Pages: 1 2 3 4

About 20 years ago in medicine there was a new term - rehabilitation. It is borrowed from lawyers and literally translates as the restoration of the violated rights. Doctors under the rehabilitation imply the restoration of the health and disability after a serious illness. Initially the term was applied only to cardiovascular patients. Now it is used widely enough.
If the patient is usually begins in the clinic, continues in the hospital, and ends again in the hospital, then, when this is not enough when you have a patient be sent to the sanatorium, and then a long time to keep it under medical observation in the clinic, the doctors say about rehabilitation.
The effectiveness of rehabilitation measures depends on the patient's behavior, from his relationship to the doctor.
Naturally, a doctor, have each time to reckon with the fact that the patient is experiencing severe sense of physical and mental stress associated with the disease itself, and worried about their own welfare.
The first question that arises in a patient, concerns how to develop psychic and physical stress, and what are they?
The question, of course, hard to explain, but he is very human and medical-biological interest. To understand it allows the patient to better implement measures of primary and secondary prevention and, therefore, to reduce the incidence of many diseases and to prevent progression of the disease, which has already arisen.
The occurrence of various diseases are often fraught with tension of nerve processes of the cerebral cortex, especially in those patients who have prevails stimulatory process on the brake.
I. P. Pavlov in his time, he stated that the collision of the excitatory and inhibitory processes in brain cortex leads to the development of neurosis. Last difficult for any somatic diseases and increases the sensitivity of the Central nervous system to the various influences on the human organism.
In various diseases, whether they are functional, inflammatory or degenerative in nature, having dysfunction adaptive systems that changes in one or another direction of neurohumoral regulation and leading to the accumulation in the body of waste products of metabolism. The latter, in turn, have various adverse effects on the nervous system. Irritating sensitive nerve endings, they through the complex mechanisms of regulation increases the sensitivity to pain, cause intoxication of the organism and lead to a strain of mental activity.
The patient in this case often begins to think that the disease makes it inferior members of society, as it reduces the functional activity, falls performance and, therefore, reduced its financial security. However, in our country during sick social insurance bodies pay for sick-sheet for temporary disability, but it is also regulated by specific deadlines, after which the patient is transferred to disability. Of course, pension content limits the material well-being and hinders organization of everyday life. This, in turn, creates adverse mental attitude and affects the course of the disease.
If there traumatized psyche not all patients contact, not all of them want to "open up" before the doctor. Meanwhile the doctor without knowledge of the conditions of life of the patient is difficult, and often impossible to clarify the causes of the emergence and exacerbation of his illness. Therefore, the patient should tell the doctor about events that, in his opinion, lie in the basis of developing the disease. But this story will lose its meaning if left to itself, because the patient can take the doctor away from finding out the most important causative factors in the basis of developing the disease.
The duty of the physician is creating a climate so that the patient felt that clarifying the various aspects of his life is done not for the sake of curiosity, but in order to determine the nature of the disease.
An objective examination of the patient with the help of modern clinical, electrophysiological, biochemical and morphological methods in comparison with historical data allows the doctor to make their own judgment about the nature of the disease and, thus, to make a preliminary diagnosis. In the process of monitoring the patient's diagnosis to be confirmed, captured the dynamics of signs of disease under the influence of preventive measures.
