We use this non-GAAP financial information to evaluate our ongoing operations, as a component in determining employee bonus compensation, and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance. However, non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP.

In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly-titled non-GAAP measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance. A reconciliation is provided below for each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Gross MarginAdjusted Gross Profit is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as revenue less cost of revenue, excluding depreciation and amortization and excluding (i) stock-based compensation and (ii) post-acquisition restructuring costs (none during periods presented). We define Adjusted Gross Margin as our Adjusted Gross Profit divided by our revenue.

We believe Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Gross Margin are useful to investors as they eliminate the impact of certain non-cash expenses and allow a direct comparison of these measures between periods without the impact of non-cash expenses and certain other non-recurring operating expenses. The following is a reconciliation of revenue, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, to Adjusted Gross Profit, for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019. Three Months Ended September 30, 2020 (in thousands, except percentages) Technology Professional Services Total Revenue $ 27,964 $ 19,227 $ 47,191 Cost of revenue, excluding depreciation and amortization (9,045 ) (15,307 ) (24,352 ) Gross profit, excluding depreciation and amortization 18,919 3,920 22,839 Add.

Stock-based compensation 64 306 370 Adjusted Gross Profit $ 14,484 $ 6,677 $ 21,161 Gross margin, excluding depreciation and amortization 68 % 35 % 53 % Adjusted Gross Margin 68 % 37 % 54 % Adjusted EBITDAAdjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net loss adjusted for (i) interest and other expense, net, (ii) loss on extinguishment of debt (none in periods presented), (iii) income tax (benefit) provision, (iv) depreciation and amortization, (v) stock-based compensation, (vi) acquisition transaction costs, (vii) change in fair value of contingent consideration liability, (viii) duplicate headquarters rent expense, and (ix) post-acquisition restructuring costs when they are incurred. We believe Adjusted EBITDA provides investors with useful information on period-to-period performance as evaluated by management and comparison with our past financial performance and is useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry, as this metric generally eliminates the effects of certain items that may vary from company to company for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. The following is a reconciliation of our net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, to Adjusted EBITDA, for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019. Three Months EndedSeptember 30, 2020 2019 (in thousands) Net loss $ (27,326 ) $ (21,416 ) Add.

Non-cash interest expense related to our convertible senior notes relates to the convertible senior notes that were issued in a private placement in April 2020. Under GAAP, we are required to separately account for liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of the convertible senior notes. Accordingly, for GAAP purposes we are required to recognize the effective interest expense on our convertible senior notes and amortize the issuance costs over the term of the notes.

The difference between the effective interest expense and the contractual interest expense, and the amortization expense of issuance costs are excluded from management’s assessment of our operating performance because management believes that these non-cash expenses are not indicative of ongoing operating performance.We believe Adjusted Net Loss provides investors with useful information on period-to-period performance as evaluated by management and comparison with our past financial performance and is useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry, as this metric generally eliminates the effects of certain items that may vary from company to company for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.On July 29, 2019, we closed our initial public offering (our IPO) in which we issued and sold 8,050,000 shares (inclusive of the underwriters’ option to purchase an additional 1,050,000 shares) of common stock at $26.00 per share. We received net proceeds of $194.6 million after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and before deducting offering costs of $4.6 million. Upon the closing of our IPO, all shares of our outstanding redeemable convertible preferred stock converted into 23,151,481 shares of common stock on a one-for-one basis. We have prepared the below adjusted condensed consolidated statement of operations data to present pro forma adjusted net loss per share amounts that will be comparable between the current and prior periods presented as if the conversion of all outstanding shares of redeemable convertible preferred stock and the issuance of the IPO shares had occurred as of the beginning of the prior year comparative periods.

Health Catalyst, Inc.Exercising during the levitra has been challenging for many of us.

Gyms have closed or limited occupancy, as have parks, pools, pathways and other recreational facilities. If trails are open, they often are jammed, making it difficult to socially distance while we hike, stroll, ride, jog or otherwise work out.Mask recommendations and requirements have created additional complications. Few people who exercise, including me, don masks with enthusiasm when it comes to vigorous workouts, convinced that they will make our faces sweaty, breathing labored and workouts more draining. We rejigger the timing and locales of our runs and rides so we can exercise when few other people are about and leave our faces uncovered.

Or we skip workouts altogether.But for those of us convinced that wearing a mask will make exercise harder or more unpleasant, two new studies offer a bracing counterpoint. Both find that masks do not negatively affect vigorous workouts, whether the mask is cloth, surgical or an N95 respirator model. The findings may surprise but also encourage anyone hoping to remain safe and active in the coming weeks and months, as erectile dysfunction cases surge nationwide.Most of our expectations about masks and exercise are based on anecdotes and preconceptions. Little past science has examined whether and how masks affect serious workouts.

The few relevant earlier experiments focused primarily on masked health care workers while they walked, to see if being active while masked affected their thinking or other capabilities. (It did not, the studies show.)But gentle strolling is not running, cycling or other more vigorous routines, and we have not had scientific evidence about how wearing a mask might alter those workouts. So, recently, two helpful groups of scientists separately decided to look into the issue.The first of the groups to release their findings, which were published in September in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine &. Science in Sports, concentrated on surgical and N95 respiratory masks during exercise.

The researchers, most of them affiliated with the Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa, Israel, invited 16 healthy, active adult men to come into the lab, where they checked heart rates, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, respiratory rates and current carbon dioxide levels. Then they fitted the men with thin, nasal tubes that would collect their expired breaths for testing and, on three separate visits to the lab, asked them to ride a stationary bicycle.At each visit, the men, in fact, completed a pedal-to-exhaustion test, during which the researchers gradually increased the resistance on the stationary bike, as if on a long, relentless hill climb, until the men could barely turn the pedals. Throughout, the researchers monitored the riders’ heart rates, breathing and other physiological measures and asked them repeatedly how hard the riding felt.During one ride, the men’s faces were uncovered. But for the two other sessions, they donned either a disposable paper surgical mask or a tightfitting N95 respirator mask.Afterward, the scientists compared the riders’ physiological and subjective responses during each ride and found few variations.

Masking had not made the cycling feel or be more draining and had not tired riders sooner. The only substantial effect was from N95 masks, which slightly increased levels of carbon dioxide in riders’ breaths, probably because the masks fit so tightly. But none of the riders complained of chest tightness, headaches or other breathing issues.Most expressed some surprise, instead, that the masks had not bothered them, says Dr. Danny Epstein, an attending physician in the internal medicine department at Rambam Health Care Campus, who led the new study.

They “had believed that their performances would be decreased by masking,” he says.Similarly, the researchers in the second masking study, which was published this month in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, hypothesized that masking would make exercisers uncomfortable and tired. For confirmation, they ran a group of 14 healthy, active men and women through the same ride-to-exhaustion sessions as in the Israeli study, while the volunteers alternately wore no mask or a three-layer cloth or a surgical face covering. The researchers monitored oxygen levels in the riders’ blood and muscles, heart rates, other physiological measures and the riders’ sense of how hard the exercise felt.Afterward, contrary to their hypothesis, they found no differences in the riders’ experience, whether they had worn a mask or not.“From the results of our study, I don’t think masks are likely to make workouts feel worse,” says Philip Chilibeck, a professor of kinesiology at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, who oversaw the study.Of course, both of the new studies recruited healthy, active adults. We do not know if the results would be the same in people who are older, younger, in worse shape or have existing breathing problems.

The studies also involved cycling. The outcomes probably would be similar in running, weight training and other vigorous activities, both Dr. Epstein and Dr. Chilibeck say, but that idea, for now, remains a presumption.

And, obviously, the studies looked at how masks affect the wearer, not whether and to what extent different facial coverings prevent the spread of respiratory droplets during exercise.Still, the findings suggest that anyone who hesitates to wear a mask during exercise should try one — although not an N95 mask, Dr. Epstein says, since they slightly up riders’ carbon dioxide levels and, anyway, should be reserved for health care workers.“erectile dysfunction treatment changes almost every aspect of our lives and makes simple things more complicated,” Dr. Epstein says. €œBut we can learn how to keep doing the essential things, such as exercise.

I learned to spend long hours with P.P.E.” — meaning full face masking and other protective clothing — “at the hospital. So, I believe we can get used to going to the gym,” and paths and sidewalks and busy trails, “with a mask.”Q. I have an autoimmune condition, a variant of rheumatoid arthritis, and recently started medications to suppress my immune response. Am I at increased risk of getting sick and dying from erectile dysfunction treatment?.

A. Autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus occur when the immune system mistakenly attacks normal body tissues. Treatments that suppress the immune system in an effort to thwart the damage to normal tissues may leave patients more susceptible to s. It stands to reason that a person with an immune system disorder thus might be more likely to get infected with erectile dysfunction treatment and die from the levitra.

But that may not be the case.In one study out of Italy, 1 percent of almost 2,300 patients hospitalized with erectile dysfunction treatment had autoimmune rheumatologic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. Most of these patients had been treated with corticosteroids or other drugs that can suppress the immune system before that admission. When compared to other patients without autoimmune conditions who were admitted to the same hospital, there did not appear to be any difference overall in erectile dysfunction treatment symptom duration, the length of the hospital stay, or the likelihood of dying.A small study out of New York, also conducted in patients with autoimmune rheumatologic conditions who had erectile dysfunction treatment, found a hospitalization rate similar to that of the general population in New York City.Another study examining electronic health records in the United States compared erectile dysfunction treatment patients who had a different immune-mediated condition, inflammatory bowel disease, to erectile dysfunction treatment patients without I.B.D. The investigators found no difference in erectile dysfunction treatment severity or death between the two groups, though in this study patients previously treated with corticosteroids may have had a higher risk of severe erectile dysfunction treatment s.In all three of these studies, older patients were more likely to have severe erectile dysfunction treatment or die, which is true of the population as a whole.

In two of the studies, those with accompanying medical conditions such as hypertension and obesity were also at higher risk of dying, which is also true of the general population.It is possible that patients with autoimmune conditions, and particularly those receiving immunosuppressive therapy, are particularly rigorous with prevention practices such as social distancing, wearing masks and hand washing. Such measures may have contributed to improved outcomes from erectile dysfunction treatment in this group compared to what might have been expected in an immunosuppressed population, therefore affecting the overall results of these studies. But in general, doctors have not observed a greatly increased risk of severe erectile dysfunction treatment s or death in those with autoimmune disorders.Do you have a health question?. Ask WellDr.

There are not enough health http://bridgetgleeson.com/2012/05/31/aventura-colombiana/ workers in California to meet the needs of the state’s increasingly discount levitra pills diverse, growing, and aging population, and the situation is getting worse. In 2019, 39 percent of Californians identified as Latinx, but only 14 percent of medical school students and 6 percent of active patient care physicians in California were Latinx.Researchers from Mathematica, with support from the California Health Care Foundation, recently reviewed evidence from key health workforce policy interventions to determine their impact on access to health care, the diversity of the health workforce, and providers’ ability to deliver services in a language other than English (“language concordance”). The evidence review included academic literature and discount levitra pills interviews of key experts in the field. It focused on health professions that require an advanced degree, because it has been particularly challenging to improve access, diversity, and language concordance through these jobs.“There have been many public and private efforts in California to increase the number and diversity of health professionals, but they have not been sufficient to alleviate the crisis,” said Diane Rittenhouse, a senior fellow at Mathematica.

€œIn a year with a state budget surplus, this report reviews evidence and presents options for public investment to improve health care access and health workforce diversity.” Mathematica’s researchers concluded that a blended approach is necessary to achieve better health care access and improve the diversity of the health workforce. For example, loan repayment in exchange for a commitment to serve in a medically underserved area discount levitra pills of California is a quick way to improve access to primary care, behavioral health, and dentistry in those areas.

Former Editor-in-Chief of the Postgraduate Medical Journal Dr Barry Ian Hoffbrand died suddenly on April 24, 2020 at the age of 86.A prominent member of a generation of very bright young levitra canada for sale doctors at University College Hospital (UCH) in London who went on to distinguished careers, he was much admired for his keen intellect, clinical perception and skills, gentle good humour and kindly nature, combined with a wonderfully sharp intelligence. Professor Dame Jane Dacre remembered him as ‘a kind, witty, clever man, and a great physician’.He was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire, to Philip Hoffbrand, a bespoke tailor, and Minnie (née Freedman), both from Jewish families from Eastern Europe. After Bradford Grammar School, he went up to read medicine from 1952 to 1956 at The Queen’s College, Oxford, where he was a keen member of the college cricket levitra canada for sale team—the Quondams. He was pleased to feature in the 1950s on the silver Quondams Cup. Clinical training on a Goldsmid scholarship followed from 1956 to 1958 at UCH Medical School, London, where he was awarded prizes in clinical pathology and haematology.

His postgraduate medical training was mainly at UCH, where he was house physician to Max (later Lord) Rosenheim, after an initial 6 months at levitra canada for sale St Luke’s Hospital, Bradford. He also spent a year as senior research fellow from 1967 to 1968 at the Cardiovascular Research Institute, at the University of California Medical Center in San Francisco. Barry’s research on cardiovascular physiology lead to a DM in 1971 from Oxford University.Barry was appointed in 1970 as a consultant physician at the Whittington Hospital and honorary senior clinical lecturer at UCH Medical School, with interests in general and …INTRODUCTIONAs cardiac arrest occurs in around 20% of the patients with severe erectile dysfunction treatment, a large number of them will require immediate resuscitative efforts.1 Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in erectile dysfunction treatment levitra has become a source of speculation and debate worldwide. Healthcare professionals (HCPs) resuscitating this subset of patients are subject to fears and enormous mental stress pertaining to risk of transmission, breach in personal protective equipment (PPE), unsure effectiveness of PPE and nevertheless bleak positive outcomes in patients despite best resuscitative measures.2 CPR, which is conventionally deemed to be life-saving for patients, appears levitra canada for sale as an aerosol-generating procedure risking lives of HCPs caring for patients with erectile dysfunction treatment. Protected code blue algorithm has been formulated to address both performer and patient safety.3POCUS-INTEGRATED CPR.

WHY THE NEED IN levitra canada for sale erectile dysfunction treatment?. Danilo Buonsenso and colleagues have described erectile dysfunction treatment era as demanding less stethoscope and more ultrasound usage in clinical practice.4 PPE is now an essential measure for HCP protection, and goggles used as a part of PPE are associated with fogging and poor visibility. This coupled with the inability to confirm endotracheal tube position with stethoscope due to poor accessibility in PPE, increases the risk of oesophageal intubation, re-intubation attempts, aerosol generation and thus HCP exposure. Bedside ultrasound could act as visual stethoscope in the described scenario levitra canada for sale. Sono-CPR in erectile dysfunction treatment can help intervene quickly in treatable cases and reduce the time spent by HCP in futile resuscitative efforts.

Reduced time spent equates to reduced duration of aerosol exposure and thus reduced risk of transmission. Various algorithms are described for sono-cardiopulmonary resuscitation (sono-CPR) during cardiac arrest, but none are discussed to address patients with erectile dysfunction treatment.5 It would levitra canada for sale hence be wise to integrate bedside point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) in the code blue algorithm.HOW THE BEDSIDE TOOL HELPS?. Hypoxemia and respiratory failure attribute over 80% aetiology of cardiac arrest in patients with erectile dysfunction treatment.1 Prioritising oxygenation and ventilation using definitive airway and use of high-efficiency particulate air filters reduces airborne transmission, thereby making early intubation the dictum of resuscitation.3 Considering poor visualisation due to fogging with the goggles and face shield, inability to use stethoscope and lack of availability of end-tidal CO2 (EtCO2) in resource constraint settings, ultrasound-guided real-time intubation by trained HCP or endotracheal tube (ETT) placement confirmation post intubation could prove beneficial. Confirming ETT placement and direct visualisation of oesophagal lumen can be done using a linear ultrasound probe.6 In cases of oesophageal intubation, tissue-air hyperechoic lines are visualised in both trachea and oesophagus, referred to as ‘double-track sign’.State of hypercoagulability and myocardial dysfunction exist in patients with erectile dysfunction treatment, hence increasing the likelihood of myocardial infarction or pulmonary thromboembolism as aetiologies of cardiac arrest.7 Regional wall motion abnormality, dilated right atrium or right levitra canada for sale ventricle, plethoric inferior vena cava are easily identified by goal-directed echocardiography. Pneumothorax has been reported in patients with erectile dysfunction treatment, and ultrasound can identify absence of lung sliding, helping in quick needle thoracocentesis in arrest and peri-arrest cases.

Few cases of cardiac tamponade owing to myopericarditis have also been reported and bedside ultrasound can help diagnose and perform pericardiocentesis in such patients.Literature suggests that the chances of Return Of Spontaneous Circulation (ROSC) and survival to hospital admission at 24 hours is better in patients with baseline cardiac activity rather than no baseline cardiac activity. In patients with no baseline cardiac activity on arrival, one can withhold CPR, thereby protecting the HCP in this resource-intensive, aerosol-generating futile resuscitative effort.8 Asystole could be the disguised entity of fine ventricular fibrillation, which levitra canada for sale can be confirmed by fibrillatory cardiac activity on transthoracic echocardiography and can be defibrillated, thereby increasing the chances of earlier ROSC.9POCUS-INTEGRATED CPR. THE PROPOSED ALGORITHMCPR is a chaotic scenario, and to prevent added chaos, there is a need for a well-trained ultrasound performer placed in an appropriate area (figure 1). Intubating room needs to consist of minimal necessary number of HCPs, and all of them should be equipped with full PPE. Ultrasound device could be a potential fomite facilitating cross-transmission and requires adequate protection of machine and its components with a transparent cover, sheet or levitra canada for sale bag.

When unavailable, low-level disinfectant solution should be used between each patient.Proposed algorithm for integration of POCUS during CPR in patients with erectile dysfunction treatment with team dynamics.

RA, right levitra canada for sale atrium. RV, right ventricle. VF, ventricular fibrillation. USG, ultrasonography.When a patient experiences cardiac arrest, there is a need for HCPs with levitra canada for sale full PPE to check pulse and begin CPR as per standard guidelines. After 2 min of CPR, if there is no ROSC, during the 10 second pause for rhythm assessment, a trained HCP can perform POCUS in a stepwise manner.

Each step needs to be performed individually during 10 second pause without prolonging delay between chest compressions and compromising the quality of levitra canada for sale CPR. Any treatable aetiology identified during the algorithm requires immediate intervention.Step 1. Assess cardiac activity—Sub-xiphoid view can be procured and cardiac activity assessed. If absent, consider termination of efforts, and if present, resuscitative levitra canada for sale efforts can be continued.After repeating 2 min cycle of CPR, if there has been no ROSC, consider hypoxic aetiology as the cause of arrest in patients with erectile dysfunction treatment and intubate without delay. Withholding chest compressions during intubation is recommended.3Step 2.

Assess ETT placement—At the level of thyroid gland, above the suprasternal notch, place ultrasound probe transversely and visualise the oesophagus.10 If the posterior wall of oesophagus is obscured by a dark acoustic shadow or if there is ‘double-track’ sign, consider failed endotracheal intubation and perform immediate re-intubation.Step 3. Assess lung for pneumothorax—Assess lung levitra canada for sale sliding, and if absent look for ‘stratosphere sign’ in M-mode of ultrasound.10 If detected, perform immediate needle thoracocentesis.Step 4. Assess for Cardiac etiology of arrest—Obtain sub-xiphoid window preferably, and look for the presence of cardiac tamponade, chamber dilatation or collapse, regional wall motion abnormality and cardiac contractility.Availability of trained personnel and smaller portable ultrasound devices makes its use during cardiac arrest plausible.CPR with the help of POCUS could thus prove to improve chances of ROSC and also reduced transmission to HCP by early identification, treatment of reversible causes and avoidance of prolonged efforts. Sono-CPR appears to be more HCP-friendly than prolonged blind CPR and necessitates its utility in the era of erectile dysfunction treatment addressing performer safety as well as patient safety..

On January 31, 2020, the Secretary declared a public health emergency pursuant to section 319 of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 247d, effective January 27, 2020, for the entire United States to aid in the response of the nation's health care community to the erectile dysfunction treatment outbreak.

Pursuant to section 319 of the PHS Act, the Secretary renewed that declaration on April 26, 2020, and July 25, 2020. On March 10, 2020, the Secretary issued a Declaration under the PREP Act for medical countermeasures against erectile dysfunction treatment (85 FR 15198, Mar. 17, 2020) (the Declaration).

On April 10, the Secretary amended the Declaration under the PREP Act to extend liability immunity to covered countermeasures authorized under the CARES Act (85 FR 21012, Apr. 15, 2020). On June 4, the Secretary amended the Declaration to clarify that covered countermeasures under the Declaration include qualified countermeasures that limit the harm erectile dysfunction treatment might otherwise cause.

The Secretary now amends section V of the Declaration to identify as qualified persons covered under the PREP Act, and thus authorizes, certain State-licensed pharmacists to order and administer, and pharmacy interns (who are licensed or registered by their State board of pharmacy and acting under the supervision of a State-licensed pharmacist) to administer, any treatment that the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends to persons ages three through 18 according to ACIP's standard immunization schedule (ACIP-recommended treatments).[] The Secretary also amends section VIII of the Declaration to clarify that the category of disease, health condition, or threat for which he recommends the administration or use of the Covered Countermeasures includes not only erectile dysfunction treatment caused by erectile dysfunction or a levitra mutating therefrom, but also other diseases, health conditions, or threats that may have been caused by erectile dysfunction treatment, erectile dysfunction, or a levitra mutating therefrom, including the decrease in the rate of childhood immunizations, which will lead to an increase in the rate of infectious diseases. Description of This Amendment by Section Section V. Covered Persons Under the PREP Act and the Declaration, a “qualified person” is a “covered person.” Subject to certain limitations, a covered person is immune from suit and liability under Federal and State law with respect to all claims for loss caused by, arising out of, relating to, or resulting from the administration or use of a covered countermeasure if a declaration under subsection (b) has been issued with respect to such countermeasure.

€œQualified person” includes (A) a licensed health professional or other individual who is authorized to prescribe, administer, or dispense such countermeasures under the law of the State in which the countermeasure was prescribed, administered, or dispensed. Or (B) “a person within a category of persons so identified in a declaration by the Secretary” under subsection (b) of the PREP Act. 42 U.S.C.

247d-6d(i)(8).[] By this amendment to the Declaration, the Secretary identifies an additional category of persons who are qualified persons under section 247d-6d(i)(8)(B).[] On May 8, 2020, CDC reported, “The identified declines in routine pediatric treatment ordering and doses administered might indicate that U.S. Children and their communities face increased risks for outbreaks of treatment-preventable diseases,” and suggested that a decrease in rates of routine childhood vaccinations were due to changes in healthcare access, social distancing, and other erectile dysfunction treatment mitigation strategies.[] The report also stated that “[p]arental concerns about potentially exposing their children to erectile dysfunction treatment during well child visits might contribute to the declines observed.” [] On July 10, 2020, CDC reported its findings of a May survey it conducted to assess the capacity of pediatric health care practices to provide immunization services to children during the erectile dysfunction treatment levitra. The survey, which was limited to practices participating in the treatments for Children program, found that, as of mid-May, 15 percent of Northeast pediatric practices were closed, 12.5 percent of Midwest practices were closed, 6.2 percent of practices in the South were closed, and 10 percent of practices in the West were closed.

Most practices had reduced office hours for in-person visits. When asked whether their practices would likely be able to accommodate new patients for immunization services through August, 418 practices (21.3 percent) either responded that this was not likely or the practice was permanently closed or not resuming immunization services for all patients, and 380 (19.6 percent) responded that they were unsure. Urban practices and those in the Northeast were less likely to be able to accommodate new patients compared with rural practices and those in the South, Midwest, or West.[] In response to these troubling developments, CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics have stressed, “Well-child visits and vaccinations are essential services and help make sure children are protected.” [] The Secretary re-emphasizes that important recommendation to parents and legal guardians here.

If your child is due for a well-child visit, contact your pediatrician's or other primary-care provider's office and ask about ways that the office safely offers well-child visits and vaccinations. Many medical offices are taking extra steps to make sure that well-child visits can occur safely during the erectile dysfunction treatment levitra, including. Scheduling sick visits and well-child visits during different times of the Start Printed Page 52138day or days of the week, or at different locations.

Asking patients to remain outside until it is time for their appointments to reduce the number of people in waiting rooms. Adhering to recommended social (physical) distancing and other -control practices, such as the use of masks. The decrease in childhood-vaccination rates is a public health threat and a collateral harm caused by erectile dysfunction treatment.

Together, the United States must turn to available medical professionals to limit the harm and public health threats that may result from decreased immunization rates. We must quickly do so to avoid preventable s in children, additional http://drumimox.de/beckenkunde-vol-1/ strains on our healthcare system, and any further increase in avoidable adverse health consequences—particularly if such complications coincide with additional resurgence of erectile dysfunction treatment. Together with pediatricians and other healthcare professionals, pharmacists are positioned to expand access to childhood vaccinations.

Many States already allow pharmacists to administer treatments to children of any age.[] Other States permit pharmacists to administer treatments to children depending on the age—for example, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, or 12 years of age and older.[] Few States restrict pharmacist-administered vaccinations to only adults.[] Many States also allow properly trained individuals under the supervision of a trained pharmacist to administer those treatments.[] Pharmacists are well positioned to increase access to vaccinations, particularly in certain areas or for certain populations that have too few pediatricians and other primary-care providers, or that are otherwise medically underserved.[] As of 2018, nearly 90 percent of Americans lived within five miles of a community pharmacy.[] Pharmacies often offer extended hours and added convenience. What is more, pharmacists are trusted healthcare professionals with established relationships with their patients. Pharmacists also have strong relationships with local medical providers and hospitals to refer patients as appropriate.

For example, pharmacists already play a significant role in annual influenza vaccination. In the early 2018-19 season, they administered the influenza treatment to nearly a third of all adults who received the treatment.[] Given the potential danger of serious influenza and continuing erectile dysfunction treatment outbreaks this autumn and the impact that such concurrent outbreaks may have on our population, our healthcare system, and our whole-of-nation response to the erectile dysfunction treatment levitra, we must quickly expand access to influenza vaccinations. Allowing more qualified pharmacists to administer the influenza treatment to children will make vaccinations more accessible.

Therefore, the Secretary amends the Declaration to identify State-licensed pharmacists (and pharmacy interns acting under their supervision if the pharmacy intern is licensed or registered by his or her State board of pharmacy) as qualified persons under section 247d-6d(i)(8)(B) when the pharmacist orders and either the pharmacist or the supervised pharmacy intern administers treatments to individuals ages three through 18 pursuant to the following requirements. The treatment must be FDA-authorized or FDA-approved. The vaccination must be ordered and administered according to ACIP's standard immunization schedule.[] The licensed pharmacist must complete a practical training program of at least 20 hours that is approved by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).

This training Start Printed Page 52139program must include hands-on injection technique, clinical evaluation of indications and contraindications of treatments, and the recognition and treatment of emergency reactions to treatments.[] The licensed or registered pharmacy intern must complete a practical training program that is approved by the ACPE. This training program must include hands-on injection technique, clinical evaluation of indications and contraindications of treatments, and the recognition and treatment of emergency reactions to treatments.[] The licensed pharmacist and licensed or registered pharmacy intern must have a current certificate in basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation.[] The licensed pharmacist must complete a minimum of two hours of ACPE-approved, immunization-related continuing pharmacy education during each State licensing period.[] The licensed pharmacist must comply with recordkeeping and reporting requirements of the jurisdiction in which he or she administers treatments, including informing the patient's primary-care provider when available, submitting the required immunization information to the State or local immunization information system (treatment registry), complying with requirements with respect to reporting adverse events, and complying with requirements whereby the person administering a treatment must review the treatment registry or other vaccination records prior to administering a treatment.[] The licensed pharmacist must inform his or her childhood-vaccination patients and the adult caregivers accompanying the children of the importance of a well-child visit with a pediatrician or other licensed primary-care provider and refer patients as appropriate.[] These requirements are consistent with those in many States that permit licensed pharmacists to order and administer treatments to children and permit licensed or registered pharmacy interns acting under their supervision to administer treatments to children.[] Administering vaccinations to children age three and older is less complicated and requires less training and resources than administering vaccinations to younger children. That is because ACIP generally recommends administering intramuscular injections in the deltoid muscle for individuals age three and older.[] For individuals less than three years of age, ACIP generally recommends administering intramuscular injections in the anterolateral aspect of the thigh muscle.[] Administering injections in the thigh muscle often presents additional complexities and requires additional training and resources including additional personnel to safely position the child while another healthcare professional injects the treatment.[] Moreover, as of 2018, 40% of three-year-olds were enrolled in preprimary programs (i.e.

Preschool or kindergarten programs).[] Preprimary programs are beginning in the coming weeks or months, so the Secretary has concluded that it is particularly important for individuals ages three through 18 to receive ACIP-recommended treatments according to ACIP's standard immunization schedule. All States require children to be vaccinated against certain communicable diseases as a condition of school attendance. These laws often apply to both public and private schools with identical immunization and exemption provisions.[] As nurseries, preschools, kindergartens, and schools reopen, increased access to childhood vaccinations is essential to ensuring children can return.

Notwithstanding any State or local scope-of-practice legal requirements, (1) qualified licensed pharmacists are identified as qualified persons to order and administer ACIP-recommended treatments and (2) qualified State-licensed or registered pharmacy interns are identified as qualified persons to administer the ACIP-recommended treatments ordered by their supervising qualified licensed pharmacist.[] Both the PREP Act and the June 4, 2020 Second Amendment to the Declaration define “covered countermeasures” to include qualified levitra and epidemic products that “limit the harm such levitra or epidemic might otherwise cause.” [] The troubling decrease in ACIP-recommended childhood vaccinations and the resulting increased risk of associated diseases, adverse health conditions, and other threats are categories of harms otherwise caused by Start Printed Page 52140erectile dysfunction treatment as set forth in Sections VI and VIII of this Declaration.[] Hence, such vaccinations are “covered countermeasures” under the PREP Act and the June 4, 2020 Second Amendment to the Declaration. Nothing in this Declaration shall be construed to affect the National treatment Injury Compensation Program, including an injured party's ability to obtain compensation under that program. Covered countermeasures that are subject to the National treatment Injury Compensation Program authorized under 42 U.S.C.

300aa-10 et seq. Are covered under this Declaration for the purposes of liability immunity and injury compensation only to the extent that injury compensation is not provided under that Program. All other terms and conditions of the Declaration apply to such covered countermeasures.

Section VIII. Category of Disease, Health Condition, or Threat As discussed, the troubling decrease in ACIP-recommended childhood vaccinations and the resulting increased risk of associated diseases, adverse health conditions, and other threats are categories of harms otherwise caused by erectile dysfunction treatment. The Secretary therefore amends section VIII, which describes the category of disease, health condition, or threat for which he recommends the administration or use of the Covered Countermeasures, to clarify that the category of disease, health condition, or threat for which he recommends the administration or use of the Covered Countermeasures is not only erectile dysfunction treatment caused by erectile dysfunction or a levitra mutating therefrom, but also other diseases, health conditions, or threats that may have been caused by erectile dysfunction treatment, erectile dysfunction, or a levitra mutating therefrom, including the decrease in the rate of childhood immunizations, which will lead to an increase in the rate of infectious diseases.

Amendments to Declaration Amended Declaration for Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act Coverage for medical countermeasures against erectile dysfunction treatment. Sections V and VIII of the March 10, 2020 Declaration under the PREP Act for medical countermeasures against erectile dysfunction treatment, as amended April 10, 2020 and June 4, 2020, are further amended pursuant to section 319F-3(b)(4) of the PHS Act as described below. All other sections of the Declaration remain in effect as published at 85 FR 15198 (Mar.

End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP Act) authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Services (the Secretary) to issue a Declaration to provide liability immunity to certain individuals and entities (Covered Persons) against any claim of loss caused by, arising out of, relating to, or resulting from the manufacture, distribution, administration, or use of medical countermeasures (Covered Countermeasures), except for claims involving “willful misconduct” as defined in the PREP Act. Under the PREP Act, a Declaration may be amended as circumstances warrant. The PREP Act was enacted on December 30, 2005, as Public Law 109-148, Division C, § 2. It amended the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, adding section 319F-3, which addresses liability immunity, and section 319F-4, which creates a compensation program. These sections are codified at 42 U.S.C.

247d-6d and 42 U.S.C. 247d-6e, respectively.

Pursuant to section 319 of the PHS Act, the Secretary renewed that declaration on April 26, 2020, and July 25, 2020. On March 10, 2020, the Secretary issued a Declaration under the PREP Act for medical countermeasures against erectile dysfunction treatment (85 FR 15198, Mar. 17, 2020) (the Declaration). On April 10, the Secretary amended the Declaration under the PREP Act to extend liability immunity to covered countermeasures authorized under the CARES Act (85 FR 21012, Apr. 15, 2020).

On June 4, the Secretary amended the Declaration to clarify that covered countermeasures under the Declaration include qualified countermeasures that limit the harm erectile dysfunction treatment might otherwise cause. The Secretary now amends section V of the Declaration to identify as qualified persons covered under the PREP Act, and thus authorizes, certain State-licensed pharmacists to order and administer, and pharmacy interns (who are licensed or registered by their State board of pharmacy and acting under the supervision of a State-licensed pharmacist) to administer, any treatment that the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends to persons ages three through 18 according to ACIP's standard immunization schedule (ACIP-recommended treatments).[] The Secretary also amends section VIII of the Declaration to clarify that the category of disease, health condition, or threat for which he recommends the administration or use of the Covered Countermeasures includes not only erectile dysfunction treatment caused by erectile dysfunction or a levitra mutating therefrom, but also other diseases, health conditions, or threats that may have been caused by erectile dysfunction treatment, erectile dysfunction, or a levitra mutating therefrom, including the decrease in the rate of childhood immunizations, which will lead to an increase in the rate of infectious diseases.

Or (B) “a person within a category of persons so identified in a declaration by the Secretary” under subsection (b) of the PREP Act. 42 U.S.C. 247d-6d(i)(8).[] By this amendment to the Declaration, the Secretary identifies an additional category of persons who are qualified persons under section 247d-6d(i)(8)(B).[] On May 8, 2020, CDC reported, “The identified declines in routine pediatric treatment ordering and doses administered might indicate that U.S. Children and their communities face increased risks for outbreaks of treatment-preventable diseases,” and suggested that a decrease in rates of routine childhood vaccinations were due to changes in healthcare access, social distancing, and other erectile dysfunction treatment mitigation strategies.[] The report also stated that “[p]arental concerns about potentially exposing their children to erectile dysfunction treatment during well child visits might contribute to the declines observed.” [] On July 10, 2020, CDC reported its findings of a May survey it conducted to assess the capacity of pediatric health care practices to provide immunization services to children during the erectile dysfunction treatment levitra.

This training program must include hands-on injection technique, clinical evaluation of indications and contraindications of treatments, and the recognition and treatment of emergency reactions to treatments.[] The licensed pharmacist and licensed or registered pharmacy intern must have a current certificate in basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation.[] The licensed pharmacist must complete a minimum of two hours of ACPE-approved, immunization-related continuing pharmacy education during each State licensing period.[] The licensed pharmacist must comply with recordkeeping and reporting requirements of the jurisdiction in which he or she administers treatments, including informing the patient's primary-care provider when available, submitting the required immunization information to the State or local immunization information system (treatment registry), complying with requirements with respect to reporting adverse events, and complying with requirements whereby the person administering a treatment must review the treatment registry or other vaccination records prior to administering a treatment.[] The licensed pharmacist must inform his or her childhood-vaccination patients and the adult caregivers accompanying the children of the importance of a well-child visit with a pediatrician or other licensed primary-care provider and refer patients as appropriate.[] These requirements are consistent with those in many States that permit licensed pharmacists to order and administer treatments to children and permit licensed or registered pharmacy interns acting under their supervision to administer treatments to children.[] Administering vaccinations to children age three and older is less complicated and requires less training and resources than administering vaccinations to younger children. That is because ACIP generally recommends administering intramuscular injections in the deltoid muscle for individuals age three and older.[] For individuals less than three years of age, ACIP generally recommends administering intramuscular injections in the anterolateral aspect of the thigh muscle.[] Administering injections in the thigh muscle often presents additional complexities and requires additional training and resources including additional personnel to safely position the child while another healthcare professional injects the treatment.[] Moreover, as of 2018, 40% of three-year-olds were enrolled in preprimary programs (i.e. Preschool or kindergarten programs).[] Preprimary programs are beginning in the coming weeks or months, so the Secretary has concluded that it is particularly important for individuals ages three through 18 to receive ACIP-recommended treatments according to ACIP's standard immunization schedule.

All States require children to be vaccinated against certain communicable diseases as a condition of school attendance. These laws often apply to both public and private schools with identical immunization and exemption provisions.[] As nurseries, preschools, kindergartens, and schools reopen, increased access to childhood vaccinations is essential to ensuring children can return. Notwithstanding any State or local scope-of-practice legal requirements, (1) qualified licensed pharmacists are identified as qualified persons to order and administer ACIP-recommended treatments and (2) qualified State-licensed or registered pharmacy interns are identified as qualified persons to administer the ACIP-recommended treatments ordered by their supervising qualified licensed pharmacist.[] Both the PREP Act and the June 4, 2020 Second Amendment to the Declaration define “covered countermeasures” to include qualified levitra and epidemic products that “limit the harm such levitra or epidemic might otherwise cause.” [] The troubling decrease in ACIP-recommended childhood vaccinations and the resulting increased risk of associated diseases, adverse health conditions, and other threats are categories of harms otherwise caused by Start Printed Page 52140erectile dysfunction treatment as set forth in Sections VI and VIII of this Declaration.[] Hence, such vaccinations are “covered countermeasures” under the PREP Act and the June 4, 2020 Second Amendment to the Declaration. Nothing in this Declaration shall be construed to affect the National treatment Injury Compensation Program, including an injured party's ability to obtain compensation under that program. Covered countermeasures that are subject to the National treatment Injury Compensation Program authorized under 42 U.S.C.

300aa-10 et seq. Are covered under this Declaration for the purposes of liability immunity and injury compensation only to the extent that injury compensation is not provided under that Program. All other terms and conditions of the Declaration apply to such covered countermeasures. Section VIII. Category of Disease, Health Condition, or Threat As discussed, the troubling decrease in ACIP-recommended childhood vaccinations and the resulting increased risk of associated diseases, adverse health conditions, and other threats are categories of harms otherwise caused by erectile dysfunction treatment.

The Secretary therefore amends section VIII, which describes the category of disease, health condition, or threat for which he recommends the administration or use of the Covered Countermeasures, to clarify that the category of disease, health condition, or threat for which he recommends the administration or use of the Covered Countermeasures is not only erectile dysfunction treatment caused by erectile dysfunction or a levitra mutating therefrom, but also other diseases, health conditions, or threats that may have been caused by erectile dysfunction treatment, erectile dysfunction, or a levitra mutating therefrom, including the decrease in the rate of childhood immunizations, which will lead to an increase in the rate of infectious diseases. Amendments to Declaration Amended Declaration for Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act Coverage for medical countermeasures against erectile dysfunction treatment. Sections V and VIII of the March 10, 2020 Declaration under the PREP Act for medical countermeasures against erectile dysfunction treatment, as amended April 10, 2020 and June 4, 2020, are further amended pursuant to section 319F-3(b)(4) of the PHS Act as described below. All other sections of the Declaration remain in effect as published at 85 FR 15198 (Mar. 17, 2020) and amended at 85 FR 21012 (Apr.

15, 2020) and 85 FR 35100 (June 8, 2020). 1. Covered Persons, section V, delete in full and replace with. V. Covered Persons 42 U.S.C.
