K V S Hari Kumar, N S Ajai Chandra
The mortality statistics of the medical patients at our tertiary care hospitals are sparse and lacking. We studied the mortality characteristics of the patients admitted to medical wards and intensive care unit at two hospitals based on the available fatal documents. Our objectives include analysis of the cause of death, duration of stay and presence of sepsis. The deceased (103 males, 47 females) had a mean age of 64.6 ± 15.5 yrs and mean duration of stay 7.1 ± 12.3 days. Infections and sepsis syndrome (33%), respiratory (17%), neurological (15%) and cardiovascular disorders (10%) were the top four causes of the mortality...

BACKGROUND: Ground crew of the Air Force routinely handle aviation turbine fuel (ATF) and lubricants and a need was felt to study the adverse effects of these substances on their skin so that remedial measures could be taken to prevent these adverse effects. METHODS: A multi-centric, cross-sectional, observational study was performed at three Air Force flying stations. 109 ground crew members of the Indian Air Force (IAF) who were in direct contact with ATF and lubricants were screened for dermatological manifestations on exposed areas...

Complex health care needs focus on accountability and necessity of inclusion of nurses in documenting and monitoring clinical care plans have brought in the concept of initial nurse assessment and nursing process. However, no standardized form exists in the Armed Forces Medical Services to document initial nursing observations while a patient is being admitted in service hospitals. A focus group design was utilized to explore and conceptualize an initial nurse assessment form that may be utilized by service hospitals...

M S Mustafa, V Rastogi
Resistance to standard antimalarials has led to the need for newer options. Artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs), which require a tedious three-day treatment schedule, have been introduced for the treatment of drug-resistant malaria. Of late, the new generation artemisinin-naphthoquine (ANQ) combination has been developed, which requires a single dose treatment. Artemisinin initiates the action through the cleavage of the endoperoxide bridge while naphtoquine maintains the process by getting concentrated in the digestive vacuole of the parasite...

REVIEW
Anil Kumar Mishra, Rohit Vikas, H S Agrawal
Allogenic bone banking provide both structural and granular bone grafts for various orthopaedic, spinal, oncological and dental surgeries. However allogenic bones, presently, are not readily available. This article discusses the clinical applications of the allogenic grafts, the screening criteria and procedure for maintenance of such a bone banking facility. This article demonstrates the effective role of allogenic bone in a case of post-traumatic bone loss situation and discusses the growing need and present situation of bone banking in our country...

#11
REVIEW
D S Chadha, P Bharadwaj
Vitamin K antagonists are an effective group of oral anticoagulants. However because of genetic variability in their metabolism and multiple food and drug interactions, these drugs have narrow therapeutic window with unpredictable anticoagulant effects requiring constant monitoring. Several newer direct acting oral anticoagulants have been approved for prevention of stroke in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation and treatment or prevention of venous thromboembolism. The direct acting oral anticoagulants include the direct thrombin inhibitor (dabigatran) and the factor Xa inhibitors (rivaroxaban, apixaban, and edoxaban)...

BACKGROUND: Fibroids are the most common benign tumours of uterus. Heavy menstrual bleeding is the commonest concern for which medical attention is sought. Hysterectomies for leiomyoma constitute a third of all hysterectomies. Thus, healthcare cost to society due to uterine leiomyomas is of considerable importance. METHODS: A prospective study was conducted at tertiary care hospital of armed forces. 120 women in pre-menopausal age group with complaints of menorrhagia, Pictorial Bleeding Assessment Chart (PBAC) scoring ≥100 and at least one fibroid ≥2...

BACKGROUND: Conjunctival microangiopathy has been described among diabetics similar to retinal vessel angiopathy. Correlation of these conjunctival microangiopathy changes with retinopathy may form the basis of screening by external examination without expert fundus evaluation. METHODS: Conjunctival vessels widths and tortuous segment length of conjunctival vessels of 96 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus were photographed and measured by the Zeiss Fundus camera Visupac software...

BACKGROUND: Bile leakage (BL) is a common complication following liver surgery, ranging from 3 to 27% in different series. To reduce the incidence of post-operative BL various BL tests have been applied since ages, but no method is foolproof and every method has their own limitations. In this study we used a relatively simpler technique to detect the BL intra-operatively. Topical application of 1.5% diluted hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) was used to detect the BL from cut surface of liver and we compared this with conventional saline method to know the efficacy...

BACKGROUND: Contaminated water sources are major cause of water borne diseases of public health importance. Usually, contamination is suspected after an increase in patient load. METHODS: Two health teams investigated the episode. First team conducted sanitary survey, and second team undertook water safety and morbidity survey. On-site testing was carried out from source till consumer end. Investigation was also undertaken to identify factors which masked the situation...

BACKGROUND: Tumour seeking characteristics of TL-201 have been underutilized. The study was undertaken to evaluate the role of TL-201 scintigraphy in tumour imaging. METHODS: A total of 50 cases were studied over a period of 18 months (13 lymphomas, 11 breast carcinoma, 10 lung cancer, 6 of soft tissue sarcoma, 2 bone tumours and 4 cases each of thyroid and brain tumours). Thallium-201 chloride was injected IV in the dose range of 3-5 mCi. Imaging was done using Siemen's ECAM dual headed gamma camera...

BACKGROUND: Doppler indices form an integral component of noninvasive evaluation of fetal well-being. There is paucity of information about normal obstetric Doppler indices, particularly from the Indian subcontinent. The aim of the study was to find the values of pulsatility index (PI), resistive index (RI) of umbilical artery (UA), and fetal middle cerebral artery (MCA) and calculate cerebro-placental ratio (CP ratio) for 18-40 weeks of normal gestation so that a reference range of these Doppler values can be postulated...

BACKGROUND: Device-Associated Healthcare-Associated Infections (DA-HAI), including Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP), Central-Line-Associated Blood Stream Infection (CLABSI), and Catheter-Related Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI), are considered as principal contributors to healthcare hazard and threat to patient safety as they can cause prolonged hospital stay, sepsis, and mortality in the ICU. The study intends to characterize DA-HAI in a tertiary care multidisciplinary ICU of a teaching hospital in eastern India...

BACKGROUND: Injuries are assuming epidemic proportions globally; and in India. Also, previous decade witnessed carnage on Indian roads, with nearly 12 lakh people killed and 55 lakhs disabled in road crashes. The trend in Armed Forces is reflective of the aforesaid patterns. Behaviour and socio-demographic background of the victims are significant determinants of injuries and road accidents. Community-based epidemiological information on these aspects is envisaged to contribute in their preventive strategy...
