Following a stroke, and hallucinations, especially. But even as psychosis, depression, difficulty in concentration and memory, micro-strokes and other diseases, both neurological and psychiatric. There is also a legacy of the bitter-Covid-19th century, particularly – but not exclusively – in the in-patient, especially if he is in the intensive care unit. Doctors have noticed for quite some time, but now they begin to be familiar with the publications that you make of them. One of the most important of these is the exit of the Lancet Psychiatry, describes what has happened in the 125 patients were admitted to intensive care in hospitals across Britain, at a time of an increase in the severity of the crisis, at the beginning of April. The authors, neurologists, and psychiatrists at the University of Liverpool found that the most common is stroke, which in your case it has affected 77 people (57 cases, it was an ischemic stroke caused by a thrombus, on the 9th of bleeding as a result of an inflammation of the brain, known as encephalitis).

States, confusion, or mood disorders

But, apart from these, 39 patients are to be found in a state of confusion, or have had a sudden change of personality, and the 23rd was a true psycho, or saw the debut of their studies, before it is absent, at least at the level of practitioner) or a mood disorder. It is, of course, that it would be inappropriate to extend to all of those who have contracted the virus database (it’s not what you’ll find in the hundreds of thousands of people who have passed on the infection to the house, nor can it be ruled out that it was, in many cases, a pre-existing condition, who have been suddenly increased due to the storm, Covid-19. However, in the author’s note, and call attention to some of the experts interviewed in the Bbc story, it seems to be a number of consequences-specifically, it is the responsibility of the brain, at least a portion of the patient.

The coronavirus infects the brain

The causes of it, there are a number of possibilities. First of all, according to a study published in Altex, the results of a mini-unit on the brain both in vitro and called The Brain Ballscreated , developed, and patented (and, thus, is standardized and already in use for the experimental studies) of the Johns Hokpins University, Baltimore, maryland have confirmed that the virus infects the brain directly by crossing the wall of ships to protect it, called the blood-brain barrier. In addition to this, one of the hallmarks of the disease, there is a tendency to the formation of thrombi and platelet aggregates, which makes it all the more powerful with the after-effects of hyper-inflammation.

And then there are the living conditions of these people, they seem to be made in order to trigger illness, such as the one reported. One of the factors that must be that they increase exponentially the risk that there is, in fact, the lack of oxygen reaching the tissues, including the brain, the forced-air ventilation, heavy sedation, lack of sleep, prolonged immobility, lack of social relationships at the personal, hidden and under the protection of, as well as the use of drugs such as the sedative propofol, benzodiazepines, opioids, the in addition to the standard therapies, and those that are administered against the Sars-Cov-2: a mixture that is deadly.

When it comes to the crowd at the hospital

Many of the women, which is called the rave, is in the hospital, fortunately it is reversible, but it’s scary to those of us who live in it, as you will understand from a reading of the report of the press releases published in recent days by the New York Times, which also has a collection of testimonials from different patients. And so, in fact, reached in the absence of cerebrovascular disease or psychiatric disorders. In order to monitor the effect on higher cognitive functions, and the neurologist, a canadian, Adrian Owen, has released a set of data at the international level, to see if, over time, among the survivors, there will be consequences for cognitive impairments, such as dementia, however, did not emerge after the Sars and Mers, and to understand in general what will happen after the healing of the nervous system.
