It's also quite common for the poorly designed power pin/socket to fail. the day in and day out tugging and pulling on the cable does the damage.

Here's a video that talks about the problem and a cure. . .

The batteries in modern day laptops are generally State-of-the-art or close to it.. they last much longer than a while back. now that said they seldom deliver much more than a few hours, with a couple being considered good... Also you are right, anything connected to the PC, like the tablet, will indeed draw more power from the battery and quicken the life of it. for a few tips try these... It is beneficial to put the laptop on charge whenever it is not being transported. Also make sure your Battery Charging/Handling software is set correctly for optimal charging etc. Ensure your laptop uses the screen saver & power down the hard drive when not being used. The MOST important thing is actually when charging the battery the FIRST time, ensure you leave it on for at least the time stated in your manual.. this is VERY important to start with a, Correctly, Fully Charged battery .

Is there a doctor to a person who can't hear


Hi there,

Have a blessed day.

When it comes to diagnosing and treating ear problems, doctors basically have three levels of "ear expertise." They are from least to most-primary care physicians (PCP), ear, nose & throat doctors (ENTs) and otologists/neurotologists. Each has their own niche.
1. Medical Doctors/Primary Care Physicians (MD/PCP) Often your first contact with the medical community is with a standard Medical Doctor (MD), often called a Primary Care Physician (PCP), General Practitioner (GP) or Family Doctor. These doctors have no specialized training in treating ear problems. However, you often need to go to one of these doctors in order to get a referral to an ear specialist such as an ENT or otologist.
Family doctors normally treat ear conditions of the outer ear and ear canal such as removing ear wax or treating infections in the ear canal. For problems in the middle and inner ear, they should immediately refer you to the appropriate ear specialist.
2. Ears, Nose & Throat Doctors (ENT) The middle level of "ear expertise" is the Ear, Nose & Throat doctor, commonly referred to as an ENT. The fancy term for these doctors is otolaryngologist (OH-toe-lar-ing-JOL-uh-jist) or sometimes by the ******-twisting name of otorhinolaryngologist (OH-toe-RYE-noe-lar-ing-JOL-uh-jist). (When you break this name down, it is easier to understand and pronounce. Oto-ear, rhino-nose and larynx-throat). Sometimes these doctors are called EENTs (eyes, ears, nose and throat doctors).
ENTs are medical doctors that have taken further training and specialized in problems of the ears, nose and throat.
Despite the name, ENTs do not spend a lot of their time working with ears. One otologist told me that he estimated the average ENT only spent about 5% of his time with ears. Thus you cannot expect them to be experts on many kinds of ear problems.
ENTs generally specialize in problems of the middle ear-typically middle ear infections and medical problems of the middle ear. This may include surgical procedures for things like otosclerosis, or removing middle ear tumors such as cholesteatomas. They may also perform CI surgery.
3. Otologists (Neurotologists) At the top of the pile is the otologist (oh-TOL-uh-jist) and neurotologist (NEU-roe-oh-TOL-uh-jist). Otologists and neurotologists are medical doctors who have trained as ENTs and then completed additional studies is the sub-specialty of otology (or neurotology). These are the real ear experts and are the doctors that know the most about inner ear problems.
If you experience sudden hearing loss and there is no obvious reason, these are the doctors that most likely will be able to help you. In fact, otologists/neurotologists are the only doctors (as a whole) that seem to recognize the true emergency nature of sudden hearing loss. Unfortunately, there are not very many otologists/neurotologists in the country.


Hope it helps.

Thank you for using fixya.

LMR Update: Discharge Rx Printing Increases Efficiency/Patient Safety SAFE AND EFFICIENT: To either write an electronic prescription or gain access to check the discharge medications, clinicians can simply visit the patient’s LMR, select the medication section and choose the new tab entitled, “discharge.”
Thanks to a web-based Longitudinal Medical Record (LMR) application developed at Partners HealthCare, clinicians now have the capability of printing patient prescriptions at the time of discharge from BWH.
This new function comes at a critical time when BWH is engaged in a statewide patient safety initiative geared to build awareness of medication safety, including transitions of care.
“For busy physicians, this new tool offers a faster, clearer and less error prone practice for discharge prescriptions,” said Robert G. Goldszer, MD, MBA, associate chief medical officer, who explains that this tool helps the hospital improve quality and safety
at a point in the hospital stay when a lot of information is being communicated to the patient. Additionally, this new tool allows for Partners ambulatory clinicians to easily check what medications the patient was sent home with by checking the patient’s electronic medical record.
To either write an electronic prescription or gain access to check the discharge medications, clinicians can simply visit the patient’s LMR, select the medication section and choose the new tab entitled, “discharge.” All of a patient’s discharge medications will be posted on that screen once the electronic discharge summary has been signed.
