It seems that visiting beaches is being used in Spain to help treat Corona patients, and in a strange experiment, a medical team at Hospital Del Mar – Hospital of the Seas – in Barcelona, Spain, began experiments to test whether cruises for Corona patients and their enjoyment of the sunshine on the beach may It helps treat them, improve their immunity and their ability to fight the coronavirus.
In one of those experiments, a doctor accompanied by 3 nurses placed a patient named Francisco Espana after spending about two months in the hospital’s intensive care unit, on a private bed with medical respirators in front of the sea, according to Al-Arabiya.
The patient closed his eyes for a short time and absorbed as much sunlight as possible, asserting that it was “one of the best days he remembers” for many months.
Commenting on that attempt to help epidemic patients, Dr. Judith Marin explained that it is part of the “humanization” program for intensive care units that the team was trying for two years before the emerging virus hit Spain.
It also said that the strict isolation protocols that had to be adopted since mid-March had delayed months of efforts to integrate ICU patients with specialists in the rest of the hospital.
And she indicated that with the spread of infection in April and the increase of infected people, we backed away from all this wonderful work that we were doing in the field of curative care.
“We were suddenly going back to the old customs of keeping relatives away from their loved ones … It was really difficult to report bad news over a phone call,” she added. 10 minutes, but since the program was restarted, doctors said that even 10 minutes on the beach seemed to improve the patient’s condition and morale, which ultimately reflected positively on his health.
However, the Spanish team wants to document this anecdotal evidence even further, to see if such foreign trips can help in the medium and long term recovery of Corona patients.
