Pregnancy - Warning Signs You Shouldn't Ignore!

If you want to have a safe pregnancy by curtailing all sorts of complications, then you have to promptly respond to warning bells. There are certain warning symptoms that should not be neglected at all as that might put your pregnancy in danger. 

  1. Bleeding- Although a little spotting may happen at the time of implantation of the pregnancy at the time of the expected period, any bleeding at any time in pregnancy can be a warning sign of a problem with the pregnancy and hence should be promptly evaluated by your doctor. 
  2. Swollen face or hands: Slightly swollen face or legs in pregnancy are normal, but if you observe excessive puffiness, especially on your feet and ankles or abdomen, then it is a warning sign as it might be a sign of toxaemia or PIH. Therefore, consulting a doctor is very much needed in this regard. 
  3. Abdominal pain: Round ligament pain is quite normal, and you do not have to worry about the same. But if the pain is accompanied by bleeding, or keeps increasing in intensity or duration, then the danger of miscarriage might come into being, and thus you should be vigilant about it and visit your doctor for proper examination. 
  4. Blurring vision or severe headache: Sudden development of headache, blurred vision or dizziness can be a sign of pre eclampsia and should not be ignored in pregnancy.
  5. Itching: Itching over abdomen & breasts is common during pregnancy mostly due to stretching and dryness of the skin. But if it continues for long,or involves the soles of feet & hands, then you should check the same with your doctor for avoiding liver disorder. 
  6. Fever: The basal body temperature is a little higher in pregnancy and that is normal. However, during pregnancy the immunity against viral and bacterial infections is also reduced . Fever may be a sign of infection and may lead to preterm labour and other complications. Hence it should be promptly treated. 
  7. Unwanted back pain: Mild backache in pregnancy is alright, but excessive pain might indicate bladder or kidney infections, preterm labour, miscarriage or cyst. All these conditions should be essentially avoided and promptly treated to ensure a healthy pregnancy. 
  8. Gushing of fluid: If you are not in labour, but are feeling wet constantly, then it is better to see a doctor. There might be a possibility of breaking of water, and this can be quite harmful in the advanced stage of pregnancy. 
  9. Less movement of baby: Experiencing baby kicking is quite natural during the second half of pregnancy, and if movements decrease significantly or stop suddenly, then it can be a sign of distress for the baby. Kicking patterns should be followed andand significant change should be evaluated 
  10. Urinary symptoms: Increased frequency of urination is common in pregnancy , but if it is associated with pain/ burning sensation or bleeding, it can be a sign of Urinary tract infection which should be promptly treated to avoid complications. If you are facing any of the above symptoms, then immediately visit your doctor. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Corneal Ulcer - Can It Lead To Blindness?

Antrior most transparent layer of the eye is called cornea. It is an extremely useful layer for refraction and protection of eye. Any trauma, foreign body or chemical etc can invade the integrity of this layer and can be invaded by bacteria, fungus or virus, resulting in the corneal ulcer. Sometimes, due to hypoxia induced by contact lenses too can result in a corneal ulcer.

Depending on clinical presentation, a doctor diagnoses the cause of the ulcer and start the therapy. Since the transparency of cornea is very important, a doctor starts very intensive therapy. With repeated frequent checkups if a proper and intensive therapy is not given, the ulcer can progress and can cause collection of pus in the anterior chamber which if not attended properly, can cause the infection to travel into the interior of the eyeball (vitreous chamber) resulting in total blindness. The ulcer can become deeper and lead to perforation of the cornea, causing severe damage to the eye and may require removal of pus (evisceration) or total removal of the eye ball.


Generally, fungal ulcers are more dangerous and occur mostly in rainy season.

  • It is imperative that a case of corneal ulcer is diagnosed promptly and very intensive treatment proper treatment is given to save the disfigurement of the eye and total irreparable blindness.
  • At times we have not only to give topical drops but oral therapy has to be given. Injections in the eye have to be given. Culture sensitivity has to be done in severe cases to identify the causative organism.
  • In extremely severe cases, we have to perform, therapeutic keratoplasty.

Conclusion: Corneal Ulcer is a serious challenging problem with the potentiality to cause total and irreparable blindness and must be attended promptly by a very expert ophthalmologist to save the eye. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Scaphoid bone fracture in the Wrist- A common misdiagnosed cause of wrist pain
The scaphoid bone is one of the carpal bones in your hand around the area of your wrist towards the thumb side. It is the most common carpal bone to break (fracture). This bone broken usually by a fall on to an outstretched hand. Symptoms can include pain and swelling around the wrist.

Diagnosis of a scaphoid fracture can sometimes be difficult, as not all show up on x-rays. For a period of one to two weeks, and an mri/ct scan may be needed to ascertain the treatment.

Treatment is usually with a cast worn on your arm up to your elbow for 8 to 12 weeks. Sometimes surgery is advised. Correct diagnosis and prompt treatment of a scaphoid fracture can help to reduce complications.

How to choose intervention for a autistic child.


The key to ‘good’ intervention  for any individual with autism may often be  understanding the condition, understanding the unique ways in which individuals with autism think and learn, accepting their autism as a vital, vibrant part of their being and then approaching the intervention, the teaching of skills, and / or changing of behaviours, from that paradigm of understanding and acceptance. What most people with autism need are intervention plans that spring from a rock solid understanding of autism, provide them with structure and predictability and incorporate good behavioural principles in the teaching.

 

On the basis of a functional assessment by a competent professional, intervention plans are tailored based upon the individual strengths and needs of each specific child.

 

The intervention plan may use one or a combination of some of the scientifically proven effective techniques such as:

Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communication handicapped CHildren Method(TEACCH) emphasizes on using skills that children already possess to enable them to become independent. Organizing the physical environment, developing schedules and work systems, making expectations clear and explicit, and visual materials are effective in developing skills and allowing people with autism to be independent of direct adult prompting.

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)emphasizes on one-to-one sessions in discrete trial (DTT) format to develop cognitive, social, behavioral, fine motor, play, social and self-help skills. The technique involves structured presentation of tasks from most simple to more complex, breaking them down into small sub-skills and teaching each sub-skill, intensely, one at a time. It involves repeated practices with prompting and fading of prompts to ensure success. It uses rewards or reinforcement to help shape and maintain desired behaviours and skills.

Verbal Behavior Analysis (VBA) is an addition to ABA and is also based on breaking down and teaching language in functional units unlike the teaching of language based on grammar. In addition to teaching at the table top, teaching in (and with) the natural environment (NET) is important.

Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS) is built on the fact that non-verbal children with autism may attempt to spontaneously use objects to communicate. People with autism tend to be visual learners, and a visual means of communication can help them to understand and use the process of communication. PECS aims to teach spontaneous social-communication skills by means of symbols or pictures and the teaching relies on behavioural principles, particularly reinforcement techniques. Behavioural strategies are employed to teach the person to use functional communicative behaviours to request desired objects. The requesting behaviour is reinforced by the receipt of the desired item.

Washing of animal bite wound essential !

The risk of rabies reduces by about 50% by just washing of wounds and application of antiseptics.

The maximum benefit of the wound washing is obtained when the fresh wound is cleaned immediately. It is important to remove saliva containing rabies virus at the site of bite by physical or chemical means. This can be done by prompt and gentle thorough washing with ordinary soap or detergent and flushing the wound with running tap water for at least 15 minutes.

Washing of the wound must be done as long as the wound is raw irrespective of the time elapsed since the exposure. Care must be taken not to disturb the scab, if formed.

After washing with water and soap, disinfectants like Povidone Iodine or Surgical Spirit must be applied.

In extraneous circumstances, other alcoholic (>40%) preparations like Rum, Whisky or aftershave lotion may be applied on the wound. If soap or antiviral agent is not available, the wound should be thoroughly washed with water.
