The discipline development of pediatric allergy and otolaryngology head and neck surgery was discussed. At the meeting, the pediatric allergy Committee of China maternal and child health association was approved to be established. The chairman of the committee was Professor Zhang Jianji, director of Otorhinolaryngology, Shandong maternal and Child Health Hospital Affiliated to Shandong University.

, “the incidence rate of children’s allergic diseases is high. It has become one of the three chronic diseases of children. It has become a public health problem of social concern. It affects the quality of life of children. Severe systemic allergy can lead to shock and endanger life. It is very necessary to strengthen preventive health care and treatment.” Zhang Jianji said at the founding meeting that “after the establishment of the Special Committee on child allergy, it will carry out projects, research and training related to child allergy, especially adhere to the principle of facing the grassroots and poor and remote areas, and provide relevant professional and technical training for maternal and child health workers and medical and health care institutions in the central and western regions and grass-roots level To promote the appropriate technology for the prevention and control of common allergic diseases in children, train and train relevant professionals, so as to make contributions to improving the skills of professionals, promoting the standardized implementation of prevention and control of children’s allergic diseases and the discipline construction. ” < / P > < p > “China’s allergy discipline is a young and emerging discipline, and its strength is relatively weak. Moreover, there are too few allergy specialists, and the number of doctors is far from meeting the clinical needs.” Xu Zhengmin pointed out that “the establishment of the children’s allergy professional committee can build an academic platform for cooperation, exchange and training for professionals engaged in children’s Otolaryngology, children’s respiratory department, children’s dermatology and other disciplines related to allergic diseases, so as to widely promote new technologies and methods, develop innovation, and popularize science. Of course, the development of the discipline is inseparable from the support of enterprises. Bayer has been actively supporting the disciplinary development and multi-disciplinary academic exchanges in the field of children’s allergy in China, and has worked with all sectors of the community to jointly explore the prevention and treatment of allergic diseases, sink resources, help improve the standard treatment level of primary doctors, and jointly strengthen and promote public health education. ” Allergic disease, also known as allergic disease, is an abnormal body immune response caused by harmless substances. It can occur in many parts of the body, such as nose, skin, eyes, lower respiratory tract and gastrointestinal tract.

with the changing environment and the improvement of living standards, the incidence rate of allergic diseases, especially children’s allergic diseases has been increasing year by year. “Allergic diseases not only affect the quality of life of children, even life-threatening, but also a considerable number of children’s allergic diseases have not been standardized, timely treatment, which is likely to lead to a part of allergic diseases in children’s conditions continue to aggravate, causing more severe impact on children. For example, children with allergic rhinitis, if not timely and effective control, some will further develop into asthma, severe asthma attacks may endanger the lives of children. This will undoubtedly increase the burden on families and the whole country. ” Zhang Jianji said.

incidence rate of allergic rhinitis is the most worrying among many allergic diseases in children. Professor Yao Hongbing, vice chairman of the special committee and chairman of the pediatric otolaryngology head and neck surgery branch of the Asia Pacific Medical and biological immunology society, pointed out that “compared with other allergic diseases, AR has a more profound impact on growing children. It will not only interfere with children’s school and extracurricular activities, affect sleep, lead to drowsiness and inattention, and significantly reduce their quality of life It can also lead to children’s irritability, carelessness, destructiveness, absence from class, impact on test scores and other complications < p > < p > in March last year, China’s first clinical guideline on the diagnosis and treatment of children’s allergic rhinitis clinical practice guidelines was released, which provides a new reference and implementation standard for doctors in the treatment of children’s AR, and is promoting the standardization of clinical management of children’s AR in China. < p > < p > based on the guidelines, drug therapy is an important treatment for children with AR. “The development of children’s body organs is still immature, so special attention should be paid to the safety of medication in drug treatment. At the same time, drug dosage forms suitable for children should be selected to improve the treatment compliance of children.” Yao Hongbing said, “the second generation of antihistamines are the first-line drugs for the clinical treatment of allergic rhinitis in children. For example, loratadine is a classic second-generation oral antihistamine drug. It takes effect quickly in 30 minutes and takes effect once a day. It has no drowsiness effect. Syrup dosage form is especially suitable for children patients.” < / P > < p > in order to achieve good therapeutic effect, it also depends on the patients’ understanding of their diseases. “In addition to the treatment guidelines for AR, medical workers also need to combine with the specific situation to develop appropriate local ar prevention and control measures, strengthen medical knowledge education for parents of children, improve public awareness of the disease, seek medical treatment in time, and better cooperate with doctors, so as to effectively relieve children’s disease distress.” Yao Hongbing pointed out.
