Length of Episode
In patients with sickle cell concurrent pulmonary issues such as asthma, allergies, sleep apnea and acute chest syndrome are common. Alvin Singh, MD, is helping save these sickle cell patients an extra trip to the hospital through the multidisciplinary sickle cell pulmonary clinic. Dr. Singh ensures that patients are well oxygenated, ventilated and that pulmonary issues don’t affect their sickle cell disease.
Listen in as Alvin Singh, MD explains that although acute chest syndrome is the second most common complication of sickle cell disease, it can be difficult to determine the source of the problem, especially in young patients with a predilection for asthma.
