◆How to wear a face mask properly
-Wash hands or disinfect hands before wearing
-Cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
-Do not touch the face mask after wearing it
-Make sure it is easy to breathe

◆How to choose a face mask
-Recommended disposable face masks
-Has multiple layers of non-woven fabric
-Has a nose wire

If it needs to be adjusted many times, it is not fitting properly. Try a different type or brand.

◆Incorrect ways of wearing face masks
-Put it on your neck.
-Put it on your forehead
-Covering only the nose
-Hanging from one ear
-Drape it over the arm

◆Reasons why "sticking out the nose" is not a good idea
1) The nose expresses a large number of ACE2 receptors (*), so it is important to cover and protect it.
2) Respiratory droplets are also released from the nose, and if the face mask is not worn properly, droplets will leak through the gaps.
*ACE2 receptors are substances in the body that are thought to be related to corona infection.

It collaborates with neighboring medical institutions, nursing homes, home care support offices, and community comprehensive support centers. The "Smart:DR" system introduced at the center was developed in accordance with the Business Continuity Planning (BCP), which is designed to help hospitals and companies minimize damage, continue operations, and recover in the event of a disaster, terrorist attack, or other emergency. This system also has a function to respond to a new type of coronavirus infection, considering a pandemic as a natural disaster.

◆Reasons for the introduction of this system at the Sakuragawa Regional Medical Center
(1) To prepare a system in case of disaster
(2) To ensure thorough health management of employees
(3) To promptly conduct vaccinations and monitor the health management of employees afterwards

◆Point 1: Self-monitoring to understand yourself
The brain determines the perception of stress, so the first step is to notice what you are reacting to. From this awareness, you will be able to find a way to cope with your stress.

◆Point 2: Self-management to cope on your own
1) Increasing opportunities of coping
 Coping is a deliberate method of coping with stress.
 -Find coping strategies to deal with stressors. Try to have more than one coping strategy.
 -If one way of coping does not work, switch to another or combine them.

 Example: Usual evening drinking
 Basic action:
1. Wash your hands, 2. Drink from your favorite glass
 Coping behavior:
1. change the hand soap, 2. drink in a different glass

2) Don't get caught up in automatic thoughts
 Automatic thoughts are the thoughts, images, and ways of perceiving things that pop into your head by themselves.
 The way we perceive things is determined by our emotions.
 -Recognize your own thinking habits
 -Don't get caught up in negative thoughts
 -Be flexible with how you think

◆Key Points: Psychological First Aid (PFA)
This is a first aid for children in case of disaster or emergency without harming their minds.
・It is not a medical treatment
・You don't need to be an expert to do it
・Do not force out feelings and reactions
・It will help the child to return to the normal state by himself/herself

Step 0: Before you begin
In order to perform PFA effectively and to protect your own safety, assess the situation.
1) About the crisis event
2) Find out what services and support are available from the government
3) Find out about the safety and security situation (in case of disaster)

Step 1: Observe
1) Check for safety → Monitor body temperature/Make sure to avoid the "Three Cs" environment etc
(2) Look for children who need urgent care
(3) Look for children who are under serious stress, such as those with unusual behavior

Step 2: Listen
1) Stay close to the child who needs support
2) Ask about their needs and concerns
3) Lend an ear as a way to help them calm down

Step 3: Connect
1) Pay attention to allergies and etc and provide support so that the child can receive appropriate assistance
2) Help them till they can cope with problems independently
3) Connect them to support from their loved ones and society
4) Provide information on "protecting their own rights" and "how to get help"


The application of "Japanese Guidelines for the Treatment of Sepsis 2020" has been released

Smart119 has developed a medical support application that allows users to view and search the Japanese version of the Guidelines for the Treatment of Sepsis 2020, which was jointly prepared by the Japanese Society of Intensive Care Medicine and the Japanese Society of Emergency Medicine, on smartphones and tablet devices.
Smart119 CEO Taka-aki Nakada, who is also a professor of emergency and intensive care medicine at the Graduate School of Medicine, University of Chiba, participated in the development of this application.

"Japanese version of sepsis treatment guidelines 2020 app"
The JJ-SSCG 2020 app is designed to make the guidelines more useful for sepsis treatment at the bedside. We have also developed an application with functions such as a diagnostic flow display and SOFA score calculation to support decision making on clinical issues. This application strongly supports appropriate diagnostic decisions towards sepsis in clinical settings. This application is a highly portable guideline that can be viewed on smartphones and tablets at the bedside. It also has excellent searchability and a function to calculate severity scores.

"I would like to save more emergency patients by introducing new technology to the field of acute care, and by being flexible and creative." --Smart119, which I started with this in mind, will actively work on things that can be used in clinical settings to support medical personnel and contribute to "saving lives".
