what would be the result of performing double screening ELISA test?for sensitivity and predictive value?

Author: rhiannonPostPosted:     Post subject:

kool....asking me for tips is like asking a blind guy to show the way..... uhh i dont like psm and i cant imagine reading the whole book.....ENT..... i guess u must b knowing it......anatomy is first and foremost....especially for viva...and then heyyy dont forget to read back of dhingra in the last min.....ok last 1/2 hr....

OPHTHAL.....khurana...the revision points in the last few pages are useful.... i like parsons better.....but tthen if u combine both even better....arrey i dunno what much to say.....yeahhh in clinical exam make sure u do every silly thing rite.....like my friend placed bull's lamp on the wrong side.....never do that even if u're nervous coz first thats the first impression that the examiner gets of you....

orthopaed book......my fav is Ebnezar......its based on APleys....taht combined with clinical discussion is best!!!

but everyone follows Maheswari........( it totally puts me off ....no offence meant)

Then Natarajan is good.....many colleges follow that book

hi rp
Thats right but we often do a mistake in our nervousness although we know the answer....hey whats this bleep's lamp....?do u mean bull's eye lamp....?
heyy there r so many instruments both in ent and opthal..it makes me sick when i cant recognise their name.....i have read the whole park every single line but i dont think i remember any line of them...i dont like writting answers of psm..i just enjoy solving the objectives.....hey tell me about ur result..when they r out...when ur classes r going to start.
becoz u have given the exam u know more than me so u have to share the tips,the do's and dont's so that i have a good revision..hey tell how to revise the dhingra....

hello rp
can u help
im missing my clinical postings,r u sure i will make it up with the books like pj mehta,algappan n hutchinson...
im not taking the clinical postings seriously this year..its my third in medicine..and the last two i attended seriously.i dont find it productive..
i may not be correct..but after attending the whole month...i get handful of good things...that too i forget sometime..taking history is good but history without knowing nothing is useless..
i have read all the clinical examination twice but everytime its become new to me...
without reading the theory its hard to make up at the clinics..its all like..
wat the mind doesnot know,the eyes cant see.."

Dhingra is sufficient.but if u still want to read logan then go for the imp topics like ds of middle ear,csom,its complication,tracheostomy,tumors etc.u can find the syndromes there which r not given in dhingra.

Author: rhiannon PostPosted:     Post subject:

i dont have mehta....or kundu...or any such books....just hutchison....yeah thats one gr8 book... many like macleods....just read it from the library......like if u get the book alll to urself....u may not read every point in it.....but if u go n check out stuff casually it somehow gets imprinted....i dunno....thats how it works with me.....

but rite now....like what u learn in clinics...i dont thing any book an make up for that....plus u remember what u c better than what u read.....

any ways to get growth n development in paed into my head???

Author: roshan2k PostPosted:     Post subject:

thats true wat we see is better than anything....i was skipping just for the exams...i have hutchinson from the very beginning... mehta ,algappan add to it.

growth and development.....it is easy ..u only have to remember the figures..but u r right there r lot of facts to remeber in it...if u have meherban singh u will find all the milestones there...
i learnt all the milestones in the peadia posting but now everything is washed off...
r u reading ghai?

ok lets start from the weight....(i know u can get this from book but if u sterss it one by one its effective)
average at birth-3kg
5months -6 (2 times)
1year -9 (3 times)
2year -12 (4 times)
3year -15 (5 times)
5year -18 (6 times)
7year -21 (7 times)
10year -30 (10 times)

its like a table...
i think the only brave thing to memorise is the milestone...well if u constantly discuss it u can get it in ur mind.so..where u r finding the problem.

ok,

do u have bhargava( i don't)

today i went to my book shop person and checked this thing there.
it also gives a load of diseases including the ones u have mentioned above but it speaks nothing about membranes.

same is the case with the brand new book by our hod released in manipal today. so wanted to confirm it with my hod himself but he wasn't there in opd today

as far as i understood membrane n patch r the same thing or may be memb forms a part of the causes of white patch on tonsil

do u have any particular Q which can prove that they are diff.

anyways i'll see.

how is studies. exams knocking. must be studying hard icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif

Author: roshan2k PostPosted:     Post subject:

membrane covers the whole surface but patch covers a small area....patch and membrane r two different things..but there dd may match..

Author: devajyoti PostPosted:     Post subject:

YA MAY BE

LETS SEE
