Shushruta specialised in ophthalmic surgery (extraction of Cataracts). Shushruta was one of the first to study the human anatomy. In the Shusruta Samahita he has described in detail the study of anatomy with the aid of a dead body. Shusruta s forte was rhinoplasty (Plastic surgery) and ophthalmialogy (ejection of cataracts). Shushruta has described surgery under eight heads Chedya (excision), Lekhya (scarification), Vedhya (puncturing), Esya (exploration), Ahrya (extraction), Vsraya (evacuation) and Sivya (Suturing). The practice of surgery has been recorded in India around 800 B.C. This need not come as a surprise because surgery (Shastrakarma) is one of the eight branches of Ayurveda the ancient Indian system of medicine. The Ayurvedic practitioner was called vaidya, meaning a person of profound knowledge, who made use of what is called rational therapy. He examined the individual as a whole and not just his disease, took a careful note of the patient s innate physiology, mental state, and other factors such as age, food habits, and season of occurrence of disease. The vaidya conducted a thorough examination using both direct perception (pratyaksha) and inference (anumana). In addition, oral or written testimony of the personal experience of Ayurvedic experts was also accepted as a diagnostic tool (aptopadesha). The vaidya was also expected to question the patient in great detail (prashna), conduct a thorough physical examination using all his five senses (panchendriya pariksha), and confirm or negate his diagnosis through experimentation (yukti). Laying much emphasis on the vaidya s knowledge of drugs, he was supposed to keep in mind both its therapeutic and adverse effects. The Vaidyas laid equal emphasis on the cure of disease as well as prevention and health promotion. They prescribed a daily and seasonal routine as well as attention to nutrition for maintenance of a balanced state of health.Ayurvedic preceptors conceived the role of a physician as much more than mere treatment of diseases. He was to help an individual reach the ultimate spiritual goal of self emancipation, which would not be possible without a healthy mind and body. He was to educate the people about health and disease, and be able to communicate with the lay public and the scholars alike. This required wisdom and skilled communication. Charaka says this about the goal of the vaidya, Not for self, not for the fulfillment of any earthly desire or gain, but solely for the good of suffering, should you treat your patients and so excel all. Those who sell the treatment of diseases as merchandise gather dust and neglect gold. The ancient texts talk in detail about the doctor patient relationship. A vaidya was expected to be friendly and sympathetic toward his patients so that they do not fear him. Charaka recommends that the vaidya keep his conclusions to himself to avoid potential harm. Ayurvedic texts prohibit physicians from private conversations or indulging in jest with women.

Assessing the risks posed by Covid 19 has become a morbid global pastime. So has weighing them against the risks posed by other things like seasonal influenza or car accidents or drowning in the pool. A key element in many of these comparisons is the age distribution of the risk. The coronavirus mostly kills people with a limited number of years ahead of them, some have reasoned, so its potential death toll should be discounted relative to that of an ailment or other risk that has a greater effect on the young.This is not incorrect. But it s also not a reason to dismiss the threat the disease poses. When you get old, something kills you, economist and demographer Lyman Stone wrote on Twitter after sharing some charts that inspired the one above. But Covid is an extra something.

This result is still above the expansionary threshold of 50, but is the fourth straight decline in the headline index and the lowest value for the manufacturing sector in nearly three years. Of the 18 responding industries in the manufacturing sector, half reported declines in July, indicating that there is still plenty of weakness in manufacturing in the economy.Within the manufacturing data, sub indices on both current production and employment weighted down overall results during the month, with the former also reaching multi year lows. The new orders component, which gives an advance look at future production, ticked up to 50.8 in July after hitting the lowest value since the end of 2015 in June. Despite the improvement, new orders remain barely in expansionary territory and signal continued slow growth going forward.
