Covid-19 patients need oxygen not ventilators studies show

Mortality could be as high as two thirds among patients with Covid-19 who require ventilation, new data from the United Kingdom's Intensive Care National Audit and Research Center (ICNARC) show.

    A UK report put the figure at 66 percent while a small study in Wuhan reported that 86 percent had died.

    In the past 48 hours or so there has been an important revelation: Covid-19 causes prolonged and progressive hypoxia (starving the body of oxygen) by binding to the heme groups in hemoglobin in ones red blood cells.

    The Associated Press reported that ventilators to treat Coronavirus patients may not be the answer to the pandemic as unusually high death rates have been witnessed in patients on ventilators.

    While around half of all patients with severe respiratory distress die while being on ventilators, some 80 percent or more of Coronavirus patients in New York City have died on ventilators, according to state and city officials.

    These higher-than-normal death rates also have been reported elsewhere in the US, according to Dr. Albert Rizzo, the American Lung Association’s chief medical officer.

    Emergency care doctor from New York City, Dr Cameron Kyle-Sidell, believes that ventilators are doing more harm and suggested oxygen as a superior treatment. He said the patients symptoms resemble High Altitude Sickness and not Pneumonia.

    Kyle-Sidell works at New York City’s Maimonides Medical Center. “I am a physician who has been working at the bedside of Covid+ patients in NYC. I believe we are treating the wrong disease and that we must change what we are doing if we want to save as many lives as possible.

    “In February, South Korean physicians reported that critical Covid-19 patients responded well to oxygen therapy without a ventilator. Patients are getting multiple organ damage from hypoxia. It’s not the pneumonia that’s the killer, it’s the cellular oxygen deprivation. And we are hurting these patients with ventilators,” the specialist said.

    Patients are losing oxygen in their blood and that is what eventually leads to deadly organ failures, not any form of ARDS or pneumonia. “All the damage to the lungs you see in CT scans are from the release of oxidative iron from the hemes, this overwhelms the natural defenses against pulmonary oxidative stress and causes that nice, always-bilateral ground glass opacity in the lungs.”

    “Patients returning for re-hospitalization days or weeks after recovery suffering from apparent delayed post-hypoxic leukoencephalopathy strengthen the notion Covid-19 patients are suffering from hypoxia despite no signs of respiratory ‘tire out’ or fatigue.”

    Thus UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was never put on a ventilator but actually received “standard oxygen treatment” according to The New York Times. Johnson was taken out of intensive care on Thursday last week. His condition is reportedly improving.

    The media for weeks has also been attacking President Trump for touting “unproven,” potentially “deadly” hydroxychloroquine as a treatment while hyping ventilators without ever questioning their effectiveness.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo even played up the city’s alleged need for 30 000 ventilators despite evidence that the overuse of ventilators could be one of the biggest mistakes of the Coronavirus crisis.

    Coronavirus patients who have been on a ventilator for “seven days, 10 days, 15 days, and they’re passing away,” Cuomo admitted, when asked about ventilator death rates during a news briefing on Wednesday.
