Respect the right not to reveal my treatment says David Uip to Bolsonaro
THE OCCUPATION OF HYPOCRATES AND THE CODE OF MEDICAL ETHICS – The Hippocratic oath and the code of medical ethics – The oath of Hippocrates and the code of medical ethics
Hippocrates, who was born in Greece, in Kos, the Greek island of the Dodecanese, around 460 BC is, still today, considered the “Father of Medicine”. His work, which includes the famous Aphorisms; the Four Fundamental Principles (never harm the sick / not seek what the patient cannot offer, the famous miracles / fight against what is causing the disease / believe in the healing power of Nature); and the oath that bears his name, remains current.
In Brazil, in all the graduation ceremonies of the Brazilian medical schools, the trainees take the hypocratic oath and, in addition, the doctors present at the ceremony usually reaffirm it:
“I swear, by medical Apollo, by Asclepius, Hygia and Panacea, and I take as witnesses all the gods and all the goddesses, to fulfill according to my power and my reason, the following promise: to esteem, as much as my parents, that who taught me this art; make common life and, if necessary, share my goods with him; have his children for my own brothers; teach them this art, if they need to learn it, without remuneration and without written contract to make the precepts, the lessons and all the rest of the teaching, my children, those of my teacher and the disciples enrolled according to the regulations of the profession, but only to them, I will apply the regimes for the good of the sick according to my power and understanding, never to cause harm or harm to someone.no one will please, neither mortal medicine nor advice that leads to loss. Likewise, I will not give any woman an abortive substance. I will keep my life and my art immaculate. I will not practice carving, even on a confirmed calculation; I will leave this operation to the practitioners who take care of it. In the whole house, there I will enter for the good of the sick, keeping myself away from all voluntary damage and all seduction, especially away from the pleasures of love, with women or with free or enslaved men. Whatever I have seen or heard in the exercise of or outside the profession and in society, which I do not need to divulge, I will keep entirely secret. If I fulfill this oath with fidelity, may I be able to happily enjoy life and my profession, honored forever among men; if I walk away from or violate it, the opposite will happen. “
Catching Disease and Showing Faces
Recovered from treatment for the new coronavirus, the coordinator of the Containment Center for the disease in the State of São Paulo, David Uip, shied away from questions about the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine during his hospitalization, and minimized the importance of results in the your personal case. He has been questioned about the use of the drug, which still has no scientifically proven results for the treatment of covid-19, after being discharged.
“I did not prescribe myself, I did not prescribe myself, I was cared for by doctors I trusted,” said Uip, who is an infectious disease specialist. “It is absolutely personal and, as I respect my patients, I would like to be respected in something that is very personal and very private. I don’t do this to hide anything, but I don’t want to make my case a model for anything. “
“… I did not prescribe myself …” soon, so, he means that Leu, knows what he took, but he will not speak . Using the power of not being your own doctor. However, being a politician, he hides the solution or cure for his illness from everyone. So it is as political as the politicians who are its leaders. I don’t trust a person like that. Is it worth spending on a doctor that low for money?
Personally participated in the decision to change the recommendation
Uip also said that he personally participated in the decision to change the recommendation for the use of substances in treatments in the country. The protocol was changed after a meeting last Thursday, 31, with the Minister of Health, Luiz Henrique Mandetta, and other doctors .
Since last week, after reaching a consensus at the meeting, the recommendation of health agencies is that chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine should only be used after a formal authorization by the patient, made at the time he is admitted. Until then, the medicine was used from the moment in patients, with more serious health conditions, were intubated with respirators.
“At this meeting, from a distance, he was president of the Federal Council of Medicine (Mauro Luiz de Britto Ribeiro), which endorsed this decision,” said Uip. “This is absolutely appropriate within the laws that govern health in the country.”
Use is defended by the president
The use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine has been constantly advocated by President Jair Bolsonaro (without a party), although experts warn that the results with the use of the substance are preliminary, and that individual cases of success are not enough to determine whether treatment is larger scale in Coronavirus .
There are cases of patients infected with coronavirus who were treated with chloroquine and, even so, ended up dying. This occurred with the first victim of the virus in Bahia, a 74-year-old man who was hospitalized for 12 days. The results of studies that have pointed out the success of the substance in treatments have been questioned internationally.Respect the right not to reveal my treatment says David Uip to Bolsonaro
