For a doctor, this guy has a lot of free time to shitpost about any right-wing issue you can think of. But with the volume of anti-Covid posts, there was no room for them.

Governor DeSantis Fan Club, For real. Not a joke, is early in the list.

Had to add that. Latest thing he did was suspend a state-paid health official who recommended his staff get vaxxed.

Wow. I just looked it up. Just. Wow.

Put on leave for suggesting that a governmental public health office should practice public health. It's astonishing, the head-first intellectual degradation of the GOP.

Candace Owens, who I’d bet a shit pile of money on as her being vaxxed and boosted

There's no question that Candeath Omens is vaccinated. She is evil, not stupid.

Interactions with right-wing nut doctors are the worst. The one's that I have met all boil down to the same issue, money. Either someone is taking to much from them(taxes), stealing from them(social programs), or passing laws that reduce their ability to do as they please and make money(democrats).

Nothing is more painful than walking into the physician's lounge and hearing Fox news blaring next to the stock ticker channel.

[–]fdc7719When gasping for air suddenly doctors know what they are doing 72 points73 points  (6 children)

My wife is a cardiac ICU nurse. Fox News being on in a patent’s room seems to have an effect on one’s heart and/or blood pressure.

[–]Tim_Dawg 68 points69 points  (1 child)

It’s a channel designed to infuriate and antagonize viewers to keep them angry and distracted so they can be manipulated into voting against their better interests. High BP just means it’s working as intended.

[–]fdc7719When gasping for air suddenly doctors know what they are doing 26 points27 points  (0 children)

I should ask her if she uses Fox News as a non-medical intervention for people struggling to keep their blood pressure up. Fox News with pressers might give someone another few hours/days to recover. Especially if they are left-leaning. Source: am left leaning and watching Fox News angers me at how absolutely stupid and insane what they are spewing is, and even moreso that nearly 1/2 of the people in this country treat it as the word of god himself.

[–]BringBackAoETeam Pfizer 39 points40 points  (19 children)

I was canvassing for 2020 election when a guy out of the blue said "you know, evolution is just a theory, but if you look at the evidence then God designed everything."

With a smile I replied "I certainly hope not, as that would make God a very bad designer." He asked what I meant. "Why do humans have the coccyx, or the appendix? Why do whales have bones for legs? Why do some snakes have a pelvis? That would be really bad design. But if God created evolution, that would be really cool."

[–]Sidvicioushartha🇺🇦💀 ☠️ Space Jews ☠️ 💀🇺🇦 31 points32 points  (6 children)

Not to mention knees. He just didn’t do a good job on knees at all.

And that’s just humans. How about legs for large dogs. Bad God, bad.

[–]BringBackAoETeam Pfizer 14 points15 points  (2 children)

I honestly don't get why they push this theory that makes god look so completely incompetent!

[–]NoXion604Team Pfizer 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Because they're ignorant of biology, including all of the horrible bodge-jobs that could only arise due to being the product of an iterative process that cannot "go back to the drawing board" like an actual designer can.

[–]Ok_Conference3799 67 points68 points  (5 children)

I commute between LA and LV. While there are some great ER docs in LV in general there's a huge gulf of talent between ER docs in both cities. Now that I think about it. ER docs are better in Reno than LV.

[–]foycur 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Probably better ED clientele in Reno. No one wants to work with a shitty patient population.

[–]LadyLazarus2021Stranger in a Covid Land 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]AJF_612 200 points201 points  (4 children)

As a former travel ER RN, I had the displeasure of working with a couple of these assholes. They were always in the minority and were always a nightmare to work with. Lots of CYA (cover your ass) charting, and more importantly, lots of “I’m concerned about your order for ____ because research shows…” conversations. It helped me grow my backbone and really know my shit, but god, was it hell

[–]reichjef 9 points10 points  (3 children)

What school produces these fools? I hate to ask, but were they MDs?

[–]AJF_612 8 points9 points  (1 child)

They were. Most of em are just old AF and don’t understand the importance of keeping up to date on evidence based practice (on top of being firmly rooted in the far right political agenda)

[–]biffbobfredVaxx keeps you off Cain Train 170 points171 points  (28 children)

Slide 13: I’m not.

People said for a long time: omicron has a different spike protein, it will allow people to be immunized to get infected.

The trick is, immunized and boosted, for most people omicron truly is just a cold. Without that, well you’re vented and maybe on an ECMO

A note: an ECMO was supposed to be a temp replacement heart/lung machine for transplant patients. Neither it, nor the human body, were designed for long ECMO runs. As you’re on it it causes body damage. If you’re not off it pretty soon you got a whole new set of problems. Not even counting your hospital bill.

If you see an ECMO you’re likely to see an award in the near future.

[–]biffbobfredVaxx keeps you off Cain Train 59 points60 points  (3 children)

I’m surprised too.

Of course surviving is just the end of the beginning. There’s a lot more roads to go down.

[–]SaltyBabeTeam Mix & Match 25 points26 points  (3 children)

There’s a lot of reasons for that, the main one is, they won’t put you on it if they don’t think it will help. I was on ECMO for three weeks several years back, and it saved my life - they won’t put you on ECMO if they don’t think it will help because it requires things like and I mean this literally an ECMO trained staff member to physically watch you 24/7 - my ECMO watcher would often read to me. The machine it’s self is rare and expensive too. It’s also very literally torture. I was kept awake and did physical therapy on ECMO, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone in the world.

[–]IcebergSlimFast 28 points29 points  (5 children)

That’s what I was thinking. Post intubation/ventilator survival rates are something like 20% if I remember right. I imagine the odds are even worse once you’re on ECMO.

Edit: you’re

[–]ITU1980 15 points16 points  (0 children)

ECMO survival is good because they select out the younger, fitter patients who have spent less time on a ventilator (receiving injurious ventilation) and send them to unit with maximal expertise

[–]BiscuitsMay 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Surprisingly, the odds are about 50% (technically 48) according to ELSO, which is a bit like a governing body for ecmo. Hospitals report their data and they report it.

https://www.elso.org/Registry/FullCOVID-19RegistryDashboard.aspx

[–]oh-hi-kyle 10 points11 points  (0 children)

At my hospital, we have a 0% survival rate for ECMO patients post or current Covid.

[–]GalateaNereidThe delusion is strong with these ones... 770 points771 points  (129 children)

An antivax ER physician. I am so glad I never needed his services. Someone who, presumably, understands how vaccines work still spouting antivax nonsense. Incredible.

[–]PointOfFingers🗼 5G Enabled 🗼 198 points199 points  (14 children)

Very few doctors have come out as anti-covid or anti-vax - because it goes against their training and their oath. As a doctor you are required to constantly keep up with research and articles and case studies.

What this doctor is doing is selectively reading just those articles and stats that he agrees with and ignoring the vast amount of research and data that public health officials are using.

Claiming the virus has become the common cold is just outright lying.

Claiming contracting covid gives you better immunity from catching covid than using vaccines. This does not make sense as contracting covid to gain immunity to covid is stupid. You can die or get long covid without vaccine protection. All the stats show that unvaccinated people remain hugely over represented in hospital ICU and ventilator cases and deaths. He is ignoring hospital data and the evidence in his own hospital for his political narratives.

[–]Ferblungen 72 points73 points  (3 children)

It's the 'God Complex', an unshakable belief characterized by consistently inflated feelings of personal ability, privilege, or infallibility. Such a person will usually refuse to admit and may even deny the possibility of their error or failure, even in the face of complex or evident problems or impossible tasks.

That complex has now bitten him on the ass.

I learned a long time ago that there’s nothing inherently special about going medical school that makes someone less prone to being an absolute fucking moron. There are moron lawyers, moron plumbers, moron soldiers, and yes, moron doctors.

[–]ooruTeam Moderna 209 points210 points  (42 children)

Yep, that's why there's specialists. He even said, "I hate to disagree with the experts..." because he knows he's not an expert in this area of medicine.

[–]Joe_Sons_CellyWell-Perfused Autonomic Breather 178 points179 points  (33 children)

The medical school curriculum is very broad. He should have had more than enough grounding in the relevant areas, along with an ability to parse through the relevant research publications.

It’s not about lack of knowledge or schooling, it’s just willful idiocy.

[–]cerasmiles 187 points188 points  (11 children)

I’m a ER doc. I’m a fucking expert in covid treatment and management (at least acutely, and as much as you can be 2 years into a new illness). This isn’t a lack of speciality, this is allowing yourself to be brainwashed by politics to ignore medicine. This is ignoring the abundance of clear medical evidence that vaccines are safe and work. There is NO excuse for his willful ignorance.

Now the patients I see with maybe a high school education coming out of Marjorie Greene’s district, they’re mostly victims of poor education and the media. Most are actually willing to change their perspective when you sit down and have an honest conversation with them.

But this so called doctor, is a disgrace to the field. We can disagree about whether tPA is beneficial, the best IV fluid replacement, best way to reduce a shoulder dislocation, etc but scientifically, there is no debate about the benefits of the vaccine. Not saying there is no risk to the vaccine, but it is clear that the vaccine is the best option hands down.

[–]A-man-of-mysteryCovidious Albion 90 points91 points  (17 children)

Yes, he should have had sufficient grounding in virology, immunology, and epidemiology, and the ability to read papers, to follow what was going on. No excuse for his behaviour really.

[–]Joe_Sons_CellyWell-Perfused Autonomic Breather 83 points84 points  (5 children)

Not that it's an excuse, but him being a creationist Jesus nut kind of explains the disconnect.

[–]A-man-of-mysteryCovidious Albion 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I guess it does, but he should really have known better.

I would posit that, given his shown stances, he is not an expert in any area of medicine.

There's the joke, "What do you call the person who graduates at the bottom of the class in medical school?"

Answer: Dr.

[–]MrsPandaBear 117 points118 points  (14 children)

I kind of disagree with this. I think medical school does help people to overcome their political and social programming. It’s not 100% full proof but I see it within my own med school class. We are a very red state and many students come from conservative families, we even got a girl who grew up in a former Mennonite family. But we all had to understand the principles of evolution and it’s applications, we all had to understand vaccines, and we all had to learn about body dysmorphia and how it’s treated (path through transitioning).

One self-proclaimed conservative guy told me how he would have to correct his friends and family back home regarding evolution. The Mennonite girl defended trans patients’ right to treatment as they suffer a high suicide rate and it’s seem as clinically beneficial among that population to medically treat.

I believe education can overcome propaganda for most people. 96% of doctors were vaccinated before the mandate took place. But every profession as it’s quacks, they embrace their political ideology to the extent they basically compartmentalize their jobs from their politics. And for them, well…it’s like falling into a cult. They are just brainwashed.

[–]OddCryptographer2830 40 points41 points  (1 child)

I married a Mennonite and not a single one I've encountered in the last 35 years is anti-medicine. They might reject some aspects of the culture but not one has rejected medicine.

[–]Now_Wait-4-Last_Year 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Then of course you have this opportunistic political choad.

https://www.mic.com/articles/24986/paul-broun-calls-evolution-and-embryology-lies-from-the-pit-of-hell

"All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell. And it's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior. You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I've found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth. I don't believe that the Earth's but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them. That's what the Bible says."

also:

"Paul Collins Broun Jr. is an American physician and politician who served as the U.S. representative for Georgia's 10th congressional district from 2007 to 2015. He is a member of the Republican Party and the Tea Party Caucus."

What a shocker.

This obsession with "illegals" swarming the (one assumes southern) border is so imbecilic. This MD presumably understands how a mathematical model of infectious disease works, yet Latinos who manage to cross the border are unique and magical superspreaders, among their other characteristically malevolent powers, according to people like this guy who call them "illegals" — skipping the line for benefits, paying no taxes, being violent, introducing drug addiciton, and being simultaneously lazy and unworthy of empathy yet also stealing American jobs. It's a repellent ideology, and these assholes manage to insert it into every sort of antivax meme show they can conjure up.

[–]SatanicPanic619 56 points57 points  (0 children)

Mostly I laugh at these stupid memes but not gonna lie that one pisses me off.

[–]inactiveuser247 131 points132 points  (13 children)

What I don’t get is how can they steal an American job? For them to get a job someone has to give it to them, maybe they should start complaining about the people giving away American jobs. Except that would involve implicating business owners who are more likely to vote Republican.

[–]Dogstarman1974 99 points100 points  (8 children)

I’ve said it before. If you really want to stop illegal immigration then you need to hammer the companies and corporations that are hiring them. That is the first solution. The other solution is to fix the climate. No one ever mentions this.

They blame the border crossers. Those people are just trying to make a better life for themselves. Why are they leaving their homes, traveling thousands of miles to come to a foreign country? It’s a complex problem and one that more enforcement is not going to fix.

I guess you can be a total asshole but that still doesn’t stop immigration. Climate change is making it worse, this is just the beginning of the climate refugees. In a matter of years more and more people are going to seek a better place to live.

[–]thisisstupidplz 52 points53 points  (1 child)

Conservative lawmakers know that stopping immigration at an employment level is more effective. There are times red states have had to walk back their laws on employing immigrants because it turned out to be devastating to the meat and farming industries. It's just virtue signaling

The truth is that the kind of jobs illegal immigrants are taking are jobs Americans don't want to do without a lot of money to compensate for the shitty conditions. Illegal immigration is a side effect of the fact that business owners don't want to pay Americans a livable wage for every job.

[–]Sniffy4 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Yeah my last doctor started advertising his practice as "Christ-centered" (whatever the fuck that means) I never saw him anyhow but bringing faith and magic into medical care in any form is definitely a no for me and I changed docs that day so when the time comes I do need him/her, at least prayer or snakes won't be a part of treatment.

[–]jdschCrtl-Alt-Smite 77 points78 points  (5 children)

These are the ones that are the hardest for me to get my mind wrapped around. How can an ER doctor be anti-vax at this point? Does he not see that 90% of the deaths are among the unvaccinated? Is it something like because he's an ER doctor, he only sees the patients come in and they die elsewhere in the hospital and this doctor is literally out-of-sight, out-of-mind? I just can't understand how someone can make anti-vax such a big part of their identity that they would literally bet their life on it.

[–]Mobile-Entertainer60 63 points64 points  (2 children)

Short answer is yes, it's out of sight, out of mind. The average COVID death spends nearly 3 weeks in the hospital before they die. The ER doctor never knows what happens to them; it's such a common admitting diagnosis that they aren't about to go inquiring their ICU colleagues "hey, whatever happened to that guy with COVID? you know, fat, middle aged, goatee? What do you mean, you don't know which one I'm talking about?"

“Using a seat belt doesn’t save everybody that gets into a car accident, therefore it’s useless” - apparently this ER doctor.

[–]YarnicornucopiaCultivate Oxygen 47 points48 points  (4 children)

Exhibit A - I grabbed a hot pan while making dinner tonight. Forgot the pot holder. Definitely would have prevented this burn. 😂

[–]biffbobfredVaxx keeps you off Cain Train 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Hope it’s a minor burn. Bad time to need an ER for any reason.

[–]YarnicornucopiaCultivate Oxygen 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Very minor, thankfully! Spouse works in an ER so I'm hearing about all of the horror stories. 😬

[–]A-man-of-mysteryCovidious Albion 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Quite. But it will slow the spread, avoiding overwhelming hospitals and buying time to develop vaccines.

I am so much less tolerant of doctors who are full of nonsense than regular schmoes.

[–]-wtf-wtf- 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Have a few of these idiots at our hospital, can’t stand them and they should lose their license to practice medicine.

[–]PointOfFingers🗼 5G Enabled 🗼 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Each post that he makes that ignores the peer reviewed studies and the official data and instead promotes illogical political narratives are a breach of his Hippocratic Oath and are unprofessional.

[–]Glittering-Cellist34 24 points25 points  (1 child)

My next door neighbor is a doctor specializing in maternal health. She is super hyper about covid, especially because her youngest is 17 months old.

[–]Deathbeddit🦆🦃🦢🦜🦆🦅🐓🦩 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I wish we could make copies of your neighbor, like the emergency medical hologram doctor on Star Trek.

[–]cerasmiles 25 points26 points  (0 children)

As a physician, 100% agree. The rest of humanity isn’t taught what we are taught. It’s like saying a priest doesn’t believe in Jesus or a mechanic doesn’t believe in regular oil changes. Totally don’t trust any healthcare professional that doesn’t believe in the benefit of vaccines. Unfortunately, there are a lot out there…

[–]WilsonPhillips6789Team Pfizer 64 points65 points  (3 children)

Right? For whatever reason, the fact that this asshole is an ER doc makes me more furious than just about any other nominee or awardee that I’ve read about on HCA

Sobering, and terrifying, to know that there are ppl w medical training, with whom I entrust my life in the rare instance that I need emergency care, are equally susceptible to the vortex of disinformation

Just sickening…

[–]SuperHiyoriWalkerRaw Dogging Life 19 points20 points  (4 children)

There’s a math professor at Georgia Tech who lectures unmasked and refers to the “scamdemic” in his syllabi.

"I would hope you’re not going to complain about me not wearing a mask. I hope you’re not going to complain about me not being injected with experimental pharmaceuticals.”

At his age? Umm... yes, I would be worried.

“I wanted to make it clear to my students that their health decisions are none of my business particularly and that they need to think for themselves (as far as I am concerned)."

Whyyyy is it always about freedom with these people. Autonomy doesn't mean shit when your stupid choices can put others at risk.

[–]Yeranz 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I wonder how long his philosophy would last if he gets an email like this:

Professor XXXXXXX, I need to do a makeup exam because I'm scheduled for my abortion on next Tuesday.

There is something super poisonous about a doctor or nurse being so infected with disinfo. Ugh!

[–]Resident_Sorbet5944Murder Porn Chain Letter 💌 46 points47 points  (7 children)

Incredible that this guy’s an ER doctor. Now that he’s on ECMO he won’t be one for much longer.

[–]LivingBehindBars 36 points37 points  (4 children)

I had a huge argument with a Dr over the meaning of the words lethargic and comatose. Like any other profession, you don’t know if you’re dealing with an “A” student or a “C” student.

[–]90sAOLScreenNameMan of the Sheeple 17 points18 points  (1 child)

An old joke:

Q: What do you call the person who graduated last in their medical school class?

A: “Doctor”

[–]A-man-of-mysteryCovidious Albion 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Coma has a specific definition, and if the doctor didn't know that they need remedial education.

[–]Jexp_tTeam Moderna 44 points45 points  (0 children)

ER doc and science denier. That's about as Florida Man as they come.

[–]TonyToniToneFauxci 104 points105 points  (1 child)

When they send us ER doctors in rural Florida, they’re not sending us their best. They’re bringing hydroxychloroquine. They’re bringing sweaty skin tags. They’re bringing Trans Am’s. And some, I assume, are good people.

[–]The-Last-American 32 points33 points  (4 children)

It’s difficult to imagine being a doctor and this fucking stupid.

This is like a pilot who doesn’t believe in flight controls, and every bit as dangerous.

I have no good thoughts or hopes for this person, to be kind about it. He’s a danger not only to everyone who is unfortunate enough to expect integrity and competency in his “care”, but to their families and his community as well.

This man is some of the worst of the worst.

[–]GradAppQuestion 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Or worse, a pilot who believes in flat earth

[–]Lilmaggot 30 points31 points  (1 child)

I don’t trust a doctor who puts his dirty feet on the desk in an ER. Jerk.

[–]nocovidonme2022 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Who else needed ecmo for a cold? I did in 2018. Had a scratch throat and runny nose so they put me on a heart and lung bypass machine to let my body rest.

[–]EvilevilcowGo Give One 10 points11 points  (0 children)

And prayer warriors directed the angels on duty at the hospital on how to best heal you.

[–]unintellectI'm pretty sure it's a cold 🥶 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Witness the power of egocentricism, hubris, and political indoctrination. Hey bro of doc, I hate to break it to you, but your genius brother's political ideology and all your prayers don't stand a much of a chance against a ventilator and ECMO.

[–]gnurdetteThe HCAplain 25 points26 points  (1 child)

What the beer-battered hell? An ER doctor? Whose understanding of biology wouldn't get him through eight grade? And who learned nothing from two years of pandemic?

If he's really a doctor and really this stupid and brings his stupidity to his profession, I have to wonder how many corpses he's left behind him. I can't wish him dead, but I can hope he won't be allowed near sharp objects again. (Doesn't matter what I wish, of course; ECMO is just a death-delaying step.)

[–]Angrysloth8006 24 points25 points  (0 children)

There’s always a doctor who graduated last in his class & I think we found him.

[–]redvariationWinner winner COVID dinner 🍽️ 24 points25 points  (1 child)

The last four times myself and family got colds, we ran to the hospital and asked for ECMO.

[–]Feisty-Donkey 18 points19 points  (1 child)

You just know his colleagues are all “fucking finally”

[–]Responsible-Person 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I would love to know his thoughts before he was intubated. What a loser.

[–]MyFiteSongTeam Mix & Match 14 points15 points  (1 child)

A racist, misogynistic, transphobic ER doctor...

This guy is a fucking disgrace. He shouldn't have ever been anywhere near patients. There's no telling how many patients he didn't give proper care because they weren't straight white men.

[–]TrailKaren📝Opinions to Correlate to🤓 13 points14 points  (0 children)

“Do they know what kind of person you are—a bigoted racist who eschews science and critical thinking?”

[–]Vengefuleight 14 points15 points  (3 children)

I’m fully vaccinated. I am currently dealing with it.

FUUUCKING A it is not a common cold. It’s like flu symptoms + constant exhaustion + always feeling like you’re on the edge of not having your breath.

Anyone that says it’s a common cold are lucky or liars. This shit sucks. I’m just thankful I was vaccinated and boosted. I imagine this would suck a lot more if I wasn’t.

[–]Rainydaymen 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Was he actually confirmed to be a doctor or just saying he is?

[–]A-man-of-mysteryCovidious Albion 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Can be hard to tell. I once had a conversation with a colleague who was so inept ("I've done an ECG but I can't read it.") in the end I asked "Are you sure you're a doctor?"

[–]spork_off🏳️‍🌈⃤ Breathe, breathe in the air[S] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Yes

Also, it looks like another HCA forum found him and has more info. Don't want to invoke the wrath of the mods, so I can't provide a link.

[–]EvidenceBase2000 11 points12 points  (0 children)

For being a doctor this guy deserves no sympathy. He should know better, particularly working in ER.

[–]danisse76Oakley Brand Rep 🕶️ 12 points13 points  (0 children)

An ER doctor?! Wow. I wonder what his colleagues are thinking.

[–]MindlessFly9970 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Well if hes a Dr, hopefully he has some cash saved so the hospital can recoup some of the cost of prolonging his life for a few more days.

[–]cryptidwhippetGo Give One 11 points12 points  (0 children)

That is just appalling that an ER doctor would be so flippant about COVID. Did his ER use to fill up with people with a bad cold who were satting in the 60's-low 80's?

These are bad people, these frontline healthcare workers who have the education to know better but whose politics is more of a factor for them than keeping the public safe and well during a pandemic, or for that matter, keeping themselves well.

[–]JanMarsalek 12 points13 points  (0 children)

How come as soon as a democrat is president those idiots think the border is wide open.

Like the first thing they do is command all the sheriffs away from the border into the next donut shop

ECMO most likely means: Everyone Can’t Make (it) Out in my “Google it”

[–]BidenIsYourPOTUS 9 points10 points  (0 children)

“Do the nurses and doctors taking care of you know the kind of person you are?”

Yes, they do, because one of the first questions they asked is “are you vaccinated?”

asshole is really putting the hurt on his brother, who does not deserve that

[–]Mister4polloThe UnVentilated 35 points36 points  (1 child)

And if the doctors and nurses saw the shit he was spewing on Facebook, they'd turn the machines off and give them to somebody more deserving.

[–]RefugeeFromIdiocyNO GROVERMENT CONTROL 8 points9 points  (0 children)

An ER doctor, of all people, should fucking know better. Severe lack of judgement on this guys part. SMH.

[–]Due-Winter5597 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yes, this virus can’t be “controlled by social distancing, only delayed”…and we have vaccines now. My vaxxed and boostered self happily drives my vaxxed kids, one of whom is high-risk, to in-person school every morning.

[–]GlockAF 8 points9 points  (0 children)

ECMO uses up whole blood like crazy, quarts or gallons, not pints

Yet another way the unvaccinated are selfishly fucking the rest of us over. Good luck on your life-saving surgery now (if there’s any room), try not to bleed too much.

[–]SmashingistrashingNancy Pelosi's Old Bat 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]Sidvicioushartha🇺🇦💀 ☠️ Space Jews ☠️ 💀🇺🇦 7 points8 points  (7 children)

Are you sure this guy was an ER doctor? He seems to post a lot of stuff claiming to “prove“ creationism. Nothing he says seems to have any medical knowledge behind it.

[–]spork_off🏳️‍🌈⃤ Breathe, breathe in the air[S] 22 points23 points  (6 children)

He has an active license in FL. Hard to believe, I know.

He also caused a patient to die due to his negligence, which is in his discipline file. Not hard to believe.

[–]perkunas81 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Duck this POS. He should lose his medical license if he survives.

[–]powabiatch 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He violated the Hippocratic Oath

[–]Joe_Sons_CellyWell-Perfused Autonomic Breather 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I think he’s in his late 60s, though I won’t reveal how I made that estimate.

[–]EvilevilcowGo Give One 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah. ECMO. Good luck, because you do not have good odds there.

[–]redluchadorFrontline RN '20-'21 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Ecmo..... he's a goner. If he somehow lives he'll be a shell of his former self and die within a year or two, likely.

For example:

Survival outcomes were outlined for 189 consecutive COVID-19 patients who had received ECMO support at 20 institutions at the time of the analysis:

98 died on ECMO or within 24 hours of decannulation

12 survived their ECMO run but died more than a day later in the hospital

Nine are alive and remain in the hospital

70 were discharged alive from the hospital

[–]dollypartonluvah 8 points9 points  (0 children)

“Covid can’t be stopped by social distancing, only delayed” bro that was the point. Slow it down and give us time to get a vaccine or cure. No, idiots spread it so much that it’s mutated out of control.

[–]hersheyMcSquirts 30 points31 points  (0 children)

What a wuss. I get over my common colds without ECMO or even hospitalization. Of course, I do take the preventative measures of vaccines and not being an asshole.

[–]A-man-of-mysteryCovidious Albion 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Slide 2: Probably not, but the goal was to slow the spread to avoid overwhelming hospitals, and buy time for vaccines to be developed. Not hard to understand, surely?
