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.

Texas abortion law could send women across borders
12 Aug 2014 at 1:40pm

Calif. bill would pay for lawyers for unaccompanied minor immigrants
21 Aug 2014 at 5:55pm

California would spend $3 million on lawyers for unaccompanied minors arriving in California from Central America under a proposal announced Thursday by top California Democrats. Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, along with Attorney General Kamala Harris and the leaders of both houses of the legislature, said they planned to submit legislation authorizing the expenditure to help children who have been streaming over borders in Southwest states since last fall. ?It is critical that these children, many of whom are fleeing extreme violence in Central America, have access to due process and adequate legal representation.?? Central American children began flooding the border at crossing points in Texas earlier this year, overwhelming local officials and leading the federal government to send thousands to other states for processing. By the end of June, about 3,000 of the children had been sent to California, and more have come since.



Scientist Dawkins in Twitter storm over Down's Syndrome
21 Aug 2014 at 5:51pm

Scientist Richard Dawkins apologised on Thursday for causing a "feeding frenzy" on Twitter after he said it would be immoral not to abort a foetus with Down's Syndrome. Dawkins, who has been at the centre of a series of controversies on social media, responded to a user who said they would face a "real ethical dilemma" if they discovered they were expecting a baby with Down's Syndrome.

ATLANTA (AP) ? At least one of the two American aid workers who were infected with the Ebola virus was to be discharged Thursday from an Atlanta hospital, a spokeswoman for the aid group he was working for said.


Two American Ebola patients leave hospital
21 Aug 2014 at 4:14pm

Two American missionaries who were sickened with Ebola while working in Liberia and were treated with an experimental drug are doing better and have left the hospital, doctors said Thursday. Doctor Kent Brantly, 33, and Nancy Writebol, 60, both Christian aid workers, were infected with Ebola in Monrovia last month as the largest outbreak in history swept West Africa. They were airlifted to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia for treatment in special isolation units three weeks ago. "The discharge from the hospital of both these patients poses no public health threat," said Bruce Ribner, director of Emory's Infectious Disease Unit.


U.S. to tighten restrictions on common opioid painkillers
21 Aug 2014 at 4:10pm
The move comes as health and law enforcement officials try to curb a rising tide of prescription drug abuse. Nearly three out of four prescription drug overdoses are caused by opioid painkillers, according to federal data. "Almost seven million Americans abuse controlled-substance prescription medications, including opioid painkillers, resulting in more deaths from prescription drug overdoses than auto accidents," DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart said in a statement announcing the move on Thursday. In the future, products such as Vicodin that combine hydrocodone with another substance such as acetaminophen or aspirin, will be classed as Schedule II products, in line with the opioids oxycodone and morphine.


Global warming 'hiatus' means heat is hiding in ocean
21 Aug 2014 at 3:36pm

An apparent slowdown in the Earth's surface warming in the last 15 years could be due to that heat being trapped in the deep Atlantic and Southern Ocean, researchers said Thursday. The findings in the journal Science suggest that such cycles tend to last 20-35 years, and that global warming will likely pick up again once that heat returns to surface waters. "Every week there's a new explanation of the hiatus," said co-author Ka-Kit Tung, a University of Washington professor of applied mathematics and adjunct faculty member in atmospheric sciences. Tung and Xianyao Chen of the Ocean University of China studied deep-sea temperatures from floats that sample the water as deep as 6,500 feet (2,000 meters) depth.

21 Aug 2014 at 3:25pm

Two American missionaries who contracted Ebola while treating patients in Liberia have left hospital after making a full recovery, doctors said on Thursday, as authorities in the west African nation struggled to deal with their dead. Doctors Kent Brantly, 33, and Nancy Writebol, 60, caught the disease in Monrovia in the midst of an outbreak that has killed 1,350 people since March in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.


AA can help young adults, but mechanisms unclear: study
21 Aug 2014 at 3:09pm
By Krystnell Storr NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Alcoholics Anonymous can help people, young and old, recover from drinking problems, but young adults seem to benefit mainly - and only - from certain aspects of the program, according to a small U.S. The results may help to better tailor AA for a new generation, researchers say, and help young adults feel more comfortable in the heart of the program, the group meetings. ?We now know that in addition to the mechanisms we traditionally target, there may be other mechanisms that are particularly important for younger people,? said Bettina Hoeppner, a psychologist at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts, who led the study. Hoeppner and her team write that young people - who may face more temptations to drink in a social context and have shorter addiction histories, and hence less to share - may face a ?barrier? to becoming engaged with the values of AA.

Oil spill that fouled Mexican river will take months to clean up
21 Aug 2014 at 3:01pm
An oil pipeline spill that contaminated a river in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon will take months to clean up, the country's top water authority said on Thursday. The 24-inch Madero-Cadereyta pipeline, owned by national oil company Pemex, was ruptured when thieves attempted to tap into it, the company said on Sunday. The pipeline feeds crude to Pemex's nearby Cadereyta refinery. David Korenfeld, head of Mexico's national water commission, told reporters in Mexico City that the spill extended across a 6 kilometer (4 mile) stretch of the Rio San Juan, but had been contained by floating barriers.


Instant noodles carry health risks for women: study
21 Aug 2014 at 2:41pm

Women who eat instant noodles, like Ramen, at least two times a week face a greater risk of high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar and high cholesterol, US researchers said Thursday. The study looked at data from 10,711 adults -- just over half of whom were women -- in the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Researchers at Harvard University found that there was a 68 percent higher risk of metabolic syndrome among women, but not men, who ate instant noodles more than twice per week. Metabolic syndrome is a group of conditions that raise the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
