Critical Care Providers Should Know

The state of Florida is ranked number 33 out of 50 in terms of the overall health of its citizens by the United Health Foundation. Some of the problems that Florida faces are the number of people with diabetes, the number of people who have taken sick days, the number of people who have heart disease or have had a heart attack, and the number of people who have suffered from a stroke.

Even though Florida does have its health issues, there are some areas in which the state is doing better than average in comparison to the rest of the nation. For example, more people in Florida, on average, regularly include fruits and vegetables in their diets. Also, there are fewer than average obese people in the state, and more people than average who regularly do physical activity. - 17.1% of the adult population in Florida reported being in fair to poor health - 17.1% of the population smoke - 27.2% of the population in Florida are obese - 21.3% of the adults in Florida are uninsured or underinsured - 10.4% of the population are diabetic - 30.9% of the adults in Florida reported high blood pressure - The life expectancy in Florida is 79.70 years

Every year from June 1 to October 1 is hurricane season in the state of Florida; during that time of year the Department of Health tends to emphasize hurricane preparedness including where to find shelters, when to evacuate, and how many supplies to have on hand in case a hurricane should make landfall. Medical providers should visit the Florida Department of Health website to learn about emergency protocols and procedures in case of a severe storm or natural disaster.

One of the major goals for the Florida Department of Health is to have a “tobacco free” state. The state has started an organization that is designed to educate parents and children as to the dangers of smoking. State representatives have gone to schools to give lectures, passed out posters to the dangers, and even started to air television commercials in the state to increase tobacco awareness.

About Florida

Whether you’re drawn to the tropical breeze along the Florida Keys and the swaying palms of Miami, or more to Disneyworld and Universal Orlando, Florida is filled with excellent tourist attractions and beautiful scenery.

The USA’s 27th state, Florida joined the Union in 1845. Tallahassee is the capital city. Here’s an interesting point about Miami – it’s the only U.S. metropolitan area bordered by two national parks. Everglades National Park offers great hiking and sights (watch out for the gators!) or you may choose to glide along in a glass-bottomed boat while visiting Biscayne National Park. Orlando, home to both Disneyworld and Universal Orlando, draws more annual tourists than any other amusement park destination in the country.

Much more than a glitzy tourist trap, Florida is home to many historic sites, discoveries, scientific research and activities. Ponce de Leon was the first Spanish explorer to land in Florida, near what is today St. Augustine. Traversing down the coast, Ponce de Leon reckoned with some rough waters before arriving in the area known today as Cape Canaveral (translation: “Cape of Currents”). Of course, since the infancy of the U.S. space program, Cape Canaveral has been America’s launch pad. Palm Beach and West Palm Beach offer numerous shopping, restaurant and upscale hotel destinations. The mockingbird is Florida’s state bird.

There have been many famous Floridians throughout history. Among their number are singers Pat Boone and Jim Morrison (talk about diversity!); actors Sidney Poitier, Butterfly McQueen, Faye Dunaway and Ben Vereen; Attorney General Janet Reno, and Osceola, leader of the Seminole Indian tribe. Florida is filled with many institutions of higher learning, including FSU, University of Central Florida, Florida International University, Broward College, Miami Dade College, and that barely scratches the surface of the various places where one may continue their educational experience. There are also many trade and technical institutions spread throughout the state, as well as a large number of private colleges and universities which are religiously affiliated.

Florida produces the most orange and grapefruit crops that are converted to juice products in the U.S. A beautiful state, Florida is ripe with variety!

CPR Saves Father from Seizure-Turned-Horror Accident

It is not uncommon for Lauren Bertke to assist in hands-only CPR through the phone. In the early Saturday morning, the public communications officer received a call for help from Vince Hogan, who is trying to revive his father from a seizure. Mercer Hogan had already stopped breathing and the 29-year-old son was frantic to get a pulse. He applied chest compressions according to the instructions of the 911 dispatcher. The paramedics arrived just in time to take over the CPR attempts and wheel the older Hogan to a hospital, where it was found out he suffered from a heart attack. The father is truly proud of his son and grateful for his efforts to keep him alive.

Firefighter Helps during a Holiday

For firefighter David Burnett, being on vacation doesn’t mean not helping when lives are in danger. He was out in the backyard for a cookout when they heard screams from the neighboring house. Even if Burnett didn’t hear them at first, a friend told him about the noise and he immediately rushed over to help. A six-foot fence didn’t stand in the way, as he easily got over it and found a 3-year-old girl next to the pool, blue and unconscious. Burnett immediately administered CPR and asked the girl’s father to call 911. The girl was able to breathe normally after being resuscitated and cried all the way to the hospital. Her recovery was fast, thanks to the holiday help extended by the firefighter.
