‘We are dying inside’: Indian doctor on losing patients to Covid

 

CNN's Sam Kiley reports from a hospital in New Delhi where eight people, including one doctor, died after the facility ran out of medical oxygen. India has recorded over 18 million cases since the pandemic began — and its health care infrastructure has crumbled under pressure, with hospitals running out of oxygen and medicines.

    1. @grin chi Just because Modi will not call for a nationwide shutdown doesn’t mean that the citizens of India cannot enact a shutdown themselves. Only go outside to get inoculated.

    1. @Jao Bidan leave it to this turd to make this about anti socialism. This comment of yours just exposes what kind of person you are, and now that we know, whatever your opinion on socialism or anything thats within this good earth, is worth nothing!

  1. Imagine being one of those doctors having to treat his patients without any oxygen around…..horrible!

    1. In India Why People are Rushing To Hospitals when Low Oxygen Level in the Lungs. This Science may Explain :
      Breathlessness debilitates countless people with a wide range of common diseases.

      For some people, the experience of breathlessness is poorly explained by the findings of medical tests.

      This disparity complicates diagnostic and treatment options and means that disease-modifying treatments do not always have the expected effect upon symptoms.

      These observations suggest that brain processing of respiratory perceptions may be somewhat independent of disease processes.

      This may help to explain the dissonance observed in some patients between physical disease markers
      and the lived experience of breathlessness.

      Recent Findings :
      A body of breathlessness research using functional neuroimaging has identified a relatively consistent set of brain areas that are associated with breathlessness.

      These areas include the insula, cingulate and sensory cortices, the amygdala and the periaqueductal gray matter.

      We interpret these findings in the context of new theories of perception that emphasize the importance of distributed brain networks.

      Within this framework,
      these perceptual networks function by checking an internal model
      (a set of expectations) against peripheral sensory inputs,
      instead of the brain acting as a passive signal transducer.

      #* Furthermore, other factors beyond the physiology of breathlessness can influence the system.

      A person’s expectations and mood are major contributors to the function of the brain networks that generate perceptions of breathlessness.

      Breathlessness, therefore, arises from inferences made by the brain’s integration of both expectations and sensory inputs.

      By better understanding individual differences across these contributing perceptual factors,

      we will be better poised to develop targeted and individualized treatments for breathlessness that could complement disease-modifying therapies.

      WHERE ARE THE CLOROX 5 AND 10 PERCENT HANDWASHING DISPENSERS? YOU CANNOT PUT OUT A PANDEMIC WITHOUT T HIS. WASH HANDS AND ANY EXPOSED AREA NUMEROUS TIMES A DAY TO PREVENT INFECTIONS.

    3. @Support your Troops & Athletes Her account says joined 6days ago,It’s a troll using other people’s identity.

    4. @ern pible .. thank you for pointing that out as it clearly did not sound like her at all and it’s a shame identity theft of her photo is going on as she had her account for ages so what you are saying makes sense, thank you.

    1. @Brian Vector was that a typo / are you trolling / or are you just so stupid that your brain cant even process what human life means?

  2. I teared up, honestly we are truly numbers and stats, this is so sad, to know why and how and yet fail to save life.

  3. All of them are heroes. Condolences to all perished. So sad to see him cry. Hope he get some relieve soon.

  4. Early on, people were asked in India to exercise social distancing and they said only the rich can afford to social distance as all the poor live in close quarters and cannot. Pray for them

    1. @S Taylor not being rude but have you ever been to India? It’s virtually impossible .
      Prayers and love sent from England

    2. @asyraf shah a lot of times money is worthless now as the rich are now finding out ….no high class , no middle class, no low cast ::::::::No oxygen:::::Most are the same now ….love and prayers for you India

    3. Later, when there was plenty of vaccine available, Indians acted as if the whole problem was gone, and stayed vulnerable. Even Brazil has a better rate of vaccination. And this, despite the fact that India is producing her own vaccine, and has over ten million doses going begging.

  5. My heart goes out to the frontline workers there in India. Never take breathing for granted

    1. Right…especially oxygen is not something that’s very expensive to have.

      After the Indian govt made the mistake to declare victory over Covid too early. And allowed Biggest religious festival ” Kumbh Mela ” in India to go on and election rallies where tens of thousands of people gather shoulder to shoulder….
      And the Indian govt invests too little in health infrastructure….

    2. All who see the shadow of death fall upon those who come in desperation seeking to be saved know well the scale of this tragedy and the utter helplessness that is felt when NOTHING can be done to send death away!

  6. That poor doctor. His heart and soul must be aching. As a former nurse, you can’t help but be affected, to some degree, by the people that you take care of. I was a palliative nurse, taking care of patients in the last months, weeks, days and hours of their life. And to do that job properly, you have to become invested in them, and their families as well. Many a day I left work in tears. I totally understand this doctor.

    1. Prayers to them all! In before a crazy conspiracy theorist comes in to say it’s all fake while people are literally in pain and crying over losing loved ones. This isn’t 5G

  7. This isn’t a simple sob story in India. I can feel the heaviness there and I’m an American in the U.S.

  8. My uncle passed away in India due to not having a ventilator, it was sad watching the video call….seeing him take his last breath and no one could do anything to help him. May Allah give him the highest place in Paradise, Aamen.

    1. Prayers to you- I hope your uncle is at such peace and surrounded by colors and light that we can only dream of! You will be united again!

  9. The government should be held accountable for this. Heads must roll. Condolences to the family’s who have lost loved ones.

  10. As doctors we are dying inside….so true sir……nobody understands our efforts….shameful govt …..corrupt and murderers……..

  11. I nearly teared up when that doctor was tearing up. Many people are dying but the ones who lived are probably dying on the inside. imagine the mental health toll this is taking on Indians

  12. Salam and peace for all Indian brothers and sisters from Afghanistan
    Our prayers are with you

  13. You can feel the Doctor’s helplessness. That’s so devastating to see patients dying right in front of your eyes.
