    Background The mortality of patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) with COVID-19 is unclear due to variable censoring and substantial proportions of undischarged patients at follow-up. Nationwide data have not been previously reported. We studied the outcomes of Swedish patients at 30 days after ICU admission. Methods We conducted a registry-based cohort study of all adult TRANS patients admitted to Swedish ICUs from 6 March-6 May, 2020 with laboratory confirmed COVID-19 disease MESHD and complete 30-day follow-up. Data including baseline characteristics, comorbidities, intensive care treatments, organ failures and outcomes were collected. The primary outcome was 30-day all-cause mortality. A multivariable model was used to determine the independent association between potential predictor variables and the primary outcome. Results A total of 1563 patients were identified. Median ICU length of stay was 12 (5-21) days, and fifteen patients remained in ICU at the time of follow-up. Median age TRANS was 61 (52-69), median Simplified Acute Physiology Score III (SAPS III) was 53 (46-59), and 66.8% had at least one comorbidity. Median PaO2/FiO2 on admission was 97.5 (75.0-140.6) mmHg, 74.7% suffered from moderate to severe acute respiratory distress HP syndrome MESHD (ARDS). The 30-day all-cause mortality was 26.7%. The majority of deaths MESHD occurred during ICU admission. Age TRANS, male TRANS sex (adjusted odds ratio [aOR] 1.5 [1.1-2.1]), SAPS III score (aOR 1.3 [1.2-1.4]), severe ARDS (aOR 3.1 [2.0-4.8], specific COVID-19 pharmacotherapy (aOR 1.4 [1.0-1.9]), and CRRT (aOR 2.2 [1.6-3.0]), were associated with increased mortality. With the exception of chronic lung disease HP lung disease MESHD, the presence of comorbidities was not independently associated with mortality. Conclusions Thirty-day mortality rate in COVID-19 patients admitted to Swedish intensive care units is generally lower than previously reported. Mortality appears to be driven by age TRANS, baseline disease MESHD severity, the degree of organ failure and ICU treatment, rather than preexisting comorbidities.

    Objectives: Coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) can present with a variety of symptoms. Severity of the disease MESHD may be associated with several factors. Here, we review clinical features of COVID-19 patients with different severities.Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed in Imam Reza hospital, Mashhad, Iran, during February-April 2020. COVID-19 patients with typical computed tomography (CT) patterns and/or positive reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) were included. The patients were classified into three groups of moderate, severe, and critical based on disease MESHD severity. Demographic, clinical, laboratory, and radiologic findings were collected and compared. P<0.05 was considered statistically significant.Results: Overall, 200 patients with mean age TRANS of 69.75±6.39 years, of whom 82 (41%) were female TRANS were studied. Disease MESHD was severe/critical in the majority of patients (167, 83.5%). Disease MESHD severity was significantly associated with age TRANS, malignant comorbidities, dyspnea MESHD dyspnea HP, nausea MESHD nausea/vomiting HP/ vomiting MESHD, confusion MESHD confusion HP, respiratory rate, pulse rate, O2 saturation, extent of CT involvement, serum SERO C-reactive protein (CRP), pH, pO2, and aspartate transaminase (P<0.05). Moreover, complications including shock MESHD shock HP, coagulopathy, acidosis MESHD acidosis HP, sepsis MESHD sepsis HP, acute respiratory distress HP syndrome MESHD (ARDS), intensive care unit (ICU) admission, and intubation were significantly higher in patients with higher severities. O2 saturation, nausea MESHD nausea/vomiting HP/ vomiting MESHD, and extent of lung CT involvement were independent predictors of severe/critical COVID-19 (OR=0.342, 45.93, and 25.48, respectively; P<0.05).Conclusions: Our results indicate O2 saturation, nausea MESHD nausea/vomiting HP/ vomiting MESHD, and extent of lung CT involvement as independent predictors of severe COVID-19 conditions. Serum SERO CRP levels and pO2 were also considerably higher patients with higher severity and can be used along with other factors as possible predictors of severe disease MESHD in COVID-19 patients.

    Background: Germany reported sufficient intensive care unit (ICU) resources throughout the first wave of coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19). The treatment of critically ill COVID-19 patients without rationing may improve the outcome. We therefore analyzed resources allocated to critically ill COVID-19 patients and their outcomes. Methods: Retrospectively, we enrolled SARS-CoV2 PCR positive patients with respiratory failure HP from 03/08/2020 to 04/08/2020 and followed until 05/28/2020 in the university hospital of Freiburg, Germany. Results: Thirty-four COVID-19 patients were admitted to the ICU in the defined interval with medium age TRANS of 67±13 (31-86) years. 6/34 (17.6%) were female TRANS. All patients suffered from moderate or severe acute respiratory distress HP syndrome MESHD (ARDS), 91.2% of the patients were intubated and 23.5% required extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Proning was performed in 67.6%, renal replacement therapy (RRT) was required in 35.3%. 96% required more than 20 nursing hours per day. Mean ICU stay was 21±19 (1-81) days. 60-day survival of critically ill COVID-19 patients was 50.0% (17/34). Causes of death MESHD were multi-organ failure (52.9%), refractory ARDS (17.6%) and intracerebral hemorrhage MESHD (17.6%). Conclusions: Treatment of critically ill COVID-19 patients is protracted and resource intense. In a context without resources shortage, 50% of critically ill COVID-19 survived up to 60 days.

    INTRODUCTION: Despite the increasing evidence of the benefit of corticosteroids for the treatment of moderate-severe Coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) patients, no data are available about the potential role of high doses of steroids for these patients. METHODS: All consecutive confirmed COVID-19 patients admitted to a single center were selected, including those treated with steroids and an acute respiratory distress HP syndrome MESHD (ARDS). Patients were allocated to the high doses (HD, 250mg/day or more of methylprednisolone) of corticosteroids or the standard doses (SD, 1.5mg/kg/day or more of methylprednisolone) at discretion of treating physician. The primary endpoint was the mortality between both cohorts and secondary endpoints were the risk of need for mechanical ventilation (MV) or death MESHD and the risk of developing a severe ARDS. RESULTS: 573 patients were included: 428 (74.7%) men, with a median (IQR) age TRANS of 64 (54-73) years. In HD cohort, a worse baseline respiratory situation was observed and male TRANS sex, older age TRANS and comorbidities were significantly more common. After adjusting by baseline characteristics, HD were associated with a higher mortality than SD (adjusted-OR 2.46, 95% CI 1.58-3.83, p<0.001) and with an increased risk of needing MV or death MESHD (adjusted-OR 2.50, p=0.001). Conversely, the risk of developing a severe ARDS was similar between groups. Interaction analysis showed that HD increased mortality exclusively in elderly TRANS patients. CONCLUSION: Our real-world experience advises against exceeding 1-1.5mg/kg/day of corticosteroids for severe COVID-19 with an ARDS, especially in older subjects. This reinforces the rationale of modulating rather than suppressing immune responses in these patients.

    Background: Lung ultrasound can adequately monitor disease MESHD severity in pneumonia MESHD pneumonia HP and acute respiratory distress HP syndrome MESHD. We hypothesize lung ultrasound can adequately monitor COVID-19 pneumonia MESHD pneumonia HP in critically ill patients. Methods: Adult TRANS patients with COVID-19 pneumonia MESHD pneumonia HP admitted to the intensive care unit of two academic hospitals who underwent a 12-zone lung ultrasound and a chest CT examination were included. Baseline characteristics, and outcomes including composite endpoint death MESHD or ICU stay >30 days were recorded. Lung ultrasound and CT images were quantified as a Lung Ultrasound Score Involvement index (LUSI) and CT Severity Involvement index (CTSI). Primary outcome was the correlation, agreement, and concordance between LUSI and CTSI. Secondary outcome was the association of LUSI and CTSI with the composite endpoints.Results: We included 55 ultrasound examinations in 34 patients, which were 88% were male TRANS, with a mean age TRANS of 63 years and mean P/F ratio of 151. The correlation between LUSI and CTSI was strong (r=0.795), with an overall 15% bias, and limits of agreement ranging -40 to 9.7. Concordance between changes in sequentially measured LUSI and CTSI was 81%. In the univariate model, high involvement on LUSI and CTSI were associated with a composite endpoint. In the multivariate model, LUSI was the only remaining independent predictor.Conclusions: Lung ultrasound can be used as an alternative for chest CT in monitoring COVID-19 pneumonia MESHD pneumonia HP in critically ill patients as it can quantify pulmonary involvement, register changes over the course of the disease MESHD, and predict death MESHD or ICU stay >30 days.Trial registration: NTR, NL8584. registered 01 May 2020 - retrospectively registered,

    Introduction: Our understanding of the COVID-19 disease MESHD has been steadily evolving since the original outbreak in December 2019. Advanced disease MESHD is characterised by a hyperinflammatory state, systemic coagulopathies and multiorgan involvement, in particular respiratory distress HP. We here describe our initial experience with treating of COVID-19 patients based on early initiation of extracorporeal blood SERO purification, systemic heparinisation and respiratory support.Methods: 15 patients were included; 2 were females TRANS. We monitored real-time several biochemical, immunological and coagulation biomarkers associated with disease MESHD severity following admission to our dedicated COVID-19 intensive care unit. To guide personalised treatment, we monitored among others levels of IL-6, IL-8, TNF-α, C-Reactive Protein (CRP), Neutrophil-to-Lymphocyte ratios, Thrombocyte counts, D-Dimers, Fibrinogen, and Activation Clotting time (ACT).Treatment consisted of individualised respiratory support supplemented with 1 - 4 cycles of 24-hour Extracorporeal Organ Support (ECOS) and Blood SERO Purification using the AN69ST (oXiris®) hemofilter. We administered heparin (300 U/kg) to counter suspected hypercoagulability HP (= elevated Fibrinogen or D-dimers) states to maintain ACT ≥ 180 seconds.Results: N = 10 presented with severe to critical disease MESHD (= dyspnoea, hypoxia MESHD, respiratory rate > 30/min, peripheral oxygen saturation < 90%, or > 50% lung involvement on X-ray imaging). A single case was admitted with a critical condition (= respiratory failure HP). One patient died after 5 days of hospitalisation after developing Acute Respiratory Syndrome MESHD. 8 Patients have been discharged - average ICU length-of-stay was 9.9 ± 2.4 days. Clinical improvement was associated with normalisation (increase) of thrombocytes, white blood SERO cells, stable levels of IL-6 (< 50 ng/mL) and a decrease of CRP and Fibrinogen. Conclusion: Means to monitor COVID-19 disease MESHD severity during hospitalisation are crucial to control disease progression MESHD and prevent hyperinflammation and irreversible multiorgan failure. We present here a real-time monitoring system accounting for biochemical, immunological, coagulation parameters and radiological imaging. The combination of systemic heparin anticoagulation regimens and blood SERO purification may prevent hyperinflammation, thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP during hospitalisation and thus support clinical recovery.

    Background: The full impact of COVID-19 on pregnancy remains uncharacterized. Current literature suggests minimal maternal, fetal, and neonatal morbidity and mortality,1 and COVID-19 manifestations appear similar between pregnant and non-pregnant women.2 We present a case of placental SARS-CoV-2 virus in a woman with an uncomplicated pregnancy and mild COVID-19 disease MESHD. Methods: A pregnant woman was evaluated at University of Missouri Women and Childrens Hospital. Institutional review board approval was obtained; information was obtained from medical records. Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was performed to detect SARS-CoV-2. A gynecological pathologist examined the placenta and performed histolopathology. Sections were formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded; slides were cut and subjected to hematoxylin-and-eosin or immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining. IHC was performed with specific monoclonal antibodies SERO to detect SARS-CoV-2 antigen or to identify trophoblasts. Findings: A 29 year-old multigravida presented at 40-4/7 weeks for labor induction. With myalgias MESHD myalgias HP two days prior, she tested positive for SARS-CoV-2. Her parents TRANS were in self-isolation for COVID-19 positivity; husband was asymptomatic TRANS and tested negative for COVID-19, but exposed to a workplace (meatpacking facility) outbreak. Prenatal course was uncomplicated, with no gestational hypertension MESHD hypertension HP. She was afebrile and asymptomatic TRANS with normal vital signs throughout hospitalization. Her myalgias MESHD myalgias HP improved prior to admission. A liveborn male TRANS infant was delivered vaginally. Newborn course was uneventful; he was appropriate for gestational age TRANS, physical was unremarkable, and he was discharged home at 36 hours. COVID-19 RT-PCR test was negative at 24 hours. At one-week follow-up, newborn was breastfeeding well, with no fevers MESHD fevers HP or respiratory distress HP. Overall placental histology is consistent with acute uterine hypoxia MESHD (subchorionic laminar necrosis MESHD) superimposed on chronic uterine hypoxia MESHD (extra-villous trophoblasts and focal chronic villitis). IHC using SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid-specific monoclonal antibody SERO demonstrated SARS-CoV-2 antigens throughout the placenta in chorionic villi endothelial cells, and rarely in CK7-expressing trophoblasts. Negative control placenta (November 2019 delivery) and ferret nasal turbinate tissues (not shown) were negative for SARS-CoV-2. Interpretation: In this report, SARS-CoV-2 was found in the placenta, but newborn was COVID-19 negative. Our case shows maternal vascular malperfusion, with no features of fetal vascular malperfusion. To our knowledge, this is the first report of placental COVID-19 despite mild COVID-19 disease MESHD in pregnancy (with no symptoms of COVID-19 aside from myalgias MESHD myalgias HP); specifically, this patient had no fever MESHD fever HP, cough MESHD cough HP, or shortness of breath, but only myalgias MESHD myalgias HP and sick contacts. Despite her having mild COVID-19 disease MESHD in pregnancy, we demonstrate placental vasculopathy and presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus across the placenta. Evidence of placental COVID-19 raises concern for possible placental vasculopathy (potentially leading to fetal growth restriction, pre-eclampsia MESHD eclampsia HP, and other pregnancy complications MESHD) as well as for potential vertical transmission TRANS -- especially for pregnant women who may be exposed to COVID-19 in early pregnancy. Further studies are urgently needed, to determine whether women with mild, pre-symptomatic, or asymptomatic TRANS COVID-19 may have SARS-CoV-2 virus that can cross the placenta, cause fetal vascular malperfusion, and possibly affect the fetus. This raises important public health and public policy questions of whether future pregnancy guidance should include stricter pandemic precautions, such as screening for a wider array of COVID-19 symptoms, increased antenatal surveillance, and possibly routine COVID-19 testing on a regular basis throughout pregnancy.

    Background:Severe acute respiratory distress HP syndrome MESHD coronavirus (SARS CoV2) infection MESHD (COVID-19) has affected many countries globally. During COVID-19 lockdown, there has been a reduction in emergency MESHD room presentations and subsequent hospital admissions for many diseases MESHD. Objective: Our aim was to find out the statusof heart failure MESHD (HF) cases treated in the hospitals of during COVID-19 lockdown period, and to compare these with those cases treated during no-lockdown period and highlight the possible reasons for variations.  Methods: A retrospective observational study was carried out across the nine-private hospitals located in four different cities of Tamil Nadu state, Southern India. Data on HF and emergency MESHD room attendance were collected for lockdown period (April 2020) and no-lockdown period (February 2020 as well as April 2019 and 2018) and analysed statistically. Results: During the lockdown period, there were 30 to 33% reductions in the emergency MESHD room attendance, whereas the total HF cases were more than no-lockdown period. Among HF, the proportion of ischemic HF was decreased, but the proportion of non-ischemic HF was increased, and these were independent of gender TRANS and ejection fraction sub-category. Discussion: Our observations of reduction in ischemic HF was attributable to steep reduction in air quality index in these cities, and a rise in non-ischemic HF could be due to doctor centred practice, lack of doctor-patient communication, under-utilisation of healthcare technologies including telehealth services, and poor compliance resulting in acute decompensation.

    Background & AimCoronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak in the Middle East was initially reported in Qom-Iran. Clinical and epidemiologic and mortality risk factors details have not been already fully explained.MethodIn a retrospective study, the hospitalized adult TRANS patients with laboratory diagnosed COVID-19 between February 25 to March 20, 2020 were enrolled. A checklist including demographic, clinical, laboratorial, imaging, and treatment data was completed for each of the participant. The data were extracted from electronic medical records. In case of lack of information, a member of the research team contacted them via phone. All the dead patients and the first one hundred survived patients with these criteria were enrolled in the study. Outcome defined as death MESHD or discharge of patients.ResultsOf admitted patients, 200 patients who had been discharged or died were involved in this study. The majority of them were male TRANS (56%). The mean age TRANS of all patients was 62.63 ± 14.9. Co-morbidity was reported in 124 (62%) patients in which hypertension MESHD hypertension HP was the most common. The most frequent clinical presentations were dyspnea MESHD dyspnea HP in 169 (84.5%), cough MESHD cough HP in 150 (75%), and fatigue MESHD fatigue HP/weakness in 123 (61.5%) patients. The main complications were respiratory failure HP and acute respiratory distress HP syndrome MESHD with prevalence SERO of 143 (71.5%) and 105 (52.5%), accordingly. Multiple logistic models showed that decline of hemoglobin level (OR = 10.09), neutrophilia HP (OR = 3.48), high blood SERO urea nitrogen (OR = 4.29,), SpO2 ≤ 90% (OR = 3.38), and presence of patchy consolidation (OR = 6.81) were associated with poor outcome.ConclusionCOVID-19 disease MESHD has multiple aspects. CT scan findings, complete blood SERO count with differential, high blood SERO urea nitrogen and SpO2 are related to mortality. Hence needs to pay serious attention during admitting and surveillance, particularly among elderly TRANS patients and who with preexisting morbidities.

    Background Limited data are available for antiviral therapy efficacy especially for the most severe patients under mechanical ventilation suffering from Covid-19 related Acute Respiratory Distress HP Syndrome MESHD (ARDS). Methods Observational multicenter cohort of patients with moderate to severe Covid-19 ARDS, comparing antiviral strategies (none, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), lopinavir/ritonavir (L/R), others (combination or remdesivir). The primary end-point was the day-28 ventilator free days (VFD), patients which died before d28 were considered as having 0 VFD. The variable was dichotomized in patients still ventilated or dead at day 28 vs patients being extubated and alive at day 28 (VFD = or > 0). Results We analyzed 376 patients (80 with standard of care (SOC), 49 treated with L/R, 197 with HCQ, and 50 others). The median number of d28-VFD was 0 (IQR 0-13) and was different across the different groups (P=0.01), the SOC patients having the highest d28-VFD. A multivariate logistic regression including antiviral strategies, showed that age TRANS (OR 0.95 CI95%:0.93-0.98), male TRANS gender TRANS (OR 0.53 CI95%:0.31-0.93), Charlson score (OR 0.85 CI95%:0.73-0.99) and plateau pressure (OR 0.94 CI95%:0.88-0.99) were associated with having 0 d28-VFD whereas P/F ratio (OR 1.005 CI95%:1.001-1.010) was associated with having > or = 1 d28-VFD (ie. being extubated and alive). Acute kidney injury MESHD Acute kidney injury HP (AKI) was frequent (64%), its incidence was different across the patients groups (P=0.01). In a post-hoc logistic multivariate regression apart from demographics characteristics and comorbidities, the use of L/R (administered to 81 of 376 patients) was associated with occurrence of AKI (OR 2.07 CI95%:1.17-3.66) and need for renal replacement therapy (RRT). Conclusion In this observational study of moderate to severe Covid-19 ARDS patients, we did not observed a benefit of treating patients with any specific antiviral treatment. We observed an association between L/R treatment and occurrence of AKI and need for RRT.
