Do you have any fell for "comorbidities" in the COVID patient population?

Mke-SMO said...

Obviously "fell" should have been "feel".

My impression that most of those who get into trouble, started in trouble. [High Blood Pressure, Type II Diabetes, Congestive Heart, Immune suppression, etc]

Generally speaking, you often have poorer outcomes when you are in poor health to begin with, but I've also seen patients with zero comorbidities hospitalized with COVID, so your mileage may vary!

Mike-SMO said...

Any number of "silent" comorbidities. High Blood Pressure, Type II Diabetes, marginal heart condition, advanced age, etc. Something waiting until the immune system is busy with the primary,..... As well as plain bad luck.

Whatever, it will keep you busy.

I once had a poster; dragon and rainbows. " It is always darkest before the dawn". And the clock slows down.

Hang in...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Watch out for the "Tart Green Apple" anything. I swear our place had a bulk tank of the stuff right next to the liquid oxygen. Yuck!

Back on Onc? At least the survival rate on COVID ICU was probably higher. Tough duty either way.
