When holiday shopping, it is important to remember what type of toys you buy for children. It is important to follow warning and age labels when purchasing gifts, as some toys can be a choking hazard.

If you suspect your child may have swallowed a toy or part of a toy, be on the lookout for:
- Difficulty breathing
- Audible noises when the child is breathing
- Blueness around the mouth and lips

If you notice any of these signs, call 911 immediately or perform the Heimlich Maneuver if you know how to perform that safely.

With the holiday season approaching, some gifts given to children might not be safe for them to play with.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. Mario Montalvo, DO, a pulmonary critical care physician, explains that lung cancer is a silent disease, and most people do not know they have it until it is too late.

Dr. Montalvo recommends that if you are over the age of 50 and have a history of smoking, you should consult with your doctor about lung cancer screenings.

Meet Andrew Fontaine, MD, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in spine surgery. For his patients with back or neck problems, Dr. Fontaine's philosophy is to exhaust every nonoperative management tool possible before suggesting a surgical solution.

When surgery is the best option, Dr. Fontaine uses minimally invasive techniques and smaller incisions so people can heal as quickly as possible and get back to their everyday routines. "The opportunity to be able to provide that to somebody is a great gift and I feel more than privileged to be a part of this field."

Stay a breath ahead of lung cancer!

Current or former smokers, ages 50 to 80, who have smoked a pack a day for 20 years, or two packs a day for 10 years are eligible to get a low-dose CT scan.

The low-dose CT scan is noninvasive, painless, uses less radiation, and takes less than 30 seconds. It produces a 3D scan of your lungs which can reveal possible warning signs of lung cancer.

Lung cancer is very treatable if caught early. Learn more here: https://bit.ly/3u6gkHn

Introducing the OB Hospitalist team!

OB hospitalists care for pregnant women while they're in the hospital and their obstetrician isn't available. Stationed in the hospital 24/7, these highly skilled clinicians do not replace the care patients receive from their regular OB/GYN provider. Instead, they serve as an extension of the patient's regular OB provider and the high-quality care that a doctor or nurse-midwife provides.
