9 in 10 young adults with COVID died due to shortage of life-saving treatment, study reveals

Nearly 90 percent of young, otherwise healthy adults dealing with a severe case of COVID-19 died after not receiving a life-saving treatment while in the hospital, a recent study reveals. Concerningly, it’s not because these patients didn’t qualify for the treatment — they did — it’s because hospitals did not have the resources to get these individuals proper care.

Researchers from Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) say that treatment is extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). According to the Mayo Clinic, ECMO pumps a patient’s blood out of their body to a heart-lung machine which removes carbon dioxide. From there, it sends oxygen-filled blood back to the patient’s tissues. The process allows blood to bypass the heart and lungs, giving those organs a chance to rest and heal.

Antes de que la noche te alcance

Antes de que las horas y los años borren tu infancia, juega mucho. diviértete, sueña y construye tu vida con alegrías e ilusiones. Antes de que los días se repitan y acumulen, hasta diluir tu niñez, colúmpiate en la inocencia, brinca, corre, baila, canta y, si así lo deseas, arrástrate en el césped, sin importar que tu ropa se enlode o tus rodillas queden marcadas por las caídas. Antes de que tus primeros años de vida se mezclen con los siguientes, hasta que una mañana o una tarde descubras que la noche te ha alcanzado, vive contento, aprende que la existencia ofrece dulzura y amargura y que, en muchos casos, uno elige el condimento y el sabor. Aliméntate bien y disfruta, cuando las tengas, las golosinas que tanto deleitan y que…
