Introduction

Ahmad Ozair is a fourth-year medical student at King George's Medical University. Having class rank 1 out of 250 of his class in medical school, he is the school's official representative for a considerable number of student programs, competitions and quizzes. He has been involved in 3 international multi-centric studies as a co-investigator, along with having multiple publications to his credit.

He has conducted the largest prospective study of medical students in his country ever, with over 1500 participants (publication forthcoming) looking at their tendencies towards lifelong learning and the decline in their empathy throughout medical school. He has now set up a cohort study to further examine the causal factors of the same, which is the first prospective cohort study of medical students in India on that subject.

His research interests lie in ethics, medical education, post-operative outcomes and surgical critical care.

A rare etiology behind isolated lateral rectus palsy: Scrub typhus

J Fam Med Prim Care. 2020;9(5):2538-2540

Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care

Scrub typhus (ST), a zoonotic disease, is currently being recognized as a significant contributor to the changing landscape of infectious diseases in India. As one of the important causes of febrile illness, in many parts of the country, general practitioners need to include it as part of the workup for cases of fever of unknown origin. While very amenable to early treatment with a simple regime of doxycycline, delayed diagnosis can result in a spectrum of complications. We report here one such complication of a case of ST manifesting with isolated lateral rectus palsy, which, to the best of our knowledge, has been reported only thrice in the world previously. Family physicians also need to be aware of the availability in India of affordable serological testing for ST that is useful for rapid and inexpensive diagnosis, leading to timely treatment.

The effect of clonidine on peri-operative neuromuscular blockade and functional recovery: a randomized placebo-controlled trial

Central J ISA 2018;2(2):44-51

Central Journal of ISA

ABSTRACT Background: Alpha-2-agonists are as used adjunct for anaesthesia. We conducted this study with the aim to determine whether the addition of clonidine, an α-2-agonist, decreases the time to recovery from neuromuscular blockade caused by non-depolarising muscle relaxant. Secondary objectives were to know whether clonidine as an adjuvant improves hemodynamic stability, decreases stress hyperglycaemia, pain and time to discharge from Post-Anaesthesia Care Unit (PACU). Methods: This placebo-controlled clinical trial, enrolled 64 patients into clonidine (n = 32) or placebo (saline) group (n = 32). Study drug was given 1.5 mcg/kg IV bolus at the time of induction followed by infusion (1.5 mcg/kg/hour) intra-operatively. Extubation was started when train-of-four (TOF) count was ≥ 2. Primary outcome measure was time to achieve TOF ratio of ≥ 70% and ≥ 90%, assessed at 5, 15, 30- and 60-minintervals following extubation. Results: 2 patients in each group were excluded due to intra-operative requirement of additional supportive medications, hence in each group 30 were analysed. Significant difference was observed between clonidine and placebo groups in terms of time to achieve TOF ratio ≥ 70% and ≥ 90%, stress hyperglycemia, hemodynamic and pain profile, no statistical difference in the Ramsey sedation score and modified Aldrete score between groups. Patients given clonidine required repeat doses of non-depolarising muscle relaxant at longer intervals, with decrease in total amount administered. Clonidine group had a median time to achieve TOF ratio ≥ 70% at 15 min compared to 60 min in placebo group. Conclusion: Clonidine hastens the recovery from neuromuscular block with reduced stress hyperglycaemia and post-operative pain, along with unaffected Ramsey sedation score and modified Aldrete score.Full Text
