"YOUR DAY WAS GOOD ..." Author: Rodolfo Teixeira.

"I do not know if his love of teaching supplanted it reached full satisfaction in practicing medicine in his office across the street from Help. Year after year heard, addressed, treated, counseled thousands of people. Their presence in hospitals of Bahia was a constant until the end of their physical possibilities. Never declined to practice medicine at home. Only someone who has this type of apostolate is that it can assess the validity and scope of work of a physician who runs the practice. There are valid reasons that could separate the sick from your doctor, so united by the feelings and emotions. The first requirement that must be demanded of a good clinician is to be patient and simple, then, is to listen, to comprehend the human condition and be compassionate with those who suffer, is whether that technology is necessary but not a priority. Ethics is the shadowy mysteries of life and soul of its manifestations. Herein comes down the true meaning of the medical art that is so depending on the culture of the spirit.
Adriano Pondé adjusted to these principles. Humanist, like many of his generation. He had the innate taste for the arts and literature, which, after all, in his professional demise, in the autumn years, he hosted and played down the days. Member of the Academy of Letters of Bahia, where he remained loyal to the same virtues that made him respected and applauded education and the craft of medicine.
He was a founder of the Academy of Medicine of Medicine of Bahia. Occupied the chair 24, whose patron is another stellar figure: Gonçalo Moniz de Aragao.
Adriano Pondé was a past president of the Medical Association Bahia, a position he held with the usual zeal and competence.
Reflect the life of Adriano Azevedo Pond and it occurs to me to conclude that "your day has been good and that when night fell, the night with all its charms, found the field plowed, clean the house, the table set. With everything in its place "

"So it was extremely zealous in preparing lectures. It worried him, above all, the constant updating, the best sources of material that classes had to successive years of the last doctor. For that, he was always among teachers that the expense of his own pocket books and many journal subscriptions of its specialty. Irregularity (I could tell, irresponsibility) on acquisition of specialized libraries. Teachers more aware of the importance of training up to date - including Adriano occupied immovable position - felt obliged to pay with their meager wages to purchase a vast bibliography. The conservation of these books and magazines, tools essential to our work, is becoming increasingly expensive in modern life, the space requirement for the care and prophylaxis of various "diseases" they are exposed, particularly when kept in the home environment and not properly heated in institutional libraries and in the care of specialized personnel. How Adriano preceded the era of Xerox and the Internet, the editors, the wonders of the sensational and designed printers connected to computers, was for him - and his aides, a constant struggle to obtain and provide reproductions or microfilm reading machines that by more sophisticated, always left to be desired. Only the older ones know how new technologies have made it all easier for scholars dedicated to their work. The youth of today to have found such low-cost advantages do not always realize the immense tenacity required of those who preceded them, when they wanted to keep up with the scientific publications or find copies of publications older.
Hadrian's concern with the current school went further. The restless temperament led him to seek what is more advanced with respect to audio-visual methods, long before they become routine. So much for the lessons to the presentation of his own research, and material handling equipment acquired projection carefully chosen. Remember that all this occurred when the poverty of local institutions was much greater than today.
In spite of much that I learned the discipline of clinical medicine as a disciple of Hadrian, the biggest cause of my admiration for his performance as a teacher in a colossal effort that is devoted to clinical research, even when they were extremely precarious means at our disposal. What will your best in these works date from before the operation of the Hospital and was mainly the old Santa Izabel environment of the 1930s and 1940s. Very few of his colleagues were the chair he succeeded in producing at the same time, work of comparable density, for example, the studies on myocardial infarction and Chagas disease in our land ... "




"Another aspect of the personality of Professor. Adriano Pondé was represented by his insatiable intellectual curiosity. It was an eternal apprentice. There were thought to own any real knowledge. When predicted that English would become universal and that the hegemony of French would be overthrown, he decided to study English, and soon began, with his youthful enthusiasm, to speak without fear of mistakes early and normal. He said at the time that those who knew no English, only used one hemisphere.
In his specialty, cardiology, scientific advances were continuous and extensive. And he said he was always learning and updating and monitoring what was happening in every other study centers in cardiology. His thesis was about competition myocardial infarction. At a time when there was no Internet Bireme, managed, in a Homeric effort, bringing together what had been done worldwide on the topic and published a thesis that became famous for the amount of information provided.
Another important quality possessed Prof. Adriano Pondé: he was an administrator genetically well structured.
Dedicated to work, where he found the realization of his creative impetus, few people knew how to distribute your time and do everything he did with total concentration of his thoughts. "

"One time I was listening for the chest of a patient admitted, when the master quietly came up to me and, almost babbling, not to sound grandiloquent, guided my stethoscope to interescapulovertebrais spaces, then for the subscapular and basal Finally the lateral infra-axillary, where I could actually find the murmurs he sought. Minutes later, the hallway, he told me - "Gusmao, there, over the spinous process of the scapula is not heard nothing or almost nothing."
Another time, he called all the interns and residents of Ward careful auscultation of rales basal crackles in the typical case of lobar pneumonia. I well remember his words, glosses past seven - "Listen well, make the hearing; that crackle in the alveoli is typical of pneumonic exudate; seems the thin crack of coals in a campfire, is unmistakable." And he smiled satisfied, happy with learning of the disciples, knowing that never forget about those crept pathognomonic. And it did.
In another opportunity, since medical post-graduate degree in Nephrology, in private practice of the hospital clinic, was watching a serious surgical patient to another exponent of Medicine of Bahia, Professor. Wenceslas Pires da Veiga, when the presence of Professor Wenceslaus Pires da Veiga, when the presence of Professor Adriano, as a Cardiologist emeritus, was necessary. The patient in shock and did not respond to therapeutic maneuvers tested by me, when the master, with great simplicity, he suggested doubling or tripling the dose of aminodopaminérgica that flowed through the serum therapy. I answered him ready, pair watch, almost immediately, the situation changes. As we contemplate together the rapid transformation of cyanotic nail bed and the rocks of the fingertips, in auspicious pink tone, while the levels of blood pressure rose, pale and coldness of the extremities warmed up, smiled quietly to each other and he said: - "It's fantastic, just fantastic." Oozed old teacher with the latest wonders of vascular therapy. It seemed drunk with a child the magic of his toy.
It was thus, in my view, Professor Adriano Pondé. A simple man, affable, accessible, full of geniuses. Of those who age like wine, getting better ... "
