Medications Reduce ER Visits

Children who take one or more asthma medications have fewer visits to the emergency room for asthma than those who don't take such medications, say researchers with the University of Michigan Health System. The researchers studied 19,000 children with asthma, noting the frequency of asthma-related ER visits, and how rates of ER visits varied by age, gender, race and prescriptions for fast-acting "rescue" medications, as well as long-term preventive asthma drugs.

Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it has no symptoms. If high blood pressure remains unchecked, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and more. You can stop this silent killer — if you catch it in time.
