Acute Kidney Injury;
Update From the Front Lines:
Protesters, Tear Gas, and COVID-19

Dr. Jonathan Barasch, a nephrology expert at Columbia University, will discuss the different types of Acute Kidney Injury and its biomarkers as well as the mechanisms associated with COVID-19.

Although recent protests have raised concerns regarding risks of viral transmission during crowd gatherings, additional hazards have been reported including trauma and chemical exposures. In keeping with our goals to bring you timely information surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we will discuss common chemicals used by law enforcement to disperse crowds and hear about past clinical experience from protests in Thailand and Lebanon.
