Author(s): Dr. Chakravarthy GS Srigiri and Dr. KC Muraleedharan
Abstract:
Background: Corona Virus disease (Covid-19) rapidly spreading pandemic was initially found as a cluster of severe pneumonia cases in December 2019 reported in Wuhan, Hubei province, China. Infection with the virus, can be asymptomatic or mild to severe symptomatic disease causing Acute viral pneumonia like symptoms leading to fatality in the least possible time if untreated. The pathological cause of this is severe coagulopathies in the microvasculature primarily in the lungs causing hypoxia and later multiorgan failure. Though thrombolytics play an important role, it fail to recover the patient completely, and if so may have thrombolytic effects in other organs too which lead to complications. Selection of Homoeopathic similimum may be practically difficult in such acute condition in an ICU setup but Homoeopathy Remedies which act primarily on thrombosis phenomenon along with affinity on pulmonary organs need to be selected and administered as an adjuvant therapy for beneficial results. Primarily the Tissue remedies like Kali mur, Natsulph, Ferrum phos, and remedies like arnica, Arsenic album, Ammonium Carb, animal Remedies from Ophidia group are found to be effective equally in thrombolysis and prevents further complications.
Objectives: The primary focus of this article is on causation of coagulation mechanism in Covid-19 disease, resulting in multiorgan failure and scope of Homoeopathic Medicines as Adjuvant therapy in preventing thromboembolic complications.
Methods: Method: Information was obtained from the latest articles on coagulation mechanism in covid-19 research articles and importance of Homoepathic medicines in preventing coagulation. Homoeopathic remedies were chosen from the latest Articles, various original literature and Repertories and their physiological pharmacological and Homoeopathic action on prevention of the formation of thrombus and their role in effective thrombolysis is explained.
Conclusion: The COVID-19-associated coagulopathy (CAC) are distinct from those seen with bacterial Sepsis-Induced Coagulopathy (SIC) and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). The CAC usually shows increased D-dimer and fibrinogen levels with minimal abnormalities in Prothrombin time and platelet count. Homoeopathic remedies are proved to be effective in thrombolysis can be thought of primarily as an adjuvant to conventional treatment for an early recovery.
