When blood clots normally, hemorrhages are largely prevented and work and anxiety of the surgeon are decreased. Blood clotting involves numerous intricate chemical processes requiring many nutrients, the most important being calcium and vitamins C, E, and K. Because vitamin K is produced by intestinal bacteria, it is rarely lacking except when the bacteria have been destroyed by oral antibiotics or when bile fails to reach the intestine, conditions easily rectified by taking yogurt or acidophilus milk, bile tablets, and lecithin.
Calcium and vitamins C and E, however, are frequently under supplied. Vitamin E "constantly and quickly" shortens the clotting time of bleeders and, provided it is taken continuously, has even prevented hemorrhaging in hemophiliacs studied over a period of many years.
When shock cannot be treated quickly, irreversible damage often occurs, which may result in death. The reaction to experimental shock can be made worse by deficiencies
of a variety of nutrients, whereas adequately fed animals withstand shock well. Similarly, persons who are malnourished, especially those who have been on low-protein diets, are particularly susceptible to shock. As another form of stress, it causes the amount of vitamin C and most of the B vitamins in the blood to fall drastically; and much harm can be prevented if an injection of these vitamins can be given immediately or be taken before surgery. In cases where shock has been brought on by acute hemorrhage, damage done by the decreased oxygen supply to the tissues can be considerably alleviated by giving 3,000 milligrams of vitamin C and 300 units or more of vitamin E as quickly as possible.
All the nutrients essential for healing after surgery are equally necessary following accidents. The diet should meet the demands of stress, prevent unsightly scars, knit broken bones, keep kidney stones from forming, and build blood to replace that lost.
In cases where a poison has been swallowed, pantothenic acid, vitamin ~, and huge amounts of vitamin C, needed for detoxifying purposes, should be given around the clock. Generous amounts of vitamin E and a high-protein diet containing 6 or more egg yolks daily can also help the liver detoxify the poison and prevent liver damage. If food cannot be held on the stomach, oil and vitamins should be applied to the skin.
When prolonged unconsciousness follows an accident, patients can receive an adequate diet by tube feeding. At a physician's request, I prepared tube feedings for a severely malnourished 12-year-old boy who was unconscious following a car accident. They consisted of fresh and powdered milk, yeast, desiccated liver, wheat germ, egg yolks, vegetable oils, lecithin, frozen undiluted orange juice, 1 tablespoon of cod-liver oil, a solution of vitamin C and pantothenic acid, and the contents of several vitamin-E capsules. Although the child remained unconscious for more than two weeks, during this period his face and body filled out, his color improved, and the texture of his skin and hair changed remarkably. He later made a rapid recovery. Because of shortage of help, physicians are often glad to have such highly nutritious feedings prepared at home and brought to the hospital.
The excruciating pain of bums appears to result from a lack of oxygen, the supply of which is cut off the minute blood vessels are seared; at the same time, the consumption of oxygen is tremendously increased. When vitamin-E capsules are pierced with a needle and their contents immediately squeezed over the burned area, the pain is dulled and often disappears. More vitamin E should be applied several times daily. If the patient can stand to have the burned surface touched, vitamin-E ointment may be used. PABA ointment also relieves the pain quickly after mild bums, but its effectiveness on severe burns is not known. My conviction is that at least 200 units of vitamin E and 300 milligrams of PABA should be taken after each meal, starting immediately. The PABA may be discontinued when pain is gone, but the vitamin E should be taken until long after healing is complete.
Because huge amounts of toxic breakdown products from damaged tissues are released into the blood, far larger quantities of vitamin C are needed after burns than following other injuries. When a half teaspoon or more of a solution of vitamin C, pantothenic acid, other B vitamins, and calcium gluconate, which dissolves readily in water, is given every hour to a severely burned patient for a few days, pain is far less intense and recovery more rapid.
The loss of nutrients in the tissue fluids oozing from the surface of large burns can cause death or quickly produce advanced malnutrition even in a previously well-nourished person. Hundreds of studies have emphasized that 400 grams or more of protein are needed daily to replace the tremendous losses, though huge amounts of all nutrients that dissolve in water--vitamin C, the B vitamins, salt, iodine, potassium, and magnesium--are equally needed. Simultaneously the extreme stress of a severe burn increases all body requirements.
It is not easy. Because of nausea, lack of appetite, and extremely high nutritional requirements, obtaining an adequate diet after surgery, a burn, or an accident is not easy.
Persons who know the principles of emergency feeding and apply them the best they can, however, are usually rewarded by rapid healing and at times by spectacular and unexpected recovery.
