The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Working Group consists of eight U.S. physicians, including five leading critical care specialists, who have developed a protocol for treating COVID-19 patients. Despite the fact that their protocol is saving lives, it has been met with resistance by those who cling to a more "established" medical paradigm that is resulting in needless deaths. Watch the video below, read the supporting materials and please share this important information with others.
"This video describes the work of five critical care specialists who are treating coronavirus patients at academic centers and other major hospitals across the United States. Through their current work, past research, and studying the findings of the Shanghai expert protocols, they have concluded that a combination of corticosteroids, high dose intravenous ascorbic acid (vitamin C), and anticoagulants, given early in the ER or hospital, can prevent the progression of the disease and reduce the need for mechanical ventilators. Their findings have not yet been widely adopted in the U.S. and they want to get the word out
to save lives now."

“Just a few points with reference to Covid. I think it’s really important to treat patients for the disease they have and not for the disease we want to give them, or we think they have…This is not typical ARDS; and it you intubate them early and put them on a ventilator, you’re going to damage their lungs. You’re going to harm them….”

“I think patients are dying needlessly and I think that this is a terrible shame that we’re allowing this to happen. It is an outright shame. We have effective therapies that can alter the course of the disease. We need to institute them early, aggressively, and we need to prevent patients deteriorating and landing on a ventilator. Once they land on a ventilator, we know the course is prolonged, the mortality may be up to 60 to 70%. It takes them a long time to get off the ventilator and we really have no idea of their functional capacity once they get off the ventilator. We have to do everything in our power to aggressively treat them to prevent them going on to the mechanical ventilator.”

Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Working Group Urges Immediate Adoption of Early Intervention Protocol for Any ER or Hospitalized Patient Developing Breathing Difficulty
NEW YORK, NY: Leading critical care specialists at five academic or major hospitals who together have formed the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Working Group, have released a protocol for treating patients who arrive in hospitals with COVID-19.
Based on available research, the experience in China reflected by the Shanghai expert commission, and their decades-long professional experiences in Intensive Care Units around the country, the five experts strongly urge fellow physicians to immediately adopt a change in strategy by delivering powerful therapies earlier in the disease course, prior to admission to the ICU or the need for a mechanical ventilator.
