Straight from the Heart: 2nd October fast for nonviolence or fast for national protest
Dr KK Aggarwal, National President, IMA
Dear Colleague
 
It was a disturbing day for IMA yesterday. Dr RN Tandon and Dr DR Rai and I attended the National Council for Clinical Establishments chaired by the DGHS.
  • In the meeting, it was obvious that the National Council does not recognize the minutes of Inter-Ministerial Committee.
  • In every Inter-Ministerial committee meeting, the joint secretary of CEA, who is member secretary of the council, was present but his decision was not given any weightage.
  • The chairman of the council did not approve the very basic fact agreed by the ministry earlier that the clause to Stabilize needs to be changed to "basic life support services"
  • IMA clearly told the chair that for IMA, MOH is one and not divided into Health Ministry and DGHS section separately.

ADHD in children can be managed with few simple measures

New Delhi, 09 September 2017: Some few and disparate studies conducted indicate that about 1.6% to 12.2% of children in India have ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. ADHD can run in families with environmental stress and academic pressure being two factors that can aggravate the condition. As per the IMA, ADHD occurs mostly in young children, during their preschool or kindergarten years. In some children, the condition can become worse when they enter teenage. It can also occur in adults. 
 
ADHD is a brain disorder marked by an ongoing pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development. The brain of a person with ADHD is generally 5% smaller than someone without ADHD, particularly regions involved in attention, impulse control, and stimulus integration.
