Lehigh County Health & Medicine Fall/Winter 2020 - 4

IN THIS ISSUE

W

ell, it seems that just a few weeks ago I was writing this article
for the summer edition; how time flies. Now the fall - winter
edition and holiday seasons are right around the corner.

This has been a troubling year for many; we're hoping this edition will
give you resources that are timely and helpful. Many of the articles for
this edition revolve around the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this issue you will find an article on pregnancy and COVID-19. We
have all needed to adapt to what has become normal, but those who are
expecting have the additional stress of delivering a baby during the current
pandemic. Please read COVID-19 and Pregnancy: What we know so far.
Some have experienced skin conditions from wearing masks to protect
ourselves and those around us. See the article Prevention and Treatment
of skin conditions related to personal protective equipment in the era
of COVID-19.
We have seen and heard how devastating COVID-19 can be on the body.
Read on to find how physical therapy can play a role in COVID-19 recovery.
Another sad side affect of this pandemic is the increase in cases of
child abuse and neglect. Approximately 155 children died or nearly died
this year in Pennsylvania as a result of suspected child abuse or neglect,
according to state data from Jan. 1 to July 15, which is more than all
of 2019. Read on to see how your United Way of the Greater Lehigh
Valley is trying to help.
Additionally, we have an article on Brain Aneurysms and Subarachnoid
Hemorrhage. This is a disease that mostly affects younger individuals,
with an average age of 53 but carries a high rate of mortality and many
survivors report permanent disability in strength or cognition.
And last but not least, this year the American Academy of Pediatrics
released a revision on its previous policy on the benefits and risks of
resistance training for children and adolescents. See more detail inside.
We hope you enjoy this and past issues as we add to the conversation
about how medicine and wellness can help us form strong communities
in Lehigh County. If you are interested in back issues, or just want to
