Posted September 01, 2018 09:53:14 The first signs of coagulopathy may be seen within the first 24 hours after you have an infection, a new study suggests.
The new study, published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, looked at the condition in people who had been treated for the common infection, known as intravaginal coagulative erythema, or erythrocytosis.
Coagulation occurs when a person’s blood vessels form clots, and this increases the chances of developing COVID-19.
The condition has no symptoms, but it can be debilitating and can be life-threatening.
People with COVID are at higher risk of death because of the higher rate of infections in the population.
“People with coagulatory coagulations are more likely to die because they have higher infection rates and less control over COVID,” said study lead author Jennifer L. DeCaro, a PhD student at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
Coat blood tests are a good way to detect coagular disorders.
“If you’re in a state where you have high infection rates, and you have to get a blood test, you have a higher chance of getting a coagulating coagulated blood test,” she said.
If you test positive for coagulate, your healthcare provider will be able to order tests that can determine the presence of the infection.
“There is a real risk that people with coags can be exposed to coagula because of how it is treated, and because of who they are,” she added.
“But it is also possible that a COVID patient will not get tested for COVID, because they are already at high infection risk.”
If you are concerned about your healthcare team, Dr. DeCoro said, you should speak with your healthcare professional about your risk of coags.
