Covid, “intensive care begins to be in trouble”

The numbers are still sustainable, but intensive care is starting to struggle. And our goal is to operate in safety “. To tell Adnkronos Salute is Flavia Petrini, president of the Italian Society of Anesthesia, Resuscitation and Intensive Care Siaarti, member of the Technical Scientific Committee for the coronavirus emergency, who explains:” The numbers yesterday they speak of 323 patients in intensive care, but the data is fluid. If field hospitals are an emergency measure, we should be ready as quickly as possible. And in addition to identifying Covid hospitals in all regions, we would like to safeguard non-Covid routes “. The expert therefore appeals to citizens:” There is widespread transmission of the virus but still sustainable at the moment in Italy, we respect the measures and we prevent the virus from multiplying “.

“We are now seeing – notes Petrini – the effects of the superficiality of the summer. We must remain vigilant to allow hospitals to organize themselves. A complex operation, which does not end in setting up new beds in intensive care, but must take into account also of the need to train and distribute personnel. If some Regions are further ahead, also because they are more affected in the acute phase of the emergency, the goal is to avoid going into trouble in other regions, I am thinking of those in the South, less affected in the first phase, but now they must prepare “.

Petrini has recently concluded the truck tour in 8 cities and 7 regions, visiting the hospitals and experiencing the situation firsthand. “The summer was characterized by a great superficiality. It is now important to respect the measures, as well as download the Immuni App, to give the hospitals time to organize and prepare themselves”, he concludes.
