Immune diseases and their relationship to the medical file
Relationship of diagnosis of immune diseases to the patient's medical file and in the advisory cooperation between the doctors
Many of us followed the suffering of the famous singer Selena Gomez from lupus and how it led to kidney failure and failure, which led to her need for a new kidney transfer.
Many of us continued to suffer from the disease that affected her career, so she had to cancel her concerts and the impact of her life in general, which led her to be more isolated from the community around her.
So what does alleviating the patient's suffering have to do with cooperative diagnosis among doctors?
There are some diseases to be properly diagnosed that need the expertise of many medical specialties.
Not only that, but the proper prescription needs to be cooperated and constantly communicated between more than one medical specialty, including immune diseases or autoimmune diseases and antigenic diseases.
Autoimmune disease, especially lupus, which is difficult to diagnose because of its multiple symptoms and differences from patient to patient.
Therefore, it needs careful treatment and direct communication between specialist doctors who have sufficient breastfeeding and the ability to communicate with colleagues in other medical specialties without any embarrassment during diagnosis and treatment.
Therefore, cooperation between more than one doctor from different medical specialties in diagnosis may accelerate the proper diagnosis very much because the realistic scenario that occurs with the patient is the following
The patient feels a lot of symptoms that may seem unrelated such as:
- -A rash in the face, doctors call Malar rash, a butterfly-shaped rash that covers the bridge of the nose and spreads beyond the cheeks.
- -A red and scaly rash, called discoid rash, looks like corticosteroid patches on the skin.
- -A sun-related rash, which appears after exposure to sunlight.
- -Wounds in the mouth, not usually painful.
- -Pain and bloating in two or more joints.
- -Swelling of the membranes surrounding the heart and lungs.
- -Kidney disease.
- -Neurological disorder, such as convulsion or psychosis.
- -Low blood count, such as: lack of red blood cells, thrombocytopenia or leukopenia.
In the absence of direct contact with all doctors from all disciplines and because our country lacks the idea of having a medical file of the patient and because the patient himself may not link all these symptoms together, the patient is lost between the medical specialties related to all these symptoms (urinary tracts - internal - bones - skin ....) and all this causes the patient not to direct the correct medical tests from the beginning, which reveal the disease faster and thus cause delays in diagnosis for long periods and also cause the patient to be treated wrongly. For a while. Therefore, the doctor should note with his experience the importance of communicating with colleagues from other specialties of the patient to link the symptoms together and reach a proper diagnosis.
For example, during the course of treatment and the continuity of the patient's proper treatment, the attending physician needs to decide on the need to treat symptoms, and on the types of medications to be prescribed, where there must be a careful assessment of preferences (advantages) versus risks (disadvantages) through consultation with rheumatologist. When symptoms worsen, or subside, both your doctor and patient can decide to replace medications or change the dose
Therefore, we know that the life of a patient "lupus" is not an easy life where he is met by many challenges due to the multiplicity of symptoms and the most difficult, the lack of a final treatment for him, where the patient must live with the disease throughout his life, so doctors try to alleviate the suffering of the journey of diagnosis on the patient and suffer the journey of treatment, so that the doctor diagnoses the disease as soon as possible to preserve the life of the patient and also choose the types of treatment correct for the patient, Therefore, the cooperation of the doctors treating the patient from different disciplines without feeling embarrassed in communicating between them and putting the interest of the patient first helps the patient to face the disease more strongly and without entering into the maze of conflict in diagnosis and treatment between the treating doctors.
If the doctor has to raise the interest of the patient to be the main factor and the engine for him, the doctor also tries as much as possible to provide a medical file for the patient (after diagnosis) to continue the journey of treatment without problems.
Provided to you by the program of management of clinic complexes My Clinic, which supports the property of opening a medical file for the patient to record the patient's medical history and record his medical journey, with ease of reference at any time, also easy access by colleagues from other specialties in the clinic complex (according to the powers of the doctor) therefore it is a mechanism to link doctors in the clinic complex significantly.
