Critical Care Providers Should Know

In terms of the overall health of the state, Connecticut is considered by the United Health Foundation the third healthiest state in the country. The state of Connecticut has low obesity rates, low numbers of infectious diseases, a low number of smokers, and is tied with Colorado in terms of having the lowest number of people who have had a stroke.

There are some health issues that are affecting the citizens of CT, however. For example, 8% of the babies born in 2011 in Connecticut were considered to be low birth weight. This is only slightly below the national average of 8.16%. Also, 37.2% of the adults in Connecticut have reported having high blood pressure, which ranks Connecticut 21 out of 50 states.

In February of 2012, Connecticut was actively trying to reach its goal of making every hospital in the state "baby-friendly". What this means is that an organization, named Baby-Friendly USA, and recognizes hospitals around the country which are doing everything they can in order to help educate new moms. This organization makes sure that physicians and nurses are teaching new moms their options when it comes to feeding and taking care of their new infants. As of February 2012, 19% of the births in CT were at "baby-friendly" hospitals.

Some other goals that the state of Connecticut are trying to expand the reach of preventative programs intended to cure infectious diseases, educating the public on general health, and improving clinical staff performance. The Connecticut Department of Public health is also working with environmentalists in order to help improve the overall quality of life for its residents.

About Connecticut

Connecticut is the third-smallest state, located in the northeast corner of the United States, in a region known as New England. The state is almost in the shape of a rectangle. In the southwest corner, there is a panhandle extending toward New York City. Connecticut has Massachusetts to the North, Rhode Island to the east and New York to the west. One the south side of the state is a bay of water called Long Island Sound.

Although the state is small, it has many people. It was settled early in the history of the United States because of its good soil. It is located along the Atlantic Coast, which is good location for fishing and trading.

Residents argue about the highest place in Connecticut. Bear Mountain rises to 2,354 feet above sea level. Mount Frissel is higher, but the actual top of it is in Massachusetts. The southern slope of Mount Frissell is 2,380 feet, and the souther slope is in Connecticut. So, the highest mountain in Connecticut is Bear Mountain. The highest point in Connecticut is the southern slope of Mount Frissel. Connecticut has warm summers and cool winters. The Atlantic Ocean keeps the climate mild. Spring and autumn are very pleasant. The beautifully colored fall trees bring many visitors to the state in October and November.

At 407 miles (655 km), the Connecticut River is the longest river in New England. The Waters of New England's largest river, the Connecticut, rise and fall with the ocean tides. In the Connecticut River valley people do not have to go far to experience the natural wonders of Connecticut.

For residents as well as visitors, Connecticut is a wonderful state to see, savor, and get to know. It is compact enough to visit from any part, find what looking for, step into shopping districts, see the sights, enjoy lunch or dinner, and be back home. It is the place for a perfectly day trip. Connecticut's coastal communities, from Greenwich to New Haven in particular, are exceptional places to visit, loaded with specialty shops, tourist attractions, fabulous restaurants, and intriguing inns.
