abba!..at last the weekend has arrived and am quite happy about it..can just eat,sleep and relax a bit now....today had pretty hectic schedule in medicine wards..saw some very good hemiplagia [paralysis of same side arm and leg] and post tuberculosis lung collapse cases [yeah tb is still a major health hazard in this part of the world that too more now due to hiv]....overall it was quite a good learning experience both from exam point of view and patient interactions...two things that i have learned from past few years  from experience[ its a good teacher] is that 1) never treat your patients as a person with intelligence but as a person with emotions..2) always ask for their symptoms [their complaints] in such a way that they get a chance to choose from a set of options given by you without asking any leading question! [like its better to ask him the types of sputum by describing him all the types and tell him to describe rather than asking him the question directly]...today my plans are to watch untraceable movie and sleep!!!!!!
Revised national tb control programme [RNTCP]-national programme aimed at eliminating tb in india through DOTS(directly observed treatment under supervision) [successful to quite an extent]....such a centre in Bangalore is located only in our college!!
