5G: Oxygen Absorption?

< 2001: “Point-to-point wireless systems operating at 60 GHz have been used for many years by the intelligence community for high security communications and by the military for satellite-to-satellite communications. Their interest in this frequency band stems from a phenomenon of nature: the oxygen molecule (O2) absorbs electromagnetic energy at 60 GHz like a piece of food in a microwave oven.” – (Source:, emphasis added)

10 April 2001: “Fixed Wireless Communications at 60GHz Unique Oxygen Absorption Properties” “At the millimeter wave frequency of 60GHz, the absorption is very high, with 98 percent of the transmitted energy absorbed by atmospheric oxygen.” – Source

1 May 2005: “The absorption profile was recorded in the range 45–96 GHz for laboratory air and pure oxygen at atmospheric pressure…” – Volume 231, Issue 1, May 2005, Journal of Molecular Spectroscopy

 4 March 2012: “At 60 GHz, the oxygen molecule becomes highly absorbent of electromagnetic energy….” – “Sub10 Systems: Oxygen absorption makes 60 GHz Perfect for Backhaul”

23 October 2018: “Countless Studies Show 5G Frequencies Cause Illness” “People suspect the 5G frequencies will cause problems having to do with oxygen.” – Source

26 April 2019: “The 60GHz range is also known as the Oxygen Absorption Band. At 60GHz, 98% of electromagnetic energy is absorbed by 02.” – Meta Switch

“This is Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell, ER and Critical Care Doctor from New York City. Nine days ago, I opened an intensive care unit to care for the sickest COVID-positive patients in this city.

In these 9 days, I have seen things I have never seen before. In treating these patients, I have witnessed medical phenomenon that just don’t make sense in the context of treating a disease that is supposed to be a viral pneumonia.

Nine days ago I presumed I was opening an intensive care unit to treat patients with a virus causing a pneumonia that was ravaging lungs across the world, starting out as something mild — a cough, a sore throat, and progressively increasing in severity until ultimately ending in something called “Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome” or ARDS.

This IS the paradigm that every hospital in the country is working under. This is the disease (ARDS) that every hospital is preparing to treat, and this is the disease (ARDS) for which in the next 2 to 6 weeks, 100,000 Americans might be put on a ventilator.

And yet, everything I have seen in the last nine days — all the things that just don’t make sense, the patients I’m seeing in front of me, the lungs I’m trying to improve — have led to me to believe that COVID-19 is not this disease, and that we are operating under a medical paradigm that is untrue.

In short, I believe we are treating the wrong disease and I fear that this misguided treatment will lead to a tremendous amount of harm to a great number of people in a very short time.

As New York City appears to be about 10 days ahead of the country, I feel compelled to get this information out. COVID-19 lung disease, as far as I can see, is not a pneumonia and should not be treated as one.

Rather, it appears as some kind of viral-induced disease most resembling some sort of high-altitude sickness. It is as if tens of thousands of my fellow New Yorkers are on a plane at 30,000 feet and the cabin pressure is slowly being let out. These patients are slowly being starved of oxygen. I’ve seen patients dependent on oxygen take off their oxygen and quickly progress through a state of anxiety and emotional distress and eventually get blue in the face and while they look like patients absolutely on the brink of death, they do not look like patients dying of pneumonia.

I have never been a mountain climber and I do not know the conditions at base camp below the highest peaks in the world, but I suspect that the patients I’m seeing in front of me look most like as if a person was dropped off from the top of Mount Everest without time to acclimate. 

I don’t know the final answer of this disease but I’m quite sure that a ventilator is not it. That is not to say we don’t need ventilators, we absolutely need them; they are the only way at this time that we are able to give a little more oxygen to patients who need it. But when we treat people with ARDS, uh, we typically use ventilators to treat what’s called respiratory failure. That is, we use the ventilator to do the work that the patient’s muscles can no longer do because they’re too tired to do it. These patient’s muscles work fine. I fear that we are… I fear that if we are using a false paradigm to treat a new disease, that the method that we program the ventilator — one based on a notion of respiratory failure as opposed to oxygen failure — that this method (and there are a great number of methods that we can use with the ventilator) but this method being widely adopted at this very moment in every hospital in the country, which aims to increase pressure on the lungs in order to open them up, is actually doing more harm than good. And that the pressure we are providing, that we are providing to lungs, we may be providing to lungs that cannot stand it, that cannot take it. And that the ARDS that we are seeing, that the whole world is seeing, may be nothing more than lung injury caused by the ventilator.

Now, I don’t know the final answer to this disease. Uh, I do sense that we will HAVE to use ventilators; we will have to use a great many number of ventilators, and we need a great many number of ventilators, but I sense that we can use them in a much safer way, in a much safer method.

That safer method challenges long-held, dogmatic beliefs within the medical community and among lung specialists which will not be easy to overcome. But I really believe that they must be overcome; there are hundreds of thousands of lungs in this country at risk and the time to overcome them [this] is now.

I am confident that if those of us that work bedside with these patients, those of us who are witnessing the things that we have never seen before despite the many years we have worked and the thousands of patients and diseases we have seen, if we can effectively communicate this to all those that are so important but who are not bedside — the researchers, the administrators, those who procure our resources and make our protocols, the politicians, our own governments — if we are able to convince them that this is a disease that is different than ANYTHING we have ever seen, I’m confident that an answer can be found, that effective treatments can be discovered, and that a plan to disseminate that treatment can be rapidly deployed, and that tens of thousands and probably hundreds of thousands of lives and lungs will be protected.

The time for this is now. We are staring into a future in which a great many of our fellow Americans are going to suffer. Not to mention people all around the world. For those who will not suffer directly from this disease, from the terrible human cost of the disease, for those who will not lose a family member or a friend (and there will be a great many number of people who will lose those close to them), but for those who don’t, they are still going to suffer from the great economic cost of COVID-19. We are all involved in this future, so I urge you for those of us… If you are out there, for those who work bedside, I urge you to speak up.

We can, we can change this.

I thank you all for listening, please spread the message and stay safe.
