In 2002, Catalyst Management Services (CMS) set up a not-for-profit organisation, Catalyst Development Initiatives (CDI), to incubate ideas in development. Swasti was one such idea. Over the next two years, CDI provided institutional framework and guidance to grow Swasti until it could operate independently. Swasti was registered as a not-for-profit society on 15 May, 2004.
Swasti is the Health Catalyst that Strives for 100 million ‘well’thy days for Vulnerable Communities.
Health inequity affects vulnerable communities disparately across the World.
Its persistent nature makes it the World’s most challenging development problem
We at Swasti believe people must be at the centre of health systems for it to effectively work for the poor.
To add “well” thy days to the lives of the World’s poor by 2030, our Glocal multi-disciplinary team co-designs demonstrable and scalable solution models in partnership with communities on the ground and influences policies nationally and internationally.
We Care. Innovate. Demonstrate and Transform to a time when Wellness Becomes “Real” For Vulnerable Communities
BLEEDING AFTER BIRTH .
❤️ It is normal to bleed after you have a baby. The bleeding mainly comes from the area in your womb (uterus) where the placenta was attached, but it can also come from any cuts and tears caused during the birth. .
👉🏻 Bleeding is usually heaviest just after birth and gradually becomes less over the next few hours. .
👉🏻 The bleeding will continue to reduce over the next few days. The colour will change from fresh red to brown over a few weeks. .
👉🏻 This bleeding is called the lochia and should stop by the time your baby is 6 weeks old. .
⭐️ You may notice the bleeding is redder and heavier when you breastfeed. This happens because breastfeeding makes your womb contract. You may also feel cramps similar to period pains.
Isn't a good idea to use tampons until after your 6-week postnatal check because they could increase your chance of getting an infection. .
‼️ If you're losing blood in large clots, tell your midwife. You may need some treatment.
👉🏻 Unfortunately this information is not always told by the health professional, tag your pregnant or postpartum friend that may like to have this information. Let spread knowledge mamas!! ❤️

COME RICONOSCERE UN INFARTO MIOCARDICO ACUTO
Come ben sappiamo dai dati nazionali, le principali cause di morte in Italia sono l’infarto miocardico e le neoplasie.
Ricordiamo che una buona conoscenza dei segni e sintomi caratteristici può contribuire affinché la vita di una persona venga SALVATA. La tempestività è fondamentale in quanto la riuscita di un buon intervento di primo soccorso è inversamente proporzionale al tempo trascorso (golden hour).
I sintomi caratteristici sono:
• Dolore retrosternale che, di solito, si protrae oltre i 20 minuti ed è esacerbato da stress emotivo o sforzi fisici;
• Il dolore , il più delle volte, ha un’irradiazione caratteristica al braccio sinistro e/o al collo.
• Il paziente può riferire anche la presenza di nausea, vomito, dispnea , sudorazione e astenia.
I segni, invece:
• All’elettrocardiogramma vi è un sovraslivellamento del tratto ST (da qui Stemi).
• Da un prelievo ematico, nel siero, è possibile notare che la creatinfosfochinasi (CPK) ed il suo isoenzima (MB) sono aumentati.
• All’RX toracica si evince una possibile presenza di edema polmonare e/o una stasi venosa.
I fattori di rischio dell’infarto miocardico acuto sono molteplici e la maggior parte di questi possono essere eliminati, ad esempio:
• Fumo • Sedentarietà • Stress
• Obesità (più del 30%)
Quindi con una buona prevenzione primaria, atta a potenziare i fattori positivi dei soggetti a rischio, possiamo ridurre i decessi per IMA.

With the first day of fall just around
the corner, medical professionals
are issuing a serious warning as
this year’s flu season arriving
Nurses so don’t forget to
get your flu shot.
Flu is different from a cold because
it usually comes on suddenly &
individuals who are sick with flu
often feel some or all of these symptoms:
* Fever* or feeling feverish/chills.
* Sore throat.
* Runny or stuffy nose.
* Muscle or body aches.
* Fatigue (tiredness)
* Some people may have vomiting
and diarrhea, though this is more
common in children than adults.
Most people who get flu will recover
in a few days to less than two weeks,
but some people will develop
complications (such as pneumonia)
as a result of flu, some of which
can be life-threatening and result in death.
People at High Risk from Flu:
Anyone can get sick with flu
(even healthy people), and
serious problems related to
flu can happen at any age,
but some people are at high
risk of developing serious
if they get sick.
This includes people 65 years
and older, people of any age
with certain chronic medical
conditions (such as asthma,
diabetes, or heart disease), pregnant women and children
younger than 5 years, but
especially those younger
than 2 years old.

I am officially half way through my final placement as a nursing student!! To say I am stoked is an understatement, with everything that was thrown at me 3 weeks ago... I am beyond proud of myself! It’s truly amazing what building resilience can get you through and surprise both yourself and the people around you. It’s been hard, but 3 months from now I’ll be finished my placement, my classes and my final exam... in 3 months I will be so close to my registration and know if I have a graduate position next year. In 3 months I will thank myself for staying strong and pushing through one of the most challenging phases of my life. Keep pushing, in a very short space of time, everything can change and you will thank yourself for what you managed to get through 🎉🥰
This time 1 year ago I spent my birthday wrapping up my last clinical day of my very first clinical rotation (casal 1) it was so bittersweet but I learned so much from my preceptors and the experience! Some clinical basics that I get asked a lot about: - you will have certain weeks blocked for your clinical shifts
- You will not work every day that is blocked you will only work about 5-6 days and they are 12 hr shifts
- These shifts are what your preceptor work you can not ask for certain days or not show up for you assigned clinical you must be available for what is assigned - Sometimes you will get your schedule 1-2in advanced sometimes not until the day before
- Be prepared with a note pad, ask questions and be involved - You are here to perform skills let your clinical director know if your not benefiting from your preceptor or not getting to do your skills - You can change preceptors don’t feel forced to stay with a bad one wgu wants you to feel comfortable and to learn! - You will write about and vlog about your experiences in clinicals and sometimes will have clinical director check ins while your there
This is a fun time in the program learn, have fun and be hands on!
