    Indaba egcwele (KUPHELA sebenzisa inkinobho ethi 'Namathisela EZwini' ukuze ukopishe futhi unamathisele ngokuphephile umbhalo kudokhumenti ye-Word)

    Isilinganiso se- Amacala we-750,000 kubikwa minyaka yonke ukufa kwezingane okubangelwa yinyumoniya. Lezi zinombolo nazo ziyamangaza ngoba le datha ibala kuphela amazwe ase-Afrika eseningizimu ye-Sahara. Inani lokufa liwumphumela wokungabikho kokwelashwa okusheshayo nokwanele, kanye namacala anzima okumelana nama-antibiotic, ngenxa yokwanda kokusetshenziswa kwama-antibiotic ekwelapheni. Futhi, ukuxilonga inyumoniya kwenzeka, njengoba izimpawu zayo ezivamile zifana nesikamalaleveva.

    Isingeniso Ngenyumoniya

    Inyumoniya ibonakala njengesifo samaphaphu. Ngokuvamile kuhlotshaniswa nokukhwehlela, imfiva, nobunzima bokuphefumula. Ingelapheka kalula ekhaya kubantu abaningi. Nokho, ezimweni ezihilela isiguli esesikhulile, usana, noma esiphethwe ezinye izifo, amacala angaba nzima kakhulu. Ezinye izimpawu zihlanganisa amafinyila, isicanucanu, ubuhlungu besifuba, ukuphefumula isikhashana, kanye nesifo sohudo.

    Ukuxilongwa nokwelashwa Kwenyumoniya

    Ukuxilongwa kwenyumoniya ngokuvamile kwenziwa udokotela ngokusebenzisa a ukuhlolwa ngokomzimba. Lapha kuhlolwa izinga lokushaya kwenhliziyo, izinga lomoya-mpilo, nesimo sokuphefumula esijwayelekile sesiguli. Lezi zivivinyo ziqinisekisa ukuthi isiguli sibhekene nanoma yibuphi ubunzima bokuphefumula, ubuhlungu besifuba, nanoma yiziphi izindawo zokuvuvukala. Okunye okungase kuhlolwe ukuhlolwa kwegesi yegazi, okubandakanya ukuhlolwa kwe-oxygen kanye namazinga e-carbon dioxide egazini. Okunye ukuhlola kuhlanganisa ukuhlolwa kwamafinyila, ukuhlolwa komchamo ngokushesha, kanye ne-X-ray yesifuba.

    Ukwelashwa kwenyumoniya kuvame ukwenziwa ngu ama-antibiotic anqunyelwe. Lokhu kusebenza kahle uma inyumoniya ibangelwa amagciwane. Ukukhethwa kwemithi elwa namagciwane kunqunywa izici ezinjengobudala, uhlobo lwezimpawu, nobukhulu besifo. Ukwelashwa okwengeziwe esibhedlela kuphakanyiswa kubantu abanobuhlungu besifuba noma yiluphi uhlobo lokuvuvukala.

    Ijakhethi yezokwelapha ehlakaniphile

    Ukwethulwa kwejakhethi yezokwelapha kwazalwa ngemuva kokuthi uBrian Turyabagye, 24, owayethweswe iziqu zobunjiniyela, etshelwe ukuthi ugogo womngani wakhe ushonile ngemuva kokutholakala ngendlela engafanele ngenyumoniya. Umalaleveva kanye nenyumoniya kunezimpawu ezifanayo njengemfiva, amakhaza atholakala kuwo wonke umzimba, nezinkinga zokuphefumula. Lokhu ukugqagqana kwezimpawu ingenye yezimbangela eziphambili zokufa e-Uganda. Lokhu kuvamile ezindaweni ezinemiphakathi empofu kanye nokuntuleka kokufinyelela ekunakekelweni kwezempilo okufanele. Ukusetshenziswa kwe-stethoscope ukuze kubonakale umsindo wamaphaphu ngesikhathi sokuphefumula kuvame ukuchaza kabi inyumoniya yesifo sofuba noma umalaleveva. Lobu buchwepheshe obusha bukwazi ukuhlukanisa kangcono inyumoniya ngokusekelwe ezingeni lokushisa, imisindo ekhishwa amaphaphu, nezinga lokuphefumula.

    Ukusebenzisana phakathi kuka-Turyabagye nozakwabo, u-Koburongo, ovela kubunjiniyela bezokuxhumana, kwasungula i-prototype Medical Smart Jacket. Yaziwa nangokuthi “Mama-Ope” kit (Ithemba likaMama). Kuhlanganisa ibhantshi kanye nedivaysi yezinyo eliluhlaza okunikeza ukufinyeleleka kwamarekhodi esiguli kungakhathaliseki ukuthi ukuphi udokotela kanye nedivayisi yokunakekelwa kwezempilo. Lesi sici sitholakala ku-iCloud software yebhantshi.

    Ithimba lisebenzela ukwakha ilungelo lobunikazi lekhithi. I-Mamaope ingasatshalaliswa emhlabeni wonke. Le kit iqinisekisa ukuhlonzwa kusenesikhathi kwenyumoniya ngenxa yekhono layo lokubona ukucindezeleka kokuphefumula ngokushesha.
