Elderly people with low body temperature should avoid medication contraindications
After entering the winter, the body temperature drops sharply, which poses a threat to the health of the elderly. If the health care is not proper, it may die due to the elderly hypothermia.
銆€銆€The human body temperature is below 35 months, which is hypothermia.
According to foreign surveys, the incidence of hypothermia in the elderly in autumn and winter accounts for about 10%.
Domestic statistics show that in the winter of 60 years old, the mortality rate is 60% higher than usual in the winter.
The cause of the disease is: the elderly have a low response to cold, the body heat production is reduced, and the skin blood vessels are not well contracted, resulting in a large loss of skin, and the body temperature cannot be maintained at a normal level.
銆€銆€If the elderly suffer from hypothermia, they should be cautious when choosing drugs. They cannot choose some contraindications.
Such as amitriptyline, methyldopa, diazepam, hibernation, etc., these drugs can inhibit the hypothalamic posterior thermoregulatory center, promote peripheral vasodilation, inhibit vasoconstriction, interfere with metabolic metabolism, can reduce the patient’s environmentThe reaction interferes with the response of the elderly to the cold, resulting in a decrease in body temperature.
Therefore, the elderly should use less or not these drugs, especially in the autumn and winter.
