Introduction-- To save the world from the pandemic,researchers from all over the world are working day in and day out to find the cure of the pandemic Amid this,researchers are counting on blood thinners.
Blood clots in the veins often present in the legs as deep vein thrombosis and dislodged into the lungs,which is called a pulmonary embolism. Around one in four covid-19patiens admitted to intensive care will develope PE
In addition,covid-19 appears to cause tiny blood clots that can block small vessels in the lungs. These "micro" blood clots may be a key reason why patients with covid-19 often have very low oxygen levels.
1.Antiplatelet drugs: some blood thinners thin the blood to keep blood cells from sticking together in the veins and arteries.examples- Aspirin,clopidogrel(plavix),Dipyridamole(persantine),Ticlopidine(Ticlid).
However, this finding has to be confirmed before the higher does can be generally recommended. Fortunately several research studies are underway in Europe ,the UK and elsewhere to test and answer this question definitive
No,it is not advisable to take aspirin or any other medicine without visiting the doctors..there is no evidence blood thinners are required to prevent blood clots for people with mild covid-19 who are isolating at home.
Understanding of covid-19 and how the coronavirus attacks the body continues to rapidly evolve.researchers from around the world are publishing data almost daily..however,not all of this research has been peer reviewed.
Doctors are optimistic and hope clinical studies currently under way will show rigorous strategies for prevention and treatment of blood clotting will help to reduce severity and improve survival of patients with covid19
