Male Circumcision + 3D Animation

Circumcision Video 3D


Radiographic Atlas of Skull and Brain Anatomy

The book is very innovative, offering a detailed, original representation of normal anatomy of the skull and brain with more than 892 figures in black and white and colours. Plan X Ray, high resolution CT and MRI cuts on conventional planes are collected together with tridimensional reformatted images and with functional studies. Brain, skull, ear, orbit and vascular anatomy are treated in the same book, following systematic designs rather than technique dependent representations. High qualityimages are supported with extreme care in detail labeling and with colour drawings and schemes.

Gynaecology by Ten Teachers

"Gynaecology by Ten Teachers is a clear favourite for those studying the subject."

The 18th Edition of this classic, world renowned textbook, which together with Ten Teachers in Obstetrics, provides comprehensive coverage of this important specialty for undergraduates and beyond. With Ash Monga now as leading Editor, and a largely new team of contributing authors, this new edition builds on the book's strengths, combining authoritative detail with a clear guide to essential knowledge, while incorporating the latest advances in the field. Great care will be taken to ensure structure, style and level of detail are consistent across both volumes providing the reassurance students require that they need go no further than this text. Where appropriate, chapters will be structured according to a consistent format (Overview, Definition, Prevalence, Etiology, Clinical features, Differential diagnosis, Investigations, Treatment, Key points, New developments, references), and illustrative case histories with 'Discussion points' will be provided throughout. In line with new curricula biomedical science underpinnings will be integrated within clinically orientated chapters.

Kochar's Clinical Medicine 5th edition

Description : The acquisition of knowledge is essential to creating diagnostic hypotheses and achieving a solution to the patient's clinical problem. With that in mind, we have developed the 5th edition of Kochar's ClinicalMedicine for Students to link theoretical information more closely to the practice of medicine. Although direct patient experience is an irreplaceable way to develop the practice of medicine and patient care, theoretical knowledge is still an essential component of the learning process. Formal knowledge, which can be acquired from a book, serves as the basis for the application of knowledge in the context of the clinical practice, allowing the student to continuously learn from their experiences.

Medical Schools in USA

There are quite a good number of Medical Schools in USA that offer excellent training methods and internship programs.

The way of training medical professionals in USA is very different from that of other countries as one needs to have good percentage at the undergraduate level to get admission to a prestigious Medical College in USA.

Scope of Medical Courses in USA:
The field of Medicine is very vast and you need to be very specific about the sub-field in which you want to pursue your career. There are so many respected medical professions to choose from such as Radiologist, Gynecologist, Anesthesiologist, Orthopedic, Pediatrician, Cardiologist, Pathologist, Oncologist, or a Surgeon. Medical Schools in USA will give you an opportunity to work as a Doctor or a Medical Researcher in Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Rehabilitation Centers, Correctional Facilities, and at various other Federal or Government Health Departments.

Eligibility Criteria in the Medical Colleges of USA:
To qualify for any of the prestigious Medical Schools in USA you will have to score a pretty good percentage at your undergraduate degree. There are certain entrance examinations that are conducted for admitting students to the pre-medical courses in such Universities. After clearing these exams you have to spend nearly four years in a medical school, which is then followed by 3 to 8 years of Internship and Specialization that is determined by your preferences.

Prominent Medical Schools in USA:
The Medical Schools of USA are well known for their superb curriculum and systematic teaching methods. These Medical Colleges and Universities will equip you with both theoretical and practical knowledge that you may later use to develop a flourishing medical career. Surviving in any medical school requires thorough devotion and diligence. A list of some of the best Medical Schools in USA is given below-

  • University of Washington
  • University of California San Francisco
  • Oregon Health & Science University
  • University of Minnesota Duluth
  • University of California San Diego
  • University of Wisconsin Madison
  • University of New Mexico
  • University of Iowa
  • University of Rochester


Assessment of severity of acute asthma in children

Initial assessment of the severity of asthma is necessary before treatment is initiated. Once the appropriate level of care is achieved, certain additional points obtained from the history are useful, like: duration of attack, degree of exacerbation and triggers which cause exacerbation, such as specific allergens or respiratory tract infections.
The longer the attack, the more likely it is that recovery will be prolonged and that more intense therapy is required. Medications used previously should be identified, particularly, the use of inhalational or systemic glucocorticosteroids. The patient may be at risk for severe asthma requiring prolonged and intensive treatment if there is a history of previous hospitalizations, frequent emergency room visits, chronic inhalational or systemic corticosteroid use or recent withdrawal from systemic steroids, and a history of intensive care unit management, with or without mechanical ventilation. Psychosocial problems, particularly in teenagers, are a risk factor for sudden death.

Outpatient Assessment and Management of Acute Asthma

Acute exacerbations of asthma in children and emergency department management. Most acutely severe exacerbations of asthma require an extensive course of therapy in a well-equipped physician's office or the emergency department. PEF % baseline refers to the norm for the individual, established by the clinician. This may be percentage predicted based on standardized norms or the patient's personal best.

Many clinical scoring systems using salient clinical findings are available for children with acute asthma. These scoring systems are useful since they can be accessed instantaneously and can be recorded onto flow-sheets used for serial evaluation of the patient's asthma, severity, and response to therapy.for example,a scoring system at the Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok to evaluate children with asthma exacerbations. This scoring system was validated and was also found useful for monitoring efficacy of treatment, thus improving communication among physicians and other healthcare professionals caring for these acutely ill patients.
The score includes 6 items (RR, wheezing, chest retraction, dyspnea and oxygen saturation). Each item is scored at the time of assessment (0-2). All scores are summed to give total score (maximum 10).
