How to use the Doctor is IN

This new feature of TheFilipinoDoctor.com displays a switch panel on your log in page.
On the center of the switch panel, you will find the switches for IN and OUT.

To set your availability for the day, click or tap on either the IN or OUT panel on the switch that you find on your log in page.  This will automatically set all the switches corresponding to every schedule you have for the day.  To avoid misinformation, these settings are good only for the day. 

To set your availability for week, click or tap on the link under the panel that reads Set your availability for the week.  This will open your clinics and schedules on the lower part of the current page.  You can now individually set to IN or OUT each of your schedules for the entire week.  To avoid misinformation, these settings are good only for the current week. 

All settings for both day and week will reset to “blank” after the day or week is over.

Thank you!

Overview

Acute Coronary Syndrome or ACS is an umbrella term for conditions that bring sudden and reduced blood flow to the heart (e.g. Unstable angina, non ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction).

ACS is most often caused by acute thrombosis where the surface of the atherosclerotic plaques (made up of fatty deposits) that have built up in the arteries bursts and forms a clot that restricts blood flow to the heart

Other etiology of ACS include progressive mechanical obstruction, inflammation, secondary unstable angina (e.g., due to severe anemia or hyperthyroidism), and dynamic obstruction (coronary vasoconstriction)

Symptoms
  • Chest pain or discomfort (may be described as a feeling of tightness, burning, fullness, or heaviness)
  • Pain or discomfort in arms, jaw, neck, back or stomach
  • Dyspnea or shortness of breath
  • Feeling dizzy or lightheaded
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diaphoresis or sudden heavy sweating
Risk Factors
  • Age ( > 45 y.o. for men, > 55 y.o. for women)
  • Cigarette smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Being overweight or obese
  • A family history of chest pain, heart disease or stroke
  • High-fat, low-antioxidant diets
Commonly Prescribed Drugs

Initial Management

  1. Initial drug therapy involves MONA (Morphine, Oxygen, Nitrates and Aspirin):
    • Aspirin 300 mg orally (unless contraindicated)
    • Oxygen 15 L per minute by mask
    • Analgesia IV aliquots of morphine 2.5 mg as required
    • Glyceryl-trinitrate sublingual or IV as required

  2. ECG within 5 minutes of arrival

Adjunct drug therapy

  • Beta blockers

Treatment and Management

    • Serum lipids within 24 hours
    • Blood glucose
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
  • Additional diagnostic tests include:
    • Echocardiogram
    • Chest X-ray
    • Nuclear scan
    • Computerized tomography (CT) angiogram
    • Coronary angiogram (cardiac catheterization)
    • Exercise stress test

Surgery and other procedures

  • Angioplasty (involves inflating a small balloon to open the artery) and stenting (a mesh tube is left in the artery to keep it open)
  • Coronary bypass surgery
