Pregnant women need to conduct various examinations and treatment during pregnancy, including regular security checks, such as airport security checks and subway security checks.For pregnant women, metal detectors and X -ray machines in the security check gate may cause harm to the fetus, so pregnant women need to pay special attention.So, do pregnant women pass the security check in advance?Let’s take a closer look.
First of all, we need to clarify that it is completely possible for pregnant women to pass security tests, but we need to pay attention to the types of security check equipment and the details in the security check process.Pregnant women need to pay special attention to the two security inspection equipment of metal detector and X -ray machine.
For metal detectors, pregnant women need to inform security staff in advance their pregnancy and ask for inspection with handheld metal detectors.The handheld metal detector is relatively flexible, which can conduct more fine examinations for pregnant women, and at the same time, the radiation of pregnant women’s fetus is also relatively small.
For X -ray machines, pregnant women need to inform the security staff in advance their pregnancy situation and request to use other inspection methods, such as hand checks or ultrasonic examinations.The X -ray machine will generate radiation during inspection, and radiation has a certain harm to both pregnant women and fetuses. Therefore, pregnant women need to avoid using X -ray machines for inspection.
In addition to the above security inspection equipment, pregnant women need to pay attention to the following points during the security check: avoid security checks in the early stages of pregnancy
Pregnant women in the early stages of pregnancy, especially in the first three months, the organs and tissues of the fetus are developing. At this time, pregnant women need to avoid security tests as much as possible to avoid affecting the fetus.Avoid frequent security checks
Pregnant women need to avoid frequent security checks, because security check equipment will radiate a certain amount of radiation on pregnant women and fetuses. Too frequent security checks will increase the cumulative amount of radiation and have a greater impact on the fetus.Maintain good nutrition and rest
Pregnant women need to maintain good nutrition and rest, which can enhance the body’s resistance and reduce the adverse effects of security tests on the body.
In short, pregnant women need to pay special attention when passing security checks, especially metal detectors and X -ray machines.Pregnant women need to inform the security inspection staff of their pregnancy in advance and ask for inspection or use of other inspection methods with a handheld metal detector.In addition, pregnant women need to avoid security checks in the early stages of pregnancy, avoid frequent security checks, and maintain good nutrition and rest.
