New York, NY (PRWEB) August 23, 2013
New York Cardiovascular Associates is announcing the launch of a new public health campaign on fainting. The New York based sleep center explains that fainting can occur in a number of situations, making it important to understand what causes it and what can be done to prevent it. The center hopes the information it provides can help reduce instances of fainting and equip bystanders with strategies to react appropriately.
According to a New York Cardiovascular Associates representative, fainting is caused by a number of different situations. “Fainting may occur when a person stands in the same place for too long, experiences a sudden drop in blood pressure, hyperventilates, has low blood sugar, or gets up very quickly after lying down. Individuals can lower their risk of fainting by taking steps to reduce the occurrence of these situations.”
The sleep center is turning to social media to help provide the public with information on fainting. Individuals can find more information on this topic through the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages. This campaign will run throughout the month of August.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
