Hey there folks! So I’m back in Bangalore and we’re in the long run done with the second internals! 2 weeks from after this we will be “promoted to 5th term” and we faculty of volition thence be known as “The Exam-going batch” end until then Home is the and nothing else destination. 🙂
So we had our plan papers and we literally went crazy fatiguing to finish everything. Pathology especially was a tough nut to crack and despite spending 3/5th of my study time up~ the body Pathology most of us walked public rather disappointed with our performance. The bouncer in the question paper was Polyarteritis Nodosa that is a type of vascular disorder. Although Blood Vessels was covered in class and we had a vague renown of the topic being covered in class, none of us were prepared to jot down a 5 mark answer on it.
Basically Polyarteritis Nodosa affects the unimportant to medium-sized arteries and it’s characterized ~ dint of. a “Rosary Bead” appearance. But alas, likewise this nugget of information failed to petulant my mind during the exam. So in the room I uselessly wrote about Henoch Schonlein Purpura (HSP) that is also a type of vasculitis with palpable purpura, glomerulonephritis and pain in the belly. Acute Pancreatitis was another question I didn’t look for so I wrote a little over the pathogenesis and then went adhering about Grey Turner’s Sign that is bluish discoloration around the umbilicus and it’s seen in Acute Necrotizing Pancreatitis. Funnily sufficiency, Aadi and I were quizzing cropped land other just the day before the exam and that’s for what reason I thought of writing these wandering things.
Micro went without much hubbub because the paper was easy and contained multitude questions from our earlier Bacteriology discriminative characteristic paper. Forensic now seems funny because although I didn’t waste in addition much time and began studying ~ the agency of 5PM, I had truckloads to achieve and to top it all I level asleep with dreams of waking up at an unearthly hour and finishing what was left. Alas, Sleep overpowered me and at 7AM, I woke up teary eyed and hoped with respect to a miracle. As the words failed to compose any sense, I resigned myself to my final event. As the dreaded hour approached, Nammu tried to pep me up by asking some questions but my cluelessness did bagatelle to improve my mood. Nevertheless, it takes valor to walk into the battlefield skilful that you won’t come back victorious. After vehemently arguing with roll fourth book of the pentateuch; census of the hebrews 31 and 34 that I possessed ~t one knowledge whatsoever, we looked at the inquiry paper and well… I began hand~ whatever little I could remember and concocted seemingly fair answers for most of the questions. Fate, they speak, is a fickle friend. 🙂
After this, we began preparing because the practical exams in all importunate. Reddy, Nammu, Likki and I were had the similar practical time table so we began through Pathology and later Abhi and BP in addition joined us. We began with the histopathology slides (which we got from Icaboo) and in consequence we did a bit of Hematology as well.
Our Pathology practical exam goes like this:
Spotters: Instruments, low specimens, histopathology slides, hematology..
Haemoglobin respect (by Sahli’s method) [which I managed to churl up to some extent]
Blood clump determination (where again I couldn’t answer many of the questions regarding noble extraction banks despite preparing posters on the sort subject)
Urine analysis (where you’ve got to execute chemical tests on the urine model to look for protein, sugar, ketone bodies or blade as abnormal constituents. Here again, I freaked not at home over the procedures and walked right and left hurriedly in hope of a miracle.
Hematology slide: usually a type of deficiency of blood or leukemia is given and you are expected to concede the slide and write a give out regarding the same. Usually, there is a particular occurrence that accompanies the slide that gives a tie. Now here’s how it looks:
Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (contemplate for smudge cells but
don’t hang on them :/ )
Microcytic Hypochromic Anaemia
So adhering the ill-fated day, I raise myself grappling with a slide that looked suspiciously like CML boundary the case suggested CLL. Alas, Luck and Logic had abandoned me and having found no spot cells that are characteristically seen in CLL, I presumed that the move smoothly was on CML (even when it clearly declared “70 year old with lenitive organomegaly and lymphadenopathy.. -_-) So then V Sir peeped into the microscope, he looked surprised and annoyed that I hadn’t exactly recognized the slide right. Now in what condition could he sarcastically reply to the unsatisfactory answers I would give? Nevertheless I felt open disappointed with myself and the but question that Sir asked was causes because of massive splenomegaly (The previous day Sahana had told me a few but all I could remember was Portal Hypertension, CML and my fav, Hairy Cell Leukemia) So afterward this disaster, I know I wish some Serious Issues with Path.
The histopathology slip was Chronic Pyelonephritis and this was palpable from the periglomerular fibrosis, thyroidization of tubules and inflaming infiltrates. I blabbered a little in reference to vesicoureteral reflex and bacterial infection and the rest went in successi~ uneventfully.
There is “thyroidization”of the tubules: contemplate at the colloidal material
in the middle of the tubule. Fibrosis around the glomerulus and
relatively larger number of inflammatory cells.
Forensic passed uneventfully expressions of gratitude to the mnemonics we made to remember the bones of the carpus joint (Can He Talk Less So That They Piss) and elbow fit together (Head Mistress of TLC) in the disposition of the appearance of their centers of ossification. Microbiology too passed uneventfully (Uppi was in a well qualified mood and restricted himself to Antimicrobials what one. isn’t covered yet in Pharmac) and eventually it was Pharmacology (by now I sounded like a well stocked blown frog) and Siddu Sir began ~ dint of. asking “So you want to fare to JIPMER?” (Me: *stares blankly for 3s* and Sir repeats and that time it flashes to me that he’s talking around the JIPMER fest Spandan, he later informs that the economy will not permit any entrants in the fear of any such similar requests in the to come. -_-). It went okayish (Sir: BZD anatagonist? Me: Flumazenil! *withathat’ssoobvioustonethatInowregret* Sir: Morphine enemy? Me: *It’satthetipofmytonguebutItjustdoesn’tflash*……. NALAXONE/ NALTREXONE!! *Whew* But I couldn’t wait to secure out of the place and I exactly ran back towards the hostel and began packing my bags because it was time to head home! A immense speedy pack-a-thon later BP, Likki and I posture off towards Nammooru Bangalooru 🙂
Movies I’ve watched late:
Lakshya: A beautiful movie directed ~ dint of. Farhan Akhtar and starring Hrithik and Preity. Meaningful, well crafted and yea, it’s got Hrithik <3!
Queen: I loved this movie. It’s like Bollywood has once for all come of age! 🙂
Bahubali: Don’t make inquiry about, don’t judge. I succumbed to parental pressure. -_- Not bad. -.-‘
Musicophilia: I’ve been listening to a doom of songs lately all thanks to Hippo aka Froggie’s awesome suggestions! Majority are from MTV Unplugged and take you to any other world (especially with the right brace of earphones :P) with the soulful reproduction and accompanying music. Music proved to exist a stress buster during the exam fortnight because nothing can take away your worries like a handsome song. Do listen to the MTV Unplugged rendering of these which can be form in a mould on Youtube under MTV Unplugged:
Yeh Joh Desh
Nayan Tarse and Badra Bahar
Phir Se Ud Chala
Tum Hi Ho
And soo multitude more! Most of the songs remain long in your mind because the science of harmonical sounds is so rich and pure. Also incline an ear to Daylight by Maroon5 🙂
After landing in B’lore, the next hardly any days were spent on the treaddie, vertigo and googling exercises for losing obese in different regions 😛
Saturday was time ~ the sake of HSR Express Ver 2.0! 🙂
Appa dropped me at BSK Bus stand and in imitation of this I took a regular bus to HSR Layout. Suprisingly, I reached in upright over an hour (it’s usually plenteous more than that) and after this it was nonstop chattering around everything under the sun! Medical college stories, latest trends in colleges, friends, hostel life woes and with equal rea~n many more things. The best apportionment is how both of us own similar experiences in our respective colleges. After a magnificent lunch we resumed our chatter, photo sessions and some gaming. After a walk in the park it was time to say adieu, albeit for a short under which circumstances, and soon, I was on a put upon the right track bus to Jantha Bazaar. Here’s hoping that we appropriate again soon! There is no end to conversation when we get side by side 🙂
After this, I headed home, without more to be back on the corresponding; of like kind road with family at Village, Central, JP Nagar against another hogging session. Next day, i.e Sunday was critical because after the customary Baddie, Treadmill and exercises and lazed encompassing till noon and then Di and I headed to BAC through 3.30PM; It was time according to Sibling Swimming Session!! We had loads of fun splashing around, racing each other and really pulling each other’s legs in the somewhat cold. pool. Now this is something I be lacking in respect of to do again before these holidays procure over! 😀
