ESC consensus statement on secondary prevention post-MI
 "In-hospital prevention should be given as high a priority as initial acute care"
 
The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) has released a consensus document on secondary prevention strategies following an acute myocardial infarction (AMI), which outlines the components of secondary prevention in post-AMI patients for both patients and healthcare providers including healthcare systems to prevent secondary events.

The consensus statement is published online September 6, 2016 in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
The documents also notes that while acute events are due to ruptured coronary plaques and associated thrombosis, most secondary events are due to the progression of the atherosclerotic process. Hence, secondary prevention becomes important to prevent recurrence, improve functional capacity and quality of life.

The ESC emphasizes on a healthy lifestyle as the most effective way to prevent a recurrent heart attack, along with preventive medications and follow up. Risk factors should be identified and managed. Healthy diet, physical activity, weight control, cessation of smoking and stopping alcohol abuse are components of risk factor modification or lifestyle intervention.

Stop mosquito breeding - prevent dengue​
 
New Delhi, 08 September 2016: Dengue cases are on the rise, and it is important that each one of us works towards preventing the onset on the disease. However, to do so, we must know all about the disease carrying vector and the disease itself.

Dengue fever is a disease caused by a family of viruses that are transmitted by mosquitoes. The symptoms include severe joint and muscle pain, swollen lymph nodes, headache, fever, exhaustion, and rashes. Because dengue fever is caused by a virus, there is no specific medicine or antibiotic to treat it. For typical dengue fever, the treatment is directed toward relief of the symptoms. The acute phase of the illness with fever and myalgias lasts about one to two weeks.
