Ireland: ICU doctors speak out: Unvaccinated, even young….straight to ventilator…and rapid deterioration

IN A HOSPITAL UNDER STRAIN FROM THE EVER-INCREASING NUMBER OF COVID CASES IT HAS TO DEAL WITH, DOCTORS SAY THE SYSTEM IS ON THE BRINK AND LOCKDOWN LOOKS LIKELY

Irish Times: It is 9am on Thursday. Dr Sinead McArdle has just arrived to start her shift in the emergency department at Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, in Dublin.

“I would say at least 50 per cent of the [patients] coming through the ED are considered query Covid.” Some of those are “known Covid positive and are deteriorating”. And if they are unvaccinated “we can already plan their trajectory. We know it is going to be worse.”

Having done all her research, she decided to get vaccinated while pregnant – “my happiest day was the day I was offered my vaccine” – and she recently had her booster. There are currently young pregnant women in ICU at the Mater, and McArdle is anxious that others understand that the vaccine is safe and effective.

She suggests that if people who have chosen not to be vaccinated “could see what we see in the hospital, if the unvaccinated people could see how sick young people are getting – and not people with significant underlying health concerns – it would really open up their eyes.”

I ask her to tell me. She describes two patients presenting with similar respiratory symptoms; one vaccinated, the other not. Unless they have a major illness, the vaccinated person will “feel like they’ve had a head cold, they have a cough, they’ve got aches and pains”. Almost always, they can go home for rest, fluids and paracetamol.

The unvaccinated person is “going to be straight on oxygen. Sometimes their oxygen saturation is so low you’re looking at them and you’re thinking, Are their oxygen levels really that low? And then some will need oxygen via a noninvasive mask. Maybe a line in their neck, to give them certain medications, and a line into the artery in their wrists to keep a constant record of their oxygen and blood pressure. A proportion of those will go to intensive care and need intubation.

  1. I don’t care about the narrative, I never inject anything into my body, and I am not about to start now. I never drink a drop of alcohol or any type of drink that is not water. I never put my mouth or any part of my body anywhere it shouldn’t be. I have never been nor need to go to a doctor/hospital for the past 20 years of my life.

  2. Haven’t been on VT in a while. Just stopped by and what do I find but 2 pro-vax stories. Interesting….

    So the US federal government (Biden/OSHA) wants to coerce experimental vaccines on the entire population for a disease with a 99% survival rate. A disease where according to CDC data
    94% of all cases are in people over age 50,
    77% over age 65,
    55% over 75,
    29% over 85,
    and usually those folks have other diseases too, and now we are pushing the vaccines on kids.

    You don’t find anything odd about this situation?

  3. EXCLUSIVE: European Medicines Agency Data Shows 1,163,356 Adverse Drug Reactions and 30,551 Fatalities by COVID-19 Vaccinations

    The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is a decentralised agency of the European Union (EU) responsible for the scientific evaluation, supervision and safety monitoring of medicines in the EU.

    “The official European Union database of suspected drug reaction website is now reporting 30,551 fatalities and 1,163,356 adverse drug reactions from COVID vaccines Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, and AztraZeneca through November 13, 2021 based on the data submitted to its system.

    According to European Medicines Agency, an official website of the European Union, the data of adverse reaction from COVID-19 vaccines were posted in ADRreports.eu portal that “allows users to view the total number of individual suspected side effect reports (also known as Individual Case Safety Reports, or ICSRs).”

    All the data shown in the website and individual case report forms were taken from EudraVigilance, “a system designed for collecting reports of suspected side effects, used for evaluating the benefits and risks of medicines during their development and monitoring their safety following their authorization in the European Economic Area (EEA).””

    • Wellameena, just so you know, the Cult of Trump is not interested in evidence or facts. True-believers all, the more faith they place in Trump, the more resistant to facts, evidence or reality that contradict this belief.

      This, from the holy Book of Donald – “Faith in Me is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Who you gonna believe? Me or your lying eyes?”

  4. Anti-vaxxers keep forgetting that COVID-19 is a US bioweapon developed in a lab in North Carolina. It was first deployed in Wuhan most likely in November of 2019. The Chinese beat this thing, with deaths from the virus only 3.47 per million. Eventually, it was deployed in the USA where it has been wildly successful, 2,310 deaths per million. Why is this the case? Could it be that Trump has conned his crazy base into thinking that COVID-19 is a hoax and the vaccine for it is poison? This is true-believer stuff, no evidence or facts required.

    • Jimmy, I hear you, man. I have come to the conclusion that VT runs these articles with over-the-top rhetoric as wake-up calls to the BS being spread. I mean some of the stuff in some of these articles are so far off the mark as to be laughable. This article reeks of the same BS as the video done in my little town that was featured here on VT. It was total horse-hockey from the word go. Then again, there are the other articles here that expressly state the opposite…as in, what is really going on. For me, that is why they run these inane articles, to show the insanity of the ‘establishment’. At least that’s my take.

  5. Here’s a novel solution… Stop International Travel (SIT)
    coming from a person whose life was all about travelling elsewhere and being elsewhere for at least 7 months of a year before this pandemic
    Here’s another few whilst l do be feeling so inclined…
    Stop fighting each other.
    Keep your adrenaline levels down.
    Fast (try a few days of water, fruit and nuts) and go for walks anywhere. 30 minutes minimum on your own.
    Keep sugars, microwave food and take-aways down to a minimum
    Don’t let influences outside your sphere, control your behaviours and responses. Have courage
    Reclaim our spiritual lives and connectivity to the world, great/ small, seen/ unseen, known/ unknown
    Accept there are uncertain days ahead and plan/ visualise your path to achieve whatever goal you set yourself and navigate it. It’s a journey
    Do an honest days work/ service
    Turn off the news and TV for God’s sake and stop prophesying and debating Covid.

  6. We never had enough hospital beds before the pandemic. Our healthcare system was in shambles before the pandemic with waiting lists stretching back years. People died in hospital corridors due to overcrowding as response teams couldn’t move equipment through the corridors. Go to hospital here and you hope you don’t get sepsis or a nun telling you what kind of treatment God is willing to let you have. A huge percentage of healthcare workers are out on Covid leave
    Vasts amounts of money is wasted on specialists within the medical service that don’t do their jobs, vast overruns when building the infrastructures and barely any ambulances to answer calls and that includes the police not logging or responding to their callouts.
    We are in a pandemic and our government has bailed out the drinks industry. Our response to this pandemic has been nothing short of organised criminality. Our solutions to curbing this pandemic are non-sensible. We have turned poverty, homelessness and healthcare into big business. Charities are full of narcissistic psychopaths with the odd sexual abuser thrown in. Even our veterans associations overhere are full of narcissistic psychopaths who are protected as it’s easier to condemn the innocent than address the issues.
    One question: When did any government do anything that benefits the public?
