Sometimes I will have to attend phone calls from other hospital, where we have admitted patients. I have to guide them(the staff) if there's an emergency
Just like that I will not chat

At anycost we will do justice to our profession
Justlike that we don't treat.we treat our satisfaction. I am also conscious of the facts

I am sorry I could not respond to the concern of the patient .Main reason is I started observing recently
I wanted to clarify fewdays back itself after I started observing .Infact I hadu typed the facts and while publishing it got erased.
If the patient's parent had cross checked with me ,I would have happily cleared the doubts
Sometimes Double dose Paracetamol 30mg /kg/dose is advised whenever there's high fever (regular dose is 15mg/kg/dose)and Toxic dose is 150mg/kg/dose ,which is TEN TIMES .Hence one can safely use ,without any fear.
Paracetamol is the SAFEST PAIN KILLER when used as DOUBLE DOSE brings down temperature very fast.
Whenever there's pain associated with fever and fever is high the ONLY medicine safely used is paracetamol
Especially in suspected Dengue Fever and Typhoid Fever and Throat Infection with pain in the throat where severe BODYACHE headache it is SAFELY used
Any pain killer E.g. IMOL , IBUEGESIC PLUS, MEFTAL etc will bring down Platelets in Dngue and some may develop vomiting due to gastritis
Double dose Antibiotic is used ,especially in suspected Typhoid, when it is difficult to differentiate with other diseases like Dengue clinically
Especially medicine like CEFIXIME eg(TaximO) which is commonly known and
CEFPODEXIMEPROXETIL eg(Cefoprox)
are used as 20mg/kg/dose instead of usual dose of 10mg/kg/dose.
I don't remember in this child what the exact problem
In all infections we are not using DOUBLE DOSE antibiotics without a rationale
Even a baby of 1.5 years it is advised
Earlier Typhoid used be seen after 2 years,now it is much earlier and hence Typhoid vaccine is given at 9-12 months of age.
I will be the happiest one if anybody raises a query.
How can I get positive Feedback and recommendatio in morethan 95% of my patients .Always have faith and confidence and clarify any doubt .Sincerely I request you to publish your feeling only after consulting. Doctors are honest in their profession as we dealing with lives.
