My knowledge of this is a little dated now.

I've no idea if the inventor of the 'Vanessa' capsule was the first to suggest non invasive ventilation but I doubt it. Mr Google had no hits under Vanessa Capsule when I looked this morning although the inventer could have published his findings under some other title.



It seems that you didn't watch the video. It's not the first ... but it's cheap and good, they say.
The video has legends in english. Here a link with text in english.

I got a few hits, all dating around the end of May from Brazil. As you say trying to avoid forced ventilation at all cost seems to be standard practice these days and has saved many lives.

Seems like nothing new to see here though.

it seems that towns accept to use that device (vanessa capsules) only when the health system is collapsed.

Hi Look

The "vanessa capsule" you've linked to will go some way to solving space problems when there is overcrowding in the hospital
- specifically where you cannot isolate COVID patients from the uninfected

Doing this is a good idea because the process of NIV has been shown to disperse pathogens exhaled by a patient (they need to exhale, the virus is in their respiratory tract and the system is not closed to the outside world - so add a bit of positive pressure and the exhaled virus is dispersed quite effectively)
- having a bit of a small negative pressure enclosure works as an extractor for these unwanted bits

So if you have no other option this will help; it would be nicer though to be treated in a sealed room by staff who are suitably protected, rather than spend your treatment under a plastic bubble

The actual ventilation in the video is being done by a ResMed Stellar 150 (https://www.resmed.com/au/en/healthcare ... r-150.html)
- these are very good devices for this purpose

We see today there were 846 “cases” of the virus reported to Worldometers.

DAK the makeup of these people in all the usual parameters please?

This site calculates your age from a virus point of view.

Luckily I came out a little lower than real age. Mrs F was a little higher.

Ach well, they win.

Today was my last day at daily cycling. Since I started back in March I've clocked up nearly 1500 miles and only filled the car up once, but it's just getting too busy now. Probably about 80% of my run is on a pretty (in parts) dilapidated cyclepath but that's better than nothing. The other 20% is on roads and crossing junctions etc. If it's not the impatient dickheads in their outsized crates it's the constant noise and pollution.

And with the schools going back tomorrow, it's going to be far worse.

So, they win and tomorrow I pick up my car keys. There was a golden chance to change things, but the popular option of just hopping in the car is seemingly well endorsed by the government, so who am I to fight it?

Depressing.

In London it looks like some real effort has gone into cycle lanes.

Yes I noticed that too the other day on a trip in. Some of the new cycle lanes actually have their own pair of bike-priority traffic lights at junctions, in much the same way as some of the bus lanes have. Obeyed to my surprise by about 90% of the cyclists out on the day I was there..
