Stage 5

Even if you do manage to make it to stage 5, you are still in a devastatingly critical condition. At this point, your lungs are so filled with the virus that the ventilator just isn’t enough anymore and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is required.

The ECMO machine involves having a plastic tube inserted into a large vein and/or artery through the neck, chest or groin. This machine will bypass your lungs and directly oxygenate your blood, however, there is a major problem with this stage as many hospitals do not have this machine. If you are stable enough, you will be transferred to a facility that does.

  1. This article seems to tell it like it is. I am just recovered from covid and thank God, never went to hospital Went to a walk-in with bad cough, chest pain, weakness and hard to breathe. They started me on steroids and antibiotics, and did a covid test. Called next day, it was positive, need to call pc doctor. She agreed with the meds and continued them as well as sending me for 4 shots for antibodies. It was terrible to go thru but I had the two shot vaccine in March and feel that is why it never got any worse. You don’t want to chance this, do what ever you need to do to stay well.

    You just told me it didn’t go thru. sorry, I am done.

  2. If you happen to survive the treatment, at whatever point, what happens next? I assume there is more treatments of some sort is required.

  3. Crazy, that people are scared to take the medicine that could save their lives.
    Thanks for everything, Donald.
