Sleep !

Hi friends ! Almost every one of us enjoy sleeping . I feel very happy going to bed on those nights  when I don't have to set an early morning  alarm for the next day ! How many of us have ever thought about our sleep cycle ?
Here are just a few lines about our sleep..
We basically have two types of sleep. The non rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep and rapid eye movement  (REM)sleep. When we go to bed we start off with our NREM sleep and enter into deep sleep through REM sleep. Our sleep consists of cycles of NREM and REM sleep. One cycle lasts for 90 min. Again the next cycle starts. This continues till we wake up the next day morning..
An adult has an average sleeping period  of 7-8 hrs. He will be completing 4-5 cycles during his sleep..
Sleep is in fact a state of un conciousness where our heart rate, blood pressure , respiration and even the body metabolism Will be at a slower pace.
Remember ,our elders say "do not disturb a child when he is asleep" ? Ever thought why ? The answer is simple ..It's because during sleep our body secrets some important hormones like growth hormone which is very much essential for the child's growth.
Dreaming and snoring are a feature of REM sleep.
Hope all of u get a good deep sleep tonight !!
See you soon !
Bye !

PARACETAMOL

DID YOU KNOW THAT PARACETAMOL CAN KILL YOU!!

Patients who overdose on paracetamol can end up with Liver failure , Multi-organ Dysfunction or worse- End up in a Coffin!

PARACETAMOL TOXICITY CAN BE DIVIDED INTO 4 PHASES

PHASE 1

Patients may be asymptomatic or report anorexia, nausea or vomiting, and malaise
    Physical examination may reveal pallor, diaphoresis, malaise, and fatigue

    PHASE 2

   18-72 h after ingestion

    Patients generally develop right upper quadrant abdominal pain, anorexia, nausea, and vomiting
    Right upper quadrant tenderness may be present
    Tachycardia and hypotension indicate ongoing volume loss
   Some patients may report decreased urinary output (oliguria)
 
   PHASE 3

      72-96 h after ingestion

          Patients may have continued nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, and a tender hepatic edge
          Hepatic necrosis and dysfunction are associated with jaundice, coagulopathy, hypoglycemia, and hepatic encephalopathy
          Acute renal failure develops in some critically ill patients
          Death from multi-organ failure may occur

   PHASE 4

             4 d to 3 wk after ingestion

        Patients who survive critical illness in phase 3 have complete resolution of symptoms and complete resolution of organ failure


SO, DO NOT TAKE ANT MEDICINE WITHOUT ADVICE FROM A COMPETENT DOCTOR!
