Title: Substance Abuse, Drugs and Addictions: Guidebook
Date of publication: September 2009
Description/subject: "Substance abuse refers to the harmful or hazardous use of psychoactive substances, including alcohol and illicit drugs. It can also be simply defined as a pattern of harmful use of any substance for mood-altering purposes. Generally, when most people talk about substance abuse, they are referring to the use of illegal drugs. But illegal drugs are not the only substances that can be abused. Alcohol, prescribed medications, inhalants and even coffee and cigarettes, can be used to harmful excess. Substance abuse can lead to dependence syndrome - a cluster of behavioural, cognitive, and physiological phenomena that develop after repeated use including a strong desire to take the drug, persisting in its use despite harmful consequences, increased tolerance, and a physical withdrawal state. In this guidebook, based upon the situation in our community, we present the most common substances that are often abused, how they are used, their street names, and their intoxicating and health effects.".....CONTENTS:- Part I: Alcohol... Amphetamine, Yaba, Ecstasy... Benzodiazepines... Betel Nut and Betal Leaf (Kwan-ya)... Cannabis... Cocaine - (Crack)... Codeine... Heroin... Volatile Substance or Inhalants ... Methadone... Opium... Tobacco..... PART II:- General Views of Substance Abuse... Chronic Effects of Alcoholism... Management in Substance Abuse Overdose... Psycho-Counselling for Substance Abuse.

Date of publication: September 2008
Description/subject: A technical card is practical course intended to assist a medical or paramedical personnel to operate a basic, specific and clearly identified type of health care. We already received much positive feedbacks from our readers, and as a result, we have been much enthusiastic to continue working on the similar medico- technical procedures as an additional volume to our previous health messenger issue. But this time, we have introduced some more specific clinical procedures on dental, orthopaedic, obstetric and gynaecological fields. In each and every article, our article countributors present step by step instruction for those common procedures and documentations, with many clear and easy-tounderstand illustrations to enhance comprehension of our readers. Some procedures may be unfamiliar with our medic readers, but we would like to keep them in this issue as our aim is to alleviate the medical knowledge as well as to widen the scope of our camp-based medical personnel. We hope this issue will help our medical personnel fulfill their responsible duties properly and systmatically. Moreover, we would like to thank all our contributors and readers for these two consecutive volumes.......I Medical Part: General Physical Examination... Management in Airway Obstruction... Supra-pubic catheterisation... Digital Per rectal Examination...... II - Obstetric and Gynaecological Part: Vaginal or Pelvic Examination... Management in Breech Presentation...

Date of publication: March 2008
Description/subject: A technical card is a practical course intended to assist medical or paramedical personnel to operate a basic, specific and clearly identified type of care. Medico-technical procedures are potentially high-risk situations, particularly when physicians are novice/inexperienced or if they have not performed the procedure recently. The objectives of this HM issue 39 are:- • For medical practitioners to master the technical skills in basic medical procedures • To minimize the risk of medical errors and clinical complications • To educate and support practitioner about how to prepare and infrom the patient before each procedure. In this issue, indications, contraindications, and complications are explained in an easy-to-understand fashion. Patient positioning, anatomical landmarks and procedural techniques are demonstrated in a systematic approach, for better understanding both for the medical personnel conducting the procedure as well as the patient.
