White County Medical Center - What's New and News Releases, 8 Feb 2006 [cached]
Dr. Marty Thomas and Dr. Edward McAdams, pediatricians at Medical Center West, recently started Reach Out and Read for their patients at the clinic.
"I'm very excited about this program," said Dr. Thomas.
"There are several ways that people in White County can help with the Reach Out and Read program at Medical Center West," said Dr. Thomas.
SEARCY, November 20, 2006 - Dr. Marty Thomas, a pediatrician at Medical Center West, recently began a smoking cessation program in her practice to help the families of her patients recognize and recover from the harmful effects of tobacco products.
The program currently involves free tobacco counseling appointments with the families of Dr. Thomas' pediatric patients on Tuesdays of each week.Deanna Barnett, an LPN who assists Dr. Thomas, said that even though the program has only recently started, the response has been very encouraging.
Dr. Thomas said she first became familiar with a similar smoking cessation program when she started her pediatric residency at Arkansas Children's Hospital in 2003.
"In my training at Children's, one of the biggest impacts we found on our patients was the fact that their parents smoked," said Dr. Thomas."Second-hand smoke can create many health problems.It can cause intrauterine growth retardation in infants before birth, asthma, increased ear infections, allergies, etc."
According to Dr. Thomas, studies have shown that 70 percent of smokers want to quit and 40 percent of them have tried to quit for at least one day in the past year.
"The biggest problem is that people don't know how to quit," said Dr. Thomas."They don't know what's out there to help them, they don't have resources and they know it's expensive to try to stop.I think that giving them tools and letting them know that they can be successful with the resources we provide is going to make a big impact on their tobacco habits."
Dr. Thomas and Barnett said they were trained by Debbie Rushing, a ­tobacco intervention counselor at Arkansas Children's Hospital.
"We learned about the various methods available for people to quit the smoking habit, such as lozenges, inhalers, nose sprays, medications, etc.," said Dr. Thomas.
Dr. Thomas said that the toxic effects aren't always just from smoking cigarettes.
"It's also from tobacco itself," said Dr. Thomas."People think chewing tobacco is so much better than smoking but it still can cause many of the same things."
Dr. Thomas said 25 percent of residents in White County smoke tobacco products.
"This is also about the same rate for my pregnant patients," said Dr. Thomas.
