Mar 28, 2020

Today, our guest is Kirti Patel, the National Clinical Specialist for Perfusion at SpecialtyCare. In this episode, we discuss how the COVID-19 outbreak is impacting the Houston area, where Kirti is located. We also discuss in detail, what ECMO is, why a patient might need to be placed on ECMO, and how it is the last line of defense in someone's fight against COVID-19. We also discuss some uplifting things that are happening in the Houston community to help these front line employees at the hospitals feel supported as they fight this COVID-19 outbreak.
