The BackBone Wedge Even Helped Fritz In His Recovery!

Gwen Jewell is the CEO & Founder of the Backbone Wedge, a revolutionary new wedge that prevents bedsores that is changing lives for people who are immobile.

Get a couple BackBone Wedges to elevate both sides of your body to feel like you’re floating in space. Also be sure to check out her heel protectors and other products that are available.”

— Eric Thomas Patrick, BackBone Wedge Client

REDWOOD CITY, CA, USA, February 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the prevalence of pressure sores at an all time epidemic high in the United States, millions of people are looking for a way to prevent and treat this horrible condition.

Billions of dollars are spent every year to prevent pressure sore, yet still more than 2.5 million people will develop them each year and over 60,000 of those people will die as a consequence of complications resulting from them.

A pressure sore is localized injury to skin and/or underlying tissue that can extend down to the bone, and it results from sustained pressure particularly in patients who need to stay in bed or immobile for periods of time.

Eric Thomas Patrick, a spinal cord injury patient and client of Gwen’s BackBone Wedge says that regular wedges that you can buy “for super cheap, super suck”. They are “hard and don’t maintain their shape”.

The problem with most wedges is that they tend to become hard after 15 minutes. So the initial pressure relief becomes pressure inducing on the exact location of the pressure sore. More pressure on the pressure sore is exactly why they are very difficult to manage and treat. In response to the pressure, patients start twisting and turning whatever way they can trying to get comfortable again.

This can be hard on caregivers who feel they are constantly assisting their loved ones find the right position.

In addition, traditional wedges tend to push patients to a steep angle, which causes pressure on the bony prominences of the opposite side of the body. This can lead to new pressure sores in various locations.

The BackBone Wedge is different because there is zero pressure touching the pressure sore. As Eric says “My bootie floats with the BackBone Wedge!” And just as importantly, the BackBone Wedge doesn’t force you into an awkward angle. The BackBone Wedge easily slips under the patient, allowing the coccyx area (the bony prominence at the end of the spine and the area most likely to develop a pressure sore) to float in the air.

Patients love it because it gives them a sense of security knowing there is zero pressure on their pressure sore, and caregivers love it because they now reposition the patient less frequently than they used to.

And if that weren’t enough all on its own, Gwen Jewell, who herself is a wound care nurse and hospital lead of the pressure injury prevention program, the BackBone Wedge has an antimicrobial covering that can be easily cleaned.

Have you ever seen drainage from a pressure wound soak through a flimsy pillow cover and absorb into a wedge or pillow? It’s disgusting, and more than that, it’s a petri dish of infection. Infection is the dreaded complication of pressure sores that all patients and caregivers fear. Christopher Reeves, best known for his role as Superman, died from cardiac collapse and arrest which was a direct result of an infection from his pressure sore.

Gwen’s quest to create the perfect wedge is not only motivated by her love of her patients, but its personal too. Gwen’s father developed complications from a pressure sore while he was in the hospital, and Gwen’s brother has a spinal cord injury, so she is always on the lookout for reddened skin and ways to prevent pressure sores.

Gwen found various types of foam wedges, gel pods, air mattresses, alarm technology and pillows that either weren’t helpful, weren’t available in the community or weren’t able to adequately reduce pressure and a clean environment at the site of injury. Both her father and brother inspired her to find something better on the market.

Other technologies are out there that are used in the hospital setting that can tell nurses when it’s time to turn a patient, but those are not available in the community setting and they still don’t address the problem of finding a way to get the patient in a good position or reducing exposure to drainage from an existing pressure sore. Putting a new pillowcase over a bacteria-infested wedge isn’t an effective means of protecting the wound from infection.

When she couldn’t find what she needed, Gwen literally created what she thought was the perfect wedge. She had 3 major requirements – good positioning, pressure relief and antimicrobial.

For several years, Gwen worked on the perfect wedge design, using her brother as her test patient. And finally, her hard work paid off. Gwen designed the BackBone Wedge using her 3 simple principles.

First, the BackBone Wedge allows for easy positioning for both the patient and caregiver. The smooth surface and crescent shape of the BackBone Wedge make it easy to put in position, verify correct positioning, and because the patients don’t feel jammed on their sides, the need to reposition is dramatically reduced. As Gwen’s client Eric notes, “quad pads and other wedges aren’t designed for getting you off your back at all. With the BackBone Wedge, I don’t get thrown to the side and my body does not get twisted like it did with every other wedge out there.”

Second, the BackBone Wedge offloads pressure. The caregiver can literally slide his hand under the BackBone Wedge and feel that there is zero pressure on the pressure sore. This gives the patient and caregiver relief knowing that pressure sores can’t develop and old ones are able to heal.

And third, the BackBone Wedge has an antimicrobial covering, so if the wound does drain, the BackBone Wedge can be easily cleaned and disinfected, without worry of virulent bacteria growing on the material inside the wedge.

The BackBone Wedge has been trialed in hospitals nationally and internationally with great enthusiasm, however Gwen is most excited about the potential impact it will have for families like hers who can’t afford around the clock nurses and an unlimited supply of wedges at their disposal. Patients at home in the community now have access to the top of the line, hospital grade technology that actually prevents pressure sores.

Life & Hope Awards for Humanitarian Medical Service

March 21, 2019, at the Fontainebleau hotel, Miami Beach, over 1000 guests will show gratitude & celebrate ‘Life & Hope Awards for Humanitarian Medical Service’.

Understanding and peace are first fostered by extending a hand and building trust, characteristics that more than any others define the doctor-patient relationship.”

— Friends of Ziv

MIAMI BEACH, MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, UNITED STATES, February 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The inaugural ‘Life & Hope Awards for Humanitarian Medical Service” will be presented on March 21, 2019, at the Iconic Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach, Florida.

The gratitude and celebration that these awards represent will be granted in the presence of the highest representatives of the US government, ambassadorial envoys from different countries, some of the most distinguished doctors in America and the continent, religious, civic, business and academic leaders.

Over one thousands of some of the most influential people affecting the direction and values of our society will gather to honor this year:

Dr. Salman Zarka, the Israeli-Druze, director of Israel’s northernmost hospital. A 25 years veteran of the IDF, Dr. Zarka has been one of the architects of Israel’s humanitarian medical assistance to the people of Syria.

Dr. Rafael Gottenger, the Vice-President of the Venezuelan-American Medical Association. A reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Gottenger has partnered in more than 40 missions with Operation Smile. He has volunteered on the USNS Comfort, a hospital ship that docked off the coast of Colombia last year, providing desperately needed medical assistance to Venezuelan refugees.

The Life & Hope Awards will also recognize the work of “Project Brazil, a Sheltering Heart,” launched by “Fraternity Without Borders,” to help Venezuelan refugees crossing to Brazil.

Friends of Ziv Medical Center, a US 501(c)3 non-profit charity, will wrap up its campaign to raise funds to bring medicines and vaccines to Brazil’s northernmost health system. Overwhelmed by the needs of the thousands of Venezuelans, forced to leave their country, medical support for the refugees is a priority. “Ziv for Venezuelan Refugees,” will also join a team of Israeli doctors from Israel’s northernmost hospital offering their support to local institutions.

The Black and Tie Gala features:
• a celebrity red carpet,
• reception, and dinner, along with
• awards presentation and
• an inspiring, innovative, interactive, entertainment, involving guests and performers.

Three million Venezuelans, one in 12, have been compelled to pack up their lives and leave their homes, or face certain death, due to lack of food and medical attention.

Venezuela’s neighboring countries are overwhelmed by Venezuelan refugees arriving to their border seeking care, not available in their own country. The flow of Venezuelan refugees has been described as one of the most massive forced displacements in Western Hemisphere; the worst humanitarian crisis in Latin America’s modern history.

Friends of Ziv Medical Center is asking you to join in bringing teams of doctors and medicines, including vaccines, to support public health facilities in Colombian and Brazilian border regions providing medical assistance to the refugees.

Rocio Moustafa explores symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder

rocio moustafa

Ventura, California resident Rocio Moustafa explores common symptoms among those with narcissistic personality disorder.

VENTURA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A personality disorder characterized by an excessive need for admiration, exaggerated feelings of self-importance, and a lack of empathy for others, narcissistic personality disorder is commonly associated with a long-term pattern of abnormal and undesirable behaviors. That's according to Rocio Moustafa, an expert on the various maladaptations related to mood, behaviour, cognition, and perception based in Ventura, California, as she explores a number of common symptoms typically seen in those afflicted with the condition.

"Narcissism, and thus narcissistic personality disorder, often presents with many symptoms, chief among which, usually, are various issues surrounding a lack of self-control," explains Moustafa.

Self-control is defined as the ability to regulate one's thoughts and emotions in the face of temptation and other impulses. As an executive function and an aspect of inhibitory control, it is, therefore, a cognitive process which is vital for regulating behavior, according to Moustafa. "As such, a lack of self-control can, as a result, lead to numerous highly undesirable behaviors," she adds.

"Other symptoms of narcissism include an inability to handle any and all criticism," the expert continues, "plus a disregard for others' feelings and an overriding sense of entitlement."

Moustafa, who's currently based in Ventura, California, around 80 miles northwest of Los Angeles, reveals that those most commonly affected by narcissistic personality disorder are typically aged between 19 and 40 years old.

The condition is widely considered rare, with fewer than 200,000 cases identified in the U.S. per year according to Mayo Clinic, a nonprofit academic medical center based in Rochester, Minnesota.

"Another symptom of narcissistic personality disorder deals with control of others," adds Moustafa. Patients afflicted with this disorder, she says, will often attempt to control their partner using projective identification, placing guilt on them in order to achieve what they perceive as 'power' over the individual.

"While narcissistic personality disorder is most common among those aged between 19 and 40, age is not strictly a limiting factor," Moustafa continues, "with the disorder often proving particularly debilitating in relationships, with the afflicted party often trying to drain the energy of their partner who, quite often, finds himself or herself becoming a victim."

Currently, narcissistic personality disorder must be formally diagnosed by a qualified psychiatrist. While treatment is touted to help, the condition cannot be fully cured, according to the Ventura-based expert.

Narcissistic personality disorder is a chronic or lifelong condition, Moustafa reveals. "While the root cause of narcissistic personality disorder remains unknown, it likely involves a combination of environmental and genetic factors," she adds, wrapping up, "with the most effective treatment currently available centered around so-called talk therapy."

Rocio Moustafa is based in Ventura, a California coastal city northwest of Los Angeles. Further to narcissistic personality disorder, Moustafa's other areas of expertise include bipolar disorder, manic depressive disorder, insomnia, and other sleep disorders.

Gluteal Surgeons Unite To Defend Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

Surgeons Create WAGS to Promote Safer BBL Techniques and Avoid Deadly Outcomes

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, February 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — After years of misinformation and confusing statements regarding the dangers of the Brazilian Butt Lift ("BBL") Procedure, an Association has been formed to educate the public and help train surgeons in the safest BBL techniques. On February 1st, 2019, The World Association of Gluteal Surgeons (WAGS) was officially launched by some of the biggest names in Plastic Surgery. The group consists of surgeons who are committed to performing aesthetic gluteal shaping procedures in the safest manner possible.

The inaugural President of the Association is Michael Salzhauer, MD, more popularly known as "Dr. Miami", a board-certified plastic surgeon who became a house-hold name when he pioneered the broadcast of plastic surgery procedures to a mainstream social media audience.

The Association began with a few concerned surgeons and has quickly grown to seventy surgeons in eleven countries.

In recent years, the Brazilian Butt Lift has been reported as the most dangerous cosmetic surgery in the world with the highest mortality rate. What is often not reported is that the success of the procedure is highly technique and experience dependent. It is the contention of WAGS surgeons that the reported high-mortality rate is due to a burgeoning demand for this procedure by the general public and a lack of training opportunities for doctors. In reality, it is the lack of surgical training and education and not the procedure itself, which is the greatest danger. WAGS was created to fill this educational void in order to educate and protect patients.

WAGS surgeons have collectively performed nearly 100,000 successful BBL's and are here to clear up the confusion. Their goal is to educate the public about the safety and benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure and to provide the necessary resources to the surgeons around the world to perform this operation safely and achieve excellent results. WAGS surgeons are committed to putting patient safety FIRST.
