Introducing the QuiqLiteMed, our newest addition to our family of hands-free LED light products. QuiqLiteMed is the answer for an improved lightweight, easy to use hands-free light source for medical professionals. QuiqLiteMed can be clipped onto a uniform pocket or scrub and can be used as an examining tool the same way as its penlight predecessor without having to hold it in your hand. QuiqLiteMed has a constant On/Off button and adjustable LED arm providing up to 30 lumens of light on demand. QuiqLiteMed's 160° adjustable light arm allows you to adjust the light where it is needed for your perfect lighting angle. QuiqLiteMed is also equipped with a pupil gauge located on the back for easy reference. Doctors Doctors of every type from dentists, general practitioners and surgeons use small portable hand held lights when examining patients as their size makes them convenient to use. It can be used to check areas of the mouth and throat, examine wounds and to assess pupil response. QuiqLiteMed's unique design and features make a very useful tool for this work environment. Nurses For many of the same reasons as doctors, nurses also use lights. As they spend a lot of their time monitoring patients, they tend to use lights to assess the patient's progress rather than as an examining tool used to help diagnosis.

The prospect of entering treatment is overwhelming for anyone facing a diagnosis of cancer. While patients have access to a vast amount of medical information online, this advice is often unreliable or confusing. In Living with Cancer, Drs. Vicki A. Jackson and David P. Ryan have crafted the first step-by-step guide aimed at helping people with this life-defining disease grasp what’s happening to them while coping physically and emotionally with cancer treatment.

Finally, they discuss hospice care and answer questions about continuing treatment and managing the final phase of life.Based on new research and a groundbreaking program in which patients are treated with palliative care―along with the best cancer care―during the course of their illness, this honest and caring book provides the right advice to use at the right time throughout a journey with cancer. It allows a person with cancer to concentrate on living the best life possible, despite an uncertain future.
