- When in home isolation, keep a distance from the heater, blower or brazier
- The use of blowers and heaters causes stains in the lungs due to excess of carbon dioxide.
- Patient may suffer from hypoxia
If you are in home isolation, then keep a distance from heater, blower or brazier to avoid cold. Their use reduces the level of oxygen in the room, which may cause the corona-infected patient to have trouble breathing. Because there is already a possibility of oxygen deficiency in the body of the infected person. In such a situation, the patient can suffocate even if the oxygen level is very low. If told, the patient may suffer from hypoxia.
Doctor Praveen Chaudhary of ESI Hospital says that doors and windows of houses are usually kept open for sunlight and wind. There is a system of ventilation in every room of the houses, but in the cold weather, blowers and heaters are often used in the houses to avoid winter. Using them in the room reduces the amount of oxygen. It is learned that due to corona, there is a lack of oxygen in the body of the infected many times. In such a situation, if the infected remains in a low-volume oxygen room, then their condition can worsen. You can also die In home isolation the infected are being advised not to run blowers and heaters.
Stains on lungs
Doctors say that a healthy person breathes and exits 14 to 16 times a minute. If it rises above 20, the problem increases. On the other hand, the level of oxygen in the body should be more than 95. If it starts to decrease, then it is natural to worry and the problem may increase. Oxygen levels are lower in corona-infected patients with Happy Hypoxia. There is no sign of it. In this, the oxygen level of several times falls to 60-70, which is quite dangerous. The use of blowers and heaters causes stains in the lungs due to excess of carbon dioxide. When there is a lack of oxygen in the body, lethargy begins. The patient cannot even get up.
Infection can spread
Dr. Shuchin Bajaj says that airflow can be dangerous even inside the house, if a person is contaminated, the airflow from the blower and heater can contaminate the entire place and others who are in that room. Dr. Amit Bhushan, Associate Director of Cardiology, Paras Hospital, says that according to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is important to understand that the virus causing Kovid-19 is not airborne. The virus spreads mainly through droplets, when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Fans and air blowers or air conditioners used in an indoor location where used by many may, possibly, spread infected droplets.
