Safety of dabigatran

Increasing concerns have been raised about the safety of the orally active direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran. The US FDA and the European Medicines Agency are evaluating post–marketing reports of 256 serious bleeding events leading to death in patients taking dabigatran.

The median age of those with reported bleeding events in 2011 was 80 years, raising a question of safe dosing in older patients, who may also have reduced renal function and other co–morbidities.

A meta–analysis of seven randomized trials indicated that use of dabigatran for a variety of indications (atrial fibrillation, acute coronary syndrome, venous thromboembolism treatment or prophylaxis), when compared with warfarin, enoxaparin, or placebo controls, was associated with a significantly higher risk of myocardial infarction or acute coronary syndrome (Arch Intern Med 2012;172:397).

There is a safety concern of dabigatran in trauma patients, older patients, and those with renal disease (N Engl J Med 2011;365:2039) (UptoDate)

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.

Separated twins recovering well

BHOPAL: A week after the conjoined twins were separated, the two are responding well to treatment and recovering well bringing back relief and smiles on the faces of doctors and paramedical staff at the Multispeciality hospital in Padhar in Betul district. A team of doctors and paramedics from India and abroad operated upon the conjoined twins in a 12–hour operation on June 20. Stuti smiled and watched cartoons on TV on Tuesday while Aradhna, her sister, is recuperating albeit slowly. The operation took place at Padhar hospital, though there was an offer from Great Ormond Street, one of the best hospitals of the world in London with an expertise to separate conjoined twins. The whole staff of the hospital is so much attached to the now separated conjoined twins, that they are watching each and every movement made by the two kids in the hospital bed. Dr Rajiv Choudhrie, the hospital superintendent told TOI, "Stuti is good. She was hungry and had her food. She watches cartoons on TV that we have specially arranged for her. She gets upset only when someone comes in front of TV obstructing her vision." He said that Aradhna is also doing well but her recovery is slow. "The position in which the two twins were joined from the chest and abdomen, after the surgery the effect on Aradhna's body was more than that of Stuti," the doctor explained.

As they were joined from the chest, both would take some time to get used to breathing individually, he explained. Both are being fed orally semi elemental diet and partly pre– digested easy– for–intestine food, he said. Dr Choudhrie said that there was an offer from Great Ormond Street for the surgery and they were ready to meet all the expenses too. But we decided to do it. "May be more because of emotional attachment", he said. The entire staff is working over time to see the twins get normal." (Source: TOI, Jun 27, 2012)

Newer vitamin D tests often inaccurate: study

Two new lab tests to measure blood levels of vitamin D are inaccurate more than 40% of the time, according to a new study. Researchers say newer tests tend to overestimate the number of people who are deficient in vitamin D, a problem that could cause patients to be anxious about their health and may lead to over–treatment. The study, which was presented at ENDO 2012, the annual meeting of the endocrine society in Houston, is adding to concerns felt in many laboratories and hospitals around the country that the results of vitamin D tests, which have become some of the most frequently ordered blood tests in medicine, are widely unreliable.

FDA approves stent for glaucoma

An intraocular stent to improve fluid drainage from the eye in glaucoma patients has won FDA approval, the agency said. The iStent Trabecular Micro–Bypass Stent System, Model GTS100R/L, was approved for implantation during the course of cataract surgery in patients with mild to moderate open–angle glaucoma who are currently receiving drugs to reduce intraocular pressure. According to the FDA, the product is a small titanium tube placed through the meshwork of tissue at the joint between the iris and the cornea, through which fluid normally drains from the anterior portion of the eye into a structure known as Schlemm’s canal. In glaucoma, the passageway is partly or completely blocked, causing intraocular pressure to rise and eventually leading to optic nerve damage. (Source: Medpage Today)

Last DSM–5 public review period ends with 2000 comments

The latest and final public comment period for the upcoming Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM–5) ended on June 15 — but not before logging 2298 responses from around the world, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) reports.

This was the third public comment period that has been opened for online feedback regarding the manual’s proposed criteria changes. To date, there have been a total of 15,000 public comments posted. "Every comment period has provided valuable perspective from a wide range of professionals, consumers, and advocates," said Dilip V. Jeste, MD, president of the APA, in a release. "We are grateful for their participation and willingness to review the draft proposals and to share their opinions and experiences.

Exchanging Business Cards: Give it due respect

  1. A business card is a powerful tool for self–advertisement.
  2. Never offer your business card at the start of conversation with a stranger. Let him or her get interested in you before you offer your card.
  3. Never give the card unless someone is interested in it. Ask "can I give my business card to you" or "Can I have your business card"
  4. Never distribute your business card as if you are dealing playing cards.

    An Inspirational Story

(Dr GM Singh)

One of my fondest memories as a child is going by the river and sitting idly on the bank. There I would enjoy the peace and quiet, watch the water rush downstream, and listen to the chirps of birds and the rustling of leaves in the trees. I would also watch the bamboo trees bend under pressure from the wind and watch them return gracefully to their upright or original position after the wind had died down.

When I think about the bamboo tree’s ability to bounce back or return to its original position, the word resilience comes to mind. When used in reference to a person this word means the ability to readily recover from shock, depression or any other situation that stretches the limits of a person’s emotions. Have you ever felt like you are about to snap? Have you ever felt like you are at your breaking point? Thankfully, you have survived the experience to live to talk about it.

During the experience you probably felt a mix of emotions that threatened your health. You felt emotionally drained, mentally exhausted and you most likely endured unpleasant physical symptoms.

Life is a mixture of good times and bad times, happy moments and unhappy moments. The next time you are experiencing one of those bad times or unhappy moments that take you close to your breaking point, bend but don’t break. Try your best not to let the situation get the best of you.

A measure of hope will take you through the unpleasant ordeal. With hope for a better tomorrow or a better situation, things may not be as bad as they seem to be. The unpleasant ordeal may be easier to deal with if the end result is worth having.

If the going gets tough and you are at your breaking point, show resilience. Like the bamboo tree, bend, but don’t break!

Study finds a correlation between going to the gym and a higher salary

Cleveland State University associate professor Billy (Vasilios) D. Kosteas, who specializes in International Economics, Labor Economics and Development Economics, wrote a paper discovering those who regularly exercise on average earn 9% more than those who do not. He explained that the purpose was to see if there was a relationship between being in shape and making more money. Kosteas discovered that men average about a 6% increase and women almost double that number, with an 11% rise. "In addition to the positive impacts on heart health, weight and other medical issues, studies show that exercise leads to improved mental function, psychological condition and higher energy levels," he said in an interview with the Daily Mail. "All three of these traits can translate into higher earnings." He used data from 1998 and 2000 from the National Longitudinal Surveys of Youth 1979, which conducted surveys from 1979 to 1994, then in even years after 1994. It is sponsored by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which he says is widely used by labor economists and other researchers.

DPT vaccine

DPT vaccine as per the EPI is given in infants as three doses spaced at an interval of 4–6 weeks. The first dose of primary immunization is given at around 6 weeks of age. Reinforcing injections (booster effect) should be given 12 months after the primary immunization and, one dose also between the ages of 4 to 6 years. If for any reason the first dose of primary immunization is not administered at 6 weeks of age, this schedule should still be followed i.e. primary immunization, three doses of DPT vaccine spaced at intervals of 4 weeks and booster at 12 months and between ages of 4–6 years to be followed. The booster dose given at 4–6 years is not necessary if the fourth primary immunizing dose has been administered after the fourth birthday.

For administration of vaccine always follow the instructions given in the vaccine package insert. Most common is 0.5 mL given intramuscularly with the recommended aseptic precautions. Only sterile needles and syringes preferably disposable should be used for each injection. The vaccine should be shaken well before use and administered by deep intramuscular injection into anterolateral aspect of the upper thigh.

DPT vaccine (adsorbed) should only be used for infants and children through six years of age. For older children and adults, DPT is not recommended.

Choking

When the wealthy businessman choked on a fish bone at a restaurant, he was fortunate that a doctor was seated at a nearby table. Springing up, the doctor skillfully removed the bone and saved his life.

As soon as the fellow had calmed himself and could talk again, he thanked the surgeon enthusiastically and offered to pay him for his services. "Just name the fee," he croaked gratefully.

"Okay," replied the doctor. "How about half of what you’d have offered when the bone was still stuck in your throat?"

What are incised–looking and incised wounds?

The wounds produced by a blunt weapon or by a fall on the hard surface/object, on tense structures/skin covering the bones, such as the scalp, eyebrow, iliac crest, shin, perineum, knee or elbow when the limb is flexed look like incised wounds; however, they are lacerated wounds, also called split lacerations, caused by blunt force and create confusion in the mind of police official about sharp weapon. Under magnifying lens, the edges of such wounds are found to be irregular with bruising. Such wounds are also produced by broken glass pieces, broken crockery, which have the characteristics of incised wounds but the edges appear parallel with one end of the wound.

A neatly incised laceration is an incised wound. An incised wound, cut, slash, and slice is a clean cut through the skin that may or may not involve underlying tissues and structures and is caused by a sharp–edged instrument, such as knife, razor, blade, scalpel, sword, which is longer than the depth of wound.

Significance for doctors and police officials

  • Provides clue about the weapon used and the direction of the force.
  • Duration of injury can be determined.
  • Location of the wound may suggest mode of production i.e. suicide, accident, homicides, fabricated or otherwise

Letter to Editor

  1. I want to share one incident. Two days back one of our gynec member at Rajkot went for HSG of his patient at radiologist clinic. He gave inj atropine reden plus and ceftriaxone–sulbactam IV. Immediately the patient went into cardiac arrest. All possible steps were taken. Anesthetist and physician were called right away, but the patient could not be revived. Then, the relative of the patients started damaging the clinic. Doctors were manhandled. The relatives filed an FIR. The police applied IPC 304, which means homicide and one can’t get bail. There is Supreme Court judgement, which states that section 304 cannot be applied without proper investigation. We had to keep our doctor friend in a secret place to avoid arrest. Today we went to the police commissioner for this matter along with our local IMA. He just said that we would seek legal advice and do needful. He however did not say anything as to why 304 was applied. So we are still fighting this battle. Niraj Jadav

    My views: Have adequate arrangements for tackling anaphylaxis at hand in the Radiology department. Take your own steroids, antihistamines along. Avoid giving antibiotics if possible in the radiology department as in the present case; it appears that reaction was to antibiotics rather than the dye. Prefer oral route if possible. Refuse doing HSG where even an oxygen cylinder is not present. Document the event properly. Regards: Dr. Harkanwaljit Singh Saini, MS, Saini Hospital & IVF Centre, 184–L, Model Town,………
  2. Medical mistakes in Indian movies: This is a scene from an old blockbuster of Manmohan Desai "Amar Akbar Anthony" Nirupa Roy (who happens to be the mother of all 3, but was not aware, neither were the 3 sons AAA) met with an accident. There was a huge blood loss and Dr Neetu Singh asks Amar Akbar and Anthony to donate blood! All 3 were lying on 3 different beds. The scene then showed an IV cannula from all the 3 going in a huge bottle on IV stand to collect blood from all 3 (AGAINST GRAVITY)! From that bottle, a single drip was connected to the mother and the blood transfusion was in progress! Such innovation was only possible in a MMD movie!!! Warm Regards, Dr. RK Sharma.
