How Coronavirus Kills: Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) & COVID-19 Treatment


How COVID-19 causes fatalities from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) by pulmonologist and critical care specialist Dr. Seheult of
This video illustrates how viruses such as the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 can cause pneumonia or widespread lung inflammation resulting in ARDS.
Includes evidenced-based ARDS treatment breakthrough strategies: Low tidal volume ventilation, paralysis, and prone positioning.

  1. I pray for all the asthma patients including my dad. May God give you the strength to survive this deadly virus

  2. It might be worth updateing the thumbnail of this video as we learn more everyday =P
    keep up the good work 🙂

  3. So … ventilators used improperly can kill. You probably can’t do a A/B testing like we do in software on ventilators. Comparing survivorship among patients with or without ventilators. Also percentage of patients who survive once being on the ventilator. I am sitting on the fence of real usefulness of ventilators until( in practice) until I see that data

  4. My tummy feel weird and if touch the bones it hurts do i have the corona? and im coughing but its dry but i dont have headache and sick

  5. Hope this song resonates with many of you during these hard times.
    Memory Lane

  6. Flight MH-17 July 2014 shot by Russian over Donetsk region with at least 6 virologist . Yesterday Russian government figures on Covid-19 10500 people inflected 48.7% without symptoms. It means they can travel anywhere in the world and infect anyone. And temperature screening was nonsense since beginning. 80% theese people live in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. And they received immunisation before Covid-19 started in China with 6% symptoms free. So the question is why all world leader's are hiding and not telling the truth that Covid-19 started in Russia before it spreaded to the rest world. Is it because of Russian billions.?!

  7. I really appreciate these informative videos in a time of dangerous misinformation. Thankyou to everyone involved. Thanks from Australia.

    Ironically the advertisement before the video told me it could protect me from the virus. The MindValley app.

    I felt violated.

  8. I had the pleasure of having him as my doctor. He was one of the best doctors I have ever had. I had something going on with my lungs and he fixed me right up.

  9. Why isn't anti inflammatory used in lung ? Why isn't carbon dioxide removal methods used ? Does the virus block the bloods ability to carry oxygen or just block by affecting the lung ? Why isn't oxygen used with ventilation ?

  10. More interesting will be, how we can kill the corona virus – with the ozone therapy!

  11. Maybe doctors should use Liquid Breathing method with critical patients, that might help patients to avoid ARDS

  12. How about using a newly invented multi- patient ECMO machine in the event like 2020 Covid19 outbreak? My name is dilip . A chem eng / houston TX.

  13. Thank you for this. This came at the right time, as my friend lay in icu on a respirator with covid pneumonia. I now have a more understanding. Bless you.

  14. I'm so sorry, I think this is a really silly question, because I know theres an answer for why it doesnt work, but… I'm going to ask anyways.

    When a part of your body becomes inflamed, like after twisting an ankle or something, I've learned that you cant reduce inflammation with heat, ice, compression, elevation, etc. In make-up, you can reduce inflation around the eyes with tea bags (caffeine, I guess?).

    How do those things treat inflammation and why is it not possible/effective in treating lung inflammation?

  15. 80% of people put on intubation die. Respirators fine, but I am going to refuse intubation if I get ill and can possibly do it.
