NIOSH-certified N95 respirators that have not been cleared by the FDA can be used for respiratory protection to reduce the exposures of healthcare personnel in a patient setting to hazardous particulates. These respirators have not been evaluated by FDA to determine whether they meet the fluid and flammability resistance as required for FDA clearance as medical devices. For this reason, they are not intended for use in exposure settings where the performance of a surgical mask to maintain a sterile field is required.

N95 respirators that are both certified by NIOSH and cleared by the FDA as medical devices for use by healthcare personnel are called “surgical N95 respirators.” As with all NIOSH-certified N95 respirators, these products have been evaluated by the NIOSH certification process and have demonstrated that they can filter out a minimum of 95% of airborne particles under worst case test conditions. These products have also been evaluated by the FDA to have demonstrated an acceptable level of fluid and flame resistance, which may be important in healthcare occupational settings, such as surgical suites. The FDA clearance process also requires that these products have labeling that is relevant to healthcare personnel, such as information about the presence of natural rubber latex.

you are confusing the issue. Health care workers, EMTs, First responders...etc do not require surg grade N95 masks...(approved for use by the FDA in a sterile envronment.

The issue is after 'giving The Word from the Surg Gen' that masks don't do any good - stop buying them' They reconsider, do a 180, Add a penaltly for NOT WEARING A MASK

Then Resrtict the Sale....on the very same day the start to require that masks be worn in public.

This cannot be a coincidence.

From what I've seen, doctors do not like to leave patients connected to a ventilator. It not only ties up an expensive piece of equipment, but the patient starts to become dependent on the ventilator. The longer a patient is hooked up, the less that they'll be able to breathe on their own.

So doctors do everything they can to quickly "wean" the patient off the ventilator...like temporarily stopping it for a few seconds or a few minutes or a few hours at a time, and watching the vital signs like blood pressure, blood oxygen percentage, pulse, things like that.

Nobody will be let out of the hospital immediately after being disconnected from a ventilator...they'll spend a while just lying in a bed first, to make sure that they can breathe on their own.

fwiw it not a pleasant pic-nik to be intubated to a ventillator

in fact it is a rather nasty experience, perish thoughts of just 3 days
and expect long-term side consequences, some nasty, IF u get released from ICU after 6-12 days of lying sedated on your back

Bottom Line
It is preferable to leave it to someone else
if at all possible

Millions of N95 masks keep surfacing. So why is there still a shortage?
Reasons vary as to why so many companies have these high-end respirators stashed away in warehouses.

These massive discoveries seem to be happening with some frequency. The most recently reported discovery happened in an Indiana warehouse, where government officials found nearly 1.5 million expired N95 masks.

the CDC reported that “certain N95 models beyond their manufacturer-designated shelf life will be protective.”

The San Francisco Chronicle explains that the issue with the expired masks isn’t the respirator itself; the elastic band that holds the mask on the wearer’s face can degrade over time, preventing a tight seal.

They are not the cheap pieces of junk that the masses have been led to believe. They are basically air pumps with sophisticated computers and sensors. Set one up the wrong way, and the patient will either not breathe any more because they are not getting enough air, or the patient's lungs will blow out because the ventilator is pumping out too much air.

I am biased
- to sell pops uP in stocks

Some Bloomberg :
- "Federal Reserve's Balance Sheet Tops $5 Trillion for First ..."
- "The Federal Reserve is poised to spray trillions of dollars into the U.S. economy"

Under the "expert leadership" of the Phd'd FED collective we have:
- crapp and crappier economic data
- woosy stock market
- financial markets in which NO-ONE other that the FED is a buyer (they call that "impaired market")

Bottom Line
The FED gang is FUBAR into keep on spraying trillions
Spraying Trillions = DLR down

Tariffs on Saudi crude?

There are a lot of headlines coming out of the energy sector after Whiting Petroleum (NYSE:WLL) became the first U.S. shale producer to file for bankruptcy amid an oil price war. The coronavirus epidemic is also weighing heavily on prices, triggering President Trump to summon oil CEOs to the White House tomorrow. Under discussion is potential aid to the industry, including tariffs on oil imports from Saudi Arabia, and a waiver of the Jones Act, which requires American vessels be used to transport goods including oil between U.S. ports.

Today, all years of birth on the list have been removed (see however the last archive version). A strange procedure."

How Draghi's NIRP made the Coronacrisis so much worse.
Reply   
In the times before Draghi, Europe had real interest rates in positive territory.

Most European citizens had savings in the bank which had a real return and which could help them along for a few months in case of misfortune.

Comes along Super Mario, who trying to help Italy borrow more and more, puts Euro interest rates in negative territory.

Consequence, some Europeans start to spend their savings on multiple leisures ( nice cars, second residences in Spain or Greece, expensive Champagne etc ). These are the lucky ones.

Another part starts to invest in the stock market buying super save assets ( airlines, oil companies, banks, car manufacturers etc) Thes are little less lucky.

Comes along the Coronavirus and the lockdown. Nobody has savings because of Draghi's financial repression, the stock markets crash because there is no activity. Governments and the ECB panic.

A lot of this thanks to Super Hero Mario's financial repression which brought him the highest German MEDAL - ORDER OF MERIT.

My grandchildren will not give me €10 when I tell them that I will give them €9.5 back. Why should we?

Negative rates was, is and always will be a crazy concept.

Foot-in-the-door (FITD) technique is a compliance tactic that aims at getting a person to agree to a large request by having them agree to a modest request first.

Odds on they get it.

Note the 'EMOTIONAL' headline:

"Dutch ‘no’ on corona bonds undermines European project"

Note that 'The European Project' until a very short while ago was very, very unpopular right across Europe, except among the Proto-Fascist powers-that-be. FEAR, if you can get it going, can allow our dear leaders to force through all sorts of legislation on the agenda.

Personally I would be very happy to see the European Project undermined but right now.... that's not gonna happen. Calls for solidarity and standing together, yada, yada, yada.

Europe back to the 1920 s

Prime Minister Conte's government is appealing to the European partners to "coordinate" fiscal policy in the EU. Italy, together with other euro countries such as Spain, is calling for so-called "corona bonds" to be issued, i.e. the joint issue of government bonds by the euro countries. However, Germany, in particular, has so far been strictly opposed to this.

One small remark.

Fiscal policy has always been coordinated in the EU( 3% and 60%) but most of the countries including Italy never bothered to follow the rules.
