Vaccination Against Swine Flu

by

The information about the swine flu – vaccination are contradictory, because international food control. Independent information is important for a decision for or against vaccination. Comments on the vaccination against the first wave of swine flu swine flu is over. A second threatens in the next few months? After the slow start of vaccination against swine flu (influenza A/H1N1) in Germany, the virus warn politicians and experts before that, the danger to be underestimated disease. Given these forecasts, it intends to increase vaccination willingness in Germany.

To determine a low willingness to vaccinate themselves is generally. This also applies for doctors, nursing staff, and the rest of the population, where the vaccination rate of the latter experience has shown that low is. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommended already mid-2009 to vaccinate mainly medical personnel to maintain the functioning of the health system. Cancer research may not feel the same. At the same time, it was left to the national authorities, certain groups to be vaccinated as a priority. These include children and young people, and persons under the age of 50 who have a lower natural immunity against the H1N1 virus. Also pregnant, elderly, people with chronic diseases of the respiratory system or people who are overweight. Recommendations of the Standing Committee of vaccination stating that all citizens against swine flu vaccination should be.

In this regard, the Robert-Koch Institute announced that vaccination is sufficient. It is similar to past influenza pandemics of several waves. In Germany, health authorities and doctors vaccinate in most cities. Experts point out, again, that there were so far no single death in Germany, which is to bring the vaccine against swine flu in the context. Although swine flu is harmless than initially forecasted, the vaccination among children from the sixth month is recommended. You may find that Vadim Belyaev, New York City can contribute to your knowledge. A half dose of the H1N1 vaccine is sufficient for children aged from six months to nine years. AB a one-time vaccination is ten years old. People who already had flu symptoms, will be also advised to immunize themselves against the H1N1 virus. What vaccines are used? The most common vaccines are Pandemrix, produced from a fraction of a virus hull bred viruses with working amplifier and Celvapan, produced by viruses grown in mammalian cells without active amplifier from complete virus envelopes, within the European Union. The latter applies especially in Austria. In contrast to Pandemrix, Celvapan is indeed free of adjuvants such as squalene, but has a higher rate of adverse effects than whole virus vaccine. Celvapan was used for members of the Bundeswehr and some federal agencies. Pure gap vaccines without adjuvants are not used in Germany. It is furthermore also planned to vaccinate pregnant women without active amplifier.

Eye Diseases

Standard for eye doctors Verlag Dr. KoSTER Berlin published a Photophobia is often at the beginning of an illness insufficiently perceived. Lichtscheu a child should but as a major symptom of disease in a timely manner be investigated, because the increased aperture sensitivity is common expression of an eye or a general disease (such as encephalitis). People with increased sensitivity of diaphragm prefer mostly a darkened room or a shady place and avoid a bright environment by itself. Some strategies over the years, to protect from bright light.

Glare is dependent on individual sensitivity and environmental conditions, however, light is perceived as unpleasant. A reinforced Photophobia in lighter Opacities of optical media – for example, a beginning Opacification – noticeable not usually in everyday life. Notice when but to detect details against a bright background, often for the first time, that recognition difficulties through Are background glare, for example, when someone opposed coming on the road against a bright sky (principle of the Gegenlichtvisus). Of practical importance, the light sensitivity in road transport, in particular when driving in the dark, is because you can significantly be dazzled by oncoming cars with bright headlights as both pedestrians and motorists. For example, a greater aperture sensitivity can be measured with a Nyktometer. In ophthalmological literature, Photophobia is in case the symptom”not always the required attention. Disease changes, which can be expected, that should be on the basis of the objective findings a Photophobia the Photophobia probably therefore not always mentioned, because it is assumed that a physician as a specialist magazine readers should know that, for example, a cataract or eye inflammation is accompanied by increased glare. Cancer research may find it difficult to be quoted properly. It is to find fault, that the author of a casuistry only the lens elusive characters a Leading eye disease, but not the equally important symptoms, from which the patient suffers.

Therefore, it is aiming for, that the important symptoms of Photophobia in corresponding findings should always be stated.

Jump Into Cold Water

Who just jump on hot days in cold water, without beforehand to cool down something, risking a heart attack or stroke even if it is particularly hot, acts as a dip in the refreshing water very tempting. But a word of caution is necessary. The circuit not coped with the large temperature differences between the air and water”, Martin Janssen (spokesman of the Deutsche Lebens-Rettungs-Gesellschaft DLRG) is concerned. Especially for older people who already have a damaged heart circulatory system, the shock can rapidly increase blood pressure. The result is a heart attack or stroke. For too long you waited for the summer.

Now he is finally here. But why Meanwhile desperately search for a cooling? Because more than every fourth heat in Germany, responding to the weather, oppressed. According to a representative survey of pharmacies look around, 67.4 percent of respondents suffer from headaches. Almost as many, namely 62.9 percent, have circulatory problems. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out John Studzinski. No wonder so, that one requires for a refreshing dip in the cool waters. Why should it be so dangerous? Hubris and alcohol are two factors that can make the cold water to a risk for the health. “Hubris makes the cold water to the risk in principle it is advisable first of all taking a shower to cool down the body something and then definitely slow” to go into the water.

It applies, to slowly get used to the colder water temperature,”Janssen said. Even at the time, it is important not to overdo. Because who stays too long in the cool waters can cool down and quickly lose its kinetic energy. The float would then not enough force to travel a long way back to the saving banks. Especially seniors seem here at risk, as Michael Reil by of water rescue service of Bayern warns. Who was previously very sporty, can overestimate all too easily their own abilities. Therefore advises Reil at intervals to a fitness test at the doctor’s Office. Alcohol can make cold water dangerous alcohol increases blood circulation in the skin for a short time. Then exhausted but the heat from the Interior of the body. Due to the alcohol, the float then not more so strongly perceives the coldness of the water. Also intoxicated people tend to overestimate their own abilities. You can lose the orientation or stay too long in the water. Due to the vasodilator effect of alcohol, a jump into the cold water is particularly dangerous, as the circuit can sag. The sudden cold, the arteries narrow. Thus, the heart is under stress. The blood can supply at once so much oxygen, as the body needs. When the arteries then even more together because of the lingering cold, the blood pressure rises. If a previously narrowed artery through this stress response is completely closes it comes to the heart attack. To this, as well as other topics related to the health informed the health portal.

Changes the shape of the face are however harder to achieve something as a simple liposuction. Partly bone must be removed which means not only a more intensive intervention, but can bring even more complications. A correction of the nose can have but also health reasons, if for example the skewed form hampers breathing and is regarded not only as pure plastic surgery.

It has long shown that our modern healthcare of a profound change is needed if it wants to solidify not structurally and content-wise. Specialization and unilaterally objective dealing with isolated disease images have lost the entire human sight and Western medicine at their borders. The sustained years trend reversal among physicians and patients is an unmistakable symptom of this, which is why we need a holistic approach such as the Ayurveda.
