Battling drop in SpO2 levels due to Covid19 | Help Guide

  1. 1. Immediate things to do when SpO2 levels are dropping Disclaimer: This information is curated after helping few people and curating the common information shared by doctors whom I spoke with. I can't guarantee the effectiveness, but it's worth considering while you get expert advice and professional help.
  2. 2. TAKE STEAM Use a nebulizer if you can find one. Add a tincture of benzoin (2 drops) if possible Click on this picture to see some home remedies for taking steam -> 01 https://www.wikihow.com/Use-Steam-to-Relieve-Sinus-Pressure
  3. 3. PRONE EXERCISE Lie upside down, on your stomach for easier breathing Click to play the video -> 02 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCkHPYpwg2g&feature=emb_title&ab_channel=UConnHealth
  4. 4. DRINK ONLY HOT WATER This is extremely important as oxygen escapes faster from warm/hot water 03
  5. 5. USE OXYGEN CYLINDER/ CONCENTRATOR Ensure SpO2 levels are always maintained above 95 using a pulse oximeter, till the patient gets admitted. Use this guide to understand how to use a cylinder at home -> 04 https://www.wikihow.com/Do-Oxygen-Therapy
  6. 6. SEEK DOCTORS HELP TO GET INTERIM MEDICINES If the SpO2 levels are dropping below 90, get the patient interim medicines (like steroids) using doctors help and rush to the hospital ! 05
  7. 7. While all these interim measures are taken, get the patient admitted ASAP. 06
  8. 8. Things to Ensure Make sure the patient is in positive state of mind This is critical. for them to respond to treatment, including anti-virals like remdesevir Try to ensure that the patient understands some of these practices Even after they're admitted, they need to still be able to take care of themselves to keep the SpO2 levels above 95. Doctors are in a pretty overwhelmed state and it won't be possible to give 100% attention to each patient
