Here learning is achieved by rigorous thinking (reflecting), using a systematic approach to structure and frame the phenomena being experienced. Emphasis is placed on the definition and classification of abstract ideas and concepts, aiming at precise conceptual categories. (Reference 1)

Rakesh Biswas Madhavi yeh dyspepsia ke causes kahan se mile aur aap ko kaise pata ki yeh vaakai dyspepsia ke causes hain?

Case 2:

Madhavi can you answer by critical appraising the information you shared in your link: these questions: Does the information in your study address a clearly focused question?
Did the study use valid methods to address this question?
Are the valid results of this study important?
Are these valid, important results applicable to my patient or population? I took one look at the information that you shared and felt it didn't.
Madhavi Rawat Yes sir this link is not help us to a perfect answer of this case,

Rakesh Biswas Madhavi what do you mean by "use only in normally eye problems."
Like · Reply · 11 hrs

Madhavi Rawat Means dust allergies, eye makeup harmful effects, & sun light burning in summer.....

Rakesh Biswas Why would you call dust allergies as a normal eye problem? Every problem needs to be addressed perfectly.

Rakesh Biswas Why would you use rose water if it is not better than ordinary water (which brings us back to the beginning of this comment thread as i had suggested ordinary water for eye-burning). smile emoticon

Madhavi Rawat Bcoz if we suffered with normal dust allergy to driving,and when we discontact with dust its subside after some time automatically..

Rakesh Biswas To discontact (that's a nice neologism) with dust we may not need rose-water (ordinary water may suffice) Madhavi?
