You lost your loved one, we understand your loss. We understand your frustration. We are truly sorry for your loss

But let me make it very clear, you cannot blame social volunteers helping day in and out putting in their personal time and energy 1/n
You post a tweet here on social media asking for help and we try our level best to connect you to the necessary available resources.

But at the same time to escalate and connect with the state authorities, we need details from your end in one go.

You know that the case is 2/n
serious and there is an immediate requirement of remedesvir or plasma or Oxygen or bipap or ventilator, Sir we need basic information for the same.

We don't say that you are lying here on social media for footage but when we need to talk to the CMO, DC, ADC and Commissioner 3/n

This a plea to journalists.

When someone dies under a pile of officers, the death is NOT an isolated event.

And there are many more deaths than just the death of George Floyd.

Let's start with 4/19/21 death of #MarioGonzalez

Body camera released yesterday

Gonzalez was held prone (on stomach) and handcuffed for multiple minutes before he stopped breathing

Happened in Alameda, CA, day before George Floyd verdict.

It's generated quite a few stories now that body cam is out

It's natural for people to see this and instantly think of Floyd

But here's the thing,

Our ongoing #PRONE investigation has found dozens of other deaths just like the deaths of Floyd and Gonzalez

How many?

My list now has 118 names. People like Roy Nelson. Died in 2015

We found more than 100 people who died, facedown and handcuffed, as we looked into the prone restraint death of #GeorgeFloyd.

As the #DerekChauvinTrial begins... it's important to know the dangers of the position are well known.

#ProneRestraint #Prone…
As the video plays of George Floyd's death right now... I can't help but think of people like Anton Black...

I'd like to walk you through the process we've gone through for our investigation #PRONE

To review, we have found at least 107 deaths of people who died shortly after being held facedown and handcuffed.

Here are 100 of their faces.

Like many investigations, this one started with another.

Last year, I started looking into the 2018 death of David Baker.

Baker, a Navy veteran, died shortly after several Aurora police officers pinned him to the ground after a violent confrontation.

According to the coroner's report, Baker died of "restraint asphyxia"

He died, in essence, because he couldn't breathe enough air in and out of his body.

#CCCF2020 Brian Kavanaugh Controversies - #COVID19: #ARDS or not? What we really addressed - not so much "is it ARDS?" but rather, "does it matter?" So happy to have been a part of this, but man, I still have so much to say! My take on the ? – yes, it matters - to an extent 🧵 1/ Image
Pre-intubation management: YES, but not because it substantially changes methods of support, or the criteria used for #intubation. It matters because categorizing patients as having #ARDS has value. 2/
If we use the Berlin definition, patients on Venturi masks or arguably #HFNC don’t actually meet criteria for #ARDS because they’re not on PEEP >/= 5. The natural history of ARDS though almost certainly begins prior to the use of mechanical ventilation (invasive or not). 3/

Starting a series on clinical Pearls I am gathering in #COVID19 patients based on experiences of many experts

Will add as we go along

Feel free to add your own observations/experiences

#covidclinicalpearls /1
Anosmia is likely the most specific #COVID19 related symptom
30% of patients have anosmia as their 1st symptom
#covidclinicalpearls /2
Around 90% of patients have fever.
50% maybe afebrile at the time of presentation
Fever tends to be very resistant to routine measures in hospitalized patients
There is no consensus that NSAIDs are to be avoided in #COVID2019 patients
