Critical Care Providers Should Know

The state of Ohio is currently ranked as the 36th healthiest state by the United Health Foundation, but there are many health issues that need to be addressed. Ohio has a high percentage of people who have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, or cancer, and who take a lot of physical and mental health days off of work. One health indicator in which the state of Ohio is performing above the national average is the number of people who follow a healthy diet. - 16.1% of the adult population of Ohio reports being in poor to fair health - 3% of adults in Ohio have suffered a stroke - 29.6% of adults have high cholesterol - 31.7% of the adults in Ohio have high blood pressure - 22.5% of adults in Ohio smoke - 29.7% of adults are obese - 10.1% of the adult population of Ohio are diabetic - The average life expectancy in Ohio is 77.52 years

The Ohio Department of Health is recognizing businesses that help provide or promote a healthy workplace. Each year, the state of Ohio holds a ceremony that recognizes the healthiest workplaces in the state. Ohio realizes that people spend many hours at their workplace, so it would make sense for that place to be as healthy as possible. In order to be recognized as a healthy workplace, the place of business must have a wellness program for employees.

In 2007, accidental overdoses on prescription medication became the leading cause of injury death in the state of Ohio, even greater than car crashes or other accidents. In order to help combat these fatalities, the Ohio Department of Health has started to educate the general public on prescription drugs and the damage that they can do if they are incorrectly used. The state has taken out radio and television ads as well as offered lectures. Since 2009, the state of Ohio has seen a slow but steady decline in the number of prescription drug-related deaths.

About Ohio

From rolling hills to flat plains and sandy beachfronts, Ohio is a combination of landscapes. The eastern border of the state starts as rolling plateaus and slowly settles into flat plains toward the west. The state’s northern border is made up of a long beachfront, which runs along Lake Erie. At the other end of the state, the majestic Ohio River cuts a curving trail east to west across Ohio’s southern boundary.

Topography made Ohio a spacious, open, inviting realm. Geographically and historically, it lies in the mainstream of America. More than 11 million people live in Ohio. Though they have different beliefs and traditions, they also have plenty in common. Millions of years ago, water covered Ohio. It eventually drained off, leaving behind swamps. Then came the Ice Age, when glaciers up to 8,000 feet thick covered two-thirds of Ohio. The fertile soil of Ohio has given rise to acres of rich farmland.

Ohio’s museums contain amazing exhibits with artifacts that tell the story of the state. Around the state, cities host business and industry, along with centers for research, health care, the arts, numerous fine restaurants, unique overnight accommodations, and transportation. Small towns cherish their own traditions, and parts of southern Ohio reflect people’s Appalachian roots. In Amish communities, people still work their farms with horse-drawn plows. Columbus is now home to thousands of immigrants from Somalia.

Ohio is blessed with abundant rivers and streams. In the north, the Maumee, Sandusky, Vermilion, and Cuyahoga rivers flow into Lake Erie. Most waters in the south, including the Great Miami, Scioto, Hocking, and Muskingum rivers, drain into the Ohio River.

Ohio has four well-marked seasons. Winters can be harsh in northeast Ohio, which receives most of the state’s annual 2.5 feet of snow. Spring, often brief, is usually rainy. About 38 inches of precipitation fall yearly. Summer brings thunderstorms, often severe ones.

Ohio has been called the westernmost of the eastern states and the easternmost of the western states. Historically, it was influenced by the settled qualities of the east while embracing the social improvisation of the West.

Hudson Alumni Saves Coworker with CPR

Paul Ferder, general manager of Kent Mold & Manufacturing, showed he was a good CPR student. He remembered his CPR class from 13 years ago at Hudson High School to save the life of a co-worker who had collapsed due to a heart attack. Other employees had called to Paul when Wilford Auvil collapsed while repairing a window at the shop. Paul saw what was happening, went to call 911 and then returned and began CPR. Ferder performed compressions for 10 minutes until EMS arrived and set up their equipment, asking Ferder to continue until they were ready. Auvill is now recovering.
