“Immunization against the Sars- CoV2 virus is making progress. However, this process is not as fast as we might wish- not even in the countries with sufficient economic power.

On top, there is and still will be a lot of uncertainty of new mutants of the virus in terms of easier spreading, severity of infection and effect of vaccination for some time. Consequently, we should recall individual precautions best proven as effective over and over again during the next weeks or months.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends:

(Excerpt from:, Date of access: Feb, 08th 2021)

  • Maintain at least a 1-metre distance between yourself and others
  • Make wearing a mask a normal part of being around other people. The appropriate use, storage and cleaning or disposal are essential to make masks as effective as possible.
  • Avoid the 3Cs: spaces that are closed, crowded or involve close contact
  • Meet people outside.
  • Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
    Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.

However, we expect a great variety of different status concerning Sars-CoV2/ Covid 19 in the population. More and more people will be vaccinated, others have gone through the infection and might have information about their amount of antibodies. This is obviously associated with a lot of medical information like e.g. date and product of vaccination(s) that needs to be easily accessible for health care personnel in order to be clear on this and ensure safe medical treatment. Moreover, it is foreseeable the availability of this information also becomes more and more important in daily social life.»

ICD-10 codes and COVID-19

«International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems – ICD.

Most likely, a great amount of us already has recognized some strange alphanumeric codes on a hospital report. In most cases they appear just before the name of the illness one was diagnosed to have.  However, most people never question what they are for and where they come from.

Historically, these numbers were set up to make international statistics of the illnesses on the basis of which people died! This goes back to the 19th century.

Today, the ICD- code is the most accepted international classification system of illnesses and symptoms in general. The World Health Organisation (WHO) is in charge to frequently update the system.

Currently, we are dealing with the 10th version, but ICD-11 is on its way and will become effective with the beginning of 2022. Although there are some local modifications in several countries, the essence of the alphanumerical code is equally used.

To give you an example: someone who was treated for lower back pain will find the “M54.5” on his report and if you are suffering from high blood pressure “I10.9” should be written on yours.

If you already suffered from COVID 19 disease the ICD code for this is U07.1”.
There might be some extending digits e.g. defining the side.

Next to using it for statistic evaluation of the prevalence of illnesses, ICD codes can also be used to regulate the financial side of the health system as for a certain ICD code there is a certain payment that every hospital gets.

Gallensteine – die größten Steine sind oft am besten

Gallensteine können starke krampfartige Schmerzen im rechten Oberbauch verursachen und mit Übelkeit, Brechreiz und Erbrechen einhergehen.

Gallensteine bilden sich in der Gallenblase und bestehen aus Cholesterol und Gallensalzen. Wo sich Gallensteine festsetzen, hängt von ihrer Größe ab. Oft sind die größten Steine sozusagen am besten, da sie in der Gallenblase liegen bleiben und nicht in die Gallenblasenöffnung oder in die Gallengänge gelangen, diese verstopfen und dann symptomatisch werden. Gallensteine treten häufiger bei Frauen vor den Wechseljahren auf, im späteren Alter stehen sich Männer und Frauen hier ungefähr gleich.
