Not All Lung Cancers are the Same

Not All Lung Cancers are the SameNot All Lung Cancers are the SameNot All Lung Cancers are the Same

A team of British Columbia Cancer Agency scientists has discovered that lung cancer in smokers is different from cancer in non-smokers.


What are these wacky Canadian doctors up to? Are they actually telling us smoking is bad? I think we've heard that somewhere, one time or another. But apparently, it's not just bad for you, it's really bad for you. How bad is it?

Happy Veterans Day

Today in the United States, we celebrate Veterans Day. Throughout the world, November 11th is known as Armistice Day. In 1918, World War I officially ended on November 11th and Woodrow Wilson subsequently proclaimed it a holiday for world peace.


Unfortunately for President Wilson, world peace was a fleeting dream, the world was at war a few years later.


In 1954 President Dwight Eisenhower changed Armistice Day into Veterans Day, recognizing all American veterans, from all wars. It has remained a Federal holiday since.


QuickMedical is a veteran owned business and our government sales division serves the veteran hospitals and military communities. Consequently today, we pause a moment to say thank you to the men and women who have served our country, in war and in peace. We might not be here without you.

Celebrities with Diabetes

Celebrities with Diabetes

Over two decades ago, these incredibly earnest, and corny lines (pictured right) graced the airwaves of radio stations around America. A young rock n'roller named Bret Michaels transformed a painful break-up with his girlfriend into the lyrics 'Every Rose has it's Thorn,' and in the process made himself and his bandmates a mountain of money. Bret Michaels is a hair metal rocker, reality TV star, and also a diabetes spokesperson. He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 6. Almost 8% of the population in the USA has some form of diabetes according to American Diabetes Association. This includes several famous people, you probably didn't know had the disease. Who are they?

Wound Care for Pressure Ulcers

Wound Care for Pressure Ulcers

Wound Care is a hot topic of conversation throughout hospitals and long term care facilities. Health care professionals have recognized pressure ulcers, also known as decubitus ulcers and bed sores, as a rising problem. A pressure ulcer is defined as any lesion caused by unrelieved pressure resulting in a damage of underlying tissue. Pressure Ulcers can cause serious damage and require specialized care, creating added costs for facilities. Prevention of pressure ulcers is critical and with more and more wound care products being developed, preventing pressure ulcers is becoming more attainable. Wound care products like the Heelift Suspension Boot keep the patient's boney points, such as the heel, from absorbing all the pressure, instead spreading the pressure throughout a larger surface space. Another wound care product that helps prevent pressure ulcers is a sensation test for the foot, which determines if a patient has loss of sensation, making the foot susceptible to neuropathic ulcer development.

Should You Mix Caffeine and Alcohol?

Should You Mix Caffeine and Alcohol?

Should you mix caffeine and alcohol? Caffeine is one heckuva drug. It's found naturally in certain plants as a pesticide. It paralyzes and kills insects trying to eat the plants. Humans, on the other hand, are stimulated by the drug, and take it in a variety of forms to feel more alert. Caffeine is the world's most widely consumed psychoactive substance, but unlike many other psychoactive substances, it's legal and unregulated almost everywhere. Recently in England and in Washington state caffeine has caused some serious problems, however.
