No Gain with Intensive Glucose Control in ICU

There’s no need to use intensive insulin therapy to control blood glucose in hospitalized patients –– with or without known diabetes –– according to new clinical practice guidelines from the American College of Physicians. A review of the literature, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, found intensive insulin therapy did not offer short– or long–term mortality benefits, leading the ACP to recommend against its use to manage hyperglycemia in ICU patients.

Spine repair effective in cancer patients

Balloon kyphoplasty reduced pain and improved function in cancer patients with vertebral compression fractures in a randomized trial, researchers said. Roland–Morris Disability scores declined by half after one month in patients undergoing the procedure, whereas those receiving nonsurgical management had almost no change (P<0.0001), according to James Berenson, MD, of the Institute for Myeloma and Bone Cancer Research in West Hollywood, Calif., and colleagues. The kyphoplasty group also had significant reductions after one month, relative to the control group, in tangible indications of functional status including their need for bed rest, walking aids, bracing, and medications, they reported online in Lancet Oncology.

Diet and exercise go hand–in–hand for maintaining heart health

When it comes to heart health, moderate exercise, not a strenuous workout session, may be the best medicine, no matter what the age group. The stress of a high–intensity workout, said Dr. Henry Cusnir, interventional cardiologist at University Hospital and Medical Center in Tamarac, ‘raises blood pressure to levels that are not healthy’ and impose stress on the aorta and heart.

Less than half a kilogram at birth, Sayali is born fighter

Sayali, a three–month old baby girl, is a fighter since her birth five months ago. Sharing her date of birth with the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi, Sayali didn't even weigh half a kilogram at the time of birth. At a mere 495 kilograms on debuting in the world, Sayali has become the smallest and lightest surviving baby in the country. Her miniature frame at the time of birth could be gauged from the fact that, at the time of her birth Sayali’s feet were barely half the size of an adult finger. A premature child at 27 weeks of pregnancy, Sayali was discharged after being kept for three months in the intensive care at ONP Tulip Hospital in the city on Friday. She currently weighs 2.4 kg. "Sayali weighed only 495 grams and was a foot long at the time of birth," said neonatologist Tushar Parikh, in–charge of the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at ONP Tulip Hospital here. "To save a baby of this size was challenging. There is no reported survival of a baby weighing this little in India. The last reported smallest surviving baby weighed 540 grams at birth."

Exercise can reduce risk of breast, colon cancers

Voxy.co.nz recently reported that undertaking 150 minutes a week of moderate physical activity can reduce the risk of breast and colon cancers, according to the new Global Recommendations on Physical Activity for Health released by the World Health Organization (WHO) last week on World Cancer Day. "Physical activity has a strong role to play in reducing the incidence of certain cancers," says Dr Ala Alwan, WHO’s Assistant Director–General for Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health. "Physical inactivity is the fourth leading risk factor for all global deaths, with 31% of the world's population not physically active."

    Infertility Update

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

How many people are affected by infertility?

Estimates are that one in six couples is affected by some measure of infertility. However, that number may be very deceptive. Many couples choose to lead child–free lives rather than look for treatment for their infertility, and we believe they are rarely included in infertility estimates. Others suffer frequent pregnancy losses which are, in a way, a form of infertility and are not technically considered "infertile" because they are able to conceive. INCIID is in the process of creating a survey designed to provide new insights about who is infertile, what kinds of infertility they are experiencing, what kinds of treatments have been successful for specific diagnoses, and much more. This survey will be conducted online, and is expected to be a source of important clinical information for practitioners as well as consumers.

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

What are the predisposing causes of liver abscess in children?

Children have unique predisposing causes for liver abscesses:–

  • Parasitic Infestations: Almost all parasites including ascariasis, schistosomiasis, fascioliasis, trichuris trichura, necator, ancylostoma and toxocara infestation have been reported as association for liver abscess. Experimental studies have shown that bacteremia specially from Staphylococcus and salmonella species in presence of parasitic infestation predisposes to liver abscess formation. Also, liver granulomas around parasites, their larvae and eggs are believed to trap bacteria in the grannulomatous reaction around them serving as nidus.
  • Genetic Disorders like: Papillon–Leferve syndrome, Chronic Grannulomatous Disease (CGD) deficiencies in C1 complement, Hyper Immunoglobulin E syndrome
  • Skin infections
  • Protein Calorie malnutrition.
  • Abdominal infections and Liver abscesses.
  • Post trauma

What are the reasons for failure to detect poison in a chemical analysis?

In some cases, no trace of poison is found on analysis although from other circumstances, it is quite certain that poison was the cause of illness or death. The possible explanation of negative finding is:

  • The poison may have been eliminated due to vomiting, stomach wash or diarrhea.
  • The whole of the poison may have disappeared from the lungs by evaporation or oxidation.
  • The poison after absorption may be detoxified, conjugated and eliminated from the system
  • Some drugs are rapidly metabolized, making extraction difficult.
  • Biological toxins and venoms which may be protein in nature cannot be separated from body tissues.
  • Some organic poisons, especially alkaloids, may by oxidation during life, or due to faulty preservation, or a long interval of time, or from decomposition of the body, may deteriorate and cannot be detected.
  • If the poison acts slowly and death is delayed following production of irreversible organic changes, the poison may be completely metabolized and excreted.
  • Many drugs may be present in very small amounts and these may require considerable amount of viscera for their identification.
  • When the wrong or insufficient material sent for analysis.
 
    ENT Update

Dr. Aru Handa MS, DNB (Dept Co–coordinator and Senior Consultant, Dept. of ENT, Moolchand Medcity)

What is the treatment for persistent watering of the eyes and what is the role of ENT surgeon in this ?

Lacrimal pathway from the eyes drains into the nose. Epiphora or watering of the eyes can be due to blockage of lacrimal pathway thus not allowing outflow of tears from the eyes to nose. The blockage can present clinically as epiphora or repeated infection and swelling at the medial canthus of the eye.

When the blockage is at the level of the lacrimal sac or nasolacrimal duct, dacryocystorhinostomy is done i.e. an opening of the lacrimal sac into the nose is made. Since most of the pathway is anatomically related to the nose, the surgery can very easily be done through nose by nasal endoscopic surgeon. The nasal endoscopic approach is a good alternative to the external approach as the results are better, there is no external scar and associated nasal pathology like deviated septum or sinusitis can be corrected in the same sitting.

 
    Legal Question of the Day

(Contributed by Dr Akash Deep)

Q. I joined a private medical college as Faculty without signing an agreement. I want to resign and get experience certificate and relieving order but the employer is not accepting my resignation. How can I resign and get the experience certificate and relieving order?

Ans.

  • In law, even an oral contract is valid. Contract has three parts: offer, acceptance and consideration. In your case, the advertisement or the letter inviting for interview etc. is the offer; your initial joining report (or any other proof that you have worked) is the acceptance; Your pay slip/cheque/salary receipt is the consideration. So the contract/agreement is very much there.
  • Relieving order should not be absolutely necessary anywhere. If the new employer wants it, you can always say that the old employer did not give the same and you can, if necessary, submit an affidavit that you are not in service but were in service for the period concerned and the relieving order was not given by the employer. You may submit a copy of your resignation letter along with the affidavit.
  • Experience certificate should not be absolutely necessary. The joining letter and the resignation letter along with the proof of salary drawn during the period of employment should be sufficient proof of employment and experience.
  • Resignation can be sent by speed post/registered post or both along with proof of posting and delivery. For additional caution, you can also send by courier and under certificate of posting and by e mail and fax. You should mention in the resignation letter that the experience certificate and relieving order may be given to you without delay. It is preferable to send the resignation letter under the guidance of a lawyer.
  • You should also notify the MCI that you have left the service of the medical college concerned, attaching a copy of the resignation letter and requesting the MCI to ensure that, in view of the fact that you have not been issued a relieving letter, the college may not misrepresent to the MCI that you are still in service.
  • With the strength of all the above, if at all you need the experience certificate and relieving order, you can later (after leaving) send a legal notice to the employer to give you the same.
  • If the employer does not respond to your legal notice, you may go to the court. It may be advisable to make the State government; the University; and, the MCI as co–respondents. A good lawyer would take care of this when drafting the request/representation/legal notice for you.

Screening for lung cancer

In a randomized trial involving over 3,000 individuals at high risk for lung cancer, the cumulative probability of a false positive finding after two rounds of annual screening by low–dose CT was 33 percent and after two annual chest x–rays was 15 percent. Seven percent of CT screening participants underwent at least one invasive procedure (usually bronchoscopy) as a result of a false positive finding.

 
    IJCP Special

Dr Good Dr Bad

Situation: A patient with painful diabetic neuropathy came with postural hypotension.
Dr Bad: The two are unrelated conditions.
Dr Good: It is due to autonomic dysfunction.
Lesson: Painful diabetic neuropathy is associated with significantly greater autonomic dysfunction than painless diabetic neuropathy. The greater autonomic dysfunction seen in painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) may reflect more predominant small fiber involvement and also adds to the growing evidence of its role in the pathophysiology of painful DPN.

Make Sure

Situation: A patient with diabetes shows deteriorating kidney function.
Reaction: Oh my God! His HbAIc is very high?
Lesson: Make sure that strict glycemic control is maintained in patients with type 2 diabetes in order to delay vascular complications.

Exercise tips

Balance tends to erode over time, and regularly performing balance exercises is one of the best ways to protect against falls that lead to temporary or permanent disability. Balance exercises take only a few minutes and often fit easily into the warm–up portion of a workout. Many strength–training exercises also serve as balance exercises. Or balance–enhancing movements may simply be woven into other forms of exercise, such as tai chi, yoga, and Pilates.

An Inspirational Story
(Contributed by Dr GM Singh)

Touching life story……

A young man was getting ready to graduate college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer’s showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.

As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box.

Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather–bound Bible. Angrily, he raised his voice at his father and said, "With all your money you give me a Bible?" and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy book.

Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care things. When he arrived at his father’s house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart.

He began to search his father’s important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. As he read those words, a car key dropped from an envelope taped behind the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer’s name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words…PAID IN FULL.

How many times do we miss God’s blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?

Frying Eggs

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly her husband burst into the kitchen. "Careful… CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They’re going to STICK! Careful…CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you’re cooking! Never!

The wife stared at him. "What the heck is wrong with you? You think I don’t know how to fry a couple of eggs?" The husband calmly replied, "I wanted to show you what it feels like when I’m driving!!!

  1. Honestly speaking I had heard a lot that many of our professional colleagues claimed that they start their day with emedinews but due to some other preoccupations I never took it regularly. Of late I have started following it regularly. I find it quite fascinating and useful. I would like to contribute some articles relevant for General Practitioners. I wish more and more GPs become computer savvy and make use any such ereading material. It will be worthwhile to promote computer literacy: Dr. Naresh Chawla, Past President, Delhi Medical Association, Chief Promoter, GP Forum

MP3 Noise pollution: Safety guidelines for "leisure–time" noise exposure

Too much noise not only pollutes the environment; it can permanently damage your hearing, said Dr. K.K. Aggarwal Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee and President, Heart Care Foundation of India.

Rule of Thumb: MP3 users should set the volume no higher than 60 percent of its full capacity when using "ear buds" style headphones, like those that come with iPods. With over–the–ear headphones, one can use 70 percent as the maximum as per journal of Pediatrics.

Blasting an MP3 player could harm the hearing. Parents should look for signs of a problem, like when a child complains of ringing in the ears or sounds being "muffled".

Prolonged exposure to sounds louder than 85 decibels (dB) can cause gradual hearing loss. A normal conversation is about 60 dB. Many personal stereo systems at maximum level are over 100 dB. Rock concerts and firecrackers can be 140 dB and higher. Noise levels need to reach levels of 120 dB to 140 dB to become uncomfortable or painful.

Manufacturers, should equip MP3 players with an indicator that displays the volume level in terms of decibels, along with a signal –– such as a flashing light –– that goes off when decibel levels reach the danger zone.

Noise–induced hearing loss usually happens slowly, with no pain. Right after exposure to noise, you may notice some "ringing" in your ears. You might have trouble hearing people talk. After several hours or even a few days, these symptoms may go away. However, when you are exposed to loud noise repeatedly, you could have hearing loss that lasts forever.

The louder the sound, the shorter the time period before noise induced hearing loss can occur. Sounds of less than 75 decibels, even after long exposure, are unlikely to cause hearing loss. A good rule of thumb is to avoid noises that are "too loud" and "too close" or that last "too long."

For average factory noise, 85 dB, it takes only 8 hours for noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Other excess levels include: passing motorcycle, 90 dB–8 hours exposure for NIHL, subway train or diesel truck, 100 dB–2 hours exposure, helicopter and power mower 105 dB 1 hour, and, ranking with auto horn, propeller aircraft, and air raid siren, live rock music 90–130 dB 20 minutes.

Listening to music at 110 to 120 decibels damages hearing in less than an hour and a half.

iPOD guidelines

  1. A typical person can safely listen to an iPod for 4.6 hours per day at 70 percent volume using stock earphones
  2. Listening to music at full volume through an iPod for more than five minutes a day using stock earphones can increase the risk of hearing loss in a typical person.
  3. Individuals can safely listen to iPods for 90 minutes a day with the supplied earphones if the volume is at 80 percent of maximum levels without greatly increasing the risk of hearing loss.
  4. The safest limit is 2 hours a day at 50% of the volume.
