Monday Medical: Bee sting allergy — to hike or not to hike 26.6.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Outdoor recreation is one of the biggest draws to living in Steamboat Springs, but for those with a history of bee sting allergy, it can be more frightening than enjoyable, at times. The risk of a repeat reaction can be as high as 60 percent, a fact that keeps many outdoor enthusiasts cautious and afraid. Bee stings can cause a variety of reactions. Most stings will cause redness, pain and swelling at the site of the sting. This local reaction is expected, and while it is unpleasant, no treatment is needed, as it will resolve on its own. A systemic reaction, on the other hand, can be fatal. Systemic reactions can range from mild to life threatening and include skin flushing, hives, itching and swelling of the eyes, lips or throat. Severe reactions can cause problems with breathing, swelling of the throat and collapse. These severe bee-sting reactions are the leading cause of fatal anaphylaxis. For individuals with a prior systemic reaction, it is important to have a dual pack of epinephrine ...
Proponents, opponents consider single-payer healthcare plan during debate 26.6.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Opposing sides took the stage last week at Strings Pavilion to debate the merits of a proposed single-payer state healthcare system. Voters will decide in November whether to approve Amendment 69 , which would separate Colorado from the Affordable Care Act and make it the first state to pay for comprehensive healthcare for residents through a program called ColoradoCare. Employees and employers would together pay 10 percent of payroll costs to the state, which would then provide coverage through ColoradoCare, eliminating the role of private insurance companies. Proponents of the plan say that, under ColoradoCare, more people would be insured, most would end up paying less for insurance and overall healthcare costs will go down billions of dollars. “It simplifies the healthcare system,” said Owen Perkins, a spokesperson for ColoradoCareYES, who, along with journalist and author T.R. Reid, argued in favor of the amendment. “It becomes a plan made by Coloradans, for Coloradans.” Opponents argue that, while ...
