I suggest an experiment: we already have an epidemiological track recording outcomes of those intubated with COVID-19 who received standard sedation with, benzodiazapines, most likely The question is simple: would intubation using barbiturate such as seconal for the sedative give a lower death rate? Higher? The same? Likewise, where a steroid is used, would the result be different with dexamethasone as opposed to salmedrol? These are valid questions and I pose no answer as such: I merely plause valid questions and propose experiments.
