Mayo Clinic Talks Podcast #149
COVID-19 information evolves daily. The views and perspectives shared in these resources are presented based on information available at the time of recording.
When a patient presents with dyspnea how can we reliably predict who will progress to respiratory failure? How can phenotypes of disease progression be utilized for optimizing selection of treatment modalities? Dr. Alex Niven discusses Fleischner Society recommendations for imaging as a COVID-19 screening tool, cytokine storm, ventilator-associated lung injury, ICU delirium, and humanity in critical care.
