Plans to install AED device at public places in Trichy

Quote:
In an attempt to provide first aid to people suffering from cardiac arrest in public places, Tiruchi based Senthil Prabha Trust plans to install Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) device at a place of public congregation in Tiruchi soon.

Stating that 30% of heart attack patients died before reaching hospitals, Senthil Kumar Nallusamy, chief cardiologist, Rana Hospital and Director of the Trust, said that cardiac arrest could occur due to erratic fast heart beat (ventricular fibrillation). If this erratic heart beat can be identified at the right time, the abnormal rhythm can be normalised and the person’s life can be saved by giving a shock through the AED, Dr. Senthil Kumar said.

Though major hospitals had the device, it was not available in public places in Tiruchi so far. Since cardiac arrest could occur to any person anywhere at any time, it was essential to keep the device in public places outside hospitals so as to save the life of needy patients.

Hence, he had planned to make available the device, worth ₹1.5 lakh, in a popular public place.

The location would be identified shortly after obtaining necessary permission from the authorities concerned, he said.

Dr. Senthil Kumar said the machine was easy to operate. Selected persons would be trained to operate the device. The device was popular in western countries and could be found in airports, railway stations, bus stands, churches and mosques.

MCI nod for 17 more PG seats

Quote:
The government has planned to increase the number of seats further: Minister

The Medical Council of India (MCI) has permitted K.A.P. Viswanatham Government Medical College to offer 17 more Post Graduate seats from 2017-18.


Ever since the college was established in 1997, it has never got permission to increase PG seats in double digit at a single stroke. The nod was given based on a proposal sent last month. The college had listed out the available infrastructure for offering the courses.

Marry Lilly, Dean, KAP. Viswanatham Government Medical College, said that the number of seats in Master of Surgery would go up to 16 from four.

The college had got permission to offer five more seats in Doctor of Medicine in Paediatrics (MD Paediatrics). It had so far been offering four seats in MD Paediatrics.

The college offers 22 PG courses during the academic year 2016-17. It included four seats each in Doctor of Science, Doctor of Medicine in Paediatrics, Doctor of Medicine in Anaesthesia. With the increase in new PG seats, the total number of PG seats would go up to 39.

C. Vijaya Baskar, Minister for Health and Family Welfare, told “The Hindu” that the sincere attempts of the State government had enabled the college to increase PG seats. It would augur well for PG aspirants. The government had planned to increase the number of PG seats further, he added.

At K.A.P. Viswanatham Govt. Medical College and Hospital

The K.A.P. Viswanatham Government Medical College and Hospital on Wednesday declared open an exclusive out-patient clinic for screening epilepsy patients. It will function in the second floor of new building.


Dan Marry Lilli, who inaugurated the clinic, said doctors attached to the Department of Neurology had been treating all types of neurological disorders. However, there was a need to offer specialised and focused screening and treatment to epilepsy patients.

The clinic would function on Wednesdays. It would enable doctors study and analyse patients’ history so as to provide better and customised treatment. V. Ravikumar, Head, Department of Neurology, said the hospital used to receive around 300 patients daily with neurological issues. Of them, one third were epilepsy patients. They had been asked to utilise the epilepsy clinic for better treatment. Medicines would be offered for a maximum of four weeks. However, it would continue to screen new epilepsy patients daily.

Quote:
The State government has sanctioned ₹10 crore for constructing new buildings for the Early Intervention Centre for Children and Counselling for Adolescents at the K.A.P. Government Medical College Hospital here.

The centre will be housed just opposite the paediatric ward on about 20,000 square feet. A Government Order to that effect has been issued recently.

Marry Lilly, Dean of the hospital, said that the selection of land had been approved. It would be implemented with the help of National Urban Health Mission (NUHN). Other procedures for starting the construction works had commenced. She said that it would have facilities for reception, children examination, physical training centre, vision test room, hearing test room and others. There would be a laboratory block as well.

The centre, which was started recently at the hospital, had received large number of patients from Tiruchi, Karur, Perambalur and Ariyalur. It would enable early identification of autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and other disorders among children. Therapeutic equipment like bolster, platform and tyre tube swings for treating autistic children would be established.
