Depression linked to paralysis

Patients with depression are more likely to have paralysis (stroke) than mentally healthy people and their strokes are more likely to be fatal, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The researchers looked at data from 28 studies of more than 300,000 people. Over a follow–up period that ranged for two to 29 years, there were 8,478 strokes. Depression was associated with a 45 percent increased risk for stroke and a 55 percent raised risk for fatal stroke. Depression was linked to a 25 percent higher risk for ischemic stroke.

3.9% of stroke cases in the US could be attributable to depression.

FDA okays new use for rare blood disorder drug

The FDA has approved the blood disorder drug eculizumab (Soliris) for treatment of atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (aHUS), a rare pediatric blood disease that can cause renal failure. The new indication marks the orphan drug’s second approval for a rare blood disorder. Eculizumab’s first approval was for treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. (Source: Medpage Today)

ECCO–ESMO: Hospitalization for BPH Linked to prostate Ca

Patients who are hospitalized or have surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) appear to be at higher risk for developing prostate cancer, researchers said here. In a study utilizing a large Danish database, the overall risk of prostate cancer was 2.2–fold higher (Hazard ratio 2.22, 95% CI 2.13 to 2.31) if a man was hospitalized for symptoms of BPH, said Stig Bojesen, MD, of Copenhagen University Hospital, Herlev, Denmark. The study was presented at the European Multidisciplinary Cancer Conference, formerly known as the Congress of the European Cancer Organizations and Congress of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ECCO–ESMO).

Remicade gets FDA OK for ulcerative colitis in kids

The FDA has expanded the marketing indication for infliximab (Remicade) to include treatment of moderate to severe ulcerative colitis in children older than six who have not responded to conventional treatment. The FDA based its decision on data from an open–label, multi–center, randomized study of 60 children ages six to 17. In addition to the new indication for pediatric ulcerative colitis, infliximab, which is a tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blocker, is already approved for treatment of Crohn’s disease in both children (older than six) and adults, and for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, and plaque psoriasis in adults. But as with other immune–modulating therapies, infliximab treatment is associated with an increased risk for developing infections, including tuberculosis as well as infections caused by viruses, fungi, or bacteria. The drug carries a boxed warning, and the FDA said there "have been cases of unusual cancers reported in adolescent and young adult patients using TNF–blocking agents." (Source: Medpage Today)

AED battery failures play role in cardiac deaths

Over 15 years, 1,284 cardiac arrest deaths have been connected to the failure of automated external defibrillators (AEDs), according to a study published online last month in Annals of Emergency Medicine. One–quarter of those AED failures were due to battery failures. Researchers analyzed reports to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about all adverse events connected to the use of an AED between January 1993 and October 2008. Of the 40,787 AED–related events reported to the FDA, 1,150 adverse events connected to fatalities were reported. Almost half (45 percent) of failures occurred during the attempt to charge and deliver a recommended shock to the person in cardiac arrest. Battery power problems accounted for 23.2 percent of the failures The report noted that in 54 cases, the AED’s batteries were low. In 110 cases, the AED suddenly powered off while in 37 cases, the AED never came on at all. In 252 cases, the AED did not complete the rhythm analysis, and in 524 cases, the AED did not deliver the recommended shock. Problems with pads and connectors accounted for 23.7 percent of the failures.

Can heart patients take Viagra group of drugs Vardenafil and tadalafil?

Tadalafil has the advantage of a longer duration of action. Both drugs and sildenafil potentiate the BP lowering response to nitrates. This interaction lasts 24 hours with vardenafil and up to 48 hours with tadalafil. Tadalafil, vardenafil and sildenafil are contraindicated with concomitant nitrate use.

    Legal Question of the Day

(Contributed by Dr MC Gupta, Advocate)

Please answer the following queries about post-MBBS certificate/diploma courses offered by IGNOU and other universities:

  • Is MCI recognition/approval not necessary for courses offered by IGNOU/other universities?
  • Are such courses valid for practice?

Ans.

  1. MCI deals only with degree and diploma courses. It does not deal with certificate courses.
  2. No university needs any approval from the MCI for starting a certificate or diploma course. If the university offers the course and the students join it on their own without any false assurance, there can be no objection to it unless some law is violated. It is a sort of contract between the student and the university. The two are free to enter into a contract.
  3. If a university wants its course to be recognised by the MCI, it would make a specific request which may be granted or refused as per rules. Refusal does not mean that the university is doing some illegality by offering the course or the students are doing something wrong by joining the course.
  4. A person who has undergone such a course, say a course in rural surgery or cardiology offered by the IGNOU, can do two things:
    • He may hold out in his letterhead, prescription slip etc. as:
      Dr. ABC, Cardiologist
      This would be violative of MCI Regulations, 2002.
    • He may hold out in his letterhead, prescription slip etc. as:
      Dr. ABC, MBBS, Diploma in Cardiology (IGNOU)
      This would not violate any law.
  5. Such a person should practice cardiology only to the extent he has been trained and should not over–reach. It is not a crime for an MBBS to treat a patient of heart disease. He is expected to do so. If he has a Diploma in cardiology from the IGNOU in addition, he is likely to do his expected job even better. The bottom line is that he should not start doing cardiac cath etc. on the basis of his IGNOU qualification since this would amount to over–reach. Whether he has committed a wrong would be decided by the court or the medical council depending upon where the complaint is lodged. If he has committed no negligence and has not openly held out as a cardiologist, he has nothing to be afraid of.

    An Inspirational Story

(Dr Anil Kumar Jain)

Duty bound (Part 1)

Long ago, the Devas and the Asuras fought all the time for the lordship of the three worlds. The Asuras were carefree and happy as long as Shukracharya, their preceptor, was with them. The valiant Devas, tired of the unequal struggle, went to Kach, the handsome son of Brihaspati, preceptor of the Devas and asked him to go to Shukracharya and learn the secret of Mritasanjibani.

The obedient and dutiful Kacha immediately set out to meet Shukracharya. He humbly presented himself before the great wise man, introduced himself as the son of Brihaspati, and asked to become his disciple.
Shukracharya was a true teacher. He immediately recognized Kacha’s brilliance as a student. Shukracharya did not differentiate between his students. He gave Kacha a warm welcome and accepted him as his pupil.
Shukracharya had a daughter, Devayani, whom he loved dearly. He introduced Kacha to his daughter saying, "Kacha has vowed to be my pupil till the period of his studies is over."

All learning in those days was handed down by word of mouth. The pupil lived with his guru’s family as one of the household. In return for his education, the pupil served his guru with love and devotion. However, Shukracharya was very busy either at court or he was deep in meditation. So Kacha helped Devayani with her daily chores and watched after her.

Within a few days of his arrival, Kacha found himself spending all his leisure hours in the company of the lively Devayani. Devayani was slowly drawn towards Kacha and they fell in love. Shukracharya liked Kacha because he was an attentive disciple.

As the years passed, the Asuras became suspicious of Kacha. They wanted to get rid of him. One day as Kacha was attending Shukracharya’s cattle, the Asuras fell upon him and slew him. Then they cut him into pieces and fed his flesh to their dogs.

When Kacha did not come home at the normal hour, Devayani became alarmed. When the cattle came back without Kacha she ran in a panic to her father and told him that Kacha was missing. Shukracharya closed his eyes and to the great relief of Devayani, Kacha came back to life and appeared before her. When Devayani inquired about his disappearance, Kacha tried to explain in a puzzled voice, "I was killed by the Asuras but I do not know how I came back to life?" Shukracharya just smiled.

The love between Kacha and Devayani grew day by day. The Asuras were worried. They guessed right. Kacha was there to learn the secret of Mritasanjibani.

One day Devayani asked Kacha to get her a particular flower that only grows in the deep forest. Kacha went for it. The Asuras followed him and once again killed him. But this time they carried his body to a secluded spot, grounded up into a paste, and dissolved it in the water of the ocean.

Devayani waited and waited. When Kacha did not return she went again to her father. Shukracharya meditated and once again used the secret knowledge to revive Kacha. Devayani was overjoyed. The Asuras were now at their wits end. "How can we kill Kacha? Every time we kill him, his guru brings him to life!"

They went to one of the senior Asuras and asked him how to destroy Kacha for good. The senior Asura gave them an idea. The next day, when Kacha went out with the cattle, they again slew him. This time then burnt him in the jungle. Then they took the ashes home and mixed it in a wine which Shukracharya was very fond of. They took the drink to Shukracharya for a taste. Shukracharya loved it. He immediately drank it and blessed the Asuras.

When the cattle once again returned home without Kacha Devajani knew what had happened. "Will Kacha ever be mine?" she asked herself "The Asuras will never leave him alone!" She went to Shukracharya and wept. "Father, without Kacha I am as good as dead, please bring him back to life." Shukracharya waited for a while thinking. "It is no good to bring Kacha to life. The Asuras will only kill him again."

    Malaria Update

AC Dhariwal, Hitendrasinh G Thakor, Directorate of NVBDCP, New Delhi

How can one suspect/diagnose a case of malaria?

When a patient presents with fever associated with rigors, chills, muscle aches, and headache, you have to suspect malaria. In typical cases, cycles of chills, fever, and sweating that are repeated every one, two, or three days are seen. Occasionally, there can be nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, and yellowing (jaundice) of the skin and whites of the eyes due to destruction of red blood cells and liver cells. Many cases have chills and rigors, but the pattern described in classical texts with paroxysms every second day is not always present. Prodromes with headache and lassitude lasting 1 to 2 days are common. Vomiting is particularly common in children. The symptoms of malaria are uncharacteristic and especially in the early stages they are indistinguishable from for example arboviral fevers and typhoid fever.

Gratuitous medical services–rendering emergency medical care at scene of accident………9

The legal and ethical duty which is imposed on the doctor to exercise due skill and care only arises where there is a doctor/patient relationship come in contractual existence as per Indian evidence Act.

  • If a doctor is passing/crossing the scene of an road traffic accident/any medical emergency in which some person has been injured/sick and is in need of urgent medical/surgical attention/intervention to save the life or limb of the injured he/she would not be held to have been negligent, if suppose he does not render/provide medical assistance to the patient for violation of civil/criminal or consumer law, as no doctor/patient relationship has been established/came in force for medical care delivery and in consequences the doctor owes the patient no legal duty towards the injured person.
  • If, however, the doctor goes to the medical assistance of a person who is injured in an accident revealing/pronouncing himself as doctor then a doctor/patient relationship is at once established in implied manner and the doctor become bound down ethically and has a duty to exercise reasonable/required standard skill and care in providing medical care at that length of situation regardless of whether or not his medical services are being given gratuitously.
  • Many advance country states that when any physician gratuitously advises medical personnel at the scene of an emergency episode by direct voice contact, to render medical assistance based upon information received by voice or biotelemetry equipment, the actions ordered taken by the physician to sustain life or reduce disability shall not be considered liable when the actions are within the established medical procedures
  • the American Medical Association, Alabama state trooper, medical aidman functioning as a part of the military assistance to safety and traffic program, chiropractor, or public education employee gratuitously and in good faith, renders first aid or emergency care at the scene of an accident, casualty, or disaster to a person injured therein, he or she shall not be liable for any civil damages as a result of his or her acts or omissions in rendering first aid or emergency care, nor shall he or she be liable for any civil damages as a result of any act or failure to act to provide or arrange for further medical treatment or care for the injured person.

Singhara flour–a favourite Navratra diet

In Navratra fasts, one has to omit wheat flour from the diet and substitute it with buckwheat flour (kuttu flour) or water chestnut (Singhara flour) said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr K K Aggarwal President Heart care Foundation of India and MTNL Perfect Health Mela. Singhara is not a cereal but a fruit and hence a good substitute for a Navratra fast where cereals are not to be eaten.

  1. Singhara flour is prepared from Singhara or Water Chestnut.
  2. Singhara are floating annual aquatic plants, growing in slow–moving water up to 5 meters deep. The plant bears ornately shaped fruits containing a single very large starchy seed.
  3. The seeds or nuts are boiled and sold as street side snack or eaten raw.
  4. The flour is made from dried, ground water chestnuts. The nuts are boiled, peeled, dried then ground into flour. The flour is bright white fine powder; it is actually a starch rather than flour.
  5. The flour is primarily use as a thickener.
  6. The flour is used as food in Navratra and consumed as a phalahar (fruit) diet.
  7. It is an excellent source of energy and provides 115 kcals per 100g.
  8. The glycemic index (GI) for chestnut is 60. Low GI foods have a GI value less than 55; medium GI foods have a GI value between 55 and 69 and high GI foods have GI value greater than 70.
  9. Chestnuts are relatively low in net carbs (total carbohydrate minus dietary fiber). It is included in many low carb diets.
  10. Since its gluten–free, chestnut flour is a cooking option for people with celiac disease or other gluten intolerances or allergies.
  11. Chestnuts do not contain the fat that regular nuts have.
  12. It contains less carbohydrate than white flour.
  13. People with tree nut allergies should take care to avoid chestnut flour. It may cause an allergic reaction.
  14. Flour made from chestnuts is typically more difficult to locate in many areas as well as more expensive than white flour
  15. One should not eat deep fried chestnut flour pooris or paranthas.
  16. One should not use trans fats vegetables oils to cook bread made of chestnut flour.
  17. One should buy only branded flour as left over flour of previous year may cause food poisoning.
  18. According Ayurveda, chestnut flour has cooling and buckwheat flour has hot properties.
  19. Both chestnut flour and buckwheat flours can be combined.
  20. One should eat phalahar once a week and atleast 80 days in a year.
