  Editorial …

14th January 2013, Monday

Tweet of the day @drkkaggarwal

  1. Debate on whether to routinely measure BP in kids: The contradictory advice comes in two papers published online January 8, 2013 in JAMA Pediatrics. In the first, a review article, Dr Arnaud Chiolero (Switzerland) say there is "no compelling evidence in favor of universal BP screening among healthy children." But in an accompanying editorial, pediatricians Dr Stephen R Daniels and Samuel S Gidding (University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora) argue that US National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the American Academy of Pediatrics, recommend routine measurement of BP in children starting at age three.

    The Heart Care Foundation of India and I personally recommend that screening should be done at the time of entry to the school.
  2. Eighty percent of us are vitamin D deficient: Vitamin D deficiency depends on the following:

    Where you live: The further you live away from the Equator, the less vitamin D–producing UVB light reaches the earth’s surface during the winter.

    Indians: In India, 80% people have vitamin d deficiency. Indian require 2000 IU of vitamin D daily (western requirement is 800 units).

    Air quality: Carbon particles in the air from the burning of fossil fuels, wood, and other materials scatter and absorb UVB rays, diminishing vitamin D production.

    Pollution: Ozone absorbs UVB radiation, so pollution-caused holes in the ozone layer could end up enhancing vitamin D levels.

    Use of sunscreen: Sunscreen prevents sunburn by blocking UVB light. Sunscreen use lowers vitamin D levels.

    Skin color: Melanin makes the skin dark. It “competes” for UVB with the substance in the skin that makes vitamin D. Dark-skinned people tend to require more UVB exposure than light-skinned people to generate the same amount of vitamin D.

    Weight: Being obese is correlated with low vitamin D levels and being overweight may affect the bioavailability of vitamin D.

    Age: Older people have lower levels of the substance in the skin that UVB light converts into the vitamin D precursor. Older people are less efficient vitamin D producers than younger people.

    Formula of 40: Expose 40% of your body, for at least 40 continuous minutes for at least 40 days in an year to get adequate vitamin D.
  3. High BPA levels in kids linked to kidney and heart damage: Bisphenol-A (BPA), the compound found in plastic and food packaging can put children at risk for future heart and kidney disease. This harm is independent of the issues related to obesity, as reported in online Jan. 9 in Kidney International.

    Constipation Update

How is fetal impaction diagnosed?

The diagnosis of fecal impaction is confirmed by performing a digital rectal examination. The impacted stool is not necessarily hard, but the key to the diagnosis of fecal impaction is in finding a copious amount of stool in the rectum. It is important to note that fecal impactions can occur in the proximal rectum or sigmoid colon, and a digital rectal examination will be nondiagnostic. If the clinical suspicion for a fecal impaction is high, an abdominal radiograph should be obtained to detect fecal loading in the absence of a rectal impaction.

IIT-Madras ready for mass production of artificial blood

CHENNAI: IIT-Madras scientists have blood on their hands — and nobody is complaining. A team of scientists from the department of engineering design has been successful in creating enough red blood cells from stem cells to be used as 'artificial blood' in people who need transfusion. Having proved their oxygen-carrying capacity, the RBCs will now go into 'mass production' before starting human trials in three years, scientists said. The IIT team recently got a funding approval from the Union ministry of science and technology to produce artificial blood on an industrial scale. This blood would be tested on animals before human trials. If the trials prove successful, it will help hospitals overcome shortage of blood and save many accident victims. "We will be able to provide any amount of safe and disease-free blood at half the cost of blood sold now," said the study's principal investigator, Dr Soma Guhathakurta, a visiting professor at the department of engineering design IIT-M. In the past few months, Dr Soma and her team of researchers have made trillions of red blood cells - the carrier of hemoglobin that delivers oxygen to various body tissues and clears up carbon dioxide - on a Petri dish. They cultured adult stem cells derived from cord blood in the presence of some "easily nutritional supplements" for 17 days in the lab. The stem cells, which are undifferentiated cells with the potential to turn into any cell, developed into red blood cells. The department of biotechnology (DBT) has recently approved a proposal from the scientists to develop a bio-reactor for large-scale production of artificial blood. The reactor will be built with support of IIT's biotechnology department. (Source: TOI, Jan 12, 2013)

Amitriptyline shows promise as local dental anesthetic

A topical mucoadhesive tablet containing the antidepressant amitriptyline significantly reduced pain from needle pricks in a small, randomized controlled clinical trial. The researchers said the formulation could take the place of other topical anesthetics in dentistry, which have an imperfect record. Published in the January issue of the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the study appears to be the first on this anesthetic approach. (Source: Medscape)

Microscopic hematuria may be poor predictor of cancer

Salivary gland biopsy may diagnose Parkinson's disease

Salivary gland biopsy appears to be a diagnostic test for Parkinson's disease, a new study suggests. A biopsy of the submandibular gland that shows the presence of the abnormal protein alpha-synuclein is highly indicative of Parkinson's, as distinct from other neurodegenerative disorders that can mimic the disease, said lead study author, Charles Adler, MD, PhD, from the Mayo Clinic Arizona, Scottsdale, Arizona.

Two antihypertensives plus NSAID ups risk of acute kidney injury

Taking two antihypertensive medications--a diuretic and an ACE inhibitor or angiotensin-receptor blocker (ARB)--along with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) significantly increases the risk of hospitalization for acute kidney injury, particularly in the first 30 days of treatment, a new retrospective case-control study demonstrates.

    Infertility Update (Dr Kaberi Banerjee, IVF expert, New Delhi)

If I have hydrosalpinx, can I have a baby?

If your fallopian tubes are completely blocked, an egg cannot travel through them to your womb. You will need to be treated by a doctor before you can get pregnant. If there is too much damage to the tubes, an egg might not be able to travel through them even if they are opened. You will need treatments that do not involve the tubes to help you get pregnant. One of these treatments is called in vitro fertilization (IVF). In this procedure, your egg and the man’s sperm are joined (fertilized) in the laboratory. The doctor then places the fertilized eggs (embryos) into your womb.

Organ transplantation: History

Successful human allotransplants have a relatively long history; operative skills were present long before the necessities for postoperative survival were discovered. Rejection and the side effects of preventing rejection (especially infection and nephropathy) were, are, and may always be the key problem.

Several apocryphal accounts of transplants exist well prior to the scientific understanding and advancements that would be necessary for them to have actually occurred. The Chinese physician Pien Chi’ao reportedly exchanged hearts between a man of strong spirit but weak will with one of a man of weak spirit but strong will in an attempt to achieve balance in each man. Roman Catholic accounts report the 3rd–century saints Damian and Cosmas as replacing the gangrenous leg of the Roman deacon Justinian with the leg of a recently deceased Ethiopian. Most accounts have the saints performing the transplant in the 4th century, decades after their deaths; some accounts have them only instructing living surgeons who performed the procedure.

The more likely accounts of early transplants deal with skin transplantation. The first reasonable account is of the Indian surgeon Sushruta in the 2nd century BC, who used autografted skin transplantation in nose reconstruction rhinoplasty. Success or failure of these procedures is not well documented. Centuries later, the Italian surgeon Gasparo Tagliacozzi performed successful skin autografts; he also failed consistently with allografts, offering the first suggestion of rejection centuries before that mechanism could possibly be understood. He attributed it to the "force and power of individuality" in his 1596 work De Curtorum Chirurgia per Insitionem.

The first successful corneal allograft transplant was performed in 1837 in a gazelle model; the first successful human corneal transplant, a keratoplastic operation, was performed by Eduard Zirm at Olomouc Eye Clinic, now Czech Republic, in 1905. Pioneering work in the surgical technique of transplantation was made in the early 1900s by the French surgeon Alexis Carrel, with Charles Guthrie, with the transplantation of arteries or veins. Their skilful anastomosis operations, the new suturing techniques, laid the groundwork for later transplant surgery and won Carrel the 1912 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. From 1902 Carrel performed transplant experiments on dogs. Surgically successful in moving kidneys, hearts and spleens, he was one of the first to identify the problem of rejection, which remained insurmountable for decades.

Major steps in skin transplantation occurred during the First World War, notably in the work of Harold Gillies at Aldershot. Among his advances was the tubed pedicle graft, maintaining a flesh connection from the donor site until the graft established its own blood flow. Gillies’ assistant, Archibald McIndoe, carried on the work into the Second World War as reconstructive surgery. In 1962 the first successful replantation surgery was performed – re–attaching a severed limb and restoring (limited) function and feeling.

The first attempted human deceased-donor transplant was performed by the Ukrainian surgeon Yu Yu Voronoy in the 1930s; rejection resulted in failure. Joseph Murray and J. Hartwell Harrison performed the first successful transplant, a kidney transplant between identical twins, in 1954, successful because no immunosuppression was necessary in genetically identical twins.

    An Inspirational Story

The Sultan and the Vizier

A vizier had served his master for some thirty years and was known and admired for his loyalty, truthfulness and devotion to God. His honesty, however, had made him many enemies in the court, who spread stories of his duplicity and perfidy.

They worked on the Sultan day in and day out until he too came to distrust the innocent vizier and finally ordered the man who had served him so well to be put to death.

In his realm, those condemned to death were tied up and thrown into the pen where the sultan kept his fiercest hunting dogs. The dogs would promptly tear the victim to pieces.

Before being thrown to the dogs; however, the vizier asked for one last request. “I would like ten days’ respite,” he said, “so that I can pay my debts, collect any money due to me, return items people have put in my care, and share out my goods among my family and my children and appoint a guardian for them.”

After receiving a guarantee that the vizier would not try to escape, the sultan granted his request.

The vizier hurried home, collected one hundred gold pieces, then paid a visit to the huntsman who looked after the sultan’s dogs. He offered this man one hundred gold pieces and said, “Let me look after the dogs for ten days.” The huntsman agreed.

For the next ten days the vizier cared for the beasts with great attention, grooming them well and feeding them handsomely. By the end of the ten days, they were eating out of his hand.

On the eleventh day the vizier was called before the sultan, the charges were repeated, and the sultan watched as the vizier was tied up and thrown to the dogs. Yet when the beats saw him, they ran up to him with wagging tails. They nibbled affectionately at his shoulders and began playing with him.

The sultan and other witnesses were amazed, and the sultan asked the vizier why the dogs had spared his life. The vizier replied, “I have looked after these dogs for ten days. The sultan has seen the result himself. I have looked after you for thirty years, and what is the result? I am condemned to death on the strength of accusations brought by my enemies.”

The sultan blushed with shame. He not only pardoned the vizier but gave him a fine set of clothes and handed over to him the men who slandered his reputation. The noble vizier set them free and continued to treat them with kindness.

    Legal Question of the Day (Dr MC Gupta)

Q. A 26-year-old man presented on 29-12-2012 with vomiting and dehydration and was admitted in my nursing home in a private cottage, which is located away from the general ward. He was treated and became alright but on 31-12-2012 at 7-30 p.m., he absconded/left LAMA after paying his bill to the staff but before his discharge summary could be prepared by a doctor. I came to know yesterday that at about 6-6-30 p.m. on 31-12-2012, there was a fracas at a place about 1.5 km. from the hospital and the police has registered an FIR in which his name is shown as an accused. It appears that the person had gone out of the hospital for some time without informing anybody. I want to avoid legal complications. What should I do?

Ans.

  1. It was obviously not a case of LAMA which means “Left against medical advice”. If he had recovered from his illness, there was no medical advice against his leaving the hospital. He also did not abscond because he went with proper information after paying his bill. We should use proper words to avoid legal complications.
  2. It is quite likely that he will give an alibi to the police that he was not present at the scene of crime and was admitted in the hospital when the crime was committed. It is likely that the police will make inquiries at the hospital.
  3. You should do as follows:
    • You should ensure that all medical records/case sheet are properly written up.
    • You should make an entry in the records as follows: “When I came for evening round at about 8 p.m., I found that the patient was not on his bed. The staff told me that he went away after paying the bill and promised to collect his discharge summary next day after the same was prepared by the treating doctor”.
    • You should further make a note in the case sheet as follows—“I learnt today that at about 6-6-30 p.m. on 31-12-2012, there was a fracas at a place about 1.5 km. from the hospital and the police has registered an FIR in which this patient’s name is shown as an accused. It appears that the person had gone out of the hospital and returned unobserved for a short duration on 31-12-2012 without informing anybody.” his note should preferably be signed by another member of your staff along with yourself.
    • You should dispatch to him a letter by registered post stating as follows: “It seems you left the hospital for some time on 31-12-2012 evening without informing anybody. This is not permitted and is against hospital rules. You did not come to collect your discharge summary and the same is enclosed herewith”.
    • You should put a notice in the hospital that patients should not leave the hospital without permission.

Cross–examination Debate for Standards of Medical Care

The cross–examination format involves eight speeches and four cross–examination sessions. The first four speeches are designated as constructive speeches. These are longer speeches, and are open to new lines of argument at any point in time. The final four speeches are designated as rebuttal speeches. These shorter speeches are reserved for summaries, which mean they are not open to new lines of argument. Interspersed between the constructive speeches are short cross–examination sessions, in which the debater who has just finished speaking is questioned by an opponent. During the course of the medical debate, each debater will deliver a constructive speech, a rebuttal speech, be cross–examined by an opponent and cross–examine an opponent. The order of speech is arranged to give the affirmative the open and closing speeches in the debate.

Hookah as bad as smoking

An hour of puffs from a hookah packs the same carbon monoxide punch as a pack-a-day cigarette habit, said Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India & Vice President Elect IMA.

Hookahs have grown in popularity in recent years and Hookah bars have appeared in cities all over the world that allow people to smoke these water pipes.

Users inhale tobacco smoke after it bubbles through water, a process that some people think filters toxins from the tobacco.

Hammond and a student, in a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, recruited 27 students who smoked water pipes for an hour on three different evenings in April 2006. Another five students didn't smoke the hookahs but stayed in the room with those who did. The participants abstained from water pipe smoking for 84 hours before taking part in the study; the bowls of their water pipes were filled with water and 10 grams of Al Fakher mu'assal tobacco, then heated with charcoal.

Researchers monitored carbon monoxide in the breath of the participants both before and after the experiment using a machine designed to detect if people are smokers.

The exhaled carbon monoxide in participants was an average of 42 parts per million, higher than that reported in cigarette smokers (17 parts per million). The study also found that carbon monoxide levels grew in the room where the subjects smoked hookahs and might reach environmentally unhealthy levels, as determined by the federal government, during longer sessions.

Smoking a water pipe for 45 minutes produces 36 times more tar than smoking a cigarette for five minutes.
