Resumo

AUDLEY, G G et al. Prolonged treatment of COVID-19 pneumonia with high-flow nasal oxygen: A story of oxygen and resilience. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2020, vol.110, n.12, pp.1168-1171. ISSN 2078-5135.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/samj.2020.v110i12.15325.

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed significant strain on the oxygen delivery infrastructure of health facilities in resource-constrained health systems. In this case report, we describe a patient with severe COVID-19 pneumonia who was managed with high-flow nasal oxygen for 40 days, with an eventual successful outcome. We discuss the oxygen delivery infrastructure needed to offer this intervention, as well as the psychosocial impact on those undergoing treatment.
