What is Coxsackievirus (IgG)?


What is Coxsackie virus (IgG)?

Coxsackie virus is an enteric virus that is divided into two types, a and b, which generally spread in summer and autumn. Coxsackie virus is prevalent. It can infect humans through faecal and respiratory worm vectors, which can lead to viremia and affect all organs in the body. It mainly affects the meninges, heart, skin and muscles. Common Coxsackie A infections are more common in children. In addition, B virus infection is very easy to cause meningitis, myocarditis, fever, hepatitis, hemolytic anemia and pneumonia. Coxsackie virus can be transmitted to the fetus through the blood type through the placenta, so prevention is very important, especially for pregnant women.

What Coxsackie virus can cause?

Coxsackie virus can cause hand, foot and mouth disease, and it can also cause herpetic angina. Generally herpes angina and hand, foot and mouth disease are self-limiting diseases. Within a week or so, various symptoms can be alleviated and completely cured.

A few will have related complications. Children with complications may have sequelae. If not treated well, the diseases caused by coxsackie virus cannot heal themselves, so it should also be taken seriously.

Coxsackie virus-induced hand-foot-mouth disease and herpes angina may cause complications such as myocarditis, liver inflammation, meningoencephalitis and even brainstem encephalitis.

The most serious is brainstem encephalitis, which can cause severe hand-foot-mouth disease or herpes angina, which is likely to be life-threatening and must be taken seriously.


Coxsackie virus infection transmitted from family to group

Coxsackievirus B is an enterovirus. Coxsackie virus infection is more common and can be transmitted from family to group or from vertical to the fetus through the placenta. Determination of Coxsackievirus B antigen or antibody in serum is of certain value in the diagnosis of certain diseases. Coxsackie virus infection can cause aseptic encephalitis, myocarditis, pediatric pneumonia, diarrhea in children, muscle weakness, myalgia, dilated cardiomyopathy, pericarditis, ocular conjunctivitis, hand-foot-mouth syndrome, adolescent type 1 diabetes, pregnant women Early abortion, etc.

What are the Inspection considerations for Coxsackie virus?

Blood sampling is generally taken from venous blood. Except for special requirements, venous blood tests generally require blood sampling in the morning. Minimize exercise before blood sampling. Do not eat food. Keep an empty stomach and drink a small amount of water. The amount of blood drawn is generally 2-20 ml, and the maximum will not exceed 50 ml.

1. Fasting should be done after 8 pm on the day before blood drawing. Avoid drinking a lot of alcohol on the day before blood drawing. The alcohol content in blood will directly lead to increase or decrease in results.

2. Do not do strenuous exercise in the morning and sleep adequately at night before blood drawing.

3. Should not be too tired or violently stimulated by cold or heat before blood drawing.

4. Don't wear clothes with too tight cuffs, to avoid arm hematoma caused by tight sleeves after blood drawing or blood tightness.

5. When you draw blood, you should relax and avoid the contraction of blood vessels caused by fear, which will increase the difficulty of collecting blood.

6. Immediately release the fist after the blood is drawn, and press the puncture site with a sterilized dry cotton block. You need to press the needle hole and the area two centimeters into the needle for 3-5 minutes to stop bleeding. At the same time loosen the sleeves of the crotch to help stop bleeding. Do not rub the puncture site, so as not to cause “blood” in the local congestion, and do not touch the puncture site to avoid infection.

7. Take a 15-minute rest after taking blood, and sit or lie down to rest. Try to keep the blood drawing arm clean and sanitary within 24 hours after the blood is drawn, and do not take a shower or sauna. If congestion occurs locally, a wet towel after 24 hours can promote absorption.
