Nienke Franse is our new practice assistent for mental healthcare

I have been working as a practice assistent for mental healthcare at Beukenlaan 4 since February 2019.

I see patients with mild psychological problems or psycho-social problems. I studied psychology at the University in Leiden and Amsterdam, with a specialization in communication about lifestyle change within the GP practice.

After I have worked in reintegration services for a while, I now take the step towards care. Delft is not unknown to me, during my student days I lived there and I worked at the Beestenmarkt in a café.

At the moment I live in Rotterdam. I am present on Monday, Wednesday (every other week), Thursday and Friday.

Owee!

Finish an antibiotics cure or not?

There is a lot of media attention for an article by British doctors, stating that finishing an antibiotic cure would not always be needed. However, the general advice to complete a cure still applies in the Netherlands.

In comparison with other countries, the Netherlands is economical with antibiotics and doctors will prescribe as short a cure as possible. There is no evidence that shorter cures are better.

Whether you can stop antibiotics earlier depends on your situation, which antibiotics you have and what infection. Therefore, always consult us if you are considering this.

High temperatures this week!

What can I do in hot weather?

– Drink enough
Make sure you drink enough, even if you are not thirsty. Do you urinate less than you normally do? Or is your urine dark yellow? Then you can drink some extra. Drink little alcohol.
Take a bottle of water if you go for a couple of hours.

– Keep yourself cool
Wear thin clothes. Stay in the shadow. Take a (feet) bath or shower. Or occasionally take a cool wet towel in your neck. Sleep under a thin blanket.

– Protect yourself from sunshine with sunscreen, sunglasses, light clothing and a cap or hat. Sunscreen does not protect against heat.

– Limit physical exercise in the afternoon. Take advantage of the cooler morning and evening for your groceries, hikes or sports.

– Keep your house cool
Prevent warming of your home with blinds, a fan or, if you have, air conditioning. Provide ventilation by keeping the ventilation grates open or opening windows. Make it cooler in the morning or in the evening by opening windows and doors to fresh air.

Who is at risk of heat?

On very hot days the following people run more risk:

– people over 65 years old

– children under the age of 15, especially babies and toddlers

– People with a chronic condition such as diabetes mellitus, heart or lung disease.

– People with overweight

– People who use certain medicines, drink a lot of alcohol or use drugs

– Mentally challenged people

– People with a bad physical condition

How does dehydration / heat stroke develop?

When it’s hot, the body loses moisture by sweating. The body cools itself.

If you lose more moisture than you drink, your body eventually has too little moisture to evaporate. This increases the temperature in your body.

When exerted, the temperature may also increase. This is because the muscles make more heat than the skin can emit by sweating.

Due to insufficient moisture in the body, the skin of the trunk, arms and legs is not well bled. They then become pale and stop sweating. The body temperature is then higher. That is dangerous.

If this happens in the sun, we call it a sunstroke. Someone with a sunstroke is too hot and too dry.

The combination of drying and overheating can be dangerous. It is called a heat stroke.
