According to Zulinsky, during warming, the risk of getting the flu and SARS increases.

 

Sergey Zulinsky,

Head of the Health Center of the Regional Center for Medical Prevention:

About five years ago, we had frosts from the beginning of December to mid-February at 30 degrees. There was no epidemic at all that year. It comes when warming and slush come. At this time, you need to take care - be sure to take vaccinations, wear a mask in transport and public places. Plus, wash your hands and nasal cavity after returning from the street.

As a rule in winter, the number of bruises, sprains and fractures increases several times. The reasons are ice and carelessness.

“Three years ago I worked at Motorschiki. On average, there were about 150 complaints with injuries per day. On one of the especially “icy” days, we reached 400 people. I had to additionally call the doctors - we did not have time to see all the patients. Injury under icy conditions increases three times, ”said Zulinsky.

Especially careful at this time you need to be elderly people, a fall can result in a fracture of the femoral neck.

 

The doctor also notes that with sudden changes in temperature, weather-dependent people suffer. The most susceptible category is hypertension.

Sergey Zulinsky,

Head of the Health Center of the Regional Center for Medical Prevention:

There is no special cure for this. Pensioners on these days are better off going outside. My mother, who was very weather dependent, was saved by a magnetic bracelet. With him, she suffered extreme weather changes much better.

During a sharp change in weather, a weather dependent person complains of rapid fatigue, high irritability, increased aggressiveness, adrenaline rush, poor health, depression and depressed mood.
