It’s not just a consult 📞

As a general practitioner, a lot of collaboration with other health professionals goes on behind the scenes. From speaking to the local pharmacist about which is the best medication to offer you, to speaking with hospital specialists about referrals and management plans.

Whilst it can be time consuming on a busy day, I believe it is an important part of the job to provide you with the most comprehensive medical care helping you to achieve your health goals.

With an increasing number of 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.

WHAT IS THE NOVEL 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 many people in China and currently has a mortality rate of 2%. 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.

I THINK I HAVE CORONAVIRUS 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.

Are you due a medication review? 💊

If you are on prescribed medication long term, it is important that these are checked regularly by your doctor to make sure you are on the correct dose and they are still working for you.

Some medications require regular blood test monitoring to ensure that there have been no unwanted effects on the body.

If you are unsure about your last medication review or have any questions please pop by and see me in clinic.

Ever walked into a chemist and felt overwhelmed by all of the different medicines and vitamins? This week is all about being Medicine Wise. 💊

Whether you’re taking prescribed medication or over the counter supplements it’s time to question what they are for, how you are taking them and what potential side effects they have. If medicines are not used correctly, serious issues can occur. Each year 230,000 Australians are hospitalised with problems by their medicines. It is vital that your medications are reviewed regularly by your doctor to ensure they are still needed.

So next time your getting a script make sure you’ve got all your information. If you have any concerns or questions please pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

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.
