Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation for Coronavirus Disease 2019 in Shanghai, China
Severe cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cannot be adequately managed with mechanical ventilation alone, and ensuring effective, timely, and safe ECMO support in CO VID-19 is key to improving clinical outcomes. Expand
A Case of Transfusion Error in a Trauma Patient With Subsequent Root Cause Analysis Leading to Institutional Change
The patient was inadvertently transfused 2 units of packed red blood cells intended for another patient due to a series of errors, and the patient recovered from his near-fatal injuries. Expand
Establishing and Managing a Temporary Coronavirus Disease 2019 Specialty Hospital in Wuhan, China
Temporary COVID-19 specialty hospitals proved to be useful in the control of an infectious crisis in a large epicenter, and hopefully this approach provides a blueprint for the management of futureExpand
Emergence of Low-density Inflammatory Neutrophils Correlates with Hypercoagulable State and Disease Severity in COVID-19 Patients
It is concluded that the LDIB subset contributes to COVID-19-associated coagulopathy (CAC) and could be used as an adjunct clinical marker to monitor disease status and progression and identify patients who are trending towards LDIB crisis. Expand

Hypercoagulability and secondary hyperfibrinolysis during ECMO support in COVID-19 patients are common and possibly increase the propensity for thrombotic events and failure of the oxygenator. Expand
Artificial Intelligence in Echocardiography for Anesthesiologists.
Artificial intelligence is playing an increasingly important role in the medical field and could help anesthesiologists analyze complex echocardiographic data while adding increased accuracy and consistency to interpretation. Expand

A specific low-density neutrophil population correlates with hypercoagulation and disease severity in hospitalized COVID-19 patients
The present study identified the emergence of a low-density inflammatory neutrophil (LDN) population expressing intermediate levels of CD16 (CD16Int) in patients with COVID-19, and suggested that the CD16Int LDN subset contributes to CO VID-19–associated coagulopathy, systemic inflammation, and ARDS.

  • 29 September 2020
The severity of pre-intubation hypoxia may be associated with a poorer outcome of patients with COVID-19 undergoing invasive mechanical ventilation and larger, multi-institutional, prospective studies should be conducted to confirm these preliminary results. Expand
Cardiovascular Changes in Patients With COVID-19 From Wuhan, China
Hypertension was a common comorbidity among hospitalized patients with COVID-19, and cardiac injury was the most common complication, and abnormal AAO and LA size were found to be associated with severe inflammation and heart injury. Expand
