Summary

In today's episode, I speak with Dr. Andrew Courtwright, who is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine in the Department of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. We speak about the clinical findings in patients with severe manifestations of Covid-19 and the ethics of resource allocation in pandemics. And I learn the mechanics of prone position ventilation.
