Teens face untold pressures, from physical changes to questions about who they are and what they want to do with their lives, so it’s no wonder they are known for being a moody and temperamental group.

But while occasional bad moods and acting out can be normal adolescent conduct, these types of behaviors can also indicate underlying #depression or anxiety. Depression and anxiety can be damaging if left untreated, leading to long-term issues.

Dr. Gurinder Dabhia, a Scripps pediatrician, discusses how to diagnose, treat and cope with #teendepression or #anxiety disorder: http://bit.ly/TnDpG.

Newborns can be intimidating. They’re tiny, cry a lot, and cannot interact the way you’re probably used to. Even if men haven’t had a great deal of hands-on experience with infants, fathers can forge a personal bond with their baby from the start.

Family medicine physician David Miller, MD recommends the following tips for dads to develop a personal bond from the start:
1. Be an active part of the daily routine, including bedtime.
2. Remember: touch is key.
3. Spend quality time alone with your newborn baby.
4. Have a dance party, make silly faces or have a staring contest.

As long as you spend time with your baby, a father-child bond will develop. Relax and enjoy this time together!

What if hospital stays could be shorter and less costly for patients?

One study by Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute shows how better managed care could lead to just that: www.scripps.org/news_items/5313-hospital-stays-longer-more-costly-with-poorly-controlled-blood-sugar?utm_campaign=2015-06-17-diabetes-pr-hospital-stays-longer-more-costly-with-poorly-controlled-blood-sugar&utm_medium=social&utm_source=googleplus

#diabetes  
Diabetes patients with abnormal blood sugar levels had longer, more costly hospital stays than those with glucose levels in a healthy range.

Did you know it’s common for #heartfailure hospitalizations to spike around holidays? We’re committed to providing the best treatment options for patients with heart failure– including implanted device treatments that may help improve quality of life and reduce hospitalizations.

Here’s how an #LVAD when Darla was faced with heart failure: http://bit.ly/DrlLvdG
Darla Calvert's heart failure almost ended her life, until a left-ventrical assist device (LVAD) at Scripps Health in San Diego extended it.

How healthy is your heart?

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States; every year, about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack.

Within five years of an initial #heartattack, 15 percent of men and 22 percent of women ages 45-64—and 22 percent of men and women older than 65—will suffer another heart attack or fatal coronary event.

Research shows that nearly 80 percent of heart attack patients who participate in a #cardiacrehab program are still alive three years later, compared to just 64 percent of those who did not take advantage of cardiac rehabilitation.

In addition, the risk of having another heart attack has been shown to drop by 25 percent among patients who participate in a program.

Here’s how cardiac rehab can help: http://bit.ly/CrdRhbG.
Dr. Matthew Lucks, a cardiologist at Scripps Health, discusses the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation programs.

Scripps CEO Chris Van Gorder provides insight on today's court ruling regarding health care reform: http://bit.ly/ACAgpl.

At Scripps, we have been working to reduce costs and improve quality even before health care reform came about, and since have been committed to continuing those efforts no matter what happened with the ACA — it’s just the right thing to do for our patients. We’re seeing results from our efforts to reduce unnecessary variation and redundancy within health care operations, and to replace old systems with more innovative approaches and technologies.

“With this latest court decision behind us, I hope we can, as a nation, all move forward to build the higher quality and more cost effective health care system that all Americans deserve.”

For the second time in three years, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has survived a significant legal challenge at the Supreme Court.

Well said. It is indeed, not perfect, but it is necessary. It will improve over time.
