The Use Of Water Purifier For TB Sufferers
Hello. My niece aged 11 months suffered from pulmonary tuberculosis, now antibiotic treatment is tb. But my niece often got sick, from the previous month I was treated 4x. Every time someone is sick at home, they must be infectious and severe and must be treated. If you use water purifier at home can you help or not to get it quickly? Ask for the info, thanks
Hello Ros, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
The child's immune system is developing more and more. Children easily get the disease usually obtained from adults, especially in the transmission of TB infection. Children who have a weak immune system, have a higher risk of developing tuberculosis, for example children who experience malnutrition or HIV. The disease easily contracted in unhealthy home conditions. Environmental health especially at home must be highly considered, starting from the air circulation, lighting, etc.
Air Purifier is an air purifier that uses filters, usually used in environments with poor air quality. The way this water purifier works, the air in the room will enter the device then the air is filtered by a filter and will be channeled back into fresher and pollution-free air. For example there are family members who are smokers, this water purifier can minimize odors and cigarette smoke in the room. Air purifiers can also eliminate viruses and bacteria in the air, eliminate unpleasant odors, and reduce mold growth. But that does not mean the use of this tool will guarantee not to quickly transmit the disease to children.
To avoid children from illness, what should be done is:
Provide adequate nutrition for children. Give vitamins to improve growth and development of children. Maintain cleanliness of the home environment. Avoid children from sick people. If there are people who are sick, such as coughing or runny nose should not be near children. Avoid smoking in the home environment. That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
