According to a new study, Around 88% of patients with COVID-19 who were put on ventilators in New York hospitals died.
In this new JAMA study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers analyzed data from 5,700 patients who were hospitalized from March 1 to April 4 through Northwell Health, the largest health system in New York. Of those patients, 2,634 were discharged or had died by the end of the study, and 320 patients with a recorded outcome were put on ventilators. Nearly 9 in 10 of those ventilated patients died.
Around 76% of ventilated patients between the ages of 18 and 65 died, and 97%, of ventilated patients over the age of 65 died, according to the report.
Of the 2,634 patients, ventilated or not, about 21% died, according to the researchers.
The researchers found that among the patients that were hospitalized, the most common underlying conditions were hypertension (around 56.6%), obesity (around 41.7%) and diabetes (around 33.8%).
Watch the video below as a New York City Nurse describes the willful negligence surrounding the overuse of ventilators in NYC hospitals.
