Some Heart Sounds

A diastolic murmur is heard best over the aorta in insufficiency, or openness of the aortic valves.

A systolic murmur of pulmonary valves is heard best at second and third intercostal space. Left side of sternum indicates valvular insufficiency.

A presystolic murmur at apex is mitral and the cause is obstruction. Its character is rasping.

To differentiate a pleuritic friction sound from a heart murmur, remember that the pleuritic sound occurs with the respiration and is absent when the patient suspends respiration.

A systolic murmur heard loudest at the apex is due to mitral regurgitation.

Systolic murmur heard loudest over the ensiform cartilage is diagnostic of tricuspid regurgitation.

A harsh systolic murmur heard at second intercostal space, right side, close to sternum tells of aortic stenosis or in other words constriction of the aortic opening.

When the pulse is like shot it signifies regurgitation at the aortic opening.

An increase of first sound over the ensiform cartilage denotes pulmonary obstruction.

Elon Musk’s Starlink Project

The Starlink satellites are brought into position at an altitude of only around 500 kilometers, in “Low Earth Orbit” (LEO). Because of the comparatively strong gravity there, the missiles gradually descend until they burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere after five to seven years. In contrast to stony meteorites, metal, especially aluminum, is released and converted into aluminum oxide by combustion. Scientists fear that this could permanently change the chemistry of the upper atmosphere and cause sunlight to be refracted and scattered differently – with incalculable consequences for the global climate.

Bangladesh -Homeopaths can’t use “doctor” title

The High Court on Saturday ruled that people with homoeopathic and Unani degrees cannot use “Doctor” as a title before their names. They may use Integrated Physician, Complementary Physician, Integrated Medicine Practitioner and Alternative Medical Practitioner. They ruled that as per the Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC) Act 2010, no one other than a person holding an MBBS or BDS degree from a registered institution can use the doctor title in their names.

Some Tips from E.A. Farrington, MD

Ambra grisea

Ambra is particularly indicated in thin, spare men, who have a decidedly nervous temperament, in whom nervousness predominates at the expense of nutrition. It is particularly indicated for the nervous complaints of old people, especially when they are forgetful and cannot remember the simplest fact.

Aranea

Aranea also attacks the bones.  It is especially indicated in disease of the os calcis, when the patient complains of violent, dull boring pain in that bone. Sometimes there is a sensation as if the bones felt like ice.

Peritonitis

In peritonitis, Lachesis is indicated late when the fever still continues and is worse after 1p.m. and at night.  The slightest touch to the surface of the body is intolerable.

Cannabis

In renal disease, Cannabis is indicated when uraemia sets in, attended by  severe  headache, with a  sensation as  if the vertex was opening and  shutting.

Petroselinum

Petroselinum, is indicated by frequent, sudden and irresistible urging to urinate.   In the case of a child, it will be suddenly seized with the desire to urinate.  If he cannot be gratified immediately, he will jump up and down with pain.

Apocynum Cannabinum

Apocynum Cannabinum is used for general dropsies, swelling of any part

of the body, ascites, hydrothorax, etc., usually without any organic disease as a cause.   The patient cannot tolerate any food.  Food or water is immediately ejected.

Actea racemosa

Actea produces a delirium, with hallucinations of rats, etc. It develops an overwhelming apprehensiveness, with no apparent cause, but which cannot be overcome, reducing the patient to despair.

Conium

Conium weakens the heart, causing the pulse to be one moment full and regular and the next soft, weak, and irregular.  This symptom is a uncommon indication for Conium in aged people.
