Prescription patterns in type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients presenting to a tertiary care centre in North Karnataka.The aim of present study is to a) study the prescribing patterns of antidiabetic drugs for patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus, b) to compare with the standard guidelines for treatment of diabetes mellitus as per International Diabetes Federation and American Diabetes Association.A prospective study was undertaken, over duration of 6 months at the government teaching hospital, Bidar Institute of Medical sciences, Bidar. Patients of either sex presenting to the General medicine OPD with a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus were included. Data collection was done by scrutinizing the patient record forms. Individual data was collected on predesigned Performa.A total of 1020 patients were identified. Mean age of the patients was 56 years and 58.2% of the study populations were males. 45.6% of the study population were treated with monotherapy and the rest with more than one drug. 32.4% of the population received fixed drug combination. 25.9% of the population was receiving insulin. Metformin was the most common drug used. Glimepride was the most common sulfonylurea used. Insulin analogues, incretins and newer agents were sparingly used. Monotherapy with oral hypoglycaemic agents was the predominant prescription and newer agents were sparingly used. © 2017, Association of Indian Pharmacist. All rights reserved.

Prescribing pattern of antihypertensive drugs in diabetic patients in a tertiary care hospital. The aim of present study is to a) study the prescribing patterns of antihypertensive drugs for hypertensive patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus, b) to compare with the standard guidelines for treatment of hypertensive diabetics as per the JNC VIII Guidelines.A prospective study was undertaken, over duration of 6 months at the government teaching hospital, Bidar Institute of Medical sciences, Bidar. Patients of either sex diagnosed with essential hypertension and Type 2 diabetes mellitus presenting to the General medicine OPD were included. Data collection was done by scrutinizing the patient record forms. Individual data was collected on predesigned Performa.A total of 117 patients were identified. Mean age of the patients was 57 years and 53% of the study population were males. 35.8% of the study population were treated with monotherapy and the rest with more than one drug. Average number of antihypertensive drugs prescribed per prescription were 1.94. Most commonly prescribed drug belonged to the class CCB(44.05%) followed by ACEIs(22.90%) and ARB (14.09%). Amlodipine was the only CCB used in monotherapy and multiple drug therapy. There was underutilisation of ACEIs and ARBs despite evidence backing their use as first line agents in hypertensives with diabetes. CCBs were the most predominant class of drugs prescribed with underutilisation of ACEIs and ARBs. © 2017, Association of Indian Pharmacist. All rights reserved.

The forced vital capacity (FVC) maneuver is central to a multitude of information about the functioning of the lungs. But for it serve this purpose proper performance of this complex maneuver is essential. Standards have been prescribed by various agencies to monitor the FVC maneuver, concentrating mainly on adults. Children in general find it difficult to satisfy these adult based standards, and especially the forced expiratory time (FET) criterion, which is a part of the end of test (EOT) criteria, is found to be most difficult to achieve. Technically acceptable FVC maneuvers obtained from 91 children yielded FET values which were analyzed and Pearson's correlation coefficients were derived with height, weight, age and body surface area (BSA). The children in the present study produced an average FET of 1.53s, and over the age, height and weight ranges FET exhibited a positive correlation. Hence adult based standards may not be achieved by children vis-à-vis FET, even though the curves obtained are technically acceptable as far as complete expiration is concerned.
