    #315 Long COVID

    #315 Long COVID

    Explore the actively evolving clinical landscape of Long COVID as we discuss epidemiology, pathogenesis, manifestations, and patient-centered management options including the role of a dedicated Long COVID clinic. 




    Listen as our expert guest Dr. Monica Verduzco-Gutierrez @MVGutierrezMD (Long School of Medicine at UT Health, San Antonio) helps us navigate this rapidly emerging syndrome. This episode will empower you to provide evidence based, patient-centered care for this challenging facet of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We explore the manifestations including fatigue, dyspnea, psychiatric symptoms, and other neurologic effects.  We also examine the emergence of dedicated Long COVID clinics and the imperative of interdisciplinary care.



    Update: The original version of this episode contained a brief, but incorrect characterization of  mast cell disorders that was subsequently removed after feedback from our allergy/immunology colleagues. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank our colleagues for their peer review.

Great CME!

My favourite CME podcast! Fun, interesting, informative. Really easy to listen to. I never skip the first 10 min - it’s some of the best parts - and I’m not a terrible person (joke on the podcast). Highly recommend!
