Meet Emergency Medicine & Critical Care Physician Dr Cameron Kyle-Sidell. He has been on the front lines in one of the epicenters of Covid 19 in the US, Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn New York City.
On this podcast we talk to Dr. Kyle-Sidell about how the virus has evolved from a clinical perspective, past and current theories on treatment and current understanding of the pathophysiology. He shares with us his experiences treating these patients, both young and old and the personal connection he has had with them. Dr Kyle-Sidell talks about how some theories are falling out of favor and proposes one of his own, diffusion hypoxemia. He suggests that rather than primarily V/Q mismatch or shunt physiology, could COVID19 be a DIFFUSION hypoxemia triggering maladaptive pulmonary vasoconstrictive responses?
An amazing critical thinker, an amazing physician and a great human trying to contribute to solving the Covid 19 problem. Dr. Kyle-Sidell can be found on twitter at @cameronks where he regularly posts important insights, questions and videos about Covid 19.
