This is a special episode we're posting across the InsideTheBoards network to educate med students on the clinical issues surrounding COVID-19 like how ventilators work, how patients are assessed and some potential questions students may have about the coronavirus pandemic.
Dr. Ted O’Connell, ITB’s chief content officer, and author of Crush Step 1 and USMLE Step 2 Secrets interviews Dr. Raj Dasgupta.
“Dr. Raj” is a Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine physician and assistant program director for the University of Southern California’s Internal Medicine residency program. Dr. Raj is actively involved in media and has appeared on The Doctors, Bill Nye Saves the World and many others. He is one of the hosts for TNT’s Chasing the Cure and author of author of Morning Report: Beyond the Pearls, which you can learn more about at beyondthepearls.net.
