Continuation of telemedicine in otolaryngology post-COVID-19: Applications by subspecialty
The purpose of this paper reviews the literature and compiles key clinically relevant applications of telemedicine for use in otolaryngology relevant to the post-COVID-19 era. The sudden healthcare closures during the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a sharp increase in the use of telemedicine. Otolaryngologists are at a unique risk of infection resulting from the examination of the head and neck. The risk of future waves of this pandemic, or the onset of another pandemic should not be overlooked.
