This seemed to me that this manual is passed from one family to another, though a little on the principle of broken telephone, where each added something of their own. In the intensive care unit where I worked had a couple of weeks without admission of patients with burns, mostly somewhere near eighty percent were children under the age of three years. Probably due to the fact that their unconscious actions were compounded by the stupidity of adults. The main mechanism associated with injury was, of course , boiling water. What relatives did the children put in a very hot bath, poured a kettle regarding boiling water, poured borscht, soups, compotes, accidentally pushed the boiling jam and so on. All this gravity just to name a few. But this time I can’t tell you how to avoid burns. In the end, not in every case, it was possible to blame someone, accidents also, unfortunately, happen. The most idiotic happens then. Instead give the child adequate assistance and to bring to the hospital, and it was easy to finish. With adults we don’t always come, they’re probably kicking when it hurts. Children can’t – and so they are in a terrible shock involving pain and just not aware of the actions of adults. A variety of secret methods of first aid for burns, passed on from mouth to mouth is simply amazing. I’ve treated the burns up until the ambulance arrived: vegetable oil, toothpaste, detergent, urine, fat of some animals, eggs, sour cream and remember. Of course all this greatly aggravates the condition of the child. Be made to feel worse with severe pain shock, I thought, maybe only a sophisticated sadist, but it was close people. Sometimes such assistance children died, in the best case cost of multiple plastic surgeries. Although do basic first aid and the situation is many times would be better. With burns you just need to cool the wound for possible running water, cover with a clean damp cloth, if possible to give pain medication and immediately to the hospital. If the kid has a very large area can burn should not be cooled, just cover or wrap with wet sheets and immediately in the ambulance or the hospital. And if this article helps even one kid will assume that he wrote not in vain.
Anonymously. Boiling. In medicine for a long time, worked m/s, now a doctor. And how do I hate the narrow-minded attitude to honey.staff! Or there are doctors from God, the saints, or Konovalov – between them there is no middle. And most importantly, this assessment depends solely on the subjective perception of the patient (in […]
And I, if I may, I want to speak on the topic of mode of operation of the different institutions. In my case medical. Terribly sick of the fact that some specialists just don’t get caught because they operate on a standard schedule — on weekdays from 9 to 6 (and sometimes up to five). […]
Hospital is a sad place. Here every day are faced with human pain, misery and often death. That is why the medical people cynical. If you take to heart the suffering of each patient – and that’s crazy long. But there were stories that were getting through even the most stale of nurses with four […]
Interesting case, it occurred over 20 years ago when CT and MRI are still not heard. Male, 46 years old, brought from the psychiatric clinic, which came 2 days ago.
