Humanicare - Whitestone - Hartmann

For our customers who have been purchasing Dignity incontience products for years, there are a lot of changes taking place.  So far the changes are only to the disposable products within the Dignity product line.  The changes are a  result of the Hartmann purchase of Humicare/Whitestone.

LPR (Laryngopharyngeal Reflux) or Silent Reflux

Gerd and LRP aren't necessarily age related and is common in all ages but I would like to ramble a bit about this subject.

GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) seems to be pretty popular these days. My guess is people used to say they had an ulcer when they had stomach pain. Now we know it as GERD. GERD is basically chronic heartburn, not the occasional distress but frequent heartburn. The kind of repeated Heartburn "you would actually go to a doctor to find out how to get rid of it" Heartburn.

LPR is Laryngopharyngeal Reflux often call "silent" GERD. Silent meaning the person doesn't experience heartburn. Same thing going on, they just don't feel it.
