a) Peak heart rates at sex are 140 to 180 beats per minute
Which are the high risk individuals at increased risk of mortality during sexual intercourse?
About 75 per cent of deaths that do occur during sexual intercourse are in people having extra marital affairs and in men who are much older than their sexual partners.
What is the risk of getting a heart attack or other disease during sexual activity?
a) The chances of sex causing a heart attack is 2 in a million, even in subjects who had already had one attack. This is double the risk for healthy people in the hours after sexual intercourse. (Harvard study, 800 heart attack survivors; 1996 JAMA)
What about counseling for resumption of sexual activity in the cardiac patient?
A sexual activities program is successful only if each partner is committed to give and receive pleasure. (Nurs Clin North Am 1976;11(2):349–59)

Question of the day
Studies evaluating cancer and dysplasia risk in patients with ulcerative colitis have suggested a possible protective effect of 5–aminosalicylic acid (5–ASA) drugs. Evidences: A meta–analysis of nine observational studies, at the Division of Gastroenterology and UCSF Center for Colitis and Crohn’s Disease, University of California, San Francisco, California, estimated that the risk of colorectal cancer was reduced by approximately 50% (0.51, 95% CI 0.37-0.69) with 5-aminosalicylic.1 The specific dose and potential differences among agents needed to confer this benefit remains unclear. The available literature provides evidence for recommending adherence to a 5–ASA regimen for preventing colorectal cancer in patients with ulcerative colitis.2

Mistakes in Clinical Practice
Possible confusion with dose designations that include decimal points – A trailing zero after a decimal point can make a 1.0 mg dose look like a 10 mg dose if the decimal point isn’t seen. Similarly, .5 mg can look like 5 mg. So do not use trailing zeros for doses expressed in whole numbers. Be sure to use a leading zero when the dose is less than a whole unit.
1–7 April Prostate Disease Awareness Week: Prostate SMS of the Day (Dr Anil Goyal)
Stromal hyperplasia (Glandular and fibromuscular) and stimulation of alpha receptors in prostate gland, capsule and bladder neck causes obstruction of bladder neck with overflow of urine.
Reducing risks of developing kidney diseases
Eat healthy and keep the weight in check: This can help prevent diabetes, heart disease and other conditions associated with chronic kidney disease. Reduce salt intake. The recommended sodium intake is 5–6 grams of salt per day (around a teaspoon). In order to reduce intake of salt, try and limit the amount of processed and restaurant foods and do not add salt to food. It will be easier to control the intake if one prepares food with fresh ingredients.
