SEJUNG HONG

CINDY SCARBOROUGH, RN

Concise, understandable terminology. Well referenced. Logical, organized content with appropriate emphasis on pertinence to current and potentially future impacts. Analysis of situation weighs variables involved in collecting accurate data sets and considers weight of data/changes based on time points (early recognition of outbreak-pandemic vs later). Provides analysis of updated information; identifies importance of veracity of data.

SHARON BELL, NP

Thanks for the info and update. I will be on the look out for patients that present with these symptoms and have a history or contact with someone who has traveled to or near wunon china. Im curious why some who get influenza or pneumonia develop ARDs. It is very difficult to treat and is usually the cause of death. My question is how to we reduce the incidence of ARDs with this illness, or can we? I had a colleague die 2 months ago from ARDs after contracting a viral illness.

JOHN LOCK, MD

VERY HELPFUL, PLEASE KEEP US POSTED. WOULD YOU PLEASE TOUCH ON THE TOPIC TESTING. similar reviews and updates on pressing topics like this in the future would be greatly appreciated. Thank you much. Thanks for your continued surveillance. Amen Is there any possibility of an ACE 2 inhibitor or peptide being used in a nebulizer to block virus absorption in the distal airways?

GESA RIEDEL, MD

Simple, lots of examples to go with the medical information which I appreciated (I was an EMT, so not enough medical education). I liked the visuals, the drawings, the graphs. I sure wish this was out on Facebook because people are freaking out and we seriously need MedCram on it to sooth the panic and stop the hysteria. You're doing a great service here. Thank you. I give the instructor an A+

SHARON ROSE, RN

This was great information to hear. Seems like most of this information gets lost in the reporting of the virus, so it was good to have a reference point to find out this information.
