Pathway 3

This pathway includes two sessions.

Session 1: COVID-19 ARDS: A Distinct Type, Different From Other Forms of ARDS

In some cases, COVID-19 can cause severe ARDS—but is COVID-19 ARDS distinct or does it differ from other forms of ARDS? Come to this session to hear two experts debate this controversial topic based on what has been learned during the pandemic.

Pro Lecturer: Jaspal Singh, MD, MS, MHA

Con Lecturer: Neil MacIntyre, MD

Session 2: Understanding Silent Hypoxia in COVID-19 Patients: The Myth of Happy Hypoxics

Profound hypoxemia has been a common finding in COVID-19 pneumonia. Early presentations described patients with severe arterial hypoxemia without tachypnea or apparent discomfort. These patients were also said to 'crash' quickly and require intubation and mechanical ventilation. The term happy hypoxic littered medical journals. The issue of silent hypoxia is a well-known physiologic phenomenon related to cardiorespiratory compensation and eventual failure of these mechanisms. Lecturer: Michael Lipnick, MD

This presentation is sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant from Masimo.
