HELP TALKS- Dr. Nishit Shah on "Sinusitis- Know what it is and How it is treatable"

This video is a talk conducted by Dr. Nishit Shah at HELP on 21st January' 09 : topic - "Sinusitis- Know what it is and How it is treatable"

Governing body member - All India Rhinology Society.

Sinusitis is defined as inflammation of the sinuses, but is used loosely (by the lay person) to mean anything from headache and cold to nasal obstruction. It occurs usually due to infection from the nose and could be bacterial, viral or fungal. The treatment for acute sinusitis is medical, but when it is chronic and unresponsive to medical treatment, then the option is endoscopic sinus surgery. In the past, and probably even today, sinus surgery did not have a great reputation and the majority of patients would be symptomatic after surgery. But the understanding of sinusitis and it's treatment has changed considerably in the last 15 years and today- with endoscopic surgery, the approach is more physiological, the surgery less radical and the results significantly better. Investigations such as CT scan and diagnostic nasal endoscopy have helped to differentiate cases for surgery against those who would do very well with medical treatment. We will discuss the aetiology, diagnosis, treatment and complications of sinusitis.

मैं डॉक्टर के नुस्खे कैसे समझूँ

मैं डॉक्टर के नुस्खे कैसे समझूँ

आपके डॉक्टर के नुस्खे कैसे पढ़ें - समझें :-

आपके अधिकतर डॉक्टर के प्रिसक्रिप्शन डॉक्टर के नाम, पते और फोन नम्बर के साथ छपे पैड पर होते हैं । उसमें आपका नाम, पता और उम्र और डॉक्टर के हत्साक्षर, आपके लक्षण और अनुमानित निदान, परीक्षण (टेस्ट) की सलाह और आपकी चिकित्सा का विवरण होता है । चिकित्सा का विवरण इस प्रकार होता है :-

  • दवा का नाम ।
  • दवा की मात्रा ।
  • दवा कितनी बार ली जाए ।
  • दवा कब ली जाए ।
  • दवा कैसे ली जाए ।
  • दवा कब तक ली जाए ।

साधारण उपयोगी चिकित्सकीय संक्षप्तिकरण शब्द :-

ग्रीक और लैटिन भाषा से लिये शब्दों और चिन्हों का उपयोग अक्सर डॉक्टर करते हैं । यदि आप इसे नहीं समझ पाते तो डॉक्टर अथवा दवा विकेता ही इसे समझ लेते हैं । क्योंकि आपको मौखिक निदेश प्राय याद नहीं रह पाते और घर आने पर पुन आपको इस संदर्भ की जरूरत पड़ सकती है ।

यदि अंग्रेजी में आपको समझ में नहीं आता तो जरूरी है कि आप डॉक्टर से ही हिन्दी या मराठी में निदेशों को लिखने को कहें ।

दवा कितनी बार ली जाए :-

इससे पता चलता है कि दिन में कितनी बार दवा लेना है ।

o.d. दिन में एक बार
b.d./b.i.d. दिन में दो बार
t.d.s. दिन में तीन बार
q.i.d. दिन में चार बार

दवा कब लेवें :-

यह दवा के समय और भोजन के संदर्भ में दर्शाता है ।

a.c. भोजन के पहले
h.s. सोने के पहले
i.n.t. भोजन के बीच में
p.c. भोजन के बाद

कितनी मात्रा में दवा लेवें :-

यह दवा कि कितनी मात्रा दर्शाता है ।

caps कैपसूल
gtt. ड्राप (बूंद)
tab टैबलेट (गोली)
mg. मिली ग्राम
mcg. माईक्रो ग्राम
ml. मिली लीटर
tbsp टेबल स्पून (15 मि.ली.)
tsp. चाय का चम्मच (5 मि.ली.)
i, ii, iii, iiii दवा की मात्रा की संख्या (1,2,3,4)

दवा का उपयोग कैसे करें :-

प्राय डॉक्टर साधारण भाषा में R या Ld लिखकर साईड लिखते हैं । इसके आलावा भी कई सीनियर डॉक्टर संक्षिप्त शब्दों का उपयोग करते हैं ।

ad सीधा कान al दायां कान
od सीधा आँख os दायीं आँख
ou दोनों आँखें c या o साथ
s या o बगैर po मौखिक
sl जीभ के नीचे top चमड़ी पर लगाने के लिये

सामान्य प्रिसक्रिप्शन कैसा होता है - उदाहरण -

डॉ. अ.ब.स. एम.डी. (मेडिसिन) पता व सम्पर्प नम्बर

रोगी का नाम : क्षत्रज्ञ उम्र : लिंग : तारीख

मुख्य शिकायत/लक्षण

लक्षण की अवधि

अन्य उपस्थित रोग

पारीवारिक इतिहास

चिकत्सकीय परीक्षा - ज्वर, ब्लड प्रेशर


परीक्षण की सलाह

उपयोग करने की दवा

डॉक्टर के हस्ताक्षर

दवा के उपयोग में सावधानियाँ

दवा के उपयोग में सावधानियाँ
सावधानी क्यों बरतें ?

बीमारी और स्वास्थ्य की समस्या से छुटकारा पाने के लिये दवा लेना जरूरी है । मामुली सिर दर्द या बुखार के लिये सीधे दुकान से दवा ली जा सकती है अथवा रोगी की पर्याप्त जाँच के बाद डॉक्टर विशिष्ट निदान कर दवा देता है ।

किसी भी प्रकार से दवा रोग के लक्षणों से आराम तो दिलाती है । कभी सही मात्रा व सही योग में दवा न लेने पर इससे कई विभिन्न समस्याएँ पैदा हो जाती है । इसलिए भले ही आप दवा की दुकान से सीधे खरीद कर अथवा डॉक्टर के परामर्श के बाद दवा का उपयोग करें तो पूरी सावधानी बरतना जरूरी है ।
दवा के बारे में आप क्या विवरण पढ़ते और समझते हैं :-

औषधी का नाम, उसके ब्राण्ड का नाम, मात्रा, उसकी अन्य उपयोगी फीचर जैसे सस्टेन्ड या एक्सटेन्डेड अवधि का दवा ।

दवा का वांछित असर और दवा का असर कैसे होगा इसकी जानकारी जैसे - पैरासिटामाल - बुखार कम करती है न कि इन्फैक्शन और इसका लाक्षणिक प्रभाव दो या तीन बार लेने पर होता है ।

सही तरीके से दवा कितनी बार और किस तरीके से लेना है । जैसे - दूध के साथ (भोजन के पहले) या भोजन के बाद रात में (जैसे निद्राकारक दवा), चबाकर लेना है या निगलना है आदि ।

दवा के अवांछित प्रभाव और उन्हें कैसे कम किया जा सकता है । जैसे - एलर्जी शामक दवा लेने से सुस्ती आती है तो उन्हें रात में अथवा भोजन के बाद लिया जाय ।

दवा के संभावित अन्तर-प्रतिक्रिया जैसे - भोजन, मध्यपान अथवा अन्य दवा के साथ प्रतिक्रिया व इनसे कैसे बचा जाय । जैसे - हैलोपेरिडॉल और मद्यपान या माओ-इनहिबिटार के साथ बी.पी. की प्रतिक्रिया आदि ।

दवा उपयोग की अवधि में बचने की प्रतिक्रियाएँ जैसे एन्टी हिस्टामिन या कोडीन युक्त खाँसी का सीरप वाहन का चालन न करें ।
दवा खरीदने और उपयोग में बरती जाने वाली सावधानियाँ :-

लेबल को ध्यान से पढें और उसकी औषधी को समझें, दवा का नाम पढें (कई औषधि स्पेलिंग और उच्चारण में एक जैसी लगती है) । दवा विकेता से सही मात्रा और अवधि की जानकारी ले लेवें ।

स्वयं से दवा कभी न लें । जैसे, दवा की मात्रा स्वयं ही घटाएँ या बढाएँ नहीं । प्रभाव न करने पर या तकलीफ होने पर बिना डॉक्टर की सलाह के ब्लड प्रेशर, हृदय रोग, मधुमेह की दवा कभी न रोकें ।

बिना डॉक्टर की सलाह के सीधी खरीदी दवा के साथ डॉक्टर की लिखी दवा का एक साथ उपयोग न करें । यदि आप किसी प्रकार की घरेलू दवा या आयुर्वेदिक दवा ले रहे हो तो डॉक्टर को इसकी सूचना देवें क्योंकि कभी कभी ऐसी दवाएँ एलोपेथी दवा के साथ गंभीर प्रतिक्रिया कर सकती है । यदि डॉक्टर को इसका पता न लगे तो वह आपकी चिकित्सा भी नहीं कर सकता ।

पक्के तौर पर घर में आपके अलावा किसी अन्य सदस्य को आपकी दवा की जानकारी होनी चाहिये । ताकि गंभीर समस्या होने पर वह डॉक्टर को समझा सके ।

आपको जैसा बताया गया है उसी तरीके से दवा लेवें, गोली को कभी तोड़े, चूरा न करें अथवा किसी सीरप में न घोलें । ऐसा करने से पहले डॉक्टर से सलाह ले लेवें । कभी कभी दवा का या तो असर नहीं होता अथवा अधिक प्रतिक्रिया भी हो सकती है । कभी-कभी दूध में भी घोलने से ऐसा हो सकता है ।

दवा की एक्सपायरी (प्रभावी काल) को सावधानी से देखें । चाहे वह आपके घर में हो अथवा खरीद रहे हों तारीख जरूर देखें । तारीख के बाद ही दवा के उपयोग के अवांछित दुष्परिणाम हो सकते हैं ।

अन्य किसी के लिये लिखि दवा, भले ही उसके लिये अच्छी हो आप उसे लेने का दुस्साहस न करें । आपके शरीर की जरूरत, रोग के लक्षण और दवा की प्रतिक्रिया सबके लिये अलग-अलग होती है । इसलिए डॉक्टर की सलाह से बच कर शार्टकर्ट मारकर अपने जीवन को धोके में न डालें ।

आपके डॉक्टर को आपकी एलर्जी आदि की पूरी जानकारी देवें और स्वास्थ्य समस्याएँ जैसे ब्लड प्रेशर, मधुमेह, एपिलेप्सी, हृदय रोग, गुर्दे का रोग, अस्थमा, गेस्ट्राइटिस आदि की जानकारी और कौनसी दवा आप ले रहे हैं पूरी बात अपने डॉक्टर को बताएँ ।

दवा को अच्छी तरह, सीधी धूप से बचाकर, शुष्क स्थान पर सुरक्षित रखें । तीखी गंध वाली दवा से दूर रखें । जब भी दवा लें तो उसका कवर पढ लेवें । अंधेरे में दवा कभी न लेवें । जैसे भूल जाने पर आधी नीन्द से उठकर कभी दवा न लेवें ।

सामान्यत दवा लेते समय मध्यपान न करें क्योंकि शराब से दवा के अवांछित प्रभाव हो सकते हैं जोकि कभी-कभी अत्यन्त गंभीर होते हैं । याद रखें आप अपने डॉक्टर से जरूर कहें कि आप नियमित शराब पीते हैं या शराबी हैं क्योंकि आपका लीवर शराबग्रस्त होता है और दवा के प्रभाव में अंतर आ सकता है ।

बच्चों की बदमिजाजी

बच्चों की बदमिजाजी

बच्चे बदमिजाज होते हैं । यह बदमिजाजी सामान्य रुदन, जमीन पर लोटने से लेकर जोरों से चीखना, बातें मारना, ऊपर-नीचे कूदना-फाँदना और कभी कभी उत्तेजित व्यवहार तक रह सकती है । बच्चों के इस व्यवहार को अपनी स्वायतत्ता बताना या अभिभावकों से आजादी पाना - ऐसा समझा जा सकता है ।

बच्चों में बदमिजाजी कब होती है :-

  • जब बच्चे नीन्द न होने से या भूख से थक जाते हैं ।
  • अचानक नापसन्द बदलाव और वातावरण जैसे तलाक या मानसिक अनिश्चितता ।
  • बच्चे मौखिक अभिव्यक्ति नहीं कर सकते इसलिए अपनी संवेदनाएँ - बदमिजाजी से दर्शाते हैं ।
  • कई बार इस बदमिजाजी से घर के बड़ों का ध्यान आकर्षित न होता है ।
  • बच्चे जैसे-जैसे बड़े होते हैं वे कुछ आजाद रहना और अपना निर्णय खुद लेना चाहते हैं ।
  • कठिन कामों, जैसे स्कूल में अच्छे अंक न प्राप्त करने अथवा प्रतियोगिता में विफल होने पर, बच्चे निराश होकर बदमिजाजी करने लगते हैं ।
  • कभी उनकी मनचाही चीज जैसे - चॉकलेट, मिठाई न मिलने पर भी बच्चे बदमिजाजी करने लगते हैं ।

इससे कैसे निपटें :-

सबसे महत्वपूर्ण है, बच्चे को उसकी बदमिजाजी की सजा कभी न देवें । सजा के भय से बच्चा अपनी संवेदना प्रकट ही नहीं कर सकता और इसके दुष्पिरणाम हो सकते हैं ।

यदि आपका बच्चा बदमिजाजी कर रहा है तो आप इस पर ध्यान न दें क्योंकि वह आप द्वारा मना करने से विचलित है । आपके द्वारा ध्यान न देने पर बच्चा समझता है कि बदमिजाजी से कोई हल नहीं निकलेगा । कई बच्चे कुछ और करने लगते हैं, इसके परिणाम अच्छे होते हैं ।

आप निराश होने पर भी अपना नियंत्रण न खोयें । क्योंकि आप बच्चों के सताने का उदाहरण प्रस्तुत कर रहे हैं । कभी सजा न देवें और न ही आपा खोकर चीखें । याद रखें, यदि आप अपना नियंत्रण खोते हैं तो दूसरी ओर आपका बच्चा उसे झेल रहा है । और वह बदमिजाजी में भी इसी व्यवहार को सीख रहा है ।

बच्चे की बदमिजाजी रोकने के लिये कभी भी उसे फुसलायें नहीं । इससे उसमें बदमिजाजी बढेगी और वह समझेगा ऐसा करने से उसे कुछ न कुछ तो मिलेगा ।

बदमिजाजी से छुटकारा :

  • बच्चों को तनावपूर्ण स्थिति से दूर रखें और जहाँ ऐसी स्थिति उत्पन्न हो सकती है उससे भी दूर रखें ।
  • यदि आप बदमिजाजी की शुरुआत होती देखें तो बच्चे का ध्यान उसकी पसंद की ओर आकर्षित करें ।
  • बच्चों को बारबार नीन्द आने का ध्यान रखें और देखें कि बच्चों को कई अन्य स्वास्थ्य समस्या तो नहीं हैं ।
  • जब कभी बच्चे भूखे हों तो उन्हें तुरन्त पौष्टिक आहार मिलना चाहिये ।
  • बच्चों को उसकी साधारण पसंद का अवसर देवें । जैसे - नाश्ते में उसे सैण्डविच में अण्डा या सब्जी पसंद है या पहनने के लिये दो जोडी कपडे चाहिये जो कि आपको भी मान्य हो । इस प्रकार बच्चे भी स्वतंत्र महसूस करते हैं ।
  • अधिकांश बच्चों की बदमिजाजी 3-4 साल की उम्र तक कम हो जाती है । यदि आपको लगे कि बच्चे भी बदमिजाजी उसके कोई अन्य भावुकता का परिणाम है तो तुरंत किसी डॉक्टर से सलाह लें ।
  • बच्चे की बदमिजाजी का हल ढूंढने में याद रखें आप उसके गुस्से का हल निकालकर रहे हैं ना कि उसकी गलतियाँ निकाल रहे हैं ।

कुछ महत्वपूर्ण युक्तियाँ ये है -

  • न सजा दें, न ईनाम दें ।
  • शान्त रहें, जहां तक हो सके अवहेलना करें । प्रतिक्रिया करने से बच्चा समझेगा बदमिजाजी अच्छा हथियार है ।
  • बच्चे को सुरक्षित और हो सके तो अकेला रखें ।
  • बच्चों को आपके व्यवहार की निन्दा न करने दें । यह तो केवल आपका बच्चा ही इसका पात्र है ।

घर पर :-

  • जब बच्चा घर पर बदमिजाजी करे तो उसे शान्ति से उसके रूम में अथवा उसके बिस्तर पर अकेले छोड़ देवें ।
  • और फिर रूम बन्द कर उसे अकेले तब तक छोड़ देवें जब तक वह चीखना बन्द न कर दे ।
  • यदि बच्चे को अकेले छोड़ना असुरक्षित लगे, बच्चे की बदमिजाजी की पूरी अवहेलना कर देवें, उससे आँख तक न मिलाएँ ।
  • बच्चा शान्त होने पर उससे बात करें और उसके व्यवहार के बारे में उसे समझायें ।

सार्वजनिक जगहों पर :-

  • यदि बच्चा सार्वजनिक स्थल पर बदमिजाजी करे तो उसे किसी एकान्त जगह ले जायें ।
  • सबसे अच्छी जगह आपकी कार है । बच्चे को वहां ले जायें और बैठा दें । आप कार के बाहर खड़े रहें या कार ही में बैठ जायें, किन्तु बदमिजाजी के प्रति प्रतिक्रिया न करें । बदमिजाजी शान्त होने पर बच्चे से बात करें समझायें और अपनी सामान्य क्रिया में लौट आयें ।
  • यदि आप सार्वजनिक स्थल से हट नहीं सकते तो किसी भी तरीके से स्थिति को सम्भालें और बच्चे की बदमिजाजी की अवहेलना करें ।
  • लोगों की बातों निगाहों की ओर ध्यान न देवें ।
  • आप शान्त रहें ।
  • एक बार जगह से हटने पर बच्चे को उसके व्यवहार के बारे में समझायें ।

बच्चे को समझाना :-

  • बच्चा शान्त होने पर तुरंत उसे समझायें ।
  • बच्चे को पूरी घटना समझायें और बतायें की आपको गुस्सा क्यों आया, आपने पुकारा किया आदि । इस तरीके से बच्चा सारा घटनाक्रम समझेगा ।
  • बदमिजाजी की घटनाओं से बचने का प्रयास करें ।
  • बदमिजाजी सामान्य व्यवहार नहीं है, ऐसा बच्चे को समझायें । बच्चे को साफ समझायें कि अच्छे बच्चे ऐसी हरकत नहीं करते इसका बच्चे पर प्रभाव पड़ेगा और वह बदमिजाजी नहीं करेगा ।
  • बच्चे को बतायें कि बदमिजाजी के बदले वह अपनी भावना आपको कैसे प्रकट कर सकता है । ऐसा अपनी भावना प्रकट करने का सही तरीका समझाएँ ।
  • बच्चे को विश्वास दिलायें की उसे जब भी गुस्सा आये या निराश हो या कोई समस्या हो तो वह सीधे आपसे कह सकता है । आखिर आप उसकी मदद के लिये ही तो है ना ।
  • ऐसा करने से बच्चे जल्दी समझ जाते हैं । याद रखें बच्चे बड़ों से जल्दी समझते हैं ।
  • इस प्रकार का व्यवहार आपको बार-बार करना पड़ेगा । बच्चे की बदमिजाजी सुधारने में समय लगता है ।

What is Halitosis or Bad Breath?
• Halitosis is an offensive odour from an individual’s mouth as he/she speaks or yawns. It may occur temporarily or may be a chronic problem.
• Bad breath is often viewed as a sign of poor hygiene and can be a very embarrassing situation, if it is obviously being noticed by people standing close to the person.
• It usually indicates some ongoing infective activity in varying extents, as nobody gets bad breath without a reason. Infact it can be treated quite easily, and not only does it give a fresh, clean feel to the individual, it also protects from recurrent throat and oro-dental infections.
What causes Halitosis?
As mentioned above, bad breath usually occurs as a reaction to a source of infection. It happens whenever there is any residual food in the oral cavity sticking to the teeth or gums, or in cases of dryness of the mouth where the protective action of the saliva in clearing the germs from the mouth is reduced. This is why, people normally have bad breath in the morning, as overnight the saliva production is reduced, and people often also sleep with an open mouth, increasing dryness, and thus waking up with bad breath. Other important reasons for bad breath throughout the day include:Poor dental health: Having plaque over the teeth, dental caries, or infection at the base of the tooth, especially involving the gums, with swelling and pus collection in the gums is the most common cause of bad breath.Respiratory tract infections: Sore throat, bacterial rhinitis and sinusitis, with yellowish-green nasal discharge, and swollen lymph nodes (swollen glands) in the neck, are other important causes of bad breath.Cigarette smoking: This is a common self-induced cause of bad breath, and the offensive smell of cigarette is not even masked well with mints, etc resulting in a typical unpleasant odour, that can’t be missed.
General body illnesses: Some organ diseases are also known to cause typical mouth odours, which can be important indicators to the disease, such as liver disease, chronic kidney failure, diabetes, or chronic lung disease.
How can Bad Breath be prevented or treated?
Bad breath can be treated and prevented by ensuring good oral hygiene as well as treating any other sources of infection that may be present.
• In addition to daily morning brushing the following tips can be helpful:
• Brushing twice a day and rinsing the mouth after every mea
l• Flossing should be made a daily habit• Those having a tendency towards dry mouth should make it a habit to munch on fresh vegetables like salads, and can intermittently chew on sugar free gums or mints.
• Using a good quality mouthwash at regular intervals can also help.
• A regular dental check-up at least twice a year, even in the absence of any symptoms is recommended, to get them cleaned and detect any caries or cavities early.
• However, if these basic remedies do not resolve bad breath it is important to get a general health check-up done to rule out any likely serious bodily disorders. The new, modern point of view on teeth and its protection:
• Teeth, saliva and chewing are absolutely critical in pulping up the food we eat. Infact digestion starts in the mouth itself and if the food is not chewed thoroughly before swallowing, it takes longer to digest it, and often the tougher foods like corn, peas, chick peas (chana), kidney beans (rajma), legumes, which are rich in bodily proteins are passed unutilized in our stools.
• As you grow older, your food intake will reduce. Add to it bad teeth/ rotting teeth removed from your jaws, leaving you with few teeth to chew you food with. You will naturally tend to swallow food instead of chewing it in later years, and thus food absorption is severely decreased, weakening you body and the immune system from fighting diseases.
• It is thus crucial to understand that unlike what our parents and grandparent did, we should not leave tooth and gum problems unattended, or attend to it with ineffective home remedies. It is increasingly being realized how crucial good teeth are in maintaining general health. Contrary to olden day practices of removing spoiling teeth, dentists now suggest that teeth need to be preserved at all costs even after they start to decay. The latest technology includes means to clean and cap tooth cavities, perform root canal surgeries to correct decay and prevent it from spreading to other teeth.
