Curl and lift

For this you need a chair and weights ranging from 5 to 10 pounds. Sit on chair with back straight and feet on floor.

Get back to original position and repeat this at least 5-10 times. This exercise is beneficial for your shoulders and arms.

One-arm row

Take a chair and keep your right knee on its seat. Bend a bit forward keeping your back parallel to floor and place your right hand on chair so that the body remains balanced.

Our hearing or auditory system can be broadly categorized into two parts- peripheral and central. The peripheral hearing includes the outer, middle, and inner ear. The outer ear consists of eardrum, auricle and ear canal. Middle ear contains malleus, incus and stapes. These three small bones are collectively denoted as ossicles. Malleus connects to the eardrum linking to the outer ear and the stapes connects to the inner ear. Inner ear has cochlea that is further connected to the central hearing system by auditory nerve. Cochlea consists of several special fluids which play an important role in hearing mechanism. The central hearing system consists of the auditory nerve and an incredibly complex pathway through the brain stem and onward to the auditory cortex of the brain.

Sound waves or simply the vibrations in our surroundings are collected by the auricle and are further channeled into ear canals. These sound waves vibrate the eardrum. Now, these eardrum vibrations are moved to the ossicles present in middle ear. From here vibrations are transferred to the cochlea in the inner ear.

Cochlea consists of thousands of hair cells that are sensitive to a wide range of such vibrations. High pitched sounds stimulate hair cells in lower portion of cochlea whereas the low pitched vibrations stimulate hair cells in the upper part. After detecting the frequency or pitch of a sound, each hair cell generates nerve impulses that are transferred immediately along the auditory nerve.

Auditory cortex is the hearing centre in the brain. Here several such vibrations are converted into meaningful sound. This whole process takes place within a fraction of a second.

Vaginoplasty

Vaginal width increases at the time of childbirth or regular sexual intercourse. Vaginoplasty helps in regaining that lost vaginal elasticity. Dr. Sonali Aggarwal says that she has observed this issue especially among the women beyond 40. Vaginoplasty involves the reconstruction of damaged tissues of vaginal cavity which tightens vagina and brings it to its natural or original state.

Labiaplasty

This involves removal of extra skin present in inner and outer labia. According to Dr. Sonali Agarwal, major technique involved in this treatment is the laser. Labiaplasty is quite helpful in increasing sexual comfort as well.

Hymenoplasty

Hymenoplasty, otherwise called hymenorrhaphy, is the corrective fix, rebuilding, or development of a lady’s hymen. Dr. Sonali says that it is the most controversial treatment in the field of cosmetic gynecology as it deals with virginity of a lady that has several religious convictions if the lady is unmarried. Apart from this, this procedure is extremely helpful in restoring the hymen that can be broken or torn on various occasions during a lady’s life, regardless of whether brought about by tampon addition, work out, or sex.

Thermiva

It is a non-surgical approach to vaginal treatment. Dr. Agarwal says that thermiva has been introduced as a boon for the ladies who do not want their vagina to be treated with a knife.

Here a cosmetic gynecologist uses controlled radiofrequency energy to generate low amount of heat that is further applied to vaginal region being treated. This heat helps in tightening the portion it is applied on.

Cochlear Implant in children:-

How we hear?

The eardrum vibrations caused by sound waves move the chain of tiny bones (the ossicles – malleus, incus and stapes) in the middle ear transferring the sound vibrations into the cochlea of the inner ear. This is where the streams of nerve impulses are converted into meaningful sound.

 

Parts of ear:

  1. Outer Ear :
  2. Middle Ear: Converts sound waves in to vibrations.
  3. Inner Ear (Cochlea): converts vibrations into electrical impulse. Theses electrical impulse travel to brain via nerve of hearing (Cochlear nerve)

 

What is cause of Hearing Loss in children?

In children hearing loss can be congenital (from birth) or acquired (after birth). Acquired can be due to various infections or trauma, etc. 

 

Hearing loss can also be classified as per language development as follows 

  1. Pre-lingual –hearing loss developed before child could start speaking, it can be either congenital (from birth) or acquired (after birth).
  2. Post-lingual – hearing loss developed after child started speaking. It means it is acquired.

 

Cause of hearing loss is any defect in the transmission of sound through the ear. It can be 

  1. Conductive – Caused by defect in middle or external part of ear. It can usually be treated by some medications. Less frequently a surgery is required to correct this type of hearing loss
  2. Sensori-neural – Caused by defect in nerve of hearing or cochlea. Mild to moderate hearing loss can be treated by hearing aid whereas severe to profound hearing loss requires Cochlear Implant surgery

 

Burden of Hearing loss?

In US Significant bilateral hearing loss is present in ~1 to 3 per 1000 newborn infants in the well-baby nursery population, and in ~2 to 4 per 100 infants in the intensive care unit population. 

In India, 63 million people (6.3%) suffer from significant auditory loss. Four in every 1000 children suffer from severe to profound hearing loss. The estimated prevalence of childhood onset deafness to be 2%

 

How to assess Hearing loss in new born and small children?

Detection of infant hearing loss requires universal screening of all infants. Screening by high-risk registry alone (eg, family history of deafness) can only identify ~50% of newborns with significant congenital hearing loss. Reliance on physician observation and/or parental recognition has not been successful in the past in detecting significant hearing loss especially in the first year of life.

Tests for screening include otoacoustic emissions (OAE) and auditory brainstem response (ABR / BERA). Both test are noninvasive, quick, and easy to perform, although each assesses hearing differently. Aim is to initiate necessary intervention by 6 months of age.

 

What is a cochlear Implant?

A cochlear implant is an electronic medical device that replaces the function of the defective inner ear. Unlike hearing aids, which make sounds louder, cochlear implants do the work of damaged parts of the inner ear (cochlea) to send sound signals to the brain.

Most important thing is early diagnosis. Management of deaf and mute child should be started as early as possible. Success of cochlear implant is more if it is done by the age of 3years. Success rate decreases with advancement of age of child.

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT (RCT)

RCT is a common treatment in Dentistry. The objective of the treatment lies in repairing the tooth which is badly decayed or infected by foreign anomalies. RCT is a job of precision & requires a very skilled & a specialized dentist who is called Endodontist . Usually, it is carried out on a tooth which gets infected by dental decay due to lack of oral hygiene leading to severe pain, sensitivity or swelling.

WHO ALL NEED IT?

If there is a deep cavity, a cracked tooth, or broken filling in patients mouth

Symptoms – The tooth becomes sensitive to high & low temperatures leading to severe pain while drinking something cold or hot like cold water or ice cream or cold drink or tea or coffee. There may be pain while chewing, some people may have  continuous, throbbing pain.  

There may be pus discharge from the infected tooth.

Without treatment, the infection will spread to adjacent teeth and bone leading to severe pain & swelling. Eventually, the tooth will become loose & requires removal.

Some patients opt for tooth removal instead of undergoing RCT. However, removing a tooth may mean that the surrounding teeth start to move & become crooked. This can look unsightly, and it can make it hard to have a good bite which will lead to difficulty in eating food in future.

If the tooth cannot be saved, the next best option to replace it is a Dental Implant.

However, if possible, saving the natural tooth is best, because nothing functions as good as a natural tooth.

Adding a Crown or Filling

After RCT patient’s tooth requires a permanent crown or filling to confirm long term survival of the treated tooth. Without crown after RCT the tooth is likely to fracture.

Until the crown or filling is complete, the patient should not chew or bite on the treated tooth. Once there is a crown, the person can use the tooth as before.

RCT often takes only one appointment, but if there are curved canals, multi-canals, or large infections, this could take one or two additional appointments.

How painful is it?

One of the great fears about this kind of treatment is that it will be painful, but the treatment that is carried out by a trained & specialized dental surgeon is relatively painless.

The infected tooth is anaesthetized before starting Root Canal Treatment

The pain that is felt sometimes comes from the infection & not from the treatment. The treatment does not cause pain.

Root canal therapy saves the tooth & eliminates the pain.


How Successful is Root Canal  Treatment?

Root canal treatment is highly successful; the procedure has more than a 98% success rate. Many teeth fixed with a root canal treatment can last a lifetime.

Also, because the final step of the root canal treatment procedure is application of a restoration such as tooth colored crown or a filling, it will not be obvious for anybody to make out whether any treatment was ever done in that tooth.

In vitro fertilization (IVF):-

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a complex series of advanced procedures, which is used to overcome the fertility issues and assist couples to conceive and have a child. During this procedure, mature eggs are retrieved from ovaries and fertilized by sperm in an advanced IVF lab. Then the fertilized egg (embryo) are transferred to a uterus. One full cycle of IVF takes about three weeks. Medications increase the number of mature eggs a woman can produce at a single time. Doctors can evaluate each developed embryo to determine which ones are most likely to result in pregnancy.

IVF is the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology (ART). The procedure can be done using your own eggs and your partner’s sperm. Or if there is a problem in eggs or sperm then IVF can be done with eggs, sperm or embryos from an anonymous donor. In some cases, a gestational carrier (GC), also called a surrogate is an arrangement where a woman carries and delivers a child for another couple (intended parents). Chances of having a baby using this procedure depend on many factors, such as your age and the cause of infertility.

Overall, IVF can help some patients experience pregnancy and parenthood who otherwise would not be able to. This includes couples struggling to conceive due to ovulatory problems, body structure issues or any other cause of infertility.
