Basic reproduction number - Wikipedia

Thank you Brooks Horan

Part of my job is reviewing all the CDC and OSHA information to update infection control practices in my clinics. This is a good explanation of Ro (how many people a sick person will infect) and a simple demonstration of how infectious COVID-19 is in comparison to the flu. The Ro of the seasonal flu is 0.9-2.1. In addition, the vaccine drives it down well below 1 so we don’t get community spread and it effectively “dies on the vine” every year.
COVID-19 has an Ro of 1.94-5.7 and no vaccine to drive this number down. Face masks and social distancing suck but when you are teetering on whether to do them or not, this information helps you and me understand their benefit.
(Also- thank god for the measles vaccine, its transmissibility is incredible) In epidemiology, the basic reproduction number, or basic reproductive number (sometimes called basic reproduction ratio or basic reproductive rate), denoted (pronounced R nought or R zero)[19], of an infection can be thought of as the expected number of cases directly generated by one case in a popu...

These standard precautions include the sterilization of rooms and instruments between patients and wearing personal protective equipment like masks and gloves during treatments.

*If you have flu like symptoms including fever, dry cough, and muscle aches please call our office to reschedule for NON-emergency or routine dental procedures. If you are experiencing these symptoms AND having a dental emergency, please call our office to discuss the issue and make the appropriate arrangements. Do not come into the office in person.

This includes older adults and people who have serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, or lung disease. Out of an abundance of caution, if you ARE in a higher-risk category please reschedule for NON-emergency or routine dental procedures.

* Do not bring extra people to your appointment. If you have a driver, please have them wait in the car or return when you are finished with your appointment.

the practice of smiling!

Why should I smile when there is no joy in me? The answer to that is: Smiling is a practice. There are over three hundred muscles in your face. When you are angry or fearful, these muscles tense up. The tension in these muscles creates a feeling of hardness. If you know how to breathe in and produce a smile, however, the tension will disappear - it is what I call “mouth yoga.” Make smiling an exercise. Just breathe in and smile - the tension will disappear and you will feel much better.

P-burg girl!! And a patient ...Nice work we are proud of you Annie !!

19-year-old Ann Hansen is helping battle the Ferguson Fire in California -- behind the controls of a firefighting helicopter! The Mighty Girl from Philipsburg, Montana has been co-piloting a Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane, dropping water and fire retardant to douse flames and prevent the fire from spreading. "At most times out here, people ask if I’m with my dad or grandpa," she says. "I look young for my age, like I’m still in high school." As a relatively new pilot, Ann is eager to take on new challenges and is not deterred by the risky flying: "Everything we do has a little risk [but] it’s fun, for one, and you’re helping with something."

Growing up, Ann was fascinated by the crop dusters that would fly above the ranch where her father was a manager, and dreamed of flying one day. So ten days after she graduated from high school last year, she enrolled in flight school in Montana, and then later at a helicopter school in Oregon. "I never had any previous aviation experience. It was overwhelming," she admits. But she persisted, earned her license, and now works for Helicopter Transport Services, where she has the opportunity to take on special projects -- including fire fighting jobs. "It just depends where they need me to go," she says. "The challenge is fun."

In California, Hansen has been flying with Gregg Deacon for several weeks, who says she quickly proved herself. "I’ve been very impressed with her, especially considering her minimal amount of experience," he says. "It’s a complex aircraft and our mission is complex. She’s monitoring a lot of instruments and dealing with most of the radio calls. She’s doing a lot of multitasking. And we go into some difficult types of places." For Hansen, it's been fulfilling to help communities threatened by the fire and great experience towards her goal of becoming a PIC, or pilot in charge, the equivalent of a captain. As to where the future will take her, Ann says, "there is still a lot to explore."
