Covid-19 effects on gastroenterology practises

Despite the fact that COVID-19 has been classified as a respiratory illness due to its characteristic symptoms of coughing, fever, and shortness of breath, many patients also experience a variety of stomach problems. This research on the effects of COVID-19 on the digestive system has prompted gastroenterologists to engage in therapy and modify their practises.

A recent Stanford Medicine study examined 116 patients who tested positive for COVID-19 at Stanford Health Care between March 4, 2020, and March 24, 2020. In addition to upper respiratory symptoms, 31, 9% of patients also experienced gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, appetite loss, and diarrhea.

Pandemic entail for gastroenterologists

What, therefore, does the pandemic entail for gastroenterologists all around the country? To begin with, offices for gastroenterology and endoscopy have taken extraordinary steps to safeguard their employees and clients. However, they have also embraced technology and postponed care that would have otherwise been given, demonstrating exactly how quickly this field of medicine transformed.

Regarding training techniques, 75% of the centres that responded stated that fellows still conducted face-to-face inpatient consultations. A sizable percentage of programmes (41%) had reduced fellow engagement in endoscopy to just a few cases, and 49% had totally stopped it.

Early in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic engulfed the globe, and the CDC advised that elective surgical procedures be temporarily postponed. Major revenue decreases have been recorded by health systems across the nation, causing financial and operational chaos in the healthcare industry. The American Hospital Association estimates that hospitals are losing $50 billion a month, with a 4-month cumulative loss of $200 billion by the end of June.
