Intensive Care Unit for Men With Colds


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.

  1. I hope you will make every effort to rest, take your fluids (hot cinnamon tea or chicken soup or both,) take an aspirin (if you're not allergic,) keep your phone handy.
    Just let the cold run its course y con el favor de Dios, you are gonna be fine.

    Be assured of my prayers. I will ask our Lady and St. Joseph to be there with you while you recover. ^^)

    1. I ventured out to Walgreens and got lots of stuff. Then I went to the store and bought soup and ginger ale and I can't recall what else.

  2. I thought the problem was that men are just really whiny when they're sick? What?

    1. No, that's not true. I have no idea how I'm even still alive right now. I lost count on how many times I almost died from the common cold.

  3. Fresh ginger root is good for a cold. Fresh parsley is good too.
