BACKGROUND South Asians who have settled overseas and those in urban India have an increased risk of ischaemic heart disease (IHD). Reasons for this increased risk are unclear. Most studies have been based on migrants to western nations, so their findings may not apply to most south Asians, who live in their own countries. Therefore, we assessed the(More)
There is sparse data on the treatment practices being followed for acute myocardial infarction at various hospitals that differ in their financial infrastructure, availability of facilities and attachment to a medical college. In this prospective observational study, we evaluated the treatment practices for acute myocardial infarction, its appropriateness(More)
The role of music in increasing the exercise performance is well recognised. There is very little information about effect of music on time taken for post exercise recovery. We examined the effect of music and different musical tempo on post exercise recovery time, following treadmill work. 30 volunteers (15 male, 15 female) subjected to isotonic exercise(More)
OBJECTIVES Time is of prime importance in the management of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Time to hospital admission should be minimised for maximum thrombolytic benefit. The present paper has evaluated some socio-demographic factors influencing pre hospital delay. METHODS This prospective observational study of 1,072 patients with AMI admitted to 14(More)
Talon cusp (TC) is a relatively uncommon developmental anomaly characterized by cusp-like projections from the cemento-enamel junction to a variable distance toward the incisal edge of an anterior tooth. It usually presents on palatal/lingual surface of the anterior teeth. Studies have revealed that it consists of enamel, dentine and a variable amount of(More)
Modern radars have become increasingly more complex and less tractable for mathematical analysis. So simulation is an obvious prerequisite if the radar is set to operate in hostile scenarios. The very commonly used and well established base band equivalent model for radar clutter is a complex Gaussian process, which implies that Chi-Square for power, or(More)
Professional appearance of a pediatrician is an important element affecting the perception of competence of the doctor among patients and their parents/guardians, thus influencing their compliance. As there is no study on this issue addressing the Indian scene, we requested responses to a questionnaire containing 15 questions from the parents/guardians of(More)
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of vocal and instrumental music on various physiological parameters during submaximal exercise. Each subject underwent three sessions of exercise protocol without music, with vocal music, and instrumental versions of same piece of music. The protocol consisted of 10 min treadmill exercise at 70% HR(max)(More)
The present study was undertaken to find out the effect of surgical stress on nonspecific immune response. Twenty patients posted for various elective surgeries participated in the study (male : 17, female : 3, age : 43.4 +/- 2 yrs). The blood samples were taken preoperatively (4 to 6 days prior to surgery) and the following parameters were assessed:(More)
