Pest Notes are peer-reviewed scientific publications about specific pests or pest management topics for California's residential and community audiences. Pest Notes contain information on how to identify the pest, its biology and habitat, life cycle, damage and impact, and include multiple management suggestions. Each publication includes colorful photographs or illustrations to help readers with identification and finding solutions. Pest Notes are available to view online and or download as a PDF.
Double-sided A 4 card, at-a-glance information on a number of diseases. Shows how each disease is spread, early symptoms, time between exposure and sickness, and for how long children and adults should be excluded from early childhood centres, school, or work.
Examinees who download SAGE from the Internet and take it at home are instructed to bring their completed test to their primary care physician. Scoring instructions and explanations for physicians are below:
Your health care provider may also provide you with a vaccine receipt when you're getting vaccinated. This document can have many formats but doesn't include a QR code. It's recommended that you download a COVID-19 proof of vaccination that includes a QR code as soon as it's available.
It's a best practice to carry a proof of vaccination that has been downloaded less than 6 months ago. This will help to ensure the document has all of the latest updates and upgrades integrated in both the display information and the QR code. Make sure you download an updated proof of vaccination after receiving your most recent dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Cal/OSHA has many educational materials and resources available. Publications can be downloaded from our webpage or they may be picked up at a local Cal/OSHA office if available. Please check with the local Cal/OSHA office first by calling to ensure the publications are available. California workplace postings are available and can be downloaded at www.dir.ca.gov/wp.asp.
Anorectal malformations comprise a wide spectrum of diseases, which can affect boys and girls, and involve the distal anus and rectum as well as the urinary and genital tracts. They occur in approximately 1 in 5000 live births. Defects range from the very minor and easily treated with an excellent functional prognosis, to those that are complex, difficult to manage, are often associated with other anomalies, and have a poor functional prognosis. The surgical approach to repairing these defects changed dramatically in 1980 with the introduction of the posterior sagittal approach, which allowed surgeons to view the anatomy of these defects clearly, to repair them under direct vision, and to learn about the complex anatomic arrangement of the junction of rectum and genitourinary tract. Better imaging techniques, and a better knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the pelvic structures at birth have refined diagnosis and initial management, and the analysis of large series of patients allows better prediction of associated anomalies and functional prognosis. The main concerns for the surgeon in correcting these anomalies are bowel control, urinary control, and sexual function. With early diagnosis, management of associated anomalies and efficient meticulous surgical repair, patients have the best chance for a good functional outcome. Fecal and urinary incontinence can occur even with an excellent anatomic repair, due mainly to associated problems such as a poorly developed sacrum, deficient nerve supply, and spinal cord anomalies. For these patients, an effective bowel management program, including enema and dietary restrictions has been devised to improve their quality of life.

The 2022 update of the Global Strategy for Asthma Management and Prevention incorporates new scientific information about asthma based on a review of recent scientific literature by an international panel of experts on the GINA Science Committee. This comprehensive and practical resource about one of the most common chronic lung diseases worldwide contains extensive citations from the scientific literature and forms the basis for other GINA documents and programs.
Under the South Australian Public Health Act 2011, medical practitioners and diagnostic laboratories are required to notify SA Health of cases suspected of having or diagnosed with specified infections or diseases. Exceptions apply to chlamydia, COVID-19, seasonal influenza, and respiratorysyncytial virus (RSV) which medical practitioners are not required to notifyunless specific conditions apply (see How to notify). 781b155fdc
