NATIONAL STROKE ASSOCIATION COMEBACK 5K
SUPPORT THE NATIONAL STROKE ASSOCIATION AND
CELEBRATE THE JOURNEY TO COME BACK STRONG AFTER STROKE.
ABOUT THE COMEBACK TRAIL
The National Stroke Association's Comeback Trail 5K is a national event celebrating the physical, mental, and spiritual journey of stroke recovery.
Every step you take and every dollar you raise for the Comeback Trail will provide hope after stroke to the seven million stroke survivors in the United States. Join us, as we raise awareness and funds to support the ongoing needs of the stroke community.

¿Qué es la dermatitis atópica?
Es un trastorno de la piel que consiste en erupciones que producen irritación.
Se debe a una reacción (parecido a una alergia) en la piel que genera hinchazón y enrojecimiento.
Es más común en bebés de entre 2 y 6 meses.
¿El Factor de transferencia sirve para la dermatitis atópica?
La principal función del factor de transferencia es modular el Sistema Inmune manteniéndolo en equilibrio.
Una respuesta inmunitaria eficaz ayuda a la prevención de la dermatitis atópica.
La dermatitis atópica afecta aproximadamente al 10% de todos los bebés y niños. Aunque la causa exacta se desconoce, esta enfermedad es resultado de una combinación de condiciones hereditarias y otras cotidianas. Por ello, para contrarrestar la dermatitis atópica es importante utilizar humectantes, antihistamínicos, esteroides tópicos, antibióticos, y sobre todo inmunomoduladores, tal como el Factor de Transferencia.
Infective endocarditis (IE) is an infection of the cardiac endothelium, frequently affecting the valves. It can be classified as either acute vs. subacute, native valve vs. prosthetic valve, or right sided vs. left sided. When there are accumulations at the valves, or leaflet vegetations, they are generally composed of platelet-fibrin thombi, WBCs, and bacteria.
There are many risk factors for developing IE and they can be placed into different risk categories: High (e.g., prosthetic cardiac valve, previous IE), moderate (e.g., hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, other congenital cardiac defects), low/no risk (e.g., ischemic heart disease, MV prolapse). In addition to these risk factors for IE, running the risk for bacteremia (bacterial infection in circulation) is of particular concern. The following increase the risk for bacteremia with IE: Intravenous drug user (IVDU), indwelling venous catheter, poor dentition, DM, hemodialysis, and HIV. In terms of which valve is infected, it tends to be more common with targeting as follows: MV >> AV > TV > PV.
1.Systemic – fever, chills, rigors, weight loss, anorexia, weakness, night sweats
2.Cardiac – dyspnea, chest pain, clubbing, CHF signs, regurgitant murmur
3.Embolic/Vascular – splinter hemorrhages, petechiae, Janeway lesions, H/A (mycotic aneurysm), focal neurological signs (CNS emboli), splenomegaly, flank pain (renal emboli)
4.Immune Complex – Osler’s nodes, arthritis, glomerulonephritis, Roth’s spots
This is done by using the Modified Duke Criteria, which can lead to a diagnosis through various combinations of major and minor criteria. Generally, the criteria relies on blood cultures, evidence of endocardial involvement (e.g., via echocardiogram), new murmurs (auscultation), predisposing conditions, and various symptoms/phenomena.
Includes blood cultures, CBC, ESR, RF, BUN/Cr, urinalysis, urine C&S, ECG.
-Empiric antibiotic therapy – vancomycin + gentamicin OR ceftriaxone for native valve; vancomycin + gentamicin + cefepime + rifampin for prosthetic valve
-Adjust to targeted antibiotic therapy based on valve, organism and sensitivities
I get a lot of new and existing clients asking me to provide letters for an Emotional Support Animal (ESA) so that they can keep a pet while living in a residential community that doesn’t allow pets. An ESA letter is basically a “prescription” from a therapist, and like medical doctors, I don’t just “prescribe a medication” without true necessity. I wanted to share this video in order to depict what a REAL support animal is TRAINED to do, and what it looks like when a client TRULY needs an ESA. .
In this video, a woman is shown to begin suffering a panic attack, and the trained dog immediately recognizes the signs of an attack in order to help its owner return to a functioning state. Without the help of this animal, the owner would have likely suffered a full blown panic attack, leading to potential hospitalization and inability to perform routine duties — in this case, catch a flight. In this woman’s situation, her dog gives her the opportunity to effectively function in a world that’s built for people that do not regularly have panic attacks. .
When clients request ESA letters from me, I require a detailed evaluation of their needs to determine whether regular functioning is indeed impaired without the presence of a service dog. The harm of providing ESA letters to those that just simply want to own a pet is that residential communities become much more stringent in their ESA policies, resulting in more hurdles for those that truly need an ESA.
