Texas Public Radio: Is COVID-19 A Vascular Disease?
UC cardiologist discusses COVID-19 impact on the vascular system
At first, COVID-19 appeared to be primarily a respiratory disease. But patients have reported a much wider range of symptoms than most viral diseases, leading some researchers to wonder if COVID-19 might, in some cases, also be a vascular disease.
Journalists for Texas Public Radio's news podcast Petrie Dish discuss the science of the pandemic. The segment includes an interview with Richard Becker, MD, director of the University of Cincinnati Heart, Lung and Vascular Institute and UC Health physician, along with listening to coronavirus survivors experiencing the vascular side effects of the disease.
Listen to the entire June 27 segment - Becker segment begins 10:57 and continues through 14:11 and another reference at 20-minute mark
