Trauma surgeon aids New York City COVID-19 patients
April 27, 2020
IN THE NEWS: When New York City's hospitals were overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients this spring, UCI Health trauma surgeon Dr. Sebastian Schubl answered his mentor's call for help.
Schubl treated many patients during his week of 12-hour shifts in the intensive care unit at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
It was a profound experience fighting a contagion that can cause a person's entire body to shut down.
The sheer volume of sick people meant there was little time to celebrate when one patient improved enough to be transferred to a regular hospital room, he said.
