Why is flu vaccine important?


xray.jpgChicken Pox is a very contagious illness that strikes millions of Americans each year, with pneumonia as the most common complication in high-risk groups.  Influenza, unlike the common cold, has a swift onset of severe symptoms beginning with two to seven days of fever, headache, muscle aches, extreme fatigue, runny nose and sore throat, and a cough that is often severe and may last seven days or more.  Information about influenza disease in King County will be updated at 206-296-4949 and on our website at www.metrokc.gov/health as the season progresses.

 


 

 

New Equipment


During a week of gift giving and receiving, The Freeport Med Center on alphateam.jpgMonday took receipt of a rather large package – tipping the scales at over 13,000 pounds.


The magnet for the hospital’s new Toshiba Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine arrived by flatbed truck on Monday and was hoisted in to the hospital’s replacement facility, located at 1400 West Main Street. The hospital will officially open on March 13, 2006.


The magnet was delivered this week so that the east outside wall – intentionally left unfinished in order to bring the magnet in to the hospital – can now be finished. United Technical Support Services out of Aurora, OH, delivered and installed the magnet.

Looking for cancer before a person has symptoms can help to find cancer at earlier stages and can usually be treated more effectively.
 
There are various treatment options for prostate cancer.  A prostatectomy is a surgery that removes all or part of the prostate.  Typically, men with early-stage disease or cancer that is confined to the prostate will undergo a radical prostatectomy.
  
The procedure offers numerous benefits over the conventional open prostatectomy, including:
      • Less pain for patients
      • Faster recovery times
      • Shorter hospital stays
      • Less blood loss
      • Less internal scaring
      • Quicker return of urinary control and sexual function
 
Recently it was announced that the da Vinci® prostatectomy is the most often utilized treatment of prostate cancer in the United States.
