Coronavirus Pandemic Update 61: Blood Clots & Strokes in COVID-19; ACE-2 Receptor; Oxidative Stress

COVID-19 Update 61 with critical care specialist Roger Seheult, MD of https://www.MedCram.com
Thrombosis (blood clots), strokes, and myocardial infarctions are mysterious complications for some patients with COVID-19. Dr. Seheult discusses a recent case study involving a 72-year-old with elevated d-dimer and plasma Von Willebrand factor, and goes on to illustrate a hypothesis for how downregulation of ACE-2 may result in oxidative stress. This process may put patients with underlying elevated levels of oxidative stress (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, etc.) at the greatest risk for severe COVID-19 infection.
