The program, "Emergency Department/Patient Care Survival Skills," is an introduction to the concepts of customer service as it applies to the health-care field. It is presented by Dr. Thom Mayer, medical director, and Dr. Robert Cates, assistant medical director, Department of Emer- gency Medicine, Fairfax Hospital, Faiffax, Va. The program was begun at Fair- fax Hospital in an attempt to pro- vide detailed customer service training to its entire emergency staff, but has expanded to other areas of the hospital as well. Whenever this seminar has been presented, there has been a mea- surable, often dramatic rise in patient satisfaction, as well as a corresponding decline in patient complaints. "It is our desire to bring this course to our Emergency Depart- ment in order to bring about a more clear-cut, straightforward and more importantly, a team An ALL Natural Chewable Anti-OMdant Children's VITAMIN Water spray technique could help those suffering from sinusitis Spring is coming and misery from allergies and hay fever is on the way. Hydro Med, Inc. a Sher- man Oaks, Calif. firm, has intro- duced the Grossan Pulsatile Sinus Irrigator. The new device uses a soft pul- sating spray of water to clean sen- sitive, itchy and aching nasal pas- sages of dirt, pollen and other irri- tants that cause postnasal drip and a variety of sinus problems. How does it work'?. Postnasal drip occurs when the mucus of the nose becomes too thick. Then the person is aware of thick slime in the back of the throat. In health, the cilia of the nose - microscopic hairs - beat very fast to move the mucus out of the nose to the throat, where it is disposed of in the stomach. The mucus works to move away. bacteria, dust, pollens and many unwanted smog products. When this works, people aren't even aware of it. However, if the cilia slow sown, the mucus doesn't move fast enough to stay thin and remove unwanted materials. This thicken- ing is the post-nasal drip you are bothered with. A board-certified ear, nose and throat specialist, Murray Grossan, M.D., designed an attachment to the dental device, the Water Pik. The speed of the pulsation strokes the cilia so they may resume their normal speed. By using the Grossan Sinus Attachment, the pulsation easily removes any accumulated dust or bacteria - any thick material - and this helps restore normal function. You make saline solution in the Water Pik basin, place the rubber end in the nose, bend over the sink and the solution does the rest. The ancient yoga method was to sniff salt water rapidly in and out, but the pressure was not regulated and high pressure can move bacte: ria into other sinuses or the ear. With this method, the pressure is at an exact low level, so it is even safer than nose blowing. The method has been endorsed by the medical profession in 23 medical journal articles. This method is being recom- mended especially for children and seniors, because it is gentle, safe and easy to do. Those who already own a Water Pik need the Grossan Sinus Attachment, available at pharma- cies.
