There's always a way to learn something. It's include anatomy. Especially when you are studying to became a doctor.
Last week I had a chance to see "Gunther von hagens' Körperwelten das Original: Eine Herzenssache". It's a body worlds exhibiton by Plastinator Dr. Gunther von Hagens and curator Dr. Angelina Whalley at the Postbahnhof. The tickets price are 17 € for adults, 13 € for children (7-18 years old) and 15 € for Students (<30 years old) & Concessions. I went there with my husband and his colleagues.
Featuring unique collection of over 200 authentic human specimens including whole-body plastinates, organs and translucent body slices, this exhibition highlights cardiology and the heart.
The exhibition was great. The whole-body plastinates show us real good muscles, nerves, blood vessels and also bones. You will see clearly which one deltoids, biceps, triceps and others muscles. I wish I could learn the anatomy from this kind of cadaver, so I don't have to guess which one which :). The organs and translucent body slices were great too. It will be nice to learn pathophysiology with this specimens. They put the whole-body plastinates in some position such as playing basketball, dancing, painting and lots of other. With this we can see which muscles are working when we are in that kind of position. There are whole-body plastinates for a man riding a horse and a bike. They even plastinates the horse. They also have others animals such as giraffe that climb coconut tree, chicken, bird and others.
The whole show was great. I think it will good to have this kind of stuff to learn in medical school. There's one show like this held in Jakarta. But I didn't have a chance to see it. We even buy the catalogue that contain lots of their collection's pictures because we can't took picture. Look like my Sobotta Atlas of Human Anatomy :). It cost 19 € but worth it.
"Through the plastinate we recognize ourselves, our vulnerability and the miracle that we are. This physical self-recognition sparks a new health-concious lifestyle which moves our hearts." - Dr. Gunther von Hagens

Sering banget liat asparagus bertebaran di supermarket atau di pedagang sayuran belakangan ini. Trus ada temen yang juga posting tentang sup asparagus. Ditambah rasa penasaran bagaimana masak asparagus. Jadilah saya browsing di internet, nonton film-film di youtube, dan tanya-tanya sama temen saya tentang asparagus dan berbagai cara memasak asparagus. Setelah baca-baca dan nonton, jadi pingin bikin sedikit tulisan tentang si asparagus ini.
Asparagus adalah jenis sayuran yang banyak ditemukan pada saat musim semi (seperti sekarang ini). Makanya banyak banget bertebaran dimana-mana. Banyak dijumpai pada bulan April sampai Juni.
Asparagus termasuk non-starchy vegetables, sehingga kalori yang dikandungnya kecil. Setiap batang asparagus memiliki sekitar 4 kalori. Tetapi walaupun rendah kalori, nutrisinya tetap banyak. Setiap sajian sekitar 150 gram memiliki kandungan serat seberat 3 gram. Asam folat yang dikandung asparagus sangat tinggi, sekitar 60% rekomendasi perhari. Asparagus juga merupakan sumber glutation yang berguna untuk proses sintesis DNA dan mencegah kanker.

Maybe you love lying under the stars. Maybe you'll like to pretend that every meteor is a falling star because you have a lot to wish for. Maybe you enjoyed the movie Armageddon and your destructive imagination could use a good visual.
Sebagai seorang penggangguran yang selalu sibuk mencari kegiatan, hari ini saya ikutan acara Workshop Peta Hijau Jakarta. Sebenernya sih ini juga karena diajak sama kakakku yang notabene adalah salah satu kordinator pembuatan peta ini.
Workshop yang semula direncanakan akan mulai jam 9 mengalami sedikit kemunduran khas orang Indonesia jadi jam 9.30.
Pada acara ini kita dikasih pengantar mengenai GreenMap dan juga rencana pembuatan peta hijau Jakarta. Peta ini rencananya bertemakan tentang transportasi ramah lingkungan. Jadi...berdasarkan rute transjakarta, KRL dan bike lane akan dibuat daerah-daerah yang memiliki potensi untuk melakukan kegiatan yang environmental friendly. Kegiatan ini bersifat volunteer. Jadi siapa aja boleh ikut dan memberikan kontribusi.
Salah satu acara di workshop ini adalah berlatih membuat peta hijau dengan ikon-ikon yang ada di daerah monas.
Two weeks ago we just lost our beloved cousin. She was such a loving and caring person and only 28 years old. She died because of bleeding caused by misabortion. The blood can’t stop because she got placenta accreta. Final diagnose just come out last week.
This is a little bit about placenta accreta that I would like to share with all of you. Hope it will be a good information.
Placenta accreta is a severe obstetric complication involving an abnormal superficial attachment of the placenta to the myometrium (the middle layer of theuterine wall). Usually placenta will attach to endometrium (inner layer of the uterine wall). There are three forms of placenta accreta, distinguishable by the depth of penetration.
The placenta usually detaches from the uterine wall relatively easily, but women that encounter placenta accreta during childbirth are at great risk of haemorrhageduring its removal. This commonly requires surgery to stem the bleeding and fully remove the placenta, and in severe forms can often lead to a hysterectomy or be fatal. It is reported to have a mortality rate around 7% and is the most common indication for birth-related hysterectomy.
Placenta accreta affects approximately 1 in 2,500 pregnancies.
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is an arbovirus, of the genus, Alphavirus, that is transmitted to humans by virus-carrying Aedesmosquitoes. There have been recent outbreaks of CHIKV associated with severe morbidity. CHIKV causes an illness with symptoms similar to dengue fever. CHIKV manifests itself with a prolonged arthralgic disease that affects the joints of the extremities. The acute febrile phase of the illness lasts only two to five days. The pain associated with CHIKV infection of the joints persists for weeks or months.
SIGN AND SYMPTOMS
The incubation period of Chikungunya disease is from two to four days. Symptoms of the disease include a fever up to 39 °C (102.2 °F), a petechial ormaculopapular rash of the trunk and occasionally the limbs, and arthralgia or arthritis affecting multiple joints. Other nonspecific symptoms can includeheadache, conjunctival injection, and slight photophobia. Typically, the fever lasts for two days and then ends abruptly. However, other symptoms, namely joint pain, intense headache, insomnia and an extreme degree of prostration last for a variable period; usually for about 5 to 7 days. Patients have complained of joint pains for much longer time periods depending on their age.
