VJVirtual | A neurologist’s experience during the COVID-19 pandemic

Sabrina Ravaglia • 29 Apr 2020

Sabrina Ravaglia, MD, PhD, IRCCS C. Mondino Foundation, Pavia, Italy, discusses her experience as a neurologist during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr Ravaglia describes how she had to learn new areas of medicine such as respiratory failure. There has also been the increased use of telemedicine to conduct consultations with patients as well as a change in the population of patients, for example, those with vertigo and migraine are seen less often. Those with more severe neurological disorders are seen more often, such as cerebrovascular and neurodegenerative disorders. This interview was recorded during an online conference call with The Video Journal of Neurology (VJNeurology).
