Hyderabad: A city-based doctor is striving to work out new methods to help patients prone to heart attack to have a better treatment facility.An assistant professor at MNR Dental College and Hospital, Dr N Vijay Kumar has roped in E Siva Prasad, an engineer, to make use of the combined prowess and insights. Now, Siva is so enthused by the research, he is helping the doctor full-time.

When IIT Hyderabad was looking to collaborate with medical professionals to design and make novel medical equipment and tools, they came across Dr Kumar who happened to attend a seminar held by them. Their enquiries raked up a keen interest in him to come out with something that would be of great help to the patients. Consultations and discussions soon led to IIT people and Dr Kumar zero in on a new 3-D bone grafting technique and CPR machine that overcomes costly errors likely during manual resuscitation.

The customised bone graft helps in replacing the bone when a person meets with an accident. Instead of taking a replacement from a body part, this can be used as a replacement which will reduce surgeries. Advertise With Us The second project is the CPR machine which deals with heart attack. The possibility of heart attack is anywhere and everywhere and very few people know how to perform CPR manually. Because of possibility of human error, patients may be at risk. My device saves time. It automatically starts pumping and keeps your heart and other organs in a perfusion state. This keeps pumping till the patient reaches the nearby hospital.” Explaining his zeal about medical engineering, Dr Vijay further adds, “I actually started my work from IIT Hyderabad. I did this out of interest as a PhD project and I developed two prototypes. But due to few flaws in the machine, I had to work on it again. Recently in February I got a government grant of Rs 2 lakh and we could develop the raw prototype of the machine. And to make this project successful we would need more help from the government.” Dr Vijay said that it would take another four months to fully develop his machines. At present, both the keen minds are working on utilising the IOT (Internet of Things) to improve their devices further.

In a strongly worded letter to the President of the 15-member body, Mr. Annan says to prevent a major tragedy the intervention should be led by a Member State and authorized under Chapter VII of the UN Charter, which permits the use of force. “The consequences of allowing the situation to spiral out of control are too terrible to contemplate,” he says, calling attention to the danger posed not only to Liberia, but also other West African States, particularly neighbouring Sierra Leone and Cote d’Ivoire. The Secretary-General also calls on the Liberian parties to immediately and unconditionally respect the ceasefire they signed in Accra on 17 June, allow for the immediate resumption of international humanitarian assistance, and resume comprehensive peace talks. All States were urged to “desist from any action that might be construed as supporting or otherwise encouraging the continuation of the armed conflict.” Earlier this month, following Mr. Annan’s recommendation, the Council endorsed a UN role in support of the implementation of the ceasefire. Today he emphasized that “the time has now come for the Security Council to take action to give practical effect to that commitment, in the light of the most recent grave deterioration in the situation.” Mr. Annan also voices deep concern over recent flagrant violations of the ceasefire. “There are reports that several hundred innocent civilians have been killed in fighting in and around Monrovia, and of wanton destruction of property and widespread looting,” he writes, noting that approximately one-third of the country’s population – some 1 million people – are seeking refuge in the already overcrowded capital, Monrovia. At the same time, virtually all international relief operations have ceased in most parts of the country. “The combination of cholera outbreaks and food shortages in an environment of ongoing violence, disruption of life-saving services, and cessation of humanitarian aid threatens to produce a major humanitarian catastrophe,” Mr. Annan warns, adding that the scale of the crisis could exceed that of the recent one in Bunia in the war-ravaged Democratic Republic of Congo. The Secretary-General is appealing to leaders in the region to press for the strict observance of the ceasefire and to intensify the quest for a comprehensive political arrangement “which would be fully consistent with the relevant provisions of the ceasefire agreement signed in Accra on 17 June 2003, including in relation to President [Charles] Taylor,” according to the letter. [That accord calls for the formation of a transitional government, which will not include President Taylor, in accordance with his 4 June declaration at the opening of the Accra talks. In his address, the Liberian leader offered to “remove himself from the process that would continue to perpetuate this crisis?(as) it has become apparent that some people believe that President Taylor is the problem.”] While acknowledging the “commendable efforts” of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Mr. Annan warns that “broader international action is urgently needed to reverse Liberia’s drift towards total disintegration.” “Our collective interest and our common humanity demand urgent and decisive action from the Security Council,” the Secretary-General states. “We cannot be oblivious to the warning signs of an imminent possible catastrophe.”
