DeTar Family Medicine COVID-19 research saves lives
A clinical research study implemented in Honduras saved 4,000 lives with a standard and multi-mechanism approach.
VICTORIA, Texas – Currently, the numbers show over 1 million confirmed COVID-19 cases in Texas. The local medical community conducted an international coronavirus study in Honduras.
Consequently, the treatment they practiced during their clinical research shows results of saving over 4,000 lives. Dr. Sydney Ontai, Director of DeTar Healthcare System, explains more on the reasons Honduras gave into this COVID-19 treatment so quickly.
“The whole reason that Honduras sort of went out on a limb and used a protocol that hadn’t been vetted in the normal fashion with randomized controlled large studies was because they felt they couldn’t wait. Because this is a lethal disease, and they didn’t have the luxury of having enough intensive care units and enough critical care specialists to just get sick and then just depend on the doctors to fix you,” he said.
All physicians involved configured that statistical process control is under-utilized as a method when conducting medical research. In fact, this approach is often used in business to update technology.
While Honduras is a developing country, their results still showed a significant difference with an ethical affect. The conversation between all physicians involved and the Honduran media emphasized on treatment technicalities, impact, and results.
As the holidays are approaching, Dr. Ontai’s message for the public is to continue taking on both practices in Victoria to save lives in our own nation.
“Once you get sick and I think that we don’t want to really take advantage of that too much either, because this second wave is probably bigger than the first wave and if we get into this complacency. Well, the doctors are going to have all this wonderful stuff to fix us. Let’s just get sick. You know, we’ll have a big Thanksgiving dinner with 100 people and get everybody sick. They’ll figure out something, I don’t think that’s wise,” he said.
