The Signs and Symptoms of Internal Bleeding

Internal bleeding is one of the most life-threatening complications of motor vehicle collisions. The body relies on blood to carry oxygen and nutrients to the various organs and tissues. While most people are familiar with the importance of stopping external bleeding from scrapes, cuts, and lacerations, internal bleeding is just as deadly.

Woman Settles Lawsuit with Sephora

Makeup giant Sephora has recently settled a lawsuit with a Glendale woman who claimed she contracted an oral herpes infection from a lipstick sample.

The lawsuit stated that she did not have cold sores or herpes before visiting the store to try on the lipstick sample.

Fisher-Price Sleeper Linked to Infant Deaths

Recently, information that was published by Consumer Reports showed that the popular Rock’n Play Sleeper from Fisher-Price has been linked to more than 30 deaths in babies and infants. The popular toy is designed to create a gentle rocking motion to help put babies to sleep. While it can be a challenge for parents to get their children to sleep continuously, it is important for all infants to be in a safe position while going to sleep. A proper sleep position is important for reducing the potential for SIDS, which is called Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Campaigns that have been run by the American Academy of Pediatrics over the past few decades have reduced the rate of SIDS deaths. Unfortunately, the Fisher-Price Rock’n Play has thrust SIDS back into the spotlight once again.
