Can spas have ultrasonic liposuction machine?

Can spas have ultrasonic liposuction machine?

Portable handheld ECG monitor, where to get this?

Don't do it!!!: You are going to drive yourself nuts monitoring your heart.

If not, use the arm with the higher of the two measurements. Check it at random times. ...Read more

If you want reassurance of the baby's heartbeat, i'd rather you come in to see me than make yourself nervous with a home monitor. If you do decide to get one, remember that finding the heartbeat, especially early on, is not necessarily easy. Don't go crazy. ...Read more
