The outcome of oxygen therapy on desaturated patient with moderate to severe symptoms in Kogabwilhan II Indrapura Field Hospital


Background: Since the first outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in late 2019 in Wuhan, the SARS-CoV virus has grown rapidly and spread around the globe. The virus invades respiratory epithelium, causing inflammation and damage to lung cells, which causes impaired gas exchange and leads to a desaturated state. Kogabwilhan II Indrapura Field Hospital in Surabaya was an initial emergency hospital for asymptomatic and mild-symptomatic COVID-19 patients. Due to the massive surge of COVID-19 cases in East Java, it had to treat moderate and severe symptomatic patients.

Aim:  The study aims to report clinical prognosis post-COVID-19 infection. 

Method: This is a retrospective descriptive study in Kogabwilhan II Indrapura Field Hospital with desaturated COVID-19 patients from March 2020 to October 2021 as samples.

Results: Of 471 admitted COVID-19 patients with desaturation, 36.9% were moderate-symptomatic, and 63.9% had severe ones. All patients received oxygen therapy and multivitamins. Then, 29.7% of patients were cured, while 70.3% were referred. 48.4% of referred patients were bonam, 10.2% were pronounced deceased, and 11.7% were unknown.

Conclusion: Most patients declared cured after being referred to another center.
