Preliminary reports indicate some COVID-19 patients may develop a so-called “post-acute COVID-19 syndrome,” in which they experience persistent symptoms after recovering from their initial illness. The syndrome appears to affect those with mild as well as moderate-to-severe disease.
In this episode, we're joined by American Thoracic Society member, Dr. Vinay Gupta and Society of Critical Care Medicine member, Dr. Meghan Lane-Fall to discuss what's currently known about the syndrome, also known as Long COVID, and the challenges it presents to both patients and clinicians.

This episode is in partnership with the American Thoracic Society and the Society of Critical Care Medicine.
