Message from the Editor

My Dear K-Way Family Members,

Amidst the band beat of the IPL and the super heat of the Chennai summer, we at the Kauvery Group of Hospitals, had our grand, neat and successful launch of our quaternary care hospital at Vadapalani, Chennai, by the sensational Superstar Thiru Rajinikanth sir.

His words of appreciation really showed his gratitude towards our institution and the medical field.

The Kauvery Hospital at Vadapalani is a quaternary care facility providing healthcare with state-of-the-art infrastructure at affordable cost. The main vision of our Founders was to make the best healthcare available to our society. We wish them the very best on this milestone occasion.

Next, with April welcoming us with the scorching sunny summer, get cool with plenty of fluids. Make sure your body is hydrated to escape from the common urinary tract infections and so on.

Long hours will be spent in air-conditioned places in summer. AC vents need regular checking as they are the main source of atypical pneumonia. Kindly service your air-conditioner vents regularly.

First Aid in Seizures

When it comes to seizures, the main objective of the first aid given is to keep the patient from harm during the seizure. Seizures can result in an altered state of consciousness, or in unconsciousness, leaving the individual vulnerable to injury. Clinicians play a crucial role in making the patients, caregivers and the whole community aware about what to do when a person experiences a seizure. Any seizure type (not just convulsive seizures) can develop into status epilepticus, which is a seizure involving the whole body with loss of consciousness.

Knee Osteoarthritis: Interventional Pain Management Techniques

Knee Osteoarthritis

Knee osteoarthritis is an age-related long-term progressive condition that is a burden on both the society and the healthcare system. As obesity and longevity increase, so does the prevalence of knee OA. Educating the patient, physical exercises and interventional and surgical techniques are key to managing it. Pain, muscle weakness, stiffness in the morning hours, lack of stability in the joint, crepitus and inability to perform some tasks are characteristic of the condition. The treatment strategies for knee OA are dependent upon the stage of illness. Early stage of disease is controlled by structured exercise program and minimal intervention pain management techniques. Joint replacement is the popular surgery in individuals with end-stage knee OA. However, those who are not willing for surgery or not fit for surgery or those who have persistent pain after surgery are managed effectively with interventional pain management techniques.
