Get Your Lost Erection Back with Sildenafil Citrate 100mg

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a sick and naughty male sexual dysfunction to have.  Because of this condition, it inhibits you from having successful intercourse with your female partner.  This is because without an erection, vaginal penetration is not possible.  Fortunately, although only temporary, you can get your erection back using sildenafil citrate 100mg.  Sildenafil citrate 100mg is very effective in providing you the erection you lost due to erectile dysfunction as it is the generic alternative of Viagra, the most popular and highly sought after ED treatment drug.

Sildenafil citrate 100mg is classified as a PDE5 inhibitor drug because it follows the same mechanism of action of drugs belonging to that class.  What PDE5 inhibitor drugs do is that it selectively focuses on the smooth muscles lining the penis.  This smooth muscle relaxes when you are sexually stimulated to allow blood to enter the cavities within the penis so an erection can be achieved.  Once you are no longer sexually aroused, the smooth muscles then contracts back to squeeze the blood out of the penis so the penis becomes limp again.  This is actually what is great about PDE5 inhibitor drugs like sildenafil citrate 100mg because they provide you with a normal-like erection function.

Going digital? Let the government pay

Don’t miss out on valuable subsidies

As electronic medical records become increasingly commonplace in Canadian doctors’ offices, the old excuses about difficult, unreliable software have largely been proven spurious. But still most physicians have resisted switching entirely to digital. Why? The reasons are no longer functional — modern EMR systems are excellent, safe and easy for even basic computer users — but rather financial: the costs of EMR implementation and maintenance, and the requisite hardware, can easily run into the tens of thousands of dollars. Changing your whole charting process is hard enough. Changing your whole charting process and paying through the nose for the privilege? For a lot of physicians in private practice, that’s asking too much.

A consensus has emerged in the nascent EMR-adoption literature that the cost of setting up an EMR system may be the greatest barrier for many interested doctors. Mercifully, provincial governments have taken note and, over the last three years, many have created substantial subsidy programs to lighten the financial burden.

    Good old "mother" government, eh ! :)

    Apart from the stress that comes with constant , rapid changes that occur in the software/hardware world of technology...... there are the "real life ,in the moment " necessities of information in hand that is fully under your control.

    Apart from what your "directional' plans are for joining the system and the "realtime" EDI ( electronic data interchange ) I would be thinking about the following to keep my " operational" plan running smoothly.

    1. the history and reputation of DR. Lawrence Weed

    He revolutionised the record-keeping, data use/storage , "problem-based" linked to "evidence-based" record keeping since the 1960's.

    He founded this company which brings his intellectual properties into the "tech" age:

    If you want to consider a simple " in-house/personal files complement why not use the " physician one-write " ?

    For years "corrections services" used this for the simplicity of collecting all data related to a problem -based charting perspective (SOAPIER )..... on one page ......and relevant copies automatically taken from their "section" at point of charting for other professionals serving the client
    ( great for neww collaborative patient-centred teams )

    For years these "physician one-write" paper forms were supplied free by the drug companies

    [ they could do that again :)]

    Inter-office treatment plans could easily turn this into your "problem-oriented" record of disease specific /per visit episodes/ per client.

    P.S. I do not know any professional who does/did not have some recording process that backs up dependence upon technology
