Approximately 65 ante natal patients and 24 patients from the pediatric age group were examined by our team from Mumbai. Among 65 ANC examined most prevalent condition found was anemia, with approx. 90% of the patients coming with hemoglobin ranging from 6.5 to 8.8. Further management of these patients based on the standard clinical practice was decided. Further management for patients with gestational hypertension(2), diabetes mellitus (1), adolescent pregnancy(1), precious pregnancy (1), previous LSCS (2) was decided; patient, ANMs, ASHAs and PHC Medical officers were briefed about the same. Patients requiring specialized care and attention were referred to the designated higher center. It was worth noting despite the lab services and ultrasound being available for free of cost to the patients, patients were not being screened regularly; MOs were explained the need for the same and counseled for making a set protocol to ensure adequate screening and identification of high risk cases. Patients were also counseled regarding methods for family planning.
