Dear Sir,

Cancer is ruining our lives.

Radiations escaping from X-Rays, CT Scan and other radiations can increase this cancer(refer http://www.xrayrisk.com/) a lot of examples like (Risk of cancer from diagnostic x-rays: estimates for the UK and 14 other countries. Lancet 2004; 363:345-51).

For this Government of India controls all such units under AERB (Atomic Energy Regulatory Board) under BARC (Bhabha Atomic Research Centre).

All medical centres including dental X-Rays should comply with standards prescribed by AERB and obtain necessary approvals from AERB.

But painfully speaking practically none of the centres are fully compliant with such directive and approved by the concerned authority.

AERB had published a statutory notification in this regard in “The Tribune 29th July, 2011”)
We request you to carry forward this message and do your own survey to check the compliance and prevent the Cancer Train

Thanking you
Working for Safe World

in our country not implement the rule , is itself an rule. any body can set up an x -ray unit, ct center . most often patients think it is therapeutic, and for referring doctor it’s the source of income , & for owner of the establishment bit of every thing. in general no one scared of any thing……because tit= this is india, every one doing the same so , me too. therefore you too can join. this is the mind set. my question is who is regulatory body?, what are they doing ? have they taken any action against the violators ? so on …so forth…

Dear Editor,

It takes a while for the truth to come out. This refers to the open letter written by Dr Rajanna Sreedhara, nephrologist of Fortis Hospital at Bannerghatta Road Bangalore to Aamir Khan after ‘Satyameva Jayate’ which was published on your website.

Dr Sreedhara had committed perjury to obtain a clean chit from Karnataka Medical Council and had misled the Council. After my complaint, Karnataka Medical Council has issued a fresh show cause notice to him in ENQ51/2013. If permitted I can provide details.

Regards,

Pankaj

sir,
i am a regular visitor on your website.
i was going through the list of the medical fields that your articles pertain to. however it was disheartening to find that there was no section on Physiology. there is so much research going on in this field and as such physiology is also the basis of medicine..
it is thus my earnest request that you start incorporating interesting and valuable articles in this field as well.
thanking you
yours sincerely

HI

I would like to highlight that we have launched a special clinic for children with “osteogenesis imperfecta and metabolic bone disease ” at the Dr L H Hiranandani Hospita.

There are several children in India who don’t receive timely treatment of their fractures in OI. Many are just treated like ordinary fractures and left to heal in a malformed position which predisposes to more fracture. Many orthopaedic surgeons don’t want to stabilize the fracture as they feel that it is difficult.

To increase awareness about this condition we have a special clinic at Dr LH Hiranandani Hospital, Powai , Mumbai.

Please highlight this in your newsletter so that more children can benefit with treatment.

i am a senior radiology resident . our no is very less but still i feel that if i work as a farmer i can serve the society better than a radiologist but in this life i cant because my skill is more developed as a doctor. specially our department is more guided by businessman not by a real doctor. it is most unfortunate thing for our society.

I worked as resident in radiology in apollo hospital. I really impressed by the concept of health check but it is only for high afflent people not for middle & low socioeconomic groups where it is really needed because in our country our ~ 95% population comes under this group.
our nation is democratic but where is this democracy.if some one is really reading my thoughts please reply . i have proud on our advancement in media only a judicious utilisation is required. i talk with a journalist of hindustan about my mission to make a healthy society . Now he is not peaking my phone.
this is THE TRUTH but still i have faith on my SWAMI JI thatswhy i am writting.

Respected Dr. Gupta,
Thanks for Beautiful update!!! could it be suggested what should be course of action of a 62yrs old retired husband when his wife dies within 36 hrs in a private hospital ITU,while entered walking to EMO office.
chief C/o mild RDS; with past H/O , pneumonia, PAH ( average BP 130~150/70~80 with med), HOCM with dynamic LVOT gradient (96mm at rest), during RDS SpO2 98% with O2, in RA 88%. Although EMO advised for CXR PA view, the actual was done a AP view on 27/11/14 at 01:43 AM( rpt yes AP view), and depending on this only investigation without any other differential diagnosis ( like pneumonia relapse, ARDS induced pulmonary issue and others) the Pt. was diagnosed for hypervolimia and pulmonary oedema (even in JVP written as +/-, not indicating any clear picture of distension), all others O/E NML,no pedal oedema, I/O ? ( at 10AM for 27/11/14). No further investigation, like ECHO/HRCT to rule out other causes of patchy consolidation in CXR,or repeating CXR with PA view, to rule out over amplification cause in AP view, was done. only bloodwork done was CBC ( indicating platelet 1.05 lakh) , cardiac enzymes ( minor elevation), LFT ( WNL). The pt. was put straight way on fluid restriction, ( on admission BP was 120/60) continuing CCB and PDE5i( which was prescribed for PAH earlier), In 120/60 setting used diuretics ( combination of Torsemide 20 mg and Sprinolactone 50mg at about 10:30AM), at 11 AM indicated hemodynamically stable , no peripheral oedema, output satisfactory ( incidentally no catheter was inserted), At 3 PM pt. complained of mild SOB, then was put on 0.9% NaCl with 12 hrs span. At 4 PM SOB ++, , BP 90/50, fluid challenge for a very short duration without any repetition, then Dopamine infusion. At 4:20 PM BP 160/90, immediately Lasix 40 mg IV ( nurse instituted 80 mg) along with GTN IV without any documentation of Angina ( and GTN is contraindicated with PDE5i until washout period of 24 hrs of PDE5i as it may lead to fatal hypotension ). Echo was done at 9:40 PM , by the time pulmonary acceleration time time deteriorated to 52mmHg, but LVEF preserved 65%, and pt was coughing severely , possibly due lung injury. But , the Consultant indicated in note at 8;45 PM that prognosis informed to pt. party and at that time advise for NT-ProBNP. No further noting during the whole night. At 7AM of 28/11/14,hemorrhagic forthy secretion, Pause 2 Amp Stat, at 9 AM on mechanical ventilator ( at that time was advised for PT, APTT, platelet!!!!), BP 80/40, Pt. unconscious,hemorrhage in ET tube, and then passed away at 2:20 PM of 28/11/14. In the above case there was no restriction for expenditure was imposed, which is, on the contrary of common complaint of excess expenditure…

Should I keep MUM!!!!!!!!
with Regards to all well wishing medical community…

Respected Sir/Madam,

Good afternoon all. May I request you all how can we improve health care systems in government hospitals ? I worked and saw in government hospitals, there are lacking in management part. Directors, Deputy directors, faculties and consultants all are very busy with their schedules. They implement and discusses many pending issues in meetings. But the peoples who are working under them (grade III or grade IV employees) very relax in their work.

How can we improve this ? Our government organizations never overtake private firms.

Please suggest us.

Sincrelely,
Dr. Arun Jha

FINDINGS-Diffuse oedema is noted in the soft tissue along the course of trunk & cords of right brahical plexus from the supraclavicular to right axillary region . There is oedema in right anterior & middle scalne muscles, pectoralis muscles, trapezius supraspinatus, infraspinatus &
subscapularis muscles with evidence of fracture in right scapula . Continuity of the trunks & cords of right brahical plexus is not appreciated & may be obscured by the adjoining soft tissue changes . There is also evidence of pseudo-meningocele in the right lateral recess & neural foramina at C5-C6 & C6-C7 levels of the cervical spine . Cervical cord shows normal signals . Left brahical plexus is normal.Right sided pleural thickening is noted . IMPRESSION – The above findings are suggestive of effects of trauma in right brahical plexus with pseudo-meningocele at C5-C6 & C6-C7 levels consistent with avulsion of right C6 & C7 nerve roots . There is also evidence of diffuse oedema along the course of trunks & cords of right brahical plexus suggesting possibillty of contusion or laceration of the nerves in these region . Evidence of fracture is noted in
right scapula with diffuse oedema in adjoining soft tissue . Suggested clinical correlation and further investigations if clinically indicated . Then I also taken treament under Prof. V. S. Mehta,(DELHI AIMS) he was operation at Paras Hospital on 23rd July, 2006 and suggest me physiotheraphy continously but till now no improvement.

Dear Editor,
Thanks for raising issues on the behalf of patients along with honest health professionals.
It is only because of your ethics; many lay persons like me can share unethical practices adopted by certain big fish !
A news story on mob frenzy in a known hospital -Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon ,Haryana, India made me share my story with you.
Artemis Hospital , a known hospital is also known for its gross medical malpractices.

It happens to be among few hospitals where senior doctors- nephrologists enjoy their meals , free time;while patients are undergoing dialysis treatment.
One can never expect head of nephrology department – a lady doctor – to attend a patient as she is ever busy with her OPD duties.

Contrary to claims made in patients charter, it is not uncommon to find her highhanded behavior.
You can only interact with her coordinator ( nursing assistant ) who acts more as a sales representative for her.

It is really sad, when such a known hospital hardly cross checks details about its staff.
For example, this nephrologist has made tall claims about her medical practice in her webpage.
But, if one earnestly probes that she is simply manipulated facts.

Patients can’t claim as they are either in middle of treatment or have limited resources to take on these indifferent and insensitive doctors.
Without a proper mechanism, these callous doctors- a blot on medical profession- often go Scot free !

However, there is a silver lining in form of Indian Medical Times that raises issues for lay persons like me.
With gratitude,
A patient !
