Virtual Patient Care

[Note: With the ending of the COVID pandemic, we have ended our nursing chat line which helped about 200,000 patients during long months of isolation and lockdown.]

Virtual Patient Care is a free service hosted by the Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety (PPAHS). PPAHS does not provide medical advice or care. This service is run free of charge as a public informational service by PPAHS.  

Cardiovascular Disease

Atrial fibrillation (Afib) is an irregular and often rapid heart rate that occurs when the two upper chambers of your heart experience chaotic electrical signals. If you have atrial fibrillation (Afib) or other cardiovascular disease, you may be at a greater risk of getting the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Respiratory Illness

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Having COPD or other respiratory illness may increase your risk of getting COVID-19.
