10 Weird Resuscitation Techniques From 200 Years Ago

dryrubbing-sMental_floss presented this list that started with “1. Rubs and marinades”, went on to “2. Sticks and whips” and “3. Blowing smoke”, and included 7 more techniques of old time medical practice.

Three 20-Year-Olds Build Their Own Version of Healthcare.gov

According to TheVerge –

A trio of programmers in San Francisco have built their own version of Healthcare.gov, the federal insurance marketplace that has had serious technical issues since launching on October 1st, over the course of “a few late nights.” HealthSherpa allows users to browse health insurance plans available in their zip code, and even calculates what federal tax subsidies they may be eligible for.

It is a decision by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to stop funding for some organ transplants as the state struggles to reduce a yawning budget deficit. “She’s signing death warrants — that’s what she’s doing. This is death for me,” says Gravagna, 44, a heavy-set man who takes 14 medications to stay alive. Gravagna is among 98 people denied state Medicaid funding for potentially life-saving transplants and at the forefront of a harrowing battle over the state’s public finances.
