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.

Qatar considering special courts for World Cup offenders
8 Feb 2016 at 8:19am

Qatar may create special courts during the 2022 soccer World Cup to deal quickly and "very gently" with alcohol-consuming fans who break the law in a conservative Muslim state where public drunkenness is prohibited, a Qatari official said on Monday. Qatari officials have said that the 500,000 football fans expected to descend on their country during the World Cup will be allowed to consume alcohol in designated zones, but how to best balance the country's cultural values with FIFA's requirements for the tournament remains contentious. "I know in South Africa there where specific courts established during the World Cup for this kind of thing, and that is something we were discussing with FIFA," the Gulf state's 2022 Committee chief Hassan Al Thawadi told journalists on the sidelines of a sports conference in Doha.

Cognizant forecasts slowest revenue growth in 14 years
8 Feb 2016 at 8:12am
IT services provider Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp forecast its slowest quarterly revenue growth in 14 years, adding to mounting worries about clients keeping a tight lid on technology spending. Cognizant, whose rivals include Indian IT services firms such as Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys Ltd , said the financial services sector was off to a slow start this year. "They're certainly slowing down some of the discretionary spend as well as looking for ways to optimize even on the run-the-business activities through efficiency and more effectiveness," President Gordon Coburn told Reuters.

Drop in prostate cancer screening reveals split among doctors
8 Feb 2016 at 8:12am
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - - After U.S. guidelines advised against routine tests, declines in prostate cancer screening have been sharper among primary care doctors than urologists, according to a new study that suggests the medical community remains divided over the best way to look for these tumors. The next year, testing rates for prostate cancer among men aged 50 to 74 years old dropped to about 16 percent among primary care physicians, from roughly 37 percent in 2010 before new guidelines took effect. ?There is much evidence that men with limited life expectancy do not benefit from PSA testing, and I think experts can agree on that,? said senior study author Dr. Quoc-Dien Trinh, a urologist at Brigham and Women?s Hospital in Boston.

Ranking Hospital Food: The Good, The Bad and the Very Bad
8 Feb 2016 at 8:09am

There is wide agreement that the quality and choices of food at most hospitals is abysmal.

U.N. panel says WHO must reform now or endanger thousands of lives
8 Feb 2016 at 7:45am

The World Health Organization's emergency response capabilities are "lacking" and will put thousands of lives at risk if they are not reformed now, a high-level United Nations panel convened in the wake of the Ebola crisis said. "This may be last opportunity to ensure the WHO is empowered" to build an effective emergency response capacity, warned an advance unedited copy of the UN panel's report, made available online over the weekend in a link on the UN's daily Journal website.

Top dog: scientists measure canine IQ
8 Feb 2016 at 7:41am

Researchers from the London School of Economics (LSE) and University of Edinburgh said they used a "purpose-built barn" to measure navigation ability, speed and skills in following a pointed arm. Dogs also develop dementia in similar ways to their human masters, the researchers said in a research paper published in Intelligence, meaning that the findings could be comparable to human beings. A dog that is fast and accurate at one task has a propensity to be fast and accurate at another," the researchers said.

"I fully trust the athletes and trainers," sports minister Vitaly Mutko told state news agency TASS, referring to the national cycling team.

UK cost agency rebuffs Sanofi cholesterol drug but backs Amgen's
8 Feb 2016 at 7:17am

Britain's cost watchdog has recommended that patients with high cholesterol should not get Sanofi and Regeneron's new cholesterol-lowering injection Praluent, although Amgen's similar drug Repatha will be available. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) cost watchdog said in draft guidance on Monday that Praluent's benefits were uncertain and it was likely to overshoot standard cost-effectiveness thresholds. NICE, which decides if drugs should be used on the state health service, had initially reached a similar decision for Amgen's product in November.

Pot fans, foes fume as Washington DC tests limits of high life
8 Feb 2016 at 7:08am

By Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Almost a year has passed since it became legal to smoke, but not sell, marijuana in Washington, D.C., and pot enthusiasts and opponents alike are chafing under a compromise that leaves smokers in a haze over how to obtain their weed. "It is kind of the Alice in Wonderland of cannabis legalization. It's like there's all these rules and regulations that no one follows," said Alex Jeffrey, executive director of DC NORML, a marijuana reform advocacy group.

United Nations war crimes investigators have provided judicial assistance to various countries in response to 15 requests for information on foreign fighters in Syria, investigator Carla del Ponte said on Monday.

WASHINGTON (AP) ? President Barack Obama is asking Congress for more than $1.8 billion in emergency funding to help fight the Zika virus.

White House seeks $1.8 billion in emergency funds for Zika virus
8 Feb 2016 at 7:03am

President Barack Obama will ask the U.S. Congress for more than $1.8 billion in emergency funding to fight the mosquito-borne Zika virus in the United States and other countries, the White House said on Monday. Most of the money would be spent in the United States on testing, surveillance and response in affected areas, and on research into a vaccine, with some funds also going to support countries already grappling with the virus, the White House said. The World Health Organization has declared an international health emergency over the rapidly spreading virus, because scientists suspect it can cause microcephaly, a birth defect marked by an abnormally small head.

For sugar tax supporters, 2016 may be the sweet spot
8 Feb 2016 at 6:49am

By Martinne Geller LONDON (Reuters) - 2016 could be the year of the sugar tax, as several large nations consider levies on sweetened food and drinks to battle obesity and fatten government coffers. For years, public health advocates have called for such measures as one prong of an attack against a growing obesity epidemic that has fueled rates of heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses, in both the developed and developing worlds. Opponents say taxes provide no health benefits, unfairly target certain types of product, hurt jobs and burden the poor.

8 Feb 2016 at 6:33am

By Anthony Esposito and Felipe Iturrieta SANTIAGO (Reuters) - Concerns over the Zika virus have not affected ticket sales at LATAM Airlines' TAM Brazilian unit, the regional carrier said on Monday. "So far, there has been no impact on reservations at TAM ... due to the cases of Zika virus in Brazil and in other locations where the airline operates," Chile-headquartered LATAM said. The rapidly spreading Zika virus, suspected to be linked to thousands of birth defects in Brazil, appears to be discouraging some tourists from traveling to Latin America and the Caribbean. is part of GropWeb Network, online properties of GroupWeb Media LLC.
