Nursing Interventions of Children with Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis

Na Yang


This paper aims to investigate the clinical features and nursing interventions of children with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). By randomly selecting the children with ADEM treated in our hospital as the study subjects, the relevant clinical data of these patients was analysed and then their clinical characteristics were compared. According to the randomized table method, the patients were divided into control group and study group, where the control group was given routine nursing care, while the study group was given comprehensive care, so as to compare and analyse the effects of the two groups. The results show that the incidence of ADEM in children has no significant difference in the four seasons, and the predisposing factors are related to respiratory tract infection, viral infection, gastrointestinal tract infection and vaccination. In terms of clinical typing, it includes brain type and cerebrospinal type. The clinical manifestations of ADEM are fever, limb spasms, and convulsions. Therefore, the clinical symptoms of ADEM are rather clear, and the timely symptomatic treatment and assisted effective nursing intervention can improve the therapeutic effect.
