Do nurse anesthetists demonstrate gender bias in treating pain? AANA J. 2003 June;71(3);206-9:"A major responsibility of the nurse anesthetist is providing adequate pain relief. Current research suggests that provider gender, as well as patient gender, may affect the clinical assessment and treatment of pain. Implications of the undertreatment of pain may be avoided if the anesthetist is aware of potential gender bias when approaching a given clinical situation."

Doctors Without Borders (also known as Médecins Sans Frontières or MSF):"Médecins Sans Frontières (also known as Doctors Without Borders or MSF) delivers emergency aid to victims of armed conflict, epidemics, and natural and man-made disasters, and to others who lack health care due to social or geographical isolation. MSF was founded in 1971 by a small group of French doctors who believed that all people have the right to medical care regardless of race,religion, creed or political affiliation, and that the needs of these people supersede respect for national borders. It was the first non-governmental organization to both provide emergency medical assistance and publicly bear witness to the plight of the populations they served."

This provides one of the best measurements of what is known as the acid-base balance. The body is an active chemical reaction, requiring a precise balance of the acids and bases, a measurement known as pH. The normal pH is 7.40. There are four parameters which are measured: Oxygen (O2) Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Bicarbonate (HCO3-) pH"

Doctor, is your writing legible? Animesh Jain, Prateek Rastogi, Indian Journal of Medical Ethics:"Today, computers are used in every field of work including medicine. Despite the computer revolution, however, a great deal of information in clinical records in hospitals continues to be handwritten. The doctor may understand what he/she has written, but difficulties arise when other parties are involved. The handwriting of healthcare professionals in general and doctors in particular has been known to be illegible and difficult to decipher (1). In India, as in most other parts of the world, it is generally accepted that doctors have handwriting which needs some skill to decipher. Yet the importance of a doctor`s handwriting cannot be overemphasised. Pharmacists and nurses have to read the physician`s prescription to dispense and administer the correct medication to patients. Patients need to understand the prescription to take proper and timely treatment. In one study, 117 case notes were examined and 18 (15%) were so illegible that the meaning was unclear (1). Another study suggests that doctors, even when asked to be as neat as possible, produce handwriting that is worse than that of other professionals (2). This provides supportive evidence for the commonly held belief that the legibility of doctors` handwriting is unusually poor."

    DrMirkin.com, Hemorrhoids and Rectal Bleeding:"If you have rectal pain or bleeding, check with your doctor. The odds are overwhelming that you have a fissure or a crack in your rectum that can be cured with antibiotics and a topical nitroglycerin cream. If your doctor does not find hemorrhoids or fissures, you must have a tube inserted into your colon to check for other causes of bleeding such as cancers, since one in four cases of rectal bleeding not caused by fissures or hemorrhoids is caused by serious disease (2). If you have a small crack called a fissure or large veins called hemorrhoids, you can often be cured by applying a special ointment made by mixing one part of the commercially available (by prescription) 2% nitroglycerin ointment with 20 parts of Vaseline (3,4,5,7,8,10). If you do not dilute the nitroglycerine, it can cause headaches. I also recommend that both you and your mate take a long-acting erythromycin (azithromycin 250 mg once a day for 9 days)."
