Eye-Opening Interviews of Three Front-Line Doctors in New York City.
Two of these doctors went to NY especially to help with the outbreak.
Dr. Kyle-Sidell is an ER/Critical Care Specialist who explains the incredible challenges with ventilator management of Covid-19 patients that are in respiratory failure due to ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome).
Dr. Luke Northern went to NYC especially to help fight the pandemic and describes it as overwhelming.
Dr. Mary McLean works in yet a different ER in NYC. She explains her experiences struggling as a front-line doctor during this pandemic, while being separated from her loved ones across the country.
The medical system clearly has its work cut out for it, with regard to learning how to navigate the never-before-seen manifestations of Covid-19 of a novel infectious disease. What makes this so harrowing is the time-sensitive nature of our learning-curve. We are losing lives at an alarming rate, which will cease to be the case as soon as the international medical community figures out how to properly manage this type of respiratory failure. In the meantime, we have a lot of incredibly brave and dedicated medical professionals electing to jump into the chaos to help others in crisis.
“What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger” has taken on a whole new meaning in 2020.
