Parents-to-be 'should stop filming ultrasounds'

The Society and College of Radiographers says there are an increasing number of reports of patients trying to make recordings.
But it warns sonographers could be distracted, and miss vital signs of problems in the developing baby.
It is down to individual hospitals to decide if recordings should be allowed.
The college, which says that developments in technology mean the ways in which such recordings could be made are bound to increase, has now issued guidance to its members on how to deal with patients' requests to film scans.
It says that, as well as the risk of diverting the sonographer's attention at the point when they most need to concentrate, there could be legal complications if an abnormality is recorded by the scan, but not reported or acted upon.
Many hospital trusts allow parents-to-be to take away stills from the scan, usually for a charge.

Legionnaire's Disease Outbreak Warning In North Thailand

What is Legionnaires' Disease?
The first instance of Legionnaire's disease in Thailand was found in 1995, when a British tourist was found infected in Pattaya. Later, in 1999 three Britons were found infected in Chiang Mai and then in 2006, six tourists were found infected in Phuket, Injai Wongrattanasathien said. There has been a significant increase in the number of patients in the North, though the figures cannot be revealed as it would hurt tourism, Injai said.

To control and prevent infections, hotels and business establishments have been urged to keep their airconditioning and water system clean, and for people - especially the elderly and smokers - to wear facemasks when entering contaminated sites.

The symptoms of Legionnaire's disease are similar to flu, though the patient could die from severe lung infection within three weeks if treatment is not sought right away, he said.
