CORONAVIRUS slowly starves you of oxygen and is like being suffocated, an expert has claimed.

Dr Cameron Kyle-Sidell, who is a critical care doctor in Brooklyn, New York, likened the symptoms of the disease to "altitude sickness".

His comments were in response to X-rays from the lungs of Covid-19 patients, which generally appear to look quite healthy.

Some patients may have lungs showing some areas of cloudiness, though most of it is black - indicating that they are filled with air.

Dr Kyle-Sidell, of the Maimonides Medical Center, explained that it was because patients were slowly being starved of oxygen.

He likened it to being stuck on a plane at 30,000ft and the cabin pressure is slowly let out, Medical Daily reported.

The medic has been vocal in social media where he has called for ventilation techniques to be used in a slightly different way.

He says that Covid-19 doesn't act in the same way as another type of respiratory illness known as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

Therefore, he believes that means that treatment should be different too.

Dr Kyle-Sidell tweeted: "Everyone in the medical field... Patients need oxygen not pressure. Covid-19 is not ARDS.

It means that the blood moves to another area that is still functioning properly.

However, Dr Gattinoni believes that some Covid-19 patients are unable to do this, so blood continues to flow through damaged parts of the lungs.

Some patients may feel like they’re taking good breaths but their blood oxygen is unknowingly dropping at the same time.

This new report / observation by Dr. Kyle-Sidell could be a game changer in treating and taking care of covid19 patients, perhaps also reducing the use of complicated ventilators for patients and using instead the simpler inhalers to supply oxygen-rich air to them.

Btw here is something of interest (ventilators) in the following from a website on difficulties in breathing.

Forms of NPPV (noninvasive positive pressure ventilation) for use against COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder), Obstructive sleep apnea, Obesity hypoventilation syndrome, and Asthma flare-ups:

There are several forms of noninvasive positive pressure ventilation, including CPAP, BiPAP, and APAP. All three deliver pressurized oxygen through a mask, though they vary as to the ability to change settings.

Typically associated with sleep apnea treatment, the pressure delivered by PAP machines prevents the throat muscles from collapsing and restricting airflow.

CPAP:Continuous positive airway pressure is typically used in people who have obstructive sleep apnea. CPAP is set at a single constant level of pressure for both inhalation and exhalation.

BIPAP: Bilevel positive airway pressure has two settings: one for inhalation and one for exhalation. BiPAP is used more often for people with COPD since it is easier to exhale against a lower pressure, which this system allows for. A doctor will help calibrate the machine and choose your optimal settings.

APAP: Auto-adjusting positive airway pressure machines can actually calculate the necessary pressure for an individual's breathing comfort and automatically self-adjust. This "smart" device can be helpful if you have varied breathing patterns during the night, such as during different cycles of REM sleep, or if you move around a lot while sleeping.

Thanks FH, for the link on 'Simha Kriya'.
