Coronavirus Patients Should Lie on Their Stomach and 500 Get Scuba Mask Ventilators

In Italy, 500 COVID-19 patients used ventilators made with scuba masks and a 3D printed connector.

One technique he said had yielded dramatic results was to have coronavirus patients lie on their stomach instead of on their back while on a ventilator. Oxygen level in the blood jumped by hundreds of percents.

In Padua, Italy the autoimmune medicine Tocilizumab has proven effective and there are positive results from the antiviral drug Remdesivir.

Sunday Morning Status in the World, New York and Italy

The global official count has passed 700,000.

At the end of Monday, the USA should have recorded 1 million coronavirus tests and the world will have recorded over 1 million official cases on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Italy has been on a plateau for new cases and should start seeing sharp declines in the days ahead.

  1. Alternatively, if the blood was currently at about 30% saturation, and it jumped to 90% saturation, then it would have jumped by 200% of the starting value.

    Except that I think (not a medical doctor) that 30% would kill you stone dead.

  2. It is obviously a typo at some level but you could supersaturate oxygen in the blood compared to normal atmospheric O2 levels and this would validly be an O2 level > 100% (of normal).

  3. A lot of things like that around: Long known medical techniques that just fell out of use for no good reason.

  4. You are in Italy right Luca? Glad you are okay. While I generally disagree with your commentary it certainly does add entertainment value to the forum. Hope you and your family stay safe during this trying time.

  5. They died due to Islamic extremism and the inability to govern themselves. The entire ME is like this except for Israel. Mexico sees ~30,000 deaths from narcos each year. Same issues as ME. Play with the bull, you get the horns.

  6. Oh good I was worried that we would stay on the topic of the pandemic.

    Personally i’m more concerned about what this virus will do to Iraq over the next two months but I understand that old folks have a tendency to get hung up on their pet issues.

  7. nobody cares about Iraq because they need a visa To leave Iraq and nobody want to give An Iraqi a visa… and nobody wants to go to Iraq either…

  8. “there are positive results from the antiviral drug Remdesivir.”
