COVID-19- Respiratory Distress - a challenge

A 70 years male with Respiratory distress presented in ED - he was given oxygen support. He was investigated for COVID-19. His USG was normsl His X- ray had typical Ground glass opacities. As he was being stabilised on treatment after his investigations were complete- he suddenly collapsed and died 4 hours after admission in ED Only after his death- his report of RT - PCR came - which was positive for COVID-19. The Aim of this post is to emphasize that a patient in Respiratory distress due to COVID-19 if presents in emergency- it is very difficult to save such a patient as our colleagues in ED - also fear of getting contacted and so patient is not enthusiastically managed . There are lot of draw - backs .Our valiant P.G"s are attending to most of ED patients with lack of good quality PPE kits and no provision like negative pressure Emergency rooms . There is,a grave risk for our junior doctors in ED and they don't get help from senior doctors
