Use Of Blankets In Patients With Dengue Fever?
. If you suffer from dbd, you have to use a thick blanket or what should I do …
Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Fever patients should not be given a thick blanket. Patients should use thin clothing only, so that the heat from the body more easily removed. Patients also need lots of rest and drink more water than usual. Consumption of water can help patients reduce their body temperature. Dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever are viral diseases that are transmitted through the bite of the Aedes aegypti mosquito. Dengue hemorrhagic fever is a severe form of this disease. Patients with dengue fever generally need hospitalization in a health facility, whereas patients with dengue fever can usually be treated with outpatient treatment only. Patients with dengue need to get enough fluid. If treated at home, all fluids can only enter through the mouth (drink). Patients need to drink very much and if it is difficult to drink (due to vomiting or other causes), the patient must be immediately taken to the hospital to get fluids through an IV. You should also immediately take the patient to the nearest hospital emergency room if the patient experiences severe abdominal pain, continuous vomiting (especially if accompanied by blood), breathing quickly, bleeding from the gums or other body parts, bruising, or fainting.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
