Being Expert Enough.... - KI Doc

I reckon that I am lucky to be a rural doctor.  It wasn’t an area of medicine to which I was exposed as a student or trainee, and it was only good fortune that lead to my career evolving the way it has. Rural medicine offers all of the “best bits” of medicine without the tedium of being confined to one area as a “partialist”. Whilst much of the work of a rural generalist involves office-based primary care, we also have responsibility for emergency medicine via the local hospital and some of us will participate in elective and emergency procedural skills, such as anaesthesia, obstetrics and surgery.

Fallopian Tube Disorders: Overview, Salpingitis, Salpingitis Isthmica Nodosa

The human oviduct, also known as the fallopian tube, is an essential component of the normal reproductive process. The tube, which connects the peritoneal space to the endometrial cavity, captures the egg after ovulation and transports the sperm from the uterus to the fertilization site in the ampulla (the middle portion of the tube).

Measuring the height of the uterus from the symphysis pubis (SFH) in pregnancy for detecting problems with fetal growth | Cochrane

Monitoring the baby’s growth is important during pregnancy. If growth is poor then this should be identified as soon as possible, because delay might result in the baby’s death. The simplest way to determine growth is to examine the baby by palpating the mother's by abdomen and estimate the size of her womb compared with a landmark such as the navel (umbilicus). An alternative method is to use a tape measure to take a measurement, known as the symphysial fundal height (SFH) measurement, from the mother’s pubic bone (symphysis pubis) to the top of the womb. The measurement is then applied to the gestation by a simple rule of thumb and compared with normal growth.

A review of techniques for tubal sterilisation (blocking the fallopian tubes) | Cochrane

Tubal sterilisation prevents pregnancy by stopping the woman's unfertilised eggs from passing through the fallopian tubes to be fertilised by sperm. Techniques to close the tubes include cutting and tying them (partial salpingectomy), blocking them mechanically by using clips or rings, or by applying electric current (electrocoagulation) to damage and block them, and blocking them by using chemicals or tubal inserts (inserted via the mouth of the womb) that cause tubal scarring.
