GREENE COUNTY, Mo. (KY3) – Greene County is currently one of the top counties in Missouri for sexually transmitted diseases.

Greene County tops other major metropolitan areas in chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis.

For June 2022, Greene County had 146 reported cases of chlamydia, 72 of gonorrhea, and 111 of syphilis, according to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

“It’s a lot like the opioid crisis in our community because people don’t want to talk about it,” said Lynne Meyerkord, AIDS Project of the Ozarks. “During COVID 2020 in particular, people didn’t come to get tested, and our testing dropped 57%.”

“Our STD clinic was closed for several years due to the pandemic, and we are now seeing higher numbers,” said Kendra Findley of the Springfield-Greene County Health Department.

Greene County is seeing an increase in gonorrhea, chlamydia, and another terrible disease, syphilis.

“It looks like one of those diseases that is outdated or old people don’t get it anymore, but it’s still a problem,” Findley said. “We saw a 200% increase in syphilis in Greene County and a 27% jump nationally, according to the CDC.”

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department says if you’re pregnant, you should get tested to make sure you don’t pass it on to your baby. Experts say that regardless of your status, sexuality or gender, whether you are symptomatic or not, you should get tested if you are sexually active.

“We also have people who think they’re in a monogamous relationship, and they’re not,” Meyerkord said. “I am thinking of anyone who is sexually active. It doesn’t hurt to get tested several times a year.

Women Should Know These 8 Important Medical Tests and Vaccines https://heiki.org/women-should-know-these-8-important-medical-tests-and-vaccines/ Sat, 03 Sep 2022 07:27:57 +0000 https://heiki.org/women-should-know-these-8-important-medical-tests-and-vaccines/

Visiting gynecologists in India is nothing short of a trial. Depending on the doctor and if you’re lucky, the visit can be easy and non-judgmental. But sometimes the experience can be embarrassing, humiliating, or may even cause the doctor to downplay your symptoms.

Source: German Medical Center

This brings us to the subject of how there are certain medical tests and vaccines that women should know about and what their gynecologists should tell them about. But unfortunately, we live in a country where marital status determines whether someone should see a gynecologist or not. We have compiled a list of these tests and vaccines. You can ask your doctor to tell you about it.

1. Pap test

This test is a screening procedure for cervical cancer. The procedure involves taking a small sample of cells from the cervix and the area around it that can be checked under a microscope for any changes that may indicate cervical cancer. Due to the lack of resources in the country, doctors recommend that women aged 30 and over have a pap smear once every three years until the age of 65.

2. Cervical cancer vaccine

India recently obtained its first locally developed cervical cancer vaccine, which is priced significantly lower than those already available in the market. It is reported that the vaccine will cost between ₹200 and ₹400. This decision will now help to prevent cases of cervical cancer in the country. Cervical cancer is preventable and can be detected through regular screenings and follow-ups.

3. Mammography

According to the National Health Portal, breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among Indian women. Women aged 30 and over are advised to have a mammogram every year. Screening includes a breast X-ray which can detect any irregular changes in the breast tissue. One can also carry out a self-examination to detect any lumps.

4. Bone density test

Women are more prone to osteoporosis – a condition in which bones become weak and brittle – due to hormonal changes that occur during menopause. A bone density test uses x-rays to check the level of calcium and other bone minerals.

5. STD and STI tests

Regardless of gender, a person should get tested for sexually transmitted diseases and sexually transmitted infections if they are sexually active or have multiple sexual partners. Most of these tests include blood samples, urine samples, or samples taken from the cervix. These tests can be done in any hospital or pathology laboratory.

6. Blood tests to diagnose PCOS

There is no single test that can diagnose polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The doctor may recommend blood tests to measure hormone levels, ultrasounds, and pelvic physical exams. Along with this, they will ask about your medical history to rule or rule out conditions for the same. If you have missed your period or have irregular periods, you should tell your doctor.

seven. Vitamin deficiency tests

Along with your regular tests, it’s important to check your vitamin levels as well. It is reported that Indian women are susceptible to vitamin D deficiency. It is also reported that a high percentage of Indian women are anemic.

8. Thyroid tests

Women are more likely to be affected by an underactive or overactive thyroid gland. Changes in thyroid hormone levels can manifest in the body as changes in metabolism, weight, skin, etc. Although these symptoms may be perfectly normal and may be indicators of aging, it is advisable to report these changes to your doctor first. They can then guide you whether or not you need these tests.

Monkeypox isn’t just sexually transmitted, more than 30 children test positive in the US https://heiki.org/monkeypox-isnt-just-sexually-transmitted-more-than-30-children-test-positive-in-the-us/ Fri, 02 Sep 2022 08:36:00 +0000 https://heiki.org/monkeypox-isnt-just-sexually-transmitted-more-than-30-children-test-positive-in-the-us/

Monkeypox has spread to over 80 countries around the world. More than 30 children in the United States have tested positive for monkeypox in the latest development on the disease.

Cases of monkeypox in children: In the United States, more than 30 children have tested positive for monkeypox. U.S. officials briefed ABC News that 11 US states and jurisdictions have reported cases of monkeypox in children. 9 pediatric cases have been reported in Texas alone.

The CDC has also warned that children younger than 8 are more likely to develop serious illness from monkeypox.

Monkeypox is not (just) an STD: The Texas Department of Health has now said the disease can also be spread through non-sexual contact.

While initially monkeypox was linked to sexual activity in men, it is not just an STD.

Monkeypox is spread via sexual activities; but it is a half-truth.

Monkeypox can also be spread through other activities. These include close, personal, or any type of skin-to-skin contact, which can result in the transfer of infected fluids.

Hugs, kisses, prolonged face-to-face contact, and contact with fabrics and surfaces used by someone with monkeypox can also spread the disease.

How is monkeypox spread in children? According to the World Health Organization, children can also be infected with monkeypox if they have had close contact with an infected person. Children are also more prone to a severe form of the disease. Usually, children are exposed to the virus by parents, caregivers and family members.

What are the symptoms in children? Symptoms of monkeypox in children can easily be misunderstood. The symptoms are very similar to those of chickenpox and other viral infections. Therefore, if you notice symptoms of monkeypox in your children, seek medical attention. A test can help clarify the type of infection.

Skin rashes are a common symptom of monkeypox in both children and adults

Symptoms of monkeypox in children are similar to those in adults; which include headache, fever, back pain, muscle aches and lack of energy. After a week or two, the infected person develops rashes, which lead to pustules. The disease lasts 2 to 4 weeks.

In a rapidly changing world, where women are often caught between career opportunities and family obligations, self-care is often reduced to scented candles and face masks. But honestly, if you’re serious about treating your body like a temple, you need to add your annual health checkups, dental appointments, and eye exams to your to-do list.

You do not know where to start ? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Pap smears and HPV vaccines

Cervical cancer is the tenth most common female cancer in Singapore, and each year more than 200 women are diagnosed with it. The good news? This cancer is highly preventable with active screening, such as pap smears and human papillomavirus (HPV) testing, as well as HPV vaccines. Usually painless, doctors during these tests will scrape cells from the surface of the cervix for a vaginal examination. The preventive HPV vaccine is given in three doses spread over a period of six months. In Singapore, sexually active women between the ages of 21 and 69 are recommended to undergo regular screening every 3 to 5 years.

Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Tests

With often undetected symptoms, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) also top our list. Sexually active women, especially those with multiple partners, are advised to get screened annually for gonorrhea and chlamydia. Additionally, depending on your lifestyle and medical history, your doctor may also advise you to be tested for other diseases such as syphilis and HIV, as well as other infections.

High blood pressure

Although not directly sex-related, high blood pressure is often common in women, (not) thanks to bodily changes like pregnancy, contraceptive ingestion, and menopause. These can all increase the risk of developing high blood pressure. Left untreated, the disease can harbor a mountain of health problems such as heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, atherosclerosis, dementia, etc. Therefore, it’s probably a good idea to have your blood pressure checked at least once a year.

Breast exams and mammography

A breast self-exam goes a long way in detecting and preventing breast cancer before it spreads. To get an idea of ​​what to look for, doctors suggest having a clinical breast exam, so your doctor can explain how to examine you at home. Once women hit the 40-year mark, it is also strongly advised to have a full mammogram. However, if breast cancer is apparent in your genetic heredity, your doctor may recommend that you start your breast screenings earlier.

Colorectal cancer screening

As the most common cancer in men and the second most common cancer in women in Singapore, colorectal cancer is definitely not something to be taken lightly. This cancer affects the colon (the main part of the large intestine) and the rectum. Health tests for colorectal cancer include the fecal immunochemical test (FIT) and colonoscopy, which can help identify and rule out precancerous polyps or early cancers. This screening is generally recommended for people aged 50 and over, and to be carried out annually on them.

Bone mineral density (BMD) tests

With an aging population, osteoporosis is not only becoming a problem in Singapore, but also in the rest of Asia. The condition is known to cause thinning and weakening of bones which can often lead to hip, spine and wrist fractures. This is addressed with a bone mineral density analysis, which uses an X-ray to measure bone mass, calcium, and minerals in a segment of bone. This test is recommended for women over 50, in menopause or whose ovaries have been removed, and if you are breastfeeding.

Self-checks

It is understandable that it is not always possible to go to health screenings and medical consultations. The best solution is therefore to take care of yourself, to have an active life and to pay attention to your bodily needs. This includes having your skin examined, looking for vaginal discharge, and going to a dermatologist or doctor when you see anything out of the ordinary.

ASUS took their best ROG gaming laptop, reduced the footprint, added a tilting keyboard with WRGB, a wheel for quick shortcuts and precise actions, and paired it with one of their best gaming technologies. display and the Asus Zenbook 16X (UX7602) was born. We had the opportunity to test the UX7602, and here is our report.

Design

While we love ROG laptops for their unapologetic gaming aesthetics, and we also use a few of them for our workflow, gaming laptops are gaming laptops at the end. Although they offer enough power for heavy workloads, like streaming and rendering 4K/8K files, there are tradeoffs, like display, fan noise, overall size, and weight. With the Zenbook Pro 16 OLED (UX7602), ASUS has taken all the best things from its ROG lineup and added more things relevant to creators delivering an unparalleled experience.

First, the design, it’s sleek and slim and immediately gives off a useful vibe. This laptop means business and you can feel it from the design. The entire chassis of the UX7602 is made of CNC machined aluminum alloy, which gives the device a premium feel alongside the durability factor. But that’s only from the outside, once you open the lid of the UX7602 you’re greeted by a keyboard that tilts upwards, ASUS calls the mechanism AAS Ultra which stands for Active Aerodynamic System Ultra. This raises the keyboard and opens the back 7 degrees, creating a 14.5mm air intake, improving airflow and thermal performance. Interestingly, that tilting keyboard isn’t fancy, from a design standpoint the UX7602 has two front speakers that are directly over the keyboard and the speakers tilt while enhancing the experience overall sound.

The tilting keyboard creates a vent underneath and the hinge is solid.
To learn more about this tilting keyboard design, we spoke to Hardik Singh, Technical Product Manager for ASUS India, about the durability of the keyboard and the dust issues that will eventually creep in. Hardik assured us that the keyboard is sturdy enough to even lift the laptop and the internals are sealed against dust. The UX7602 with its aluminum chassis and 16-inch screen weighs 2.4 kg and is 16.9 mm thick and the machine is US MIL-STD 810H certified for durability.

Moving on, the UX7602 gets a large 150 x 90mm trackpad thanks to the larger footprint of the device, the glass trackpad can also display the number pad if needed, but the UX7602 has another trick of party, and it’s the wheel to the left of the trackpad.

This wheel called the ASUS wheel is quite unique and is seen on professional video editing controllers. Fully customizable, this wheel can speed up your creative workflow. ASUS has collaborated with Adobe for the use of this watch face in Adobe’s Creative Suite. We’ve tried using the dial with Photoshop and Premiere and it’s made our lives a lot easier with the shortcuts and precise movements it offers. If you don’t carry a mouse, the UX7602 with the jog wheel can still make it easier and faster to move through layers, edits, color correction, or anything else in the Adobe suite. We found the jog wheel placement to be very intuitive, the left hand reaches for the wheel naturally and the overall workflow becomes much quicker.

And finally, like tattoos poking out of a professional’s collar or cuff, giving a glimpse of the alternative lifestyle outside of the office, the UX7602 traces its ROG heritage with per-key W-RGB lighting as well. a light bar on each side of the keyboard that lights up when the keyboard is lifted. If you don’t want the RGB lights, it has independent white LEDs that make it suitable for the studio or work environment. Oh! the back logo also shines in WRGB and is fully customizable as well. And these lights can also be turned off, for an all-black look.

Display

Besides powerful and reliable hardware, when it comes to creative work, it’s the display quality that matters most. Colors need to be absolutely accurate for professional work, and ASUS has done a great job with the UX7602’s display. First, it’s an OLED panel, which means it’s bright and has great contrast and color ratio, then the 16-inch 4K panel is also touch-sensitive and ASUS provides a pen in the box.

The display panel supports 100% DCI-P3 color space, its Pantone validation as well as VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 and Dolby Vision certification. The panel also offers 550 nits of brightness and 0.2ms of response time. The display is amazing, the thin bezels and the 16:10 aspect make working on the device a pleasant experience. For professionals working in editing, filmmaking, photographers and more, the UX7602’s display delivers accurate colors and ample brightness that keep onscreen content visible even in direct sunlight. We tried editing videos and photos incorporating the UX7602 into our workflow and the display immediately stood out compared to our other devices. Images shot on a Canon DSLR were represented exactly as seen by the camera.

The ASUS Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602) comes with Intel’s 12th Gen H-series processors, these gaming-grade processors offer up to 14 cores and 5GHz clock speed with the 12900H. In terms of GPUs, NVIDIA’s RTX 3060 with 6GB of LPDDR6 VRAM is available. Storage and RAM options include 1TB PCIe Gen4 X4 performance SSD with speeds of 6.5GB/s and 32GB LPDDR5 (5200MHz) RAM. As mentioned above, we tried using the UX7602 in our workflow and the device blew it all away, the ergonomics with the wheel is one thing, but the performance was great too. Editing 4K video, with a full resolution preview in Adobe Premiere, was a stutter-free experience, which is great. Even games were good with performance comparable to 3060 gaming laptops, display quality was much better than gaming laptops.

Thermals

Although the UX7602 has a sizable footprint with the 16-inch display panel, it’s thin and with powerful internals, we were interested in observing how it will handle the heat. Especially with the tilting keyboard creating an air vent just above the CPU. Now, ASUS has informed us about IceCool Pro thermal technology which is 3D vapor chamber, efficient 12v fans with 97 blades, etc. In real life, the biggest difference you’ll notice is on the keyboard, it barely heats up. The device also has vents on the back, bottom, and sides for airflow, which keeps the device well-ventilated. Another noticeable thing was that the fans were less audible on UX7602 than compared to its gaming counterparts.

I/O Ports

The UX7602 comes with two Thunderbolt 4 ports that support data, display, and charging, an HDMI 2.1 port, a USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A port, and a 3.5mm audio port. Since this device is aimed at creators, there is also an SD express 7.0 card reader for super-fast data transfer from a DSLR or any other type of camera or other devices. For wireless networking, Wi-Fi 6e and Bluetooth 5.2 are offered.

Other Features

The UX7602’s 6-speaker system is by far the best laptop speaker we’ve ever tested, laptop sound output is loud and clear with good stereo separation. This device’s target audience will likely be using it with headphones, but ASUS didn’t skimp on the audio output here. Unlike a full gaming laptop, the UX7602 also has a proper webcam, it’s a 1080p unit offering good image quality. The IR webcam also supports Windows Hello, and then there’s the fingerprint scanner built into the power button which worked very reliably.

Battery

The UX7602 comes with a 96Wh capacity battery and this large battery can keep the device running for quite some time under normal load. We tried editing a 30 minute 1080p video straight from footage transfer to final rendering and compression while using UX7602 on battery power and UX7602 could easily handle it with juicy 40% still at the end.

Verdict

The ASUS Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602) isn’t for everyone, it’s not just another high-powered laptop, it’s more like a tool, designed for professionals who value time, performance and portability. It’s a well-rounded machine that would fit right into a creative professional’s arsenal. Priced at INR 2,49,990, the UX7602 is now available for purchase directly from ASUS India.

Increased importance of STI screening before returning to university https://heiki.org/increased-importance-of-sti-screening-before-returning-to-university/ Fri, 19 Aug 2022 15:33:00 +0000 https://heiki.org/increased-importance-of-sti-screening-before-returning-to-university/

SIOUX FALLS, SD (Dakota News Now) – A drastic increase in the number of sexually transmitted infections is prompting health officials to sound the alarm, encouraging students to take extra precautions.

“Sexually transmitted infections are more common than many realize. 1 in 5 people have an STI and more than half of our new cases are in people under the age of 25,” said Emily Boysen, a certified nurse practitioner at Sanford.

Boysen wants to emphasize the importance of testing.

“Sexually active people should be routinely screened for STIs, we recommend that you come in for an STI test before you are sexually active and that all partners involved come in for a test,” Boysen said.

Boysen thinks the increased spread within this age group could be because some people carry an STI and don’t even know it.

“The symptoms of STIs are different for everyone, but the majority of individuals are asymptomatic or have no symptoms at all and that could be a reason why they are spreading so quickly in our population,” Boysen said.

Even if you are asymptomatic, it is still important to know if you have been infected.

“If STIs are left untreated, they can lead to more serious health problems, such as increasing your risk of contracting HIV or leading to pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility or neonatal complications during pregnancy,” says Boysen.
