Photo Post . . . 30th Nov, 2012

Snaps from the hospital . . . 

Mother-daughter duo. Both senior citizens who needed clinical care. Geriatric care . . . A pressing need in India which has a huge number of elderly . . . 


Worm infestation is quite common in India. However, we do not see this sort of pictures much often. A round worm brought to outpatient by one of our patients. He had vomited it out. Lucky that it did not crawl into his trachea.

Recently, we had brought quite an array of hospital furniture. They arrived yesterday from Delhi. The place’s gonna look a lot different once these things are put in place. 


This symmetric looking organ is actually the uterus of GD for which I did a B-Lynch suturing. The uterus was more like that of a flaccid leather bag and I had to do it twice. The patient was on the ventilator for 2 days and is making a good recovery. Today, we extubated her. 

'Snow storm appearance' of a Hydatidiform Mole  - - - also called a Molar Pregnancy. We were forced to manage this case as the family was quite poor and did not have any resources to go to a higher centre. SD had been bleeding since yesterday. Her hemoglobin was 2 gm%. However, it was encouraging that her relatives tried all their resources and arranged 3 pints of blood. For us, it was a moment of faith as we knew that she could die any time. By God's grace, everything went fine. She doing well. The question remains on how we are going to follow her up. She is from a remote area in the middle of the forest in the Manatu region of Palamu.
