Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"I didn't know I was pregnant," a reality show broadcast by MTV, epitomizes generations of US Americans' knowledge base and experience with essential human physiology. While steeped in idioms of pop culture, including but not limited to "mysteries" or "politicization" of divinity on earth--such as the false brain/body dichotomy, "battles" with irreversible cellular damage (disease) projected by so-called survivors onto mechanical equipment and organ transplants, professional and corporate "personhood"--anatomy is not well understood.

The Lancet summarizes a group of clinical observations. It is informative--not prescriptive. These confirm predictable, irreversible organ damage (or secondary conditions) caused by chronic pulmonary (lung) diseases whose etiology and treatment are extremely well-documented but not likely comprehensible to readers unfamiliar with medical jargon and anatomical nomenclature.

But they've witnessed friends and family disabled over time by "common" respiratory "ailments" for which no cure exists, and the "standard of care" is systematically indicated by subsequent degrees of organ failure and contra-indicated by differential treatment plans ordered by each speciality, isolating so to speak each anatomical sub-system of the human body. They fear dependencies of the infirm in their homes and resent the costs of obtaining "life-saving" weapons.

Dr. Carla Sevin, director of the ICU Recovery Center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, said: "If you still need oxygen, you probably need a pulmonologist. If you have heart issues, you probably need a cardiologist. But for some of these other symptoms, it's not really clear who the best person is to see you.

Conversely, NBC News speaks the language of the US American "consumer-patient" accustomed to "a 'unique care plan'" and might well expect novel, "re-imagining" replacement of five vital organs of the human body inexplicably permeated by SARS-CoV-2.
