Male Baldness Does Not Have to Lead to a Broken Heart

July 18, 2013

I once had a case where a male victim experienced a mild myocardial infarction (heart attack). I believe it was the result of a “broken heart.”

He had male pattern baldness. He had documented that a wig was worn for two years. He also had written how bad he felt about being bald.

I want all men to know that there are new products to help with male pattern baldness. RegenePure Precision Minoxidil Spray is a revolutionary hair loss treatment that will forever change the way men fight back against male pattern baldness.

A second product RegenePure® DR contains Ketoconazole, a powerful antifungal that is often used to treat dandruff and makes the hair look and feel thicker. In recent studies, it has also been shown to disrupt the production of DHT, which can curb hair loss and help to stimulate growth. But this does not stop with one powerful, high-quality ingredient. RegenePure® DR is packed with other beneficial elements, including Saw Palmetto extract, Vitamin B6 and Zinc Oxide. Niacin, Caffeine and Linolenic Acid are also included to stimulate the scalp, while Emu and Jojoba oils keep the skin supple and rejuvenated. Click on the link for a complete description of key ingredients and their restorative properties. The hair loss shampoos are formulated with world-class ingredients and powerful restorative properties to bring out the best in men’s hair.

These boots made a difference

June 19, 2013

A co-worker and I were assigned to assess the death of a man in the middle of winter. Neither one of us had a desire to go up into the mountain. But, we both went. 

It was 30 degrees below zero and snowing that morning. The snowfall the previous night was 12 inches. We left our comfortable office and traveled a whole hour by jeep. After we parked our vehicle, there was another hour of travel by foot. I was glad I was wearing my comfortable boots for women. I could not tell what my co-worker was wearing. His footwear was completely covered by snow as was mines. 

When we made it to the remote cabin, we shook the snow and ice off our footwear. My feet were warm and not tired. I was amazed because that was the first time I wore the boots on a field call. The boots arrived in the mail only 2 weeks before the cabin assignment. My co-worker had a different reaction to the one-hour trek. He had to immediately rest and massage his feet once we reached the cabin. 

When we finished our assessment at the accident scene, my co-worker jokingly asked to exchange foot ware.

If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon (comment)

April 3, 2012

My vote is no, the public should not be involve with the investigation and monitoring of the investigation of the death of young man Trayvon Martin. Look at how the video of the Robert Zimmerman at the police station is handled. First it was said on the news that it did not appear Mr. Zimmerman had wounds. After video enhancement, it is said the Mr. Zimmerman now has wounds.

The professional investigators should be allowed to do their jobs without “backseat drivers” giving directions. It is a certainty that the professional investigators will be double checking each other. Thus, there is no need of the public double checking.

If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon

March 28, 2012

I am an Afro-American and proud of it. If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon.

I am also a forensic nurse. This is not going to be easy to say. The parents of Trayvon Martin and the community should not make a media protest against the legal system. A protest can be made in a personal method. I realize that there a questions about the Sanford Police Department handling of the case. But there are governmental methods to make the protest known.

It is possible the forensic teams, FL State Attorney’s office, U.S. Justice Department, and others may show the shooting of Trayvon Martin as not unjust and not racially motivated. This type of announcement will be difficult to emotionally accept.

If the above announcement is made, this will hurt our Afro-American community when we need to address similar injustices. There have been and will continue to be factual and provable injustices.

If there is an announcement saying that the youth Trayvon Martin’s death in unjust, this will bring some emotional relief to the family and community. This announcement with its investigation could and can be obtain by the governmental and procedural methods established.

Trayvon Martin’s manner of death

March 21, 2012

Trayvon Martin is the 17-year-old youth who was killed by George Zimmerman (a 28-year-old man). This happened on February 26, 2012.

There is a Death Investigation proceeding. From a forensic nurse perspective, I want to know if this is a criminal or noncriminal homicide. It appears the local law enforcement agency is considering it a pending noncriminal homicide while an investigation is ongoing. This does not mean that it cannot be changed to a criminal homicide later.

With the U.S. Justice Department looking into this case, it will take longer to find a conclusion. Also with emotions very strong across the country, a conclusion will not be quick.

Alzheimer’s disease

February 7, 2012

Patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease usually experience symptoms in their mid to late 60s. These symptoms usually include memory loss and confusion, developing to severe dementia. Because of their confusion, Alzheimer’s patients in nursing homes sometimes wander from their rooms or beds and fall and injure themselves, accidents that can sometimes be fatal.
Forensic nursing may be required in such situations. Nursing homes are accountable for the accidents that occur in their facilities. The extent of the Alzheimer’s disease in the patient sometimes needs to be determined for legal reasons. This is accomplished by examining the brain and the presence of neuritic plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. (Lehne, Richard A. Pharmacology for Nursing Care, 6th ed.)

Death and birth control

December 4, 2011

Forensic nurses are regularly involved with examining the dead and helping to determine the cause of death. It can be important in the case of a deceased female to have a record of contraceptive use and past abortions. These birth control measures can affect the body system by causing hypertension, thromboembolic disorders, glucose intolerance, or hormone changes. In abuse cases it is helpful to know if the woman was on her menstrual period to help identify bleeding as natural or a result of trauma.

President Obama will not release public pictures of the dead Osama bin Laden

May 5, 2011

Is President Barack Obama correct on this decision not to release disfigured photos of the dead Osama Bin Laden? Yes, he is.

The spirit of international and US laws prohibit the public release of photos of the deceased. Note that the US is unhappy when pictures of dead Americans are broadcasted publicly.

Morally speaking, most Americans would not want pictures of their disfigured passed away loved one broadcasted publicly. The moral, social and spiritual beliefs of a victim and family members should be taken into account. Also the moral, social, and spiritual belief of the country in possession of the pictures should be taken into account.

Ethically speaking, members of the Forensic Medical and Nursing profession are not permitted to show public pictures of the deceased. This brings me to another point. Forensic physicians, nurses, and personnel should be involved with the handling of Osama bin Laden and others. Forensic healthcare personnel are trained to be objective. They will confirm the cause of death, the time of death, the identification, and identify extra factors. The forensic healthcare personnel are removed from political and military biases. Their training includes caring for victims of war on both sides and innocent bystanders.
