Shortness Of Breath Symptoms Of Corona Virus
I want to ask, what is the severity of shortness of breath that symptoms of the Corona virus are blocked in the throat / in the nose because of the “flu”?
Hello Bhoren 90, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Shortness of breath is defined as a condition when a person has difficulty breathing or lack of air intake into the body.
This condition can generally occur because:
Reduced oxygen intake of the body The airways are blocked / narrowed so that the flow of air becomes difficult to enter the respiratory tract Disorders of the lungs or heart organs Respiratory muscles that do not work effectively In Corona virus infection, mild shortness of breath may indeed occur due to nasal congestion due to infection in the upper respiratory tract, but severe shortness of breath which causes the threat of failure to breathe in Corona virus infection due to infection of the lungs that is severe enough to cause inflammation and fluid buildup in air bubbles in the lungs that are difficult to remove so that the function of oxygen gas exchange in the lungs decreases and causes the body to experience oxygen deficiency and shortness of complaints appear.
If this condition occurs continuously without proper handling, then the damage to the lungs can be more widespread, the incoming oxygen decreases causing damage to other organs (including the brain) and also the respiratory muscles become exhausted until finally there is a failure to breathe which can lead to death.
I hope this helps.
