Indore: These were the findings of the forensic expert of Shri Aurobindo Institute of Medical Sciences Dr Pankaj Nema who accidently performed the autopsy of a ‘COVID’ patient.
“A 40-year-old man, resident of Nagda district, was declared dead in the hospital on May 6. As he didn’t have any medical history, police considered it a suspected death and we went through his post mortem,” Dr Nema told Free Press.
The forensic expert said he was surprised to see multiple blood clots in his lungs.
“There were multiple blood clots which turned black. Not only in the lungs but clots were found everywhere like in the heart, brain and other vital organs. When I asked the family members, they informed me that the deceased was suffering from fever for the last six days and had breathing issues as well. His blood reports also suggested increased CPR and other perimeters,” Dr Nema said.
He also added that he was surprised to see the condition of the deceased's vital organs affected severely in just six days.
“It might be due to the new strain or the variant of concern which is taking a toll on vital organs severely. Whatever be the variant, doctors must give anticoagulant drugs to avoid blood clots in patients’ bodies. This is also the reason patients’ suffering from COVID are succumbing to cardiac arrest,” Dr Nema added.
He also added that probably it might be the first case of autopsy on COVID patient in state or in country during the second wave.
