What is "ineffective medical care"? Many operations may not be performed, and many drugs may not be taken.

People are most afraid of disease, not only suffering from physical pain, but also bearing expensive treatment costs. People receive treatment immediately after getting sick, but some unscrupulous clinics recommend expensive treatment methods and drugs to patients in order to make huge profits, so that small diseases cost a lot of money and the treatment effect is not very satisfactory.

Therefore, when patients treat diseases, they should avoid ineffective medical treatment, and have a pair of eyes to identify them.

According to relevant statistics, 47.4% of netizens in China have encountered the problem of ineffective medical care. Strictly speaking, ineffective medical treatment, that is, medical behavior, has no meaning to patients, or is not helpful to the improvement of their condition.

For example, some drugs can be cured by taking medicine, but doctors still recommend patients to do various tests and treatments; Or the illness is very serious, the patient is weak, and the doctor still adopts advanced or expensive medical means, which not only increases the pain suffered by the patient, but also leads to poor treatment effect, and eventually leads to both human and financial resources, and also leads to waste of medical resources.

1. Advanced cancer

Modern medicine is still unable to conquer cancer, especially in the late stage of cancer. Excessive emphasis on radical cure of cancer or complete killing of cancer cells will increase the physical, mental and economic pressure of patients, making them weaker and even life-threatening. The principle of advanced cancer treatment is to relieve pain and improve the quality of life, so we can’t operate blindly.

2. Lumbar disc herniation

In fact, the lumbar spine has a strong ability of self-healing and recovery. Immune cells and phagocytic system in the body can identify the position of lumbar disc herniation, secrete a lot of enzymes to dissolve it, and rely on the ability of healing and recovery to alleviate it. Most lumbar disc herniation does not require additional surgery. According to the survey, 13.25% of the patients got worse after the operation.

3. Pulmonary nodules

Some patients were diagnosed as pulmonary nodules during physical examination, and most of them were benign. After being diagnosed with pulmonary nodules, there is no need to worry too much, and further pathological examination is needed to assess the risk of cancer. If it is a benign pulmonary nodule without special treatment, just go to the hospital for low-dose spiral CT screening on a regular basis.

4, frequent infusion

Many people choose infusion because it can quickly alleviate their illness. However, infusion is equivalent to minor surgery, and excessive infusion will bring adverse reactions to the body and affect the development of various tissues and cells. Therefore, there is no need for infusion when it is not necessary, and a regular hospital should be chosen when infusion is necessary.

1. Paracetamol

As long as there is low back pain, people will take acetaminophen as soon as possible, such as paracetamol, which can relieve the pain quickly. However, if paracetamol can’t relieve acute low back pain and there is no significant spinal lesion, it may have side effects after taking the medicine.

2. Opioid drugs

Some patients take opioid analgesics for a long time after surgery to relieve pain, but excessive use of such drugs can harm their physical and mental health.

3. Aspirin

Some patients took aspirin before operation. However, studies have shown that taking aspirin will not affect the mortality rate and the incidence of nonfatal myocardial infarction. On the contrary, it will cause massive bleeding because of taking a lot of aspirin every day.


Ineffective medical treatment not only can’t solve the disease, but also affects patients’ physical and mental health, increases economic pressure, wastes medical resources and reduces patients’ trust in doctors. Every doctor should pay attention to medical ethics and fully consider the patient’s pathogenic needs and medical technology level.
