Host: Amit K. Ghosh, M.D., M.B.A. (@AmitGhosh006

“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.

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.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most common mode of transmission for COVID-19 is through close contact from person to person. While it is possible that someone can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes, this isn’t thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group, discusses virus transmission and steps to take to keep yourself safe.
