How Do We Manage Severe Cases of Covid 19?
If you have more severe symptoms, especially those that include trouble breathing, you might need to stay in the hospital, possibly in the intensive care unit, or ICU. While there, you’ll probably be in a special isolation room where only medical staff will be allowed in the room, and they’ll have to wear special gowns, gloves, masks, and eye protection.
The doctors and nurses can monitor and support your breathing and other body functions and make you as comfortable as possible. You might need extra oxygen to help you breathe easily. If you’re having a very hard time breathing, you might need to be put on a ventilator, a machine that helps you breathe.
