An older daughter is coming home to be with our transplant recipient. What precautions should she take before interacting with sister? And what day-to-day precautions, if any, do we need to make? Will the sisters be able to cuddle again watching Netflix?

have any/all the panelists been on a. airplane during COVID-19?
Kelly Wagner

2 time double lung transplant recipient waiting on kidney. need to get to Pittsburgh from ma. on dialysis and driving 10 hours is more taxing then flying. thoughts?

My plan currently is to drive where we need to go, but it does create time issues that are hard to deal with.
Robert Goodman
02:08:53
Dr. Montgomery’s point is a very good one. An effort that includes all of the various transplant programs coming together might be a way to pressure the vaccine world/FDA to test immunosuppressed patients earlier than later.
Pat Mikos
02:09:06
Is it safe to travel by car? Are hotels and rest stops cleaned enough for immune suppressed people
Hamid Mahdavy
02:09:20
We may never have an effective vaccine. Look at AIDS. If we have a high success rate cure, then the risk goes away significantly
Lindsay Briggs
02:09:45
if we drive have to worry about hotel stays and such or just suck it up and fly
Ken Iovino

Is NKF doing that type of advocacy to include tx its in trials?

majority of Red Roof properties have outside corridors with individual HVAC units...preferred for traveling!

I agree with you Oscar. I also feel we need good treatment for the virus as well

Oscar Munoz - when will YOU personally feel ok flying again?

Despite HEPA filters, is the virus easily spreadable through the closed circulating air? I’m less concerned about direct contact but most concerned about indirect via closed cabin and circulated air - despite filters. Can the doctors address this?

Yes. I'm exercising nearly every day that I feel up to it. I know I will benefit if I were to contract Covid.

Janie Carlisle

I think the type of immunosuppressants you are on makes a difference as well as your own personal experiences with rejections and the cause of your need for a transplant. Each person has the choice to make. I was at the ER a couple weeks ago and as of yesterday, I have started having symptoms that I'm concerned about
Jeffrey Pike
02:13:42
As long as it is not a live vaccine, risk for infection is negligible. May be other risks, but if vaccine is simply protein particles, no reason to fear risk
Ken Iovino
02:14:01
oh wow Sharon. that’s awesome! god bless you both
Ava Kaufman

So, train travel is different from airline travel - frequent stops that let in fresh air, windows that one can open if one is in a roomette. What do (any of) you think about the risks of train travel?
Roxanne watson
02:14:31
we cant even get people to wear masks thats sad
Sam Dey ( ❤Heart♻️recipient,2015 )
02:14:39
being a guinea pig for a vaccine...is risky. period. irrespective of being immunosuppressed or not
Monica Fox
02:14:42
Thank you Dr. Montgomery. That's a great point.
Ava Kaufman
02:15:04
Right on Roxanne
Sam Dey ( ❤Heart♻️recipient,2015 )
02:15:09
testing before boarding flights??
Monica Fox
02:15:13
We all do risk benefit analysis everyday personally
Christine Jacobsen

Train travel…hmmmm
Roxanne watson
02:15:34
tell Oscar I'll take test flights on United SEND TICKETS LOL
Beth Beathard
02:15:35
I live in Texas and so many people don't follow the rules. Makes it even more difficult to feel safe going out.

Ron Potts

Lasting immunity is a very big question. If only short period lasts after infection or vaccination, what might change in your lives?
Christine Jacobsen
02:16:01
The new look is wear your mask on your chin!
Sam Dey ( ❤Heart♻️recipient,2015 )
02:16:13
peak season may be approaching...so are the number of positive cases in many areas
Ansara Piebenga
02:16:19
Are the airlines creating industry-wide protocol for COVID19 prevention? Are all requiring masks, standardized cleaning, etc? If not, what can be done to push for standardization?
Merle Zuel
02:16:24
I think the varying comfort displayed by our panel mirrors our own community. We are all different and will all chose for ourselves what risks we take and live with the consequences.

Risk tolerance is a personnel thing. Everyone is different
Roxanne watson
02:18:00
I'd be more worried about hotels then plane
Valen Keefer
02:18:07
I emailed in this question in ahead of time, but I'd appreciate knowing their thoughts on this. As a dual transplant recipient, what are their thoughts on me having family travel to visit us. I have family on the east coast that would like to visit us on the west coast. Is this safe? Ok for them to fly? Should they drive?
Sam Dey ( ❤Heart♻️recipient,2015 )
02:19:02
I just had Remotrac blood draw + allomap on Friday, most of the results were available within a few hours of the draw!! thank you, CAREDX!!
Merle Zuel
02:19:03
The best we can all do is minimize the risk, we cannot eliminate it.
William Clark
02:19:27
“Risk tolerance” is personal, but it’s a very different story if my choices increase the possibility of spreading disease to others. “Personal choice” may not mean just “personal consequences.”
Jeffrey Pike
02:19:40
Well said William
Kim Cable
02:19:51
Michael, was your wife wearing PPE when she was infected? I'm trying to get a sense of how vulnerable we are with masks and face shields on. Thank you.
Sam Dey ( ❤Heart♻️recipient,2015 )
02:19:56
are organs from deceased donors being flown from area to area?
Monica Fox
02:20:36
As a kidney recipient, I am fortunate to work for NKF of Illinois and have colleagues and a CEO who help me reduce risks.
Darrin Rolle
02:20:37
Yes, my husband just got a liver flown to Arizona from New Orleans on June 14th
Alan MacPhee
02:20:37
Sam: does that rapid availability of results come from CareDX or the lab? the lab near me does not trust patients with such info, it must first be reviewed by a doc. 😡
Hugh McCracken
02:20:45
We need a group of mice with compromised immune systems.
Mollie Murphy
02:21:00
Car over bus/train/plane -- even if hotel is involved?
Mark Calderone
02:21:24
Are we allowed to move to available seats on planes to help social distancing?
genie kilpatrick
02:21:54
How can transplant patients advocate for the vaccine testing for the immune suppressed - who would the contact be ?
Scott Wilfong
02:22:11
My wife and I are extremely careful when needing to go out, my biggest concern is when I need to go in for a biopsy.
Patrick Toland

Jeffrey Pike
02:22:17
Those of us who had living donors need to think about the risk their donor experienced in their donation when deciding if we should help test vaccines in transplant patients
Sam Dey ( ❤Heart♻️recipient,2015 )
02:22:17
@Alan, I believe it's the coordination between the lab + my Txteam + Caredx. I may be lucky. check with your team.
Leah Gleason
02:22:30
For Michael: looking back, is there anything you could/would have done differently had you known you would contract the virus?
ahmar reza
02:23:09
What sources of critical information do you regularly consume around covid and your condition? Ex/ Newsletters or govt databases
