Dr. Laura Esserman answers the door of her bright yellow Victorian home in San Francisco’s Ashbury neighborhood with a phone at her ear. She’s wrapping up one of several meetings that day with her research team at University of California, San Francisco, where she heads the Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center. She motions me in and reseats herself at a makeshift home office desk in her living room, sandwiched between a grand piano and set of enormous windows overlooking her front yard’s flower garden. It’s her remote base of operations when she’s not seeing patients or operating at the hospita...
This study aimed to understand patients ’ experience with telehealth and whether telehealth should be a continued care option after the pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused severe disruptions in surgical care delivery. We studied the impact of the pandemic on an already existing same day discharge sleeve gastrectomy workflow.
According to the available scientific evidence It is unknown whether replacing clinic follow-up visits with telephone follow-up for low-risk elective and non-elective surgeries is safe. Nonetheless; using telemedicine has become one of the most needed and used methods during this pandemic to avoid COVID-19 disease spreading among surgical teams and patients.
Worldwide, healthcare systems were challenged during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tertiary hospitals, which perform the majority of organ transplants in Mexico, shifted gears to provide treatment for critically ill COVID-19 patients.
Inconsistencies regarding the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) have raised concerns for the safety of surgical staff during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. This rapid review synthesises the literature that includes input from clinical experts to provide evidence-based guidance for surgical services.
Telehealth has become mainstream during the COVID-19 pandemic, but its role in managing older patients is not well defined. This systematic review aims to assess the postoperative benefits of perioperative telehealth interventions in older adults.
Since the first reported COVID-19 in December 2019, 90 million cases have been confirmed with two million mortality globally. In the United States, 22 million cases with 370,000 deaths were reported as of January 1st, 2021. The pandemic posed as a critical challenge to public health and the medical community. Navigating through an unprecedented pandemic is difficult as very little is known regarding COVID-19 and its physiological impact on disease processes. However, we suspect patients have delayed presentation when feeling ill possibly due to fear of contracting COVID-19 and therefore have clinically more severe disease at presentation.
COVID-19 pandemic caused a shift from in-person medical care to telemedicine. We evaluated trends and efficiency of telemedicine usage within surgical specialties in a regional integrated health care delivery system before and after Northern California SIP orders (March 16, 2020).
The COVID-19 pandemic prompted to temporarily cease all elective surgery. Elective surgery represents a disproportionate share of the revenue for hospitals, placing them under potential financial stress. The study sought to determine the reduction in surgical volume and the economic impact across service lines and geographical region.
