Trump's condition on the day of mixed messaging 'relevant' staff, Dr.


White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadow said the president was "very anxious" when he developed a fever and told Fox News over the weekend that the president's blood oxygen levels had dropped "rapidly." "It simply came to our notice then. Friday morning.

"He's not out of the woods," Meadows told Fox News. "They've made incredible improvements since yesterday morning when I found out that many of us - the doctor and I - were very upset."

Meadow's assessment was more serious than hours ago by White House spokesman Sean Conley - who said the president was "doing a great job" - one of the officials' mixed messages about the president's condition. Series. White House officials initially said Trump had a "mild" case of COVID-19, and they have failed to reveal the extent of Trump's symptoms for a long time.

Conley told a briefing in Walter Reed on Saturday morning that the president had been free of fever for 24 hours and was not receiving oxygen at the time. Conley said Trump suffered a mild cough, runny nose and fatigue on Thursday, "all of which are now resolved."

After Trump's physicians and other doctors provided an update on Trump's health, an administration official - later identified as Meadow by the Associated Press and the New York Times - met with reporters and He described the president's condition as "extremely worrying" earlier in the week. "The next 48 hours will be crucial for its maintenance," the official said.

Respecting the White House's request, the poll report sent to the White House Press Corps did not name the official by name. However, in an online video, Meadow Meadows briefed White House poll correspondents after Conley's remarks.

Although White House officials declined to confirm during the week that it was Meadows who made the remarks, the chief of staff provided the same information to Fox News on record over the weekend.

Breaking more than 12 hours of silence on Twitter, Trump posted on Saturday that he was "recovering" and praised the doctors, nurses and other staff at Walter Reid. He later tweeted that members of Congress were encouraged to approve the economic stimulus for the epidemic. He later sent a "come back soon" video message.

Doctors have repeatedly said Trump, 74, was not on oxygen but did not answer specific questions about whether he had received it before, although Trump's medical team denied a report Friday. The president was having trouble breathing.

"They're not on oxygen yet," Conley said, adding that Trump had a mediocre oxygen saturation level of 96% for a healthy person.

But Conley denied that Trump received oxygen before he went to the hospital on Friday, and the Associated Press quoted an unnamed source as saying that oxygen had been administered’ during that time.

White House officials today declined to answer questions from the United States about whether oxygen was’ given.

What to know about oxygen levels

Doctors have monitored the oxygen level in the blood as an indication of whether the oxygen level is low or not.

Dr. Russell Buhr, a professor of pulmonary and critical care medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, said it is not uncommon for people with COVID-19 to need oxygen from time to time. Early in the disease, the coronavirus can damage cells and injure the lungs, allowing oxygen to enter the bloodstream.

"If these cells are damaged, we compensate by providing extra oxygen so the lungs get more oxygen than the air in the room," said Behr, who cared for more than 100 coronavirus patients. Of

Patients with COVID-19 need a little oxygen when they first arrive at the hospital, often when they are already sick at home for between three days and a week.

"Some of them get better and they get better. Some of them get worse," said Jay Randall Curtis, a professor of pulmonary and critical care medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle.

In 3 days

In his opening remarks, Conley said Trump had "only 72 hours to evaluate," which drew much attention to the time when the White House was aware of the president's condition.

Asked why, in particular, Trump has been transferred’ to Walter Reid, Conley pointed out that it is out of extreme caution.

"Because he's the president of the United States," Conley said.

Conley said doctors are performing daily ultrasounds and lab work.

Shortly after Trump arrived at the hospital, the White House issued a memo to Conley indicating that the president was starting remedial therapy. Conley said at the time that Trump was "relaxing."

According to Conley, Trump also received an 8-gram dose of Regeneron's polyclonal antibody cocktail as a precaution. The company said on its page that the antibody cocktail phase is being studied’ in clinical trials and its safety and efficacy have not been fully assessed’ by any regulatory authority.

Trump himself has looked unshakable since the announcement of the self-assessment, and White House officials sought to keep business as usual throughout the day on Friday. On Saturday, officials announced that Trump had signed two resolutions appointing citizen reactionaries to the board of the Smithsonian Institution.

After being silent on Twitter for most of Friday, he posted a message at 11:30 p.m. EST saying things are "welcome, I think!"
