It’s not just Hillary Clinton’s security detail that is helping to hold up the Democratic presidential nominee.
Following her collapse at a September 11th memorial event on Sunday, mainstream media outlets have rushed to Clinton’s defense.
Even after a Clinton physician acknowledged that she had pneumonia, CNN dismissed months of concern regarding Clinton’s health and well-being as a “conservative conspiracy.”
And the Clinton campaign tried to write off the pneumonia as no big deal, and claimed that Clinton would be healthy as a horse soon.
But given Clinton’s medical history, there’s no way anyone should be making that claim. Pneumonia is, in fact, especially dangerous for Clinton — and nobody in the media is talking about it.
Clinton has a well-known history of blood clots, and getting pneumonia is like throwing gasoline on that fire.
An individual with a history of pneumonia has a much greater risk of developing a blood clot in the lungs, and that could cause a deadly pulmonary embolism (a blockage in a lung artery), according to the “Physicians’ Desk Reference,” which is like a holy text for the medical community.
In addition, a 2009 UK study found that blood clots and sepsis “were common and persistent in [community-acquired pneumonia] patients, even among the least ill.”
Worse still, research has found that people with pneumonia have a heightened risk of serious heart problems, and that the enhanced risk lasts for months.
In other words, given Clinton’s medical history, getting pneumonia this badly is potentially quite serious. There is a significant risk that the threat from Clinton’s bout of pneumonia that caused her Sunday collapse isn’t over, but just beginning.
The disease significantly increases Clinton’s chances of a heart attack, sepsis, pulmonary embolism, or fatal blood clots.
This is what the media should be reporting on, given Clinton’s history. It’s something voters have a right to know.
Still a conspiracy theory, CNN?
Having had 3 bouts of Pneumonia myself, I was immediately hospitalized. While in hospital, my doctors sent me down to X-Ray several times during my illness checking on pulmonary embolism, (blood clots). Also I had to do a stress test to check on my heart.
Dr. Samadi from Fox News stated that after the “medical event” she had should have been taken to the hospital asap so she could be monitored by a team of doctors, one of which would be a Pulmonary specialist. While I had pneumonia a pulmonary doctor was assigned to me. Dr. Samadi also stated that she should have received IVs for dehydration and antibiotics. This is of course if she really has pneumonia.
