Hunterdon Medical Center Needs Blood Donors
     Did you know that you can save three lives by donating one unit of blood? This year, patients at Hunterdon Medical Center will use over 2,000 units of blood and blood products. Many people do not realize how important it is to donate blood unless you or loved one is in need. There is no substitute for blood. We need donors to replenish our supply. During this holiday season of giving, please consider helping your community by scheduling an appointment to donate blood at Hunterdon Medical Center.
     To be eligible to donate blood a person must be at least 17 years of age, be in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds. "We are looking for donors of all blood types," stated Cathy Conroy, Blood Donor Recruiter at the Hunterdon Medical Center. Conroy said, "Our donors are all special people who give blood only to help others in need. It isn’t everyday you can save someone’s life. Most of us can give this gift and keep giving it, regularly."
     The Hunterdon Medical Center Blood Bank is located on the 3rd Floor of the hospital. To schedule an appointment to donate blood call Hunterdon Medical Center’s Blood Donor Recruiter at (908) 788–6405.

Bronchiolitis - A Common Illness in Young Children
By Mitchell Clarin, M.D.
Medical Director, Hunterdon Pediatric Associates

     Bronchiolitis is a respiratory illness that is caused by a viral infection. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the most common cause. The infection causes swelling and mucus buildup in the smallest airways of the lungs. Bronchiolitis is typically seen in infants and children up to two years of age. RSV is very contagious and is spread by coming in close contact with an infected child who is sneezing and coughing or by touching an object touched by the sick child.
     Some children have only mild symptoms, but others will start with mild cold symptoms for 2 to 3 days and then progress to having cough, wheezing, low-grade fever (less than 101 degrees F) and sometimes difficulty breathing. Since bronchiolitis is caused by a virus, antibiotics are not helpful. In fact, there seems to be no good treatment for the illness. For many years, albuterol, which is a medicine given by inhalation, has been used to help with children who are wheezing and having difficulty breathing. Unfortunately it has been found that for most children, it does not help with wheezing associated with bronchiolitis and the American Academy of Pediatrics is no longer recommending its routine use.
     Treatment is supportive. The illness will resolve on its own. You should encourage your child to drink plenty of fluids. Babies that are having difficulty feeding can be offered smaller more frequent breast or formula feeds. Saline drops for the nose (available at pharmacies) can be used to help thin nasal mucus and make it easier for the child to breathe through his nose. Infants under 6 months can also have their noses suctioned with a bulb syringe to help them breathe more easily. Cough and cold medications are no longer recommended for young children. Breathing often gets better by the third day and symptoms are overall improved in a week. Rarely, pneumonia or severe breathing difficulty will develop. These children will be treated in the hospital with oxygen and intravenous (IV) fluids.
     Some children who have had bronchiolitis will have future problems with wheezing or asthma
     Call your health care provider or go to the emergency room if your child has:
     Blue tint around the mouth or fingers and toes
     Poor feeding with decreased urine output (less than 3 wet diapers in 24 hours)
     Rapid breathing
     Flaring of nostrils or chest retractions (muscles around ribs sink in during breathing)
     Your child just doesn’t look right to you
Dr. Clarin is the Medical Director for Hunterdon Pediatric Associates. Hunterdon Pediatrics has two offices in Flemington, an office in Clinton and Whitehouse Station.

Hunterdon County Polytech
Animal Technologies Student-Run K9 Fundraiser

     Veronica Lees, a student from the Animal Technologies Equine/Large Animal Program, is organizing the fundraiser, Polytech Project K9 - a holiday supply drive for our K-9 units (dogs and handlers) deployed overseas.
     Veronica is working with the US War Dog Association, a nonprofit organization of former and current US Military Dog Handlers and supporting members committed to promoting the history of the Military Service Dogs. She was inspired by her love of animals to raise community awareness about these military units and to provide them with this well earned and much needed help. After high school, Veronica aspires to major in Animal Science and enlist in the Air Force Academy to serve as a K-9 Officer.
     Donation boxes will be placed at area high schools and local businesses to collect dog supplies such as warming mats, medium and large k9 boots, collapsible bowls, rope chews, beds, and treats. For the soldiers, donations can include razors, hair products, eye drops, hand sanitizer, soap, and travel size tissues. Veronica is also looking for donations to help support the shipping costs to Iraq and Afghanistan, which are approximately $1.00 per pound.
     For individuals and local businesses interested in donating products, placing a donation box at your location, or to assist with the overseas shipping, please contact tromanczak@hcpolytech.org.
     The Equine/Large Animal Program provides students with the professional and technical skills required? to effectively take care of and manage large animal species. Students will take advantage of our unique animal communities and visit local farming businesses including equine, dairy, beef, alpacas, llamas, sheep and buffalo to gain hands-on training and knowledge of working farm operations to supplement classroom learning.

Just For Fun/Things To Do
In the spirit of giving back to the community, the Milford Merchants Association has joined hands with Meals on Wheels to assist with their program of providing meals for the elderly and homebound.
     A major concern to Meals on Wheels is the possibility of inclement weather preventing their volunteer drivers from delivering the meals. To overcome this, the program has developed the concept of “Blizzard Bags.” These are bags with some basic foodstuffs to tide over the program’s recipients in emergencies.
     Meals on Wheels needs donations of some specific items to fill these bags, and the Milford Merchants Association is sponsoring a collection drive for that purpose. The drive is dovetailing with the Association’s upcoming Christmas in Milford celebration. Collection boxes will be at the Milford Library, Pipolo’s Pizza and Mystique. The requested items are: 4 oz unsweetened apple juice boxes; 8 oz Parmelat milk; 3 oz flip-top water-packed tuna; 8 oz canned green beans; and 1.5 oz boxes of raisins.
     The collection boxes will be available through Christmas in Milford on Friday, December 12.
     For additional information, please contact Melissa Harrison at 908-995-4854.

As part of Milford's Christmas in Milford celebration, the 6th Annual Humbug to Hunger reading of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol by River Union Stage will benefit food pantries in Frenchtown and Milford. The performance will take place in the sanctuary of Milford Presbyterian Church on December 12 at 7:30 pm.  Admission is a non-perishable food item.  Audiences will be offered a discounted meal at the Ship Inn following the hour-long performance.  The performance is co-sponsored by ShopRite of Hunterdon County and the Delaware River Mill Society.

Continuing to expand on their upcoming annual Christmas in Milford celebration, the Milford Merchants Association is holding a Christmas House Decorating Contest this year. Open to the residents of Milford Borough, the contest will judge the exterior decors in a nighttime setting. The prizes, gift certificates at various local restaurants, will be awarded for first, second and third place.
Registration forms are available at Bowker’s Pharmacy, Mystique and This & That on the Corner, all located on Bridge Street. The forms can be returned to those same locations; deadline for entry is Wednesday, December 10.
The judging will commence at 6:00 pm on Thursday, December 11; winners will be announced at the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on Friday the 12th.
For additional information, please contact Melissa Harrison at 908-995-4854.
