Char Dhaam Yatra Special – Traveling Precautions

People with certain medical conditions need to take special precautions when traveling at high altitudes.
  1. Diabetics be aware: Blood glucose meters can give inaccurate results at high altitudes. Consult the manufacturer of the meter for recommendations about high altitude readings. Above 5000 m, some of the diabetic climbers experience hypoglycemia after dinner with nocturnal hyperglycemia probably because of delayed absorption of carbohydrates at altitude and rapid absorption of the Lispro Insulin used. One should delay insulin administration until the end of dinner.
  2. If one has angina or had a heart attack in the past: Have a cardiac evaluation. One should consult if there is chest pain, shortness of breath, or dizziness while travelling.
  3. At high altitude, the blood thickens and the blood pressure rises. This may increase the risk of a stroke.
  4. Asthma does not worsen at high altitudes.
  5. If one uses oxygen because of lung disease, a higher oxygen flow rate is needed at high altitude. If one does require oxygen for the lung disease at home, one might need oxygen at high altitude.
  6. In sickle cell disease, oxygen will be needed for travel above 7,000 feet (2,100 meters). If one has sickle cell trait, altitude–related complications are rare, except at very high altitude (over 14,000 feet or 4,200 meters).

Carbon dioxide monitoring or capnography in CPR

  1. Capnography is noninvasive measurement of the partial pressure of carbon dioxide (CO2) in exhaled breath expressed as the CO2 concentration over time.
  2. CO2 waveform is called capnogram.
  3. Changes in the shape of the capnogram are diagnostic of disease conditions.
  4. Changes in end–tidal CO2 (EtCO2), the maximum CO2 concentration at the end of each tidal breath, can be used to assess disease severity and response to treatment.
  5. Capnography is also the most reliable indicator that an endotracheal tube is placed in the trachea after intubation.
  6. Pulse oximetry provides instantaneous feedback about oxygenation. Capnography provides instantaneous information about ventilation (how effectively CO2 is being eliminated by the pulmonary system), perfusion (how effectively CO2 is being transported through the vascular system), and metabolism (how effectively CO2 is being produced by cellular metabolism).
  7. CO2 Waveform consists of four phases. Patients with normal lung function have characteristic rectangular capnograms and narrow gradients between their alveolar CO2 (i.e, EtCO2) and arterial CO2 concentration (PaCO2) of 0 to 5 mmHg.
  8. Following intubation, the presence of a waveform with all four phases indicates the ETT is through the vocal cords. A normal waveform can occur when the tube has been placed in the right mainstem bronchus.
  9. A flatline waveform generally indicates esophageal placement, but can occur in several other situations, including: Prolonged cardiac arrest with diffuse cellular death (in which no CO2 is produced because of an absence of cellular respiration and CO2 exchange in the pulmonary bed is severely compromised); Tracheal placement with inadequate pulmonary blood flow (eg, poor chest compressions); ETT obstruction; Complete airway obstruction distal to the ETT (eg, foreign body) and Technical malfunction of the monitor or tubing
  10. Effectiveness of CPR: End–tidal CO2 (EtCO2) levels reflect cardiac output during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and can be used as a noninvasive measure of cardiac output. During cardiac arrest, when alveolar ventilation and metabolism are essentially constant, EtCO2 reflects pulmonary blood flow. EtCO2 can be used as a gauge of the effectiveness of cardiac compressions. As effective CPR leads to a higher cardiac output, EtCO2 will rise, reflecting the increase in perfusion. An EtCO2 level <3 mmHg immediately after cardiac arrest, with a higher level generated during cardiac compressions and a mean peak >7.5 mmHg just before return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). This peak in EtCO2 level is the earliest sign of ROSC and may occur before return of a palpable pulse or blood pressure.
  11. During cardiac arrest, EtCO2 is the earliest indicator of the return of spontaneous circulation. When the heart restarts, the dramatic increase in cardiac output, and resulting increase in perfusion, leads to a rapid increase in EtCO2 as the CO2 that has accumulated during cardiac arrest is effectively transported to the lungs and exhaled. This process manifests as a sudden rise in EtCO2.
  12. American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines for cardiac resuscitation emphasize the importance of continuing chest compressions without interruption until a perfusing rhythm is reestablished. Experimental evidence indicates that interruptions in chest compressions are followed by sustained periods of reduced blood flow, which only gradually return to preinterruption levels. Capnographic waveform monitoring virtually eliminates the need to stop chest compressions to check for pulses. Reestablishment of a perfusing rhythm is accompanied immediately by a dramatic increase in EtCO2. Once this rise in EtCO2 is noted, chest compressions can safely be stopped while cardiac rhythm and blood pressure are assessed.
  13. EtCO2 levels of ≤10 mmHg measured 20 minutes after the initiation of advanced cardiac life support accurately predicted death in adult patients with cardiac arrest.
  14. EtCO2 may also be helpful in determining the etiology of cardiac arrest. There is higher EtCO2 levels at the onset of cardiac arrest caused by primary asphyxia than arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation. Patients in the asphyxia group (initial rhythm of asystole or pulseless electrical activity associated with conditions such as airway foreign body, aspiration, asthma, or drowning) had higher EtCO2 levels compared with patients in the ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation group (initial rhythm of ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation associated with acute myocardial infarction).

New dengue case reported, MCD blames it on coolers

A 29–year–old man, Ashwini, was diagnosed with dengue on April 26 taking the total number of dengue cases this season to four. Health experts said the vector–borne disease is spreading, even though the weather is not conducive for the breeding of dengue–carrier aedes agypti mosquitoes. The first case of dengue was reported on March 3 after a doctor from All India Institute of Medical Sciences tested positive. "Dengue cases being reported during extreme summers and winters clearly indicates that the epidemiology of dengue fever is changing. This could also happen because of new mosquitoes or those who have tested positive are old cases," said V K Monga, chairperson of Public Health Committee, Municipal Corporation of Delhi.

    An Inspirational Story

(Dr Prachi Garg)

One day, the farmer’s horse ran away, and all the neighbors gathered in the evening and said ‘that’s too bad.’ He said ‘maybe.’ Next day, the horse came back and brought with it seven wild horses. ‘Wow!’ they said, ‘Aren’t you lucky!’ He said ‘maybe.’

The next day, his son grappled with one of these wild horses and tried to break it in, and he got thrown and broke his leg. And all the neighbors said ‘oh, that’s too bad that your son broke his leg.’ He said, ‘maybe.’

The next day, the conscription officers came around, gathering young men for the army, and they rejected his son because he had a broken leg. And the visitors all came around and said ‘Isn’t that great! Your son got out.’ He said, ‘maybe.’

Lesson: You never really know in which direction progress lies. Life unfolds not always as we expect it to.

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

No two people except identical twins have the same DNA structure

DNA testing is done by taking DNA extracts from biological sample putting them into a gel matrix and then using probes to help extract certain markers. Human being has a unique signature that lives within every cell of our body. This signature is commonly known as DNA.

  • Testing can be done on DNA to help determine parentage, ancestry, presence of genetically-based diseases and to help identify someone who may have been present at a crime scene
  • Most DNA tests are run at least twice, both independent of each other. This not only builds upon the credibility of the test but also helps ensure that no wrong data or incorrect marker analysis was performed on the first test. If any discrepancies are detected between the two tests then a new sample is used and the entire test is performed again to understand where the discrepancy may lay.
  • We get our DNA from our biological mother and biological father. Each of them contributes 50% of our chromosomes that makes up our DNA, which will stay with us for our entire lives without change. This is the very reason that makes DNA such a great choice for uniquely identifying a person.
  • Questions may arise as to how accurate DNA tests are. After all, in the past blood tests cannot have been as accurate as we might have hoped. They often left a bit of uncertainty or could not be conclusive in many areas. But thanks to the uniqueness of DNA almost all of these doubts can now be taken away.
  • Modern testing procedures and rules for DNA analysis mean that with rare exception DNA testing results can be guaranteed to be more than 90% accurate for most paternity, forensic and genetically-based disease analysis. However human error can come into play. A lab may mistakenly switch samples or key in data incorrectly. All of these factors are possible, but are very rare in occurrence. If there is ever any doubt as to the authenticity or correctness of a test it can simply be performed again to confirm accuracy.

Pureed/Soft: After one week on a full liquid diet, a pureed or blended diet is started. Starches such as "doughy" breads, pasta and rice, chips should be avoided, as they tend to form a gummy ball in the pouch and cause discomfort. Protein continues to be critical. Protein should be the first food to be eaten at each meal.

The meal should provide with 1000–1100 calories, 1 gram per kg body weight as protiens and 15% fats from total calories.

Goals of the Mutual Fund

Many funds are designed to invest in companies that meet specific investor goals, like growth, value, dividend or income to name a few. Only companies that meet certain criteria will be included in the fund. For example, a growth fund looks for companies with significant, untapped growth potential, whereas a value fund will look for companies that are undervalued by the market as a way to increase investor returns. Both of these types of funds are designed for long–term capital appreciation.

Meditation better than Medication

Inaugurating a two-day practical workshop-cum-seminar on stress management and prevention of lifestyle disorders, Mr. Rakesh Mehta, Election Commissioner Govt of Delhi said that meditation is better than medication if incorporated in medical management. He said that most schools today are incorporating yoga, relaxation, pranayama and meditation as part of school curriculum. Scientific studies have shown that regular meditation not only makes one healthier but also improves efficiency and reduces stress-related disorders.

Mr. Mehta said that meditation, pranayama and relaxation techniques have now been validated by allopathy and should be included by allopathic doctors. He said that every hospital should have a Mind-Body Department which should deal in teaching such techniques.

Padma Shri and Dr. B C Roy Awardee Dr. K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India, said that all Vedantic yogic techniques shift one from sympathetic mode to parasympathetic mode. The healing is better when mind and body are relaxed. It is possible to reduce blood pressure, diabetes, anxiety, depression, insomnia and heart diseases just by living a yogic lifestyle. A mind-body yogic lifestyle should be an integral part of allopathic healing.

BK Shanti & BK Brij Mohan from Om Shanti Retreat Centre said that doing meditation 20 minutes a day gives you similar benefits as that obtained with 7 hours of deep sleep.

BK Sapna, Dr. Dinesh Negi, President, IMA New Delhi Branch; Dr. Vinod Khetarpal, President, DMA also spoke on the occasion.
