Respiratory functional profile of children with COVID-19 during the hospitalization phase
Keywords:Child; Hospitalization; Disease impact profile.
COVID-19 is a disease derived from the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which affects all age groups in a mild, moderate or severe manner and which may require hospital care. The main signs and symptoms are similar to flu or cold. In children, cough, fever, respiratory distress, nausea, vomiting and changes in pulmonary auscultation are common, such as crackle and snoring. A lower incidence of cases in children is find over the world and the justification for this is widely discussed. This work is justified by the current pandemic period, which aroused the interest in investigating the respiratory functional profile in the pediatric population at Sergipe Emergency Hospital, in order to promote discoveries about the clinical manifestations of COVID-19 in children, as well as their complications. The general objective of this research was to establish the functional respiratory profile of children with COVID-19, admitted to pediatric service at Sergipe Emergency Hospital. This is an observational, analytical, cross-sectional and field study, with a quantitative approach, accomplished from July to September 2020. It was observe that the most patients needed oxygen support, they were secretive and evolved with pneumonia. There were not discrepancies in the findings in relation to signs and symptoms presented by adults, however it was show that the disease occurs in a lower incidence and in a milder way.
