Measles is a contagious viral illness that causes a skin rash and fever. Serious and sometimes fatal complications include pneumonia and encephalitis (brain inflammation). Measles is also known as rubeola, not to be confused with rubella (German measles). Worldwide, measles is the fifth highest cause of illness and death in children.Measles is rare in Australia because of the widespread use of the measles vaccine. It is important to continue immunising children in Australia, because there is a risk that the infection can be brought in by people arriving or returning from overseas. Read More >

National Heart Week 28 April – 4 May 2019

Health Weeks

 

Heart Week 2019 focuses on encouraging more people to understand their risk factors for heart disease and take the right steps to reduce this risk.

Heart Week is an opportunity for health professionals and the Australian public to start a conversation about heart health and the steps needed to reduce the risk of heart disease.

In 2019, Heart Week is celebrated from 28 April–4 May. It will focus on the importance of having a heart health check. 

In particular we are focusing on:

  • Heart health checks and what they involve
  • Which patients should have a heart health check and why
  • What steps patients can take to manage their risk of heart disease and stroke.

Our defibrillator located at Berwick Pharmacy

Did you know we have a cardiac defibrillator (or AED) available for public use at Berwick Pharmacy?

It was donated by an oh-so-considerate member of our community a few years ago.

It is available to use for people having a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

The defibrillator analyses the heart rhythm. If it detects an abnormal rhythm, it decides whether a shock is required. Using the AED attempts to shock the heart back into normal rhythm.

Every minute counts in a heart attack. The chance of survival doubles if someone is defibrillates before paramedics arrive on scene.

So although we seriously hope you or your loved ones will never need to use it, keep in mind that Berwick Pharmacy has an AED available for use.
