Pre-crash warning systems are proving their worth

The past few years has seen a dramatic increase in the number of pre-collision warning systems installed on modern vehicles. Lane departure warning, blind spot warning and oncoming traffic detectors while backing are just some of the features installed on later model vehicles. Due to these and other devices, the streets of Iowa are becoming safer.

Diagnosing nasal cavity and paranasal sinus cancer

When it is suspected that an Iowa patient has cancer, there are a number of different tests that a doctor may conduct. However, the options depend on several factors, such as the type of cancer the person may have, the person's age and medical condition, the signs and symptoms and the results of other medical tests that have already been run.

Research shows doctor fat shaming could impact health

Some Iowa patients who are overweight might have been subjected to fat shaming and disrespectful treatment at their doctor's office. This can be harmful to a patient both physically and mentally, and it can cause a patient to delay from seeking medical treatment in an effort to avoid having to talk to their medical professionals.

Drowsy driving prevention through electric shock

Many Iowa motorists have experienced terrifying moments caused by drowsy driving. Whether losing focus or even falling asleep momentarily, many find themselves in precarious situations due to their sleepiness. When this happens, there is the possibility of a crash, resulting in harm not just to themselves but to their passengers and to occupants of other vehicles involved in the collision.

Bicycle crashes often result in injuries or even death

More people than ever are hitting the roads in Iowa on bicycles. Whether you are riding a bicycle for your daily commute, for your morning workout or as a means to socialize with others during an organized group ride, there are risks inherent to biking. Understanding the potential risks and how to minimize them can keep you and your family safe during bike-related activities.

Erroneous dosages can be dangerous

Patients in Iowa may have been exposed to higher or lower drug doses than were safe or necessary for their care. This is an issue that can occur when doctors write prescriptions. Accidentally prescribing or giving a patient a much higher dose can have severe consequences for the patient's health.
