I was one of the fortunate ones who was able to attend this prestigious seminar. The Seminar was conducted by the Philippine Heart Association. The lecturers were the best cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons of Davao City. We were taught the basics of ECG interpretation and other factors that could cause alterations on the ECG tracings of patients with cardiac problems. I might say it was one hell of an experience, I'm not confident enough to read tracing but I can say that I'm gradually loving ECG!

I have been helping out my friend in preparing for her wedding. One of her biggest worries is to find a perfect wedding invitation for her big day. We keep on looking over the internet for some designs and some nice wordings for the invites. My friend wanted to keep it simple with compromising the elegant elements. We were indeed feeling lucky that time that we came across this nice site that caters all wedding needs that every couple dream of.
My wanted her motif to be somewhere in between pink and violet, as these are her favorite colors. I suggested to her the purple wedding invitation we saw at the website, it exudes class and elegance, perfectly fit for the occasion. She instantaneously agreed with me and personally handpicked the purple riches design for her. Good thing we have wedding sites nowadays that could assist us in our wedding preparations. To all who are planning for their big day, you may want to start working in the convenient of your own home.

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency is a hereditary disorder that may cause hemolytic anemia to the person expose to fava. Two of my co-nurses' babies were diagnosed to have g6pd and its becoming more popular nowadays. This disorder is detected during newborn screening, so it is rightfully to subject every newborn to this test in order to prevent exacerbation of the disorder by having necessary precautions on the food intake of the newborns.
I have looked into some of the symptoms of this disorder from WIKIPEDIA
- Prolonged neonatal jaundice, possibly leading to kernicterus (arguably the most serious complication of G6PD deficiency)
- Hemolytic crises in response to:
- Very severe crises can cause acute renal failure....
Hope this could help all expectant mothers out there.

that's all i can say!!!!! my friends and I were supposed to leave for manila for a 3-day vacay but unfortunately we need to report to duty because we had 2 OR cases. We can't do anything about it but to cancel our trip and go on duty. What made it worst was that after we were able to discharge our patient from the unit, we were advised to report to other ward for no reason at all. So ruthless!!!!
