Are you a nurse or a midwife?

This World Health Day is dedicated to celebrating the work of nurses and midwives around the world. 🌏

Throughout my career nurses and midwives have always played an integral part to looking after patients. Not only do they look after patients but they also look after us doctors too! Back when I was a junior doctor I had some fond memories of being bleeped by the nurses on a night shift to attend to patients and after seeing the patients, the friendly nursing staff would always offer me a cup of tea and a biscuit.

Thank you for your ongoing high quality of care and respect that you provide us all.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

The FUTURE of Surgery - Hair Transplants by AI Robot Surgeon ARTAS

Using artificial intelligence technology, the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System claims to be able to precisely harvest and implant hair to areas with hair loss quicker than traditional methods with minimal physician input. I take a look and see how it works in action.

HAIR LOSS

Hair loss and thinning can affect both genders, it is estimated that more than 50% of women will experience noticeable hair loss and up tp 95% of men will experience thinning of the hair due to male pattern baldness.

There may also be a number of medical causes of hair loss and thinning and this must always be investigated by your local doctor as such conditions require treatment before embarking on any hair restoration programs.

Hair restoration is only successful if the patient has existing hair as the graft needs to be taken from here. It is useful for those who have localised hair loss, which could have arisen from cancer treatment or age.

MANUAL HAIR RESTORATION

Traditionally, hair restoration is performed manually by a team of highly trained physicians. It involves extracting a follicle from the skin (which contains hair), from a donor site on the patients’ scalp. These follicles are then assessed to check for viability and manually re-implanted into the area of concern. The whole process can take anything from 8 hours to 14 hours.

ARTAS

The ARTAS robotic device uses AI technology to map the scalp and has a set of pre programmed options for typical baldness patterns, this can also be individualise accordingly. The extraction of the hair follicles is performed by the robot and roughly takes around 2.5 hours. The harvest is inspected to assess viability by the team and if a certain graft has more than one hair, this can be split for implantation. Re-implantation of the hair also takes around 2.5 hours. The technology in the device ensures that the areas that have been harvested do not have an uneven appearance or patchy outcome, the same is also true for re-implantation.

Wuhan Coronavirus - What You Should Know & How Doctors Protect Themselves

With 4 confirmed cases of the novel virus at present in Australia, measures are being taken to help stop the propagation of the virus.

In today’s episode of Dr Nora I talk to you about my battle of finding protective measures to protect myself and my patients.

It is thought that the virus may be transmitted through airborne droplets from sneezing or coughing and it is felt that the P2/N95 mask may offer some protection. As a health care practitioner seeing around 50 patients a day it is my utmost priority to look after my patients and ensure that they are safe. After work I rushed over to my local hardware store and enquired about the mask. Unfortunately, they and all of their other franchises had run out and the only ones left were darth-Vader-esq masks.

After much deliberation I got over the aesthetics and remembered the purpose and brought one. As I drove away I thought I would call local pharmacies to check their stocks. After calling 20 different pharmacies over a span of 60km I was met with the same response ‘sorry we’re out of stock’.

Rather fortunately I drove past the hospital and thought perhaps I could ask my colleagues there and explain the situation. After speaking with the staff in ED they kindly gave me a mask for myself and my staff.

WHAT IS WUHAN CORONAVIRUS?

Wuhan is a city in China where the virus originated from. It is not fully understood how the virus is transmitted but it is believe that it originated in a live seafood market and has so far affected over 1000 people in China with around 40 people dying. It is believed that this who have died from the virus have had underlying medical conditions.

Australia has received its first confirmed case this weekend and to date there are 4 cases in two states, NSW and QLD.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?

The virus causes symptoms pneumonia, including, fever, cough, shortness of breath and feeling unwell and tired. It is believed that there is an incubation period of around 14 days which means that someone may not know they have the virus immediately.

WHO IS AT RISK?

Those who have travelled to Wuhan or those who have close contacts with someone who has recently travelled or has a confirmed case.

HOW DO I PROTECT MYSELF?

Usual hygiene measures are crucial such as regular hand washing. It has currently not been recommended for the general public to use a mask outside of the health care setting.

WHERE TO BUY P2 MASKS?

eBay: https://vtudio.com/a/?e=p2+mask

I THINK I HAVE WUHAN WHAT SHOULD I DO?

If you have a suspicion you may be affected as perhaps you’ve recently travelled from there or know a close contact. You should maintain isolation and seek medical help. It is imperative that before you go to a doctor or the ED you must call ahead so that protective measures may be taken. You will need to be in isolation to protect others around you and hence stop the propagation of this virus.

Tests can be performed to confirm the virus and treatment may be initiated. The virus is new and not much information has been released. Scientists are working on a vaccination though this can take time.

Together with your help we can stop the propagation of the virus.
