Shari Rudavsky Indianapolis Star Published 6:00 PM EST Nov 26, 2018 The first transplant programs that Bruce Anderson consulted about a new liver turned him down. At age 79, they said, he was just too old. Then one of Anderson’s doctors in California recommended he try the transplant program in Indianapolis. Anderson, who had an active psychiatry practice and was in good health other than that diseased liver, reached out to Dr. Chandrashekhar Kubal, a transplant surgeon at Indiana University Health. Rather than rejecting him outright because of his birthdate, IU Health probed further. “In our program, we do not have a cutoff or we don’t believe in putting numbers in our selection criteria,” Kubal said. “We look at patients individually.... If you can get five to 10 years of good quality of life, I think that’s worthwhile. In Dr. Anderson’s case, that was our thought process.” More health news: … [Read more...] about How old is too old for a new liver?
How old is my heart test
Health heart rate heart health Exercise Humans have been aware of their heart rate for thousands of years. But knowing the meaning behind the beats isn’t so simple. Myriad factors affect our heart rate, including our age, medical conditions, medications, diet, and fitness level. Today, we’re even more aware of our heart rate, thanks to devices such as smartwatches that can measure every beat during rest and exercise. So, what is normal? How should we measure our heart rate? Surprisingly, there are over 12 places you can feel your pulse. But there are two that are the easiest and most reliable—the radial artery, which runs along the inside of the forearm from the base of the thumb; and the carotid artery, which runs up the front of the neck two fingers to the side of the Adam’s apple. A person places two fingers on their wrist to measure their heart rate.

LOS FRESNOS, Texas—The first day after they were caught hiding in tall grass near the Rio Grande river, before they were separated, the Honduran father and his seven-year-old son were detained in an air-conditioned Border Patrol station. After a night in the thick heat of borderlands summer, the boy was shivering, and he asked his father insistently to hold him to keep him warm. That was what the father, Mauricio Posadas Andrade, recalled in the days after border officers pried his son away from him on June 12, and after he was confined with dozens of other migrant parents in a detention center near Brownsville. For ten days he had no communication with his namesake son, Mauricio, and no idea where he was. Seized with insomnia, Posadas imagined that the boy had been taken back to the Border Patrol “icebox” and was freezing there without him.Story Continued Below The relief was powerful 10 days later when he was summoned by a guard to a phone and heard his son’s … [Read more...] about ‘They Reached In and Tore Out a Piece of my Heart’
Jennie Key Cincinnati Enquirer Published 11:49 p.m. UTC Jun 20, 2018 It was a hard day in court for the relatives of a family killed in an Oct. 26 collision in Independence as witnesses described the scene of the crash and the condition of their loved ones. Vivian Cooper, grandmother of Samantha Malohn and great-grandmother to the children who died, cried on the shoulder of a family member. Rodney Pollitt Sr., the driver's father, struggled for control as a witness testified he had not realized the vehicle where his grandchildren died even had a back seat. Prosecutors say Daniel Greis, 58, was under the influence of marijuana and was legally drunk Oct. 26, when the Honda Pilot he was driving hit the family's Honda Accord on Staffordshire Road in Independence as they drove to the home of the children's grandfather. Samantha Malohn, 27, Rodney Pollitt Jr., 26, and their three children, Hailieann, 9, Brenden, 8, and 6-year-old Cailie were … [Read more...] about Witness of Pollitt family crash: ‘They pulled the boy from the car, and my heart dropped’
