not belong to aphrodisiacs. It does not affect the level of hormones in the body.

Nevertheless, theoretically, Viagra can indirectly affect the libido. But this is possible after the man is already sexually aroused. Bad erections can muffle sex drive, whereas normal ones can stimulate sexual desire. In addition, according to a study by C. Dording et al. (2013), the long-term use of Viagra for the treatment of antidepressant-induced ED was associated not only with the enhancement of penile erection but also with improvement in libido.

Myth 5. Viagra Causes Addiction

Viagra does not contain substances that can affect the psyche. There is no physiological dependence on Viagra, and psychological one can occur very rarely. The drug has a high safety profile and is classified as non-habit forming when taken as directed. It works for a short time and does not stay long in the body.

However, some people develop psychological dependence. It should be noted that this phenomenon depends primarily on their psyche. Such people get used to Viagra and even after eliminating the causes of erectile dysfunction do not imagine their sex life without this anti-ED medication. However, such cases are rare. This issue has not even been considered in scientific research.

Myth 6. Viagra Does Not Work. I Tried the Medication and It Did Not Help Me

Do not forget that Viagra is not a food supplement but a chemical substance (medicine). Therefore, take the drug in accordance with the prescription of the doctor.

There can be several reasons for the ineffectiveness of the tablet:

  1. too low dosage* (for example, 25 mg);
  2. the man heavily ate before taking the pill and consumed fatty foods (a large amount of food, especially fatty one, slows down the absorption of the active agent in the body);
  3. lack of sexual stimulation.

To take Viagra, the doctor gives recommendations that you must follow rigorously. Due to this you will be able to achieve the maximum effect from the drug. However, if your partner absolutely does not attract you sexually, then the erection will not come. As we have noted above, Viagra does not create an artificial sexual attraction or erection.

* Viagra Dosage Topic

Myth 7. Viagra is Very Dangerous to the Human Body

This is a common fairy tale, which has not been confirmed by anything to this day. A variety of tests conducted in most of the countries showed that the most common side effects of Viagra were headaches, blood rush to the head and heaviness in the stomach. However, you should always consult a health care provider before starting to take Viagra if you suffer from any serious illnesses (especially cardiovascular ones) and take any meds, especially prescription ones. This is due to the fact that Viagra can enter into dangerous interactions with certain medicines. It should be emphasized that the combination of Viagra and nitrates, such as nitroglycerin, is absolutely contraindicated. This can lead to a sharp and pronounced decrease in blood pressure and even to a lethal effect.

Thus, there is a big difference between people’s ideas about Viagra and real facts. You need to know the truth in order to decide whether this medicine is suitable for you or not.

Viagra, Antibiotics, and Other Meds that Were Discovered Accidentally

Many medicines were invented during a long and painstaking work aimed at the development of a specific substance that must treat a certain disease. But some medicines or their effects were discovered quite by accident.

Discovery of Sildenafil’s Anti-ED Effect

sildenafil researchThis entertaining story is well-known. In the early 1990s, Pfizer scientists worked on a medicine for cardiovascular disease, but at the stage of clinical trials it was found that the drug did not provide a substantial cardiac action, but it had an unexpected and very interesting “side effect“. Some participants did not want to return the pills. It turned out that they had a significantly improved penile erection.

After a lot of new research and safety checks in 1998, blue pills were released to the market, thus giving men and their partners a chance to renew their sexual relations. Viagra caused a real sensation in the market of anti-ED medications, because earlier there had not been such effective and easy-to-use tablets.

By the way, the Nobel Prize (a parody of the Nobel Prize), which is awarded annually to scientists for the most useless research, was awarded in 2007 to three Argentine researchers who found that sildenafil helped hamsters recover better after jet-lag.

11 Myths and Truths About Condoms

Rubber condoms were invented in the XIXth century with latex ones following shortly in the early XXth century. The condom provides perfect protection (>90%) against gonorrhea, HIV, and hepatitis B.

durex condom

However, according to recent studies, only 1/3 of young people in the USA used condom during their last sex.

This situation is partly due to some myths and misconceptions existing amongst the people. Well, it’s time to dispel the stereotypes associated with condoms.

  1. Condoms Have a Scent of Latex”

It’s not surprising, is it? Condoms are made of rubber hence they have the smell of rubber. You know, there are many other things that may smell during sex, so the condoms would not be a problem. If you hate that smell, you have options to choose from, for instance, Durex flavored condoms or completely odorless Naked condoms that are made of plastic.

non latex condom

  1. Foreplay Is Bad With Condoms”

This is a common misconception. But in order not to spoil the preliminary caresses, you just need to be able to quickly put on a condom. In fact, you only need about 20 seconds. Use condoms more often and eventually this problem will go away by itself.

  1. Condoms Decrease Sexual Pleasure”

According to the research by Mary E. Randolph et al. (2007), a lot of people believe that condoms badly affect sexual pleasure and many males who think so are less likely to use them. In fact, the difference is nonsignificant. Those suffering from allergy to lubricants and latex may feel bigger difference, however, they, again, can choose lubricant-free options made of plastic.

  1. Condoms Are the Man’s Responsibility”

Some people (heterosexual ones) believe that a man should purchase condoms and carry them around if he is planning to have sex. Are they kidding us?

Really, no matter who has purchased condoms if someone gets infected. The decisions that prevent diseases are a matter of personal responsibility. If you suggest having sex with a condom, it means you appreciate your and your partner’s health.

Moreover, there are female condoms (also called femidoms or internal condoms) – a big condom variation that is inserted in the vagina.

  1. walmart price for condomsCondoms Cost Too Much”

There are schools that distribute condoms for free among adolescents and young people aged 13 to 25. For older folks, there are many other ways to get those at a low price or even free of charge. Some foundations and organizations specializing in sexual health do that.

Agree, condom is a cheap thing in comparison with potential health problem that can lead to huge money-wasting.

  1. Condoms Provide Full Protection Against Diseases”

Condoms efficiently prevent from sexually transmitted diseases & pregnancy, but they do not guarantee 100% protection. One can get infected with both herpetic infection or genital warts in the area that is not covered by the sheath. Genital warts are small soft growths caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) and occurring on genitals. They are generally safe for males (but they can rarely lead to penis cancer); female persons are more vulnerable to complications of genital warts. Some types of human papillomavirus cause vulva & cervix cancer.

condoms protection

In addition, the warts may cause physical discomfort during sexual act. Similar to genital warts, herpes might disappear by itself, however, it remains in the blood and its breakouts are painful and unpleasant.

  1. Double protection condomsTwo Condoms Ensure More Protection”

This statement may seem reasonable, but that’s not true. “Doubled” condoms don’t maximize the protection. Quite the opposite, this practice can decrease effectiveness of condoms. When you use two contraception sheaths simultaneously, friction occurs between them, which increases the possibility of condom breakage.

Therefore, it is not recommended to use 2 condoms at time, which applies not only to male condoms but also to male plus female condoms.

  1. Condoms Break Easily”

Condoms have perfect stretchability, and many of them can be stretched up to 1 meter. Condom breakage cases are usually associated with improper rolling on the penis. When you are putting on a condom, there should be no air in it. Also, gaps can be caused by sharp woman’s nails. A lubricant based on oil can make a condom less resistant, therefore it is recommended to use only silicone- and water-based lubes. If you follow the instructions and do everything right, condoms are unlikely to break. You should also store them in cool & dark place so that they will “work” longer.

  1. You Should be Full-Aged to Buy Condoms”

There are no age restrictions to purchase condoms (unlike alcohol and cigarettes). Furthermore, in some US states, condoms are distributed among teenagers under 15 so that they learn more about contraceptive means and use them properly when the moment comes.

  1. It Is So Awkward to Buy Condoms”

You don’t have to worry about this. According to statistical data, 450,000,000 contraception sheaths are sold in the US each year. It may be embarrassing to purchase the condom for the 1st time, but agree, it is much more embarrassing to tell someone about the caught sexual infection. If you still have problems with that, you can order condoms online with delivery in a non-descript packaging.

  1. It’s Difficult to Catch an Infection”

In fact, it is very easy to catch an infection if your partner is a carrier of a sex transmitted disease. Some STDs manifest themselves after a long time so a person can think that he / she is healthy but it is not. HIV can appear in a few weeks in the form of fever, swollen lymph nodes, and other unpleasant symptoms. Then they go away, but after a few years new symptoms of immunodeficiency come back with renewed vigor. HIV is gradually transformed into AIDS.

We do not think we should explain the danger of AIDS, as this is well-known information. Chlamydia can be asymptomatic, but it can lead to miscarriage in women.

Therefore, do not risk your health if you do not have a regular and healthy partner. Clear your mind of myths and use condoms.

Explanation of Itch

General Information

Itch is an specific unpleasant feeling causing a demand to scratch the damaged area. It is not an independent disease but only a symptom which witnesses about derm helminthiasis, central nervous system and inner organs damages.

Types

itch_localAccording to the spread there are two types of itch that’s local itch and pruritus generalisatus. Local itch can be considered to be head skin itch, on wrist and hand skin. Head skin itch is a subjective sensation, it is difficult to estimate its intensity.

It can be expressed and imperceptible, according to the time span it may be constant and temporary.

Mechanism

The mechanism of skin itch development isn’t so simple as can seem at first sight. In its basis a chain from consecutive nervous and antibody responses in skin, and the set of the most different factors can provoke the appearance of itch.

It is known that pain and itch are perceived by the same receptors in skin.

Biologically active substances released by leukocytes and other cells of the immune system play the main role in itch appearance. Other words itch may be called inflammatory mediators.

Causes

Local reasons of skin itch are:

The reasons of pruritus generalisatus are the following:

Before implementing recommendations about skin itch treatment, it is necessary to exclude factors which cause its excessive dryness namely washing hands with hot water, wearing synthetic clothes, emotional experiences, intake of some drugs. Only after excluding all these events you may identify whether the itch is a real disease and you may find the treatment to it.

At infectious and parasitic skin damages it is necessary to influence the reason causing a skin itch directly. These are local antiseptics and antibiotics, means from true lice and helminths. At an allergic skin itch origin antihistamines, as for the use inside, and external forms in the form of lotion, ointments, gel may be applied. The doctor can appoint glucocorticoids for local applying to a short period.

Trends in Clinical Management Cost-Containment Strategies

Within both private and public insurance programs, there are trends in strategies that attempt to optimize health outcomes while containing costs. Private sector initiatives dominate; however, many of these same strategies have been implemented within Medicaid managed care and SCHIP programs in various ways.

Pay for Performance

The new shift to a consumer-driven focus, the increasing availability of quality performance data, and a renewed focus on achieving measurable quality improvement have spurred a renewed focus on using financial incentives to reward providers delivering higher quality care. Incentive arrangements target a mix of process and structural measures, with a smaller role for patient satisfaction measures. One study identified 37 pay-for-performance initiatives nationally. Current initiatives are varied in focus, ranging from programs centered around process measures, such as the Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set diabetes or mammogram screening, to patient experience measures, clinical outcome measures, such as complications or mortality, or structural measures, such as the Leapfrog measures for hospitals or information systems to track chronically ill patients. The three largest pay-for-performance initiatives are the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) initiative, the Bridges to Excellence program, and the Leapfrog Group. IHA includes seven large plans that represent 60% of the California market. Bridges to Excellence is a multilateral effort that is backed by group of large employers to offer financial incentives for physicians to improve health-care quality in several target markets (ie, Boston, Cincinnati/Louisville, and Albany/ Schenectady). IHA and Bridges to Excellence are part of the $8.8 million Rewarding Results program, which is jointly funded by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the California Healthcare Foundation, with additional funding from the Commonwealth Fund. The Leapfrog Group is focused on improving patient safety by encouraging participating employers to reward hospitals that implement three selected safety measures (ie, computer physician order entry, evidence-based hospital referral, and ICU physician staffing).

There is some evidence that such incentives are affecting provider performance, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in New Hampshire, for example, which represents > 40% of the New Hampshire market, provided tiered financial incentives to providers (eg, those ranking in the top 25% of the network for a specific quality measure) based on performance for a number of Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set quality measures. Bonus payments to individual physicians ranged from $1,183 to > $15,000. Significant improvements in quality performance were realized. Immunization rates nearly tripled in 1 year, from 21% in 1991 to 58.5% in 2000, although a systematic study of the impact of pay for performance on health outcomes has yet to be conducted.

disease managementPlans are also beginning to use patient incentives, particularly within employer-sponsored health plans. Since 1996, the percentage of companies offering consumers financial incentive/disincentive programs increased from 34 to 42%. By 2004, 10% of companies provided incentives for at-risk individuals to participate in condition-management programs or to comply with recommended therapies, with a heavy focus on prescription drugs.

Disease Management

Another major strategy to improve the quality of care while controlling costs has been disease-management (DM) programs. In the 1990s, DM programs emerged as a population-based approach. In population-based programs,

“practitioners accept responsibility for the health outcomes and utilization of all members of a targeted group [such as health plan enrollees with a triggering diagnosis]

and not just individuals who seek treatment during a given period to identify persons at risk, to intervene with specific programs of care, and to measure clinical and other outcomes, particularly for patients with chronic conditions in which patient self-management plays a large role.

The most popular consumer incentive is reduced or waived copayments for mail-order prescriptions (17%). Other popular approaches include reducing costs for drugs to treat targeted conditions (8%), supporting upfront incentives for high-risk employees (4%), and supporting lower annual premiums to participants (4%). In 2005, of the 83% of companies that used DM programs, 30% of these companies offered incentives to encourage employee participation in wellness programs. DM or care-management programs have also begun to proliferate among Medicaid programs. In FY 2005, the number of states that developed new or expanded DM programs totaled 26. For FY 2006, 25 states reported plans to either pilot a new program or expand existing pro-grams.

Many states have chosen pharmaceutical management as their population-based DM focus due to the dramatic increases in prescription drug costs. Others have entered into multiple-disease arrangements with DM organizations. Such programs are largely driven by guaranteed costs savings, with perhaps 20% of financial incentives tied to clinical indicators. States are still experimenting in search of optimal models. North Carolina, for example, started with adding a targeted asthma initiative and later added diabetes on to its primary care case management program, paying primary care physicians an additional increment for disease management.

This program reported success in terms of both clinical indicators and cost.

The Virginia Health Outcomes Partnership, which provided training to physicians in the Medicaid primary care case management program to better manage asthma care saved the state > $659 per physician trained; nevertheless, the state opted to shift to an outsourced population-based DM model that focused on pharmaceutical management because it was simpler and cheaper to administer.
Electronic health recordInformation Technology and Electronic Health Records

Attention to and investment in information technology (IT) and electronic health records (EHRs) has been increasing in the past few years in both the public and private sectors. For example, Kaiser Permanente committed $1.8 billion to the implementation of its EHR system in 2003. The Veterans Health Administration Computerized Patient Record System was released in 1997 and is now used at > 1,300 sites, while the Department of Defense Composite Health Care System II project, to be implemented at 100 hospitals and 500 clinics, is scheduled for completion by 2006. To date, Medicaid programs have not been central players in the IT phenomenon, although some states are becoming more involved in IT initiatives. A national survey of physician organizations found clinical IT most strongly associated with the use of care-management strategies. An asthma-specific initiative, which followed Medicaid-insured children with asthma in 85 practice sites in five health plans across three states, found IT systems to be the single most deficient area among all processes of care for asthma.

A recent study of health IT adoption among community health centers found that health centers serving the greatest number of poor and uninsured were significantly less likely to have an electronic medical record. Given the importance of health IT capacity in effectively managing patient care, slower health IT adoption among providers that serve disproportionately low-income and minority patients may exacerbate health disparities.

My Canadian Pharmacy share about Health and Abundance

The main two folks topics are popular to be discussed concerning two statements “health” and “abundance”. These are two main components of successful life .
