IDEhA: an operating room that puts you to the test
It is important to remember that every patient is different, and your safety instructions may be different from other patients or people you know who have received radiation therapy to treat cancer. Any precautions you should take depend on what treatment is used and the type and dose of radiation given. If necessary, your cancer care team will give you precise instructions so you will know what steps to take and how long the precautions should be followed. You should follow your instructions as directed.
Before you begin radiation therapy, your health care team works carefully to develop an effective treatment plan that is also safe. Treatment will focus on delivering radiation to the cancer while limiting exposure to healthy tissue. Your treatment plan will be reviewed frequently during the time of your therapy, and computers are used to monitor you and the amount of radiation being given.

In addition, he reported that the MTC has committed the airlines to prioritize the transport of these samples by air in order to diagnose the coronavirus quickly. Tests performed by health personnel on those who may be infected are free of charge.
Blood is the body’s transport system, always busy collecting and distributing substances throughout the body. As it circulates through the body, blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to all the tissues that need them. It also collects waste products, such as carbon dioxide, and carries them to the organs responsible for expelling them from the body.
Blood cells are made in the bone marrow, a spongy substance contained inside many of the body’s bones. A mature adult has almost 5 liters (about 10 pints) of blood in the body.
A transfusion is a relatively simple medical procedure used by physicians to replace losses of blood, or any part of the blood, such as red blood cells or platelets. Transfusions are usually administered through an intravenous line, a small tube inserted into a vein with a very fine needle. The entire procedure usually takes approximately two to four hours, depending on the amount of blood needed.
