The central axiom of medicine is simple: Support and protect the brain

In addition to creating a sensory representation of reality, the brain allows us to be aware of ourselves and others. Every nervous system process in the human body can be deconstructed into sensation, movement, emotion, memory, and communication. The brain allows us to create, explore, interact, and yearn for something better.

 

At Palmars Hospital, we have both adult and pediatric neurology specialists who treat patients with a variety of neurologic disorders, providing expert and compassionate care to them.

Palmars Hospital experts offer the most comprehensive medical and diagnostic services available for the health needs of every infant and woman. These help women  maintain life-long gynecologic well-being, from pre-reproductive years, through child-bearing and menopausal years. Through compassionate and  individualised care, we take care of you and your family.

Our obstetrics and gynecology team provides a wide range of services that includes basic gynecological care and surgery, as well as pelvic medicine and surgery.

PREGNANCY AND CHILDBIRTH

We support what choice of birthing experience you and your family would like while keeping your wellbeing in mind. We make sure you’re ready for labor and parenthood with a variety of antenatal and postnatal classes as well as guidance from our skilled nurse and lactation educators.

HIGH-RISK PREGNANCY

A high-risk pregnancy is one that threatens the health or life of the mother or her fetus. At Palmars Hospital, it often requires specialized care from our specially trained and experienced high-risk pregnancy team. This includes maternal-fetal and newborn medicine specialists, fetal surgeons and pediatric specialists who care for women and their babies from preconception through pregnancy, delivery and beyond.

Early and regular prenatal care helps many women have healthy pregnancies and deliveries without complications.

 

*Risk factors for a high-risk pregnancy can include:

  • Existing health conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or being HIV-positive.
  • Overweight and obesity. Obesity increases the risk for high blood pressure, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, stillbirth, neural tube defects, and cesarean delivery. NICHD researchers have found that obesity can raise infants’ risk of heart problems at birth by 15%.
  • Multiple births. The risk of complications is higher in women carrying more than one fetus (twins and higher-order multiples). Common complications include preeclampsia, premature labor, and preterm birth. More than one-half of all twins and as many as 93% of triplets are born at less than 37 weeks’ gestation.
  • Young or old maternal age. Pregnancy in teens and women age 35 or older increases the risk for preeclampsia and gestational high blood pressure.

 

OBGYN Services include:

  • Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (Urogynecology)
  • Fertility and Reproductive Medicine
  • General Gynecology

Surgical operations must satisfy three basic conditions: the wound must be inflicted without pain; haemorrhage must be prevented or arrested; and the wound must heal.

It is especially the ability to ensure wound healing, by means of aseptic treatment, and the provision of safe and effective anaesthesia for the patient that gives impetus to surgery at Palmars Hospital. The necessity for asepsis and quick post surgery healing regulates the conduct of our surgeons.

Adopting operating modalities that prevent breaches in aseptic techniques,  minimizing patients preoperative stay time, preventing the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), using best in practice surgical methods and materials, post-operation parenteral antimicrobial prophylaxis,  appropriate surgical wound and incision management and incisional pain management in the post-operative time period are clinical imperatives at Palmars Hospital.

MANAGEMENT OF VICTIMS OF TRAUMA

A major issue in accident and emergency medicine remains the optimal management of victims of trauma. When trauma care is fragmented and disorganized it has an unacceptably bad outcome. When prehospital care of the accident victim is suboptimal and patients are taken to hospitals without regard to surgical availability, it results in increased morbidity and mortality.

At Palmars Hospital, we have effective triage guidelines ensuring that the right patients receive the right treatment at the right time ensuring good outcomes and saving lives. Aggressive life-saving procedures are performed frequently by our physicians especially when there is blood loss or head injury.

Care is provided by a multidisciplinary team consisting of senior medical personnel in anesthesia, accident and emergency medicine, general and orthopaedic surgery and intensive care. All of these specialists are available 24 hours a day.

Early recognition and rapid definitive surgical management of life-threatening injuries are key to our success at Palmars Hospital. Our properly organized trauma system ensures that accident victims do not succumb to death as a result of treatable injuries.

 

TRAUMA SYSTEM

Palmars Hospital trauma system consists of four patient components:

(1) access to care;

(2) pre-hospital care;

(3) hospital care; and

(4) rehabilitation;

 

PREHOSPITAL CARE

Death within the first hours after injury may well be prevented by high-quality care in the pre-hospital setting.

The goals therefore of pre-hospital care of the critically injured patient should be to reduce the time  from injury to definitive surgical care and yet provide resuscitation that will increase the chances of the patient arriving at the hospital alive and in a reasonable condition. Other considerations must of course be cost, a mechanism to maintain skills and the continuous evaluation of the usefulness of the various procedures.

 

HOSPITAL CARE

This constitutes our major strength. Organizations who retain our services find us quite dependable in emergency and trauma cases. Our emergency team is always on ground to provide care and prevent death in such cases. Oxygen concentrators and cylinders with piped oxygen in all the rooms, and emergency room, crash cart,  ECG machines, monitors, defibrillators AED, Suction machines, a cardiotocograph, vacuum extractors, a customized ambulance vehicle, e.t.c. are all available to aid the provision of critical and emergency care to our patients.

In the last decades, the use of Ultrasonography has become increasingly common in medical practice and hospitals around the world, and the superiority of ultrasonography over commonly used X-ray techniques has resulted in significant changes in diagnostic imaging procedures.

At Palmars Hospital, ultrasound is a core technology for diagnostics and remains one of the safest.  With a responsible and cautious approach to ultrasound, patient safety is assured and clinical effectiveness is enhanced. We use the lowest exposure necessary to provide essential diagnostic information.

Our clinical use of ultrasound covers obstetrics scanning (Doppler ultrasound in pregnancy), gynecological ultrasonography (abdomino-pelvic scanning), paediatric ultrasound, cardiac ultrasound, thoracic ultrasound, and visualization of small structures in the musculo-skeletal system.

GYNAECOLOGY (UTERUS AND OVARIES)

Gynaecological Ultrasonography is a non-invasive imaging technique that can be used:

■ in the diagnostic work-up of pelvic masses suspected on the basis of history and pelvic clinical examination;

■ in the diagnostic work-up of dysfunctional or infective diseases that involve or can involve the pelvis;

■ in the differential diagnosis of other acute abdominopelvic diseases (appendicitis, diverticulitis, inammatory bowel diseases);

■ in the peri- and postmenopausal diagnostic evaluation of women with atypical uterine bleeding, in order to dene the macroscopic characteristics of the endometrium and uterine cavity;

■ in ovarian and endometrial surveillance of women at high-risk for ovarian and endometrial cancer (familial, drugs);

■ in monitoring spontaneous or drug-induced ovulation;

■ in monitoring therapy and surgery.

OBSTETRICS

First trimester trimester is the gestational period between conception and 13 weeks + 6 days of gestational age. An embryo is the product of conception until 10 weeks + 0 days of gestational age; a fetus is the product of conception from 10 weeks + 1 day until delivery.

INDICATIONS FOR ULTRASOUND DURING THE FIRST TRIMESTER ARE:

■ vaginal bleeding or pelvic pain;

■ a discrepant uterine size for gestational age;

■ estimation of gestational age;

■ support for an invasive diagnostic procedure (e.g. sampling the chorionic villus);

■ prediction of the risk for recurrence of fetal anomalies;

■ screening for fetal anomalies and aneuploidies (in selected, high-risk pregnancies);

■ routine assessment (screening) of low-risk pregnancies.

PURPOSES OF ULTRASOUND DURING THE FIRST TRIMESTER ARE:

■ to visualize the gestational sac inside the uterus and evaluate the number and implant site of sacs;

■ to visualize the embryo or fetus, evaluate their number and visualize their cardiac activity;

■ to estimate gestational age, by measuring the mean sac diameter or crown– rump length or the biparietal diameter of the head;

■ to evaluate the morphology of the uterus and adnexa;

■ to provide an early diagnosis of fetal anomalies (in selected cases);

■ to screen for aneuploidy (in selected cases).

WITH THESE EVALUATIONS, IT IS POSSIBLE TO DIAGNOSE DURING THE FIRST TRIMESTER:

■ a normal (intrauterine) or ectopic (intra- or extrauterine) implant;

■ embryo or fetus life or early pregnancy failure (miscarriage, abortion)

■ the number of embryos or fetuses (single or multiple pregnancy);

■ chorionicity and amnionicity in multiple pregnancies;

■ correct gestational age;

■ anomalies of the uterus (e.g. malformations, myomas) and adnexa (e.g. cysts, neoplasms);

■ morphological fetal abnormalities;

■ aneuploidy, by measuring nuchal translucency between 11 and 14 weeks of gestation.

  • Out of the 17 million premature deaths (under the age of 70) due to noncommunicable diseases in 2015, 82% are in low- and middle-income countries, and 37% are caused by CVDs.
  • Most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented by addressing behavioural risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and obesity, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol using population-wide strategies.
  • People with cardiovascular disease or who are at high cardiovascular risk (due to the presence of one or more risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidaemia or already established disease) need early detection and management using counselling and medicines, as appropriate.
