Patient Compliance for Transplant Caregivers A huge factor in having a successful, long-living transplant is compliance. Patient compliance with transplants can dictate whether a transplant will survive. Bad compliance could even prevent someone from receiving a transplant. There are many different factors that go into a successful transplant: medication compliance, compliance with nutrition, doctors appointments, insurance, finances, etc. You may wonder how you can help with the patient's compliance. You may also feel stress due to monitoring the compliance of the patient in addition to providing so much other care.
In 1980 Beck and colleagues completed a study about medication compliance in pediatric renal transplant patients. The study found that initially 26 percent of participants were non-compliant with their medication regimen post-transplant, and after extensive counseling and education 19 percent remained non-compliant with their medication regimen. Factors they found associated with non-compliance were adolescence, female sex, and family instability. Though this study was completed over 30 years ago, it still shows that with family stability, transplant medication compliance may improve.
A different study completed in 1999 by Dew and colleagues found that after heart transplants, focusing on patients' psychosocial status improved medication compliance which will further improve physical health outcomes. This study helps show that by working with the patient and family post-transplant to ensure their psychosocial status is stable may assist in prolonging their life. This can be done in many ways, including counseling for mental health illnesses, assistance with insurance and financial issues, and even assisting in family issues.

Every ten minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list. More than 120,000 men, women and children currently need lifesaving organ transplants. The United Network for Organ Sharing also reports that an average of 18 people die each day from a lack of available organs for transplant. Jessica Pearlman and Anthony Pugliese know what it’s like to be on that waiting list. They also know what it’s like to finally receive an organ that allows them to live another day. Emily Wiebke, Kathy Keller and Eileen Pearlman will share with us what it’s like to be the mother of a heart transplant recipient. With 90% of Americans saying they support donation but only 30% taking the essential steps to become a donor, this Episode focuses on answering questions about who needs organ donation, why it’s so important to donate organs and the difference organ donation can make in the lives of families.
Breastfeeding a baby with a congenital heart defect has unique and special challenges. Many babies with critical congenital heart defects are taken away from the mother before having a chance to nurse at all. These babies also frequently have open-heart surgery within the first days or weeks of life and are often intubated and paralyzed which can interfere with the baby's natural sucking reflex. How can mothers breastfeed these medically fragile children? What myths surround breastfeeding a baby with a congenital heart defect? What are the benefits of breastfeeding and what can mothers do if their babies are too weak to nurse? We'll discuss these topics and more with two heart moms who have breastfed their babies and a nurse who is a breastfeeding specialist.

The Heart of a Hebrew Woman is about bringing women together and expanding on the Truth. The Truth begins with understanding our roles as women and gaining a stronger relationship with the Most High. This is a great opportunity for us to create a unique dialogue that will expand our thinking about who we are and where we are going. My goal is not to preach, but to teach about loving yourself, your husband and your children while serving the Most High. In addition, I believe this show will encourage and motivate women throughout the week.
Let us now give praises to the Most High, by thanking him for renewing our minds and instilling a strong foundation of learning The Heart of a Hebrew Woman.
