Not long ago, a heartbreaking thing happened in Zibo, Shandong. A 4-year-old girl, Chenchen, died of an infusion in a private clinic because she had a fever of 37.5 degrees! According to the recollection of her mother, Ms. Tian, Chenchen developed mild fever symptoms at that time and took her to a clinic for treatment. The doctor measured her body temperature to be 37.5°C and prescribed three bottles of diaphragm injections. Before the infusion, Chenchen was still alive and kicking. Unexpectedly, before the first infusion was completed, her body temperature began to rise, her hands and feet were cold, and she was afraid of the cold. After finishing three sling bottles, Ms. Tian carried Chenchen home: \”At that time, the child had no strength to walk. When he got home, he said he wanted to sleep.\” Ms. Tian told reporters that Chenchen lay down for about 30 minutes and suddenly suddenly Bleeding from nose and mouth, purple lips. Even though 120 was called immediately and rushed to Zibo Central Hospital, the doctor still regretfully told the parents: \”The child has no heartbeat.\” Source | Qilu Evening News After the incident broke out, many netizens said they could not let go. With a low fever like 37.5℃, does it really need an infusion? As the most common treatment method for Chinese people, is infusion really life-threatening? With this question, let’s take a fresh look at it. Infusion, what on earth is going on? / The proliferation of \”bottle forests\”, three major misunderstandings about infusions / In China, infusions are given as soon as a cold occurs, and infusions are given as soon as inflammation occurs, which seems to have become a fixed procedure. Regardless of adults or children, infusion is as common as eating and sleeping whenever they are sick. Some people describe that the hospital\’s infusion area is always overcrowded, with hanging tubes one after another, like a \”bottle forest.\” According to statistics from the China Safe Injection Alliance, there were 10.4 billion bottles of medical infusion in my country in 2009, with an average of 8 bottles per person, much higher than the international standard of 2.5 to 3.3 bottles. Many patients suffer from \”infusion disease\”. They believe too much in the efficacy of infusion, and have caused various misunderstandings due to long-term blind infusion. ① Infusion = Get better quickly. Many people think that “you can get better quickly by taking a diaphragm injection.” Therefore, no matter what the disease is, they want to rely on infusion to speed up the treatment. In fact, most human diseases are incurable! There is a question on Zhihu: What are the diseases that cannot be cured? Tian Jishun, medical director of Dr. Dingxiang, gave us a good popular science: \”In medicine, the vast majority of diseases are incurable, and the causes of some are not clear, let alone curable. The concept of \’clinical cure\’ is just The disease is under control. Human beings have a strong ability to self-regulate. Some diseases are actually self-healing, that is, they get better on their own. The most typical one is \’cold\’.\” Many people think that colds can be cured, but in fact, colds can be cured. The human body heals itself. The medicines you take can only relieve the symptoms of colds but cannot truly cure them. Therefore, most of the treatments in modern medicine are aimed at symptoms rather than the real causes. It can only relieve symptoms to varying degrees, but cannot fundamentally solve the problem. Like our common common flu, the course of the disease is generally 5-7 days. For those with poor resistance, the course of the disease will be longer. Even if you take injections and take medicine, it will take at least a week to recover. The fact that the drug is healed quickly by infusion is only a superficial phenomenon, because the medicinal solution is directly input into the blood vessels and is directly absorbed by the body as the blood circulates, creating the illusion of \”rapid recovery\”. with thisOn the contrary, adverse reactions caused by real infusions pose greater risks to patients. The 2014 \”National Adverse Drug Reaction Monitoring Annual Report\” shows that among the administration methods that cause adverse drug reactions, 58.7% come from intravenous infusion. Common reactions include fever, rash, itching, swelling and other allergic reactions. In severe cases, shock or even death may occur. Some people believe that infusion is equivalent to a minor surgery and is recognized as the most dangerous method of drug administration. In many Western countries, infusion is a treatment method only for emergency patients and critically ill patients. Whether to infuse should be determined by factors such as the patient\’s clinical manifestations, the characteristics of the drug, and the physician\’s comprehensive judgment. Only patients with dysphagia, severe malabsorption, etc. should choose intravenous injection. If the patient\’s gastrointestinal function is normal, oral medications should be the first choice. ② The infusion speed can be adjusted at will. The infusion can take as little as one hour and as long as four or five hours. It is really a torment. Many people adjust the infusion speed at will in order to rush for time. In January 2017, Mr. Yu from Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province went to the hospital for infusion treatment due to otitis media. According to the normal speed, it would take at least an hour to complete the infusion, but Mr. Yu was bored sitting in the outpatient hall and wanted to go home early for dinner, so he increased the infusion speed on his own. Half an hour later, Mr. Yu felt weak, his heart beat rapidly, and he felt dizzy. Fortunately, the nurse arrived in time to remove the infusion set and move him to bed to rest. After 20 minutes, Mr. Yu\’s body finally returned to normal. In life, most people are unaware of the dangers of infusion too fast, and even think that whether the infusion speed should be increased depends entirely on whether time is tight. However, there are also a few people who believe that the infusion should be as slow as possible and generally do not adjust it on their own. In fact, this approach is extremely harmful, because each patient\’s constitution is different, and the doctor will specifically instruct the nurse to adjust the infusion speed to this patient. Moreover, different drugs and different physical conditions will lead to different infusion speeds. Many patients do not have this kind of medical knowledge and accelerate themselves, which will cause some clinical harm. A patient once adjusted the infusion speed by himself and completed the two-hour infusion in 40 minutes. Two hours later, his whole body convulsed, he foamed at the mouth, and he almost died. \”Source | Xunyang Evening News Under normal circumstances, the infusion rate for adults is 40-60 drops/minute. For children and the elderly due to incomplete organ development or reduced function, the infusion rate should be slowed down. For children, the infusion rate is 20-40 drops/minute. The elderly should not exceed 40 drops/minute. The infusion speed cannot be adjusted by yourself. If it is too fast, it will easily increase the burden on the heart and cause adverse reactions such as heart failure or pulmonary edema. However, it does not mean that slower is better. The infusion needs to be adjusted according to the condition. Speed. So, if you are really in a hurry, you might as well ask the nurse: \”Can this speed be adjusted?\” ” ③ Infusion is a safe and reliable way to supplement nutrition. Every time the seasons change, patients with acute gastroenteritis are suffering from vomiting and diarrhea every day, and they feel that their bodies are being hollowed out. Infusion has become a common way to supplement nutrition and water. But if You think that it is just a glucose injection, which is very safe and has no toxic side effects, but you are totally wrong! A scholar once treated a corpse who often had intravenous infusions during his lifetime.The body was dissected and it was found that there were more than 500 granulomas and a large number of capillary blockages in the lungs alone. After research and analysis, it was found that the seemingly clear and pollution-free hanging bottle liquid contained a large number of dust particles, glass shavings, rubber particles, activated carbon particles, drug crystals, etc. During infusion, these particles will enter your blood and deposit in your heart, lungs, kidneys and other organs, just like there is garbage blocked in the water pipes. Over time, sediments can cause a variety of diseases, such as microvascular embolism, emphysema, pulmonary sclerosis, etc., and in severe cases, can even cause cancer. In addition, infusion requires skin puncture. If the medicinal solution is contaminated during production or storage, or the skin at the puncture site is not disinfected, viruses and bacteria may enter the body. It may cause local inflammation in mild cases, or in severe cases, the pathogens may spread throughout the body through the blood, causing sepsis, which may even be life-threatening. /You can take medicine without injections, but infusion has become a chronic killer/The World Health Organization once proposed the treatment principle of \”You can take medicine without taking medicine, you can take it orally without injection, and you can have intramuscular injection without intravenous injection\”. If the condition is serious, the doctor can decide whether to receive infusion treatment based on the condition after diagnosis and treatment. But this medical principle is implemented in reverse in reality. Surveys show that more than 70% of infusions in my country are unnecessary, and 90% of hospitalized patients receive infusion therapy. However, more than 95% of these patients are unaware of the risks and hazards of misuse of infusions and unsafe injections. According to statistics, more than 400,000 people die every year in my country due to unsafe injections. How many people always regard infusion as a panacea. As everyone knows, it will make the body worse and worse. Not long ago, Ms. Ding, a 32-year-old Jinan citizen, suffered from influenza, and many people around her were infected. As the Spring Festival approaches, it is the coldest period of the year, and diseases such as colds and respiratory infections have also begun to enter a period of high incidence. What is different from the past is that this wave of influenza seems to be particularly difficult to deal with, and many people take medicine and injections but it doesn\’t work. \”I have been receiving infusions for three consecutive days. I still have recurring fevers, coughs, and hoarseness. It is so uncomfortable.\” The number of sick children is twice that of adults. Ms. Ding said that after returning from a business trip last week, she suddenly had a fever of 38°C and a sore throat. , sore all over. Although the body\’s resistance is not very good at ordinary times, and I often catch colds in the past, I can get better with just one infusion every time. This time, I took injections for 3 days, but still no improvement. In the infusion room of the hospital, the patients were packed. According to the nurse on duty, \”This wave of influenza affects both adults and children. Children are about twice as likely as adults. There are 200-300 patients coming to the outpatient clinic for infusions a day.\” \”Some people have been coming for infusions for more than ten days. , it’s still not good.” In medicine, when drugs, liquids, etc. enter the human body, they are usually metabolized by the liver and excreted by the kidneys. Long-term infusion will not only cause damage to the liver and kidneys, but may also suppress the immune system and weaken the body\’s normal defense function. As a result, the disease becomes increasingly difficult to recover from, and in the end, it even reaches the point where there is no cure. Therefore, constant infusion is equivalent to a slow suicide. /Excessive infusion is a breeding ground for \”super bacteria\”/In addition to the harm to the individual\’s body, the serious consequences of excessive infusion are far fromBeyond our imagination. In October 2010, the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported three cases of superbug infection. Among them, 2 cases were newborn babies in Ningxia, and 1 case was an 83-year-old man in Fujian. What are superbugs? No antibiotics are effective against it, and once encountered, there is only death. The emergence of superbugs is precisely due to the overuse of antibiotics, which causes bacteria to quickly develop drug resistance. For example, in the past, a patient could survive with dozens of units of penicillin, but now millions of units of penicillin have no effect on the same condition. What’s even more frightening is that it takes 10 years for an antibiotic to be developed and popularized, while bacteria generally mutate in less than 2 years. In other words, once superbugs spread, the research and development of antibiotics will simply not be able to keep up. At that time, we will be faced with a disaster! Some experts predict that if the abuse of antibiotics continues, a common cold may kill someone in the future. The words of Schwartländer, the representative of the World Health Organization in China, have sounded the alarm for us: \”Imagine that in 20 years, routine surgeries such as caesarean sections will cause bacterial infections because there are no effective antibiotics. We will go back to a cold. Or a difficult period when a single wound may lead to death.\” / Seek medical treatment in a civilized manner and be a qualified patient / It is said that illness comes like a mountain and goes away like a thread, but few patients nowadays can understand this sentence. Chinese people have a fixed mindset, that is, they must get better after going to the hospital. There is even a phenomenon that if you don’t give me an infusion, I will complain about you and complain about your medical skills. As a result, many doctors are under pressure and have to give patients directly. Infusion. I remember when I was in college, there were always classmates complaining about the poor quality of the school hospital. One of the big reasons was that doctors basically didn’t prescribe infusions. When they enter society with this concept, they become unqualified patients. Although there is a serious lack of medical knowledge, I always feel that I am well-informed. I rely on \”Baidu\’s successful doctors\” or my own \”wild imagination\” to treat diseases, and selectively follow doctors\’ orders. This kind of behavior of pitting one\’s own ignorance against the professionalism of doctors is not only making fun of one\’s own life, but also shows great disrespect for doctors. To put an end to excessive infusion, in addition to relying on policy regulations and doctors\’ consciousness, more importantly, we also need to rely on our civilized medical treatment and being a qualified patient. ① You don’t need to be as professional as a doctor to learn medical knowledge by yourself, but in order to prevent and treat diseases, you still need to learn certain medical knowledge. For example, understand the prevention and treatment measures for common diseases, daily medication rules, and the timing of medical treatment, etc. ② Follow hospital rules. Patients are not sick gods, and doctors are not service personnel. Every regular hospital will have a complete scientific and rigorous medical system. Consciously complying with hospital rules is the most efficient way of treatment. ③ State the condition as needed. Due to various reasons, many patients conceal their condition intentionally or unintentionally, causing doctors to misdiagnose. We must be clear that doctors do not have sharp eyes and cannot see the lesions at a glance. For the sake of your health, it is better to state the condition truthfully. ④ Strictly obey medical instructions. As we all know, it takes at least 10 years to become a qualified doctor from a medical student. Every word the doctor said at the consultation table condensed the unity of the medical community.crystal. As patients, we just need to remember one thing and obey strictly! ⑤ Respect medical staff. Doctors are also ordinary people. Especially in large hospitals, the heavy volume of medical admissions every day can easily make people feel bad. When you encounter medical staff with inappropriate attitudes, please show them sufficient respect and understanding. After all, medical skills have nothing to do with attitude. Finally, I sincerely hope that everyone can understand medicine with a positive and objective attitude, seek medical treatment in a civilized manner, change daily bad living habits, and have a healthy and strong body!
