Is anyone aware of the big reduction in deaths being report by Paul Malik in the USA.
P. E. Marik, V. Khangoora, R. Rivera, M. H. Hooper, J. Catravas. Chest 151 (2017) 1229-1238.
He uses intravenous vitamin C to raise blood pressure (Vitamin C is a co-factor required for synthesis of the pressor agents dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine. It plummets to about 1/3rd normal levels during septic shock). This may be antibiotic sparing as it leads to much more rapid recovery. Thoughts?
