After entering autumn, the number of children with respiratory diseases has begun to rise. Recently, the average daily number of outpatient and emergency visits has been fluctuating between 9,500 and 11,000, and more than 1,600 children are hospitalized.

    Cui Hualei said: "We have been continuously monitoring the number of outpatient and emergency visits and making adjustments to match the number of doctors and patients every day. The hospital leaders personally designed a plan to deal with the peak diagnosis and treatment volume, took multiple measures to deal with the surge in diagnosis volume, and did their best to shorten the waiting time for children. By continuously analyzing the outpatient, emergency and registration volume, personnel shifts and times are adjusted in a targeted manner to ensure sufficient medical strength is reserved during the peak hours of medical treatment every night. Many medical staff delay work or rush back to the hospital from home, giving up their rest and working overtime to be timely. Diagnosis and treatment of children. The newly opened night clinic can realize night clinic visits at different times. On the one hand, it can shorten the waiting time of children. On the other hand, it can also reserve emergency resources for critically ill children. The emergency pre-examination triage will be based on Reasonably guide the treatment area according to the child's condition.

    Zhao Minpeng, chief of the medical department of Tianjin Children's Hospital, said: "After completing their normal diagnosis and treatment work, all doctors in the hospital will use their spare time to serve children in the pediatric internal medicine night clinic opened in the evening. In addition to doctors, nursing staff, pharmaceuticals, Doctors in inspection, imaging, B-ultrasound and other inspection and examination departments use their spare time to work overtime, and logistics, information, property and other departments also do a good job in ensuring the safety. We have set up relevant inspection and examination projects based on the characteristics of current diseases to ensure basic diagnosis and treatment.”
    Zhao Minpeng introduced that the night clinic hours are from 17:00 to 22:00 every day, and are located on the first floor of the Hexi Machang Campus Clinic and the second floor of the Beichen Longyan Campus Clinic. Parents can register in three ways, including making an appointment through the WeChat service account "Tianjin Children's Hospital Internet Hospital", on-site self-service machine registration at the hospital, and on-site manual window registration at the hospital.
    Xu Yongsheng, director of the Respiratory Department of the Children's Hospital, told reporters: "From the current point of view, the vast majority of children have respiratory infections, and the common symptoms are fever and cough. There are several groups of people who are more at risk for general respiratory infections. The first group is the age group Especially young children, the second category is children with congenital heart disease, kidney disease and other basic diseases, so be extra careful, and the third category is when the seasons change or extreme weather occurs, young children should also take protective measures."
    Xu Yongsheng said that the vast majority of respiratory infections are self-limiting diseases, and parents should focus on observing their children's status and disease development trends. The acute phase of respiratory infections in children is usually within a week, and for most children it is about 3 days. Parents need to pay attention to their child's fever and the state after the fever subsides. If the child is in good condition after the fever subsides and eats and drinks without delay, then the child's condition will not be serious.
    In addition, the judgment must be based on age and disease duration. The younger the age, the faster the disease progresses and the higher the risk. School-age children have a much smaller risk of progression than younger children. Then there is the issue of time. If the fever lasts for a long time, you may suffer from other diseases. If the fever occurs within 24 hours and the child is in good condition, parents can observe it at home. Most children can be observed in about 72 hours. Disease trends. If the high fever persists, antipyretics are ineffective, the patient is in a bad mental state, does not eat well, is vomiting, or has other symptoms besides fever and cough, such as rash, you should seek medical attention promptly.
    Xu Yongsheng also reminded parents that mycoplasma pneumonia is a type of pneumonia and is caused by infection with the pathogen Mycoplasma pneumoniae. After children are infected with Mycoplasma pneumoniae, the main treatment method is to take macrolide drugs, including azithromycin, erythromycin, clarithromycin, etc. Most children can effectively control their condition through drug treatment. After a respiratory infection caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae, the body's repair process will be relatively slow, and the natural course of the disease is approximately one month. During the repair process, secretions caused by inflammation can cause chronic cough. As long as the cough does not affect normal life and there are no special problems in previous objective examinations, parents do not need to be too nervous.
    On June 1, 2018, Tianjin Children's Hospital officially launched the new self-service medical treatment system "Smart Clinic", and subsequently completed the "Smart Emergency Department", "Smart Hospitalization" and "Internet Hospital"... and implemented real-name medical treatment management. Zhao Minpeng said that parents in need can follow the Tianjin Children's Hospital Internet Hospital WeChat service account for real-name authentication, and can make appointments and registrations without leaving home, as well as online follow-up consultations for internal medicine, online prescriptions for otolaryngology and dermatology, and in-hospital preparations.
