If a person’s body’s immune system becomes so active due to an infection that its organs stop functioning properly, then such a fatal condition is called Coronavirus (sepsis).
Victims of coronavirus infection have died worldwide. Many countries have started manufacturing vaccines for this.
After so many deaths, it is also necessary to raise the question in everyone’s mind that why the people who are victims of Coronavirus are dying so soon?
After all, what is this virus doing in the human body so that it does not remain alive for a long time? Focusing on similar deaths, a recent study published in the journal Lancet states that sepsis is the cause of one-fourth of worldwide deaths.
It is also said that if a person’s body’s immune system becomes so active due to an infection that it causes the organs to stop functioning properly, then such a fatal condition is called sepsis.
Due to such a dangerous reaction, tissues within the body can be destroyed, in which many parts of the body stop working, which can also lead to its death.
According to a report by the Deutscheville website, a recent study published in the journal Lancet suggests that sepsis is the cause of one-fourth of worldwide deaths.
If you look at the 2015 report, sepsis was the cause of death of about 15% of people who died in hospitals alone in Germany alone, which is more than deaths due to all kinds of dangerous cancers.
According to the site’s news, the German Sepsis Foundation advises that people should be vaccinated against the influenza virus and pneumococcus.
Newborns with a weak immune system and elderly people with diabetes, cancer, AIDS and other serious diseases are at particular risk.
What are the symptoms of sepsis?
Doctors say that all kinds of microbes like viruses, bacteria, fungus or parasites start sepsis. Pneumonia, a wound infection, urinary tract infection or stomach infection often cause sepsis.
In addition to many common seasonal influenza viruses, it is also caused by other rapidly spreading viruses – such as the coronavirus that is nowadays spread.
Apart from the common signs of infection, the specific symptoms that indicate sepsis is a sudden drop in blood pressure and the heartbeat goes up rapidly, along with fever, heavy and high breathing and feeling very ill are the symptoms of sepsis.
After this, the next and more serious phase is septic shock, in which the blood pressure falls to a dangerous level, emergency services should be enlisted in such a situation, but people are not able to do the same which is leading to death.
What is the Treatment of sepsis?
Many cases of sepsis occur in hospitals but often they are detected quite late. Treatment is started immediately after finding out.
Blood is tested. Eubiotics are given and care is also taken to maintain blood flow and ventilation. Many times sepsis patients are put into an artificial coma as a precaution. During this, arrangements are made to save the patient’s organs through all the devices.
24 Billion Dollars Spent Every Year
Such intensive treatment is not only very complex but also very expensive. Only US hospitals spend $ 24 billion on it every year, but the truth is that only a limited number of patients can be given ICU facilities due to limited beds in hospitals.
In such cases, due to infections like the coronavirus, patients who are prone to severe respiratory problems and sepsis are put in ICU first, that is why in the current system, every patient of corona cannot be provided ICU facility. And that’s why preventing infection is the most effective way to save as many lives as possible.
A relieving thing is that about half of the patients do not see any serious effect after sepsis, while in the other half cases, after three months of discharge from the hospital, the patient has a severe infection, kidney failure or cardiovascular disease.
Also, in many patients with sepsis, paralysis, depression or nervousness may be revealed later, so the most important thing is to somehow avoid sepsis in the patient.
