The inaugural session began with Dr. Aziz Khan, noted Heart Surgeon and Senior Cardiologist from Crescent Hospital, Nagpur who guided the students and faculty members on problems associated with heart & circulatory system after Covid 19. A person can be infected when aerosols or droplets containing the virus inhaled or come directly into contact. Heart attacks are more common with Covid 19. This heart attack can be caused by increased stress on the heart, low blood oxygen level and anemia, explained Dr. Aziz Khan.

Preventive measures include physical or social distancing, quarantining, ventilation of indoor spaces, covering cough and sneeze, hand washing and keeping unwashed hands away from the face, he said.

Dr. Owais Hasan, Medical Officer from Swastik Critical Care, Nagpur, highlighted on Mucormycosis. He raised awareness about vital issues and concerns related to Mucormycosis. Steroids lead to a drop in immunity which indeed leads to triggering these cases of Mucormycosis. Causes include uncleaned bedsheets, uncleaned oxygen masks, and unhygenic conditions lead to Mucormycosis. Those covid recovered patients with symptoms of one sided facial swelling, headache, nasal congestion, fever, dental problems should see the doctor.
