📍#Oxygen Therapy in COVID-19

➡️15% of #COVID19 patients may have moderate disease; #Oxygen saturation level may go < 94%

➡️5% of #COVID patients may have severe disease where once O2 level goes < 90%

- Dr. Ravichandra, National Tuberculosis Institute

Measuring O2 level with a #PulseOximeter

It measures the oxygen saturation or % of O2 in patient’s blood

A @WHO training manual says if oxygen saturation is 93% or lower, patient needs to be treated quickly

Saturation < 90% is a clinical emergency

You can measure respiratory rate without any device

Respiratory rate = No. of breaths a person takes per minute

Keep your palm on your chest, measure your respiratory rate for 1 minute

< 24/min, O2 level is safe
> 30/min, O2 level is low

After 38 days in the hospital, of which 18 days were spent in the ICU, my friend's mum is back home! She's still on #Oxygen support but man, she's back home, & the spring in my friend's voice is just beautiful. Doc said she is their miracle case ❤️

#Covid #Delhi
Aunty's mom, who was 85 years old, too got #Covid but sadly, didn't survive. They were admitted in the same hospital. My friend had to hide this news from her mum for over 15 days. Aunty knows now. We are all just GRATEFUL that she's home & recovering :)

"The house is a home again, yaar!" my friend just said this to me on the phone. When the #OxygenCrisis happened in #Delhi, I saw her running her all alone looking for a cylinder, while two members of the family were in the hospital. #Covid

The water used in the flow meters for oxygen therapy is a potential source of fungal growth. What's the rationale for using bubbled oxygen? Is giving dry oxygen better than the humidified o2?
Read on. 1/ Image
Rationale for humidified oxygen:
1.O2 therapy has a drying effect on the mucous membranes which when given for a prolonged period can result in airway damage.
2. Secretions can become thick and difficult to clear causing airway obstruction. 2/
So, Is humidified o2 better than dry o2?
It's not that simple.
For Low flow o2 therapy (<5L/min) humidification does not have any benefits as compared to dry o2.
For high flow o2 which is usually the case in covid humidified o2 prevents airway dryness.…

#THREAD - How A Yogi-fied Uttar Pradesh Breathes A Sigh of Relief!

Let's find out how @myogiadityanath's Uttar Pradesh government with its 'Stealth Approach' stepped up their game to meet #Oxygen demands in the nation's most populated state

#YogiAdityanath #UttarPradesh

Oxygen, one of the most critical elements for clinical treatment was managed at a war footing by the #UttarPradesh government

Their focus?

The most important metric LOCATION & MOVEMENT of assets to carry as much #oxygen possible with a focus on OPTIMISATION.

Within 24 hrs, #upgovt activated teams all over #UttarPradesh & sourcing states like Jharkhand, West Bengal & Odisha to intercept trucks carrying #oxygencylinders, deployed an app for download on smartphones & placed it in each truck, w/o disturbing their ongoing route.

इस महामारी के समय में भी #CentralVistaProject हमें क्यों चाहिए ? यह बड़ा प्रश्न है और @narendramodi सरकार इसे रोक क्यों नहीं देती ? इसका उत्तर सबको जानना चाहिए क्योंकि इसे लेकर सोनिया गांधी और @RahulGandhi की अगुआई विशुद्ध झूठ बोला जा रहा है। क्या भारत की नई संसद मोदी का महल है
सबसे बड़ा झूठ यही फैलाया जा रहा है। प्रशासनिक कार्यों को बेहतर तरीक़े से करने के लिए @PMOIndia और उपराष्ट्रपति के आवास @rashtrapatibhvn के साथ ही बनेंगे। केंद्रीय सचिवालय के कर्मचारियों को आधुनिक सुविधायुक्त कार्यालय मिलेगा। अभी दिल्ली के बाहरी क्षेत्रों तक कर्मचारी बैठते हैं
भारत की संसद क़रीब १०० वर्ष पुरानी हो चुकी है। इसके स्थान पर नई संसद बनाने का प्रस्ताव @INCIndia शासनकाल में ही आया था। लोकसभा अध्यक्ष मीरा कुमार, सुमित्रा महाजन दोनों ने इसे आगे बढ़ाया। संसद को तय समय सीमा में स्वतंत्रता के ७५ वर्ष होने तक तैयार करने का लक्ष्य है #CentralVista

Navneet Kalra, accused of black marketing hundreds of oxygen concentrators, owns the restaurants Khan Chacha, Town Hall, Mr. Choy and Nege & Ju, besides Dayal Opticals. Last week, 500 oxygen concentrators were recovered from Kalra’s businesses.… Image
Khan Chacha was established by Haji Banda Hasan, popularly known as "Khan Chacha" in 1972. In 2010, Mr. Hasan joined hands with Kalra. However, the partnership split in 2016. The two sides fought a bitter court battle over 'Khan Chacha trademark.’ #NavneetKalra #Delhi #Oxygen Image
Kalra claimed that the Hasan family had signed over the rights to the brand name to him, while the latter alleged that Kalra's documents were "forged and fabricated." However, the brand name is currently being used by Kalra. #NavneetKalra #Delhi #COVID19India #DelhiPolice

Counting losses, a thread:
Last week, my 38-yr-old sis-in-law -- a vivacious, kind woman whose laughter filled any room she walked in to -- died of #Covid. Her kids don't know their mum won't return home from the hospital. I know you're sorry but pls don't send me condolences.
She was in the hospital, on #Oxygen support. On day 4, she fell sicker, and was gone within hours of being rushed into the ICU. The hospital didn't have a mortuary, cremation wasn't possible at 11 pm. Her body was kept in an ambulance overnight outside the hospital.
She was doing fine, we expected her to be home any day. There was nothing to worry about, we told ourselves. Suddenly, she was gone. Vanished. Poof. We couldn't attend the last rites, a prayer meeting hasn't happened yet. We are in shock. #Covid

#Breaking: Minutes after #PuneCivicBody tells #BombayHC that it has sufficient beds, #CJ Datta asks petitioner counsel to call on helpline number.

Counsel calls helpline number, asks for #VentilatorBed. Official says there are no #Ventilator beds

The counsel for #PMC tells HC that at present five beds are available. He says that officials on cell phone aren't doctors. They can't tell you directly if beds are there or not unless you give all details like name of patient, #oxygen level, symptoms etc

Bench responds - Mr counsel, even if that's the case, the official on helpline didn't sought details either. She just told there are no beds.

Your dashboardshows 27 ventilator beds are available at present.

Bench now asks another counsel to call helpline and give details

#Thread: Since many people in #Odisha & outside have the impression that the state govt has done incredibly well at #covidmanagement, here's something I feel people need to know too before painting a rosy picture on SM. I live in a place that is 34 km away from #Nabarangpur DH
Anxious about my father's health, I tried figuring the nearest RT-PCR test centre, and I was told there's only one centre, i.e., #Nabarangpur DHH and it takes about 5-6 days to get the test results. Why? Because they send the sample to SLN Hospital at #Koraput
Now here's what you need to know- #Odisha govt after one year of slumber, sanctioned ₹20 cr yesterday for #Covid testing labs in 16 districts and #Nabarangpur is one among them. After 1 year of a goddamn #pandemic, my district will finally have a #RTPCRTest lab.
