Disclaimer: This website and its content is intended as a resource for clinicians caring for critically-ill COVID-19 patients, based on available evidence and recommendations of governing bodies. The recommendations do not replace clinical judgment or the need for individualized patient care plans. While we attempt to keep this website up-to-date, the literature on COVID-19 is rapidly evolving, and we suggest that practitioners search for the most up-to-date literature on any specific topic. These guidelines will also rapidly evolve as they are implemented into clinical practice and we receive feedback from practitioners. Additionally, local factors should be taken into account if utilized.
