Welch-Allyn Vs. Riester

Although Welch Allyn is the well-known brand name in wall-mounted diagnostics, the Riester Ri-Former Diagnostic Station, surpasses their wall transformer set on several different fronts.

Both Riester and Welch-Allyn manufacture durable products, but Riester offers a two-year warranty, instead of the Welch-Allyn one year. The Riester Ophthalmoscope has almost double the amount of corrective lenses and more apertures and filters. The Riester Ri-Former Diagnostic Station also offers one environmentally friendly, centralized electrical power source for convenience, eliminating the need for conventional or rechargeable batteries. This way the doctor can simply enter an exam room without having to worry about carrying an otoscope or ophthalmoscope with and never has to worry about the batteries going dead. The Riester station is extendable as well, to both the left or the right of the main station, while Welch-Allyn’s station can only extend right. While the Welch-Allyn can be extended with only 3 modules, the Riester ri-Former is extendable to 5 (see below).

Could Environmental Sampling Have Prevented the Irish Potato Famine?

Phytophthora infestans. Even the name sounds sinister. It’s the fungus-like microorganism responsible for one of the worst famines ever to strike Europe: the Irish Potato Famine. Better known as potato blight or late blight, Phytophthora infestans is the bug responsible for claiming the lives of nearly 1 million Irish people and forever changing the political landscape of the region.

But, what if way back in 1845 we could have tested for infected crops using common environmental sampling methods? What if we’d had the same agricultural and food safety policies in place then as we do today? Could the impact of the Potato Blight have been contained?

Why Was Ireland So Affected by the Potato Blight?

Purchasing a Medical Refrigerator

Due to refrigeration challenges, purchasing the right medical refrigerator is a crucial matter. Medical grade refrigerators secure temperature stability, allow for convenience, accommodate traceable temperature monitoring systems and have the ability to drop in temperature much more rapidly than non-medical grade units. Due to the exceptional effectiveness of compressors in medical grade refrigerators, they achieve their goal temperature quicker and are capable of sustaining it better.

When it comes to medical refrigerators and freezers, the objective is to obtain units that operate dependably and consistently, without causing any trouble for the staff. If refrigeration systems exceed or fall below a specific temperature range, safety, product loss and resources are all jeopardized.

While a medical refrigerator may call for a higher investment than a non-medical unit, the long term benefits will more than make up for that initial payment. The expenses accrued from damaged or unsafe product due to failed temperature maintenance can be considerable.

Purchasing the right medical refrigerator for your facility inspires certainty that products are being accurately cared for. Because certain products are extremely sensitive to temperature, a quality medical refrigerator is an essential part of providing safe health care.

The Oldest Man to Swim the English Channel

136 years after Matthew Webb became the first person to swim the English Channel, Roger Allsopp from Great Britain became the oldest person to complete the 21-nautical mile swim. Allsopp is a few months over 70.

"I do feel an immense sense of achievement and relief that I have been successful." Allsopp told the BBC.
