COVID-19 Screening, Diagnosis and Management
Journal of emergency and trauma care is pleased to announce Special issue “COVID-19 Screening, Diagnosis and Management”
Given the nonspecific presentation and current epidemiology (community spread, more common than all other respiratory illnesses), all patients who present with a respiratory illness should presume to have COVID-19 until proven otherwise.
At present there is not enough epidemiological data to determine the accuracy/predictive value of the PCR viral swab for COVID-19, however the specificity is thought to be high while the sensitivity is likely <90%. While testing can certainly miss COVID-19 as a result of the relatively poor sensitivity of the PCR viral swab, most of these patients will have a clinical picture that is consistent with COVID-19 and will be presumed to have the diagnosis even with a negative swab result.
With the same purpose our Journal “Journal of emergency and trauma care” is announcing Special issue Call for paper on “COVID-19 Screening, Diagnosis and Management”. We welcome both solicited and unsolicited submissions that will contribute to this special issue.
