Miliary Tuberculosis Presenting as Puerperial Fever
A. Agarwal
Case Reports in Infectious Diseases , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/893515
Abstract: Miliary tuberculosis as a cause of puerperial fever is extremely rare. It is a serious illness with nonspecific clinical manifestations and typical chest radiographic findings may not be seen until late in the course of the disease. It is often associated with maternal immunocompromised status. Here, we report a case of miliary tuberculosis in a nonimmunocompromised mother presenting as fever of unknown origin in immediate puerperium. Prolonged workup of eight weeks led to the diagnosis of miliary tuberculosis as the cause of postpartum fever that responded well to antituberculous drugs.

Noninvasive mechanical ventilation with BiPAP therapy for comatose exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease through an endotracheal tube: is it justified?

Abstract: Noninvasive mechanical ventilation with BiPAP therapy for comatose exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease through an endotracheal tube: is it justified? Letter (1156) Total Article Views Authors: Esquinas A, Agarwal R Published Date December 2012 Volume 2012:7 Pages 807 - 809 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/COPD.S38179 Received: 15 September 2012 Accepted: 28 October 2012 Published: 03 December 2012 Antonio Esquinas,1 Ritesh Agarwal2 1Intensive Care Unit, Hospital Morales Meseguer, Murcia, Spain; 2Department of Pulmonary Medicine, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India We read with interest the paper by Rawat et al1 related to the role of bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) delivered via endotracheal tube in unconscious patients suffering from acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in a real-world situation. Although the authors provide some justification for the use of BiPAP through an endotracheal tube, we believe that this technique is fraught with complications and should not be routinely employed. In fact, three patients failed BiPAP therapy, two patients received conventional invasive ventilation, and one patient failed to respond to BiPAP. Thus, almost 30% of patients either failed or showed no evidence for benefit of BiPAP. Further, the authors provide no data on the amount of leakage that was present while administering BiPAP therapy. The authors also do not provide details on whether the nurses/chest therapist administered intermittent manual bag ventilation. Ideally, the authors should have referred the patients on manual bag ventilation to another public health center where facilities for invasive ventilation are available free of cost.

Oscillation Criteria for Second-Order Forced Dynamic Equations with Mixed Nonlinearities
Agarwal RaviP,Zafer A
Advances in Difference Equations , 2009,
Abstract: We obtain new oscillation criteria for second-order forced dynamic equations on time scales containing mixed nonlinearities of the form , with , , where is a time scale interval with , the functions are right-dense continuous with , is the forward jump operator, , and . All results obtained are new even for and . In the special case when and our theorems reduce to (Y. G. Sun and J. S. W. Wong, Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications. 337 (2007), 549–560). Therefore, our results in particular extend most of the related existing literature from the continuous case to arbitrary time scale.
Waardenburg's syndrome

Chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae infection and bronchial asthma: Is there a link?
Agarwal A,Chander Y
Indian Journal of Medical Microbiology , 2008,
Abstract: Purpose: Besides well-defined environmental causes, accumulating evidence suggests that respiratory tract infections play an important role in the pathogenesis of asthma. Among these Chlamydia pneumoniae infection has been discussed as possibly inducing the development of asthma. Methods: This study was designed to investigate the presence of anti chlamydial IgG, IgA, and IgM antibodies by ELISA in serum samples of 60 adults with a clinical history of asthma and 100 healthy age and sex matched controls. All the samples positive for Chlamydial genus specific IgG antibodies were then subjected to Chlamydia pneumoniae species specific IgG antibody ELISA. Results: The IgG anti chlamydial antibody-positivity rate in the patients with bronchial asthma (80%) was significantly higher in all age groups than that in the healthy age and sex matched controls (59%). No significant association was observed for IgA and IgM anti chlamydial antibodies. C. pneumoniae species specific IgG antibody seroprevalence was also found to be significantly higher in all age groups in comparison to controls (61.66% vs 38%). Conclusions: Serological evidence of chronic infection with C. pneumoniae was more frequent in patients with asthma compared with control subjects. Our results support the correlation of bronchial asthma and chronic infection with C. pneumoniae in Indian population.

Developing global competitiveness by assessing organized retail productivity using data envelopment analysis
Agarwal, R.,Mehrotra, A.
International Journal of Business Science and Applied Management , 2009,
Abstract: The purpose of this paper was to find out (using Regression, Data Envelopment Analysis and Sensitivity Analysis) how efficiently some of the top organized India retail companies have been performing relative to each other over the years and thereby to identify factors that help increase the efficiency of a retail company. The study was conducted based on the analysis of data downloaded from Prowess database for five Indian retail companies for the time period 2000-2007. The paper is deemed to be helpful to enable Indian retail companies gain a competitive advantage in the face of increased competition being faced in the emerging organized retail sector in India. The findings brought forth Advertising and Marketing expenses as the significant performance determining factors to be paid attention to.
