Dr. Nithipat introduces 3 essential weapons to fight the new wave of COVID This battle is enormous. Reduced number of new infected cases But the patient is seriously ill More deaths You need to manage your bed effectively.
Assoc. Prof. Nitiphat Chearakul, Head of Department of Respiratory System and Tuberculosis Department of Internal Medicine Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital Mahidol University Posted via Facebook “Nitiphat Jearakun“Receive the battle of the huge COVID crisis Although the number of new cases is slowly declining, the number of critically ill The patient uses a ventilator And the patient died. Will increase for a long time, which Dr. Nithipat suggested 3 important weapons to fight the new wave of COVID, stating
“03: 30 Sleep is one of man’s vital weapons in life. It is controlled very little. Three channels were obtained, one of which was an accidental automatic cycle. Of each person’s body, the second is intentionally guarded by pita, such as those near the exam.
More than half a month ago Where I sleep less Whereby the performance During the day it was the same (maybe battered when ordering some subordinates), and so was the last night.
This battle is enormous. The enemy piles up in front of him. Faster than the previous two battles. The first commander looked very inexperienced, allowing the enemy to infiltrate. And unable to awaken The front line warriors were good enough. Heavy weapon to control People’s Defender Not helping to increase the enemy With spread of infection But only raised Than to be used Was barely in time
Now a new army has begun to be organized. Place past frustrations temporarily A week from now If all parties cooperate fully To make new patients less daily There was a light in front of it. When he saw the way of salvation From a big loss
But as predicted Although the number of new cases is slowly declining, the number of critically ill Patients using a ventilator And the patient died. Will increase for a while
One strategy to tackle this time is to try to expand the potential of the hospital bed. Together with a circulation system Patients get in and get out of the hospital quickly. And circulate the patient’s bed Hospitalized According to the severity To be effective
Another option is to use a powerful weapon at the right time and at the right time. Three important weapons to deal with, I would like to choose.
1. Pulse oximeter To measure the oxygen saturation level from the fingertips for screening that COVID-19 patients Has pneumonia occurred or not? To start taking antiviral drugs Together with care in the main hospital And if there is, then it is necessary to give steroid medication To reduce the inflammatory reaction in the body or not
2. Steroid medicine Either dexamethasone or prednisolone, this ripple effect doctors start using early. When the COVID pneumonia begins Both in the first phase (5 days after symptoms Or after detection of infection) and later (7-14 days) help the number of severe pneumonia cases Down to the critical stage (the number of seriously ill patients looks a lot Because of the large number of patients overall No, this drug is ineffective)
3. High-flow nasal cannula The high flow oxygen booster reduces and slows the progression of pneumonia, not so severe that a ventilator is required. You must use it quickly. For good treatment results In patient beds of 2 to 3 levels during step up treatment and used continuously. In a patient’s bed level 3 on 2 during step down treatment.
Encourage Medical personnel Who still have to be exhausted for a long time, who knows that makes us tired Please remember And then come to check the bill together After this wave of battle “
