A Study of Hematological Profile and Biochemical Markers of COVID-19 in Survivors and the Non-Survivors
Keywords:COVID, Non-Survivors, Survivors, Haematological, Biochemical, Markers.
Background: In the October of 2010 a disease cluster which presented with atypical pneumonia was reported in China. The disease was found to be primarily contagious and was transmitted through droplet infection. The patients presented with a plethora of signs and symptoms including raised body temperature, cough, headache, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, diarrhoea, dyspnoea, multiple organ dysfunctions. Majority of the patients reported only mild infections and were all right after a week or two. But in a minor number of cases patients progressively develop serious complications, including sepsis, acute respiratory failure, metabolic acidosis, heart failure, kidney injury, hypoxic encephalopathy, and eventually die of the illness. The study retrospectively reviewed the Case files of patients with COVID-19 and compared the haematological and biochemical characteristics between survivors and non-survivors. Aims and Objectives: To study the haematological and biochemical profile of survivors and non-survivors infected with covid 19. Materials and Methods: Seventy survivors and thirty-four non - survivors haematological and biochemical markers are studied and have been reported. This is a descriptive study and the comparison between the two are analysed accordingly. Results & Conclusion: The haematological and biochemical markers may be used as prognostic markers in covid 19.
