The pill that saved the life of a woman in a coma

A nurse who spent 28 days in a coma following a Covid infection fighting for her life was rescued after doctors gave her Viagra as part of an experimental treatment regimen, according to Daily Mail.

Monica Almeida, 37, of Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, the mother of two asthmatic children with two doses of the vaccine, was hospitalized on November 9 after being tested positive for coronavirus on October 31.

She was transferred to intensive care a week later, before doctors put her in an induced coma on November 16.

Ms. Almeida says there were only three days until the fan stopped, when her condition began to improve and she woke up on December 14th.

When she woke up, doctors at Lincoln County Hospital revealed that she had been given a high dose of viagra as part of an experimental treatment that she accepted before she went into a coma.

The medicine for erectile dysfunction allows a greater flow of blood in all areas of the body by relaxing the walls of blood vessels, and Ms. Almeida says that it made her condition improve in just one week and the level of oxygen she needed to decrease half as her airways opened.

“I made a little joke with the doctor after I recovered, because I knew him. She told me it was Viagra, I laughed and thought it was a joke, but she told me “no, really, you took a big dose of Viagra. It was my little Christmas miracle,” she told The Sun.

The respiratory nurse, who works for NHS Lincolnshire and was born in Portugal, tested positive for the virus for the first time in October.

Despite receiving two doses of the vaccine, she lost her taste and smell and coughed up blood on the fourth day of infection.

After visiting the hospital, when her oxygen levels dropped, she was discharged – but soon after, she was rushed to Lincoln County Hospital because she could not breathe.

As her condition deteriorated, she was taken to the UPU where she was placed in a medical coma on November 16.

The nurse was so ill that her parents were advised to fly out of Portugal to say goodbye.

But in the eleventh hour, doctors decided to use the unusual treatment previously suggested as a way to treat patients with Covid, as it dilates the blood vessels and opens the airways.

She came out of a coma in time for Christmas on December 14 and was allowed to return to her family on Christmas Eve.
