Effects Of Sleep Without Bed Sheets In Patients With MDR TB?
For example, if you sleep, don’t use the sheets, will that bacteria be inhaled again?
MDR TB (multi drug resistance tuberculosis) is a tuberculosis infection by germs that are resistant (does not work / does not respond) to several anti-tuberculosis drug regimens (OAT), especially rifampicin and isoniazid drugs. MDR TB occurs due to consumption of OAT that is not in accordance with the rules / drop out of the drug. MDR TB symptoms are the same as pulmonary tuberculosis, namely chronic cough that does not heal, coughing up blood, weight loss, night sweats, chest pain, shortness of breath, etc. A person is suspected of having MDR TB if after 3 months of treatment the TB germ in sputum remains positive, treatment failure, dropping out of medication, and TB sufferers with HIV who do not respond to TB treatment.
MDR TB is established based on examination of germ resistance through the Xpert MTB / RIF method. MDR TB therapy is quite difficult in some areas due to limited supply of drugs and the high price of drugs. MDR TB transmission can be through droplet coughing, sneezing, singing (inhalation / inhalation with breath) in the air. People who breathe air with TB MDR bacteria are at risk of contracting it. Tuberculosis is not transmitted through shaking hands, exchanging cutlery, pillowcases, and the like. To avoid transmission it is better to improve the ventilation of the house, make sure the house gets enough sunlight, good cough ethics, wear a mask.
MDR TB sufferers must be diligent in the control of the treating doctor. The use of drugs should not be arbitrary. Treatment is usually longer, but MDR TB can be cured. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
