The assessment of patients who are unwell with COVID-19 or other causes presents a significant challenge for GPs and clinicians working in primary care. The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and the AHSN Network held a joint webinar looking at the role of oximetry and other physiology in that assessment on Wednesday 29 April 2020.

This webinar was led by:

  • Dr Jonathan Leach, RCGP Honorary Secretary and COVID Lead
  • Dr Alison Tavaré, Primary Care Clinical Lead at West of England AHSN
  • Dr Simon Stockley, RCGP Lead for Acute Deterioration and Sepsis.

You can watch a recording of the webinar here and download the presentation.

The webinar recording covers:

  • Clinical features of COVID-19
