Explanation Of Blood Pressure Checks?
Good night doctor. I want to ask when I want to be checked into the room, the doctor must check his blood pressure, the last blood pressure is 100/60 that I want to ask for 100/60 which blood pressure is being interrupted, and how to raise it, how well, when You have to take it to the hospital, do you have to look at the combines first or there is no need for the symptoms of this tyhpus. Thank you and good night.
Hello Bayu, thank you for asking.
The first thing I will straighten out is, a tensimeter examination is an examination for systolic and diastolic blood pressure, not a platelet examination. Blood pressure is always expressed in two numbers separated by a slash (number). The numbers above the slash, indicate systolic blood pressure (blood pressure when the heart pumps blood). The number below the slash, diastolic blood pressure (blood pressure when the heart is not pumping). On the results of your blood pressure of 100/60 mmHg, it means that your systolic blood pressure is 100 mmHg and diastolic pressure is 60 mmHg. Both numbers are still in the normal range, as long as your general condition is good. The platelet count is expressed in a number, which is obtained through examination of blood samples. Thrombocyte is a piece of blood that functions to carry out blood clots. Normal values range between 150-450,000 / ml of blood (this value can change slightly, according to the provisions of each lab). Therefore, blood pressure checks cannot be used to determine platelet counts.
The second thing I need to explain is, platelet counts need to be considered strictly in several viral conditions such as dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) or chikungunya. The disease you are referring to is typhus, actually called typhoid fever. The process of typhoid fever does not affect the platelet count. In typhoid fever, what needs to be considered is the level of antibodies or bacterial antigens that cause typhoid fever, namely Salmonella typhii, and the number of white blood cells. Platelets are not the main thing of concern in cases of typhoid fever. So, you might be confused about typhoid fever with dengue hemorrhagic fever.
Typhoid fever attacks the digestive system, and causes symptoms of fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or even constipation, bloating, abdominal pain. Not every case of typhoid fever requires hospitalization. The doctor will assess your general condition, before deciding whether you should be treated or not.
In the meantime, follow the advice to take medicine from a doctor. Choose the type of food that is not too oily and spicy. If necessary, choose the type of food that is rather soft. Drink plenty of water. Enough rest.
Thus the information from me, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
