Nothing posted by this doctor yet. Here are some posts by similar doctors.

I have recently had a ECG for a job, the results of ECG showed that I had suspect anteroseptal myocardial infarction and sinus tachycardia but they somehow granted me the fitness certificate, I want to know whether the said condition is something to be worried of or it is minor symptoms of something else.

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
An anteroseptal infarction is a specific area of heart that dies due to lack of or insufficient flow of blood. If Dr. Suspect you hv mi definitely they advice hospital admission. Tachycardia is caused by something that disrupts the normal electrical impulses that control the rate of your heart's pumping action. Many things can cause or contribute to problems with the heart's electrical system. Causes=anemia exercise sudden stress, such as fright high blood pressure smoking fever drinking too much alcohol. Drinking too many caffeinated beverages medication side effects. If cardiologist given fitness certificate. Then no worry about that. If you hv any doubt take one more ecg and show to cardiologist. Don't think too much. Avoid stress.

Can I have an elective total tonsillectomy surgery? I have tonsillitis (tonsil stones) causing severe chronic halitosis. They are hidden into the deep crannies and produce foul smell and bad taste in mouth since many years. Will an ENT agree to remove my tonsils to relieve me from bad breath. I live in Bangalore, ENT surgeons nearby my place may please help.

Hello Lybrate user, tonsillectomy can be done by ENT specialist. For bad breath first you should go for scaling n polishing. Use mouthwash twice daily. Use interdental brushes n dental floss to clean interdental areas. Clean your tongue daily with tongue cleaner. Rinse with warm saline water 3-4 times a day.

Nasal polyp may or may not require surgery depending on its size, site etc. In case it needs surgery it is done by endoscopy. In a corporate hospital where I work it may cost around sixty to seventy thousands minimum. These surgeries are sophisticated. U have to stay in hospital for 1 day. U can start all normal activities within 7 days.

Type 3 tympanoplasty means some bones were missing or were removed coz they were unhealthy. However, this surgery does give hearing loss upto 40dB. The 2 options available are a repeat surgery to partially improve the hearing or using a hearing aid in the operated ear.

You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

Hello sir, I am 22 year old unmarried girl I have nose blooding problem last two nights what should I do please tell me doctor.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Pinch all the soft parts of the nose together between the thumb and index finger. Press firmly toward the face - compressing the pinched parts of the nose against the bones of the face. Lean forward slightly with the head tilted forward. Leaning back or tilting the head back allows the blood to run back into the sinuses and throat and can cause gagging or inhaling the blood. Hold the nose for at least five minutes. Repeat as necessary until the nose has stopped bleeding. Sit quietly, keeping the head higher than the level of the heart. Do not lay flat or put your head between your legs. Apply ice (wrapped in a towel) to nose and cheeks.

It's summer these days and dry air causes crusting in nose. We somehow do finger picking leading to injury over septum which causes epistaxis. Just pinch the nose with thumb and index finger. Keep head end elevated. Calm the pt and do cold sponging. Instill liquid paraffin in nose regularly to keep mucosa wet.

Blackouts may be due to low bp or hypoglycemia. So my advice to you to take proper diet dont remain empty stomach for long hours specially in the morning time to avoid these symptoms. Get yourself screened up for low bp. Thanks for asking.
