My Dear Readers,

Welcome to February!

New Year, Pongal and Republic Day celebrations made the whole month festive and joyous. Now February is here, a month to share love and affection. Every day is special when we are cared for, and when we care for others.

The marathon hosted by Kauvery Hospitals for promoting cancer awareness on 29th January had an overwhelming response that clearly showed that people care a lot for both, their health and well-being as well as others’.

We could learn to live each day – live well, live healthy and love life. We should never compromise on our health. We need to understand that physical activity and mental agility are the only vaccines that work against cancer, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, heart disease, dementia and other mental health challenges.

Hypertension is the term for people who suffer from high blood pressure. Blood pressure is the pressure exerted by the flowing blood on the inner walls of blood vessels. The pressure is the result of the pumping action of the heart which drives the blood through the circulatory system. Blood pressure is the pressure in the bigger arteries. Hence, we measure BP in the arm which gives us the brachial artery pressure.

Digital Eye Strain

Digital eye strain/Digital eye discomfort/Computer vision syndrome is a multitude of symptoms that occur in persons who have to spend more than 2-3 hours on screen per day.

CVS (computer vision syndrome) usually presents with dryness of the eye where tears that lubricate and protect the eyes are decreased in production. Due to continuous viewing of the monitor, the blink rate of the person comes down which leads to dryness of the eyes. The normal blink rate for an average person is 12 to 15 per minute.

Dryness of the eyes often leads to an exaggerated response of the eyes to normal dust exposure leading to frequent allergies and infective manifestation.
