Knowing everyday ade patient expired (died) from the diseases, made me more cautious. When u feel very sick, or ur baby is very sick, do not delay. Go to emergency department immediately. Seek for medical advice. If it is ur baby, bring them to peadtrician. Do not go to general clinic yg swasta tu kalau dh 3-4 demam makan ubat still x recover. Get what i mean?
Now is denggue outbreak season. I rase 1 malaysia kene. Some of the mortality including babies and children. Ade yg adult but usually the adults come with other underlying diseases.
Tp yg baby and children ni. All are healthy and no underlying disease previously. Anak demam for almost 1 week and after that bila x aktif and uncautious br nak bwk g ED. That time platelet already less than 10. Medical team xde cara lain but have to incubate them.
Every one hour amik darah to cek the platelet. They hope the plt will increase. We in the lab also hope it will increase. When the hemorrage effect kidney n liver, nothing we can do. Just pray for magical.
That is about denggue. Pls. Be alert if anak kene gigit nyamuk. Monitor ade fever or not. If high temp je terus la bawak ke ED. At ED, they will do blood test, if all normal, no need to warded, but if platelet, wbc, HB, HCT problem, they will do further investigation. More blood tests
So parents pls la jgn questioned why asyik buat blood tests je. We want to know whats wrong with u or ur baby. Dh dpt tu sebab ape br la bole treat specifically.
Not a denggue case? Early this month, we receive full blood picture urgent for one baby. Other blood tests are ok. Fbp come back with some blasts. Blasts cell in blood indicate leukaemia. This baby hv sudden high fever. 2 weeks not recover. Before this very healthy.
Another case, toddler. Had multiple cases of fever in a year. Means kerap demam. Sebulan sekali demam. The parents bwk ke klinik biase je and bg ubat. 2 years old check up at KK, br parents bgtau anak kerap demam. Nurse refer ke hospital. We did several tests. Fbp has blast.
So sila jgn ambil mudah bila anak demam. A sudden high temp fever more than 38 degree, pls seek medical advice. Sometimes u get frustation bila ke hospital ni, x dpt what u expect, pergi hospital lain. Gov or private up to u.
Thats all i can share. Together we pray our children will always be healthy. InsyaAllah.
