Who can see your viewing activity?
Sorry everyone, have to stay muted unless you all want to hear songs from Frozen again
many places are using CPAP and helmet CPAP appears to be ideal for those who are happy hypoxics. any thoughts given our algorithm says 6L Hudson mask and then intubation
should N95 make be "fit tested" not just "fit checked" (as per manufacture guidelines)
THERAPY why is ANZICS “banning” CPAP when it’s used by WHO, UK and USA?
Australia 5800 cases, 40 deaths. NZ 1000 cases, 1 death.
Similar issue raised in UK - people presenting late to hospital with non-COVID issues such as bowel conditions perforated, with MIs etc
Czechia 85 000 tests, 4600 positive, 72 death per 10 mil population
The equivalent of Magen David Adom in Australia?New Zealand is a combination of St Johns and Red Cross
how widely is community testing being done in a Israel. in Australia you need yo have a H of travel/ Covid contact or severe disease. and recently have added a HCW with symptoms. so we are not measuring community transmission, but being told we don’t have it.
what preparations are being made to ensure adequate information on social Distancing In time for Ramadan. Could be world wide problem?
Special Populations: what is the situation regarding people is the Gaza Strip and other improvised pockets in Israel?
Have you guys looked at the number of HCW who contracted the disease in Israel? Did you have shortage of staff?
14% patients screened in ED at Hadassah are COVID+
So was that 1700 medical personnel in isolation due to exposure (including 300 doctors). Is there a percentage that test positive?
How are you transferring positive patiens from hospital home?
TAT for COVID 19 PCR is 4-6 hours at Hadassah
Do you treat COVID+ patients whit nebulisation?
PPE- what has been learned about the circumstances that have led to HCW being infected? I have not been able to find an analysis of potential factors.
INVESTIGATION was there any cross infection in the biological zone?
IDF - Israeli Defense Forces
IDF = Israel Defence Force
Do you have community-based transmission (ie without a known contact or travel history)? If so, how do you handle the possibility of asymptomatic carriers in your ED?
