Exciting breakthrough in treatment of sepsis and protocol, from EVMS, posted by Gloria Poole,RN,artist of/in Missouri

In a tweet to me, Gloria poole,Registered Nurse, today to my @tweetie0817 twitter account, I received this info courtesy of Eastern Virginia Medical School for #publichealth teaching:

I quote from the press Release:

"NORFOLK, VA (March 23, 2017) – A critical-care physician at Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) believes he has found something that has eluded medicine for centuries: a cure for sepsis.

Paul Marik, MBBCh, developed the new treatment while caring for patients in the general intensive care unit at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Va. His formula consists of three common compounds given intravenously: vitamin C, steroids and thiamine.

Evidence of the effectiveness of this new treatment is nothing short of astounding.

In a retrospective study, published in CHEST, Dr. Marik and his co-authors compared two groups — treated in the same ICU — before and after discovery of Dr. Marik’s vitamin C protocol. Before the treatment was available, 19 of 47 patients diagnosed with sepsis died from the disease. In contrast, there were no deaths from sepsis among a different group of 47 patients who received the new treatment. A laboratory analysis conducted by scientists at Old Dominion University independently confirmed the treatment’s effectiveness.

Sepsis is a life-threatening complication resulting from an infection. More than 250,000 people in the United States die from sepsis annually, according to the Sepsis Alliance. It is the most common cause of death among hospitalized patients in the U.S. The Global Sepsis Alliance estimates that eight million people die worldwide as a result of sepsis each year."

Here is the word for word protocol Dr Marik developed that prevented all patients he used it for, from dying of sepsis:

"A cure for sepsis?" article was tweeted by NPR and you can also read it:

"Dramatic improvement seen in patient survival in ICU; Chance discovery could transform care of sepsis and save millions of lives worldwide". Read
NPR article on this :

I am posting this information with permission tweeted this morning to me for the good of the world's treatment of sepsis, which before this discovery had a dismal prognosis. This protocol is very good news for doctors and advanced practice nurses, and physicians'assistants around the world. I am not linking the articles because I post art to the web which I create also, and that has caused a tendency for hackers to break in. so, as a protective approach is to provide the url address and let each viewer write it into their web browser, or copy paste web address into web browser. I post all content to this blog for the common good of the health and well-being of the world. the above is a medical approved protocol developed and tested by Dr Paul Marik who is now at Eastern Virginia Medical School. He also provided his C.V. and his biographical info and I included it above. My only motive in posting this info is saving lives. I do not profit from this blog in any way, nor do I accept donations for it. It is a labor of love.

Thanks to the readers of the previous post of this blog from US, France, Ukraine, Germany and Russia. I have readers and twitter followers in 74 countries of world and you can see that list of countries on my of 23rd March 2017.

I do however own the copyright to this blog as an entirety especially to the sketches I have added as illustrations from time to time, so see the previous links to see information about me, Gloria Poole,Registered Nurse/artist/author/illustrator/cartoonist/writer/blogger/prolife advocate/Christian/ twice-divorced white woman. It is necessary to make the point that I am white woman because according to Tallahassee Police there is also a black woman who told police her name was Gloria Poole, but she had no proof of that according to that Police years ago. So, I have to clarify that point to avoid confusion. You can see my Feb 2017 selfie :

photo-by-gloriapoole. This is my selfie --one in a series of photographs of myself I, Gloria Poole, Registered Nurse and artist, photographed yesterday with two different cameras after I had cried so hard about the attempt by evil people to destroy me last week. I am posting the different selfies to different blogs as each is different pose, to prove that the fake obituary that was sent to Google was a treacherous scheme of evil people to steal my content and life. I am alive and well except for much trauma to me on two different occasions that left permanent damage to my brain, leg, chest, but I have survived all of that. Copyrighted photo.
