  • Florida specialists have found a new indicator in patients that could detect the coronavirus early.
  • The new indicator to assess whether someone has coronavirus could save lives by attacking them quickly, Florida doctors said.
  • Experts from the University of Miami, Florida, urged doctors to be vigilant with patients who present what they consider a new indicator of the coronavirus.

As the United States continues to grapple with the coronavirus, Florida specialists have discovered a new indicator to detect it that could save lives.

As reviewed Local 10 This Friday, Miami doctors made a discovery that could save lives: Blood clots could be an early indicator of COVID-19.

According to the aforementioned media, surgeons from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine reported that the finding indicates that it is not necessary for the person to suffer from typical symptoms to know that they have the coronavirus.

Dr. Jorge Rey, head of vascular surgery at UHealth, told the aforementioned media: “We are used (to detect) only the respiratory systems. Loss of smell and taste. Now, with this, we are more aggressive in treating COVID-19 patients with blood thinners from the beginning. “

The discovery, according to Local 10, was made when a patient came in with clots in the arteries in his arm, causing loss of blood flow.

So the doctors got to work fast and discovered that the patient had COVID-19.

Dr. Rey mentioned that he has seen several patients with this symptom.

Faced with this situation, the doctor wants doctors to be alert and aware of COVID-19 infections even when patients do not have suspicious risk factors.

The university’s discovery of how blood clots can be an early sign of detecting coronavirus has been published nationally in the Journal of Vascular Surgery, Local 10 noted.

They find the probable order of the symptoms of the coronavirus

On the other hand, a study published a few weeks ago indicated that scientists discovered the probable order in which symptoms appear of the coronavirus.

A group of researchers from the University of Southern California (USC) determined the probable order in which the symptoms of the coronavirus appear, which can help infected people to seek medical attention earlier, local media reported.

According to the Efe news agency, the study found that generally the first symptom of a person infected with COVID-19 is fever. Coughing and muscle pain would follow, then nausea and / or vomiting, and then diarrhea.

The study authors from USC’s Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience noted that knowing the order of the symptoms of the new coronavirus can help patients to isolate themselves earlier and seek medical attention sooner.

“Since there are now better approaches to treatments for COVID-19, identifying patients earlier could reduce hospitalization time,” said Joseph Larsen, lead author of the study and professor at USC, in a statement.

Research highlights that although fever and cough are frequently associated with many respiratory illnesses, including Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), symptoms in the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract distinguish COVID-19 patients.

“The upper gastrointestinal tract (nausea and vomiting) appears to be affected earlier than the lower gastrointestinal tract (diarrhea) in COVID-19, which is the opposite of MERS and SARS,” the scientists wrote.

This information about the probable order of appearance of symptoms can also help doctors rule out other diseases or plan how to treat patients, according to the researchers cited by Efe.

“This order is especially important to know when we have overlapping cycles of diseases such as influenza that coincide with COVID-19 infections,” explained Professor Peter Kuhn, research advisor, quoted by the ABC7 channel.

“Doctors can determine what steps to take to care for the patient and can prevent the patient’s condition from getting worse,” he added.

The research was based on the symptoms of more than 55,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in China, collected from February 16 to 24 by the World Health Organization (WHO).

“The order of the symptoms matters. Knowing that each disease progresses differently means that doctors can identify earlier if someone is likely to have COVID-19 or another disease, which can help them make better decisions about treatment, ”Larsen concluded.

The scientific findings were published in the journal Frontiers in Public Health.
