Often called the “Green” state, Vermont is one of the healthiest states of America. However, that does not mean it is unaffected by health hazards.
Pollution continues to be a major cause of concern. The Vermont Department of Health receives and responds to hundreds of queries from concerned citizens, researchers and community organizations about health challenges stemming from air pollutants and water contaminants.
Since 2009, the health department of Vermont has received funds which are spent on building a network to collect healthcare data from across the state. This data is handed to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) National Tracking Network.
Recognizing the fact that better immunization coverage will help prevent and eventually eliminate preventable diseases and disorders, the Vermont Department of Health Immunization Program goes the extra mile to ensure that immunization coverage is extended to the maximum possible number of children and adults.
his program provides vaccines, training and technical support to vaccine providers in the public and private sector and creates awareness about the importance of immunization and vaccination.
Aug 26, 2018 -- Death defying Hamilton Falls
A collective effort of both bystanders and troopers from the Vermont State Police in performing CPR revived the victim who fell off the Hamilton Falls. Seventeen-year-old Tyler Rosenberg of New York was trying to cross to the other side of the falls when he slipped and fell, badly hitting his head. Bystanders on the scene immediately performed CPR to revive him while waiting for help. Additional CPR efforts were performed with the arrival of Corporal Mike Sorensen of the Vermont State Police until the victim started to breath on his own again. The victim was later airlifted to the Darmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center where he expired that same afternoon.
Jul 19, 2018 -- Northshire rescue squad gets a new automatic CPR unit
Rescue units no longer have to worry about limited number of staff during emergency situations. This newly-acquired equipment by the Northshire Rescue Squad can perform CPR the way an EMS can. The new equipment is called AutoPulse, an automatic CPR unit that can perform 80 compressions per minute on the entire chest and rib cage areas. It will significantly make the tasks easier for EMS as it will allow them to attend to more serious cases while the auto CPR is simultaneously doing its task. Subscription to this service is good for one year which covers all members of the family who have been listed in the subscription form.
Apr 07, 2017 -- No time to lose with CPR
A woman was found swerved to the side of the road after suffering a heart attack. Luckily for her, officer Stephen Bova was nearby. With no time to think, he inmediatly came to the rescue and performed CPR on the almost dying woman. The rescue team arrived and took the woman to a hospital for prompt treatment "I remember it being kind of a real gloomy, rainy morning -- and, you know, I didn't think the outlook was gonna be too positive — she really was in kind of bad condition. The doctor then turned and told me the life-saving efforts of Officer Bova directly lead to her ability to fully recover." said Lieutenant Michael Cram
