HealthBreak | Nitrous Oxide
 
01:31
Nitrous Oxide has been used for decades in Europe and Canada as a pain reliever for women in labor, and has no known side-effects for moms and babies. And now, the Missoula Family Maternity Center at Providence St. Patrick Hospital is proudly offering the option. "Nitrous Oxide is a colorless gas that's inhaled," says Mark Garnaas, MD - an OB/GYN doctor at St. Pat's. "A woman in labor can give it to herself, and it allows her to be mobile - she can still walk - and it leaves options open for other pain relief if she desires." "The technique is that the mom holds the mask up to herself," explains Dr. Garnaas. "It takes about 50 seconds to start to work, so ideally, she would start breathing in the Nitrous Oxide in and the medication would be at its most effective before the next contraction occurs." Nitrous Oxide is one example of the wide range of safe options to help laboring moms achieve the type of experience they're hoping for at Providence St. Patrick Hospital's Western Montana Maternity Center in Missoula.

HealthBreak | Hospital Nutrition

Providence is committed to health care, and that includes the food it serves to its Missoula hospital patients, visitors and employees. "As of 2014, we became a 100 percent fryer-less hospital," shares Missy Kelleher, director of Food and Nutrition Services at Providence St. Patrick Hospital. "That impacts peoples' health in a great way." "Years ago, we served mostly frozen vegetables to patients," Missy continues. "Now, all our vegetables, except for peas and corn, are brought in, prepped and served fresh, every day. We serve an entrée in our café that is considered green and fresh by the ADA, meeting a certain level of calories, is fresh and heart healthy." St. Patrick Hospital also offers a program called "Cuisine on Call," allowing patients to order meals when they want them. "If you are on a therapeutic diet, the software will filter out items from the menu that you are not able to eat," says Missy. "It will also alert our staff if you go over a certain level of carbohydrates or sodium, and we'll try to negotiate a different option." "Every request is cooked to order," Kelleher continues. "Patients receive a nice, hot meal at its optimum freshness - it's a great satisfier for our patients." To find out more, visit http://montana.providence.org/hospitals/st-patrick/
HealthBreak | WATCHMAN Implant Device
 
01:31
Atrial Fibrillation is the most common heart arrhythmia and effects the electrical currents of the heart. "Atrial fibrillation (also called A-fib) is a heart condition where the top two chambers just kind of shake," explains Steve Shepro, MCHS PA-C, a physician assistant at the International Heart Institute of Montana. "It can reduce the output of the heart, and also cause clots to form." "Ninety percent of the clots that cause strokes come from a little pocket in the heart called the left atrial appendage (LAA), Steve continues. "If we can block, or pinch that off, and prevent those clots from breaking free and moving to the brain, we can reduce the risk of stroke." At the International Heart Institute of Montana in Missoula, this can be accomplished by implanting the WATCHMAN Implant device. "WATCHMAN is essentially a little umbrella that is deployed into the left atrial appendage - the pocket in the heart where blood clots can form - and is permanently sealed off when heart tissue grows around it," Shepro says. "It's a lifetime treatment." The Missoula heart institute is the only facility in Montana that offers this procedure.

HealthBreak | Anxiety and Depression
 
01:31
One in five people will experience mental illness in any given year. Two of the most common types are anxiety and depression. "The kinds of things we see patients with anxiety feel are a sense of doom, or feeling nervous - maybe edgy, or uncomfortable in their own skin," explains Laura Salyers, MD - a psychiatrist at Providence St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, MT. "To the extremes, they may feel a panic attack, where they have difficulty breathing, feel the heart race like a heart attack - having a major fear that they might die." "Patients with depression may have problems with sleep," Dr. Salyers continues. "Whether they're sleeping too much, or very little; lack of interest in ordinary activities; things that usually bring them pleasure are no longer joyful; troubles with motivation; troubles with appetite (eating too much or too little); feelings of overwhelming guilt; sadness; crying spells; anger; irritability. And when people feel their life is no longer worth living." If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, the specialists at Providence can help. "The earlier treatment, the better," says Dr. Salyers. "Never give up hope. Reach out - treatment works."

This is done by a group of specialists, which includes interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, cardiac imaging specialists (which include cardiologists and radiologists), cardiac anesthesiologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and registered nurses. "It's an opportunity for us to come together," says Dr. Maddux. "We think about our individual patients and come up with a plan for them." To learn more, visit http://IHIMontana.org.

HealthBreak | Endocrinology
 
01:31
Endocrinology is the study of hormones; and endocrinologist is a doctor who diagnoses and treats diseases of the body's hormone-producing glands. "About 90 percent of what I do is related to diabetes and thyroid disorders," says Christopher Corsi, MD - a Western Montana endocrinologist at Providence St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula. "Predominantly, kids will get Type 1 Diabetes; adults will get Type 2. Both are diseases of blood sugar, and the reason they relate to endocrinology is there is a hormone in the body that controls blood sugar, which is insulin." Missoula primary care providers manage most aspects of diabetes, but if additional help is needed, endocrinologists offer expertise. "Diabetes is a chronic disease - it doesn't go away," says Dr. Corsi. "What we're trying to do is help people still live a good quality of life while they're managing it, but also achieve their goals to stay healthy."

The Family Maternity Center at Providence St. Patrick Hospital is committed to provide the highest quality care for moms and babies. That includes newborn screenings, like a hearing test, to check for mild to severe hearing loss; tests for jaundice and metabolic illnesses; and screening for congenital heart defects. "There are seven critical congenital heart defects that can cause a very severe illness early on in life, which may have no forewarned symptoms," explains Missoula pediatrician Dr. Laurie Carter. " Those are screened before the baby leaves the St. Patrick Hospital Nursery." Dr. Carter goes on to explain the importance of newborn screening exams at the Missoula, Montana maternity center. "If you don't catch the majority of diseases early, they have a very good change of becoming quite severe by the time they are recognized. Our goal with screening is looking for disease presence in babies before any signs of illness." To learn more, visit http://providence.org/StPatsBabies
