An assess­ment for a per­son who has COVID-19 and is at risk of an occlu­sion in a blood vessel

This page has been updat­ed on May 2nd 2022

The fol­low­ing ques­tions are used to assess if you are at a high­er risk of an occlu­sion in a blood vessel.

1. Use of med­ica­tion that inhibits the coag­u­la­tion of the blood

If you use any of the med­i­cines that are list­ed below which inhib­it the coag­u­la­tion of the blood, you are pro­tect­ed against the risk of an occlu­sion that a coro­n­avirus infec­tion causes.

If you do not use any of the above-men­tioned med­i­cines that inhib­it the coag­u­la­tion of blood, you may be at risk of devel­op­ing an occlu­sion in con­nec­tion with a coro­n­avirus infec­tion. Begin by check­ing your symp­toms and then the risk factors.

2. Symp­toms or pregnancy/childbirth  

Are any of the cri­te­ria that are list­ed below met in your case:

If none of the above-men­tioned cri­te­ria are met in your case, you do not need to do a fur­ther assess­ment of your sit­u­a­tion. If you have a mild infec­tion, med­ica­tion that pre­vents occlu­sions is not needed.

If at least one of the above-men­tioned cri­te­ria are met in your case, con­tin­ue to 2.2 and con­tin­ue doing the assessment.

2.2 Risk factors

Do you have at least one of the risk fac­tors that are list­ed below (sig­nif­i­cant risk of an occlusion):

OR

Do you have at least three of the risk fac­tors that are list­ed below:

OR

If you are ≥ 60 years old AND are main­ly in bed rest for over three days.

3.  Instruc­tions – What Should I Do?

If you have any of the symp­toms described in point 2 (see above) or you are preg­nant or have giv­en birth less than six weeks ago and you have at least one of the risk fac­tors list­ed in the first group (sig­nif­i­cant risk of an occlu­sion) or you have at least three risk fac­tors list­ed in the sec­ond group or you are ≥ 60 years old AND are main­ly in bed rest for over three days, con­tact an infec­tious dis­eases nurse (phone 040 804 2781, Mon­day — Sun­day 10 am – 2 pm).

How­ev­er, please note that the ques­tions that are asked here are used for screen­ing and you do not nec­es­sar­i­ly need med­ica­tion to pre­vent occlu­sions even if you have risk factors.

Dur­ing a coro­n­avirus infec­tion, the risk of an occlu­sion can be reduced by:

Con­tact the health care ser­vices imme­di­ate­ly if you have symp­toms of a an occlu­sion, such as pain in a leg or an arm or in the chest or short­ness of breath, a headache that gets worse, symp­toms on just the oth­er side of the body or pain in the abdomen.

Those who belong to a risk group should con­tact health­care pro­fes­sion­als more read­i­ly than oth­ers. Risk group includes
