The new Novel Coronavirus disease affects the COVID-19 system of respiration, during which most patients suffer from dry cough and difficulty breathing.
The first COVID-19 patient was admitted earlier this month to George Washington University Hospital in the United States.
Doctors there now reviewed the patient’s lungs using virtual reality technology and his video was shared on YouTube in the past.
In this video or simulation, healthy lung tissue is shown in blue while virus-infected tissue is shown in yellow.
Dr. Keith Mortman, head of the hospital’s breast surgery department, said: “The combination of lung virus-infected and healthy tissues is shocking; in fact after seeing it, there is no need for a medical degree with the name to understand. Damage to the lungs is not limited to a single part; in fact, both lungs are severely damaged. ‘
“This creates the possibility of damaging the lungs of cured COVID-19 patients on a long-term basis,” he said.
Earlier in mid-March, a medical expert in Hawking Kong discovered that the lungs of those newly diagnosed with the Novel Coronavirus could be prone to lung problems and that some people might have trouble breathing when walking fast.
According to a report by the South China Morning Post, the Hong Kong hospital authority concluded this after reviewing the first patients recovered from the coronavirus disease COVID-19.
Doctors discovered that 2 out of 12 patients had changes in lung capacity.
During the press conference, Dr. Owen Tsang Tak, the medical director of the hospital’s Infectious Disease Center, said, “These people breathe when they walk a little faster, However, after complete remission of the disease, some patients ‘lung function may decrease by 20 to 30%.’
It is still premature to determine the long-term effects of the disease, but a lung scan of 9 patients revealed a glass-like pattern, which indicated a loss of limbs, he added.
He said that further tests of these patients will be determined to what extent their lung functions are now functioning, and how physiotherapy will be managed to strengthen the lungs.
Healthy patients can help their lungs recover completely from various exercises, such as swimming, the doctor said.
Later in China, a study revealed that if the severity of the disease is high, the lungs of the patient usually appear to be fluid that resembles cases of pneumonia and can be diagnosed with a CT scan, in which White marks are seen on the lungs, called Dr. Ground glass.
Ct scans of hundreds of patients were reviewed by Tong Ji Hospital in Wuhan (the city of China from which the virus began to spread).
According to research published in the journal Journal of Radiology, the analysis revealed ground-glass infection, ie airways filling the lungs. While small cells in the lungs (which exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide molecules with blood) are damaged.
These ground glass CT scans appear in the form of fade drops, which change in shape as the disease worsens, as you can see in the small yellow arrows in the CT scan below.
The fluid is not only specific to the coronavirus, but is also discovered in many types of infections and lung diseases, but its structure and distribution in COVID-19 is specific.
More than a thousand patients were included during this study and discovered that their chest CT scan was the most effective means of diagnosing COVID-19 compared to the lab test.
Cod 19’s serious complications appear as a result of pneumonia, resulting in problems such as difficulty breathing, oxygen levels in the body and coughing, gradually lungs unable to absorb an adequate amount of oxygen from the blood.
