Health & Safety On Demand

Occasionally on the blog, we highlight health companies with bright ideas or companies that are pushing boundaries in our community’s. At CMSPulse we strive to find innovative new healthcare systems or health-related industries and shine a light on them, exposing their services to thousands of new customers or future employees.

Enter 1st Aid Response On-Site, based in California. They are a company taking the health and safety world by storm. On-Site is a mobile first aid response company that can be called upon, in non-life threatening situations, to deliver first aid, drug tests, blood draws, wellness checks, respiratory services and so much more. Before 1st Aid Response On-Site, industries like construction or industrial would send workers to the ER, even for minor cuts, falls, or other injuries. These ER trips are costly not just for the company, but for the worker as well. Missing hours of work for an injury that could have been dealt with in a matter of minutes, hurts an employee’s income.

On-Site’s mobile EMT technicians are trained and certified in many types of first aid, safety, and health-related fields, including phlebotomy, CPR, workplace safety, EMR training, and much more. When an injury at the workplace takes place, the foreman or safety manager in charge just call On-Site’s dispatch and a protocol is set up. The nearest technician to the worker’s location is sent out.

On-Site has paved the way for a new type of worker-related health care service that not only benefits the worker but the company as a whole. 1st Aid Response On-Site started in California but is now located in 8 states including, Arizona, Washington, Florida, and Colorado, with new states and regions being opened every year. On-Site is poised to take its version of health and safety across the US and beyond, helping one worker at a time and saving big companies a lot of money in the process.

Acne Treatments

Acne Treatments

Acne is probably the most common skin condition since more than three-quarters of the adolescent population is affected by acne to some degree for a period of time. Acne can range from a few small blemishes that come and go to full-blown cystic acne that can cover the face and body and even leave permanent scars. There are many companies and types of treatments out there. Depending on the severity and type of acne you have will determine the treatment option you should choose. For very minor acne, eating a healthy diet, with minimal unhealthy fats and sugars and keeping your stress levels to a minimum can help a lot. You can use special acne soaps as well due to the fact that some regular soap is prone to drying out skin, which can cause an increase in acne in some people.

For the more aggressive acne cases special medications, soaps, cremes, and diet can be necessary. Seek medical help if you believe you have cystic acne. Only a dermatologist can accurately diagnose your acne problem and prescribe the proper treatment. For more information check out this website:  Acne

Eczema – How to treat it

Eczema, and how to treat it.

Eczema is a common skin condition that plagues over 30 million Americans. Symptoms include itchy, red, and dry skin caused by inflammation. It is most commonly found in children and infants, but adults can get it as well. Another name for eczema is atopic dermatitis and it can be treated with oral medications, steroid creams, and light therapy. Most people who are not aware of the condition can often mistake eczema for a common rash, or other skin irritants. Eczema can be a chronic condition and it can run in families. Geneticists believe genes can cause some people to have extra-sensitive skin. An overactive immune system is thought to also be a culprit as well. Defects in the skin could also be contributors to eczema. These defects could allow moisture out through the skin and let germs in.

Head Lice Removal: Over-The-Counter Remedies or Professional Services?

Head lice are not harmful, but extremely infectious. Removal is not fast, exciting or fun. But when a child or adult gets contaminated, it is important to fully get rid of all lice and nits (lice eggs). They will return in force sometimes even after you believed they were gone. What makes these parasites so tough to get rid of is the glue-like substance their nits use to attach themselves to the hair.

At first realization of a head lice emergency, you typically have three choices; Head to a neighborhood drug store to purchase over-the-counter removal products, try natural remedy treatments, or find yourself a lice treatment salon where a professional can remove them.

Over-The-Counter Home Remedies

Why use over-the-counter methods of treatment when there are numerous home remedies offered that not only get rid of parasites, but are better for you or your child’s health? Additionally, improper use of off-the-shelf products may harm and occasionally even burn the entire scalp. Headlice.org, a nonprofit health and education agency, points out:

“There aren’t any over-the-counter or prescription treatments to kill lice that are entirely secure and scientifically proven to be 100% effective against head lice and nits. These treatments are possibly harmful pesticides and dependence on these promotes repeated usage and leads to ongoing outbreaks, outbreaks and resistant strains of head lice. Different “natural” remedies are vigorously promoted on the Internet but we’ve found no scientific foundation for their promises or effectiveness and human security. Manual removal of the live lice and nits is your secure choice and a essential part of any head lice treatment regimen.”

Common Natural Alternative Treatments

Some try to suffocate lice with Vaseline, but this usually proves to be unsuccessful and just leaves parents with all the frustration of removing the jelly. Also, though touted on some websites, Mayonnaise has not been proven to be more powerful than over-the-counter products. However, at least it’s safer. For a healthier solution you can find natural products online. After trying a multitude, a few stand out. Nit Free brand is not only healthy, but works well. Also another highly rated product is the Fairy Tales Brand. They have great reviews on Amazon and are clinically proven to remove lice. Lastly, a new brand seems to be working extremely well called Dr. Z’s Lice Free. They not only have their own line of natural lice removal products, but offer some of the best lice services Concord and the surrounding area in California can offer. Just look at the reviews.
