Which Stethoscope to Buy and Why | A Doctor’s Perspective

They may be a cool fashion statement but stethoscopes have many uses aside from being a physicians right of passage. In today’s episode of Dr Nora, I share with you which stethoscope I used during medical school, GP training and which I use today. I’ll also be going through the pros and cons of the different models as well as sharing with you a few stories from my medical school days.

Sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose? 🤧

Well you’re not alone. 20% of the Australian population suffer from seasonal allergic rhinitis also known as hayfever.

A lot of patients will self medicate with over the counter medications but did you know only 85% of people make the right choice?

Symptoms can be managed effectively with either an antihistamine, nasal sprays, nasal rinses or a combination. Be sure to avoid any triggers such as pollen which in Queensland can be all year round but reaches its peak from January to March. For patients who have severe or prolonged symptoms more specialist treatment will be advised.

If you are affected with symptoms and need help with managing come by and see me in clinic.

Did you know that type 2 diabetes can be potentially reversed?

When my patients stick to a strict healthy balanced diet and exercise program I’ve seen them naturally lower their sugar levels to a point where some of them no longer require the need for medication.

As you can imagine this is life changing and you can hopefully do the same too. Just always remember to stay on your medications, unless otherwise instructed by your medical practitioner.

For help and advice on how to do this or if you have any questions, feel free to pop by and see me in clinic.

Are you taking your pumps correctly?

Asthma affects around 2.5 million Australians - that’s 1 in every 9, and a common reason for poor control is inhaler technique.

As part of asthma week I want to make sure that all asthmatics have an up to date action plan in place. This ensures that you and others around you know what to do if your asthma worsens. So I’ll be giving you the opportunity to pop by and check your inhaler technique to make sure your getting the most out of your medication.

If you haven’t been diagnosed with asthma but have symptoms, such as breathlessness, wheezing, cough or a feeling of tightness in the chest worse in cold weather then come and see me for an examination. With the correct inhalers, asthma is easily controlled. Left alone asthma can be life threatening so it’s important that if you do have asthma you have regular check ups.

How much do you know about the medicine you are taking? 💊

If the answer is very little then it’s time to get Medicine Wise!

This week is all about raising awareness of the medicines you and your family could be taking.

If medicines are not used correctly, serious issues can occur, in fact did you know that each year 230,000 Australians are hospitalised with problems by their medicines?

Medicines can either be prescribed or be brought over the counter. It is vital that you have an understanding of why you are on each medicine, how to take them properly and what potential side effects they could have. It is also important that your medications are reviewed regularly by your doctor to ensure that are still needed.

So next time your getting a script make sure you’ve got all information you need.

If you have any concerns or questions please pop by and see me in clinic.
