“The pathetic treatment that was offered to my children in the tertiary care centre was much worse than that I could offer them in the desert”,Said Dr. James Styners after the death of his three children.They all were dead due to offhand treatment methods in Nebraska.

Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) has its origin in United states in 1976 by Dr James Satire after losing all his family in a light aircraft crash.He was so outraged by the slipshod post traumatic treatment of his family that the efforts of this conscientious man changed the face of trauma care throughout the world.     These set of protocols were taken up by American college of surgeons,modified and published as ATLS in 1980.    It is intended to allow a single doctor in  Basic Health Unit to effectively assess and manage multiple traumas.The ideas and techniques of ATLS are spread worldwide and many courses are run regularly in many Hospitals and health institutions for the management of injured patients.    The progra…

Pursuing Neurology Residency in the US
(By Hamid Ali Batch 2017)


A lot of people have recently been asking about pursuing Neurology residency in the US. Since I was in the same confused state of mind last year, I decided to write something about it.
Neurology is a specialty that has a direct induction instead of being a fellowship like other IM sub-specialties. Residency in it is a 4-year program with the first year being in IM which can be either in the same hospital or different depending on the type of program (details below). 
Neurology has a lower mean score of Step 1 among the accepted applicants compared to IM and that is because of "less applicants to number of positions" ratio.  Scope of Neurology The reason why few people apply to this field is mainly because it’s not as lucrative as other fields like Cardiology and GI, due to less intervention/procedure opportunities.

Self-isolation-Coronavirus | Stay home stay safe

                                                    STAY HOME STAY SAFE
With the cases of Corona reaching near 900 in Pakistan , it is requested to people to stay self-isolated / quarantined in their homes.
WHAT IS SELF ISOLATION?
It is to remain confined to your houses and avoid contact with people (also your family members if you have symptoms like flu, fever or have encountered some corona patient). You should only go out if necessary .
WHY TO SELF-ISOLATE?
The virus spreads through respiratory droplets of patients or through close contact with them (less than 6 ft.). It may infect you by touching the things already infected by the virus and then touching your mouth , nose or eyes. On average , a patient infects 2 to 3 people if no safety measures are taken. So its better to self-isolate than to get infected unknowingly and spread it to your loved ones.
WHAT TO DO IN SELF-ISOLATION?
You can utilize this time to explore your talents by doing different things like ;
