CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 5 - April 11, 1996 - 37 Beebe to celebrate National Laboratory Week April 14-: 0 Beebe Medical Center will cele- brate National Medical Laborato- ry Week, April 14-20, With a dis- play in the first floor sun lobby. As this year's theme, "Helping You Have a Healthy Tomorrow" suggests, medical laboratory pro- fessionals practice the most cost- effective kind of medicine - pre- ventative medicine. By providing accurate test results, medical technologists help physicians make early and correct diagnoses, when chances of cures are greatest. Many times a test, such as the prostate specific anti- gen (PSA) test for prostate prob- lems or the Pap smear for cervical cancer, will discover a condition before symptoms occur. Early detection and diagnosis means early and usually less complicated treatments, shortened hospital stays and patients' speedy return to productive lifestyles. There are close to 2,000 differ- ent types of tests available in med- ical laboratories. A host of these including the urinalysis, thyroid functions, throat cultures, and a variety of blood tests are among the most useful and least-expen- sive diagnostic procedures per- formed. This is important when healthcare costs are a major eco- nomic concern. Asthma focus of educational day April 12 at Del Tech Over 25 million people in America have asthma; it causes more than 5,000 deaths each year in this country.
