Do anesthesiologists administer blood transfusions?
Anesthesiologists administer approximately half the blood transfusions in the United States and are experts in making the risk and benefit assessments needed during a transfusion. Anesthesiologists are committed to the responsible use of the blood supply and to make the best decisions for patients.
How common is heart disease in women in the United States?
According to the American Heart Association, more than one in three female adults has some form of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Beginning in 1984, the number of CVD deaths for females began to exceed those for males. Research shows that women who have heart attacks are more likely to die within a year of the event compared to men, and 64 percent of women who died of sudden cardiac events had no previous symptoms.
Who are audiologists?
Audiologists are hearing specialists who are trained to identify, diagnose, measure and treat hearing disorders or balance problems. They use a variety of devices to measure hearing and the type and extent of hearing loss.
Most states require a license, and the requirements for the license vary. Typically, a doctorate or master's degree in audiology is required. Some audiologists hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A), which requires additional training.
