SCCM is updating its SCCM Connect Community. Access to SCCM Connect may be limited until April 23.
SCCM has announced the cancelation of the 2022 Critical Care Congress in-person event and the postponement of the virtual event to April 18-21, 2022. Please visit sccm.org/congress2022 for important details.
The first outcomes of VIRUS were recently published in Critical Care Medicine. More than 20 manuscripts are being prepared for publication during the next several months. Additionally, sites have been invited to submit ancillary study ideas drawing on registry data. Of the 150 proposed, more than 60 have been approved.
Join the registry today and contribute to this important data collection.
This presentation is an overview of age distribution as it relates to severity in COVID-19 patients.
AHA published a new blog post from an LLN member hospital titled, The Pandemic. “How a Bold, New Strategy Took on Health Care Inequities During the Pandemic,” authored by Luminis Health Chief Diversity Officer Tamiko Stanley.

From Critical Care Explorations
The authors believe that current illness severity scoring systems, which usually update only when clinicians measure vital signs or laboratory values, are poorly suited for early detection of this kind of rapid clinical deterioration, and therefore propose that continuous predictive analytics monitoring, a new approach to bedside management, is more useful.
This presentation discusses the mortality factors regarding COVID-19. This is SCCM curated COVID-19 microlearning content.
From Critical Care Medicine
In this editorial, the authors discuss the factors behind why patients had a higher likelihood of surviving coronavirus disease 2019 in June 2020 compared to March 2020.
From Critical Care Explorations. This review article investigates how gender difference can affect the disease severity of COVID-19 infection.
From Critical Care Medicine. In this article, the authors describe how the Society of Critical Care Medicine Discovery Viral Infection and Respiratory Illness Universal Study coronavirus disease 2019 registry sought to develop and implement prespecified best practices combined with grassroots efforts from clinical sites worldwide in order to develop clinically useful knowledge in response to a pandemic.
From Critical Care Medicine
The authors aim to provide hands-on statistical guidelines for harmonizing heterogeneous endpoints in coronavirus disease 2019 clinical trials.
From Critical Care Explorations In this observational study, the authors successfully identified significant genetic factors in OAS1 and IL1B genes using a candidate gene approach study as valuable information for further mechanistic investigation and predictive model building.
From Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. In this letter to the editor, the authors state that the understanding of the immunopathogenesis of SARS-CoV-2 infection is important not only to understand the epidemiologic and age-related differences in COVID-19, but it is critical for the identification of appropriate treatment, as well as for the development of a highly immunogenic vaccine with low risk of antibody dependent enhancement.
From Critical Care Medicine. In this study from Iceland, which had early adoption of widespread testing, the authors report a lower overall ratio of ICU admissions for coronavirus disease 2019 among severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 positive patients and a lower hospital mortality for patients treated in the ICU for coronavirus disease 2019 compared with initial reports from Italy and China.
This presentation is an overview of symptoms, diagnosis and mortality concerns seen when treating pediatric patients with COVID-19. This is SCCM curated COVID-19 microlearning content.
Critical Care Explorations In this study, the authors concluded that soluble CD14 subtype levels may have prognostic utility in coronavirus disease 2019.
From Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. The authors sought to determine whether currently available pediatric illness severity scores can predict duration of critical care resource use.
From Critical Care Medicine
The authors identified patient characteristics that predict an increased likelihood of death within 30 days of the start of critical care for patients with coronavirus disease 2019, which included age, ethnicity, deprivation, body mass index, and prior dependency, among other characteristics.
From Critical Care Medicine. The authors evaluate the impact of ICU surge on mortality and to explore clinical and sociodemographic predictors of mortality.
From Critical Care Explorations. The authors examined the association between socioeconomic status and the rate of coronavirus disease 2019 infections using public data from Tokyo.
From Critical Care Medicine. The authors sought to determine whether the previously described trend of improving mortality in people with coronavirus disease 2019 in critical care during the first wave was maintained, plateaued, or reversed during the second wave in United Kingdom, when B117 became the dominant strain.
