From Critical Care Explorations. In this article, the authors note that the main therapeutic changes between the first wave of the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic and the second wave of the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic were use of steroids, unrestrictive use of high-flow nasal oxygen for hypoxemic patients, and transfer of patients to other geographic areas in the case of ICU overcrowding. They found that these changes were associated with a decrease in 30-day mortality, ICU admission, and organ support.
