Why Hawaiian hot spots are so much better than others in the Pacific Northwest
When it comes to medical care, there are few places in the world where the number one priority is getting the best care possible.
That’s why when a doctor prescribes a particular drug or procedure, there’s often a big payoff if it’s used for a treatment that’s been shown to work well for a particular patient.
“We have to look at a patient’s specific needs and we have to use the right treatment,” said Dr. Daniel Caudill, a professor of emergency medicine at the University of Hawai’i-Mānoa and co-director of the Pacific Health Institute at UH Mānoae.
Caudill said there’s one patient in particular who has shown that he gets better after treatment with vitamin K3.
“The vitamin K helps the immune system.
It helps with inflammation and reduces inflammation, which is why vitamin K has such an impact on the immune systems of people with chronic diseases,” he said.
Cultivating a relationship with the patients and their families, and treating them well, is key to success.
But as with any medical intervention, there is a downside.
That can be costly.
In recent years, the number of people needing emergency medical services has exploded, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.
The U.S. spends $3 billion per year on emergency room visits, a total that includes nearly 1.6 million emergency room days.
That means more than three times as many people need help getting to the hospital than need it in the first place.
In addition, the average age of a person seeking medical help is rising, with about half of all people between the ages of 18 and 64 now in the emergency room, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Those rising numbers have led to a rising number of emergency room patients who are elderly and have chronic health conditions, like heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and some types of cancer.
It’s one of the main reasons the U.K. ranks second-worst in the U to get emergency medical help for chronic conditions, according a 2016 study by the Health Foundation, a charity focused on reducing the impact of medical interventions on health outcomes.
The issue has become especially acute in Hawai’í, where nearly half of the population is over 65.
“When you have an aging population that has high rates of chronic conditions like cancer and diabetes, they have an increased need for care,” said Lisa Davenport, a senior director at the Health Fund.
Davenport said she’s seeing the same kind of trends in the region.
In the last three years, she said, the Health Services Department has increased emergency room admissions by nearly 1,000.
But she’s concerned that more needs to be done to make sure that health care is accessible and accessible to all.
“It’s not just about the number, it’s about the quality of care,” she said.
“This is a very important issue for the health of our community and for all of us.
There are so many people that need to be protected from the stress of waiting in the ER and we need to make it as easy as possible to get medical care.”
Hawai’i Health has a team of volunteers working to develop a plan to make health care available in a way that’s both convenient and accessible for all.
Daventon said they’re working on a plan that includes a phone app, a web portal, and other tools to help connect the public with the care they need.
She said the department has received several phone calls from people who have used the app and are happy with the results.
“People are very appreciative and they’re very excited about it,” Daventer said.
