Is COVID-19 just atypical acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)? 

Multidisciplinary faculty will discuss the research and varying answers to this question with a focus on ventilatory management in this SCCM webcast, A Review of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome and COVID-19: Part 2.

Faculty will also cover evidence-based best practices for airway management now that more is known about COVID-19. Faculty and attendees can participate in an interactive discussion format.

This is the second of a two-part review on ARDS and COVID-19. The first installment is accessible here.
The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) and the American Association of Respiratory Care (AARC) partnered to produce this webinar on COVID-19.
