Emergency Care During COVID-19: Holiday Uptick in Strokes and Heart Attacks

The holiday season is a peak time of year for strokes and heart attacks -- and not just for older people. What’s behind this potentially deadly phenomenon and how can we reduce our risk?

Host, Jonathan Fialkow, MD, chief population health office at Baptist Health looks into this “holiday phenomenon” with guest experts Felipe De Los Rios, MD, medical director of the stroke program at Miami Neuroscience Institute, and Leo Huynh, DO, chief of emergency medicine at Baptist Hospital.

This podcast contains excerpts from an episode of Baptist Health’s Resource Live program, which also focused on the importance of never delaying care for symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. Emergency rooms are open and safe, with strict protocols in place to protect patients, staff, and visitors from exposure to the novel coronavirus.
