Hello to all my readers and patients
As a surgeon, I like to read all interesting info I can find in my field of work. Reading medicine papers and doing some research can be exhausting, the terminology might not be easy to understand for people not related with the health industry.
Today, I want to share a very instructional and easy to understand infographic created by the Cleveland Clinic on their blog post title: 21 Amazing Facts About Your Heart (Infographic)
Nowadays, having a surgery has far less risks than it had decades ago. With new technologies available for physicians around the country, we can focus on the procedure and not so much on the tools anymore.
Anyhow, there are precautions to consider, especially after the surgery.
Even if the procedure lasts only a couple of hours, keep in mind that the human body needs time to fully recover.
The first thing to watch out after a vascular surgery is if you feel any loss of sensation or movement in any part of your body.
Second, keep special care if you notice any kind of swelling. Especially in your legs.
If any of this events happen, please get in touch with your vascular surgeon. Do not let too much time to pass. Report these troubles right away.
This next October 7th takes place the 4th Annual Fundraiser benefitting the JJ Karmacharya Foundation for Vascular Surgery.
The aim of this initiative is to support awareness and education in vascular surgery for the South Florida community.

Slideshare.net is my favorite source of knowledge when I want to learn about a topic in a quick and, sometimes, fun way.
As someone who loves all things related to science and healthcare, I like to check, from time to time, what new presentations are posted on this wonderful platform. Some are very fun and engaging. The ones I like the most, I share them on my Twitter profile.
Today, I want to share with you 3 of the presentations, I consider, that could help you at any moment
- First aid and bandaging.
No matter who you are or where you are, emergencies can come at any time and it is better to be prepared to deal with them the best possible way. Sometimes, just knowing what to do when someone next to you suddenly “faints” could save that person´s life.
- How to do CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
Some people think that CPR is just to pump the other person´s chest and to blow air into her lungs. Well, there are other things to keep in mind before performing a CPR procedure and this presentation can give you the whole spectrum.
Known as “the nature silent killer for the unprepared”, hypothermia is a danger faced by those who are located in areas where winter takes temperature to the extreme and who are not properly equipped.
I live in Florida, I got other worries, but sometimes I travel to northern regions in the US and so might you, so it is better to be prepared.
I hope you take notes and that if you ever face one of these situations, you know what to do and that you do it properly.
