In this video we will discuss a well-constructed study looking specifically at methylprednisolone, a steroid, to prevent the progression of COVID-19 to critical respiratory disease. We will start by discussing the different steroids, mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid functions, similarities, and differences. We will then review the evidence to date on steroids use in COVID-19, including dexamethasone, hydrocortisone, and methylprednisolone. After that, we will dive into this study that focused on pulse dosing of methylprednisolone to treat severe, but not yet critical lung disease in COVID-19. They found quite impressive results with reductions in mortality and a quicker time to recovery! Check out the video for all the details!
