Stumbled across this today when looking for a different reference and did a double take - another David Steensma, and a Dr Papaemmanuil who is not ⁦@PapaemmanuilLab⁩, publishing on #ICUS which we have both published on - neither are especially common surnames 😮
I have to find this guy and publish with him and cause EndNote confusion forever after /2
As an undergraduate @Calvin_Uni I published a quantum physics paper with Bob Steen, and we were desperate to get Steve Steenwyk in the department to author with us so it could be the Steen-Steensma-Steenwyk paper, but it didn’t work out /3

Given the full community spread of #SARS_CoV_2, it is time to stop incessant #RTPCR testing in asymptomatic people, so called "healthy sick" , and save resources. Start early Rx with ivermectin+budesonide+Zn+ chicken soup+kadha or whatever in mild to moderate #Covid_19 cases. 1/n
And, reserve #ICUs for serious #Covid patients only. Start triage and stop the use of #Remdesivir and #convalescentplasma therapy ASAP, as it doesn't help save lives. Don't hospitalize maniacs hyperventilating due to fear in the Covid ward and shift them to counseling ... 2/n
.. for managing hyper active state of mind & deactivate their social media accounts + WhatsApp. Public health intervention with #VitaminD 60k once week for 4 weeks starting now and not while patient is sick with #Covid By then it will not help to build adequate VitD reserve..3/n

"But if Czechia is doing so much worse than we in Austria, how come we don't hear horror stories from overcrowded hospitals or morgues?"
Is it all not so bad? Or are we just not hearing about it?
I did a back-of-envelope calculation to get an idea. #ICUs #Czechia 1/
/// So instead of going to sleep I spent last night doing this calculation and the results were pretty terrible. I think it's important but because it is so important I decided to put in a bit more time and have it checked by critical friends.
So I took the original thread down. Once I'm done with review, I'll bring it back up here, promised. Especially when results are harsh, I'd like to stick to how science works. First peer review, then sharing with the public. Thanks for your understanding!

Floating the big yellow bird today. (#swanganz #SCG #PAC). Always remember to “lift it, flick it, flush it” and watch the results on the monitor before you set it a sail to make sure you’re on the right channel and you’re scale is correct. #zentensivist @doc_BLocke
Irony is I get flask for not doing bronchs where I rarely find anything and I get flak for doing Swans where, as in this case, I often find useful things
To elaborate on “lift it flick it flush it” just in case it’s not obvious: b/f you float the swan, check it’s response on the monitor: lift it (the tip) 10 cm & see if baseline rises accordingly on the monitor; flick the tip to see if you get deflections; then flush it to see if
