New Orleans health care workers hopeful as they line up for the coronavirus vaccine | Coronavirus

Just an hour after the first coronavirus vaccines arrived at Ochsner Health’s Jefferson Highway main campus, they sat in glass vials in front of pharmacist Mona Moghareh.

Cameras livestreamed the moment. A small crowd and the Gov. John Bel Edwards looked on. 

“It’s an honor,” said Moghareh, one of Ochsner’s inpatient pharmacists who works on the hospital floor. She’d been waiting for this day for a long time. 

“Is that considered a small needle for a vaccine?” Edwards asked.

Regina King Is Fighting to End Racial Inequities in Skin Care

Regina King: Vaseline knows how passionate I am about young, Black girls being invisible and how I want to empower them. So our conversations started as a mutual desire for a philanthropic component. Then the pandemic hit, followed by the uprisings around Breonna Taylor’s, George Floyd’s, and Ahmaud Arbery’s killings, so together we decided it was important to shift the discussion toward topics that were pressing. 

What we found was that the systemic issues that already existed in our country were being magnified as a result of the coronavirus—and the people protesting were risking their health to change the system. We wanted to do something that addresses these disparities, and that’s how our project evolved into equity in skin care.

I’m very lucky to have access to a dermatologist. And while there are a lot of people who do have access to one, either their derm isn’t Black nor are

Singing to preterm infants during kangaroo care reduces maternal anxiety and supports the mother-infant relationship

Premature births are stressful experiences that increase the risk of anxiety for mothers and may hinder the development of interaction between mother and infant. A new study indicates that the combination of singing and kangaroo care boosts the wellbeing of the mothers of preterm infants, also making it easier for them to establish a connection with their baby.

When a child is born before term, the mother and baby are physically separated due to the hospital care required by the latter. Mothers of preterm infants often experience stress in the hospital, and their worry for the baby’s survival may be considerable. This heightens their risk of anxiety and depression, particularly among mothers of infants whose birth weight is very low or who are born very early. Maternal stress and depressive symptoms can also pose a risk to the infant’s further development.

When a child is born before term, the mother and baby are physically separated due to the hospital care required by the latter. Mothers of preterm infants often experience stress in the hospital, and their worry for the baby’s survival may be considerable. This heightens their risk of anxiety and depression, particularly among mothers of infants whose birth weight is very low or who are born very early. Maternal stress and depressive symptoms can also pose a risk to the infant’s further development.

Researchers from the University of Helsinki contributed to a study investigating the effects of singing during kangaroo care on maternal wellbeing and the mother-infant relationship after preterm birth.

In kangaroo care, the preterm infant is placed on the parent’s chest to establish skin-to-skin contact. Due to its developmentally supporting outcomes, the method has consolidated its position as part of the standard care for preterm infants in Finland,

1 in 8 US hospitals out of intensive care space

CLOSE

Multiple regions in the U.S. are reporting that hospitals are filled to capacity with COVID patients. (Dec. 1)

AP Domestic

Hospitals from West Texas to the upper Midwest are facing dire shortages of beds for critically ill coronavirus patients as the post-holiday surge shows no sign of relenting, new data shows.

About 1 in 8 U.S. hospitals had little or no intensive care unit space available last week. And experts say the number of hospitals struggling to accommodate the nation’s sickest patients likely will increase following another week of record COVID-19 cases.

The federal government this week released a sweeping database showing a one-week average number of COVID-19 patients in hospitals nationwide. It’s the first time the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provided such detailed information on nearly 5,000 U.S. hospitals since the pandemic began. 

The absence of hospital-level information has been a blind spot in the

Amid Pandemic, Scientists Reassess Routine Medical Care

Now the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium, a federally funded research group, is prospectively collecting data during the pandemic from more than 800,000 women and nearly 100 mammography centers across the country.

Millions of women missed their regular mammograms in the first wave of the pandemic.

Before the pandemic, about 100,000 women had screening mammograms each day in the United States. In the spring, nearly all mammogram centers shut down for three months, and even though they began opening again in the summer, it was not until October that nearly all were operating normally. That may change with the surge of new coronavirus infections, but for now, women who want mammograms can get them.

Clinics had to slow the rate at which they do mammograms because of Covid-19 precaution requirements, including physical distancing and cleaning of equipment between exams. But they are making up for the delays by keeping longer hours
