A robot gives birth

Medical students practice parturition treatment with a baby-delivery robot at an obstetrician class of Kyung Hee university medical center in Seoul December 27, 2006.

The medical center imported the robot to give more chances of practical delivery treatment for students as South Korea’s birth rates are constantly falling, a professor of the class said.

Surgeon stoped at airport with his bloody bag

A christchurch surgeon in a post-op rush has sparked a bloody bag at Queenstown Airport. Local medical minister of health Dr. Derek Bell intends referring the incident to the New Zeland Medical Council – he says it was reported to him “there was a blood stain on the bag that was increasing in size”.

Peter Walker, the surgeon who tried to check in his blood-stained laundry bag as hold luggage last Thursday afternoon, told Mountain Scene “diluted watery blood stained the bottom of the sack”.

Walker admits the baggage contained a plastic bag full of used surgery gowns, a blood-soaked towel and surgical instruments in steel trays. Walker denied that the instruments posed a danger, saying they were inside steel trays.

Walker said he always asks patients beforehand if they have infectious conditions like HIV infection or hepatitis. “I knew there was no infectious material at all” He said.

“I only had 10 minutes to spare to get to the airport and, as I was going to load the bag into the car, I said, ‘Oh, there’s a patch of blood-stained water’.”

An oldman is declared dead by his odor

Because of the stinky scent of his house and his absence in the streets nine days ago, neighbors of a mexican state called Aguascalientes, paramedics declared Jose Luis González dead.

When paramedics opened the house were repelled by the bad odor and a dog, so they could only see the man underneath a table, and without reviewing it, they concluded that regarding the strong scent, the man was dead.

They called then to the crime experts and when they began to manipulate the “corpse” to make corresponding managements, the body began to move, protesting their presence in his place.

González was transferred to the “Hospital Hidalgo”, where hypothermia and dehydration signs were detected, he was admitted to the hospital and now his state of health is reported as stable, according to sources in that hospital.

Don’t believe in what you see

Kittiwat Unarrom, a 28-years-old Thai student, bakes human being parts. Just a little detail, this parts are bread sculptures.

He said:

Of course, people were shocked and thought that I was mad when they saw the works. But once they knew the idea behind it, they understood and became interested in the work itself, instead of thinking that I am crazy. Everyone’s life is rushed nowadays, even when it comes to eating.
When we eat, we don’t think about our health or safety, we only think of our taste buds. When people see the bread, they don’t want to eat it. But when they taste it, it’s just normal bread. The lesson is don’t judge just by outer appearances.

Looks amazing to me.


Miracle Pills

O.k. this is too much for me, a couple of weeks ago, when I arrived home, I had found the usual spam in my mailbox (physical, not electronic); but also it was a bag with a couple of pills inside.


The so called “Nopaesbelt”, cures obesity, diabetes and “cholesterol” (so cholesterol is a disease?)

It also works for constipation.

It’s incredible that here in Mexico, the Department of Health, doesn’t have right rules in order to limit this miracle products. I’m sick and tired of seeing complications in patients by taking this miracle products. What can we do to stop this?

Why this Spam?

Constantly i’m receiving comments to buy some drugs via online, is there a way to stop this? Is there a regulation? I’m getting every week a post with this words on it:

viagra, xanax, XanaX, online alprazolam, Valium, Toradol, morphine, ultram, blackjack, phentermine, poker, Online Casino, Levitra, Fioricet, illegal drugs

Is there any kind of law to stop illegal promotion of this kinds of medications? I’m sick of it.
