Health portal provides educational video: This is how a person’s lungs sound when they are damaged by the new corona virus.
Network – What does a person’s lungs sound like when it is damaged by the new corona virus? The learning portal “Medzcool“has released a recording. The sounds are terrifying.
Treating patients infected with the novel coronavirus still poses enormous challenges for doctors, hospital staff and scientists worldwide.
Lung disease, for which there is still no vaccine or new medication, is a mystery to experts, which is only slowly being solved, although doctors from all over the world are researching the virus and constantly sharing their knowledge.
“Medzcool” supports this work, provides doctors, students and even patients with large amounts of health data in the form of graphics, videos and facts – and not only for SARS-CoV-2.
A new educational video on the COVID-19 virus has been published in the portal’s medical sound library.
The recording shows what happens in the lungs infected with SARS-CoV-2 and what sounds they make: it is a terrifying combination of a kind of crackling, light wheezing, howling, scary moans and murmurs.
John Wilson, pulmonologist at the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in Sydney, Australia, explained in the Australian Guardian what happens in the lungs of a person with SARS-CoV-2.
After that, the lungs occupied by the coronovirus react with a protein-containing liquid that escapes from the vessels in the event of inflammation. This is the so-called exudate. This secretion floods the air transmission paths, their efficiency is reduced. The result is shortness of breath and faster breathing, cramps of the smooth bronchial muscles (bronchospasm) and coughing.
