During pregnancy, the female body becomes particularly sensitive to many completely safe substances and various kinds of irritants, which is associated with the production of a large amount of female hormones during this period. A variety of substances can act as irritants to the female body, for example, certain foods, cosmetics, and environmental factors, including sunlight. That is why many women wonder whether ultraviolet is harmful during pregnancy.

What is UFO?

Ultraviolet rays are electromagnetic waves that are in the range between violet light and x-rays. Depending on the wavelength, there are long-wave, medium-wave and short-wave ultraviolet radiation. Each of these species is used in medicine to treat certain diseases.

In addition, UV is used in tanning beds, which in recent years grow like mushrooms after rain.

But is it safe for UFO during pregnancy or is it better to abstain from it?

What are the effects of UV? First you need to divide it into local and general.

Common most often just used in tanning beds. Its main effect is to stimulate the production of vitamin D. In our country, especially in its northern latitudes, the lack of sun is a rather important problem, because vitamin D is produced in the skin only under the influence of the sun. Replacing the sun can serve as a UFO.

But, like any other procedure, ultraviolet irradiation during pregnancy should be used only as directed by a doctor! The fact is that ultraviolet irradiation, firstly, can cause an increase in pigment spots, and this can create some aesthetic problems for the expectant mother.

Secondly, and it has been proven by dozens of studies, the overuse of the common UFO seriously increases the risk of skin cancer. In addition, with excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation on the skin in the body, the concentration of free radicals (biological substances with high chemical activity), which have a destructive effect on the cells of all organs, increases.

Despite the fact that general exposure has a beneficial effect on the resistance to infectious diseases (which is very important for pregnant women), some specific effects of this method make you take it very seriously. For these reasons, general ultraviolet irradiation in pregnant women should be carried out only under the supervision of a physician and strictly for medical reasons.

Can a UFO during pregnancy be used for local treatment? Yes you can. And even necessary, because the use of UV in the treatment of diseases of the tonsils (tonsillitis), oral cavity, pharynx and external auditory canal reduces the dose of drugs, many of which are valid for use during pregnancy, but with the proviso “if the risk from the disease exceeds the risk from treatment. "

The local bactericidal action of ultraviolet rays in these cases helps to destroy pathogenic microbes, and the effect of stimulating the healing that ultraviolet rays have, significantly speeds up recovery.

In addition, UFO is used locally in the treatment of infected wounds and erysipelas of various localization - here it also contributes to the rapid elimination of microbes, the cleaning of wounds and their healing. When applied topically, the UVA does not have as pronounced side effects as the general, although it also has contraindications.

UV (both local and general) is contraindicated for common inflammations of the skin of various origin, acute pustular skin diseases, psoriasis, eczema, dysfunction of the thyroid gland (its increased activity), diseases of the adrenal glands, severe diseases of the liver and kidneys, some other pathological skin conditions , mucous membranes and internal organs.

All the subtleties of the use of ultraviolet irradiation, especially during pregnancy, can be taken into account by the doctor who decides whether you should be prescribed this treatment method, so do not try to do it yourself. You can harm both yourself and your future baby. Therefore, if you are sick, give up self-treatment, consult a doctor and be sure of your health.

Nose and throat UFO procedure

Not only drugs, but also physiotherapy techniques of exposure help to cope with the diseases. Physiotherapy is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic diseases. One of the most famous methods of such treatment is ultraviolet irradiation. Consider what constitutes this procedure and how the ultraviolet irradiation of the nose and throat helps in various diseases of this area.

What is this method

Ultraviolet irradiation, or ultraviolet radiation, is a method of exposure to the invisible eye with electromagnetic radiation in a specific wavelength range. This method is widely used in the treatment of various inflammatory diseases.

Due to the effects of these rays in the irradiated zone, the release of biologically active components (histamine and others). When these substances enter the bloodstream, they increase blood flow to the affected area and ensure the transfer of leukocytes to the inflammatory focus.

What effects does this technique have?

  • Relieves inflammation.
  • Anesthetizing.
  • Promotes tissue regeneration and speeds up recovery processes after injuries and injuries.
  • Has a bactericidal effect. UFO causes the death of microbes on the surface of the wound, and in the foci of inflammation.
  • Contributes to the normalization of all types of metabolism (protein, lipid, etc.).

Due to this versatile influence, UV is used to treat various diseases. This method of treatment has found wide application in the treatment of ENT diseases.

When it is recommended

With the development of ENT pathology specialist may recommend UFO in the following situations:

  1. In angina, it is prescribed in the first days of the disease with catarrhal form, when the patient does not have high fever and purulent raids. At this stage, early exposure to the inflamed tonsils can prevent the development of further angina. Also, the UVA is recommended at the recovery stage, when the tonsils have already cleared from purulent raids and the patient's condition returned to normal. In this case, the procedures help to shorten the rehabilitation period and speed up the recovery process.
  2. When sinusitis and other types of sinusitis. UFOs can only be recommended for catarrhal forms, when there is no pus, or during the recovery phase, in order to speed up the healing process.
  3. When adenoids in children. This method helps to remove puffiness and disinfect the mucous membrane. A course of such procedures helps prevent the development of edema and inflammatory processes.
  4. With a cold. The procedure copes well with the bacterial cold at all stages.
  5. For the treatment of diseases of the ear. With external and average non-purulent otitis, this method helps to cope with the infection and reduce inflammation.
  6. When inflammation of the back of the throat (pharyngitis). Works well in both acute and chronic forms of the disease.

NOSE and pharynx UFO helps to fight both acute and chronic inflammatory processes

There are many conditions in which the doctor may recommend treatment with physiotherapy. Before this, it is necessary to clearly establish the cause of the disease, since this method has a number of contraindications in order not to harm and cause serious complications.

Contraindications for prescription

Despite the positive effects of ultraviolet radiation, there are a number of contraindications for its use:

  1. In patients with cancer or suspicion of them.
  2. Autoimmune lupus and other diseases accompanied by increased sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation.
  3. At the stage of acute purulent inflammation, which proceeds with a high temperature, intoxication and fever.
  4. Tendency to the development of bleeding and increased fragility of blood vessels.
  5. In a number of other diseases and conditions, such as tuberculosis, arterial hypertension, gastric ulcer, etc.

Important! Given the long list of contraindications, only the treating doctor should examine the UFO after examining the patient.

During pregnancy, the appointment of physiotherapy should be agreed with the doctor. This method is allowed to apply during pregnancy in inflammatory diseases of the nasal cavity and throat after consulting a doctor.

How do they do it

In order to perform the procedure, you can contact the clinic or hospital. There are special devices that generate the desired ultraviolet radiation.

When it is not possible to do the procedure in the clinic, then you can purchase a portable device for use at home

In addition, a portable UFO unit was developed for patients. It is very easy to use at home. It is suitable for both adults and children.

How is the procedure:

  1. For carrying out local irradiation, special sterile tubes are used. They come in different shapes and diameters for irradiating different areas.
  2. Preheat the lamp for several minutes to stabilize its parameters.
  3. Begin the procedure with a few minutes, gradually increasing the duration of the session.
  4. After the procedure, the lamp is turned off, and the patient must rest for half an hour.

Quartz treatment techniques depend on the disease. For example, in acute pharyngitis, the back surface of the pharynx is irradiated. The procedure is carried out every day or every other day, starting with 0.5 biodoses, and if everything is in order, it is adjusted to 1–2 biodoses.

Different sterile tubes are needed for different irradiated zones, suitable for size and shape.

In chronic tonsillitis, a special oblique tube is used. Begin to irradiate with 0.5 biodoses and gradually increase to 2 biodoses. Alternate right and left tonsils alternately. Such courses are repeated in order to prevent 2 times a year. In case of otitis, the external auditory canal is irradiated, and in case of a cold, the tube is introduced into the eve of the nose.

Questions to the doctor

Question: How often can the UFO be made to a child?

Answer: The standard duration of treatment is 5-6 days. Procedures are done once a day or every other day. However, it all depends on the disease and associated diseases of the patient.

Question: If there is a lump on the nose, you can irradiate it with the help of a UFO.

Answer: No, before applying the UVA, you need to find out what kind of education it is. This method is contraindicated in malignant tumors and suspicion of them.

Question: Is it possible to use such treatment if I have a temperature of 37.2 and a purulent rhinitis is flowing from my nose?

Answer: No, if you have a purulent process, then the UVA may provoke the development of complications and an increase in the inflammatory response.

With proper implementation of UFOs can be an excellent tool in the treatment of inflammatory diseases of the nose and throat. It must be remembered that such thermal procedures have a number of contraindications and restrictions, so their purpose should be agreed with the doctor.

  • immunity increases, and this is the most important thing that a woman should have during pregnancy,
  • improves mood
  • metabolism improves, a pleasant sensation of heat appears
  • the work of the endocrine glands is activated,
  • hemoglobin level increases,
  • leaves depression and bad mood.

UVA during pregnancy, the harm of ultraviolet radiation during pregnancy

UFO during pregnancy

The source of ultraviolet irradiation may be as the sun's rays, and lamps in the solarium or lamps of other devices that are used in physiotherapy. The safe use of UFOs is considered the period at the end of 32 weeks of pregnancy, when the third trimester begins, when the laying of the organs and systems of the fetus has already been completed.

Ultraviolet will positively affect both the mother and the child. So, what is the beneficial effect of ultraviolet for a pregnant woman:

  • immunity increases, and this is the most important thing that a woman should have during pregnancy,
  • improves mood
  • metabolism improves, a pleasant sensation of heat appears
  • the work of the endocrine glands is activated,
  • hemoglobin level increases,
  • leaves depression and bad mood.

There are also cautions when tanning during pregnancy.

  • Light eyes and hair. Instead of sunburn there is often a burn.
  • Light eyes, hair and skin, but a tan appears.
  • Dark eyes, hair. If there is a burn, then it can go into a tan.
  • Dark-skinned and dark-haired people tan and get an even and beautiful tan without a burn.

Identification of the skin phototype is necessary to determine the time spent on the sun. And also it is necessary to know when choosing a sunscreen.

The smaller the person's phototype, the more powerful the protection of the cream is needed.

UV damage during pregnancy

Women during pregnancy are very sensitive to ultraviolet rays in the first trimester, when the baby’s organs are just beginning to form. Any excessive exposure to the sun can cause the development of defects in the fetus. In this regard, doctors recommend to refrain from ultraviolet radiation during this period of pregnancy. In small doses, you can sunbathe from the second trimester. You can afford to sunbathe as a natural way on the beach, and in the solarium.

Sunbathe should be properly in order not to get burned and in order not to harm the fetus. Be sure to consider the time spent in the sun. The most favorable time spent in the sun is the time from 10 to 17 pm. Excessive exposure to the sun can cause a decrease in blood pressure, as well as uterine bleeding with abortion. It is best to sunbathe under an umbrella, it perfectly saves the skin from the negative effects of ultraviolet rays. Thus, tanning for a pregnant woman is no exception, but you need to know the measure.

Interestingly, UFOs can also be used in conjunction with other therapeutic measures to enhance traditional medicines.

UFO - electromagnetic waves that are in the range between violet and x-rays. In medicine, depending on the disease, waves of different effects are used. Each type of wave is used to treat various diseases. UFO used in tanning beds.

Effect of UV

So, you first need to be divided into local and general effect. Common is used just in tanning beds. Effect - stimulation of vitamin D production.

In our country there are such latitudes where the sun is a problem, and vitamin D can be produced only when exposed to sunlight. Therefore, the replacement of the sun can serve as a UFO. Like the other procedure, the UVA should be applied under the supervision of a physician. UFOs can cause increased pigment spots on the body, and overuse of UFOs can develop the risk of skin cancer. In addition to all this, excessive exposure to the sun can lead to a concentration of free radicals that can destroy the cells of all organs.

For the local treatment under the influence of UFO

This method is very useful and not harmful to a pregnant woman. For example, in the treatment of tonsil tonsillitis and external hearing aids, the dose of drugs can be significantly reduced. The local bactericidal effect of the UFO helps to destroy microbes and increase the effect of promoting healing.

In addition, UVB is used for local use in the treatment of infected wounds and inflammations. Local and general ultraviolet irradiation may be contraindicated in some inflammatory processes, such as eczema, psoriasis, or other diseases associated with disorders of the thyroid gland. All the subtleties associated with UV and pregnancy can take into account the doctor, so you should not use UV without consulting a doctor. Thus, you can harm both yourself and your unborn child. Therefore, if a cold caught you should not resort to self-treatment, you need to contact your doctor.

To their use in the waiting period of the baby should be approached very responsibly!

Cold and pregnancy

How simple it all was before!

Could not, managed to jump the temperature - will save antibiotics. But now the two of you, the little life that has arisen in you, makes you wonder how to cure a common cold during pregnancy and how to prevent it.

And they are put off to the side of the pill, and the collection of popular recipes becomes a reference book.

That's just not always help advice grandmothers. What to do?

Of course, the best thing is not to get sick. When everyone is sneezing and coughing around, you should try to visit public places much less often.

Do not deny yourself a walk (the baby needs fresh air), but choose for them quiet, uncrowded corners of the park.

Just dress according to the weather, do not wrap up, so as not to sweat and not increase the likelihood of prodding.

Pregnancy is not the best time for tempering the body.

If the colds are sick home, protect yourself from viruses with a gauze bandage. And, although it is forbidden to make vaccines against pregnant women, it is possible to arrange for the prevention of colds during pregnancy with garlic and onions.

These antimicrobial agents can not only eat, but also spread out around the room, pre-cut into slices. Регулярно проветривайте квартиру.

Пропейте курс витаминов, рекомендованных беременным.

Поможет и ароматерапия с использованием масел пихты, эвкалипта и розмарина. These plants, as well as lemon, lavender and mint, increase immunity, which in a pregnant woman is slightly reduced.

In this case, if not treated, you can make a lot of trouble for yourself - perhaps premature rupture of the amniotic fluid, increased blood loss during childbirth, the development of inflammatory diseases of the internal genital organs, complications in the postpartum period - and for an unborn baby being infected already in the mother's body, he may even die or be born with various malformations, chronic infections.

Therefore, you should carefully listen to your body.

If you are worried about a runny nose and cough during pregnancy, and your throat began to wheeze, then it looks like you have ARVI (acute respiratory viral infection).

The disease can occur without high fever. Within 3-5 days, it may clearly not manifest itself, but at the same time you will be contagious to others.

Ill to be about a week, of course, if you follow all the recommendations of the doctor and avoid complications.

Chills for 3 days, headache, weakness, weakness, pain in the muscles and eyes, nasal congestion, sore throat, dry cough during pregnancy, sometimes accompanied by nausea and vomiting, indicate that you could not avoid the flu.

This is a more dangerous disease, as the influenza virus lowers the immune system, against the background of which chronic diseases can be exacerbated.

Penetrating through the respiratory tract, it affects the mucous membrane, increases the permeability of the walls of blood vessels.

When flu is common intestinal disorders. What is especially dangerous, in about 10% of cases pneumonia can be a complication of the flu during pregnancy.

Experts especially fear the toxic form of this disease in pregnant women, which occurs in 20-30% of patients.

The body of a pregnant woman is especially susceptible not only to various viruses, but also to the perception of any drugs.

To their use in the waiting period of the baby should be approached very responsibly!

Vladimir Igorevich Gushchin, Candidate of Medical Sciences. Science, obstetrician-gynecologist of the “Medical Women's Center Emily”: “Ordinary ARD with rhinitis, as a rule, does not threaten the health of the unborn child.

But this does not mean that it does not need to be treated. Obstruction of nasal breathing causes suffering to the pregnant woman herself, and frequent coughing during pregnancy can provoke the threat of termination of pregnancy. The disease itself is not so terrible as its complications.

But viral infections during pregnancy

- SARS, flu and herpes with cytomegalovirus, which are also transmitted by airborne droplets - can cause fetal abnormalities up to missed abortion and malformations.

It all depends on the time limit. A cold during pregnancy is dangerous in the early stages (first trimester). Viral infections are especially dangerous up to 16 weeks of pregnancy, when the formation of internal organs and placenta occurs.

When the fetus is infected at this point, the central nervous system is the first to suffer, developmental defects of the brain and internal organs are possible.

It is important to consider that it is dangerous not to cure the disease at all, or to self-medicate! ”

Kamil Rafaelevich Bakhtiyarov, head. The gynecological department of the “Family” clinic: “Immunity decreases during pregnancy, the probability of exacerbation of chronic diseases is high with any, even the most mild, cold. Therefore, treatment is necessary. "

The first group includes those that are categorically contraindicated, as they can cause a sudden termination of pregnancy or various fetal deformities.

For example, tegracycline antibiotics, such as doxycycline.

Preparations of the second group are undesirable, but are necessary by medical indications.

Suppose Corinfar is a drug to reduce pressure. Such drugs are recommended with extreme caution.

There are also quite “safe” drugs during pregnancy that can alleviate a particular disease: we are talking about a number of hormonal drugs, drugs, penicillin drugs, etc.

It is necessary to consult a doctor about receiving any funds. ”

To treat colds during pregnancy? The main thing is to understand that it is possible, and even necessary, to treat a cold during pregnancy, but at the same time it is possible to learn what to do during treatment and what is strictly forbidden.

We'll have to remember the recipes of grandmothers: beat the body with water with a weak solution of vinegar instead of antipyretic, wipe the nasal sinuses with bags of heated salt or sand, or put an egg, get rid of a cold in pregnancy with salt solution, and rinse the throat with herbs and furatsilin .

The rest will be prompted by the doctor. He will choose an optimal and harmless therapy.

More often drink something warm: green tea or tea with milk, broth hips. But at the same time monitor the amount of drunk and selected fluid.

Gargle with sage, a solution of baking soda (it can also be instilled into the nose). Also effective in rinsing with sea salt, with infusion of oak bark, chamomile, calendula.

Take medicine with snow root, thermopsis.

Make an infusion of rose hips and viburnum or lemon balm and sage, mixed in equal proportions. Before use, it is desirable to add to the broth drops of sea buckthorn oil.

And between meals, dissolve one teaspoon of honey.

3–5 drops of menthol oil in the nose in each nostril, breathing in and out. Also lubricate the forehead, temples, skin behind the ears and nose with this oil.

DURING PREGNANCY DO NOT:

Take medications without a doctor's permission, including nasal drops.

Do foot baths, soar feet.

Strong heating is generally best done only with the approval of the attending physician!

O6 UHF and physiotherapy procedures during pregnancy are recommended to be forgotten (you can do a nose and throat UFO, inhalation of drugs in consultation with the obstetrician-gynecologist).

Conduct active fortification. Not all vitamins will be useful to you now.

Physical therapy with ultraviolet waves in the treatment of pharyngitis has proved effective. As at the time of exacerbation, and in a chronic form.

What is a nose UFO?

There are a large number of methods used in the field of otolaryngology, for the treatment of pathologies associated with the nasopharyngeal mucosa. Traditional activities in conjunction with physiotherapy, show good results.

One of the most common and often prescribed, for various diseases associated with the ear, throat, nose, is ultraviolet radiation (UV).

The principle of the UFO

The physiotherapy procedure of the UFD is based on electromagnetic rays of various sizes. The range of their action is 400 nm. The wavelength of ultraviolet radiation depends on the diagnosis of the patient:

  • shortwave radiation has antiviral, bactericidal effect, destroys toxins, destroys the causative agents of staphylococcus,
  • medium waves stimulate the body to synthesize vitamins, improve the immune system, have anesthetic, anti-inflammatory effect,
  • long rays have a photosensitizing property.

In otorhinolaryngology, UV is used to treat a number of diseases associated with the nasopharynx, which include:

  • angina, ultraviolet irradiation is assigned in the first stages, if there are no purulent formations and in the final,
  • sinusitis or sinusitis, use ultraviolet irradiation to improve the effect of drug treatment,
  • adenoids (in children), the application of the procedure will have a disinfecting effect on the mucous membrane of the nasal passage and relieve swelling,
  • In case of a cold, UFOs destroy bacteria and viruses at all stages of the disease.

Physical therapy with ultraviolet waves in the treatment of pharyngitis has proved effective. As at the time of exacerbation, and in a chronic form.

When ultraviolet waves are banned

Local irradiation with UV rays triggers a chemical reaction in the tissues, with a small amount of histamine released, serotonin, a vitamin D metabolite. They enter the bloodstream and increase blood flow, which delivers white blood cells to the site of inflammation.

Attention. UFO is appointed strictly according to clinical indications and with a certain time limit.

There are also contraindications in which ultraviolet radiation is not acceptable:

  • when making a diagnosis of cancer,
  • with individual intolerance to sunlight,
  • presence of autoimmune lupus,
  • inflammatory process, accompanied by purulent formations, high fever or fever,
  • tendency to bleeding due to the fragility of the vessel walls,
  • if there is a history of hypertension, gastric ulcer,
  • active phase tuberculosis
  • renal failure, thyrotoxicosis.

Important. Before using the UVA, it is necessary to consult a physiotherapist to assign an individual dosage.

Especially if the procedure is carried out UFO shed and nose at home. The frequency of procedures is determined by the doctor as needed.

Nasal physiotherapy

In each room for physiotherapy, there is an apparatus that generates the necessary amount of ultraviolet radiation for conducting UFOs. Also, there are portable devices with attached instructions on how to make nose and throat UFOs at home.

It can be used both for adults and children. Procedure:

  1. The lamp is heated to stabilize its parameters.
  2. Tubes of the different sizes, for various zones of application are included in the package with the device. The tube is inserted into the radiator screen and inserted into the irradiation zone.
  3. To irradiate the nasal mucosa, it is necessary to pre-rinse the sinuses. Introduce 5 mm tube, irradiate for 2 minutes. Every day the dose increases from 2 to 6 minutes (increasing every day for a minute), the course of treatment up to 6 days.
  4. For pharyngitis, a suitable sterile tip is taken, the back of the pharynx is irradiated. The procedure is performed every day. The initial dose of 0.5 is reduced to two, within four days, 0.5 dose is added.
  5. After carrying out the procedure and disconnecting the device from the mains, it is recommended to be at rest for 30 minutes, assuming a horizontal position.

When using the apparatus of UV for the treatment of pathology associated with the nasopharynx, it is necessary to take into account not unimportant factor. People with light skin type (red-haired or blond) are less resistant to UV light. Therefore, the time for the procedure should be spent less.

On the use of ultraviolet radiation, except in cases of contraindication, there is no age limit.

How often can you do ultraviolet irradiation of the nose and pharynx to a child, so that the procedure is beneficial and not harmful? Pediatricians recommend using the device in the period of exacerbation of the disease. Especially in the off-season period of viral epidemics. After consultation with your doctor and strictly age-appropriate doses. With chronic tonsillitis, ultraviolet physiotherapy is performed twice a year.

The possibility of the procedure during pregnancy

The gestation period limits the use of drugs. If a woman is sick, and treatment with traditional methods can do more harm to the child than the benefits of the mother. The question arises, is it possible to do ultraviolet irradiation of the nose during pregnancy? You can, after consulting a doctor, he will determine the time for the procedure, the order and the dose.

As a rule, if there are no concomitant diseases that are at risk, the parameters are the same as in ordinary patients.

Physiotherapy with the use of UV for a woman and an unborn child is completely harmless. Under the influence of ultraviolet radiation, bacteria and microbes are destroyed, so it will be a good alternative to nasal preparations. Many of them are contraindicated, especially in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Conclusion

Physiotherapy UFOs can benefit the body, increase the effect of drug treatment. But with proper use.

Only a doctor will be able to determine the feasibility of the procedure, the dosage of radiation, taking into account the clinical picture of the disease.

About 80% of pregnant women suffer from acute respiratory infections (influenza, parainfluenza, acute respiratory viral infections, adenovirus infection, etc.) during 9 months of waiting for a baby. No matter how safe and warm it is to dress, there are a lot of ways to get infected — either relatives bring home, or in the store, in the antenatal clinic you catch an infection.

Cold during pregnancy

The common cold (acute respiratory disease) is a very unpleasant disease that is activated during the cold season and does not spare children or adults, including expectant mothers. If you usually can afford to drink any pill, medicine and even a hundred grams to kill bacilli, then during pregnancy you are afraid of everything, so as not to harm the long-awaited baby.

About 80% of pregnant women suffer from acute respiratory infections (influenza, parainfluenza, acute respiratory viral infections, adenovirus infection, etc.) during 9 months of waiting for a baby. No matter how safe and warm it is to dress, there are a lot of ways to get infected — either relatives bring home, or in the store, in the antenatal clinic you catch an infection.

Cold prevention

  • Regularly walk in the fresh air. Choose for walking non-populous parks and squares. For a walk, dress according to the weather, no need to wrap up: if you sweat, the risk of catching a cold will be higher.
  • Take a prescribed multivitamin for pregnant women.
  • Pregnancy is not the best time to start hardening, especially if you just read about dousing with cold water before.
  • If someone from the family is sick, if possible isolate it in a separate room, select individual dishes and limit the contacts. Gauze dressing here will also be useful to you.
  • Aromatherapy will come to the rescue with the use of aromatic oils of fir, eucalyptus, rosemary, lemon, lavender and mint, which with their phytoncides will disinfect the air and even raise your immunity and mood. The main thing is to know the measure, do not overdo it.
  • Drink teas with herbs, dried berries, with jam. They have a tonic and tonic effect.
  • Do not forget to air the room.
  • Before leaving the house, smear your nose with oxolinic ointment.

Cold treatment during pregnancy

The symptoms are well known to everyone: weakness, headache, fever, soreness and sore throat, characteristic nasal congestion. Then cough, muscle aches, runny nose, sore throat becomes very strong ...

As soon as you feel weakness, drowsiness and slight sore throat, especially if you know that your sneezing mother-in-law has had a cold day before or that you have been visited, take action immediately. Drink hot tea with lemon and honey or hot milk with butter and honey, wrap yourself in a blanket and go to bed. If this does not help and you “unstuck” further, then we will be treated as follows:

  • Call a doctor and take sick leave. In pregnancy, the baby and mother are in the first place, work is secondary. It is especially important to be careful of the first 12 weeks, as the laying and development of all organs of the baby takes place. It is necessary not to be a hero, but to be treated at home under a blanket. Even a slight indisposition is fraught with complications, and a pregnant woman is already very vulnerable.
  • Even if you do not have a temperature, immediately ask your doctor what you can take at temperature, if it appears, when you cough and runny nose. Because on your own you can be treated with folk remedies, but only a doctor can prescribe you special medicines. You will pick up the drugs allowed on your gestational age.
  • Drink plenty of water. You can drink green tea, lime tea, tea with milk, milk. You can add to drink honey. At night it is good to drink a hot drink made from currants and raspberries rubbed with sugar, poured with hot water. At the same time watch the amount drunk and the amount of urine. And if you have a tendency to swelling, do not overdo it with drinking.
  • Rinse sore throat during pregnancy You can extract chamomile, calendula, oak bark, eucalyptus, solutions of sea salt, soda. At night it is useful to drink a decoction of sage in milk. You can take a teaspoon of sea buckthorn oil and hold it in your mouth as long as possible. Yes, it is tasteless, but it will envelop your neck and heal the mucous membrane.
  • Nose wash can be saline solution, chamomile. It is good to bury the nose with this oil: mix 15 drops of sea buckthorn oil and 1-2 drops of tea tree oil. Drip 2-3 drops in each nostril. Sea buckthorn will gently envelop the affected mucosa, and tea tree oil will have an antiseptic effect. If the nose is very blocked, it is better to drop a drop of baby drops for the nose than to suffocate from lack of air. Herbalists also recommend to bury the nose with fresh beet juice, drink a decoction of strawberry leaves. You can warm the nose with dry heat (salt, sand, boiled egg).
  • With coughing you can take a mixture with althea, licorice root syrup (as prescribed by a doctor and if there is no tendency to swelling), dissolve a teaspoon of honey in your mouth for a long time, you can do steam inhalation at home. For inhalation suitable potato decoction with soda, herbs (chamomile, sage, calendula, mint). Гомеопатические препараты от кашля также очень действенны и практически не имеют противопоказаний, но лучше, если лечить вас будет врач-гомеопат. Можно растирать грудь мазями для натираний при простуде (с ментолом и эфирными маслами). После растирания укрыться и полежать.
  • With temperature increase come to the aid of abundant drinking infusions of cranberry (mors), raspberry, decoction of a coltsfoot, rubbing with a solution of vinegar. From drugs can only paracetamol (not often).

Important: there is an individual intolerance to honey and herbs, so be careful. At the first sign of allergy, stop taking them.

UFO - electromagnetic waves that are in the range between violet and x-rays. In medicine, depending on the disease, waves of different effects are used. Each type of wave is used to treat various diseases. UFO used in tanning beds.

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation

Among the various methods of treatment there are those that are associated with medication. Blood UV is a procedure aimed at improving the overall health of a person. This method of therapy has not been studied enough, so it is considered new, but its positive effect on many body functions has already been proven.

Ultraviolet blood irradiation has earned popularity due to its effectiveness. The therapeutic effect of such manipulations lasts for a long period, which is also important.

How useful UFO

Indications and contraindications to the use of this technique should be taken into account by physicians in each particular case. The procedure can not only bring tangible benefits to the human body, but also cause harm.

  1. The level of acids and alkalis in the body is normalized.
  2. There is an increase in hemoglobin in the blood.
  3. The activity of leukocytes is activated.
  4. There is a detrimental effect on viruses and pathogenic bacteria.
  5. UFO helps to improve the work of red blood cells.
  6. There is an increase in immune protection.
  7. There is a decrease in the manifestation of allergies.
  8. There is a resorption effect on blood clots.
  9. Balanced acid metabolism at the cellular level.
  10. Blood is diluted.
  11. The activity of any inflammatory processes decreases.
  12. Swelling is reduced.
  13. UFO promotes cell membrane renewal.

Statistics show that this method of influencing the human body can significantly improve many processes in it, although it is not well understood. In addition, when comparing the results of treatment with drugs and the UVA method of blood, it becomes clear that ultraviolet irradiation is much more effective, moreover, it does not have such a large number of side effects.

In case of a disease of any etiology, it is possible to improve the condition of the patient using this method of treatment. By improving metabolic processes, strengthening the immune defense and adjusting many more functions of the body, any ailment can be cured much faster.

Therefore, drug treatment can be carried out simultaneously with the UV blood, it will accelerate the onset of therapeutic effect.

When this method is needed

Due to the fact that the technique affects the blood, it can be used in almost any disease. In addition, ultraviolet radiation of the blood is made as a prophylactic treatment, if the patient suffers from chronic diseases, has a predisposition to any disease.

What diseases are prescribed for:

  • urological diseases (urethritis, cystitis, prostatitis),
  • gynecological pathologies (vaginitis, endometritis, colpitis) and others,
  • in proctology (perianal fissures, paraproctitis) and others,
  • diseases of the upper respiratory tract (tonsillitis, adnexitis, sinusitis) and others,
  • diseases of the cardiovascular system (as prevention of heart attack and stroke),
  • in case of poisoning of various etiology (alcohol, drugs),
  • diseases of the digestive tract,
  • diseases of the respiratory system
  • skin problems.

Often, UBI of blood is used to improve a person's condition in sepsis, despite the severe course of this pathology, the effectiveness of ultrasound irradiation of blood is palpable.

Also in the indications for use includes a disease such as diabetes. Stimulation of the blood during this procedure improves the activity of the endocrine glands, which is necessary for diabetics.

Often, the use of such methods is assigned to patients with impaired potency and menstrual disorder. Despite the fact that the cause of these ailments lies in the hormonal failure, this method of treatment gives tangible positive results.

Many do not know about the existence of such a method of therapy or do not understand why they are doing this procedure. Only a doctor can provide all the necessary information about this, based on the health of a particular patient.

How is the procedure

For a session of the UV blood test, special equipment is needed. The specialist uses a device that performs ultraviolet blood irradiation, which is a multiwave irradiator acting in all light spectra.

  • During the therapy session, the patient enters the sterile room, lies down on the couch, the doctor takes his blood from a vein and adds a medicine called “Hepatrine” to it. This medicine is necessary to prevent blood from clotting.
  • Through a special tube, blood enters the vessel called the “cuvette”, which is located in the irradiator unit itself.
  • After a certain exposure, the blood flow returns to the patient’s vein.
  • The time of the session is usually 1 hour. The course of such treatment should consist of 7-8 procedures.

Many, not knowing how to do UBI blood, are afraid to go for such a therapeutic session, but these manipulations are painless, almost no discomfort.

To whom such treatment is contraindicated.

Despite its beneficial effects on the human body, ultraviolet radiation can be dangerous. Only the doctor decides whether to assign this treatment method, taking into account all the peculiarities of the patient's health.

The technique has contraindications that, if ignored, can damage the body.

Since this technique has not been fully studied, physicians fear that under certain circumstances, UVR of the blood can provoke a negative reaction of the body, especially for serious human diseases. Since it remains unknown how the body will react to such treatment in case of serious illnesses, it is better to refuse to use this therapy.

Under what conditions is the application prohibited:

  1. Tumor formations of a malignant and benign course.
  2. AIDS.
  3. Tuberculosis in the active stage.
  4. Syphilis.
  5. Problems with blood clotting (hemophilia).
  6. Mental nature disorders.
  7. Epileptic seizures.
  8. Chronic bleeding.
  9. Hemorrhagic, ischemic stroke.
  10. There are medications that cause sensitivity to ultraviolet rays, which also serves as a contraindication to the use of this therapeutic method.

Due to the ambiguity of the effects of the UBI method under such circumstances, this method of treatment is not used.

Sometimes there are people who have an individual intolerance to this kind of effects on the body, they also belong to the group of patients with a contraindication to the UFV of blood.

Is it possible to pass the blood ultraviolet radiation to pregnant women?

In gynecology, blood ultraviolet irradiation is most often used. Sometimes medication treatment is ineffective, so doctors prescribe ultraviolet radiation. Diseases such as uterine fibroids, genital endometriosis, infertility, menopausal disorders, and many others are indications for the administration of this method of therapy.

The period of carrying a child can also be complicated by illnesses. Often there are problems associated with late toxicosis, when a woman feels very bad. In addition, placental insufficiency threatens the life and health of the fetus, which is also considered a complication of this period.

In such cases, women are prescribed treatment by ultraviolet irradiation. Among other things, such procedures are actively used if complications arise after childbirth.

Pregnancy is not a contraindication for the appointment of UBI blood, provided that the procedure will be done by a professional. Today, such therapy is often prescribed to women in a position to improve their condition, well-being, as well as to prevent the pathology of fetal development and the threat of miscarriage.

Complications and consequences

Any treatment can not only help but also harm. Side effects from ultrasound irradiation of blood are extremely rare, however they exist. Often the complications of this method of treatment are reactions of an allergic nature, appearing on the background of taking certain medications.

What drugs can not be taken with UBI blood:

  1. Phenothiazines.
  2. Tetracyclines.
  3. Sulfonamides
  4. Fluoroquinolones.

These agents are photosensitizers, therefore simultaneous treatment with these drugs and ultrasound irradiation is impossible.

Occasionally, an overdose of ultraviolet radiation occurs, to which the body can react by depressing the excretory function of the adrenal glands, as well as by depressing the activity of the spinal cord.

Such a medical procedure should be carried out only in a medical institution and only by an expert in this field, then the risk of any adverse events can be reduced to zero.

Today, UFOs are becoming increasingly popular, people are looking for safe ways of treatment, so as not to harm the body. Such procedures may well be considered as such if they are carried out correctly. Importantly, ultraviolet blood irradiation can be performed on children without fear for their health.

What is it - UBI blood, as described above. Accurate scientific data on the benefits of this method of therapy is enough to actively use it. These procedures will get rid of many ailments, including those that have arisen during pregnancy, but one should not fully rely on ultrasound irradiation, this is not a panacea.

In any case, before the treatment, the doctor examines the patient and prescribe a complex of drugs, and blood ultraviolet irradiation may be an additional method of therapy.

Sunbathing during pregnancy should be properly, as the neglect of the main recommendations is fraught with the development of a burn, as well as a negative effect on the fetus.

Is it possible to do ufo during pregnancy

How simple it all was before!

Could not, managed to jump the temperature - will save antibiotics. But now the two of you, the little life that has arisen in you, makes you wonder how to cure a common cold during pregnancy and how to prevent it.

And they are put off to the side of the pill, and the collection of popular recipes becomes a reference book.

That's just not always help advice grandmothers. What to do?

Of course, the best thing is not to get sick. When everyone is sneezing and coughing around, you should try to visit public places much less often.

Do not deny yourself a walk (the baby needs fresh air), but choose for them quiet, uncrowded corners of the park.

Just dress according to the weather, do not wrap up, so as not to sweat and not increase the likelihood of prodding.

Pregnancy is not the best time for tempering the body.

If the colds are sick home, protect yourself from viruses with a gauze bandage. And, although it is forbidden to make vaccines against pregnancy for pregnant women, it is possible to arrange for the prevention of colds during pregnancy with garlic and onions.

These antimicrobial agents can not only eat, but also spread out around the room, pre-cut into slices. Ventilate the apartment regularly.

Drink a course of vitamins recommended for pregnant women.

Aromatherapy with the use of fir, eucalyptus and rosemary oils will also help. These plants, as well as lemon, lavender and mint, increase immunity, which in a pregnant woman is slightly reduced.

In this case, if not treated, you can make a lot of trouble for yourself - perhaps premature rupture of the amniotic fluid, increased blood loss during childbirth, the development of inflammatory diseases of the internal genital organs, complications in the postpartum period - and for an unborn baby being infected already in the mother's body, he may even die or be born with various malformations, chronic infections.

Therefore, you should carefully listen to your body.

If you are worried about a runny nose and cough during pregnancy, and your throat began to wheeze, then it looks like you have ARVI (acute respiratory viral infection).

The disease can occur without high fever. Within 3-5 days, it may clearly not manifest itself, but at the same time you will be contagious to others.

Ill to be about a week, of course, if you follow all the recommendations of the doctor and avoid complications.

Chills for 3 days, headache, weakness, weakness, pain in the muscles and eyes, nasal congestion, sore throat, dry cough during pregnancy, sometimes accompanied by nausea and vomiting, indicate that you could not avoid the flu.

This is a more dangerous disease, as the influenza virus lowers the immune system, against the background of which chronic diseases can be exacerbated.

Penetrating through the respiratory tract, it affects the mucous membrane, increases the permeability of the walls of blood vessels.

When flu is common intestinal disorders. What is especially dangerous, in about 10% of cases pneumonia can be a complication of the flu during pregnancy.

Experts especially fear the toxic form of this disease in pregnant women, which occurs in% of patients.

The body of a pregnant woman is especially susceptible not only to various viruses, but also to the perception of any drugs.

To their use in the waiting period of the baby should be approached very responsibly!

Vladimir Igorevich Gushchin, Candidate of Medical Sciences. Science, obstetrician-gynecologist of the “Medical Women's Center Emily”: “Ordinary ARD with rhinitis, as a rule, does not threaten the health of the unborn child.

But this does not mean that it does not need to be treated. Obstruction of nasal breathing causes suffering to the pregnant woman herself, and frequent coughing during pregnancy can provoke the threat of termination of pregnancy. The disease itself is not so terrible as its complications.

But viral infections during pregnancy

- SARS, flu and herpes with cytomegalovirus, which are also transmitted by airborne droplets - can cause fetal abnormalities up to missed abortion and malformations.

It all depends on the time limit. A cold during pregnancy is dangerous in the early stages (first trimester). Viral infections are especially dangerous up to 16 weeks of pregnancy, when the formation of internal organs and placenta occurs.

When the fetus is infected at this point, the central nervous system is the first to suffer, developmental defects of the brain and internal organs are possible.

It is important to consider that it is dangerous not to cure the disease at all, or to self-medicate! ”

Kamil Rafaelevich Bakhtiyarov, head. The gynecological department of the “Family” clinic: “Immunity decreases during pregnancy, the probability of exacerbation of chronic diseases is high with any, even the easiest, cold. Therefore, treatment is necessary. ”

The first group includes those that are categorically contraindicated, as they can cause a sudden termination of pregnancy or various fetal deformities.

For example, tegracycline antibiotics, such as doxycycline.

Preparations of the second group are undesirable, but are necessary by medical indications.

Suppose Corinfar is a drug to reduce pressure. Such drugs are recommended with extreme caution.

There are also quite “safe” drugs during pregnancy that can alleviate a particular disease: we are talking about a number of hormonal drugs, drugs, penicillin drugs, etc.

It is necessary to consult a doctor about receiving any funds. ”

To treat colds during pregnancy? The main thing is to understand that it is possible, and even necessary, to treat a cold during pregnancy, but at the same time it is possible to learn what to do during treatment and what is strictly forbidden.

We'll have to remember the recipes of grandmothers: beat the body with water with a weak solution of vinegar instead of antipyretic, wipe the nasal sinuses with bags of heated salt or sand, or put an egg, get rid of a cold in pregnancy with salt solution, and rinse the throat with herbs and furatsilin .

The rest will be prompted by the doctor. He will choose an optimal and harmless therapy.

More often drink something warm: green tea or tea with milk, broth hips. But at the same time monitor the amount of drunk and selected fluid.

Gargle with sage, a solution of baking soda (it can also be instilled into the nose). Also effective in rinsing with sea salt, with infusion of oak bark, chamomile, calendula.

Take medicine with snow root, thermopsis.

Make an infusion of rose hips and viburnum or lemon balm and sage, mixed in equal proportions. Before use, it is desirable to add to the broth drops of sea buckthorn oil.

And between meals, dissolve one teaspoon of honey.

3–5 drops of menthol oil in the nose in each nostril, breathing in and out. Also lubricate the forehead, temples, skin behind the ears and nose with this oil.

DURING PREGNANCY DO NOT:

Принимать лекарственные препараты без разрешения врача, в том числе капли в нос.

Делать ножные ванны, парить ноги.

Сильные прогревания вообще лучше проводить только с одобрения лечащего врача!

O6 UHF and physiotherapy procedures during pregnancy are recommended to be forgotten (you can do a nose and throat UFO, inhalation of drugs in consultation with the obstetrician-gynecologist).

Conduct active fortification. Not all vitamins will be useful to you now.

Physiotherapy while carrying a child: for, against and precautions

The use of various types of physiotherapy in the complex treatment significantly speeds up the healing process. Exposure to physical factors is applied in all areas of medicine.

Contraindications to them are limited, and simplicity and ease of use (some portable devices designed specifically for home treatment) ensure their widespread distribution.

But is physiotherapy permitted during pregnancy? What impact will not harm the baby and help mom cope with the disease?

When may need physiotherapy for the expectant mother

Exposure to physical methods is useful for pregnant women not only for obstetric pathology, but also during periods of exacerbation of somatic diseases, as well as for colds and some infectious processes. Physical therapy during pregnancy at an early period will help preserve the developing fetus, and at a later date, on the contrary, prepare the body for childbirth.

Session indications:

  • threatening spontaneous miscarriage or premature labor,
  • toxicosis of the first half of pregnancy,
  • preparation for labor activity for the period of 40 - 42 weeks,
  • acute inflammatory diseases of the upper respiratory tract,
  • gestosis during pregnancy
  • intrauterine growth retardation,
  • if the pelvic bones diverge - symphysiopathy,
  • to accelerate the healing of postoperative wounds - after cesarean section and perineal injuries,
  • to stimulate uterine contraction in its subinvolution after childbirth,
  • to enhance the repair of nipple cracks, as well as for the prevention and treatment of lactostasis,
  • to stimulate intestinal motility during cuts, especially in the postoperative period,
  • in the complex treatment of endometritis - inflammation of the uterus.

Procedures that do no harm

When carrying a child to each procedure must be approached with caution. After all, not everyone will bring the proper effect, but it is quite capable of harming a young mommy. By negligence, you can even lose the baby.

Before you begin to intensively apply the techniques, you should consult with your doctor.

Electric shock

As a rule, for women in the “interesting” position, the influence of direct electric current is used. With this method of physiotherapy, it is possible to increase the flow of drugs into the tissues, and the therapeutic dosage will be significantly lower than that which would have been prescribed for another method of administering the drug into the body.

Electrophoresis during early pregnancy is prescribed quite frequently, as well as with the threat of premature birth after 21 weeks of gestation. In such situations, magnesia is used as a therapeutic solution.

In minimal concentrations, magnesium ions under the influence of electric current penetrate into the tissue, removing the tone of the smooth muscles of the uterus. This is an absolutely harmless procedure for the baby.

Calcium electrophoresis is used to prepare a woman’s body for childbirth at the end of the third semester.

In case of severe toxicosis during pregnancy, endonasal electrophoresis and galvanization are used. Galvanization is a method of physiotherapy, in which an electric current of small force is passed through special electrodes on the human body. At the time of the procedure, the woman feels only mild warmth and tingling at the sites of application.

If the cause of toxicosis lies in an unstable psychoemotional state, acupuncture and other types of acupuncture have proven to be effective. These methods are also successfully used in case of threatened abortion.

Electrosleep - the impact of pulsed currents on the cerebral cortex. Physiotherapy is used in complex treatment of preeclampsia in the third trimester, when there is an increase in pressure, edema, and changes in clinical blood and urine tests.

Barotherapy

This method involves exposure to the body of high or low atmospheric pressure.

In obstetric practice, hypobaric oxygenation is used in situations when the baby is in utero in growth.

Barotherapy helps to improve blood circulation, even the development of new small vessels - capillaries, including in the placenta. A full course requires at least 10 sessions.

Massage during pregnancy

The main effect of the procedure is muscle and ligament relaxation. This is true for pregnant women, because an enlarged abdomen loads the lower back, and even minor swelling in the legs and arms can cause discomfort, paresthesias - “running out the goosebumps”.

Many women wonder if massage is possible during pregnancy. Allowed to use both hardware and manual, but in certain areas of the body - on the legs, hands, head and neck. A back massage, especially in the second and third trimesters, will have to be abandoned.

To anti-cellulite should be approached with extreme caution.

Physiotherapy for other diseases during pregnancy

In the complex treatment of rhinitis and sinusitis, ultraviolet radiation, UHF-therapy, and laser radiation are used. The latter can be applied by a woman at home.

If a pregnant woman suffers from bronchial asthma or chronic bronchitis, phonophoresis and electrophoresis for certain segments of the chest can be used at the time of exacerbation of diseases, as well as inhalations with therapeutic solutions.

Impacts that should be approached with caution

Any procedures, even at first glance absolutely safe for mother and baby, should be carried out only after an examination by a gynecologist, who will specifically exclude the harmful effects of each woman in a given clinical situation. Harmless to some procedures can provoke undesirable consequences for others.

The use of physiotherapy such as mud therapy and hydrotherapy should also be limited, especially in the second and third trimesters. Up to 12 weeks it is worthwhile to approach their use, having assessed all possible risks.

We recommend reading an article about sports in early pregnancy. From it you will learn about the possibility of physical exertion, what kind of loads and complexes to choose a pregnant woman, the benefits of fitness, swimming, gymnastics and dancing.

Cryotherapy

It is not recommended to expose the body of pregnant women to extremely low temperatures.

The physiotherapeutic effect in the complex treatment of diseases and conditions gives a tangible result. Many of the procedures are permitted during pregnancy and after childbirth, reducing recovery time. But the use of any method during childbirth should be carried out only on the prescription of a physician, who will assess its necessity and safety in each specific situation.

Physiotherapy methods of treatment during pregnancy

Physical therapy exists for a long time. Even 20 years ago, physiotherapy during pregnancy was prohibited. In hospitals, the devices were purchased a long time ago, which prevented pregnant patients from carrying out the procedure. For such old devices there was a very large number of contraindications.

Today, pregnancy and physiotherapy are quite compatible. There is a huge selection of modern devices for physiotherapy, which are used to treat various gynecological and obstetric pathologies.

They are as safe as possible because they do not have a negative effect on the pregnant woman’s body, unlike previous older models.

Indications, limitations to physiotherapy during gestation

Pregnant women have a large number of diseases that interfere with the normal bearing of the fetus. A threatening condition is considered a strong uterus tone. With this pathology, the smooth muscles of an organ spasm, the vessels of the placenta and the uterus itself narrow. The blood supply to the fetus slows down dramatically, which causes intrauterine hypoxia (oxygen deprivation).

The lack of oxygen and nutrients affects the development of the baby. The child slows down in growth, and foci of hypoxic brain damage appear. The defeat of the brain tissue may further lead to a decrease in cognitive functions, hyperactivity syndrome, and speech delay.

The second serious pathology in pregnant women is preeclampsia. When preeclampsia increases blood pressure (BP) - a high BP is recorded on both hands, but with a difference of 30 or more units. In addition to high pressure, symptoms of renal dysfunction (protein in the urine, edema) appear.

Severe forms of preeclampsia provoke placental insufficiency (FPN). Blood flow rate in the placenta is impaired. This leads to the development of hypoxia in the fetus. Gestosis can cause premature labor in the early stages.

Female patients often suffer from first trimester toxicosis. The woman has vomiting in the morning after eating, nausea for sharp odors. Constant vomiting can lead to severe dehydration, a decrease in the amount of amniotic fluid, and delayed fetal development due to a lack of trace elements.

In addition to these pathologies, the incidence of gestational diabetes during gestation has become higher than in previous years. It is believed that this is due to the frequent use of in vitro fertilization. Gestational diabetes can develop into diabetes mellitus after childbirth.

Is it possible to do physiotherapy during pregnancy? Today, physical procedures are used to prevent the symptoms of these diseases. They can be carried out in the hospital, gynecological hospitals, clinics, sanatoriums. Patients are allowed to do electrophoresis, inhalation, phototherapy, mud therapy, and microwave according to indications.

Indications for physiotherapy during gestation and after delivery:

  • Strong uterus tone.
  • Toxicosis.
  • The threat of preterm birth.
  • Preparatory stage for delivery.
  • The introduction of drugs in case of inability to receive them parenterally or enterally.
  • Increased suture regeneration after cesarean section, resorption of postoperative adhesions.

Physiotherapy is not indicated for: bleeding from the genital tract, oncopathology, genital tuberculosis, exacerbation of infectious diseases, insufficiency of the kidneys and liver, genital warts, psychiatric problems.

Types of procedures allowed during gestation

Physical therapy during pregnancy can include phototherapy, electrophoresis, inhalation therapy, mud therapy.

Before carrying out any physiotherapy, it is necessary to consult a physiotherapist and the attending physician.

Inhalation therapy is considered to be an excellent physiotherapeutic method used during pregnancy. It helps a lot when you cough.

When using acceptable drugs, this technique is considered very effective and safe.

Inhalation is carried out with a saline solution, Miramistin, medicinal herbs (sage, chamomile). Other medications are used only as indicated.

For the procedure using steam inhalers or nebulizers. The latter allow you to spray the medicine on small particles that easily fall into the larynx, trachea, bronchi. With pneumonia, nebulizers with the smallest atomization of the substance are perfect.

Inhalation therapy is allowed at any time if the solution used during pregnancy is used.

During the inhalation, the patient must breathe evenly. Inhale the vapors through the mouth, exhale through the nose. One session lasts 10 minutes. Course therapy is 10 procedures.

Miramistin is safe during pregnancy. To prepare a therapeutic solution for inhalation, dilute it in saline. It is necessary to take 1 part of Miramistin and 2 parts of saline.

With a cold, a woman develops a runny nose, sinusitis (sinusitis, frontal sinusitis). With these pathologies, the attending physician may prescribe UHF. Condenser plates are installed on the region of the maxillary sinuses on both sides. This type of therapy is used only after 12 months of pregnancy.

With pharyngitis, rhinitis, sinusitis is also shown electrophoresis. Intranasal electrophoresis can be used in pregnant women only after 8 weeks, as this method of physiotherapy during early pregnancy can harm the baby. Electrodes are installed in the nasal passages. The procedure lasts 10-15 minutes. Course therapy is 10 sessions.

Physical therapy for pregnant women is indicated for gestational diabetes. In diabetes, electrophoresis from 8 weeks of gestation is used to improve kidney function and enhance blood flow in the uterus. In addition to physiotherapy, the patient is shown to control blood sugar, routine examination of the fundus. If necessary, women are recommended drugs for the correction of glucose levels.

With a strong uterus tone, pregnant women are also shown electrophoresis. During the procedure, the muscles of the uterus under the influence of current relax, which has a positive effect on the course of pregnancy. The duration of the session is 10-15 minutes. The course of treatment is 10 days.

Ultrasound therapy in early and late gestation of the fetus does not apply. SMT (therapy with sinusoidal currents) is prohibited at any time.

Ultraviolet radiation (phototherapy) can be used in pregnant patients. In rhinitis and sinusitis, a special intranasal nozzle is used to irradiate the nasal passages. Under the influence of ultraviolet irradiation, mucous membranes are dried, nasal congestion is removed, local heat is produced.

When pain in the throat is also used UFO, but on the back wall of the pharynx. The patient quickly edema, pain syndrome. The number of sessions is 10-15 times. One treatment lasts 15 minutes.

In addition to these techniques, you can use a light massage to enhance blood flow in the tissues and the uterus. Mud therapy is also considered safe for pregnant women by the method of physiotherapy.

Physiotherapy is also relevant in the postpartum period, especially after a cesarean section. It uses ultrasound therapy, magnetic therapy, electrophoresis to accelerate the healing of sutures and the prevention of postoperative adhesions. This avoids complications after surgery.

Physiotherapy for pregnant women is indicated for colds, threatened miscarriage, and increased uterus tone. Physiotherapy techniques should not be used independently, as some of them are limited or prohibited during pregnancy. Before treatment, consult your doctor.

Kouf nose and throat therapy

Kouf nose and throat therapy

Physiotherapy methods have been and remain in demand in the treatment of many diseases.

KUF therapy is one of the methods of physiotherapy that destroys toxins and viruses. It is widely used in the prevention of viral and catarrhal diseases.

Ultraviolet short waves have a beneficial effect on the work of the whole organism. Their impact is aimed at the destruction of protein molecules and the formation of bioradicals.

This is a very effective method, for the death of pathogens only a few minutes of irradiation of the pharynx and nasopharynx is sufficient.

In addition, blood circulation is restored on the irradiated area, which allows intensively restoring lost functions.

In order to evaluate all the advantages and disadvantages of the method, consider what it is KUF physiotherapy.

Mechanism of action

KUF was originally invented to treat skin diseases of fungal or bacterial etiology, as well as ulcers.

However, over time, the therapy began to be applied more widely, since the spectrum of UV action is quite large.

Shortwave ultraviolet rays have a bactericidal, mycocidal and antiviral effect.

Initially, they are absorbed by DNA molecules, then nucleic acids and proteins.

The ability of cell DNA regeneration is lost, and as a result, the pathogens die. And also under the influence of UV rays transcription is disturbed.

At the very beginning of the process, shortwave rays cause capillary spasm. Subcapillary veins expand.

After a couple of hours after the procedure, a reddish erythema appears on the irradiated part of the body, which disappears in 2–3 days.

Penetration of rays into the skin does not exceed 1 mm. Thermal effects on the body KUF therapy does not have.

Shortwave radiation in the nose

The patient assumes a sitting position and slightly tilts the head back. Then, an emitter is alternately inserted into each nostril.

To do this, use special nozzles that do not cause discomfort during the procedure.

The patient is still in the same position. In the case of a throat, a mirror is used for irradiation, which reflects the rays on both its sides.

At the same time, the tongue protrudes, which is not too pleasant for the patient, however, the procedure takes several minutes.

During the acute process, 1 biodoze is initially prescribed, gradually increasing to 3. The procedure can last from 15 to 30 minutes, it all depends on the degree and severity of the pathology. Через месяц, если существует такая необходимость, курс лечения можно провести ещё раз.

Показания к проведению КУФ терапии

КУФ терапия имеет широкий спектр применения. Поскольку метод оказывает противовоспалительный, противовирусный и бактерицидный эффект, его используют не только в отоларингологии, но и в других медицинских отраслях.

There are many indications for the procedure, the main ones are:

  • herpes, trophic ulcers,
  • acute inflammatory processes in the inner ear,
  • wounds with the risk of anaerobic infection,
  • angina,
  • weakened immunity, the inability of the body to resist infections and viruses,
  • acute nasopharyngeal inflammation,
  • skin diseases
  • bronchitis,
  • sinusitis and adenoids.

Review of the device for KUF therapy Sun OUFK-1

Ultraviolet irradiator OUFK-1 The sun is used for therapeutic exposure of patients. This can occur both for therapeutic and prophylactic purposes.

The power consumed by the device from the network does not exceed 30 watts.

The device for KUF of therapy OUFK-1 Sun

OUFK-1 is very easy to use and can work in a cyclic mode for 8 hours a day.

Use of the device is shown for:

  1. body resistance to various types of viruses and infections,
  2. prevention and treatment of rickets in children,
  3. eliminate inflammation in the organs,
  4. improve immunity with sluggish chronic diseases,
  5. compensate for the lack of ultraviolet rays (shown to patients whose work involves the absence of sunlight),
  6. treatment of atopic dermatitis, furunculosis, psoriasis and other skin diseases.

And also the device KUF Sun is used for such diseases:

  • inflammation of the genital organs in women (acute and chronic),
  • trophic ulcers, bedsores, non-healing wounds, boils,
  • shingles,
  • neurology and neuropathy.

Contraindications to the use of KUF therapy

KUF therapy is contraindicated in the presence of such disorders:

  1. hepatopathy, nephropathy,
  2. gastric and duodenal ulcer,
  3. acute myocardial infarction,
  4. mental disorders
  5. hypocoagulative syndrome.
  6. increased response of the mucous membranes and epidermis to UV exposure,
  7. malignant tumors,
  8. circulatory disorders of the brain,
  9. pronounced atherosclerosis,
  10. systemic disorders in connective tissues
  11. chronic hepatitis, cachexia,
  12. diseases of the kidneys and liver associated with the lack of their functioning,
  13. cachexia.

KUV therapy with fever and fever is also contraindicated. In addition, there are people who absolutely do not tolerate exposure to ultraviolet rays.

If during the procedure the patient feels symptoms such as weakness or dizziness, you should immediately tell the doctor and stop the procedure.

Ufo during pregnancy, harm to ultraviolet radiation during pregnancy

UFO during pregnancy

The source of ultraviolet irradiation may be as the sun's rays, and lamps in the solarium or lamps of other devices that are used in physiotherapy. The safe use of UFOs is considered the period at the end of 32 weeks of pregnancy, when the third trimester begins, when the laying of the organs and systems of the fetus has already been completed.

Ultraviolet will positively affect both the mother and the child.

So, what is the beneficial effect of ultraviolet for a pregnant woman:

  • immunity increases, and this is the most important thing that a woman should have during pregnancy,
  • improves mood
  • metabolism improves, a pleasant sensation of heat appears
  • the work of the endocrine glands is activated,
  • hemoglobin level increases,
  • leaves depression and bad mood.

How and what can cure a cold during pregnancy?

Pregnant women often face such an unpleasant phenomenon as a cold.

Discharge from the nose prevent night sleep, do not allow to concentrate during the day.

In addition, every expectant mother has anxiety about the effect of a cold on the health of the future baby.

Why it happens?

The causes of rhinitis may be several.

  • Rhinitis caused by viruses or pathogenic bacteria.

It can manifest itself against the background of a general decrease in immunity. The traditional “untreated runny nose runs out in 7 days” is no good here, there is a threat of infection of the amniotic fluid and it is dangerous for the child. Especially dangerous is untreated rhinitis in the first trimester.

The placenta is designed to protect the baby from such problems, but no one can give a 100% guarantee, the mother’s health and the body’s individual response to viruses plays a big role.

The situation becomes critical if an increased body temperature is also added to the manifestations of a head cold.

  • Allergy (hay fever, pollinosis).

If pregnancy occurs in the spring and the beginning of summer (the period of active flowering of many plants), then allergic reactions can be the likely cause of the common cold. And even if you previously did not suffer from allergies, a change in autoimmune reactions during pregnancy can cause similar phenomena.

Allergies can also occur on pets, laundry detergents or household dust.

It can be caused by changes in the activity of the cardiovascular system. During pregnancy, the blood flow changes, the volume of circulating blood increases, the tone of the vascular wall decreases - all this can cause excessive secretion of mucus in the nose.

One of the characteristic signs of such a runny nose is its appearance when the head position changes.

For example, when you wake up and toss in a bed or bow your head over a table while you work. The "heavy" vessels difficult to quickly restructure, and the reaction is getting rid of excess mucus. Therefore, such a runny nose is called "vasomotor" or "neurovegetative".

The main methods of treatment of rhinitis during pregnancy

To accurately determine the nature of rhinitis and choose the right treatment, it is recommended to consult a doctor.

This may be a combination of several factors: for example, a bacterial infection may join a vascular rhinitis, or an allergic reaction may appear stronger than usual due to vasomotor rhinitis.

Antiviral drugs

These drugs can be applied topically, in the form of ointments or in drops. So the medicinal substance gets exactly as prescribed, and, therefore, it is possible to do with small doses that are not dangerous for the fetus. Among these drugs can be:

In order to get rid of the virus faster, general measures will help: tea with raspberries, lemon, honey. A large amount of fluid is not recommended for pregnant women, but a glass of warm drink (200-230 ml) every one and a half hours during the acute period of the disease will help to cure a cold faster faster.

Vasoconstrictor drops

Vasoconstrictive drops from the common cold, such as "Nazivin", "Naphthyzinum", "Tizin", "Xylene", "Sanorin", "Vibrocil", "Otrivin" and others, help with all types of rhinitis and are known for their quick effect. But they are not always recommended for pregnant women.

The fact is that they help quickly, but not for long. And the use of these solutions many times during the day leads to the fact that not only the nasopharyngeal vessels are narrowed, but the placental blood flow can be disturbed, and this is already dangerous for the child.

However, vasoconstrictor drugs can be used 1-2 times a day in emergency situations, when nasal discharge tires the future mom too much.

It is advisable to use vasoconstrictive drops in pregnant women in a lower dosage, that is, to buy the same drugs intended for children of preschool or infancy age.

Cold sprays

Another universal remedy for the common cold, which alleviates the condition for any manifestations of the common cold, is salt solutions.

In the pharmacy you can buy solutions based on sea water:

Due to the salt component, they facilitate the separation of secretions and allow you to quickly clean the nasopharynx, while also moisturizing the mucous membranes.

But the effect of salt solutions is short-lived. However, unlike vasoconstrictor solutions, saline can be used several times during the day.

When purchasing a drug in a pharmacy, pay attention to its composition! Only those are harmless to pregnant women where, apart from sea water, there are no other components.

For example, in the complex snoop spray, both sea water and vasoconstrictor xylometazoline are contained, and, therefore, it should be used with pregnancy with caution!

Treatment for allergic rhinitis should begin with the determination of the allergen and, if possible, minimize its impact (limit walks during the flowering period, use a hypoallergenic laundry detergent, someone from the family can take care of your pet for this time).

Antihistamines are also indicated during this period, the doctor will help you find safe ones, especially if you have had allergies before.

You must trust the doctor who is leading the pregnancy and remember that prescribing medications always takes into account the risks to the baby.

Medicines are prescribed for pregnant women only in those cases where the lack of treatment can damage the little man more than taking the pill.

Chronic runny nose is dangerous due to the fact that it can cause fetal hypoxia. A restless (due to nasal congestion) night's sleep can cause hypertension, which also affects the blood circulation and development of the child.

Popular methods of dealing with the common cold

Home plants such as aloe (agave) or Kalanchoe pinnate may come to the rescue.

To avoid mucosal burns, bury aloe juice (or kalanchoe) diluted in half with water, or make homemade honey-based drops with their juice (if there is no allergy to honey!).

Traditional medicine recommends for washing the nose decoctions of sorrel, chamomile or green spruce cones.

These decoctions are weak antiseptics, besides help to moisturize the mucous. You can enhance the effect of decoctions by adding a little sea or ordinary table salt (a quarter of a teaspoon per glass of broth).

As a result, you get a comprehensive home remedy that combines the action of salt solutions and antiseptics.

A good effect, noticeable even in chronic rhinitis, is instilled in boiled beet juice or carrot juice diluted with water.

In addition to the direct impact on the mucous membrane, there are other ways to alleviate the condition of a pregnant woman with a cold.

Permanent rhinitis can be cured with inhalation. Inhalation can be carried out on hot steam or use a nebulizer. For inhalation using potato broth, mineral water, physical solution of bio-oil.

It is not always convenient to hold inhalations, it may be uncomfortable for pregnant women to sit for a long time in a certain position above the inhaler, and hot steam inhalations are generally held for a strictly limited time.

It is much easier and more pleasant to add a few drops of eucalyptus, orange or cedar oil to the air humidifier.

In this way, you disinfect the air in the room and save the respiratory organs from drying out. This will be a good prevention of rhinitis for the whole family.

Self-massage

Point self-massage also helps with nasal congestion. Using your fingertips, gently massage the cheekbones and brow arc, massage is carried out from the center to the auricle.

In the process of massage, you can use the essential oils of eucalyptus or aloe. It is also good to rub the wings of the nose with Asterisk balsam. The effect of soft inhalation will be provided.

Home quartz

A tabletop quartz lamp with nozzles-tubes will be a useful acquisition for the home.

Quartz is able to get rid of viruses and bacteria, quickly dries the mucous membrane.

It is important to properly follow the procedure to avoid burns. And when the baby is born, the quartz lamp will serve to disinfect the air in the apartment during periods of seasonal infections, this will preserve the health of the child.

It is important to remember that any indisposition of the mother can affect the development of the fetus and the health of the future baby. Therefore, do not be shy and you need to tell your doctor about all the exciting problems, even such "frivolous" as a cold. The specialist will prompt the means safe for the child and the future mother.

Ufo during early pregnancy

Safe UFO during pregnancy becomes at the end of the 32nd week, when the third trimester begins, and the laying of the main organs and systems has already been completed. Ultraviolet positively affects both the mother and the fetus.

The benefits of ultraviolet radiation

Ultraviolet has the most beneficial effect on the body of a pregnant woman. This is expressed in the following:

- immunity increases, - mood improves, - a pleasant sensation of heat appears, - improves metabolism, - activates the endocrine glands, - increases hemoglobin level, - promotes the synthesis of vitamin D (from cholesterol), - prevents the development of depression, - appearance of beautiful pigmentation on the skin (however, in some cases, chloasma, that is, increased pigmentation inherent in pregnancy) may develop.

Cautions when tanning during pregnancy

When pregnancy is necessary to sunbathe with the mind. What is it expressed in? Sunbathing for pregnant women is recommended only if the following conditions are met:

- the presence of sunglasses, - the use of special creams to protect against UVA and UVB spectrum of ultraviolet exposure, - an account of the corresponding skin phototypes.

Modern cosmetology and dermatology distinguish the following phototypes:

- the first one is the bright eyes, skin and hair of these people.

Instead of sunburn, there is usually a burn, - the second - these people also have light eyes, skin and hair, however they get tan, burns are less common, - the third - people have dark skin, hair and eyes, almost no burn is formed, but even his presence, he quickly turns into a tan, - the fourth - dark-skinned and dark-haired people who tan without getting a burn.

Isolation of phonotypes is important in order to determine the time spent in the sun, as well as the degree of protection of sunscreen. The smaller the phonotype of the skin, the stronger the degree of protection of the cream is required.

Harm of UV during pregnancy

Pregnant women are particularly sensitive to ultraviolet in the first trimester of pregnancy, when fetal organs are just forming.

Therefore, any excessive amount of ultraviolet radiation can cause the development of defects in the fetus. In this regard, it is recommended to eliminate tan at this time.

In small doses, you can start sunbathing from the second trimester. It is about both natural tanning and artificial tanning.

Proper sunbathing during pregnancy. What is it like?

Sunbathing during pregnancy should be properly, as the neglect of the main recommendations is fraught with the development of a burn, as well as a negative effect on the fetus.

Be sure to adhere to the recommended time. So, the best time for tanning is the time before 10 am and after 5 pm. It is not worth to be in the sun for a long time, since there is a high probability of lowering the level of blood pressure and the development of uterine bleeding and abortion.

Sunbathe is best under an umbrella, as this will save the skin from the negative effects of ultraviolet rays. You can not sleep on the beach, as this leads to an uncontrollable long stay in the sun.

Thus, a pregnant woman can sunbathe, but this should be done in moderation.

Can pregnant women sunbathe? Dangerous rays of the sun

Contact with the body of direct rays of the sun contributes to overheating of the internal organs of the future mother, and therefore, the baby. If the body temperature is high, bad changes in the brain of the future child begin to occur.

In addition, due to the effects of ultraviolet radiation, especially in the early gestational age, the occurrence of nervous system defects of an unborn baby is observed.

You can visit the beaches. Just choose for yourself suitable swimsuits for pregnant women, a hat with a wide brim, sunglasses and more stay in the shadow, and not under the open rays of the scorching sun.

Trips to the solarium are also strictly prohibited. For the same reasons.

If we talk about tanning, then from their use also need to try to refrain. After all, the harmful dihydroxyacetone, which is included in the composition of these funds, penetrates the bloodstream through the skin of a woman, reaching the fetus.

Однако если беременной женщине, всё же, приходится находиться на открытом солнце, тогда важно принять меры безопасности. We talked about this in more detail in the article on heat and pregnancy, but here we will nevertheless highlight the main points:

In order not to get overheated, you need to wear natural spacious clothing, drink clean water in large quantities. Spend more time in the shade.

Well apply special cream with high protective properties. In this case, filters that protect against the sun, should be mineral, not chemical.

In general, is it possible to sunbathe a pregnant woman and be in the sun for a long time while carrying a baby, the future mother decides for herself. I just want to warn her against wrong actions. After all, the effects of exposure to sunlight can be sad.
