CORRELATION OF DEMOGRAPHIC PROFILE WITH LABORATORY PARAMETERS AND CLINICAL FACTORS AS PREDICTORS OF COVID-19 SEVERITY: A COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS
The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of understanding the various factors that impact disease severity and patient outcomes. Extensive research has unveiled the intricate relationship between laboratory parameters and the progression of COVID-19, offering vital insights for informed treatment decisions and a deeper comprehension of the virus. The wide spectrum of COVID-19, ranging from mild cases to severe, life-threatening conditions, highlights the urgent need for reliable methods to predict illness severity, crucial for risk assessment and efficient resource allocation, particularly for vulnerable populations. COVID-19 diagnosis relies on diverse methods, while laboratory techniques provide objective assessments of physiological and pathological changes induced by the virus. This study specifically investigates the connection between liver function tests and demographic factors with COVID-19 severity. By examining common laboratory tests and demographic elements like age, gender, and smoking status, this study reveals essential insights into their correlations with COVID-19 severity, particularly emphasizing the significance of liver function tests.
