  1. So I have run ventilators for over a quarter of a century as an RRT-ACCS. The second I heard 30k ventilators needed in NY, I called bullshit. You dont just attach someone, and move on - you need someone to manage it, and I rarely run more than 5 at a time (12 once during tornado outbreak), as there are active things that must be done. A large urban hospital may have 60, and only need to rent more on very rare occasions (17-18 flu season). Cuomo still hasnt even exhausted his state supply, let alone tapped the donations. This isnt polio, where someone completely relies on it indefinitely - they generally recover or pass away. It happens in a week or so, then a ventilator becomes available. Dallas has a count - look up dallas mayor ventilator count. The numbers are much less than you think... If someone has stage 4 cancer, the flu, and another virus, it makes no sense to prolong death; it is important to understand this. So many times people leave a loved on on a ventilator until they die when there is zero chance to recover, and they are in constant pain. Infections pile up when death nears, and the body gives out. People die - some FROM covid, while many more WITH covid. Tracked every year, we could find that years nasty cold (human metapneumovirus, adenovirus, coronavirus) in many flu deaths (flu + cold is worse than flu alone). The patients we are seeing now look like the ones we see every year who are at the end of life (copd, obese, cancer, hiv, als, etc.), and this puts them over the edge. Plus, we ALWAYS see a few normally healthy patients who die unexpectantly from what seems a minor infection (the news combs for these now). ALL THESE DEATHS WERE MORE THAN LIKELY TO HAPPEN COVID19 OR NOT... Our hospitals are empty as we 'keep our powder dry' for this, and we are losing money as the supposed peak keeps on getting pushed back. Heart surgeries are being delayed as are other important procedures. This virus hit travellers and healthcare workers months ago before we tested, yet the projections act as if it just arrived with the 1st cases in WA and CA. By then it was well circulated in the US population. The numbers will be revised in the next year, and the pattern will be the same: the more blue the state, the higher the panic. The real risk of this - even for elderly, is low; only 1 in 1000 sick people get bad enough to seek hospital care (I dont ever even go to urgent care as waiting rooms are covered with other infections). That is where these numbers start, not the ones you see on cnn. Remember that physicians are sued all the time, so they wont break with what the state is sending out. We need to get back to work and make sure people who are sick stay at home from now on (and mask when they must leave the house). Wash your hands often. The next big thing will be which party did more to save you before the elections... Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  2. 2 stolen from parking garage at UTSW in last month. Apparently just need a screwdriver. The first thing they do is disable onstar pulling down headliner to antenna. Gotta get me a kill switch... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. Already leveling (hospitalizations doubling every 6 days instead of 2-3) with intubations decreasing. You cant pay big lib handouts without tax money coming in, and Cuomo is pointing that out. The walk back begins... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. People die in hospitals every day, all day long. Not surprised to see a nyc hospital over run according to ny times; that yellow journalism rag changes headlines to influence opinion - I soooo miss journalistic integrity. They said they were short on supplies well before the outbreak btw. The German death rate now is 0.4% since they do mass RANDOM testing, not the crackpot CDC/Italian `just test the sickest' philosophy (I could show you 99mpg on my burb if I took a small enough sample). They need to fire everyone at the CDC for this quackery, and strip their medical credentials. Open up the small businesses - its not fair when so many `essential` things are open allowing spread. Small businesses can limit exposure just as well...
  5. I have come to the same conclusion. Good in the mud, but crappy at 80mph, loud and slippery when wet. Hate to say I like the buttery ride from stock michelin energy savers vs look of RGs. Im returning while I can get full refund from amz. Really liked the look though... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. Its impossible for China not to have had hundreds of millions infected - millions were bolting wuhan weeks before the shut down jan 23. This has not just begun. Testing just began, but the virus has been around us for months now infecting almost everyone. You will be told this later. Stop watching the news (just stick with local for weather). They are not correctly testing all people - only the sick - and they are assuming a virus somehow waited until now to start spreading (maybe it hung out at the viral lounge). Gotta see bright side. I got in on a nice energy fund a few days ago, and its doing really well. Gotta love driving to work in this post Thanos snap traffic with gas at a bone fiddy. Pollution is way down helping to keep copd patients off the edge and out of the hospital. Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  7. There is the panic way which new york is doing, and there is the pragmatic way like we are doing in Texas. Ill take TX every day. Todays newest panic piece from ny times talks about running out of vents, then you read the story, and they "almost did" but were replenished by other hospitals. Vents are rented all the time in flu season which is mainly over. Why do you think a positive covid = sure ventilation and death? WAY more people are infected than the numbers show, and most need to do nothing. This is swine flu 2, and honestly, it just has to run its course... Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  8. Really, you know? You know nothing but what you are fed. Tell me what you know about mechanical ventilation. ALL HOSPITALS are waiting for this phantom menace that barely shows (unless you are in a scared state). NOBODY HAS RUN OUT OF VENTILATORS. Its a cold, and you are a FOOL media "cleaner." You cant handle the truth or 30k vents, because you dont know what they do... Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  9. Great video - he explains it all very well although you cant round down to 1 for the flu from 1.3 - small increases make a massive difference, especially almost 1/3rd more... Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  10. Not turning blue, but getting purple. Too many emigrants from blue states cant seem to stop voting to screw themselves - its a way worse disease than the mild flu-like coldvid19... Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  11. The idiot NY mayor is doing nothing but spreading fear. They need 30k ventilators!? I guess they will tube anyone who sneezes. Stupidest thing I have ever heard. HE BETTER BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR SPREADING THAT BULLSHIT! COLDvid isnt going to need even 100 EXTRA vents compared to what already happens every single january (remember, somehow we have enough vents for the 50k deaths every year from flu and that season is ending). A ventilator costs $30-40k and is more sophisticated than any other hospital device save CT or MRI scanners - no company can just start cranking them out in a week. There is a pattern of fear mongering in certain states and municipalities - can you spot the pattern? Think about it when you vote, as I am convinced someone with an ax to grind has their finger on the panic button in the CDC... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. The average age of covid death in Italy is 81. Life expectancy there is 82. Seems they are counting every death as a covid death no matter how they actually die... Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  13. It is interesting how people talk about this curve. It is valuable if you know when and where the original outbreak began and are able to measure everyone infected from that single point (its a lab mice model). But if the source came from multiple points at multiple times, AND isnt measured until AFTER most of the people have been infected (with or without symptoms), its just a useless textbook picture... Imagine just starting to test right now for this years seasonal flu; you would see a rapid incline from zero, but you are actually at the end of this years cycle. 4-6k deaths would appear quite alarming, but considering 45k have already died, it is a false trajectory. The cdc says 60 million a year get the flu in the US with only a fraction testing positive, yet covid is only counted by positive tests? I have full confidence, covid19 will have infected over a billion people worldwide making the death toll much more in line with the flu if not less since children are not affected near as much. Wuhan is a very polluted city in a communist country, while Italy is showing an average age of death from covid19 at 81 years (seriously?). See the 2011-14 articles reviewing the 2009 H1N1 outbreak for information on this (not the newer stuff as it is biased as hell like everything these days)... Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  14. Currently, only the sickest patients are being tested, which of course skews the %; do that with the common cold and you will shake in fear. The post mortem on this whole outbreak in the coming months will expose it as the biggest overestimation of all time with permanent damage to the credibility of the medical community. Mark my words... Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  15. The flu needs nothing else to kill you. This and flu - in rare cases - fill alveoli with fluid causing hypoxia needing mechanical ventilation or ECMO. You can catch the flu when you have coronavirus. You can catch hiv when you have bacterial pneumonia. You certainly can catch bacterial pneumonia with coronavirus. There is no sickness that fends off another sickness. In fact, having any infection opens you to other infections, and deaths most often occur with multiple infections - its the straw that breaks the camels back... Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
