In late 2020, Medscape sent a documentary filmmaker to the intensive care unit of Hartford Hospital to get a close-up view of the fight against COVID-19. He shadowed Dr Megan Panico, a critical care physician, as she cared for Brian, a COVID-19 patient. We are given an intimate look at their difficult discussions about treatment, declining status, and potential end of life. Watch as Brian's story unfolds.
