NHS refused an ultrasound scan to a pensioner who died three days later

'WE WERE POWERLESS'  Pensioner, 79, died three days after being refused an ultrasound scan ‘that could have saved her life’

 

It was with great sadness that I read the article with the above title in yesterday's 'The Sun' newspaper. 

According to the article, Mrs. Sledmere attended her local hospital in London with abdominal pain and doctor diagnosed here with either gallstones or gastritis.

Unfortunately, she did not receive an ultrasound scan to confirm or exclude gallstones as they did not have any ultrasound scan appointments available at the time and they sent her home where she died three days later from perforated gallbladder.

Her worried husband Alan booked her for a private scan but the soonest appointment he could get being a day after she passed away. A hospital investigation into her death has now concluded that 'an ultrasound scan may have given an opportunity to alter their outcome'.  In other words, if Shirley had an ultrasound scan it could have diagnosed gallstones and possible cholecystitis and with the appropriate management, she could still be alive today.

The Stronger I feel, The weaker I am: why?

In this article let’s talk about a little secret that nobody tells you when you go to the gym. In our modern physical activity, extreme high intensity workouts like Crossfit, Bootcamp, Zumba, and any bodypump exercises  are getting popularity among women and man all across the world. While you are feeling stronger and fit, on the other side the condition and balance of the pelvic floor may be weaker causing many serious symptomatic and pathologic problem . One of the youtube videos that has had an impact on me is titled,, Crossfit, do you pee during exercises?’’

I have always asked myself why some of the physical activities which I feel, make me stronger on the outside make me, is the same time, so much weaker inside?

And this is the truth that we are ignoring day by day:

HIGH IMPACT EXERCISES ARE DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE TOVERLOAD ON INTRA-ABDOMINAL PRESSURE

Pelvic floor muscles (Levator ani muscle) have to contain this systematic increase of pressure in order to avoid  that the  visceral-pelvic-organs collapse down . The management of intra-abdominal pressure can fail if several risk factors coexist at the same time (frequency, load, intensity, impact of training). The scientific literature found out that more than 80% of female athletes suffer from stress urinary incontinence, decrease in vaginal pressure compared to no-athletes and organs prolapse. For Stress Urinary incontinence means that there is an involuntary dissipation when we sneeze, cough, jump, run, or we do any physical effort in general.
