Recently, a pediatrician consultation video released by the Shenzhen Health Commission has attracted the attention of netizens.
In the video, a mother holds a baby in her arms, saying the baby fell out of bed and hit its skull. After touching the face-to-face consultation, the doctor determined that the child was likely to have intracranial hemorrhage accompanied by a fracture, and then recommended that the parents take the child to take CT for testing, and said that although there was radiation, they had to take it.
In the face of parents' questions, the doctor further explained that this was done because the child was relatively small, the clinical signs of intracranial hemorrhage and fracture were atypical, and the film was taken to detect the child's injury more accurately. But the child's grandmother was still hesitating, asking, "Can't you not shoot?" The doctor categorically said, "It must be filmed."

Finally, the child's parents signaled for the grandmother to listen to the doctor. But until she left, my grandmother kept asking, "Is it okay not to make films?" ”
After the CT is taken, the child does have intracranial hemorrhage and fractures, although the amount of bleeding is not large, but for the sake of caution, the doctor recommends that parents take the child to a neurosurgeon for an overall evaluation. At this time, the grandmother, who was sitting on the side holding the baby, again questioned, "Didn't you say stop (bleeding)?"
Seeing this, the doctor explained again that although the bleeding stopped, it should not be taken lightly, if intracranial hemorrhage, it is difficult for parents to observe with the naked eye, and the child may be in danger in sleep. Then the doctor asked the parents to take the child for an MRI and made it clear that "the MRI has no radiation."
But the child's grandmother ignored it, saying that "the [radiation] of MRI is more obvious", and the doctor had to reiterate that "there is no radiation". The child's grandmother was still dissatisfied, "Why do you want to do MRI?" ”
The doctor had to helplessly remind, "Old man, don't feel that nothing is nothing, in case you don't look good (for the child)..." Fortunately, the child's parents were not affected by the grandmother in the end, but followed the doctor's advice to take the child for scientific treatment.
Netizens are hotly discussed
The above clip sparked heated discussions among netizens. Some netizens said that although grandma is out of concern, she really can't be stubborn and listen to the doctor.
Some fellow doctors expressed deep sympathy, and they were most afraid of encountering family members who were ignorant and did not know that they would not listen to the doctor's advice.
Some netizens shared the "same elders" they met, who died in infancy due to improper medical treatment, which is embarrassing:
@飞飞曼我小的时候, a younger brother and grandma next door fell when they went up the stairs, leaned over and knocked on the back of their heads, didn't care at the time, rubbed and went home, after a while this brother said drowsiness, grandma coaxed him to sleep, as a result, the family felt that something was wrong when he shouted at night, and then it was late to send to the hospital, the back of the head and the skull were crispy, intracranial hemorrhage, and died ... He was only five years old.
If the child falls on the head, should the head CT be filmed? Will it cause radiation damage?
Many parents will ask if it is necessary to do head CT, entangled CT will not cause radiation damage? Radiation damage is certainly there, but there are pros and cons. At this time, it should be emphasized to grasp the main contradiction, since the doctor has suspected that the child has intracranial hemorrhage, then a clear diagnosis and treatment as soon as possible is the first priority, the potential harm caused by CT is incomparable, which is more important than the other, at a glance, parents should respect the doctor's performance of duties according to medical principles.
