Mueller Ultra Kettle Review

 

 

Mueller Ultra SpeedBoil Cordless Electric Kettle Glass Tea, Coffee Pot 1.8 Liter Cordless with LED Light, Borosilicate Glass BPA-Free with Auto Shut-Off and Boil-Dry Protection

 

After causing 3 stove top glass kettle to be destroyed by forgetting them on the fire while my attentions were occupied elsewhere (sometimes this happens to us ) I decided to get a kettle that will turn its self off after the liquid had reached boiling point.

After searching and looking at a number of kettles I decided on the Mueller Ultra Kettle model # M995 –110-120v

it is made from Borosilicate Glass which resists scratching and scuffing. It is  10x 9 x 7.5 inches and weighs 2.01 lbs light weight and has a sturdy handle which is Heat-Resistant Anti-Slip Grip Handle, no worries of it slipping out of your hands or getting burned while holding it. 100% BPA Free and will not contaminate liquids. The automatic shut-off mechanism activates within 30 seconds after the water is fully boiling.

 

It has a  bright LED’s which indicate the kettle is heating. It holds a maximum capacity of 1.8L, the water comes to a full boil within minutes and is ready to use iti is  Completely Cordless when off the base, the Mueller Ultra Kettle allows you easy and unobstructed pouring. 360° Clear Rotational Glass Body is perfect for precise measuring of water.

 

This is a great product.  it has the base that connects to the electrical outlet and the kettle sits on top of this base (so the kettle doesn’t need a power cable attached to it).  the water does not have a metallic taste The base has lights and when the kettle is on the lights reflects through the glass kettle giving it a very nice effect.

The cover of the kettle does not completely comes off so cleaning it can be a bit difficult but soaking it overnight in some white vinegar and water will get rid of any scaling.

 

This kettle is by no means perfect I am sure there are better ones out there but  for the price this is a great buy and I would recommend this kettle to any one.

For me this is the perfect solution for my forgetfulness and being preoccupied it is just what I needed

Pulmonary Hypertension(lung disease affecting blood vessel)–Maintaining good health

 

 

 

 

Let’s look at the other Lung disease that affects the blood vessels In my last article we looked at pulmonary embolism(https://healthandwellnessforboomers.com/lung-disease-affecting-the-blood-vessel-maintaining-good-health )and in this post, we take a look at pulmonary hypertension

What is pulmonary hypertension?
Pulmonary hypertension (PHT) is high blood pressure in the heart-to-lung system that delivers fresh (oxygenated) blood to the heart while returning used(oxygen-depleted) blood back to the lungs. Pulmonary blood pressure reflects the pressure the heart exerts to pump blood from the heart through the arteries of the lungs. In other words, it focuses on the pressure of the blood flow in your lungs.

Systemic high blood pressure can cause the heart to work harder to deliver blood to the body, pulmonary hypertension can occur when the arteries in the lungs narrow and thicken, slowing the flow of blood through the pulmonary arteries to the lungs. As a result, the pressure in your arteries rises as your heart works harder to try to force the blood through. Heart failure occurs when the heart becomes too weak to pump enough blood to the lungs.

The lungs and heart work together to carry oxygen throughout the body. The heart is a
muscle made up of two halves that pumps the blood. Deoxygenated ( oxygen-depleted blood)returns from the rest of the body, it first goes into the right side of the heart, which pumps it into the lungs. The lungs take carbon dioxide from the blood which the body releases as you exhale and replace it with oxygen that you have inhaled.

After the blood picks up the oxygen, it is considered “oxygenated” again and is ready to go to other areas of the body. The blood then travels from the lungs into the left side of the heart. The left side of the heart then pumps the blood to the rest of the body. This process
starts over again with each heart beat.

The right side of the heart is smaller and weaker than the left side because it only pumps blood through the lungs which are normally a low-pressure system. The left side of the heart is more muscular as it has to pump blood throughout the rest of the body, against gravity and up to your head and all the way to your toes and back again

Common diagnostic tests include an echocardiograph, chest X-ray, electrocardiogram (EKG) and catheterization of the right heart. Discovering the underlying cause may involve a chest CT scan, chest MRI, lung function tests, the polysomnogram (PSG), lung ventilation/perfusion scan and blood tests

Symptoms of pulmonary hypertension
Early symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath during routine activity
  • Fatigue
  • Chest pain
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Pain in upper right side of the abdomen
  • Decreased appetite

Later symptoms include:

  • Feeling light-headed, especially during physical activity
  • Fainting
  • Swelling in the ankles or legs
  • Bluish lips or skin

 

.
There five groups that fall under pulmonary hypertension

Group 1 (PAH) pulmonary arterial hypertension is caused by drugs or toxins or by conditions such as connective tissue disease, HIV infection, liver disease, congenital heart disease .sickle disease, schistosomiasis ( infestation of the liver by parasites) or by conditions that affect the veins and small blood vessels of the lungs PAH can also be inherited

Group 2 pulmonary hypertension is associated with heart disease (the left side) mitral valve disease or long-term high blood pressure this is the most cause of pulmonary hypertention.

Group 3 Pulmonary hypertension is related to lung problems like COPD and intersitial lung disease( Rheumatoid arthritis, Mixed connective tissue disease sjogren’s syndrome( the imune system attacks its own fealthy cells)as well as sleep  apnea and other sleep breathing disorders.

Group 4 is caused  by blood clots in the lungs or general clotting disorders.

Group 5  is triggered by other disorders such as disease or conditions of the blood such as polycythaemia ( an abnormally increased concentration hemoglobin in the blood caused by either a reduction of plasma volume or an increase in red blood cells number,) metabolic disorders such as thyroid andglycogen storage disease; and other conditions such as kidney disease and tumors that press on the pulmonary arteries.

There is no known cure for pulmonary hypertension but one with the disease can still live an active and fulfilling life by following the doctors advice and by working with your doctor the symptoms can be managed. be careful about taking over the counter medication it would be wise to consult with the doctor as some of these medicatin can worsen the symptons.

 

Some life style changes are suggestd to help in the control of the symptoms

No smoking if addicted to cigarette the doctor will be able to help as there are progrmms and products to help break the addiction.

Eat healthy have a variety of fruits, vegetables, lean meat, poultry, fish (salmon, sardines or fatty fish very rich in omega 3) low fat or fatfree milk ( a low fat, sodium, cholestrol and sugar diet)

Maintain a healthy weight be on the lookout for rapid weight gains. A rapid weight gain could be a sign or worsening of the condition

incoporate some easy exercise in your daily lifestyles. Talk to your doctor about the level of exercise that should be done. Avoide straining or lifting heavy objects and rest when needed

.Avoide sitting in a hot tub or sauna, or takinglong baths, which will lower your blood pressure

If travelling by air be very cautious extra oxygen may be needed because of the high altitude

Get support for the anxiety and stress of living with pulmonary hypertension. Talk with your healthcare team, or ask for a referral to a counselor. A support group for people living with pulmonary hypertension can be invaluable in learning how to cope with the illness.

Lung Disease Affecting the Blood Vessel–Maintaining Good Health

We will be looking at lung desease atha affect the blood vessels The right side of the heart receives low-oxygen blood from the veins.  It pumps blood into he lungs through the pulmonary arteries . These blood vessels can suffer from disease as well.

  • Pulmonary embolisim
  • Pulmonary hypertension

Pulmonary embolisim other wise called deep vein thrombosis is a blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries in the lungs

in most cases this blockage is caused by blood clots that  travel to the lungs from the legs or from other parts of the body.

These clots blocks the flow to the lungs, this disease can be life threatening ,but with prompt treatment the risk of death is greatly reduce. But by taking measure to prevent blood clots in our les will help to reduce the risk of plumonary embolisim

The symptoms of Pulmonary embolism  can vary greatly, depending on how much of your lung is involved, the size of the clots, and whether you have underlying lung or heart disease.

Some of the common signs that are associated with pulmonary embolosim are

  • Shortness of breath. This symptom typically appears suddenly and always gets worse with exertion.
  • Chest pain. You may feel like you’re having a
    heart attack. The pain may become worse when you breathe deeply  cough, eat, bend or stoop. The pain will get worse with
    exertion but won’t go away when you rest.
  • Cough. The cough may produce bloody or blood-streaked sputum.

Some other signs that can acompany this disease are

  • Leg pain or swelling, or both, usually in the calf
  • Clammy or discolored skin (cyanosis)
  • Fever
  • Excessive sweating
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness

THE CAUSES

Pulmonary embolism occurs when a clump of
material, most often a blood clot, gets wedged into an artery in your
lungs. These blood clots most commonly come from the deep veins of your
legs. This condition is known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

In most cases, multiple clots are involved but not necessarily all at
once. The portions of lung served by each blocked artery are robbed of
blood and may die. This is known as pulmonary infarction. This makes it
more difficult for your lungs to provide oxygen to the rest of your
body.

Occasionally, blockages in the blood vessels are caused by substances other than blood clots, such as:

  • Fat from the marrow of a broken long bone
  • Collagen or other tissue
  • Part of a tumor
  • Air bubbles

Blood clot in leg vein

Although anyone can develop blood clots and subsequent pulmonary embolism, certain factors can increase your risk.

Medical history

We are at a higher risk if we  or any of our family members have had
venous blood clots or pulmonary embolism in the past. This may be due to
inherited disorders that affect blood, making it more prone to clot.

In addition, some medical conditions and treatments put us at risk, such as:

  • Heart disease. Cardiovascular disease, specifically heart failure, makes clot formation more likely.
  • Cancer. Certain cancers — especially
    pancreatic, ovarian and lung cancers, and many cancers with metastasis —
    can increase levels of substances that help blood clot, and
    chemotherapy further increases the risk. Women with a personal or family
    history of breast cancer who are taking tamoxifen or raloxifene also
    are at higher risk of blood clots.
  • Surgery. Surgery is one of the leading causes
    of problem blood clots. For this reason, medication to prevent clots may
    be given before and after major surgery such as joint replacement.

Prolonged immobility

Blood clots are more likely to form during periods of inactivity, such as:

  • Bed rest. Being confined to bed for an extended
    period after surgery, a heart attack, leg fracture, trauma or any
    serious illness makes you more vulnerable to blood clots. When the lower
    extremities are horizontal for long periods, the flow of venous blood
    slows and blood can pool in the legs.
  • Long trips. Sitting in a cramped position
    during lengthy plane or car trips slows blood flow in the legs, which
    contributes to the formation of clots.

Other risk factors

  • Smoking. For reasons that aren’t
    well-understood, tobacco use predisposes some people to blood clot
    formation, especially when combined with other risk factors.
  • Being overweight. Excess weight increases the risk of blood clots — particularly in women who smoke or have high blood pressure.
  • Supplemental estrogen. The estrogen in birth
    control pills and in hormone replacement therapy can increase clotting
    factors in your blood, especially if you smoke or are overweight.
  • Pregnancy. The weight of the baby pressing on
    veins in the pelvis can slow blood return from the legs. Clots are more
    likely to form when blood slows or pools.

Complications

Pulmonary embolism can be
life-threatening. About one-third of people with undiagnosed and
untreated pulmonary embolism don’t survive. When the condition is
diagnosed and treated promptly, however, that number drops dramatically.

Pulmonary embolism can also lead to pulmonary hypertension, a
condition in which the blood pressure in your lungs and in the right
side of the heart is too high. When you have obstructions in the
arteries inside your lungs, your heart must work harder to push blood
through those vessels. This increases the blood pressure within these
vessels and the right side of the heart, which can weaken your heart.

In rare cases, small emboli occur frequently and develop over time,
resulting in chronic pulmonary hypertension, also known as chronic
thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension.

Prevention

Preventing clots in the deep veins in our legs (deep vein thrombosis) will help prevent pulmonary embolism.
For this reason, most hospitals are aggressive about taking measures to
prevent blood clots, including:

  • Blood thinners (anticoagulants). These
    medications are often given to people at risk of clots before and after
    an operation — as well as to people admitted to the hospital with a
    heart attack, stroke or complications of cancer.
  • Compression stockings. Compression stockings
    steadily squeeze your legs, helping your veins and leg muscles move
    blood more efficiently. They offer a safe, simple and inexpensive way to
    keep blood from stagnating during and after general surgery.
  • Leg elevation. Elevating your legs when possible and during the night also can be very effective. Raise the bottom of your bed 4 to 6 inches with blocks or books.
  • Physical activity. Moving as soon as possible
    after surgery can help prevent pulmonary embolism and hasten recovery
    overall. This is one of the main reasons your nurse may push you to get
    up, even on your day of surgery, and walk despite pain at the site of
    your surgical incision.
  • Pneumatic compression. This treatment uses
    thigh-high or calf-high cuffs that automatically inflate with air and
    deflate every few minutes to massage and squeeze the veins in your legs
    and improve blood flow.

Prevention while traveling

The risk of blood clots developing while traveling is low, but
increases as travel increases. If you have risk factors for blood clots
and you’re concerned about traveling, talk with your doctor.

Your doctor might suggest the following to help prevent blood clots during travel:

  • Drink plenty of fluids. Water is the best
    liquid for preventing dehydration, which can contribute to the
    development of blood clots. Avoid alcohol, which contributes to fluid
    loss.
  • Take a break from sitting. Move around the
    airplane cabin once an hour or so. If you’re driving, stop every hour
    and walk around the car a couple of times. Do a few deep knee bends.
  • Fidget in your seat. Flex your ankles every 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Wear support stockings. Your doctor may
    recommend these to help promote circulation and fluid movement in your
    legs. Compression stockings are available in a range of stylish colors
    and textures. There are even devices, called stocking butlers, to help
    you put on the stockings.

Who Should Decide the Fate of YourTerminally Ill Child

We have all heard of the tragic case of 23 months old Alfie Evans. Alfie was born in may of 2016 and December 2016 he was admitted to the  Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool England suffering seizures and has been a patient in the hospital until his death April 28 2018

Alfie was diagnosed with a  degenerative neurological condition, which they have not been able to identify definitively.

Alfie’s parents and the hospital were in complete disagreement in what should happen to Alfie who was in a semi vegetated state for almost a year

The problem between Alfie parents  and the Doctors at Alder Hey children hospital started when the Doctors decided to with draw life support from Alfie as the they deemed it useless as there was no hope to cure Alfie and his death was imminent

The Alder Hey Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust went to the High Court to seek a declaration that continued ventilator support was not in Alfie’s best interest in the circumstance it was not lawful that such treatment be continued

Mr Justice Hayden said doctors could stop providing life support for Alfie against his parents’ wishes, saying the child required “peace, quiet and privacy”.

Of course the parents wanted treatment to be continued and wanted to take Alfie to another hospital in Italy the  Bambino Gesu Hospital in Rome in the hope of prolonging his life.whose Doctors thought that they could perform surgery that would help him to live for a undefined period This petition of the parents was denied by the Alder Hey Children hospital

Alfie’s father believed that his son was improving because he responded tho him ant he wanted every thing tried to save his son

But Michael Mylonas QC, representing the hospital, said: “One of the theproblems of this case is Alfie’s parents look at him and, barring the paraphernalia of breathing and feeding, he’s a sweet, lovely, normal-looking boy who opens his eyes, and will smile. The hospital asserted that any movements by the child were “spontaneous seizures as a result of touching”.

Mr Justice Hayden ruled in favor of hospital bosses and doctors were set to withdraw ventilation on February 23 before his parents decided to take legal action

On  March 20, Alfie’s parents appealed to the Supreme Court where justices refuse to give Alfie’s parents permission to  enter another appeal

Alfie’s parents and their lawyers went to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) after exhausting all legal avenues in the UK.

But three judges ruled the submission “inadmissible”, saying they were unable to find any violation of human rights.

On April 11, Mr Justice Hayden then endorsed an end-of-life care plan  for Alfie. setting a date to switch off life support. This time the parents of Alfie were represented by a group CLC (Christian legal center) but every appeal on behalf Alfi’s parent was denied Alfie father even went to Rome to meet with  Pope Francis  to plead the Pope intervention in the hopes of saving his son but the ppe,s pitition was turned down.

The Italian Government granted citizenship to enable Alfie to travel to Italy without any problem but this effort was dismissed by the British Courts Mr Justice Hayden who stated that “Alfie is a British citizen” who “falls therefore under the

jurisdiction of the High Court”. Even after all denials to their effort to get their son treatment they did stop trying.

Alfie’s parents then launched a further appeal against the order stopping them from taking him to Italy, which was heard on Wednesday afternoon by a panel of three Court of Appeal judges, headed by Sir Andrew McFarlane.

The judges upheld a ruling preventing the 23-month-old from traveling abroad after life support was withdrawn. Finally Alfie died an April 28 2018.   This leaves me to think Who  should have the right to decide what is the right thing for their child.

As a parent I would want to do everything possible for my child. I know when we see our child suffering we sometimes have difficulty in making the right  decisions because we become too emotional but then who is best to make these heart rending decisions.

One of the dilemmas Alfie’s case raised is whether doctors are the right people to determine if withdrawing life-support treatment is in “the best interests” of a terminally ill child.

One of the key arguments presented by his parents was that they should decide what is best for their son

What do you think  Should the government make this decision or may be a family member. let me know your thoughts leave me a comment

Lung disorders Diseases— maintaining good health

Lung Diseases Affecting the Interstitium

The interstitium is the microscopically thin, delicate lining between the lungs’ air sacs (alveoli). Tiny blood vessels run through the interstitium and allow gas exchange between the alveoli and the blood. Various lung diseases affect interstitium:

Interstitial lung disease is a collection of different lung condition affecting the interstitium. They are:-


Sarcoidosis

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Autoimmune disease

Pneumonia and pulmonary edemas can also affect the interstitium

Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that affects multiple organs in the body, but mostly the lungs and lymph glands. In people with sarcoidosis, abnormal masses or nodules consisting of inflamed tissues form in certain organs of the body. These nodules may alter the normal structure and possibly the function of the affected organ(s).

The Symptoms of Sarcoidosis.

The symptoms of sarcoidosis can vary greatly, depending on which organs are involved. Most patients initially complain of a persistent dry cough, fatigue, and shortness of breath. Other symptoms may include Tender reddish bumps or patches on the skin Red and teary eyes or blurred vision.

Swollen and painful joints.

Enlarged and tender lymph glands in the neck, armpits, and groin.

Enlarged lymph glands in the chest and around the lungs.

Hoarse voice.

Pain in the hands, feet, or other bony areas due to the formation of cysts (an abnormal sac-like growth) in bones.

Kidney stone formation.

Enlarged liver.

Development of abnormal or missed heartbeats, inflammation of the covering of the heart or heart failure.

Nervous system effects, including hearing loss, meningitis, seizures, or psychiatric disorders (for example, dementia, depression, psychosis).

In some people, symptoms may begin suddenly and/or severely and subside in a short period of time. Others may have no outward symptoms at all even though organs are affected. Still, others may have symptoms that appear slowly but which last or recur over a long time span.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a serious disease and will have a great effect on your life.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a type of lung disease that results in scarring (fibrosis) of the lungs for an unknown reason. Over time, the scarring gets worse and it becomes hard to take in a deep breath and the lungs cannot take in enough oxygen.

The cause of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is not completely understood. No one knows what causes idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis or why some people get it. “Idiopathic” means of unknown cause. Common risk factors for IPF include:

Genetics (family history):  if more than one member of your family has IPF, the disease is called familial pulmonary fibrosis.

Cigarette smoking: Approximately 75% of people with IPF are current or previous cigarette smokers.

Acid reflux (gastroesophageal reflux disease [GERD]):

Symptoms

Symptoms typically include a gradual onset of shortness of breath and a dry cough. Other changes may include feeling tired and nail clubbing.

There is no known cure for IPF there is some medication that can slow the growth of the disease. The life expectancy is 10 years after being diagnosed and there is also a lung transplant but that is major surgery.  Autoimmune disease

Autoimmune disease

A disease in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells.

In cases of the immune system overactivity, the body attacks and damages its own tissues (autoimmune diseases). Immune deficiency diseases decrease the body’s ability to fight invaders, causing vulnerability to infections.

Common diseases that are considered autoimmune are:-

Rheumatoid arthritis

A chronic inflammatory disorder affecting many joints, including those in the hands and feet.

Lupus

An inflammatory disease caused when the immune system attacks its own tissues.

Multiple sclerosis

A disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of nerves.

Type 1 diabetes

A chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin.

Alopecia areata

Sudden hair loss that starts with one or more circular bald patches that may overlap

Temporal arteritis

Inflammation of blood vessels, called arteries, in and around the scalp

Vasculitis

An inflammation of the blood vessels that causes changes in the blood vessel walls.

Ankylosing spondylitis

Inflammatory arthritis affecting the spine and large joints.

Celiac disease

An immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.

Sjogren’s Syndrome

An immune system disorder characterized by dry eyes and dry mouth.

I have listed a few diseases that are considered autoimmune but there are much more.

So we need to try and prevent getting these diseases by having a healthy lifestyle quit smoking if you are. It seems that 75% of these diseases are caused by smoking.

Have a healthy diet keep away from sugars, pastries a little now and then cut out or down on alcoholic beverages no overindulgence more fruits and vegetables and a little exercise.

I know that sometimes even with the precautions taken  we still get sick but our immune system will be strong enough to fight these diseases

My Time As A Hospice CNA

I worked as a hospice CNA. for thirteen years and during those years I have seen and experience a number of things and I would like to share some of those today.

I loved my job as a hospice CNA. I thought of it a blessed opportunity to be able to try and comfort someone at the end of their life and not only the patients but to their loved ones also I never thought of working in any other area of patient care.

My job includes not only taking care of there daily needs but sometimes I would have to be the counselor a prayer partner a comforter because these people knew there were going to die and some were not prepared and were very afraid.

Sometimes when a couple who have been living together for 40 years and more, and one was dying and leaving their partner and the one that was going to be left was at a lost., as it seems impossible to live without them.

And then there are children dying and leaving their parents, I think this is the hardest situation to deal with, How do you comfort a mother who has lost her child? What can you say to her that will give her peace?

Sometimes you can only hug and hold her while she cries her heart out. As a mother myself, I don’t think anything could comfort me. And I would not want to go through that.

Then there are those patients who are suffering so much and there is nothing you can do. In this situation, I tend to feel helpless.

Taking care of these patients could be heartbreaking and sometimes I had to muster up some strength to keep my emotions in check

There are patient in the final stages of cancer these patients seem to be in the worst pain and nothing seems able to ease the pain and discomfort, sometimes they are in so much pain there is nothing to do but to administer strong medication to assist them to sleep.

Another terrible disease is Lou Gehrig’s disease(ALS) The nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control movement stop functioning. The condition leads to paralysis, and patients eventually cannot breathe or swallow on their own

There was this beautiful young woman married with two daughters ages of about 10 and 8 she had contracted the disease she could not move on her own or talk she could only look at you she could not make her needs to be known

You would have to be wondering if was she in pain was she comfortable there was no facial expression I remember one day I went to check on her and I removed her bed covers to check if she needed changing and I saw the toes on one  her feet were turned up so I knew she  was having a muscle spasm and I thought to my self she was in so much pain and not able to ask for help.

There were so many other cases that were heart-wrenching like a 27-year-old young man died from sclerosis of the liver I was told he had been consuming alcohol from age 12 his parents were devastated

There were people with lung cancer fighting to breathe and we would try everything we knew how and there was just nothing you could but watch then and all this time fighting to keep your emotions in check because you can’t break you have to be strong their family members needed you to be strong

I have left out all the gory details there is so much more but I have been retired now for 5 years and writing this article I can feel the sadness and the feeling of hopelessness again and I am once again trying to keep my emotions in check.

Would you be a hospice nurse? If not then why not and if you would why would you please respond ask questions I will try and answer just leave your comments and questions below.

Thank you so much for reading my post and do stop by again.
