Sex in the Second Half of Life

Sexuality is not just for the young. Results from a University of Chicago survey published in 2007 suggested that over half of Americans remain sexually active well into their 70s.

Researchers at Indiana University report that 20% to 30% of long–lived Americans are sexually active into their 80s.

The University of Chicago survey focused exclusively on older adults, including over 3,000 Americans ages 57 to 85. The main points were

Results from Indiana University and Chicago University trials

  1. Both surveys show a decline in sexual activity with age, although the drop–off isn’t as steep as one might expect, and a significant minority (especially men) defies the trend.
  2. In the Indiana study, 35% of the men ages 80 and older reported that they had intercourse a few times or more in the past year.
  3. In the University of Chicago study, 38.5% of the men ages 75 to 85 reported having sexual activity with a partner in the previous year.
  4. Older women are less sexually active than older men.
  5. Both studies show that older women — even the "young old," in their 60s — are less sexually active than men of the same age.
  6. The gender gap widens as people get older.
  7. Partnered sex gets high marks.
  8. In the Indiana study, over three–quarters (78%) of the men ages 50 and over rated their most recent sexual experience with a partner as either extremely or "quite a bit" pleasurable.
  9. About two–thirds (68.2%) of the women in that age group rated their most recent experience with a partner that highly.
  10. Yet, a sizable minority of the men (43%) and women (36%) in the Indiana study reported that their most recent partnered sexual activity was with someone other than a spouse or long–time partner. This category included casual or new acquaintances, friends, and "transactional" partners — people who engaged in sex in exchange for something, often but not always money.
  11. Masturbation is common. Most men (63%) and almost half of women (47%) in the 50 and over age group reported masturbating in the past year, according to the Indiana survey. As with other sexual activities, the percentage declined with age.
  12. Good health matters. The University of Chicago researchers found a strong association between good health and sexual activity, particularly among men. Diabetes seems to have a greater negative effect than either arthritis or high blood pressure on both genders, but especially on women. In the Indiana survey, a woman’s evaluation of her last sexual experience did not vary with her self–reported health status.
  13. Sexual problems are common. Half of those who participated in the University of Chicago study reported having at least one bothersome sexual problem. Among men, the problems included difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection (37%), lack of interest in sex (28%), anxiety about performance (27%), and inability to climax (20%). Among women, the common problems were lack of interest in sex (43%), difficulty with lubrication (39%), inability to climax (34%), lack of pleasure from sex (23%), and pain during sex (17%). In the Indiana survey, 30% of the women ages 50 and over said they experienced some level of pain during their most recent sexual experience with a partner.
  14. Many men take something to improve sexual function. In the Indiana survey, 17% of men ages 50 and older took an erectile dysfunction drug in connection with their most recent sexual experience with a partner. In the University of Chicago study, 14% of the men and 1% of the women reported taking medications or supplements to improve sexual function during the past year.

Paracetamol the most common prescribed drug in pediatrics

Iatrogenic complications can be more serious among children vs adults. A review of a large database of pediatric inpatients by Lasky and colleagues, which was published in the January 2011 issue of Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety, found that acetaminophen was the most commonly prescribed medication during hospitalization, followed by lidocaine, ampicillin, gentamicin, and fentanyl.

SSRI in pregnancy can cause PPH in the new born

Use of SSRI in pregnancy can place unborn child at risk for persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn. In a study of more than 1.6 million births, SSRI exposure in the second half of pregnancy was associated with a doubling of the odds of persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, said Helle Kieler, MD, PhD, of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, and colleagues in BMJ. This equates to an increase in absolute risk from 1.2 to 3 cases per 1,000 live-born infants.

One can predict metabolic syndrome at birth

Combination of three factors –– low birth weight, small head circumference at birth, and parental overweight or obesity is good predictor of the likelihood that the child would develop metabolic syndrome later.

The combination had high sensitivity (91%) and specificity (98%) for predicting adolescent metabolic syndrome reports Dr Stamatis Efstathiou, of the Hygeias Melathron Infirmary in Athens, Greecin Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.

    Infertility Update

(Dr Kaberi Banerjee, IVF expert, New Delhi)

Describe some variations of IVF?

There are two limitations of IVF:

Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) is similar to IVF, but the gametes (egg and sperm) are transferred to the woman’s fallopian tubes rather than her uterus, and fertilization takes place in the tubes rather than in 13the lab. GIFT is an option only for women who have normal fallopian tubes. y. One limitation of GIFT is that fertilization cannot be confirmed as with IVF.

Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer (ZIFT). This technique differs from GIFT in that fertilization takes place in the lab rather than the fallopian tube, but is similar in that the fertilized egg is transferred to the tube rather than the uterus.

   An Inspirational Story

When You Thought I wasn’t Looking

A message every adult should read, because children are watching you and doing as you do, not as you say.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn’t looking saw you feed a stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, saw you make my favorite cake for me and I learned that the little things can be the special things in life.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I heard you say a prayer, and I knew there is a God I could always talk to and I learned to trust in God.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I learned that we all have to help take care of each other.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you give of your time and money to help people who had nothing and I learned that those who have something should give to those who don’t.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you take care of our house and everyone in it and I learned we have to take care of what we are given.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw how you handled your responsibilities, even when you didn’t feel good and I learned that I would have to be responsible when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw tears come from your eyes and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it’s all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw that you cared and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, learned most of life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I looked at you and wanted to say, "Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn’t looking."

LITTLE EYES SEE A LOT: Each of us, parent or friend, influence the life of a child. How will you touch the life of someone today?

Make Sure

Situation: A 36–year–old truck driver had severe allergic rhinitis and came for treatment.
Reaction: Oh my God, why was he not prescribed azelastine nasal spray?
Lasson: Make sure to avoid oral antihistamines in persons who perform tasks like driving as they may cause sedation and drowsiness; instead prescribe azelastine nasal spray which is effective and non–sedating.

Tests for Conn’s Syndrome

  • To diagnose primary hyperaldosteronism and to monitor the effectiveness of treatment
    • Blood renin
    • Blood and/or 24–hour urine aldosterone
  • To screen for primary hyperaldosteronism
    • Aldosterone–renin ratio (ARR)

If renin levels are low and aldosterone high, then the ratio will be significantly increased and primary hyperaldosteronism is likely to be present.

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

Doctor in the Court room

Physician in the courtroom is the traditional contribution of medicine to justice Truth is perused by law and medicine and it is not captured in the court of law. Medical literature/books/journal/case law in the form of medical evidence if produced by medical practioner must be available for visual inspection in the court of law. Even though you have ready evidence into the record of the trial/debate, your opponents and the critic have a right to examine the evidence more closely. An opponent may ask to inspect your evidence at the conclusion of your argument/speech, and your critic may ask to inspect select pieces of evidence at the conclusion of the argument/debate. Both requests are quite common. You should give them the evidence they request, and be able to tell them exactly what you read from the document. Although quoted evidence is vital to cross–examination trial/debate, it is not difficult to grasp the basic principles of collecting and using evidence. What medical evidence is, and how it is used, will quickly become evident as you listen to a few cross-examination trial and its legal debates in the court of law.

Most uncontrolled asthmatics think they are controlled

Two thirds of patients with uncontrolled asthma think their disease is well under control said Padmashri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India. Asthmatics on proper medicines can not only live a normal life but also reduce their future complications.

Uncontrolled asthmatics invariably end up with right heart complications due to persistent lack of oxygenation in the blood.

Dr. Eric van Ganse, of University of Lyon, France, in a study published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, examined 1,048 subjects with inadequate asthma control. When asked how they would rate their asthma control over the past 14 days, over 69 percent considered themselves to be completely or well controlled. Failure to perceive inadequate asthma control was more likely to be found in patients between the ages of 41 and 50 years.

The reasons are:

  1. Most asthmatics fail to perceive their level of disease control and with an uncontrolled state they often feel that their asthma is under control.
  2. In severe asthma low blood oxygen levels might impair a person’s ability to assess their own breathing difficulty.
  3. The notion of asthma control seems poorly understood by asthmatic patients.
  4. Mild to moderate asthma limits the activities of a person and they over a period of time take that as their normal limits.

National Intervention Council Update

National Intervention Council is pleased to announce a National Interventional Fellow Competition in its forthcoming Mid–term NIC Meeting to be held in Kochi, 27–29 April 2012.

As you might know there is paucity of good interventional post–DM Fellowship programmes in the country. As such there is no consistent, dedicated teaching to the aspiring interventionists. These budding interventional cardiologists mostly learn by watching their teachers and senior colleagues. As such these students particularly lack in knowledge of basics of this sub–speciality. Therefore, NIC is focusing on alleviating this felt need by doing a "Back to Basics" session at the mid–term NIC Meeting. At the end of this session we propose to hold a National Competition.

The "Competition" will include an MCQ type written exam on basics of coronary intervention followed by a quiz. The students will be examined by judges who will award "National Interventional Fellow Award". Students enrolled in Cardiology and Intervention Cardiology teaching programme and those who have already completed within 3 years will be eligible for the competition.

Those who wish to participate for this competition can register by sending their full particulars (Name, Institution, Year of Residency, Guide/co–Guides, email address and mobile number) either on email or the following address.

Dr Sundeep Mishra

425 Mount Kailash Tower No 2, East of Kailash,
New Delhi, India 110065

drsundeepmishra@hotmail.com, Mobile 9871421390

Fellows can also register at website http://www.nickochi2012.org/ NIC will offer an all paid 3 month hands–on Interventional fellowship at an international center to winner of this award. We hope this will stimulate a desire to systemically learn the basics of coronary hardware and the techniques and will then apply this learned knowledge to clinical practice thus raising the overall standard in our country.

Please let us know what you feel about the program. Particularly, we request you encourage your students and junior colleagues to participate in this event.
