From Critical Care Explorations. In this observational study, the authors concluded that extracorporeal membrane oxygenation retrieval can rescue young, previously healthy patients with severe coronavirus disease 2019 in whom all the conventional respiratory measures have failed and found that thrombotic and hemorrhagic complications are frequent in this cohort.
From Critical Care Explorations. In this study, the authors found that angiotensin-II treatment for coronavirus disease 2019–induced distributive shock was associated with rapid improvement in multiple physiologic indices and that angiotensin-II in coronavirus disease 2019–induced shock warrants further study.
During this 1-hour activity expert faculty from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists and the Society of Critical Care Medicine discussed the use of vitamins as adjunctive treatment in patients with COVID-19 as well as the role of Renin-Angiotensin System Inhibition in COVID-19 patients.
Questions from social media, blogs and the various discussion forums, including the new SCCM COVID-19 Discussion Group, were answered. This microlearning content was taken from the COVID-19 Critical Care for Non-ICU Clinicians: Expert Panel Series held on September 9, 2020.

Severe COVID-19 infection can be a form of viral sepsis with occasionally concomitant bacterial infection.
From Critical Care Medicine. The authors measured temporal trends in survival over time in people with severe coronavirus disease 2019 requiring critical care (high dependency unit or ICU) management, and assessed whether temporal variation in mortality was explained by changes in patient demographics and comorbidity burden over time.
From Critical Care Explorations. In this Letter to the Editor, the authors report their findings from an observational study aimed to compare the difference in outcomes of critically ill patients with coronavirus disease 2019 who were intubated early versus later in the disease course.
From Critical Care Explorations. In this case report, the authors note that late extracorporeal membrane oxygenation may be considered in selected patients as a bridge to recovery. Further prospective studies are, however, needed.
