As we see the decline in the number of hospital beds available for COVID patients in India, It is even more important for us to keep ourselves safe and know how to treat ourselves without hospitalization.
Not every patient needs a hospital bed, the only condition is that you must observe the signs early, consult your doctor and start the treatment without waiting for the test results. A patient can be treated at home as well. Early actions can lead to a COVID free you!
Now I would like to tell you some of the Tips to follow if you feel the symptoms, which can help you recover early and definitely. You may even avoid the possibility of being hospitalised, if you follow them religiously.
- Firstly, you must carefully observe COVID symptoms, such as fever, body pain, dry cough, sore throat, diarrhoea or loss of smell and taste. The moment you feel any of these symptoms your first action should be to isolate yourself from others and lock yourself in a separate room which has a washroom, proper ventilation and all your personal belongings that you may need.
- After being isolated, consult your doctor and arrange a COVID test at home. But, do not wait for the results. Start taking the medicines prescribed by your doctor without waiting for the result. If you are tested positive or even negative, consult your doctor again.
You can take Antibiotics, Antivirals and Vitamins like Azithromycin, Doxycycline, Favipiravir, Zinc, Vit A, E, etc.
- You must keep a thermometer and oximeter handy with you. Place the oximeter in the index finger of your left hand for 45 sec reading, monitor 3 to 4 times a day. If your body temperature rises above 99.8 degree fahrenheit, you can take a dose of Paracetamol and keep a cold damp cloth on your forehead.
- If your SPO2 level falls below 95, you must try Awake proning technique in order to improve oxygen level in the body. If your SPO2 level drops below 90 you can take a decision of being hospitalised only then. If you cannot find a bed at any hospital near you, you can also use an oxygen cylinder or concentrator to regulate oxygen in the body.
There is only one way of defeating corona and that is “Early Treatment”. Keep yourself in regular contact with your doctor. Keep monitoring your body vitals such as body temperature, SPO2, Blood pressure.
