Re: New Diseases - Coronavirus

Thanks for the responses. CPR: yes it's valuable and sometimes effective but not often. Ok, I loosely misused "ventilation" to mean only invasive intubated ventilation. I think my meaning was clear from context, apologies if it wasn't. The point about invasive ventilation being needed when it's need...

Re: New Diseases - Coronavirus

The main point was to delay the use of ventilators which were in short supply. Unfortunately, once the patients are sick enough to need a ventilator, the prognosis isn’t good. I hope this conclusion is being applied by decision makers, both political and medical. Ventilators have become totemic in ...

Re: CHRISTOPHER BRUCE: The Mighty Spork

Ah, thanks Dr. Caligari! That makes good sense as an explanation of the sovcits' misinterpretation.

Not being into UCC in any way, I had no comprehension of that usage (whether correctly or incorrectly applied).

Re: Malaria Drugs, Antibiotics and Other COVID19 "Treatments"

One patient has been removed from the trial, not the whole trial has been ended. As you say. I'm baffled by Professor Émile Ferrari's comment quoted at the end of the article in Nice-Matin: Votre avis personnel sur ce cocktail?

Re: New Diseases - Coronavirus

The information coming out about the nature of the respiratory failure in Covid-19 is worrying (see articles linked above by Danraft and others). I think these are the key points: Covid-19 can lead to very low blood oxygen levels which usually (for non-Covid-19 conditions) indicate a need for mechan...

I'm so sorry. I agree with the others; don't stress out because you feel relief. She's at peace now. I felt the same way with my mom. Her last few years were so awful; even now, six years later, I think she would have been better off had a really nasty illness taken her two years sooner. It's two y...

Re: Malaria Drugs, Antibiotics and Other COVID19 "Treatments"

Of course you're right Dan; these are fast-moving times and the medical community must attempt to deliver present and future care as best it can. The ethics issue is one that, as far as I am aware as an outsider, is well-understood in the medical community. Many drug trials have been abandoned early...

In the hundreds of hours of coverage I've consumed, a well respected virologist did say there is some evidence that UV light (longer and more intense in summer) can kill common coronaviruses. This, of course, is a novel coronavirus so all bets are off. UV is generally harmful to all viruses and bac...
