Coronavirus Pandemic Update 105: FDA Authorized Treatments; COVID 19 Vaccine Update

A review of current COVID-19 treatments authorized by the FDA plus coronavirus testing, lab values, and vaccine updates by Dr. Seheult of https://www.medcram.com
Remdesivir, dexamethasone, and convalescent plasma each have emergency use authorization (EUA) from the FDA, and Dr. Seheult discusses his clinical experience with these medications as well as some of the data that supports their use.

A key question for future research: should dexamethasone be used for more than 10 days in patients with severe COVID 19 infections?

Other topics covered: Lab values of acute-phase reactants/proteins (CRP, Ferritin, LDH, D-dimer), Paper coronavirus tests, and an update on the novel oxford AstraZeneca adenovirus vaccine. (This video was recorded September 1, 2020).
