Recent murder of a doctor by the husband of a patient

On Tuesday evening, the husband of a pregnant woman, who died due to alleged negligence during surgery by a lady anesthetist of ESI hospital, murdered the treating doctor in Tuticorin district of Tamil Nadu.

This is a matter of national shame and the time cannot be more apt for the medical community to unite for their safety. In most States, "Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss to the Properties Act" has been passed by the respective Governments. In Tamil Nadu, the Tamil Nadu Medicare Service Persons and Medicare Service (Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss to Properties) Act 2008 has already been passed and should have been invoked by the Police at the first instance of violence by the patient’s relations. The Government only registered an FIR under section 302 IPC but should also have booked the case under Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss to Properties Act 2008.

I am surprised that there was a strike or a protest against this case only in Tamil Nadu. All the respective medical associations in the country should have responded aggressively to this incident and pressurized the Government of Tamil Nadu and the Centre to implement this law all over the country in every State and also to expedite the trial of such cases so that others do not dare to indulge in such types of acts.

About the case

On December 30, Mahesh from Aavudaiyaarpuram in Tuticorin (30 years) brought his wife Nithya (24 years) with 24 weeks’ pregnancy to ESI hospital at Beach Road where Dr. K. Sethulakshmi served as anesthetist cum medical officer. The Doctor found that Nithya’s 6–month old fetus had died in the womb and suggested to do a surgery to remove the dead fetus for safety of the life of the mother. During the surgery, Nithya developed HELLP syndrome (Hemolytic anemia, Elevated Liver enzymes and Low Platelet count), a life–threatening complication in later stages of pregnancy. She was transported to a nearby private hospital but died on the way.

Issues

  1. Was the assault on the doctor justified?
    No, it’s illegal and against the law.
  2. Was there a medical negligence?
    Only an enquiry can tell. Prima facie HELLP syndrome has high mortality.
  3. Can an anesthetist operate?
    Both yes and no. Yes in emergency, if she is trained, she has done a house job in gynecology and she has been operating, in emergent situations, if gynecologist is not available and only after a full informed consent.
  4. The why she did not transfer the patient to nearby hospital in time for surgery?
    This is one question which needs to be investigated.

What is HELLP syndrome?

  • HELLP syndrome is hemolysis with a microangiopathic blood smear, elevated liver enzymes, and a low platelet count
  • It develops in 1 of 1000 pregnancies
  • It also develops in 10 to 20% of pregnancies with severe preeclampsia/eclampsia.
  • Most cases are diagnosed between 28 and 36 weeks of gestation.
  • Most present with pain and tenderness in the mid epigastrium, right upper quadrant, or below the sternum.
  • Many present with nausea, vomiting, and malaise
  • Hypertension and proteinuria may be present in 85% cases.
  • Characteristic schistocytes are seen on blood smear.
  • Indirect bilirubin is raised along with a low serum haptoglobin concentration (≤25 mg/dL).
  • Platelet count <100,000 cells/microL.
  • Serum LDH >600 IU/L or total bilirubin >1.2 mg/dL.
  • Serum AST >70 IU/L.
  • The outcome is generally good
  • Serious complications such as abruptio placentae, acute renal failure, subcapsular liver hematoma and retinal detachment may occur. If they occur, one must immediately deliver.
  • Pregnancies ≥34 weeks of gestation should be delivered
  • Pregnancies < 34 weeks of gestation: One may like to deliver after a course of glucocorticoids to accelerate fetal pulmonary maturity
  • For gestations < 30 weeks with an unfavorable cervix, one can go for cesarean delivery
  • Dexamethasone does not accelerate resolution of laboratory abnormalities or reduce the risk of maternal complications.

Can an anesthetist do LSCS?

  1. An anesthetist is an MBBS.
  2. An MBBS is a graduate in surgery and hence he/she cannot be legally denied the right to perform surgery.
  3. But in today’s scenario one will have to apply the Bolams’ law.
  4. He/she can operate provided it’s an emergency; or has adequate training; or has been performing LSCS regularly; or no qualified gynecologist is available/accessible at that time and required infrastructure is available and that to after proper informed consent.
  5. AP Medical Council guidelines: "What Can an MBBS Doctor do:–
    1. Can perform Minor Surgical Procedures for which he is trained in MBBS Course and Houseman Ship.
    2. He can do Deliveries and its related procedures as trained.
    3. He can do National Programmes like Tubectomies & Vasectomies.
    4. In emergencies if a qualified surgeon is not available in the near vicinity as a life savings measures he can do first aid and a Surgical Procedure based on his experience.
    5. He should not do Elective Major Surgical procedures and the care should be taken to refer to a nearby Hospital where a Surgeon/Gynecologist available.
      (http://imaapstate.blogspot.com/2010/12/can–mbbs–doctor–do–surgery.html)
  6. In Surinder Kumar (Laddi) and Anr. V. Dr. Santosh Menon and Ors. 2000;(III) CPJ 517, the Punjab State Consumer Commission also held that there is no bar against an MBBS performing a Caesarean section merely on the ground that the doctor does not have a qualification in Gynae–Obs.

1.96 lakh to take AIEEE in 2nd yr of online test

MUMBAI: The numbers of students opting for the computer–based All India Engineering Entrance Exam (AIEEE) has jumped from a mere 4,900 last year to around 1.96 lakh this year. However, as part of the Central Board of Secondary Education’s (CBSE) move to encourage more students to opt for the computer–based test this year, it did not have any centres for paper/pen test (offline exam) in 22 major cities in the country, including Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Kolkata. Several students who are not confident about the computer–based testing have now opted for exam centres in neighbouring smaller cities or satellite towns in order to avoid it. AIEEE is one of the largest entrance exams conducted across the country by CBSE, with more than 10 lakh students aspiring to take the test every year. While last year, around 11.13 lakh students applied for the exam, this year the numbers of applications received by the board is around 13 lakhs, almost a 16% rise. This was the first year that CBSE made online application compulsory for all offline and online takers of examination. In the second year of implementation of the online exam, the total numbers of students taking the online exam has risen from 4% last year to 15% this year of the total numbers of applications.

Globally, 200m use illicit drugs

NEW DELHI: One in 20 people aged 15–64 years, or 200 million are using illicit drugs worldwide annually. A global study on illicit drug use, to be published in the medical journal "Lancet" on Friday, says there are 125–203 million cannabis, 14–56 million amphetamine, 14–21 million cocaine and 12–21 million opioid users. In south and south–east Asia, an estimated 54 lakh people use cannabis, 28 lakh opioid and another four lakh cocaine. According to World Health Organization, 250,000 deaths worldwide are due to illicit drug use compared with 2.25 million due to alcohol. Years of life lost due to drug use (2.1 million) were more than those recorded for alcohol (1.5 million), because drug deaths generally affect younger people, while alcohol deaths (and tobacco deaths) tend to affect middle–aged and senior citizens. Opioids – heroin and morphine and their synthetic analogues like methadone and fentanyl have been shown to have all four types of health effects – have the highest risks of dependence affecting perhaps one in four of lifetime users and are major contributors to premature death due to overdoses as well as accident, suicide and violence, HIV/AIDS and hepatitis.

(Dr Kaberi Banerjee, IVF expert, New Delhi)

How do counseling and support groups help those couples who are suffering from infertility?

Infertility at any age is a stressful experience, and counseling or support groups can be helpful. The intrusive nature of infertility testing and treatment can make you feel stressed or out of control. Feelings of sadness, anger, blame, guilt, depression, and loss are normal and can be overwhelming at times. Discussing your concerns with your partner, medical staff, and supportive people in your life is important. It may be helpful to join a support group or see a therapist.

    An Inspirational Story

(Dr GM Singh)

How to conquer the fear of failure?

When we have to start a new venture, we often feel fear of failure. Before exams, we feel fear of low marks or may be failure! At times when we have to decide between two or more choices, we feel afraid. Fear of failure is natural and overcoming this fear is natural too!. People feel the fear of failure at different stages in life but there is good news.

Good news: We all can overcome the fear of failure. The question: How can we overcome this fear of failure?

We can learn from those people who successfully overcame the fear of failure and have shared their experiences with us. One of the persons who has shared the technique of overcoming failure is an Olympic athlete Guy Drut. I would like to narrate a story from Mark Mc Cormack international best seller: What they don’t teach you at Harvard Business School which guides us on one of the most important tools to overcome the fear of failure.

This is true story of a French Olympic player Guy Drut. In summer of 1976, he was the only hope of France for win in Olympic track–and–field medal. Naturally, he was afraid. He had the burden of carrying nation’s pride on his shoulders. One of his friends Jean Claude Killy advised him how to overcome the fear of failure.

Killy’s advice was very simple.

Killy advised Drut to repeat a few words in his mind over and over again. Killy told Drut that he was the only one who can use his body and mind for peak performance. He should keep on saying to himself: "I have done every thing to get ready for this race and if I win, every thing will be great. But even if I don't win, my friends will still be my friends, my enemies will still be my enemies and the world will still be the same"

Drut says that he took Killy's advice to his heart. He repeated this sentence in all his practice exercises, during breaks and in between the semi–finals and finals. He kept saying the sentences to himself over and over and it blocked out every thing else. Drut says: I kept on repeating it to such an extent that I was still repeating it when I went up to receive the gold medal!

We all can get benefit of this advice. Our self-talk reflects our expectancy from our lives. Positive self talk is more than a positive mental attitude. It is an evidence of determination in our future.

Physical activity in children promotes a lifetime of skeletal health

Physical inactivity is correlated to dozens, if not hundreds of diseases and conditions, with emphasis on obesity, heart disease and stroke. Generally, not as much attention is paid to osteoporosis, a degenerative bone disease, although much research cites the importance of weight–bearing exercise in maintaining bone health. Recently, researchers at the College of Public Health and Human Sciences Oregon State University published a review of studies on exercise and bone health, and they draw some interesting new conclusions on the subject.

They reviewed studies that took place in schools to determine the effectiveness of interventions on bone health in young children. They found that such interventions led to optimal benefits in bone development, mineralization, and structure. In their review, they show evidence that unlike adults, who must engage in regular physical activity to maintain bone mass, children who are active at an early age are more likely to benefit from improved skeletal health for the remainder of their lives. The authors conclude that weight–bearing exercise is critical for bone health and should be started at an early age; they also advocate that exercise should be prescribed to children in order to prevent osteoporosis.

    Legal Question of the Day

(Dr MC Gupta, Advocate & Medico–legal Consultant)

Q. What are the legal aspects of the AMRI, Calcutta, tragedy?

Ans.

  1. The relevant facts are that a fire broke out on 9 Nov. 2011 in the basement of the 5–star hospital in Calcutta known as the Advanced Medical Research Institute. The number of those dead may exceed 100. The fire started in the basement where large amounts of diesel/furnace oil were stored. None of the deceased died of burns. All died of suffocation due to intense smoke filling up the fully air–conditioned, almost hermetically sealed 5–star hospital building.
  2. The hospital was apparently registered under the West Bengal Clinical Establishments Act, 1950, and was functioning under a licence given by the Registering Authority/Government after necessary scrutiny and payment of fees as per the requirements of the Act.
  3. The incidence is a clear example of government malfunctioning/corruption whereby licences are given in disregard of legal safety requirements for ulterior motives. The responsibility for this incident apparently lies with the government.
  4. The victims have, inter alia, the following remedies/courses of action:
    1. They should form an association like the "Uphar Cinema Victims Association" in Delhi, which went up to the Supreme Court against a similar fire tragedy in a cinema hall in Delhi.
    2. The "AIMR Fire Victims Association" can approach the following:
      1. The police, with a request to register an FIR for gross negligence etc.
      2. The Calcutta High Court for necessary relief, including strict action against the guilty officials of the following:
        1. The Appropriate Authority established under the West Bengal Clinical Establishments Act, 1950.
        2. The owners of the AMRI hospital.
        3. The concerned accreditations agencies like the NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals) or the QCI (Quality Council of India) and various other agencies that grant ISO 9000 certification etc. because it can be pleaded that the patients chose the hospital as it was certified (wrongly) by the certifying agencies.
    3. Victims’ families can also approach the Consumer Commission against the hospital and the government authorities for compensation.

How much liver can one donate ?

One can donate 60–70% of his/her liver volume. For example a normal adult with, for example, 1500 gms of liver could donate 900–1000 gms of his/her liver. This is provided, the liver is not fatty. If the liver is fatty then an extra 10–20% of liver is left behind with the donor.

Situation: An adolescent came with pre pubertal gynecomastia of more than six months duration.
Dr Bad: It’s normal.
Dr Good: This is persistent pre pubertal gynecomastia.
Lesson: If the patient is an adolescent and has a normal general physical and genital examination, then it is quite likely that he has pubertal gynecomastia (seen in 25% cases). Re–evaluation at 6–monthly intervals will show whether the condition is persistent or not; improvement supports the initial impression of a pubertal cause.

The Reluctant Spender

After being away on business, Tim thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift. "How about some perfume?" he asked the cosmetics clerk. She showed him a Rs 50.00 bottle. "That’s a bit much," said Tim, so she returned with a smaller bottle for Rs 30.00.

"That’s still quite a bit," Tim complained. Growing annoyed, the clerk brought out a tiny Rs 15.00 bottle.

"What I mean," said Tim, "is I’d like to see something really cheap."

So the clerk handed him a mirror.

 
    Medicolegal Update

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

Doctor is neither a detective nor a curtain between injured/sick alleged criminal and police or judiciary.

  • The primary and absolutely transparent duty of a doctor/hospital is to provide medical services to sick and injured patient may be an alleged criminal to save his health/limb and life without any discrimination.
  • when the medical care records is required for judicial/police investigation the records becomes medico–legal in nature and the same may be required to testify under oath in the court of law by treating doctor.
  • The doctor should acquire the habit of making a careful note of all the facts observed by him with exact time and date.
  • doctor should examine the facts which come to his knowledge in his special medical man capacity, draw his conclusions logically and correctly after a detailed consideration of the pros and cons of the case, and elaborate in the Court that interpretation, along with the medical grounds on which it is based.
  • Presumption is not proof, and conjecture is not evidence. The Court has no special medical knowledge. It relies on medical witness for an opinion and expects him to assist it with his special knowledge and experience in perusal of truth.
  • Presumption, assumption hypothesis, and mere conclusion on self defined interpretation is not a proof, and conjecture is not evidence

Smoking in pregnancy can harm the thyroid

Smoking while pregnant can damage both the mother’s and the baby’s thyroid functions, said Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India.

A British study has shown that cigarette smoke causes babies to be born smaller, newborns to more likely to die of sudden infant death syndrome, and even to affect the rates of cleft lips, heart defects and other problems.

Now it has been shown that smoking can also affect the thyroids of both the mothers and babies. The study has demonstrated that cigarette smoking at different stages of pregnancy –– first trimester and the third trimester is associated with changes in the mothers’ thyroid hormone levels.

Good thyroid function is the key to maintaining a pregnancy, and some pregnant women suffer from thyroid imbalances. This, in turn, affects metabolism and the risk of miscarriage, premature birth, low birth weight and impaired brain development.

Published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, the study measured the thyroid hormone levels in the umbilical cords of babies born to smoking mothers and found that smoking–related changes in thyroid function also affected the newborn.

But among women who quit while pregnant, thyroid hormone levels were comparable to levels found in non–smokers.
