Routine check-ups by doctors must be allowed during lockdown

July 3, 2020

In
these days of restricted movements, I, a medical practitioner, is required to
go out and attend to my patients. These include those who are already
undergoing my treatment or previous known people requiring fresh medical
attention. This is still much minimal movement as compared to routine daily
practice and socialization.  This carries risk in the present environment
of Covid-19. One tries to avoid visits and travel where even otherwise one
notices barricades and inquiries by police authorities.

In
one of my recent experiences, a patient had sudden chills and fever with
breathlessness. I had treated him for acute abdominal pain more than a month
ago. At that time, he was also being treated for cold, cough and constipation
by a physician for a week. He was referred to me following High WBC counts and USG
abdomen showing Acute Cholecystitis. When first seen by me, he was breathless
with Bilateral Pedal Oedema and high fever. I treated him at Corporate Hospital
ICU with supportive HIV fluids, broadspectrum antibiotics and cardiologist
opinion. His LVEF was 20%. His Renal function was impaired. He was also being
treated by critical care specialists. 

Sad,
during this Septicaemia, he had a cardiac arrest. Being in ICU, he could be
revived. There was no neurological deficit and later he was discharged
safely. 

However,
at the time of pandemic, he was attended for fever, breathlessness and chills. The
lockdown made it difficult to get blood tests done. Radiology was not
comfortably available. He was treated at home with pulse rate of 128/minute,
SpO2 84% and high temperature. 

With
a dedicated medical intervention, the patient has been recovering. There had
been many impediments like restricted movements, difficulties in blood tests
and other services.

Therefore,
one needs to have routine medical services always. And all the more during the
lockdown. As of now, one must also be careful and take preventive measures such
as using face masks and sticking to the social distancing norms.
