It seems as if walking is one of the latest fitness trends – it's reported to lower your blood pressure, cholesterol, and risk of diabetes, in addition to resulting in fewer injuries than running. And the faster you do it, the more benefits you'll reap. To get your natural pace up to fitness walking levels, you'll need the right posture, the willingness to train, and 30 minutes to an hour four days a week. Are you ready?
Keep the right posture- As you walk, your chin should be up, your eyes gazing directly in front of you, your back straight, chest raised, and shoulders relaxed. It may help if you pretend you're walking in a straight line to keep your body in the correct position.
- It'll be easier to be conscious of your body if you take a minute to warm up beforehand – and it'll help prevent injury. Cool down, too, for the same reasons.
Use your arms. Your arms should be at your sides, bent at just under 90 degrees. Cup your hands gently – don't clench them – and swing them front to back, not side to side. They should be going out in front of you, not crossing.
- Using your arms will fuel your workout, too, helping you burn more calories. With more muscle groups being used, you'll get more out of your workout.
Take smaller strides. It's a common misconception that taking longer strides helps you walk faster, and on the surface, it makes sense. However, it actually slows you down. How fast can your feet touch the ground if you're taking huge strides? Not very. Take shorter, smaller, quicker steps, and you'll actually get to where you're going faster.
- Don't compromise your form to do so. You'll probably have the urge to elongate your steps (it's natural and how you likely normally walk) but resist. Keep good posture, use your arms, and your feet with fly underneath you.
Push off with your toes. You want to roll through from heel to toe when your foot hits the ground. Start with the back of your foot, and move forward, as if you're wiping gum off the bottom of your shoe. Pushing off with your toes also engages your leg and butt muscles, giving you a better workout.
- The natural spring of your calf muscles will propel your body forward, keeping your momentum. This landing is natural and how your foot craves to hit the ground – deviate from it and you risk injury.
Tighten your abs and butt. As you walk, flatten your back and tilt your pelvis (your hips) ever so slightly forward. Keeping everything tight and being conscious of your muscles gives you a more full-bodied workout and gets your entire body into gear for faster walking.
Don't think of it as "power walking." When most of us think of "power walking," we imagine people with their arms swinging about, taking wide, almost ridiculous-looking steps. That should not be what your aim is. You want to glide on the ground, not stomp carelessly all over it.
- Some professionals are beginning to coin the phrase "fitness walking." And it makes sense – a brisk walk can burn just as many calories as a run, and it's much less damaging for your muscles
Air pollution spike in Delhi post-Diwali is now every year story not being controlled by civic agencies. These days, air pollution ranges from very poor to severe category. In recent studies, it was found that not only particulate matter 2.5 and 10 mcg but chemicals and gases from air pollution also contribute to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. Air pollution in present scenario looks inevitable but some precautionary measures at people's level can reduce its ill effects.
One should avoid outdoor activities in morning and evening hours (particularly respiratory patients). Try to use a properly fitted face mask when to go outside. Avoid visiting heavy traffic areas. Keep house windows and doors closed. The air purifier is only useful in closed space with the air conditioner on.
Epithelial Ovarian Cancer is a condition in which malignant tumor emerges from the tissue lining in the outer surface of the ovary. Epithelial tumors are usually benign, but this form of malignancy has been found to be the most common type of ovarian cancer. Moreover, it cannot be diagnosed until in its advanced stage. Medical research shows that factors such as multiple pregnancies, delayed childbirth and early menarche seem to raise the risk of ovarian cancer, while dietary and environmental factors also play a significant role in it.
1. A majority of the patients have been observed to have extensive intra-abdominal growth.
2. They may experience discomfort or swelling of the abdominal region.
3. The feeling of being bloated, lack of appetite, unnatural weight alteration, dyspepsia, malaise, and urinary problems are frequently reported symptoms.
4. Patients also experience constipation and other gastrointestinal problems.
The first step towards treatment of ovarian cancer is to diagnose the condition. A thorough pelvic examination (consisting of an examination of the vagina, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix) will help to pin point any abnormality of the ovary. If the doctor notes nodularity, firmness or lack of tenderness during the examination, these can be taken as symptoms of malignancy of epithelial ovarian tumors. Ultrasound examination of the abdominal region will also help to locate abnormality in the tissues on the outer surface of the ovary. The next logical step towards treatment is getting a biopsy. During this procedure potentially malignant cells are removed and then diagnosed by a pathologist to conclude if the cells are cancerous or not. The process of removal is known as laparotomy.
Apart from a handful of stage one patients, most women with epithelial ovarian cancer receive chemotherapy. The standard treatment for this type of ovarian cancer is the surgical elimination of tumor. This includes total abdominal hysterectomy, a surgery in which the uterus and cervix is removed through an incision in the abdomen. Post surgical treatment consists of taxane-platinum chemotherapy. Patients with minimal residual cancer undergo external radiation therapy or intraperitoneal chemotherapy (radioactive liquid is channelled into the abdomen with the help of a catheter).
A lot of research has been done in this field and a variety of clinical trials are available for a patient, if he/she wishes to be a part of it. Leading methods are immunotherapy and targeted therapy are also available. Immunotherapy uses the immune system of the patient to battle cancer. Bodily substances or substances created in the lab are used to restore and boost the body’s natural defence mechanisms against cancer. Targeted therapy, on the other hand, uses substances to identify the cancer and attack the malignant cells without jeopardizing non-cancerous cells.

Mechanical ventilation is the artificial method of assisting a person to breathe with the help of a device called ventilator. It is employed when a person’s spontaneous breathing who has been affected and cannot breathe on his/her own.
When is Mechanical Ventilation indicated?
Several injuries or other medical conditions could call for assisted breathing-
• Apnea (inhalation muscles become non-functional) that leads to intoxication and respiratory arrest
• Lung injury or trauma that leads to an inadequate exchange of gases between the lungs
• Acute asthma that requires intubation
• Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
• Obesity hypoventilation syndrome
• Respiratory acidosis (excessive carbon dioxide in the blood)
• Respiratory distress like tachypnea that leads to rapid breathing
• Hypoxemia (too little oxygen in the blood)
• Muscular dystrophy (weakening of skeletal muscles)
• Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (neurons controlling the voluntary muscles die)
Duration of artificial respiration
1. It is used for the entire duration of a surgery.
2. Long-term ventilation is necessary for people suffering from chronic illnesses who have been hospitalized. In such cases, special measures are taken to stabilize the trachea.
3. It can be used by ailing persons at home as well.
How is mechanical ventilation performed?
1. A tube is inserted into the trachea. This process is called intubation. The tube goes in through the mouth or nose (endotracheal tube). The tube is kept in place with a metal strap that goes around the head. The other end of the tube is attached to the ventilator. The ventilator pumps oxygen and other gases into the lungs. It can be a painful process, and before surgeries, it is performed under anaesthesia.
2. The tube can be inserted through a surgical hole in the throat. This process is called tracheotomy.
When the ventilator applies pressure to blow air into the lungs, it is called positive pressure. the exhalation can be done by the person himself/herself or if spontaneous respiration is compromised, the ventilator will help pump out the carbon dioxide.
Both types of tubes affect a person’s ability to speak because they pass through the vocal chords. Tracheotomy is performed on people who will require ventilation for long stretches of time because endotracheal tubes are uncomfortable and sometimes painful.
Risks associated with artificial ventilation:
1. The gravest risk is that of pneumonia. A person who is undergoing ventilation is already physically weak. And that makes the person susceptible to a wide range of diseases. The tube that is inserted into the trachea allows the entry of different types of bacteria. The result is Ventilation Associated Pneumonia (VAP). Because the tube is always present in the trachea, a person cannot cough. Coughing flushes out many bacteria. VAP is curable with antibiotics.
2. Endotracheal tubes may also lead to a sinus infection
3. Pneumothorax is yet another risk linked with artificial ventilation. Air leaks from the lungs and this causes pain and in extreme cases may even lead to the collapse of the lungs.
4. Because air is pushed into the lungs with pressure, it might cause lung damage.
5. Too much oxygen is also harmful to the lungs.
Taking a person off ventilation
This process is called weaning. The ventilator is turned off but still attached to the person. The person is allowed to breathe on his/her own. If there are difficulties, the ventilator is turned back on. It is like a trial run. Gradually the individual develops the ability to breathe on his/her own.
Mechanical ventilation is a painful and often risky method. But when a person is unable to breathe, it is the only way to save his/her life.
