According to the Quran, the rules for qurbani for children state that it is not mandatory or wajib on a child who has not reached puberty. However, if the child’s guardian is giving a share on behalf of the child then the child must follow the rules before Qurbani.

Covid-19: What Should You Do Initially When the Oxygen Level of Your Body Flows Down? 0 65

One of the biggest harms of Covid-19 in the human body is that many patients have low oxygen levels in their blood. A healthy person’s blood oxygen level should be 90 to 100 percent. Hence, the real problem starts when oxygen goes below 90 percent. That’s why doctors advise the covid-19 affected people to measure the oxygen level with a pulse oximeter every day on a regular basis. And the oxygen measurement process with pulse oximeters is very easy and simple. If the oxygen level is too low, then the condition is higher critical and the patient needs to be given oxygen through high flow nasal cannula supervised by specialist doctors.

What Happens When Oxygen Decreases in Blood

Generally, Pulse Oximeter is as handy as to check the oxygen level in blood any time. But there are other ways to find out the lack of oxygen in blood without using pulse oximeters.

If the oxygen level is low in blood, the head may feel dizzy, the body may feel weak, breathing may be difficult. Many can become unconscious.

When the oxygen level in the blood drops below a certain level, the brain also lacks oxygen which is very dangerous. Breathing problems and lack of oxygen to the brain are the biggest concerns.

Necessary Tips to Follow While Oxygen Level Reduces In Blood Below 90%

Loosen the Clothing

Majority face trouble breathing in tight clothing. Many people can’t breathe comfortably as such clothes are tight along the chest that prevents the lung muscles from expanding.

And if the body is already in a deficient oxygen condition, then even ordinary clothing can cause pain while breathing. When oxygen is depleted in the body of a covid-19 patient, loosen the dress at the very beginning.

If you are wearing something tight, take it off. Take off your underwear and tight fit pants. Also remove the face mask as the mask can also be responsible for creating difficulty in breathing.

No Rush Needed

No one should rush if the patient is alone or if someone else is helping him/her.

All the organs of the body need oxygen. Walking and even eating something increases the body’s demand for oxygen.

So stop walking and stay calm. Refrain from eating anything.

Lay Upside Down

Lay the patient upside down on the bed. The patient needs to lie on chest and keep trying to take a deep breath slowly.

It is beneficial because a large part of the lungs are located on the back of the human body. As a result of lying on the chest, the back part of the lungs gets enough oxygen easily. At least corona patients can get some benefit from this technique.

To reduce the breathing issue, it’s also suggested to lay on the right side for at least 30 minutes and upto 2 hours. And also sitting in (30-60) degree angle with a back support can be useful to breathe partially.

Breathing Exercises

To keep the lungs healthy, doctors are now advising everyone to do some efficient lung exercises.

This advice is also given to healthy people because coronavirus infects the lungs. Patients with covid-19 can also perform breathing exercises if they have difficulty in breathing.

Learn a very simple breathing exercise. Breathe deeply through the nose at a long length. Hold the air in the lungs for seven to ten seconds or as long as possible and slowly exhale. This exercise needs to be done several times.

Say ‘No’ to the Crowd

Avoid too many people near you if you have difficulty breathing. Crowds can reduce oxygen and increase carbon dioxide in your home. Keep the windows opened to maintain the natural air flow in the house.

These tips may offer you temporary relief if you have mild problems.

Arrange High Flow Oxygen

If the situation worsens then there is no alternative but to provide oxygen. In that case, the wise decision is to take the patient to the hospital or bring the oxygen cylinder home. Of course the patient should be treated at home with the help of a trained guy. 

If any critical condition occurs, for example high flow nasal cannula oxygen system may be needed, then don’t waste time at home. Shift the patient to the hospital immediately. If needed, try to arrange an ICU bed on emergency basis.

Forgo the Panic, embrace the Awareness!
