Most coronavirus patients seek treatment at home. In this case, many people take medicine without the advice of a specialist doctor. Many even take antibiotics.
Taking unnecessary medications can be counterproductive for patients
Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Chairman of the Department of Rheumatology, Professor Dr. Syed Atiqul Haque.
He said this in an interview given to the health media Dr. TV.
The incidence of covidosis can be divided into mild, moderate and severe, he said.
As long as a patient does not need extra oxygen, it is called moderate, the expert said. When the level of oxygen in the oxygen measuring device pulse oximeter drops below 92, it needs oxygen artificially.
Professor Atiqul Haque said no drug has been approved so far for mild and moderate covid. It is also true that no medication is needed for mild and moderate covid.
Mild and moderate covid heals without any medication, he said. If the drug is given at this time, the side effects of the drug may be reversed. For those whose oxygen levels have not decreased, no medication is effective.
The expert said that as a matter of science, it is wrong to give any medicine for mild and moderate covid. There are some diseases in the world that do not require any medicine. No medication is needed for common diarrhea or viral colds.
“In some places, no treatment is the best treatment,” he said. As is the case with jaundice. It does not require any medicine or even medicine does not work. Jaundice causes some complications. But they cannot be prevented by drugs. ‘
Professor Atiqul Haque said, ‘Covid is a type of disease that is more severe in very few patients. Since there is no prescriptive drug that will stop the flow of emotions, it is best not to give them.
Describing his own experience, Mr. “I have seen antibiotics being used somewhere in the case of Kovid patients. The antibiotics that are used in Bangladesh, we talk to microbiologists 10 times if we want to give them to an ICU patient in Britain,” Khan said.
Complaints are also being received from the relatives of the patients at different times that the medicine is being used arbitrarily in the treatment of 19 patients of Kovid in Bangladesh.
There is disagreement among the doctors themselves as to how much of these drugs are needed.
There is also a big difference between public and private hospitals in the application of drugs, say those involved in the treatment.
