Reproductive health excites doctors

KARACHI - Reproductive health is a cross cutting theme of medical and social sciences whereas its training is essential to equip medical graduates to address the behavioral disorders, experts said here on Wednesday at a seminar held at Dow University of Health Science (DUHS). The seminar was organized to highlight importance of reproductive health taught as a separate subject to the MBBS students at DUHS.
It was preceded by Life Time Achievement Award conferred Maj Gen Dr Zafar Ul Islam (Dow Alumni) and Director of Medicine, Armed Force Medical Institute by the students and faculty staff of DUHS.
Prof Subhana Tayyab, Chairperson Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Civil Hospital, Karachi, while addressing the participants of the seminar said that one in every 38 women die from pregnancy-related causes in our country. There is also a much higher incidence rate of delivery related morbidity and relevant disabilities with severe repercussions on mental, emotional and psychological well being of the concerned women. “The situation in our context is all the more serious as age of child bearing is under 16 years for most of our rural women,” said the speaker.

In global scenario half a million women die from complications of pregnancy and childbirth while tens of millions of others suffer from non-fatal health problems, physical and psychological. Dr Subhana said that vast majority of the causes of maternal and child morbidity and mortality are preventable or readily treatable with simple, inexpensive technologies and approaches.
“The hard-hit are the poor and the rural women and a significant number of them are not dying because of diseases we cannot treat but because society has yet to make the decision that their lives are worth saving,” she said.
The senior gynecologist said focus on promotion of health practice needed to be complimented with sensitization and education of medical students on the holistic approach and scientific handling of reproductive health to reduce infant, perinatal morbidity and mortality alongwith maternal morbidity and mortality in Pakistan.
Dr Rukhsana Rubeen, Associate Professor of Biochemistry, DMC and Coordinator Medical Education Cell, highlighted relevance of integrating reproductive health in MBBS curriculum at DUHS. She said that the objectives was to demonstrate the difference between cognitive and affective learning, identify the needs of integration of holistic reproductive health (RH) courses at undergraduate medical and nursing curriculum and to share the process of development, assessment and implementation of RH modules with MBBS Curriculum
Prof Raza-ur-Rahman, Chairperson, Psychiatry Department said that the right of men and women to be informed of and have access to safe, effective, affordable and acceptable methods of fertility regulation of their choice is universally accepted and is also conformed under our religion. The right of access to appropriate health care services will enable women to go safely through pregnancy and childbirth and provide couples with the best chance of having a healthy infant, he said.

Young doctors: more protests less service

ISLAMABAD, Sept 26: With the Ministry of Capital Administration and Development (CAD) not taking ‘a clear stance’ over the posting of a Lahore-based physician in Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims), Young Doctors Association (YDA) for the umpteenth time has resorted to protesting.

The YDA has announced closure of hospital services for two hours on a daily basis.

The YDA Islamabad chapter has been protesting against the failure of the ministry for not taking a clear position over the posting of Prof Riaz Warraich.

It is pertinent to mention that on the orders of Federal Minister Nazar Mohammad Gondal, a summary was moved by the secretary of CAD to the prime minister, suggesting that Prof Riaz Warraich should head the federal capital’s largest hospital.

Prof Riaz Ahmed Warraich is also the head of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at King Edward Medical University and Mayo Hospital, Lahore.

But Prof Riaz’s appointment has become a serious concern among the senior physicians and the faculty members of Pims.

Staff members feel that Prof Mahmood Jamal — serving head of Pims — has positively contributed during his two-year stint with the hospital for the development of the institution.

A source added that Prof Jamal was disliked by the CAD minister, Nazar Mohammad Gondal, since he had refused to appoint a few political persons in the hospital.

However, a message circulated by the YDA committee headed by Dr Asfandyar Khan on Wednesday said: “YDA Islamabad and Joint Action Committee of the Pims have initiated a token strike in Outpatient Department (OPD) against the appointment of Dr Riaz Warriach as executive director of the hospital.”

“The OPD services were withdrawn from 11am to 1pm and all the doctors, paramedical and clerical staff of the hospital have warned the government that they will not allow anybody from outside Pims and we (YDA) will completely shutdown the services at the hospital,” says the text message sent to media by the YDA officials.

The message said: “The token strike will continue until the government cancels the notification of appointment of Prof Warraich as executive director of the hospital.”

“There will be complete strike and we will shut down OPD, in case an outsider is posted as the executive director of Pims,” Dr Asfyandyar Khan briefed the media along with Joint Action Committee members.

Dr Khan said: “Minister Gondal is not serious in helping the PPP government to improve governance and such decisions like posting of a Lahore-based physician as Pims head will not do any good for helping the management of the hospital.”

Dr Khan added: “We will completely shutdown every service at the hospital and federal minister and his government will be responsible for the mess if the government fails to cancel the notification of Prof Warraich.”

Meanwhile, the ministry also ignored senior physicians of the hospital for a likely posting as an executive director of the hospital saying: “Prof Aslam Shah, Prof Zaheer Abbasi, Prof Tariq, Prof Nadeem, and Prof Khaleequz Zaman, are the senior most physicians working at the hospital but they were never considered for the post.”

The official said that a few doctors can also be appointed as executive director of the hospital by the federal government and they are none other than Pims senior managers, Dr Altaf Hussain, Dr Raja Amjad, and Dr Jahanzeb Aurakzai — a blue eyed of PPP and the federal bureaucracy.

Maheen Karim talks to A Reporter

I was born on 31st August 1979 in Karachi and obtained all of my secondary school education at the Karachi Grammar School. On completion of my A levels I went on for further studies to specialize in Fashion Design Marketing at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London.

At Saint Martins I was taught the minutiae of design where the motto was “impossible is nothing” and the term wearable only meant that the garment should not disassemble whilst on the person. Design training there taught me that there are really no boundaries to abstraction and given the right raw materials and technical expertise it wasn’t impracticable to bring your creativity to life.

Design school groomed me to be a creator, to draw without any inhibitions and attempt to bring to life what I penned down in my sketches. Technical expertise was at hand and the sky was the limit. My degree course comprised of four academic years out of which one required practical training and work experience at an already established fashion house. I was fortunately selected by internationally acclaimed greats the likes of Hussein Chalayan (who that very year won himself the accolade of “Best Designer”), Julien Macdonald, Giorgio Armani and Vivienne Westwood.

My work experience at these long established household names taught me the ins and outs of designing in the real world. How to sift my creativity and channel it in order to provide the potential customer, who may not have as astute a design sense, with a garment or ensemble that boosts his or her confidence and allows them to feel better about themselves and feel special. I was involved in garment construction for international showcases like London Fashion Week, Moscow Fashion Week and Eye to Eye. In addition to this I was also made responsible for collating buyers’ orders and delegating to production units following the shows including Public Relations and Press events.

With a very chic, elegant graduation collection in women’s eveningwear and a host of design house work experience, I graduated from Saint Martins with flying colours and ventured forth to gain as much work experience in the west as I possibly could before I returned back home. I wanted to learn the business aspect of fashion as one of the world’s leading industries. I was offered a position at the global design house, Escada as Press and PR Manager UK. There I dealt with UK’s eminent fashion magazines, the likes of Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle, and Red to name a few. The position taught me how to interact with journalists, stylists and employ marketing strategies involving the “who’s who” in order to gain brand recognition and placement in the market. My experience at Escada was absolutely priceless.

December 2004 I decided to move back to Pakistan and researched on starting on my own design label in order to experiment with cuts and shape for the local market. I started to put together a sample collection playing with silhouette and colour and putting together a women’s' western eveningwear collection. My designs cater to the young, affluent Pakistani woman who wants to dress glamorous and has no reserve. She is confident and bold, and she is looking for luxury that renders comfort.

My current collection includes floating skirts bearing the aura of a bright summer’s colourful palette, evening dresses embellished with encrusted Swarovski gems, smart in vogue shirts with ruffled twist and chic trousers. Stretching from Bohemian tops to Hellenic gathered drapes with silk tassels. And ofcourse, Maheen Karim’s signature stripe!

I aim to use the spectacular raw materials and craftsmanship obtainable to me in Pakistan to its fullest promise in order to create garments for which there is an extreme dearth in our country. The passion to create silhouettes and play with shape will hopefully allow me to furnish the woman of 21st Century Pakistan with a sanctuary where she is able find glamour and glitz in a garment without feeling the need to travel overseas in search of grandeur.

Essential Screening Tests for Woman

A woman’s health is her treasure which is not only determined by reproductions and biological factors but also by workload stress, stress war and nutrition. Regular and proper checkups are very important for women health care especially screening test for women because screening test for women will prove to be very useful in order to indentify the problem related to women health care far more earlier rather than finding out on a fatal stage of a disease. Regular screening test for women are equally important for women health care the same way good and healthy diet, stress management and regular exercise.

There are several screening test for women who can prove to be useful and can make keeping tabs on women health care simple and easy. Now time for me to let you know about the essential screening test for women and women health care.
1 - Blood Pressure Screening:

Having your blood pressure checked up is important for everyone and especially for women health care. Women should get their blood pressure checked at least around every 2 years from the age of 18. The average or ideal blood pressure for women is below 120/80 mmHG. If it is not around that proper steps and medical assistance are required for women health care.
2 - Cholesterol:Same as the blood pressure screening, cholesterol check up is equally important for women health care because it is very important to decrease the chances of heart attack or any other cardiac disease. Cholesterol should be checked up once every 5 years starting from the age of 20 of a woman. The cholesterol level of a woman should be below 200 mg/dl for total cholesterol.
3 - Bone Density Screening:

Bone density screening test for women is also a necessity. A woman should have a bone density screening test around the age of 65 for osteoporosis but should be screened earlier if one has a broken bone or a slender frame. You just have to lie down on the scanning machine and let it take X-rays of certain bones of your body. Healthy bones of the body show a T-score of -1 or higher than that. The score will be different for different women depending upon the bone density and risk factor.
4 - Breast Exam:

Yet another very important screening test for women and women health care. A woman should start having clinical breast exam once in every 3 years from the age of 20 to 40. In this exam no such machinery is involved and is a manual exam. The doctor uses her fingers to check for any abnormalities or lumps.
5 - Body Mass Index:

Body mass index is another important examination for women health care. This examination includes a full yearly measurement your weight, height and calculation of your body mass also known as BMI. BMI is useful for indicating obesity which can trigger serious health problems such as diabetes and heart diseases.
6 - Dental Check Up:Regular dental check up is important for everyone not only for women health care because dental health is very important from the moment when a baby’s baby teeth are sprouting. An adult woman needs to get dental checkup at least twice a year which is very important for women health care. Regular dental checkups include cleaning, sometimes x-rays and complete examination of your teeth to keep them well healthy and cavity free.

Living near the Ocean or Inland? Which Is Healthier ?

Pakistan has many revolutionary changes in the living standards of the human beings. Along with, many health hazards and problems cause human beings to suffer. Geographically, Pakistan is located in the region where rain fall is low and climate is arid. That ultimately means that interaction of its habitants is less with the natural sources of water like oceans and rivers. Best health ideas are frequently dealing with the natural resources.

Fast growing population and mushrooming of traffic vehicles has brought many sufferings. In the process of human development health care tips and best health ideas has occupied the most important position as it is most needed in the time of industrial development. Many researchers have been associated in this job in order to find the best health ideas so that the effect of pollution and over population can be minimized.

According to the natural scientists and traditional beliefs natural health care tips are more effective as their origin is natural and pure. Analysis of Pakistan census 1998 shows that the people living near sea regions and countryside are enjoying better health. Case study of millions of people living in Karachi and inlands of Punjab shows that one of the best possible health care tips recommends people to live or at least visit coastal regions frequently. Medilol, one of the leading Pharmaceutical portal, rated this idea as one of the best health ideas that living near ocean would not only ensure relatively best health it would also play an important part in reducing the inequalities and issues among the rich and poor class of the society.

There are many health care tips that have been discussed by many physiologists and doctors in order to tackle the perceived health hazards of the industrial development. Doctor Muhammad Rehan Gul, A Pharmacist from University of Lahore, presented his studies and discussed best health ideas. He believed that natural environment and natural drinks like water and juices is ideal for best health and recommend natural health care tips by encouraging people to spend their major part of the life by seas and oceans rather than inland. It has been observed commonly that most of the doctors recommend some health care tips and give best health ideas as per their study and research and according to the studies conducted one can see that the most recommended healthier sites are either hill stations or some sea side or coastal region. Some natural health care tips may include laughter, calm attitude and simple life but the living by the sea is of prime importance.

It has many benefits that cannot be covered by any other best health ideas. living by sea i.e. in Gawadar not only ensure fresh air and pollution free environment but it would also assure the tension free environment, simple life full of natural blessings and benefits.

Many naturalists rated natural environment as the most desirable among all natural health care tips and best health ideas. One of the leading portals dealing with the natural health care tips has listed many best health ideas and stated clearly that the inland inhabitants cannot enjoy the pleasures that can be enjoyed the people living by the sea side. Let me quote some best health ideas in order to let people know that the life can be made much simpler.

5 Beauty Care Tips For All Types Of Skin

Winter is harsh and dry but your skin does not have to be. Drink plenty of water and keep skin dryness and itchiness away, they say, but is this enough? Nay! While this might be one of the tips, read our remaining Skin Care Tips to replenish the glow of your skin this winter.
1. Moisturize your skin as much as you can in winters

Do you know that your skin care routine demands a change with weather? For example, you need a water-based cream in summers and an oil-based lotion, cream or ointment in winter. The rationale behind it is to form a protective layer on your skin to prevent moisture escape and skin dryness. While you choose skin oil, go for mineral oil, avocado oil and almond oil etc. Butter or Shea oil can clog your skin pores making it really greasy.
2. Be gentle to your skin in winters

If you find dry and brittle skin on your face, hands and feet, you need not use harsh peels or astringents on them because they can filch your skin’s vital oil leaving it dryer. Add cleansing milk or foaming cleanser to your winter skin care range and peel mildly with plenty of skin hydrating.
3. Avoid excessive skin exposure

Harsh winter elements i.e. cold winds, freezing temperature etc. are disastrous for your skin and one of the main reasons of skin dryness in winters. Wear gloves, scarf and warm dress while you go out. Apply sunscreen on face and hands at least 30 minutes before going out because glare of winter sun is equally harsh to your skin.
4. Avoid hot baths

Sure, it feels great to dip your feet in hot baths in winters but do you know that intense hot shower breaks down the lipid barrier of your skin resulting in loss of moisture? Prefer lukewarm baths instead and make sure you stay in water for less time. Add a pinch of baking soda to your bath to stave off the skin itchiness – one of the leading causes of skin dryness.
5. Eat healthyto give your body all the necessary nutrients and energy it needs in winters

This is the best winter skin care tip for all those who are interested. Eat as many green vegetables as you can in winters. Fresh fruits i.e. sweet grapes, apples, juicy berries etc. are a great way to maintain your body’s fluid balance.

Finally comes the drink plenty of water part about which there is absolutely no denying. Practice skin care by giving your body plenty of water. Water is essential to keep your skin well-hydrated; it helps excrete the toxins and wastes from your body. Intake of 8 – 10 glasses of water is a must for everyone who wants healthy glowing skin all year long and not just winters.

LAtest Bollywood Film ''Ek Tha Tiger'' Gets Banned In Paksitan

'Ek Tha Tiger' Banned In Paksitan

Salman Khan’s upcoming film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is facing severe criticism by Pakistani government who recently called a ban on film as well as on its promos.

All Pakistani satellite TV channels received a letter from PEMRA stating that ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is based on the activities of ISI and RAW and portrays ISI in a bad way thus must not be released in Pakistan.

Whereas, Salman Khan and the director of film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ Kabir Khan has said to visit Pakistan. In an interview Kabir Khan said “Neither Salman nor I have ever visited Pakistan. So why not? We are willing to do anything that`s required to make Pakistanis believe that our project is not against them. I don`t think the trailer being banned is a big deal. Once the film releases, the truth will be out."

He also clarified on twitter, “I will say it once more... ?#EkThaTiger? is NOT anti Pakistan...(sic)”.

Salman Khan has a great fan following in Pakistan. Let’s wait and see either his ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ will have a ban or gets released in Pakistan in August, 2012.

Finally Schools Are Open After Summer Vacations

Going Back To School
Mostly school matters can lead to certain complexities arising within kids & can have an important impact on their healthy upbringing & their studies in particular. Here are some of them.

Encourage the Shy Children
Shyness is one of the major issues in most kids. Kids tend to develop some sort of shyness that can be attributed to the specific 'warm up' time taken by children to adjust at some place. It can also be due to some sort of fear or any other relating issue that’d be bugging the kid. Many kids have the fear to be laughed at when trying to get themselves heard, and not being successful. Some children are sensitive and take such unfortunate events seriously. Parents should counsel their children for such matters. Their problems should be carefully addressed and the cause of such problems be rooted out. The best way would be to make the kid stand out in front of family members and heard regarding his/her matters. A problem of this magnitude can have a bad impact on the lives of children who are not provided attention in this regard.

Looking After Children And Have Appropriate Expectations
All children are the same and everyone has his own caliber. Everyone must be individually attended by parents and their capabilities carefully administered. That helps them to set certain level of expectations from their different children. This really makes a child concentrate more on their specific area of interest that has proven to be moreeffective in development of an individual.
Family matters influence children a lot, especially the teenagers. Issues ranging from getting scolded from parents, getting a detention, strict nature of parents to separation of parents can have an everlasting change on the way a child or a teenager perceives the world around them. Parents should avoid harsh attitude on their children and have a better relation amongst them. This in turn makes them confident enough to share their problems with them. Also it’s better for one of the parent to develop a good relation and understanding with the child. This ensures them a shoulder to rely upon and relieves them from a lot of stress and keeps them from bad company that would otherwise have an adverse effect on their living habits in the later life.
