<![CDATA[Dr J S Rajkumar revives a surgeon from cardiac arrest in air]]>Wed, 29 Jul 2015 10:19:52 GMThttp://drjsrajkumarreviews.weebly.com/-dr-j-s-rajkumar-reviews/dr-j-s-rajkumar-revives-a-surgeon-from-cardiac-arrest-in-airA doctor’s skills can be put to test anywhere and not just in an operation theatre or an examination room. This means that a good doctor is the one who does not rely on the equipments to save lives all the times. The knowledge and confidence are sufficient enough to bring relief to the patients. Dr J S Rajkumar, Chairman, Lifeline Hospitals encountered such a situation where his skills were put to test and he proved his mettle. He saved a fellow passenger’s life on board a flight, without any medical equipment but with sheer talent.

Prakash, a 46 year old surgeon was lucky for having boarded the same flight as Dr. J S Rajkumar’s. That’s because the latter has saved the former’s life in a way that is nothing short of a miracle. Dr J S Rajkumar, was travelling from Kolkata to Chennai after delivering a guest lecture. Coincidentally, Prakash was also travelling in the same flight with his wife. About half an hour after the filght took off, the passengers witnessed a panic situation. Prakash’s wife realized that her husband was having trouble breathing. He was gasping for air. He had suffered a cardiac arrest on the flight. His wife called for help and much to her fortune, Dr J S Rajkumar rushed to the situation to rescue the harrowing patient.

Dr Rajkumar quickly realized that the 46 year old surgeon was losing out on his pulse and needed to be resuscitated. His first response was to grab the first aid kit available on the flight but much to his dismay, the kit proved out to be useless. The kit lacked endo-tracheal tubes that could help Prakash breathe. By this time, the patient had lost pulse and his temperature was dropping. The flight did not have any defibrillators to revive the patient by restarting the stopped heart. Even a mouth to mouth resuscitation could not help. Then, Dr. Rajkumar completely relied on his instincts and started punding on the victim’s chest, putting pressure on the heart. He made several pushes on the chest but just as Dr. J S Rajkumar was about to lose hope, Prakash miraculously revived.

He was keenly observed by the doctor and the situation turned out to be a cardiac arrhythmia. Dr J S Rajkumar understood that although the attack was severe, there was hardly any chance that it would happen again. As the flight landed in Chennai, Prakash was straight away taken to the nearby hospital.

S Rajkumar uses Google Glass in his surgery at Lifeline Hospitals]]>Wed, 22 Jul 2015 05:21:55 GMThttp://drjsrajkumarreviews.weebly.com/-dr-j-s-rajkumar-reviews/dr-j-s-rajkumar-uses-google-glass-in-his-surgery-at-lifeline-hospitalsDr. J S Rajkumar, Chairman, Lifeline Hospitals, always likes to stay acquainted with the latest developments in technology. His inclination towards technology has found its way to be used in his hospital as well. Lifeline Hospital houses the latest equipments and gadgets used in medical science. And now Dr. J S Rajkumar has incorporated something absolutely fascinating and revolutionary- Using a Google Glass in a surgery.

The world is dominated by technology. Technology has offered a myriad of benefits in various sectors but there is one sector that has received a great fillip through the use of technology-The healthcare sector.  Technology has revolutionized the healthcare domain. The treatments that seemed impossible a few decades ago have now become a reality, all thanks to the developments in technology. Millions of lives are saved every month across the world, thousands of students are trained every year; all through an extensive use of technology. And the advent of Google Glass has paved in a way for an entirely new experience.

The benefits that a Google Glass offers during a surgery are incredible. It broadcasts the surgery for the people outside the operation theatre. This broadcast can be seen by people in various parts of the world in the real time. This simply means that thousands of students will be able to see the surgery broadcast by the Google Glass and learn intricacies of the surgery. This connectivity is certainly avant-garde and is highly beneficial.

But what if I were to tell you the book being talked about here has got nothing to do with medical science as its subject.

<![CDATA[108 kg woman trims her weight through surgery]]>Wed, 01 Jul 2015 07:13:53 GMThttp://drjsrajkumarreviews.weebly.com/-dr-j-s-rajkumar-reviews/108-kg-woman-trims-her-weight-through-surgeryMedical experts say that the epidemic of the 21st century is obesity. The changes which have come in our lifestyles and dietary habits have led us to this disease and this disease further leads us to innumerable illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, joint disorders, early onset of bone diseases, and other metabolic diseases. But another hallmark of the 21st century is its advancement of medical sciences, believes Dr JS Rajkumar. From kidney transplant to surgical removal of obesity, everything has become possible now.

Recently, a “high-end laparoscopic surgery and bariatric surgery” was performed by surgeons on a woman whose body mass index (BMI) was more than 40 and weight was 108 kg. The surgery was performed by Dr. JS Rajkumar and Dr SP Ilango at AUM hospital, Puducherry.

Dr JS Rajkumar believes that the bariatric surgery of the woman is a permanent removal of weight. The woman went through ‘sleeve gastrectomy’, as revealed by Dr JS Rajkumar and Dr SP Ilango. AUM hospital is a multi-specialty private hospital which has introduced high end laparoscopic and bariatric surgery for the first time. Laparoscopic surgery stands in opposition to cosmetic surgery and is much better.

My sister is overweight by birth. In the school days, she used to play basketball in school though being overweight.  She manages to keep balance between her studies and physical activity as it is essential for him to indulge in physical activity to keep her weight in check.

He will Laparascopically places an adjustable silicone band around the upper part of the stomach.  When the silicon band squeezes the stomach becomes a pouch. After banding the stomach can hold very little food. Dr J S Rajkumar further told us that the key aspect of this surgery is that a plastic tube runs from the silicone band to a device under the skin. Sterile salt water can be removed or injected through this to the silicone band. When saline water fills the band it becomes tighter. With this method the band can be loosened or tightened whenever needed to improve weight loss with least side effects. Dr J S Rajkumar conducted the surgery and my sister stomach is back to normal size. She is really thankful to Dr J S Rajkumar for his treatment.
