IABP .... To Save The Unfortunate..

I had received few phone calls from friends and colleagues encouraging me to update my blog...wow..i have no idea that they had visited mine so often. and enjoyed every single entry i've posted here .thanks again..I am honoured..
The reason .. yeah... i was quite busy the last 3 days.... seeing patient , clinics and so on and on. I am looking for the weekend to pamper myself, hit the gym again and hang out with friends. At least over the weekend, it is time to recharge myself and do something out from the medical world for a short while..
The pictures below were taken by my new Diamond HTC....3.2 megapixels....and the quality was surprisingly not bad at all. I took the pictures after finishing a procedure that i considered a life-saving for one of the unfortunate patient i had encountered last night.
Our Cath lab in HUKM are being upgraded..hence there will be no angiogram procedure done until we re-open probably in September. So far, IJN and Serdang Hospital (cardiology centre) accepted our ill patients for urgent angiogram and their co-operation was very much appreciated. Last night we tried to send to them for urgent angiogram which was a rescue to this unfortunate but IJN and Serdang had overflow of patient.
This procedure known as Intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) help to restore the mean pressure from a failing heart secondary to massive heart attack.. I had the chance to insert this apparatus with the guidance from my consultant cardiologist. The team work was awesome.. i salute to my team..Similar cases like this ,,, we usually send straight to cath lab but we had to manage the best that we could at this situation.. The set is very expensive..up to a month of my salary...mmmmm
To all readers... love your heart... protect them starting from today.. eat healthy, stop smoking, ..

Emotionally abused also can cause other sickness doc.. aren't u agreed? lagi parah..boleh jadi giler kot.. hahaha. Even a single cell dlm brain kalau damage mana bleh ganti kan? (memandai je aku.. hahah ) kalau physical abused kita boleh buat heart transplant lagi.. :D

as a full time committed & staunch smoker satu kotak satu hari, I disagree... hehe... kalau ati dah tutup, amende tak nampak, tak nampak rahmat Ilahi & keindahan duniawi... boleh? hehe... this argument can pakai one you know... hehe....

ok, ok... better if heart is not abused at all, emotionally or physically...

Ekin : amboi senangnya buat heart transplant.... susah Ekin kena cari donor lagi dan usually it involves both heart and lung transplant sebab selalunya lung pun dah ada effect due to failing heart..

Kembara Musafir : Mungkin u should try Champrix... medication baru untuk stop smoking.. baru launch.. try to quit for your loved one at least.. he he...
Emotionally abused heart a bit ok at least u can recover when you meet someone new to gain back everyhting you've lost...but physically abused heart is progressive thing that you have to risk your life.....

Putubambu : he he... Putubambu.. makan tak pe....tapi eat healthy tu yang penting... Blogger tu semua ambil gambar jer lebih pasal makanan tu tapi dia orang cautious tau.....jaga badan.. he he
