Covid Monitor Initial in Ahmednagar
COVID-19 Monitoring Packages are for people who have been contracted COVID-19 infection and want to keep their health parameters in check from the safety and convenience of their home.
Having been detected with COVID-19 infection, the impact on health of a person is different in different stages. So for those who have contracted the infection , there are 3 packages & can be chosen as per the duration of symptoms –.
- 0 to 5 days (covid monitor initial)
- from 5 to 10 days (covid monitor maintenance), and
- from 10 days or more (covid monitor recovery).
The COVID-19 Monitoring Packages include CBC with Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio, IL6, cardiac troponin, D Dimer, ferritin, CRP, PT, LDH, Albumin, liver enzymes (SGPT), creatinine & ESR. It is recommended to perform these tests as soon as the symptoms of Covid 19 appear or as directed by the physician for initial risk assessment & stratification.
Early identification and timely treatment of COVID-19 patients at enhanced risk of developing critical disease are pivotal to prevent unfavorable clinical outcome and unsustainable burden on the health care system.
CBC Test looks at the different components of the blood, including hemoglobin, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. In covid 19 patients, decreased white blood cells, lymphocytes (assessed by Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio) and severely reduced platelet count are associated with poor prognosis.
D-dimer is test done to rule out presence of blood clot. It is a small protein fragment present in the blood after a blood clot is degraded. The level of D-dimer in the blood can significantly rise when there is significant formation and breakdown of clots in the body. Patients with COVID-19 are reported to have a hypercoagulable state i.e increased tendency to produce blood clots
The IFCC Guidelines on COVID-19 strongly suggest D-Dimer testing in patients with COVID-19.
Studies have shown that fourfold increase in D-dimer on admission could effectively predict in-hospital mortality in patients with Covid-19, which indicated D-dimer could be an early and helpful marker to improve management of Covid-19 patients.
C-Reactive protein & Erythrocyte sedimentation rate rise in response to inflammation. Measurement is useful for the detection and evaluation of infection, tissue injury, inflammatory processes in Covid 19
Interleukin-6(IL-6) Elevated concentrations of interleukin-6 (IL-6) may indicate an ongoing inflammatory response & it is one of the key mediators of inflammation and viral cytokine storm in COVID-19 patients
Sequential measurements of IL-6 in serum or plasma of patients admitted to the ICU showed to be useful in evaluating the severity of SIRS ( Systemic inflammatory response syndrome) ,sepsis and septic shock and to predict the outcome of these, making it useful indicator in COVID patients.
PCT is a widely used biomarker to assess the risk of bacterial infection and disease progression & may serve as a valuable tool in identifying COVID 19patients at high risk for bacterial co infection. Few studies have reported positive association of elevated PCT levels with the severity of COVID-19
Cardiac injury biomarkers (Troponin I/T) According to recent studies published, cardiac injury biomarkers were elevated in most of the complicated cases of COVID-19, and their elevation is directly proportional to the worst outcome.
Increased levels of liver enzymes can mean that liver is at least temporarily damaged. Patients with severe COVID-19 appear to have more frequent signs of liver dysfunction than those with milder disease.
Antibody or serology tests look for antibodies in the blood to determine if the patient had a past infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. It can take 1–3 weeks after the infection for body to produce antibodies.
Day 1 - Day 5 of infection: The COVID Monitor Initial Package measures over 13 parameters that track various components which include CBC with Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), IL6, cardiac troponin, D Dimer, ferritin, CRP, PT, LDH, Albumin, liver enzymes (SGPT), creatinine & ESR. It is recommended to perform these tests as soon as the symptoms of Covid 19 appear for the initial risk assessment & stratification..
Day 5 - Day 10 of infection: The COVID Monitor Maintenance tracks IL6, D-dimer, Ferritin, C-Reactive Protein and CBC with NLR*.For monitoring of the disease activity & progression, the tests can be done anytime from 5th to 10th day after onset of symptoms.
Before Discharge: COVID Monitoring Recovery tracks ten parameters. Ferritin, CRP, CPK, PT, LDH, CBC, creatinine , SGPT albumin & Anti SARS COv2 antibody testing may be performed for a patient recovering from the disease & getting discharged.
