Eating and drinking just prior to surgery is actually deadly. Not to eat and drink before going to the operating table are very serious guidelines to consider when scheduled for operation. Anything can happen when the stomach is full and your muscles are relaxed due to anesthesia. Read this carefully to know in detail:

Frequently Asked Questions

Preoperative Fasting

By: Cathy Bachman MD

Why is fasting necessary before surgery?

When patients receive anesthesia for surgery, they become very relaxed and sleepy. When patients are this sleepy, the muscles of the stomach and throat which normally stop food from coming up into the throat, and then going down into the windpipe or trachea, and then into the lungs, are also relaxed. http://www.pedsanesthesia.org/patiented/fasting.iphtml


It is more tempting to eat or drink something when you are prohibited to do so – but if you know the real score, you would do them voluntarily. After all when something goes wrong, you will be the one to suffer. Lucky if you still can feel the pain but what if you just slip into oblivion? That would be devastating for the people you’ll left behind. These things are surely unnecessary mistakes when not followed. So, be disciplined and you will be okay!

Watching over a sick family member confined in the hospital is not easy when you are not ready. You have to be alert all the time while tending to the extra needs of the patient. Sure there are nurses who can do the medical tasks – but personal support is a must too. In other countries, a hospital attendant is a career despite not having a required degree or proper job specification. Read this:

What Does a Hospital Attendant Do?

By: K. Kinsella

A hospital attendant assists trained medical professionals in a hospital or medical center. These roles are often entry-level positions although some of the people who take on these jobs receive on-the-job basic medical training while others may have previously trained as nurses. http://www.wisegeek.com/what-does-a-hospital-attendant-do.htm#didyouknowout


Keep yourself comfortable despite the tasks expected from you in tending for a loved one in the hospital by bringing with you all your personal needs like extra clothes, socks, toiletries, towel, preserved snacks, jacket for the cold air-conditioned room, basic grooming accessories, phone charger and other tools to help you accomplish your usual daily tasks when at the office or at home. Remember that if you are equipped with everything, the better you can help!

BIR Penalizes Late Payments for Monthly Dues

It was surprising to learn that even if we have not issued the official receipt stubs from the Bureau of Internal Revenue yet, we are already penalized for 1,000 Pesos for not submitting a “no income” declaration. This gives us the idea why many people are not complying with the tax rules. Here’s the complete tax payment schedule – just in case you missed the seminar:

By: www.bir.gov.ph

Who Shall File

>       This return shall be filed in triplicate by every withholding agent (WA)/payor who is either an individual or non-individual, required to deduct and withhold taxes on income payments to Expanded/Creditable Withholding Taxes. http://www.bir.gov.ph/info-efps/Form%20Guidelines%20And%20Instructions/Form%201601E%20Guidelines%20and%20Instructions.html

If only the taxes paid by the public will go back to the people in general through government services, tax collection will not be a problem at all. However, since the disclosure of the pork barrel scam and the unconstitutional use of PDAF and DAF reserves, who can trust  the government now? Let me know should you wish to react on this!

Knowing Dwarfism and How it could Happen

It was sad watching a documentary of the “Tres Marias” by Jessica Soho. They are 3 sisters living together in a remote area in the Philippines. Their bodies are somewhat disfigured with stiff fingers and protruding lumbar. They are also too small or short for the normal Filipino body size. Here are the medical facts of the condition:

Dwarfism

By: children.webmd.com

Dwarfism is a condition of short stature. It is defined by the advocacy group Little People of America (LPA) as an adult height of 4 feet 10 inches or under, as a result of a medical or genetic condition. Although other groups may extend the criteria for certain forms of dwarfism to 5 feet, the average height of an adult with dwarfism is 4 feet.  http://children.webmd.com/dwarfism-causes-treatments


Knowing about the dwarfism condition helps a lot in understanding those affected individuals. A mere gaze can make them feel an outcast of our society. They must be treated as normal people – because most of them are capable of living a normal life. They can have average IQ, they can function to take care of themselves for their daily chores but only a little different physically. If you see one, just control your excitement and act as normal as possible.
