    Please Dr. Oz, interview Dr. Shiva!!!

  • C E says:

    Dr. John Campbell from England said that they are using CPAP machines and its less invasive for the patients. Why hasn’t anyone here said anything about this?

    • Ruzhki says:

      CPAP is enough for about half of the patients that otherwise needed ventilators, and they are much ezier, cheaper, faster to prododuce, so the big bottleneck is probably the ventilators.

  • Janet Airlines says:

    *what about the nyc trial? Why aren’t we hearing about it???!!!!*

  • Ideoform Sun says:

    The video clip was of an oxygen mask, not a ventilator.

  • infinatenik says:

    The pressure from ventilators expands the lungs opening up cells and receptors and the virus can spread to bigger areas do more damage, jthis is why Boris Johnson was not put on a ventilator.

    • robert koller says:

      infinatenik the virus moved through the body via blood. Expanding the lungs is causing barotrauma.

    • Vanessa Lennox says:

      This is probably why the people who isolate and get better by themselves at home end up living. I feel like people who go to the doctor end up dying because they use ventilators

  • nc3228 says:

    But no one explained it as clear as this doctor

  • Mae Kelm says:

  • Kathleen Bennett says:

  • Safi La says:

    thank you for covering this specific point and i look forward to the questions around minoroties and please explore if vitamin d levels being lower in minorities has a role to play

  • Rita Todd says:

    I have thought this from the beginning, having had 2 family members on a ventilator over the last 6 years, i am well aware of the pros and cons of long term vent use there are no pros.
