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.

Childhood goes up in smoke for Indonesian tobacco farm workers
24 May 2016 at 8:05pm

By Prasto Wardoyo and Eveline Danubrata PROBOLINGGO, Indonesia (Reuters) - Thirteen-year-old Siti Maryam says she suffers headaches and nausea after harvesting tobacco leaves with her bare hands during four years of working on her family's farm in Indonesia. Maryam, who is among the thousands of children a rights group says work in hazardous conditions on farms in the world's fifth-biggest producer of tobacco, spoke to Reuters in a field near the east Java city of Probolinggo. "I feel dizzy, get headaches and feel like vomiting," said Maryam, listing symptoms that match a condition experts call acute nicotine poisoning, or "green tobacco sickness".



Drugs and dung a bad mix for climate: study
24 May 2016 at 5:29pm

Scientists have discovered a potential threat to Earth's climate lurking in a dark and smelly place: the dung of cattle treated with antibiotics, a study said Wednesday. Lab studies revealed that dung pats from animals given a common antibiotic gave off more than double the methane, a potent greenhouse gas, than those of non-treated cows, a team wrote in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B. This highlights another danger of routinely using antibiotics on livestock, a practice which has already created a wave of drug resistance in humans.



E-cigarette use rose rapidly in UK, France: European study
24 May 2016 at 3:35pm

By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - The number of people in France and Britain who have tried an electronic or e-cigarette has risen sharply in just two years, according to a Europe-wide study published on Tuesday. It found that France had the highest use of e-cigarettes, with the proportion of those who had tried one nearly tripling to 21.3 percent from 7.3 percent. Using data from more than 53,000 people across Europe - with at least 1,000 from each country - the study also found the proportion of people across Europe who consider e-cigarettes dangerous nearly doubled to 51 percent from 27 percent.

Lilly says new type of pain drug could lessen need for opioids
24 May 2016 at 3:11pm
Eli Lilly and Co on Tuesday said it and partner Pfizer Inc aim to seek approval by 2018 for a new type of pain drug that could be an alternative to opioids for osteoarthritis, chronic back pain and cancer pain. The Indianapolis drugmaker said tanezumab, given by injection every eight weeks, could be a far more effective and appropriate alternative for chronic pain than opioids, without their abuse potential.


SEC raises concerns about Valeant's use of 'Non-GAAP' measures
24 May 2016 at 3:10pm

The SEC has questioned Valeant's practice of stripping away acquisition-related expenses from its "non-GAAP" or adjusted metrics, given that the drugmaker had been fueling growth through frenzied deal making. In multiple letters, the SEC said Valeant's management is in possession of all the facts and urged for adequate and accurate financial disclosures. "We are concerned with your overall format and presentation of the non-GAAP measures and believe revisions to your future earnings releases and investor materials are appropriate," the SEC said in a letter to the company in February.

'Doctors waiting for death' - Syrian aid workers appeal for more protection
24 May 2016 at 3:07pm

By Alex Whiting ISTANBUL (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Syrian aid workers have pleaded for the international community to do more to protect them from deadly attacks, and to make sure aid reaches those most in need, saying statements of support need to be translated into concrete action. Speaking on the second day of the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, the head of a medical organization inside Syria said people are now moving hospitals underground and into caves since international attempts to end attacks on them have failed. "Being a doctor inside the country means waiting for death," said Zedoun Al Zoubi, head of the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations (UOSSM), which works in Syria.



Lake Chad Basin is world's most neglected humanitarian crisis: U.N. aid chief
24 May 2016 at 3:06pm

By Alex Whiting ISTANBUL (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - West Africa's Lake Chad region is the world's most neglected humanitarian crisis, where poverty and desertification have been compounded by violence caused by Boko Haram, the U.N. aid chief said on Tuesday at the World Humanitarian Summit. The gap between the suffering and the humanitarian response may be bigger than in Syria, Iraq or Yemen, a senior Red Cross official said. Violence has forced more than 2.4 million people to flee their homes in Nigeria, Niger, Cameroon and Chad, according to the United Nations.



Food aid to avert famine threat in Boko Haram hit northeast Nigeria: U.N.
24 May 2016 at 3:01pm

By Kieran Guilbert DAKAR (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - More than 400,000 people in Boko Haram-hit northeast Nigeria will receive food aid to avert the threat of famine as the lean season approaches, the United Nations' World Food Programme (WFP) said on Tuesday. "It is a race against time as the lean and rainy season is upon us," WFP executive director Ertharin Cousin said at the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul. "We know that unless we act fast, and we act now, hunger will only deepen in the months to come." Poor sanitation, high rates of disease and a lack of access to food, water and healthcare could lead to a "famine-like situation" if aid is not urgently provided, the WFP said.



Monsanto rejects Bayer bid, but open to more talks
24 May 2016 at 3:00pm

Monsanto's decision, first reported earlier on Tuesday by Reuters, puts pressure on Bayer to decide whether to raise its bid, even as the company faces criticism from some shareholders that its $122-per-share cash offer is already too high. Monsanto shares ended trading up 3.1 percent at $109.3 in New York, substantially below Bayer's bid price, underscoring some investor skepticism that a deal can be done. Bayer shares rose 3.23 percent at 87.15 euros in Frankfurt.

24 May 2016 at 2:42pm
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - Massage is better than nothing for pain relief, according to a new review. The therapy may also be an acceptable choice for people considering other options like acupuncture and physical therapy. "It should be considered at least for musculoskeletal pain as a viable option in the mix of pain management techniques in these areas," said Dr. Wayne Jonas, president and CEO of the Samueli Institute in Alexandria, Virginia.

Liver donors may suffer long-term effects after donation
24 May 2016 at 2:41pm
?We were surprised donors continued to report some issues,? study leader Mary Amanda Dew told Reuters Health by phone. ?We thought by the time they were so far out from the date they donated part of their livers, they might not have difficulties.? Previous reports had tracked donors for only a year or two after donation. Organ donors are highly screened and are generally healthy psychologically and physically, she noted.
