लखनऊ, 22 जुलाई (आईएएनएस)। शाहजहांपुर जिले के डॉक्टरों द्वारा ऑपरेशन के दौरान महिला के पेट में कपड़ा छोडने के बाद एक महिला को गंभीर हालत में किंग जॉर्ज मेडिकल यूनिवर्सिटी (केजीएमयू) के ट्रॉमा सेंटर में भर्ती कराया गया।
शाहजहांपुर के सरकारी मेडिकल कॉलेज के डॉक्टरों ने इस साल जनवरी में एक सिजेरियन ऑपरेशन के दौरान लापरवाही बरता और गर्भवती महिला के पेट में कथित तौर पर एक कपड़ा छोड़ दिया था।

कॉलेज के प्रिंसिपल राजेश कुमार ने बुधवार को कहा कि मनोज ने शिकायत दर्ज कराई थी कि उसकी पत्नी नीलम, जो कि 30 साल की है, उन्होने 6 जनवरी को एक बच्ची को जन्म दिया था। सर्जरी के दौरान डॉक्टरों की लापरवाही से उसके पेट में एक कपड़ा रह गया था।
उन्होंने कहा कि जैसे ही उन्हें शिकायत मिली, उन्होंने एक जांच समिति का गठन किया और जांच के आदेश दिए। उन्होंने कहा कि रिपोर्ट के आधार पर दोषियों के खिलाफ कानूनी कार्रवाई की जाएगी।
महिला के पति ने संवाददाताओं को बताया कि बेटी के जन्म के बाद उसकी पत्नी को अक्सर पेट दर्द की शिकायत रहती थी।
उन्होने कहा, मैंने उसे शाहजहांपुर के एक निजी मेडिकल कॉलेज में भर्ती कराया, जहां सीटी स्कैन से पता चला कि उसके पेट में एक कपड़ा रह गया था और उसे एक ऑपरेशन के माध्यम से हटा दिया गया था। चूंकि उसकी हालत बिगड़ती जा रही थी, हम उसे लखनऊ के केजीएमयू ले आए।
उन्हें इस सप्ताह की शुरूआत में केजीएमयू में भर्ती कराया गया था और उन्हें वेंटिलेटर सपोर्ट पर रखा गया है।

Lucknow, July 22 (IANS) A woman was admitted to the trauma centre of King George's Medical University (KGMU) in a critical condition after doctors in Shahjahanpur district left a cloth in her stomach during an operation.
Doctors at the Government Medical College in Shahjahanpur had allegedly left a cloth in the stomach of the pregnant woman during a caesarean operation in January this year.
The principal of the medical college has formed a three-member inquiry team, which has been asked to give its report at the earliest.
College principal Rajesh Kumar said on Wednesday that one Manoj had lodged a complaint that his wife Neelam, who is in her 30s, had given birth to a baby girl on January 6 during which a cloth was left in her stomach.
He said as soon as he received the complaint, he formed an inquiry committee and ordered a probe. He said legal action will be taken against the culprits on the basis of the report.
The woman's husband told reporters that after the birth of their daughter, his wife used to often complain of stomach pain.
"I got her admitted to a private medical college in Shahjahanpur where a CT scan revealed that a cloth had been left behind in her stomach and it was removed through an operation. Since her condition kept deteriorating, we brought her to KGMU in Lucknow.
She was admitted to KGMU earlier this week and has been kept on ventilator support.

New York, July 11 (IANS) Drinking one or more cups of coffee per day was associated with about a 10 per cent decrease in risk of Covid-19, compared to less than one cup daily, claimed a study.
The study, led by researchers from the Northwestern University in the US, also found that the consumption of more vegetables, and less processed meats, could cut the risk of Covid infection.
Coffee is known to contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
"Coffee consumption favourably correlates with inflammatory biomarkers such as CRP, interleukin-6 (IL-6), and tumour necrosis factor I (TNF-I), which are also associated with Covid-19 severity and mortality," said the study published in the journal Nutrients.
"Coffee consumption has also been associated with lower risk of pneumonia in elderly. Taken together, an immunoprotective effect of coffee against Covid-19 is plausible and merits further investigation," it added.
For the study, the team analysed the records of 40,000 British adults in the UK Biobank. They looked at the link between diet factors including daily intake of coffee, tea, oily fish, processed meat, red meat, fruit, and vegetables, and Covid.
They found that consumption of at least 0.67 servings/d of vegetables (cooked or raw, excluding potatoes) was associated with a lower risk of Covid-19 infection.
Processed meat consumption of as little as 0.43 servings/d was associated with a higher risk of Covid-19. However red meat consumption presented no risk, suggesting meat per se does not underlie the association observed with processed meats.
"Our results support the hypothesis that nutritional factors may influence distinct aspects of the immune system, hence susceptibility to Covid-19. Encouraging adherence to certain nutritional behaviours (eg, increasing vegetable intake and reducing processed meat intake) may be an additional tool to existing Covid-19 protection guidelines to limit the spread of this virus," said the researchers.
"Although these findings warrant independent confirmation, adherence to certain dietary behaviors may be an additional tool to existing Covid-19 protection guidelines to limit the spread of this virus," they added.

New Delhi, May 31 (IANS) A three-judge bench of the Supreme Court on Monday remarked, "You must smell the coffee", as it grilled the Centre over its vaccine policy and emphasised that the policy to fight back the deadly virus should be aligned with the ground situation in the country.A bench comprising Justices D.Y. Chandrachud, L. Nageswara Rao and S. Ravindra Bhat told Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the Centre, "You must smell the coffee and see what is happening across the country", and stressed that Centre's vaccination policy should not be carved in stone, rather it should evolve based on the ground situation. The bench suggested that the Centre must know the ground situation and change its policy accordingly. "If we had to do it, we would have done it 15-20 days back. If we had to do, we would have done so 15 days ago. But we want you to smell the coffee and realise what is happening in the country and make the necessary amendments.", said the bench.The bench emphasised that the vaccination not reaching the rural population and indicated that 75 per cent vaccination is being done in urban areas. "With shortage there is no chance of vaccine going in rural areas," the bench noted.Justice Chandrachud noted that private hospitals, procuring the vaccines, are not serving the core rural areas, therefore the Centre is merely addressing urban areas. "The policy today does not include vaccination in rural areas, it is a matter of concern," noted the bench.Justice Chandrachud emphasised the policy cannot be ad-hoc day-to-day response, instead there should a plan based on science. "We want the policy to be amended..need enforceable policies for the country. You have to have a policy to deal with these issues. If a new issue comes up then policy has to address it", said the bench. Citing technical glitches on CoWIN application used for registration for vaccinations, Justice Bhat said he had received distress calls from all over the country, and added that young people, who had registered for vaccination, visit private hospitals, only to find all slots are booked. Making it clear that its suggestion on vaccine policy should be taken in the right stride, the bench said "We are not going to run central govt and make policies for you." On the aspect of vaccine policy, Justice Chandrachud told Mehta that the ability to recognise that 'I am wrong' is not a sign of weakness, but that of strength.He added that this is a platform for dialogue across the spectrum. "The idea is not to criticise, but to strengthen the arms of the government..The fact that MEA went abroad, had dialogue shows the seriousness of the situation", said Justice Chandrachud. During the top court's suo motu hearing on Covid-19 crisis management in the country, the Centre informed the top court that it is confident of vaccinating all eligible persons over 18 years, by the year end. Mehta submitted the production from domestic vaccine producers will be enough to vaccinate all who are over 18 years of age. --IANS ss/ash
