My experience in the hospital

I was recently in one of the hospitals of my city to do some practice (of course I just watched the doctors, talked with patients and took some notes because I couldn’t touch anything).

It was an interesting experience , but I was a little disappointed about the way some nurses and doctors treated the patients, in special the poor patients.As a future doctor I think it is normal to do everything you could do to help the patient and it doesn’t matter if he/she is rich or poor, well there it wasn’t like that..Doctors (in special the residents) were walking around the hospital, without doing anything, while the poor patients needed their help because they didn’t feel good.I was the only one that asked the patients how they were feeling.One of them had a really bad headache , so I went to call a neurologist to consult him because everyone there ignored him. Why? He was poor that’s why.He had an aneurysm but fortunately it was discovered in time.I felt really good and I was proud of myself that I could help that person.

Another thing that I didn’t like was that even if you get the chance to be consulted,the doctors or nurses talk with you like you better go home and die there because they don’t care anyway. I understand that doctors and nurses are really stressed because it’s not easy to do what they are doing but let’s be serious , you chose this career , you wanted to help people and now you are treating them like sh*t ? Then why do you continue to be a doctor or nurse? Just for money? Well medicine is not about the money you take it’s about the things you do to help this world. In many hospitals is like God is playing poker with the Dead so if the patient is lucky enough he can live if no..he dies.

I really hope that the future doctors and nurses to be the way they should be ,to really care about this career and to treat patients the way they should be treated.

Well this is all for now ! Hope you enjoyed it 😁

Inoperable Brain Tumor

Hi guys,I’mĀ gonna present you one of the worse andĀ quite interesting(in my opinion) inoperable tumor that you may know or may notĀ know about.Also I will try to select for you the important things from this tumor so you will can understand it better.Enjoy the blog šŸ™‚

Ā  Ā  Ā  Ā Inoperable Brain Tumor

Brain tumors in general can’t be categorized as operable or inoperable. They can be any type or size where the only difference that can affect and categorize the tumor is the location . If it’s entangled with blood vessels or any critical brain area it has to be seriously considered if the pacient’s life is at risk.
Surgeons will be the ones toĀ consider what part of the tumor to remove and if it can be removed in the first place. It has to be examined so they can have a conclusion if it can remove the entire tumor or just a part of it. Removing just a part of it is indeed not a permanent solution though and since there’s a remaining part around there, the tissues that remain after the surgery can multiply which is why it’s recommended to remove the entire tumor as long as it’s safe and won’t have any problems in the future.

I recommendĀ toĀ the patient to visit more that just one surgeon before accepting that the tumor is inoperable because sometimesĀ a tumor that one surgeon believe is inoperable may seem treatable to another.Good surgeons make the difference.

A good example isĀ Laura Fischer-Beards, who wasĀ diagnosed with inoperable brain tumor.Doctors gave her just months to live but she didn’t give up.She went to US and there made a procedure called “awake craniotomy with mapping”Ā . It was successful and removed 100% of the tumor , now Laura can live a normal life near her family.So never give up ,keep fighting.

AWAKE CRANIOTOMY PROCEDURE

In this procedure ,the patient is sedated while theĀ surgeon opens the skull to expose the brain.The patient is then brought out of sedation to full consciousness(it means that the patient is awake and you can talk with him/her normally ,the neurosurgeonĀ will put the patient to ask some question and to perform some simple tasks to make sure thatĀ the functions remain intact).During the surgery, the neurosurgeon performs cortical mapping(itĀ is an invasive procedure in which electrical stimulation is applied briefly to the cortical surface for the purpose of identifying areas critical for sensory, motor or language function) ,alsoĀ the patient will feel no pain.
