Using tele-ICU capabilities, Mayo Clinic physicians in critical care medicine are volunteering to support staff at New York-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, which has been inundated with COVID-19 cases. At this unprecedented time, these two organizations are collaborating and innovating to help patients.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Sean Caples, a Mayo Clinic pulmonologist and critical care physician, describes the real-time connectivity for Mayo physicians to provide assistance from anywhere directly to the New York-Presbyterian Lawrence ICU. At the same time, Mayo doctors are drawing on the experience gained by New York-Presbyterian Lawrence providers in caring for patients with COVID-19 and its complications.

To practice safe social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, this interview was conducted using video conferencing. The sound and video quality are representative of the technology used.

Connect with others talking about the pandemic and supporting one another in the COVID-19 support group and in the Intensive Care (ICU) support group.
