How Do Doctors View BPJS Patients?
Continuing my question about my father’s hiccups that did not stop (uncontrolled) for 4 years which caused vomiting until hypo kalemi u0026amp; natremi even vomited blood. Has been treated 12x. All lab tests from blood checks, x rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, etc. that have never been ENDOSCOPE. Being treated by a doctor at u0026amp; Nerves if you want an endoscopy you have to go through Poli, which has to go out / go home from treatment (outpatient status), while my father takes 3-5 days after being discharged. The treatment worsens again before the first checkup. Does the endoscopy of BPJS patients always go through the clinic regardless of the emergency? How the doctor views personally. thank you
The BPJS has certain rules about the procedure stages of each disease. Therefore, if you want to know more clearly about these rules, please communicate directly with the doctor who is treating your parents, or meet the BPJS directly.
Endoscopy can of course be done in an emergency if deemed necessary by the doctor who treats your father. If it is not done, it is possible that it will not be considered helpful, or what is needed is another type of examination.
The hiccup itself is a condition where there is a sudden contraction of the diaphragm which then makes the vocal cords close and produces a distinctive sound like 'hic'.
Hiccups can be caused by:
Swallowing too quickly Swallowing air Smoking Eating and drinking too much Stroke Brain tumor Damage to the vagus nerve Certain medications Anxiety and stress Acid reflux disease Impaired kidney function Pneumonia Meningitis, encephalitis To treat these hiccups, we recommend that you:
Communicate with the doctor what matters you think should be checked. Discussing about this is important for the patient / family and the doctor to know each other clearly the patient's care plan Make sure you bring your parents regular control to the doctor Eat regularly, not too much and chew slowly Avoid smoking So, hope this helps ya
