Characterisation and outcomes of ARDS secondary to pneumonia in patients with and without SARS-CoV-2: a single-centre experience
Whether patients with SARS-CoV-2 ARDS are clinically distinct, therefore requiring alternative management strategies, compared with other patients with ARDS is determined, and a single-centre retrospective study comparing the characteristics and outcomes of patients withARDS with and without SARS/CAP-ARDS is reported.
How to approach the mental state examination
What to look for and ask when assessing patients’ emotions, thoughts, and behaviour is studied in the context of clinical practice.

This paper is the first to explore the roles of social determinants of health, including specific IMDS sub-indices with indicators for household overcrowding deprivation, indoor housing quality deprivation and outdoor air pollution deprivation as modulators of presentation, Intensive Care Unit(ITU) admission and outcomes among COVID19 patients of all ethnicities.

Air pollution and housing quality deprivation are potential modulators of presentation with multi-lobar pneumonia, which has urgent implications for supporting front line clinical decisions, disseminating practical advice around applying social distancing messages at the household level and informing wider pandemic strategy.
The ABCDE approach explained
The ABCDE approach may help you deal with acutely ill patients systematically and improve the quality of life for patients and their loved ones.
Real-world evaluation of rapid and laboratory-free COVID-19 triage for emergency care: external validation and pilot deployment of artificial intelligence driven screening
COVID-19 admission risk tools should include multiethnic age structures, multimorbidity and deprivation metrics for air pollution, household overcrowding, housing quality and adult skills
Ethnic minorities exhibit higher multimorbidity despite younger age structures and disproportionate exposure to unscored risk factors including obesity and deprivation, which are mortality risk factors.
Utility of severity assessment tools in COVID-19 pneumonia: a multicentre observational study.
None of the scores examined accurately predicted ESAE in SARS-CoV-2 infection, and non-validated scores should not be used to inform clinical decision making in COVID-19.
COVID-19 risk stratification tools should incorporate multi-ethnic age structures, multimorbidity and deprivation metrics for air pollution, household overcrowding, housing quality and adult skills
BAME subgroups exhibit younger age structures resulting in CURB65 underscoring and disproportionate exposure to unscored risk factors:sex, obesity, multimorbidity and deprivation, which are associated with multilobar pneumonia on presentation and ITU admission.
