Abstract

ZHU, Juanjuan et al. Clinical characteristics and therapeutic procedure for a critical case of novel coronavirus pneumonia treated with glucocorticoids and non-invasive ventilator treatment. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2020, vol.53, e20200227.  Epub June 01, 2020. ISSN 1678-9849.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0037-8682-0227-2020.

The novel coronavirus pneumonia (NCP) outbreak occurred in Wuhan, China at the end of 2019. Here, we report the clinical characteristics and therapeutic procedure for a case of severe NCP. The patient was started on glucocorticoids and non-invasive ventilator treatment. After treatment, the patient’s symptoms improved, and the status was confirmed as NCP negative. Our results may provide clues for the treatment of NCP.

Keywords : NCP; Glucocorticoid; Non-invasive ventilator.
