In a jaw-dropping article published by the Wall Street Journal, (Hospitals Retreat From Early Covid Treatment and Return to Basics) physicians admit to ventilating patients who did not need it as a step in their protocol - get this - not as a treatment that was likely to benefit the patient, but rather as a fruitless and callous way of attempting to stop the spread of COVID-19. Yes, euthanizing humans is illegal. Especially for the benefit of other patients. It should feel awful. If you are a doctor who has been persecuted for doing the right thing, perhaps you lost your license or it is being threatened, send this Wall Street Journal to your lawyers - and thank you for not acquiescing to the demands that you kill patients on ventilators and with strong sedatives.
During the first weeks of the COVID-19 "pandemic" in 2020, when nationwide protocols were setup to be used in hospital settings, some frontline doctors began to question the practice of putting COVID-19 positive patients on ventilators, because so many of them were dying, and these doctors made it clear that they were dying from being wrongly placed on these ventilators. In other words, the ventilators were actually killing them, in many cases by collapsing their lungs. But the hospital protocols never changed, mainly because hundreds of millions of dollars from the U.S. Government and The CARES Act passed by President Trump, gave financial incentives for companies to produce more ventilators, and for hospitals to use them. All of that money would have been lost if they changed the hospital protocols. President Trump enacted the Defense Production Act in order to give government funds to manufacturers to produce ventilators, and gave $1.1 billion to GM and Philips to mass produce ventilators. ProPublica reported how one of those companies, Philips, had already received $13.8 million five years earlier from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to produce low-cost ventilators to stockpile in the case of a national pandemic, but when COVID hit, there were none to be found. And now earlier this week, FierceBiotech is reporting that Philips has been recalling about 5.5 million of their ventilators for the past year-and-a-half, because the ventilators are faulty and are killing and injuring people. The recall began after Philips received dozens of reports describing how the polyester-based polyurethane foam used to muffle sound and vibrations in many of its respiratory devices could break down over time, sending potentially dangerous chemicals and debris into the airway—though documents submitted in court have since revealed that Philips knew about the foam breakdown issue at least a few years before beginning the formal recall.
Front Line Medical Workers Speak Out on COVID19 Treatments: “Patients are Left to Rot and Die – This is Murder”
Medical personnel working on the front lines of the COVID-19 response are increasingly speaking out about what they are seeing and experiencing, which they claim is a completely different narrative from what the corporate-sponsored media is portraying. Many of them fear to reveal their identity or location, because there are claims that those who speak out are losing their jobs. This presents a dilemma for truth seekers, as in those situations one has to take what is being said at face-value, and make a judgment call as to whether or not what is being claimed is true or not, without being able to directly verify the reports. There are, however, some doctors who have identified themselves, and we have covered some of these doctors, and will review their claims again at the end of this article. They have reportedly received ridicule and attacks as a result of going public with their information. To add to the problem of trying to access and understand this information, social media tech giants Facebook and Google (via YouTube) have publicly stated that they are actively removing content that they deem "fake news" and that generally does not fit the narrative that the corporate media wants to spin. This past weekend, a woman who is identified as "Sara P." and claims to be a "licensed and certified" nurse, posted a video on Facebook where she claims that she is speaking out for a friend of hers who is a nurse that traveled to New York to work on the front lines of COVID-19 treatment, and was appalled by what she saw, and therefore wanted to expose what she was seeing to the rest of the country, but she feared identifying herself or the place where she was working. She encouraged everyone to share the video so that it would go "viral." Her Facebook account has since been apparently deleted, but there are still copies of her video on YouTube. We present one of those here. Another video that recently was published on YouTube is from a respiratory therapist. This man recorded his testimony while wearing a mask, and did not reveal his identity or location. He too talks about the problem with ventilators. However, the hospital where he works apparently saw his video and pressured him to take it down. Some copies remain online, and the copy we are publishing below has received over 173,000 views since April 19th.
This past weekend (April 5, 2020) Health Impact News published a video plea from a NYC physician treating COVID19 patients in the ER and ICU units, claiming that what he was seeing was that patients were doing worse when put on ventilators. He stated: "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. We don’t know where we’re going. We are putting breathing tubes in people and putting them on ventilators and dialing up the pressure to open their lungs. I’ve talked to doctors all around the country and it is becoming increasingly clear that the pressure we are providing may be hurting their lungs. That it is highly likely that the high pressures we are using are damaging the lungs of the patients we are putting breathing tubes in… we are running the ventilators in the wrong way…. COVID-19 patients need oxygen, they do not need pressure." Yesterday, April 8, 2020, reporter Mike Stobbe of the Associated Press wrote an article stating that many doctors are now moving away from using these ventilators due to the "unusually high death rate" of those put on them. His report was picked up by many of the large corporate "mainstream" media outlets. Stobbe reports that normally 40% to 50% of patients put on ventilators die, but with patients tested positive for COVID19 that number jumps up to 80%. These mechanical ventilators are a huge business right now during the COVID19 crisis. President Trump forced General Motors to produce 30,000 of them and sell them to the government at "cost" for a reported $489 million. Billing for services rendered to use ventilators in the hospitals is also very high, with non-surviving patients who need mechanical ventilator services ranging from $27,000–$39,000 per patient.
NYC Doctor in ER and Critical Care: Lung Injuries Caused by Ventilators – “We’re Treating the Wrong Disease!”
A New York City physician who says he is working as an ER physician in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) treating COVID19 patients, took to YouTube to explain that he believes patients with COVID19 symptoms are being treated incorrectly with mechanical ventilators, and that the ventilators are doing more harm than good. "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 short, I believe we are treating the wrong disease, and I fear that this misguided treatment will lead to a tremendous amount of harm to a great number of people in a very short time… I feel compelled to give this information out. COVID-19 lung disease, as far as I can see, is not a pneumonia and should not be treated as one. We don’t know where we’re going. We are putting breathing tubes in people and putting them on ventilators and dialing up the pressure to open their lungs. I’ve talked to doctors all around the country and it is becoming increasingly clear that the pressure we are providing may be hurting their lungs."
