Natalia SANDROVICH, “FACTS”
Even some doctors sometimes miss a pneumonia caused by a virus, attributing symptoms to the manifestations of SARS, explains pulmonologist, thoracic surgeon, associate Professor of Department of surgery № 1 of Kyiv medical University, candidate of medical Sciences Evgeny Simonet. — At an early stage the clinical picture is really similar: high fever, slight cough or even pokalyvanie, weakness, sweating. But, if the patient complains of dyspnea, the physician should suspect the development of pneumonia.
And to send an x-ray?
— It is better for a CT scan. Today, many are informative CT with minimum radiation exposure. If the pictures are visible manifestations of inflammation of small bronchi (bronchiolitis) in the form of pockets of frosted glass — local or extensive, the patient should be tested PCR for coronavirus.
— How dangerous pneumonia caused by a coronavirus?
— Acute respiratory distress syndrome. It triggers the release of huge quantities of biologically active cells — cytokines: cytokine storm occurs, life-threatening. Cytokines “close up” the alveoli and does not allow the person to breathe.
What are the consequences of viral pneumonia and how to handle them? Is it possible to prevent the transition of acute obstructive bronchitis chronic? How to help a person when hit in the respiratory tract foreign body before the ambulance?
