Announcement: 'We Have Been Seeing a Lot of Collapsed Lungs With COVID-19'
Posted: Rossoe @ Sun Aug 09, 2020 1:13 pm
Dr. Hesham A. Hassaballa a NY Times featured Pulmonary and Critical Care Specialist working in Illinois writes a great blog at https://medium.com/@drhassaballa

More recently he's posted many interesting articles on the subject of Covid-19.

And one of particular interest covered the increase in collapsed lungs in more seriously affected patients:

https://medium.com/beingwell/we-have-been-seeing-a-lot-of-collapsed-lungs-with-covid-7043dee6f227

He discusses not only the potential mechanical reason for this:









Quote:
Many times, this can happen when patients are on the ventilator: the high pressures generated by the machine can cause the lungs to rupture and cause lung collapse.



But also poses some thoughts on why this might be happening more with Covid-19 pateients at a cellular level:









Quote:
Our immune fighting cells secrete many enzymes that can destroy healthy lung tissue. These cells don’t care about causing “collateral damage.”
