  • Telephone-assisted fi rst aid

  • Erysipelas

    Erysipelas is an acute infectious disease of the skin which is, in the vast majority of the cases, caused by the bacteria of the genus streptococci (Streptococcus pyogenes), and, rarely, also by stafylococci (Staphylococcus aureus). In extremely rare cases, this disease can also be caused by other types of bacteria, such as Klebsiella pneumonie or Hemophillus influenzae. The disease commonly affects women, but it manifests in men earlier.

  • Hand and Wrist Rehabilitation

    You can start rehabilitating your hand and wrist immediately after the injury. Some action, which will lead to faster recovery and restoration of normal functions of the injured limb, can be taken at the very beginning. Immediately after the injury, it is necessary to ice the hand. If there is pain in your hand and wrist, a good idea is to immobilise them and keep them elevated, because soft tissues – especially those on the back of your hand – swell very quickly.

  • Travelling during Pregnancy

    More and more pregnant women travel abroad, including to developing countries. However, there is no certainty for any woman that the pregnancy will be without complications, both at home or abroad. According to the WHO data, up to 15% of pregnant women are at risk of more severe complications.

  • Quitting smoking

    Just like with smoking, there are a number of myths and half-truths also linked to quitting smoking. People who fall for deceptive information often end up complicating the process of gradual cessation in vain.

  • Dupuytren's contracture

    Dupuytren's contracture is a condition when palpable fibrous nodules (small lumps) and cords start to form in the palm or in the fingers of an affected hand. These nodules then make it impossible to extend the fingers. The disease is not painful, but it is limiting for the patient. The contracture of fingers develops gradually over several months or years. Thickened fibrous cords in the palm and fingers shorten (contract) and make it more and more difficult to extend the fingers.

  • Contraception

    Contraceptive methods are as old as mankind itself. For centuries, people have tried to find a way to prevent pregnancy. Given the current growth rate, the world population will double in 40 years; and in 20 years, in some socio-economically disadvantaged countries.

  • Allergic reaction

    An allergic reaction is an exaggerated response of the immune system to otherwise harmless substances. These substances are thus called allergens. An allergic reaction can be evidenced from a wide range of symptoms varying from mild ones to life-threatening conditions. In the Czech Republic, over two million people suffer from some form of allergy.

  • Sunburn

    Sunburn is usually not serious skin damage and does not require medical aid. However, in more severe cases, when the person is burnt over a large area, or there is blistering of the skin, or the sunburn is accompanied by other symptoms, such as rash, itching or fever, medical aid should be sought.

  • Otoplasty – Ear pinning

    Prominent ears present a congenital malformation affecting one or both auricles. According to the statistics, protruding ears are genetically determined (the deformation is hereditary in approximately 60% of patients).
