Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a viral respiratory illness caused by a coronavirus, called SARS-associated coronavirus. Initial symptoms are flu-like and may include fever, myalgia, lethargy symptoms, cough, sore throat, and other nonspecific symptoms. The only symptom common to all patients appears to be a fever above 38 °C (100 °F). SARS may eventually lead to shortness of breath and/or pneumonia, either direct viral pneumonia or secondary bacterial pneumonia.
HOW IS SARS DIAGNOSED?
The health care provider may hear abnormal lung sounds while listening to the chest with a stethoscope. In most people with SARS, a chest x-ray or chest CT show pneumonia, which is typical with SARS.
Tests used to diagnose SARS might include:
• Arterial blood tests
• Blood clotting tests
• Blood chemistry tests
• Chest x-ray or chest CT scan
• Complete blood count (CBC)
• Antibody tests for SARS
• Direct isolation of the SARS virus
• Rapid polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for SARS virus
HOW IS SARS TREATED?
Treatment for SARS is usually an emergency treatment. Antibiotic treatment is started immediately. Antiviral medicines and high doses of steroids are also given for patients affected with SARS.
