Right now, we at Getinge are doing our utmost to support the courageous clinicians around the world, in their fight against the global pandemic, COVID-19.

COVID-19 caused a significant epidemic in the greater New York area in March and April 2020. The epidemic began to wane by early May 2020. During the peak, New York City hospitals were overwhelmed by the number of severely ill patients with COVID-19. Dr. Kaufman is a critical care doctor who personally provided medical attention to nearly 150 patients with COVID-19 during the epidemic. The large volume of very sick people he saw in a brief period, open a window to some unique aspects of their care. Dr. Kaufman will discuss the treatment of severe respiratory failure and viral sepsis, including considerations such as making the decision to intubate and provide mechanical ventilation, the difficulties he encountered taking care of a very large number of patients with severe respiratory failure simultaneously, hemodynamic considerations in COVID-19, and decisions about therapies such as anti-inflammatories, antivirals, and anticoagulation.

Time: 08:00am Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT +04:00) - 14:00pm Central European Summer Time (Berlin, GMT + 02:00) - 13:00pm British Summer Time (London, GMT +01:00)
