Oh my Heart!

With a new little one, the tests, forms and information are abundant. Family Practice with Obstetrics Physician Dr. Shawn Richmond knows this all too well! One test that all of his little patients receive is a pulse oximetry to measure the amount of oxygen in the blood. Sounds big but it’s actually quite small. The test uses little sticky monitors (think of a band-aid), that are applied to a baby’s foot and hand.

Medicare Seminar Moved

Due to great community response, the “Welcome to Medicare” seminar, scheduled Aug. 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, has been moved from Mahaska Health Partnership’s campus to the Mahaska County ISU Extension Office, 212 North I Street in Oskaloosa.

“With more than 70 people registered, the space on MHP’s campus was getting pretty tight, so we are very happy that the Extension Office was available,” said Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) Volunteer Counselor JoAnn Schefers.

“Registration for the event is now closed, and people who registered are being contacted by phone, but we want to make sure the word gets out.”
