Top Winter Safety Tips

Winter is here, a good time to remember some basic safety tips to keep healthy and out of harm's way. Whether it's frigid temperatures or the aftermath or a snowstorm, it's important to be prepared and keep safety first.

It happens every year. Every winter, to be precise. Robert Linkeheimer, DO, FACOEP, medical director of the Doylestown Hospital Emergency Department, sees cases of heart attack brought on by shoveling, or fingers mangled by the blades of a snow blower.

Based on his more than two decades experience in emergency medicine, Dr. Linkenheimer has come up with a list of winter safety tips to keep people safe, healthy and out of the ER.

Dress Warmly

It might sound pretty simple, but it pays dress appropriately when going outdoors in winter weather to avoid medical issues like frostbite (frozen body tissue) and hypothermia (abnormally low body temperature, when your body loses heat faster than you can produce it).

"Dress in layers and make sure to protect any body parts that are exposed and vulnerable to frostbite," says Dr. Linkenheimer. "That includes fingers, toes, nose and ears."
  • Layers of warm clothes should be used along with hats, gloves, scarves, thick socks, and well-insulated boots.
  • Inner layers that absorb moisture and outermost layers that are windproof and waterproof are also helpful.
Children are at greater risk for frostbite than adults, because they lose heat from their skin more quickly and because they may not want to leave winter fun to go inside and warm up. Make sure children come in at regular intervals and remove any wet clothing. Have them drink something warm to warm up their core.

Adults should also enjoy a warm beverage, but avoid alcohol, which actually lowers the core temperature of the body.

Hypothermia sets in when body temperature dips below 95 degrees. A symptom is a change in mental status, which indicates a medical emergency.

Heat Your Home Safely

Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas that interferes with the delivery of oxygen in the blood to the rest of the body. It can come from things like improperly vented kerosene and gas space heaters, furnaces, woodstoves, gas stoves, fireplaces and water heaters, automobile exhaust from attached garages, and tobacco smoke.

December and January are the peak times for carbon monoxide poisoning, according to the National Safety Council, which suggests:
  • Installing a carbon monoxide detectors in your home and replace the battery each spring and fall.
  • Do not heat your home with a gas range or oven, and make sure generators are used in well-ventilated areas. Check your furnaces every year to make sure there are no leaks.
Symptoms for carbon monoxide poisoning, which is a medical emergency, include headache and flu-like symptoms (fatigue, weakness, dizziness).

Use Caution When Clearing Snow

Both shoveling and using a snow blower can be hazardous to your health.

"If you don't engage in physical activity on a regular basis and are a little older, it's not a good idea to shovel snow," advises Dr. Linkenheimer.

Improper lifting techniques can lead to back issues, or worse. "Overexerting in the cold weather can lead to heart attacks. We see it every year in the Emergency Department," says Dr. Linkenheimer.

Snow Shoveling Tips:

  • Take frequent breaks, pace yourself, and pay attention to how your body feels.
  • Don't eat a heavy meal before or soon after shoveling.
  • Don't drink alcohol before or immediately after shoveling.
  • Talk to your doctor. If you have cardiac or other health issues, are out of shape, and are over 40, make sure it's safe for you to shovel.

Snow Blower Safety:

  • Always turn the snow blower off before clearing any jams.
  • Never clear jams or clean the blower with your hands. Even when the machine is turned off, the blades can kick into gear and injure or sever fingers. Use a stick or some other implement to clear and clean the blower.
  • Refuel your snow blower when it is turned off, not while it is running.

Is Cancer Just “Bad Luck”?

Breast surgeon and breast cancer expert Donna Angotti, MD looks closely at recent research that considers "bad luck" to be a factor in cancer. There's a lot more to it than that, says Dr. Angotti.

An article about cancer published by the journal Science attracted a lot of media attention in recent weeks. In the article, two researchers from Johns Hopkins write that cancer is often times due to "bad luck," or random changes in an otherwise normal cell's DNA.

The researchers, Cristian Tomasetti, PhD and Bert Vogelstein, MD start with the observation that the risk of cancer is "millions" of time higher in certain tissues of the body than others. For instance, lung cancer and breast cancer are pretty common in the United States, while cancer of the thymus gland (an organ of the immune system) is not.

Let's begin with a basic understanding of cancer. First, a primer on stem cells. These special cells have the potential to develop into many different types of the body's cells during early life and growth. When they divide, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or "specialize" and become a specific cell such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell.

Once a stem cell has "specialized" it cannot go back and become any other type of cell. Once we are fully grown, stem cells remain on the job for our entire lives, replacing old worn-out cells and repairing wounds or injured cells or tissues. Usually this occurs in a very orderly fashion, but if something goes awry with the genetic material (DNA) of the cell and the usual repair mechanisms or immune system killer cells don't function properly, cancer results. This results in uncontrolled, uncoordinated cell growth that allows the abnormal cells to invade surrounding tissues and, eventually, break off and spread to other organs of the body (metastasize) where they interfere with normal function and can result in death.

For their research, Drs Tomasetti and Vogelstein decided to compare the total number of times stem cells from certain tissues divide in their lifetime, to a person's lifetime risk of developing cancer in that tissue in the United States. They did not look at two of the most common cancers in the U.S., breast and prostate cancers, because they said they could not find enough data.

Not surprisingly, the more times cells in a type of tissue divided during their lifetime, the greater the incidence of cancer in that tissue. This seems to make sense, because, if there is a risk to a behavior or process, that behavior or process has to happen in order for the consequence to occur. In other words, if someone never drives or rides in an automobile, there is almost no chance they will be involved in an automobile accident.

The authors believe that the data suggest that up to two-thirds of the genetic damage that results in cancer happens because of "bad luck". Random errors in the genetic code occur because the cells are dividing more frequently and, therefore, there is a greater chance of mistakes.

The researchers say only one-third of cancers are caused by genetic or environmental factors. Environmental factors include things like a person's diet, how much they exercise, and if they use tobacco products.

When questioned, the authors try to make it clear, however, that they are not suggesting taking up cigarette smoking without regard to increased lung cancer risk. They also suggest a greater emphasis on screening, or looking for cancers before they cause any symptoms.

But are their arguments strong or true?

Centuries ago, the great philosophers, Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle examined the science and art of logic, or the way the human mind analyzes things. They outlined a series of logical fallacies which are flaws in reasoning. One of those, called "False Cause," is an argument that presumes that a real or perceived relationship between things means that one is the cause of the other.

For example, a college environmental studies class investigates a fish pond and finds that the fish population has greatly decreased. They observe that there is also a decrease in the fishes' food supply and argue that that is a good reason for a decrease in fish. Later, however, they find that a manufacturing plant is discharging a dangerous toxin into the stream that feeds the pond, and that is the real reason there are less fish.

From other studies and observations, it does make sense that the more times cells divide the greater the chance there is for errors. But what role does the environment that the cells are exposed to play? Could poor diet choices and external toxins (like those found in cigarettes) limit our cells' ability to repair themselves or to destroy abnormal cells?

Recent literature shows that people who have a better immune response to their cancers, as shown by the number of immune cells that invade the cancerous tissues, have a better prognosis than people whose immune systems do not respond strongly. This has stimulated a whole new line of exciting research investigations.

The take home message?

We should not let this article change anything. There are clearly well established environmental causes of cancer that should be avoided. Smoking is strongly linked to the majority of lung cancers, and if you want to reduce your risk of lung cancer, don't smoke or stop if you do smoke. When cancer does occur, finding it at an earlier stage increases the likelihood the cancer can be cured, so it follows that screening programs should not be abandoned. Most of all, question what medical information is being presented to you and, if needed, use your relationship with your trusted health care provider to help you make good personal health decisions.

The Joy of Movement: Dancing with Parkinson’s

This dance class focuses on movement and balance, helping those with Parkinson's disease gain coordination and confidence.

There is more to this dance class than footwork and music. The class takes dancing down to its core: the actual act of moving.

"I want the students to move and feel the joy of moving," said Steve Weintraub, a professional dance instructor and self-described "dance guy."

He is specially trained to offer a dance class specifically for people with Parkinson's disease. In conjunction with Doylestown Hospital and The Parkinson Council, a Bala Cynwyd-based nonprofit that invests in research and quality-of-life programs for people with Parkinson's and their families in the region, the class is offered once a week at the Central Bucks Family YMCA in Doylestown.

"I always feel good at the end of class," said Naomi Welikson, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's nine years ago.

Parkinson's disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects a person's movement. Between 50,000 and 60,000 new cases of Parkinson's disease are diagnosed each year in the United States. Actor Michael J. Fox has raised awareness of the disease and is a well-known advocate for research for a cure.

The disease causes tremors, stiffness or slowing of movement. For about half of the dance class at the Y the students are seated, practicing arm and leg motions with the support of a chair. The rest of the class sees the students on the dance floor, moving in unison under Steve's careful direction.

"I joined the class because I was hoping it would somehow keep the symptoms at bay," said Lincoln Garlick, diagnosed four years ago.

Mary Jane Barr-Silk, a Doylestown Hospital speech therapist, has run the hospital's Parkinson's disease support group for 18 years. The group meets monthly at the Health & Wellness Center in Warrington. It offers education, support, networking and socialization.

Exercise can be an important part of managing the condition and maintaining health.

"People with Parkinson's usually have deficits with mobility, balance and flexibility. Research has shown that exercise has physical, emotional and cognitive benefits, especially with Parkinson's disease," said Barr-Silk.

Dancing is a great form of exercise. Without a local dance class for people with Parkinson's, Barr-Silk set about to bring a class to Doylestown. The Y offered one of their dance studios, and the class enrolled about 15 students. They pay a nominal fee per class, and spouses are invited to join in for free. Steve taught a similar class in Abington in the spring. Whether it's steps from a Macedonian folk dance or the tango, he makes sure everyone is able to join in.

"Steve adapts the dance moves to the level of ability of each student," said Barr-Silk. "No matter what you can or can't do, you can always participate."

The students at a recent session agreed that dancing makes them feel a little more flexible, more confident and helps expand their range of motion. For Dan MacNeil, diagnosed three years ago, balance is a big issue. "The class has really helped," he said.

The class engages the students mentally as well as physically.

"There's a psychological element," said Welikson. "Steve's attitude is very positive. The class is a lot of fun."

At the end of the session, the students form a circle and join hands. Each turned to the person next to them and said simply, "Thank you for dancing."

Flu activity is widespread in Pennsylvania and cases are on the rise. Watch the latest episode of Health Matters with Doylestown Hospital on CBTV to learn tips from our experts on how to fight flu and colds.

Flu season is in full swing across the United States and in Pennsylvania. Health officials say activity is widespread in the state, meaning cases of influenza, or the flu, have been confirmed in at least half the regions of the state.

Infection Preventionist specialist Krista Doline reminds viewers that the flu vaccine is the best protection against getting the flu. That's true even now, when officials say this season's flu strains have mutated or changed. The flu vaccine still offers protection and can lessen symptoms if the flu is contracted.

Krista also debunks some flu vaccine myths, confirming that you cannot get the flu from the vaccine.

Jared Herzog, Doylestown Hospital's Community Wellness Coordinator, provides a primer on hand washing and the importance of clean hands at home, school and work. Jared presents special programs for local elementary school students about hand hygiene. He reminds them to pay attention to the "T-Zone" and not to touch their eyes, nose and mouth with dirty hands.

Finally, learn the top five ways to prevent flu and colds for you and your family.

If your child becomes sick, watch the first episode of Health Matters for tips from Doylestown Hospital physicians (a pediatrician and emergency medicine specialist) and the school district's nursing coordinator about caring for your little one, and when to keep a child home from school.

Watch Video: "Health Matters" Takes on Fighting the Flu

In Bucks County, 369 cases of flu were reported by the Department of Health as of Dec. 27.

Grateful for Gifts Large and Small

As we begin a new year, we pause to consider all the gifts that help Doylestown Hospital fulfill its mission. Looking back at this past year, it’s clear that gifts of all sizes really do add up.

As an independent, nonprofit hospital, Doylestown Hospital is fortunate to have many generous donors who support our mission and services throughout the year.

These donors give for many different reasons. They are both young and old, and their gifts range from small to large. Here is a look at some of those donations whose size may not be of a grand scale, but whose impact is nonetheless far reaching.

Every Gift Counts

More than 2,200 donors gave to Doylestown Hospital during the last fiscal year. Donors gave generously to some of the hospital’s larger campaigns, including the new pediatric unit, the state-of-the-art 3T MRI and acquisition of the technologically advanced EBUS (endobronchial ultrasound). These gifts enable Doylestown Hospital to offer patients the latest proven technology, innovative procedures and leading-edge treatments not always found in a community hospital.

Ever hear the saying "every dollar counts"? It’s true. One-third of all the monetary gifts received last year were less than $100 each. All of these donations added up to a total of $37,563.

Every Cup Counts

Back in July, two local 12-year-olds collected money from their lemonade stand to donate to The Cancer Institute. They gathered the dollar bills and coins in a red Solo cup and presented their gift to Betsy Alexander, director of Cancer Services at Doylestown Hospital. The funds were not earmarked for any specific purpose, but could go toward anything from helping a patient receiving chemotherapy with the cost of a wig, to helping with a patient’s transportations costs.

"I think what comes to mind is that even the small donations create goodwill and spread the word through the community," said Betsy. "Specifically, the lemonade stand may not have netted a huge amount of money; however, it raised awareness in the community about The Cancer Institute. Our patients’ needs vary, some need a lot of help and some only need a little. They are all grateful."

All in the Family

The Carol and Louis Della Penna Pediatric Center was made possible by a generous gift from the Della Penna family, and will remain a vital part of the hospital with support from the community. Doylestown Hospital CEO Jim Brexler and his wife, Kelly, shared their excitement for the September 2014 opening of the center with their young children. Their sons, ages 5 and 8, got the message -- and took it a step further. Without prompting from their parents, the boys sold lemonade and hot chocolate in their neighborhood to benefit the center.

These home-grown hospital ambassadors raised more than a few dollars for the pediatric center. They raised awareness and proved you’re never too young to care about and support a good cause.

Coming Together

Several community organizations and partners held fundraisers throughout the year to benefit the hospital, reaching substantial totals through the participation and generosity of many individuals.

The CB East and West Girls Soccer teams held a "Kick for Pink" fundraiser in October, raising not only $3,000 for The Cancer Institute, but also awareness of breast cancer.

In November, cashiers at the Cowhey Family ShopRite dressed in scrubs for two weeks to collect donations for Doylestown Hospital, mainly in $1 or $5 increments, adding up to more than $6,000. The hospital’s health concierge is located in Health Connections at the Warminster supermarket, which has a retail pharmacy at the hospital. While the final gift was a substantial amount, it wouldn’t have been possible without all the smaller gifts that added up.

Honoring Loved Ones

Some local families turn tragedy into an opportunity to help others. Such was the case with the family of Patti Barrile, who passed away last Thanksgiving from breast cancer. Patti’s sister, Sandy Panuccio and her family, along with their friends, organized the "Patti’s Gift of Hope" evening of dinner and dancing this fall.

Thanks to the family’s determination and hard work, and the generosity of the many attendees, this event raised over $12,000 to benefit the Bridge Fund of The Cancer Institute of Doylestown Hospital. The Bridge Fund helps cancer patients who need assistance paying for certain aspects of care not covered by insurance.

The fourth annual Cycle Bucks County event held in June benefited The Heart Institute of Doylestown Hospital. The event honored the memory of Tara L. Riedley, who died suddenly of an undiagnosed heart condition in 2008. The Cycle Bucks County ride was organized by the Tara L. Riedley Foundation in Association with the New Hope-Solebury Community Association.

More than 250 riders participated in the event, raising $5,000 for The Heart Institute.

These acts of kindness, of honoring loved ones and selflessly helping others, help make the Doylestown Hospital community the special place that it is.

"We live in a community that places high value on excellent health and wellness services for all," said Doylestown Hospital CEO Jim Brexler. "Our donors are generous because they care about their families, friends and neighbors. Every gift we receive has meaning and tremendous value. We truly appreciate every gesture of support."

As you can see, Doylestown Hospital relies on the donations from its caring community to support all of the hospital's programs and initiatives. If you were one of our donors this year, thank you. You have made a great impact on our organization and those we serve.

Giving Opportunities

Each gift to Doylestown Hospital helps us fulfill the hospital's mission "to provide a responsive, healing environment for our patients and their families." For more information or to pledge your support, please contact our Development Office at 215-345-2124 or make a donation online.

Double The Triplets, Triple The Fun

Two sets of triplets were born at Doylestown Hospital just four days apart. Before an ending to 2014 these families will never forget, the moms got to know each other online then in person.

These two local families have a lot in common.

When each set of parents found out in June they were expecting triplets, they both described their reactions as "shocked." Each was delighted to be welcoming two boys and a girl. The triplets would be joining an older brother in one family, and an older sister in the other.

Both moms had also turned to social media for camaraderie and support as they prepared for their triple bundles of joy.

Over the summer, Terri Thompson and Tanya Berman joined a private Facebook group for moms and expectant moms of triplets. Women from across the country and world shared their experiences and resources (multiple strollers, clothes, etc.) with one another; and ultimately formed online relationships.

It took a little time, but Terri and Tanya finally realized they were both patients of Scott Dinesen, DO, who was now providing their prenatal care.

Over the years, Dr. Dinesen had delivered six sets of triplets at Doylestown Hospital. He'd never had two sets quite so close together.

Terri and Tanya messaged each other online to confirm their gut feeling that they were both in the Bucks County area. Once they figured out they were both expecting triplets in February 2015, the women continued to message each other, and finally met at Dr. Dinesen's office about two months ago.

"I found a lot of comfort in the triplet group on Facebook," said Terri, who teaches third grade in the Central Bucks School District.

"It was nice. Terri and I wrote to each other and supported each other," said Tanya.

Tanya Berman and baby Ridley
Over the last several months, Dr. Dinesen got to know both mothers well, seeing each two or three times a week due to the high-risk nature of their pregnancies. He delivered Tanya's first baby and Melanie Ware, DO, his partner, delivered Terri's first child.

Terri and her husband Scott planned to take it easy this Christmas, but soon started having contractions. Dr. Dinesen delivered the babies by C-section on December 27 in the VIA Maternity Center of Doylestown Hospital. Aidan and Allison weighed in at just over 3 pounds while Cole tipped the scales at just over 4 pounds.

The babies are doing well in the Intensive Care Nursery and they'll eventually join brother Jake, 3, at home.

The day before New Year's Eve, Tanya was at Doylestown Hospital for a prenatal test. She stopped in the Maternity Center to visit Terri, and told the nurses she'd see them in a few weeks for the delivery of her triplets.

Terri and Scott Thompson
But the babies had other plans. Tanya's water broke the morning of New Year's Eve, and Dr. Dinesen and the team sprang into action once again. Asher Saul and Ezra Noam weighed about 3.5 pounds and little sister Ridley Ayala weighed under 3 pounds. Tanya and her husband Jeffrey have already given the newborn girl the nickname of Riddle. The triplets join 2½-year-old sister, Dara, who said goodnight to the three babies in mommy's tummy each night during the pregnancy.

The triplets are doing well in the ICN, and Dara knows she has three new siblings to look forward to.

"It's exciting and scary at the same time," said Tanya. She and Jeffrey kept the names and sexes of the triplets under wraps in order to surprise their families once the babies were born.

Scott Thompson is also looking forward to times ahead. "It will be exciting for sure," said Scott, who has an identical twin brother.

Terri said her delivery experience was a positive one. "It could have been very stressful, but the staff made me so calm. Everything was so professional and well organized, but there was also laughter and smiling. I was praying the whole time with prayers of gratitude."

Terri added, "Dr. Dinesen, the Labor and Delivery staff, and the ICN staff have been amazing. They are so skilled and knowledgeable, while showing such care and warmth! Our babies are in excellent hands!"

Kathy Donahue, director of Maternal Child Services, said as far as she knows, this is the first time for simultaneous triplets at Doylestown Hospital. "It's exciting. We were prepared for both, so everything went very smoothly."

"It's just awesome that this could happen at a community hospital like Doylestown Hospital," said Dr. Dinesen. "It's great because both mothers have been patients of mine for a long time. Now that I've delivered their triplets, I'm part of their families forever. It's what we do, we help build families."

About Maternity Care at Doylestown Hospital

The VIA Maternity Center of Doylestown Hospital is rated among the best in the region for maternity care with services available for every stage of pregnancy through the birth experience. The VIA Maternity Center features a 32-bed maternity unit that includes 9 labor, delivery & recovery rooms, 22 private post-partum rooms, and a Level II Intensive Care Nursery staffed by CHOP neonatologists.

Early Detection for Prostate Cancer

Steve Morrison, radio personality and co-host of WMMR’s Preston & Steve morning show, recently announced he underwent surgery for prostate cancer at the end of 2014. He is expected to make a full recovery, but this serves as a reminder to men of the importance of early detection.

According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men (after skin cancer), but it can often be treated successfully. More than 2 million men in the US count themselves as prostate cancer survivors.

Urologists and the cancer care team at Doylestown Hospital provide a personalized approach to care for anyone seeking consultation, screening, diagnosis or treatment of prostate cancer. If detected early, prostate cancer is often treatable and curable.

"As with any cancer, successful treatment depends on early detection. Because emerging prostate cancer is often asymptomatic, men are encouraged to have an annual digital rectal exam along with a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test after age 50 years. For men with a strong family history of prostate cancer, or African-American men who are at an increased risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer, screening for the disease should begin closer to age 45 years," says Albert Ruenes, MD, urologist at Doylestown Hospital.

"A diagnosis of prostate cancer is often not life threatening, but in certain cases it can indeed be very serious. The aggressiveness of treatment is generally mandated by the aggressiveness of the cancer itself, and this is a characteristic of the disease that is available only through prostate biopsy," says Dr. Ruenes.

In Steve Morrison's case, he presented no symptoms. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test, a simple blood test, was the only red flag. Urologists and cancer specialists at Doylestown Hospital strongly urge men to discuss prostate cancer screening relative to their personal risks and circumstances with their primary care physician.

Symptoms of Prostate Cancer

Early prostate cancer usually does not present any noticeable symptoms. As prostate cancer advances, men may notice the following symptoms, according to American Cancer Society: · Urination problems such as a slow or weak stream or the need to urinate more often, especially at night.
  • Blood in the urine
  • Erection problems (erectile dysfunction)
  • Pain in the hips, back (spine), chest (ribs), or other areas from cancer that has spread to bones
  • Weakness or numbness in the legs or feet
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control from cancer pressing on the spinal cord

Prostate Cancer Screening

Early detection screenings available include:
  • Digital rectal exam (DRE)
  • Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test
Do what you can to minimize your risk of developing prostate cancer by following the above guidelines as well as living a healthy lifestyle, which includes regular exercise and a well-balanced diet.

About The Cancer Institute of Doylestown Hospital

The Cancer Institute of Doylestown Hospital encourages men to follow the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) guidelines for prostate cancer screening. Visit The Cancer Institute of Doylestown Hospital for more information or to learn more about prostate cancer screenings available.
