You can breathe on your own but might be put on a vent while getting meds to strengthen/heal what the breathing issues are. Those decisions are on a case by cases basis.technomancer":29ct1yph said:Racerxrated":29ct1yph said:If a person needs a ventilator it’s because they cannot breathe on their own.

Yeah like LPMojoGL said, some have helped folks. Splatter had some breathing issues before going in and definitely would have needed one. I think a lot of folks can go without them for sure but for some, unfortunately it is needed.
Exactly. If you need a ventilator you are very seriously ill, and unfortunately the survival rate once you get to that point with this stuff is low.
With Covid it seems if you have weakened lungs to begin with, it attacks furiously and even with the patient on a vent the lungs never have a chance to get stronger as they are so deteriorated from the initial attack and since there really isnt a proven drug it just keeps going . Then there is the problem with infection. Vents are not really a long term solution and after a few weeks the chance for infection goes up and up over time. It just sucks that so many people dont understand just how bad this virus is. Good thing is Splatter was out and never felt much if any pain after a certain point.
There is a proven drug - Hydroxychloroquine. Many doctors have used it to treat Covid with great success. It is actually great for curing a lot of things.
Had to edit my post cause my original response was apparently too coherent for some.
Hydroxychloroquine unfortunately comes with serious side effects if your already weakened by Covid. It has been around forever for Malaria and works great for rheumatoid arthritis. As of this time there is no drug proven safe and effective for the majority of Covid cases.
