One of the methods being used to treat Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) patients at American hospitals is to hook them up to ventilators, which are designed to automatically move air in and out of the lungs. But this approach seems to be failing, as a whopping 88 percent of coronavirus patients on ventilators at New York’s largest hospital system end up dying.
Editor’s note: It’s likely because the ventilators are killing the patients. They’re damaging the patients’ lungs with forced respiration while ignoring the real issue of oxygen deprivation due to impaired hemoglobin function.
A paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reveals that while 20 percent of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) patients die overall, a substantially higher number – nearly all, to be clear – who are put on respirators end up not surviving. This suggests that perhaps ventilators are causing death rather than preventing it.
Another thing worth pointing out is that many Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) patients who are supposedly dying from pneumonia are actually dying from oxygen deprivation, which is a direct consequence of the damage caused by improper ventilator use.New York reports 88% death rate among coronavirus patients put on ventilators – Dr. Eddy Bettermann MD
