Experts: Adults should also be vaccinated against pertussis

Epidemiologists stress that in recent years we have been observing the return of infectious diseases, which for years have been considered to be under control or eradicated. One of them is pertussis, and its incidence has also been on the rise in Poland. This is confirmed by the data of the National Institute of Hygiene – in 2016, there were as many as 6,856 cases of the disease, while in 2017 there were slightly fewer – 3,034 [1]. Most vulnerable to the disease are young people between the ages of 10 and 14, adults and the elderly. According to experts, the most effective preventive measure continue to be vaccinations – mandatory for children, but also those recommended for adults who should take a booster dose every 10 years.
Staying ahead of cancer. When should you undergo genetic testing?

Hereditary factors account for approx. 10-30 percent of all cancer cases[1]. They are particularly significant in the case of breast cancer and ovarian cancer, which are caused by a mutation of the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes, increasing the risk of ovarian cancer by approx. 40 percent and breast cancer by as much as 70 percent. It is estimated that today these disorders occur in 1 in every 300 women in Poland. Experts stress that those whose family members were diagnosed with cancer at an early age need to be particularly vigilant and should undergo testing for genetic predisposition.
Accidents at work. The first 10 minutes are crucial.

By the end of September 2017, more than 56,100 persons were injured as a consequence of accidents at work. According to the data of the Central Statistical Office, the most accident-prone sectors included industrial processing, trade, transport, storage, and construction. Due to their inability to work, employees collectively spent more than 1.8 million days on sick leaves – this is more than 33 days per one injured person. In many situations, the consequences of the accident could have been much less serious if appropriate aid was provided immediately. Human health and lives frequently depend on whether employees (or witnesses of an accident) are able to react properly and provide first aid.
More than half of Poles are treated at private dental offices

The Polish dental market, following the example of the European market, is in the process of consolidation. Small offices are increasingly joining large networks. This is taking place to meet the expectations of patients who value quality services, convenience, trust in doctors, and modern office equipment. In Poland, this market has been dominated by private entities that can afford expensive investments (as public spending on dentistry makes up only 2.5 percent of the entire National Health Fund budget). Over half of Polish patients are treated by private entities.
Pregnabit at Medicover Poland medical centres

Nestmedic has signed a contract with an international private healthcare company. The mobile CTG system, Pregnabit, will be launched at Medicover Poland medical centres. This launch will mark the beginning of further contracts with international medical networks.
More and more small and medium companies are investing in medical care for employees

According to the latest Eurostat data, Poland is in the top five countries of the European Union with the lowest unemployment rate. Although on one hand these statistics are a cause for joy, they also pose a big challenge for many employers, who are having a harder time finding good employees these days. In order to be competitive on the market, you have to offer attractive non-financial benefits. At the top of the candidates' list of expectations is private medical care – as many as 14 percent of them declare it important. And although it is already a standard in corporations, it is still a big challenge for small and micro-enterprises, in which only 6 percent of employees are covered by private medical care. Why is it worth investing in it?
Medicover opens Eye Surgery Clinic

Refraction defects affecting visual acuity constitute approx. 42% of eyesight problems, which makes them the most common ophthalmological problem in patients of all ages in our population. There are several ways to correct them. As much as 80% of patients resort to wearing glasses, and less than one in ten people uses contact lenses. Laser correction of vision defects is also gaining popularity as it offers permanent and immediate effects. And with the progress of medicine, this procedure has become painless and safe while significantly improving the quality of vision and thus patients' comfort of life. Responding to our patients' needs, Medicover Hospital and Libermedic Warsaw Ophthalmology Centre established Eye Surgery Clinic. The clinic is supervised professionally by Professor Iwona Grabska-Liberek MD, President of the Polish Society of Ophthalmology, a long-term consultant of the Mazovian Province in the field of ophthalmology, who specializes in ocular microsurgery.

Planning a May weekend? Watch out for ticks

They are small and very inconspicuous, and their bite can cause serious diseases. Contrary to popular belief, we can find them not only in forests or meadows, but also in squares, city parks or near our homes. As experts stress, as many as 40 percent of ticks, as it’s them we’re talking about, can be carriers of dangerous bacteria and viruses that cause Lyme disease, babesiosis and tick-borne encephalitis. So if you’re planning a picnic, you should know how to protect yourself from them, what to do when a tick bites, and when to consult a doctor.
