MCI team makes surprise visit to Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital

TRICHY: A team of doctors from the Medical Council of India (MCI) on Tuesday made a surprise visit to the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital (MGMGH) to conduct an inspection at the paediatrics and anaesthesia departments to verify the quality of education in postgraduate courses. Tuesday's visit is considered to be a precursor to the proposed MCI visit to conduct an overall inspection on various schemes including the Rs 100 crore multi-specialty hospital and additional 50 MBBS seats allotted to the KAP Viswanatham Government Medical College.

Upon information that the team was visiting, hectic activity was underway at MGMGH. The MCI officials carried out the inspection for the whole day in the two departments. The purpose of the visit was to verify the standard of education and facilities to conduct postgraduate courses in paediatrics and anaesthesia departments. MCI had allotted two PG seats each to both the departments and it was the first inspection after the courses commenced here. The examinations for the PG students were conducted on Tuesday and the officials inspected the process.

Hospital sources said the hospital administration was awaiting the overall inspection. So, they had prepared themselves to face the inspection even before a month.

It may be recalled that the hospital administration had removed the biometric attendance from two places in the hospital in order to cover up the shortage of staff including doctors. But their efforts had gone in vain last time. On Tuesday too, the biometric was not seen in the hospital because the administration preferred to be careful to avoid any consequences due to the presence of the machines.

Moreover, the overall inspection is considered to be a crucial one for MGMGH and KAP Viswanatham Government Medical College. A senior doctor said that the Rs 100 crore multi-specialty hospital inside MGMGH needs MCI recognition. After the hospital was inaugurated in January this year without necessary medical equipment, it will be the first visit of the MCI officials. So, there may be chances for the MCI officials to pinpoint the lack of equipment during their visit. A senior doctor on condition of anonymity said, "The MCI visit may happen any time. We are ready to face the visit."

The visit will also be crucial as the college need the recognition of the MCI to include the 50 MBBS seats in addition to the exiting 100 seats. As of now, there are 150 seats allotted totally for KAP Viswanatham government college.

Siddha gets a new lease of life

TRICHY: Siddha is regarded as the oldest traditional treatment system known to mankind. Despite its origins in the state, its practice almost died out with the introduction of western medical system. However, siddha practitoners here, who celebrated the World Siddha Day on Monday, said the traditional Indian medicine is gaining popularity again. The number of young patients seeking treatment through Indian medicine, including siddha, is constantly on the rise, they observed.

Around 8,000 patients get treatment either in ayurveda, unani, siddha or homeopathy daily at the 111 alternative medical centres of government hospitals and primary health centres in Trichy, Karur, Ariyalur and Perambalur districts.

"There is always a group of people seeking treatment through Indian medicines, particularly siddha. Nowadays, siddha medicine has become popular. Several educated people opt for our treatment because they know that siddha medicines are powerful to cure even chronic diseases," said Dr Srinivasan, district siddha medical officer (DSMO), Trichy, while adding that around 600 patients come to the siddha unit situated inside the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital (MGMGH) daily.

For effective cure patients should consume siddha medicine for the prescribed time, advised Dr Srinivasan. "Some patients discontinue the prescribed full course. Siddha medicines take some time to act on the system and they will not cause any side-effect. Siddha treatment got a new lease of life after they proved to be effective against Dengue fever," said Srinivasan.

Likewise, the Siddha wing at the only Employees State Insurance (ESI) hospital in Trichy district attracts around 3,000 patients in a month. Dr S Kamaraj, government medical officer at this hospital, said the hospital prescribed medicine worth around Rs 1 crore to patients yearly. "In the past three years, the number of patients seeking siddha medicine treatment has increased manifold in our hospital. We achieved this through periodical camps. As enough medicines are supplied to our unit patients get required medicines without any delay," said Dr Kamaraj, who demanded more manpower for better service.

Dr V Shanthi, assistant medical officer, noted that more students are opting for Siddha medicine studies. "The growing popularity of siddha medicine in treating a lot of diseases has drawn more students to prefer siddha courses. The support from the government has also infused new life to siddha medicine," said Dr Shanthi.

Comparatively, siddha centres in ESI hospitals are well-stocked with medicines. Several important and potent medicines are not available at the Siddha wings of government hospitals. Dr Shanthi said it is not possible to stock all medicines in the government hospitals. "As the number of siddha centres in non-ESI government hospitals is high only essential medicines are stored there. However, those medicines are enough to treat patients coming to government hospitals," Dr Shanthi reasoned.

Only those eligible for the ESI scheme can benefit from the siddha units at ESI centres. The number of patients seeking siddha medicines will go up further if the siddha units in government hospitals are provided with ample medicine stock, doctors said.

Healthy diet can help autistic children, parents told

Image

The importance of consuming healthy food without preservatives and the benefits of using millets in one’s daily diet were explained to parents (mothers) of autistic children during the one-day workshop on “Autism vs. food” organised at Pravaag Transitional Centre and School for Children with Autism on Friday.

The day-long workshop on “Food without preservatives” featured two sessions — one on grandma’s recipes and the other on importance of millets for effective functioning of the brain and body.

In the first session, Nainar Mohamed and Yasmeen Mohamed of Ahmed Masalas, Tiruchi, served cooked food samples to the participants at the workshop. They doled out tips to parents on the methods of cooking and duration of storing different kinds of food, importance of avoiding heavy, rich food such as non-vegetarian dishes or maida parotta at night, the dangers of consuming food at restaurants and fast food outlets, the ways to consume each kind of fruit, healthy fruit juices for summer, and so on.

K. Geetha, director, Pravaag, explained that preservatives alter the chemical composition of the brain, thereby resulting in mood swings and behavioural abnormalities. She said that children with autism could exhibit noticeable improvements in behaviour when their diet was modified into a healthy and balanced one, free from preservatives and chemicals.

“Spicy food results in hyperactivity among autistic children. So, it is advisable to use them minimally. Research shows that maida and bread varieties are not autism friendly,” said Ms. Geetha. She stressed on the need for the 45-day assessment while introducing different kinds of food to autistic children.

During the second session, an assortment of dishes prepared using eight variety of millets was presented by members of Annai Theresa Ladies Welfare Association, Tiruchi. Manonmani Sundararaj, president, Annai Theresa Ladies Welfare Association and the other members presented dishes such as sambhar rice, biriyani, adai, paniyaram, poriyal, soup, varuval, and payasam, made using different millets.

The millets used were kambu (pearl millet), kelvaragu or raagi (finger millet), sozham (sorghum), saamai (little millet), varagu (kodo millet), thinai (foxtail millet), panivaragu (proso millet) and kudiraivaali (barnyard millet).

Handouts with recipes using millets and the benefits of consuming them were distributed among parents.

G. Sathyabhama of Evergreen Organics Healthy Food, Karumandapam, described how an individual consumed adulterated products amounting to 395 milligrams during the course of a day. “Right from toothpaste which contains high amounts of nicotine, packaged milk which contains detergent, to tea which can contain red oxide, white sugar with 12 kinds of chemicals and rice grains with urea, each and every item one uses on a daily basis is highly adulterated with toxic substances,” she said.

Exhibition educates parents on handling autistic children

Image

Parents were educated about the various means to train their autistic children on sensory integration at the exhibition organised at Pravaag Transitional Centre and School for Children with Autism in the city on Wednesday.

The exhibition on ‘sensory integration for children with autism’ was organised as part of a three-day programme to observe World Autism Awareness Day by Pravaag.

“Early intervention, especially in children in the 0-3 year age bracket, is crucial to treat autism. Parental awareness is also very important. A community-based approach with the combined efforts of parents, doctors and special educators will help in treating autism,” said K.Geetha, director, Pravaag. The exhibition contained various items that are used and easily available in homes on a daily basis and parents were educated on the ways train their autistic children using those items. They were trained on how to control and regulate the behaviour of a restless child and also how to turn an inactive, dull child into a lively and energetic one.

The exhibition featured different sections aimed at activating various senses; vision (sight), audition (hearing), gustation (taste), olfaction (smell), touch, and vestibular sense (balance). Each section contained tips to treat hyposensitive and hypersensitive children.

All sections contained diagrams and charts to explain concepts in addition to various objects used for stimulating the particular sense. The section on vision was a darkroom with various lights used for stimulating the sense of sight.

The section on hearing contained various musical instruments with low and high frequency sounds. The section on taste featured various food items such as fruits, vegetables, wafers, and biscuits among others and that on smell contained various fragrances, smells using flowers, incense, and cosmetics such as perfumes and creams among others.

The section on touch contained items that are hard to touch, such as dry leaves, stones and sawdust and also items that are soft to touch, such as wool.

The event was inaugurated by K. Meena, former vice chancellor, Bharathidasan University, in the presence of Karunakara Pandiyan, district differently abled welfare officer.

Jambaga Ramakrishnan, coordinator, all women’s organisations Tiruchi, Uma Sorna Ganesh, president, Inner Wheel Club of Tiruchirapali, and Savithri Sivakumar, president, Rotary Club of Tiruchirapalii Shakthi, were present.
