Yup, it’s one thing to be simply hooked up to a ventilator with a nurse only monitoring vitals

Vs have proactive doctors 24x7 monitoring and making adjustments to try different strategies to see any patient response.
Pulmonary critical care doctors are who are needed in these times.

What about if the ratio of ventilators to patients that need them not adding up at all??

What if we reach a stage where doctors making snap decisions when they see you "wasting" a ventilator because they think you aint gonna survive and pass it to someone else leaving you to meet yuh maker faster??

What if officials are telling family members that your loved one was taken of a ventilator because they felt he was good but it was the total opposite??

most we can hope for is for the people we have here to take and properly apply information and tips gathered from medial healthcare professionals around the world over the last 6 months

Friends,

Any reports of hospitals overcrowding with Venezuelans and our locals unable to receive medical attention?

Is that so surprising? What would anyone do if they were in the same position? Of course nobody was prepared for a pandemic and have ventilators stored up somewhere. There will be unfair decisions made and you can't satisfy everyone. Thus, it becomes even more critical to protect ourselves and especially our vulnerable family members, to reduce the likelihood of being on the receiving end of a harsh decision.

Our hdu and Icu numbers still fairly low to say that we don't have enough ventilators. Is either we have like 4 ventilators in the whole country or it have a lot more severe cases than being let on.

Found out today from the Dr when I went to collect my fit for work, if you come in for a covid test and your not looking sick they are no longer mandated (as of yesterday) to give you the 14 home quarantine. You will be tested and able to return to life as normal. Only if you show strong signs and symptoms then you will be placed in home quarantine until your results come out. So imagine the amount of asymptomatic people gonna be able to mix and mingle with the general public....

They must be reach the stage of faith and praying.

Whoever hadda get it will get it and who hadda die hadda die.

Private hospitals have ventilators and dealing with covid patients? Like someone with proper medical insurance. If they get sick they getting private care or gonna be sent to public?

the rule is you get sent to govt facility
i don’t think private hospitals want to deal with covid either, they aren’t really setup to deal with this level of contagious disease, it will throw their entire operations out of whack

Prone positioning . Yup the open eyes in one go and up and about like in young and restless ICU scenes. To reach there in the first place you are starting at the back of the survival class. In other countries the Icu admissions still not doing great and the weakest stock already died off
