Fort Campbell, Do not touch or remove Fawns from Habitat

 

Written by Sgt. Patrick Kirby
40th Public Affairs Detachment

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell,  KY – It is the season for fawns here on Fort Campbell, as does typically give birth in May and June.

The deer population on Fort Campbell is very dense, especially in the housing areas where hunting is not allowed.

When a doe gives birth its first instinct is to protect the fawn. The doe feeds her young every two to three hours.

Whenever the doe is out in the open with her fawn, the fawn is in danger of attacks from predators. Because she must continue to forage for food, she hides her fawns somewhere safe. Here on Fort Campbell that safe spot often is somewhere near houses in a flower bed or yard.

A rescued fawn prances around its enclosure Tuesday in Greenville, KY. A fawn that is removed from its safe hiding spot or is handled by humans are often abandoned because the doe cannot find it. (Sgt. Patrick Kirby, 40th Public Affairs Detachment)

American Heart Association says Wearable Defibrillators may be an alternative to Surgically Implanted Device for children with certain heart rhythm disorders

 

American Heart Association Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Wearable cardioverter defibrillators – vest-like devices that deliver electric shocks to interrupt a dangerous heart rhythm – may be a safe and effective alternative to surgically implanted devices in children with ventricular heart rhythm disorders that put them at risk for sudden cardiac death, according to new research published in Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology, an American Heart Association journal.

Study finds external wearable defibrillators are safe and effective in children with ventricular heart rhythm disorders that put them at risk for sudden cardiac death. The wearable devices may provide a reliable alternative to surgically implanted . (American Heart Association)

American Heart Association reports Gene Editing Technology may improve accuracy of predicting individuals’ Heart Disease Risk

 

American Heart Association Circulation Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Scientists may now be able to predict whether carrying a specific genetic variant increases a person’s risk for disease using gene editing and stem cell technologies, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

For the first time, the study demonstrates the unique potential of combining stem cell-based disease modeling (Induced pluripotent stem cells) and CRISPR/Cas9-mediated genome editing technology as a personalized risk-assessment platform for determining the disease-causing ability of a yet undescribed genetic variant, known as a “variant of uncertain significance” or VUS.

Gene-editing technology may help scientists discern whether genetic variations with undetermined effects are harmless or dangerous. (American Heart Association)
