At the start of the pandemic, Covid patients with very low oxygen levels were put on ventilators, the standard treatment for severe respiratory illness. However, some doctors found that critically ill patients responded better to non-invasive ventilation such as high-flow nasogastric tubes. They shared their findings with other doctors, and gentler oxygen support became the norm. This change in treatment has saved tens of thousands of lives.
But under a new bill proposed by Democratic lawmakers in California, it would have been illegal. The law would oblige the state medical association to take action against doctors found to be spreading “misinformation” regarding the “nature and risks of the virus, its prevention and treatment”; and the development, safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.”
