Alcohol: Benefits Vs Risk

There is consensus that non drinkers should not start and the ones who drink can continue provided they do so in moderation and in absence of contraindications. People tend to consume more alcohol in winter and near the New Year.

  • Persons who have been lifelong abstainers cannot be easily compared with moderate or even rare drinkers. Recommending alcohol intake to them even if they would agree to drink is not justified.
  • The diseases that moderate alcohol use prevents (such as coronary heart disease, ischemic stroke, and diabetes) are most prevalent in the elderly, men, and people with coronary heart disease risk factors. For these groups, moderate alcohol use is associated with a substantial mortality benefit relative to abstention or rare drinking.
  • For young to middle–aged adults, especially women, moderate alcohol use increases the risk of the most common causes of death (such as trauma and breast cancer).
  • Women who drink alcohol should take supplemental folate to help decrease the risk of breast cancer.
  • Men under the age of 45 may also experience more harm than benefit from alcohol consumption. In this age group, moderate alcohol use is unlikely to provide any mortality benefit, but consumption of less than one drink daily appears to be safe if temporally removed from operation of dangerous equipment. For individuals with established contraindications to alcohol use, even this level of alcohol use is dangerous.
  • Men can tolerate more alcohol than women. The ideal therapeutic dose of alcohol is around 6 grams per day. Medically safe limits are 10 gm in one hour, 20 gm in a day and 70 gm in a week (50% for the women).

MCI News

New MBBS syllabus to introduce students to patients in first year CHENNAI: Medical students could soon have their first brush with treating patients in the first year of MBBS with the Medical Council of India (MCI) giving final shape to a revision of the undergraduate medical curriculum. This will be the first major overhaul of MBBS syllabus in 17 years.

At a recent press conference in Chennai, Dr M Rajalakshmi, MCI's chief consultant in the academic cell said the conversion of the existing MBBS curriculum to a competency-based one is almost complete.

The last time the MBBS curriculum underwent a major revamp was in 1997 when the duration of the academic year for first-years was reduced from 18 months to 12 months.

Subjects like radiology and surgery are likely to be introduced in the first year as part of the new syllabus. This will also help MBBS doctors acquire diagnostic and analytical competence for clinical evaluation earlier on. (TOI News excerpts. E A John)

  • Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK) is a new initiative aimed at screening over 27 crore children from 0 to 18 years for 4 Ds – Defects at birth, Diseases, Deficiencies and Development Delays including Disabilities. Children diagnosed with illnesses shall receive follow up including surgeries at tertiary level, free of cost under NRHM.

    Health screening of children is a known intervention under the School Health Programme. It is now being expanded to cover all children from birth to 18 years of age.

    Out of every 100 babies born in this country annually, 6 to 7 have a birth defect. In Indian context, this would translate to 1.7 million birth defects annually and would account for 9.6 per cent of all newborn deaths. Various nutritional deficiencies affecting the preschool children range from 4 percent to 70 percent. Developmental delays are common in early childhood affecting at least 10 percent of the children. If not intervened timely, these delays may lead to permanent disabilities with regard to cognition, hearing and vision.

    The services aim to cover all children of 0-6 years of age group in rural areas and urban slums, in addition to older children upto 18 years of age enrolled in classes 1st to 12th in Government and Government aided schools. It is expected that these services will reach and benefit about 27 crore children in a phased manner.

  • Burden of congenital diseases: Globally, about 7.9 million children are born annually with a serious birth defect of genetic or partially genetic origin which accounts for 6 percent of the total births. Serious birth defects can be fatal at times. For those who do not receive specific and timely intervention and yet survive, these disorders can cause irreversible life–long mental, physical, auditory or visual disability. At least 3.3 million children under – five years of age die from birth defects every year and another 3.2 million of those who survive may be disabled for life. More than 90 percent of all infants with a serious birth defect are born in low and middle income countries. Cutting across countries and their economic status, 64.3 infants per thousand live births are born annually with birth defects. Of these, 7.9 have cardiovascular defects, 4.7 have neural tube defects and 1.2 have some form of hemoglobinopathy, 1.6 have Down’s syndrome and 2.4 have G6PD deficiency (All – figures are in per thousand).

    With a large birth cohort of almost 26 million per year, India would account for the largest share of birth defects in the world. This would translate to an estimated 1.7 million babies born with birth defects annually. In the study conducted by National Neonatology Forum, congenital malformations were the second commonest cause (9.9%) of mortality among stillbirths and the fourth commonest cause (9.6%) of neonatal mortality and that accounted for 4 per cent of under– five mortality. Preliminary reports of metabolic studies from five zonal centers covering 5 lakh newborns has revealed an incidence of congenital hypothyroidism of 1 in 1000 live births; A similar prevalence rate of 1 in 1000 was reported for Down’s Syndrome in India. There are several reports of the incidence of beta thalassemia trait from different parts of the country which varies from less than 1 percent to as high as 17 percent.

To know the Mental States of a Person

The mental state of a person in Vedic language is described in terms of gunas. The present state of mind of any person is a result of mixing of three gunas of nature called Tamoguna, Rajoguna and Satoguna. In terms of states of mind they are called Tamas, Rajas and Satwa and the nature of a person is called Tamsik, Rajsik and Satvik.

Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and Ayurveda all talk about these gunas. The Sankhya philosophy also says that a mixture of the three makes up the cosmic mind as well as the human mind. Bhagwad Gita talks in great detail about the Nature, Yagna as well as diet depending upon these gunas.

A Satvik diet is the one, which makes a person full of Satoguna and makes him or her with predominant Satvik nature. The same is true for other two gunas. According to Ayurvedic text and in Atharvaveda any food, which comes from the roots or underground part of the tree, is Tamsik in nature. Tamsik foods should not be eaten raw. They should either be slow cooked or soaked in water for hours before consumption.

Foods which are from the top part of the tree like coconut, fruits, leaves and flowers are Satvik in nature and can be consumed fresh, as they are. Foods which come from the middle part of the tree are often Rajsik in nature.

Fresh, soaked, sprouted, natural foods are often Satvik and old, left over foods are Tamsik in nature. Most Satvik foods are naturally white.

In Ramayana, Kumbhakaran represents a person with Tamsik nature; Meghnad and Ravana with Rajsik nature and Vibhishana with Satvik nature. One can see that the diet of Kumbhakaran was left over foods, onions, radish, carrots and non vegetarian food, all tamas producing foods.

Shastras also teaches us about Satvik food. In Vedic knowledge, God is represented by the consciousness and whatever is offered to God is the one, which is offered to consciousness and hence all offerings to God are soul–healing and soul–nurturing food items. Only Satvik foods are offered to God as one can live on Satvik food forever. Examples are dry fruits, fruits and milk. One cannot live on Rajsik or Tamsik foods; hence, they have to be taken in moderation only.

The offerings to God include honey, milk, curd, fruits and vegetables, etc. Panchamrit offered in Puja is a mixture of milk, curd, ghee, honey and sugar is a classical example.

Yogashastra also talks about the role of Satvik diet in great detail. It says people who eat less are yogi, people who eat in moderation are bhogi and people who eat a lot are rogi. The synonymous are Tamsik for Rogi, Rajsik for Bhogi and Satvik for Yogi.

In terms of proper diet, one should eat dinner lighter than lunch, eat only natural food in the night and follow the principles of moderation and variety.

Inspirational Story

Every Woman is Beautiful

A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?" "Because I’m a woman", she told him. "I don’t understand", he said. His mum just hugged him and said, "And you never will"…

Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?" "All women cry for no reason" was all his dad could say. The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.

Finally he put in a call to God; when God got on the phone, the man said, "God, why women cry so easily?" God said, "When I made women she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world; yet, gentle enough to give comfort. I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times come from her children.

I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining. I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt them very badly.

This same sensitivity helps her make a child’s boo hoo feel better and shares in their teenagers’ anxieties and fears. I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.

I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.

And finally I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed. The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides."

Every woman is beautiful.

Strengthen your Heart

Padma Shri, Dr. B C Roy National Awardee & DST National Science Communication Awardee, Dr. K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and Sr National Vice President Indian Medical Association advised the people to take care of their heart. He gave few tips to do so.

  1. Follow Dr. KK Aggarwal’s ‘Formula of 80’ i.e. keep your pulse rate, lower blood pressure, fasting sugar, abdominal circumference and bad cholesterol levels all below 80. To achieve these, walk 80 minutes a day with a speed of 80 steps per minute; eat less – not more than 80 gm or 80 ml of caloric food; do 80 cycles of pranayams in a day, avoid alcohol and if one does so, do not consume more than 80 ml in a day.
  2. After the age of 30, get an annual medical checkup done with exercise treadmill test every three years.
  3. Eat in moderation and take a variety of food consisting of seven colors and six tastes.
  4. Avoid using trans fats. Trans fats increase bad cholesterol and reduce good cholesterol. Hydrogenated oil is an example of trans fat.
  5. Avoid three ‘whites’ in your diet – white maida, white sugar and white rice – or consume them only in minimum amounts. They are known to cause abdominal obesity, which is a risk factor for heart diseases.
  6. Do not smoke or consume tobacco in any form as it increases the chances of heart attack, paralysis and erectile dysfunction.
  7. Do not ignore any symptom, which is unusual, unexplained and is detected for the very first time.
  8. Do not ignore any chest pain, burning or discomfort in the centre of the chest, which is diffuse in nature and lasts for more than 30 seconds.
  9. If a heart attack is suspected, then one should chew 300 mg of water–soluble aspirin and immediately rush to the nearest heart hospital.
  10. All heart patients should remember that sudden cardiac death is reversible in the first 10 minutes. For this, remember Dr. KK Aggarwal’s Formula of 10 i.e. within 10 minutes of death, for the next 10 minutes, compress the chest with a speed of 10 × 10 = 100 per minute. This can revive more than 75% of the patients.
  11. Heart patients too can lead a normal physical, mental and sexual life.
  12. Presence of heart blockages in the heart does not mean that a person requires angioplasty or surgery. These are indicated in case of failure of adequate medical treatment to provide the desired risk–free quality of life.
  13. Following the traditional Indian customs and rituals can help reduce chances of heart attack. The weekly fast of not consuming cereals can be adopted by all of us to reduce risk of metabolic syndrome, which develops due to insulin resistance because of eating a carbohydrate–rich diet, especially one that contains refined carbohydrates, on a daily basis.

Code of conduct for Hospitals: Suggestions

HOSPITAL CODE OF ETHICS

"To cure sometimes, to alleviate often, to comfort always"

--Luis Pasteur’s Epitaph

A hospital is a place where people come to seek relief of pain and cure of illness. They come with the hope that the doctors, nurses and other staff will do their best to heal their bodies and restore them back to normal health. They come to the hospital with blind faith that the doctors and nurses will do no wrong. To live up to those expectations and maintain its image as a kind healer, a hospital must have a code of ethics and must strive to follow the code in letter and spirit. American Hospital Association and American College of administrators, adopted a Code of Ethics for the Hospitals in 1957. A suggested hospital code of conduct is given below.

"Care of the sick and suffering humanity is the mission, purpose and ‘raison d‘ etre " of every hospital. Provision of the best possible care, comfort and solace and alleviatiting pain is the sacred trust that every hospital must strive to live up to. .............. hospital is dedicated to the service of the community and is committed to practice, promote and uphold the code of ethics as outlined below.

  • Strict compliance with the laws of the land and demonstrated commitment to the accepted ethical practices in letter and spirit by all staff and management.
  • Concern and commitment for the safety of patients, staff and public.
  • Continuing efforts to achieve, improve and maintain the quality of services with up-to-date equipment, methods, technology and standards of performance.

  • Total cooperation with the administrative authorities and other hospitals / agencies, public or private, interested in promoting the cause of public health.
  • Respecting and upholding the Rights of Patients in letter and spirit.
  • Not indulging in the unethical practice of soliciting patients but endeavoring to secure the acceptance of maximum clientele through provision of compassionate, high quality and affordable services.
  • Ensuring non-indulgence in any activities that are unethical or illegal such as unjustified admissions/ wrong / manipulated reporting , sheltering any criminal from the law or accepting any gifts/ gratification from the drug / equipment suppliers. Administration continuously monitors and ensures that no staff indulges in any such activities.
  • Publicity is limited only to the public interest information about the services available and / or the achievements of the hospital and not solely aimed at attracting the patients.
  • Publicity about the achievements should be truthful, factual and with honorable intensions, desisting from any tall claims/ false promises that it cannot fulfill and ensuring that it is not misleading the public or downplaying another hospital.

  • Protection of privacy and confidentiality of all patient- related information, subject to the extent permissible under the law.
  • To us, the staff of …. ......hospital, a patient is the most important person. As stated by Mahatma Gandhi –
  • " A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption to our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider to our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so."

    The administration will ensure that this Code is known to and is implemented by all the staff of the hospital in letter and spirit in all their day to day activities.
