Sepsis/ARDS Presentations and Advocate
Do you have questions about COVID-19 and how it relates to sepsis and ARDS? There is a lot of information going around about COVID-19 and the novel coronavirus, the virus that causes the disease. And while not a lot is known about the virus and how to treat it, we do know that COVID-19, like any type of infection, can and does cause viral sepsis and ARDS in some people.
Hello Mr. Raikes,
I just wanted to tell you how much both you and your wife touched my heart with the presentation you gave at the ADS conference in Boston.
Your story was so compelling and you are so brave and strong to be able and willing to share it. Please know that you and your wife had a great impact on me and I will share your story and take it with me wherever I go in teaching others about caring for patients.
Thank you again!

First, I wanted to say THANK YOU for sharing your story. The things you taught me about your experience have changed the way I practice. I truly appreciate your willingness to talk about what you went through, it is an incredibly brave thing to do.
