medicine


our med internals got over today.this time we are posted in Victoria hospital and the unit we are in is quite good,every day classes are taken and to complicate things even the juniors[2nd year-the year when the clinical postings start] have been posted.Its quite fun teaching the juniors for the simple reason being u know more than them :P...
case given to me was quite complicated where the patient had breathlessness,cough and one episode of nose bleeding , and to complicate the diagnosis he had massive liver enlargement[about 20cm!!], finally some how came to co-relate all the findings the reason being Dengue!![our Pg really saved me]

Dengue has been infesting my place for sometime now...once indicator is rapid drop of hemoglobin...or was it the white blood cells?! Not sure now...and once the patient starts to nose bleed, it could be in the acute stages already. Really terrifying to see children die within 24-48 hours time span. It is caused by some mosquitoes and these are mosquitoes staying in seemingly clean stagnant waters like water in your vases, etc.

So it is everywhere now... :(
