During the first weeks of the COVID-19 “pandemic” in 2020, when nationwide protocols were setup to be used in hospital settings, some frontline doctors began to question the practice of putting COVID-19 positive patients on ventilators, because so many of them were dying, and these doctors made it clear that they were dying from being wrongly placed on these ventilators.
In other words, the ventilators were actually killing them, in many cases by collapsing their lungs.
Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell was one of the first to speak out on this issue, as he had setup a COVID ICU center in New York City. He made it clear that the hospital protocols that called for putting these patients on ventilators was wrong, and addressed the issue in a YouTube video that went viral.
I included a clip from that video in the video I produced a few days ago, The Greatest Lie Ever Told.
Dr. Kyle-Sidell was then interviewed by Dr. John Whyte, MD, MPH, and chief medical officer at WebMD, where they addressed the issue of the percentage of COVID patients dying on ventilators. (Watch the full interview or read the transcript here.)
Other doctors beside Dr. Kyle-Sidell also began speaking out about placing COVID patients on ventilators, stating that about 80% of those vented were dying, and that it was the wrong procedure.
Reporter Mike Stobbe of the Associated Press covered the story at the time:
As health officials around the world push to get more ventilators to treat coronavirus patients, some doctors are moving away from using the breathing machines when they can.
The reason: Some hospitals have reported unusually high death rates for coronavirus patients on ventilators, and some doctors worry that the machines could be harming certain patients.
The evolving treatments highlight the fact that doctors are still learning the best way to manage a virus that emerged only months ago. They are relying on anecdotal, real-time data amid a crush of patients and shortages of basic supplies.
Mechanical ventilators push oxygen into patients whose lungs are failing. Using the machines involves sedating a patient and sticking a tube into the throat. Deaths in such sick patients are common, no matter the reason they need the breathing help.
Generally speaking, 40% to 50% of patients with severe respiratory distress die while on ventilators, experts say. But 80% or more of coronavirus patients placed on the machines in New York City have died, state and city officials say. (Full article.)
A young nurse from Nevada volunteered her services to treat COVID patients in New York City, and was appalled at how patients were dying in these hospitals, NOT from COVID, but from hospital mistreatment, including the wrong use of ventilators. I included a clip from her whistleblower testimony in the video I produced a few days ago, The Greatest Lie Ever Told.
Here is her entire testimony which was originally posted on Facebook. (Warning – graphic language.)
Another clip I included in The Greatest Lie Ever Told was from a respiratory therapist who also exposed the ventilator scandal.
I am a respiratory therapist and I’ve been doing this for 21 years.
I wanted to show you our equipment room.
The first thing I want to say is, does it look like there is a ventilator shortage? There’s not. As a matter of fact, we’re running less ventilators now than we would normally run, and that’s because people are just staying home. They’re not having elective surgery.
Any patient that came in with a respiratory problem was labeled as “Covid.” It doesn’t matter if you have Stage 4 lung cancer, pancreatitis or heart disease, liver failure and everything else.
Because you come in with breathing problems, you’re labeled a Covid patient.
You have to recognize that if every single patient is under investigation as Covid… and dies, then that goes into a Covid death. And they’re showing the numbers like a football game, to scare you.
They’re showing you loading bodies into a tractor trailer to scare you.
I’ve never in my career ever seen bodies loaded into a tractor trailer. It just doesn’t happen. I wonder if those were even bodies – I really don’t believe it. All this stuff is fake.
Let’s talk about ventilators and why there would be a shortage of ventilators. Well, this (pointing) is non-invasive ventilation here, CPAP or BiPAP. This is a mask that gets strapped on you and we can help you breath with that.
We’re not allowed to use those.
For the most part, since Covid came out they said “absolutely not,” that’s going to cause the virus to spread all over the place by spraying aerosols everywhere. And so we can’t use it.
You have to let the patient crash and go straight to a ventilator.
Traditionally, that’s not the way we would treat a patient.
We also have aerosolized medication, bronchol dilators, but we’re not allowed to use those either.
So everything we would traditionally do, we’re not allowed to do.
Every patient that comes in, no matter what their history, is labeled Covid under investigation. So if that patient dies, that becomes a Covid death.
So there’s a lot of weird things going on….
Here is his entire testimony (they forced him to take it down from YouTube – this is on our Bitchute channel).
But the hospital protocols never changed, mainly because hundreds of millions of dollars from the U.S. Government and The CARES Act passed by President Trump, gave financial incentives for companies to produce more ventilators, and for hospitals to use them.
All of that money would have been lost if they changed the hospital protocols.
The cost of hospital reimbursement for putting a patient on a ventilator can be up to $39,000.00 per patient. (Source.)
Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet has documented that the typical hospital reimbursement for treating a COVID patient is about $100,000.00 per patient, making treating COVID patients very profitable. See:

President Trump enacted the Defense Production Act in order to give government funds to manufacturers to produce ventilators, and gave $1.1 billion to GM and Philips to mass produce ventilators. (Source.)
ProPublica reported how one of those companies, Philips, had already received $13.8 million five years earlier from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to produce low-cost ventilators to stockpile in the case of a national pandemic, but when COVID hit, there were none to be found.
Five years ago, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services tried to plug a crucial hole in its preparations for a global pandemic, signing a $13.8 million contract with a Pennsylvania manufacturer to create a low-cost, portable, easy-to-use ventilator that could be stockpiled for emergencies.
This past September, with the design of the new Trilogy Evo Universal finally cleared by the Food and Drug Administration, HHS ordered 10,000 of the ventilators for the Strategic National Stockpile at a cost of $3,280 each.
Last Friday, President Donald Trump invoked the Defense Production Act to compel General Motors to begin mass-producing another company’s ventilator under a federal contract. But neither Trump nor other senior officials made any mention of the Trilogy Evo Universal. Nor did HHS officials explain why they did not force Philips to accelerate delivery of these ventilators earlier this year, when it became clear that the virus was overwhelming medical facilities around the world.
An HHS spokeswoman told ProPublica that Philips had agreed to make the Trilogy Evo Universal ventilator “as soon as possible.” However, a Philips spokesman said the company has no plan to even begin production anytime this year.
Instead, Philips is negotiating with a White House team led by Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to build 43,000 more complex and expensive hospital ventilators for Americans stricken by the virus. (Full article.)
And now earlier this week, FierceBiotech is reporting that Philips has been recalling about 5.5 million of their ventilators for the past year-and-a-half, because the ventilators are faulty and are killing and injuring people.
Nearly a year-and-a-half into Philips’ recall of about 5.5 million of its CPAP and BiPAP machines and other respiratory devices, complaints about the affected machines are still rolling in.
Between Aug. 1 and Oct. 31, the FDA received more than 21,000 new medical device reports (MDRs) from Philips, healthcare providers, consumers and patients, according to the agency’s latest update on the matter, published Tuesday.
Of those recall-related complaints, 91 included reports of patient deaths. Others described a range of non-fatal injuries, including cancer, pneumonia, asthma, infection, headache, difficulty breathing, dizziness, chest pain and more.
The recall began after Philips received dozens of reports describing how the polyester-based polyurethane foam used to muffle sound and vibrations in many of its respiratory devices could break down over time, sending potentially dangerous chemicals and debris into the airway—though documents submitted in court have since revealed that Philips knew about the foam breakdown issue at least a few years before beginning the formal recall.

As I wrote in the article I published a few days ago, The Greatest Lie Ever Told, the great harm the COVID-19 vaccines are causing gets all the headlines these days, and rightfully so, but let’s not forget all the innocent people killed and maimed by our corrupt government and hospital system besides just the experimental vaccines.
How many people have been murdered by the ventilator scandal now? Where is the justice?
There can be no doubt today that the U.S. Medical System is the #1 cause of death, and that one of the most dangerous places one can go today to put one’s life in danger of being murdered, are U.S. hospitals.
Does the Medical Device Industry Have More Power than Big Pharma?
This corruption with medical devices such as ventilators which are literally killing people, is not new, and most certainly did not begin with COVID, even though COVID government funding did produce instant millionaires just from selling face masks. See:

In 2018 Netflix published a documentary called The Bleeding Edge which exposed the dark side of the $300 billion-a-year medical device industry, that insiders claim is “more powerful than Big Pharma.” Here is our coverage of that documentary, and here is the trailer:
In March of 2019, Kaiser Health News published an investigation into the FDA and their public database that tracks medical device failures.
Their investigation found that the FDA maintains a hidden database that records malfunctions of medical devices that is not available to the public.
Dr. Douglas Kwazneski was helping a Pittsburgh surgeon remove an appendix when something jarring happened. The surgical stapler meant to cut and seal the tissue around the appendix locked up.
Kwazneski later turned to the Food and Drug Administration’s public database that tracks medical device failures and “there was nothing,” he said. Yet when he surveyed leading surgeons on the matter, he discovered that more than two-thirds had experienced a stapler malfunction, or knew a peer who did. Such failures can have deadly consequences.
Kwazneski had no idea the FDA had quietly granted the makers of surgical staplers a special “exemption” allowing them to file reports of malfunctions in a database hidden from doctors and from public view.
“I don’t want to sound overdramatic here, but it seemed like a cover-up,” said Kwazneski, who practiced in Pasco County, Fla., from 2016 through earlier this year. (Full article.)
As I have stated numerous times in the past, the COVID-19 scam did not corrupt the medical system, the corrupt medical system gave us COVID-19.
That corruption has existed for decades now, and COVID-19 was their climax, driving out most of the remaining honest people from the system who truly cared for their patients.
The U.S. medical system is not a system that can be reformed. It is an evil system ruled by profits and control, and it needs to be burned down to the ground, and alternative health systems with no interference from the U.S. Government must arise, where people are actually cared for and healed.
