Children Wearing Lab Coats

ID-10036453You’ve probably seen adults wearing lab coats while they are working in a hospital or doctor’s office. Some wear them while they are in a lab or while teaching a chemistry or biology course in school. Children can also wear lab coats, but they often have fun designs on them, such as cartoon characters or animals. They cover most of the body to protect the clothing and the skin. Some children might wear kids lab coats for Halloween so that they can look like a doctor or nurse while others might wear one to school to give an example of what a parent does for a job.

One of the main reasons to wear a lab coat is protection. While children might not be using chemicals or items that are dangerous, they might want to protect their clothing when they are painting or helping cook in the kitchen. The coat will keep liquids from staining the clothes and make them feel like they are professional instead of simply playing or doing a chore for parents.

There are times when children might need to stay in the hospital because they are sick or they have had surgery. A lab coat can help prevent the spread of germs that could make children sicker. Adding a mask can further decrease the spread of germs that are sometimes found in hospitals and doctor’s offices. The coat can also be used if the child is visiting a friend or family member in the hospital, protecting against taking home germs and bacteria if the coat is thrown away before going home as some are disposable.

Older children might take classes in school that deal with some liquids that could damage the skin or clothing. A lab coat, goggles, gloves and a mask can help prevent these liquids from splashing on the skin or the clothing. Most lab coats are now made with materials, such as cotton, that won’t melt if they are on fire. This will help protect the child if they are in that kind of situation as some clothing will melt to the skin.

Pneumococcal Vaccine for Children

The pneumococcal vaccine which is used in children is protein-conjugated with polysaccharides. Pneumococcal capsular polysaccharide vaccine is not effective in children below 2 years of age as the immune system of children below 2 years do not respond to polysaccharide antigens properly. If capsular polysaccharide is conjugated with a protein the immune system responds well to protein-conjugated polysaccharides (antigen).

The protein-conjugated polysaccharides vaccine is recommended among infants and children. The introduction of protein-conjugated polysaccharides vaccine in the year 2000 has caused dramatic reduction of pneumococcal infection among children and infants in many countries. The vaccine is made of 7 serotypes of Streptococcus pneumoniae which cause infection among children commonly.

In one study the protein-conjugated polysaccharides vaccine was found to reduce pneumococcal infection (meningitis) by 98% and otitis media (infection of middle ear) by more then 65%, by the seven serotypes, used in the vaccine.

The incidence of pneumococcal infection among unvaccinated children and adults also declined due the effect of “herd immunity”, which may be due to effects of the protein-conjugate polysaccharides vaccine on nasopharyngeal carriage of vaccine serotypes. Herd immunity is the immunity of a community that develops due to widespread use of vaccines, even among non immunized individuals.

A disadvantage of widespread use of protein-conjugated polysaccharides vaccine is, increased incidence of infection by the serotypes of Streptococcus pneumoniae that are not included in the vaccine and these serotypes are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics. But in general there is dramatic decline in the incidence of infection by Streptococcus pneumoniae.

You May Have These Illnesses Due to EMF Radiation

Take Electromagnetic Field (EMF) radiation exposure seriously. This is something that you get when constantly using devices such as smartphones and computers. You may not be aware of it but constant use could increase your vulnerability to radiation. If you still don’t believe it, here are some of the illnesses you could have, based on several studies conducted.

Cancer

Although research is not conclusive, some points to the fact that EMF radiation and cancer may have links. There was even a report showing that children with leukemia lived in an area where there was a high amount of EMF radiation. The damaging carcinogens were attributed to EMF radiation. Other illnesses include malignant glioma in the brain and rare tumors in the ear.

Brain dysfunction

There have also been studies showing that EMF radiation may affect brain activities. Results showed that there were changes in brain glucose metabolism after using a cellular phone. It increases over time with constant use of cellular phones. The increased production led to the inflammation of the brain.

Dementia

EMF radiation does not lead to dementia itself, but it could trigger the illness. It damages some DNA in the body. This leads to cancer and memory loss. Since the damaged cells can’t be easily repaired, dementia may happen in the long term.

Other symptoms

There are some illnesses that are not as serious as others, but you should still be concerned. This is true especially when children are affected. For instance, several children have suffered from dizziness and nausea after being exposed to a computer for a very long time. Some of them have developed high fever and weight loss problems. It is so unfortunate that even children end up suffering because of EMF radiation.

You can protect yourself

Yes, you can’t stop the development of modern technology, but you can keep yourself protected. There are ways to ensure that you are not bothered by EMF radiation. Using EMF protection jewellery is one of them. You can now feel relieved knowing that you are totally protected or at least have a lesser risk of getting all the mentioned illnesses due to EMF radiation exposure. You can also buy it for your children, so they will also be protected.

Since you just wear the jewellery like you normally would, this won’t really be much of a burden. You can also choose the type of jewellery that would be perfect for your style. You can buy bracelets or pendants. They look good, and you will also be protected against radiation. What else can you ask for? Go online now and order the most suitable EMF protection device for yourself.

9 Practical Hacks to Break Free From Holiday Sleep Cycle

Who doesn’t love the idea of holidays? No one. In fact, most people wish to have an extended holiday vacay forever. All of us love the idea of taking a holiday break to de-stress and unwind from the stressors of work, school, and other life battles. The only drawback here is that at the end of the week, you have work or studies and you need to do it.

The holiday season is about to end which means most of us will head back to work or school by next Monday. And this switch from fun to formal distorts sleeping patterns even among the best sleepers. It drains you in the morning but frustratingly makes you unable to doze off at night.

The Truth About Holiday Blues

Most people presume that holidays are the perfect time to catch up on missed nights of sleep, but despite the luxury of long naps, it’s unlikely that a holiday period will refresh your mentality and body.

According to Dr. Neil Stanley, a renowned sleep expert and former chairman of the British Sleep Society, the culprit is those lovely siestas, holiday lie-ins, and fun-packed late nights. These activities alter your body clock which makes it difficult to readjust and wake up in your regular time once you’re back to the daily grind.

Dr. Stanley adds that our body loves predictability and rhythm. In fact, most drowsiness takes place because we’re bad at sticking to regular bedtimes. And holiday vacations are just an exaggerated version when schedules go erratic which lasts for several weeks.

The alteration of sleeping routine in this manner tends to leave us feeling irritable and disoriented, rather than rejuvenated.

Our Body Clock and How It Works On Holidays

The body has a very accurate natural clock and hours before you wake up. It starts to prepare like a computer booting when turned on. Your sleep becomes light, the stress hormones cortisol loose free and body temperature rises to wake you up.

However, when you’re outside of your routine, your body isn’t expecting to wake up by the time your alarm rings. It isn’t ready and is still in deep sleep that’s why you feel so exhausted when you go out of bed. So, when you wake up feeling dozy, groggy and desperate for another hour of sleep, it’s a sign that the natural rhythm of your body is out of sync.

Worry no more as there are simple expert tricks that will not only ease your body clock back into its routine but also helps you to sleep better than ever.

Go Back to Your Routine

The rule of thumb for this trick is simple – be an early bird. Go to bed earlier and get up at your normal work or school time from tonight and continue doing it for the whole weekend. By the next morning, you’ll be on your way to reset your body clock, and you’ll find it easier to get up. You’ll also find it easier to sleep if you have the right type of mattresses.

Cheat Your Clock

If you can’t help but stay late on Friday night, try going to bed a bit earlier on Saturday to return your body clock’s routines. And if it’s still not back to its normal rhythm before Sunday night and all else fails, go to bed one hour earlier to prepare your brain for the waking-time change.

Reset Your Body Clock Through Lighting Setups

You will need light in the morning to set your body’s ‘alert’ mode, so get as much sunshine outside as soon as possible after you wake up. You can also take a walk from home to your work or school. In the evening, dim subdue the lights and switch off your TV and laptop at least an hour before bed.

Do not use your mobile phones and tablets in bed as they emit a type of blue light that can trick your brain into thinking that it’s daytime. It will make you feel wide awake even though you want to wind down for sleep.

Don’t Snooze

While it’s common to feel desperate about having extra minutes of sleep during your first week back at work, pressing the snooze button is the worst thing you can do.

You may go back into deep sleep if you snooze your alarm which makes it harder to wake up, compared to the lighter sleep that occurs an hour before your body’s natural wake up time. This time, waking up again shocks your body and leaves you feeling horrible and tempted to hit snooze once again. Thus, the vicious cycle continues.

What you can do instead is to set your alarm in the exact time where you have to get up. And as soon as you can bear it, pull your curtains out and let the sunlight enters your room to let your brain know that it’s morning and jump-start your body clock.

Get the Children Back in the Routine

It’s a big myth that children don’t need a fixed bedtime and will just go to sleep when they are tired. This misconception is comparable to the assumption that children stop eating ice cream the moment they’re full! The practice of going to bed and getting up at the same time is even more essential for kids.

Children need to get more sleep compared to adults because it’s crucial to the development of their brain and body. Those who sleep longer have been found to have better class performance and are more likely get a healthy weight. One study even reveals that children who get less than six hours of sleep per night have 30% more probability of obesity.

Try to Neutralize Natural Aging

According to the study conducted by Harvard University, there’s a scientific reason why people find it harder to sleep as they age. The answer is because we lose the brain cells that turn off our thoughts and make it easier for us to sleep. However, a natural approach can compensate for it.

The study facilitated by Louisiana State University found out that drinking cherry juice twice a day within two weeks helps lengthens sleep time by almost 90 minutes among adults who suffer from insomnia.

It turns out that cherries contain high levels of melatonin, a sleep hormone which signals your body when it’s time to sleep together with tryptophan, a precursor to serotonin which aids snoozing.

Schedule Your Meal Time

According to research, eating may affect your internal clock. Apart from keeping a fixed bedtime, scheduling meal times helps you handle changes in work schedules and time zones. So, you must aim to eat at a scheduled time every day to regulate your sleep and keep your internal clock steady.

Eat the Right Bedtime Snack

Scientists found out that a  handful of Brazil nuts and glass of milk could help to improve sleep.

According to the experts from Pennsylvania University who study about sleep patterns and diets of more than 4,500 adults, they found certain acids and minerals that help improve your sleeping cycle. In particular, the potassium and selenium found in Brazil nuts contribute to a better sleep, while the dodecanoic and butanoic acids found in milk regulates unbroken sleep patterns.

They also advise avoiding butter and cheese, along with drinking too much and eating salty foods close to bedtime, as these factors contribute to poor quality of sleep.

Turn Off Your Gadgets

Most people become too dependent and obsess with their gadgets which only leads to inadequate sleep. Experts advise that instead of monitoring your sleep every second, getting into bed a bit earlier is a better option.

Takeaway

People have different adaptability, and resetting body clock is no different. While the tricks above help in bringing back your natural circadian rhythm after a weeklong holiday break, you still need to exert effort to make them work. And now that your vacation is almost over, it’s about time to make ends meet again and get back to work.

Auditory Processing Assessment Will Assess Your Child Need for Hearing Aid

The problems of auditory deficiency in children are increasing by the day. As the world moves on faster, there are certain ill-effects of the whole civilizing process and children might be born of this deficiency or acquire it when they come into this world. As the auditory faculty is essentially linked with their overall mental growth it is extremely important for an auditory processing assessment. This assessment will prove to be great in determining whether your child is deficient in any area of his or her brain that is related to hearing. When a child is enrolled into school and complains of not being able to follow classes well and comes back with jumbled notes then he might be suffering from reduced hearing. This assessment will tell the doctors whether your child requires a hearing aid or some other special training. It might be useless blaming your child if he or she is inattentive in the class room. It might be way beyond their controls.

Conditions Pre and After Birth Which Might Result In Hearing Loss:

  • Someone else in the family might be suffering from it. There might be a general tendency if there is a genetic problem.
  • Some sort of infection before the birth might have resulted in subsequent hearing loss for the baby.
  • There might be neurological problems or disorders in the child which might have affected the auditory nerve.
  • Deformities result in strained nerves as well. If there is a deformity near a child’s head then his ears might get affected resulting in hearing loss.
  • If a baby suffers from jaundice just after he or she was born it might result in the yellowing of his or her skin leading to subsequent hearing deficiencies.
  • Any form of head injury to the baby or any injury to the mother before birth causes hearing loss as well.
  • Infections resulting in the accumulation of puss in the ears for a long period of time might harm the eardrum too.
  •  Medicines which might have been toxic to the auditory health of the baby can result in hearing loss.

How Is Hearing Loss Detected Right After Birth?

Your child is given a hearing test right after he or she is born. If he or she does not pass the test then a second try is made. Upon failure in that test also the doctor refers you to a specialist for further tests.

Further Tests to Assess the Hearing Condition of Your Child:

An auditory processing assessment can include the following tests. These tests can be conducted within three months of age. They are:

The Auditory Brainstem Response Test or ABR:

This one will measure the responses of your child to the sound through electrode sensors. These are just taped to the side of the brain so that when an electrical wave passes through the child’s brain it is easy for the sensors to detect the motion. Of course, the child should have a completely quiet brain, necessarily sleeping.

Otoacoustic Emissions Test or OAE:

This test is done to make sure that your infant’s ears reflect the sounds thus completing the hearing process. A sound of low decibel is entered through a probe placed into the infant’s ear canal. If the resultant echo comes back then the infant does not have permanent hearing loss. If it does not then he or she does.

Tympanometry Test:

It is a test done to check whether the whole system from the eardrum to the middle ear and the outer one is functioning properly. It might be possible that he or she has a slight defect in any of the parts or has fluid inside which can be treated.

For more details, you can search through the reliable online portals, to get more information about auditory processing assessment.

What are the functions of Child Psychologists? How can they lead to your Child’s Development?

Psychologists are the people who study your behavior, reasons, outlook adding together to the inner views and assist them to get over or command particular psychological issues. A child psychologist has to deal with critical cases also, related to the child’s emotional and metaphysical development, often dealing with the problems associated with differently-abled children, and also with those children who show attitude and personality disorders.

Child psychologists are experts that use their knowledge to counsel, and evaluate human behavior to help a child and middle aged teens to cope with their issues and develop into successful and adjustable adults.

  • The primary role of child psychologist is to understand why the child behaves in a particular manner, which is a diversion from the normal human behavior in the society. The clinical psychologist develops techniques related to studying the historical background of the child, so that he can frame remedial measures for the development of the child’s mind.

 

When it comes to crafting a better, optimistic world for children, child psychologists play many vital roles, like –

  • Studying behavior to give a clear picture of a child’s wants
  • Analyzing and treating psychological conditions
  • Trying to be an adviser to parents, teachers, and caretakers
  • Offering supportive counseling to children who are going through a lot of stress or disturbance

Generally, child psychologists work for children who are going through life changing experiences like trauma, abuse, family issues, bullying, learning disabilities, and addiction.

What is the Role of a Child Psychologist?

Assessment – Their routine duties comprise evaluation and treatment suggestions for children and grown teens. The analytical process generally revolves around a number of tests based on mental ability over and above consultation sessions with the child, his or her parents and others who are close to the child. The psychologist eventually should find out if the kid has psychological health issues noteworthy enough to fit the norms for the treatment. Depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, and other stuff abuse are few widespread child disorders that child psychologists encounter daily.

How the Treatment is Conducted?

  • The child psychologist’s treatment differs according to the child’s situation. Many psychologists make suggestions on behavior adjustment plans. This comprises schooling on basic skill to deal with emotional disputes, psychiatric therapy or counseling and rehab or prescription in severe cases.
  • Whereas many child psychologists oversee the healing phase and directly provide therapy meetings. And few, especially those who mostly work in hospitals or private clinics, generally refer children to psychiatrists, outpatient or inpatient services or other psychology community resources.
  • The child psychologist devises a remedial action based on complete parental and community support, encouraging the child’s potential capacity and rectifying the wrongs that the child was prone to do. This the child psychologist does with the knowledge of the subject, and with his or her practical experience.

How can a Child go Astray?

  • Abuse – There are few cases where the child psychologists have to deal with circumstances where the child is abused. If the child is abused by one or more parents, the psychologist can suggest the local child services organizations to simply remove the child from the home. And if the child gets violent and poses any sort of danger to its loved ones especially the siblings because of the abuse, the psychologist treating the child can recommend different living arrangements for the child.
  • Custody – Another common, but not so frequent role of the child psychologist is to provide advice in matter of custody. The psychologist generally meets the child, his/her parents and other family members who are well aware of the home dynamics.

A child psychologist works in close collaboration with the child’s family members, and he or she must be compassionate to listen to the child’s complaints and also understand about the child’s mental world.
