About idiots and ticks the former…

About idiots and ticks Writes a former researcher and now an engineer–biotechnologist: “for the Last 7 years doing tick-borne infections, in particular, the development, testing and production of test–systems for diagnostics Probably due to the prof deformatsii I believed that the danger of ticks are obvious to all Well there, no details, but obvious well I now realize that to fill the laptop coffee is, most likely, the end of the laptop, although part of the technique I – a complete moron And those who is far from ticks and infections seem to know that the tick bite is extremely shitty for bitten Especially if it bit him in Siberia, it turned Out, however, that idiots, treating encephalitis paracetamol, live among us and seemingly quite sane Heartbreaking story about the idiocy, details about the tick bites – what you in it for and a lot more to live read below Actually writing a post me spodvig the case with my friends, who has a lot of rough and tumble In General, a highly respected gentleman and, in my opinion, a much more sensible and practical than I am This fine citizen refused to travel on kilbarrack for the reason that it hurts during questioning, it turned out, somewhere on the way from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg, where he was bitten by a tick three weeks, the temperature has jumped up under 40, began a fever – all this “success” was treated with paracetamol and a hot lemon tea during the half-hour (!) a conversation with a bunch of medical terms and a three-story Mat, managed to convince him to donate blood for tick-borne infection test Results: Lyme disease – exactly the encephalitis in question the Result of a conversation with a very high quality infectious diseases: external manifestations more like encephalitis, the Result of a conversation with the sick: “something tells me that this is not Lyme disease”, “I don’t have to go to hospital, I have a job If you go to the hospital, I would like to lose it,” and (pam–PA–RAM!) “well, Yes, I understand that I may be blind/deaf/have a stroke, but I’m an ADULT AND will make my own DECISION” For all independently making the decision of fairytale idiots, and just for those who are not in the theme, food for thought: the Tick-borne infections are a whole bunch in Addition to encephalitis and Lyme disease, which are more or less on hearing and babesiosis, rickettsiosis, granularly the anaplasmosis, monocytic erlihioz and other language–break down–infection All the happiness you get barely a tick bites you – the agents of all this shit living in his saliva But not every tick, and not a full set Here as casual sex without a condom – not the fact that after that you will find AIDS, hepatitis C, syphilis and gonorrhea But not the fact that it all will pass you by going Back to mites – most likely (and most terrible) to earn encephalitis and Lyme disease What are the risks? Encephalitis is an alignment get off easy fright, with good die But most likely, it paralyzes you Likely hands, or one of them Is forever and is repaired in Addition can blind and/or deaf, In principle, if you have talent and balls, will be able to make a career in science Example is Mikhail Chumakov In 28 years, went to Siberia to study a ferocious and unknown at the time the disease the Disease was tick-borne encephalitis, and he had to implement his own ideas on the subject of how it is treated At the end he not only survived, but also, deaf and partially paralyzed, tens of years engaged in the study of disease, which so cruelly He suffered a lot of what has been achieved in this field, and to top it all bequeathed his body to the Institute To colleagues studied the inside of a man, 56 years problemshigh encephalitis Everyone such a heroic perspective to spit in the face of illness and death does not appeal, keep the following in mind: if you Kusano mite in European territories is likely to cost we and ticks are not really infected – according to various estimates, from a few percent to a few tenths of a percent, and die from tick-borne encephalitis 2 people out of 1000 THIS does NOT MEAN THAT he will take YOU If you are bitten by a tick in Siberia or the far East, it’s much sadder You can get far Eastern encephalitis, and of 100 patients die 80 Perhaps this figure would be somewhat less, if not the level of funding for medicine and the “ease” of getting to the hospitals in these parts, but even with these factors it scares Lyme Disease Starts with high temperature, but not necessarily with her, and such beautiful rings on the site of the bite (scientifically — erythema) Then our beloved paralysis, only this time the problem is not with arms, but with a full face Then problems with joints (e.g., wild pain in them, to such an extent that it is impossible to move), heart, vision, hearing, Then the skin thins, becomes dry like parchment paper and is bluish spots In General, the problem becomes many, and all so different Some people suffering from chronic Lyme disease, I assure you that’s worse than encephalitis What to do until a bit: vaccination against encephalitis is February the month when it’s time to sway her to do for the season, Keep in mind that it is a three-phase – stabbing are three times, with a certain interval If you have been ill with encephalitis, the immune system you have a life Well, or if you get sick again – will be a new word in medicine, Vaccination is the most effective that you can think of given the choice, take the import of the vaccine AND do NOT GIVE a DIVORCE at the same time to be vaccinated against hepatitis, influenza, the Irish Vaccination – not the area where the opt – profitable business From Lyme disease vaccine done Again, even if you are already sick, nothing prevents you from catching it again What to do if you are bitten by the FIRST — carefully take out the tick’s Main purpose is to pull the tick entirely, not shifting the head, where salivary glands, which borrelii or viral particles, or anyone else bloodthirsty, you know, If you tore the head off, to pick out her now like a splinter, a needle do Not forget to calcined needle in the flame of lighters the SECOND puts the tick in a jar, a bottle – anything to take to the lab Mite not push THIRD – hand over the tick on the analysis in the SES If the tick was sick, it does not mean that you are 100% sick, But preventive meds you feed the FOURTH in 10 days after being bitten donate blood Lyme disease and encephalitis research Method RT – PCR after 2 weeks on immunoglobulins M encephalitis, a through Z week – immunoglobulin M Lyme disease in General, ideally you still need a doctor to tell you, but the ideal is not always With the results of the tests (positive) go to the doctor And do not pull with campaign, the same Lyme disease is very treatable if treated in its early stages of Chronic misconceptions: 1) ticks do not jump at you from the trees They don’t jump, They crawl from the grass or bushes (above 1-1. 5 m on the Bush tick is usually not raised) 2) if you have encephalitis/Lyme disease, it is not contagious to others can sneeze on them all you want But if you have encephalitis and you are breast – feeding, have a chance to pass it on to the baby through the milk by the Way, you can earn encephalitis, drinking cow’s and goat’s milk (unboiled) And, for the record There is a tick-borne infection, which are not as scary as encephalitis with Lyme disease and found them just a couple of decades ago, Respectively, they will check you, not every lab So if after a tick bite results in Lyme disease with encephalitis is negative, but you’re already the second month of lying in the hospital with a fever, body aches, diarrhea and a diagnosis of “SARS under the question,” looking for a good infectious disease doctor Because it is possible that you have, for example, anaplasmosis granoulozitarnae the more Likely you will survive, and will not be paying those consequences that borreliosis – entsefalitnye But 2 months in the hospital with an unclear diagnosis – it’s a shitty way to spend the summer!”
