Schena Ostomy Technologies to be featured on 21st Century Health Television March 3, 2012

(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 01, 2012 ) Schena Ostomy Technologies has been selected to appear on 21st Century Health, an award winning international television series. Schena Ostomy Technologies is dedicated to improving an ostomates lifestyle through the life changing EZ-Clean™ products that they have developed. From personal life experience, Schena Ostomy Technologies saw the need for products that make coping with the day to day realities of ostomy more acceptable and made them a reality. Schena Ostomy offers products that can be life changing. The pouch systems offered are Medicare Approved. Ken Schena has five US Patents and two Foreign Patents with more pending.
The EZ-Clean is a system designed to make life easier for those with an Ostomy to service a Colostomy or Ileostomy. The system uses liquid (water) under pressure to clean the inside of the pouch and exposed surfaces of the stoma in less than 3 minutes. The water feed system is a one time purchase for use with replacement pouches purchased as needed. A Water Feed Adapter is available for use with plastic container bottled water to clean the pouch when no utility water source is available.

The EZ-Clean pouch has a manifold built into the top interior to disperse the water, under pressure, to totally cleanse the interior of the pouch and the exposed stoma area. There is an inlet at the top of the pouch to permit easy hook-up of the water feed system (Portable or Fixed). The pouch is a one piece design with the water inlet & manifold permanently attached. This is possible because of the ability of the user to thoroughly clean the pouch while still attached to the body, sitting on a commode (toilet). Evacuated contents are deposited in the toilet and simply flushed away without any personal contact. When the EZ-System is not being used, the pouch can function like any other drainable pouch with the added advantage of the user being able to easily vent any accumulated gas through the inlet. It is important to note this characteristic because anyone concerned about becoming home bound by this system should realize this pouch can function like any drainable without using EZ-Clean. The system can operate in a range of 20 to 80 lbs of water pressure.

Indiana agrees to expand Medicaid under Obamacare
27 Jan 2015 at 9:49am

Indiana on Tuesday became the 28th U.S. state to agree to expand the Medicaid program for the poor under President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law, a move that will extend health coverage to 350,000 low-income state residents, the administration said. The agreement was announced separately by the Obama administration and Indiana Governor Mike Pence, a staunch Republican conservative, whose involvement could prompt other so-called red states to pursue versions of the Medicaid expansion that include market-based features favored by conservatives. The expansion, called Healthy Indiana Plan 2.0, will begin offering coverage on Feb. 1 with conservative hallmarks including requirements that beneficiaries contribute to premiums and other costs through what state officials described as a health savings account. More than 10 million people have gained health coverage under Obama's Affordable Care Act, many through Medicaid and federally subsidized private insurance, according to independent researchers and government officials.


Dominican Republic moves to ease abortion ban, challenges remain: rights group
27 Jan 2015 at 9:42am
By Anastasia Moloney BOGOTA (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - A presidential decision to ease the Dominican Republic's ban on abortion is a landmark victory for women's rights, but ensuring women can access legal and potentially life-saving abortions remains a challenge, a rights group has said. President Danilo Medina recommended that lawmakers amend the criminal code to allow abortion in cases of rape, incest, a deformed fetus or when a woman's life is in danger. Lower chamber lawmakers accepted part of Medina's recommendation last month, allowing abortion in cases when a women's life was in danger. "It's definitely a victory and historic step that President Medina has spoken in a statement in favor of women's rights and said the old criminal code violates a woman's right to life, health and autonomy," said Monica Arango, regional director for Latin America and the Caribbean at the Centre for Reproductive Rights.


Iowa Governor Branstad released from Des Moines hospital
27 Jan 2015 at 9:35am

(Reuters) - Six-term Iowa Governor Terry Branstad was released from a Des Moines hospital on Tuesday morning in good condition after being treated for mild flu with dehydration, the governor's office said. Branstad, 68, became ill on Monday during a visit to a research facility in Johnston, Iowa, a Des Moines suburb. Both Branstad and Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds, who has been battling a cold, have canceled public events for the rest of the week to allow time to rest and recuperate, the governor's office said. "We have ruled out other contributing factors, including cardiac issues and stroke," said Kevin J. Cunningham, Branstad's personal physician, in a statement.



Uber says ride services reduce drunk driving
27 Jan 2015 at 9:31am

Uber, a ride service facing legal challenges around the world, on Tuesday released a survey showing that people are less likely to drive home after drinking alcohol after such businesses started operating in their cities. The results of the survey, done with advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving, were based on a December poll of 807 adults in the largest U.S. cities where Uber operates. Uber customers who request rides over the upcoming Super Bowl weekend, a time that traditionally sees a spike in drunk driving, can opt to donate $1 to Mothers Against Drunk Driving by typing in the code UBERMADD, it said. Other factors, such as intensified campaigns against drunk driving, may have contributed to the numbers, Uber executive Jonathan Hall said in a phone interview.



Obama to seek more funds for antibiotic-resistant bacteria fight
27 Jan 2015 at 9:27am

President Barack Obama will request a doubling of funds for fighting and preventing antibiotic-resistant bacteria in his 2016 budget, the White House said Tuesday. The budget blueprint to be unveiled in February will request $1.2 billion, twice the amount granted by Congress in 2015. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that each year at least two million illnesses and 23,000 deaths are caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the United States. Of this amount, more than $650 million would go to the National Institutes of Health and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority.


In response to Ukraine crisis, Berlin to launch new think tank
27 Jan 2015 at 9:13am
By Andreas Rinke BERLIN (Reuters) - In a recognition that Germany needs to rethink its relations with Russia as a result of the crisis in Ukraine, the foreign ministry plans to invest millions of euros in a new institute devoted to the study of post-Soviet states. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is the driving force behind the think tank, which is to receive 2.5 million euros a year in government money, and focus on themes -- Russian society, the economy, and its regions -- that are not covered in depth by existing institutes. "Strengthening our understanding of eastern Europe has been a top priority of the foreign minister," said one official close to Steinmeier, whose party, the Social Democrats (SPD), rules in coalition with Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives. "This is all the more important given the paradigm shift in our relations with Russia since the annexation of Crimea." The SPD's attitudes towards Russia were shaped by former chancellor Willy Brandt's "Ostpolitik" engagement policy in the 1970s and the crumbling Soviet Union's support for German reunification.


Gates, UK take lead in $7.5 billion pledge for children's vaccines
27 Jan 2015 at 8:56am

By Stephen Brown BERLIN (Reuters) - International donors pledged $7.5 billion on Tuesday to immunize 300 million children in poor countries against deadly diseases such as diarrhea and pneumonia. At a Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) conference in Berlin, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and the British government topped the donations list at $1.55 billion and $1.5 billion respectively. German development minister Gerd Mueller said the total reached $7.54 billion, surpassing GAVI's target of $7.5 billion, despite a stronger dollar complicating funding efforts. China, a recipient of GAVI assistance early last decade, has now become a donor.



Rio 2016 says clean up target for sail bay still holds
27 Jan 2015 at 8:51am

By Stephen Eisenhammer RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - A pledge to clean Rio de Janeiro's bay where sailing will be held in 2016 still stands despite the state's top environment official suggesting the target was unattainable, said the Olympic organizing committee. The cleaning of Guanabara Bay was a key part of Rio's bid and has long been a goal of various local governments. "The position of the committee and the target of the State government to treat 80 percent of the raw sewage remains in place," the organizing committee's head of communications Mario Andrada told reporters on Tuesday. "There is a fundamental difference between cleaning 80 percent of the bay and treating 80 percent of sewage that runs into the bay," Andrada said, specifying the latter was the metric the organizing committee was working with and which was still attainable.

Georgia to execute man despite claims he is mentally disabled
27 Jan 2015 at 7:54am
Warren Lee Hill, 54, is scheduled to be executed by injection at 7 p.m. His attorneys are appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles on Tuesday refused to stop the execution, as did the state Supreme Court last week. Hill was condemned for beating prisoner Joseph Handspike to death in August 1990. Hill's supporters include former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, the American Bar Association, the American Civil Liberties Union, the European Union and the Georgia chapter of the NAACP, according to his attorneys.

Novartis pharma boss expects pressure on cancer drug prices
27 Jan 2015 at 6:24am
Payers are likely to put pressure on drugmakers to lower the cost of cancer medicines, particularly when alternative treatments are available, the head of Novartis' pharma division said on Tuesday. "I think there will be increased pressure on oncology prices," David Epstein, head of Novartis' pharmaceutical division told an analyst call after the company reported fourth-quarter results. Earlier this month it said cost savings on expensive cancer treatments could be achieved if the company were involved earlier in the decision-making process.

U.N. secures pledge to free 3,000 South Sudan child soldiers
27 Jan 2015 at 6:18am
The United Nations has secured a pledge for the release of about 3,000 child soldiers in South Sudan, in what it called "one of the largest ever demobilisations of children". The children, aged between 11 and 17, were recruited by the South Sudan Democratic Army (SSDA) Cobra Faction, led by David Yau Yau, and some had been fighting for almost four years. Two hundred and eighty children were released on Tuesday at a village in Jonglei State, the U.N. children's agency UNICEF said, and further releases will take place over the next month. "These children have been forced to do and see things no child should ever experience," said Jonathan Veitch, UNICEF's South Sudan representative.


Workouts get smart, streamlined with tech-personalized routines
27 Jan 2015 at 6:13am

By Dorene Internicola NEW YORK (Reuters) - When 55-year-old Connie Antoniou visits her fitness studio, the leg press knows her name. ?The machines are programmed for my body so they take the guesswork out and I?m not worried I?ll injure myself,? said Antoniou, an Illinois realtor. It just took too long.? An increasing number of gyms are using high-tech exercise equipment that can prompt, respond and adapt to individuals in what fitness experts say may signal a future that frees clients from trying to gauge how fast, how hard or how long to work out. Now her trainer at The Exercise Coach fitness studio punches a code into the fitness machine, her name pops up on a screen, and a session tailored to her personal goals and strengths begins.


Plague cases rise in Madagascar, fear of more epidemics: WHO
27 Jan 2015 at 5:48am
Plague has killed 57 people out of 213 known cases in Madagascar and more deaths are feared after recent flooding forced tens of thousands of people from their homes and set rats on the run, the World Health Organization said on Tuesday. The U.N. agency's first update since late November, when there were 119 cases including 40 deaths, was based on new figures from the Health Ministry.


The 6 Blessings Of Mental Illness
27 Jan 2015 at 5:14am

Yes, you read that title correctly. I could not have written those six words 30 years ago, when panic episodes, anxiety disorders and Tourette's syndrome clouded my view. But now I see that though the fog was exceptionally dark, good things were developing, good things inside of me. Conventional wisdom states that certain environments lend...
