3d video of Clínica Pardiñas (http://j.mp/cPardinas) on COVID-19 coronavirus and the preventive measures that dental clinics or other health centers can take to prevent its spread.
Many contagious diseases are spread through direct or indirect contact with people. Bacteria and viruses, such as Covid-19 or coronaviruses, can be transmitted carried by microparticles of saliva that we expel when coughing, sneezing, speaking or through the contact of our hands with different surfaces. These pathogenic elements, if a series of precautions are not followed, can access our body through our airways or mucosa, after having touched contaminated surfaces or having been in close contact with an infected person.
It is important to know the patient's medical history, to rule out symptoms that may indicate a possible infection. Covid-19 or coronavirus is a highly contagious virus that affects the respiratory system, producing symptoms such as fever, cough, dyspnea, general malaise and, in the most severe cases, pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome and kidney failure. Once the virus is inside the human body, it deposits its genetic material inside the ribosomes of the host cells. These ribosomes treat the virus's RNA as if it were its own and act as factories creating new viral proteins that facilitate virus replication, thus successively propagating to new host cells.
If the necessary protection measures are not taken, such as the use of masks with the appropriate protection factor, protective glasses, caps and gloves, the health professional has a high risk of contagion, being very close to the patient.
To minimize and avoid potential contagion as much as possible, it is important to follow a series of protocols such as:
1) Instruct the patient to wash their hands with soap and water for at least 1 minute and then apply hydroalcoholic gel.
2) Maintain a separation of at least 1 meter with other patients in the waiting room; avoid physical contact.
3) Rinse for 1 minute with 1% hydrogen peroxide before starting treatment.
4) The health professional must use the appropriate protective equipment; discard the non-sterilizable material after the treatment is finished; sterilize all material susceptible to it and disinfect all surfaces in the clinic.
