  • How do you deal with a crisis when you are not in the hospital?

    Posted by Tito Oye on June 9, 2020 at 6:54 am

    Just because we’re on lockdown doesn’t mean that sickle cell is non-existent. We may still be experiencing the symptoms of sickle cell just as much as, or maybe even more than, before.

    During this pandemic, I am trying to avoid the hospital whenever possible so I have been doing all I can at home to stay healthy.

    When it comes to managing a crisis at home, what do you do to help?

    In my case and this is happens a lot of times i have an Urgent Plan at home such of Medication like opioid ampules and saline and i can manage myself even no body with me i have an experience about saline and the medication doses, so that’s it and sure i will contact my doctor to inform him on phone and he will control my dosage, that’s all.

    It is good to know that you are keeping on top of things.   I know that procedures and protocols have changed drastically and it is really good to know that you have been managing well.
