A Nurse Anesthetist Shares His Disease Prevention Tips: Five Do’s and Three Don’ts 

 

新冠肺炎襲擊全球,第一線醫護人員最為艱苦。美國舊金山醫療機構的麻醉護理師賈維元表示,今年護士節(5月12日),是他工作以來過得最戰戰兢兢的節日。

 

 

While the novel coronavirus is raging around the world, frontline medical professionals are working extremely hard on their jobs. Wayne Jar, a nurse anesthetist at a medical center in San Francisco, said that this year's International Nurses Day ( May 12) was the most unnerving day he had ever experienced.

賈維元表示,為了準備接收大規模的新冠病毒病人,前一陣子除了急症或緊急手術外,大多數例行性手術都必須取消。令人憂心的是,目前美國各大醫院的醫療口罩、防護衣、呼吸器數量都不足之下,將會有許多病患得不到適當的照顧和治療,自己也暴露在染病風險較高的環境之中。此外,由於醫院主要財政收入來自手術房,當大多數的手術被取消,醫院面臨財政短缺,許多醫療人員被調到不同單位支援,甚至被迫減薪、放無薪假。

According to Wayne Jar, a while ago, many hospitals cancelled most surgeries, except emergency surgeries, to accomodate a big number of patients infected with the coronavirus. What is more worrying is that at present, the number of medical masks, protective clothing and respirators in major US hospitals are insufficient, and many patients will not be properly cared for and treated, and medical professionals will also be at high risk of infection. In addition, because the hospital's main income comes from the surgical operations, the hospital now faces a financial challenge as surgeries are being cancelled, and many medical professionals are transferred to different units to support the incoming patients and some staff members are even forced to reduce their pay or take unpaid time off.

 

賈維元剛開始也常為感染風險很大而感到擔憂,心情隨著同事間焦慮的氛圍而起伏。還好他的師父教給他很好的養生功法,透過每天勤練功,吸吐之間慢慢放下了無謂的擔憂,運用在太極門所學的三不(不生氣、不憂慮、不緊張)、五多(多洗手、多喝溫開水、多運動、多歡喜、多防範)來增強自己的免疫力。同時把這個好方法分享給大眾,希望大家都能增加自己的免疫能力,面對未來日新月異的病毒侵襲,能有強壯的身體來抵抗!

At the beginning, Wayne Jar was often worried about the risk of being infected. His moods were affected by the anxious atmosphere among colleagues. Fortunately, he has been practicing qigong at Tai Ji Men for years, where his grandmaster taught him a great way to enhance his health. Through daily practice of qigong, he has gradually let go of the unnecessary worries and enhanced his immune system by applying the principle of “Five Do’s and Three Don’ts” that he learned at Tai Ji Men. (The five do’s are: Wash your hands frequently. Drink more warm water. Do more exercise. Be happy. Be careful. The three don’t are: Don’t be angry. Don’t worry. Don’t be nervous.) “I now share these useful disease prevention tips with the public. I hope everyone can boost their immunity and stay healthy to protect themselves from future pandemics!”

It's Important to Reassure Patients in the Post-Pandemic Period

隨著灣區的疫情逐漸減緩,醫院開始恢復例行性手術,此時,由於要保護病人及醫療人員的安全,手術的病人都必須接受病毒測試,確定是陰性之後才能進行手術。這段期間來醫院的病人,常常深怕自己會染病。秉持醫療人員的良知良能,手術前,賈維元都會耐心地與病患溝通,讓他們了解醫院及醫療人員已經做好萬全準備,不用擔心,也希望他們帶著平靜的心進入手術房,並祝他們手術成功,這讓病患和家屬都深表感激。

As the pandemic in the Bay Area gradually slowed down now, hospitals began to resume routine surgeries. At this time, to ensure the safety of patients and medical staff, all patients who undergo surgery must undergo a virus test, and they must be tested negative before the operation. Many patients who come to the hospital during this period often fear that they will get infected. Guided by his conscience and utilizing his professional skills, Wayne Jar would patiently communicate with his patients before the operation to let them know that the hospital and medical staff are well trained, so they wouldn’t feel so worried. He always hoped that they would enter the operating room with a calm mind and wish them a successful surgery, and his patients and their families expressed their heartfelt appreciation for his efforts.
