Summary of Trauma-Surgery

Did you know?

  • You can easily improve outcomes of many planned surgeries by increasing vitamin D ahead of time
    • Cancer surgery is the only known exception - extra Vitamin D is OK only if doctor reduces the chemo doses
  • A loading dose of Vitamin D also improves unplanned hospital admissions
  • Improvements include
    • Shorter recovery time
    • Shorter ICU time
    • Reduced deaths – in hospital, next month, next year
    • Reduced Sepsis = blood poisoning = infection

High Dose Vitamin D in the (COVID) ICU - video May 2023

Dr. Eduardo Beltran
In this video, we shall talk about HLD (600K IU of vitamin D3) that was used in the intensive care unit (Brazil & Bolivia) used in patients who were diagnosed with SCV-2. Patients received their D3 via an NG tube while being intubated and connected to a ventilator. 26 out of 28 patients survived. The results speak for themselves.
