We know about Christmas preparation. We know about the decorations, the food, the parties, and the gifts. Preparing for Christmas is not the same as preparing for the coming of Jesus. How are you preparing for the coming of Jesus? He’s coming . . . Get ready! More...
Breaking the Grip of Medical Tyranny
There is a new term on the scene of contemporary COVID-19 care, and it is not a good one: “medical tyranny.” This refers to a totalitarian posture taken by doctors, nurses, and hospitals caring for patients with acute COVID-19. The isolation procedure has taken family members and loved ones away from the bedside, and now frightened, ill, and isolated patients through forms of video try to interact with healthcare providers about their inpatient treatment.
There are numerous reports of long lengths of stay, unhappy patients and family members, and clear evidence of therapeutic nihilism where patients are not offered the full continuum of care that optimally is started as an outpatient and includes nutraceuticals, monoclonal antibodies, hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, favipiravir (outside the US), doxycycline, azithromycin, inhaled budesonide, oral steroids, colchicine, full dose aspirin, and full anticoagulation.
Patients and family members should demand “shared decision making” and enforce a patient bill of rights that ensures all parties agree on the treatment course. America has been rocked by the court cases that families have brought to bare getting court orders to force doctors and hospitals to administer proper care.
So much hardship and suffering could and should be avoided with early ambulatory treatment and, if needed, continuation of these therapies as an inpatient and then addition additional intravenous medications if required and advanced respiratory support as needed. Patients and their advocates should not accept a “step down” in care once hospitalized for COVID-19.
We welcome on the program⏤Dr. Richard Amerling, MD, Chief Medical Officer for the American Frontline Doctors, who gives his analysis as it relates to medical tyranny among medical doctors who are entranced into waiting for large randomized trials and guidelines based upon those trials. In COVID-19, large, randomized trials of the 4-6 drugs we use in combinations are not even planned at this point, so the wait is an unending one resulting in medical paralysis among inpatient doctors who feel incapacitated in using their clinical judgment and making their best efforts with therapies that have a signal of benefit and acceptable safety.
Courage, clinical skill, and judgment are qualities associated with outpatient doctors far more than hospitalists when it comes to acute COVID-19. It’s time for hospitals and their doctors to get up to speed.
