Care approaches for COVID-19 long-haulers – Part 1

“Long-haulers” are those who contracted COVID-19 and cannot shake off the effects weeks or months later. These patients can experience continual impaired lung function, mental incapacity, dizziness, tiredness and other maladies lingering on from the disease. This podcast features excerpts from a recent webcast that discussed one health care organization’s clinic outreach to COVID long-haulers as well as Sg2 research into the various conditions represented.
