The Key to Effective Infection Management: Early antibiotic intervention and at the right dose.

While aggressive antibiotic treatment with high dosages has been the go-to methodology of treatment historically, research by the National Institute of Health is challenging that assumption. This article published by the NIH states that the timing of antibiotics being administered, relative to the dosages, also plays a critical role in the duration of an infection.

Antibiotics are a cornerstone of modern medicine, a powerful tool in our fight against bacterial infections. But when it comes to their effectiveness, timing is everything – almost. Administering appropriate dose of antibiotics promptly can significantly improve a patient’s outcome, while delays can have serious consequences.

 

The Power of Precise Timing and Dosing:

Boosting Survival Rates: Studies consistently show a strong link between delays in antibiotic treatment and higher mortality rates, particularly in life-threatening infections like sepsis. Each hour of delay can significantly decrease a patient’s chances of survival. Early antibiotics give the body a fighting chance to overcome the infection before it becomes overwhelming.

Targeting the Enemy Effectively: Antibiotics work best when bacteria are actively multiplying. Early administration at the correct dosage targets them during this vulnerable stage, stopping their spread and allowing the immune system to clear them more effectively. An incorrect dose, whether too low or too high, can allow the bacteria to survive and potentially develop resistance to the antibiotics, making treatment more challenging.

Protecting Vital Organs: Severe infections can cause significant damage to organs like the lungs, kidneys, and heart. Prompt antibiotic treatment at the recommended dose helps control the infection and minimize this damage, leading to a better overall outcome for the patient. Early intervention and proper dosing can prevent complications and the need for additional, potentially more intensive treatments.

 

The Dangers of Delay and Incorrect Dosage:

A Race Against Time and Strength: Delays in antibiotic treatment or taking incorrect dosages can significantly worsen a patient’s prognosis. The longer the bacteria have to multiply and potentially develop resistance, the harder it is to eradicate the infection.

Breeding Resistance: Incorrect doses, particularly under-dosing, create an environment where some bacteria can survive and potentially develop resistance to the antibiotic. This can have serious consequences for future treatment of that particular infection, not just for the individual patient but also for the wider community.

Increased Healthcare Costs: Complications arising from delayed or incorrect antibiotic use can lead to additional procedures, hospital stays, and other interventions, significantly increasing healthcare costs.

A Longer Road to Recovery: Delayed treatment or incorrect antibiotic dosages extend the infection’s course, leading to a longer recovery time with ongoing discomfort and disability for the patient.

 

Continue to Take the Full Regimen of Antibiotics:

It’s essential to complete the full course of antibiotics, even if symptoms begin to improve. This ensures all bacteria are eliminated, preventing relapse and the development of antibiotic resistance. Whenever taking medications, adhere strictly to your physician’s instructions.

Antibiotic resistance can occur when the infection is only partially treated. It is crucial to continue taking the entire regimen of antibiotics according to the instructions, even if you begin to feel better. If the infection has been allowed to become antibiotic-resistant from not taking the full schedule of antibiotics, the worsened illness can lead to serious complications.

 

 

Ensuring Access to Antibiotics

Administering antibiotics quickly is a prudent theory, but sometimes not a practical reality. CBS News recently reported on the widening gaps of mortality rates between city and rural residents due to difficult access to healthcare in rural communities. A local PBS Station in Washington said that rural patients often have to travel several hours from home to seek medical attention, which can lead to far worse patient outcomes. The difficulty in accessing treatment while on a trip can be so burdensome that the CDC has entire page devoted to getting healthcare while traveling.

Considering the timely need to administer antibiotics and the sometimes prolonged access to healthcare, the only way to ensure that you don’t fall in the gap is by having your own emergency antibiotics on hand at home. This is why we made the Jase Case – to give you access to treatment when healthcare is inaccessible.

Antibiotics are the preferred treatment for bacterial infections, but do not help treat viral infections like the Avian Influenza (Bird Flu) – which has seen a recent resurgence and is now infecting humans (CDC). Anti-viral drugs such as Oseltamivir (TamiFlu) are necessary for Influenza strains including Bird Flu. Oseltamivir 75mg (10 pack) is just one of the many available add-on medications we offer to add to your Jase Case to increase its usable scenarios.

Tips for Getting Our Kids to Live Their Healthiest Lives

Kids are superb little copycats; let’s give them some positive things to mimic.

.

Healthy kids, Happy Families: Empowering Children for Lifelong Wellness 

Before they start making their own decisions, kids will begin copying ours. So the more health conscious examples we set, the happier and healthier we’ll both be. But, in a world of sugary treats and screen time, getting them on board with healthy habits can at times feel like a battle.

It’s also important to educate them about health. Teach your child about the importance of good nutrition, physical activity, hygiene, and other aspects of health. Help them understand how their choices will impact their well-being.

Here are some tips to help your little ones embrace a super healthy lifestyle, all while having fun!

 

Fueling Your Little Superheros:

 

  • Lead by example. If they see you making healthy choices, they’re more likely to follow suit. Stock your pantry with fruits, veggies, and whole and natural foods – cut out the sugary snacks.
  • Make mealtime a family adventure. Get your kids involved in grocery shopping and meal prepping. Let them pick out colorful fruits and veggies, and encourage them to help with age-appropriate tasks like washing produce or stirring ingredients.
  • Spice it up! Don’t be afraid to experiment with new recipes. Involve your kids in the process and let them choose healthy ingredients they’re curious about.
  • Presentation is key! Make healthy food fun and visually appealing. Cut sandwiches into fun shapes, arrange fruit kebabs, or create “power plate” dinners with different colored sections.
  • Limit (or eliminate) sugary drinks. Instead encourage hydration. Water should be the go-to beverage. Invest in a fun reusable water bottle and make staying hydrated a game.

Unleashing the Inner Athlete:

 

  • Find the fun! Focus on activities your child enjoys, whether it’s dancing, playing tag, swimming, or riding a bike. Explore local parks, playgrounds, or join a recreational sports team.
  • Make it a family affair! Go for walks, hikes, or bike rides together. Active family time creates lasting memories and sets a great example.
  • Limit screen time. Set clear guidelines for screen time and encourage active alternatives.
  • Get creative! Turn household chores into mini-workouts. Time yourselves doing chores like cleaning their room or raking leaves. The winner gets bragging rights (or an extra bedtime story!).

Resting Up for Adventure:

 

  • Establish a bedtime routine. This could include a warm bath, reading a book, or quiet cuddle time. Keep electronics off for at least an hour before bed to promote quality sleep.
  • Create a sleep-conducive environment. Make sure their room is dark, quiet, and cool.
  • Set the example in your house. Put them to bed, and go to bed early too. Practice good sleep hygiene yourself, by avoiding screens before bed and establishing a consistent sleep schedule for the whole family.

Remember:

 

  • Be patient and positive. Building healthy habits takes time and encouragement. Celebrate small victories and focus on progress, not perfection.
  • Make it a team effort. Work with your partner, caregivers, and even your child’s school to reinforce healthy habits.
  • Encourage Positive Body Image. Help your child develop a healthy body image by emphasizing the importance of being healthy and strong, rather than focusing on appearance.
  • Celebrate Progress. Praise your Childs efforts toward healthier choices. Celebrate small victories and encourage them to keep going.
  • Focus on the fun! Keep things positive and lighthearted.

 

Healthy Routines = Healthy Results

When healthy living feels like an adventure, your child is more likely to stick with it.

By implementing these tips, you can help your child develop a love for healthy living that sets them on the path to a happy and healthy life!

Just as our children will mimic our daily behaviors – both good and bad – they will want to partake in healthy activities if they see us living our best lives too. Just as we care for them, we should care for ourselves.

Sometimes life will go ways we haven’t intended, and the volatility of children’s lives and their penchant for the unpredictable will mean they increase these chances. Having emergency medications on hand for ourselves and for our kids is a key point in any plan for whole family.

Disasters and Disease: An Increased Risk of Pneumonia

Natural events are unpredictable, preparedness is not.

.

You can’t know what may happen next, but you can know your family is prepared.

With disasters and disease on the rise globally, there is no time like today, to prepare for tomorrow. From recent supply chain disruptions and prescription drug shortages, to natural disasters and human caused catastrophes, this has been a record year already. Are you prepared for what may happen next?

 

Just in the past few months:

 

  • A cargo ship took out a bridge in Baltimore, causing a ripple effect of supply chain disruptions.
  • Cases of measles – once thought to be eradicated – are steadily rising at a rate greater than last year.
  • The bird flu is back and is now infecting humans.
  • The FDA has been forced to backpedal on claims it made about Ivermectin in recent years.
  • Just yesterday the CDC issued a warning about an alarming growth in cases of a rare bacterial infection that is also now more deadly than previously thought.
  • A tragic earthquake in Taiwan that took the lives of 10 people, trapped hundreds more, also damaged 7 area hospitals.
  • And according DOD and NIH reports, upwards of 90% of our prescription drugs or their active ingredients come from foreign suppliers.

The cause for concern:

Both natural and man-made disasters can cause changes in your immediate environment and/or your daily routine significant enough to make you susceptible to an infection that could cause any number of illnesses, including a likelihood of contagious pneumonia.

Cases of Pneumonia can be caused by either a bacterial, viral or fungal infection. They can be easily spread though close proximity to an infected individual, who may be coughing or sneezing, or through contact with a contaminated surface such as a door handle or countertop.  However to mitigate this, antibiotics are usually prescribed when bacterial pneumonia is suspected. Fortunately, once an infected person begins an antibiotic regimen their contagiousness decreases. So the sooner you get on antibiotics for pneumonia, the better.

 

Here are just some of the ways disasters can cause an increase in susceptibility to Pneumonia:

 

  • Increased Exposure to Germs: Disasters can damage sewage systems and contaminate water supplies with floodwater or debris. This contaminated water can harbor bacteria, viruses, and even fungi that cause pneumonia. People may unknowingly ingest these germs while drinking contaminated water or inhaling aerosolized droplets during clean-up activities.
  • Weakened Immune Systems: Disasters can lead to crowded living conditions in shelters, which can increase the spread of respiratory illnesses like the flu or common cold. These viral infections can irritate and weaken the lungs, making them more susceptible to secondary bacterial infections that turn into pneumonia.
  • Poor Air Quality: Dust from collapsed buildings, smoke from fires, and mold growth in damp environments after floods can all contribute to air pollution. Inhaling these irritants damages the lining of the lungs, making them more vulnerable to infection.
  • Difficulties with Hygiene and Sanitation:  Disruptions to basic services after a disaster can make it difficult to maintain proper hygiene practices like handwashing. This can increase the spread of germs that cause pneumonia.
  • Underlying Health Conditions:  The stress and physical strain of a disaster can worsen existing chronic health conditions like asthma or heart disease. People with these conditions are already more susceptible to pneumonia, and disasters can exacerbate these vulnerabilities.

 

Conclusion and Solution:

Azithromycin (Z-Pack) is the most commonly prescribed and effective medication for most cases of Pneumonia. Just last year there was a shortage of Azithromycin due to increased global demand, inadequate production and geopolitical tensions which resulted in price increases. It is also used in the treatment of bronchitis, and other infections of the ears, lungs skin and throat. This is why Z-Pack is one of our core included medications in our Jase Case.

Through either a surge in demand or physical damage to facilities, both local events outside of our control, and natural disasters can affect critical infrastructure and cause interruptions in our access to healthcare facilities and pharmacies. The only way to have the peace of mind of knowing you are protected from medical emergencies is by having your own stock of emergency prescriptions.

National Doctor’s Day: A Celebration Of Care

On this day we recognize the contributions of doctors to our health, our lives, and our communities. 

.

 

National Doctor’s Day: A Day We Acknowledge The Vital Roles Doctors Play In Our Lives

National Doctor’s Day is a day dedicated to recognizing the contributions of physicians to individual lives and communities. It’s a day to express gratitude for their dedication, expertise, and compassion in caring for the sick and promoting good health.

It was first celebrated in Georgia in 1933 by the wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, a family medical doctor. Mrs. Almond wanted to show appreciation for the work doctors do, and sought to have a day dedicated to honoring them. The chosen date of March 30th commemorates the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery by Dr. Crawford Long in 1842.

National Doctor’s Day is an important opportunity to acknowledge the vital role doctors play in our lives. They undertake years of training and sacrifice to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to diagnose and treat illnesses, alleviate suffering, and improve the quality of life for their patients.

It’s a day to remember the countless hours they spend caring for the sick – often at the expense of their own personal time and well-being. And a day to celebrate their triumphs and recognize the challenges they face in a constantly evolving healthcare landscape.

 

Celebrations

  • Hospitals, clinics, and medical organizations often hold events or offer special gifts and tokens of appreciation to doctors on this day.
  • Patients and families can express their gratitude through handwritten notes, cards, gifts, or even taking the time to share positive experiences about their doctors online.

 

 

About Our Founder: Dr. Shawn Rowland

Back in 2018, Dr. Rowland, working as a family physician, encountered the harsh realities of medication shortages firsthand, and saw how they affected patient care.

This experience ignited a fire in him, driving him to find a sustainable solution.

Measles Cases On The Rise In The U.S.

Why a conquered disease is back, and what we can do. 

.

 

The Measles Resurgence: A Call For Health Preparedness

Measles, a highly contagious and potentially deadly disease – once relegated to history books – is making a disturbing comeback in the United States. According to a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): the number of measles cases in the U.S. has already surpassed the total for all of 2023.

This surge highlights the need for prioritizing preventive measures to safeguard our health, especially in the face of unexpected outbreaks. About 20% of cases result in the need for hospitalization, and 1 out of 20 children with measles also gets Pneumonia – highlighting the critical need to have antibiotics for Pneumonia on hand should your child become affected.

 

The Contagious Nature of Measles

The highly contagious nature of measles further complicates the situation.The virus can linger in the air for hours after an infected person coughs or sneezes, making transmission incredibly easy. This means people can contract measles by breathing in the virus or by touching a contaminated surface, and then touching their face.

Measles is one of the most contagious viruses known to humans. Approximately 90% of people who are not immune and are in close contact with an infected person will contract the virus. This high level of transmission is a main reason why measles can spread so quickly in communities.

Understanding just how contagious measles is makes it important for individuals to take steps to protect themselves and others. Practicing good hygiene, such as washing your hands frequently and thoroughly, and covering coughs and sneezes can help mitigate the spread of measles and other diseases.

 

Real-World Consequences: The Chicago Outbreak

The recent measles outbreak in Chicago, exemplifies the real-world consequences of this phenomenon. Public health officials are scrambling to contain the outbreak, highlighting the potential for widespread illness and the strain such outbreaks place on healthcare systems.

 

Beyond Measles: Preparing for the Unexpected

The measles resurgence is just one example of how unexpected health threats can emerge. As we navigate a globalized world with increased travel and interconnectedness, the potential for new and unforeseen outbreaks becomes more likely. By prioritizing prevention, strengthening public health infrastructure, and promoting a culture of awareness and preparedness, we can better face these challenges and protect our collective well-being.

 

 

Action before illness

 With the never-ending nature of unexpected health threats, you can take certain measures into your own hands. One way to take control of your health today is by having an array of emergency medications on hand at home, should the need arise.
