Summary

Unravelling Long COVID

An authoritative medical reference on the various ways in which Long-COVID presents and an in-depth discussion of its mechanisms and potential therapeutic options.

Unravelling Long COVID aims to provide a better awareness and understanding of the persistent health problems that can arise following SARS-CoV-2 infection. Variously described as Long-COVID, Long-Haulers' Syndrome, and Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2, this newly-designated disorder is estimated to have affected somewhere between 50 to 250 million people. It is in fact considered by many as the next global public health disaster.

With such a broad and important topic, the authors of Unravelling Long COVID have focused primarily on two major problems in the current understanding of Long-COVID: 1.) the failure to distinguish patients with organ damage--here called Long-COVID Disease - and those with unexplained, persistent symptoms--what is termed Long-COVID syndrome, and 2.) the failure of current medical approaches to comprehend and treat those persistent unexplained symptoms.

Unravelling Long COVID is:
* One of the first books focused specifically on defining and understanding Long-COVID with the goal of establishing optimal management
* A unique reference to distinguish patients with organ damage caused by Long-COVID disease from those with unexplained, persistent symptoms that manifest as Long-COVID syndrome
* An in-depth exploration of neuroimmune pathways to help clarify the previously unexplained symptoms of Long-COVID

Unravelling Long COVID isan essential reference for anyone interested in Long-COVID and the impact that this condition has had on the population. It will be a useful resource for both patients suffering from the Long-Covid syndrome, their physicians and for the growing number of Long-COVID clinics that have been established across the US, the UK, and other countries.

This book is paired with a long-COVID blog, updated regularly by the authors, so the reader will be kept up to date with new clinical and research findings, in real time. To visit this site, follow this link: unravellinglongcovid.com - providing the latest information on long-COVID
