About the Webinar:

As a novel strain, COVID-19 has been a challenge to determine best clinical practices across the health professions, including physical therapy. This webinar will highlight current insights into its pathophysiology and medical management, including its widespread acute inflammatory microvascular changes resulting in multi-system effects, including myocarditis, arrhythmias, and pneumonitis to full-blown ARDS (including updates from Society for Critical Care Medicine and American College of Cardiology). This webinar will present clinical practice considerations such as assessing lab values and imaging results, differentiating ventilator versus non-ventilator patients, considerations for ECMO, positioning to optimize ventilation/perfusion patterns, and determining if there are any airway clearance needs (hint: most commonly not). Presenters will also discuss trends in the role of PT with these clients across the country and highlight potential best practices. Attendees will be able to submit questions and offer comments.
