Springfield College Professor of Physical Therapy Angela Campbell is one of the co-authors of the American Physical Therapy Association's statement entitled "Taking Precautions for Mobility and Exercise as Potential Aerosol-Generating Procedures." This week she is featured in the PTPintcast which is one of the most listened to podcasts in the profession. Listen to Podcast...
Joining Campbell were Cindy Miles (Academy of Pediatrics President), Sharon Gorman (Academy of Acute Care President), and Dee Kornetti (Home Health Section President) talking about APTA’s COVID-19 Aerosol Generating Procedure (AGP) statement.
As aerosol is one of the chief modes for COVID-19, APTA created an aerosol generating procedure guide because exercise and mobility could generate those aerosols.
For more information on this AGP statement, check out these resources created by the APTA:
