Coming soon, at our facility in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, QuickMedical will be hosting a benefit for the Seattle Children's Hospital alongside an Open House for our vendors. Medical professionals from around the country will be attending to meet us, tour our facility, learn about innovative new products, and most importantly, raise money for Seattle Children's Hospital.
There will be guest speakers, free gifts, a vendor bingo, and the big raffle for Children's Hospital. It's going to be a real 'groovy shin-dig,' as the kids say these days.
Now here's the catch: this event is for medical professionals only. So all of you doctors, nurses, medical assistants, and buyers out there, we're talking to you! Registration is recommended, but is not required. So contact us today and register! Give us a call at 1-888-345-4858 or email today! To get all the details visit our Open House page.

I have my doubts about this video. It's apparently a 2 year old Sumatran child with a 2 pack-a-day cigarette habit. Now, I do understand that smoking is a far more prevalent habit in South Asia than in the United States, and I also understand that strange things happen all the time. It does indeed rain frogs. But AfterEffects and Smoke are pretty intense programs, and changing a piece of candy into a cigarette would be a piece of cake for an experienced, out of work, SFX artist in Hollywood or Hong Kong, looking to stir the pot and get a little publicity for himself within his industry circle. But, let's assume it's real and go with that for a moment. Horrified? Amused? Confused?
I know something's wrong. I just know it. I usually think something's wrong with me, and it's nothing, but this time, I know it. That little spot on my arm, I know now that was nothing, but this-- this is something. The blood pressure cuff goes on. The nurse tells me to relax, but how can I relax at a time like this? I have a heart condition, I know it, feel how fast my heart is beating? Oh my God, I'm going to die and then that's it. Gone. Nothing. And I won't even know it, because it'll be over.
"White coat syndrome is a phenomenon in which patients exhibit elevated blood pressure in a clinical setting but not in other settings. It is believed that this is due to the anxiety some people experience during a clinic visit." From Wikipedia.
High blood pressure? What did I do wrong? I eat right. I get enough sleep. I exercise. Just last weekend I played basketball at the park for three hours. Okay, maybe I drink too much coffee. I mean, that's bad for your heart, right? If that's what it takes, I won't drink anymore, whatever it takes, right? Just don't let this be the end. This is bargaining. My God, I'm already in the bargaining stage of dying. How did this happen? I was just a happy kid a few years ago, and now look at me. I'm an old man.
Recent lab tests, at the Fox Chase Cancer Center, on mice have shown that over the counter Aleve (the generic name is Naproxen), blocks a molecular process which causes colon cancer.
A new type of Naproxen, tested only at the Cancer Center, called NO-Naproxen has proved even better at blocking the process which starts colorectal cancer.
Welcome to the second edition of 'Not Just for Doctors'. Today's product is actually very cool and is useful for a variety of people.
You're a high altitude pilot and you need to track your blood oxygen levels to make sure your oxygen mask is working efficiently.
It's an emergency in the intensive care unit and a quick measure of the patient's blood oxygen is absolutely critical.
You're a hiker and you need to keep track of your blood oxygen levels as you hike into higher altitudes and breathe more heavily.
The solution in each of these situations is a device not just for doctors, and in fact, has recently been marketed as an entertainment tool. What is it???
Viruses are freaky little things. They aren't really living things, despite seeming to be alive. They're really just little collections of genetic material. They cannot reproduce on their own. Rather, they insert themselves into living cells and use the material of the living cell to reproduce, and consequently destroy the living cell. They are like vampire-zombies (pictured right), not really alive, feeding off the living. And as we all know, you can't kill something that's not alive. Or can you?
