Welcome to the Show
Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up in this week’s episode, we have three special interviews on a variety of health and wellness topics for you. This is a pot pouri episode for you so stay tuned!
Before we get to the news, though, I’d like you to make sure you follow up on all of the information from this and every episode by heading over to NursingShow.com and checking out the links in each episode’s show notes. There are also other articles and links there to things like the free Nursing Show mobile app, student nurse tips and a whole lot more. Make sure you are following up so you know how what I talk about in the show each week is applied using your own nursing scope of practice.
If you want to get back in touch with me, please drop me an email. You can send those e-mails in to NursingShow@Gmail.com. I love to hear from you and I make sure I respond back to every email that comes in. Send me links to news items you’d like me to cover, interview suggestions with you or somebody you know.
Also, a special thank you to Physio-Control and the American Heart Association and their excellent CPR resources for a special partnership supporting this episode of the podcast. That’s it. I will have more contact information coming up later on in this episode. Let’s get into this week’s news items coming right up!
First up, you know how fragile little baby’s lungs are. There is a seasonal threat to those lungs that hits every year at this time and is a leading cause of hospitalization for babies in the US during their first year of life. Joining me now are Kari Judson, mother and passionate RSV awareness advocate, and Dr. Gregory Sysyn of Pediatrix Group of Georgia to help inform our nursing audience about severe RSV disease and the common signs and symptoms to watch for.
Next, we have a look at helping women with low sex drive. For some women, this may be a sign of an underlying health condition. As nurses, we are taught to look at the whole patient and that includes their sexual health and wellness. A new national survey reveals that about half of women are having lower sex drive than in the past and they’re just dealing with it despite the resulting strain on their relationships and their well-being. I talk with Dr. Leah Millheiser, clinical assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Stanford University. She chats with me to help educate women on this under-discussed health condition and ways to help women find the confidence to talk with their health professionals about the sexual concerns.
Finally, digestive issues are things that many of us can relate to, at least some of the time. They’re unpleasant and we don’t often talk about out symptoms due to fear and embarrassment. But what if that stomach ache you or a patient complains of isn’t just a stomach ache? What if it’s a sign of an underlying problem that’s rare but treatable called EPI. I chat with Dr. Phil Hart about why it’s important for people to speak candidly with their healthcare professionals about their gastrointestinal issues and why digestive health should be a health priority for everyone.
Finally in this week’s show is a chat with podcasters and health care professionals, Dr. Dustin Ballard and his wife and nurse, Angela Ballard. They are the hosts of the Medically Clear podcast and are here to chat with me about how to help manage shift work and the body’s need for adjustment to lack of a regular sleep schedule.
