Patients' ExperiencesBack to Daily dose of health
After two weeks on mechanical ventilation and after 4 cycles of hemofiltration, our 61-year-old patient from Berovo goes home with a negative SARS-CoV-2 test
After a month stay in our Clinic, or more specifically, in the Department where patients tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus are treated, a patient who has gone through a difficult yet successful treatment process goes home.
The patient was treated in our Clinic for a month and was admitted in extremely severe general condition, positive for Coronavirus, with his body temperature above 38 degrees Celsius.
Immediately after admission, the patient was placed on non-invasive monitoring where we could monitor the patient’s vital parameters and the required laboratory, microbiological and genetic analyses were performed.
The analyses results showed elevated levels of inflammatory markers, leukocytes, CRP, procalcitonin as well as elevated D-dimer, LDH and interleukin 6 levels.
Applying our medical knowledge and following the latest recommendations for treatment of patients positive for Covid-19, we base part of the treatment of critically ill patients on blood purification that is based on the method of chemosorption of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators.
The patient was placed on veno-venous hemofiltration using an Oxiris filter and due to inversion of the gas analyses, low peripheral saturation as well as the X-ray findings of acute respiratory distress syndrome, the patient was intubated and placed on mechanical ventilation.
The patient underwent 4 cycles of hemofiltration. After the fourth cycle of hemofiltration, an improvement in his overall general condition and all the findings could be noticed.
After spending almost two weeks on a mechanical ventilator, the patient was extubated, or removed from the machine. The patient leaves our Clinic with a negative Coronavirus test and in a good and stable condition.
