MRI safe for most patients with cardiac devices

Fewer than 1% of patients with implanted cardiac devices encountered device–related problems during MRI. MRI can be used safely in selected patients with implanted devices.

In three of 438 patients (0.3%), MRI triggered back-up programming mode in implanted devices. Right ventricular sensing and atrial and ventricular lead impedance values declined immediately after MRI. Long–term follow–up revealed decreased right ventricular sensing and lead impedance, increased right ventricular capture, and reduced battery voltage. None of the changes required revision or replacement of an implanted device, as reported in the October issue of Annals of Internal Medicine by Dr Saman Nazarian, of Johns Hopkins. (MedPage)

No rich–poor divide in diabetic foot complications: Study

AHMEDABAD: A study has negated the common belief that only poor diabetics – who do not wear proper footwear – end up getting ulcers or infection in their feet. If not attended to in time, that complication necessitates amputation. It has been found that most upper–middle–class patients who prefer not to use footwear at home or do not take adequate care of their feet are at an equal risk of getting foot ulcers. "We carried out a study in which 1,000 diabetics were studied at a clinic in east Ahmedabad and posh western parts of the city," said diabetes specialist Dr Banshi Saboo, who co–authored the study with physician Dr Urman Dhruv. "Of these, 131 diabetics were found with foot ulcers. Significantly, while 59 per cent were poor, 41 per cent belonged to upper–middle–class families." (Source: TOI, Oct 7, 2011)

FDA Okays ED drug for enlarged prostate

Tadalafil (Cialis), currently marketed for erectile dysfunction, also may be used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), the FDA said. The newly approved indication includes both prostate enlargement by itself and when it occurs along with erectile dysfunction. Tadalafil is the first phosphodiesterase–5 inhibitor to be approved for BPH. Eight other drugs are currently available for the condition, all of which are either alpha–adrenergic blockers or 5–alpha–reductase inhibitors. (Source: Medpage Today)

Federal Task Force nixes PSA screening

Healthy men do not need prostate cancer screening with prostate specific antigen (PSA) because the test does not save lives and often leads to unnecessary testing, interventions, and treatment, the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is expected to recommend in an update to its prostate cancer screening guidelines.

AAP updates vaccine recommendations

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has updated some of its vaccine guidance to harmonize recommendations with those of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The updates, published in three separate policy statements from the AAP's infectious diseases committee, applied to the tetanus toxoid, reduced–content diphtheria toxoid, and acellular pertussis vaccine (Tdap), poliovirus vaccine, and hepatitis A vaccine. Consistent with changes ACIP voted to make in October 2010, the AAP eliminated the minimum interval between receiving a tetanus or diphtheria toxoid–containing vaccine and receiving Tdap, advised a single dose of Tdap for children ages 7 to 10 who were under–immunized or who have an incomplete vaccine history, and recommended a single dose of vaccine for adults of any age who have not received Tdap previously and who anticipate having close contact with infants.

The Allopathic Ramayana

Navratras to Diwali is the season of revisiting the messages from Ramayana, the largest epic of our country which was once classified as one of the Puranas.

One can understand the story of Ramayana as the story of mind, body and soul and the story of causation and prevention of a disease. In the mind, body, soul concept the soul is represented as Rama and the physical body as Sita. Body is made up of five elements with earth being the predominant. Sita was the daughter of earth (prithvi)

    An Inspirational Story

(Dr Anil Kumar Jain)

Solution

Many years ago in a small Indian village, a farmer had the misfortune of owing a large sum of money to a village moneylender. The Moneylender, who was old and ugly, fancied the farmer’s beautiful daughter. So he proposed a bargain. He said he would forgo the farmer’s debt if he could marry his daughter. Both the farmer and his daughter were horrified by the proposal. So the cunning moneylender suggested that they let Providence decide the matter. He told them that he would put a black pebble and a white pebble into an empty money-bag. Then the girl would have to pick one pebble from the bag.

  1. If she picked the black pebble, she would become his wife and her father’s debt would be forgiven.
  2. If she picked the white pebble she need not marry him and her father’s debt would still be forgiven.
  3. But if she refused to pick a pebble, her father would be thrown into Jail.

They were standing on a pebble–strewn path in the farmer’s field. As they talked, the moneylender bent over to pick up two pebbles. As he picked them up, the sharp–eyed girl noticed that he had picked up two Black pebbles and put them into the bag. He then asked the girl to pick a pebble from the bag. Well, here is what she did…

The girl put her hand into the moneybag and drew out a pebble. Without Looking at it, she fumbled and let it fall onto the pebble–strewn path where it immediately became lost among all the other pebbles. "Oh, how clumsy of me," she said. "But never mind, if you look into the Bag for the one that is left, you will be able to tell which pebble I picked." Since the remaining pebble is black, it must be assumed that she had picked the white one. And since the money–lender dared not admit his dishonesty, the girl changed what seemed an impossible situation into an extremely advantageous one.

WHO report: Chronic disease is a leading killer

The World Health Organization has a major report detailing the growing worldwide threat from noncommunicable, chronic diseases. The report emphasizes the five diseases that kill the most people each year: cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung disease and diabetes. In total, these cause over 35 million deaths worldwide (which is more than half of all deaths each year). According to the report, the leading contributors to chronic disease are high blood pressure, high blood glucose, tobacco use, physical inactivity, and obesity. The report estimates that 30 million lives could be saved over the next ten years with simple preventive measures, including lowering salt intake, decreasing tobacco, healthy eating and increasing physical activity.

    Malaria Update

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

What is the treatment of uncomplicated malaria as per National Guidelines?

All fever cases diagnosed as malaria by RDT or microscopy and should promptly be given effective treatment. Following decision rules are followed based on method of diagnosis:

If neither RDK nor microscopy is available, in such situations the suspected malaria case should be considered in low risk areas as ‘clinical malaria’ and treated with chloroquine in full therapeutic dose of 25 mg/kg body weight over three days. In high risk area, a single dose of primaquine 0.75 mg/kg should be given on the second day. Primaquine is used to prevent relapse but is contraindicated in pregnant women, infants and individuals with G6PD deficiency. However, considering the fact that the prevalence of G6PD deficiency is very low, and if the risk is high due to Pf malaria, the primaquine may be given. Such patients should be instructed to report back in case of hematuria or high colored urine/cyanosis or blue coloration of lips and Primaquine should be stopped in such cases. Care should be taken in patients with anemia.

Surfactant for meconium aspiration syndrome in full term/near term infants

The lungs of newborn babies’ can be damaged by meconium aspiration syndrome. Meconium aspiration syndrome is caused when a stressed baby passes a bowel movement while still in the womb and then aspirates the meconium as a result of fetal stress or hypoxia gasping fetal respirations.

Pregnant women with meconium–stained amniotic fluid (MSAF) are more likely to develop maternal complications including inflammation of the fetal membranes caused by a bacterial infection (chorioamnionitis), postpartum inflammation of the lining of the uterus (endometritis) and neonatal complications such as neonatal sepsis. Pulmonary surfactant, the complex combination of chemicals that line the surface of the lung, may be altered or inactivated in babies who have meconium aspiration. It is thought that treatment with additional surfactant might be able to help overcome this damage. A review of trials published in the Cochrane database found that surfactant can reduce breathing difficulties and breathing failure in babies suffering from meconium aspiration syndrome. In another review based on one identified randomized controlled study (involving 120 women) found that prophylactic antibiotics may reduce the risk of intra–amniotic infection in women with MSAF. Antibiotics use did not clearly reduce neonatal sepsis, NICU admission or postpartum endometritis. It was suggested that further studies with much larger numbers of pregnant women with MSAF would be needed to examine these issues.

Cervical cancer is the only cancer suggested by WHO for routine screening.

 
    Legal Question of the Day

(Contributed by Dr MC Gupta, Advocate)

What is meant by a death certificate?

  1. The Registration of Births and Deaths Act, 1969, does not have the words "Death certificate".
  2. The above Act talks of two things:
    a. Notification of death;
    b. Certificate as to the cause of death.
  3. The provisions of the Act concerning these two terms are reproduced below:
    "10 (1) It shall be the duty of –
    • the midwife or any other medical or health attendant at a birth or death,
    • the keeper or the owner of a place set apart for the disposal of dead bodies or any person required by a local authority to be present at such place, or
    • any other person whom the State Government may specify in this behalf by his designation, to notify every birth or death or both at which he or she attended or was present, or which occurred in such areas as may be prescribed, to the Registrar within such time and in such manner as may be prescribed."

      10 (2) In any area, the State Government, having regard to the facilities available therein in this behalf, may require that a certificate as to the cause of death shall be obtained by the Registrar from such person and in such form as may be prescribed.

      10 (3) Where the State Government has required under sub–section (2) that a certificate as to the cause of death shall be obtained, in the event of the death of any person who, during the last illness, was attended by a medical practitioner, the medical practitioner shall, after the death of that person, forthwith, issue without charging any fee, to the person required under this Act to give information concerning the death, a certificate in the prescribed form stating to the best of his knowledge and belief the cause of death; and the certificate shall be received and delivered by such person to the Registrar at the time of giving information concerning the death as required by this Act."
  4. The above means that in areas covered by section 10(2), the so called death certificate actually means, in terms of the Act, "Notification of death and certificate as to the cause of death". In other areas, what is required is merely a notification or information of death.

    Medicolegal Update

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

A teacher slapped a 6th standard student after which she suffered from 25% hearing loss in left ear. This was corrected after a surgery. Is this a grievous injury or a simple injury?

Section 320 of Indian Penal Code defines grievous hurt and clause 3 mentions that the permanent privation of hearing of either ear is grievous injury. To be counted as grievous hurt the loss or privation of hearing may be partial and need not be complete but has to be permanent. Further the permanent does not mean that it should be incurable medically as well surgically. In this case 25% hearing loss was a direct consequence of slap injury and was cured by surgery but the cure may or may not be permanent. However the chances of cure by surgery do not minimize the gravity of injury for legal purpose. It is a grievous injury.
