The Dangerous Illusion Of “Natural”

The Dangerous Illusion Of “Natural”

There is a new “Trend” in Vietnam. Mothers want to be “Natural”. They want to raise their children in a “Natural” way. They intend to give birth at home, they won’t give the baby a proper care after delivery like getting his vitamin K shot and they won’t vaccinate their children, believing they will survive horrible infections “Naturally”.
Managing Cardiac Events

Managing Cardiac Events

When cardiac events occur, there are only a few minutes to respond. There’s no time to figure out if a victim is suffering from a myocardial infarction (heart attack) or a pulmonary embolism (clotting of blood vessels in the lungs). It’s best to leave the technical details to the doctors. The most urgent issue for a bystander is to call an emergency number and perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if needed. It’s important to stick to the basics.

Pain and Needles

Many parents are very anxious when it comes to giving vaccinations to their baby. They don’t like causing pain, even though they know how important it is.

Animal Bites

Vietnam, as with many other countries in Asia, has low dog vaccination coverage, poor animal control programs, and high post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) usage. In the last decade, Vietnam reported a total of 914 human deaths from animal bites—averaging about 91 deaths each year.
Hand Reconstruction

Hand Reconstruction

Modern hand surgery is a miracle. The techniques and procedures I am trained in today involve rebuilding bones and joints, re-implanting severed fingers, and restoring function even after the hand has been catastrophically destroyed.
Depression

Depression

Human suffering comes in many forms, and emotional suffering affects almost everybody at one point or another. In some cases, that suffering can be so profound and have such an overwhelming impact on everyday life that it’s vital to get help. What prevents many people from seeking critical support or medical treatment for their mental health, however, is not knowing when their emotional state is serious enough to endanger their mental wellbeing.

How To Prevent Common Diseases During Rainy Season

The weather is changing and the traditional November rain has arrived. We can feel the cool breeze and the quality of the air is improving. However, high rainfall can cause widespread flooding, and stagnant water can be a breeding ground for all sorts of bacteria as well as mosquitoes, increasing the transmission of a number of communicable diseases.
