Let's talk about tetanus

The smallest scratch, burn can become the gateway to infection. Tetanus spores are everywhere. How to protect yourself? Get vaccinated. The causative agent of tetanus releases a toxin that causes the disease. We start protecting children at the age of 2 months. Then 4-6-18 months, 6, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56, 66, 76, 86, 96 years (and then every 10 years). It's never too late to start and catch up. If an adult is not vaccinated or does not have documents about previous vaccinations - the ADPM course immediately, then after a month and after 6 months. Why re-introduce the drug? To keep antibody levels at a protective level. How dangerous is tetanus - 50% of patients can die. The first symptoms are muscle twitching near the injury site, a forced (sardonic) smile, difficulty opening the mouth (trismus), spasms of various muscle groups. A person can bend in an arc (opisthotonus). Paralysis of the respiratory and cardiac muscles may occur. If an injury has occurred, you should consult a doctor.
