Dr. Diego Maldonado Provides Innovative New Treatment for COPD

D

iego Maldonado, MD, a pulmonologist at Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital and family man, comes from a long line of medical professionals. His father and uncle are physicians and his mother is a nurse. His son is a pre-med major in college and his eldest daughter is an architect who designs hospitals and medical facilities. One could say medicine is in his blood. Originally from Ecuador, Dr. Maldonado and his family moved to the United States to expand their opportunities.

When he has spare time, you’ll find Dr. Maldonado enjoying the outdoor life in Vero Beach. In addition to playing tennis 2-3 times per week, Dr. Maldonado can be found fishing on the river with his children. “My son and younger daughter love to fish. We like to take the boat out on the river. Vero Beach is a beautiful place,” he noted. And he didn’t find this place by accident. It was Dr. Maldonado’s longtime friend, local cardiologist, Dr. Arley Peter, who suggested visiting Vero after moving to the area himself. “Dr. Peter came here and loved it. My wife and I wanted to raise our family in a small place that is family oriented, so we moved to Vero Beach. It’s very difficult not to like this area.” Traveling the world has always been important to the Maldonados. “We love to learn about culture, food and the arts,” he said. Both Dr. Maldonado and his son are PADI certified in recreational diving and have completed 20-30 dives around the world in places like Cozumel, Mexico; Hawaii; the Dominican Republic; and Ecuador; as well as locations around Florida. Fellowship trained in pulmonary medicine and critical care, Dr. Maldonado has first-hand knowledge when treating patients with complications from diving. “We see patients who have had diving accidents and treat them very safely. For me, diving became not just a hobby, but also a professional interest in the sense that

“This innovative lung treatment offers patients living with COPD an opportunity to significantly improve their overall quality of life.” I can treat these divers at our hospital if they experience pulmonary complications.” A hard worker who appreciates a challenge, Dr. Maldonado studied at University of Miami- Jackson Memorial Hospital and is board certified in internal medicine, critical care medicine and pulmonary disease. He is particularly proud of Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital’s pulmonary services expansion. “Over the last several years, we have developed interventional pulmonary services, a lung cancer program, a pulmonary hypertension program and, most importantly, we work very closely with the doctors in the community. Now we are looking at a goal of achieving lung center of excellence status,” he enthused. “The Cleveland Clinic integration is a dream come true and will continue to benefit our community in so many ways.” Dr. Maldonado, in collaboration with physicians at Cleveland Clinic Florida in Weston, recently began offering a new procedure designed to help patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or advanced emphysema. The FDA-approved procedure, Endoscopic Lung Volume Reduction (eLVR) is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment option that allows patients to breathe easier

after endobronchial valves are placed in their lungs. Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital is the first hospital on the Treasure Coast to offer this new treatment option for patients with advanced respiratory conditions, and Dr. Maldonado is excited about leading this new initiative. “This innovative lung treatment offers patients living with COPD an opportunity to significantly improve their overall quality of life,” said Dr. Maldonado. “We are excited to be the first hospital in our area to provide eLVR treatment. This is a perfect example of Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital striving to provide patients with the latest innovation and services.” Dr. Maldonado offers services in pulmonary medicine, including interventional bronchoscopy and medical thoracoscopy for the diagnosis and management of lung cancer and pleural disease. He also diagnoses and treats other pulmonary conditions such as asthma, emphysema and COPD, pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis and sleep apnea. Dr. Maldonado’s office is located at the Health and Wellness Center at Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 772-794-5800.

Fishing Forecast Winter fishing in our area can be fantastic but does require some change in tactics. The biggest factor being to slow down your retrieve, because the inshore fish get cold and lethargic. Fishing later in the day after the sun warms the water increases feeding activity. Cold weather drives many fish like snook, trout, and redfish to deeper, warmer water at night and then the warming sun brings them into the shallows. Incoming tides are usually the best fishing in the inlets and Indian River. Fish deeper areas on cloudy days and be prepared to deal with lots of wind as the cold fronts pass by. Look for darker bottoms in the shallows because the water warms faster in these areas. Winter brings more redfish into our area and sight fishing is at its best when the cold nights kill off the suspended algae, clearing up the water. Long casts and a delicate presentation are usually required to avoid spooking fish in clear, shallow water. Look for redfish and large trout around the mangroves and islands. Also expect black drum and sheepshead to increase in winter within the Indian River, with sheepshead numbers peaking in February. Snook fishing is closed in January but reopens in February. These fish are very temperature sensitive, so cold water makes them unhappy. As the weather warms in March, look for snook on the flats early and late in the day but otherwise along the mangroves. Snook and tarpon fishing improves in the Sebastian River in March. April is one of the best months of the year for snook and big females move onto the flats chasing mullet. Trout fishing in winter can be good. The largest trout of the year show up in February and stay into April. While the

aguidefishingservice.com 772-559-1422 school trout are in deeper areas, the big girls are in shallow water, except in the coldest of weather. Use larger baitfish for the big trout, but please release these “breeder fish� that produce 1.2 million eggs, versus the 100,000 eggs produced by smaller ones. All large trout are female. Pompano fishing is hot in winter, with good numbers around the inlets and in the Indian River. While February is great, March is usually the peak time of year. These fish can be deep or shallow, with goofy jigs and sand fleas the best baits. The beaches are good when the seas are not too rough. Shrimp, sand fleas, and clams will catch pompano, bluefish, whiting, mackerel, and a variety of other species. Goofy jigs and small spoons are also very effective. Within several miles of the beach you will find spinner sharks, kingfish, and cobia. Big jacks, bonito and tarpon start showing in April. Tight lines, Captain Mark Yanno

One Man’s Passion

“It is hereby ordered that Pelican Island in Indian River in section nine, township thirty-one south, range thirty-nine east, State of Florida, be, and it is hereby, reserved and set apart for the use of the Department of Agriculture as a preserve and breeding ground for native birds.” March 14, 1903, Executive Order, President Theodore Roosevelt

T

hese are the 48 words that would become the foundation of the entire National Wildlife Refuge system and proof that one person’s passion can become a national legacy. Paul Kroegel was born January 9, 1864 in Chemnitz, Germany. At age seventeen he moved to Florida and settled with his father in Sebastian. They made their home on an Ais Indian shell mound, known as a midden, on the west bank of the Indian River. The Kroegel homestead overlooked Pelican Island, the last rookery for brown pelicans on the east coast of Florida at the time. Here, Kroegel took a keen interest in the pelicans and grew to love them. He also saw and became increasingly disturbed by the slaughter of these and other birds by plume hunters for their highly valued feathers. Without state or federal laws to protect the birds, Paul took matters into his own hands. He began to sail out to

Pelican Island with gun in hand to stand guard over the birds, protecting them from hunters. His efforts caught the attention of other conservationists who began lobbying for the birds. By 1901 the lobbying efforts began to pay off when the State of Florida passed legislation to protect non-game birds. In 1902, Paul Kroegel was made game warden for the American Ornithologists’ Union. He did his best to discourage hunters from the island and was aided in his efforts by Dr. Frank Chapman, a prominent Ornithologist and figure in the Audubon Society and the Union. Chapman, who was also fighting plume hunters in other areas, eventually convinced President Theodore Roosevelt to sign the executive order above and, on April 1, 1903 Paul Kroegel was appointed warden at a salary of $1 a month. The Executive Order established the first National Wildlife Refuge in the United States, and Paul

18

www.InsideTrackAlmanac.com


Kroegel became the first National Wildlife Warden. There are now 560 refuges and wetland management districts in the United States comprised of 150 million acres of land and water. There is at least one national wildlife refuge in every state and territory within an hour's drive of most major cities. The system provides habitat for more than two thousand species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish. More than 380 threated or endangered

plants or animals are protected by the wildlife refuges. Millions of migrating birds use the refuges as stopping points along their long journeys between summer and winter homes. All of this because of one man who cared about some pelicans on a little island right here in our own Indian River Lagoon.

About the Refuge

T

oday Pelican Island NWR is part of the Everglades Headwaters National Wildlife Refuge Complex and, like all NWRs, is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Pelican Island provides habitat for more than 30 different species of birds and, during the migratory season of November through March, several thousand birds roost on the island nightly. The 3-acre island rookery itself is not open to the public but can be easily viewed from the 5,400 acres of protected water and land that comprise the entire refuge. The refuge area located off US Highway A1A a few miles north of Wabasso Beach Road (CR 510) is free and open to the public from dawn until dusk daily. Visitors to the refuge can explore three different walking trails. The Centennial Trail is a threequarter mile round trip that includes a boardwalk with planks bearing the names, home states and established year of every wildlife refuge in the country. The scenic boardwalk through mangroves leads to a large covered

Volume 25 • Issue 1

observation tower equipped with highpowered scopes for excellent viewing of the island’s inhabitants. The Joe Michael Memorial Trail and Bird’s Impoundment Trail are each three-mile loops with salt marsh habitats and an observation platform into the marsh. While there is no visitor's center, there are self-guided trail signs with abundant information as well as QR codes. Guided tours aboard golf cart trams are offered between December and March every Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and binoculars and field guides are provided. Pelican Island NWR is a magical place full of wonderful plant and wildlife and is a must-see for those who enjoy nature. The Refuge affords visitors and residents the privilege of seeing and being a part of this tiny island that gave birth to the vast national treasure that is our National Wildlife Refuge System.

Recycling Isn’t Easy, But It’s Worth the Effort

here is no shortage of conversation around recycling and the common gripe is ubiquitous: “Why can’t they make it easier?” Here’s the deal: recycling is not easy, and nobody ever promised it would be. In this moment, it would serve everyone well to remember the conventional wisdom that few things in life that are worthwhile are easy. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Making

a mess is a cinch; cleaning it up is not. There is no “they,” only us, and it is up to all of us to do our part to help clean up the mess we have made. As advances are made in recycling technology, it’s important to remember that it’s not perfect and modern recycling still has some limitations. So, pay attention and you just might help save the planet.

Remember! We only have one planet and it is up to all of us not only to do our part but to do it the right way. Our earth is worth it.

Happy Birth 2020

is a year of monumental milestones at the Atlantic Classical Orchestra. Celebrating their 30th Anniversary, the ACO enters its third decade of performing classical music from time-honored great masters and today's emerging young artists along the Treasure Coast. In 1989, founder Andrew McMullan started with a dream and a vision which in turn has became a reality, delighting audiences from Vero Beach to Palm Beach Gardens. The Atlantic Classical Orchestra is in good

company, as 2020 marks the 250th anniversary of the infamous Ludwig van Beethoven's birthday. One of the most widely recognized and greatest composers of all time, Beethoven served as a bridge between the Classical and Romantic era styles. Since his death, Beethoven has become an icon of the Romatic period having influenced many other Romantic composers after him, as well as popular culture today. The 2020 Atlantic Classical Orchestra Masterworks Series will feature a work by Beethoven on each of its programs. January begins where Beethoven began with his Symphony No. 1. While this symphony pays tribute to his esteemed predecessors, Mozart and Hayden, the beginning of Beethoven's own compositional style was very apparent, making the Viennese of the time sit up and take notice. In February, the ACO brings Elena Urioste to the stage performing the only concerto Beethoven ever wrote for violin. In Beethoven's

www.InsideTrackAlmanac.com


hday Beethoven Violin Concerto, he rewrote the rules for what a violin concerto could be. It is grand in scale and continues to be the Everest of concertos two centuries after it was written. Beethoven wrote just one opera, with at least five overtures, of which only four remain. Leonore, which would later be renamed Fidelio, received a new overture each time it was revived during Beethoven's lifetime. In March, the ACO will perform Leonore Overture No. 3. When originally performed, it was considered to have given away too much of the plot and was ultimately replaced with another overture. This moving, expansive, and dramatic piece may be the opera's loss but is certainly the symphony's gain. The ACO closes out it's celebratory season with Beethoven's rollicking Symphony No. 7, which Richard Wagner declared "...The Symphony is the Apotheosis of the Dance itself: it is Dance in its highest aspect..." Filled with elements of dance and rhythm, this is a symphony the audience will feel through body and soul.

To learn more about the 2020 Season at the ACO and more about Beethoven, visit AtanticClassicalOrchestra.com. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling the Box Office at 772-460-0851. Arrive 45 minutes prior to each performance for exciting insights into the evening's program with Maestro David Amado.

Treasure Coast Birding Guide

I SAW IT!

F

lorida's Treasure Coast is home to a multitude of bird species and part of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. Birding is fun! Use this handy checklist to learn about and keep track of birds that you are certain to see while exploring the area.

☑ ☑ ☑

Roseate Spoonbill

Sometimes mistaken for a flamingo, this gregarious wading bird is easily recognized for its bright pink plumage and big spoon shaped bill. There is a growing population of these beauties on the Treasure Coast due to rising water levels in the Everglades. Best seen around inland freshwater wetlands.

Snail Kite

This medium-sized bird of prey feeds almost exclusively on apple snails and, in the U.S., is found only in Florida. The species is locally endangered due to prolonged drought which affects its primary food source. Lucky observers may get a glimpse at inland marshlands and lakes.

Wood Stork

This hefty wading bird sports a football shaped body, scaly featherless head and long curved bill that are dead giveaways to its Jurassic ancestry. Their plumage is mostly white with black tail and wing feathers. They roost in trees and hang out around brackish wetlands, ponds and lakes.

Great Blue Heron

The largest of the North American Herons. At an average of four feet tall with a wingspan of around six feet, they are magnificent to see in flight. Named for their blue-gray plumage they have yellow bills and black head feathers. They adapt to both salt and freshwater environments and are abundant along the Indian River Lagoon.

Sandhill Crane

Florida is home to two species of these enormous cranes which stand around four feet tall. The Greater visits from the north in the winter and the Lesser is a year-round resident. Almost always seen in pairs, they are gray in color with dark red crowns. Residents stick mostly around freshwater ponds and lakes.

Osprey

These large raptors can look like juvenile bald eagles with their white bellies and variegated brown underwings. They are actually a hawk found around salt water and feed primarily on fish which can commonly be seen clutched in their talons. Their nests are big stick structures often built on poles, channel markers and dead trees over open water.

Great Egret

This is the snow-white version of the Great Blue Heron. Other than color they’re nearly identical size and habitat and can observed in many of the same places. Some smaller birds can be mistaken for the Snowy Egret, but their yellow bills and black feet make them identifiable.

White Pelican

These migratory, all white pelicans, are twice the size of their brown cousins and breathtaking to behold. They are often referred to as the “original snowbirds” for their snow-white color and seasonal arrivals and departures. See them in large groups along the lagoon waterfront in Sebastian.
