1/ I hope no one believes that I am an expert on #SARSCoV2 or believes that “I” think I am an expert on #COVID19

In an effort to contribute to the greater good of this #pandemic pandemic, I have been trying to utilize my clinical research experience and help remotely
2/ ...in lieu of actively seeing patients on the front line.

My role has been asking questions, synthesizing ideas, and hoping to catalyze discussion amongst colleagues. Am I actually helping anyone? Who knows? lol

So again, more thinking, more questions… (#neuro #ENT focus)
3/ I was thinking about those 2 neurological cases:

24yo M, Meningitis/Encephalitis -NP swab, +CSF (JAPAN)
sciencedirect.com/science/articl…

58yo F, Acute Hemorrhagic Necrotizing Encephalopathy +NP swab, CSF unable to be tested for SARSCOV2 (USA/MI)

Bizarre.

1/ #Frontline clinicians across the world are observing a #hypercoagulable state in patients with #COVID19. Could the severe and varied effects of the disease on multiple organ systems possibly be due to thrombus/micro-thrombus and associated sequela? @ASH_hematology @EricTopol
2/ Could a mechanism of #microvascular injury during the infection be through inappropriate effects of excess free angiotensin-II protein floating around because the ACE-2 that would normally be soaking it up is occupied by #SARSCOV2 particles? @EricTopol @ASH_hematology
3/ We know that ACE2 activation promotes antithrombotic activity and ACE2 deactivation would promote thrombus. #medtwitter #NurseTwitter #COVIDー19
