The name of his disease is tattooed for alleged collapse of the health system

Given the uncertainty caused by contagion by Covid-19 and the fear that the imminent produces collapse of health centers, some people from the capital of San Luis Potosi, have chosen to tattoo on their skin the names of some of their chronic diseasesdegenerative blood type and titles of medicines to which they are allergic, so that in case of entering a hospital and if they were in a situation that prevented them from having knowledge of what was happening, medical personnel could have this essential information at their disposal at the time of serve them.

With phrases like “implant of …” “allergic to …” “I suffer from …”, begin the sentences of tattoos that people with medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, epilepsy, lupus, among others, seek protect your integrity in the event of falling in a hospital and not being able to provide this information that is so essential to your medical care.

This was one of the reasons that led Emanuel Sandoval to make this type of tattoo.

“The image says the condition with which I live and blood type. I did this tattoo after a hypoglycemia (fainting) that I had and that the Red Cross paramedic stole my belongings and knocked me unconscious on a ridge, this It happened to me in Tijuana. Now with the coronavirus epidemic, it has become more than necessary to have this type of information within reach, especially for those who suffer from any disease, “said Emanuel.

Also for Willibaldo Ibarguengoitia, this type of tattoo seemed appropriate, since he suffers from type two diabetes and reports that this disease sometimes causes nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, tremors and even fainting.

“Now more than ever we must take care of ourselves, we take our necessary sanitary measures and medical care, but it never hurts to have this type of information on hand, more now than if you go to a hospital, we may go alone, or we may be transferred without any company that can refer our medical information, “said Willibaldo.

The same action has been used by people like Daniel Alba, who want to provide quick medical information in the event of a health complication that does not give them the opportunity to provide their clinical history. Daniel, who has one of the rarest blood types, AB negative, decided to tattoo this information on his left wrist.

In his own words, he mentioned that as a result of a severe accident and when faced with the problem of blood donation, he decided to make his RH visible with ink on his skin, for fear of falling into the hospital today and due to lack of time and information they do not get to the necessary donors who could help them save their lives in the face of a clinical complication such as Covid-19, also insisted that “I have the rarest blood type, AB-, only 0.6% of the population, or 1 in 67 people, that’s why I got it tattooed. ”

Tattoo studios like Pink Tattoo mentioned that this style of tattoos have been in demand for quite some time. “It is not something new, but the requests for this type of work have increased. People are afraid that due to the contingency they will not be treated promptly in hospitals, especially those who have more than one risk factor for the pandemic and Covid-19 infection. Fortunately, many of our clients attended the appointment before the call to “Stay at home”, and today they already have their medical information in a tattoo ”.

Today the world of tattooing has diversified and the complexes and prejudices that this type of body intervention once meant to society have been left behind. Today tattoos give way to new horizons, which can not only be beneficial for those who decide to capture images with deep meaning on their skin, but also that may provide some reference that will help the person who wears it in the future.

However, the medical vision cannot be neglected, for the General Clinical Dr., José Luis López, this way of providing this type of information to medical personnel can be beneficial, although with some risks, “risks I mean that patients suffering from type 1 and 2 diabetes, when carrying out some bodily modification such as tattoos, may cause them some susceptibility to infections, however, if they go to a suitable place, properly disinfected and put into practice the necessary care, they can without doubt to carry it out.

This way of providing medical information about the patients being treated, especially in the emergency department, has been used for several years. The only difference is that people who came to the consultation or were seriously ill in an emergency room, carried a metal plate with their conditions and blood type engraved on it, it is surprising, as the ways of reporting have been transformed to over the years, but his goal remains permanent. Is it beneficial in terms of the speed of the information? Yes, but also no hemotherapy technician will trust a tattoo, – this referring to the type of blood; the most ethical and professional thing that can be done is to prepare the necessary studies to provide the patient with timely medical attention, ”he said.

Similarly, in these moments of health contingency, it is understood that the population wants to foresee any situation, especially if they are people with a serious illness and that in these times of health crisis they are more vulnerable, for this reason Dr. López added that “The initiative is appreciated, which will be very timely to attend to them as soon as possible if they should fall urgently to a hospital, especially now that they are living through complicated times caused by the SARS Coronavirus 2 pandemic.”


Doctors adopt medicine promoted by Trump to combat Covid-19

Faced with the numbers and in the absence of known effective treatments, front-line doctors said they started using hydroxychloroquine and related chloroquine in patients who are deteriorating, because some small studies suggest a possible benefit.

Some said they had been pressured by patients to use the therapies widely touted by Trump and some of his supporters.

“I could take it,” Trump said Saturday, referring to hydroxychloroquine, although it has tested negative for the coronavirus twice, according to the White House. “We only hear really positive things and continue to collect the data.”

Possible side effects of hydroxychloroquine include vision loss and heart problems.

However, doctors interviewed by Reuters said they were comfortable prescribing the drug for a short time for patients with coronavirus, because the risks are relatively low and the therapies are inexpensive and generally available.

However, the protocols that indicate how these drugs should be used vary from hospital to hospital, including when to prescribe them and whether to combine them with other medications.

In addition, some studies with promising results involved patients who used therapy for mild or early-stage disease, so many of those people are likely to have recovered on their own. Patients admitted to hospitals in the United States are generally much sicker than the mild cases cited in the studies. According to doctors, these factors have made it difficult for them to determine if medications are making a difference.

“I have seen hundreds of patients with severe COVID and most of these people take hydroxychloroquine,” Dr. Mangala Narasimhan, regional director of critical care for Northwell Health, a system of 23 hospitals in New York, said in an email.

“In my opinion, although it is very early, I don’t see a dramatic improvement in hydroxychloroquine in these patients.”

Dr Daniel McQuillen, an infectious disease specialist at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, Massachusetts, said he has so far prescribed a course of hydroxychloroquine for about 30 COVID-19 patients because the drug has shown “a little bit of antiviral activity ” But he has not seen “marked improvement in patients.”

“Anecdotally, it may have had a limited effect in patients with milder disease,” said McQuillen. The therapy “has had no effect in limiting or slowing the progression of our patients who were at or near the ICU level when they arrived.”



Panic shopping leaves lupus patient without medicine

MEXICO.- Because the drug Hydroxychloroquine was mistakenly associated as a curative or preventive treatment against covid-19, the shortage was already present and those who really need it have not been able to buy it.

“There is a shortage of hydroxychloroquine and they don’t know when it will arrive. My mom is running out, Monday is the last pill to take and they give her a lot of pain and she stays crippled, she can’t even sleep from the pain that they give her, “said Patricia Gomar. Mrs. Eva was diagnosed with lupus in the elderly two years ago.

The medicine has allowed him to cope with the pain in his body. Due to the lack of hydroxychloroquine in pharmacies, her daughter had to look for it outside the country and did not obtain a favorable response. “In the whole country it is scarce and they don’t have a date, they don’t have when. They don’t give me a date to find it.

I spoke to a relative that I have in Tepatitlán and there they told him, as soon as he told them the name of the medicine, that they were selling it for covid-19, ”he added.

In past days, COPRISJAL restricted the sale of medicines to the public as long as they do not present a prescription, but now it is scarce.

Hydroxychloroquine is prescribed for diseases like lupus and rheumatism. In desperation to get treatment for her mother, Patricia asks for help on camera from Milenio Jalisco.

“If there is someone who please has bought enough boxes, they will sell them to me, it doesn’t matter, they will sell them to me,” he asked.

In the event that someone has mistakenly bought this medicine, a call is made to provide it to those who do need it.
