  17. Okay, so I'm in MBBS 1st yr and I have final practical exams in 2 weeks. I'm kinda nervous about it. Any tips?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's normal to be nervous. Try to stay calm though.

      Ask other batches what they were asked in the exam. Examiners are likely to repeat questions.

      Make sure you know questions related to topics that'll be asked for sure (Like slides in anatomy, blood in physiology)

      Greet the examiner, dress up properly, don't argue and be polite. If you don't know answer to a particular question, say it - It'll buy time for other questions.

      If you have studied well, your vivas will go great. Good luck!

      Delete
    2. Thanks. And I don't know if its good or bad, but my batch is the 1st one to give vivas in all the 3 subjects...

      Delete
    3. It's good! :D I gave viva for all the three subjects too.

      Vivas are fun if you know your content and the examiner takes a fair knowledgeable viva.

      Vivas make the best stories after you pass!

    1. You're welcome.

      It depends on a lot of factors - Can you study well on your own? Will you be able to afford coaching financially? Do you have the mental stamina to do traveling and attend long hours?

      You may not require coaching (I didn't join any classes!) but you need to decide based on your abilities.

  22. Great website!! I really wonder if you have an essay about" why should we keep tourniquet while drawing blood?".Our teacher told us there are 2 reasons first is to keep vein swollen but the second is homework and i couldnt find it anywhere. Do you have any information about this? :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thank you! Umm.. Gee I don't know.

      The first is definitely making the vein more engorged and swollen so it's easier to feel and you are less likely to miss it.

      I think the second one is stabilizing the vein by stretching the skin and underlying tissues away from the venipuncture site. If you have ever done blood collection from an elderly patient, you must know how hard it is! The lax skin makes it really difficult. So tourniquets are used in elderly even if the vein is visible just to taut the skin.

      "Lift the tied tourniquet and stretch the skin and underlying tissues away from the venipuncture site. Then gently lower the tourniquet. You may be able to retract several inches of skin and tissue away from the site with this maneuver. which is especially helpful with elderly patients) who have less collagen, prolastn and elastin than younger patients) and patients who have lost a lot of weight recently."

      But I'm just guessing. Do let me know when your teacher tells you the real answer!

      Delete
    2. Oh wow! I am so impressed! I have never collected blood from anybody yet so i didnt think that way. Sounds logical! I guess i am going to learn it in this week of course i would let u now if i learn it :) umm... one more question too. What if we have an overweight patient like is it because the same reason? I mean retract sev. inc. of sk. and -lipid- tissue away from the site. Because lipid is a fluid thing cuz of cholestrol and do we need to stabilize that lipid tissue too? (Sorry for my bad English :S i am still trying to improve ) ( By the way i might know things wrong i am brand new med student :D i would be happy if u correct them if they are wrong) Thanks for giving time for me (^-^)
