The BREATHE Center was proud to host a special 3-part series, After COVID-19: Anticipating Needs for Respiratory and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation, as part of our popular Social & Science. The goal was to hear from those on the “front lines” of the pandemic and related research to better understand COVID-19, with an emphasis on projecting future rehabilitation needs in the post-COVID era. If you missed the series, you can review the PDF (Week 1) and see the videos (Weeks 2 and 3) below:
- Week 1: “Clinical observations in COVID from a respiratory physiologist” (PDF) presented by Atul Malhotra and Amy Bellinghausen of UC San Diego.
- Week 2: “Potential involvement of the neuronal and muscle systems in the response to and recovery from COVID-19 infection” (video link) presented by BREATHE Center members Thomas Clanton (Applied Physiology & Kinesiology) and Russell Hepple (Physical Therapy). The Ad-Hoc International Task Force Report discussed in the video is available at the European Respiratory Society blog.
- Week 3: “Shortness of breath, hypoxemia, and COVID-19” (video link) presented by UF’s Paul Davenport and Jorge Lascano.
