    Cardiac Considerations for Athletes with COVID-19

    Cardiac Considerations for Athletes with COVID-19

     

    A new wrinkle in returning to sports following infection with COVID-19 emerged in recent weeks. There is concern about potential effects of the virus on the heart. With sudden cardiac death in athletes a concern for all of us in sports medicine, any issues that could cause cardiac damage may get your Spidey Sense tingling. On April 24th, a blog in British Journal of Sports Medicine written by two of my guests today, Dr. Kim and Dr. Martinez, as well as a few other prominent physicians in the area of sports cardiology, was published and I believe was the first to call attention to this topic. A recent article from May 13 was then published as a viewpoint in JAMA Cardiology expanding this concern and providing an algorithm with suggestions in evaluation and management for athletes with COVID.  Today’s podcast will touch on these expert opinion recommendations and hope to provide additional clarity as to the level of concern we should have in dealing with our athletes who may have had been infected with COVID-19.

    Returning to Sports During a Pandemic with Dr. Jason Newland

    Returning to Sports During a Pandemic with Dr. Jason Newland

     

    It’s been a long several months with stay-at-home orders, a lack of consistent nationwide recommendations of what should and should not be done, and a lot of empty gyms and vacant fields. COVID-19 has certainly thrown all of our lives for a loop. It’s also a little humbling to become a less essential physician when a virus is wreaking havoc around the world but there has been certainly a lot lower demand for a sports medicine physician during this slow down. But as we start to see the curve flattening of cases and deaths and an actual decline in positive test rates around the country, considerations are needing to be made as how do we safely reintroduce kids back to sports.

    Missouri received some extra attention this past week as baseball and softball tournaments were already happening less than a week after our governor stopped the stay at home order. Social distancing was still to be the norm, however, in many team sports and when you are dealing with a lot of pre-teen kids, that’s a little hard to enforce and make happen efficiently.

    In response to this quick restart of sports, several sports medicine and infectious disease specialists from the St Louis area including those from Washington University School of Medicine, Mercy and SSM Health Systems worked together to create a document to help guide kids back safely into youth sports. Today on the podcast I’ll be joined by Dr. Jason Newland, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at St Louis Children’s Hospital and a key part of the team that put these recommendations together to hash out what’s in the documents and some of the reasoning behind it

    Wilderness Medicine with Dr. Andrew Gregory

    Wilderness Medicine with Dr. Andrew Gregory

     

    Sports Medicine doesn’t just apply to the organized sports we see at a park, field or in a gymnasium. The great outdoors is the greatest playground in existence. Being active with hiking, backcountry running, mountain biking, climbing, and kayaking, whether in a competitive setting or not, brings its own unique challenges. Today on the Podcast, we are going to take you out of your typical comfort zone in the clinic or training room and discuss some important things to think about if you cover outdoor competitive events or if you like to get a little adventurous  on your own. It’s time to talk Wilderness Medicine!

    Navigating Return to Learn After Concussion for Health Care Providers

    Navigating Return to Learn After Concussion for Health Care Providers

     

    For the last several decades, there’s been a tremendous focus in the world of concussion on areas such as recognizing when a concussion occurs, various diagnostic evaluations, treatment recommendations and determining when it’s an appropriate time to return to play sports after a concussion. However, it’s only really been the last eight or nine years that there’s been more emphasis, at least on a wider scale, of how to help kids in school when they’re dealing with their concussion, typically what we refer to as Return To Learn.

    In this episode we are going to be discussing the topic of Returning To Learn with leading experts in this field and ways that YOU as a healthcare professional dealing with concussion can best support students in their return to the classroom. This information is also beneficial to teachers, parents and the students themselves. This is Return to Learn on the Pediatric Sports Medicine Podcast.
