Abstract
Lorsqu’une personne a de la difficulté à avaler les liquides clairs, il y a un risque que du liquide entre dans ses voies respiratoires plutôt que d’aller dans l’estomac. On appelle ce phénomène l’aspiration et cela se produit lorsque de la nourriture ou du liquide « passe dans le mauvais tuyau ». L’aspiration peut augmenter les risques de pneumonie (infection des poumons). Elle peut aussi être très désagréable et faire tousser. Lorsqu’on a un problème de déglutition (difficulté à avaler), il peut être difficile de boire une quantité suffisante de liquides épais pour rester hydraté. Pour vous assurer de boire assez de liquides, vous pourriez peut être boire de l’eau entre les repas. Ce dépliant donne des conseils pour boire de l’eau de façon sécuritaire entre les repas et réduire les risques d’étouffement.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Drinking Water Between Meals" pamphlet 1159. Some people have problems swallowing thin liquids. This means that some liquids may go into their airway instead of their stomach. This is called aspiration. Aspiration is the word used when food or drink goes ‘down the wrong way’. Sometimes aspiration can increase the chance of getting pneumonia (lung infection). It can also be very unpleasant and cause coughing. It may be hard to drink enough thick liquids to stay hydrated. To make sure you get enough liquids, you may be able to drink water between meals. This pamphlet gives guidelines for drinking water safely between meals for people with swallowing problems so that there is less chance of choking.

Abstract
This guide is for patients that are being admitted to the Victoria General Hospital for open thoracotomy pulmonary resection surgery for lung cancer treatment. Your surgeon will make a surgical cut between two ribs. The cut will go from the front of your chest wall to your back, passing just underneath your armpit. These ribs will be separated. Your lung on this side will be deflated so that air will not move in and out of it during surgery. Your surgeon may not know how much of your lung needs to be removed until your chest is open and the lung can be seen. After surgery, one or more drainage tubes (chest tubes) will be placed into your chest area to drain out fluids that build up. After the surgery on your lung, your surgeon will close the ribs, muscles, and skin with stitches. The health care team has put together a guide called a Clinical Pathway so you will know what will happen to you before surgery and on a day-to-day basis after surgery. A Clinical Pathway is a general guideline about your care.

This pamphlet is a French translation of “Infection Prevention and Control" pamphlet 1441. The role of the Infection Prevention and Control team is to help other health care providers prevent and control infections by: tracking infections, promoting good hand hygiene and other infection control practices, managing an outbreak or outbreaks, and providing education to all health care providers and volunteers. Infection prevention and control is an important part of patient safety. About one in nine patients will get an infection while in hospital. Common infections may include C. difficile diarrhea, pneumonia (a lung infection), bladder infections and wound infections. This pamphlet explains what you should expect your health care team to do to help prevent infection and what you and your visitors can do to help prevent infection.
