Role of Anaesthesia in sustainable environment
Anesthesia plays a crucial role in reducing the carbon footprint of medical procedures by reducing the length of surgery and recovery time, leading to lower energy consumption and waste generation. The implementation of sustainable practices in anesthesia can also lead to cost savings for healthcare systems, further promoting environmental sustainability. By carefully monitoring and controlling the use of anesthetic drugs, waste and pollution can be reduced, while ensuring patient safety and comfort.

Hyperlipidemia: Prevention and Management Strategies
Hyperlipidemia is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, which can lead to heart attack, stroke, and other serious health problems. There are two main types which include primary hyperlipidemia, which is caused by genetic factors, and secondary hyperlipidemia, which is caused by underlying health conditions such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, or kidney disease. Symptoms of hyperlipidemia are generally not noticeable, but it can be detected through a blood test called a lipid panel. Treatment typically involves lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, and medications such as statins or fibrates may be prescribed to lower lipid levels.
“Impact of Pregnancy on Long Term Health World Women’s Day”
Pregnancy can have both positive and negative impacts on a woman's long-term health, depending on various factors such as age, pre-existing health conditions, and lifestyle habits. It can increase the risk of developing certain chronic health conditions such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, especially in women who had gestational diabetes or preeclampsia during their pregnancy. On the other hand, pregnancy is known to have a protective effect against certain types of cancer such as ovarian and endometrial cancer, especially if a woman has had multiple pregnancies. It can have lasting effects on a woman's mental health, with some studies suggesting that women who experience postpartum depression may have an increased risk of depression and anxiety in the long-term.
Sleep Disorders in pregnancy
Pregnant women are at a higher risk for sleep apnea, a condition where breathing stops during sleep. RLS is a condition that causes an uncomfortable feeling in the legs and an urge to move them, interfering with sleep. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can cause night sweats, leading to disrupted sleep. Aches and pains in the joints and muscles can make it difficult to get comfortable and fall asleep .Gastrointestinal issues like Heartburn, nausea, and other digestive problems can interfere with sleep during pregnancy.
Cancer Cervix: Symptoms, Signs, Prevention and Vaccination.
Cervical cancer begins when healthy cells in the cervix develop changes (mutations) in their DNA. A cell's DNA contains the instructions that tell a cell what to do. Squamous cell carcinoma, this type of cervical cancer begins in the thin, flat cells (squamous cells) lining the outer part of the cervix, which projects into the vagina. Most cervical cancers are squamous cell carcinomas. Risk factors for cervical cancer include Many sexual partners, early sexual activity, other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Having other STIs — such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis and HIV/AIDS — increases your risk of HPV, smoking.
Decoding of Infection prevention
Since the advent of international jet travel, bacteria and viruses once confined to remote regions have frequently hitched rides with passengers, crossing multiple time zones in a matter of hours. As globalization continues apace, the public health community is redoubling its efforts to contain the spread of infections. Researchers at Boston University are bringing together their expertise in science, engineering, medicine, and health care management, as well as the specialized skills of investigators scheduled to work at BU’s National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories (NEIDL) when the facility is fully functional, to speed up vaccine and drug discovery and to advance innovative health care delivery solutions for some of the world’s most vulnerable populations.
