American doctors, in contrast to Russia, all infected with the coronavirus treated with the help of the ventilator, said the newspaper VIEW, head of the Department of Microbiology, Virology, and Immunology, Faculty of preventive medicine of the First MGMU named after I. M. Sechenov, academician Vitaly Zverev. According to him, to treat the virus you need depending on the symptoms.
As a new type of coronavirus attacks the red blood cells, which in case of defeat losing the ability to carry oxygen, resulting in patients with infection and there are inflammatory processes in the lungs and other organs, American doctors have concluded that COVID-19 does not cause pneumonia or acute respiratory disease, and doctors treat the wrong disease.
“Americans really treated wrong because they are all patients immediately put on artificial lung ventilation (ALV). But our doctors understand this and send patients on a ventilator in very extreme cases,” says Zverev.
Virologist explains that one does not exclude the other, if a person went pneumonia, this does not mean that it does not need to be treated because it also hurts coronavirus infection.
“Yes, indeed, the virus infects the red blood cells, so there is this microcline in the alveoli. But in some cases, pneumonia is still there. It’s just not mandatory for all patients with coronavirus. Therefore, we cannot say that we treat wrong,” – said Zverev.
That virus COVID-19 attacks the hemoglobin in red blood cells, not the lungs, was first identified by Chinese scholars. Then the results of the study confirmed the experts from Italy.
