Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring

Pregnancy is a state of vulnerability. So, it is natural for you to worry about your baby and how your pregnancy will turn out in the end. Fetal heart rate monitoring is a widely utilized test during the third trimester of pregnancy and labor to monitor fetal heart rate and rhythm. It is generally done to detect fetal hypoxia, acidemia and congenital...


BiPap Machine

What is the BiPap Machine? A BiPAP machine is a type of ventilator that helps in breathing. Difficulty in breathing is the most common symptom encountered in various lung disorders. Physiologically, during inhalation the diaphragm contracts which expands the thoracic cavity and drops the pressure inside the alveolar sacs of the lung, this allows the...



What is the difference between infusion pump and syringe pump? We may argue that infusion pump and syringe pump are similar devices with a little difference. But the usage of these two devices depends on patient circumstances, needs and satisfaction. While, we consider them to resemble each other, the outcome of administration of fluids with these...



INTRODUCTION: Chronic obstructive lung disease is the most commonly encountered lung disorder. COPD occurs due chronic inflammation of the airways that eventually leads to obstruction of the airflow. In this disease there is excessive production of mucus along with cough which narrows the lumen of the bronchioles and smaller airways as a result...



ABOUT SPIROMETRY: Spirometry is one of the most accurate and readily available pulmonary function test.It measures the amount of air inhaled and exhaled, along with the time taken for this process to occur. It helps your physician assess the functioning of lung, strength of chest wall and respiratory muscles.Spirometry can measure all the lung volumes...



ABOUT: Patient monitor is a critical device used in Intensive care units(ICU) and general wards for monitoring vital parameters like invasive and non-invasive blood pressure, ECG, Respiratory rate, Pulse rate and oxygen saturation. It provides information to the healthcare provider about essential parameters regarding health of a critically ill...



Cardiotocography (CTG) is a preliminary test done in the third trimester of pregnancy to estimate fetal heart rate and uterine contractions. It aids in preventing fetal mortality by updating the healthcare staff about the changes in rhythm of the fetal heart as well as movements of the fetus in the uterine cavity. A special method called doppler...


Interpretation of Spirometry

Gaseous exchange is the basis for existence of life. Lungs are the organs that perform this function. They help in intake of oxygen for metabolic needs as well as remove metabolic wastes like carbon dioxide from the body. When these organs fail to function as usual then diagnosing the disease at accurate time plays a crucial role in further prognosis....



INTRODUCTION Asthma is an obstructive lung pathology characterised by variable airflow obstruction and airway hyper responsiveness. Spirometry is a more sensitive tool to diagnose obstructive lung disease when compared to symptomatic evidence. It is the most common non-communicable lung disease. Despite spirometry being the most common lung function...


24 Hour Holter Monitor: Uses, Advantages, and Conclusion

What is a 24 hour Holter Monitor? A 24 hour Holter monitor is a type of portable electrocardiogram (ECG) device that records the heart's electrical activity continuously for 24 hours. It consists of a small recording device, which is attached to the patient's chest using electrodes and worn throughout the day and night. The device records the...
