Today is Certified Nurses Day, so we think that calls for a little extra doting over flight nurses!
As if completing a registered nurse degree wasn’t a feat in itself, those who want to become flight nurses must receive continued specialized training and certification before they can even begin applying for positions. http://www.flightnursehq.com/flight-nurse-training-and-certification/ This kind of perseverance demonstrates that flight nurses have achieved the skills and knowledge it takes to perform in such a specialized environment, and continue to pursue the highest levels of nursing.
But flight nurses have a long history beginning in the military field due to global war time needs. Leave it to the women to step up to the call and produce so many heroines of early flight nurse history! http://www.dodlive.mil/index.php/2013/03/womens-history-monthflight-nurses-revolutionize-military-medical-care/
Today there continue to be so many examples of female flight nurses who show the same pioneering spirit as they maintain their legacy. Though today’s flight nurses aren’t sent into battle before training is complete as their original predecessors, there are far more advanced training and rigorous standards to meet today.
Aero Jet upholds the highest standards with all of our staff. What a privilege it is to work with people who are brave and compassionate and also known for their clinical excellence and operational expertise. Thank you to nurses everywhere who advocate these same ideals. You are a credit to your profession. Happy Certified Nurses Day!
Today is World Kidney Day and we want to help make more people aware of the ways to take care of, prevent, and fight kidney diseases. So just what do those pair of fist-sized, bean-shaped organs tucked deep inside the abdomen do in there? Kidneys actually have a lot of jobs! The main job of these powerhouses is to remove toxins and excess water from your blood. Did you know that every day, kidneys filter 200 liters of blood, removing two liters of toxins, water and waste? But that’s not all! Kidneys help control blood pressure, produce red blood cells and keep bones healthy. Your kidneys control the body’s chemical balance, as well as salt and water so your blood pressure remains the same.
Despite the hardworking kidney’s job description, according to The National Kidney Foundation, “26 million American adults have chronic kidney disease and millions of others are at risk.” Every year millions die of kidney failure, heart attacks, and strokes linked to chronic kidney disease. World Kidney Day encourages everyone to learn more about the importance of our kidneys and to raise awareness that kidney disease is common, harmful and treatable.
Kidney disease can affect people of all ages and races and may even go unnoticed for years, but if detected early, kidney diseases can be treated. The World Kidney Day website has information on what symptoms to look for that may indicate a problem of kidney disease. They also have 8 Golden Rules they suggest to help take care of the kidneys. http://www.worldkidneyday.org/faqs/take-care-your-kidneys/8-golden-rules/
Chronic kidney disease is preventable and treatable, so visit their website to educate yourself and your loved ones on these incredible organs.
