In US only 25% hypertensive patients gets treatment

If this is the situation in the US, what will the figure be in a country like India? Following are the US statistics.

  • According to Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) more than 5.5 crore adults over the age of 18 were treated for hypertension in 2008 in USA.
  • According to the American Heart Association (AHA), more than 7.6 crore adults have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, which is the most common cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of stroke and kidney failure, and a major cause of heart attack. This means about 2 crore people who have been diagnosed with hypertension are not being treated for it.
  • As per CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, more than half of 7.6 crore people diagnosed with high blood pressure did not have controlled disease. Most high blood pressure feels fine and think treatment is unnecessary. Symptoms develop only when the organ damage occur.
  • Over 60% of those over 65 were treated for hypertension in 2008.
  • Only 33% of those in the 45 to 64 age group were treated for hypertension.
  • Just 5% of adults younger than 45 were treated for hypertension in 2008.
  • Slightly more women received treatment than men, but the cost of treatment did not differ between the genders.

High cholesterol women catch up with men

MUMBAI: City doctors warn that the notion of women being less prone to cardiac problems needs to change fast. Now, a survey by a city–based laboratory has found that the possible underlying cause of rising heart ailments could be alarming cholesterol levels in women. Metropolis laboratories released data on cholesterol levels of 17,379 men and 15,255 women who had got themselves tested between January 2009 and July this year. A whopping 36% men and 33% women were found to have at least one abnormal cholesterol parameter or undesirable cholesterol and triglycerides presence in their blood stream. But what is most worrisome is that women seem to be fast catching up with men in terms of high cholesterol levels. Doctors say this calls for a detailed analysis as to how women are showing higher cholesterol levels despite the protection of estrogen (the primary female hormone). The survey revealed how 55.7% women in the 25–45 age bracket had abnormally high cholesterol in comparison to 43.4% men. Also, out of the 3,586 women found to have abnormal cholesterol levels, around 1,225 had very high cholesterol. Further, the numbers reflected how more women had abysmally high level (56.5%) of bad cholesterol, and an equal percentage were on the verge of tipping over. (TOI, Sep 28, 2011)

Six enterovirus clusters spark CDC warning

The CDC is warning clinicians that a rare enterovirus caused six clusters of respiratory illness – including several deaths – from 2008 to 2011. Three of the clusters, involving 39 people, occurred in the U.S., the agency said in the Sept. 30 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report; another 56 people were affected in Asia and Europe. More than half of the cases in the six clusters occurred in children under age 5. The pathogen is human enterovirus 68 (HEV68), which has epidemiological and biological similarities to human rhinoviruses. It was first isolated in 1962 and has been reported only rarely since then, the CDC said

Cytisine more effective than placebo in a randomized trial in smoking

In a 740–person trial conducted in Poland, 8.4% of those assigned to cytisine, a partial agonist at nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, remained abstinent through the one–year follow–up period compared with 2.4% of the placebo group (P=0.001), reported Robert West, PhD, of University College London in England, and colleagues. It did not help much to define abstinence more loosely as not having smoked during the final week of follow-up, according to their report in the Sept. 29 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

What is the absolute risk of acute heart attack after sex?

Sexual act is a transient trigger that increases risk of heart attack for only a two hour period. The absolute increase in risk is very small.

A 50 year–old man with no cardiac disease with an annual baseline risk of heart attack of one percent would increase his annual risk of heart attack to only 1.01 percent from weekly sexual activity.

A person with a high annual risk for a heart attack of 10 percent would increase the annual risk to only 10.1 percent from weekly sexual activity.

    An Inspirational Story

(Dr Anupam Sethi Malhotra)

Pencil: I’m sorry. Eraser: For what? You didn’t do anything wrong. Pencil: I’m sorry because you get hurt because of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you’re always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time.

Eraser: That’s true. But I don’t really mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even though one day, I know I’ll be gone and you’ll replace me with a new one, I’m actually happy with my assigned job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad dear.

This conversation between the pencil and the eraser is very inspirational.

Parents are like the Erasers & Children are the Pencils.

They are always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way, they get hurt and become smaller/older, and eventually pass on. Though their children will eventually find someone new (spouse) but parents are still happy with what they do for their children and will always hate seeing their precious ones worrying or sad.

May the Erasers live longer & the Pencils write good things.

Weakness in heart attack therapy identified

Scientists didn’t have a plausible research–based answer until now, according to the UCSF researchers. In a paper published this month in the scientific journal Science Translational Medicine, researchers offer an explanation of why a gap exists been the success of human trials and rodent experiments. Researchers use bone marrow from young, healthy donor rodents to treat mice that had heart attacks. However in humans, bone marrow cells came from the patients themselves –– typically older –– after they suffered heart attacks.

"It’s very important to consider the disease, whenever you think about treatments that involve returning cells into the same person from whom they were taken," said the paper’s senior author Matt Springer, PhD, associate professor of medicine in the UCSF Division of Cardiology and UCSF Cardiovascular Research Institute. "The very disease you’re trying to treat might actually cause a problem for those cells, and that seems to be the case here. "Heart attacks are very complicated, and are hard to treat even with pharmacology and interventional therapies," said Xiaoyin Wang, MD, lead author, and an associate research specialist at the UCSF Cardiovascular Research Institute. "It’s difficult to get reasonable and realistic results to heal heart attacks.

    Malaria Update

AC Dhariwal, Hitendrasinh G Thakor, Directorate of NVBDCP, New Delhi

How is malaria diagnosed?

If a microscopy result cannot be made available within 24 hours in Pf predominant areas, RDT should be used for diagnosis, which is simple and can be done by any healthcare providers in their clinic. If the RDT is found negative, then the slide is to be sent for microscopy. If it is positive, the patient is treated for falciparum malaria. Mixed infection cannot be ruled out in such cases, but the risk is low.

In areas, where the risk of falciparum malaria is very low, it is not cost–effective to do RDT in every patient with fever. To meet this challenge, the country programme is recently planning to introduce bivalent RDT which will not only be useful to detect both Pv and Pf cases at the field level, but also reduce the load of microscopy service. If such tests are available in private set up in any area, the treatment provider should use that service for confirmation of diagnosis and the species–specific treatment should be provided for malaria on confirmation only.

(Dr Sudhir Gupta, Additional Prof, Forensic Medicine & Toxicology, AIIMS)

Plasma transfusion is beneficial in gravely injured cases

  • The plasma donations can be done much more frequently than whole blood donations even up to twice a week. This is because the red blood cells, which take so much time to replace, are separated from the plasma and injected back into the plasma donor in saline solution.
  • Whole blood refers to blood containing all its components, including red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and so on. "Plasma" can refer either to the yellowish fluid of blood in which the cells are suspended, or to the blood after red blood cells have been removed.
  • In the cases of mismatch between Donor and Recipient, the plasma can be given to a recipient with an incompatible group much more safely than red blood cells, since the antibodies in the plasma are quickly diluted when transfused into circulatory system
  • In case of trauma/serious injuries resulting in massive ongoing loss of blood, plasma can be transfused to restore the volume of the recipient’s blood and to stop bleeding because of its high concentration of clotting factors. Hemophiliacs, who do not clot well, are frequent recipients of plasma.
  • Whole blood is rarely used and medically required for transfusions. Rare exceptions are for sickle cell disease and heart surgery, in which the blood loss can be several units.
  • The red blood cells have blood group antigens that cause illness and even death has been known to occur on many occasions when types are mismatched. Plasma contains antibodies for the antigens proteins in red blood cells that trigger an immune response.

Who should not donate blood?

All cannot donate blood said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal President Heart Care Foundation of India and MTNL Perfect Health Mela.

Here is an updated list as to who cannot donate blood

  1. People with coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, arrhythmia, significant cerebrovascular disease, or heart failure
  2. People with any active lung disease impairing gas exchange.
  3. Persons who have undergone recent surgery in the absence of blood transfusion until healing is complete and full activity has been resumed.
  4. Ladies who are pregnant are deferred during pregnancy and for six weeks after delivery.
  5. Persons with seizure disorders are acceptable provided that they have had no seizures within the past 12 months with or without medications.
  6. The minimal age for donation is generally 16 to 18. Most blood centers do not impose an upper age limit for donor eligibility.
  7. Blood is not collected from persons who are febrile at the time of donation, who state that they do not feel well, or who are taking systemic antibiotics.
  8. A donor with a history of a solid organ tumor should be deferred and will be eligible to donate only if he/she has been symptom–free and considered to be clinically cured for a defined time period.
  9. Persons with a history of blood cancer are permanently deferred.
  10. Some drugs may pose a risk due to their demonstrated cancer producing potential at low plasma concentrations. One should not donate blood for one month after taking isotretinoin and finasteride, six months for dutasteride, three years for acitretin, and permanent for etretinate.
  11. Persons should not donate if they have taken bovine insulin (risk of variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD) transmission) or human growth hormone derived from pituitary glands (risk of iatrogenic CJD).
  12. Persons who have received hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG) or an unlicensed vaccine are not allowed to donate for one year.
  13. Most donors are also temporarily deferred if they are taking warfarin, heparin, or another anticoagulant.
  14. Collections of platelets for pheresis should not occur from donors who ingested aspirin, aspirin–containing drugs, or feldene in the previous 48 hours or from donors who have taken clopidogrel or ticlopidine in the previous 14 days.
  15. One should not donate blood if one has HIV infection or AIDS or in case of men having sex with men, IV drug users, commercial sex exchangers, receiving clotting factor concentrates for hemophilia or other clotting disorders.
  16. One should not donate blood for one year if he/she has had sex in the past one year with a person who has HIV infection or AIDS; a prostitute; a person who currently or previously used intravenous drugs; for women: a man who has had sex with another man; a person receiving clotting factor concentrates.
  17. Persons with a history of viral hepatitis after age 10 are permanently deferred.
  18. Persons currently or previously testing positive for HBsAg are permanently deferred.
  19. Persons with a history of close contact with someone who has viral hepatitis are deferred for 12 months following their last potential exposure
  20. Persons who have received a blood transfusion are deferred for 12 months.
  21. Deferral is not required when the donor's history is based solely on a positive serologic test result (i.e, anti–HBc or anti–HBs) that indicates past exposure to HBV.
  22. Receiving a tattoo or body piercing within the last 12 months has also been included on the donor questionnaire, due to concerns about hepatitis transmission. Some blood centers will accept donors with body piercing, provided that the procedure was performed with sterile, single use equipment. Donors with tattoos or permanent makeup are deferred for 12 months after the exposure unless the application was performed in a state that has a regulatory body that licenses tattoo parlors.
  23. Donors with a history of malaria are deferred for three years after becoming asymptomatic.
  24. Travelers to a malaria endemic area are deferred for one year after their return to the United States (provided they have not had malarial symptoms).
  25. Immigrants from or residents of malarial endemic countries, defined as living in that country for more than five years, are deferred for three years after their departure from the endemic country based upon the premise that such individuals may have partial tolerance to malarial parasites, thereby resulting in the delay of malarial symptoms beyond one year.
