Is medical strike really so bad for the public?

  

To strike is a FR under Article 19. Is it illegal in other democracies like USA and UK for doctors to strike? The answer is NO. Where the evidence that strike by doctors is is indeed so bad or harmful?  When doctors in Los Angeles, California went on strike in 1976, the daily number of deaths in the city dropped 18%.

This has been researched and published in the reputed journal “American Journal of Public Health”.

Paper: Impacts of the medical malpractice slowdown in Los Angeles County: January 1976.
J J James: The Los Angeles County (California) physician strike of January 1976 resulted in a partial withdrawal of physician services.  Among recorded impacts were a $17.5 million loss in hospital revenues and an $8.5 million pay loss for hospital employees. Several surveys revealed no evidence of a significant impact on the general public in finding medical care.
 Analysis of emergency room visits and paramedical ambulance calls showed no significant increases during the strike.  County mortality statistics for the strike were not affected. Eighty-eight fatalities among 2,171 patients transferred during the strike were analyzed; a Case Attributable Mortality Probability generated on 21 cases selected for final review by a five-physician multispecialist panel indicated that 29 per cent of the Attributable Mortality could be ascribed to the strike itself and 71 per cent to ongoing "patient dumping" from private sector to County hospitals.  Even if sample attributable mortality rates were generalized to overall county deaths, the resultant figures are below the estimated
range of 55 to 153 deaths that did not occur because of the number of elective operations not performed secondary to the strike. { Excerpts and clue from Dr M C Gupta]

Medical mistakes in Indian movies

Dear all, eMedinewS is starting a special series on ‘Medical mistakes in Indian movies’. We invite all our readers to share with us the following information:

1. Scene/s where the image of the medical profession has been maligned in an unrealistic manner, or
2. Scene/s where medical care and approach has been depicted incorrectly, or
3. Scenes where the medical profession has been portrayed correctly.

Send us the clippings or description of the scenes. This would be a start to a special campaign to re build the image of the medical profession.

Free medicines for all from October

NEW DELHI: India’s ambitious policy to provide free medicines to all patients attending a government health facility across the country will be rolled out from October. Strongly backed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh himself, the free–medicines–for–all scheme — being referred to as the "real game changer" — has received its first financial allocation of Rs 100 crore from the Planning Commission for 2012-13. The entire programme, however, is estimated to cost Rs 28,560 crore over the 12th five year plan. At present, the public sector provides healthcare to 22% of the country’s population. The ministry estimates that this will increase to 52% by 2017 once medicines are provided for free from 1.6 lakh sub-centres, 23,000 primary health centres, 5,000 community health centres and 640 district hospitals. The ministry has sent the National List of Essential Medicines, 2011, (348 drugs which includes anti–AIDS, analgesics, anti–ulcers, anti psychotic, sedatives, anesthetic agents, lipid lowering agents, steroids and anti platelet drugs) to all the states to use as reference. The states, however, have been asked to create their own Essential Drugs List (EDL), keeping in mind the diseases that worst affect them. Around 75% of the funds under the scheme will be borne by the Centre, while the rest will be the state’s responsibility. Around 5% of the district funds will be allowed to be used to purchase drugs outside the EDL. The Cabinet has approved the setting up of a Central Procurement Agency (CPA) for bulk procurement of drugs. The PMO has asked the ministry to set up the CPA as early as possible. At present, 78% of the entire health expenditure in India is from out of pocket (OOP). Purchasing drugs alone accounts for 72% of this OOP expenditure.

Additional secretary in the ministry L C Goyal said a scientific committee will have to draw up the EDL list for the states. They have also been asked to devise standard treatment protocols in order to avoid unnecessary and irrational treatments. Goyal said, "The states will procure drugs directly from manufacturer or importer through an open tender. Companies applying for the tenders will have to have GMP compliance certificate, a no conviction certificate and should have a specified annual turnover. The drugs must carry a not–for–sale label printed on the packaging." He added, "We plan to roll out the game changing programme from October." Goyal said a district–level state–of–the–art warehouse will have to be set up by states to store the drugs and a passport driven system will move the medicines to district hospitals, CHCs and PHCs will then send the drugs to the sub centres. He added, "It is being made mandatory for all doctors in the public sector to prescribe generic drugs and salt names and not brands. Action will be taken against doctors found prescribing brands."

FDA refuses ACS indication for rivaroxaban––for now

The US FDA has failed to approve the new anticoagulant rivaroxaban (Xarelto, Bayer Healthcare/Janssen Pharmaceuticals) for the additional indication of use in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The agency has decided to follow the advice of its Cardiovascular and Renal Drugs Advisory Committee on this, which narrowly voted against recommending approval four weeks ago, based on concerns about missing data from the ATLAS ACS 2 TIMI 51 trial of the factor Xa inhibitor. Instead, the FDA has issued a "complete response letter," requesting more data to help it with its decision. In a press release, Janssen says it is "evaluating" the situation and "will respond to the agency’s questions as quickly as possible." (Source: Medscape)

In accordance with Hindu mythology and beliefs, there are three principal debts – the first is Dev Rin i.e. debt to Gods, second is Rishi Rin i.e. debt to Guru and the third is Pitra Rin or debt to forefathers.

Pitra Rin is the most important debt, which as a ritual everybody follows during Shradhs. When we talk about forefathers, we mean three generations of ancestors

What do you understand by diagnostic laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy is a type of surgery that is performed with a telescope that is attached to a camera (laparoscope). The laparoscope is inserted into 1 to 4 small incisions in your belly. During a laparoscopic surgery, your doctor will be able to view your pelvic organs to see if they, or any other conditions, are contributing to your pain. Some of the conditions your doctor may find are endometriosis, adhesions (scar tissue), appendicitis (infection of the appendix), or a hernia.

(Dr N K Bhatia, Medical Director, Mission Jan Jagriti Blood Bank)

Mechanical infusion devices

Mechanical pumps that deliver infusions at a controlled rate are useful especially for very slow rate of transfusion used for pediatric, neonatal, and selected adult patients. Some pumps use a mechanical screw drive to advance that plunger of a syringe filled with blood; others use roller pumps or other forms of pressure applied to the infusion tubing. Although some can be used with standard blood administration sets, many require special plastic disposable or tubing supplied by the manufacturer.

The manufacturer should be consulted before blood administered with an infusion pump designed for crystalloid or colloid solutions. Many induce hemolysis but of a magnitude that does not adversely affect the patient. Red cell components with high hematocrit and high viscosity are more likely to be hemolysed when infused under pressure than whole blood or red cells prepared in a manner that reduces viscosity. Platelets and granulocytes appear to sustain no adverse effects when infused with a pumping device. Proper training of personnel and appropriate policies for maintenance and quality control should reduce the chances of damage to transfused components.

    An Inspirational Story

(Ms Ritu Sinha)

A bouquet for mother

A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred miles away.

As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing.

He asked her what was wrong and she replied, "I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. But I only have seventy–five cents, and a rose costs two dollars."

The man smiled and said, "Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose."

He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother’s flowers.

As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said, "Yes, please! You can take me to my mother."

She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.

The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the wire order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother’s house.

Situation: A patient came with recurrent headache.
Dr. Bad: It is a sinus headache.
Dr. Good: This could be migraine.
Lesson: Sinus headache is commonly diagnosed by clinicians and self–diagnosed by patients, but acute or chronic sinusitis appears to be an uncommon cause of recurrent headaches, and many patients presenting with sinus headache turn out to have migraine or, less often, tension type headache.

Sleep deprivation ups anxiety levels

The Times of India

Sleep loss markedly exaggerates the degree to which we anticipate impending emotional events, particularly among highly anxious people who are especially vulnerable, according to a new study. Two common features of anxiety disorders are sleep loss and an amplification of emotional response. Results from the new study suggest that these features may not be independent of one another but may interact instead. Researchers from the Sleep and Neuroimaging Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley, used brain scanning on 18 healthy adults in two separate sessions, one after a normal night’s sleep and a second after a night of sleep deprivation. During both sessions, participants were exposed to an emotional task that involved a period of anticipating a potentially negative experience like an unpleasant visual image, or a potentially benign experience like a neutral visual image.

  Legal Question of the day

(Prof. M C Gupta Advocate & Medico–legal Consultant)

I saw a patient in the OPD in 2003. I have received a summon from the magistrate’s court regarding the prescription given. Should I appear in the court?

QUESTION–– I have received a summon from the magistrate’s court to appear as a witness. It contains no details. The police man informed that it concerns a case filed by the wife against the husband and I had allegedly treated the wife as an OPD patient in 2003 and that the summon is meant to confirm my out– patient prescription. Should I appear?

Answer:

  1. There is no question of your not appearing. If a court summons you, you must appear. Not doing so is a punishable offence.
  2. The police man is possibly right. When the woman produces your prescription to substantiate her allegation, the prescription itself must be "proved", which means it must be authenticated as genuine by the one who wrote it. The prosecution lawyer (Public prosecutor) might ask you questions like the following:

    Was this prescription written by you?

    Is it in your handwriting and bears your signature?

    You may answer to these in the affirmative. No other questions may be asked from you.If they are asked, you may apply truthfully without any fear or anxiety.

  Microbial World: The Good and the Bad They Do

(Dr Usha K Baveja, Prof. and Senior Consultant Microbiology, Medanta – The Medicity, Gurgaon)

DPT Vaccine

DPT is a triple antigen combination vaccine, which protects against Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis. DPT vaccine (Adsorbed) is a component of EPI for the primary immunization of infants. It is given alone/in combination with oral polio vaccine at or above the age of 6 weeks. Before going on to the details of this vaccine let us just have a bird’s eye view of the diseases from which this vaccine protects. This is important in view of the many incriminating newspaper reports on the grievous results attributed to the vaccine.

Diphtheria: It is an acute infectious disease of childhood caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae, a bacterium. It may present as sore throat with fever, headache and loss of appetite. On examination, there will be a thick covering in the back of the throat, not easy to remove and may bleed on forced removal. The child can quickly progress to breathing problems, paralysis, heart failure and even death. Though the incidence of diphtheria has greatly reduced after institution of the primary immunization of the infant through the age of 6 years or so, but the disease has not yet been completely wiped out from the world.

Pertussis: Also called whooping cough, it is a highly contagious disease of the respiratory tract and is caused by Bordetella pertussis. The infection starts with features of a common cold but quickly progresses to a severe exhausting cough. It causes coughing spells so bad that it is hard for infants to eat, drink or breathe. It usually lasts for up to 6 – 8 weeks and leaves the child extremely weak and malnourished because of vomiting associated with cough and the disinclination to eat because of the fear of precipitating bout of cough. It can lead to pneumonia, seizures (jerking and staring spells), brain damage and death.

Tetanus: Also know as lockjaw, it causes painful tightening of the muscles, usually all over the body. The disease is caused by Clostridium tetani found in the soil. The spores of these bacteria/bacteria can enter the body through a cut, a bruise or a prick of thorn. The toxin of C. tetani acts on the nervous system, which then affects the muscle and leads to the severe stiffness and spasms that are so characteristic of the disease. It is a very painful and distressing illness. There is "locking" of the jaw so the victim cannot open his mouth or swallow. Tetanus leads to death in up to 2 out of 10 cases.

Prevention of these dreadful diseases with DPT vaccine is extremely important right from infancy.

    Laugh a While

(Dr GM Singh)

A young blonde was on vacation in the depths of Louisiana. She wanted a pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way, but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking. After becoming very frustrated with the "no haggle" attitude of one of the shopkeepers, the blonde shouted, "Maybe I’ll just go out and catch my own alligator so I can get a pair of shoes at a reasonable price!" The shopkeeper said, "By all means, be my guest. Maybe you’ll luck out and catch yourself a big one!" Determined, the blonde turned and headed for the swamps, set on catching herself an alligator.

Later in the day, the shopkeeper is driving home, when he spots the young woman standing waist deep in the water, shotgun in hand. Just then, he sees a huge 9 foot alligator swimming quickly toward her. She takes aim, kills the creature and with a great deal of effort hauls it on to the swamp bank. Lying nearby were several more of the dead creatures. The shopkeeper watches in amazement.

Just then the blonde flips the alligator on it’s back, and frustrated, shouts out, "Damn it, this one isn’t wearing any shoes either!"

 
    Medicolegal Update

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

What are the shock waves in bullet injury?

When bullets produce tracks in dense tissues, such as muscle, liver, spleen and blood, the tissues are compressed ahead of the track by a compression wave, in the form of a shock wave of spherical form. Tissue damage can also be produced at a considerable distance away from the original bullet track. Thus, the urinary bladder, stomach and colon may be ruptured in high velocity wounds situated at a remote distance from the abdominal cavity itself. The site of the permanent local track is marked by tissues which have been totally destroyed, and this is similar to low–velocity bullets. Surrounding this is a layer of necrotic debris caused by the temporary cavitation effect and secondary missiles, highly contaminated by micro–organisms. A variable thickness layer of live tissue surrounds the zone of necrosis, consisting of an inner portion which will prove to be non–viable as a result of the injuries sustained, and an outer portion that will remain viable provided that optimum conditions are provided for healing. Around this zone is the normal tissue.

Heart patients can enjoy sex provided………

Sexual activity in heart patients is associated with a moderate hemodynamic stress and increases the risk of heart attack, said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India. However, the absolute increase in risk is very small. In addition, risk modification can be accomplished with regular physical activity and possibly aspirin and beta–blocker use.

Thus, patients with heart disease who are not deemed to be at high risk should be able to be sexually active after appropriate risk stratification and optimization of therapy and can be safely treated for sexual dysfunction.

Both the Second Princeton Consensus Panel and a consensus statement from the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association concluded that a Viagra–like drug is safe for men with stable coronary artery disease who are not taking nitrates.

There are no clinical differences among the Viagra–like drugs with the exception of a prolonged duration of action with tadalafil.

The Viagra–like drugs are contraindicated as co-prescription with any nitrate preparation and they should also not be taken with alpha–blocking agents. Cardiac patients should be counseled about the interaction with nitrates, even if a Viagra– like drug is not currently prescribed.

If a man who has taken a Viagra–like drug develops chest pain, nitrates should not be administered within 24 hours (or longer in patients with renal or hepatic dysfunction) of sildenafil, 24 hours of vardenafil, or up to 48 hours of tadalafil.

Viagra like drugs can be dangerous.

  1. In patients with active coronary ischemia, even in those who are not taking nitrates (e.g., positive exercise stress test for ischemia)
  2. Patients with heart failure and borderline low blood pressure and/or low volume status
  3. Patients on a complicated multidrug antihypertensive drug regimen Drugs like rifampin (TB) and phenytoin (epilepsy), can be expected to reduce the effectiveness of these drugs.
