        Fears of visiting patients after deaths «Corona» .. doctors:
        Gag medical necessary in emergency departments and critical care


        Mohammed Daoud (Jeddah)

        Reassured specialized doctors wary of visiting patients in hospitals after registering cases of infection «Corona», stressing cross «Okaz» to visit the patient in his room does not pose any risk, pointing out that the wear Gag Medical is not necessary
        in the case of a visit regular rooms, but visit emergency departments, isolation and intensive care and critical they require bodysuit.

        Emergency and intensive
        And saw a consultant Family and Community Medicine, Dr. Ashraf Abdul Gayoom Amir of the concerns Visitors patients to hospitals are normal reactions to current conditions after registering cases of injuries Pkorona in some hospitals, indicating that these humanitarian visits do not constitute any concerns or fears of exposure to the virus and do not require to wear a mask if the visit In standard rooms, because in this case the patient is to muzzle the wearer, especially if subjected to surgery or illness requires wearing a mask, but in each case, the visitor if he wishes to wear the mask, this would depend upon a preventive step.
        He pointed out that the cases which you must wear a mask are visits or revisions in emergency or intensive care and a guarantee not to acquire any infection, and especially that he does not know the nature of the diseases suffered by the auditors, and thus wear the mask is a necessity in these sections.
        Dr. Amir concluded that there is a scientific foundation in dealing with cases of infectious diseases through isolated in isolation rooms, and the staff therapist applies all medical standards, which avoided any exposure to a viral infection.
        Health requirements
        Not unlike the advisory opinion of family medicine and community in health Jeddah Dr. Sami Eid for the previous opinion and says: There is no fear of visiting patients in the standard rooms and if desired visitor wear Gag medical this personal affair and preventive, and the mandatory wear respirators shall be in isolation sections and intensive care and, of course, emergency, where the patient or references does not know the nature of his illness and injury, especially if there are associated symptoms such as fever, runny nose and sneezing continuous Such cases must be dealt with to wear a mask and gloves without indulgence.
        Dr. Eid stressed the need for the attention of health practitioners to apply all health requirements as to avoid any infection because the gain leniency in this aspect, especially in emergency departments paves the way for the acquisition of the infection.
        Psychological worries
        He said consultant psychiatrist Dr Abubakar Banaama fears that members of the community to visit patients are unfounded fears are normal reactions to the status quo seen with our registered cases of the disease Coruna.
        He said that the visit of the patient to wear a medical mask is a normal, but as long as the patient is not contagious, the matter does not require wearing a mask as long as lying in a regular room and not isolation or intensive care. He stressed Dr Banaama on health practitioners should not be lenient with health requirements and wear a mask and medical gloves in the case of dealing with patients in emergency departments, isolation and care, especially that viruses are now constitute the new generation of the challenge and the mutation gene, and thus its unique ability to infect a person, as a weak immune especially in the elderly and people who suffer from chronic diseases and children are more susceptible to infection from infected.

                  Returned to the deadly virus released pages of the media. However, it has been associated with this time Bulgt and lack of clarity in the official bodies dealing with what is going on in the media. I was talking with a colleague mentioned that he attended a funeral for the two sons of his friend, "it was said," They died of injuries following a deadly virus.

                  Two days later, I watched the Ministry of Health staff on a tour of the streets of a city official car, and everyone was wearing masks.

                  Only a day later spread to the speech prompt networking sites from the Department of Health in one of the provinces to the Director General of Health Affairs in Riyadh, recognizing the potential lack of charge, and the inability of his machine on the implementation of procedures to control the spread of the virus within the limits of his province.

                  Publishing a day later told the governor of the province, requesting support, confirming the absence of the province of injuries, and if we take Qaeda famous, which says that exile means of proof, Vtsrih charge indicates that there is not a problem to be dealt with in the right way, because the first and most important elements of a solution of the problem is recognize that there is a problem.

                  Today I read the news of the death of a Ministry of Health nurses, a doctor and heal disease. The contradiction between the statements of the ministry and the reality experienced by hospitals, through a statement in the hospital responsible King Abdul Aziz University, which confirmed that the numbers are larger than the ministry declared.

                  Must declare that the Ministry of Health and the reality of the situation in a transparent manner indisputable. Must declare the names of the deceased and cities where people were injured and the number and causes, without any compliments or attempts to cover any error or information of interest to the citizen.

                  The ministry is also obliged to distribute the means of prevention, Valoguenah must be distributed, and required people to use in gathering places, both work sites, schools or markets, napkins and means of sterilization should be distributed to families, and demanding business destinations provided at entrances and outside toilets.

                  Educate school students, and work tests, and down sampling, basic. In addition to training the largest number of teachers and safety officials on the means of protection and prevention by the staff of the ministry.

                  Awareness posters must be posted, and the use of outdoor advertising boards to identify and warn, because the situation calls for do-out war, in which everyone
