One of the main joys of the New Year is a festive feast. And it also becomes the cause of two of the most common reasons for hospital admission. Yes, yes, this is not a joke. Unbridled overeating turns not only into a feeling of heaviness and fullness in the stomach.

– Overeating leads to exacerbation of pancreatitis and cholecystitis. During the New Year holidays, emergency cholecystectomies (surgeries to remove the gallbladder) are performed almost as much as during the rest of the year, – the chief physician of the Moscow City Clinical Hospital No. 15 named after VIOM Filatov Valery Vechorko.

Losing your gallbladder due to gluttony is another New Year’s gift. With all the achievements of modern medicine, minimally traumatic (minimally invasive) operations, the future life without this organ will not be the same as before. Let’s not overshadow the mood with a description before the holidays – you can easily find forums on the Internet where patients share their experience after cholecystectomy.

The second popular reason for hospitalizations is alcohol poisoning. What is popularly called “drunk.” Even if the alcohol is of high quality, not fake, its excess can be an unbearable burden on the body.

“Already these days, the staff of our admissions department have noticed an increase in the number of patients admitted for alcohol abuse. Someone started celebrating without waiting for the official holidays, complains Dr. Vechorko. And he gives advice: the only way to eliminate the negative effect of alcohol poisoning at home is gastric lavage. “Drink a few glasses of water at room temperature, the procedure will make you come to your senses. The water will eliminate the toxins on January 1, if they let you know a hangover syndrome and headache, ”explains the doctor.

Also, the five most common reasons why Russians go to the hospital during the New Year holidays are:

– injuries when opening the champagne. If you think that they are only in comedies and jokes, you are wrong. “Many appeals on a festive night come because someone accidentally shot a cork,” warns Valery Vechorko. Damage is fraught with the development of traumatic corneal erosion, severe acute inflammation of the inner membranes of the eye and other unpleasant consequences. Ask your doctor as soon as possible!

– injuries and burns after launching fireworks. If it is not enough for lovers of firecrackers that pets suffer from them, it is worth imagining their own losses from such entertainment;

– injuries from skiing, snowboarding and skating. By themselves, these sports are certainly good for health. Doctors are urging people to be careful not to hurt themselves.


All of the above causes of impaired health on vacation are the work of human hands. And since it depends on us, it is in our hands to prevent such injuries. And this is good news. Be healthy! And take care of yourself and your loved ones.
