Thanks! Share it with your friends!


– We’re here today to
talk about coronavirus,or in this particular case, COVID-19. We’re gonna answer some
frequently asked questionsthat we’ve been getting from our patients. The CDC came out with guidelines
for people at higher riskof getting very sick from the COVID-19. Should we consider people
with rheumatic diseasesto be at high risk?- So, there are several reasonswhy we might consider patients
with rheumatic diseaseto be at higher risk. Probably the most common reason
is that many of our patientstake immune suppressing medications. These medications could be
in the form of biologic,injectable, or infusion medications,but also oral medications
that people take,that suppress their immune system,such as methotrexate,
CellCept, or prednisone,all of these medicines workby suppressing the immune system,so that does place a patient
at higher risk potentiallyfrom having complications
of COVID-19 infection. Another reason that people
could be at higher riskis they could have
complications of their diseasethat might involve their heart or lung,that would also place them at higher risk. So given those concerns,what precautions should
our patients be taking?- One thing is to stock up on supplies. This would prevent you from
having to go out frequentlyinto the public, to get supplies. So if you could stock up on your supplies,and even your medications,to have about a one month extra supplyof medications if possible. You’re going to take your
everyday precautions,which includes good hand hygiene,of course, if you cough or sneeze,to cough into your elbow,to try to avoid touching your face,and some of these other
regular standard precautions. So you don’t wanna go someplace
where there are going to belarge crowds, you really
wanna limit close contactwith other people, you wanna
be cautious with your travel. Please avoid traveling on a cruise,and if you have any
nonessential air travel,you may wanna consider
canceling that as well. Should I stop my immunosuppressants,to help decrease my risk?- I think at this point,in an asymptomatic patient,we do not want patients as a general rulestopping their immune
suppressing medications. There are several reasons
for that, the first reason isis that stopping the
medications could precipitatea flare up of disease, and
for some of our patientsthese flare ups could be serious. And in some cases, may actually requiregoing on more immune suppressing medicinesthan you were to begin with if there to bea significant flare of the disease. We also know that patients who
have flare of their diseasemight be actually also at
higher risk for infectionor infection complications
if their disease is active. So for those reasons, we
really don’t recommendthat asymptomatic patients stoptheir immune suppressing medications. Symptomatic patients
are a different story,and we would like patientswho develop respiratory
infection symptoms,particularly if there’s
been a concern for exposure,to in conjunction with their provider,likely stop their immune
suppressing medications. Another reason patients should not stoptheir immune suppressing medicines,if they don’t have any symptoms
of respiratory infection,would be that we don’t really
know the timing at this pointin terms of how long that
period of time might be,since we don’t know how
this virus is gonna behave. And if patients are off their medicationsfor a period of time,
that increases the riskthat they might have a flare,and may reduce the efficacy
of their medicationsonce they go back on them. – What should I
do if I develop symptomsof a respiratory illness,and I suspect I may have
been exposed to COVID-19?- So, if a patient develops
respiratory symptomsthat are severe, meaning
a patient has severeshortness of breath, or chest painthat requires emergent evaluation,we still suggest that patients call 911,and get those symptoms
immediately addressed. It is probably helpful that
you would tell the paramedicsif there has been an exposure,or a concern of exposure to COVID-19,and tell the same thing to a 911 operator. If you have mild symptoms,
we ask that you callyour physician, and
discuss those symptoms,and whether you would stopyour immune suppressing medications,if you can stay at home, what
you would need to do at hometo take care of yourself,
and what symptomsyou should watch out for to seekadditional medical attention.
