Should Christians use/trust ventilators?
-Are Ventilators for COVID-19 Doing More Harm than Good?
-Are Ventilators really safe?
-Republican Minnesota state Senator Scott Jensen told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that Medicare pays hospitals 3 times as much if patients are placed on ventilators.
‘How can anyone not believe that increasing the number of COVID-19 deaths may create an avenue for states to receive a larger portion of federal dollars,’ Jensen later posted on his Facebook page.
In a YouTube video posted earlier this month New York emergency room doctor Cameron Kyle-Sidell said: ‘I’ve talked to doctors all around the country and it is becoming increasingly clear that the pressure we’re providing may be hurting their lungs.
‘It is highly likely that the high pressures we’re using are damaging the lungs of the patients we are putting the breathing tubes in.
‘It’s not our fault. We didn’t know,’ added Kyle-Sidell, saying that is the way other acute respiratory syndromes have been treated.
‘We are running the ventilators the wrong way,’ he said, calling for the protocols to be changed.
‘COVID positive patients need oxygen, they do not need pressure. They will need ventilators, but they must be programmed differently.’
