Dr Clove said:
When autumn and winter come, children are prone to colds and coughs. Every time Eva is ill, mothers inevitably have a mentality of “less hatred when books are used and cramming everywhere”.
Do you need to go to the hospital immediately when what is in time? Can I see it again at home when I am in what? Should I prepare what medicine? …… Most of the time, anxiety and panic just come from not understanding.
Therefore, Dr. Clove specially prepared such a practical article for everyone, believing that it can give mothers more confidence and less entanglements.
In case of these situations, you need to go to the hospital.
The common cold is very common. It belongs to one’s own disease and does not need to go to the hospital. What we can do is to take good care of the baby when he is ill, to reduce the symptoms as much as possible, and to let the baby smoothly pass the whole course of the disease.
However, if the following situations occur, the mother should take the baby to the hospital immediately:
- Babies whose body temperature exceeds 38 degrees and is less than 3 months old; Fever for more than 5 days, or continuous cough for more than 2 weeks, there is no improvement; Children have asthma, dyspnea, rash on skin or ear pain, etc. When any acute symptoms occur; (Children’s acute rash is caused by fever, which is quite special) When the child’s mental state is very different from normal, such as being particularly depressed or anxious.
Taking Eva to the hospital also requires strategies.
Some mothers are especially uneasy and have to run to the hospital without any problems. However, some mothers are secretive and unwilling to take their children to the hospital.
Doctor clove felt that this may also be due to their ignorance of the medical treatment process. The hospital is not a scourge, and the intimate doctor clove summed up the strategy of taking baby to the hospital for everyone.
What? Do you also need strategies to take Eva to the hospital? Yes, please look below, it is no simpler than fighting monsters!
Strategy 1: The medical department should hang up the right
Babies within one month of birth should be hung up in the Department of Neonatology, and all babies from one month to 18 years old should be under the control of the Department of Pediatrics.
Some children grow tall and big at the age of 13 or 14, but they also belong to the category of pediatrics. Because from a medical point of view, children aged 14 to 18 are physically close to adults, but their physical development has not yet reached the standard of adults, and their psychological age is not mature, and they still belong to children.
The above standards are applicable to general hospitals, and the branches of children’s specialized hospitals are more detailed, which should be discussed separately.
In the Internet era, there are also various ways to register, such as online reservation, App registration, WeChat registration, telephone registration, etc. Parents can try more channels to save time.
Strategy 2: Bring All Past Information
Dr. Clove interviewed several pediatricians before, and they all said that the most rare parents are those who carry comprehensive information and express clearly. This not only saves each other’s time, but also helps doctors to comprehensively analyze the disease and avoid missing important information.
What specific information should you bring?
(1) Cases and test forms: The test forms previously done must be brought with them;
For example, if diseases such as pneumonia occur repeatedly, previous examination reports and diagnosis results should be carried.
All the lists should be sorted out according to classification or chronological order, and should not be thrown to doctors in large quantities.
(2) Vaccination book for babies: This can provide diagnostic basis for doctors, especially for babies who have been vaccinated recently, it is recommended to carry it;
(3) Birth records: Newborns, premature infants and children with certain congenital diseases should also be brought together if there are relevant information such as treatment and diagnosis;
(4) Previous cases: children with chronic diseases;
Strategy 3: Write down the onset process,
I’d like to share a little experience with you. Before seeing a doctor, for example, when in the car or at the door of the clinic, take a few minutes to calm down and carefully recall the onset process of the baby. Simply write down the main points with paper or mobile phone, so that when communicating with the doctor, the situation of omission due to nervousness can be minimized.
The most important issues include:
(1) Age: years and months
(2) The most important conditions of the onset: the most important symptoms, the duration of the experience, the inducement of what, the relief of what, the ups and downs of the disease, and other discomfort in what besides the main symptoms…
(3) Having taken what medicine: take the medicine box with you if you don’t understand, or take photos with your mobile phone;
(4) There have been what diseases before: doctors should be told about the recent occurrence and the heavier ones before.
Strategy 4: Carrying excrement is exquisite.
If it is a baby with diarrhea, don’t use diapers to carry stool. Because diapers have strong absorption capacity, some components in stool will be absorbed, thus affecting the inspection results. You can use fresh-keeping bags or disposable paper cups to store within two hours, and it is best not to be contaminated by the outside world for inspection.
Raiders 5: Small details, not ignored
Bottles, water bottles, diapers, paper towels and other daily necessities should be carried completely. In order to facilitate the doctor’s physical examination, Try not to wear jumpsuits. There are many people in the hospital, and adults and children had better wear masks. In addition, take pacifiers and two toys that children like. In case the waiting time is too long, you can also help children pass the time. Don’t forget to take antipyretics for babies with fever. Once the temperature is too high, take them in time.
Wayward parents cannot do it.
When some parents see a doctor, they open their mouths and keep silent [I think X-degree is so …], and then they get the medicine and do not follow the doctor’s advice. Who knows, these may delay the child’s illness.
For example, the doctor prescribed antibiotics, but did not take them according to the course of treatment. He stubbornly believed that [the medicine is divided into three parts and poisonous]. If the symptoms are slightly better, he stopped taking the medicine for the child. Who knows that this is more likely to lead to repeated illness.
However, the family of antibiotics is huge, and different antibiotics target different diseases. If the wrong antibiotics are used, not only can the infection not be treated, but also the treatment of the baby will be delayed, resulting in the abuse of antibiotics.
What should I do when I get home?
In the hospital for a few hours at most, after returning home, it will take several days to recuperate and recuperate. Dr. Clove summed up the four requirements and four requirements for parents, hoping to help everyone remember these precautions most directly.
- To rest more, it is best to rest at home. Drink plenty of water; To keep the indoor temperature appropriate and the air fresh; To choose the right antipyretic; Do not use mercury thermometers; Don’t cover your child’s sweat. Do not wipe with alcohol to cool down, which is easy to cause alcoholism. It is not recommended to use antipyretic patches. It is useless and uncomfortable.
Among them, the recommendation on antipyretic drugs: fever exceeds 39 degrees, or less than 39 degrees but the baby is in poor condition, antipyretic drugs can be selected as appropriate. For infants aged 3-6 months, acetaminophen is the first choice. For more than 6 months, acetaminophen and ibuprofen can be selected.
Doctor Clove believes that only when her mother is calm can her baby be fine. I wish everyone a winter without running to the hospital.
