Patients who recovered from COVID-19
should post before and after photos of themselves in their battle
to let everyone be aware of how serious this pandemic is.
People who are stubborn and defiant of government lockdowns
should think twice and obey the rules.
If the picture above
doesn't convince you to stop your arrogance and stubbornness
in defying government rules during lockdown,
then hope this pic below will do.
This is what is said about the pic below.
This endotracheal tube was inserted into a patient with COVID-19.
It got to a point where mucus and secretions were so thick,
the RT (Respiratory Therapist) could not pass a suction tube (ballard) through.
The doctor did a "tube exchange"
changing out this breathing tube to a new one,
and this is what was inside.
This is what is inside of your lugs when infected with COVID-19.
If you get sick enough, this fills your lungs,
preventing any oxygen through your alveoli (air sacs) in your lungs
into your blood.
Without that adequate oxygen getting into your blood,
your tissues and organs begin to take a hit.
Your CO2 rises because it cannot exit the blood into the alveoli
and out your mouth during exhalation.
Your mental status becomes altered,
your body starts craving oxygen resulting in you breathing faster,
only to realize it doesn't help,
and you feel like your basically suffocating.
Then our amazing team of doctors, nurses, and respiratory therapist
get you on life support and start treating you
in hopes that you are one of our survivors.
OOHHHH and did I mention,
this all takes place while you are by yourself....
No mom, dad, brother, sister, wife, kids at your bedside.
No one to tell you love them.
No one to tell you they love you.
AND on top of this, if you have underlying conditions
such as obesity, diabetes, a smoker, hypertension....
no matter how young you are,
you could be the next one trying to cough up the same stuff
that's in this breathing tube.
This is not pictures taken off the internet.
These were pictures taken where I work,
by fellow doctors, nurses and respiratory therapist.
So wear a mask, stay home, stop having your house parties and gatherings
and shut up about "hurry, hurry, open the country up".
You look and sound ignorant because you have no idea
what is actually going on and what we are actually seeing.
What you all need to be doing is praying to God
that you, nor any of your loved ones catch this virus.
And lastly, if you're impatient for your city to reopen
and can't help but pour your ill-feelings out for your government
because your business is already ruined
or you need to work again because you can't survive any longer,
watch this video below.
Think of the possibility that this can happen to you
or to any of your loved ones, because who knows, right?
Anyone can fall victim, young and old.
And you'll never know who's gonna be near you
who's asymptomatic and can infect you.
So be obedient to your government.
