Covid-19 Discussion with an ER Doctor from the Front Lines

by | April 25, 2020

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:

  1. What are the unusual symptoms and different courses of disease experienced by many individuals with Covid-19 who present to the ER?
  2. What is the surprising co-morbidity that those hospitalized with Covid-19 have?
  3. Who should we test now, what are the options for testing and what is the future of testing?
  4. 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.
