Blood pressure harm from smoke 'may explain cot death'
 

Smoke exposure during pregnancy damages a baby's blood pressure control, which may explain why such babies' risk of cot death is higher, say experts.

Maternal smoking remains one of the biggest risk factors for cot death.
A team at Sweden's Karolinksa Institute found smoke-exposed babies had abnormal surges in blood pressure, even when sleeping undisturbed in their cots.
These surges put extra demand on the heart, making it pump faster and harder, the journal Hypertension says.
The study suggests damage to the circulation may be a factor in sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), although it set out to look at the effects of smoking on the newborn rather than cot death per se.
Dr Gary Cohen and his team studied 36 newborn babies - 17 of whom had mothers who smoked during the pregnancy. When they examined the babies they found the ones that had been exposed to cigarette smoke showed abnormal heart rate and blood pressure responses.
And these abnormal responses got worse throughout their first year of life.

Dramatically different
At one week of age the smoke-exposed babies showed abnormally large blood pressure rises as they were lifted up from lying down.

By the age of one, the same babies appeared to have adapted to this and now showed abnormally low blood pressure responses to the same posture change.
Usually, when a person stands the heart rate increases and the blood vessels tighten, raising blood pressure slightly, to keep up the blood flow to the heart and brain.

Dr Cohen said: "Babies of smokers have evidence of persistent problems in blood pressure regulation that start at birth and get worse over time.
"This study reveals for the first time that early life exposure to tobacco can lead to long-lasting reprogramming of the infant blood pressure control mechanism." 

He said this might explain why babies of women who smoke are at increased risk of cot death.
"We have known for some time that there is a cardiovascular element to sudden infant death.
"It's not just breathing, but blood pressure control and heart rate control.

"This is another piece of the jigsaw." He plans to continue to study the babies as they grow up to see if the damage is lasting and whether it leads to problems, such as high blood pressure, in later life.
Professor George Haycock, scientific adviser for the Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (FSID), said: "The hypothesis presented here is highly plausible and agrees with work from other research groups.

"FSID's top piece of advice remains, cut smoking in pregnancy - fathers too, and don't let anyone smoke in the same room as your baby." Experts say a third of cot deaths could be avoided if mothers-to-be did not smoke.

Janet Fyle, Professional Policy Advisor at the Royal College of Midwives, said: "These findings support what we know; that smoking during pregnancy can harm the developing foetus. "The RCM would urge pregnant women who smoke to seek advice and support from their midwife about stopping smoking, for the benefit of their own long-term health.
"This would also benefit the health of their child."

 RISK MANAGEMENT

Risk is the probability that a loss may or may not occur. Risk management involves the identification, assessment and quantifying business risks and then after the analysis taking measures to control, reduces and potentially eliminates them. Risk management is a key discipline in Business and financial industry. Few organizations today would make any major decisions concerning new projects without first assessing the risks involved.

Nature of the work

The primary duty of a risk manager is to safeguard an organization, its customers, reputation, assets and the interests of stakeholders by identifying and managing all threats and risks to the achievement of its business objectives. This often involves risk financing including insurance purchase. Duties vary considerably with the nature of the organization and the actual risks it faces, but there are common principles, skills and activities that guide the function.

Risk Managers

·        Design, develop and implement rules and procedures to mitigate the risks

·        Manage the process of identifying and assessing the risks affecting the business

·        Oversee, and in some areas implement, the plan of risk control actions (e.g. purchase of insurance or other risk financing options, health and safety measures, liaison with regulators, business continuity plans)

·        Monitor, evaluate and challenge the organization’s success

Organize appropriate risk reporting, internally and externally               

The jobs may be classified into three main categories.

1.    Public or Private Sector permanent job

The role of those working in the public or private sector is to make decisions, with others, relating to the financing and control of risks for a specific group, company or organization.

2.    Risk Management Advisors

Risk Management Advisers work with companies to advise, which don’t have in-house risk management resources, on preparing and implementing their strategies.

3.    Risk Specialists

Risk Specialists are usually involved in improving risk standards. They work with the risk manager or consultant in key areas such as fire, security or health and safety. For this type of jobs, you need even greater specialist knowledge and skills and, almost certainly, a qualification in your chosen field.

Assalam-O-Alaikum!
Friends, hope you all are doing well.
A few days back, I happened to accompany my friend to a mall. The escalator wasn’t functioning so we had to use stairs to get to upper floors. My friend is quite over weight and hence did not find it a pleasant thing to do. But since, it was she who had to shop, so she had no choice but to use stairs. As she ascended the stairs, she loudly kept grumbling about pain in her legs and aches in her joints.  A slim, smart lady was also going upstairs. On hearing the non-stop complaining of my fatso buddy, the lady intercepted us when we reached the next floor. She offered her mineral water bottle to my friend who was by then out-of-breath. We sat on the nearby bench and got into chit chat with the lady. She told my friend that climbing stairs is indeed a very healthy exercise for her, indeed for every one. She explained that while we all do understand the benefits of regular exercise but most of us often neglect it. We see the fatigue but can’t see the strengthening of the soul and spirit that comes after exercise. We notice the tiredness but fail to see the avoidance of the decay and disease as a result of the bearing of this pain of exercise.
Till then, I did find sleep far more comfortable than the pain of getting out of bed early morning to jog and hop, but as the lady talked to us, my mind was convinced about the importance of regular exercise. So was with my pal. By the end of the conversation, my friend was fully convinced about the virtues of climbing stairs as means to exercise your limbs and body.
When we climbed stairs further to reach the next floor, I could see the difference in my friend’s behavior. Yes, the toil was still exhausting her but she was willingly bearing the pain because she understood the good it was doing to her.
I noticed how understanding makes a tremendous difference in bearing the pain. It is very much applicable to one’s life’s situations also.
When you are made to bear any pain, if you realize the good it does to you, you will not complain about it. Once you understand the purpose, the pain will be tolerated in peace. And when you start seeing the fruits of your labor, the pain becomes a distant memory.   
So friends, remember, 'Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.'
Till we meet next,

Wa-alikum-us- salam
