Patients with a much more severe clinical picture, with much more advanced pneumonias that require immediate placement on oxygen, are now coming to the admissions clinic, says KBC “Bežanijska kosa” director Marija Zdravković for RTS. He adds that 95 to 99 percent of how he enters the hospital requires oxygen immediately.
The director of the “Bežanijska kosa” KBC, Marija Zdravković, as a guest in the morning reports on RTS, stated that the institute currently accommodates 300 covid patients, 40 of whom are in the intensive care unit.
And these are the most difficult patients with different methods of ventilation with high oxygen pressure. The age structure is diverse and different. At the moment, we do not have so many young patients, most of them are on average 62 years old and most years of life are a factor in the complications of the disease, “explains Zdravković.
Guest Jutarnji dnevnik estimates that we now have patients with a much more difficult clinical picture.
“Patients who come to the admissions clinic come with a much more difficult clinical picture, with much more advanced pneumonias that require immediate introduction of oxygen. Now, 95 to 99 percent of patients entering the hospital need oxygen immediately, “says KBC director” Bežanijska kosa “.
Do not take the therapy yourself
He calls on citizens not to be treated at home alone, because, as he says, the disease is specific and requires special therapy.
“It’s the biggest mistake that can be made. This type of disease is specific, never existed, requires special therapy, has its stages. It is first important to assess the patient’s stage and provide therapy. It is a big mistake if “In one phase of the disease there is therapy that is given in the other phase. Therefore, this can only be determined by experts who have very rich experience in the treatment of patients, “explains Zdravković.
The measures themselves mean nothing
When asked if he has already noticed the result of the measures that have been tightened, the guest Jutarnji dnevnik answers:
“It’s discreetly noticed, not as significant as we would like, but we didn’t give enough space to notice it. It is very important that all these measures are implemented, but it is even more important to say, no matter how boring it seemed to someone, “Measures mean nothing to themselves, people are the ones who have to take these measures, implement them and be consistent. because we all see that your virus is extremely contagious, “explains Zdravkovic.
The course of the disease in the next six months is now being decided
He emphasizes that it is very important to keep contacts to a minimum, because, as he says, the course of the disease and our lives in the next six months is being decided today.
“It’s important to keep contacts to a minimum because we are now in the last quarter of this game and it is very important that we win this game. Anything that is not vital, please do not contact within the next two weeks. Today, the course of this disease is decided and organizations in general and our lives in the next six months, “said KBC Director” Bežanijska kosa “.
