New guidelines for saving lives of heart attack victims For years, medical professionals and the general public were told that when someone isn't breathing, the steps are to clear the airway, pinch the nose and breathe for them, then do chest compressions. However, the new American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines are out today, and they change the order. The new rules are meant to get oxygen-rich blood to the brain faster, says Shirley Hagenmiester, AHA regional faculty. "In the last five years, it was proven that chest compressions are the main component of CPR, and the sooner we can start and continue chest compressions, the better is the chance of survival for the person who is down." Research shows that it takes an extra critical 30 seconds to open the airway and begin chest compressions, she explains. The change in the CPR sequence is for everyone except new- borns who still need open airways and mouth-to-mouth before compres- sions. "These new guidelines are not only for adults. We are looking at adult, child and infant. We will bring this into the classroom training and edu- cate more people - that is our drive. With the training and the new guide- lines, we hope to save more people." The American Heart Association recommends that an untrained bystander use what is called "Hands- Only" CPR, which means call 9-1-1 first, then push hard and fast on the center of the chest until help arrives. Free web seminar set on Alzheimer's caregiving According to the Alzheimer's Association, nearly II million Americans are providing care for someone with Alzheimer's disease or dementia without assistance. The non- profit National Private Duty Association (NPDA), along with the Minnesota Chapter, has announced that it will host a family caregiver education web conference entitled Caring for Someone with Alzheimer's at Home on Nov. 16, 2010, at 8 p.m. EST. The free live and interactive web conference will provide families with advice on steps to help them provide the necessary care. "November is recognized as National Family Caregivers Month," said Sheila McMackin, president of NPDA. "NPDA is hosting this valu- able event to raise awareness of fami- ly caregiver issues during this impor- tant month. Our goal is to provide education to families dealing with the special needs of Alzheimer's patients. Keeping someone with Alzheimer's at home can be challenging, but very positive. Our experts will provide insight and education to support care- givers facing this situation." The web conference topics will address issues relating to patient assessment, care plans, caregiver edu- cation, safety, and other care issues related specifically to Alzheimer's patients and the disease itself. Pre-registration for the event is required.

The NPDA, a non-profit organization, currently represents more than 1,100 home care agencies in forty-four states and Puerto Rico. WINNER OF $50 IN CHRISTMAS SCRIP last Friday was Brenda Koval, right, of Ortonville. Brenda had registered at Conroy Eye Care Empty tables this holiday earlier in the week. Presenting her with her scrip is Heidi Pelowski of for Minnesota families Conroy Eye Care. An overabundance of food is a long way, Hiebert adds: One donated ''U THE CI.ASSIFIEDJ holiday "tradition" for many families dollar can purchase nine dollars in planning their Thanksgiving menus, food for a family in need. Not so for thousands of Minnesotans, however, as they struggle to put even the most basic of meals on their table. According to the U.S. Department of . Agriculture, the number of people ,, without enough food in their house has grown by 14 million nationwide since 2007, now totaling more than 50 million. Jill Hiebert with Hunger Solutions Minnesota explains the change in Q demand her organization has seen in  recent months. _,a "People are going to the food ' shelves now on a regular basis, rather than making an occasional visit, _ because they just do not have the food budget." In the last five years, Hiebert says ,.,%, Minnesota has witnessed a more than ' 70 percent increase in the number of people using food stamps or partici- ,,,, patlng in food support programs. National statistics show 43 million Americans living in poverty, the high- est number in 50 years. A lack of food during the holidays is tough for families in need, as they try and maintain the holiday traditions they grew up with, Hiebert explains. "That is going to be especially painful during the holidays because there is such a focus on getting together and eating together."
