Septum piercing pain and healing time

Septum piercing dangers

Septum piercing with people who are suffering from various heart diseases are at increased risk of developing an infection after piercing. They should practice extra care, especially the people who have diseases such as diabetes, various skin problems, allergies, pregnant women have an autoimmune disease.

Septum piercing pain

Before decorating the body with piercing, prefer to consult with a doctor. However, it is advisable to pre-vaccination against tetanus and hepatitis. After septum piercing is performed some pain might arise. Septum piercing pain is common, yet the recovery time might be prolonged.

Septum piercing healing time factors

Piercing procedure must necessarily take place in a clean, safe and professional environment and only a qualified person can perform this procedure. A place where you decide for piercing should be cleaned and disinfected needle with which you puncture the desired location must be sterile and sharp. Septum piercing healing time may vary, but is usually around 2-6 weeks.

Then follows the insertion of needle which was previously sterilized. The material used must be discarded after use and disposed of in a container intended for this type of waste. A person who has performed the piercing is obliged to give all necessary instructions, namely, how should we go to the area where the septum piercing jewelery is installed and as swiftly as possible without adverse consequences. Well check out the premises, as they must be clean and adequate. Do not perform piercing on suspicious sites.

Even the person who performs the piercing must take care with cleaning prior to the procedure and must wash and disinfect their hands and use gloves. Care should also be given to what jewelry you choose, because some people are sensitive to nickel and other metals. In any event, for piercing choose the best Gold (fourteen and eighteen karat), platinum, steel orthopedic titanium or niobium material.

EMLA anesthetic disc and cream

One word of caution. EMLA anesthetic disc and cream should not be used on anyone with a rare blood disease called methemoglobinemia. (However LHX cream can be used on someone with this disorder).

Since babies under one year have a higher risk for the development of methemoglobinemia, doctors and nurses should use only the recommended amount of EMLA on children this young. For infants under 5 kg, the recommended maximum dosage is 1 gm, application area is 10 cm2 (1.25 × 1.25 inches), and application time is 1 hour.

It is not recommended for use on mucous membranes. EMLA disc and cream should not be left on the skin longer than three hours. If it is, side effects and methemoglobinemia may occur. Itching and rash occurred in two percent of the patients it was tried on. Skin paleness occurred in 37 percent. In seven percent there was swelling. In seven percent there was a changed ability to feel hot or cold. But these side effects went away within one or two hours after the patch was taken off or the cream wiped off.

For further reading refer to this report.

Occasionally EMLA patch or cream will cause the veins to constrict, making blood drawing hard (vasoconstriction). If this occurs the veins can be made to unconstrict by applying a warm pack to the site before the procedure.
This is the first product I have received feedback about from a real parent with a real kid. Here are two letters from a parent of an autistic eight-year-old.Emla cream

“Of course. Most of the kids that go to our DAN get the cream and the nurse says that most don’t flinch. The kids she generally has a problem with (even with the cream) are those that have had really traumatic,
painful incidences elsewhere.”

and

“Our doc uses EMLA, which is lidocaine. It’s just incredible and you can see the difference. My kiddo doesn’t have any fear of the IV, but if we ever go to a place like Quest for a regular blood draw he screams bloody murder and fights tooth and nail. He starts acting up the minute he sees their building. It’s crazy not to try to make the experience better since our kids are always having to have so many pokes.”

Preclinical Research and Development

Identifying the drug candidates that have the best efficacy, lowest toxicity and novel mechanisms of action, requires highly focused technical teams to be successful. The staff of SRA Life Sciences’ has an average 13 years experience in preclinical assays and assay development from clinical and research diagnostics, to molecular and cellular toxicology, to in vitro pharmacokinetics. This expertise has supported clients in obtaining INDs and advancing drug development candidates into clinical trials. Our Preclinical Research and Development team will continue to help you maintain the highest level of excellence and efficiency all the way through clinical development.

A report on diabetes

Actually, this final is a repeat of the first but reported in a different manner. It’s quite interesting how media outlets are gravitating to different theories despite the lack of clear evidence. Headlines suggest “Better hygiene conditions responsible for soaring rates of Type ” and “Too healthy children can get diabetes”.

Yet there are a myriad of correlations which exist between the rise of Type 1 Diabetes, environmental conditions and the lifestyle. Before we assume any one of them is the dominant factor further investigation seems pertinent. For example, prior to blaming the rise of the disease on a decrease in breastfeeding couldn’t researchers actually perform the investigation?

I’ve yet to find the original research report supporting the findings but the announcement by Diabetes UK is here.

Online Glucose Stats Soon to be Available

You may have guessed it already but I like online tools. So when the announcement about the launch of SugarStats showed up on digg.com my interest was peaked.

SugarStats is an online service aimed at enabling individuals with diabetes to manage, monitor and share their blood glucose levels. Glucose readings are entered online and stored in a simple interface and can be accessed from anywhere at any time, even via a cell phone or mobile device.

The ultimate goal, of coarse, is improved diabetes management through better control of blood sugar levels.

The concept is really cool and I’ve just requested to be a beta tester. You can do the same (click here – the site offers no guarantees). Having only been recently introduced to the concept, I’m not sure where the project is going but hope the creators of the software have considered adding some type of social networking tools (e.g., facebook.com) to their interface (yes, it’s always easy to ask for more). I think this would likely increase excitement, commitment and use.

If you are interested in how to train your brain feel free to view this article.

Thanks for the post, we’ve gotten great response since the announcement and a swarm of private-BETA requests and feedback from the people using it.

Some social-networking aspect is definitely an interesting and hot idea. Though right-now we just want to focus on the things it does best, this type of functionality is definitely worth looking at a little down the line.

One big feature we’re looking to release soon is our TrustedView ability which will let users share their stats as they see them but in a read-only manner (along with commenting/messaging) to their friends, family and health-care professional. One thing at a time I suppose 🙂

Exercise is good for your memory too

Most individuals with Type 2 Diabetes are told by their doctors to eat right and exercise. Exercise, in particular, is thought to help enhance the body’s ability to regulate blood glucose by enhancing the one’s sensitivity to insulin.

For similar reasons, exercise reduces the risk of developing diabetes and is an effective means for fighting obesity.

There is an added benefit. Researchers have now shown that exercise enhances age related memory. It initiates the growth of new brain cells in a region called the dentate gyrus, a part of the hippocampus that is known to be affected in the age-related memory decline that begins around age 30 for most humans.
