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.

The cost of cheap drugs? Toxic Indian lake is 'superbug hotspot'
28 Sep 2016 at 4:22pm

By Zeba Siddiqui HYDERABAD, India (Reuters) - Centuries ago, Indian princes would bathe in the cool Kazhipally lake in Medak. Now, even the poorest villagers here in India's baking south point to the barren banks and frothy water and say they avoid going anywhere near it. A short drive from the bustling tech hub of Hyderabad, Medak is the heart of India's antibiotics manufacturing business: a district of about 2.5 million that has become one of the world's largest suppliers of cheap drugs to most markets, including the United States.

Congress nears passage of bill averting government shutdown
28 Sep 2016 at 3:54pm

The Congress moved closer on Wednesday to finishing a stop-gap funding bill that would avert a looming federal government shutdown, after Republicans and Democrats agreed to help Flint, Michigan, resolve its drinking water crisis. The Senate voted 72-26 to adopt the short-term continuing resolution, or CR, that would keep federal agencies operating from Saturday to Dec. 9. The vote sent the measure on to the House of Representatives, which was expected to approve it late on Wednesday.

Teenager killed father before opening fire at South Carolina school
28 Sep 2016 at 3:52pm
By Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - A 14-year-old boy shot and killed his father then drove to an elementary school in South Carolina and opened fire with a handgun, wounding two children and a teacher on Wednesday, authorities said. Volunteer firefighter Jamie Brock held the suspect down on a playground behind Townville Elementary School in Anderson County until police arrived, giving a teacher time to get students inside the building, authorities said. "He risked his life to mitigate this incident," Anderson County emergency services director Taylor Jones said of Brock.

Painkillers linked to heart failure: study
28 Sep 2016 at 3:51pm

Widely used prescription and non-prescription painkillers are associated with an increased risk of hospital admission for heart failure, according to a study released Thursday. The drugs in question are so-called NSAIDs, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, including several known as COX-2 inhibitors. The broad link between the use of NSAIDs and heart failure is well established, but which drugs pose the greatest risk, and at what doses, remains poorly understood.

California, eyeing Cosby, ends statute of limitations for rape
28 Sep 2016 at 3:51pm

California Governor Jerry Brown on Wednesday signed a bill to end the statute of limitations for rape, a measure inspired by accusations against comedian Bill Cosby, some of which surfaced decades after alleged crimes occurred. Cosby, who built a long career on family friendly comedy, including his long-running NBC sitcom "The Cosby Show," has steadfastly denied ever assaulting anyone and has insisted that all his sexual encounters were consensual.

U.S. agency told Mylan that EpiPen was misclassified
28 Sep 2016 at 3:49pm

By Diane Bartz WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. federal health agency said on Wednesday it had "expressly advised" Mylan NV that the drugmaker had improperly classified its EpiPen emergency allergy treatment in a way that allowed it to pay lower rebates to state health programs. The disclosure comes as U.S. lawmakers and prosecutors are investigating Mylan over steep price hikes for the EpiPen device which have rendered the drug unaffordable for a growing number of families. A least one state has launched an investigation into whether Mylan failed to pay proper rebates to the Medicaid program for the poor.

Clinton enlists former foe Sanders in appeal for youth votes in presidential ...
28 Sep 2016 at 3:19pm

By Jonathan Allen DURHAM, N.H. (Reuters) - Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton shared a stage with former rival Senator Bernie Sanders on Wednesday to appeal for youth votes in the Nov. 8 election as opinion polls show a close race with Republican Donald Trump. Clinton told an audience at the University of New Hampshire that she would make college affordable if she wins the White House, the kind of promise that won Sanders many young supporters during the Democratic nominating contest. "We should and we will make public colleges tuition-free for families earning less than $125,000 a year," Clinton said.

Twitter may open door to people's thoughts on heart health
28 Sep 2016 at 2:29pm
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - Twitter may be a rich vein researchers can mine for data on what people think and say about cardiovascular disease, according to a new study. "We were really interested in understanding more about how the public uses social media to discuss important topics," said senior author Dr. Raina Merchant, of Penn Medicine Social Media and Health Innovation Lab at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. For the new study, they searched approximately 10 billion English-language Twitter posts - known as tweets - originating in the U.S. between July 2009 and February 2015 for messages about five cardiovascular and related diseases: high blood pressure, heart attack, cardiac arrest, heart failure and diabetes.

U.S. agency says it advised Mylan that EpiPen was misclassified
28 Sep 2016 at 2:17pm

A U.S. health agency said on Wednesday it had "expressly advised" Mylan that the company had misclassified the EpiPen in a way that led to the company paying a lower rebate to states. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, said in a statement it has "on multiple occasions, provided guidance to the industry and Mylan on the proper classification of drugs and has expressly advised Mylan that their classification of EpiPen for purposes of the Medicaid Drug Rebate program was incorrect." Mylan classified the EpiPen with the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program as a non-innovator multiple source drug, which pays a rebate of 13 percent to states, rather than innovator, which pays a rebate of a minimum of 23.1 percent.

Old heart device wires tied to complications, death risk
28 Sep 2016 at 2:14pm
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - Patients with pacemakers and defibrillators are about twice as likely to have minor and life-threatening complications when having them removed if old wiring was left behind in earlier procedures to replace or upgrade devices, a U.S. study suggests. Researchers analyzed data on surgery outcomes for 1,386 patients having devices removed because of infections, including a subset of 323 people who had abandoned leads ? the wires that deliver energy from pacemakers and defibrillators to the heart muscle. Doctors were unable to remove the devices and all of the leads without serious complications in 13 percent of patients who had abandoned wires, compared to a 3.7 percent failure rate for patients who didn?t have abandoned leads.

NBTY to genetically test herbal supplements under NY accord
28 Sep 2016 at 1:49pm
By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - NBTY Inc, one of the largest U.S. herbal supplement producers, has agreed to conduct an advanced form of genetic testing to ensure that its herbal products contain what their labels say they contain, New York's attorney general said on Wednesday. The agreement followed a probe in which the office of Attorney General Eric Schneiderman found that products sold as herbal supplements at GNC, Target, Walgreen and Wal-Mart stores in New York lacked genetic material for plants shown on labels. NBTY, whose brands include Nature's Bounty and Solgar, is the third herbal supplement producer, following GNC Holdings Inc and Nature's Way Products Inc, to agree to tighter quality control under settlements with the attorney general.

Egypt approves tougher jail terms for FGM
28 Sep 2016 at 1:40pm
Egypt has approved a law that will increase jail terms for those who perform female circumcisions, raising the maximum sentence to seven years from two, according to the state's official gazette on Wednesday. Genital cutting of girls, often referred to as female genital mutilation (FGM) or circumcision, is banned in Egypt but the practice remains common as a rite of passage and is often viewed as a way to protect their chastity. More than nine in 10 women and girls aged 15 to 49 in Egypt have undergone FGM, but the number has declined in recent years, according to data collected by the United Nations.

Soccer-Vardy is a "genetic freak" like Bolt, says Leicester City scientist
28 Sep 2016 at 1:04pm
By Chris Bertram MANCHESTER, England Sept 28 (Reuters) - England striker Jamie Vardy is a "genetic freak" like nine-times Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt, Leicester City's head of sport science Kevin Paxton said. Vardy enjoys an unorthodox lifestyle in an era of increasing emphasis on marginal gains from advanced sports science, meaning his electric pace and immense stamina are largely natural. In his autobiography, the Leicester forward revealed his unusual warm-up methods which included drinking a glass of port the night before a game while on match days he consumed several cans of a popular energy drink as well as a cup of double espresso.

Warplanes knock out Aleppo hospitals as Russian-backed assault intensifies
28 Sep 2016 at 12:41pm

By Ellen Francis and Tom Perry BEIRUT (Reuters) - Russian or Syrian warplanes knocked two hospitals out of service in the besieged rebel sector of Aleppo on Wednesday and ground forces intensified an assault in a battle which the United Nations said had made the city worse than a slaughterhouse. Two patients died in one of the hospitals and other shelling killed six residents queuing for bread under a siege that has trapped 250,000 people with food running out. "The warplane flew over us and directly started dropping its missiles ... at around 4 a.m.," Mohammad Abu Rajab, a radiologist at the M10 hospital, the largest trauma hospital in the city's rebel-held sector, told Reuters. is part of GropWeb Network, online properties of GroupWeb Media LLC.
