What Treatment Is Right For Neutropenia Fever Sufferers?
what treatment is right for those with neutropenia fever caused by cancer cell remover therapy?
Neutropenia is a condition where there is a decrease in the number of neutrophils in the blood. Neutrophils are components of white blood cells that function as immune cells. Basically neutrophils alone do not cause symptoms and are usually only known when analyzing blood samples. However, low levels of neutrophils cause low body immunity. As a result a person becomes very susceptible to infection and can be fatal. Fever in neutropenia may be caused by an infection caused by bacteria found in the digestive tract or respiratory tract.
Because neutropenia can vary, for example:
The effect of certain drugs.
Impaired blood cell formation.
The treatment must be carried out under the supervision of a doctor. Especially in cancer patients, can not be given haphazard therapy. Fever due to neutropenia is generally treated with empiric anti-microbial treatment, or administration of G-CSF drugs. Avoid giving medication without doctor's advice because it can make the problem worse.
Make sure hygiene is always maintained, use a mask at all times, wash hands often, make sure eating utensils are clean, don't be around sick people, pay attention to dental hygiene, always use footwear, immediately clean the wound if there is.
That's all the explanation I can give. Regards.
