First patient with symptoms of suspicious covid get successful one hour of intensive and immediate treatment
Baripura is a small village situated near Thuvavi in Dabhoi taluka. For Manubhai Mohanbhai Patanwadia, an elderly man from a poor family, the largest covid tr triage facility in Gujarat is a blessing in disguise. The patient, who was suspected to have symptoms of covid, including shortness of breath, and was approximately 80 years old, was brought directly to Covid Triage by 108 staff on time. Looking at the emergency he was given the necessary supply to reach his oxygen level to almost normal. Upon arrival, his condition stabilized within the first hour of treatment and the required sample RTPCR method was taken for his covid test, after which he will be taken to the appropriate ward for further treatment.
Expressing the feeling that the risk factor is high even if the patient has a general illness due to old age, the administrative nodal officer of Covid treatment facility, Dr. O.B. Belim said, when he was brought here, the oxygen level was 82/84 and B.P. was as low as 90. He had shortness of breath, fever, cough and cold.
First of all, it was necessary to bring his oxygen level to a normal level, so they started giving him 6 kilograms of oxygen per minute through a mask and gave him 10 liters of oxygen per minute as needed. As a result his oxygen level rose to 98 and he feel relieved. Following the necessary medication and injections his BP was also improved. As his health stabilized, he underwent an X-ray and the necessary samples and blood samples for the covid test were taken. Thus, for the first patient of very old age and with various complications, this triage facility is becoming almost life saving. He has also given the necessary dressing here as he has injured his leg.
There is also a dedicated patient vessel facility with triage. If needed, CT scans can also be done by transporting them to the campus. The rule is to sanitize the patient after each use, whether the patient is positive or negative. Dedicated mobile no. 9313361091 has also been allotted.
It is estimated that the cost would have been around Rs 40,000 in the first three hours if the patient had been taken to a non-government hospital. Free treatment at a government hospital has brought much relief to the poor working class family. The state government has made state-of-the-art facilities for covid treatment available in government hospitals like Sayaji which are proving to be life saving and health boon alike.
