"What to do in an emergency" (short and easy instructions for first aid in illness and accident).
by a hospital doctor.
No. 11: Disinfectant and Disinfectant. (Finally) for measles, recommended, oily applications for the skin are. needed. Chlorium or chloride of zinc solution is. recommended for vessels in which the patient is. expected.
Only infectious forces appear strong in whooping cough. As already stated, air disinfectant should be. followed in this disease.
With diphtheria, and taking care of its infectious nature, special care needs to. taken.
The patient's breath is. accused of the poison of the disease and there are many cases in which this love has been. expressed by kissing the patient. All ragas used to wipe the mouth should
be burned immediately after use.
The use of air disinfectants is important here, as in the case of typhus fever. And as a precaution, the extrusion should be. sterilized with chlorine, candy fluid, or other liquid.
In typhoid fever or stomach fever (or intestinal. inflammation, as it is also called), the most. the important thing to keep in mind is that the excretion from the intestines is. considered to contain toxic substances.
These are cases that are. treated, they find their way into water and milk, and thus the disease spreads abroad. Then here's the rule for typhoid fever.
that all such emissions should be. disinfected immediately. For this purpose, a solution of more acid or vitriol (strength 1 to 20) can
to be. used. The pot should then contain some chloride of lime, and leave for some time, when the material can be. disposed of. Under no circumstances should the extrusion be. kept in a cupboard or sewer without being. disinfected. In the country, where this fever is often found,
This can be. traced back to the lack of disinfection. and dumping of emissions abroad, on land, or in fields near wells and rivers. Other disinfectants can be. used in typhoid fever
These include copper sulfate, chloride, iron. sulfate (one pint of water from 1 ounce), and strong carbolic acid. The bed of a typhoid fever patient should also be. disinfected.
cholera is now rare among us. The disease also includes infectious substances released from the intestines. Iron sulfate has .been recommended, but some good authorities deny its usefulness.
There is a huge disagreement about the best disinfectant ants for cholera excretion. somehow recommended for typhoid fever are effective. Carbolic acid vapor, chlorine gas, nitrous acid smoke, and C, should also be, used to clean the air. Dr. Budd's advice
terrible risk by default" – applies with special force to disinfect cholera.
Dysentery is a disease that seems to be responsible for. spreading in the same way that typhoid fever and cholera increase. The smoke emitted from chlorine gas has had the best effects in preventing the spread of this love.
The carbolic acid in the strong solution can also be. appreciated as a disinfectant for discharge in dysentery.
Vomiting is spreading. As is especially useful here. It also proves to be effective. When death
Nitrous acid fumes are. considered carbolic acid or chloroma.
To avoid infectious diseases, it is our duty. survivors to take special precautions with the dead. When removing the risk from this source,
The body should be. wrapped in sheets that are. completely filled with a carbolic acid solution, with a power of. one to twenty, or with chloride of a lime solution, one to forty. At the time of the coffin, the body should be. surrounded by dust,
These solutions have been. placed. Carbolic. powder, or "sanitize powder," offers an effective means by which the deceased can also be. disinfected during a coffin, and nitrous acid. smoke makes it the perfect disinfectant for morgues or apartments in which the dead are. kept for some time.
At the end of his papers on the treatment of family members at the time of "disinfection" and fever attack,
We can add the following valuable suggestions. offered to the Lancet by Dr. Green of Gateshead: The instructions. here, although for guiding medical staff. patients with fever, are worth keeping in mind all attendants about patients. with infectious diseases:
Never stand between the patient's room or ward. Patience and fire, but always between him and the open window. Do not go for any unnecessary exam or other physical examination.
5. Stay in the room for the shortest time. Never swallow saliva while in the room. Wash your hands with disinfectant water after leaving the sick room.
Wash the mouth with fine toilet sanitization. or coil fluid and gargle the throat with it and bathe the eyes, mouth, and nostrils.
9. Blow your nose as soon as you get out of the sick room. 10. Maintain general health through good diet, exercise, and restraint. 11. Besides the above recommendations, which are generally known,
I would suggest another, which, is the most important. That is, filtering all the air-breathing in the sick room. ward through the disinfectant medium. My method is to use McKinsey's inhaler on the nose and mouth.
I soak the sponge in a strong solution of carbolic acid before entering the sick room. It's built in such a way that. all air-breathing must come through this sponge, and the air eliminated by valve action is. emitted elsewhere. I've not only worn it in fever hospital wards,
In fact, many typhus of this borough are also worn in the dances. Because of this method, I point out that although. I have reviewed between 200 and 300 cases of typhus in the last twelve months, and I have seen many more,
But I have survived the infection myself so far. The only. objection (which is not very important in the hospital) is what the. appearance doesn't look like with an inhaler.
But, this objection is very minor when an increase in its safety is not only felt, but it is actually so.
An easy treatment for chaffing: bathe the parts. in cold water, dry well with a soft cloth, and apply the. following through a soft sponge or cloth: morphe acetate glycerin AQ.
The dreaded yellow fever is likely spread by applying it to straw parts two or three times a day.
