4 years ago I posted this. In case you come across a similar situation, it is not SANGUMA!...

SHALLOW WATER BLACKOUT(SWB)

Last night on 60 Minutes there was a story of a 12 year old boy, Jack MacMillan who was a very active kid and loved to push himself to the limit. Unfortunately he succumbed to Shallow Water Blackout and died.

If you have a swimming pool at home and if you have children who are much like late Jack MacMillan, these are recipes for Shallow Water Blackout. Not all drowning happen because the kids don't know how to swim.

Kids like to challenge themselves to hold their breath underwater and dive to the other end of the pool. To do that they firstly hyperventilate then take a final breath before diving. If they keep repeating this for a few more dives they are at risk of SWB.

Hyperventilation reduces carbon dioxide level in the blood. Carbon dioxide is needed to stimulate breathing. After a few dives the carbon dioxide level will be so low that breathing will not be stimulated. As a result the kid will not surface and by then oxygen reserve in his lungs would have run out and he blacks out under water.

Unlike panicky non-swimmers who scream and make alot of splashes in the pool that attract your attention, sufferers of SWB die a silent death underwater.

So the message to parents and guardians, even if your kid is an excellent swimmer, the minute you see him or her taking up a challenge to breath hold and dive, you must be ready at the pool side to pull a lifeless kid out of the water very quickly and start rescuscitation. It takes about 2 1/2 minutes before the brain is severely damaged from lack of oxygen.

[04/21/17]   Do you or anyone close to you suffer from anaemia (pale or have low haemoglobin level in the blood)? Do you know what is causing this?

Anaemia can result from poor intake of food e.g. if someone is not eating well for various reasons; increase loss of blood from the stomach or intestinal tract as in hook worm infestations, bleeding ulcer or cancer or in abnormal menstruation or unexpected bleeding. In some situations anaemia can result from bone marrow failure and therefore does not produce enough blood cells due to conditions like leukaemia, aplastic anaemia etc.

Do you need to know the cause or diagnosis sooner than later? Dr. Evelyn Lavu (Haematologist and Public Health Doctor) is available for appointments at CSMC. Call 763 30 580 for an appointment or send us a message now!

[04/10/17]   SOME THINGS DON'T MIX WELL... (Part 6)

You may know that some medicines don’t work well together. But what you eat and drink can have an effect on some drugs, too. Before you take a medication for the first time, talk with your doctor or pharmacist to see if there’s anything you should stay away from.

St. John's Wort

Sometimes used to help people with depression, this herbal remedy isn’t a proven treatment for that or any other health condition. It can make your liver release enzymes (things that boost certain chemical reactions in your body) that can weaken some medications. Those include cholesterol drugs like lovastatin (Altoprev and Mevacor), the erectile dysfunction drug sildenafil (Viagra), and digoxin (Lanoxin), used to treat certain heart conditions.

Ginkgo Biloba

Some people use this herb to help with or prevent high blood pressure, dementia, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and other conditions, but there’s no research that shows it does any of that. It can weaken the effect of drugs used to control seizures, including carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Equetro, and Tegretol), and valproic acid (Depakene, Depakote, and Stavzor).

TAKE AS DIRECTED

Only about 50% of medication is taken as it’s prescribed. People often take less than they need, take it at random times, or leave big gaps between doses -- all of which can weaken the effects. Make sure you understand your treatment plan and follow your doctor’s instructions.

[04/06/17]   SOME THINGS DON'T MIX WELL... (Part 5)

You may know that some medicines don’t work well together. But what you eat and drink can have an effect on some drugs, too. Before you take a medication for the first time, talk with your doctor or pharmacist to see if there’s anything you should stay away from.

Vitamin K

If you take the drug warfarin -- used to treat and prevent blood clots -- be aware of how much vitamin K you take in. It can make the blood thinner less effective and put you at higher risk of a dangerous blood clot. Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, parsley, and spinach are some of the most common foods high in vitamin K. Try to eat the same amount of these foods every day so the level of warfarin in your blood stays the same.

Ginseng

This can lower the effects of warfarin, too. And it can make you more likely to have internal bleeding if you take the blood thinners heparin or aspirin, as well as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen or naproxen. If you take MAO inhibitors, ginseng can cause headaches, sleep problems, hyperactivity, and nervousness.

[04/03/17]   BEWARE OF LIFESTYLE DISEASES!

Lifestyle diseases are diseases linked with the way people live their lives. Examples of lifestyle diseases are Stroke, heart attack, Diabetes Mellitus type 2, kidney failure, liver disease, obesity, etc. They are preventable and usually are caused by alcohol abuse, unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise and smoking among others. Being aware of lifestyle diseases and the causes in our society is vital to preventing them. Lifestyle diseases are becoming increasingly common in PNG. Often initial signs of disease will not show until it is too late. Therefore it is very important to talk to your GP/health worker for regular blood pressure checks and other important blood tests to give you a good indication of where you are in terms of your level of health and fitness status. Do come and visit us for a full medical check and further discussion about your health and lifestyle. Take charge of your Health today!
