Many people are aware of the symptoms of COVID-19 happy hypoxia because they can endanger lives.
The reason is, happy hypoxia occurs when a patient experiences a lack of oxygen levels without feeling short of breath.
This condition can cause the patient to experience a fatal condition suddenly because he did not experience any symptoms beforehand.
A pulmonary specialist from Friendship Hospital, Dr. Erlina Burhan MSc, SpP, said that happy hypoxia can occur because of damage to the nerves that deliver the tightness sensor to the brain.
This condition causes the brain to not respond to recognize a lack of oxygen in the blood.
Supposedly, under normal conditions, the brain sends signals to the body to take in as much oxygen as possible by breathing fast so that it is visible
Although the symptoms of COVID-19 happy hypoxia are dangerous because they do not show symptoms of shortness of breath, there are several characteristics to watch out for.
Here are four signs you should be aware of:
- When symptoms increase
- If the cough persists
- When the complaint gets limp
- When the color of the lips or fingertips starts to turn blue.
