When young u have friends/cousins with whom u would have spent considerable part of your childhood...with whom u fight/share secrets/laugh and make them a part of your fantasy world.....but as you grow change occurs....maturity and most importantly  money make them judge you...they start liking you for not what you are butfor what u have...success decides your relationship this journey only few relationships along the way are left corrupted and u should be sensible enough to identify them and make an effort to sustain them....coz when you are down u want only real friends to grab your hand and pull u out.

Heart attack...

Myocardial Infarction[MI] or in plain english heart attack kills just a 6 hours shift yesterday i came across 4 such situations..all of them referred from private physicians...unfortunately these poor people keep roaming from one practitioner to another with no treatment and finally end up here losing that precious 3 hour window period where any medical intervention perhaps will save his life.....


am more worried about these atypical presentations[unusual symptoms] of this one guy yesterday who came with an upper abdominal pain and when i did a fresh Ecg[high suspicion coz of age and associated diabetes] turned out to be angina.....this patient could have been easily neglected as a case of gastritis and put on wrong drugs...

1-loads and loads of OPD cases who cleverly bypass it and land up in casualty for medications...[who rarely succeed]
2-road traffic accidents...being a tertiary centre you shoud be ready for this...being a MLC[medico legal case] u shd be extra cautious regarding documenting and handling the crowd...already 2 cases in my pocket today.....
3-emotional ladies......those who are always ready to pop up a tablet for no reason and land up in casualty with their extra caring husband[read frustrated] talking about poisoning...from 10 to 40 yr olds female gender this is so common...this also being a MLC you in a soup if u mess up[like the husband when the wife survives].
4-staff patient....real PIA types[Pain In the Ass]....always extra demanding and try to boss u[even a chapraasi is a staff right?]....but we really don't give a damn for them.
5-real sick cases....this is the reason your posted a quick triage and refer to the parent department...this s where your medical knowledge will play a role....
6-help my colleagues-any respiratory case comes am expected to

this sums up my 1st day in casualty today...


best part is that you are your own BOSS..u can dictate terms..and also sometimes get to work with nice people :D

Fountain pens...

Happen to clean my study desk today after a long long time.....being a pen enthusiast i found out tht i own 6 parkers,1 pelikan,2 hero pens and 1 sheaffer (but lamy and reynolds are missing).....i usually prefer fountain pens and even today i don't mind the task of frequent cleaning and refilling of my pens(reason why many don't prefer ink pens these days).

But inspite of this my hand writing has become bad to worse :-D...(many of my prescriptions come back from
Pharmacy )

Birthday boy..

Happy birthday bapuji...:-)
