Operation Theater Techniques : Obstetrics & Gynecology

By: Dr. Shashank Vyankatesh Parulekar

The book is meant for resident doctors who are starting their training. Obstetrics & Gynecology is a subject that involves a lot of operative procedures. Just knowledge of which instruments to use and which steps to perform is not enough to perform an operation successfully. A lot depends on manual dexterity. A basic knowledge of the technique of holding different instruments correctly and passing sutures, ligatures, and tying knots is essential for performance of all types of operations. This aspect has not been dealt with by any book so far. I have written this book to bridge that gap in the educational resources available to students....

Tuberculosis in the Era of Globalization

By: Khalid Al-Anzai

Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) complex, which include: M. tuberculosis, M. bovis, M. bovis BCG, M. africanum, M. microti, M. canetti, M. pinipedii, M. caprae and M. mungi [1]. Other Tuberculosise that may infect humans include: M. leprae, M. avium, M. intracellulare and M. scrofulaceum. M. tuberculosis is an aerobic, non-spore-forming, non-motile bacillus. It belongs to the family Tuberculosisceae [2]. M. tuberculosis is pathogenic for humans while M. bovis is usually pathogenic for animals. Once infected, active disease develops in about 10% of cases, usually within 1 - 2 years after exposure. The remaining individuals enter into a state of latency which can reactivate at a later stage particularly if the individual becomes immunocompromised [3]. Active TB is predominantly pulmonary in nature and develops in 59% of cases, while extrapulmonary TB occurs in the rest. Latent TB infection has no clinical manifestations and is not contagious, but can reactivate at a later stage, particularly if the immunity of the host decreases significantly [3,4]. Immunocompromised patients ...

Internal Armed Conflict ; International Legal Framework Concerning Women and Children

By: Shabina Arfat

This book, ‘INTERNAL ARMED CONFLICT: International Legal Framework Concerning Women and Children’, seeks to assess the application of customs and laws governing the internal armed conflict. This handbook presents an overview of various international instruments for the protection of women and children. By preventing the transcending of conflicts into brutality and savagery, the law of armed conflict aids the restoration of peace and the resumption of friendly relations. Women and children are opined to be accorded special respect and protection. Most of today’s conflicts take place within states. They have tragic feature in common, women and children suffer their impact disproportionately. The concept of children’s rights has widened and the international mandate to reinforce the rights of the child has grown over the years, with the mounting evidence of hardship and abuse suffered by the children. The principles outlined in the international human rights framework apply both to children and adults. Children and women are mentioned explicitly in many of the human rights instruments; standards are specifically modified o...

The Machinery of Homeopathy : Can Homoeopathy Tackle Ebola?

By: Ved from Victoria Institutions

Can Homoeopathy cure Ebola? Can it cure any human or animal disease? If so, what is the machinery that Homeopathy uses?

First comment posted on Forbes.com The contention that there is absolutely no cure for Ebola might be too far-fetched considering that Homeopathy is not being discussed. Some wise guys who run Wikipedia has written very prominently that Homeopathy is quackery. However, there are persons who do get huge amounts of health benefit from such ‘quackery’. Even now it would be quite wise, and a deed of great responsibility to try out Homeopathy based preventive medicines. In fact, the expense of distributing this might not be expensive at all. Only thick-heads running the show would refrain from discussing homeopathy at this juncture....

Advances in Protein Chemistry

By: Dr. Chulam Ashraf

The free radical-mediated damage to proteins results in the modification of amino acid residues, cross-linking of side chains and fragmentation. L-tyrosine and protein bound tyrosine are prone to attack by various mediators and reactive nitrogen intermediates to form 3-nitrotyrosine (3-NT). 3-NT formation is also catalyzed by a class of peroxidases utilizing nitrite and hydrogen peroxide as substrates. Evidence supports the formation of 3-NT in vivo in diverse pathologic conditions and 3-NT is thought to be a relatively specific marker of oxidative damage. The formation of nitrotyrosine represents a specific peroxynitrite-mediated protein modification; thus, detection of nitrotyrosine in proteins is considered as a biomarker for endogenous peroxynitrite activity. Formation of tyrosine nitrated proteins is considered to be a post-translational modification with important pathophysiological consequences and is one of the markers of nitrosative stress that have been reported in neurodegeneration, inflammatory and other pathological conditions....

Sexo, Juegos y Punk Rock : Las experiencias de una empresa privada de salud en América Latina

By: R. Alvarado Anchisi, Co-Author; Shiara Esquivel B., Co-Author; D. Mariela Beitia, Co-Author

En la redacción de un blog, que inició muy genérico, sin presupuesto y que tampoco generaba ingresos, empezamos a notar una similitud entre algunos tópicos de medicina y biología, y otros de negocios. Sin ánimos de usarlo como una estrategia de mercadeo, encontramos que la investigación es como el sexo, porque hay que hacerlo para entenderlo, el desarrollo es como un juego, porque uno debe cambiar las variables hasta encontrar la combinación correcta, y la innovación es como el punk rock, porque no debe temer al fracaso, debe ser tangencial y no debe tener miedo de retar a lo ortodoxo....

De acuerdo con la Contraloría General de la República de Panamá, en el 2011 el pais contaba con un total de 5,551 médicos, 4,744 enfermeras, 1,171 laboratoristas clínicos, 1,114 odontólogos, 757 farmacéuticos, 257 fisioterapistas y 153 nutricionistas en ejercicio en instituciones públicas de salud.(1) No hay cifras sobre la cantidad de profesionales sanitarios en ejercicio privado exclusivo, pero hay 663 clínicas y hospitales, 250 farmacias y 124 laboratorios clínicos privados, aproximadamente, en todo el país. En Panamá, la mayoría de los profesionales de la salud se ve forzado a trabajar en las prácticas institucional y privada para solventar los gastos propios de una agonizante clase media y de un proceso académico en inflación. Este último fenómero lo comparten la mayor parte de los países del mundo occidental. Nuestro interés de investigar sobre el aspecto empresarial de la atención sanitaria provino de la experiencia al concebir, emprender y operar un pequeño laboratorio de patología en la provincia de Chiriquí, una región predominantemente rural de la República de Panamá, adyacente a Costa Rica. Iniciamos en julio del...

Coping with Diabetes : A Day to Day Struggle

By: Frederick Fontanilla Jacob

Unknown to most people, Diabetes is not just a single disease but rather a group of complex diseases which have stemmed from various causes resulting in people having an above average blood glucose count or more commonly know as hyperglycemia. Diabetes affects all gender and age groups and is very common among people with a prolonged medical history of high blood pressure, heart ailments and kidney problems among others. Besides adults, children are also affected with this disease which clearly states that Diabetes itself may not only be a matter of eating the wrong diet, but may even be caused by hereditary genes that may be a sign of receive genetically traits passed on from one generation to the next and being triggered by the simple reason as indulging in a bad dietary habit or even an onset of some diseases....

Sometimes, over complacency may get the best of most of us, particularly those who resolve themselves for not feeling anything that may give them the urge to visit a doctor unless they feel that there is something wrong with them, which in most cases may be a little bit too late for preventive medications. Over time, high blood glucose level damages nerves and blood vessels, leading to complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, dental disease, and amputations. Other complications of diabetes may include increased susceptibility to other diseases, loss of mobility with aging, depression, and pregnancy problems. No one is certain what starts the processes that cause diabetes, but scientists believe genes and environmental factors interact to cause diabetes in most cases. There are two types of Diabetes that are prevalent among people today, which is type 1 and type 2 Diabetes along with a third type which is called gestational diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. Other uncategorized Diabetes are usually caused through genetic inheritance, diseases that cause the pancreas to produce an insufficient supply...

Martial Arts for Health : Translating Reserach into Practice

By: Shirley S.M. Fong

Martial arts were developed for use on the battlefield in ancient times, and even in the modern world many people learn such skills for self-defense [1]. Despite their combative nature, training in marital arts is safe compared with many other contact sports. The use of protective equipment such as mouth guards and headgear is mandatory during sparring, and practitioners must follow strict competition rules in many types of martial arts [2]. In addition, some types of martial arts such as Tai Chi and Qigong are noncombative in nature, with practitioners focusing on coordinated movements and relaxation during practice – all of which are beneficial to practitioners’ health [1,3]. These days, the popularity of martial arts is increasing, particularly among young people [4]. There are about 200 distinct martial arts types or disciplines around the world, each with its own training characteristics and philosophy [5]. Only the most common types of Oriental and Western martial arts and their associated health effects are introduced in this book. These martial disciplines include the internal (e.g. Tai Chi and Qigong) and external ...

Laboratory Manual and Review on Clinical Pathology

By: Dr. Jealu Kemal

Clinical pathology is a subspecialty of pathology that deals with the use of laboratory methods (clinical chemistry, microbiology, hematology and emerging subspecialties such as molecular diagnostics) for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Hematology studies the blood and blood-forming tissues to evaluate presence of disease and assist in therapeutic interventions as clinically indicated. Clinical chemistry (also known as chemical pathology and clinical biochemistry) is the area of clinical pathology that is generally concerned with analysis of bodily fluids. Some of the objectives of this manual are to identify the most important hematological and functional pathological tests of vet importance, to diagnose different animal diseases by confirming the pathological causes that constraint live stock production and to have knowledge more about clinical pathology. Part one discusses about hematology which includes equipments and reagents, blood collection sites and procedures, preparation method for working solution, staining methods (staining procedures), hemoglobin determination, hematocrit determination (PCV), total RBC ...

Advances in Neurotherapeutic Delivery Technologies

By: Vinees Pillay and Yahya E Choonara

This eBook describes the forward-thinking approach, applying nanotechnology to achieve neuropharmaceutical innovations and aptly discusses the latest research and development trends in innovating Neurotherapeutic Delivery Technologies by leading research groups. The eBook lays down the foundation for breaking barriers in neuro-nanopharmaceutics and the unnerving thought of “Matter over Mind”. The era has arrived where we could well see pharmaceutical products that are truly ‘alive’, superseded with super-robotic feedback devices combined with nanocyborgs that can deliver to the body not only drugs but also a host of materials such as cells, genes, DNA, nerve signals, diagnostic probes, hormones, proteins and peptides in a much more easier manner as we have today with simply swallowing a pill. These revolutionary technologies are described within the later Chapters of this eBook based on a world where neuro-devices implanted into our brains would be fashionable to control our overall moods and performance....

Notes on Nursing: What it is, and What it is Not

By: Ms. Pere Millán, Editor; Florence Nightingale

In her introduction to the 1974 edition, Joan Quixley, then head of the Nightingale School of Nursing, wrote that despite the passage of time since Notes on Nursing was published, "the book astonishes one with its relevance to modern attitudes and skills in nursing, whether this be practised at home by the 'ordinary woman', in hospital or in the community. The social, economic and professional differences of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in no way hinder the young student or pupil from developing, if he or she is motivated to do so, its unchanged fundamentals by way of intelligent thought and practice". "With its mid-nineteenth century background of poverty, neglect, ignorance and prejudice the book was a challenge to contemporary views of nursing, of nurses and of the patient". "The book was the first of its kind ever to be written. It appeared at a time when the simple rules of health were only beginning to be known, when its topics were of vital importance not only for the well-being and recovery of patients, when hospitals were riddled with infection, when nurses were still mainly regarded as ignorant, uneducated person...

The book included advice and practices for the following areas: ventilation and warming health in houses petty management (how things are done by others when you must be away) noise variety (environment) taking food and what kinds of food bed and bedding light cleanliness of rooms personal cleanliness chattering hopes and advices (the false assurances and recommendations of family and friends to the sick) observation of the sick ...
