Doctor Matthew Bogard, Board Certified in Family Medicine and Board Eligible in Emergency Medicine, recently completed an in-depth hands-on course to learn the intricacies of rescuing victims of grain bin entrapment. This often happens when a farmer enters the grain bin while the unload auger is running – typically to address a plugged auger – and becomes stuck in the moving grain.
“This is an important class for any emergency medicine doctor practicing in rural areas,” says Dr. Bogard. “It was a great review of the mechanics of what happens combined with the hands-on scenario where I strapped into a harness and helped rescue a fellow classmate from a specially-constructed grain bin simulator.”
Matthew Bogard, Board Certified in Family Medicine and Board Eligible in Emergency Medicine, recently completed advanced training presented by the Iowa Bureau of Emergency and Trauma Services with an eye toward providing additional services to EMS agencies in rural locations. The single day course reviewed Iowa Code governing Emergency Medical Services, types of agencies and classifications of responders, additional resources necessary for Critical Care Transport Services, and the importance of an EMS Contingency Plan. Training was also provided regarding the Iowa EMS provider scope of practice.
Dr. Matthew Bogard published an article about the "Rising Resistance to Maintenance of Certification." The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is comprised of 24 member boards that provide "board certification" in their respective specialties: the American Board of Internal Medicine, American Board of Surgery, American Board of Family Medicine, and 21 more. Each MOMS member is likely board certified by one of the ABMS member boards and subspecialists may be double- or triple-board certified. Obtaining initial board certification requires completion of a rigorous accredited training program and passing multiple exams beyond the three USMLE Step exams necessary to obtain a medical license.
Dr. Matthew Bogard, medical doctor in Nebraska and Iowa, is excited to represent the Wyman Heights Neighborhood Association as a member of the Association leadership along with four other dedicated members of the community. Wyman Heights is a neighborhood with a proud history that dates to 1902 when local real estate investor Henry Wyman began acquiring property on a large hill north of Florence. He planned to develop an elite neighborhood which in 1925 he re-platted as Wyman Heights.
“My family owned a pharmacy in the area when I was growing up and I came to learn about Wyman Heights while delivering prescriptions, says Matthew Bogard, M.D. “I fell in love with the picturesque views of the Missouri River and the Loess Hills. Neighbors are all so friendly and supportive of each other and our neighborhood in general. I love the landscaping we maintain at the entrance and bus stop as well as the holiday decorations we place every winter.”
Matthew Bogard (Nebraska, Iowa), Board Certified in Family Medicine and Board Eligible in Emergency Medicine, started a Blog to provide day-to-day health information to families in an easily understandable form, available at https://MatthewBogardMD.blogspot.com/
In his Blog, Dr. Bogard will provide valuable information about a healthy lifestyle, exercise, nutrition, and how to support at home any medical condition for which your doctor is treating you.
Dr. Bogard explains that “in today’s doctor’s offices, nurses, staff and medical doctors are rushed and rarely have the time to answer all questions that the patients have. When patients research online, such as on the website of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), they find highly scientific information that is very hard to understand for a normal person. I thought I can fill the gap with easy-to-understand blog articles.”
Dr. Matthew Bogard frequently publishes articles about health issues that affect you, such as "Sniffle, Cough, Sniffle … Viral Upper Respiratory Infections are in the Air
Frequent hand washing is the most important way to help to prevent the spread of cold viruses. An upper respiratory infection (URI), also known as “the common cold,” is an inflammation of the upper respiratory tract caused by any one of a number of viruses. The sinuses, nasal passages and throat can all be affected. URIs are not caused by cold temperatures, but are often more common in the winter months. The cold virus is transmitted from person to person by direct contact (such as a handshake) or by contaminating surfaces that others touch and then spread to their own nose, mouth or eyes. A cold virus can also be spread when an affected individual sneezes,coughs or exhales into the air. ..."
