Abstract:
Background and Objective: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a global pandemic. The Philippines has its first confirmed case and mortality by the end of January, 2020. The aim of this paper was to define the clinical characteristics and outcomes of COVID-19 patients admitted at MDH. Materials and Methods: This was an observational study of all confirmed COVID-19 patients admitted at MDH between March to June 2020. The clinical profile, laboratory, imaging features and outcomes of included patients were described. Results: There were 124 patients included in the study. The median age on admission was at 47 years old, with male predominance. Fever and cough were the most common presenting symptoms. Hypertension was the most common co-morbid condition. Lymphocytopenia, elevated ferritin and LDH levels were the most common laboratory findings. Ground glass opacity was the most common chest CT scan finding. The most common complication was Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). The mortality rate was 16.9%. Conclusion: This study was done during the initial salvo of COVID-19 pandemic, when symptom presentations were protean and management approaches were based on the limited knowledge available at that time. The clinical manifestations are similar to those reported in the international literature with high mortality among those with ARDS. The management of the patients through time has progressed and continues to change as more valid data become available.
