A new study shows COVID-19 survivors have twice the risk of developing dangerous blood clots flowing to their lungs, compared to people who have never been exposed. They were also said to be twice as likely to experience respiratory symptoms.

A large study conducted by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that one in five adults aged 18 to 64 and one in four people over the age of 65 had a health condition related to the effects of COVID-19.

Among all the health conditions analyzed, patients are most at risk of developing acute pulmonary embolism, a clot in the pulmonary artery increases the most. Two symptoms that appear are chronic cough to shortness of breath.

Pulmonary embolism usually travel to the lungs from a vein, and can cause serious problems, including lung damage, low oxygen levels, and even death.

This study was based on more than 350,000 records of COVID-19 survivors from March 2020 to November 2021, associated with 1.6 million people in the control group who had required medical care in the same month with similar cases such as complaints of pulmonary embolism but were not diagnosed with COVID. -19.

The team analyzed 26 clinical conditions previously associated with long COVID-19. Patients were observed for one month regarding complaints experienced, from the rarest to the most common.

The most common conditions are respiratory symptoms and musculoskeletal pain. In patients under 65 years of age, the health risk to COVID-19 survivors was increased for most types of conditions, but no significant differences were observed for cerebrovascular disease, mental health conditions, or certain substance disorders.

“The severity and duration of the COVID-19 illness may affect the health care needs and economic well-being of patients,” write the authors.

“The occurrence of incident conditions following infection may also affect patients’ ability to contribute to the workforce and may have economic consequences for survivors and their dependents,” as well as adding to the burden on the health system.

Limitations of the study include the fact that data on sex, race, and geographic area were not included in the study, nor was vaccination status available. This study also did not take into account the newer variants.
