The 4th Padma Awardees’ Meeting

The Padma Awardees’ met for the fourth time on Tuesday, 19th October, 2010 at Hotel Hans Plaza, New Delhi. The meeting was chaired by Dr. Ranjit Rai Choudhary, Member, Board of Governors, Medical Council of India. Following were present: Dr. M. Khalillulah, Dr. S.K. Sama, Dr. Mahipal Sachdev, Dr. Raman Kapoor, Dr. A.K. Grover, Dr. N.P. Gupta, Dr. M Wali, Dr. KK Aggarwal, Dr. Prem Kakkad, Dr. S.C Manchanda, Dr. A.K. Bhalla and Dr. Ashok Vaidya.

Following is a summary of the meeting.

  • The present MCI Board of Governors has completed five months of work and still has seven months’ tenure remaining.
  • Future of MCI: may end up with four bodies. 1. National Commission for HR in Health involving all councils under one roof (nominated body); 2. National council for accreditation (Nomination body); 3. Education board (nominated body) and, 4. Reformed Medical Council of India (elected body with powers for registarion, ethics, disciplinary actions etc.)
  • For recognition of colleges/ extension of further services, the inspectors have been laid off and instead ‘assessors’ have been appointed whose mind set is being changed from being inspectors to friendly partners.
  • The norms of inspection are outdated and have been revised. They are based more on educational component and not technical specifications. New guidelines also incorporate how students feel about the college.
  • Assessors are being appointed from amongst a list of selected assessors. It is a transparent system where a computer randomly selects three people out of a team of assessors.
  • Government colleges have been asked to increase the medical sears by at least 50.
  • Forty more medical colleges are likely to come this year; of these, 16 of them are Govt. including the railway, army and ESI.
  • The retirement age has been increased to 70 to increase the Faculty size.
  • The MCI is also thinking of forming a private/public partnership where the building will be of government and college will be run by private institutions.
  • The list of faculty is on the website so that there is no duplication of faculty for various colleges.
  • International Business School of Hyderabad is one of the consultants to MCI.
  • The MCI is serious in recommending Bachelor of Rural Health, a 3 ½ year course with six months’ skill training. These people cannot write Dr. in front of their names. They will have to get themselves registered every year and cannot practice surgery or conduct delivery or do MTPs. They can only prescribe limited drugs which are under OTC from amongst the Essential Drugs list.
  • The MCI Conduct Rules are under revision. There will be more emphasis on suo moto action.
  • MCI will soon make credit hours compulsory before re-registration.
  • At the moment, the MCI is of the view that every doctor who practices in his respective State will have to get registered under that State Council. MCI will come out with a clear-cut policy regarding doctors attending conferences, conducting workshops and operating in other States but not regularly practicing.
  • At present, MCI is considering making MD equivalent to DNB in DNB programs conducted in MCI-recognized postgraduate colleges but in others, the DNB candidate would be required to spend one more year to become equivalent to MD. However, this point was debated that MCI may review its policy.
  • The MCI is of the view that deficiency in professional service is not a professional misconduct and can only be referred to the respective courts of compensation. The suspension of license should not be the judgment for a professional deficiency.
  • MCI will soon come out with a clarification as to who is a specialist and who is a super specialist.

Conventional versus compression–only CPR

Compression–only cardiopulmonary resuscitation for bystanders is suggested in limited situations in adults with cardiac arrest. However, this recommendation does not apply to children, because cardiac arrest is more commonly due to respiratory causes.

Lack of iodine in Indian pregnant women leading to low IQ in babies
 
As the world will celebrate Global Iodine Deficiency Disorders Prevention Day on October 21, India will have more number of children born with low IQ level due to the element's deficiency in pregnant women, experts have revealed. This was observed during a review of recent major studies related to iodine nutrition of pregnant women in India conducted by a team of researchers from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and Indian Coalition for Control of Iodine Deficiency Disorders (ICCIDD). According to World Health Organisation (WHO), iodine at critical stages of foetal life and early childhood remains single most important and preventable causes of mental retardation. Pregnancy is associated with profound changes in thyroid function and consequently, requirements of iodine are increased. Thus, it is imperative to their Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) status to ensure optimal brain development of the foetus. (Source: http://news.webindia123.com)

Intervention improves outlook in type 2 diabetes

A program designed to help people with type 2 diabetes lose and keep off extra weight led to improved diabetes control and cardiovascular disease risk factors. The finding suggests that lifestyle changes can have long–term benefits for overweight and obese people with diabetes. Type 2 diabetes, which accounts for up to 95% of all diabetes cases, is strongly linked with excess weight and inactivity. Past studies have shown the short–term benefits of lifestyle interventions to help people with diabetes control their weight. The Look AHEAD (Action for Health in Diabetes) trial, chaired by Dr. Rena Wing of the Miriam Hospital/Brown Medical School aims to look at the long-term effects. The ongoing study is sponsored by NIH’s National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), along with NIH’s National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Scientists identify novel role for lipids in pneumonia

To learn more about at how bacterial pneumonia harms the lungs at the molecular level, a research team led by Dr. Rama Mallampalli at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine took a closer look at the fluid that naturally bathes the airways and tiny air sacs. The study was supported primarily by NIH’s National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. As reported in the October 2010 issue of Nature Medicine, the researchers analyzed lung fluid from humans and mice with pneumonia. Abnormally high levels of a fatty molecule, or lipid, called cardiolipin were found. Cardiolipin is typically found in the outer membranes of mitochondria and bacteria, but it’s also known to be a minor component of healthy lung fluid. When the scientists administered cardiolipin to mice, the animals’ lung function declined and the resulting tissue damage appeared similar to human pneumonia. Additional experiments confirmed that elevated cardiolipin appears to harm lung tissue.

Eight virus types cause almost all cervical cancer

Doctors have identified the eight human papillomavirus (HPV) types responsible for more than 90 percent of cervical cancer cases worldwide and say they should be the targets for the next generation of vaccines. GlaxoSmithKline and Merck & Co. already make vaccines against HPV strains that cause many cases of cervical cancer, which is the second most common cancer in women worldwide and is expected to kill 328,000 this year. An international team of scientists led by Silvia de Sanjose of the Catalan Institute of Oncology in Barcelona examined which types of HPV contributed most to the global incidence of the disease. Their results, published in The Lancet, showed that eight HPV types (types 16, 18, 45, 33, 31, 52, 58, and 35) in descending order of frequency were responsible for more than 90 % of cases.

FDA approves Botox to treat chronic migraine

The US FDA has approved Botox injection to prevent headaches in adult patients with chronic migraine. Chronic migraine is defined as having a history of migraine and experiencing a headache on most days of the month. To treat chronic migraines, Botox is given approximately every 12 weeks as multiple injections around the head and neck to try to dull future headache symptoms. Botox has not been shown to work for the treatment of migraine headaches that occur 14 days or less per month, or for other forms of headache.

  Hepatology Update

Dr. Neelam Mohan, Director Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Liver Transplantation, Medanta – The Medicity

Is the Kasai procedure a cure for biliary atresia?

Unfortunately, despite bile flow, the Kasai procedure is not a cure for biliary atresia. For reasons which are still unknown, liver damage often continues and, eventually, cirrhosis and its complications appear. Data regarding outcome from centers worldwide widely vary. The initial success rate of Kasai portoenterostomy (for achieving bile flow) is 60–80%. Clearly, the most critical determinant of outcome remains age at the time of operation. Although individual centers have reported favorable surgical results in some infants older than 3 months, patients are significantly less likely to require early liver transplantation if the portoenterostomy is performed when they are younger than 10 weeks. In the postoperative period, the rate of decline in serum bilirubin levels directly correlates with a positive prognosis.
  Infertility Update

Dr. Kaberi Banerjee, Infertility and IVF Specialist Max Hospital; Director Precious Baby Foundation

Is there anything women should beware of?

Beware of "fertility specialists" who deliver babies. Beware of doctors who dismiss your concerns or take the attitude that he/she knows best what’s best for you. Beware of doctors who don’t respond to your questions or return your calls. Beware of doctors who focus on the services offered their clinics even though your reading has alerted you to a treatment appropriate for your diagnosis that isn’t mentioned. Most of all, beware of being complacent. You are your own best advocate, and it is your responsibility to educate yourself. There are so many sources of good information about the treatment and prevention of infertility, use them. Ask your doctor questions. Participate in your own treatment plan. Be in charge of your own fertility.

Meta–Analysis adds to evidence favoring compression–only CPR by bystanders

A Lancet meta–analysis adds to mounting evidence that chest–compression–only CPR improves survival over standard CPR when given by dispatcher–assisted bystanders. Researchers combined data from three randomized trials of dispatcher-assisted CPR for adults with out–of–hospital cardiac arrest and found that survival was significantly higher with chest compressions alone than with compressions plus rescue breathing (14% vs. 12%).

Analysis of data from seven observational studies, however, found no difference between the methods (these studies did not examine dispatcher-assisted CPR). The authors conclude: "Emergency medical services dispatch should instruct bystanders to focus on chest–compression–only CPR in adults with out–of hospital cardiac arrest. However, whether chest–compression–only CPR should be recommended for unassisted lay bystander CPR is unclear."

Term Insurance

Every earning person, whether salaried or self employed, who has dependent persons on him/her, must have term insurance. Ideally, the sum insured should be 5 times of annual income of the person. Usually, we are reluctant to take personal insurance because we will not get back the premium once paid. But consider a scenario where an earning member of family suddenly meets with a fatal accident. At that time, the premium amount will appear paltry compared to Sum insured. Consider this: For a young doctor aged 28 years, for an insured sum of Rs 1 crore, the cheapest term insurance yearly premium (taken online) would be approximately Rs. 8000/– (Rs Eight Thousand only) Now you know why you should do the term insurance ASAP.

  An Inspirational Story

House of 1000 Mirrors

Long ago in a small, far away village, there was place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit.

When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the House, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often."

In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again."

All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet?
