What is the size of Mantoux: the norm in children

Many readers are interested in what size Mantoux is the norm in children? To answer this question, we offer a comprehensive study.

What you need to do Mantoux

Mantoux reaction is a minimally invasive and informative method for identifying the causative agent of tuberculosis – infection with Koch mycobacterium. With its help, early diagnosis is possible when there is no symptomatology. Tuberculosis is an infectious and inflammatory disease, most often affecting the respiratory system.

Pelvic Presentation: Flipping Techniques

Presentation of the fetus is the position of the baby in the womb of the mother. Usually it is examined at 32-33 weeks of gestation. Prior to this period, with improper presentation of the fetus, the tactics of expectant observation are used in the expectation that the fetus itself will take the desired position. However, after 33 weeks, the probability of a flip to the correct position becomes lower with each week. In order to help the baby to take the right position, you can use special exercises from corrective gymnastics.

Fetal position correction
There are several methods that can help correct the presentation of the fetus in the uterus.

This method consists of special exercises that a pregnant woman can perform lying down. To do this, she just needs, lying on her side, turn first to the right, then to the left side. However, this method is not effective for women at 34-35 weeks of gestation. The fact is that at this time the baby inside reaches such a size that it completely fills the entire space of the uterus. Now it is already difficult for him to make a turn upside down. In this case, more energetic exercises can help him. Continue reading

Teeth don’t wait, like people don’t be late

We are always waiting for something or someone. We are waiting for the tooth fairy to arrive, who will wave the wand and the child’s teeth will stop hurting. Well, or the child will stop complaining. Waiting is an insidious enemy. It will not play in your favor, especially in “dental matters”. Today I will give an example of common situations that are urgent.

We don’t wait, but we go to the dentist
