What is Innovative Intensive Care

Published on December 5, 2018

Deep within the heart of western medicine is a wisdom and power that is deliberately stymied by medical authorities and the pharmaceutical companies that stand behind them. Inside the emergency room and intensive care wards, where many believe some of the most accurate medicine is practiced, are common but extraordinarily safe and effective substances that save lives every day. Interesting no one has thought to harness these medical super weapons against chronic disease and cancer.

Every doctor who works with critical care knows of magnesium chloride, sodium bicarbonate, iodine, potassium and even injectable selenium. These basic minerals can be used to save lives in hospital settings as well as at home where they can be safely used. Sodium bicarbonate, potassium chloride, and calcium chloride are used to maintain pH and electrolytes within normal values in intensive care units.

These strongest natural medicines can be used at home many times a day at high enough doses to safely effect strong changes in a person’s medical situation, even if they are at or near death’s door. This natural not pharmaceutical. One can apply these lifesaving medicinals around the clock at home orally, transdermally (topically), and via nebulization, enemas, feeding tubes, baths and even intravenous methods if a nurse is available. These substances all heal through fulfillment of nutritional law.

These kinds of medicines address the root causes of disease, the basic causes that are fundamentally the same for everyone no matter what the symptoms or how each person’s disease manifests. Low oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, nutritional deficiencies, chemical poisoning, radiation exposure, pharmaceutical drug toxicities, emotional trauma and stress, dehydration as well as high-sugar diets and lack of exercise are common causes of chronic disease that drugs, surgery, chemo and radiation therapy do little or nothing to address.

Sodium bicarbonate, a common emergency room medicine, acts as a powerful, natural and safe antifungal agent, which when combined with iodine, covers the entire spectrum of microbial organisms. The efficacy of sodium bicarbonate against certain bacteria and fungi has been documented but its role as a disinfectant against viruses is not generally known. Sodium bicarbonate at concentrations of 5% and above was found to be effective with 99.99% reduction of viral titers on food contact surfaces within a contact time of 1 min.

In the emergency room and ICU medicines have to be safe while delivering an instant lifesaving burst of healing power. Obviously if they are safe and strong enough for emergency situations they are going to help us with chronic diseases and acute ones as well.

Research suggests that administering sodium bicarbonate in intravenous (IV) form can significantly improve pH and Pco2 in children with life-threatening asthma. Respiratory distress and level of consciousness both improved after the administration of sodium bicarbonate.

Buysse CMP, de Jongste JC, de Hoog M. Life-threatening asthma in children: treatment with sodium bicarbonate reduces Pco2. Chest. 2005;127:866-870.

Corinne M. P. Buysse, MD, and colleagues retrospectively evaluated the use of sodium bicarbonate in 17 children with life-threatening asthma. Sixteen of these children had acidosis, indicating severe respiratory distress. The acidosis was classified as mixed respiratory and metabolic in 13 patients, predominantly respiratory in one patient, and metabolic in two patients. In one patient, the initial blood gas values before administration of sodium bicarbonate in the referring hospital could not be traced. A new protocol was initiated using IV magnesium sulfate and IV sodium bicarbonate as adjunctive therapy when respiratory distress persisted despite standard treatment. According to Dr. Buysse, a pediatric intensivist at the Erasmus MC–Sophia Children’s Hospital in Rotterdam, Netherlands, “Administration of sodium bicarbonate was associated with a significant decrease in Pco2 in 17 children with life-threatening asthma. Improvement of respiratory distress was observed as well.”

Sodium Bicarbonate Injection: USP is administered by the intravenous route. In cardiac arrest, a rapid intravenous dose of one to two 50 mL vials (44.6 to 100 mEq) may be given initially and continued at a rate of 50 mL (44.6 to 50 mEq) every 5 to 10 minutes if necessary (as indicated by arterial pH and blood gas monitoring) to reverse the acidosis. Caution should be observed in emergencies where very rapid infusion of large quantities of bicarbonate is indicated. Bicarbonate solutions are hypertonic and may produce an undesirable rise in plasma sodium concentration in the process of correcting the metabolic acidosis. In cardiac arrest, however, the risks from acidosis exceed those of hypernatremia.

Two minutes after intubation, premature ventricular contractions, ventricular fibrillation, bradycardia, and finally cardiac arrest were recognized. An increase of serum potassium from 3.19 to 8.64 mmol/L was observed in arterial blood. The patient was immediately resuscitated with chest compressions, intravenous adrenaline, atropine, lidocaine, and sodium bicarbonate.[3]

A recent Cochrane Review updating their 2009 conclusions on measures taken during cardiac surgeries to prevent post-operative atrial fibrillation or   supraventricular tachycardia  looked at one hundred and eighteen studies with 138 treatment groups and 17,364 participants. Fifty-seven of these studies were included in the original version of this review while 61 were added, including 27 on interventions that were not considered in the original version. Interventions evaluated included amiodarone, beta-blockers, sotalol, magnesium, atrial pacing and posterior pericardiotomy. The use of magnesium preventively showed a reduction in the rate of atrial fibrillation, a decrease in the length of hospital stay and cost of hospital treatment and a possible decrease in the rate of stroke.
