Since the beginning of this year, 61,166 residents of Novgorod have been examined within the framework of medical examinations and preventive examinations. Such data were provided yesterday by the regional Ministry of Health at a meeting of the Novgorod branch of the Russian Scientific Medical Society of Therapists.
Risk factors for the development of chronic non-communicable diseases were identified in 63% of the surveyed residents of Novgorod. In 7% of cases, these were diseases of the circulatory system, as well as: 179 cases of diabetes mellitus, 15 cases of malignant neoplasms, of which 9 were detected at an early stage.
Timely passing of preventive examinations and medical examinations allows you to reduce risk factors for the development of chronic diseases, adjust treatment and, if necessary, hospitalize the patient in a specialized hospital or regional vascular center.
It was decided that it is necessary to increase the dispensary group of patients with newly discovered diseases.
“We will increase the coverage of the population with dispensation and dispensation. We will also focus on the quality of examinations,” said Maria Pavlova, chief freelance therapist of the Ministry of Health of the Novgorod region.
“In previous years, the number of medical examinations across the country has decreased due to the coronavirus pandemic. But today it is important not only to resume this work, but also to increase the pace,” said Valery Yakovlev, Minister of Health of the Novgorod Region.
