Hapyy Hypoxia in COVID-19 patients has actually occurred evenly in all hospitals that treat Corona patients in Central Java.
Symptoms or causes of Happy Hypoxia are quite dangerous and can be fatal.
Head of the Central Java Provincial Health Office, Yulianto Prabowo, said Happy Hypoxia is a phenomenon in the world, including in Central Java.
According to Yulianto, patients who experience Happy Hypoxia do not experience shortness of breath and even look healthy even though the oxygen saturation in their bodies is below 90 percent.
Even though in general you will experience shortness of breath. That is dangerous because it can suddenly become fatal.
“So he found out after measuring the oxygen saturation, that ordinary people if the saturation is below 90 are already sick and need a ventilator, but they even though the saturation is below 90 looks strong and not as bad,” he explained.
So for people who are exposed to COVID-19, x-rays can be done and if there are signs of pneumonia even though they look healthy, routine monitoring must be carried out.
For prevention in the community, Yulianto said that it remains the same as the prevention of COVID-19 in general, namely carrying out health protocols.
