Hi!!!!Its of prime importance that the blood levels are maintained within its normal range especially the platelets. The platelets drop very fast in dengue and hence platelet transfusion becomes very much necessary.
Now that she is in risk of Dengue Shock Syndrome,watch out for warning signs
:Persistent and intense abdominal pain
,Lethargy and restlessness
,Bleeding inside the body veins(development of red spots,echymosses etc in the body).
Sweating and prostration occurs when there is circulatory failure in dengue hemorrhagic fever, wherein pulse pressure goes down to â 20 mm Hg. In DSS the liver enzymes are elevated and the liver may become tender.When the symptoms of DSS are detected early and required treatment is given the cases of fatality is reported to be low but once the state of shock sets in mortality is reported to be relatively higher.
Aggressive IV fluid transfusion to correct electrolyte imbalance
is the main stay of treatment of DSS and ofcourse platelet transfusion.
