Every Patient Tells Their Story, But Are We Listening?
AHEC
Storytelling is an excellent way to learn. In fact, it's probably the best way to learn. Each patient that comes for medical treatment has their story of signs, symptoms, and circumstances. But often and for certain, when their story is reduced to medical terms, it loses the significance. It is obvious that we are not listening.

A Football Life
AHEC
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand. — Vince Lombardi

Commitment to a goal or passion is something to be admired but not everyone perseveres to see their passion through to fruition. However, that's not the case for a former MEDRelief Staffing employee and longtime friend, Frank Anthony. Frank is 35 years old and married with 2 beautiful children ages 7 and 2. With as busy as his life can be with family and work he still finds time to dedicate to his passion of football.

In the summer of 2017 Frank was selected to play for Team USA in the Cajun Bowl held in New Orleans, LA on July 22, 2017. Team USA faced the APDFL Blazers, which is a development team for NFL and CFL teams. Team USA won 39-27 and because of his success Frank was invited to play again for Team USA at the Cancun Maya Bowl at Universidad Anahuac in Cancun, Mexico in December 2017. In the Cancun Bowl Team USA won 19-6.

Frank began his professional career in healthcare in 2001 working through MEDRelief Staffing where he was placed at St. Joseph's Hospital and Texas Children's Hospital in patient transport. In 2004 he began his career with M.D. Anderson where he started in patient transportation and with his dedication and perseverance he has transitioned into his current role in the division of nursing assisting with payroll.

Advanced Health Education Center and MEDRelief Staffing along with several others proudly sponsored Frank's participation in the 2017 Maya Cancun Bowl.

Ultrasound Tip of the Month
AHEC
Ultrasound has been used to place internal jugular (IJ) lines for many years now, and when done right, it has been shown to be helpful in reducing complication rates, number of attempts, and the amount of time needed for successful line placement. Studies comparing ultrasound to visualize and guide central line placement against a landmark approach reported more accuracy (100% vs 87.5%), decreased access time and attempts and a decreased incidence of complications. An infraclavicular approach must be used to move away from the shadow produced by the clavicle. This is achieved by moving the transducer lateral to the genu of the clavicle.
