Summary

The SARS-CoV-2 viral infection causes a wide variety of skin symptoms that may be overlooked, discounted, or misdiagnosed. As such, the opportunity for early cohorting (to prevent the spread of the infection) and treatment may be lost. The purpose of this program is to: (1) create an awareness of the silent skin manifestations related to COVID-19; (2) assist the clinician in distinguishing between skin manifestations related to COVID-19 and similar-looking etiologies, such as shingles and deep tissue pressure ulcers/injuries and peripheral arterial disease; (3) provide helpful documentation considerations for wounds that develop as a result of, or are stalled in their healing trajectory due to COVID-19 effects; and (4) discuss the importance of recognizing diminished blood oxygen levels in COVID-19 survivors and its impact on wound healing.
