From Dr. Joseph Mercola
Since COVID-19 first entered the scene, change of concepts has mainly been outlawed. By sharing my views and people from varied specialists all through the pandemic on COVID remedies and the experimental COVID jabs, I grew to become a predominant goal of the White Home, the political institution and the worldwide cabal.
Propaganda and pervasive censorship have been deployed to grab management over each a part of your life, together with your well being, funds and meals provide. The key media are key gamers and have been instrumental in creating and fueling concern.
I’m republishing this text in its authentic kind so to see how the development unfolded.
Initially revealed: Could 6, 2020
In latest weeks, a number of docs and revealed papers have famous that COVID-19 sufferers who’re placed on ventilators have an elevated threat of demise.1 April 9, 2020, Enterprise Insider reported2 that 80% of COVID-19 sufferers in New York Metropolis who’re positioned on ventilators die, inflicting some docs to query their use.
In response to The Related Press,3 “Comparable reviews have emerged from China and the UK. One U.Ok. report put the determine at 66%. A really small examine in Wuhan … mentioned 86% died.”
Up to date New York Metropolis Statistics
An April 22, 2020, examine revealed in JAMA describing the outcomes for five,700 sufferers hospitalized with COVID-19 within the New York Metropolis space reported:4
“Mortality charges for many who acquired mechanical air flow within the 18-to-65 and older-than-65 age teams had been 76.4% and 97.2%, respectively. Mortality charges for these within the 18-to-65 and older-than-65 age teams who didn’t obtain mechanical air flow had been 19.8% and 26.6%, respectively. There have been no deaths within the younger-than-18 age group.”
These numbers had been amended shortly thereafter, although. April 26, 2020, CNN Well being reported5 that a median of 24.5% of sufferers positioned on ventilators died, in comparison with about 20% of those that weren’t ventilated.
Karina Davidson, senior vice chairman of analysis at Northwell Well being, informed CNN her crew had determined to “make clear the wording of the report,” and that the figures are being up to date to replicate “what number of [patients] we all know have had an final result and what number of stay within the hospital.” CNN defined:6
“The unique report in JAMA said that 12% of sufferers required air flow and of them 88% died — however these numbers solely represented a minority of sufferers whose final result was identified, not the whole physique of sufferers. The up to date numbers embrace all the sufferers, together with those that remained within the hospital on the time the information was gathered on April 4.”
In an April 8, 2020, article, STAT Information reported:7
“What’s driving this reassessment is a baffling remark about COVID-19: Many sufferers have blood oxygen ranges so low they need to be lifeless. However they’re not gasping for air, their hearts aren’t racing, and their brains present no indicators of blinking off from lack of oxygen.
That’s making vital care physicians suspect that blood ranges of oxygen, which for many years have pushed choices about respiration assist for sufferers with pneumonia and acute respiratory misery, may be deceptive them about learn how to look after these with COVID-19.
Particularly, increasingly are involved about using intubation and mechanical ventilators. They argue that extra sufferers may obtain easier, noninvasive respiratory assist, such because the respiration masks utilized in sleep apnea, no less than to start out with and possibly in the course of the sickness.”
Oxygen Is Wanted however Air flow Could Be Inadvisable
Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell, whose video is featured on the high of this text, has famous their sufferers’ signs have extra in frequent with altitude illness than pneumonia.8 Equally, a latest paper9 by Drs. Luciano Gattinone and John Marini describes two various kinds of COVID-19 shows, which they discuss with as Sort L and Sort H.
Whereas one advantages from mechanical air flow, the opposite doesn’t. Dr. Roger Seheult discusses this paper, in addition to the comparability of COVID-19 to excessive altitude pulmonary edema or HAPE, within the MedCram video above.
Within the remaining evaluation, it might end up that ventilators are inappropriate for a majority of sufferers, and docs at UChicago Drugs report10 “really exceptional” outcomes utilizing high-flow nasal cannulas in lieu of ventilators. As famous in a press launch:11
“Excessive-flow nasal cannulas, or HFNCs, are non-invasive nasal prongs that sit beneath the nostrils and blow giant volumes of heat, humidified oxygen into the nostril and lungs.
A crew from UChicago Drugs’s emergency room took 24 COVID-19 sufferers who had been in respiratory misery and gave them HFNCs as a substitute of placing them on ventilators. The sufferers all fared extraordinarily properly, and solely one among them required intubation after 10 days …
The HFNCs are sometimes mixed with susceptible positioning, a way the place sufferers lay on their stomachs to help respiration. Collectively, they’ve helped UChicago Drugs docs keep away from dozens of intubations and have decreased the possibilities of unhealthy outcomes for COVID-19 sufferers, mentioned Thomas Spiegel, MD, Medical Director of UChicago Drugs’s Emergency Division.
‘The proning and the high-flow nasal cannulas mixed have introduced affected person oxygen ranges from round 40% to 80% and 90%, so it’s been fascinating and fantastic to see,’ Spiegel mentioned …
‘Avoiding intubation is vital,’ Spiegel mentioned. ‘Most of our colleagues across the metropolis will not be doing this, however I positive want different ERs would check out this method intently.’”
Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Method
One other much less accessible and extra difficult therapy technique that’s displaying promise is called extracorporeal membrane oxygenation or ECMO. The system includes a posh circuit of tubes, filters and pumps that oxygenate the affected person’s blood and take away waste merchandise exterior the physique earlier than pumping it again into circulation.
Steering12 for using ECMO in COVID-19 therapy was revealed March 30, 2020, within the ASAIO Journal. As a normal rule, ECMO is advisable for comparatively younger sufferers with few comorbidities who’re failing to answer ventilator therapy. In response to an April 24, 2020 press launch by the College of Michigan:13
“As of April 21 … greater than 470 sufferers with suspected or confirmed instances of COVID-19 have been handled on the ECMO facilities which are sharing their information. Most had been males of their 40s and early 50s. Almost half had weight problems and one-fifth had diabetes.
Most of these positioned on ECMO for COVID-19 are nonetheless on the therapy, which might take weeks to permit the physique to get well sufficient for the affected person to operate on their very own. Each second of that point, sufferers should be beneath the care of groups of educated nurses, respiratory therapists, technicians and physicians …
Sufferers should get evaluated by an ECMO middle and transferred earlier than their situation worsens an excessive amount of. They need to not have been on a ventilator greater than seven days earlier than beginning ECMO, which signifies that they need to be thought-about for ECMO quickly after the choice to intubate them is made.
‘Regardless of the substantial assets required to look after sufferers on ECMO, we consider that is an acceptable technique for chosen sufferers which are in any other case at imminent threat of demise,’ says Jonathan Haft, M.D., medical director of U-M’s ECMO program.”
Hyperbaric Oxygen Remedy
Sadly lacking from the standard dialog is using hyperbaric oxygen remedy (HBOT) which I consider may be a superb therapy methodology. As famous by Dr. Andrew Saul, editor-in-chief of the Orthomolecular Drugs Information Service, in “A Evaluate of Useful Antiviral Methods”:
“Making the oxygen accessible in a manner that is acceptable to the severity of the affected person is the reply. We have now to do not forget that our physique is singularly good at taking in oxygen or we would not be right here. And our lungs have an enormous quantity of absorptive area. I imply, that is what they do. It is simply a unprecedented system that we have now.
Oxygen goes in by diffusion. You do not push it in; the physique sucks it in as a result of you probably have extra oxygen exterior than you do inside, it simply goes via. All you do is give a number of absorptive floor. And for those who flattened out all of the little alveoli within the lungs, you’d have an unlimited space …
So, by offering the oxygen after which see if the physique will take it up, you have made step one. That may be achieved preventively by contemporary air and train and going out and taking part in …
If anyone wants extra oxygen, and also you wish to give them slightly strain, if that makes the affected person higher, then you definitely do it. However the concept that you have to ram this oxygen like a supercharger on a Mustang is, I feel, slightly bit, let’s assume, business pleasant …
[The alveoli] are tiny, tiny little sacks. They’ve among the thinnest little membranes you have ever seen. Take a look at them beneath a microscope. They’re very delicate. So, the very last thing you wish to do is add damage to insult.”
Mechanical air flow can simply harm the lungs for the truth that it’s pushing air into the lungs with power. Throughout HBOT, alternatively, you’re merely respiration air or oxygen in a pressurized chamber, which permits your physique to soak up a better proportion of oxygen.
There’s no airflow being pressured straight into the lungs. HBOT additionally improves mitochondrial operate, helps with detoxing, inhibits and controls irritation and optimizes your physique’s innate therapeutic capability. You possibly can study extra about this in “Hyperbaric Oxygen Remedy as an Adjunct Therapeutic Modality.”
HBOT Trials for COVID-19
We might ultimately hear extra about this, nevertheless, as NYU Langone Well being is presently recruiting COVID-19 sufferers for a examine utilizing HBOT. The examine was posted April 2, 2020. As detailed on ClinicalTrials.gov:14
“It is a single middle potential pilot cohort examine to guage the security and efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen remedy (HBOT) as an emergency investigational system for treating sufferers with a novel coronavirus, illness, COVID-19 …
The affected person will obtain 90 minutes of hyperbaric oxygen at 2.0 ATA with or with out air breaks per the hyperbaric doctor. Upon completion of the therapy the affected person will then return to the medical unit and proceed all customary of care …
After the intervention portion of this examine, a chart evaluation will likely be carried out to match the outcomes of intervention sufferers versus sufferers who acquired customary of care.”
Chinese language docs additionally report “promising outcomes” after treating 5 COVID-19 sufferers with HBOT. Two had been in vital situation and 5 had been extreme. As reported by the Worldwide Hyperbarics Affiliation:15
“Hyperbaric oxygen was added to the present complete remedies being carried out on the hospital for COVID-19 affected sufferers, with a dose of 90-120 minutes at therapy pressures of 1.4 to 1 fi.ATA.
The outcomes had been very encouraging as these 5 sufferers acquired important therapeutic advantages, together with speedy aid of signs after the primary session.
The rationale for including this process is to assist fight the progressive hypoxemia (low blood oxygen ranges) that COVID-19 could cause. Hyperbaric oxygen has the flexibility so as to add a considerable provide of additional oxygen into the bloodstream …”
Hospitals Are Main Transmission Websites of SARS-CoV-2
On this video, taped April 17, 2020, Dr. John Ioannidis discusses outcomes from three preliminary research. Importantly, he factors out that nosocomial infections — infections that happen in hospital settings — look like half and parcel of why the COVID-19 mortality charge is a lot larger in sure areas, equivalent to Italy, Spain and the New York metropolitan space.
A standard denominator between these areas is an enormous variety of hospital personnel who’re contaminated with SARS-CoV-2 and unfold it to sufferers who’re already in an immune-compromised state.
“Hospitals are the worst place to struggle the battle with COVID-19,” he says. “We should always have achieved our greatest to maintain individuals away from the hospitals if they’d COVID-19 signs, except they’d actually extreme signs.”
In essence, by having so many individuals unnecessarily going to the hospital out of concern, a hospital-chain of infectious transmission was allowed to develop. Many may merely have been handled at house.
These findings spotlight the necessity for very stringent an infection management measures in hospitals, to keep away from transmission from asymptomatic personnel to sufferers. In addition they spotlight the necessity to extra fastidiously assess your want for medical care.
Ioannidis stresses that individuals experiencing gentle to average signs of COVID-19 shouldn’t rush to the hospital, as they merely improve the danger of infectious transmission to personnel and different extra weak sufferers.
He additionally cites information displaying hospital personnel have an estimated 0.3% probability of demise from COVID-19, which is considerably decrease than the three.5% initially cited by the World Well being Group. He additionally factors out that this and different information level to COVID-19 having a fatality charge very near that of seasonal influenza.
This, he says, is sweet information for hospital personnel who’ve been working beneath very distressing circumstances, many fearing for his or her lives. Because it seems, such fears look like vastly exaggerated and uncalled for.
Sepsis Is a Widespread Complication in COVID-19
Whereas treating gentle to average signs at house could also be advisable, it’s necessary to remain vigilant to indicators of sepsis.16 If COVID-19 signs worsen and indicators of sepsis develop — described in “Recognizing the Indicators and Signs of Sepsis” — speedy medical care is required.
Until promptly identified and handled, sepsis can quickly progress to multiple-organ failure and demise. Sepsis is liable for 20% of deaths worldwide every year, and the cytokine storm response related to sepsis additionally seems to be a main manner by which COVID-19 claims the lives of those that are immunocompromised and/or aged.
In response to a March 11, 2020, paper17 in The Lancet, 59% of the 191 Chinese language COVID-19 sufferers within the examine developed sepsis, and sepsis was current in 100% of those that died. It was essentially the most generally noticed complication, adopted by respiratory failure, ARDS and coronary heart failure.
