My MIL, who is 93 years is suffering from wheezing, chest infection and cough. She is given augmentin 375 and deriphyline. Though the condition has improved over 4 days, she is still finding it difficult. Can we give augmentin 650 in place of 375?

Yes, but it is better to be confirm the specific organism causing the infection and its resistance pattern to antibiotics. For this, you may consider Gram staining and culture of sputum.

Vsd is by birth, a congenital anomaly, not genetic or aquired. When there is a hole between 2 chambers of lower heart which pump the blood to entire body & to lungs for purification with fresh oxygen, the pumping action of heart will be affected for sure. Luckily the defect can be corrected but not during pregnancy. Depends upon symptoms. Avoid extra load on heart by rest, avoid swelling on body by reducing salt, eat more proteins to help baby grow faster & do operation to deliver the baby according to symptoms shown by mother about her heart being affected or not, she can carry the baby to full term at 36 weeks or an early delivery needs to be planned. But vsd is not inherited. Be sure to have a normal baby.

Pollution Alert! Did You Know Your Blood Group Can Increase Your Risk Of Cardiac Attack ?

With the pollution levels soaring in the city, each one of us is at risk of acquiring health problems. But can some of us are more at risk than others? Yes, indeed! Those of us, who have A, B and AB blood types are more at risk of getting a heart attack than the O blood type as per a report submitted by the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2017.

Presently, in India, the percentage of people who have O blood type is 37.12%, which is higher than the percentage of A, B and AB type. The percentage for A, B and AB type is 22.88%, 32.26% and 7.74% respectively.

So, what should you do to prevent yourself from high risk of heart attack due to pollution

  1. Stay indoors

  2. Wear a mask when you step out

  3. Shift your exercise routine from outdoor to indoor

  4. Keep yourself hydrated

  5. Consult your doctor for potential risks
