Infographic: Fireworks safety tips for the Fourth

The July Fourth holiday and the summer months invite a slew of injuries from misuse of fireworks. Adult men suffer the most harm during this time.

As the U.S. celebrates freedom and patriotism, there’s an increase in emergency room visits around Independence Day.

The most common wounds that health care providers deal with are burns and lacerations.

The Consumer Product Safety Council’s new infographic on fireworks safety says:

  • Nearly 70 percent of fireworks injuries in 2014 occurred in the month surrounding the July Fourth holiday (June 20 through July 20).

  • More than 35 percent of people injure their hands when using explosives.

  • Some 20 percent of people hurt by fireworks suffer head injuries, including damage to their faces and ears.

To best protect adults and kids from injuries this season, law enforcement and health care officials encourage people to view professional fireworks shows, rather than igniting their own fireworks.

For those gathering in their neighborhoods to use bottle rockets, sparklers and firecrackers, communicators can share the CPSC tips. Take a look:

Infographic: A parent’s guide to dental hygiene

Cavities can develop before a baby’s teeth are actually showing. To ensure proper dental care, parents and caregivers must be educated on the topic.

Communicators can share the information from Mortenson Family Dental with patients. Highlights include:

  • One-fifth of children ages 5 to 11 have untreated tooth decay.

  • As much as one-third of untreated tooth decay can be prevented with fluoride use.

  • Babies are born with 20 primary teeth underneath their gums, and cavities can develop before buds are showing.

There are good nuggets on teething and about nutrition for older kids, as well.

Infographic: Wake patients up about sleep deprivation

The average person sleeps less than seven hours a night, a practice that can lead to a number of health-related problems.

People who are consistently sleep-deprived can suffer from:

  • Elevated blood pressure

  • A greater likelihood of developing diabetes and becoming obese

  • Slower reaction times when driving

Health care providers can explore sleep apnea issues with patients, too. This infographic says sleep apnea occurs when breathing stops for 10 to 30 seconds. This condition can lead to snoring, loss of sleep and even fatal car accidents.

Offer these suggestions to people who need more slumber:

  • Keep electronics and gadgets out of the bedroom

  • Avoid foods with sugar and heavy carbs

  • Forbid pets in your bedroom, especially on your bed

Infographic: Adults need vaccines, too

Age-specific vaccines are often overlooked by patients. That means it’s time for physicians to be more attentive to adults who may be due for some shots.

This infographic says that chicken pox, sexually transmitted diseases, whooping cough and other illnesses that adults may contract can usually be prevented—if people are vaccinated.

For example, patients:

  • Living in college dorms can be encouraged to get HPV, influenza and measles shots

  • Getting ready to retire can be reminded about flu shots and shingles vaccines

  • Planning to travel overseas can consider hepatitis, measles and meningitis inoculations

One important note about older Americans who received vaccines as children. Some people may need a booster or additional dose if their original shots were administered 50 years ago.
