Here's an entire icu running out of oxygen....LA County has started limiting both oxygen and transportation of cardiac arrest patients to hospitals. If EMTs can't start the heart at the scene, and there's low probability of survival, then they can call it at scene. This is nuts and sad.
Amid a surge in COVID-19 cases that have inundated ICUs, the Southern California county is also asking ambulance crews to conserve bottled oxygen.www.npr.org
