Dr. Pinney on the NYC Epicenter - COVID-19 Hub

3 years 16 Views

Dr. Sean Pinney provides an overview of Mount Sinai Health System's efforts to combat COVID-19 in New York City, including the importance of systemic anticoagulation as "now more than ever we're beginning to realize that COVID illness is really a thrombotic disorder." He also tells us that if he'd known a month ago what he knows now, he wishes they'd organized proning teams sooner – teams of nurses and assistants who can go through the mechanics of turning over patients while on a ventilator as there are a number of technical challenges he'd never considered. The ACC has established a COVID-19 Hub at https://www.acc.org/COVID19, which is updated daily to provide the most recent and relevant clinical guidance, clinical perspectives, and more.
