The new coronavirus is spreading. Do you know anything about the ICU?

Release time:2020-02-13classification:Enterprise dynamics News

On February 5, 2020, the national health commission released the “pneumonia diagnosis and treatment plan for new coronavirus infection (trial version 5)”, which pointed out that critical cases should be admitted to the ICU for treatment as soon as possible.With the spread of the new coronavirus, the ICU is at the forefront of the battle for frontline health care workers.A day to occur many times the rescue, and the virus face to face psychological and physiological will bear a heavy load, the surrounding time spread may be infected by the fear.Such “battlefield” — ICU you really understand?.

What is ICU?

Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is the abbreviation of the English Intensive Care Unit.A medical facility that allows critically ill patients to pass through a critical period.The ICU USES advanced diagnostic, monitoring and treatment equipment and technology to make continuous and dynamic qualitative and quantitative observation of the condition, and through effective intervention measures to provide standardized, high-quality life support for critically ill patients and improve the quality of life.


What kind of patients need to be admitted to the ICU?

Generally speaking, no matter what kind of disease the patient suffers from, as long as the patient’s vital signs show significant abnormality, or a possible recovery of organ dysfunction, or the patient has potential life-threatening factors can be admitted to the ICU.


The main subjects of ICU are:

①Severe trauma, major surgery and the need for continuous close monitoring and support of vital indicators;

②People who need cardiopulmonary resuscitation;

③Failure of one organ (including heart, brain, lung, liver, kidney) or multiple organ failure;

④Severe shock, sepsis and poisoning;

⑤Those who need monitoring and intensive treatment before and after organ transplantation ;

⑥On the basis of chronic organ dysfunction, patients with acute exacerbations and life-threatening conditions may return to their original state after intensive ICU monitoring and treatment;

⑦Life-threatening injuries from natural disasters or accidents.For example, it is responsible for the treatment of critically ill patients in a series of major events such as SARS, yushu earthquake, avian influenza and new coronary pneumonia.


How do ICU patients recover?

In order to minimize the complications of long-term inactivity, bed rest and mechanical ventilation, the following work should be done: rational use of analgesic and sedative drugs;Prevention and monitoring of venous thromboembolism;Appropriate nutritional support;Get a good night’s sleep;Encourage early activity.
Severe patients should consider the implementation of scientific, progressive PT, in bed can start the early passive ROM training, to patients regularly turn over, sit up, its purpose is to maintain the flexibility of the joint and prevent joint contracture.With the improvement of the disease, can gradually carry out active therapeutic activities, including active ROM training, strength/resistance training, bed movement, out of bed, weight, standing and walking.


Why should ICU patients sit and stand as early as possible?

①ICU patients have a lot of dysfunction, which is largely caused by long-term bed rest. Besides, many common complications, such as bedsores, deep vein thrombosis of lower limbs and pulmonary infection, are also caused.

②To the patient that consciousness is not clear or comatose to have promote awake effect: stand as early as possible can stimulate patient consciousness, make inside inflammation reaction and fight inflammation reaction tend to be balanced, adjust the operation of each physiology function;

③Standing is a kind of static training, which is conducive to establishing collateral circulation to improve ischemic tissue and blood supply, activate brain cells, and help patients go offline as soon as possible or reduce their frequency of using ventilator.

④If the patient can sit up and stand up briefly as soon as possible, it can increase the confidence and cooperation enthusiasm of the patient and his family, which is the first step to transfer out of the ICU.


What are the advantages of UFU robots to replace traditional transfer methods?

At present, the main mode of ICU transfer in hospitals is the manual handling of medical staff. In a survey of a third-class first-class hospital in China, the daily weight of nurses in the ICU ward is 23 ~ 95kg, some even more than 95kg.In addition to such large survey Numbers, there are many ICU patients who miss the opportunity to get off the ground early because of the shortage of medical personnel resources.The transfer of patients not only consumes great physical strength of medical staff, but also easily causes secondary injury to patients.Because the patient is bedridden for a long time causes the bone joint of the place such as shoulder joint, ankle joint hardness decreases, a little careless, easy to cause pull injury and damage.


UFU robot (help electric shift machine) adopts electric push rod design, without manpower, it can easily realize help and stand by remote control handle, avoid secondary injury, and improve nursing efficiency.Allow the patient to easily achieve in the ward for standing, transfer and movement, easy access to the elevator, ward, corridor, etc.In addition, it can also provide self-access to the toilet, lighting and one-button call for help for the elderly at home.



UFU robot ICU application case

Due to sudden myocardial infarction, li ** was admitted to the ICU and bedridden for two months. She suffered from language dysfunction, swallowing dysfunction, decreased range of motion of lower limb joints, slight varus of ankle joints and other signs.Also accompanied by postural hypotension, mood is unstable due to long-term bedridden。

With the help of medical staff, li USES the robot every day to stand up.When li ** used the robot for a week, she could stand for about 10 minutes, monitor her blood pressure and heart rate in real time, and there was no obvious fluctuation. The situation of postural hypotension was improved.After three weeks of standing training, the patients’ lung function was enhanced, sputum volume was reduced, and a small part could be expelled through the mouth. The muscle strength of lower limbs reached 3+ level, and the patients’ mood and mood were significantly improved.

The successful treatment of severe and critical cases is the key to reduce mortality.The frontline medical staff are still fighting against the god of death. With the improvement of ICU patients, we are more confident that this new coronavirus pneumonia outbreak will also win. We also hope that the iuco robot can help more ICU patients recover and overcome the disease as soon as possible.


Unity, fight the epidemic!
