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.
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
These surges put extra demand on the
heart, making it pump faster and harder, the journal
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.
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
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
would also benefit the health of their child."

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
and implement rules and procedures to mitigate the risks
Manage the process
of identifying and assessing the risks affecting the
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)

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
I noticed how understanding makes a tremendous difference in
bearing the pain. It is very much applicable to one’s life’s
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.'
