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.
Always consult your physician before beginning any exercise program. If you experience any symptoms of weakness, unsteadiness, light-headedness or dizziness, chest pain or pressure, nausea, or shortness of breath, stop exercising and seek immediate help.
As I travelled back from Sydney this weekend I lost count of how many coughs, sneezes and sniffles I heard.
Respiratory viral infections are spread by aerosol transmission - coughing, sneezing or even talking. They will mostly get better alone with good old fashioned TLC. If you are unwell consider staying home so that the virus doesn’t spread to others and no doubt your workmates will also be happy that they won’t get sick too.
Strict hygiene is important if you are sick, sneezing into a tissue, throwing away used tissues and washing hands regularly are a must.
If you’re symptoms aren’t settling, have any concerns or if you even need a sick note pop down and see me in clinic.
Let’s all do our part to prevent transmission of the common cold.💪 Take care and stay healthy 😘
In this episode I take you on my journey of working as a GP in rural Australia. For the next two weeks I’ll be working from the tropical paradise of the Whitsundays. I share with you some interesting differences between working in a rural town versus working in a metropolitan city and the type of cases that I’ve been presented with.
The 74 Whitsunday Islands lie between the northeast coast of Queensland, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef, a massive stretch of coral teeming with marine life. Most of the islands are uninhabited. They’re characterised by dense rainforest, hiking trails and white sand beaches. The town of Airlie Beach on the mainland is the region’s central hub.
