How Increasing Web Development and Database Technologies are Saving Lives

| News, Web Design | No Comments

As technology grows and diversifies it becomes more and more useful to a wider range of users. Web development and database technologies are quickly growing fields that are becoming more and more beneficial to a larger range of people. These technologies are no longer limited to use by large companies or other businesses but are becoming more and more common within the medical and emergency response fields. These technologies can make the jobs of firefighters, doctors, nurses, and EMTs far easier than ever before.

Medical Records

Technology is in fact saving lives in many cases as it makes the transport and records of patients faster, more accurate, and more readily available to medical professionals. In the past it has been necessary for medical and emergency response professionals to take written or manually logged notes about cases and events of which they have been a part. While these notes are critical in reconstruction of accidents and events and in caring for patients, they are not widely available to all the professionals that may be part of the incident.

Take for instance traditional medical records; prior to the digitization of medical records, access to these files was strictly on a physical basis. You either needed to have the file in your hands or request a copy of the files in order to use them properly. Web development and database technologies make it possible now to transmit information from doctor’s office to doctor’s office or from the accident scene to the hospital directly. You no longer have to wait for paper records and teams and staff can get to work faster on patients than they would have been able to otherwise.

Another advantage is that teams and professionals can look back on past incidents much easier with digitized and database records than they would have been able to with paper records. The ability to store larger amounts of data is another advantage to this growing software and digital database technologies. Medical and emergency professionals are no longer limited in the amount of information they can store and save for future use as they were with paper records. Though there are still some limits, professionals can now store far more data than ever before.

Security and Technical Support

On top of all that there is also the added security and tech support benefits. Paper records are difficult to secure and anyone who can read and find them ends up having access to them. Though some of these records are not private, many are and securing access to them is a main concern. With web development and database technologies you can safeguard information quickly and easily and can specify who you want to have access to your information and who should not. In regards to tech support, you will always have a team of developers that know the ins and outs and difficulties and glitches in programs. With support you can quickly and easily nullify and remedy problems so that access to records is simple.

All of these benefits can help make web development and database technologies a major part of saving lives every day in both the emergency response setting and in the medical profession. In a world where technology is king it is refreshing to see that the technologies that are being created are not only easy to use but are also incredibly useful when it comes to saving lives. These technologies will no doubt change and grow as the available resources and information changes and we can only hope that the changes that are made will benefit the greater public and the medical and emergency response professionals that save lives every day.

Technologies in Preventing the Sneeze

| News | No Comments

Environmental allergies affect millions of Americans who fight their way through the spring and summer months sneezing, rubbing their eyes and, of course, taking allergy meds. In addition to medication, people turn to natural methods to minimize reactions to allergens after they enter the body and to limit the number of allergens in the home and office. These techniques reduce the number of allergens in the air to improve air quality so people can breathe more easily indoors.

1. Change air filters regularly

Filtering out allergens in the home is one of the keys to making sure the air that remains is clean and pure. Installing HEPA filters on an air conditioning system and changing them regularly is the best way to get rid of allergens. Spaces without central air conditioning can benefit from a stand-alone air filtration machine. Again, keeping the filter fresh ensures it reaches peak performance and cleans the air.

2. Keep pet dander out

People who are allergic to pet dander or fur but who can’t bear to part with their furry friends can at least take a few precautions to limit exposure to pet dander. First, vacuum regularly with a machine that has a HEPA filter to keep the dander from heading straight back into the room. Second, keep pets off the furniture and out of bedrooms to limit contact with dander. Lastly, groom pets outside regularly to keep the dander out of the home.

3. Stop dust mites

Dust mites can cause severe allergies and often hide out in all the toughest spots to get to. One of the best ways to reduce exposure to dust mites is to keep bedding covered in allergen-proof casings and to wash sheets in hot water at least once per week to clean off allergens that have settled into the bedding. In addition, keeping the home’s temperature at 70 degrees or lower and humidity levels below 50 percent also fights off dust mites.

4. Prevent mold growth

Mold can cause severe allergic reactions. Unfortunately, it grows easily in buildings, especially in areas with humid outdoor air. Keeping indoor humidity levels below 50 percent is the best way to prevent mold growth. Some ways to do this include running a dehumidifier, keeping windows closed on humid days, venting bathrooms and laundry rooms outdoors and installing a sump pump in the basement to get rid of any standing water that makes its way into the home.

5. Keep windows closed

Although nobody wants to live in a closed-up space all year, there are times when it’s very helpful to keep the windows closed. Weather reports list pollen levels each day. Keeping windows closed during peak pollen season can prevent these allergens from making their way into the home or office. Pollen levels are highest in the morning, so even keeping the windows closed during the first few hours of the day can help. When windows are open, ensure they have screens and the house has an air filter running to help maintain air quality levels.

6. Avoid tobacco smoke

Many people are allergic to tobacco smoke. Once it makes its way into a home or office, it can be time-consuming to air out the space. Smokers should smoke outside and remain at least 10 yards away from the building. Make sure all windows and doors are closed while people are smoking outdoors. Workplaces should establish designated smoking areas with ashtrays, shade and seating to encourage people who smoke to use those spaces rather than staying close to the building.

Even households and offices without people who have severe allergies can benefit from taking steps to decrease the number of allergens in the space. Mild allergies may not cause symptoms, but they do make people more susceptible to getting other sicknesses. In addition, it’s always a good idea to make sure a space is comfortable for visitors who do have allergies. Changing just a few habits can make a significant difference in improving indoor air quality.
