HOME PHOTOTHERAPY 家中照光治疗


What is the solution come to your mind when you get to know your new born baby is having Jaundice?
I'm sure majority of the parents will send the baby to the hospital for phototherapy treatment.
But do you know you can have the phototherapy treatment at home?
I've chosen home phototherapy for my baby.
To me, I don't think I'll have good rest (during my confinement month) by staying together with my baby in the hospital.
That's why I went for 2nd option.
This home phototherapy treatment was recommend by a doctor.
There is a company which is renting the equipment for this treatment.
However, they won't rent the equipment to whose staying in the confinement centre.
It has to be at your home.
This is some kind of their rules & regulations.
I was so comfortable to be at home and at the same time looking at my baby having the treatment for 3 days.
Another thing is home phototherapy is much more cheaper than in the hospital.

Below is some information about Home Phototherapy.


WHY HOME PHOTOTHERAPY
为何家中照光治疗

Convenient
Home phototherapy offers an option to treat your jaundiced baby in a loving, comfortable and secure environment of your own home. In the comfort of your own home, you can be close with your baby and your family. You are no longer separated from your baby during his/her early stage of life. Furthermore, you will be able to breastfeed your baby without interruption. Therefore, it will increase parents and baby bonding.


方便
宝宝能够在家中亲切,舒适和安全的环境进行照光治疗。您不必和您刚出生心爱的宝宝分开。在接受治疗期间您将能够在家里照料您的宝宝也继续家人保持连系。此外,您也可以没有中断性的用母乳喂养您的宝宝。


Safe & Effective
Our phototherapy lights have been designed to meet the safety and medical requirements. Having the light source from the bottom of the bed avoids the bright lights shinning on the baby's eyes.


安全有效
我们的照光仪器是符合医疗的品质和安全标准。我们的照光仪器设计的光源是在床的底部。这可避免明亮的灯光照耀在婴儿的眼睛。


Affordable
Home phototherapy offers an affordable price to every level of community.


节省合算
在家中照光治疗的费用远远低于在私人医院的治疗费用。



GENERAL INFO


What is Jaundice?

It is a yellow color of the skin and whites of the eyes due to excessive Bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin is produced from the normal breakdown of red blood cells. Almost all babies have some Jaundice during the first few days of life. Jaundice usually appears around the second or third day of life. A Jaundiced baby's skin will usually appear yellow first on the face, followed by the chest and stomach, and finally, the legs. High levels of Bilirubin can cause brain damage (e.g. deafness and cerebral palsy).


黄疸是什么?

黄疸是在许多新生儿皮肤或眼白上见到的黄颜色。当血液中含有浓度过高的胆红素可使身体偏黄。胆红素是因为红血球定期分解所产生的。几乎所有的新生儿都会出现黄疸症的问题。新生儿理性黄疸会在出生后第二到三天皮肤开始变黄。黄疸通常首先会从面不呈现出来,然后随着胆红素上升而展延到胸,腹,臀部,腿部。胆红素指标严重的过高时可能导致脑部受损。



How can I tell if my baby is Jaundiced?

The color of the skin and whites of the eyes will appear yellow under natural daylight. Jaundiced will usually see it in the face first and as the Bilirubin level increases, the Jaundice graduallymove down to the chest and abdomen. If the hands and feet are Jaundiced, the Jaundice is severe. The only accurate way to tell if a baby has severe Jaundice is to do a blood test to check the Bilirubin level.


怎么知道我的婴儿有黄疸?

在明亮的地方,有黄疸的婴儿皮肤和眼白会变黄。黄疸通常首先从面部呈现出来,然后随着胆红素上升而展延到胸,腹,臀部,腿部。如果有严重黄疸,手掌和脚底也可呈黄色。若要准确知道黄疸的严重性,必须通过血液测试来检查胆红素指标。



How is Jaundice treated?

Mild Jaundice does not need any treatment and it will resolve on its own, usually within 2 weeks. If the Bilirubin level is high and rising quickly, it is treated by phototherapy. By exposing the baby to the special blue lights, the Bilirubin molecules will be able to be excreted easily. If the Jaundice is severe, a blood exchange with fresh blood may be required.


如何治疗黄疸?

大部分的黄疸都不需要治疗。轻微的黄疸症一般会在两周内便消失。如果胆红素指标高并且逐渐上升, 主要的治疗为使用照光治疗(phototherapy) 。照光治疗时使用蓝光灯照射婴儿暴露出的皮肤,使到胆红素更容易排泄。如果有严重黄疸出现,换血治疗可以有效降低危险的高胆红素值。

CONFINEMENT CENTRES & HOMES IN PENANG

To all parents or expectant parents,
Nowadays, doing survey for confinement centres is one of the crucial things in your planning to have babies.
Many mothers are going to confinement centres instead of hiring confinement ladies.
I'm sharing some information on confinement centre contacts, massage service and full moon gift set service here.
As I know I can't get the compilation of these contacts from the Internet.
Hopefully, this information does help in your searching.
You are always welcomed to add any comments (good or bad about any of the centres/services).
I'm aware that many mothers have visited my blog for title of "My Life at De Garden" when doing their searching for confinement centres in the net.
Therefore your opinions/comments might be useful for those viewers.
If you have any new contacts, you may share them here as well.

THE UGLY SIDE OF POS MALAYSIA

This incident happened a few months back.
My parents received this slip from their letter box.
We were curious they supposed to send the item to our door step.
I asked my daddy if they went out that day, but they didn't.
They were at home the entire day not only that the entire week they didn't go out.
This means the personnel from Pos Malaysia did not perform their duty.
They just simply put the slip into the letter box and lazy to go upstairs to send us the item.
They assume we all went out for work or something.
Maybe based on their experience 80% of the recepients will not be at home during office hour weekdays.
Look at the slip, they didn't put the time they were here (my parents' home).
And this will trouble us to collect the item personally at Bayan Lepas Pos Office.
What kind of service they are providing?
This is not the right way.
I'm speechless......

Since this is the first time I'm doing, I've chosen the most simple one.

It's time consuming to build it part by part but it's nice.

SRJK (C) Kwang Hwa - 6M Class of 1990 20th Anniversary (1/5/2010)

It's 20th anniversary!!!
Gosh, time flies!!
We left our primary school for 20 years already.
1st May 2010, we were having our 20th Anniversary Gathering.
The organizer sets 1st May will be our gathering date every year.
So that people will have less excuses to be absent for the gathering (1st May - Labour Day).
We went back to our primary school to have a walk and refresh our lovely childhood stories in the school.
Our school has changed a lot.
There are 2 new huge buildings.
The old classrooms, library, hall, staff rooms have been demolished.
Left only our s0-called new building during our generation (standard 5 & 6 building).
Their new pupils' life have been upgraded.
They have at least 6 fans in a classroom and even fans in their toilets. (unbelievable huh...)
Below are some photos taken on that day.

SRJK (C) Kwang Hwa Logo

Our Old School Hall (has been demolished)

Our school backyard has been changed to a nice field.
Last time was just like an abandoned land with sand only.

Another view from our school backyard.

A view of the old building (last time was our new building) from backyard.
Ground floor is the canteen.

The space for us to line up last time (in front of the canteen) has been changed to a nice garden.

A few artistic arches in the garden.

Our 6M classroom. Our tables are still in used.
But the classroom has been converted to Bilik Kemahiran.

Another pictures of our tables.
Good quality of material can last more than 20 years.

The New School Hall

The school hall consists of 3 badminton courts whereby our old hall had only 1 court.
The shuttle cocks can always hit the ceiling due to the hall was too small.

An eye sore of the school.
This classroom is in the new building but look at the cleanliness.
What a shame for the pupils do not know how to take care of the school property.
Do you notice a small white board on your left.
The board is used for jotting down what & when is submission of the homework.
Serve as a reminder purpose.
Our very very old Cocoa Tree.
She is still there with good condition.

Another view of the old building.

Look at the canteen now.
Nicely renovated with colourful benches and good lighting system.
Last time we were using broken wooden benches.
Our picture taken at the canteen.

At the 2nd floor of the old building.
That floor used to be our standard 5 classrooms.

Our classroom 6M.
Last time we had 6 classes for each standard - M (Merah), K (Kuning), H (Hijau), U (Ungu), B (Biru), J (Jingga).
Now they have another 2 more - E (Emas) & P (Perak)

Our picture taken at 6U due to 6M classroom was locked.
Our friend here was complaining the duster was badly broken and said that he'll donate 1000 duster to the school.
Most probably an empty promise. *laugh*

The wooden rostrum has been replaced by a stainless steel one.

Our picture in front of the main building.

The guys at Eastin Hotel - Swez Brasserie

6M Classmates

Only 3 ladies of 6M attended the gathering.
Hopefully next year's gathering will have more participants!
