According to the latest data from more than 100,000 daily cases of Covid-19, demand Occupancy of intensive care beds It has grown significantly since December.

The data belong to a National Survey Implemented by the subject on January 10, between 189 units In public and private resuscitation across the country, 39 of them are dedicated to the pediatric field alone. The study, among other purposes, was conducted to analyze the third wave shock in various institutions.

Occupancy of intensive care beds in adult wards (UTIA) and pediatric wards (PICU).  The requirement for mechanical ventilation (MRA) and high flow cannula (CAFO) is met

The unit noted that the intensive care units have a 75% occupancyBut from this point on, 22% correspond to cases of covid-19. “There has been an increase in the occupancy of adult institutional therapy beds, which has come at the expense of a significant increase in positive cohort patients over the past month,” he said.

Similarly, the SATI indicated that the majority of those admitted for the disease “presented with concomitant diseases.” “Half of the patients were incomplete or did not have vaccinationsThis is what is needed Larger display of mechanical ventilation “He expressed.

In connection with ImmunizationThe health subject explained that he had used it Definition of the Ministry of Health For a full schedule of vaccinations, according to which, you need to have Less than five months begining Completed the outline In two doses or just recently taken Boosting dose.

The poll result was the total number of positives on Covid-19, About 24% did not know they had the disease upon entering a medical facility. Pandemic disease positivity has been confirmed by “routine smear without SARS CoV 2 infection criteria”.

The Argentine Society of Intensive Care has determined that out of the total number of patients admitted with Covid 19, “50% had incomplete or no vaccination. For their part, “62% of this group needed mechanical ventilation”While only 28% of those fully vaccinated had “support for invasive ventilation.”

13 centers in the north of the country They were the ones who felt the most about the increase in Covid cases that the country has experienced since December. There were 242 beds in Tukuman, Salta and Zhuzhou Arrest of 43% of coronavirus patients Of which 40% was mechanical assistance (ARM).

One of the elements that SATI included in the survey was measurement Pediatric Intensive Care Units. The total occupancy is 61, but only 10% correspond to patients with coronavirus. 71% of coronavirus positives were diagnosed with a routine smear.

Still, there is another fact that has weight. “Out of the total number of patients admitted with Kovid-19, A. 75% incomplete or without vaccination“- says the SATI report.

In turn, it is stated in detail that 72% of the group of unvaccinated patients require mechanical ventilation, while 38% of the vaccinated group need support for invasive ventilation.

“Given the large number of Covid-19 patients in the ICU, SATI recommends that the population have a complete vaccination schedule to reduce the risk of developing this serious pathology and to require less mechanical ventilation,” the organization recommends in its findings. .
