Join me for a night shift in the COVID-19 ICU in Ontario, Canada. I’m Siobhan, a 4th year medical resident and I’m going to bring you behind the scenes in the hospital. The 3rd wave is being driven by COVID-19 variants, which are spreading faster and affecting younger people. With record numbers of hospital and ICU admissions, the military is setting up field hospitals to care for more patients.

Stay safe, support one another, and get vaccinated when you are eligible!

Special THANK YOU to Brittany (MD), Erin (RN), Jen (RN) and the entire ICU team for supporting and collaborating on this video!

How do you communicate with the pts while they are on a vent? I'd be scared to death to be awake and on a vent

Imagine you’re in the ICU and wake up out of a coma and have to text everyone you know to tell them

Erin is an angel nurse – glad to see her in the ICU. She was mine for a few days the first time I got really sick and eased my fears and was so attentive and caring.

Estaba encantada y agradecida con la curación inmediata que obtuve a través de la medicina a base de hierbas del Dr. Agboya después de muchos años de ser paciente con HSV2.

Siga salvando la vida de las personas Dr. Aquí está su canal de youtube #dragboyaherbalhome

Allyvia says:

Covid has been so fucking frightening. My sister and I were stunned when a family friend who was only 30 died from covid. She had only just birthed her child and died two weeks later from ongoing covid.

Jenna Butler says:

Siobhan – were those younger sick patients not vaccinated? Kinda freaked me out. You're doing an amazing job. Keep it up.

Nettie Combs says:

Just a little aside, love your purple shoes! What brand are they?

You're Right says:

I was on a ventilator once. I was awake for about an hour of it and it was absolutely terrifying. I had been in a really bad car wreck and they put me into a medically induced coma to allow my body to heal. My brain was swollen and they were trying to avoid emergency surgery to keep it from pushing against my skull. Luckily after a few days the swelling started going down. When I first woke up, I had no idea where I was. Why I was there. I was on a ventilator, but wasn’t fully aware of my situation. So I was trying to pull it out. They grabbed my arms and held them down and explained what was going on. They shot me up with something and I calmed down instantly and just went back to sleep. The next thing I know they were pulling the tube out of throat. I tried to talk but couldn’t. The tube had scrapped my vocal chords and I had laryngitis.

Roxanne R says:

Ok, I am convinced. I will get the vaccine.

Rose Jackson says:

is MRI the same as a CT scan ?

Vanessa Amesty says:

This is so real

Freedom says:

Freedom says:
