Do you know CPR?

According to Dr. David Ashpole, CPR clearly helped save Nancy Karlen's life as well as helped blood continue to flow to her brain in order to help preserve her brain functions.

Whooping cough can still affect adults, but it's far less fatal and is typically a persistent cough and sore throat. The main concern is controlling the spread to babies. That all starts with adults keeping up on their vaccines.

There's been a growing demand for family practice doctors in the Aberdeen area and Dr. Shawn Bartel is helping meet that need. Ensuring that patients like Mason get checked out when problems pop up.

Sensory processing disorder or SPD is a condition that exists when sensory signals don't get organized into appropriate responses.

An easy way to think of it is like a neurological traffic jam where the brain isn't receiving and interpreting sensory information correctly. This means for kids like Lucas, everyday tasks can be impossible.
