In coma the patient is listening

The Indian Upanishads have been saying that one can hear even while in coma and so one should not talk bad or ill in front of a comatose patient and now another western study has proved this.

Researchers led by Lorina Naci, PhD, and Adrian Owen, PhD, of Western University in London, Ontario have established a primitive type of communication with two nonresponsive patients using fMRI to measure their attention to certain words, serving as responses to questions. The study is published in online in JAMA Neurology.

The technique in future may be useful in establishing basic communication with patients who appear unresponsive to bedside examinations and cannot respond with existing neuroimaging methods.

Brain activity measured by fMRI in one patient with minimal consciousness and one in a persistent vegetative state demonstrated not only that they heard words spoken to them, but also could use their attention to the words to give "Yes" or "No" answers to questions about their names and location.

The second patient, who had been in a persistent vegetative state for 12 years after a head injury, was able to "answer" in the negative when asked if he was in a supermarket, but affirmatively when asked if he was in a hospital. The patient also gave correct answers to yes-no questions about his name.

These "answers" were in the form of increased activity in brain regions that had previously been activated during a training period in which patients were instructed either to count occurrences of the words "Yes" or "No" when spoken to them or to ignore them.

With functional magnetic resonance imaging it is possible that behaviorally nonresponsive patients can use selective auditory attention to convey their ability to follow commands and communicate.

Earlier studies

  • Some apparently comatose patients retain some cognitive ability despite being unable to move or speak.
  • In one study, fMRI showed distinctive patterns of brain activity when patients were told to imagine certain images.
  • Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, in a vegetative state for 6 years following a stroke, was found to show a unique pattern of brain activity in response to the voice of his son.

Vitamin may have no role in hypertension

Supplementation with high doses of oral vitamin D3 every 3 months did not have a significant effect on blood pressure in older patients with isolated systolic hypertension as per a small randomized trial reported online in JAMA Internal Medicine. At both 3 months and 1 year, there were no differences in office blood pressure between the supplementation and placebo groups. And there were no effects seen on nearly all of the secondary outcomes, with the exception of parathyroid hormone levels, which dropped by 3.8 ng/mL with supplementation relative to placebo. …Read More

Antihypertensive and cardioprotective effects of pumpkin seed oil

  • Pumpkin seed oil is a natural product commonly used in folk medicine for treatment of prostatic hypertrophy.
  • The pumpkin seed oil exhibits an antihypertensive and cardioprotective effects through a mechanism that may involve generation of NO. (El-Mosallamy AE, Sleem AA, Abdel–Salam OM, et al. J Med Food. 2012 Feb;15(2):180–9).
  • Telfairia occidentalis (fluted pumpkin) is one of the commonly consumed leafy vegetables in Nigeria. In a study on rats supplemented diets containing 3% and 6%, T. occidentalis decreased plasma and PMF cholesterol levels by 20% and 30% and by 30% and 45%, respectively. (Adaramoye OA, Achem J, Akintayo OO, et al. Hypolipidemic effect of Telfairia occidentalis (fluted pumpkin) in rats fed a cholesterol–rich diet. J Med Food 2007 Jun;10(2):330–6).
  • Natural products like pumpkin–seed oil (PSO) may modify the potency of the calcium antagonist felodipine (FEL) or angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE–inhibitor), captopril (CPT) in modulating the biochemical derangement in blood, heart and kidney as well as blood pressure and heart rate of spontaneously hypertensive rats.

sprritual blog Quantum Physics and Soul Consciousness

Quantum Consciousness is based on the concept that all things are interrelated and can affect each other at speeds greater than the speed of light.

Observer effect: There is no phenomenon until it is observed (an observer is required to interact with an object in order for events to occur). This effect is known as the ‘Observer Effect’. It means that before anything can manifest in the physical universe it must first be observed. An observation therefore cannot occur without the pre-existence of some sort of consciousness to do the observing. The Observer Effect clearly implies that the physical Universe is the direct result of ‘consciousness’.

This notion has a striking resemblance to perennial esoteric theory which asserts that all phenomena are the result of the consciousness of a single over lighting Creative Principle or the Mind of God.

Everything – matter, us and the universe – is simply a result of wave structure in space. Chandogya Upanishad talks about this void in details. (Chapter XII — the Birth of the Gross from the Subtle)

There is a delicious irony in all this. Contemporary Western scientific theory postulates that human consciousness is solely a result of the workings of a physical brain, yet if the observer effect is correct, the physical matter comprising a brain cannot come into existence until it is the subject of observation by some pre–existing consciousness.

Rumi has a famous poem on this subject "we came whirling out of nothingness scattering stars like dust, the stars made a circle and in the middle we dance. The wheel of heaven, with all its pomp and splendour, circles around God like a mill."

The illusion of continuity: The whole universe looks like it is made up of matter but actually is nothing but void with Brahman as the base. Also everything which looks like a continuity actually has discontinuity. A running movie has no continuity; it is only a rapid sequential screening of still frames. The earth looks stationary but actually is a moving structure. Each and every cell in the body looks stationary but actually has a spinning base. Thoughts have no continuity; the space between the thoughts is the reality.

In this discontinuity (between the thoughts) lies the consciousness with infinite possibilities and capability of instantaneous interconnectedness, synchronicity, uncertainty and quantum leap.

EPR effect: In 1935, three physicists, Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky, and Nathan Rosen said that non local interactions between objects had to exist. They challenged the existing theory of relativity and quantum mechanics; this is called Einstein–Podolosky–Rosen (EPR) paradox. Many experiments have shown that a non local correlation between objects indeed occurs once these objects have interacted. There is now evidence that EPR correlation occurs between human brains.

Non– local correlation (nonlocal behavior" or colloquially as "quantum weirdness") means everything is connected with everything else irrespective of distance and time. This connection is instantaneous. It has no communication mode. The phenomenon cannot be explained by routine physics as nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.

Every particle in every star and galaxy that we can see "knows" about the existence of every other particle. (Gribbin,1984).

Quantum leap: Now here, now there in between nowhere. A quantum leap is a leap from A to B, without passing through any of the points between A and B.

Heisenberg principle of uncertainty: It is not possible to simultaneously determine the position and momentum of a particle. Moreover, the better the position is known, the less well the momentum is known (and vice versa). A consequence of the Qunatum Mechanical nature of the world is that the particles can appear in places where they have no right to be. (Source one of the talks of Deepak Chopra)) ….Read More

Everyone Can Play

At a fundraising dinner for an American school that serves learning disabled children, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a question:

"When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does is done with perfection. Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do. Where is the natural order of things in my son?" The audience was stilled by the query.

The father continued. "I believe that when a child like Shay, physically and mentally handicapped comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents itself, and it comes, in the way other people treat that child."

Then he told the following story:

Shay and his father had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball. Shay asked,"Do you think they'll let me play?" Shay’s father knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but the father also understood that if his son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his handicaps.

Shay's father approached one of the boys on the field and asked if Shay could play, not expecting much. The boy looked around for guidance and said, "We’re losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team and we'll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning."

Shay struggled over to the team’s bench put on a team shirt with a broad smile and his Father had a small tear in his eye and warmth in his heart. The boys saw the father's joy at his son being accepted. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay’s team scored a few runs but was still behind by three. In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the right field.

Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands. In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored again. Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.

At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game? Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible because Shay didn't even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball.

However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the pitcher, recognizing the other team putting winning aside for this moment in Shay’s life, moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least be able to make contact. The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed. The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay. As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher. The game would now be over, but the pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman. Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game.

Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the head of the first baseman, out of reach of all team mates. Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, "Shay, run to first! Run to first!" Never in his life had Shay ever ran that far but made it to first base. He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled.

Everyone yelled, "Run to second, run to second!" Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran towards second, gleaming and struggling to make it to second base. By the time Shay rounded towards second base, the right fielder had the ball, the smallest guy on their team, who had a chance to be the hero for his team for the first time. He could have thrown the ball to the second–baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher’s intentions and he too intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third–baseman’s head. Shay ran toward third base deliriously as the runners ahead of him circled the bases toward home.

All were screaming, "Shay, Shay, Shay, all the Way Shay" Shay reached third base, the opposing shortstop ran to help him and turned him in the direction of third base, and shouted, "Run to third! Shay, run to third" As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams and those watching were on their feet were screaming, "Shay, run home! Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the "grand slam" and won the game for his team.

That day, said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world. Shay didn’t make it to another summer and died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making his father so happy and coming home and seeing his mother tearfully embrace her little hero of the day!

  • A new research has found that higher levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) are associated with heart disease in older patients even when they're within the normal range. In a cross-sectional population study, older patients in the highest quintile of normal serum PTH levels had a significantly higher risk of cardiovascular disease compared with those in the lowest quintile. Men with high–normal PTH levels had more calcification of the abdominal aorta. The study is reported online in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. (Source: Medpage Today)

  • In a study, published online August 7, 2013 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Dr Richard Page (University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison) and colleagues report that Cardiac arrests are more likely to occur at nontraditional exercise facilities than at traditional gyms, suggesting that a broader placement of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) could help improve resuscitation from sudden cardiac arrest. In the study, the annualized site incidence of sudden cardiac arrest at health clubs and traditional gyms was 0.024 arrests per site. A higher rate of cardiac arrest was observed at indoor tennis facilities, ice arenas, and bowling alleys than at traditional exercise facilities, with one arrest every 11, 13, and 27 years/site, respectively.

  • Children admitted to intensive care for bronchiolitis did significantly worse if they also had low sodium levels. In a retrospective analysis, children with hyponatremia were more likely to die, to be on a ventilator longer, and to spend more time in the intensive care unit. While they were not more likely than children with normal sodium to need mechanical ventilation, they were more than twice as likely to need noninvasive breathing support. Ricky Luu, MD, of Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora, and colleagues have reported their findings in the Journal of Pediatrics. (Source: Medpage Today)

  • Preterm babies were more likely than term babies to have a smaller right ventricle and enlarged right ventricular mass, according to Paul Lesson, PhD, of the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, and colleagues. Compared with babies who were born at term, preterm birth was associated with small right ventricle (end diastolic volume 79.8 mL/m2 versus 88.5 mL/m2, P<0.001) and large right ventricular mass (24.5 g/m2 versus 20.3 g/m2, P<0.001). These differences were also associated with altered function later in life, with preterm babies having a significantly lower right ventricular ejection fraction than term babies in young adulthood (24.5 g/m2 versus 20.4 g/m2, P=0.001).

Donating blood reduces chances of heart attack

One should donate blood at least once in a year. Donating blood regularly has been shown in many reports to reduce chances of future heart attacks. Blood donation is also one of the best charities that one can do as it can save multiple lives through various components taken out of a single blood transfusion.

All those who are going for elective surgery should donate their blood well in advance and the same should be used at the time of surgery.

In the current medical tourism scenario, many Christian patients from Jehovah’s Witnesses refuse blood transfusion on religious grounds. They do not accept transfusion of whole blood or any of the four major components (blood cells, platelets, plasma and white cells). They are prepared to die rather than receive the blood. They also do not accept transfusion of stored blood including their own due to the belief that blood should not be taken out of the body and stored for any length of time. In such cases, every effort should be made to reduce blood loss, conserve blood and give drugs that can enhance hemoglobin formation.

A new concept called Bloodless Medicine has now become a reality where treatment, surgery and even emergency surgery can be done without using any blood.

Birth defects linked to mother’s use of cold medicines

A study published in July issue of American Journal of Epidemiology has shown that women who use oral or nasal decongestants during first three months of pregnancy have more chances of giving birth to a child with cognitive defects, said Padma Shri & Dr. BC Roy National Awardee, President, Heart Care Foundation of India, Dr K K Aggarwal.

In the past, use of phenylephrine in the first three months of pregnancy is linked with congenital heart disease with endocardial cushion effect.

Another link has been shown with the use of phenylpropanolamine with pyloric stenosis.

The current recommendation is that in the first three months of pregnancy, oral or intranasal decongestants should not be used. That means for any common cold and cough in the first three months of pregnancy should not be taken lightly and over–the–counter drugs should not be used.
