Episode 18: Anaphylaxis, Newborn Screening, Circumcision, Babyproofing your Home, and Medical Trivia
Dr. Matt Yuknis and Dr. Laura Thieme are our guest doctors for this episode, and they brought some great information to the program. In health news, we discuss a new comercial on the air which warns families against the dangers of anaphylaxis, but what is anaphylaxis and who is at risk? Dr. Matt has the answers. Next, Dr. Thieme discusses circumcision. It's a personal decision, but Dr. Thieme discusses what it is, and some of the pros and cons. In parenting tips, we discuss how to babyproof a home for a crawling infant, and finally Dr. Matt discusses the newborn screen that every baby has done within the first few days of life. We also have the answer to last month's medical trivia question which was "What is the longest recorded attack of hiccups?"
