What are vital signs and why do they matter for COVID-19?
Specific vital signs are impacted when there is an infection in the lungs, which can be caused by the COVID-19 virus. During lung infection, also known as pneumonia, inflammation reduces the ability of lungs to take up oxygen. This is reflected in abnormal oxygen saturation, heart rate, and respiratory rate.
For people who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, but who have not yet been diagnosed, vital sign measurements can help determine the best course of action, as recommended by top health professionals and organizations.
For those who have been diagnosed, monitoring vital signs from home helps health professionals decide when patients can continue to stay at home or when they need to go back to the hospital.
- Blood oxygen saturation levels drop.
- Heart rate increases due to lower oxygen levels.
- Respiratory rate increases as the body tries to get more oxygen.
Monitoring these three vital signs at home can help health professionals triage and make clinical decisions about care.
