So he made a video that simulated the intubation of a Covid patient, at the last moment of their lives, that they are awake and clear.
“I hope the last moments of your life don’t look that way,” Remy says holding up the larynx and a snorkel in the video, which is used to intubate patients. “Because you’ll see this at the end of your life if we don’t start wearing a mask when we’re out in public.
Remy is a pediatric and adult critical care physician at the University of Washington Medical Center in St. Louis. He says he treated more than 1,000 Covid patients and intubated well over 100 of them.
Missouri roughly doubles the number of Covid cases each month. The state reports well over 4,000 new cases of Covid every day.
Remy is increasingly hearing that people are falsely claiming that wearing masks is ineffective in preventing Covid; some patients tell him they are not afraid of the virus because the likelihood of Covid dying is low.
Remy turned that explanation on his head.
“If I had to win the lottery with such chances, I would play it every single day,” he said of the chances of Covid-19 dying.
He is not just an ICU doctor; Remy runs the Covid lab at the University of Washington, which tests new treatments to keep patients alive.
After holding up the larynx and trachea in the video, Remy continues, “I promise you that your mother, father, or children will see this at the end of their lives when they suffer from Covid’s disease. This is serious. Please take precautions to reduce the spread of Covid’s disease. in order to effectively prevent the illness of you and your loved ones. ”
In recent weeks, Remy said there has been a significant increase in cases and hospital care. They had so many deaths, their morgue is full, he says.
This, and after talking to another family who had lost a loved one because of Covid, was on the phone, forcing him to take action and forcing people to follow preventive precautions.
“Many of these patients die unexpectedly, and at the end of the day, I have to call me as an intensive care unit doctor,” he says. – I think it weighed on me.
