How to convince the same medical school second time around?
Hi All! My name is Mike and I always wanted to get into med school. My background is Electrical and Biomedical Engineering and I am currently working as an electrical engineer. A year and a half ago I have applied for both med school and law school. Unluckily, med school did not accept me but I got accepted to part-time law school instead. I am on my second year of law school now but I am also trying to get into med school as it was always my biggest interest. If med school continues to not accept me I may end up working as a patent lawyer for medical devices. I am very good in my university biomedical courses and have b...

What do you Call this type of test?
<p>My dr. believes my O2 is dropping at night-so he is ordering a pulse ox study. But, the office wants me to 'research' where to go. I've called local hospitals and durable medical equipment suppliers and nobody has a clue as to what this is. Someone please advise as to where I can get this done and what it is called?</p> <p>Frustrated. <img title="Yell" src="include/wysiwyg/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif" alt="Yell" border="0" /></p> (Source: Cystic Fibrosis Adults Forum)

Pari neb compressor
<p>Hello again everyone!</p> <p>Quick question. I have had a Pari Trek S for about 3 1/2 years. It actually quit nebulizing properly a year or so ago and I have been using a Pulmo-Aide I bought out of pocket since. After reading on here that Pari's have a 5 year manufacturer warranty I called the medical equipment company I got it from to have it replaced. When i went to pick up the replacement, the place closed at 5 and I got there at about 4:55. So, like an idiot, I didn't even really look into the bag to see what they were giving me. ...

Travel to Japan with Hill Rom 105 Vest
<p>We have traveled within the United States with my daughter's Hill Rom 105 vest and we want to travel to Japan for Spring break. I read many of the travel postings and I am confident that the vest will fit on the plane. Has anyone taken the Hill Rom 105 vest on a bullet train in Japan. I read that you have to ship larger bags and can only take carry on luggage on the train. We will have 4 people and four small roller bags, plus the Hill Rom bag and a backpack. </p> <p>Does the Hill Rom bag fit as a carry on? Ar...

Deadly Implant/FDA Inaction
I was nearly killed by the Vagus Nerve Stimulator. The device was stopping my heart (asystole) during the 30 second stimulation cycles. My story was told in Reader's Digest and mentioned in the British Medical Journal. Reader's Digest "Medical devices that can kill" http://www.newamerica.net/node/35911 BMJ "Why the FDA can't protect the public" http://www.bmj.com/content/341/bmj.c4753.full I have since had the device removed but the electrodes will remain wrapped around my vagus nerve for life. Recently my Epitologist discovered (by accident) that the scar tissue from the electrodes had ...

Is the cost of feeding equipment tax deductible?
I just found out that The Internal Revenue Service says the cost of breast pumps will now be considered tax deductible medical expenses. Previously, the IRS considered breast pumps to be feeding equipment, not medical devices. My dd is not using a feeding tube yet but I know a lot of our kids need it. Is the cost of the feeding tube considered tax deductible? (Source: Cystic Fibrosis Families Forum)

just to let u guys know most insurance companies pay for a breast pump under durable medical equipment sometimes u need a doctors note or pre approval but just to let you know you dont have to pay out of pocket. my ins doesnt pay for "over the counter items" ie breast pumps but many companies do, some do rentals and some do purchase (hey if there willing to buy u a $500 pump i would let them... put that money toward other baby things) (Source: Cystic Fibrosis Pregnancy Forum)

Originally posted by: Proxy how much does the whole Vest system typically cost? In the states without insurance it runs about $12,000-16,000. I think the receipt for DS' Hill-Rom was $12K and change. Originally I thought we'd have to come up with 20% as per our insurance for Durable Medical Equipment; however, I think it ended up being about $500 total out of pocket. We were initially denied and had to appeal. A friend of mine had a rent to own agreement for the difference, another had an arrangment in which a portion was charged to insurance over a two year period. They also have financing available.

Tell me about traveling with your vest
Just echoing everyone else - you won't need a note from your doctor (well for US travel anyway). A few weeks before my flight, I just call the airline and have them add a note to my reservation that says I'm traveling with X bags of medical equipment. I haven't had any trouble. I used to have someone put it up in the overhead bin for me (usually my hubby or my dad but once it was a very nice stranger). But lately I've been asking the flight attendants to store it up front for me and they have been very accommodating. Totally unrelated side note about that nice stranger. When I was boarding the plane, there was a lady in ...

Different Parts to Dental Equipment
Dental equipment comes in different forms and sizes and although some may be pretty small and others totally big in size, their function to the dental office is just one and that is to give the patient the services he or she needs without adding any discomfort to them. The need for continuous development for dental equipment is still on the works, but there are a lot of technologically advanced medical equipment these days that are now being used by most. As seen the dental office is not merely a place where patients sit on the dental chair while a dentist look at the infected tooth and treat it, but to make a dental of...
