The Advance – Patient Testament

Advance health care proxy with support available opportunities of interest for the case that patients can not regulate their affairs – in particular in the medical field -. The patient is a free-form intent of mentally competent person. It is individually, in writing, prepared may also verbally for future treatment, if the own consent incapacity occurs. The type and extent of medical treatment are specified in different situations. It is not always the doctor, to the as an advance directive is addressed.

It may be someone else that constantly participates in the treatment and care. The advance directive contains an expressed will. He must be observed. Patients can provide for the cases of business or inability to consent, which arise as a result of age or disease, in their own personal affairs. There are several Options: advance directive, but also health care proxy or service available. The advance is also called patient Testament.

The patient manifests himself to his wishes, medical treatment or no treatment, perhaps limiting the treatment affect. Most of the time thinking an advance directive in the face of a favored disease. Often, the person is already in the last phase of life. The legislator has decided on 06 18th, 2009: an advance directive is binding. The doctor agrees to follow the writing written will. With the advance directive, you can explicitly set what must be for medical treatment for artificial nutrition, pain relief and life support if you maybe not can decide this by accident, by particularly serious disease. Now, the following applies: performed a medical treatment against the wishes of a patient, so it is a bodily injury, and it is unlawful. Thus, doctors make punishable by law. This whole theory with the patient Testament sounds simple, but it is anything but straightforward. The implementation is very difficult in reality. One wonders again, so a scope of a specific advance directive must be how far: the decision so just in there provided some emergency turns out? Or for any similar emergencies? Now only the known methods of treatment are taken into account, or the new? It may also lead to that the prognosis for this particular disease have significantly improved since writing a living will. What makes one then what about the doctor? So there are still many questions that need to be answered. This is the task of the Supreme Court in the next few years. There must be no vacancies in a living will, everything should be clarified. As I said, one thing is clear throughout: a living will, the effective was built and tailored to a specific case, is mandatory for physicians. Anders decided can only in the case if the consent capacity has been wanting a patient when composing his advance; It can also happen that the enacting terms in hindsight again would like to move away from his statements. It must be visible to outsiders. An advance directive served her purpose, if she should be recognized as binding. It gives the doctor at least one policy. Who is patient will then, so to speak, a handicap for the family and especially for the supervisor, it is essential. The supervisor be ordered exactly, that she would so decide, as the patient decide if he still could. On the basis of an advance directive, it will be easy for the Manager to act in the spirit of the patient.

Movement As A Foundation Of Our Health

About the importance of the movement for health, passes the summer into the autumn and the nature turns up slowly. In fact, autumn also for people is the season in which most of the inspirations and thoughts come up. It is good to have a period of reflection and relaxation, strengthened to be able to go further. A walk or hike through the forest would be an ideal project to do so. Not to rush, deep-breathe out and all the senses to sharpen; by little things on the side of the road, up to the entire experience of nature, nature is just the best therapist.

However, situations may require it to take a sympathetic ear to complete. The interview is also a certain reflection and new ways can be committed through the received advice and help. It is important to know what goals you want to achieve and what kinds of things you want to avoid in your life. Next to nature, art is a vital area. In art, we can offer our creativity free development. The man is a deeply creative nature and art as to dismiss something marginal, would be fatal. To be able to live healthy is subject to no automatisms.

The effects of unhealthy lifestyles are usually only visible with a time delay. In order to promote health are mental and both physical aspects of relevance according to the motto “A healthy mind in a healthy body” and vice versa. The movement should be an essential point in our daily lives. In our civilized world is only one side talking about diets and concealed, that plenty of exercise is the real key to the prevention of many diseases. Plenty of exercise are not only calories burned, but the whole metabolism. Then, what does “adequate movement”? Here, you can hear many different responses from many corners. But the fact is that the original man is marching daily many kilometers on foot. Stone age men were hunting on the way and the women of time brought water and have collected herbs and fruits. Scientists go out with stone age people from a distance traveled daily by 20 to 30 kilometers. Run or go within 30 km of Trebur today’s people daily? If not, the known diseases of civilization in the game come quickly. The diet is also very important, but first and foremost, the movement is a crucial factor. The recommendation is therefore more stairs instead of escalators to use and, instead of taking only the car. More walking or hiking! Your mind and body will thank you. Like you in this sense in this autumn time promote health and relaxation and get positive inspirations for your way of life! Dieter Galloway (psychological consultant)

Stefan Morsch Foundation

Oldest of Stammzellspenderdatei in Germany has given more than 600 Lifesaver more than 600 people have donated in the past year through the mediation of the Stefan Morsch Foundation stem cells. “Emil Morsch, the almost 71 founder and CEO of the oldest Stammzellspenderdatei of in Germany, is proud of: 600 chances are that terminally ill people to save lives.” This development is due to the fact that the Foundation has motivated consistently young adults over the past years to register as unrelated to the file. We have systematically reduced our file contrary to the demographic trend. Because we will continue to work this year”, so rotten. 2013, the Stefan Morsch Foundation has organized a total of nearly 350 typing actions. A focus was on the registration of young people up to 40 years. In principle all healthy adults over 18 years old can register.

Also young people aged 16 or over can be registered with the written consent of the parents. All donors remain until the completion of the Sixty-first year of life in the file saved. Only set the maximum age for a free introduction to 40 years. “Emil Morsch explains this definition which is aimed on the responsible use with donations, but also responds to the requests of the transplantation clinics: we have learned that donors who are older than 40 years are only very rarely requested by the transplant centers as a donor.” Also increase diseases and ailments from that age. Are several donor for a patient to provide transplant clinics have the following priorities: young donors are preferred the older donors.

And men be selected rather than donor, than women. Is borne out by the statistics of the Foundation: last year are of the more than 600 Stammzellspendern about as two-thirds younger than 40 years most of them even younger than 30 years. 511 Marrow were men.

Alexander People

Usually, he does his service at the Panzerbatallion 104 in the Oberpfalz barracks in Pfreimd. He did his military service in Willow 2011. Then he let typify themselves by the Stefan Morsch Foundation. Teams of the Stefan Morsch Foundation in whole Germany are traveling almost daily to win young soldiers as unrelated. More than 3500 members of the Bundeswehr in the donor file could be recorded in the first half of 2013. People who have declared themselves ready in an emergency for a leukemia patient People to donate stem cells and to give the chance of a cure to the patient. “People like Alexander G.: I thought that is a great thing.” Less than a year later he was needed. More than 10,000 people annually suffer from this disease in Germany alone.

When chemotherapy and radiation do not help, just a stem cell transplant can help. Through them, a new red system is implanted patients. To do this, the patient but needs a donor whose tissue characteristics correspond as far as possible with your own. Then searches for a genetic twin. More than 20 million people are registered in the bone marrow and Stammzellspenderdateien as the Stefan Morsch Foundation and yet it is still a fluke when a matching donor is found for a patient.

Alexander G. is the appropriate genetic twin for an Australian patient. He knows nothing about the woman whether she is young or old, whether she has children, is rich or poor. It doesn’t matter to him. In January 2012, the young soldier Stammzellzellen gives: With the transplantation of stem cells, the patient gets a new red system. These stem cells are located in the bone marrow. There are two ways to transfer them: the removal of bone marrow on the iliac Crest never from the spinal cord. Or the removal of peripheral blood stem cells from the blood similar to dialysis.

Stefan Morsch Foundation

And yet something showing the statistics: not only that women are becoming rarer and rarer as a donor can be selected. Women with more than two pregnancies have a vanishingly small proportion in the Stammzellspenderstatistik. Sieglinde Wolf, head of the sampling station (Apheresis) at the Stefan Morsch Foundation, knows why: “antibodies can be made In the context of pregnancy, which can endanger the success of transplantation after today’s level of knowledge. Therefore the transplant clinics only select women with more than two pregnancies, if otherwise no other donors to choose.” Emil Morsch regrets: we know that women and especially mothers, are highly motivated donors. However, the fact is: you are the worse donor. Therefore we must ask women with more than two pregnancies in the future to contribute to the costs of typing, we fund from donations.” A concern is the expansion of the network of cooperation that has been quietly building the Foundation the Foundation Chairmen. For several years, the Foundation directly in the barracks in whole Germany clears young soldiers about the topic Rising up: nearly half of the 350 typing actions took place in cooperation with the German armed forces. And 54 percent of all donors in 2013 newly typed more than 9000 are members of the Bundeswehr.

This long-term cooperation is noticeable in the donor statistics: of the more than 600 people who 2013 have given the opportunity to heal a people as unrelated, 227 men and women who were registered with Bundeswehr typing were. For 2014 already the first joint appointments with the blood transfusion service of the Bundeswehr are on”, so Emil Morsch. “The founder but also refers to further cooperation, which is only started and successfully ran in 2013: the Stefan Morsch Foundation with the blood transfusion service West offers typing.” In North Rhine-Westphalia, Saarland, and Rhineland-Palatinate blood donors in the DRC in the donor file of the Stefan Morsch Foundation can be entered. Almost 1400 new potential marrow are already a member in the team of the Lifesaver of Birkenfeld so end of 2013 Stammzellspenderdatei become common blood donation and typing actions (see dates below). To inform young people about the opportunities of the registry, rotten still sees as a central task of all German donor centers. Therefore many typing actions in schools, universities and training companies were organized in the past year these contacts should be further expanded. Emil Morsch: social commitment today is an important factor in the selection of their staff for many businesses.

How could you more dedicated as a completely stranger to give terminally ill people a chance at life as a young, healthy man?” What is marrow? In principle any healthy adult can register.
