Learn about Erectile Dysfunction and Sildenafil Citrate Online

Have you ever wondered how sildenafil acts within your body to help you solve your problems with erectile dysfunction?  Thanks to the instant availability of the Internet and computer devices, you will now be able to learn about ED and sildenafil citrate online right at your fingertips.

If you are curious as to how PDE5 inhibitors such as sildenafil work inside your body, then you can browse on search engines by simply typing in the search box the words sildenafil citrate online.  When you read about the mechanics of the action of sildenafil citrate online, you will learn that it helps protect the enzyme cGMP (short for cyclic guanosine monophosphate) from being degraded by the cGMP-specific PDE5 (short for phosphodiesterase type 5 enzyme) which are evidently located in the penile corpus cavernosum of men.  The free radical NO (short for nitric oxide) found in the penile corpus cavernosum adheres itself to what are called the guanylate cyclase receptors, which then results to the occurrence of elevated amounts of cGMP, thereby leading to the vasodilation or relaxation of the smooth muscles of the inner lining cushions of the helicine arteries (tendril-like arteries of the penis importantly involved in the process of its erection).  Once the smooth muscles relax, it will result to vasodilation and therefore there will be an increased supply of blood flowing into the penile spongy tissue, and the end result would be a successful penile erection.

Additionally, what you would also learn about sildenafil citrate online is that its special molecular makeup is somewhat similar to cGMP (located in the penile corpus cavernosum as well) and functions as an aggressive binding element of PDE5 in the penile corpus cavernosum, which results to more concentrations of cGMP and even better occurrences of erections. Avery important information that men will learn through reading about sildenafil citrate online is that sildenafil will be rendered useless without the introduction of one or more sexual stimuli, since only a sexual stimulus will be the only factor that can initiate the activation of the nitric oxide and cGMP inside a man’s body.

What's in the news: Sep. 24 -- New Brunswick and MDs patch things up

MDs vs. NB conflict at at end?
New Brunswick and its doctors have reached an agreement in principle on how to deal with the raise that was offered by the government and then rescinded when it became apparent that the recession would cause revenues to fall short of where they were predicted to be. The medical association's announcement, however, did not make clear whether the new agreement in principle would reinstate the raises or would grant the government some of its cuts.

Extra H1N1-flu pay for doctors?
Physicians in several provinces -- Alberta , Saskatchewan , and others as well -- are asking governments to pay them extra for treating H1N1 flu patients. The BC Medical Association is asking for a new fee for fielding phone calls from patients concerned they may have the flu. Manitoba and PEI are reportedly not considering any new payments for the H1N1 pandemic. Nova Scotia's physicians are working on a plan with the provincial government to insure them against potential income losses as a result of the pandemic.

Docs do drugs to stay awake
Ever wonder how doctors manage to stay awake and alert enough on emergency-department night shifts to be able to respond at a moment's notice and be ready to make life-or-death decisions? Toronto emergency physician Brian Goldman, the host of CBC Radio's White Coat, Black Art confesses to using a drug called modafinil to keep himself alert, just as other doctors do. "Frankly, my colleagues have been far too silent about how difficult they find it to stay awake and alert," he wrote recently. "In being silent, they may have given you the erroneous impression that the problem is being taken care of, and that it's nothing you need to worry about." Listen to an MP3 of the September 12 episode here or listen to Dr Goldman's discussion with a colleague about their drug use here.

"A joke": A progressive's view of US health reform

If you've somehow managed to avoid hearing the news about what's been going on lately with the US effort to reform the country's health-insurance and healthcare systems, an impassioned by Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi provides a good look at the progressive perspective on recent events.

We might look back on this summer someday and think of it as the moment when our government lost us for good. It was that bad. [...]

All that's left of health care reform is a collection of piece-of-shit, weakling proposals that are preposterously expensive and contain almost nothing meaningful — and that set of proposals, meanwhile, is being negotiated down even further by the endlessly negating Group of Six. It is a fight to the finish now between Really Bad and Even Worse. And it's virtually guaranteed to sour the public on reform efforts for years to come. [...]

It's a joke, the whole thing, a parody of Solomonic governance. By the time all the various bills are combined, health care will be a baby not split in half but in fourths and eighths and fractions of eighths.
It's really worth taking the time to . And keep in mind that Mr Taibbi's article came out a few weeks ago, before Senator Max Baucus's Group of Six decided to altogether eliminate the public option from its .

Maximize your practice's revenue

Forget trying to scale back your overhead — focus on your income

A south-central Ontario group practice did some reorganizing and realized they had an 800-square-foot surplus of office space. They’d already committed to a mortgage on the building, and finding a new doctor to join their group was proving difficult. What to do?

The answer, provided by Practice Solutions consultant Jim Sweeney, was to rent out the surplus office space to other health professionals — in this case, a team of physiotherapists. “This was a win-win opportunity,” says Sweeney, a 37-year veteran of practice management consulting. The group practice got rid of the drag on their finances, while the physiotherapists got access to an office that was already set up for patients.

Renting out extra office space (or even your own office space during hours it goes unused) to ancillary medical services providers or to other doctors, is one of the most effective ways to maximize your practice’s revenue, says Sweeney.

For most physicians, expenses are already as low as they can reasonably go. Unless your staffers are earning outrageous salaries or your waiting room is so lavish that patients just come in to relax, you probably don’t have much fat to trim. That’s why if you want to offset your overhead you’ll have to look at maximizing your revenue, either via new sources (like renting out unused office space) or through existing channels. The most fruitful thing you can do with your existing revenue stream, says Sweeney, is to optimize your billing.
