Bio ethics unit opened at SRM Medical College under the Patronage of UNESCO[/U]


Quote:
“Principles of bioethics would help bring about transparency in health care”

[U]A nodal centre of the International Network of UNESCO Chair in Bioethics, Haifa, was inaugurated at the Chennai Medical College Hospital and Research Centre at Irungalur near Tiruchi on Friday.

A three-day training programme on bioethics in health sciences education also got underway along with the opening of the unit. Around 50 health science faculty members from six medical colleges in the country were participating the programme.

The programme aims at training medical teaching faculty to impart bio-ethical knowledge to their students and enable them to emerge as ethically bound health professionals, according a college press release.

The bioethics unit and the training was inaugurated by S. Geethalakshmi, Vice Chancellor, Tamil Nadu Dr. MGR University, in the presence of Russell D’Souza, Head, Asia Pacific Bioethics Division, UNESCO Chair in Bioethics, Haifa, and faculty members of Chennai Medical College Hospital and Research Centre.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Geethalakshmi observed that adopting the principles of bioethics would help bring about transparency in health care and medical research.

“In our pursuit of knowledge, it is important to maintain integrity of human and animal rights as they are fundamental tenets of society,” Dr. Geethalakshmi said in her address.

1) Tiruchi GH doctors perform corneal transplants

This is the first time that the surgeries have been performed at the hospital, which is attached to the K. A. P. Viswanatham Government Medical College

Doctors at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital in the city have successfully performed corneal transplants on two patients.

This is the first time that corneal transplant surgeries have been performed at the hospital, which is attached to the K. A. P. Viswanatham Government Medical College. Both the surgeries were performed under the Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme.


The patients were identified by the District Blindness Control Society and registered with it for undergoing the transplants. Sixty-year-old Najimunisa, who resides near the Nathervalli Dargah, was suffering from corneal blindness due to bullous keratopathy for the past eight years. As per the advice of the society, she had registered her name with the eye bank functioning under the control of the District Blindness Control Society at the hospital.

The other patient, Palaniyandi (70) of Mekkudi in the outskirts of the city, was suffering from blindness in left eye due to corneal degeneration for the past 10 years. He was examined by the District Blindness Control Society and had also registered with the Eye Bank to undergo corneal transplant.

The procedure, penetrating keratoplasty, was performed by a team of corneal surgeons of the hospital led by Parthiban Purushothaman, Head, Department of Ophthalmology. U. Vijayashanmugam, M.Niraimozhi, Vijaya Bharathi and Helen Rositta were the other surgeons who were part of the team.

“Both these patients have undergone corneal transplant surgery which will provide vision in one eye, making their lives better,” Dr. Parthiban said. The surgery normally costs about ₹40,000 if done in private institutions, he added.

The Eye Bank is the first government one in Tiruchi district and offers hope for poor patients suffering from corneal blindness and waiting for a long period for treatment. Before the Eye Bank was opened, the patients were referred to other centres for undergoing the surgery and this entailed a long waiting time.

According to Dr. Parthiban about 26 more patients are in the recipients’ register of the Eye Bank. As the bank gets donations of corneas, they would undergo the surgeries. “Now that we have started performing transplant surgeries at our hospital, more people and voluntary organisations should encourage people to donate eyes to the bank,” Dr. Parthiban said. The eyes of any dead person, even if he or she has been suffering from diseases such as blood pressure, diabetes and asthma, can be donated. The corneas have to be harvested within six hours of death of a person and transplanted within 24 hours, he added.

For more information on eye donations, people can dial toll-free number 18004251465 or the contact the District Blindness Control Society by dialling 0431-2770040.

There were about 18.7 million people suffering from blindness in India and 1% of them suffered from corneal blindness, which can be treated through corneal transplant surgery, the hospital authorities said.

Collector K. Rajamani, who interacted with patients who had undergone the surgery, commended the doctors and staff for their dedicated service in extending health care to the needy.

1) 10 children hear their first sounds, thanks to cochlear implant surgery at MGMGH


Quote:
The high-end cochlear implant surgery performed free-of-cost on poor children with hearing impairment in the district has started bearing fruit with around 10 children now able to speak and hear.

The children received seven months of auditory rehabilitation post surgery following which they are now able to hear sounds. District collector K Rajamani met three children-Varshini, 3, of Manapparai; Bhuvaneswari, 4, of Kaduvetti and Navaneetha Krishnan, 6, and spoke to their parents at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital (MGMGH) here on Saturday.

[COLOR=#40008]The free surgery scheme which was rolled out in November 2016 has so far covered 40 children in the age group of 1 year to 6 years. All of them have been implanted with an imported cochlear implant under the chief minister's comprehensive health insurance scheme (CMCHIS). The scheme provided Rs 7.5 lakhs for each surgery. The government also arranged for a one year auditory rehabilitation, another crucial thing to train children hear and speak post surgery.[/COLOR]

"The cochlear implant surgery has given the children a new lease of life. The children have been responding very well to the auditory training. We request people to use this treatment which is available free-of-cost for their children if they are suffering from hearing impairment," said head of the department of ENT at MGMGH Dr S Palaniyappan told ToI today.

The children have to undergo 56 sittings of training for full result of the cochlear implant.

[COLOR=#40008]Dr Palaniappan said that the hospital would soon provide an advanced level 'Brain stem cochlear implant' which can treat children who have problems in auditory pathway[/COLOR].

On Saturday, the collector started the 'Switch on' procedure for the 10 children who had undergone the cochlear implant surgery. The procedure is a crucial step taken after 21 days of the surgery to check if it was success.

Appreciating the doctors on National Doctor's day, Rajamani announced that a welfare committee would be set up to look into the requirement of MGMGH for providing better treatment. He also heaped praises on dean in-charge Dr G Anitha and neonatal specialist Dr K Senthilkumar for receiving a state level award from the state government for their good service.

Apollo unveils air ambulance service in Trichy


Quote:
Chennai-based Apollo Hospitals has launched an air ambulance service to connect small cities in the South. The hospital chain has partnered with Bengaluru-based Air Aviators Rescue for helicopters and logistics support.

The service will connect Madurai, Karaikudi, Karur, Tiruchi, Mysuru, Karimnagar, Kakinada and Visakhapatnam through its current hubs in Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The service costs ₹1.5 lakh for transporting patient across 250 km. Depending on the location the fee goes up to ₹5 lakh. The air ambulance will be staffed by emergency physicians and paramedics with the response time of 30 minutes.

Addressing media persons at the launch of the service, J Radhakrishnan, Health Secretary to the Government of Tamil Nadu, said the service will reduce the time for critical care patients.

He said the government is in talks with few aviation companies to extend the service across the State either through rentals or affordable price. “We are working out an MoU to make it accessible to all,” he added.

Currently, Apollo Hospitals air transfers around 125-150 patients a year on an average through partnership with various aviation companies.

Preetha Reddy, Vice-Chairwoman, said launching air ambulance network that connect smaller towns creates an ecosystem that facilitates better access to tertiary care at the right time.

Arun Sharma, Managing Director, Aviators Air Rescue, said the demand for air ambulances is increasing in the South and partnering with Apollo will help them grow. The company gets 15-20 enquires and 25 per cent of them translate to business.
