Tip 16. PPH .
Bleeding from the genital tract after the delivery of the baby(>500 ml at V delivery or >1000 ml after c\section )till 42 days. one of the leading cause of maternal mortality.
primary PPH is bleeding occurs within first 24 hrs
 secondary PPH if after 24 hr till 42 days
major cause of p PPH is atony of the uterus (remember 4 Ts, aTony. Trama. Trombin.Tissue) and
secondary PPH is ENDOMETRitus due to RPOCS.
RX of PPH
1 Resuscitation

Gynecology Tips.


Tip 5. Pelvic mass
causes of lower abdominal mass
1 full bladder
2 pregnancy
3 fibroid uterus
4 adenomyosis
5 OVARIAN tumor(benign or malignant)
6 turbo OVARIAN mass
7 non gynacological causes(dnt forget appendicular mass
8 mesentriscyst
9pelvic kidney.
Three important investigations
1 abdominal pelvic usg
2 ct scan
3 doppler usg if OVARIAN tumor.
RX is cause directed .
Pregnancy needs antenatal care
fibroid myomectomy or hysterectomy.
Adenomyosis by hysterectony.
OVARIAN cyst by cystectomy.oophorectomy. laparatomy.
Tuboovaian mass needs laparatomy 

Non gynacological referred to surgeon\

Tip 6. Endomertriosis.
It is the presence of endmetrium out side the uterine cavity,
Adenomyosis is presence of this tissue in myometrium.
Endometriosis usually is a disease of nulliparous women & ademomyosis of PAROUS (mcq)
most common site of endo is ovaries(mcq)where they form Endometromas. Mostly effect 30-45 years age.major symptoms are Dysmenorrhea(D/D PID in PID dys starts before mens arnd relived at onset but in end it remains throghout mens )Dyspareunia&infertllity.
Investigation of choice is Laparoscopy(mcq)usg(endometroma)Ca 125(NON SPECIFIC)
TREATMENT DEPENDS UPON AGE PARITY &REPRODUCTIVE WISHES.
SURGERY IS RADICAL (TAH & BSO IF FAMILY IS COMPLETE AND AGE IS MORE THAN 40)CONSEVATIVE SURGERY .. REMOVAL OF ENDOMETROMA IF FAMILY NOT COMPLETE.
MEDICAL MANAGMENT IS DANAZOL(ANDROGENIS DRUG)ORAL CONTARCEPTIVE PILLS (CONTINEOUS WITHOUT A BREAK , PSEUDO PREGNANCY TREATMENT)PROGESTERONS OR GNRH ANALOUGES(DEPOT INJECTIONS THREE MONTHLY ENDOMETROSIS IS A V TROUBLSOME.

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)
Salam everyone, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. I am going to write a detailed composition regarding preparation for USMLE Step 1. I am a final year student at King Edward Medical University and I took my exam on June 10th. Final year is the year before internship/ house job in Pakistan. I just got my scores: 99/266



Let me introduce some myths surrounding USMLE Step 1 which are especially prevalent within Pakistan; I am not too sure about India because I heard their students typically appear in their final years.


 Myth number 1:Do not appear for USMLE Step 1 within your graduation

 Verdict: Baseless, illogical reasoning

Explanation: This is so prevalent in Pakistan it’s almost pathetic. One of the biggest concerns surrounding our students is that Step 1 is a huge risk to be taken before graduation. Let me put it in another way: Step1 would always remain a risk whenever it is taken, …

Australian Medical Council AMC Part 1 Guide - Experience and Tips

AMC Part 1 by Dr. Asad Khizar Malik (Rank : 77/620) Australian Medical Council  Guide - Experience and Tips
Salam people, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. Hope everyone is doing great. I'll try to write as much as I can for the people who are due to various reasons more interested in joining Australian Hospitals for post-grad training as compared to the USMLE pathway.

I am a graduate of King Edward Medical University, class of 2004-2010. I did my 6 months house job after graduation in Mayo Hospital, and after that, i gave my AMC Part 1 in November, 2010 from Brisbane. With the grace of Allah, I passed that in first attempt.

So lets start with the discussion here, but PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS ENTIRELY MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND REASONING WHY I PREFERRED AUSTRALIA OVER USA FOR RESIDENCY.

First thing in mind that comes with post grad training in Pakistani doctors minds is: Which way to go after graduation? That is a very tough decision that is …

Getting yourself educated in the desi manner i.e. through the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education is one of the top most challenges of today’s society. Matriculation seems difficult at that time, but when you enter FSc, you realize that matric was the easiest job in the world.  Those obese books of intermediate part I and part II are the worst enemies one can ever have.  People say Medical is tougher, but I find one basic difference in both.

I wont go much in detail about how to prepare and where to prepare from since it is already highly debated on the forum and in the previous posts but would focus more on my personal experience and the bad choices which I made during the preparation phase.
