Pneumonia in Children video
No matter how parents try to weather dress their children, but to protect against colds is still not always possible.In the fall and early winter children are often sick, and in the classroom sometimes empty desks.Some students miss a lot.For example, Sergei, again it is not in the class.The teacher asks his friends to see him, to know what happened, tell us that we are given, and that in fact lag behind ...
House about Sergei say cold to him and sticks.Classmates are at it often, together with their homework.But, when this time, as usual, the guys got a call at the door, on their doorstep is not allowed.It turned out that Sergei pneumonia, and the doctor said that he can not let the guys, they can get infected ...
pneumonia contagious disease?Such a statement seems strange, but it's true.The illness, which in the past were dying quite a few people, and now delivers a lot of trouble is long and hard.Unfortunately, until now, many parents and educators do not conside
the dangers that brings with pneumonia, warned one of the largest Soviet scientists Professor Mikhail Maslov, "On the pneumonia should be looked upon as contagious disease is easily transmitted from one child to another."That's why at the first suspicion is necessary to isolate a sick child from healthy children of brothers and sisters.In addition, conduct a thorough disinfection.
not in any family quite seriously to the ordinary respiratory infections, catarrh of the upper respiratory tract.Meanwhile, weakened respiratory colds - is fertile ground for pathogens pneumonia (pneumococci, streptococci and other bacteria, and viruses), they enter the lungs from the air we breathe, when communicating with the patient at close range.Danger pick up an infection increases especially in those days, when the frequent fluctuations in atmospheric pressure, when it's cold and damp outside.In such weather even a slight cooling of the body can lead to disease pneumonia - primarily weakened children with rickets, diathesis and other ailments that reduce the body's defenses growing and creating increased susceptibility to germs and viruses, the perpetrators of pneumonia.Children who do not have other related diseases, with good care can be treated at home, and in other cases of pneumonia hospitalization is necessary.
Pneumonia in children is dangerous not only because it affects the lungs.The process is usually drawn in the whole organism, it disrupted the activities of many important organs and central nervous system.And so the goal of treatment - not only eliminate hotbeds of inflammation, restore normal functioning of the respiratory system, but also to normalize the activity of all the other vital body systems.And further: not only treat and finish the cure to the end, but also improve a child, make it possible to immune to weather fluctuations, to colds.
treat and finish the cure is difficult.Pneumonia takes place soon.Sometimes, more than one week it will be before you can say it is a question on the amendment.A little more time - and the baby seems to be quite a good feeling.But this impression is deceptive.Suppose that there is no longer coughing and wheezing, and normal temperature, and a great appetite.But any doctor overseeing the course of the disease, say, the improvement can not be considered a sign of full recovery, even if the process in the lungs had stopped.This is not always the parents understand.They hurry rather take the baby from the hospital as soon as the thermometer drops below 37 degrees.And in home conditions at normal temperature and absence of cough parents often no longer follow the doctor's advice, do not even allow the patient injections, do not drive it, when necessary, on the procedures in the clinic.And the child is undertreated.For this reason, children of all ages are protracted and recurrent pneumonia.This chronic disease has a bad effect on the physical development of the child and, of course, on school success.And in the high school age, it even leads to disability.
I must say, the most important obstacle to any kind of infection, including pneumonia, is the ability of the human body to resist disease.We have not given much thought about the fact that the entire program of physical training of children and that part of it which is recommended for families, and one that is carried out in the kindergarten and school, just and aims to improve and strengthen the defenses of the body of the child.
