Background: Parrot fever is a zoonotic bacterial infectious disease caused by chlamydia psittaci. It is often caused by direct or indirect contact with infected poultry. Human infection usually manifests as pneumonia, which is rare in clinical practice. We reported a patient with severe pneumonia caused by parrot fever and described her treatment and care to promote recovery.
Methods: To report the nursing experience of a patient with severe pneumonia caused by chlamydia psittaci during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Results: During the COVID-19 pandemic, patients with similar symptoms to COVID-19 were subjected to rigorous screening and differential diagnosis. We used metagenomic sequencing to detect Chlamydia parrot and diagnosed pneumonia caused by Chlamydia parrot infection. We provided airway management, oxygen therapy, enhanced nutrition and skin integrity management, and prevention of infection based on the patient's specific circumstances. At the same time, due to the strict management policy of COVID-19, the patient could not be accompanied by his family in the emergency intensive care unit. Therefore, we also paid attention to the psychological situation of the patient and provided psychological care.
Conclusion: This case with severe pneumonia caused by parrot fever should pay attention to airway management. Based on doing an excellent job of basic nursing, psychological nursing for this case lacking accompaniment should be strengthened to promote the rehabilitation of this case.
