When you hear the novel coronavirus pneumonia, you will know that it will damage the respiratory system, but other hazards are not limited to this. Beijing Ditan Hospital, 4, novel coronavirus pneumonia was successfully discharged from hospital in February 25th. Liu Jingyuan, director of the ICU of the hospital, reminded that patients with consciousness disorders must consider that the virus may attack the central nervous system.
The first case of novel coronavirus pneumonia complicated with encephalitis in the world
A week ago, novel coronavirus pneumonia, 56, was discharged from the Ditan hospital. He is a novel coronavirus pneumonia patient with encephalitis.
Previous studies have shown novel coronavirus pneumonia can be associated with severe respiratory distress syndrome, myocardial damage, coagulation dysfunction, kidney injury, liver damage and other organ damage, and no central nervous system involvement has been reported. This case is the first case in the world.
Liu Jingyuan said that novel coronavirus novel coronavirus pneumonia has become a global public health event. The treatment of critically ill patients with new coronavirus infection is still a huge challenge. The direct damage of virus to target organs and the systemic inflammatory response caused by it may be the main pathogenic mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Liu Jingyuan reminded the medical staff in the front-line of anti epidemic treatment that there are many cases of neck resistance, positive pathological signs, sudden disturbance of consciousness and even coma in clinical observation. In the face of such patients, we need to be alert to the new coronavirus infection that may affect the central nervous system, timely check the cerebrospinal fluid and other related tests, and improve the work of sars-cov-2 nucleic acid and gene sequencing in the cerebrospinal fluid To understand covid-19 in an all-round way and actively deal with the related neurological complications, so as to further reduce the mortality of critical patients.
