Aim of the Study: The aim of this study was to study the circumstances of the risk of complications of a new coronavirus infection.
Materials and Methods: 148 patients with COVID-19 were examined, the patients were divided into 2 groups: the first group (60 people) had complications of coronavirus infection, and the second (88 patients) had no complications. The selection criterion was the presence of acute viral pneumonia and a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19. The age of the patients is from 29 to 89 years. The values of ferritin, C-reactive protein, D-dimer, as well as concomitant diseases of the patients were analyzed. The factors influencing the development of complications of COVID-19 were studied.
Results: Significantly more often, COVID-19 was complicated in patients with grade II-III arterial hypertension, chronic kidney disease, obstructive pulmonary disease and postinfarction cardiosclerosis, as well as in the group of patients with complications, higher values of C-reactive protein, D-dimer and ferritin were observed (p < 0.05).
Conclusion: The development of a complicated course of a new coronavirus infection is facilitated by uncontrolled arterial hypertension, myocardial infarction, chronic lung and kidney pathology, as well as an increase in the level of markers of inflammation and thrombus formation.
