Podcast: Pilots & Long COVID

May 9, 2022

Even as the world moves toward a post-pandemic reality, COVID-19 continues to present new challenges, including “Long COVID,” a condition in which patients continue to experience symptoms long after their initial infection is resolved. “It seems like every day we’re learning more and more about this still-new condition, and we are seeing more symptoms that could be potentially related to long COVID,” notes Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Greg Vanichkachorn. Pilots should be aware of these symptoms and consult with medical professionals as needed.

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
  • Dr. Clayton Cowl, pulmonologist and senior AME, Mayo Clinic
  • Dr. Quay Snyder, president, Aviation Medicine Advisory Service (AMAS)
  • Dr. Greg Vanichkachorn, senior AME and medical director, Mayo Clinic COVID Activity Rehabilitation Program
