In Episode 25 of Dr. Dave On Call, we discuss the neurological effects of COVID-19 with Neurocritical care specialist, Dr. Eric Liotta of Northwestern Medicine.
Many individuals who have experienced COVID-19 have encountered neurological symptoms. For example, loss of taste and smell have been pathognomonic for the disease. However, many patients have experienced other neurological symptoms such as stroke, malaise, numbness, "brain fog", weakness, etc.
We have received much feedback from our listeners regarding their neurological symptoms and thought it would be best to discuss these symptoms with a Neurological specialist, Dr. Eric Liotta. Dr. Liotta is Assistant Professor of Neurocritical Care and Surgery at Northwestern Medicine, Feinberg School of Medicine. He has been on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, treating severely ill patients in the Neurocritical ICU. Further, he has had the opportunity to follow both severely and mildly ill patients in his clinic throughout the pandemic and has valuable insight into the neurological sequelae of COVID-19. We are honored to speak with him.
