People participation key to eco-tourism

JAIPUR: Conservation with people's participation seems to be the salient feature of the eco-tourism guidelines released by the state government on Thursday. From seeking their help in the actual implementation of the guidelines to involving them with conservation work, the guidelines have paved way for community participation in a variety of ways. As a first step, the guidelines seek the involvement of honorary wildlife wardens wildlife experts, NGOs and other independent stakeholders for assisting the Tiger Conservation Foundation and the forest department for the implementation of these guidelines in tiger reserves. The guidelines, in a bid to provide communities living close to protected areas and tiger reserves with an alternative to farming, encourages the development of private land near reserves as wildlife habitats keeping provisions of suitable compensation for them if they do so. It also talks about encouragement for these communities for developing their private land as forests.

In protected areas that have a large number of pilgrims visiting them like the Ranthambore Fort complex and the Pandupole temple in Sariska, the guidelines encourages the management of the movement and transportation of tourists and their facilities to these sites through the eco-development committees of adjoining villages. The participation of ecodevelopment committees has also been sought in the improvement of the condition of tourist facilities near protected areas. The guidelines also make it mandatory for the selection of 50% of Nature guides (guides accompanying tourists inside reserves) from rural areas adjoining the park giving them suitable handicap in competency when compared with the others. Help has also been sought of NGOs, experts and others for the development of a nature interpretation centre in each protected area. These interpretation centres will create environmental awareness, provide information about tiger reserves and conduct nature awareness camps for students, public and other stake holders. Finally, the guidelines talks of developing a government-people partnership or Van Bhagidari over a long term period for the proper implementation of these guidelines.

What are the most common causes for chronic aortic regurgitation in the elderly?

The causes include dilation of the ascending aorta resulting from hypertension or primary aortic disease, calcific aortic sclerosis, and, rarely, a bicuspid aortic valve. Acute aortic regurgitation is most often due to an aortic dissection or endocarditis.

    My Profession My Concern

Quality standards for any clinical establishment

1. Identify patients correctly or face a speedy punishment by the court

Why
a. Wrong-patient errors occur in virtually all aspects of diagnosis and treatment.
b. Patients may be sedated, disoriented, or not fully alert; may change beds, rooms, or locations within the hospital; may have sensory disabilities; or may be subject to other situations that may lead to errors in correct identification.

Goals:
i. To reliably identify the individual as the person for whom the service or treatment is Intended
ii. To match the service or treatment to that individual.

When to identify
1. Identify the patient using two patient identifiers and not by room number
2. Identify patients before administering medications, blood, or blood products.
3. Identify patients before taking blood and other specimens for clinical testing.
4. Identify patients before providing treatments and procedures.

Identifying methods
a. The policies and/or procedures require at least two ways to identify a patient, such as the patient’s name, identification number, birth date, a bar-coded wristband, or other ways.
b. The patient’s room number or location cannot be used for identification.

Legal implications
1. Patient safety
2. Law suit implication

References
a. In IMA vs VP Shantha 1995 (6) SCC 651 (37) it has been held that the following acts are clearly due to negligence. (b) Performance of an operation on the wrong patient.
b. Performance of an operation on the wrong patient: Such cases can be speedily disposed of by the procedure that is being followed by the Consumer Disputes Redressal Agencies and there is no reason why complaints regarding deficiency in service in such cases should not be adjudicated by the Agencies under the Act. [SC/4119 of 1999 and 3126 of 2000, 14.05.2009, Nizam Institute of Medical Sciences vs. Prasanth S. Dhananka and Ors. B.N. Agrawal, Harjit Singh Bedi and G. S. Singhvi, JJ. ]

Episiotomy reduces risk of anal sphincter tears in vacuum-assisted deliveries

The risk of anal sphincter injuries is increased in nulliparous women who require vacuum-assisted delivery, but lateral episiotomy reduces that risk, a study from Finland shows. "There is on-going debate whether episiotomy is at all useful or not in order to prevent tears," Dr. Sari Räisänen from Savonia University of Applied Sciences in Iisalmi told Reuters Health by email. "This paper now shows that the type of episiotomy we use reduces the incidence of tears up to 50% in nulliparous women undergoing vacuum extraction."(Source: Medscape)

FDA approves short-acting neutropenia drug

The FDA has approved a short-acting formulation of granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) for managing chemotherapy-induced neutropenia. Known as tbo-filgrastim (Sicor), the parenteral agent is the first biosimilar form of recombinant filgrastim approved by the agency. The approval stipulates use of tbo-filgrastim in nonmyeloid malignancies treated with myelosuppressive chemotherapy. (Source: Medpage Today)

    Infertility Update (Dr Kaberi Banerjee, IVF expert, New Delhi)

What are the indications for sperm donation?

Therapeutic donor insemination (DI or TDI) is appropriate when the male partner has severe abnormalities in the semen parameters. These abnormalities include both obstructive (caused by a blockage of the ejaculatory ducts) and non-obstructive (due to testicular failure) azoospermia (absence of sperm), which may be congenital or acquired. Severe oligospermia (decreased sperm count) or other significant sperm or seminal fluid abnormalities are also indications for DI. DI is also indicated if the male has ejaculatory dysfunction or if he is a carrier or affected with a significant genetic defect and would prefer not to pass this gene on to his children. DI may be used if the female is Rh-sensitized and the male partner is Rh-positive.

    Tat Tvam Asi………and the Life Continues……

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

Adverse transfusion reactions

  • All suspected acute transfusion reactions should be reported immediately to the blood bank and to the clinician.
  • Rapid recognition and early management of the reaction may save the patient’s life. The time between the suspicion of a transfusion reaction and the investigation and the initiation of appropriate treatment should be as short as possible
  • Once immediate action has been taken, careful and repeated clinical assessment is essential to identify and treat the patient’s main problems.
  • Errors and failure to adhere to correct procedures are the commonest cause of life-threatening acute hemolytic transfusion reactions.
  • Patients who receive regular transfusions are particularly at risk of acute febrile reactions. In such cases, special care of the patient is required to prevent repeated transfusion reactions.
  • Transfusion-transmitted infections are the most serious delayed complications of transfusion. A delayed transfusion reaction may occur days, weeks or months after the transfusion.
  • The transfusion of large volumes of blood and intravenous fluids may cause hemostatic defects or metabolic disturbances.

    Fitness Update (Rajat Bhatnagar, MonaVie, www.mymonavie.com/sonraj)

Yoga and cognitive abilities in schoolchildren

Physical activity has previously been associated with better test scores and improved focus and attention among school children. Now a study, published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, looked at how yoga compares to physical activity at influencing cognitive abilities in children. In the study, researchers followed 200 Indian children aged 7-9, measuring markers of cognition including attention, concentration, spatial and verbal abilities, and abstract thinking. Researchers concluded that there was no significant difference in cognitive performance between the two groups. This would suggest that yoga, like other forms of physical activity, can have beneficial effects on cognitive abilities and performance of school age children.

    An Inspirational Story (Ms Ritu Sinha)

Earthquake – A mother’s sacrifice

After the Earthquake had subsided, when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward and her two hands were supporting an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head.

With many difficulties, the leader of the rescuer team put his hand through a narrow gap on the wall to reach the woman’s body. He was hoping that this woman could still be alive. However, the cold and stiff body told him that she had passed away. He and the rest of the team left this house and went to search the next collapsed building.

For some reasons, the team leader was driven by a compelling force to go back to the ruin house of the dead woman. Again, he knelt down and used his hand through the narrow cracks to search the little space under the dead body.

Suddenly, he screamed, “A child! There is a child!”

The whole team worked together; carefully they removed the piles of ruined objects around the dead woman. There was a 3 month’s old little boy wrapped in a flowery blanket under his mother’s dead body. Obviously, the woman had made an ultimate sacrifice to save her son. When her house was falling, she used her body to make a cover to protect her son.

The medical doctor came quickly to exam the little boy. After he opened the blanket, he saw a cell phone inside. There was a text message on the screen, it said: “Dear baby, if you can live, always remember that I love you.”

Situation: A patient was diagnosed with HIV–AIDS.
Dr Bad: You won’t live long enough.
Dr Good: You can live a fairly normal life span.
Lesson: In the 1980s, a young adult diagnosed with AIDS typically survived less than one year. Today, a similar person can expect to live to age 70 or beyond if he or she is diagnosed with HIV infection early, has access to and receives appropriate therapy, and can tolerate the drugs and their side effects.

  Quote of the Day (Dr GM Singh)

Children find everything in nothing; men find nothing in everything. Giacomo Leopardi

 
    Legal Question of the Day (Dr MC Gupta)

Q. Why do illegal path labs continue to flourish?

Ans.

  • When an illegality flourishes, the causes can be—
    • The law is not enforceable.
    • The society is comfortable with the violation of law
    • The law is not being enforced by the government.
  • A law may not be enforceable if it is a bad law. For example, section 377, IPC, which provides for sentence up to life imprisonment to “whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature…..”.
  • The society may be comfortable with the violation of law as regards: anti-smoking law, anti-dowry law, PNDT act, etc.
  • There are many instances when law is not enforced by the government or is even broken by the government itself. Examples are too many.
  • In the case of illegal path labs, all the three factors listed above apply as follows:
    • The law that only pathologists can run path labs is not enforceable. There is a shortage of persons having a degree or diploma in pathology. The number of labs required in the country is much more than the number of pathologists available. There is a need to define a special category of medical persons qualified or trained in laboratory medicine as distinct from qualified pathologists who should be legally empowered to run path labs. I think the following should be done:
      • Those MBBS graduates having 6 months training or 1 year experience in pathology or laboratory medicine in an approved institution may be deemed as pathologists competent to run path labs. This would be on the same lines as the competence for doing ultrasonography under the PNDT Act.
      • The MCI should amend the IMC Act, 1956, and its rules, if necessary to:
        —Either recognise laboratory medicine as a sub-specialty of pathology, or

        —Recognise those MBBS graduates having a qualification or experience in laboratory medicine as competent to run path labs
    • The society is comfortable with the violation of law as regards path labs. No law is a good law if the society is happy with its violation and if it is not against morality or the basic structure of the Constitution. Hence, the stand of MCI that running of a path lab means practice of pathology needs to be changed. Most path labs nowadays use computerised auto-analyzers, which only need proper calibration etc. for which the knowledge of pathology is not needed.
    • The law against path labs is not being enforced by the government itself. PHCs, CHCs, district hospitals etc. carry out tests and issue path lab reports even when there is no pathologist on the staff.
  • Shortage of pathologists is not peculiar to India. According to an RCPA (Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia), there is a shortage of pathologists worldwide, including Australasia which comprises Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia. The shortage is in general pathology as well as in its various sub disciplines which include Anatomical Pathology, Chemical Pathology, Haematology, Cytopathology, Immunopathology, Microbiology, Genetic Pathology and Forensic Pathology.

    This report states that more than 70% of all diagnoses involve pathology tests and there is a real risk that overworked, tired pathologists are more likely to make misdiagnoses.

    The population: pathologist ratio in different countries in Australasia is reported as follows:

    Australia -- 15,500
    New Zealand-- 20,250
    Hong Kong, --26,500
    Singapore, 48,900
    Malaysia, 103,300

    There is an active campaign in Malaysia at present to reach a target of one pathologist per 75,000.
    http://www.asianhhm.com/Knowledge_bank/articles/
    pathology_workforce_crisis.htm
  • The situation in India is no better. In 2007, the Times of India reported that a study was conducted in Maharashtra in 33 of the 35 districts in the state (excluding Beed and Mumbai suburban) and it was found that out of the 339 talukas, as many as 210 or 62% were without a qualified pathologist. http://findarticles.com/p/news

    8012/is_20071111/210-talukas
    -pathologist-pune/ai_n39468224/

    According to the President, Association of Practising Pathologists, Haryana, there were only 22 Pathologists and at least 500 Labs in Faridabad, Haryana, as in January 2011.

Uric acid

Increase in serum uric acid is seen idiopathically and in renal failure, disseminated neoplasms, toxemia of pregnancy, psoriasis, liver disease, sarcoidosis, ethanol consumption, etc. Many drugs increase uric acid, including most diuretics, catecholamines, ethambutol, pyrazinamide, salicylates and large doses of nicotinic acid.

Decreased serum uric acid level may not be of clinical significance. It has been reported in Wilson’s disease, Fanconi’s syndrome, xanthinuria and (paradoxically) in some neoplasms, including Hodgkin’s disease, myeloma and bronchogenic carcinoma.

There were these two friends, Bill and Bob, and they both loved baseball. So, they made a promise to each other, the first one to die, will come back and let the other know if there's baseball in heaven. Well, the day comes and Bob passes. Weeks turn to months while Bill is still waiting to hear from his friend.

Then one day, Bill is walking down the street, and Bob appears. Bill all excited, says: "I’ve been waiting forever! So tell me, is there or isn’t there Baseball in heaven?" Bob kinda perks up and says: "I’ve got good news and bad news." "1st, there is Baseball in heaven! The bad news is you’re pitching Friday!"
