(From State Board of Health.)
During the winter and spring
months of 1928 the prevalence of
infantile paralysis was greater in
the United States than usual al
though the number of cases was
not large. Since about the first of
June there has been an increase
throughout the country. There has
been an increasing number of cases
in this state. Now is the time to
be on the watch for early cases
which usually forerun an epidemic.
This is the most crucial period in
the development of epidemic condi
tions with this disease.
The only safeguard is eternal vig
ilance on the part of health officials,
the medical profession, nurses and
parents. Responsibility for the
safety of their children rests prin
cipally on the parents.- Do not try
to run away from infantile paraly
sis or poliomyelitis, as it is called,
after the epidemic begins. Remain
at home and guard the children
against fatigue and indiscretions
of diet Give them a little extra
rest during the day and watch their
temperatures. Tq keep the children
in their own yards during an epi
demic is the only safeguard against
infantile paralysis as there is no
prophylactic for the disease.
Since we do not definitely know
how this disease is transmitted the
safe rule is to isolate all who are ill,
especially children, until a diagno
sis shows that they are suffering
from a non-communicable disease.
All cases of infantile paralysis
should be isolated as completely as
possible in a clean bare room that
is well screened to keep out insects.
Only the necessary attendant should
bo allowed to come in contact with
the case. All discharges should be
disinfected. Eating utensils and
soiled clothing should be boiled.
During the acute stage the pa
tient hould be kept quiet Joints
will not stiffen and hopeless wast
ing will not occur during this stage.
Rest gives the damaged cord the
best chance to repair, and it is
sometimes necessary to apply a
plaster cast or other immobilizing
device. The hospitilization of in
fantile paralysis cases insures com
plete rest as well as the proper iso
lation and quarantine that is neces
sary. When the acute stage is over
muscle training should begin. De
formity can be prevented by keep
ing the feet at right angles to the
legs to avoid the most common de
formity, a dropped foot Manipula
tion during the acute stage may
increase the amount of disability
and in some cases has produced in
curable deformities. On the other
hand, muscle training and other
constructive measures have accom
plished results which are just short
of miraculous. Expert care is need
ed more in infantile paralysis than
in any other disease. Some cases
get well without any treatment
However, it is the experience of
crippied children hospitals that
most of the almost hopelessly de
formed cases have been treated
without any regard for the true
pathology of this disease.
The only way of eradicating con
tagious abortion in dairy herds is
through separating those showing
reaction to the test, followed by
cleaning and disinfecting the barn,
then replacing with abortion-free
females and finally testing the herd
frequently to catch any new infec
tion. The entire process of freeing
the experiment station herd at Cor
vallis of this disease is described in
a new bulletin, No. 232.
