Should additional time be given before cutting the umbilical cord

The miracle of childbirth is a wonderful event. Brand new parents are understandably excited to meet the little being that has been growing inside his mother’s womb. But for as amazing as this event can be, childbirth has its risks; which is why it is important for birthing centers to follow protocols that ensure the safety of mother and baby.

Common problems that can lead to birth injuries

It might seem cliché to think of childbirth as a medical miracle, but considering that a child is born alive and ready to breathe air directly after entering the world, one cannot help but to marvel at how this is done. However, childbirth is fraught with peril; as a number of things can go wrong in the midst of the birthing process. This is why doctors and prenatal nurses are trained to recognize and deal with problems that can occur in the event the baby, or the mother, goes into distress.

Should doctors be able to predict brain injury recovery?

You usually don’t hear the words “concussion protocol” thrown around in the context of an NBA game, but in these playoffs, the fear of concussions has been front and center. In the series involving the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics, Cavaliers’ forward J.R. Smith was suspended for essentially knocking another player unconscious.

If you ever wondered how effective surgical masks can be

If you have recently been admitted to a hospital, what is the most common thing you probably saw? Chances are that hospital scrubs were the most frequent thing seen. After all, scrubs are the universal uniform of hospital attendants and doctors. But also, you may have noticed surgical masks; especially in areas where the potential transfer of germs is high (or the risk to the patient was high as well).

Three things to ask before hiring a medical malpractice attorney

If you have been harmed by a negligent doctor or have been sickened during a hospital stay, it is important for those responsible for your health (or not taking steps to secure it) to be held accountable. One way to achieve this is to pursue a medical malpractice claim.
