And u think my practice is restricted to this country, u joker!
99% of Nigerians parading stethoscopes on their vehicles are lab scientists and pharmacist, yet u think that's what goes on in reasonable countries. Pharmacist also parade themselves as doctors where healthcare delivery works.
When nurses are asked questions in the UK, they answer professionally and add that they'll confirm with the patients Doctor, then a frustrated lab Scientist opens a hopeless thread , telling unsuspecting people that he will teach the management in subsequent day, and u are cheering the chalartan on.
Get an international licence, then we can be on the same page.

MrBigiman:With your attitude you will very quickly come under professional fitness scrutiny in most advanced systems. I have seen your kind many times. You lack emotional intelligence
I am interested in the topic of this thread not your biography.
You certainly will not be hearing my biography.
For me that is just childish
If you do not mind let us stick to the topic . I really am keen to hear the perspective of non -medics.
Hepatitis B is a serious condition that can be prevented by vaccines. Should the vaccines be routine and part f the childhood immunization regime in Nigeria?

TempoJames:Is this more than mother to child( perinatal)? What is the source of your claim.
I suspect you are right but is there any research

|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by MrBigiman: 7:24pm On Jun 27, 2018|
TempoJames comes through every time. Health workers are couselled to get immunized against hepatitis B, because of their increased risk of exposure to the virus.
Zones with the highest density of the virus, are zones where there is increased scarification markings like OYo, and areas with FGM thriving.
Well done Tempojames. U are un arguably a good man.

If with all your qualifications this is how you reason.
No wonder they say
Common sense is not Common.
And education does not give wisdom.
It's a sad thing the Yoruba would say, where you expect to meet wisdom you meet foolishness.
I weep for my Country. Nigeria
Carry on bro...
I know who I am and I won't descend so low to your level to start brandishing certificates or exchanging word with you.
We don't belong to the same CLASS.

You are trying to hide your bias but unfortunately you were not intelligent enough to do it properly.
Anyone with a working brain knows where your allegiance lies even as you struggle to hide it under the garb of objectivity. Take a sit.
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by asaretolulope(m): 7:44pm On Jun 27, 2018|
I have taking a seat sir.
With all your MSC sir.
a man with a working brain would
goggle liver cirrhosis and know that it's not the same as liver cancer...
And Contraction is used for a pregnant woman and not same as transmission Sir.
Your Royal MSC scientist...
Lesson learnt today.
Don't dignify some people here with a response
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by phase1: 7:55pm On Jun 27, 2018|
You don't even sound literate. Who is debating Hepatic cancer and cirrhosis with you?
I called you out because you inferred that Medical scientists who went through in pathogenesis, medical microbiology, virology, mycology, bacteriology during their training and even see disease causing agents everyday under his microscope should not discuss diseases.
Go to YouTube and watch Medical scientists teaching medical students pathology topics.
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by asaretolulope(m): 8:09pm On Jun 27, 2018|
First mistake I made was dignifying you with a response. You obviously don't deserve one
Am so sorry for that, please accept my apology.
Maybe you read the wrong post
Maybe you couldn't pull the wool off your eyes.
I never said any of such that you mentioned sir.
I said liver cirrhosis is different from liver cancer.
Because the writer put liver cirrhosis(liver cancer)
Used the word contraction instead of mode of transmission (maybe they mean the same in the world of medical scientist). Oh sorry, since he knows the organism causing it, he would also knows the drug that would destroy the organism. (Since he can do a microscopy culture and sensitivity so he can as well just prescribe the drugs the organism is sensitive to)
And that it would be preferable he does not talk about treatment than refer to a physician or specialist (except medical scientist are also to prescribe drugs and treat patients too)...than to focus on diagnosis. Reason for false positive and negative.
But sorry you could not read all that.
Because I said he should not talk about treatment instead refer to a doctor it means I must be a MEDICAL doctor or a medical student.(myopic thinking by the way).
That would be a wrap for tonight sir.

Scientists teaching medical student pathology? Well, I may agree with u. Lab scientists taught medical students microbiology practical. Some with PhD can also teach them few topics in microbiology. That's true but when u say pathology, hope u know we are not only talking about micro, but morbid anatomy, haematology & chemical pathology all of which are taught by pathologists.
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by DrObum(m): 8:38pm On Jun 27, 2018|
eezeribe:But my brother, you didn't give the lecture.
I believe people have a lot to learn from the fellow's efforts.
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by phase1: 9:03pm On Jun 27, 2018|
He is discussing about a disease not a case or a patient. So why are you 'crying' about him referring the 'case' to a physician if you are not down with trisomy?
He gave a general lecture about a disease, he is a medical professional and as a medical scientist has the right to give this lecture. He is qualified to give a medical advise and opinion as a medical investigator. He did pathology and pharmacology in school too like every medical scientist around the world.
We all know the reason why you are trying to shout him down, it is not because you are objective it is because you and your ilks are insecure when you see a knowledgeable Scientist nothing more.
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by phase1: 9:17pm On Jun 27, 2018|
Exactly what I was talking about. Some of these 10th century mor0ns who call themselves nigerian physicians feel that no other health professional should give a lecture. Even after undergoing training as students under the same professionals while in school.
Many of them read medicine to run from poverty and came out frustrated and lashing out on other professionals. Some of them download YouTube video lectures of other medical professionals in order to pass exams yet feel those professional must not air their opinions with all their knowledge and training.
Days when such may be tolerated are gone forever. They can lament till they drop dead. Other professionals are building capacity and developing their fields everyday.
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by asaretolulope(m): 9:25pm On Jun 27, 2018|
I have suffered today.
Because he gave a lecture.
He enlighten people. Yes he did well for raising the topic and creating an awareness.
But when passing information that relates to health, it better to always give accurate and detailed information not one riddled with flaws that can be so easily amended on the post
Even if he made some mistakes that can be amended
We should just take it like that, because he is the Alpha and Omega of medical laboratory scientist anything he says is YE and AMEN
He knows it's ALL
Sorry to say
But your Brain needs to be REFORMATTED.
I think I have been civil enough with you
Continue to glory in your misfortune
Consultant Medical Laboratory Scientist
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by phase1: 9:35pm On Jun 27, 2018|
Yada yada yada...you made a lot of noise but forgot tell us how he should have referred the 'lecture' to a physician.
You sound like you have an extra chromosome apart from the two (XY) that normal humans have and I'd advice you do a genetic test to confirm your extra chromosomal status. That's your path to redemption.
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by aribisala0(m): 9:50pm On Jun 27, 2018|
That is down to lack of exposure.
In a normal system doctora at the highest level are routinely lectured by non doctors in CPD

It has been a busy day for me; am sorry for posting this late. Today we will talk about those who eventually comes out positive. What to do and how to go about it. Caveat: This information should not be used as a Medical advice but for sharing of knowledge. You should in conjunction with your Doctor.
As an Hepatitis B Patient, your Doctor will probably recommend some tests that include but not limited to the following :
i. E/U/Cr: This stands for Electrolyte, Urea and Creatinine. Majorly it is used to test the `functionality of the kidney'. In other words it is to show whether you don't have Kidney related disease as Hepatitis B drugs can really affect your kidneys in a bad manner if care is not taken.
ii) LFT: This stands for `Liver function test`. It contains ALT(Alanine Transaminase) which is majorly significantly raised when d Liver is going extremely bad. Is also raised in Heart related problem but mainly for Liver
AST(Aspartate Transaminase) which is mainly raised in Heart diseases and also in Liver problems
ALP (Alkaline phosphatase) :Mainly for bone diseases and liver problem
BILIRUBIN: Raised in Hemolytic diseases(abnormal Red blood cells breakdown) etc.
Some facilities run Albumin test and Total Protein too. Albumin is the major binding Protein in the body. It binds to so many things like drugs. So you must have enough in your body. Total Protein in other words is the protein produced in your body. Why these are important is because the Liver is the production site for Albumin and Total Protein and hence both test the synthetic function of the liver.
In other words, LFT = ALT + AST+ BILIRUBIN + ALP ± ALBUMIN ± TOTAL PROTEIN.
When all these have been done, you will now be requested to go and do the following too:
iii) Hepatitis B Profile: This is like 5 test in 1. It has Hepatitis B surface Antigen, Hepatitis B Antibody, Hepatitis B core Antigen, Hepatis B Envelope Antigen and Hepatitis B core Antibody. All these have their individual functions and the `Hepatitis B Profile` on its own placed the patient in one or more categories which is used to help the patient at arriving at the best method to tackle the disease. For instance, you might be a Chronic Hepatitis B carrier or Acute Hepatitis B etc.
iv) Hepatitis B viral load: This test usually involved the use of molecular method like PCR(Polymerase Chain Reaction). It gives the replication time per seconds. In layman terms, this gives the amount of the viral DNA the patient carries in his or her blood. It is relatively expensive to do.

So you lost.
People all over the world can be corrected.
But your breed cannot be corrected.
Because you are filled with ENVY.
No wonder you said he also studied pharmacology
SO HE CAN ALSO Prescribe drugs.
Go ahead sir.
I weep for NIGERIA.
Show me a country in the world where A medical lab scientist prescribe drugs sir...
YOU KNOW IT ALL.
You keep saying medical stuff like you know it all, chromosome, DNA, trisomy, brandishing your qualifications while I have said nothing about mine.
Don't you think you are childish.
I never query your certificate or asked who you are. I just gave an opinion like everyone else on this thread and you took it upon your head.
Sir please keep the little respect you have.
Otherwise I would take you to the cleaners.

|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by TempoJames(m): 10:07am On Jun 28, 2018|
hahahahaha. Don't be intimidated kid. I'm very liberal with knowledge. I receive teaching allowance and it is not limited to my residents. I educate even the duns.
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by TempoJames(m): 10:12am On Jun 28, 2018|
Honestly If I was a med lab scientist I would have gone back to study medicine. The knowledge gap is too much. 2 of my colleagues are medlab scientists but now histopathologists. If they attest to the fact that the knowledge gap is too wide then I can't allow any of my kids or advice anyone tp study any health course short pf medicine and surgery of he/she is not ready to see a medical doctor as head and more knowledgeable.

I jux think a thread should be created which will serve as a battle field for u pple. Instead of bragging, derailing the intent of this thread.
"No body is an island of knowledge"
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by TempoJames(m): 10:25am On Jun 28, 2018|
arobisalaO I wouldn't be surprise if I have conducted autopsy on your mom before. 2moa is gonna make my 19th autopsy on a female body. So I wouldn't be surprised your aggression is driven my depression.
Anyway my condolence friend. I'm a doctor. I also manage emotions.
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by bmlsbmls: 11:17am On Jun 28, 2018|
TempoJames:really?? what's the gap difference then since u seem so knowledgeable?
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by Freddonance(m): 11:23am On Jun 28, 2018|
bmlsbmls:wider than you can ever imagine
|Re: Hepatitis B; From A Medical Laboratory Scientist Perspective by aribisala0(m): 11:46am On Jun 28, 2018|
We live in a technology era.
Human knowledge is painfully inadequate.
Already we have phone apps that perform better than doctors at their own exams and in making diagnosis. Doctors all over the world are thinking of how to adjust to emerging realities of artificial intelligence and robotics while the Nigerian doctor is stuck in the past and fixated on some internecine supremacy battles.
The fact of the matter is that doctors are in a battle for market share with so many other practitioners conventional and unconventional and other healthcare professionals will grow in relevance.That is inevitable. Doctors in Nigeria do not have a strategic response other than bullying bluster.
Someone sets up a thread and some so called doctors feel they need to make personal attacks to be relevant. It is pathetic.
