the World is not according to various studies, still not unusual, that the doctor prescribes the medicine, which does not have any effect on the patient of developing the disease. Or even a jar of pills, which do not have any physiological effect on anything.
the Matter has been last in Australia, where 130 general practitioner to responsibility for issues placebo, i.e. placebo, the number of.
the Study, which can be found here (you move to another service), were asked whether they ever ordered their patients a sugar pill as a placebo, which does not have any effect or, alternatively, the right medicine, where they know that it will not affect the patient's acute health problem.
found Out that 39% of respondents had at least once during his career, urged to use the equivalent of sugar pills as "drugs". More often, patients received calls the use of nasal sprays or ihovoiteita.
Three-quarters of the doctors had ordered something the right medicine, which they know, it doesn't help the patient's illness. As many as 40% of doctors said that they do this at least once a month.
These "active placebo" in the most were prescribed antibiotics, vitamins and nutritional supplements. Disease control was offered also a variety of homeopathic medicines.
One of the study authors, Sydney university psychology associate professor Ben Colagiuri to remind, that the placebo who prescribe only in Australia.Whether the situation is similar in Finland?
in Finland, a similar study is not done, but medical ethics associate professor Pekka Louhiala from the university of Helsinki is convinced that placebo drugs are we already history.
Yet in the 1990s in Finland, even were produced and sold in the Placebo-name pills. They are found usually health centers medicine cabinets. Pills for example to calm down in the hospital ward of sleepless elderly, when their symptoms do not treat the mind of demanded the doctor called to the scene. Medicinal product license expired in the mid-90s.
in Finland Today, it is considered that pure placebo prescribing is clearly unethical, Louhiala said. A completely unknown phenomenon is not the case, he adds.
– Doctors may prescribe a medicine uncertain about it, whether it has a physiological effect on the patient or not.
Louhiala consider also the example of a situation where a patient asks the doctor, is it possible to use something specific supplement. In this case, the doctor may himself think, that hardly it a benefit, but not harm, and give the patient the permission to use it.
Australian investigators think the placebo who doesn't like outright fighting, but they have their own role in their medical care. For example, vilustumiset and stomach diseases fading, often at their own pace, and recovery may not be able to accelerate the medicines. Lumelääkkeet, however, can ease the pain of feeling.
Louhiala sees things differently. For example, antibiotic prescribing when the doctor is sure that it is virus infection, it is unequivocally wrong treatment.
a Little the same is true for homeopathic preparations, which many of the central european doctor may offer.

mine industry, according to the world studies involves a wide range of problems. Part of it is what defines the placebo be.
the Term "placebo" is not often defined at all. In some studies it is defined, but the exceedingly broad, giving the definitions can be very far from what placebo generally understood.
a jumble of tell mine area, for example nose sprays and ihorasva the mention of an australian study.
Finland winter is such that almost everyone would benefit from them. It is questionable to appoint their placebo into, he said.
Plasebojen use has been studied in Australia, but in many other countries too. They have been interpreted as the number of doctors frequently either "sugar pills", or drugs, with no help.
Louhiala surprised, however, that, for example, vitamins or a regular pain medicine may be decreased in the placebo as.
the Uk study, while the placebo be also calculated a "positive suggestion you". This ended up reviews that 97% of british doctors at least once during their career offered to patients on placebo. Mine industry view, the surprising study is mainly due to the fact that three per cent of doctors did not use in their work the patient encouragement.
in Medicine we often talk about the placebo effect, which means that medicines to improve the patient's condition, even though it does not have any active substance. That is, if the patient gets sugar pill, but believes it to be the right medicine, can her condition improve.
mine industry view, the placebo effect doesn't word particularly well with it, what is it – the doctor and the patient a good treatment relationship. More appropriate terms would be, in his opinion, the treatment or the care effect.
whether the placebos to treat pain effectively, and why they seem to act the part of the people? Does placebo believe, in order for it to help? What do you lose positive effect when the subjects heard that they received only placebo? T: Windfall films/BBC.Subscribe Yle newsletters!
