In this blog, we will discuss over allergic rhinitis which a type of nasal disorder in which inflammation occurs in the membranes lining the nose. Further, we will also explore how patient safety can be maintained in the treatment of this disease.

Type of allergens that cause rhinitis

The disease is recognized through symptoms like runny nose, sneezing, congestion, itching in the nasal passage or the roof of the mouth and the presence of clear mucus. The breathing of tiny particles of allergens results in the occurrence of the disease. Some of the common allergens that trigger rhinitis are as follows:

House dust mites :These are present in the beds, mattresses, pillows, carpets and soft furniture and the numbers tend to rise during the autumn and spring season.

Animals: Pets like cats and dogs are the main source of allergy due to animal fur but people are also affected by animals like rodents, cattle, horses, and rabbits.

Pollen grains: Tiny particles or pollen grains of trees and grasses cause the disease to occur especially during seasons like early to mid-spring, end of the spring and the starting of the summer season.

Workplace related allergens: Wood dust, latex, and floor dust present at the workplace are the major allergens that trigger the disease.

Treatment approach

Although several treatment options are available, it is better to go with the simplest, low risk, least invasive and least expensive forms of intervention. But if the symptoms are not controlled through these measures then ENT specialists may adopt advanced treatment options. The first and foremost step is to identify the type of allergen that triggers your allergy reactions like pollen grains, dust mites, animal or insects and try to avoid exposure with such allergens. Apart from this, pharmacotherapy (medication) and immunotherapy (including vaccines and allergy shots) are also recommended in patients for better results and outcomes. Moreover, the patients who are experiencing persistent nasal obstruction and have inadequately responded to prior therapies, the surgical treatment is best suited for them for permanent relief.

Patient safety: Key points to consider in the Allergy Rhinitis treatment

To ensure the safety of patients, it is expected that the doctors and the hospital administration should adopt the standard precautions that are the minimum infection prevention practices. As a doctor, you should apply these practices to the patients of different age groups irrespective of the fact whether the patient has been detected with any confirmed infection or not. You can follow the standard precautions essential for attaining patient safety in the treatment of Allergy Rhinitis such as:

  • Maintain hand hygiene
  • A clean and disinfected hospital environment
  • Healthcare professionals should always use gloves, eyewear, masks while treating patients
  • Use of sterile instruments and devices
  • Respiratory hygiene and coughing etiquette to restrict the spreading of infectious diseases
  • Safe injection practices that are undertaken by trained nursing staff
  • Proper education and training of the healthcare professionals

Facing sleep-related troubles? Here is what you need to know


The inability to fall asleep has gradually become one of the most common issues that young adults face these days. Our lives have become way faster than what it used to be before the industrial revolution came along disrupting the pattern of human existence and evolution. Among various other reasons, the common reason why people find it troublesome to fall asleep is due to the high levels of stress that we endure daily.

Chronic stress can lead to an alarming depletion of the body’s resources thereby disrupting normal functionality. Among other common causes of sleep, disruption is anxiety and depression, both of which can either be chronic or triggered due to some element in the environment. Failing to fall asleep may cause some of you to stress out even more which would further disrupt your sleep and any attempt made thereafter might seem futile.

In this article, we shall be discussing two simple and most effective methods that you can try on your own which will help relax your brain thereby enabling you to fall asleep.

1. Control your breathing


Breathing is the most important aspect of our body’s function and not just because it enables us to process oxygen but also because all vitals within our system are synced with our breathing rate. If your breathing is erratic and irregular, then the body will believe that something is amiss and chemicals that might not be needed in the said situation would be released unnecessarily thereby creating an imbalance within your body that would hinder you from completing the task that you need to. However, if you control your breathing by steadying the process, eventually you will find out that your vitals are normalising and within no time you might fall asleep.

2. Tire yourself


Many of us lie down in bed with a very restless and active mind, a mind that keeps wandering without our permission. These thoughts that capture our attention become increasingly difficult to let go of and in order to free your mind of any thought the best solution is to tire yourself physically which would make your body send signals to your brain indicating it to shut off which would then result in you falling in a deep slumber as soon as you hit the bed. The body works on chemical and neural signals which are received by the brain. The best way to get what you want is by convincing your brain of it.

These two methods usually help people fall asleep without the aid of any medication or medical opinion. Think of it as a means to achieve something that otherwise might not be possible and that too without any external aid,

If you have serious sleep related troubles that are interfering with your daily life, we would suggest you to visit an Ear, Neck and throat clinic which can help you in addressing all your problems at once and treating the same with therapy and medications.

5 tips for healthy hearing


In life we presume that whatever exists shall continue to exist in the same manner without any change, this presumption exists as we refuse to give any serious thought to the possibility of a situation wherein the status quo may not be the same. People often are heard saying that precaution is better than cure and in this article, we shall explore various lifestyle choices one ought to make in order to maintain yourself efficiently so that your hearing faculties continue to deliver at the same level for a longer duration. In this article, we shall discuss five tips for healthy hearing.

1. Stop using cotton swabs.

Our ears function in such a manner that they do not require any external help when it comes to cleaning the wax. Our ears are perfectly capable of self-cleansing and that is what they have been doing for a very long time until the industrial revolution changed the way we dealt with things. Using ear cleaning swabs can potentially damage the eardrums which can result in a permanent hearing loss.

2.Moderate volume while using earphones

Listening to music on high volumes for long durations of time can possibly damage your ears permanently or might even impair your hearing efficiency which might force you to seek medical aid and advice that may or may not be able to solve your problem.

3.Use earplugs in loud noise areas

When you are aware that noise levels of a particular area are on an average high, then before you enter such an area it is advised to plug your earplugs as they will protect your sensitive drums from those highly strong vibrations which have been known to cause a loss in hearing or, in a few cases, even permanent deafness.

4. Give your ears time to recover

After having exposed your ears to loud levels of sound, it is advised that you take some rest in the sense that you refrain from overburdening your ears by continued exposure to the same environment. You should rather go and find a quiet place where you could possibly spend a while, in which time your ears shall have received enough rest to sustain another burst of loud sounds.

5. Avoid smoking cigarettes

Believe it or not, studies have proven that a few chemicals used in cigarettes tend to cause a loss in hearing which, in some cases, can be permanent also. Out of the total cases reported, the number of smokers reporting a loss in hearing is higher than those who do not smoke.

With the advancement in technology, it has become very simple for us to cure what would have seemed impossible just a hundred years ago. That being said, it is still better to take care of ourselves without having to utilize technology that may or may not have other side effects, known or unknown.

The thyroid gland and its disorder constitute a vast subject of study. The management of thyroid diseases are topics of widespread debate worldwide. Dealing with thyroid disorders requires a complete understanding of the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the gland. There remains the need for establishing consensus on the management of thyroid disorders in the light of ever accumulating evidences.

Thyroid surgery incorporates an interplay of surgical complexity, appropriate decision making and aesthetic principles. Complete preservation of delicate structures is the cornerstone of thyroid surgery. In differentiated thyroid cancer, the judicious management of central and lateral compartment lymph nodes has evoked considerable debate.

We are pleased to announce the two day workshop on Management of Thyroid Disorders on March 4th -5th March, 2016. This event will include live surgical sessions, instructional surgical videos, panel discussions, lectures and pre & post forum assessment of trainee surgeons.
