Psychologic Distress and Quality of Life After ICU Treatment for Coronavirus Disease 2019: A Multicenter, Observational Cohort Study
From Critical Care Explorations. In this study, the authors found that psychologic distress was common in coronavirus disease 2019 ICU survivors and remained similar until 6 months after hospital discharge.
Adherence to Lung Protective Ventilation in Patients With Coronavirus Disease 2019
From Critical Care Explorations. In this Brief Report, the authors sought to test the hypothesis that patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome due to coronavirus disease 2019, in whom acute respiratory distress syndrome is easily recognized, would be more likely to receive low tidal volume ventilation than concurrently admitted acute respiratory distress syndrome patients without coronavirus disease 2019.
Safety and Feasibility of an Interdisciplinary Treatment Approach to Optimize Recovery From Critical Coronavirus Disease 2019
From Critical Care Explorations. In this study, the authors examined the safety and feasibility of a multimodal in-person or telehealth treatment program, administered in acute recovery phase for patients surviving critical coronavirus disease 2019. They found that multimodal treatment program combining care from an interdisciplinary team in an ICU Recovery Clinic with physical rehabilitation is safe and feasible in patients surviving the ICU for coronavirus disease 2019 acute respiratory failure.
Machine Learning Prediction of Death in Critically Ill Patients With Coronavirus Disease 2019
From Critical Care Explorations. In this study, the authors aimed compare machine learning algorithms and develop a simple tool for predicting 28-day mortality in ICU patients with coronavirus disease 2019.
