The important role of Chinese nurses in fighting against covid-19
On February 29, Ms. Guo Yanhong, general inspector from the medical administration of China Health Commission, introduced the following information at the press conference of Joint Prevention And Control Mechanism of the State Council: 42000 excellent medical forces have been sent to Wuhan city to carry out the rescue work of the new coronavirus, including 28600 nurses, accounting for 68% of the total number of medical teams. These nurses play a very important role in the medical process. There is an old Chinese saying that three points of treatment and seven points of care. Whether in the shelter hospital, isolated ward or ICU, Chinese nurses are working hard there.
China nurses treat novel coronavirus pneumonia, and take care of patients carefully, observe the patients' condition seriously and give psychological support to patients. Together with doctors, they have made positive contributions to saving patients' lives, reducing mortality, promoting patients' recovery and improving the cure rate. They also use their actions to interpret the noble spirit of respecting and protecting life, saving lives and helping the wounded, being willing to contribute, and loving selflessly. They are the most lovely people in the new era.
Guo Na, deputy director of Nursing Department of Beijing Union Medical College Hospital, introduced the work of nurses. Severe cases of novel coronavirus pneumonia are critical and rapidly changing. Patients often have multiple organ failure and multiple complications. Therefore, the treatment is very complex, and the workload of nursing is also great. These diseases require high professional skills of nurses. In this process, closely observe the condition, closely cooperate with doctors and nurses, and jointly do a good job in the overall care of critical patients, which is very important for the prognosis of patients.
According to the treatment needs of severe and critical patients in Hubei Province, especially in Wuhan City, the medical team of the national rescue team includes more than 5500 nurses of severe specialty. They are a very important rescue force. In the work of treatment, on the one hand, the nurses of critical care specialty must closely monitor the vital signs of patients, pay attention to their breathing and circulation, and at the same time, strictly do the work of artificial airway management, renal replacement therapy, ECMO nursing, prone ventilation nursing, etc. For the critical patients, we should actively prevent a series of complications such as ventilator-associated pneumonia, catheter-related blood flow infection, deep vein thrombosis, pressure sore and so on.
Facts have proved that through the careful care of all nurses, the patients' condition in Wuhan has been well relieved, and their mood has also been relieved, achieving a good treatment effect.
The head nurse of the ICU of Huoshenshan Hospital said: I didn't equate heroes with us in my life, just because I promised that I would come to Wuhan for rescue, I should take out this good working condition!
