GVK inaugurates Emergency Care Simulation Complex at main campus in Secunderabad MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” The simulation complex has been commissioned with a grant from the Tata Trusts, aims to provide simulation based medical education using sophisticated, technically advanced manikinsESL Narasimhan, Governor, Telangana, inaugurated the state-of-the-art GVK EMRI Emergency Care Simulation Complex at the GVK Emergency Management and Research Institute痴 (GVK EMRI) main campus in Secunderabad recently, in the presence of Eatala Rajender, Minister for Medical and Health and Family Welfare, Govt of Telangana, Ch Malla Reddy, Minister, Labour and Employment, Factories, Women and Child Welfare and Skill Development, Govt of Telangana, A Revanth Reddy, Member of Parliament and RK Krishna Kumar, Trustee, Tata Trusts. Also present on the occasion amongst others were, Dr GVK Reddy, Founder, Chairman, GVK and Krishnam Raju, Director, GVK EMRI.The simulation complex has been commissioned with a grant from the Tata Trusts and aims to provide simulation based medical education using sophisticated and technically advanced manikins enabling students to evaluate, perform and repeat the same exercises until they get the procedure right. Emergency management and life support skill gaps have been identified on a very large scale across India amongst doctors, nurses and para medical staff by the Medical Council of India (MCI) and the Indian Nursing Council (INC) and the Simulation Complex has been commissioned with the objective of equipping the trainees with the requisite skills. Emergency life support skills to save lives and reduce complications by timely stabilisation and interventions require upgradation to enable assured level of care in public health institutions in India as per the research data available. Road traffic accidents cause a loss of 3 per cent GDP in India. Thus emergency life support skills are recognised as a major issue in terms of ‘patient safety’, ‘patient outcomes’ and ‘economic burden’.Speaking on the occasion, Dr Reddy said, “We are thankful to Tata Trusts for their grant which has enabled us to set up this world class emergency care Simulation Complex, that is most modern and equipped with technically advanced manikins. We will also look to train healthcare providers from developing countries in the near future.”Life time Achievement Awards were also presented on the occasion by the Governor to RK Krishna Kumar, Trustee, Tata Trusts, Dr Kakarla Subba Rao, Ex-Director, NIMS, Dr D Nageshwar Reddy, Chairman, Asian Institute of Gastroenterology, and Dr B Somaraju, Chairman, Care Hospitals, for the yeoman services rendered by them over the last few decades.

iStock/Joerg Drescher (NEW YORK) — Despite there being fewer cars on the road thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, state highway safety officials across the country are reporting a “severe spike” in speeding, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA).In New York City and San Fransisco, road traffic is down over 60%, according to transportation analytics company INRIX.GHSA says the emptier streets may be encouraging drivers to engage in more reckless behaviors.On March 27, New York City’s automated speed cameras issued 24,765 speeding tickets — almost double the amount of speeding tickets the city issued daily the month prior. In some streets in Los Angeles, drivers are speeding as much as 30% more.“Now that the streets are empty, the Fast & Furious wannabes really think they’re living in a video game,” New York City Councilman Justin Brannan tweeted. “The sounds of cars and motorcycles racing on the Belt Parkway in Bay Ridge have become a scary lullaby.”Some states are reporting fewer crashes, but more serious ones. In Massachusetts, the fatality rate for car crashes is rising. In Minnesota, motor vehicle crashes and fatalities have more than doubled compared to the same time period in previous years. Half of the fatalities in Minnesota were connected to speeding or careless driving.The nonprofit association that represents the nation’s highway safety offices says being a safe driver is more important than ever during the novel coronavirus outbreak because emergency rooms in many areas are at capacity.“The last thing they need is additional strain from traffic crash victims,” GHSA Executive Director Jonathan Adkins said.The number of pedestrians and bikes on city streets has also increased exponentially as a result of the decline in traffic, according to GHSA, which reinforces the need for drivers to follow traffic safety laws.In Nevada and Rhode Island, state officials are reporting a rise in pedestrian fatalities.“During the past two months, Americans nationwide have shown that we are all willing to do the right thing to protect ourselves and each other,” Pam Shadel Fischer, GHSA’s Senior Director of External Engagement and Special Projects said. “We must maintain that same sense of urgency when it comes to the road.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

BATON ROUGE – His Tigers may be preparing for the biggest game of the season against Alabama on Saturday, but LSU football coach Les Miles opened his weekly press luncheon Monday by urging everyone to vote in the general election Tuesday.“Just recognize that it’s Election Day coming up, where all model citizens will get off and take care of their duties to their country,” he said. “This is not Columbus Day. This is not just for the Italians. This is certainly not St. Paddy’s. It’s not just for the Irish. It is for all those who have the ability to vote in our country, so get out and do that, please.”Asked what candidates he may vote for, Miles said, “I refuse to say. Hey, it’s a right of every American to keep that private. Your voting, I didn’t ask, ‘Hey, raise your hand if you’re voting for this guy.’ I just said everybody should go vote.”THE RECRUITING BOWL: Several high school prospects’ decisions come down to LSU or Alabama every February, but it is rare that a prospect bases his decision solely on the outcome of that game, the latest of which will kick off at 7 p.m. Saturday in Tiger Stadium on CBS. No. 4 Alabama is 7-1 overall and 4-1 in the Southeastern Conference. No. 14 LSU is 7-2 and 3-2 in the SEC.Leonard Fournette of St. Augustine High in New Orleans was the No. 1 prep tailback in the nation last year, and he weighed LSU versus Alabama throughout his recruitment. In the end, he chose LSU even though it lost for the third straight time to Alabama last November.LSU running back Leonard Fournette (7) rushes in the Tigers’ 10-7 win over Ole Miss on Oct. 25. LSU hosts Alabama on Saturday.“Certainly, there’s a piece of recruiting that is specific to winning,” Miles said. “To what extent, I’m not certain. I can always tell you, it’s a lot more fun to call after you won one, though.”Former LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell said he did base his college choice on the outcome of the LSU-Alabama game when he was a senior at Williamson High School in Mobile, Alabama. Heavily recruited by Alabama, he was on the field as an LSU visitor at Tiger Stadium on Nov. 16, 2002. Alabama beat LSU, 31-0, that night, and Russell chose LSU because he said he felt the Tigers needed him more.LSU-BAMA SERIES HISTORY: Alabama has won the last three against LSU, including 38-17 last year in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and 21-17 in Tiger Stadium in 2012. But the Tigers still lead the series this century by a 9-6 count. The Tigers were 7-1 against Alabama from 2000 through 2007 — the most dominant period in LSU’s history against Alabama. The Tide leads the overall series 48-25-5 with a 26-8-2 advantage in Tiger Stadium. LSU coach Les Miles is 5-5 against Alabama and 3-5 against Alabama coach Nick Saban.Connect with Glenn on Twitter @LSUBeatTweet
A late Rayo push in the four minutes of stoppage time added on saw them come close when Miku fired over the crossbar, but they could not find the breakthrough. CEST Upd. at 23:38 Bad news for Madrid came at the end of the first half, with Karim Benzema being taken off with an injury, making him a risk for the Champions League semi-final first leg against Manchester City. Sport EN Rayo had stunned Real Madrid with early strikes from Embarba and Miki, with Bebe playing a key role in the hosts’ amazing start. 23/04/2016 Gareth Bale’s brilliant double helped Real Madrid come back from two goals down against Rayo Vallecano and stay in the title race. With Cristiano Ronaldo injured, Zinedine Zidane opted to replace him with Jese, as well as playing Isco ahead of Modric and Mateo Kovacic ahead of Casemiro, who was suspended. Vazquez, who came on for Benzema, soon got Madrid back on level terms in the second half. He met a good cross from Danilo perfectly, looping the ball into the far corner with his header. His charge down the left and cross for Embarbo led to the opener in the seventh minute, before Miku was the first to react to a corner and he fired home No 2. Jese could have sent Madrid ahead just before the hour mark, but his shot was straight at the goalkeeper. Bale eventually did as the clock ticked down, with Rayo giving the ball away to him in the centre of the pitch, the Welshman bounding forward, eating up the pitch, before firing past Juan Carlos to earn Los Blancos victory and get his 18th of the league season. Madrid were missing Luka Modric and struggling to create much, until Bale cut the distance with a fantastic header from Toni Kroos’ corner, powerfully meeting the ball at the near post. The three points puts Madrid on 81, two more than Atletico and Barcelona, who kick off later in the day.
