Three arrested in Wednesday night shooting on Mercury Drive

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) – On October 20, 2021, Dothan Police Communications Center received a shots fired call in the 900 block of Mercury Drive.  At the time of the call, a Dothan Police Officer in the area heard the gunshots, responded to the area, and observed a silver passenger car fleeing the scene of the shooting.  The Officer initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle and a short vehicle pursuit began.  During the pursuit, a passenger of the vehicle threw a firearm from the vehicle, which was recovered by other responding officers.  Criminal Investigators were called to the scene to begin the investigation.  It was discovered the residence on Mercury Drive and a vehicle had been struck by at least one bullet.

Once the vehicle was stopped in the 900 block of E. Selma Street, one of the vehicle’s four occupants ran from the vehicle.  The three remaining passengers were detained with the vehicle.  Officer located another firearm, a rifle style weapon, inside the vehicle.   Officers were able to connect shell casings from the scene to the firearms recovered as the same caliber weapons.  The occupants of the vehicle were identified as Di’Onandre Culver (18), Jaylen Aristidle (18) and Tyquan Ford (18).

After further investigation, Dothan Police Investigators were able to connect two of the three subjects, Culver and Aristidle, with a different shooting that occurred on October 8, 2021 in the 1700 block of Alexander Driver that left a 12 year old with a gunshot wound.  Investigators have charged all three with crimes connected to the shooting on Mercury.   The Dothan Police Department wants to thank those in the community who gave information on these cases.

what to do to Stavropol residents if a mercury thermometer breaks

January 13, 09:19 CardsPhoto: IA Pobeda26

A thermometer is an indispensable tool during the period of flu and colds.

However, sometimes a mercury thermometer can be dangerous – for example, if you break it. What to do in this situation, told the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations in the Stavropol Territory.

Mercury vapor is hazardous. They can enter the human body through the mouth, skin and respiratory tract. The result is mercury poisoning, which can occur for a long time without any obvious symptoms.

If you break a thermometer, remove the mercury carefully and quickly.

Step one: ventilate the room

Open a window or vent for ventilation and close the door to the room tightly to avoid drafts that can spread mercury vapor into the room. The heating should be turned off, the same applies to air conditioners – this will slow down the evaporation.

The room must be ventilated for at least an hour, and only after that you can start collecting mercury.

Stage two: mercury collection

Before cleaning, put on shoe covers or plastic bags on your feet, gloves on your hands. The face must be protected with a respirator or a gauze mask moistened with a solution of soda or water.

Remove mercury in a tightly closed glass jar filled with a chlorine solution.

How to collect mercury from smooth surfaces?

Use sheets of paper to collect mercury balls from smooth surfaces: use one as a broom and the other as a dustpan.

Gather small balls into larger ones (they merge when they touch). You can also use a damp brush or cotton pad to collect.

How to collect mercury from fleecy surfaces?

Mercury must be collected from upholstery and carpet with a syringe or syringe.

Squeeze out the air from the syringe and draw in the mercury drop by drop, immediately releasing it into a jar of water. Small particles are best collected with adhesive tape or well-kneaded plasticine.

Mercury can be removed from the crevices with a syringe with a thick needle, as well as copper or aluminum wire. If particles get under the floorboards or skirting boards, the floor will have to be dismantled.

Step three: surface treatment

When all the mercury has been collected, clean up the spilled areas.

To do this, prepare a solution of potassium permanganate and add a tablespoon of salt and vinegar to it per liter of the mixture. Use a sponge or brush to dampen the spilled mercury and leave for 1-2 hours.

Then dilute 40 g of soap and 50 g of soda in a liter of water and wash the places where the mercury was. You also need to process the upholstery of upholstered furniture.

A chlorine bleach solution can also neutralize mercury. You need to add a liter of the product to five liters of water. After 15 minutes, the treated surfaces should be rinsed with clean water.

Mercury spills can be treated with iodine. It forms non-volatile compounds on the metal surface.

Treat surfaces with one of the products a few more times within 1-2 weeks. Do wet cleaning as often as possible and keep the window constantly ajar.

Step Four: Mercury Recycling

The collected mercury jar should be closed tightly and kept in a cool place out of the reach of children and animals.

All instruments that have been reprocessed must be collected in tight plastic bags. The same must be done with gloves, shoe covers, mask, clothing and equipment.

If mercury gets on the carpet, carefully roll it up, pack it in polyethylene and take it out to the balcony.

Where to dispose of waste?

To hand over mercury-containing waste, residents of apartment buildings need to contact the management company, which will send them for disposal to a specialized organization.

electronic or mercury, contact or non-contact

What to do?

Until recently, I thought that there was no difference in the readings of an electronic and mercury thermometer. But the readers of T⁠—⁠F sowed the seed of doubt.

It turned out that many measure the temperature with mercury thermometers. And for some, even surgeons recommend using mercury instead of electronic. And I realized that I could be mistaken all these years. In this regard, I have a few questions:

  1. Is a mercury thermometer really more accurate than an electronic thermometer, and why? If so, how accurate is it?
  2. How often do electronic thermometers show the wrong temperature? How critical is this for the patient?
  3. How much does the thermometer reading influence the diagnosis?
  4. Why do clinics and hospitals measure temperature with electronic rather than mercury thermometers?
  5. Why did Russia sign the Minamata Convention on Mercury in 2014 and promise to stop producing mercury thermometers by 2030?

Daniil Davydov

Author profile

Evgeny, modern electronic thermometers for measuring temperature under the arm and in the mouth are as accurate as mercury ones. And non-contact electronic devices are even more accurate. So you are right.

In order not to be unfounded, I will answer each of your questions with links to authoritative sources.

How much the thermometer readings influence the diagnosis

In some situations, the diagnosis directly depends on the thermometer readings. For example, a thermometer helps distinguish between a dangerous flu and a relatively harmless cold. As a rule, with a cold, the temperature does not rise above +38 °C, and with the flu it can exceed +40 °C.

How to distinguish the flu from the common cold – instructions from the American Academy of Family Physicians

At the same time, there are situations in medicine when not only the diagnosis, but also the life of the patient depends on the accuracy of temperature measurement. With dangerous neutropenic fever that occurs in cancer patients due to radiation therapy, the doctor begins treatment, focusing on the difference in thermometer readings, which is only half a degree Celsius.

What is neutropenic fever – an international reference book for doctors Uptodate

Therefore, physicians are interested in taking the temperature in the most accurate way possible. Therefore, they constantly organize scientific research in which they compare the accuracy of electronic and mercury thermometers with each other. And enough data has accumulated.

Before answering the question which thermometers are better, I will tell you what kind of devices they are and how they differ from each other.

How mercury thermometers differ from electronic ones

All thermometers that are suitable for medical use can be divided into two large groups: contact and non-contact.

Types of thermometers – Mayo Clinic

Contact thermometers measure the temperature on the surface or inside the human body: under the arm, in the mouth and anus, that is, rectally. They are mercury, alcohol and electronic.

Mercury thermometer is a sealed tube with a ball of mercury, behind which is a graduated ruler. All this is in a glass tube.

When exposed to heat, mercury expands and reaches a value that corresponds to the patient’s body temperature in approximately 7 minutes. Mercury does not stick to the walls of the flask, it is sensitive to the slightest changes in heat and gives the same readings in several measurements in a row.

The principle of operation of a mercury thermometer – Journal of Notes on Biomedical Engineering

Mercury thermometers are considered very accurate – for a long time it was the gold standard for measuring temperature. However, the thermometer can break – as a result, the person who uses it risks not only injuring himself with fragments, but also being poisoned by mercury vapor. Therefore, as a replacement for mercury, alternative thermometers have been developed: alcohol and electronic.

The thermometer broke, what should I do?

Alcohol thermometers look very similar to mercury thermometers, but inside they do not have mercury, but tinted alcohol. Alcohol does not respond as well to temperature changes as mercury, and in addition, it moistens the walls of the flask. Because of this, not all alcohol reaches the marks that correspond to the desired temperature. Therefore, alcohol thermometers are considered less accurate than mercury ones.

An electronic thermometer is a plastic case, in the tip of which a thermistor is hidden – a metal plate coated with nickel, cobalt or copper oxide. When the device is turned on, a small battery inside the thermometer begins to pass current through it.

The principle of operation of a digital thermometer – Malaysian Family Doctor magazine

The higher the temperature around the thermistor, the worse it passes an electric current through itself. This signal goes to the processing unit, which processes the data and displays the temperature on the screen. High-quality thermistors are no less sensitive to temperature than mercury. So a serviceable and high-quality electronic thermometer should show a temperature no worse than mercury. “The only caveat is that, unlike mercury, which can be stored almost forever, an electronic thermometer works properly only for 3-5 years. After that, it needs to be replaced.

This is a contact mercury thermometer. The price of this on Yandex Market is 295 R Electronic contact thermometer. The price in Citylink is 310 R And this is a mercury-free Galinstan thermometer. These have a green stripe. The price on Yandex Market is 390 R

Non-contact thermometers. Such devices measure the temperature at railway stations and in some shopping centers. There are no mercury non-contact thermometers. These are electronic devices, but they do not work like contact electronic thermometers.

Types of non-contact thermometers – Cleveland Clinic

The tip of the non-contact ear thermometer must be inserted into the ear because it measures the temperature at the eardrum. The non-contact forehead thermometer measures the temperature in the temporal artery, which runs under the scalp, so you can simply point it at the forehead.

Outwardly, all non-contact thermometers resemble a plastic gun, inside of which there is a sensor that is sensitive to infrared radiation, that is, to heat. The sensor converts heat rays into an electrical signal and transmits it to the processor, which processes it and displays the readings on the display.

Non-contact thermometers are more complicated than contact ones. In fact, this is a full-fledged electronic gadget like a mobile phone.

Unlike a pyrometer – a technical device that is designed to change the temperature from -50 to +380 ° C with an accuracy of ± 1.5 ° C in factories and construction sites – medical non-contact thermometers convert infrared radiation in a very narrow range, which corresponds to human body temperature: from +34.0 to +42.9°C with an accuracy of ±0.2-0.3 °С.

A medical non-contact thermometer must be registered as a medical device and receive a registration certificate – RU. You can see if the thermometer has a switchgear on the Rospotrebnadzor website.

Is a mercury thermometer really more accurate than an electronic one

Which is more reliable: mercury or electronic thermometers. When electronic thermometers first appeared, they were really inferior in accuracy to mercury thermometers. For example, a 1986 research report states that an electronic thermometer was wrong by as much as half a degree 9-23% of the time.

In 1990, the difference between the devices still persisted: the researchers concluded that if accuracy is important, then it is better to use mercury rather than electronic thermometers to measure temperature under the arm. However, after 15 years, the situation has changed markedly. In 2003, a pediatrician from the University of Alberta reviewed thermometers and concluded that electronic thermometers had caught up with their mercury counterparts.

Is there a significant difference between a digital and glass mercury thermometer — Achievements magazine in nursing”

Diagnostic accuracy of digital, infrared and glass mercury thermometers in measuring body temperature – Journal of Systematic Reviews and Meta-analysis

In 2016, practical experience was supported by an experiment. Pediatricians from Ethiopia selected 96 children under 5 years old with a temperature and measured their temperature several times, first with a mercury, then with an electronic thermometer under the armpit of the right and left hands. No difference was found between them.

The big review of 2020, in which the effectiveness of digital, infrared and glass mercury thermometers, was finally dotted. The review authors analyzed 46 studies involving more than 12,000 patients with fever. They came to the conclusion that electronic and mercury thermometers, which measured the temperature under the arm, practically do not differ in accuracy.

Which is more reliable: contact or non-contact thermometers. Non-contact thermometers appeared later than contact ones, but doctors were immediately very interested.

The fact is that the temperature on the surface and inside the body is noticeably different. Under the armpit and in the mouth it averages +36.7 °C, and in the anus and on the eardrum it averages 0.6 °C higher.

The temperature in different parts of the human body varies significantly – Uptodate

At the same time, when people eat, drink and go to the toilet, the temperature in the mouth and anus also fluctuates. But on the eardrum, the temperature is more stable, because it is supplied with blood by the same artery that carries blood to the thermoregulation center in the brain.

Theoretically, a doctor who can measure the temperature in the ear will receive the same accurate information about body temperature as the patient’s brain. When it comes to a disease such as neutropenic fever, this information is simply priceless. And since non-contact devices are best suited for measuring temperature in the ear, they began to be studied very carefully.

Already in 2009, doctors found that non-contact ear thermometers provide the same accurate information as rectal measurements. The measurements turned out to be more accurate than when the temperature was measured in the mouth and under the arm.

Comparison of infrared ear, oral and axillary thermometry – European Journal of Nursing Oncology

In 2016, data appeared that the forehead infrared thermometer performs worse than the ear and even worse than contact thermometers that measure the temperature in the mouth and under the arm. The authors of the study came to this conclusion by measuring the temperature of 237 patients in four different ways and comparing the result with the temperature in the nasopharynx – this method is considered very accurate, but inconvenient.

The large review of 2020, which I wrote about above, rehabilitated the forehead non-contact thermometer and confirmed the advantages of the ear thermometer. Ear thermometer proved to be the most accurate. The second place was taken by a forehead thermometer, and the third and fourth places were shared by mercury and electronic contact thermometers.

Why clinics and hospitals use electronic thermometers to measure temperature

There are two reasons why hospitals use electronic thermometers.

It’s safer. There is no mercury in electric thermometers. And they are made of plastic, not glass, so they are less likely to be damaged when dropped.

Benefits of electronic thermometers over mercury ones – Clinical Methods: History, Physical and Laboratory Studies, third edition

It’s more convenient. Electronic thermometers provide results in just 10-20 seconds. And to measure the temperature with a mercury thermometer, you have to wait at least 7 minutes.
