Ignition to the torch stand

The reason why the torch attracts public attention is that the ignition of the torch is the climax of the opening ceremony.On the other hand, there are criticisms about the tendency to escalate with each round, as the "device" of ignition becomes complicated due to the show-up, which causes cost increase and trouble.

  • 1992 Barcelona OlympicsThen,Paralympic OfarcheryAthletes ignited a fire arrow at the torch stand at the edge of the stadium.
  • 1994 Lillehammer OlympicsThe ski jumper brought the torch to the stadium.
  • 1998 Nagano OlympicsThen, it became a topic how to ignite the torch stand outside the opening ceremony hall.TwelveIto, who wore a costume with the motif of, climbed up at the elevator in the venue, approached the torch stand and set it on fire.

  • 2012At the London Olympic Games in London, long rods were laid out radially in the center of the stadium, igniting 204 torches, the same number as the number of participating countries that became like colored flowers.Then the torch stood up automatically, and everything stood up vertically to form one huge torch stand.
  • 2014At the Sochi tournament, a torch stand was set up at the medal plaza outside the opening ceremony venue, and when the ignition stand under the torch stand was ignited, the flame rose up the torch stand and the torch was lit.The audience was informed of the ignition by fireworks because they could not see the torch.
  • 2016At the Rio de Janeiro Games, a torch stand for the opening and closing ceremony was set up inside the stadium, and a torch stand for lighting the torch was set up outdoors during the tournament.At the opening ceremony, a small torch stand like a sphere was ignited, and the rising torch stand became a shining sun together with an object that imaged the sun behind, and the production was made to shine light on the venue.

Torch stand

The torch stand and its stanchions are often unique and bold in design, and these are also related to how they are ignited during the opening ceremony. 1992Barcelona OlympicThen, a fire arrow to light the fire heads for the torch standarcheryWas released from. 1996Atlanta OlympicsSo the torch stand was like an artistic scroll adorned with red and gold.Paralympics of the same yearThen, a mountaineer with a paralyzed body climbed a rope hanging from the torch stand and ignited it.

ArchitectToyo ItoAccording to 2016, the same torch has never been used twice, including the Olympic Games held in the same city multiple times.[11].

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has stipulated in its guidelines that the torch stand should be "installed in a place visible to all spectators in the stadium" and "installed so that it can be seen by people outside the stadium during the period". However, there have been exceptions in recent years. 2012London OlympicsThen, after ignition, it was moved to the front of the spectator seats of the stadium, and it was invisible from the outside.[12].

Torch stand of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics

1964 Tokyo OlympicsThen, it will be a prelude to the invitation1958 OfTokyo Asian GamesThe torch stand was reused.

According to the Games Organizing Committee, the condition was that "the delivery time is 3 months and the production cost is 20 yen."It is said that it would take at least eight months to make a similar product, and the cost was one twentieth of the market price, so it was rejected by all major companies.The Organizing Committee was at that timeKawaguchi citylongMotoyoshi OhnoIn response, he requested the production of a torch stand in time for the Asian Games.OhnocastingNominated a master craftsman of making.However, Mannosuke retired from the front line, and Koichi Suzuki, the eldest son of Mannosuke, declined this request, saying that it was "not worth it", but Mannosuke said, "I will do this. Don't think about the profits and losses of your work, "he said.

Mannosuke, who started the production of the torch stand, invited his third son to complete the mold two months later, but an explosion occurred during the hot water bathing work, and Mannosuke died eight days later due to this shock and overwork.[13][14]..However, since the delivery date was less than one month, Bungo made a second torch stand without sleep and worked for two weeks with the cooperation of his brother and the surrounding craftsmen who were taught by Mannosuke. After that, I managed to make it on time[15],National StadiumIt was installed on the upper part of the stand on the south side of.Bungo says, "If I failed, I was going to get hungry and die."

Since this torch stand belongs to the Tokyo Asian Games, the idea of ​​building a new torch stand came up at the Tokyo Olympics.However, I heard the story of Suzuki father and sonIchiro KonoAt the discretion of the Minister in charge of the Olympics, it was officially adopted as the Olympic torch stand and was relocated to the upper part of the back stand that was added during the expansion work for the Olympics.

The torch stand is 2.1m high, has a maximum diameter of 2.1m, and weighs about 4 tons.[16]..Designed and designed by four people, including the designer of the National Stadium, the 4 horizontal lines represent the number of participating countries / regions at the Tokyo Asian Games, and the wave pattern represents the Pacific Ocean.

This torch stand was engraved by Bungo with the characters "Suzuman", which refers to the name of his father, Mannosuke, as the creator's name, and was left until the National Stadium was dismantled.After dismantlingNational StadiumDuring rebuildingGreat East Japan EarthquakeIt will be rented out to the disaster areas. In 2015MiyagiIshinomakiWas lent to Ishinomaki City General Sports Park[17]..The torch stand was exhibited in Ishinomaki City until March 2019, after which it was rented to Iwate and Fukushima prefectures and toured in both prefectures.[16]..Then, I returned to Kawaguchi City, where it was manufactured, from October 10th to March 6th, 2020.Kawaguchi StationEast Exit Kawaguchi Station East Exit Public Square (Cupo-laExhibited at (Plaza)[16][18]..After the exhibition was over, repairs such as replacing the combustion equipment were carried out at a factory in Kanagawa Prefecture, and then it was moved to the front of the east gate of the New National Stadium on June 6 (initially scheduled for April 9). ..The public release is scheduled for July or later.

Infection control

Infection control(Kansenkanri), or medical epidemiology,Medical facilityWithininfectionRefers to efforts aimed at preventing epidemics, with an emphasis on practiceEpidemiologyIs a field.public healthActivities and infection control/medical epidemiology have a lot in common, the former is aimed at society as a whole, while the latter generally deals with problems limited to a specific medical institution (group). Also known as "infection control activities," "infection prevention and management activities," and "infection control activities."Infection control teamIt is counted as one of the basic medical safety management systems of hospitals as an activity that many occupations in the facility work together.

Infection control can be roughly divided into two.

  • Preventive activity
  • Trend measures
    • Investigation activities and countermeasures (eg outbreak countermeasures) that are targeted at outbreaks that have occurred or are suspected to have occurred in a specific medical institution.

Infection control in medical institutions

Occurrence monitoring

Surveillance refers to grasping the occurrence status of infectious diseases on a daily basis. To facilitate comparison between facilities and regions,Bloodstream infection-Urinary-tract infection-Nosocomial pneumoniaThe criteria of the National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance System (NNIS) are used to define the main nosocomial infections such as.

actually,Infection control teamPersonnelPatient chartInvestigate orpatientData is collected by directly observing and determining the presence or absence of symptoms and signs peculiar to infectious diseases. Bacterial laboratory data from the bacteriological laboratory is also an important source of information. In recent years, automation of bacterial laboratory data andElectronic medical recordAutomation is increasing the automation of data extraction, enabling staff to spend more time collecting clinical data. Nosocomial infectionAbout 1/3 of these are preventable[1]Infection surveillance and prevention activities are becoming increasingly important by hospital staff. According to the CDC Nosocomial Infection Control Project (SENIC), by focusing on infection surveillance and prevention activities, the incidence rate of nosocomial infections could be reduced by about 32%.

Preventing the spread of infection

Nosocomial infectionOf each pathogen to prevent transmission and protect health care workers themselves from infectionTransmission routeAccording to(I.e.It is necessary to make up.

Standard precautions centered on hand washing

Vienna OfSemmelweiss(1847) AndDuffel Bag OfOliver W. Holmes(1843), the unique research published byNosocomial infectionRelated to[2].Center for Disease Control and PreventionIn response, the (CDC) reported that "the most important way to prevent the spread of pathogens was effective hand washing".[3].

Handwashing is compulsory at most medical institutions, and in the United States it is not simply a matter of common sense, but is also compulsory by various local and local governments. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards in the United States[4]Requires employers to have hand-washing equipment available at all times, and wash their hands and other skin with soap and water or run mucous membranes under running water if they come into contact with blood or other potentially infectious substances. We are asking you to guarantee that you can wash.

In Japan, “National University Hospital Hospital Infection Control Guidelines” by the National University Hospital Infection Control Council[5]And other guidelines were formulated in 2002.

  • It is recommended to wash your hands and wear gloves before and after touching the patient's blood, body fluids, secretions, excretions, damaged skin and mucous membranes regardless of known infections. Depending on the procedure, masks, goggles, face shields, and gowns are also used.
  • Calls for the prohibition of recaps to avoid punctures and cuts due to needles, scalpels and other sharp instruments, proper placement of medical waste containers for safe disposal immediately after use, and the adoption of needles with safety devices. ..
  • When environmental surfaces such as floors and walls are contaminated, wear gloves and wipe with a paper towel and disinfectant. Store contaminated linen properly until cleaning to prevent contamination of the environment.
  • Patients who may be contaminated with blood should be kept in a private room.

Isolation precautions

In addition, if the causative pathogen is known, it is unique to each.Transmission routeTake appropriate quarantine precautions accordingly.

Air (spray nucleus) infection isolation

  • Healthcare workersN95 maskWear.
  • In the patient's individual room environment, operating room, bronchoscopy room, and respiratory function testing room, forced more than 1 times per hourventilationKeeps negative pressure.To the outside of the hospitalHEPAExhaust through a filter.If structurally impossible, use a portable air purifier with a built-in HEPA filter and ventilate 12 times.
  • Wear a surgical mask when passing through public areas to transfer patients, or wear an exhalation filter during endotracheal intubation.

Isolation of droplet infection

  • A surgical mask is worn for activities within a radius of 1 m from the patient.
  • When separating individual rooms and groups, beds are placed 2m apart.
  • Wear a surgical mask when passing through public areas to transfer patients.

Contact infection isolation

  • Wash hands and wear gloves before and after contact with the patient and contaminated surfaces.
  • Wear gowns where there is potential for full body contact with the patient or contaminated surfaces.
  • Medical equipment used in private rooms should be dedicated as much as possible.


The contact surface of the patient's room and common areas touched by the patient's hands is cleaned by daily wiping. Clean walls and floors that are not touched once a day. In areas where MRSA, VRE, and Clostridium difficile carriers come into contact, daily sterilization is performed by wiping with a quaternary ammonium salt or alcohol. Of reusable medical equipmentdisinfection-SterilizationThe method must be selected according to each possible pathogen.

Personal protective equipment

(Personal protective equipment, PPE) is clothing and equipment worn by medical personnel to protect themselves from danger. What is the danger in the medical field?Viral hepatitis,HIVBlood, saliva, and other body fluids that may contain pathogens such asaerosolExposure to. Personal protective equipment aims to prevent exposure by creating a physical barrier between those infectious agents and health care workers.

In the United States, OSHA standards require health workers to wear protective equipment to protect themselves from bloodborne pathogens when their exposure to blood and other infectious agents is adequately predicted.[6]

Protective equipment: hats, shoe covers, face shields (for mouth-to-mouth breathing)MASKS-goggles・There are types such as. Which combination and how to use is usually determined by the rules set for each medical institution. Most instruments are completelydisinfection-SterilizationConsidering the high cost of doing so, it is designed to be disposable. OSHA standards require that protective equipment be immediately removed and disinfected or disposed of upon leaving a site exposed to infectious agents.[7]

Vaccination of medical staff

Healthcare workers who may be exposed to infectious diseases during work should:vaccineCan be used to protect yourself from infection. Usually usedHepatitis B-influenza-Mixed three(Measles/varicella/rubella)New three kinds of mixture(Diphtheria/Tetanus/Pertussis)Meningococcus-Shingles virusWith vaccines such as these, medical staff and emergency personnel are vaccinated according to facility rules, recommendations, occupations, and individual wishes.In general, the preventive effect of vaccines is not perfect, but side effects are also seen, so vaccination decisions should be made based on sufficient information.[8]

Survey during an epidemic

When infection monitoring finds that the incidence of infections is higher than normal, the infection control team will investigate to determine (1) whether it is a real epidemic or (2) a false epidemic due to contamination of the bacterial testing process. Or (3) determine whether the normal incidence just happened to rise randomly. If it is (1), it will be necessary to investigate the factor that triggered the fashion and eliminate it in order to stop the fashion. It is usually due to lack of correct procedures, but sometimes other factors such as construction work are involved.

Infection control and medical epidemiology training system

There are several educational systems to acquire infection control. The occupational background is often nurses, sometimes clinical laboratory technicians (especially clinical microbiology), and doctors (usually infectious disease physicians). Training courses specialized in infection control and medical epidemiology are offered by the following professional organizations: Those who want to be involved in infection control as a doctor often go through clinical training in the department of infectious diseases.

In the United States,CBIC) Examines the professional background and work experience of health care workers, checks the level of knowledge through standardized departmental examinations, and then licenses infection control personnel. Two years of activity experience is required for application, and renewal of qualification is required every five years.

In the United States, CDC and the American Society for Medical Epidemiology (SHEA) have jointly conducted hospital epidemiology (infection control in hospitals).Our Courses Is held every year, and there is also a course from the Association of Infectious Control Practitioners (APIC).

Infection Control Team and Infection Control Committee

  • The infection control team is the actual work force in a medical institution, and the infection control committee is in charge of managing the infection control team (Fig. 1).
