World Health Organisation – Clinical Management Of Patients With Covid-19

The World Health Organisation is working tirelessly with governments of countries to curtail the spread of COVID-19. Incidentally, it is reported that the majority of patients are adults and out of 44,672 confirmed patients in China only 2.1% were below 20 years.

Facts from WHO

Prevailing symptoms include fever, dry cough and shortness of breath. Early reports indicated acuteness of the illness was connected to people over 60 or those with a complicated medical history.

Early detection helps in the clinical care of the patients, resorting to isolating them immediately and starting on suitable control and preventive measures, providing significant care for those with mild sickness and advanced extra care for those where the disease has advanced.

WHO has published guidance for patient management which includes guidance for temporary clinical caring for hospitalised patients and guidance for treatment at home if the health care system is breaking down.

Oxygen Therapy

Oxygen therapy is a primary mediation in medical care for patients with severe COVID19. All countries have been directed to improve the availability of Oximeters and medical oxygen systems. Loss of life in people with critical illness has been reported as 50%, therefore, implementing a proven critical care mediation in the form of improving the protection of lung ventilation.
