Re: o/t view with caution.

If my wife had sent me with my teenage daughter for any form of underwear...my daughter would have been mortified.

Re: Different kind of shock -- cost of ICD replacement

Dick: The argument you are presenting appears to be a straw-man with a dash of ad-hominem. An example of this is when you state; "Only the looniest of ill patients (heart, liver, kidney, cancer, etc) would object to the basic fundamental of Obamacare." So only an insane person would disagree with Ob...

Re: Shock

OzC: That is a good idea and i have been trying to find someone local who has some PTSD experience that can help me. However, one thing I have found is that all of these therapists are expert at anything that will make them a dime. Sorry I am being overly harsh...I have had a couple of less than pro...

Re: Atomic clock interfere with heart monitor?

While it maybe called an Atomic clock, I suspect it is not a real atomic clock. Here is a picture of a Cesium beam clock. Does your atomic clock look like this; http://img.timeinc.net/time/daily/2009/0908/360_atomic_clock_0810.jpg I suspect your new atomic clock is using GPS signals and you are fine...

Re: 2012 NIH Study ICD Impact on Patient Mortality and Morbidity

OzC: Refining data and data collection is really not that hard, it takes planning. If the clearing house was started they will have some sort of data management controls in place. Your question is of value but only if the clearly house was implemented. If there is a clearing house I will go look for...

Re: Different kind of shock -- cost of ICD replacement

Dick: I made no comment regarding the repeal of the new health care law. So I am unsure of your point about repeal in the context of my text. Thanks for supporting my assertion that the new health care law taxes ICDs and other such devices. i don't think I made a claim about the timing of the tax. I...

2012 NIH Study ICD Impact on Patient Mortality and Morbidity

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3459308/pdf/nihms392224.pdf Published in 2012 so this is not cutting edge.

Re: Different kind of shock -- cost of ICD replacement

It is interesting that the new health care law actually taxes ICDs and other such devices. Yet the law provides no basic consumer protections, like minimum standards for safety of these devices. One interesting thing about the new US health care law is that the IRS is the enforcement agency. The tax...

Group hugs, then we will be sharing golf clubs, and then dogs living with cats.
Is that really where you want this to go?
