In this video we listen to the heart of a patient who has a diagnosis of diastolic dysfunction and a heart murmur.
WHAT IS DIASTOLIC DYSFUNCTION?
Diastolic dysfunction occurs when the left ventricle gets stiffer and is not able to accept blood return in a normal fashion. It can lead to high blood pressure and even heart failure thus requiring regular monitoring and management.
This lovely patient also has a heart murmur that you can clearly hear with the stethoscope. We take a listen to her heart at rest and during exercise.
It’s the smallest handheld stethoscope I have come across. Once paired to your mobile device, it allows you to take a listen to the sounds of the body in real-time with unlimited recording.
The best feature about the Stemoscope is the ability to listen to the heart in real-time. This proves to be great for educational purposes, for example, if you are a medical student, a nurse or simply someone who is intrigued about the sounds of the body.
Let me know what you think about the sound quality. Is sound A or B better?
With temperatures hotting up and public holidays in sight, what better way to spend the summer outside by the beach, catching up with a few friends over a barbie or getting your adrenaline fix at the theme parks.
Just remember whilst we have this glorious weather, the UV index is at an all time high with average readings over 10. Exposure to such high levels can lead to ageing of the skin, which means wrinkles, but more importantly it increases your chance of developing nasty skin cancer. So this summer, stay sun smart and regularly apply sunblock at least spf 30+ as well as popping on a hat, sunnies and protective clothing.
Being a non-surgical injectables trainer puts me in a privileged position to seriously advocate the risks involved and the safest methods of injecting.
Over the course of a weekend, doctors, dentists and nurses are taught the importance of safe injecting techniques whilst performing cosmetic injectables. We covered how to avoid possible complications and how to deal with them in clinical practice should they occur, keeping you all in safe hands.
Helping to contribute to a new generation of safe cosmetic injectable physicians.
It’s always a pleasure working alongside the fantastic team @dermamedical and I wish the delegates the very best of luck for their future cosmetic careers.
One of the most rewarding aspects of being a GP is being able to follow someone’s life journey.
