Obstructive sleep apnea and hypertension

Systemic hypertension is more common among individuals who have untreated obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) than among those who do not.

A prospective cohort study that followed 1889 individuals for a median of 12 years found a higher incidence of hypertension among those with untreated OSA than among those whose OSA was treated with CPAP or those who did not have OSA.

(Marin JM, Agusti A, Villar I, et al. Association between treated and untreated obstructive sleep apnea and risk of hypertension. JAMA 2012;307:2169).

India harbours over 55% of fresh global leprosy cases

Pune: After declaring the country free of leprosy in 2005, the central government is now grappling with fresh cases of the stigmatised disease that have surfaced in the country, accounting for a staggering 55.5 per cent of the new global infections. Of the 2,28,474 new leprosy cases detected in the world in 2010, the figure for India stood at 1,26,800, which accounts for an alarming 55.5 per cent, according to S.D. Gokhale, president, International Leprosy Union (ILU) (India). “If the union and state governments do not take serious note of this fact (the figures quoted were confirmed by union health ministry in a reply given in the Rajya Sabha on March 13, 2012) and initiate effective steps to eradicate leprosy, the problem would become more acute,” he said. To address the problems being faced by Leprosy Affected Patients (LAP), the ILU has decided to constitute “LAP’s Human Rights Cell” to take their collective and individual grievances to the Human Rights Commission, Mr. Gokhale who is also associated with the movement for the protection of rights of the aged in India, said. The ILU, which held a three day conference in Pune this week, attended by activists working for LAPs in various States, has prepared a memorandum enlisting 14 demands to redress their grievances, Mr. Gokhale said. The demands pending with the union and state governments, include formulation of a comprehensive socio-economic rehabilitation policy for empowerment of LAPs, uniform pension and its enhancement to Rs. 2000 per month per LAP, and provision of civic amenities to self-settled colonies of LAPs.

Enhancement’ products come under FDA scanner

Mumbai: After carbonated “energy” drinks , tobacco and related products, the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) is now cracking the whip on “enhancement” products often clandestinely sold through agents, claiming that these goods are cheating the public and even adversely affecting the health of the consumer. Goods that claim to increase height, decrease weight, improve libido and many balms that promise to cure joint ailments have come under the FDA scanner. The administration has initiated action against print and electronic media that advertised such products besides the manufacturers. Over the past few months, it has issued 67 notices to television channels, newspapers and magazines to withdraw the advertisements. Four other cases will be heard in the court. “As per the Drugs and Magic Remedies Act, 1954, those groups or individuals displaying objectional advertisements are liable to be punished. The manufacturers of these goods are out to dupe people. These products are not even freely available in the market and can be purchased only through agents, which itself makes them all fishy,” FDA commissioner Mahesh Zagade said. Zagade said the FDA should have taken action earlier. “Many of these goods contain harmful ingredients that don’t enhance anything but harm the consumers. The law existed even earlier; now the FDA will implement it more vigorously.” (Source: Indian Express, Aug 01 2012)

India facing shortage of 10 lakh MBBS doctors: Azad

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Jammu: The country is facing a shortage of 10 lakh MBBS doctors, which is affecting healthcare delivery system in rural areas, Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad on Thursday said. “There are seven lakh doctors in the country against a requirement of 17 lakh, leaving a deficit of 10 lakh doctors. This is directly affecting the healthcare delivery system in rural areas,” Azad said.
Speaking at a public meeting at Kilhotran in Gandoh tehsil of Doda district, Azad said though the Centre was providing adequate funds for construction of hospitals, there was shortage of MBBS doctors. According to the minister, to provide better healthcare in rural areas, the syllabus of MBBS doctors is being amended so as to ensure trainee doctors serve in villages for one year before getting the MBBS degree.

Barrett's and esophageal adenocarcinoma get new guidelines

An international group of almost 100 experts has developed consensus statements on the best ways to diagnose and treat esophageal precancer and early cancer, with their statements published in the August issue of Gastroenterology. Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EA) has become more common in the last few decades among patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE), yet EA remains rare, and little agreement has been reached on how to treat or prevent the deadly cancer, the researchers write. Many of the statements focus on having good endoscopy equipment, use of endoscopy rather than open surgery, and the importance of tissue sampling. For BE and EA endoscopy, physicians insert a thin tube with a video camera and necessary instruments into the throat, which avoids the need for chest surgery. Eight of the statements, summarized below, are directly applicable to the clinic today: (Source: Medscape)

  • specimens from endoscopic resection are better than biopsies for staging lesions,
  • it is important to carefully map the size of the dysplastic areas,
  • patients that receive ablative or surgical therapy require endoscopic follow-up,
  • high-resolution endoscopy is necessary for accurate diagnosis,
  • endoscopic therapy for HGD is preferred to surveillance,
  • endoscopic therapy for HGD is preferred to surgery,
  • the combination of endoscopic resection and radiofrequency ablation is the most effective therapy, and
  • after endoscopic removal of lesions from patients with HGD, all areas of BE should be ablated.

Cost not biggest factor in choice of physician

Patient or user experience has never been more important in the healthcare industry than now. A PricewaterhouseCoopers report found that customer experience and not price is the overriding factor when it comes to choosing a healthcare provider. In fact, only 8% rated price as the No. 1 purchase driver in healthcare decision-making, compared with 69% in the airlines/leisure industry and 55% in retail. The survey of 6,000 consumers across several industries formed the basis of the new report from PricewaterhouseCoopers, which found that the "consumerism movement gained traction as individuals were asked to spend more of their own money on services and products such as insurance premiums, deductibles, and copayments."

FDA declines new indication for methylnaltrexone

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has declined approval of methylnaltrexone bromide (Relistor, Salix Pharmaceuticals, Ltd, and Progenics Pharmaceuticals) for treatment of opioid-induced constipation (OIC) in adult patients with chronic, noncancer pain. Currently, methylnaltrexone bromide in the United States is indicated for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation in patients with advanced illness who are receiving palliative care, but only when response to laxative therapy has not been sufficient.

Newer pertussis vaccines may not work over time

The protection provided by acellular pertussis vaccines (DTaP) as a first dose may fall short of that provided by first-dose whole-cell pertussis vaccines (DTwP), which were phased out in the 1990s because of higher rates of adverse events, an Australian study showed. (Source: Medpage Today)

(Dr Kaberi Banerjee, IVF expert, New Delhi)

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a common condition that affects women during the reproductive years. It occurs when normal tissue from the uterine lining, the endometrium, attaches to organs in the pelvis and begins to grow. This displaced endometrial tissue causes irritation in the pelvis that may lead to pain and infertility.

    An Inspirational Story

(Mr Vivek Kumar)

A hospital story

A story that should inspire all. The Power of One…

On 13 April 1971 Shri Sadhan Chandra Mistry, aged 35 years a vegetable vendor (a total non-entity) in the obscure village of Hanspukur, District South 24-Parganas, West Bengal, died of a very common and minor ailment, only because he could not get access to any medical attention whatsoever. He left behind his illiterate wife Subhasini (23 years then) with two sons and two daughters four to eight years in age. Naturally the family plunged into utter poverty and Subhasini was forced out of her home within one month of her husband’s death, to sell vegetables in that hamlet market. That day, while she sat under the scorching sun selling vegetables and worrying about her children, she took a vow that one day she will build a hospital in that very village so that no poor villager would die for want of medical attention.

Her fellow vendors and every person who heard of her vow just laughed and made fun of her. How can she build a hospital, they jeered, when she cannot even mend her own thatched hut? Plus she has to feed a family of five and marry two daughters; all humbug and pure day dreaming must have lost her mind was the considered conclusion by the village elders.

However, day in and out, Subhasini went on selling vegetables silently and looking after her children never allowing the fire in her frail body to douse even for a moment. After persevering for twenty full years, ultimately she could start a clinic at her home for poor people. She managed to coax a doctor into coming to her village every week. And week after week, while tens of poor patients got medical attention from this lone clinic in the region, Subhasini became the most popular household name in her village. Now her fellow vendors and all others started respecting her. That was enough of a support for her.

In the meantime, her children grew up. The two daughters were married off. The eldest son chose to be a labourer, working in agricultural fields. Her other son, the youngest of the lot, Ajoy Mistry was identified by Subhasini to carry on her mission. He successfully completed his secondary education and passed the All India Medical Entrance Test. Aided by the German Scholarship, he joined Calcutta Medical College where he completed his medical course. He worked hard as he studied, ran around from friends to well wishers to any person/organization he had access and managed to raise Rs.50,000 for his mother’s mission.

In 1993, Ajoy Mistry authored the trust deed of Humanity Trust with his mother Subhasini Mistry as the co-founder trustee. On 5th February 1995, the foundation stone for the Hospital was laid and on 9th March 1996, the hospital was inaugurated and opened to public. Within one year, the trust could raise ten times the initial money to complete the first structure of the hospital. Soon, more donations followed and today, Subhasini Mistry can say with pride that she has fulfilled her pledge made to her husband two and half decades earlier.

The will and spirit of a woman who defied social norms and obstacles all along to establish the first hospital in that region The Humanity Hospital underscores a saga of dedication, commitment, vision, ambition and unflinching determination of a resource less illiterate village woman in acute penury and distress.

Humanity Hospital is certified and registered as a Hospital under the West Bengal Clinical Establishment Act. of 1950, managed by Humanity Trust formed on 4th March 1993. In the year 2000, in appreciation of their service to humanity and poor people in particular, both Subhasini Mistry and Ajoy Mistry were honoured and named as the prestigious Paul Harris Fellow by the Rotary International. Today, despite the financial crunch to meet recurring expenses, the Hospital provides best services to poor and underprivileged sections of the society.

Subhasini Mistry still sells vegetables in Kolkata market to sustain her family.

Nobody realizes that all the wealth they have created cannot be taken by them beyond the hour of death.

    Legal Question of the Day

(Dr MC Gupta)

Q. Does running of a clinic by a physician at his residence amount to commercial activity?

Ans.

  1. This question has recently been answered by the Delhi HC in DR. D.V.CHUG versus STATE & ANR., Delhi HC, decided by SURESH KAIT, J., on 2-7-2012.
  2. Para of this judgment is reproduced below:

    “5. The issue arises in the instant petition, whether, running of clinic from the residential premises, would come in commercial activity”.
  3. After a detailed discussion of law and decided cases, the court observed as follows:

    “11. On considering the submissions of ld. counsel appearing for the parties, I am of the considered view that the professional establishment of a doctor cannot come within the definition of commercial activity. Commerce is that activity where a capital is put into; work and risk run of profit or loss. If the activities are undertaken for production or distribution of goods or for rendering material services, then it comes under the definition of commerce. The word ‘profession’ used to be confined to the three learned professions; the Church, Medicine and Law. There is a fundamental distinction between the professional activities and commercial activities”.
  4. SUMMARY—Running of a clinic by a physician at his residence amounts to a professional, not a commercial activity.

Never change your originality for the sake of others, because no one can play your role better than you. So be yourself, because whatever you are, YOU are the best.

 
    Lab Update

(Dr Navin Dang and Dr Arpan Gandhi)

Also known as: LD, Lactate dehydrogenase, Lactic dehydrogenase, Total LDH and LDH isoenzymes.

This test helps identifying the cause and location of tissue damage in the body and to monitor its progress. Increased levels of LDH and changes in the ratio of the LDH isoenzymes usually indicate some type of tissue damage. Raised levels of LDH may be seen with:

  • Cerebrovascular accident (CVA, stroke)
  • Drugs: anesthetics, aspirin, narcotics, procainamides, alcohol
  • Hemolytic anemias
  • Pernicious anemia (megaloblastic anemia)
  • Infectious mononucleosis (Mono)
  • Intestinal and pulmonary infarction
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Pancreatitis
  • Lymphoma or other cancers

Low and normal levels of LDH do not usually indicate a problem. Low levels can be seen when a patient ingests large amounts of vitamin C.

Diabetes and Dental Screening

Periodontal disease is a common complication of diabetes and itself contributes to poor glycemic control, said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India. Severe periodontal disease has been shown to be an independent risk factor for mortality from ischemic heart disease and nephropathy.

Annual dental examination is recommended in both dentate and non-dentate diabetic patients. In diabetic patients, control of blood sugar is the key. If blood sugar is uncontrolled, then this carries a higher risk of

  1. Tooth decay (cavities). The mouth naturally contains many types of bacteria. The higher the blood sugar level, the greater the supply of sugars and starches and the more acid that damages the teeth.
  2. Early gum disease (gingivitis). Diabetes reduces the ability to fight bacteria, which can cause more plaque to build up on the teeth.
  3. Advanced gum disease (periodontitis). Left untreated, gingivitis can lead to a more serious infection called periodontitis, which destroys the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. Periodontitis tends to be more severe among people who have diabetes because diabetes lowers the ability to resist infection and slows healing.
  4. Patients with diabetes mellitus should also receive influenza flu vaccination yearly and pneumococcal vaccination. The pneumococcal vaccine should be repeated once after 65 years of age if the initial vaccination was prior to this age.
  5. Tetanus and diphtheria vaccinations should also be updated.
  6. Diabetes is considered equivalent to known coronary heart disease in predicting the risk of future cardiac events. Smoking cessation is essential for patients who smoke. Cardiovascular morbidity can also be significantly reduced with aggressive management of hypertension (goal blood pressure less than 120/80 mmHg), cholesterol (goal LDL less than 80 mg/dL) and use of aspirin (80 mg/day) in patients over age 40 years, and in younger patients with additional cardiovascular risk factors.
  7. Aspirin alone may not be the answer as a Japanese research has shown that low-dose aspirin does not reduce the risk of cardiovascular events in people with type 2 diabetes.
