Senior #TeleHealth Care at a Distance

Often the switch to telecare–technology used to help caretakers provide treatment to their patients off-site–is portrayed as either a nightmare scenario or a much needed panacea for all our healthcare woes. This widely researched study probes what happens when technologies are used to provide healthcare at a distance. Drawing on ethnographic studies of both patients and nurses involved in telecare, Jeannette Pols demonstrates that instead of resulting in less intensive care for patients, there is instead a staggering rise in the frequency of contact between nursing staff and their patients. Care at a Distance takes the theoretical framework of telecare and provides hard data about these innovative care practices, while producing an accurate portrayal of the pros and cons of telecare.

The Power to Save A Life Is in Your Hands! Personal Health Service Review: American Red Cross #CPR Training By Robelyn A. Garcia, PhD @RGPhD

I. Experiential Summary: American Red Cross Citizen CPR (Hands-Only) Training.
Lifesaving health service provided by Senior University (
A.  American Red Cross Hands-Only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
B.  Easy to Learn
C.  No Mouth to Mouth Contact
D.  Appropriate for All Ages to Perform
E.  Created as a Safe Training Alternative to Adult & Pediatric CPR Certification

II. Review
A.  If you see a teen, adult or senior citizen suddenly collapse, hands-only CPR is the
preferred form of CPR. This will increase the likelihood of saving the life of a person
experiencing a breathing or cardiac emergency that occurs outside of a medical or
healthcare facility. Before giving Citizen CPR take the following three “C” steps:
1. CHECK – Check to make sure the scene is safe, tap the person on the shoulder
and ask if they are okay, then look for signs of normal rhythmic breathing.
2. CALL – If the victim does not respond when asked if they are okay or if they
are not breathing, call 911. You may also ask a bystander to call 911.
3. CARE – If the person is unresponsive, begin hands-only CPR compressions.

III. Consumer Advice
A.  It is of utmost importance to check and confirm your American Red Cross Instructor
certifications. In the digital age of e-health and m-health this can be done very easily
at or by calling 1-800- RED-CROS.
B.  Senior University American Red Cross Instructor IDs include but are not limited to:

V. Call to Action
An important aspect of health promotion is taking reasonable safety precautions;
prudent safety measures must include preparing all household members to deal with medical emergencies in one’s home or community (Barrett, 2013; Senior University, 2018). I highly recommend that adults learn Citizen CPR. Further, if you work in a healthcare, academic, or athletic setting I would also recommend becoming certified in Adult & Pediatric CPR/AED.
