Breathlessness and Blood Clotting is an utmost Post-Recovery Concern

With the case of ebbing, doctors opposed with the complications such as breathlessness and clotting among the recovered patients and many experts TOI spoke with said patients basically above forty-five years and those who have recovered from moderate infection to severe infections. Those who have faced these complications by this severe infection.

Dr. Sujay Prasad who is the medical director and Neuberg Diagnostics said that they have also seen patients who are suffering from clotting problems and in many cases, they have found clotting in the brain which is dangerous for the human body as the brain is responsible for many activities which keeps the people alive.

Clotting in the brain can cause severe issues within the body of patients and people who are suffering from clotting. The main problem is that these complications which arise in the brain, arteries, or even legs do not appear immediately and this makes it more challenging to identify and to treat these complications.

Dr. Ravindra M Mehta, who is a senior consultant and HOD of Apollo Specialty Hospitals, claimed that he has seen a return of familiar signs or symptoms like fever, breathlessness, and even fatigue. He is pulmonology, and he as well said that more sequelae include impairment of renal and cardiovascular functions, myalgia, depression, and many other persistent physical and emotional effects. He also had ongoing hypercoagulability.

Blood clotting occurs mainly in the brain, legs, and arteries. When the blood clot form in the veins of the body, then it is called deep vein thrombosis. It primarily occurs in the leg, and it can even happen anywhere in the body such as in the brain, pelvis, arm, and other. By this, it prevents new clots from developing and existing clots from growing further larger. It does not dissolve a clot, but the body dissolves that clot naturally.
