    I just learned that one of my former SCI patients with a C6 injury is in the hospital with COVID-19. Bad diarrhea, fever, & coughing, but has managed to stay off the vent. I worry about him!

          No. Perhaps you are looking for the other thread called "COVID and Quadriplegia".

          Thankfully he never had to go on the vent, although he was on supplemental O2. He was discharged home. They wanted to send him to sub-acute rehab (ie, a nursing home) and he refused (wisely).
