AbstractCorona virus infection rapidly spreading and producing morbidity and mortality in all over the world over the past one and half year. The virus triggered immune system dysfunction leading to life threatening cytokine storm indicating severe forms of lung injury .Need to understand the clinical profile and risk factors leading to mortality is much needed .
Aim: To determine the clinical profile of patients having COVID 19 using the inflammatory markers at a semi urban center
Methods and materials: A retrospective study conducted on cases that were admitted in CAIMS during the period of 3 months, with CT chest grading CORADS > 3, COVID RT-PCR or rapid antigen test positive , pulse oximetre saturation less than 90%
Conclusion : 515 cases were taken into study ,clinical presentation was observed .Most cases were likely to have CT chest CORADS grading > 3 , inflammatory markers like LDH, Sr Ferritin, CRP have been elevated. Cases have shown high IL-6 , which was estimated selectively in cases with oxygen support suggesting cytokine storm.16.4 % cases showed mortality. This is attributed among cases with severe form of Covid 19.
