Mediaplanet Launches “Women’s Pelvic Health” Campaign

San Francisco, California (PRWEB) March 28, 2014

Mediaplanet announces the launch of Womens Pelvic Health, a cross-platform campaign distributed this weekend as a 12-page print publication within the LA Times on Saturday March 29th, and digitally across a network of online platforms, reaching over 3 million readers.

Womens Pelvic Health aims to shed light on womens urological health, breaking down the taboo nature of the topic in order to empower women to seek out information and resources to better their lives, and to ultimately end their silent suffering. It succeeds in uniting the organizations, companies, thought leaders and most importantly the women affected by womens pelvic health issues. Partners include the American Urological Association, Interstitial Cystitis Association, Pelvic Organ Prolapse Association, the National Vulvodynia Association, International Pelvic Pain Society, American Physical Therapy Association and many more.

Urological diseases impact more than 10 million women in the United States today. Its time to shift the urological health conversation to focus more on female patients. Many women believe there is nothing they can do to fix their problems, states Pramod C. Sogani, MD, President of the American Urological Association, within the campaign foreword. As a result, they never tell their healthcare providers about their symptoms- problems like endless trips to the ladies room, issues with leaking when sneezing or exercising, urinary pain, or pelvic pressure and discomfort.

By targeting a predominantly female audience within the LA Times and across the country, the campaign aims to inspire readers to take action, introducing them to key topics such as:

Request A Test Offers New Blood and Urine Ritalin Testing

Brecksville, OH (PRWEB) June 19, 2014

Request A Test, a leading national provider of direct to consumer lab testing, has added new blood and urine tests for Ritalin to their testing menu. Ritalin is a prescription drug which can be beneficial when taken correctly but is frequently abused. Testing for Ritalin can help determine if a person’s prescription dosage is appropriate or be used as a screening to detect Ritalin abuse. Request A Test now offers Ritalin testing that can be ordered by anyone without the need to schedule a doctor’s appointment or get approval from an insurance company. Customers can choose from a selection of 100′s of other drug or general health testing as well. With affordable pricing and 1000′s of lab locations across the country, Request A Test makes it easy to get the lab testing you need whenever you need it.

Ritalin is a common brand name for Methylphenidate, a nervous system stimulant which can be used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and adults. Prescription Ritalin use has increased significantly in the United States in recent years as has the use of Ritalin as a recreational drug. When taken properly, Ritalin can aid a person’s ability to concentrate or focus. Abusers of Ritalin often inject or inhale the drug to produce a euphoric high. Long term effects of Ritalin abuse are similar to those of amphetamines. Users may experience sleeplessness, anxiety and extreme paranoia as well as developing a physical or psychological dependence.

Blood testing for Ritalin is typically done to help determine if a person who is taking Ritalin for therapeutic reasons is being prescribed the proper dosage. The ideal time to have blood drawn is 1-2 hours after a dose is taken. This allows time for the Ritalin blood levels to peak. Measuring this level can help a person work with their doctor to determine if their dosage needs to be adjusted. Blood testing is not typically effective as a screening when someone is suspected of abusing Ritalin as it remains in the body for a very short period of time. Urine testing can typically detect Ritalin use for several days after it is taken although the detection time may vary from one person to the next based on a number of factors including how much of the drug was taken. This type of test is more commonly used when someone is suspected of taking Ritalin recreationally without a prescription. Both urine and blood testing provide quantitative results for the level of the drug detected in a person’s specimen.

Request A Test continues to update their selection of available tests to better serve the needs of their customers. Customers can see more information about the newly added Ritalin lab tests by going to the Drug Testing menu on Request A Test’s website. To order a test, or for more information about any the services provided by Request A Test, just go to or call 1-888-732-2348 to speak to a representative.

About Request A Test

Request A Test is a national lab testing service operating on the edict that knowledge is power. Dedicated to providing outstanding customer service, same-day testing, no hidden fees and an informative, easy to use website, Request A Test is partnered with two of the largest certified laboratories in the country to ensure clients receive affordable and accurate information in a high quality, professional setting.

Four Allegheny Health Network Hospitals Named High Performers by U.S. News

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) July 23, 2014

Four hospitals affiliated with the Allegheny Health Network have been lauded in the latest ranking of the countrys best hospitals by U.S. News and World Report. Released online today and slated for publication in August, the U.S. News 2014-2015 Best Hospitals Guide recognizes Allegheny General Hospital (AGH), Forbes Hospital, Saint Vincent Hospital and West Penn Hospital as high performing medical centers across multiple clinical specialties.

There is no higher priority at Allegheny Health Network than the quality and safety of the care that we provide to our patients, and we are extremely proud of our physicians, nurses and support staff for the outstanding skill and dedication they bring to the bedside and into our physician offices every day to help us fulfill that promise, said Tony Farah, MD, Allegheny Health Networks chief medical officer.

Just 752 of the nations roughly 5,000 hospitals earn U.S. News designation as a high performing medical center in the 2014-15 report.

AGH this year is recognized by U.S. News as a top performer in 10 clinical specialties, including orthopaedic surgery, gastroenterology & GI surgery, cancer, diabetes & endocrinology, cardiology & cardiac surgery, gynecology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology and urology.

West Penn Hospital is named a high performer in cancer, geriatrics, gynecology, nephrology, neurology & neurosurgery and urology.

Forbes Hospital in Monroeville is ranked as high-performing in cancer, gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, neurology & neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, pulmonology and urology.

Saint Vincent Hospital, Erie PA, is designated as a high performer in gastroenterology & GI surgery, geriatrics, nephrology, neurology & neurosurgery and pulmonology.

The Best Hospitals rankings are intended to help patients with life-threatening or rare conditions identify hospitals that excel in treating the most difficult cases. Hospitals are ranked nationally in 16 specialties.

The rankings are based on a combination of objective clinical information gleaned from Medicare outcomes data and the annual American Hospital Association Survey – including patient mortality rates, patient safety scores, nurse-to-patient ratio, procedure volumes and technological capabilities – and a hospitals reputation score in each category as determined by a random, national survey of medical specialists across the country.

U.S. News made several changes to the Best Hospitals rankings methodology this year, including adding new data and greater emphasis on patient safety. Patient safety metrics now account for 10 percent of each hospitals overall score, in most specialties twice as much as in past years.

The role of hospital reputation diminished by 5 percentage points this year.

U.S. News strives to provide patients and their families with the most comprehensive data available on hospitals, said Avery Comarow, U.S. News health rankings editor. With an estimated 400,000 deaths occurring in hospitals each year from medical errors, measuring safety performance is critical to understanding how well a hospital cares for its patients.

The research organization RTI International, in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, conducted the physician survey and produced the Best Hospitals methodology and national rankings under contract with U.S. News.

Risk-adjusted survival rates, adequacy of nurse staffing and patient volume are among the array of data points on each ranked hospital that are freely available at

The complete U.S News hospital rankings and methodology are available at
