A medic at work fixing a patient's nose🏨🏩 @dr.selcukyuce. He made that small bump disappear with rhinoplasty πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
πŸ“šπŸ“šRhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves reshaping the nose. It has two main components to it.
πŸ‘‰πŸ½First the cosmetic component: reshaping the nose to meet your personal goals.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½The second part of a rhinoplasty is the functional part of the operation. This involves improving the airway and the ability to breathe easily and efficiently through the nose.

Lassa Fever Warning

Press release by the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) Nigeria advises all health workers to have a high index of suspicion in suspected Malaria cases .

Video: Nasal Packing

πŸ“šNasal packing is the application of sterile tampons to the nasal chambers.
πŸ‘‰πŸ½The most common purpose of nasal packing is to control bleeding and provide support to the septum following surgery and nasal reconstruction. It is also used to treat chronic nosebleeds.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½As both nostrils are packed, the nasal cavity is completely blocked, preventing the patient breathing through their nose. Therefore, the patient must adjust to breathing through the mouth.
πŸ‘‰πŸ½Nasal packs are usually removed within 24-48 hours post-op, or when the doctor states.

A very Rare medical condition!!

Cystic hydatid disease is endemic in livestock-raising countries and results from infection with the larval or adult form of the Echinococcus granulosus tapeworm.
The most common sites of hydatid cysts are the liver (in 50%–70% of cases), lungs (5%–30%), muscles (5%), bones (3%), kidneys (2%), spleen (1%), and brain (1%). Cardiac involvement is seen only in 0.5% to 2% of patients with hydatid disease.

A very brilliant IMPOSTER!!!

Ferdinand Waldo Demara, Jr. (December 21, 1921 – June 7, 1982) was known as 'The Great Impostor.
While at the Brothers of Christian Instruction, he became acquainted with a young doctor named Joseph C. Cyr. This led to his most famous exploit, working as a trauma surgeon aboard HMCS Cayuga, a Royal Canadian Navy destroyer, during the Korean War.
Aboard the ship, he managed to improvise successful major surgeries and fend off infection with generous amounts of penicillin. His most notable surgical practices were performed on some sixteen Korean combat casualties who were loaded onto the Cayuga. All eyes turned to Demara, the only "surgeon" on board.

Kidnapped doctor rescued, 4 kidnappers dead

Four suspected members of a kidnapping gang that whisked away a medical doctor last week at St. François Hospital in Onikan, Lagos, have been killed.

They were gunned down inside the Ibeju-Lekki forest on Friday during an operation carried out by the police to rescue the man identified as Dr. Ajayi.

Woman With Four legs

The woman in the picture is Ashley Braistle and she was born with more than 4 limbs: a condition known as POLYMELIA.

Another person in history with a similar condition was Myrtle Corbin.

Myrtle Corbin, was known as the four legged woman - However, that Moniker was slightly misleading. While at a glance one could see four legs dangling beyond the hem of her dress only one pair actually belonged to her.

Doctor kills himself and colleague with a gun

Christian Hartwig, a prosecutor, said a doctor shot his colleague dead on Thursday before turning the gun on himself in a medical practice for radiology in the western German City of Marburg.

“There is no indication that there was an external perpetrator, the firearm used to commit the crime had been confiscated,’’ Hartwig said.

Clarification has yet to be made, however, over an earlier statement that both men had been shot several times.

Broken-Heart Syndrome Is NOT A Myth!!!

Did you know a broken heart can actually kill you😳😳? . Yes it is true. πŸ“šπŸ“šThe condition is known as Takotsubo or Stress cardiomyopathy.

It causes a weakening of the left ventricle, usually as the result of severe emotional or physical stress, such as a sudden illness, the loss of a loved one, a serious accident, or a natural disaster such as an earthquake. That's why the condition is also called stress-induced cardiomyopathy, or BROKEN-HEART syndrome. The main symptoms are chest pain and shortness of breath.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) mimics acute coronary syndrome and no initial ECG finding reliably differentiates TCM from STEMI.

If the patient continues to manifest a clinical picture consistent with acute coronary syndrome, especially STEMI, then standard therapies, such as the following, may be indicated: 
  •  Aspirin
  •  Beta blockers
  •  Nitrates 
  • Heparin or enoxaparin 
  • Platelet glycogen (GP) IIb/IIIa inhibitors 
  • Morphine 
  • Clopidogrel . 

Now you know dying from a broken heart is not just a myth 😁😁. .

Doctors will have to start machine learning- Gundotra

When Vic Gundotra left Google in 2014, he thought he might retire, forever. But a lingering interest in wearable technology and machine learning led him to AliveCor, which lets users monitor their heart health from their smartphones.
“No human doctor can look at your EKG and tell you with a high degree of accuracy what your potassium level is,” Gundotra said. “But the machines might be able to do something.”
Although he believes artificial intelligence will take some jobs away over time, Gundotra said people will always want human doctors “to tell them what’s going on.” He envisioned a near future where those doctors routinely enlist machines’ help and developing a good bedside manner becomes more important than ever.

Japan Creates Barcodes For Dementia Patients

A Japanese city has introduced a novel way to keep track of senior citizens with dementia who are prone to getting lost -- tagging their fingers and toes with scan-able barcodes.
A company in Iruma, north of Tokyo, developed tiny nail stickers, each of which carries a unique identity number to help concerned families find missing loved ones, according to the city's social welfare office.
The adhesive QR-coded seals for nails -- part of a free service launched this month and a first in Japan -- measure just one centimetre in size.
If an elderly person becomes disoriented, police will find the local city hall, its telephone number and the wearer's ID all embedded in the QR code.

Deadly Error As Tired Pharmacist Dispenses Wrong Pills

An “overworked” pharmacist made a tragic error and gave out the wrong pills to a grandmother who became ill within minutes and later died, a court has heard.

Martin White, 45, of Belfast Road, Muckamore, County Antrim, admitted supplying the wrong prescription drugs to Ethna Walsh, 67, in February 2014.

A defence lawyer said White was “an ordinary man who struggled because he worked too hard”.

He will be sentenced later this month.

Video: Resection Of A Colon Polyp

πŸŽ₯Resection of a colonic polyp during a colonoscopy.

Colonic polyps are slow-growing overgrowths of the colonic mucosa that carry a small risk (<1%) of becoming malignant. Therefore, they are removed whenever detected.

The best test test for detecting a colonic polyp is a colonoscopy; which is also useful in obtaining biopsies, and/or performing endoscopic resection.

Although flexible sigmoidoscopy and stool tests for occult blood have been the mainstays of screening to prevent colon cancer, some clinicians now favor colonoscopy as a primary screening tool.

πŸ“šπŸ“šIntestinal polyposis syndromes can be divided, based on histology, into the broad categories of:
πŸ‘‰πŸ½Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP)
πŸ‘‰πŸ½Hamartomatous polyposis syndromes
πŸ‘‰πŸ½and other rare polyposis syndromes, such as hereditary-mixed polyposis syndrome (HMPS).
