I made an Intubation MEME

Possibly more similar ones to come.

intubation survival rate is low but getting better.

Many sites have differing rates so i'm having trouble pinning down an accurate survival / death ratio

This makes sense to those who are aware that intubation may be necessary IF a person has been affected by COVID to the point where breathing is compromised.

The laryngoscope is a lifting tool, not a prying tool. The idea is to straighten the airway for a gently curved tube, not bend the tube. You also knocked out the bottom teeth. There are many instances when intubation doesn't work.

Here's a study published by the US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health on 11/22/2020. Maybe you include this study in the "they" of "They say..."
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7680614/
Admittedly, in our hyperpresent culture, November, 2020 is ancient news.
