Critical Care Providers Should Know

There are many issues in which Kansas is performing above average; per capita there are fewer people living with diabetes, fewer infants who are born underweight, and fewer instances of stroke. However, there are also some health issues that the people of Kansas need to improve including obesity, infant mortality, and cardiovascular deaths.

  • 8.4% of the adults in Kansas have diabetes

In January of 2012 the Kansas Department of Health and Environment launched a new website called Kansas Health Matters (www.kansashealthmatters.com). This website is designed to aid medical staff, as well as the general public, in determining which counties and cities in the state of Kansas are suffering from various health issues. This will help people pinpoint exactly where diseases start and how they spread, so the medical community is better equipped to combat them.

Throughout 2011, the governor of Kansas signed laws that recognize various illnesses and bring them to the forefront of resident's minds. For example, November in Kansas is now Prematurity Awareness Month. This program is designed to slow down the number of babies that are born too early. October is also breast cancer awareness month in Kansas during when women are encouraged to get a mammogram so breast cancer can be detected and treated early.

About Kansas

Kansas is the 34th state, admitted to the Union on January 29, 1861. Kansas is famously known for being the setting for Dorothy's home in the Wizard of Oz, and also as Clark Kent's (Superman's) boyhood home of "Smallville." Kansas is a highly productive agriculture state, one of the biggest producers of wheat, sorghum, and sunflowers.

The most well-known cities are the state capital of Topeka, and the largest city of Wichita. The Sunflower State boasts the birthplace of American legends Amelia Earhart and President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The biggest problem for Kansas is the fact that it is prone to developing tornadoes, and Supercell thunderstorms. Kansas has been reported to have more F5 tornadoes than any other state (F5 being the most dangerous and deadly cyclones possible). Kansas also reports having over 50 tornadoes each year.

Kansas attracts people from all over the country to see its very quirky and unique attractions. Amusing sites include the world's largest ball of twine in Cawker City, the replica of the largest hailstone in Coffeyville, and the first "man-made" diamond on display at the McPherson Museum-Vaniman Mansion. Other unique things to do include attending the annual spinach festival, where a giant spinach salad is made in a pool, tossed with pitchforks, and going over to Goodland to take in a giant replica of one of Vincent Van Gogh's most famous paintings.

The cost of living in Kansas is very low when compared to the national index of 100. Overall, the cost of living index in the state is 87. Food is 91, utilities are 87, and miscellaneous costs are at 98 (this includes clothing, dining out, repairs, entertainment, and other goods and services).

Accommodations are typically quaint and inexpensive, from bed & breakfasts, country inns, to hotels and suites in the bigger cities. Housing varies from small farmhouses to large mansions, apartments, and townhouses in the cities.
