Ministry of Health Coronavirus Scientific Committee Member Assoc. Dr. Afşin Emre Kayıpmaz said that every drug should be used rationally. Emphasizing the need to be careful about antipyretic drugs such as aspirin and parasetemol, painkillers and antibiotics, Kayıpmaz said, "As with every drug, blood thinners should be used carefully and in appropriate patients.
CAUSE OF COILING IN THE CORONAVIRUS VESSEL
Pointing out that it is a guide published by the Scientific Committee on this issue, Kayıpmaz said, "We also benefit from blood thinners in the treatment of Covid-19, which is a disease leading to intravascular coagulation. we know "used expressions.
Assoc. Dr. Stating that blood thinners are recommended to be used at home in patients who are hospitalized for Covid-19 treatment, and who have a high risk of clot formation in the veins, she continued as follows: "Those who have a risk of clot formation in the veins are at an advanced age, overweight-obese, with a history of cancer, in the past. In this patient group, aspirin can be used for at least 14 days if the risk of bleeding from any system is low. There are also blood thinners such as enoxoparin that can be used other than aspirin. "
"DOCTOR'S VIEW IS IMPORTANT"
Emphasizing that the opinion of the physician evaluating the patient's condition is important in the use of blood thinners, Kayıpmaz made the following warnings: "If the physician thinks of a risk for coagulation in the person, it can be started. Especially in hospitalized patients, blood thinners can be treated with this aspirin or low molecular weight heparin. In the later stages of the disease, it significantly prevents clotting into the vessels.
We started to encounter this one. The patient is having Covid-19. After a while, clots may occur in the lung vessels of the patient. The phenomenon we call pulmonary embolism. Therefore, it is important to use blood thinners to prevent the patient's intravenous clotting. However, unconsciously, it is not appropriate to use aspirin or low molecular weight heparin without direct doctor's advice. If the physician deems appropriate, it can be used exclusively for the patient. Unconsciously used aspirin may cause consequences such as bleeding and Reye's syndrome and should not be used without a doctor's recommendation.
