These cards contained by system analysis of consequences of the sustained polytrauma on the systems and organs respectively to the body mass index meaning. In general, treatment and nutrition of such patients was complex and included applying of the diet therapy (a low-calorie diet with enough protein, vitamins and low levels of animal fats and carbohydrates, especially easily digestible), pharmacological therapy (antibiotics, mucolytics, solvents) as well as therapeutic exercise, which played almost dominant role. In particular, therapeutic massage was prescribed for improvement of general body tone, activation of peripheral circulation and lymph flow, oxidation-reduction and metabolic processes, retroaction to the impaired motor-evacuation function of the large intestine, eliminating fatigue and increasing muscle tone and functioning.
