Inhalation injury prevention

Inhalation injury prevention

1. Prevent infection

After inhalation injury, the airway and lungs are damaged, ciliary function is destroyed, airway secretions and foreign bodies cannot be discharged in time, local and systemic resistance is reduced, etc., often causing airway and lung infections. Once infected, if the treatment is not timely, acute respiratory failure can be complicated, and it can become an important focus of systemic infection and induce sepsis.

2. Thoroughly remove foreign bodies in the airway and sloughed off necrotic mucosal tissue

Smooth drainage is the basic measure to prevent infection, followed by strict aseptic operation techniques and disinfection and isolation, strict control of wound-lung-wound bacterial cross-infection; regular smear and culture of airway secretions, and selection of sensitive antibiotics. In addition, systemic support therapy should be strengthened to improve the body's immune function, which is of rational significance for the prevention and treatment of infection.
