Nice to have lots of young Pediatricians with great zeal to learn Pediatric Cardiology!
We at NH have Dr Amol Moray from Sydney, Dr Animashun Adeola from Nigeria as our international fellows
Dr Firdose Rahman, our international fellow from Bangladesh, is finishing the term in first week of May and returning. Wishing him a great career ahead
Dr Anamika Mehta and Dr Mukesh Kumar Singh are appearing for the final exams of FNB on 13th and 14th of this month. All the very best for them from the entire team
Dr Sejal Shah et al had their publication on Cardiac involvement in Mucormycosis in Indian Pediatrics March 2009 issue. Hearty congrats!
The OPD is full and work is getting heavier due to holidays for kids. Fortunately, we have a fantastic team to back up. I don't know how many centers can really manage 100 pediatric echoes everyday!
Indian Pediatrics has published the consensus guidelines for using the cardiac drugs in Pediatric age groups. Please visit Indian Pediatric website (www.indianpediatrics.net) and click on the April 2009 issue. The guidelines can be downloaded free. Very useful for students and practitioners
Had few interesting things to learn last month. We came across {S,D,L} in various combinations in 4 children
We had an adolescent girl with huge LV aneurysm. Cause remains unknown
In the last 3 days, we had 7 children with TAPVC. Is there any clustering effect in this season? Any cause anybody can think of?
I am seeking contributions from the team to update the blog. However, response is very cold. I hope they will start updating the blog

Shall get back soon
