COVID-19: Systematic treatment of people with pre-existing conditions
It has long been known that infections with the new Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 run in vorerkrankten patients, in many cases, far more severe than in previously Healthy people. Certain pre-existing conditions are apparently particularly dangerous. Experts point out, to protect people from risk groups and to treat them systematically.
The novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 spreads further and further. Although the infections are in many cases mild, but most of all people from certain risk groups can become seriously ill. It is important to protect these people and treat them in the event of a COVID-19-disease systematically.
Targeted supply of co-morbidities is required
As the Institute for work and technology (IAT/ Westphalian University of applied Sciences) in a recent communication, writes, endangered COVID-19 affected people in very varying degrees. Based solely on the age of the patients is less important than Comorbidities that increase with age often.
Therefore, a targeted supply of co-morbidities is to cope with the pandemic related challenges. Thus, severe cases of COVID can be dominated by 19 and intensive medical care is significantly better and reduced.
On health, suggest researchers from the Institute for work and technology (IAT/ Westphalian University of applied Sciences).
Increased risk for severe courses of the disease
The Virus is still relatively new and knowledge about characteristics and histories, yet not in all areas is sufficiently secured. Nevertheless, several evaluations of the courses of the disease from affected patients and patients are now available.
In severe disease, show gradients, in particular, in the case of persons with pre-existing conditions. At COVID-19 ill persons who were already suffering from chronic respiratory diseases (COPD), are about 6-fold more severe courses of the disease. These patients are treated for up to 10-fold more often in intensive care.
In people with high blood pressure (about 2.5-fold), Diabetes (approximately 3-fold), heart disease (approximately 3-fold) or stroke (around 4-fold) is gradients, the risk of severe disease are also much higher than in other patients.
In addition, several risk factors come together in many cases.
At-risk groups to protect the good care offerings
Therefore, it is particularly important to ensure that in times of Corona-pandemic for patients with one or more of these diseases are optimally supplied. Just the right setting with the medicines, but also healthy nutrition and physical activities are not part of.
It is important to protect people from these risk groups due to a good supply of deals. However, it is not often observed the opposite, as Concerned to go out of fear of infection enough to their Doctors or Physicians and the medical staff is partially used.
This double threat of high risk and limited care options must be overcome by adequate offers.
Controllable risks to reduce
The digitization can help a lot. The use of video office hours was much easier. In addition, studies show that the observation and treatment of the major symptoms of telemedicine can lead to a significant improvement of the supply.
So, for example, can be used in people who suffer from COPD, the oxygen saturation in the blood and the development of the respiratory volume of tele-medically monitored, medication, nutrition and physical activities designed and the patients are trained. Also in the case of cardiac or Stroke patients this is possible.
Since the Virus will be even longer, it must be an integral part of the management, controllable risks for severe disease, intensive care and respiratory needs medical treatment to reduce or even death.
For medical services need to be expanded and used according to the IAT tele. (ad)
