COVID-19 Return to Endurance Training

Feb 23, 2021 | webinar

In this webinar, Dr. John Evankovich, a critical care pulmonologist and triathlete joins Dr. Suzanne Atkinson to discuss COVID-19.  They cover the effects that COVID can have on the heart, lungs and brain, including the emotional complications of severe illness and ICU stays. 

COVID-19 is still a new and emerging disease with widely varying effects on different individuals.   Ongoing lung scarring and heart weakness are potential longer term complications and may require more specialized testing to diagnose. 

Finally we talk about different “return to play” protocols for those with lasting effects from COVID-19 infection.
