CHOLESTEROL LDL HDL

CHOLESTEROL LDL HDL

Cholesterol can,t dissolve in the blood. it has to be transported to and from the cells by carries called lipoproteins.Low Density Lipoprotein,or LDL, is Known as "Bad" Cholesterol. High- density Lipoprotein or HDL, IS KNOWN AS "GOOD" Cholesterol.

LDL/LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN:-
When too much LDL(BAD) cholesterol circulates in blood, it can slowly build up in the inner wals of the arteries that feed the heart and brain, if a clot forms and blocks a narrowed artery, heat attack or stroke can result.
HDL/HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN:-
About 1/4 th to 1/3 cholesterol carried by HDL. HDL cholesterol is known as GOOD cholesterol,because high levels of HDL seem to protect against heat attack.Low levels of HDL <40 mg/dl also increase to risk of heart disease.
                                                                                                                     
Normal lab values:-
LDL:-<100 mg/dl
HDL:->50 mg/dl                                                                                                      source-vikaspedia

As we Know there are many types of blood tubes used for lab investigations.
1.Black Top Tube:- Sodium Citrate 20% used as anticoagulant for test ESR.
2.Purple Top Tube:-EDTA(Ethylenediaminetetraacetic Acid) used as Anticoagulant for test Hb,CBC.

CISPLASTIN

CISPLATIN

Cisplatin is  a heavy metal complex containing an atom of platinum in he center surrounded by two ammonia molecules and two chloride atoms and it is platinum based chemotherapy drug used to treat various types of cancers.

Action and pharmacology:-
Cisplatin is thought to act by producing inter-strand and cross-links of cellular DNA in a similar manner  to bifunctional ALKYLATING AGENTS. It does not appear to be cell-cycle specific.

Half life :-25 to 49 minutes and terminal half life of 58 to 73 hours was calculated.

INDICATIONS:-METASTATIC TESTICULAR TUMORS
                            METASTATIC OVARIAN TUMOR
                           ADVANCED BLADDER CA

CONTRAINDICATION:-HYPERSENSITIVITY TO CISPLATIN OF OTHER Pt contains.
                                           pregnancy
                                            laction

                                                hearing impirment
                                                  myelosuppression

ADMINISTRATION:-
NIDDLE OR INTRAVENOUS SETS CONTAINING ALUMINUM PARTS THAT MAY COME IN CONTACT WITH CISPLATIN SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR PREPARATION OR ADMINISTRATION. ALUMINUM REACTS WITH CISPLATIN CAUSING PERCIPITATE FORMATION AND A LOSS OF POTENCY.

DRUG INTERACTIONS:- Live vaccines (contraindicated)
                                                aspirin and alcohol (GI bleeding chances)
                                                   with ototoxic and nephrotoxic durgs.

COLD CHAIN

The cold chain is a system of storing and transporting vaccines of recommended temperatures from the point of manufacture to the point of use the key elements of cold chain are:-


* PERSONNEL:- To manage vaccine store and distribution.
* EQUIPMENTS:- To store and transport vaccine and to monitor Temperature.
*PROCUDURES:- To ensure that vaccines are stored and transported at appropriate temperatures.

Keeping vaccine at the right temperature is not an easy task, but the consequencys of not doing so can be disastrous once vaccine potency is lost, it cannot be regained , the damage vaccines must be destroyed, leading to inadequate vaccine stoks and wastage of expensive vaccine, moreover, children and women who receive a vaccine that is not potent are not protected.


** AT THE PHC LEVEL ALL VACCINES ARE KEPT IN THE ILR FOR A PERIOD OF ONE MONTH AT TEMPERATURE OF +2 C TO +8 C. 

** VACCINE SENSITIVITY TO HEAT:-BCG (after reconstitution) >OPV >MEASLES> DPT > BCG (before reconstitution) > DT/TT/HEPB/JE.

** VVM:-( VACCINE VIAL MONITOR):- A VVM is a label containing a heat sensitive material which is placed on a vaccine vial to register cumulative heat exposure over time. The combined effects of time and temperature cause the inner square of the vvm to darken gradually and irreversibly. before opening a vial check the status of the vial vvm. 


STAGES OF VVM:-
1. THE INNER SQUARE IS LIGHTER THAN THE OUTER CIRCLE. IF THE EXPIRY DATE HAS NOT BEEN PASSED:- USE THE VACCINE.

2. THE INNER SQUARE IS STILL LIGHTER THAN THE OUTER CIRCLE IF THE EXPIRY DATE HAS NOT BEEN PASSED:- USE THE VACCINE.

DISCARD POINT:- 

3. THE COLOR OF THE INNER SQUARE MATCHES THE COLOR OF THE OUTER CIRCLE :- DO NOT USE THE VACCINE.

BEYOND THE DISCARD POINT:-

4.BEYOND THE DISCARD POINT THE COLOR OF THE SQUARE IS DARKEN THAN THE OUTER CIRCLE : DO NOT USE THE VACCINE.
