Dr. Sean Conley & Team Update: Trump could return to WH ‘as early as tomorrow’ 10/4/2020

October 4, 2020


On 10/4/2020, Dr. Sean Conley said Trump has experienced two episodes of transient drops in oxygen levels. The first significant episode occurred late Friday morning when Trump had “a high fever and his oxygen saturation was transiently dipping below 94%.” Conley admitted Sunday that he had omitted those alarming drops in the President’s oxygen levels during Saturday’s news conference because he wanted to “reflect the upbeat attitude” that the team and the President had about his condition and didn’t want “to give any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction.”

Dr. Sean Dooley, a pulmonologist at Walter Reed, said the president has remained without a fever since Friday morning and his cardiac, kidney and liver functions are all still normal. He said Trump has not shown signs of shortness of breath and was walking around his medical unit without limitation or disability.

Dr. Brian Garibaldi, with Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, said Trump has completed his second dose of Remdesivir and has exhibited no side effects as far as his team can tell. His team will therefore continue plans to keep him on the medication over a five-day period. In response to transient low oxygen levels, the president also has begun dexamethasone therapy and was given his first dose Saturday. “Our plan for today is to have him to eat and drink, be up out of bed as much as possible to be mobile,” Girabaldi said. “And if he continues to look and feel as well as he does today our hope is that we can plan for discharge as early as tomorrow to the White House where he can continue his treatment course.”
