    The Effect of Hearing Loss on Cognitive Decline

    The Effect of Hearing Loss on Cognitive Decline

Michael Johns III, MD, online editor for JAMA Otolaryngology, speaks with Justin Golub, MD, MS, assistant professor of otolaryngology at Columbia University, whose research has shown that very mild hearing loss can be associated with cognitive disability.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Ventilatory Management for COVID-Related Respiratory Failure

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Ventilatory Management for COVID-Related Respiratory Failure

    Management of COVID-19-related respiratory failure differs from what is necessary for ARDS. Rather than having alveolar edema, COVID-19 patients have pulmonary vascular dysregulation. Gas exchange is severely compromised with little reduction in lung compliance. Ventilatory support for COVID-19 patients requires higher than normal tidal volumes with minimal PEEP and allowance for higher than usual serum CO2 levels. How the unique pathophysiology of respiratory failure should be treated is discussed by John J. Marini, MD, professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota.
