The NBHQF provides a mechanism to examine and prioritize quality prevention, treatment, and recovery elements at the payer/system/plan, provider/practitioner, and patient/population levels. The NBHQF is aligned with the NQS in that it supports the three broad aims of better care, healthy people/healthy communities, and affordable care. However, it was specifically broadened to include the dissemination of proven interventions and accessible care. The latter concept encompasses affordable care, along with other elements of care accessibility, including the impact of health disparities.

The use of other medications is still in the experimental stage. Human growth hormone has been shown to increase breastmilk production in mothers of premature infants. This is similar to what the dairy industry does by administering bovine growth hormone. The dosage used in one study was IU per kilogram per day, to a maximum of 16 IU per day for seven days injected subcutaneously. It is expensive, but preliminary research shows that this is a promising treatment. Also in the research stage is the use of thyroid-releasing hormone which has been shown to increase prolactin levels. Oxytocin nasal spray which stimulates the milk- ejection reflex, yet it is no longer widely available. If you have a special situation that seems to warrant the use of medication to increase your milk supply, consult your doctor. These medications should be used in combination with other techniques for building up mother’s milk supply, especially increasing the frequency of nursing or pumping.
A seizure is a sudden surge in neuron activity in the brain, causing a change in feeling or behavior. Phenobarbital decreases and stabilizes neuron activity, decreasing the amount of seizures your pet experiences. Neurotransmitters, or brain chemicals, control the brain activity and phenobarbital tends to act on two. GABA is a neurotransmitter that has nerve-calming properties, and phenobarital increases this neurotransmitter. Glutamate is a neurotransmitter that has nerve-stimulating properties, and phenobarital decreases this neurotransmitter.
