Bariatric Solutions For Severe Obesity
For many people exercises and routine diets do not work, and they are unable to achieve any significant weight loss. Their efforts to lose weight are hindered by health problems such as hypertension, arthritis, hypertension, thyroid dysfunction and respiratory problems. Obesity is a problem that can have an adverse effect on an individual’s health and may reduce his/her life expectancy. The number of obese people is on the rise today and taking into consideration our fast-paced lifestyle this number is expected to rise in the coming years. If you have been finding it difficult to lose weight and have exhausted all weight loss methods, bariatric solutions may be the answer. Bariatric is a branch of medicine that offers effective and long term solutions to morbidly obese people.
Most of the hospitals that specialize in providing comprehensive and individualized bariatric solutions to meet their patient’s needs use bariatric EMR software. This software helps them record details of the patient’s medical history, medication prescribed, tests that are conducted and their results, any allergies and adverse reactions he/she may have to drugs, and weight and other medical conditions.
Bariatric EMR software is also used in clinics where the focus is on options such as offering dietary counseling to the patient along with regular monitoring and medication. This software is extremely user-friendly and health care professionals are able to enter detailed information about the patient’s condition in the system from anywhere. The patient’s primary physician is aware of any changes made to these details. Test results can be uploaded from any location and it becomes easier for the healthcare professionals and physicians to view them before they recommend a course of treatment. In fact some software makes it extremely convenient for the patient to enter their personal details without actually having to go through the clinic’s admin system.
For patients considering bariatric surgery it is important to keep in mind that this weight loss procedure is not just a cosmetic procedure. The focus or ultimate goal of any bariatric surgery is to reduce or eliminate problems that are related to obesity. Surgery is recommended only when your doctor is convinced that non-surgical approaches have not been able to help you reduce weight. Patients also need to be willing to adopt a radically different lifestyle where the focus is primarily on exercise and dietary restrictions. There is also a need to make a commitment to long term treatment and follow-ups.
