lollipop effect

Paediatrics is one subject where u simply cant extract a reasonable history and examine the patient without bribing them[children!-even they need it!]...this[bribing] not only makes the child cooperative but also the informant[usually the mother] who until then would have thought that we are concerned only about their history and not about their children...yesterday we[3 of us] saw a case where the child due to vitamin D deficiency had developed muscle weakness and was not unable to walk inspite of being 1.5 yrs old...and when we tried to examine it, it just refused in the form of crying....finally after giving a lollipop it calmed down and allowed us to examine it[that too with great difficulty]...thats called Lollipop effect..:)...
i still remember when i was younger the pediatrician near by always used to give me a toffee on my every visit and that one toffee really used to lift me up!!!...so when ever i see any child in the wards i make sure they don't go empty handed....

quotes-

It strikes! one, two,
Three, four, five, six. Enough, enough, dear watch,
Thy pulse hath beat enough. Now sleep and rest;
Would thou could'st make the time to do so too;
I'll wind thee up no more.
- Ben Jonson

Does Michael Phelps have MSy??......

Michael Phelps holds the record for the most gold medals won at a single Olympics, a total of eight, and is arguably the best Olympic athlete ever.With all NBC ads about "giant feet" and the highly publicized facts about his physical features, some of my colleagues pointed out that Mr. Phelps has quite a few features of Marfan syndrome[Msy].His height is 6'4" and his arm span of 6'7" is greater than his height.
According to Cleveland Leader, "that is a ratio of 1.04, which is just shy of the clinical cutoff of 1.05. He is also said to have hypermobile joints in his knees, shoulders and ankles." Mr. Phepls also has large hands and feet. Marfan syndrome is an inherited connective-tissue disorder which presents with tall stature, ectopia lentis, mitral valve prolapse, aortic root dilatation, and aortic dissection.
In his book, "Michael Phelps: Beneath the Surface" written by both Phelps and Brian Cazeneuve, he writes about the scare of the possible diagnosis of Marfan syndrome:
"My heart rate was accelerating and Bob suggested I see the doctor. Because I was very flexible and had long hands and feet. I had some early symptoms of Marfan Syndrome, a disease that affects connective tissues and can be fatal if there is leakage to the vessels that lead to the heart. If you reach out your arms and form a T and your wingspan is longer than your height, you can be at risk. In my case, those measurements have always been very close. I didn't know at the time why the doctor decided to look into this. My mom and Bob didn't want me to freak out, so they told me it was simply a good idea for young athletes to have an EKG test in order to look at the heart.Fortunately everything was, and still is, okay. I have been tested once a year ever since at John's Hopkins under the direction of Dr. Peter Roe and the tissues are strong, the aortic rout is clear and my heart is in good shape - as long as my Baltimore Ravens are winning."
We all want our heroes to be perfect but they never are. Their biggest strength however lies in overcoming their own shortcomings and giving inspiration for millions around the world to do the same.

obg,virus

hmm..finally our obg[obstetrics and gynaecology] postings[of 6 weeks] will be over today..it was quite a good posting where we learned many things and saw some really good cases...
we had internals on wednesday and my case was a lady[obvious] with a Rh -VE pregnancy[which means her blood grp is O-ve and her husbands is B+ve]...the problem in such pregnancies is that the fetus being Rh+ve[which acquires husbands blood grp-Mendelian principle] triggers a immune reaction in the mother which eventually results in its[fetus] rbc[red blood cell] destruction[similar to what happens in a mismatched blood transfusion] resulting in serious complications like jaundice in the baby...my patient had similar complication which unfortunately resulted in delivery of a dead baby:(...hope next time she conceives a healthy child..:))...
my pc is not working from a few a days due to some worm attck....feel like am in a jail....now at my aunts place and trying to blog here as much as i can:)...

A special day dedicated just for friends is something that everyone looks forward to. The beautiful idea of honoring one of the most pious relations of all, i.e. Friendship, is appreciated by people all over the world. It has assumed the proportion of being celebrated as a festival. Friends all over the world pay tribute to their chums by giving them gifts and other tributes. The best way to celebrate this beautiful day is by spending the entire day with your special pals.

Adolescent day

August 1st is usually considered as Adolescent day..main aim being to educate the people abt its effect on the individual both biologically and psychologically...in keeping this mind IAP[Indian Paediatric Association] has started a program for the welfare of the people in this age group....

Indian being the home of highest no of HIV+ve cases really needs to educate the people regarding sex and its misconceptions....
