The corona virus is continuously catching people in the capital city of India, but this time the condition of the people is getting more serious than before. Especially oxygen consumption is being seen in Covid patients. Experts, however, believe that as much oxygen was needed in Corona’s first wave.
In the second wave of Corona, there is an equal need, but this time the number of patients is more than the first, so people are facing more problems. Apart from this, patients stopping their chronic disease, especially medicines for diseases like BP and diabetes, is one of the major reasons for the decrease in oxygen level. In such a situation, keep taking your old medicines.
Number of Positive Cases has increased
HOD Dr. of KGMU’s Department of Respiratory Medicine. Suryakant says that the need for oxygen support is coming in the same way as the last time. It is just that this time there are more cases, in which the number of serious patients has also become more than before. This time 5 to 6 thousand patients are being seen in the capital. Even today, five percent serious patients are being seen as before, because the positivity is high, so the problem is being seen more.
Lie on your stomach for about 16 hours
Dr. Suryakant says that if there is a corona infection, two things should always be kept in mind, first of all, as soon as the oxygen level of a patient starts falling, he should immediately lie on his stomach. The patient should lie on the abdomen for about 16 hours in 24 hours. This will give comfort. Do not lie down on the stomach immediately after eating food. This thing has to be kept in mind. The food should be laid after staying for some time after eating. Apart from this, you can also lie on the right and left sides.
Lying down directly causes oxygen
In fact, oxygen level is reduced by straight lying down while lying on the right and left side increases the oxygen level, but lying upside down or on the stomach increases the oxygen level the most. People should take special care of this matter.
By 90 medicine and reverse lying, the level will be fine
If someone’s oxygen level has fallen below 90, then hospital will have to be admitted. At the same time, only treatment is possible, but if it is up to 90, do not panic. If below 94, you should be a little worried, but if you go below 90, you should see hospitalization. If the oxygen level goes up to 90 then it is cured only by drugs and vice versa.
Keep control of other diseases also
Dr. Suryakant says that people focus their attention on the corona, due to which people forget to give BP or sugar medicine to the patient. Due to this, sugar or BP are not kept under control, while other diseases should be kept under control because if other things remain uncontrolled, then the oxygen level will fall down, so do not forget to take medicines of other diseases along with treatment of corona.
Keep the covid patient lying on the stomach for at least 16 hours. This increases the oxygen level. Apart from this, keep taking medicines for other diseases because even if BP or sugar are uncontrolled, oxygen is low.
