Fortis saves a young dengue patient with its rapid and effective treatment
This case was critical when the patient was brought to the emergency ward of Fortis Escorts Hospitals Jaipur, as the patient was not responding to management in the previous hospital. This escalated the severity, leading to pneumonia and mal-functioning of organs, acute compartment syndrome and finally, failure in muscles functioning. This paired with low BP, bleeding in the air passage and lungs and excess accumulation of water in the stomach, needed critical reactionary measures, in order to save a life. The patient underwent three critical corrective procedures and also recovered completely.
Dengue fever is a painful debilitating mosquito-borne disease caused by one of four closely related dengue viruses. these viruses are related to the viruses that cause West Nile infection and yellow fever. Dengue has shed its seasonal nature and now is making its presence felt through the length and breadth of the country.
“This has been a crucial victory for us in a critical condition, with acute pneumonia keeping the precious life in the dangle. compartmental shock syndrome and bleeding in the lungs had aggravated the situation, which needed rapid attention. the major alarming was the lack of preventive measures applied by the previous hospitals that lead to the escalation”, says Dr, Sanjay Choudhary, Consultant of Paediatrics, Fortis Escorts Hospital Jaipur. it was the quick thinking of the pediatric department, along with Mr. Shabber of Intensive Care and Dr. Garsa, that we have been able to handle the situation.
Yet I would like to throw light on the flailing situation of hygiene and the lack of preventive measure taken by the medical bodies and citizens alike. Dengue is on a widespread, since 4-5 yrs and is rampant amongst children. we need to take ownership of the situation and work towards bolstering the hygiene of the nation; else loss of young lives would be in our hand”, says Dr. Shabber Joad, Director- Critical Care, Fortis Escorts Jaipur.
