IMPORTANT POINTS TO NOTE

  • Noting the days of symptoms, fever charting, Pulse ox/ Resp. rate monitoring and timely admission can save many lives.
  • Remdesivir should be used in patients with evident LRTI(moderate/severe) within 10 days of symptoms onset in admitted patients.
  • IV Steroids are the lifesaving & should be used cautiously at a timely manner for short duration with strict R135(<200) control.
  • Patients with 2x D dimer should be given S.0 LMWH (Enoxaparin). – NOT much role of plasma post 7 days of symptom onset (Don’t run for this).
  • Tocilizumab is indicated in very few patients with markedly raised CRP/1L6 not responding to high dose steroids and rapid clinical deterioration.
  • Don’t Run for lab tests and HRCT in early days of symptoms onset. Timely investigations will save resources and help in triage of admission.
  • Patients with mild symptoms/ Asymptomatic in-home isolation for 14 days don’t need to repeat RTPCR to know the negative test result.
  • Must Take vaccine, adequate immunity is only achieved after 1 month of successful completion of both doses, so don’t be superman too early.
  • Must wear mask and maintain social distancing post vaccination too. People recovered from covid can take vaccine post 4-6 weeks.
