KUALA LUMPUR: Unknown to them, thousands of Malaysians are walking time bombs liable to explode anytime.

These people are unaware they have irregular heartbeats which could lead to blood clots or burst arteries that could result in death or severe physical incapacitation such as paralysis.

Atrial Fibrillation-Strike Out Stroke chairman Prof Dr Sim Kui Hian said 20% out of 49,000 patients with high blood pressure, were discovered to have irregular heartbeats.


Dilema of shaking hands

October 24, 2012

I AGREE 100% with Veteran filmmaker Tan Sri L. Krishnan who said, “Do you know why we Indians greet each other by putting our palms together?” while demonstrating the traditional Indian gesture of greeting. “So that we do not have to wash our hands after shaking someone else’s,” he quipped.
We Myanmar Muslims usually give salaam like a salute with our right palm on forehead. This is better than shake hands… (more…)

Blessing in disguise: R Ba Pe proposed but God disposed.

June 26, 2012

In my Final Part 2 Medical, short case, Professor Reggie Ba Pe was my examiner and I got the paraplegic patient.

We all know that in CNS cases like this, if not well prepared the candidate could easily fail.

But for me in addition to my good preparation and extra four months’ revision just before examination had given me plenty of times to even review the prescribed text book Davidson for seven times. (I used to read cover to cover including foot notes)

I have a good luck of coaching on these CNS cases esp. PARAPLEGIA by about half a dozen of the BEST lecturers: Prof. Dr Daw Myint Myint Aye, Dr U Kyaw Myint, Dr U Mg Mg Wint, Dr Daw Ma Ma Gyi, Dr Than Yin Mar, Dr U Kyaw Hla and others.

Interesting F/Bs (foreign bodies) I encountered

February 26, 2011

Some foreign bodies may be found in the rectum that were initially swallowed but then present with complications in the rectum. Yesterday, I had seen a Burmese worker complaining of a bone piece in his anal canal. At first I cannot believe him when he complained of pain in anus and he could feel the big fish bone stuck across the anus. I even try to explain that it may be the tip of the Sacrum/Coccyx bone.

The Bodhisatta then entered the womb of the queen. When born, there was a heavy rain-fall in the city. As he was born wet he was called Temiya.

Frozen shoulder or stiff shoulder

November 24, 2010

Source: Adhesive capsulitis of shoulder. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frozen shoulder, medically referred to as adhesive capsulitis, is a disorder in which the shoulder capsule, the connective tissue surrounding the glenohumeral joint of the shoulder, becomes inflamed and stiff, greatly restricting motion and causing chronic pain.

Adhesive capsulitis is a painful and disabling condition that often causes great frustration for patients and caregivers due to slow recovery. Movement of the shoulder is severely restricted. Pain is usually constant, worse at night, when the weather is colder, and along with the restricted movement can make even small tasks impossible. Certain movements or bumps can cause sudden onset of tremendous pain and cramping that can last several minutes.
