Three important weapons to deal with, I would like to choose.

  1. Pulse oximeter to measure the oxygen saturation level from the fingertip. For screening whether COVID-19 patients Have pneumonia occurred or have ARVs started in conjunction with primary hospital care? And if so, is it necessary to administer steroids to reduce the inflammatory reaction in the body?
  2. Steroid drugs, either dexamethasone or prednisolone, are used early on in the early stages of COVID pneumonia (5 days after symptoms or after diagnosis) and later (7-14 days). Reduce the number of critically severe pneumonia patients (The numbers of seriously ill patients look a lot because the overall number of patients No, this drug is ineffective)
  3. High-flow nasal cannula Reduce and slow the progression of pneumonia, not so severe that a ventilator is required. It must be applied early for good results in a 2v3 patient bed during step up treatment and continued to be used in a 3v2 patient bed during step down disease. treatment)
