Erin O’Brien, M.D., division chair of Rhinology in Rochester, MN, joins us again to provide an evidence-based update on anosmia and its prevalence in post-COVID patients. She reviews the postulated mechanism by which anosmia occurs in this group of patients, and how this effects patients’ safety, mental health, and overall wellbeing. Dr. O’Brien also gives an overview of treatment options, such as various methods of olfactory training, and what physicians need to know when counseling their patients with post-COVID anosmia.
