Shock Syndrome is the leading cause of death in dengue fever. Of those who have died so far, 5 percent had dengue shock syndrome. This information is from the Government’s Institute of Pathology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR). The symptoms of Dengue Shock Syndrome are that the patient becomes unconscious due to bleeding and dehydration.
The director of the IEDCR, Professor Mirzadi Sabrina, said in the first light that the Dengue Death Review Committee has confirmed five deaths so far. Twenty-two died of Dengue Shock Syndrome.
The committee found that 1 out of these 3 people died of dengue hemorrhagic fever. It causes bleeding inside the body.
Last year, 20 people died of dengue. Four died of dengue shock syndrome. And five died of dengue haemorrhagic fever. Statistics show that the major cause of death for most dengue patients has changed. Last year, the main cause was dengue hemorrhagic fever, now dengue shock syndrome.
In comparison, no one can explain why dengue shock syndrome is more prevalent in patients. The IEDCR says dengue virus is now more prone to dengue-1. Its symptoms and complications are far more severe.
There are four types of dengue virus or serotype: DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-1 and DENV-3.
Initially infected with a single type of serotype, the body produces lifetime immunity. Dengue hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome can occur when later infected with another serotype. The IEDCR stated in their Dengue newsletter that it is unclear why some serotype variants are so severe than others.
A member of the unwillingness to be named on the death review committee said at first light that the common trend among patients who died of dengue shock syndrome was that they had come to the hospital for the last time.
The IEDCR death review committee received all the papers of 25 deaths. In it, they found that three of them had been infected with dengue for the second time.
In this situation, IEDCR has requested physicians to treat patients following the latest national dengue management guidelines. Director of the company Mirzadi Sebrina said, “Fluid management is a complex issue in the patient’s body. The guide clearly states how to do this. We are emphasizing the use of guidelines for that. ‘
Doctors say that dengue fever causes chest water in the chest and water in the lungs. Dengue does not become fatal if it is treated properly from the first and can be given the right amount of fluids.
In this regard, Professor Ahmedul Kabir, secretary general of Bangladesh Medicine Society, said in the first light that the issues facing the new situation are in the latest version of the guideline. Physicians have been trained in this regard and outside Dhaka. The ‘Pocket Guideline’ has been created to keep you close at hand during work.
ABM Abdullah, a UGC professor at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, has been treating dengue patients regularly for 25 years. He said in the first light, this time the condition of some patients is starting to get worse. One of the reasons is that the second time the number of dengue cases may be very high.
