I have a pre-standing Long QT interval (heart). Is is safe to be inside an indoor ice arena where CO, nitrogen dioxide (NO2), etc. present in air?

Don't take anything without the advice of your pharmacist or cardiologist. I'm not aware of the ambient air playing a role in precipitating a dysrhythmia. ...Read more

We had a raccoon die in out koi pond (like the size of a knee deep kiddie pool) if it had rabies is the water now contaminated with rabies?
Lots of VERY REMOTE: possibilities here: first, you don't know if the raccoon had rabies. If he did, and he drooled or his saliva contaminated the water, the rabies virus might be present there in a VERY small concentration. Then to be infected this water would have to get directly in a person's eyes, nose, mouth or open wound. HIGHLY UNLIKELY. I would clean out the koi pond and not worry any more. Good wishes:) ...Read more
