Clinical Dialogue: Managing Ambulatory Patients With COVID-19: Simplifying Outpatient Treatment Recommendations: Short- and Long-Term COVID-19 Sequelae

Even after the initial acute COVID-19 infection has subsided, patients are frequently left with short- or long-term sequelae post-infection. Many of these are similar to the sequelae of other severe pulmonary infections, sepsis, and/or intensive care unit admission. The organ systems affected are numerous and span the entire body. Particularly problematic are the cardiac, pulmonary, neurologic/cognitive, and thromboembolic sequelae. This educational program seeks to increase clinician awareness of these post-COVID-19 symptoms to emphasize the importance of treatment to avoid such outcomes. This is the final module of this series on the outpatient management of patients with COVID-19.

Learning Objectives

  • Manage and prevent the short and long-term complications of COVID-19 more effectively
