4 Your Health: Treating migraines through the ears; quick response times when treating heart attacks

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- Doctors are treating heart attack patients faster than ever. 

A new report reveals U.S. hospitals have set a record for how quickly they open blocked arteries, averaging under one hour for the first time.

More than 93 percent of patients now undergo angioplasty within the recommended 90 minutes of arriving at the hospital. Just a decade ago, less than half of patients were treated that fast. 

Delayed care significantly increases the risk of heart damage or death.

Relief from migraines

Stimulating the ear canals with alternating currents of warm and cool water could help prevent migraines. British researchers tested the technique that activates balance organs in the inner ear on 81 migraine patients.

After three months of daily treatments, patients reported less head pain and fewer migraine days each month.

    With "Will & Grace" returning to NBC after an 11-year hiatus, it's only natural to wonder if "Seinfeld," which aired from 1989 to 1998, will make a comeback, too. Think again.
