Life-Saving Advice from a Nurse

An friend who was diagnosed with COVID-1984 and hospitalized tells how a nurse saved him from possibly being killed by a ventilator that may well have exploded his lungs, as they have with so many others.  The hospital had a bureaucratic rule that when a patient’s oxygen level goes below a certain number, he is put on a ventilator.  One day the nurse came into the room and took the oxygen reading and said that is was a little low.  The nurse advised his patient to take several very deep and very rapid breaths to increase his oxygen level a point or two.  It worked, the nurse took a new measurement, and noted it on his chart.

My friend was ill for five days and has fully recovered.
