Probably still felt better than the last swab test I got ages ago. It made me almost pass out and puke at the same time. Taught me not to play with iffy partners.

You mean if we could get people to wear masks correctly. I still see a ton of people with their masks below their noses. It's like cutting the tip off a condom and still thinking you are safe I just can't figure it out.

Absolutely. Saw something recently that stated the nose was the primary portal of entry too. Also, a bandana isnít adequate, multiple layers are needed for a home mask.

DONíT have surgery if you can help it. Mortality rates for surgery in COVID patients are much higher, even those diagnosed up to 30 days post-operatively. In this report, a fourth of the patients had elective surgery, and overall 30 day mortality was almost 25% for all operations. Half of the patients had pulmonary complications.

That's terrifying because hospitals HAVE to get back to elective surgeries in order to survive

I had a friend with heart disease in the hospital twice during the Rona.

Just draining fluid but over a week each time. He was worried of course because it totally at risk, but is doing well.

Hope yours goes easy and your back home quickly.

Theyíre testing everyone before, sorta alarming about those diagnosed post op. Probably some of the emergency cases didnít have results back when they went to OR. The elderly were at highest risk. Wonder if local and regional anesthesia will make a resurgence. A surprising number of procedures could theoretically be done with lidocaine and versed. There are also some other techniques that donít require paralysis or mechanical ventilation. But yeah, if you canít replace hips and stuff itís going to be a tough year.

Weíre seeing Urgent Care visits pick up substantially. Weíre planning on a very busy winter for respiratory infections. Most likely weíll wind up running 8 rooms with full respiratory precautions just for respiratory complaints. Seems like that will bump worker risk in Urgent Care right up there with the ER.

Best of luck with the surgery and a speedy, coronavirus free, recovery.

Hey Snaggy / SLO

Maybe this has been covered.. been fucking at work so apologies if it has.

I got this.. and I bet it is rolling through peoples in box's.
The dude said he did not know if it is true but I would like to be informed and if not true let him know to NOT send it out to others.

Subject: From my attorney who is on the board of directors
at a NYC hospital: Just got this from Cornell:

FYI:
Information from Vienna’s laboratory studying COVID-19 say vast majority of people who died had ibuprofen/Advil in their system . . . . so do not take it !!

Those who recovered did not take ibuprofen so if you have symptoms, take Paracetamol only !!! Looks like this virus thrives on ibuprofen so don’t do it and tell everyone you can, not to !!!
