Interned three weeks ago in a hospital in Rio de Janeiro, the condition of the father of Romeu and Gael worsened on Friday (2). In a statement released to the press, the press office said that Paulo Gustavo “had to undergo therapeutic readjustments to combat Covid-19”. The team reported that he had improved, with positive pulmonary recovery, but had to evolve to ECMO therapy (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation) after his clinical condition worsened.
According to “UOL”, Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation is a technique used in people with cardiovascular or pulmonary failure. The therapy relies on the use of a pump to circulate blood through an “artificial lung” outside the body, and then return to the bloodstream. This technique has been used in critically ill patients being treated for Covid-19.
