Host: Danielle Stiepan 

Once a vaccine to prevent COVID-19 is approved, there will be logistics to consider. For example, who will receive the vaccine first, and how can the supply chain safely deliver the vaccine to 330 million Americans and potentially more than 7 billion people worldwide? In addition, multiple vaccines may be brought to market within weeks to months of each other, confusing consumers. 

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group, explains the challenges of rolling out a COVID-19 vaccine.

Guest:  Stephen L. Kopecky, M.D. 

With underlying cardiovascular disease as the most lethal comorbidity to have in association with COVID-19, what have we learned about how SARS-CoV-2 affects the heart and what correlation is seen between patients with cardiometabolic disorders and preventative health measures? Dr. Stephen Kopecky shares lessons learned for all cardiologists, all caregivers, and all patients. 

“The cardiovascular risk profile that we use from the American College of Cardiology, from the American Heart Association, looks at hypertension, looks at smoking, looks at diabetes, and looks at lipids. That risk profile predicts cardiovascular complications. So it not only predicts disease but it predicts the complications of COVID infection.”

Novel viruses causing outbreaks tend to do one of three things: disappear completely, become endemic in certain areas, or roll through populations with ongoing transmission until herd immunity is achieved or an effective vaccine is developed. Dr. Pritish Tosh states, “If natural infection doesn’t cause long-lasting protective immunity or the vaccines don’t do the same, this thing could be with us for a long time.” Take a walk through the past 100 years of pandemics as Dr. Tosh draws comparisons and lessons learned.

“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” - Mike Tyson 

Thin margins and economies of scale help lower costs but can create significant vulnerabilities. Often calculations of lives lost in the event of a shortage or costs to stockpile may not be factored in when sourcing supplies. Healthcare supply chain practices over decades have lead to significant weak points in our supply chains for some vital materials and we often have no view of this until it’s too late.

“At a time when most of the world in one way or another is suffering, it seems relevant to talk about ways to relieve some of that suffering and to help.” Studies have shown that patients value empathy over sympathy, and compassion over empathy. While measures to protect ourselves and understand the spread of COVID-19 and the clinical presentation of the disease are underway, the inconsistency of information across sources brings greater uncertainty for our patients and at times ourselves. 

Dr. Rosenman discusses what compassion is and the importance of compassion as a tool to help us and our patients, feel better mentally and physically. He recommends practicing self-compassion and will step through the practices of self-kindness, common humanity, and mindfulness.

We’re learning more about anosmia, cardiac injury, and “COVID-toes.” What’s known about COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 continues to evolve.

Patients under 21 who present with fever, lab evidence of inflammation, multisystem involvement, and recent or current SARS-CoV-2 infection fall under the case definition for multisystem inflammatory syndrome. They commonly present with persistent fever and gastrointestinal symptoms and concerningly, shock. Why are we seeing disproportionate rates in children of racial and ethnic minorities? Dr. Nipunie Rajapaske concisely covers what’s known about this syndrome and the data supporting its emergence as a post-infection complication.
