What do you know about cysts?

March 7, 2019

Did you know.... 

What Is a Cyst?

It’s a lump of fluid, air, or something else. Cysts are very common, and most aren’t cancer. You may need tests (like a CT scan, ultrasound, or biopsy) to confirm that it’s a cyst. Often, cysts don’t need treatment, but your doctor can let you know if yours does. You can get cysts in many different parts of your body, and you may not even know that they’re there.   Click on this link to learn more about this topic

Did you know.... Natural Oils

S Whitmore: Posted on Saturday, December 09, 2017 12:12 PM

Some interesting information that we would like to share with you..... Check back for other topics from "Did you know....."


Why Try Natural Oils?

They are touted as alternatives to condition hair, moisturize skin, fight acne, and strengthen nails. Take a stroll down the beauty aisle of your drugstore and you’ll find them in many products. Do they work? You might need to experiment. Everyone’s skin is different, and it comes down to trial and error.

Would your children know what to do?

S Whitmore: Posted on Friday, January 19, 2018 10:41 AM

Don’t ever think you are to old or too young to learn..... this could have ended so different! Thankfully, this 8 year old acted in a way to save his mom’s life! Teach your children how to handle emergencies. Just calling 911, knowing their address and or familiar with their surroundings. When driving in the car. Have them look out the window instead of on the electronics. Talk to them about street signs, names and locations. Ask you children.... what would they do? It may surprise you! Would you get the help you may need?

Would you know what to do....

I found this information on FOX 8 Cleveland website - http://fox8.com/2018/02/12/would-you-know-what-to-do-how-to-save-a-life-using-cpr/ Be prepared for an emergency! call us to schedule your training. Tim is thankful his wife knew what to do!


MAYFIELD HEIGHTS-Would you know how to perform life-saving measures on someone in need? All this week, we are showing you how to safely administer CPR, perform the Heimlich, use an EpiPen, and what to do if someone is having a stroke.


We recently sat down with the McHugh's of Mayfield Heights. Tim McHugh is thankful for his wife's extraordinary measures that saved his life.


“Every day is a gift there are no more bad days, every day is a good day,” Karen says. She says that’s her mindset after a summer night when pressure in her husband’s ears turned into chest pain.


“No question it was the scariest thing that’s ever happened to me,” Karen remembered.

“I unloaded the car, was doing all that stuff and then I got nauseous and actually sick which we kind of blew off,” Tim explains. Tim sat down on the couch in front of the TV to take a rest. But not long after, when Karen was in the other room he had a massive heart attack.


“All of a sudden I heard this crash and I went running back into the family room and Tim had fallen onto the floor hit the coffee table,” she said.


Tim had absolutely no history of heart problems and had no thought that he might be having a heart attack, but he was lying unconscious on the living room floor.


Karen called 911 and the dispatcher started asking her questions. When Karen realized that Tim wasn’t breathing and had no pulse, she started doing CPR. Thankfully, Karen had learned CPR decades before as a Girl Scout and the skill came back.


“I never actually thought I would use it,” she said.

“Now to remember it from back in that day is phenomenal you know to the point that she actually did it correctly that I’m still here today,” said Tim.


Would you know what to do if someone near you or maybe a loved one, had a cardiac event and needed CPR? There are AEDs in nearly every public place, but would you be confident in operating one?


FOX8 went to the American Heart Association Training Center at the Cleveland Clinic. Daniel Solomon is the program coordinator and explained the life-saving skill can be learned in just a few minutes.

Solomon says always call 911 first. Then do perform CPR expose the person’s chest and begin chest compressions with one hand over the other placed in the center of the chest.


You should push hard and fast and continue until help arrives. You can switch off performing chest compressions with another person every two minutes if necessary.


If you have access to an AED open it immediately and follow the instructions.

The training came back to Karen when she needed it most and she says a lesson is CPR is worth everyone’s time.

“It is so valuable you cannot even imagine. We were told that Tim would have not only died that night, he would have stayed dead, if I would have not begun immediate CPR ,” she said.


If you are interested in learning CPR you can find a class near you by visiting the website for the American Red Cross.
