Viral Fever: Some Tips to Tackle It

The term “viral fever” refers to fever which is offset by a virus. Some of the typical symptoms, are high fever, joint pains, stomach cramps and indigestion, cough and cold, skin rash, weakness, and low energy levels. All symptoms may not surface in the individual, but of the list given, over half of the symptoms are likely to surface. Although viral fevers are said to be untreatable by antibiotics and must run their natural course, it is always advisable to consult a doctor, as the symptoms may go out of limits of forbearance and safety.

A patient of viral fever needs complete rest, and must not be encouraged to leave the house. Sometimes, the fever may rise much above the desired level and become dangerous for the patient. Also, the inherent weakness that this fever brings, may cause spells of dizziness, fainting, or even vomiting. Stomach upsets, akin to diarrhea, are also a feature of this debilitating illness.

When the fever tends to cross 100 deg. F mark, the patient’s body must be cooled down by applying a cool compress on the forehead. This is done by dipping a handtowel or soft cloth in cool water, rinsing and wringing it, and leaving the damp cloth spread on the patient’s forehead. The patient should drink plenty of fluids at this point, for an overall cooling down of the system is much desired. Do not cover the patient with a blanket. Covering the body will merely trap the heat and cause the fever to rise. Keeping the window a little ajar for some fresh air to enter the room is also a good idea. If the fever becomes difficult to manage even with medicines and cold compress, then the patient should be told to have a bath or given a wet sponge treatment for the entire body.

During an outbreak of viral fever, often the first thing that takes a beating is the digestive system. Loose motions may also be triggered off due to the antibiotics taken to combat viral fever. In any case, the intake of fluid must be stepped up. Water, tender coconut water, juice of sweet fresh lime, soups and stews are ideal for the patient at this point. Here, the stress of the food must be on quality rather than quantity. An additional and regular dose of a multi-vitamin pill, and an antacid to combat the harsh effect of the medicines may also be taken.

Most viral infections occur from inhalation of contaminated air, consumption of infected water or food. Hence, observing rules of hygiene are a must in tackling this illness. When a viral infection is rampant in your city, it is best to keep washing your hands, sneezing into a clean handkerchief, consuming home cooked food, and drinking water from a safe source. Avoiding contact with people who are suffering already, and keeping an infected person’s utensils separate is also a good idea, as traces of infection may linger on the person’s plate, glass or spoon.

The important point to note is,that in case the medication is left half way, then that in itself is a risk. Antibiotics do not react kindly when given in incomplete dose, and there may be the occurrence of the fever relapsing, which most often is a harsher and more stubborn version of the original bout of high temperature. By keeping in mind these simple rules, it is easy to come out of a spell of viral fever.

Bronchitis and Acute Bronchitis Treatment – Another 8 Useful Hints

Here are 8 tips about bronchitis.

It always fascinates me that you can always find something new about a topic if you look hard enough, and these 8 tips are useful reminders – especially where acute bronchitis treatment is concerned.

It’s always worth digging a little deeper for bronchitis resources online as there is a lot of great stuff out there.

Tip #1

Around ninety percent of the people contract acute bronchitis due to viral infection. Many cases are also caused due to bacterial infection. If you contract acute bronchitis many times, you might contract chronic bronchitis sooner or later. Infection need not always be the cause for acute bronchitis. If you live in a dirty, polluted area or if you a heavy smoker, you stand a greater risk of contracting chronic bronchitis.

Tip #2

Infection: The role of infection is uncertain, but it appears that once it develops chronic irritation is maintained and progresses to emphysema. The main organisms are hemophilus influenza and streptococcus pneumonia. Mycoplasma pneumonia may also be involved.

Tip #3

Bronchitis would be uncommon if people ate the right food, kept their systems free from mucus and poisonous waste material, and dressed properly.

Tip #4

Bronchitis that is not well treated can degenerate into asthma. Asthmatic bronchitis is a result of inflammation of the airways. Bronchitis is also a result of an inflammation of the airways of large bronchi. The inflammation can be caused by a virus or bacteria pathogen. When a bronchitis infection takes place, symptoms such as coughing, fever, fatigue and headaches are felt. Shortness of breath and wheezing can be experienced as a result of blockage of the airways by phlegm.

Tip #5

A cough could be harmless; at the same time, it could be trying to convey a dangerous message. Only a physician will be able to unravel the mystery of a cough. For example, you will cough a lot if you have bronchitis; it is one of the symptoms of bronchitis. Knowledge about the various types and causes of a cough will help you determine the steps required to deal with cough.

Tip #6

Mullein – This herb is often used for respiratory problems and diseases. It loosens mucus and helps expel it out of the body. It also calms spasms, helps ease pain, and reduce swelling in glands.

Tip #7

Some signs of bronchitis do resemble other problems from the respiratory area. It is best to always consult with a doctor to determine if you are suffering from other the chronic or the acute version of bronchitis. Your physician will take your history and evaluate the physical exam to determine what to diagnose you with. Other tests may be given to determine if heshe is correct in their theory.

Tip #8

Unlike patients who suffer from acute bronchitis, patients with chronic forms of the disease don’t respond well to treatments with antibiotics. The excessive production of mucus at the level of the bronchial tubes facilitates the proliferation of bacteria and other infectious organisms, thus contributing to the progression of the disease. On the premises of repeated infections and compromised natural defenses of the respiratory system (cilia barriers), antibiotics are often ineffective in completely overcoming chronic bronchitis. Thus, the treatment of chronic bronchitis is focused towards relieving the already existent symptoms and preventing the development of further complications.

Well…that’s enough tips for now. I’m sure 8 is enough to be getting along with!

I hope that you found these bronchitis and acute bronchitis treatment resources useful, they certainly helped me!

What Are the 13 Categories of Disability For Special Education Eligibility?

Does your child struggle with academics, and you are concerned that they may have a disability? Have you been told by special education personnel that your child does not fit any of the 13 eligibility classifications to receive special education services? This article will discuss the 13 classifications of disability, that are covered in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and make a child eligible for special education services. Whether a certain child is eligible is up to the parent and the IEP team, but having a disability in one of the 13 categories is required in order to be found eligible.

The categories are:

1. Autism: A developmental disability that can affect the verbal and nonverbal communication, social interaction, and can have a negative affect on the child’s education. The prevalence of autism is 1 in 150 as determined by the CDC or Center for Disease Control.

2. Other Health Impaired (OHI): The child exhibits limited strength, alertness, due to chronic or acute health problems, including but not limited to asthma, ADD/ADHD, cancer, diabetes, which negatively affects the child’s education.

3. Mental Retardation: Defined as significantly below average general functioning, with deficits in adaptive behavior, which negatively affects the child’s education.

4. Emotional Disturbance (ED): Exhibits one of the following conditions over an extended period of time and these conditions negatively effect a child’s education. An inability to learn that cannot be explained by intellectual, sensory or health factors. For a child to be ED they are not supposed to have any other type of disability negative affecting their education.

5. Deafness: Residual hearing is severely impaired in processing the spoken word, negatively affecting the child’s education.

6. Hearing Impairment: Exhibits a hearing loss that is permanent or fluctuating, which even with amplification negatively affects the child’s education.

7. Visual Impairment: Impairment is such that educational potential cannot be fulfilled without special services and materials.

8. Deaf-Blindness: Child has both hearing and visual disabilities.

9. Specific Learning Disability (LD): Exhibits a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological process (such as visual, motor, language etc) which negatively affects a child’s education.

10. Multiple Disabilities: The child exhibits two or more severe disabilities, one of which is mental retardation.

11. Orthopedic Impairment: Displays severe impairments that are the result of congenital anomaly, developmental, or other causes (such as CP) which negatively affects the child’s education.

12. Speech or Language Impairment: Exhibits a communication disorder, such as stuttering, impaired articulation, a receptive and/or expressive language disorder, that negatively affects the child’s education.

13. Traumatic Brain Injury: The child has an injury to their brain resulting in total or partial functional disability.

By knowing what categories are covered under IDEA you will be able to understand if your child has a disability that makes them eligible for special education services. You are the only advocate that your child has-do not let them down!

Sangaray Or Water Chestnuts Are Used As Medicine in Pakistan

Now the monsoon season is over and the flood waters are receding here in Pakistan, there has been a tremendous amount of devastation. In the local bazaar the price of chicken has plummeted, because poultry farmers are desperate to sell their birds because the buildings which housed them have been destroyed in the floods. This is good news for the consumer at the present time, but the flip side is that the price of eggs has gone through the roof.

We now have bright red carrots in the bazaar and my husband came home with water chestnuts when he went to the old Raja Bazaar earlier this week. These are called ‘sangaray‘ here and although Pakistani cuisine doesn’t seem to include them as do cuisines of South-East Asia, they are used in medicine.

If you’ve never eaten fresh water chestnuts you may wonder why they have this name as what do tuberous roots of a water plant have in common with a nut? The answer is – the taste. Some of these sangaray taste like chestnuts that have been roasted on a brazier; others have a more floral taste. Whichever variety I have eaten here though, have tasted very different to the canned ones I used in Europe.

In Pakistan these water chestnuts are often powdered and used to make roti (chapattis) and the water left after boiling them is mixed with a few water chestnuts, liquidized and given to children suffering from measles. They say that sangaray have cooling properties and so are good for heatstroke and fevers. The powdered water chestnuts mixed with milk or water is said to be good for urinary tract infections such as cystitis, and the juice from these edible roots is used to cure indigestion and nausea.

They look a lot like mouth-watering chocolates in their hard shell casing and need to be boiled until the shell is softer. I eat then fresh from their shells which may be why I think they are like roast chestnuts which are found on street corners in Portugal, and Greece at this time of year.

Unfortunately in this part of the Punjab (Islamabad/Rawalpindi) we can’t find these in our local bazaar. The vegetable seller asked my husband how to cook them, so they are not as widely relished here we suspect as they are in the southern Punjab around Lahore. There the water chestnut season is eagerly awaited and it is said that they will cure any fevers that occur after the monsoon. Touch wood I haven’t had one yet, but it is good to know that a delicious cure is at hand.

‘surreal Shoes’ Dangerous

They look like something made by the late Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali who was known for his striking and bizarre images. They’re very unstable and dangerous. At £330 a pair, they’re also expensive. But fashionable women are bound to wear them.

That’s what fashion experts say about Marc Jacobs’s new line of shoes which could either make you stand out in the crowd or give you a bad case of arthritis.

“Whether you think it is a gimmick too far or a piece of fashion genius depends how far up the fashionista ladder you are – on a scale of one to crazy,” reported Erin Kelley in the Daily Mail.

The “surreal shoes” are so named since their heels are located at the front instead of the back where they are traditionally found. Their unique design has prompted others to call the American designer mad.

“A chunky, four-inch heel nestles horizontally just under the ball of the foot. Where you’d expect a heel, there is nothing but fresh air. The center of gravity, therefore, is somewhere under the arch of the foot, forcing the whole body to tilt forward,” Kelley said.

“The effort of staying upright in them will be the equivalent of an advanced level Pilates class. Relax, try to lean back on your heels, and you’ll fall backwards. The must-have accessory to match the shoe then ought to be a crash helmet,” she added.

The costly shoes got mixed reviews at New York’s fashion week. Foot specialists, however, were not impressed and called the fancy footwear dangerous.

Doctors have long warned of the dangers of high heel shoes that were recently implicated in a number of hospital cases. Dr. Rupert Evans of the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff said he sees about half a dozen women on weekend evenings because of the shoes that cause sprain, broken bones, and dislocated ankles.

“High heels tend to be pointed and can cause bunions and hammer toes – as well as placing a strain on feet, ankles, knees and backs, he said. He added that the problem could be partly aggravated by a bit of drinking at summer parties,” said the Daily Mail.

Although he doesn’t recommend banning them, Evans said these shoes should be worn in moderation – and not when you’re drinking! I don’t know if he has seen Jacobs’s collection but I have a feeling he wouldn’t approve of those shoes either.

“They are absurd, torturous, dangerous and wearable only by women who never have to walk further than the nearest red carpet and have more money than sense,” Kelley concluded.

Don’t suffer for the sake of fashion. Wear the right shoes, preferably flat ones if possible. To avoid joint and back pain caused by arthritis or wearing the wrong kind of shoes, take Phosoplex. This natural supplement lubricates and soothes painful joints, and helps rebuild healthy cartilage so you can regain your active lifestyle. For details, check out http://www.phosoplex.com.

Reasons That Make Horses Great Pets

Unlike before when everyone thought that to have a pet horse you have to be rich, most people now are turning to keeping horses as their pets. The elegance that comes with the horse has been one of the main things that have led to people turning to horses as a type of pet. Just like all other types of pet, the pet horse also helps in improving ones health. By just stroking the horse one get to not only improve his or her mood but also helps ensure that your health in general is kept okay by providing relaxation and lowering your blood pressure.

Given a sufficient room to walk about, a pet horse does not require you to always have to take it for a walk. This helps a lot in that one does not have to daily spend his or her time having to take the pet for long distance walks. The fact that horses love to run around ensures that they can exercise by themselves. Provided with the most basic health attention, a pet horse can help one save a lot on medical fees. They can stay alive for a long time without having to be given medical attention as long as it is kept healthy and feed well. A clean stable that the horses stay at really helps with the health of the pet. Pet horses will sleep at night and as a result are active during the day. This being the case, one can be able to spend time with this pet.

What to Consider When Comparing Hearing Aid Brands

First of all, there is no “best” hearing aid brand. There are many excellent companies from which to choose, though. I will briefly cover these manufacturers: Siemens, Phonak, ReSound, Sonic Innovations, Starkey, Widex, and Oticon. All manufacturers have numerous models, several levels of technology, and variable price points. Some are slightly less expensive than others, but overall, these seven manufacturers make the highest quality instruments available today.

Siemens is one of the world’s largest companies, headquartered in Germany, with US operations based in New Jersey. Siemens Hearing offers durable, high-quality hearing aids with cutting edge bluetooth and binaural (“wireless ear-to-ear system”) technology. A battery recharging system and tinnitus management options are also part of their offerings. Siemens also owns Rexton and provides the technology for Miracle Ear hearing aids, which are sold at franchises.

Phonak is a hearing aid manufacturer based in Zurich, Switzerland with US operations based in Illinois. This company is known for cutting-edge technology and style. Phonak has set a high standard for innovation, performance, and miniaturization. It is owned by Sonova Holding AG who also owns Unitron Hearing. Unitron generally offers the same core technologies as Phonak but with fewer features and at slightly lower prices.

ReSound is based in Denmark and has been making hearing aids for nearly 70 years. US operations are based in Minnesota. ReSound has been responsible for a number of hearing industry firsts, including innovations in digital technology, compression, feedback suppression, and the first open-ear hearing aids, which all other companies eventually adopted. They offer a variety of accessories which make connections to other electronic devices much more convenient.

Sonic Innovations is a relative newcomer, in business since 1997. They offer very small and discreet products with some original approaches to technology. Sonic hasn’t developed any really new technology recently, but continues to be a favorite among audiologists. Their US operations are based in New Jersey.

Starkey was a bit of a late entrant into the more advanced digital technologies, but now offers state-of-the-art feedback cancellation and noise management. Starkey is a US company based in Minneapolis and also owns Audibel, Nu-Ear, and Micro-Tech. Starkey is also affiliated with the world’s largest hearing aid charity, the Starkey Hearing Foundation.

Widex is a family owned company, founded in 1956 in Denmark. US operations are headquartered in New York. Widex claims to be the inventor of digital hearing aid technology, but many companies came out with digital hearing aids around the same time, in the late 1990s. Widex continues to be cutting edge with design, aesthetics, and research and development.

Oticon is based in Denmark, with US headquarters in New Jersey. Oticon was influential in the advancement of receiver-in-canal instruments. They continue to offer high-quality, yet quite expensive, hearing aids. Their philosophy is based on preserving the natural characteristics of speech while keeping power consumption and battery size to a minimum.

When you start shopping for hearing aids, remember that one of the most important choices will be which professional assists you. The knowledge and experience of the audiologist will affect how easily you transition and adjust to amplification. Also, you must be an active participant in the adjustment process by clearly defining your motivation, hearing needs, lifestyle, and priorities. Any one of these manufacturers is a good choice, but one may offer the type of bluetooth connectivity you need better than another. If discreet design is a priority for you, a manufacturer providing the smallest instruments may be the right choice. If convenience is important, you might want to consider a manufacturer that offers rechargeable instruments or extended battery life. In the end, success with hearing aids is less based on manufacturer than on the motivation and diligence of both the patient and the audiologist.

Spreading Genital Herpes

Herpes is a virus that once you have an outbreak it stays in your body whether you have any other outbreaks again. There are two types of herpes simplex HSV-1 and HSV-2 and either of them can cause genial herpes.

HSV-1 is mostly associated with those nasty cold sores and HSV-2 is associated with genital herpes. More women are affected by genital herpes than men. Some people don’t even know they have it as they have no symptoms or very mild symptoms but herpes can still be transmitted to a partner.

Genital herpes usually appears as blisters, sores, or mild rashes on the thighs, back of fingers, groin area or genitals. There is no known cure for HSV-1 or HSV-2 but there are daily treatments that can help decrease chances of an outbreak and spreading genital herpes to your partner. This condition is not something to be ashamed of as it can happen to anyone but does need to be understood and treated.

Signs, Symptoms and Common Location of Genital Herpes:

  • Before actual outbreak itching, tingling or aching may occur.
  • Outbreaks can appear as recurring tiny blisters, painful ulcers, cracks in the skin, chaffing in the genital area, rash in the genital area or redness in the genital area.
  • Outbreaks can show up anywhere on the genitals, thighs, groin area, behind knees, backs of fingers, low back, buttocks or even the anus.

Your body uses the first outbreak to develop an immunity to further outbreaks and can appear as the flu and may produce aches, pains, stuffy nose and other flu-like symptoms along with a minor genital outbreak or painful genital ulcers generally lasting no longer than 10 days. These outbreaks can range from very mild to severe and may or may not recur later.

Genital herpes can be transmitted through any sexual act with an infected person where there is any direct skin contact whether there is an outbreak or not. The risk of getting genital herpes is much higher if you perform unprotected sex. The use of condoms and abstaining when you are about to have an outbreak are ways to prevent transferring it to your partner.

You can spread genital herpes anytime but when there is an outbreak or just about to be an outbreak the chances are higher. Daily antiviral therapy has been shown to help keep from passing the virus to your partner. Even though these preventative methods can reduce the spreading of it there is still some risk involved in spreading genital herpes to your partner.

Mnd / Als – Ayurveda Research and Treatment Center in India

MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE (MND) is the name given to a group of related diseases affecting the motor neurones in the brain and spinal cord. Motor neurones are those nerve cells that control muscles, and their degeneration leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.

The disease course is generally aggressive, with 50% of patients surviving less than 3 years after the diagnosis. Approximately 20% of patients can survive for 5-10 years but the rate of progression varies greatly from one person to another.

There are different types of MND, each affecting people in different ways.

1. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS): presents with a combination of upper motor neuron and lower motor neuron signs in the limbs. 2. Progressive bulbar palsy (PBP): presents with speech and swallowing difficulties. As the disease progresses, limb and cognitive features develop.

3. Progressive muscular atrophy (PMA): less common than other forms of MND that presents with only upper motor neuron involvement.

4. Primary lateral sclerosis (PLS): presents with only lower motor neuron signs and is a rare neuromuscular disease characterized by progressive muscle weakness in the voluntary muscles.

5. Pseudobulbar palsy: is bilateral impairment of the function of the lower cranial nerves 9, 10, 11 and 12 which control the muscles of eating, swallowing and talking.

‘CHARAKA-THE SPECIALITY AYURVEDA’ Institute of Panchakarma & Research, a traditional health care center, came into existence by a group of committed, dedicated and experienced professionals in the field of Ayurveda. CHARAKA is gaining a wide popularity as one of the best among the available Ayurvedic treatment centers in India.

CHARAKA pays top priority to Ayurveda research as it aids the metamorphosis of ancient Ayurveda wisdom for the benefit of the present humanity.

CHARAKA is the 1st & the only research Institute in India which is working on MND. It is completely dedicated for its research since last more than 5 years. It also has formulated and tried various new formulations and therapies, which are found very effective for MND.

In Ayurveda, health is defined as the state where physical body, senses, and psyche are in original or natural state with respect to body and function.

Although there is no precise equivalent for MND in Ayurveda, MND can be considered as ‘VATA‘ predominant disease. Vata is considered as a chief factor for the physiological maintenance of the body.
Vata biofactor is responsible for functions of the central, autonomic, and peripheral nervous systems. Vata controls the respiratory, blood, lymphatic, excretory, and reproductive systems, as well as all types of movements. It is also responsible for the cognitive and neocognitive function of the brain and secretion of various chemical neurotransmitters and hormones. This description ofVata resembles the functions of central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems.

The Vata diseases as described in Ayurvedic classics include a wide range of neurological morbidities, including inflammatory, degenerative, obstructive, and functional. Factors provoking Vata result in the instantaneous manifestation of diseases, which can even prove to be fatal.

Most of the signs & symptoms of MND like fasciculations, cramps, wasting, weakness, spasticity, bulbar symptom etc. match that of the classical signs & symptoms of Vata derangement described in Ayurveda. So the line of treatment in Ayurveda mainly focuses on the pacification Vata and bringing back the equilibrium between all the three Doshas (Vata, Pitta & Kapha).

CHARAKA offers a very effective treatment methodology based on the classical texts of Ayurveda. The treatment comprises of Detoxification and Rejuvenation through Panchakarma therapies, administration of researched internal medication.

***IMPORTANT ISSUE TO BE NOTED AND UNDERSTOOD BY ALL MND PATIENTS AND THEIR ATTENDENTS***

EARLY DIAGNOSED & TREATED CASES RESPOND TO THE MAXIMUM AND RATE OF SUCCESS WILL DECREASE WITH CHRONICITY OF THE DISEASE.

Creating Focal Points In Your Retail Display

Retail business owners and managers are always looking for the best possible means to promote items in their stores. But it is not enough to simply place the items into the retail display. Retail store owners need to create attractive looking displays that garner attention. By getting the customer’s attention, they will be more likely to linger, shop longer and buy more items. Focal Points Help Your Customers A key factor in creating an attractive retail display is to create a focal point. Having a focal point is a place that people’s eyes will immediately focus on when they first look at the display. Do not worry, a fancy degree in Marketing or understand lots of unusual terms is not required to create a great looking display that works.

It is far more important to use some general common sense to help you find an ideal focal point.

“But I want customers to notice everything. Not just one area or a focal point!” Some retail store owners and managers may argue. It is completely understandable that you want customers to notice everything. By creating an attractive display you will take the most important step of all, getting their attention. Thereafter, the customer’s eyes will wander and eventually notice each and every item in the retail display. Think of the focal point as a well-dressed woman’s favorite accessory. If a well-dressed woman wears a colorful scarf around her neck and you notice this first, this is her focal point. Then you might notice her attractive loafers or her lovely earrings.

Your retail display needs to be created with the same careful thought and attention to detail. Products May Be Different: Focal Points Are the Same Every retail store is different, with different types of products. A great way to create a focal point is to think of several factors: what product do customers look for frequently and what product is priced to render a sufficient premium for your store? If you are an auto parts store, and you sell a lot of windshield wipers, then this could be a nice focal point for your display. You would simply add other items of relevance around the focal point in the display. Many retail store owners may wonder exactly where the focal point is located. They think it is some sort of magical location that they will never find. Fortunately it is a lot easier than you may think. There are essentially two primary focal points to consider. The first is a focal point from outside the store which attracts the customers attention, to pique their interest and gain their presence within your establishment. What you are looking for is the customer’s comfortable eye level. Walk around your store and notice what part of your retail displays your eye catches first. To help you re-arrange your displays gently put a little sticker on the area where your eye hits. Make sure you can easily pull the sticker off; you are just marking the area so you will know where it is while you are working. Now that you have obtained this focal point, be certain to give your best selling items front and center placement. Use signs to help convey your message about pricing and sales. Once the customers have entered your store it is very important to develop a focal point in your retail display. There are many ways to do this, and it is fair to say that there is no wrong answer. You must experiment to learn, for your specific product line, what works and what needs further adjustment. One of the most common methods of creating a focal point in your retail display is using riser pads, or varying levels of dimension. Most regularly the item in the center or an item which is closest to you will be your focal point. Another popular method of creating a powerful focal point in your display case is the utilization of lights. Combine this with risers to create a stunning visual effect. You can create a “glowing” effect by lighting a product from below, or a “spot light” effect, by shining a direct beam from above. Creating a focal point will easily help your customers shop comfortably in your store. You will notice a subtle difference in sales rather quickly. Customers may even remark how much easier it is to find items in your store.

Inguinal Hernia Surgery In India

What is inguinal hernia ?

An inguinal hernia is a condition in which intra-abdominal fat or part of the small intestine, also called the small bowel, bulges through a weak area in the lower abdominal muscles. An inguinal hernia occurs in the groin—the area between the abdomen and thigh. This type of hernia is called inguinal because fat or part of the intestine slides through a weak area at the inguinal ring, the opening to the inguinal canal……

The two types of inguinal hernia have different causes : –

A ] Indirect inguinal hernia

Indirect inguinal hernias are congenital hernias and are much more common in males than females because of the way males develop in the womb. In a male fetus, the spermatic cord and both testicles—starting from an intra-abdominal location—normally descend through the inguinal canal into the scrotum, the sac that holds the testicles…..

B ] Direct inguinal hernia

Direct inguinal hernias are caused by connective tissue degeneration of the abdominal muscles, which causes weakening of the muscles during the adult years. Direct inguinal hernias occur only in males. The hernia involves fat or the small intestine sliding through the weak muscles into the groin. A direct hernia develops gradually because of continuous stress on the muscles…..

Symptoms of inguinal hernia include : –

  • a small bulge in one or both sides of the groin that may increase in size and disappear when lying down; in males, it can present as a swollen or enlarged scrotum
  • discomfort or sharp pain—especially when straining, lifting, or exercising—that improves when resting….

What are “incarcerated” and “strangulated” inguinal hernias?

An incarcerated inguinal hernia is a hernia that becomes stuck in the groin or scrotum and cannot be massaged back into the abdomen. An incarcerated hernia is caused by swelling and can lead to a strangulated hernia, in which the blood supply to the incarcerated small intestine is jeopardized. A strangulated hernia is a serious condition and requires immediate medical attention.

Symptoms of a strangulated hernia include : –

  • extreme tenderness and redness in the area of the bulge
  • sudden pain that worsens in a short period of time
  • fever
  • rapid heart rate….

How is inguinal hernia treated ?

In adults, inguinal hernias that enlarge, cause symptoms, or become incarcerated are treated surgically. In infants and children, inguinal hernias are always operated on to prevent incarceration from occurring. Surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis. Recovery time varies depending on the size of the hernia, the technique used, and the age and health of the patient. The two main types of surgery for hernias are as follows:

A ] “Open” hernia repair

In open hernia repair, also called herniorrhaphy, a person is given local anesthesia in the abdomen or spine to numb the area, general anesthesia to sedate or help the person sleep, or a combination of the two…..

B ] Laparoscopy

Laparoscopic surgery is performed using general anesthesia. The surgeon makes several small incisions in the lower abdomen and inserts a laparoscope—a thin tube with a tiny video camera attached to one end….
