Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) Heart Institute is one of the first hospitals in Kentucky to receive new technology for mapping electrical systems in the heart.

 

The software, called EnSite Precision, is in its early phase and is available in only 25 centers across the country.

 

“This is truly the latest and greatest in the world of electrophysiology,” said PMC Electrophysiologist Chase Reynolds, MD.  

 

This system is used in ablation procedures for patients with arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythms) and is designed to enable faster and more accurate maps of the heart.

 

The most common arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation (AFib).

 

“AFib affects about 6 to 7 million people in the US at the present time and that number is expected to grow to 15 million by about 2030,” said PMC Electrophysiologist Michael Antimisiaris, MD.

 

Dr. Reynolds said, “This new system is a tool that improves our ability to reach our goal and improve the outcomes for our patients who undergo ablation procedures.”

 

PMC electrophysiologists say their goal is to bring a patient, who has an abnormal heart rhythm, to the electrophysiology lab and when they leave the lab they will have gone through a procedure that prevents that rhythm from occurring at any point in the future.

 

“Certainly everybody would want this new technology but it could not be released to the whole US or the whole world at the same time,” said Dr. Antimisiaris. “They selected a group of hospitals that could produce good results during the initial trials. When they offered it to us, obviously, we accepted it without hesitation.”

 

Dr. Antimisiaris says the procedure uses electrical signals from inside the heart to help identify where the tips of the catheter and other electrodes are located along with a magnetic component that constructs the geometry of the heart in three dimension.

 

“This process gives us a 0.2 mm accuracy,” said Dr. Antimisiaris. “We are talking about the kind of accuracy that gives us a ten-fold improvement.”

 

“The precision is unbelievable,” said Dr. Reynolds. “Before, when we would map these arrhythmias, we were limited to one or two reference points that we could record at the same time. Now, with this new system, there is not realistically a limit to the number of data points we can obtain.  With one extra beat we can do multi-point mapping, which means obtaining electrical activity from every single catheter that is in the heart at that time.”

 

The expected results from the Precision System should improve the accuracy of the procedure as well as reduce procedure time which is better and safer for the patient.

 

For more information about EnSite Precision or to schedule an appointment, contact the PMC Heart and Vascular Institute at 606-218-2201.

The Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH) has raised the influenza (flu) level from regional to widespread.

 

Widespread is the highest level of flu activity and indicates increased flu outbreaks in at least half of the Commonwealth.

 

Flu is a serious, infectious, viral respiratory disease that claims the lives of approximately 23,000 people each year. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 200,000 people are hospitalized each year in the United States from complications of flu.

 

The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends that anyone six months and older get vaccinated against the flu. The vaccine protects against the most common flu strains.

 

The flu vaccine continues to be 40-60 percent effective. “Even if you still get sick after getting your flu shot, you may have a milder version of the infection and a shorter period of illness,” said Dr. Fadi Al Akhrass, medical director of infection control at Pikeville Medical Center (PMC).

 

“If you haven’t had your flu vaccination, we encourage you to get one as soon as possible,” added Dr. Al Akhrass. “It is not too late.”

 

According to Dr. Al Akhrass, it is especially important for certain groups of people to be vaccinated because they are at high risk of having serious flu-related complications or because they live with or care for someone at high risk for developing flu-related complications.

 

These groups include:

 

•Children younger than five years, but especially children younger than two years 

 

•Pregnant women

 

•People 65 and older

 

•People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions

 

•Residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities

 

Healthcare workers

 

Flu shots are available at any of Pikeville Medical Center’s family practice clinics.

 

Signs and symptoms of flu are fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea (more common in children). Complications of flu include bacterial pneumonia, ear infections, sinus infections, dehydration and worsening of chronic medical conditions such as congestive heart failure, diabetes and asthma.

 

According to the CDC, adults with flu can infect others beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to five days after becoming sick.

 

An accurate diagnosis of flu is very important because it is treatable with antiviral medications such as Tamiflu. “These types of medications work best when taken within the first forty-eight hours of illness,” explained Dr. Al Akhrass. “They are very effective in cutting down the severity of symptoms and shortening the duration of illness.”

 

The flu virus is spread through airborne droplets emitted by coughing and sneezing. People get sick from flu by touching objects or surfaces contaminated with the virus.

 

“The flu is a very contagious illness,” said Dr. Al Akhrass. “If you do get sick, you have to stay home and get plenty of rest and plenty of fluids.”

 

Those with flu should not come in contact with other people until they are free of fever for 24 hours.

 

“Hand hygiene is also extremely important in minimizing the spread of flu,” said Dr. Al Akhrass. “Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use alcohol based hand gel if you don’t have access to a sink.”

 

The Kentucky DPH urges people to practice good health and hygiene habits to prevent the spread of flu at home, work and school.  Some viruses and bacteria can live two hours or longer on surfaces like cafeteria tables, doorknobs and desktops.

 

Remember to use a tissue when coughing and sneezing. Teach children to practice healthy hygiene habits at school to limit the spread of germs.

 

While flu is a serious viral disease, it is also a preventable one. The best method of prevention is to get a flu vaccination every year.

 

PMC is doing its part by requiring all employees to get vaccinated against the flu. This measure protects the patients and employees from exposure to this life threatening illness.

 

For more information about flu, visit www.cdc.gov/flu. To make an appointment with any of PMC’s family practice physicians, call 606-218-2213.

PIKEVILLE — The construction of Dueling Barrels has made great progress despite weather setbacks.

 

Workers have completed the foundation and basement, and hope to have the building completed by late summer. This will be followed by four to five months of process engineering to install the brewing and distilling system.

 

The $10 million project at 745 Hambley Blvd. in downtown Pikeville next to the Jenny Wiley Theatre is planned to represent a sophisticated moonshine distillery, with a visitor’s center.

 

The visitor experience will celebrate Appalachian history and the role of moonshine in the region’s culture.

 

The facility will produce Dueling Barrels Bourbon, Dueling Barrels Moonshine and Pikeville Ale. While Dueling Barrels will be part of the Alltech Beverage Division, its manufacturing and production will be different from that of Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Co. in Lexington.

 

Dueling Barrels will be able to brew and distill approximately 45,000 barrels. Two new beers, Pikeville Ale and Pikeville Porter, will be available in the Dueling Barrels facility.

 

Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company is a unique stop on the world-famous Kentucky Bourbon Trail, and one of only a handful of joint brewing and distilling operations in the world. Alltech founder and president Dr. Pearse Lyons, Irish biochemist and entrepreneur, acquired the 200-year-old Lexington Brewing Company in 1999.

 

Alltech is a leading global biotechnology company whose mission is to improve the health and performance of people, animals and plants through natural and scientific innovation.

It seems like just yesterday I was introduced to a young lady who was making an immediate impact on the basketball court at small Jenkins High School in Letcher County.

 

I’ve had the opportunity over the past 42-plus years to watch some very talented players display their talents on all levels.

 

I knew this young lady was special, and special she was then and now.

 

Whitney Creech, now a freshman at Western Kentucky University, finished her high school career as Kentucky’s all-time leading scorer with 5,527 points.

 

She just finished third in the balloting for Kentucky Sports Figure of the Year, won by Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, who beat out University of Kentucky’s Tyler Ulis.

 

Historian John Carpenter recently informed me that she is about to have her No. 5 jersey placed into the Naismith Hall of Fame. The Hall is located in Springfield, Mass. Carpenter said Creech becomes the first-known player in state history to receive such an honor.

 

University of Kentucky head coach John Calipari and former player Louie Dampier were inducted as part of the 2015 class.

 

Janet Creech, Whitney’s mother, said a time and date for the induction has not been finalized.

 

Her all-time leading numbers passed Highlands’ Jaime Walz, who finished her career with 4,948 and was the state’s all-time leading scorer since 1996.

 

Her scoring touch may never be matched again. Only time will tell.

 

Congrats, Whitney!

 

 

 

Are Floyd Central players falling behind?

 

The Floyd County Board of Education doesn’t plan to announce the new head football coach at Floyd Central High School until sometime in April.

 

Meanwhile, players who return from both Allen Central and South Floyd are being placed behind the eight ball just months before the 2017 season.

 

Football is a year-round event when it comes to working out in the weight room and off-season conditioning.

 

I’ve heard from a number of Floyd County residents who are concerned their children will fall behind with the announcement being held off for whatever reason.

 

I hope and believe Floyd County Superintendent Dr. Henry Webb and other members of the board act quickly.

 

The students from both schools deserve an equal chance.

 

 

 

No clear-cut favorite

 

With the high school basketball season moving into the month of February I think many of those of us who cover the game are not sold on a clear-cut favorite.

 

The 57th District currently has Johnson Central, Magoffin County and Sheldon Clark in the mix. I think you can toss on three of them in a hat come post-season time.

 

The 58th District has South Floyd front and center. Allen Central, which has played at difficult schedule, is a challenge for the Raiders. You also can’t count out Prestonsburg when early March rolls around.

 

The 59th District is wide open as well. Pikeville, East Ridge and Shelby Valley are all capable of advancing. I’m not sold on two teams just yet.

 

Phelps is making the 60th District field a challenge for me. Lawrence County, Pike Central and Belfry are the front-runners but I’m not sold that the Hornets can’t shake things up.

 

Until next time……
