    Encore Presentation of: Sports and Boys with CHDs

    in Health

    Boys born with critical congenital heart defects (CHDs) are frequently not able to participate in sports like their heart-healthy peers. Because of the multiple surgeries needed, the frequent need for pacemakers or the concern about arrhythmias and the other complications that can accompany critical congenital heart defects, survivors of these defects frequently have to avoid contact sports or sports that are intensely aerobic in nature. How does this affect sons' relationships with their fathers? How can they still enjoy sports together despite medical restrictions? This show will feature the father of a young son as well as a father/son pair who have experience with topic.

    Senate Dems vote to repeal part of health care law

    in Politics

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- It isn't every day that more than half the Democrats in the Senate vote to repeal part of President Barack Obama's health care law.
    But that's what happened Thursday night when the Senate voted 79-20 to repeal a 2.3 percent sales tax on medical devices such as catheters, pacemakers and MRI machines, which was intended to help to finance coverage for the uninsured that starts next year.
    The medical device industry, a technology leader that provides lots of well-paying jobs around the country, has been lobbying all-out to repeal the tax. And Republicans were hoping Friday that the vote signals a new willingness by Democrats to defy the president on unpopular provisions of his signature law.

    WT2: Humanity Transformed

    in Technology

    The World Transformed 2, Part 4
    We can only imagine that, some 6 million years ago, when hominids began to stand upright, there was a tremendous controversy amongst the proto- australopithecines as to whether assuming this new posture was “natural.” Weren’t Lucy and her ilk simply violating their most basic nature?

    The debate has continued ever since, as humans have learned new skills and augmented their minds and bodies for reasons both aesthetic and practical. Today we live in an age of unprecedented human malleability — pacemakers, nose jobs, laser eye surgery, and other wonders. But that’s nothing compared to where we’re going next. We may soon be able to match the  level of change that occurred  in the six-million-year ascent from Australopithecus to modern human — only we’ll do it in a single human lifetime, or perhaps a matter of years, or maybe even faster than that.

    What might we become?A panel of futurists join us to discuss the prospects for an expanded and improved definition of humanity.

    An Affair of the Heart with Michaela Gagne Hetzler

    in Moms and Family


    Many young people have underlying heart conditions with no symptoms. In fact, the most common condition that can cause Sudden Cardiac Arrest is Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, or HCM, and as many as 1 in 500 people have this heart condition. ECG’s can detect past silent heart attacks in adults that may put them at greater risk for future severe cardiac issues. Michaela Gagne, Miss Massachusetts 2006, competed for the title of Miss America 2007 with her platform titled, Heart Health: Listen, Learn, and Live, because she was diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition and had undergone surgery for an implantable cardioverter defibrillator at the age of 17. She is currently a national spokesperson for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Campaign, and also for SADS (Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes) Foundation, as well as Parent Heart Watch, a group of parents making great strides in legislative and national awareness in memory of the children they have lost to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Michaela and I will be discussing her life’s journey, and her current global mission work with Heartbeat International, an organization that provides surgery and the means for pacemakers, defibrillators, and other devices to be implanted in some of the one million people who are dying every year without these procedures. Please call 347.327.9995 on Tuesday February 8th from 10-11 am U.S. CT to listen to Machaela and I talk about how we can all help in raising awareness about this intimate affair with our heart!
