Yesterday, I had an opportunity to talk to Dr. Tricia Thompson, a fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians and board certified emergency medicine physician, as well as integrative medicine physician, about Covid-19.
What have been her observations and experience on the front lines?
What do we currently know?
What do we need to research further?
We share evidence-based information that is known to date (this was recorded on April 24, 2020) and answer the following questions:
- What are the unusual symptoms and different courses of disease experienced by many individuals with Covid-19 who present to the ER?
- What is the surprising co-morbidity that those hospitalized with Covid-19 have?
- Who should we test now, what are the options for testing and what is the future of testing?
- Can we do anything about the outcome of Covid-19?
Note that this conversation is not intended to be an overview of all aspects of the above Covid-19 topics, but rather an inquiry into specific questions, observations and research.
For up to date information on Covid-19, go to the CDC website.
To your health,
Dr. Bojana Jankovic Weatherly
