    MOLINE, IL – A person’s smile is a special point of pride – so when dental work becomes necessary, no one likes to wait for the finished results. Now, thanks to cutting-edge advances in dental technology, realistic tooth restoration can be achieved in one day, according to the experts at Goebel Family Dentistry.

    The dentists at the helm of Goebel Family Dentistry are the father-and-son team of Gary Goebel, D.D.S., and Tom Goebel, D.D.S. Their new practice, which opened on April 1, 2013, is located at 1601 River Drive, Suite 300, in downtown Moline.

    “Using the E4D Dentist™ system, we can now offer same-day crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers to qualifying patients,” said Dr. Gary Goebel. “We are excited to bring this technology to our patients.”

    According to Dr. Gary Goebel, the E4D system replaces conventional methods, which include the use of an unpleasant impression material and the uncomfortable waiting period as it solidifies. “Images from a clean, fast digital scan are obtained in just a few minutes,” he said.

    The scanned information is then transferred to the design center, where a 3D model of the tooth needing restoration is created through the system’s state-of-the-art DentaLogic™ software. “We can customize the restoration to fit the patient’s specific characteristics,” said Dr. Tom Goebel, “after which, it is created in a milling unit, right in our office.”

    The final result is a natural-looking restoration that fits with the surrounding teeth, making the crown, inlay, onlay, or veneer virtually undetectable. “The elimination of impressions, temporaries, second appointments, and needless waiting elevates the entire dental experience for the patient,” said Dr. Gary Goebel.

    SBA List Launches National Pro-Life Women’s Caucus PDF Print E-mail

    Washington, D.C. – The Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) today announced the creation of a National Pro-Life Women’s Caucus to recruit and organize pro-life women in state legislatures and statewide offices nationwide. The initial Leadership Team includes: Gov. Jan Brewer (AZ), Gov. Mary Fallin (OK), Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann (IN), Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch (WI), Lt. Gov. Kay Ivey (AL), Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds (IA), and Atty. Gen. Pam Bondi (FL), as well as more than twenty state legislators from across the country.

    Directed by SBA List Vice President for Government Affairs and former Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, the National Pro-life Women’s Caucus will foster community between pro-life women lawmakers across the country, and connect them with the resources they need to pass pro-life laws. The Caucus will also actively encourage and recruit pro-life women to run for higher office.

    Marilyn Musgrave served three terms representing Colorado’s 4th District in the U.S. House of Representatives prior to joining the Susan B. Anthony List in 2009. She served in the Colorado House and Senate before running for the United States House in 2002.

    “Women are the best messengers when it comes to defending the lives of the unborn and the integrity of motherhood,” said Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ). “I am proud to be a part of this national effort to highlight the leadership of lawmakers who are leading the charge to protect innocent unborn human life and women from the violence of abortion.”

    This effort will complement the existing Congressional Pro-life Women’s Caucus. Congressional pro-life women leaders endorsed the effort, saying:

    “We need strong, articulate women in Washington and in state legislatures who will boldly support policies that respect and promote life,” said Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE).  “I’m excited to support the National Pro-life Women’s Caucus as it builds up the next generation of pro-life women leaders.”

    “I am passionate about the need for women’s leadership in politics, especially here in Washington,” said Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA). “The Pro-Life Women’s Caucus will advance strong pro-life women in state legislatures and give them the tools and resources needed to run for higher office. I hope to see many of its members joining me here in Congress soon.”

    The Susan B. Anthony List, and its affiliated Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, are dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women.  The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.

    Women and COPD PDF Print E-mail
    News Releases - Health, Medicine & Nutrition

    The American Lung Association released this report  today in its Disparities in Lung Health Series — “Taking Her Breath Away: The Rise of COPD in Women.” This report examines the burden of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), also known as emphysema and chronic bronchitis, among women.

    COPD has long been considered a disease of white men, as they have historically smoked at higher rates than other groups. That profile is changing, and the rate of COPD among women has climbed steadily in recent years. Closer examination reveals a number of disparities in burden of disease, risk factors, and healthcare practices that must be addressed.

    This report is an important tool to raise awareness of this health disparity, generate constructive discussions and build partnerships within the healthcare industry, as well as governments, community leaders and individuals to seek solutions.

    key findings include:

    • Since COPD has historically been thought of as a “man’s disease,” women are underdiagnosed and undertreated for COPD.
    • Women are more vulnerable than men to lung damage from cigarette smoke and other pollutants.
    • Women are especially more vulnerable to COPD before the age of 65.
    • Women with COPD have more frequent disease flare-ups—a sudden worsening of COPD symptoms that is often caused by a cold or other lung infection.
    • Effective treatment of COPD is complicated, and women don’t always get the kind of care that meets their needs.

    The quality of life for women with COPD is impaired at an earlier age, and is worse overall than that of men with similar severity of disease.

    Iowa Supreme Court Decision Protects Nursing Practice, Ensures Patient Access to Care

    PARK RIDGE, Illinois—Iowa patients were the big winners when the Iowa Supreme Court affirmed on Friday that the supervision of fluoroscopy, a type of x-ray imaging used in healthcare procedures such as pain management, is within the scope of practice for the state’s advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs), including nurse anesthetists.

    “The Iowa Association of Nurse Anesthetists (IANA) joins the Iowa Board of Nursing and the Iowa Nurses Association in applauding this momentous decision that enables thousands of Iowans to continue receiving care from highly qualified ARNPs such as Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, or CRNAs,” said IANA spokesperson Mindy Miller, CRNA.  “We couldn’t be more pleased that our state’s Supreme Court recognized, in its own words, that ‘allowing ARNP supervision of fluoroscopy improves access to health care for rural Iowans and helps lower costs,’ especially at a time when healthcare access and cost-containment are foremost on the minds of all Americans.”

    In reversing a lower court’s October 31, 2011 ruling against ARNP supervision of fluoroscopy, the Supreme Court stated that “the district court erred” in invalidating the Department of Public Health and Board of Nursing rules that allow qualified ARNPs to supervise fluoroscopy. The original lawsuit, brought by the Iowa Medical Society and the Iowa Society of Anesthesiologists in June 2010, alleged that the Department of Public Health and Board of Nursing had exceeded their rulemaking authority, and that the fluoroscopy rules illegally expanded ARNP scope of practice and authorized ARNPs to practice medicine.

    ARNPs use fluoroscopy in numerous procedures they perform within their scope of their practice,   such as interventional pain management, catheter insertion, and foreign body location.  Use of fluoroscopy in these and other procedures allows ARNPs to see the precise spot to inject medicine or insert a device. If ARNPs were not permitted to supervise fluoroscopy, patients in rural and other medically underserved areas would have to travel—sometimes great distances—to receive their care from physicians instead of from qualified healthcare professionals closer to home.

    “The Supreme Court acknowledged that CRNAs and other advanced registered nurse practitioners have been safely providing these services for years,” said Miller. “The court’s decision validates the fact that the Board of Nursing does indeed have authority to regulate its practitioners, and it puts patients’ interests ahead of the unsupported claims of organized medicine.”

    About the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA)
    Founded in 1931 and located in Park Ridge, Ill., the AANA is the professional organization representing more than 45,000 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) and student registered nurse anesthetists.  As advanced practice registered nurses, CRNAs administer approximately 33 million anesthetics to patients in the United States each year and are the primary providers of anesthesia care in rural America. In some states, CRNAs are the sole anesthesia professionals in nearly 100 percent of rural hospitals. For more information visit www.aana.com.-----------------
