The latest large retrospective study shows it actually increased mortality in hospitalized patients so I’m no longer using it for positive people who are mildly ill. In fact the simple answer is being in the ER if they go home I don’t really know what happened unless they come back dead; but even then I might never know. And if they get admitted because they’re sick enough I’m not the one making that decision. So I’ve kind of had my mind changed for now because there’s no evidence at this point that it works to keep people who are mildly sick from getting really sick or die and there’s no evidence that it has any prophylactic efficacy. I don’t know a single ER Doc who’s taking it and we did a poll of members of our private EM Docs FB page and only a handful said they’re taking it prophylactically. By the way, I’m no longer in NYC, working for a large University Health Center in their rural ERs. I also work in a Level 1 Trauma Center for another University Center in the same area.
