Colds are especially severe for men ... believe me I know.
The Münster University Hospital has set up an intensive care unit exclusively for the treatment of male patients suffering from coughs, colds, or even both. A specially trained team provides 24/7 care.
This “long overdue treatment site”, as Chief Physician Dr Klaus Schaffers, MD, calls it, will primarily serve men between the ages of 18 and 85. “It is well known, that this group are particularly severely affected by colds, and therefore need intensive care in order to save their lives.” - Read more here.
I called my doctor and several ERs but not one local hospital has an ICU for men with colds yet.
I picked up my severe cold from Mark Shea I think - from his "I'm deathly ill" post. (People - do not post when you are sick.)
I'm not sure I can survive this one. I've been in bed for twelve hours.
