Thinking about Christmas…

Read the Blog of Dr. Lindner, Chief Medical Officer World Medical Card, 12/ 2020- 1/2021:

«Thinking about Christmas…
Christmas time and the ending of the year does not mean a calm and relaxing time for emergency departments and prehospital emergency services.
In contrast, a multitude of patients has to be treated on top as their family doctors are closed. People do not know where else to address to and are uncertain although their sense of self maybe tells 
them that it is only a minor health problem.

It is not uncommon that especially at this specific time of the year these health issues are the physical mirror of stress or overwhelming expectations but also the result of less movement and a vast quantity of food.

Taking into account the pandemic situation this may become even more obvious this year. Preexisting illnesses like e.g. stomach problems, high blood pressure, diabetes or headaches could worsen. Family doctors do know their patients´ medical history and social situation very well.

They could value and treat their complaints that sometimes can even mimic severe health problems much more effective than doctors in the emergency setting who meet these patients for the first time.

In order to avoid the onset of physical complaints at all and therefore reduce workload of emergency medicine around Christmas it could be helpful if family members share their thoughts, fears and level of stress and take regular walks outside as well!»

Access critical medical information of the athletes

For the Team Management, team leaders, tour guides and supporting parents, it is crucial to be able to access critical medical information of the athletes if something should happen.

It is the Team Management that most often must provide first-line assistance or contact health personnel if a situation arises. Knowing whether an athlete is healthy, on medication or has allergies reduces the time until proper treatment is given.

One step ahead – The things you do not see are the ones that can determine the outcome

Prepare, prevent, plan for the unexpected, be confident that you are ready to face challenges. In Professional sports you prepare to win, in non-professional sports you prepare to become the best version of yourself. The Team Management is there to facilitate the development of the team and the individual. It provides safety and security. It is there in good times and an in bad times.

Den onde cirkel – søvnløshed, depression og kroniske smerter

Søvnløshed, kroniske smerter og depression er almindelige lidelser, og mange mennesker vil sandsynligvis blive ramt af en eller flere af disse i løbet af deres levetid. I denne artikel vil jeg forklare, hvorfor disse tre lidelser ofte ses hos de samme mennesker, og hvordan det at have én af dem kan øge risikoen for at blive ramt af endnu en eller alle tre lidelser. Endelig vil jeg diskutere, hvorfor det er vigtigt at være opmærksom på dette.  Read More

Vaccine – en stor succes

Vaccination anses for at være en af den moderne medicins største succeser, idet man ved enkle midler kan forebygge en række livstruende og invaliderende sygdomme. Forskning viser, at store vaccinationsprogrammer har medført en betydelig reduktion i børnedødeligheden. Og flere sygdomme, der tidligere har været en stor udfordring for folkesundheden, er blevet udryddet eller næsten udryddet ved, at store befolkningsgrupper er blevet vaccineret. Read More

Slagtilfælde – minutterne tæller

Den globale sygdomsbyrde forandrer sig hele tiden. For bare få år siden var det infektionssygdommene, der dræbte flest mennesker i verden, men i de seneste år har de såkaldt ikke-smitsomme sygdomme overtaget førstepladsen over sygdomme, der tager flest liv. Et stigende antal rygere og ændringer i livsstilen får skyld for en stor del af årsagen. Fælles for de to sygdomme – hjertesygdomme og slagtilfælde – der årligt kræver flest liv, er, at de primært rammer blodårerne i kroppen. I dette blogindlæg ser vi nærmere på slagtilfældet. Read More

Mere om antibiotika og antibiotikaresistens

Antibiotika og antibiotikaresistens kan hurtigt blive abstrakte begreber, og det kan virke lidt mærkeligt, at den medicin, du får af din læge, kan have en større betydning end bare at sikre, at du forhåbentlig (men sandsynligvis ikke) bliver hurtigere rask. Hvad er sammenhængen mellem en forkølelse og fremtidige superbakterier? For at besvare spørgsmålet med det samme: Det er bakterierne, der udvikler resistens, ikke os mennesker. Ordet resistens kommer fra latin, ”resistere”, der betyder at stå imod. Så på samme måde, som vi bruger antibiotika til stå imod med over for bakterier, så udvikler bakterierne forsvarsmekanismer (for der er flere typer) mod antibiotika. Nogle bakterier kan også udveksle den slags ”forsvarshemmeligheder” indbyrdes. Read More
