Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an emerging global disease that severely affects a patient's respiratory system and requires respiratory supports through mechanical ventilation in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The disease has also had effects on the pediatric community, even though its symptoms are found to be milder in children. In this study, an 8-year-old child's health management report, infected with COVID-19, is presented. The patient had a critically ill condition without a previous history of respiratory disease and underwent mechanical ventilation in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). After performing the treatment protocols, the patient was discharged from the intensive care unit after 12 days with a good condition, without any side effects.
