According to new research led by the University of Cambridge, one out of every hundred patients suffering from Kovid-19 has undergone ure puncture lunge, providing further complex treatment for those affected. </p><div><p>Symptoms of a pneumothorax or 'punctured lunge' include shortness of breath and sudden chest pain, which is exacerbated by deep breathing during a cough associated with Kovid-19.
A perforated lung allows air to drain out and get trapped outside the lung and chest wall, which eventually leads to the collapse of the organ under accumulated pressure.
According to the new study, published in the European Respiratory Journal, chronically young men or patients with underlying lung disease were at risk of suffering a perforated lung during treatment with severe Kovid-19 infection (they were already at high risk Are also considered before infection with coronavirus).
The researchers behind the study used data from 16 hospitals and consulted colleagues from across the UK who reported similar findings.
“We started seeing patients affected by a perforated lung, even those who were not put on ventilators,” Says Professor Stefan Marsinić from the Cambridge Institute of Medical Research.

Researchers noted an overall rate of 0.91 percent of patients with puncture lungs suffering severe Kovid-19.
However, even those patients who do not fall into the risk categories can cause puncture lung damage, which warns Markinak, as many incidents of perforated lungs were diagnosed. “by coincidence.”
Nearly two-thirds of patients who had lung injuries survived but researchers recorded only 42 percent survival rates for patients over 70.
Women were three times more likely to suffer lung disease than men, presumably from a growing body of research indicating that men are more severely affected by severe Kovid-19 than women.

In addition, survival ability and recovery rates were also lower in patients with abnormally acidic blood, although the condition, known as acidosis, usually stems from an already existing poor lung function.
Researchers suspect that severe Kovid-19 infection can cause ulcers in the lungs, which can cause tears and puncture in the external tissue. Some evidence of this has been found in observations made in X-rays and CT scans in the last few months.
