ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE:

To analyze the roles of multidisciplinary team (MDT) in the diagnosis and treatment of suspected cases of corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

METHODS:

The clinical data of 48 patients with suspected COVID-19 admitted in Jinhua Central Hospital from January 21, 2020 to March 20, 2020 were retrospectively analyzed.

RESULTS:

Of the 48 suspected cases, 18 were diagnosed with COVID-19, and 30 were excluded. Each of the confirmed cases were discussed among MDT for 2 to 12 times with an average of (4.7+/-3.2) times;while for non-COVID-19 patients were discussed for 2 to 4 times with an average of (2.3+/-0.6) times per case. With the guidance of MDT, one COVID-19 patient was transferred to designated provincial hospital after effective treatment;one patient complicated with acute cholecystitis underwent gallbladder puncture and drainage;and COVID-19 was excluded in a highly suspected patient after alveolar lavage fluid examination. Except one transferred patient, all 17 confirmed COVID-19 patients were cured and discharged;there was no cross-infection occurred in suspected patients during the hospitalization;there were no deaths and no medical staff infections.

CONCLUSIONS:

The efficiency of diagnosis and treatment for suspected COVID-19 patients can be improved under MDT mode, particularly for complicated and refractory cases.
