Infinity Linear Accelerator Enhances Cancer Treatment at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas
 
02:28
Radiation therapy is the science of accurately localizing a cancer in the human body, and then precisely delivering a radiation beam to the cancer. It sets up a chemical reaction within the cancer, and the abnormal cells eventually die. Imaging doing that with more precision, but with less radiation exposure and treatment time! "The Infinity Linear Accelerator is an exciting new piece of equipment that allows us to fine-tune the type of radiation that we can deliver to the patient," said Jerry Barker, M.D., a radiation oncologist at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. "We can accurately control direction of the radiation, but also the precise depth." Texas Health Dallas is the first hospital in the country to have the new Infinity Linear Accelerator system. Treatment using the linear accelerator can be given a lot quicker, so patient doesn't have to lie on the treatment table as long, Barker said. This translates into more accurate treatment delivery. "Any time you can deliver the radiation treatment in a more precise fashion, which is what the new Infinity Linear Accelerator does, it translates into more accurate treatment," Barker said. "And that benefits the patient." Texas Health Resources www.TexasHealth.org 1-877-THR-WELL

Simple, noninvasive tests can indicate vascular problems. Blood vessels in the neck supply blood to the brain, and a buildup of plaque in these vessels is the No. 1 cause of stroke. A vascular screening at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospitals includes scanning the abdominal aorta for aneurysm, and scanning the carotid artery to look for stenosis that could lead to stroke. Vascular screenings are recommended for persons over 55 with risk factors for vascular disease. Results are provided to a patient's primary care physician for any indicated followup.

Virtual Maternity Tour at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth
 
04:36
Welcome to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth. You're in good company. More than 3,000 babies are born here every year. "It is because of the true quality care," says Amy Hailey, Director of Women & Infants Health at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth. "The emphasis on patient safety and quality; the teamwork that we provide for any type of patient, whether she be high risk, low risk, high risk baby, normal newborn, I feel that myself and my staff come to work every day to do the best that we can do to give high quality care to our patients." When you arrive, you may choose to use valet parking, or self-park. Enter the facility through the main hospital entrance and continue down the corridor toward the Bloxom Tower. Maternal Observation is located on the first floor of the Bloxom Tower. "It's not uncommon for moms to make several trips to the maternal observation unit, especially first time moms, not knowing what to expect, not clearly knowing what changes are going on in the body," says Becky Law, the hospital's Manager of Lactation & Childbirth Education. "Once it's determined that she's in true labor, she will be transferred to the labor and delivery suites and then she will have one-on-one care with the nurse there." The Labor and Delivery suites have been designed to keep you comfortable. The room is equipped with all the clinical tools necessary for your delivery. And you'll find a nursing staff that understands your needs. "We have the high-risk doctors who are specially trained in caring for the high risk moms," says Hailey, "and they bring in the maternal transfers which gives the nurses even more experience in caring for the high risk which increases their skills." "To add to that we have the neonatal specialists," she says, "the neonatologists that do the same for the babies, so they're here 24-7 and the patients have that security to know that if they deliver in the middle of the night or on the weekend, that those high-risk doctors are here to take care of their baby should it need to go to the neonatal ICU." Texas Health Fort Worth offers family-centered maternity care with a commitment to providing a personalized experience for the birth of your child. "Our mid-wife group has introduced water births and they have been sought out from all over Dallas and Fort Worth for moms that are desiring that type of birth so they are coming to the mid-wives to deliver here," Hailey says. "I've had a great experience with my daughter who's 8," says maternity patient Lacey O'Neal. "And we had a good pregnancy and a good delivery here, and now that we're having the twins this is where the doctor that I chose, this is where he delivers, and I also like that they have a great NICU if we need that for having a multiple birth and also that it's connected to Cooks so we have all the resources we need." After your delivery, you will be moved into a private postpartum room. Texas Health Fort Worth encourages "rooming in," a best-practice where both you and baby room together. "It's a benefit to mom and baby because mom can keep her baby with her most of the time during her stay," says Kimberly Williams, R.N, Mother/Baby Nurse Manager. "It brings the nurse to the bedside, where if something is going on with the baby she can recognize that, and also point things out to mom, speedily rather than being in the nursery." Texas Health Fort Worth was the first hospital in Fort Worth to be named "Baby Friendly," a designation given by the World Health Organization to hospitals that offer an optimal level of care for lactation. "We're very lucky here at Texas Health Fort Worth that we have lactation consultants on staff seven days a week," says Law. "Each mom will be visited by a lactation consultant while she's here." The boutique in the Breast Feeding Resource Center is equipped with breastfeeding essentials including pumps, nursing bras and other supplies. And a lactation consultant is available to assist you even after you leave the hospital. "We definitely have the history of delivering over 300,000 babies and feel that we do a great job at that," says Hailey. You can register for Oh Baby!, a free weekly email full of information, news and resources for expecting and new parents.

2011 Quality Awards - Improving Nutritional Support Through TPN Utilization
 
05:00
Total Parenteral Nutrition, or TPN, is a process where patients are fed through an IV because they are unable to use their gastrointestinal system. Staff at Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital began following guidelines from the American Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN). The process began in February 2010. Since then, 98 percent of patients on TPN meet ASPEN criteria and since the hospital has been better monitoring food intake, there has been a 45 percent reduction in the amount of TPN used.

Repetitive Stress Injuries in Children and Teenagers
 
02:11
Too much video game play can lead to repetitive stress injuries in children and teenagers. Stephanie Snyder, a senior physical therapist at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle, defines the problem as doing the same activity over and over, whether with video games, text messaging or similar activites. "Kids are setting themselves up for risk of current or future hand, wrist, and thumb problems -- pain, different tendinitis issues, carpal tunnel and the like," Snyder says. "It's not good for the eyes, promotes poor posture, can cause neck problems, upper back and lower back problems, shoulder issues and a variety of other things involving joints and body parts," she says. The American Academy of Pediatrics estimates that U.S. children are spending five to six hours a day playing video games, texting, watching TV and surfing Internet. The Academy recommends setting a time limit of two hours per day. What should parents do to reduce the risk of repetitive stress injury? If the child is spending all kinds of time with hands clenched on a video game controller, moving their thumbs -- he or she should avoid excessive thumb movement. Use a variety of stretches, pretty much anything that will get them out of the clenched position. Opening the fingers, moving the wrists in different directions, opening and closing the hands. Anything that keeps them from a clenched position. And set time limits. Only allow a period to play video games, then balance it out with outdoor play, riding a bike, playing with friends, going for a walk. Texas Health Resources 1-877-THR-WELL www.TexasHealth.org

Caregivers at Texas Health Resources are using Bubble CPAP -- Continuous Positive Airway Pressure -- to address the issues that can arise in premature infants born with very low birthweight. The intent is to reduce chronic lung disease. Bubble CPAP provides a little bit of boost when babies are breathing spontaneously, to assist their own respirations and help to maintain lung inflation at the end of their breaths. It is noninvasive and allows new parents to bond with their baby in a way that is not possible when an infant is on a ventilator. Texas Health Resources 1-877-THR-WELL www.TexasHealth.org

Senior Safety and Fall Prevention
 
04:36
Half of the trauma admissions at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hosptial Fort Worth involve falls. "And we did a little bit of research saying what makes people fall. Things that make them fall are the amount of medications that they have, if they have cords on the floor, if their rooms are crowded, if they can't see properly," said Mary Ann Contreras, RN. "So we decided to do a multi-disciplinary approach to fall prevention. So we gathered a group of medical professionals together. Pharmacists, Physical Therapy folks, Exercise people, Nurses to come in and Engineering folks to come into the house and take a look at it." The result was a screening test used to determine if a patient was at risk of losing their balance. The test evaluates strength, flexibility, sensation, and visual vestibular interaction. Aftwerard, they are educated on home safety issues, and exercise. Texas Health Resources www.TexasHealth.org 1-877-THR-WELL

STEMI Transfer Process for Heart Attack Patients at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Kaufman
 
02:52
Terry Hedrick was serving as a pall-bearer at a funeral when he began to feel ill. Friends took him to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Kaufman, where Arthur Heaffer, M.D., and the medical staff there determined that he was having a heart attack. They initiated a cardiac transfer protocol, phoning one number to summon a CareFlite helicopter and alert James Park, M.D., and the medical staff in the cardiac catheterization lab at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. An optimal "door-to-balloon time" to get a patient from an E.R. in an outlying area to successful balloon angioplasty at a tertiary care facility is 90 minutes. In this case, by the time Dr. Park finished the procedure on Hedrick it had been only 71 minutes from door to balloon. Hedrick likens the experience to a baseball game. The first three innings took place at Texas Health Kaufman, the middle innings during his time in the CareFlite helicopter. The final three innings occurred at Texas Health Dallas, where Dr. Park "saved my life" in the bottom of the ninth inning. Texas Health Resources 1-877-THR-WELL www.TexasHealth.org

Bariatric Weight-loss Surgery Success at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth
 
03:52
Fran McGuire lost 230 pounds after bariatric weight-loss surgery at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth. "My general physician -- he had been telling me for probably two years that I needed to think about having some type of bariatric surgery. "I knew I was going down the road to be a diabetic. I just wasn't, I just didn't want to do it. So I guess the turning point for me was my son's wedding and they had those little tiny, wooden, wedding chairs and I was terrified that it was going to break. And I, I decided then, that day that I wasn't going to live my life that way anymore. "The biggest I know that I was was 377, and I've lost 230. "At the 100-pound mark, we had gotten a bed frame from my sister that was made out of an old fence, an old iron fence, and it was extremely heavy, and we brought it home, and, you know, were talking about how heavy it was, and so my husband weighed himself and then weighed himself holding the bed frame, the headboard, and he said, 'Oh, it weighs, it weighs 104 pounds.' And at that time that is about what I had lost and he said just, he said, 'How did you do it, you know? You were carrying this on you?' "If they're just contemplating doing it, I would say do it, and the risk of, or the benefits of the surgery far, far outweigh the risks, and that you, you'll be, you know, so much happier in the end. "You have to change your life, you have to. You can't just have the surgery and expect it to be that's it, that's all I had to do. You have to work at it, you still have to work at it, but it's a great tool. It is a great tool. "If you do what, what your doctor and the dietitian, all the professionals tell you to do, and the exercise, you'll be successful. "I have done the Turkey Trot every year since I've done that, and other, just, you know, little 5K's here and there. I don't run, I walk, but (laughs), but I go to the gym every day. I would never go to the gym before. Just the freedom to move and not be afraid to get on airplane, a train, a bus, anything, and, you know, I'm not afraid of where, where I'm going to sit, or if I'm going to fit. That is, that's the biggest relief for me since surgery. "I've had people that I've known for 20 plus years walk right by me, don't know who I am. So, that's kind of fun in a way. My husband has been accused several times of having an affair. (Chuckles) That's kind of funny. "The freedom to move, to be active, to be able to be active and not be just sitting in a chair, cause that's what I did before, I just sat in a chair and let life go by, and now I'm living life."
