CME Webcast Teaches on Epidemiology and Initial Management of COVID-19

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 CME Webcast Teaches on Epidemiology and Initial Management of COVID-19. Today, we’re bringing you a special edition of OSU MedNet in order to update you about new developments in the COVID-19 pandemic. Two months ago, we recorded a MedNet program on the initial events of the outbreak and recommendations for managing patients. The world has changed dramatically in the past two months and so has the recommendations for initial management of patients with COVID-19. So today, we are updating our previous program. Everyone here at the Ohio State University is practicing social isolation and the MedNet studio crew is no exception. So, rather than use our usual location at the WOSU-TV studio, we are filming today’s webcast from our personal computers in the isolation of our own offices. So today’s program is going to look and sound a bit different than our normal webcasts. However, we know that you still need to be kept up to date with developments in medicine and especially with developments in COVID-19.
