The number of people infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is increasing dramatically throughout the world [1], and in Italy [2, 3], particularly in the northern region of Lombardy [4]. Regional Italian medical and political authorities have implemented extraordinary measures to contain the spread of the virus. This disease can cause massive diffuse alveolar damage resulting in acute respiratory failure (ARF), which requires, in a high percentage of cases… Expand
Characteristics, outcomes and global trends of respiratory support in patients hospitalized with COVID-19 pneumonia: a scoping review.
TLDR
The most frequent respiratory support in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia is IMV, while NIV and CPAP are less frequently and equally applied, the latter especially in Europe, while data on NIV/CPAP-related mortality is often under-reported. Expand
Never Give Up: Lesson learned from a severe COVID-19 patient
TLDR
The clinical course of a 72-year old Caucasian male admitted for SARSCoV2 pneumonia at the University Hospital in Modena on last March 5th is reported. Expand
Care bundles for improving outcomes in patients with COVID-19 or related conditions in intensive care - a rapid scoping review.
TLDR
This review was not designed to synthesise effectiveness data, assess risk of bias, or characterise the certainty of the evidence, and the focus was on characterising the evidence base and not evaluating the effectiveness or safety of the care bundles or their component parts. Expand
Clinical factors associated with death in 3044 COVID-19 patients managed in internal medicine wards in Italy: comment
TLDR
The authors evaluated the association of death with the main symptoms on admission and found that the presence of productive cough was positively associated, this symptom being a plausible proxy of bacterial superinfection, whereas fever was negatively associated with death, perhaps a proxy of a useful inflammation response. Expand
Helmet CPAP treatment in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia: a multicentre cohort study
TLDR
Helmet CPAP treatment fails in up to 44% of patients with moderate-to-severe hypoxaemic acute respiratory failure due to COVID-19 pneumonia, and the Surviving Sepsis Campaign does not recommend the administration of CPAP for the initial management of severe CO VID-19. Expand
Expert consensus statements for the management of COVID-19-related acute respiratory failure using a Delphi method
TLDR
An international panel of 39 experts developed clinical practice statements on the respiratory management of C-ARF in areas where evidence is absent or limited, and agreed that COVID-19-related acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is clinically similar to other forms of ARDS. Expand
Noninvasive respiratory support outside the intensive care unit for acute respiratory failure related to coronavirus-19 disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Delivering NIRS outside the ICU revealed as a feasible strategy to cope with the massive demand of ventilatory assistance during COVID-19 outbreak as well as the main source of between-study heterogeneity. Expand
Severity of respiratory failure at admission and in-hospital mortality in patients with COVID-19: a prospective observational multicentre study
TLDR
A moderate-to-severe impairment in PaO2/FiO2 was independently associated with a threefold increase in risk of in-hospital mortality and Severity of respiratory failure is useful to identify patients at higher risk of mortality. Expand
Continuous positive airway pressure in COVID-19 patients with moderate-to-severe respiratory failure
TLDR
CPAP can be successfully used in a number of COVID-19 patients with hypoxaemic respiratory failure and gas exchange and radiological findings similar to those generally considered to be indications for invasive mechanical ventilation. Expand
Development of a Critical Care Response - Experiences from Italy During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pandemic
TLDR
Italy was the first western country facing an outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and the COVID19 Lombardy Network organized a structured logistic response and provided scientific evidence to highlight information on CO VID-19 associated respiratory failure. Expand
