Memorial Day Safety Tips

Top 5 Safety Tips to Keep in Mind This Memorial Day Weekend.

 

This Memorial Day, we encourage you to join us in paying tribute to our fallen heroes. Traditionally this special celebration is reserved for those courageous men and women in uniform who died protecting our freedom and way of life.

To all our heroes and their families, we are eternally grateful.

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, and everyone is eager to go out and have as much fun as possible. However, small oversights can turn into agonizing moments, at Altus ER Centers we are committed to help our communities stay safe, and therefore we have prepared a small list of Memorial Day Safety Tips to help you and your family enjoy this weekend.

Memorial Day Safety Tip #1

Food Safety

 

The weather around this time of year is perfect for a picnic or outdoor grilling. To avoid the risk of food poisoning, we recommend:

  • That perishable foods be refrigerated within 2 hours of purchase, if the temperature outside is 90°F or higher, food should be chilled within 1 hour.
  • While grilling or out on a picnic keep uncooked foods in a cooler.
  • To avoid cross contamination, keep meats separate from other perishables.
  • Cover food to avoid insects from depositing germs.

Memorial Day Safety Tip #2

Water Safety

 

National Safe Boating Week coincides with Memorial Day Weekend as a lot of people are expected to hit the waterways.  Even if you do not plan to be on a boat, there are some standard Memorial Day Safety Tips to keep in mind, in order to avoid a tragic accident:

  • Wear a US Coast Guard approved life jacket that fits properly whenever you are on a boat.
  • Avoid alcohol when swimming, boating or tubing.
  • Designate an adult watcher/lifeguard to keep an eye on children in pools, at the beach, rivers or even hot tubs.
  • Never swim alone and try to stay within eyesight of a lifeguard station.
  • Do not go swimming, tubing or boating after sunset.

Memorial Day Safety Tip #3

Grill/Fire Safety

 

Emergency care centers see their share of burn victims because of unsafe grilling or bonfire practices. If your weekend plans include grilling or sitting near an open fire, please keep these Memorial Day Safety Tips in mind:

  • Never leave a grill or fire unattended, be mindful of the wind and extinguish all fires completely.
  • Do not grill indoors, keep grills, bonfires and fire pits away from low hanging branches and materials that can easily catch fire.
  • Make sure your grill is properly cleaned before using it, clogged gas burners, and leftover grease can cause a fire to spiral out of control within seconds.
  • When grilling, use the long handle utensils made especially for barbequing and keep an extinguisher nearby.
  • Never add starter fuel to already ignited charcoal & ALWAYS keep children and pets away from the grill and fire pit.

Memorial Day Safety Tip #4

Safe Sun Exposure

 

Here in Texas, it tends to get really hot. An important Memorial Day Safety Tip is to protect yourself and your family members from extended sun exposure to avoid sunburns or a heat stroke.

  • Wear SFP 15 or higher sunscreen, apply it 30 minutes before exposure and reapply every 2 hours.
  • Use sunglasses and a hat to protect your eyes and always drink plenty of water while celebrating outdoors.
  • If you or a family member feels faint or nauseous, move them to a cool place immediately, if necessary apply cold compresses to the back of their neck and forehead to help lower their body temperature.
  • If you have children, schedule their outdoor activities in the early morning or late afternoon, do not leave them unsupervised on a hot day.

Memorial Day Safety Tip #5

Travel Safely

 

This is one the busiest and dangerous travel weekends of the year, follow these Memorial Day Safety Tips to ensure your family’s safety:

  • Always wear seat belts and make sure child car seats are properly installed.
  • Have your car serviced before a long trip.
  • Plan your trip beforehand and give yourself extra travel time.
  • Never drink and drive or allow yourself or anyone else to get into a car with someone who has been drinking.

Most Common Food Allergies

Most Common Food Allergies

It is vital to get to the the most common food allergies to help avoid an emergency.  When we think about food allergies, we tend to limit them to peanuts, shellfish, and gluten, however, there is a long list of food allergy triggers, and because symptoms tend to mild in most cases you may not know you are experiencing an allergic reaction.

Food allergies are a lot more common than we think, this condition affects some 15 million Americans especially children, according to statistics 1 in every 13 kids in America has a food allergy, and every 3 minutes a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room.

As part of Altus Emergency Center’s educational efforts during Food Allergy Action Month, we have compiled a list of the most common food allergies and their symptoms, to help you recognize this potentially deadly condition.

What are Food Allergies

Like other allergic reactions, food allergies are an abnormal immune response; they happen when the immune system wrongfully identify certain proteins found in food as harmful.

The severity of the allergic reaction ranges from mild symptoms to life-threatening ones, and it can be triggered even by very small amounts of the problem food.

In most instances, the symptoms of an allergic reaction happen a few minutes after exposure, but they can also manifest a few hours later, the most common allergic reaction symptoms include:

 

  • – Swelling of tongue, mouth, or face
  • – Itchy rash
  • – Hives
  • – Difficulty breathing
  • – Low blood pressure
  • – Nausea and vomiting
  • – Diarrhea
Common Food Allergies-Altus-ER

Most Common Food Allergies

Because symptoms can manifest hours after the exposure, sometimes the cause of the allergic reaction is not easily recognized, and if the symptoms are mild most people may ignore them.

The following list includes the most common food allergies, however, there are many more triggers, if you suspect you may have a food allergy, schedule an appointment with a specialist to determine which foods are harmful to you.

 

Peanut Allergy

Peanuts are one of the food allergens most commonly associated with anaphylaxis, a sudden and potentially deadly condition that requires immediate emergency medical treatment.

Allergic reactions to peanuts are one of the most common and deadly food allergies, it affects 1 in every 500 individuals and is responsible for more than half of all deaths from food-related allergic reactions.

Symptoms

  • – Itchy skin or hives that can show in small spots or large welts
  • – Itchy or tingling sensation in the mouth or throat
  • – Nausea
  • – Runny or congested nose
  • – Anaphylaxis

Symptoms include

– Hives and Skin Rash

– Stuffy or runny nose

– Headaches

– Asthma

Allergy Triggers to Avoid

Allergy Triggers to Avoid

National Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month

Since 1984, May is National Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month.

These two conditions are often overlooked and not given the importance they deserve. However, according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), asthma affects more than 24 million people in the United States, including more than 6 million children.

Additionally, allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness, with more than 50 million Americans suffering from allergies each year.

Why Is May National Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month?

Declaring an observance month is never random. May happens to be the peak month for allergies. Asthma and allergies often go hand in hand, so it’s not unusual for someone with asthma to also suffer from allergies.

There is currently no cure for either of these conditions, but educating patients and the public about them can help manage them.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Asthma and Allergies

People can suffer from asthma or allergies, or both. Many myths surround these conditions, so as part of Altus Emergency Centers’ commitment to educate and prevent different health issues, we would like to share some facts.

Asthma facts:

  • Asthma can be hereditary, but it can also affect people who have other allergic conditions and anyone exposed to polluted air, tobacco smoke, or viral respiratory infections at a young age.
  • Overweight and obese patients are at a greater risk of asthma.
  • Symptoms can include cough, wheeze, shortness of breath, and chest tightness.
  • Medications can help manage asthma allowing patients to enjoy an active life.
  • Weather conditions such as extremely dry, wet, or windy weather can worsen an asthma condition.
  • If not managed adequately, asthma can lead to death

Allergy Facts

  • People can suffer from different types of allergies; food allergies, eczema, and hay fever (rhinitis) are just a few examples.
  • Symptoms from allergic rhinitis, commonly known as hay fever, include sneezing, stuffy or runny nose, itching of the nose, and watery eyes. This can be seasonal or perennial (year-round).
  • Allergies are often hereditary.
  • Allergies can appear at any age, and they can also disappear for some time and return.
  • Although most cases of allergies present mild symptoms, sometimes an allergy can be life-threatening, causing an extreme immune reaction known as anaphylaxis which puts the person into shock and can significantly impair their breathing.  This type of allergic reaction requires immediate medical attention even if the patient receives epinephrine and feels better.
  • Knowing which allergy triggers to avoid is crucial.

Common Allergy and Asthma Triggers to Avoid

  • Tobacco smoke: if you suffer from allergies or asthma, you should avoid smoking and secondhand smoke
  • Outdoor air pollution: pollution originating from factories, cars, and burning wood can trigger respiratory allergies and asthma attacks. Try to avoid places with high pollution levels or plan your activities when air pollution levels are lower.
  • Dust mites: These microscopic bugs that live in beds and couches are big triggers. Try to use allergen-proof mattress and pillowcase covers, wash your bedding weekly, and vacuum carpets, rugs, sofas, regularly
  • Allergens in pet fur: unfortunately, many people are allergic to the allergens of their furry pets. If you know you are allergic, try finding an allergy-friendly breed, bathe and groom them regularly, and use an air cleaner with a HEPA filter.
  • Mold: check your house for mold, which is common in damp areas. Eliminate it to help control your attacks.
  • Disinfectants and cleaning products: avoid overuse of cleaning products. Choose products with a mild scent, and if possible, avoid aerosol presentations. Do not mix disinfectant products. Choose products that are less likely to trigger your allergies or asthma, such as products with hydrogen peroxide (no more than 3%) or ethanol (ethyl alcohol). Avoid using bleach.
  • Dust: avoid disturbing dust but keep surfaces at your home and work as free from it as possible.
  • Food allergies:  make sure to inform the people who handle your food about any food allergies you have.

When to Go to the ER

A severe allergy or an asthma crisis requires immediate medical attention. Go to the nearest Altus Emergency Center immediately if you or someone you know experiences:

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty speaking
  • Very rapid breathing, coughing, or wheezing
  • Chest pain
  • Bluish color in the face, lips, or nails
  • Fainting
  • Vomiting
  • Swelling of the mouth, tongue, or throat.

Altus Emergency Centers are open 24/7 in their four locations: Baytown, Lake Jackson, Lumberton, Waxahachie. Severe allergic reactions and asthma attacks are time-sensitive emergencies; our minimal wait times and highly qualified medical professionals can help save lives.

Control Asthma & Live a Better Life!

Bring Asthma Under Control

We are in peak season for asthma sufferers, so we thought this was the perfect time to educate and raise awareness of this chronic and potentially life-threatening illness which affects over 1.5 million Texans according to the CDC.

The sad reality is there is no cure for asthma, but, not everything is bad news, people can lead normal happy lives and many deaths are preventable with proper treatment and care. Read on for tips on how to control asthma and improve your quality of life.

How to Control Asthma

What is Asthma? 

Asthma is a chronic lung disease that causes episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, and nighttime or early morning coughing. Asthma is a chronic illness, it means you always have it, however, there are asthma attack triggers, that can cause the symptoms to worsen.  Getting to know the triggers is the first step to control asthma whether it’s for you or a loved one.

 

What Causes an Asthma Attack?

The exact cause of the illness has not been discovered yet, but, it is known that the airways of people who have asthma are very sensitive and tend to overreact to substances you are allergic to or find irritating.

When this happens, the airways get swollen and narrower making it hard to breathe, when the symptoms become worse than usual, this is known as an asthma attack. In severe cases, the airways can close so much that vital organs don’t get enough oxygen, and this is when the disease can be life-threatening.

The good thing is you can control your asthma by knowing the warning signs of an asthma attack, staying away from known triggers, and following your doctor’s advice.

How to Control Asthma

Common Asthma Triggers

People react to different allergens, but in general, these are the most common asthma triggers:

  • – Air Pollution: Air quality has a significant impact on the quality of life of people with asthma, industrial and automobile emissions are known triggers.
  • – Mold: Inhaling or breathing in mold can cause an asthma attack, and certain types of mold can cause other respiratory problems.
  • – Tobacco Smoke: Being around people who smoke can cause an asthma attack from breathing second-hand smoke.
  • – Cockroach Allergen: We know, gross! But it has been proven that cockroaches and their droppings are responsible for asthma attacks in many instances.
  • – Dust Mites: Dust mites are present in almost every home, but they don’t present a danger to all, however, if you or a loved one suffers from asthma you should know that dust mites can trigger an attack.
How to Control Asthma

Ways to Control Asthma

We don’t lose hope that someday scientists will find a cure for asthma, but until then the best way to improve your quality of life is by keeping it under control.

 

#1 Learn which Medicines Work Best

This is a trial and error method that you and your doctor need to work together on, there are different types of asthma medications and for some patients, one medication will be enough to control their symptoms, others might need a combination of medications.

 

#2 Take Your Asthma Controller Medicines as Prescribed

Controller medicines are those designed to make your airways less sensitive to asthma triggers, they help prevent asthma attacks or make them less severe when they do occur. The one drawback of these medications is that it may take 2-3 weeks for them to start working, so you need to take them every day even if you are feeling fine.

 

#3 Always Have a Rescue Inhaler with You

Having these small, easy to use portable devices are designed to help you breathe better quickly. For this reason, you should always carry one with you in case you experience an asthma episode.

How to Control Asthma

#4 Learn to Recognize Your Early Warning Signs

If there is one good thing about this illness, its that it gives you clues as to when you are about to get an attack, these symptoms include:

  • – A Headache
  • – Itchy Throat
  • – Itchy Eyes
  • – A Runny Nose
  • – Chest Tightness
  • – Anxiety

#5 Know Your Triggers

Preventing your triggers is vital to control asthma.  Speak to your doctor to help you recognize your asthma triggers, once you know what can cause an asthma attack, you can work towards staying clear of these.

 

#6 Create an Asthma Action Plan

You should never ignore your asthma symptoms; many deaths are caused by patients who think their symptoms are not severe enough to go to the ER for treatment.

Our last recommendation to control asthma is to create an asthma action plan with your doctor.  This plan should help you determine when to use your rescue inhaler, when to call your doctor and when to come in to visit one of our Altus Emergency centers for treatment.

Flood Safety Tips

Flood Safety Tips.  Protect Yourself During and After a Flood.

Water is a source of life; however, during a flood that same water can be deadly. According to the CDC’s website, more deaths occur due to flooding than any other storm-related hazard.

Mother nature is unpredictable, but there are ways to protect yourself and those you love during a flood.

What to Do During a Flood?

The real danger starts once the floodwaters have risen. To protect yourself, please remember:

  • Not to drive through flooded areas or standing water. You don’t know how deep the water is and it’s important to realize you could lose control of your vehicle in as little as 6-inches of water
  • Don’t use flood water for bathing, brushing your teeth, washing or prepare foods, or wash dishes. Under no circumstance should drink flood water as it is most likely contaminated
  • Only drink water from the faucet after your local authorities have said it is safe to drink.
  • During a water advisory, you should only drink bottled. For cooking only use bottled, boiled, or treated water
  • If any of your food supplies come in contact with floodwaters, don’t eat them
  • If you are using a generator, make sure to place them at least 20-feet from any windows, doors, or vents to prevent accidental carbon monoxide poisoning

Flood Cleanup Tips

The cleanup process is perhaps where most flood-related injuries and illnesses occur. Infectious organisms might have contaminated floodwaters. The most common microorganisms found in standing floodwaters are:

  • coli
  • Salmonella
  • Shigella
  • Hepatitis A virus
  • Agents of typhoid
  • Paratyphoid
  • Tetanus

Floodwaters could also be contaminated by hazardous agricultural, industrial, or petrochemical components.

To help keep you safe, the staff of Altus Emergency Centers in Lumberton has several health-related tips to share with you:

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Keep Children Safe

During the cleanup process, keep a close eye on your kids.

  • Don’t let them play in or near floodwater
  • Make sure they wash their hands often or at the very least before each meal
  • Disinfect toys by soaking them in a solution made from 2-ounces of bleach per 1-gallon of water, let toys air dry after you have disinfected them
  • Throw away any stuffed or soft toys that may have been contaminated by the floodwaters

Food Safety

If you have power or are using a generator to power your appliances, then keep your refrigerator as close to 41°F as possible. If your electricity is out, you should know that your refrigerator will only keep your food cold for four or six hours if left unopened.

Additionally:

  • Without power, your freezer will keep your food frozen for one day or two days maximum if left unopened
  • Canned foods are safe to eat. However, you should remove the labels and wash the sealed cans with either warm water and detergent or a mixture made from 1-tablespoon of bleach per 1-gallon of water. You can relabel the cans after washing them
  • Throw away any canned food if you notice the can is rusted, pitted, bulging, or leaking
  • Wash your Tupperware and other kitchen items in a solution of bleach and water to disinfect them
  • Throw away any food that might have come in contact with floodwater unless it comes in a sealed can

Water Safety

  • Follow the guidelines issue by local authorities concerning the use of tap water
  • Boil water for at least one minute to kill any bacteria
  • You can disinfect water by adding 1/8 of unscented household bleach to one gallon of water. You will need to let it rest for at least 30 minutes before you can use it
  • You can also add purifying-tablets to water instead of boiling or disinfecting it
  • If you have infants, don’t feed them formula made with treated water. Try using canned baby formula instead

Beware of Mold

  • Protect yourself from mold by wearing a face mask whenever you are cleaning an area where mold has grown
  • Open windows and doors or use fans to let the air help dry out your home or office. You should try to have all the surfaces cleaned within 24 to 48 hours to prevent mold from growing
  • If you encounter mold in your home, try cleaning it with a mixture of 1 cup of bleach per 1-gallon of water.
  • You should always wear gloves when cleaning moldy areas or working with bleach

Protect Yourself from Tetanus

Tetanus can enter the bloodstream through an open wound, even small ones. Tetanus can cause a condition known as lockjaw. This condition causes painful muscle tightening. When it attacks the jaw muscles, you won’t be able to open your mouth or swallow.

If you experience lockjaw, you should come to the Altus Emergency Center in Lumberton as soon as possible.

Treating Wounds

If you cut yourself while cleaning up after a flood, you need to wash the wound with soap and clean water thoroughly. Apply an antibiotic cream to the injury.

If you have not had a tetanus shot in the last ten years, you will need to get one. Additionally, if your wound is deep, severe, or becomes infected, you need to seek immediate medical attention.

High Blood Pressure Education Month – It Starts with Your Heart

Understanding High Blood Pressure

It Starts with Your Heart

May has been designated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as National High Blood Pressure Education Month.

Because of this, at Altus Emergency Centers we will focus our attention during this month on the education and prevention of high blood pressure in the communities we serve.

What is Blood Pressure?

Every time your heart beats it pumps blood through your arteries so it can transport oxygen and nutrients to the rest of your body.

As the blood moves, it pushes against the sides of the blood vessels. The strength of this pushing is your blood pressure.

Your blood pressure will rise and fall throughout the day, but if it stays high for a long time, it can damage your heart. High blood pressure also known as hypertension can cause heart attack, stroke and lead to other severe health problems.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Understanding Your Blood Pressure Reading

When a doctor or nurse takes your blood pressure, the reading consists of two numbers, which represent your systolic and diastolic blood pressures.

Systolic Blood Pressure: This is the highest level your blood pressure reaches when your heart beats.

Diastolic Blood Pressure: This is the lowest level your blood pressure reaches as your heart relaxes between beats.

Source American Heart Association

Alarming Facts of High Blood Pressure in America

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • 75 million American adults have high blood pressure that is 1 in 3 Americans
  • 1 in 3 adults has a condition known as prehypertension (higher than normal blood pressure but not yet in the high blood pressure range)
  • Only about 54% of hypertensive patients have their condition under control
  • High blood pressure is the primary or contributing cause of death for approximately 410,000 American’s a year, that is close to 1100 deaths a day
  • Between 30 and 32% of Texans ages 20 and older have high blood pressure

4 Things You May Not Know About High Blood Pressure

Here are some surprising facts about high blood pressure you may not have heard of:

1. There is a Link Between Hypertension and Dementia

Recent studies show a link between high blood pressure and an increased risk of dementia. The studies showed that having uncontrolled hypertension during midlife (45-65 years old) increased the risk of developing dementia later in life.

2. It’s Not an Old Folks Condition

High blood pressure can affect anyone regardless of age, gender and ethnicity. Statistics show that 1 in 4 men and nearly 1 in 5 women age 35-44 have high blood pressure.

 

3. Hypertension Usually Has No Symptoms

The condition is popularly known as the “silent killer” because it doesn’t always show symptoms like headaches or sweating.

The only sure way to know if you have high blood pressure or not is to have it checked regularly.

 

4. Many People with High Blood Pressure Don’t Know They Have It

The CDC estimates that as many as 11 million American’s suffer from high blood pressure and don’t know it, and as a result, are not being treated.

Tips to Prevent High Blood Pressure

At Altus Emergency Centers we believe preventing illnesses and accidents is the best policy. To reduce your risk of developing high blood pressure you should:

  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Exercise Regularly
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet
  • Reduce sodium (salt) in your diet
  • Limit the amount of alcohol you drink
  • Quit smoking
  • Cut back on caffeine
  • Reduce your stress
  • Monitor your blood pressure regularly
  • Speak to your doctor if you notice your blood pressure is higher than normal

What to Do During a Hypertensive Crisis

A hypertensive crisis or high blood pressure crisis happens when your blood pressure rises quickly and severely with readings of 180/120 or over.

If your blood pressure reaches 180/120 or over and you experience symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, back pain, numbness or weakness, changes in vision, or difficulties speaking, you are experiencing a hypertensive emergency and need to get to the nearest Altus ER Center for immediate medical attention.

 

At Altus Emergency Centers we have the best emergency doctors and registered nurses 24/7, they are trained to work under pressure and save lives. While we advocate for prevention, we are ready to treat hypertensive crisis and other high blood pressure-related medical emergencies.
