"You need to know once again here is A. B. C. news correspondent Amy Robach time now to take a good look at a lot of your medical questions that have been pouring in for our Dr Jen Ashton so Dr Jan joining us now I will get straight to the first question when people have been diagnosed with COPD nineteen pass away can their organs still be harvested for transplantation well this is a really important issue because we know how important organ transplantation is in this country so many people on a list waiting for an organ when you talk about solid organ donation remember that is done before the patient is technically dead there they might be brain dead obviously but and in right now in the world of transplantation it is really unknown what the risk of transplantation with a solid organ is with respect to covert nineteen obviously if someone has tested positive many transplant surgeons will consider that you know a negative side this is something that is definitely evolving and we are seeing major delays for people waiting for transplantation it's so many so many parts of the medical world affected by the absolutely all right next question in testing for Kobe nineteen what is the difference between specificity and sensitivity and why does age matter this must be a question from an epidemiologist because this is literally at the core of testing any test has a sensitivity and a specificity sensitivity you can remember with initials P. ID it's positive in disease so that's really looking for the true positives specificity is negative in health so that's looking for the true negatives when you talk about antibody testing depending on what these numbers are you may get a result that is fifty fifty likelihood of being false that is why we have to proceed with caution until we know the accuracy the specificity and sensitivity of any tests we do a Medicare right I wouldn't even know to ask that question so definitely had to come from yeah all right question three are bad sweats at night a possible sign of cobiz nineteenth so everyone's looking for are there more signs or symptoms sign in medicine is something you can see a symptom is something you feel right now there's no direct association or correlation between sweating being a symptom of covert nineteen nor is there any evidence that the virus is transmitted in perspiration more sweat however something related to sweating chills or shaking chills those are new symptoms just added to the CDC list for symptoms of carbon nineteen okay next question are pediatricians starting to do vaccines at vehicles I am concerned about taking my young child into the office that's very understandable it is understandable and pediatricians are concerned that patients out of fear their parents really will not be bringing those children for their routine immunizations or their well child check up so I think you're going to start to see a lot of innovation a lot of creativity and finding solutions for this where maybe if the weather permits and the staffing resources are there any various pediatricians offices or clinics they can do those car side immunizations but again we are in the beginning of this so how this all involves will be seen it'll be interesting right all right Dr Jen Ashton thank you so much and you can submit your questions to Dr Jen on her Instagram at Dr J.
