Neonatal webcams welcome the ever-present parents (ama-assn.org)
While transferring critically ill newborns from a nearby medical center to his hospital’s larger neonatal intensive care unit, neonatologist Daniel Saesim, MD, realized how difficult it is for new mothers to be separated from their babies. Being apart even for a short time is painful for parents and harmful to bonding, said Dr. Saesim, associate medical director at Parkview Community Hospital in Riverside, Calif. So when Dr. Saesim noticed that a neighboring hospital had installed cameras in its NICU that allowed parents to watch babies from afar, he approached Parkview with the idea.  more... 4/16/2012

Telemedicine becoming the new house call (ajc.com)
Travis Proctor logged onto his computer, turned on his new webcam and clicked his mouse. Within seconds, the 42-year-old father of three was face to face with Dr. Kelvin Burton, his primary care physician. Just months ago, Proctor would have had to drive for nearly an hour round-trip from his home in Powder Springs to Burton’s Douglasville family care practice just for a checkup. Not anymore. Now in what amounts to a 21st century house call, Burton and other doctors are seeing their patients via teleconferencing on personal computers, iPads and, if they have the app, iPhones. From the convenience of home, patients can receive care for minor illnesses or receive a diagnosis for something as complicated as a heart condition.  more... 4/10/2012

On a recent morning at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, two Alaskan brown bears prowled their grassy enclosed habitat, nuzzled each other for a moment, then sunned upon some rocks — cute, natural actions any visiting patron might watch.
