“People have predicted for a long time that there was going to be more of a boom in egg freezing and utilization of genetic testing. This is probably the beginning of a scale up,” says Dr. Eve Feinberg, a reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist at Northwestern Medicine. “The transition to a work-from-home environment has opened up more time and space for people to focus on some of their life goals and priorities.”

They said transplants should be performed at least four weeks after a diagnosis of irreversible lung damage. In the United States alone, more than 50 double lung transplants have been performed on COVID-19 survivors, and all the patients are alive, said Dr. Ankit Bharat of Northwestern Medicine in Chicago, who has performed a dozen of them. A study published in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine that examined 12 of the first double-lung transplants performed in COVID-19 patients in the United States, Italy, Austria and India showed that all but two survived and are doing well, said co-author Bharat.

Walking at a slow pace that does not induce ischemic leg symptoms is no more effective than no exercise at all, the study found.

While the trial did not identify the biological changes that lead to walking improvement, lead investigator Dr. Mary McDermott, professor of medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, said in the statement that prior research shows intensive exercise stimulates certain biologic pathways that promote improved mitochondrial activity.

“These are not necessarily bad kids, but they have many strikes against them,” said study lead author Linda Teplin. “Physical abuse, sexual abuse and neglect are common.

Mia Rusev, a case therapist at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital and a licensed clinical social worker, says the reopening is going to be a time of transition and adjustment. “People got accustomed to smaller crowds, less noise and more intimate settings, and they’ll have to be patient with themselves with reentry. So if you’re going into a crowded place, it might be overwhelming,” she said.
