When can patients resume their activities after aortic aneurysm repair surgery using deep hypothermic circulatory arrest technique?

Surgical approach?: The incision used will dictate activity rather than the use of dhca. I would assume you had a sternotomy (through the breastbone). You should lift no more than 5-10# for 2-3 months until the underlying bone heals, after which you should be able to resume normal activity. Have this discussion with your surgeon who should outline the plan for return to full activity. ...Read more

Difference between auto erotic asphyxilation and cross leg orgasm by holding breadth?

Sex practices: Auto erotic asphyxiation usually entails some external, mechanical means of preventing breathing. Very dangerous.

Much safer also as you can always breath when you want. It you pass out, ok...you will breath again. ...Read more

Pros/cons of c-section vs. assisted vaginal delivery? Baby persistently locked in posterior position, estimated 8lbs+.

Depends: That is a decision that would need to be made in the moment. Many women can deliver vaginally with no problem from the occiput posterior position. If the baby can not be delivered with pushing then options of forceps, vacuum and c section should be considered. The size of the baby, the shape of the pelvis, the position of head and the experience of the doctor are all important considerations ...Read more

An infant born premature through C-section who never cried; mri: http://bit.Ly/12eymz7 which says profound hypoxic ischaemic injury. How to deal?

No easy answer: So profoundly sorry to here about your baby. There are never any easy answers here.
