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 HEART probably better than PHYSICALLY ABUSED HEART...mmmmm.. Any comment ???
